A. few of the receipts for prize money . v have not been'returned to your secre tary. , I think it would be advisable to draw all cheques payable to order, as it se&ins impossible to get prize takers to return receipt's.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 16 May 1914

[ OF RURAL INTEREST (By, "Bustieus.") It is plain that tho investigations of , the Closer Settlement Commission are i going to bring about some disagreeable revolutions as to tho manner in which the important business of settling the land has boon conducted.. It cannot ba said that tho revelation of the fact that there lias been egregious bungling—.to put it mildly—will occasion surprise. Tho existence of that -fact has been known for years. Bub most people would hardly credit .the extent ol' that bungling, wen as revealed by the entry of the Commission upon the fringe of * enquiry. A. few details published as to the conditions found by the Com mission on the first property visited— tho Allambee Estate—are illuminating. They serve to give an idea of what is to come, Allambee Estatee contains •5023 acres, and was built -up by pur chasers from thirteen adjoining land owners. Tho average price paid^or acre was £6/6/4, tho total purchase money, including discount on deben tures, represe...

It is obvious that modern toap-making is, generally speaking, founded on scientific lines, and run on a system of control which turns out a standard product equal to ascertained requirements. Gross adul teration in regard to toilet soaps does not'appear to oxist. ^ The athletic girl is less iiKoly to succumb to temptation than her sister who does not go in for athletics, in the opinion of Dr. Dudley A. Sar gent, director of athletics at Harvard. "Social evils are the result of life's forces being turned into wrong chan nels.
