LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
LADIES' COLUIMN. €.- (By " Ambrosine"). The skirt is going to hall-mark the dr es--is, in fact., doing this now. I can only offer one opinion: that the spring-spread hip is going to be con demned by all except. extremists. Hav ing said that I glance at the blouse-I refer to the dominating note. In this department we have everything that is beautiful, and very little that calls for condemnation. 'he frill has grown like a. flower--bud to bloom. Bit by bit the Medici has expanded till we are one remove from an irregularly formed ruff. The swelled front, which is outlined with a frill is to be exploited. frill to short sleeve in keeping, or to longer in the form of an hour-glass. The designers the other side of the world are nothing if not resourceful to names. The wrist-frill, which is drawn in at centre witlh ribbon, is very aptly described. Buttons are an eteet-ra we shall see in less striking form. While plenty may be used, either for use or decoration, they will be of much reduced...

REUTER'S CABLES. SOUTH AFRICAN CRISIS. THE GOVERNMENT'S DEFENCE CAPETOWN, WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
REUTE g'S CABLES. SOUTH AFRICAN CRISIS. THE GOVERNMENT'S DEFENCE CAPETOWN, WEDNESDAY. The House of Assembly was crowded this afternoon, when the Minister of Defence, Gbneral Smuts, moved the second reading of the bill indemnifying the Government for its actions during the period of martial law. General Smuts spoke for four hours in vindication of the action of the Government. He emphasised the fact that the syndicalist character of the agitation compelled the Government to mobilise a larger army than that of the South African republics at the time of the outbreak of the Boer war. He reviewed the events of the strike of July last and the speeches of the deported men since, and accused Bain of inciting the natives to strike. General Smuts will finish his speech on Thursday.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
No movement was ever fairly con demned because of the fanatical zeal of its extremists. Its credentials and aspirations are examined dis passionately by the silent and thoughtful mass of citizens who held aloof from strife, and who are the reserve of considered power that in time of grave danger decide the issue and shape the course of a nation. They pay no slavish tribute to any political party in particular. Their concern is the national welfare and well-being. And with them, in the last analysis, rests the hope of the democracy. They are neither politically dominated nor press ridden; and they are in no fear at all of the warring sections in the community that perennially set society at defiance. They are the class of citizens that can always be relied upon to repeat the insistent lesson they enforced upon the Brisbane syndicaliste ; and to effec tively deal through the franchise with any class oligarchy. It is the class that, at this moment and for three years past, has begun to...

TRANSVAAL DIVIDENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
TRANSVAAL DIVIDENDS. With the dividends distributed in 191. by the Transvaal gold-min ing companies the aggregate return to shareholders since the discovery of this wonderful field is brought up to £100,000.000. The coumpilat ion made by the " Financial Timnes" gives the total payments for 191_ as £8,516,956, as compared with £8,210,362 in 1912 and £S,,06,4-37 in 1911. In view of the serious dislocation of the industry through labor troubles about the middle of last year, it would not have been surprising had the total payments fallen short of the 1912 figures. In stead, however, an increase of £306,594 is shown, The chief con tributor to the total was the Crown mines with a sum of £1,034,116, which is the same as the payment for the previous year, and represents a return of 110 per cent. on the capital of the company. Even that large payments left a surpius of estimated earnings of £253.7?4. The East Rand comes second on the list with a total distribution of £611,474, or the same a...
STAWELL QUARTZ MINES. WEST AUSTRALIAN OPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
STAWiELL QUARTZ MINES. WEST AUSTRALIAN OPTION. Negotiations have been concluded. between Mr i. Hamilton, general, manager of the Great Boulder Pro pirietary, W\est Australia, and the. owners of a group of Stawell mines, including the Magdaclacum-Moon light., for an option, with a view to purchasing. There is much need of a stimulating influence in Vietorian quartz-mining at present, when the talk of closing down o!d atd well known mines is so frequently heard. The Great Boulder Company has been on the look-out for a uroperty for some time, several properties in Western Australia having been examined and declined. '1So far, possibly to the regret of the com pany's officials, no \W 'stern. Austra lian property has come up to re quirements, and whtn the SItwel group of properties w:r brought under his notice, Mr Hamilton wvs impressed with their pno sibiLtie .

SWIMMING CLUB. SUCCESSFUL CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
SWIMMING CLUB. ------- SUCCESSFUL CARNIVAL. Consequent on the postponement of their second carnival, the Mary borough Swimming Club had the good fortune to experience ideal weather on Wednesday evening. As a result there was an excellent attendance of the public, the baths being apparently noted the coolest place on such a close night. The gate takings amounted to £10, which, of course, does not include members tickets. Taken on the whole, the carnival may be said to have been a success. At the present time Maryborough is as short of good swimmers as it is of good pedestrians. A few years ago the Swimming Club carnivals were equal to any up-country, and this, to a large extent was due to the quality of the swimmers the town produced. Such sterling per formers as W. H. Finney (who, by the way, was recently beaten only by inches for the breast-stroke championship of Australia)-Fred Heriot, Alf. Outtrim, Alf. Monks, Jim La Roche, Wm. Smith, and other good men who figured in con tests o...
GENERAL NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 6 February 1914
GENERAL NEWS, Last week a thief entered the vestry at St. Paul's -Church, Clunes, and carried away half a bottle of Communion wine. The theft is at tributed to one of the numerous tramps who have visited the town during the past week. Those who believe in the divining rod have received a shock to their faith. On "Mr S. H. Wilmott's pro perty, at Yarraman, N.S.W., several expert diviners pronounced a certain spot to be waterless, but the owners decided to sink. A splendid supply of good water was struck at 140ft., the water rising over 100ft. in the bore. " Nearly 100deg. in the shade; no fruit for sick ; by act of Parliament no fruit will be sold in this shop to day; fruit luncheons, salads and strawberries and cream can be ob tained in the cafe as usual." By this and similar announcements in the windows in certain city shops in Melbourne on Wednesday, the public was made aware that retail fruiterers were out on holiday, and fruit could not be bought within a ten-mile radius of the ...
