A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
A NEW ERA IN THE FAR EAST. The Fight for Commercial Supremacy. Mr. T. F. Millard's study of the Far East, contained in his book, "America and the Far Eastern Ques tion," recently published in New York is dominated by two opposite notes, pessimism and a story of progress. He regards the situation that has arisen since the close of the Russian war with alarm ; the Japanese commercial policy in Manchuria is creating a situation which may re sult in war between Japan and America,, he has nothing but criti cism for the existing state of afflairs in Korea; he is convinced that Ja pan aims at the domination of China. And yet, despite all this, he has to tell of world advance. A new Asia has arisen, an Asia growing daily more and more conscious of her own strength. MUKDEN. Take, for example, his description of Mukden. Ten years ago few white men knew the ancient capital of the Manchu kings, In 1990 white refugees were tortured to death in its central square amid indescribable shame and agon...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
The Point Lonsdale branch of the People's Liberal Party held a social in the Public hall last Tues day evening, Mr C. Ward in the chair. The platform had been tastefully decorated by the lady president, Miss Bannister. Mr Kendall; M.P. for Corio, was pre sent and addressed the audience on general politics, during which, of course, the party whose tacties had precipitated the dissolution came in for some criticism. Very little that was new was said, the speaker's mouth being closed on matters of policy until the campaign begins in earnest. Mr MacDonald, secretary of the Corio Liberal party, also spoke, and urged adults to see that their name was on the roll. The evening was enlivened by music and coffee was handed round before proceedings terminated. For Bronchial Coughs, take Woods' Great Peppermint Cure, is 6d. No day has yet been fixed upon for the opening of the new pavilion in the recreation reserve. The football: season is advancing; and it &lt;Aould bi well if the full...
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the " Windsor," Baroness Orczy says : "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Bu da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least; it does not affect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen sportsman, he is unham pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land-and therefore of game--naturally makes hisd own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbaric in its lavish ne...

FRIGHTENED HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
FRIGHTENED HIM. He was a sewing-machine :agent of the most aggressive type. For twenty minutes the lady of the house had been awaiting an oppor tunity to say she already possessed one. At last he paused. Only long enough, however, to thrust a card into the lady's hand. The bit of pasteboard was certainly a novelty. "My name is Sellum," it read, "of the firm of Blang and Company,, sew ing-machine manufacturers, and I in tend to prove to you that it is mad ness to defer purchasing one of our unequalled machines." After a long description of the machine came the following : "You may plead that you are unable to work a machine. I will remove that objection in fifteen min utes, or in three lessons. Will call next Wednesday." When the agent called again, a six foot man opened the door and bland ly remarked : "You're the sewing-machine man, I suppose ?" "Yes; I called last week, and"- "Yes, I know," interrupted the big man. "You don't know me, I sup pose ? My name's Bury, of Bury and Keepu...

CHAPTER XXIII. THE TWO TOWNS. During the afternoon there was great excitement and noise in the -town, and from a front window Dick . watched the motley groups of people who passed up and down the street. After dinner Jason Gnre came in, and held a private conversation with Dick. "Although our laws forbid it," he began, "I am going to give you two - more months of grace. At the end of : thttie - -you must take the oath of allegiarco.. or suffer the conse ---__ quences of refusal z aonwhile you will have plenty of freedom, ana- c* ob serve for yourself the sort of life we lead here." Dick was too prudent to reply to this ultimatum. It would be bad policy,, he reflected, to ruffle the pir ate at such a time. "Will I be permitted to see Miss Ferris ?" he asked. "Not until the two months have ...
THE FARM. WESTERN WOLTHS GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
THE FARM. -1-~ WESTERN WOLTHS GRASS. (Extracted from the Journal of De partment of Agricultpre.) "A great wealth of forage, 15 tons to the acre, is at present being cut for stock-feed at the Ruakura Farmn of Instruction. It is. the Westerr Wolths grass, a variety of rye-grasE said to have originated from a plant plucked by the wayside by a Dutci peasant. At Ruakura it has undoubt edly given the heaviest yield of all rye-grasses, making a rapid dens( growth and providing excellent spring feed, admirably adapted for cutting and carting out to stock. Sown on the 14th of May, it was ready for feeding about the beginning of Oe.to ber. It is generally considered that. a legume and non-legume combination such as peas and oats, is the most desirable green crop, but this will give but a very poor second cut. Western Wolths, on the other hanld, provides several excellent subsequent cuttings. Undoubtedly a grass which in a very, wet season will give an abundance of feed at a critical time for ...
CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 June 1914
CORRECTING FAULTS IN YOUNG CALVES. One of the most difficult habits to i overcome where a number -of--young calves are running in a loose box. :is that of sucking one another, writes an English correspondent. There is a wide difference of opinion regarding the results which may occur. Many claim that small quantities of hair are takei into the stomach, and this is finally matted into a firm ball, which may clog in the stomach or bowels of the calf, resulting in death. The reason for this habit of sucking may in Eome measure suggest a re medy, When- we feed calves with milk from the pail, they drink so rapidly that they fail to relieve the mouth of the saliva which naturally mixes with the milk, while the3 are suck ing. In order to relieve their mouths of the secretion which organs of di gestion demand, they will seek some thing to suck which will rid their mouths of the saliva, which has been retained to a large extent, and their favourite object is some portion of the calf next to ...
WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. ~----+--- Admiral De Horsey is- an excellent raconteur, and from out.. of his fund of anrcdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Reburning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the charge. '"A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his. bayonet perilously near the officer. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger brok...
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. It was the custom in the good old daye, especially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A man named Mahoney was. hanged in this way. At the end of half an hour his body was given to his friendse, who put him in a coffin they had brought with them, and galoped off with him on a cart. But, before they were out of Bight of the gallows authorities, the corpee in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the coffin and shouted "Hooroo I" A "pall," terrified lest .his exhibition of vitality should cause the execu: tioner to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so effectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap pealed -to for a warrant for the cul p...
To-day's Football Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
To-da~y's Footbafl1 Matches.: .-: The chief niatch to-day will be Queenscliff v Artillery, on the local ground. A good game is expected. Griffin is acting field-umpire. The Engineers play Portarlington, on the ground of the latter, which should also prove an interesting game. Watkins as field umpire will make his first appearance this season. Three prominent Artillery foot bailers have taken their departure this week in Ashton, Britnell and Morris. They each have done well, and their loss will be greatly felt in to-day's match. Queenscliff will also be without the services of P. and A. -Johnson to-day, which will help to put both teams on level strength for the match.

Cleopatra Wasn't Handsome. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 June 1914
Ereopatra WTasiit Hianisome. Mrs. Lew Wallace has been writing a nIew book which she calls "The Repose In Egypt." In it shediscusses the Pyra mids, Suez, and Sinai, the Obelisks and Alexandria, and, in connection with her account of the latter city, she tells some entertaining things regarding Cleopatra, who, once in the tropical airs of that old city, rode on swift camels and floated in gilded barges with Antony, and, after years of revel, she was buried there, with imperial pomp, in his tomb. For women who erroneously think that beauty alone pleases, Mrs. Wallace pictures Cleopatra as bewitching in manners, but not personally even pretty. She had command of seven languages, and she knew how to flatter the vanity of men by adapting herself to their varyng moods and exerting. herself to be fascinating. Her whole aim and study was to please and her voice was like a. musical instrument tuned' with many strings. The secret of her success with Antony was that she gave him no time to thi...
