I had been bath ng the child near the fire and had just ;one out to empty the water when I seard screams. I rushed in and found ;hat he had pulled the kettle over and earfully scalded his neck and back. "The skin was dreadfully blistered and inflamed, and the poor child's igony was dreadful to witness.

There 2' were apparent good grounds for the hope b that at length the long lane of ill-luck 3. had taken a right angleo. turn.'. The day was seasonably. warm, with a brisk y north wind, but not oppressively hot.

THE GRAMPIANS ABLAZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 5 February 1914
THI. GRAMPIANS ALAZE. On Sunday fires originated in two places in fall's Gap, somewhere be. tween Mr Warren's place and the tuo nel, and have since assumed gigantic proportions, no fire of equal magnitude having taken place in the Grampians for years. With some difficulty it was kept off Warren's place, and went across the range near the tunnel, and ran down the near side to Pomonal, getting witnin about 200 yards of MSr C. Barnes' orchard before it was turned. It continued along the top and sides of the range, and well on its way towards the Redman, the sight being a thrillinE one after the shades of night had fal len. The fires have, split up into about six sections, and unless a change takes place are likely to burn for some time. Yesterday the fire appeared to be. spreading rapidly.

CYCLING AND MOTOR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 5 February 1914
CYCLING AND MOTOR NOTES. A curious phase of the average meo torist's nature is the peculiar import ance be attaches .to petrol economy, whilst at the same time lie will give very little attention to saving many pounds annually through careful driv ing and care of his tyres. Striving for petrol economy is, of course, quite laudable, but it certainly seems strange to see a motorist striving to save a few pence in fuel consumption, when an'hour or so later he will knock pounds off the value 'of his tyres by careless driving. The motorist who keeps his "Dunlops" properly inflated, eases up and declutches round sharp corners, and uses brake and clutch with discretion, can", almost save enough in' tyre upkeep: to cover half his fuel charges. A novel motor- ear hill climb was reo cently held in France, the contestants having to. stop, their cars at a given point during the climb, reverse for ten yards, and start off again for the top of the hill. The test proved efficiency, flexibility of ...

FREE FIGHT IN CLASSROOM., LONDON, Monday: There has been no settlement of the dispute between the Education authori ties and the school teachers of Hert fordshire, who are demasiding a higher salary. Fifty schools in the county have., been -closed, and it is believed that 30 more will be obliged to follow their lead. Riotous scenes took place to-day at a girls' school at Ledbury. The-girls took possession of the school room, after morning lessons had con. eluded.. They overturned the desks, spilt, ink,. and wrote notices on the blackboards upholding the teachers on strike. Later the larger girls held a meeting in the play ground, at which it was decided to declare a strike of scholar . The girls hustled the new mistress sent in place of the former .one, Who was on strike, out of the school, and then guarded the doors against the entry of the children op. posed to the strike.

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 5 February 1914
MINING INTELLIGENCE. The "Australasian" refers to tie New Langi Logan mine as follows: ''Some little disappointment was felt it the fact that the manager of the \Tow Langi Logan mine (Mr Toole) was ,ot able to go straight into the wash from the rise he had put up from the reef drive. The market in the com. pany's shares was affected by the deo •ay, but Mr Toole is to be commended for his caution. He is responsible not only for the safety of his mine, but al :o for the lives of his workmen, and, that being so, when he found the plre. "'re of water overhead was heavy his duty was to put up an intermediate evel and a jump-up into the gutter. By doing that he would tap the gutter at a higher point, and enable the water to be drawn off gradually. The work of actual mining will now have to be carried out at the New Langi Logan, and, seeing how near the Cathcart is to Ixtinction, and how the Great South :rn has had to close down, it is to be hoped, in the interests of alluvial min* ing in ...

Mr Amery said the party had been greatly impressed with the immense possibilities of Australia.

THE METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 5 February 1914
THE METHODIST CHURCH. To raise £100,000 by way of marking the centenary of the Methodist Church of Australasia is a big order, but it is likely to be the objective of Methodist Conference of Victoria and Tasmania. At the last Methodist Conference held in Melbourne a committee was appoint ed to prepare a scheme, and it was agreed to recommend to the forthcom ing conference that £100,000 be aimed at. Wednesday, 4th March, is the day on which the united conference will be asked to consider the proposal, and, in view of the magnitude of the scheme, the discussion should be interesting. It is considered that Victoria is able to contribute £90,000, and Tasmania £10,000, though this proportion may not be adopted. Already a Victorian citi zen has promised £2000. The last Me thodist Conference recommended that an' attempt be made to raise £50,000, but the church building committee re commended that the sum be fixed at £100,000, and the general committee concurred in this aim.
