OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THREE BLIND MICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
U ova mELomuW nLETr'L . - THREE" BLIND' MICE. When the experiment of appointing stipendiary' stedards to watch the do ings of owners, trainers, jockeys, and horses on registered racecourses was de. termined upon much was hoped as a result from the new depart'ure. Before long, however-*it b'e:ame'apparent that the "stipes" "wre.onz occision as short sighted as the honoraries whom they displaced' in the management of racing and the detection of rigs and fakes. So noticeable was this opaqueness of vision that the trio of stipendiary stewards became known as the Three Blind Mice, and their doings, or rather lack of do ings, bec:rame one of the standing jests in raring circles: Still, some good re sulted, and undoubtedly since their ad vent racing-has become a bit cleaner, and the attempted- swindles less glaring and-frequent than of old. The public, however, especialy thiat portion of it that bets freely, was not satisfied with the very mild improvement noticeable, and murmurs both loud...
GUINEA-PIG AS FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
GUINEA-PIG AS FOOD. Why not eat the guinea-pig . And why not rear guinea-pigs.for the provi. sion market I These are perfectly serious questions. The guinea.pig .(which.is.not a pig at all, but a rodent related to the rabbits, and which does not come from Guinea, but from South America) is as edible as a hare or a 'squirrel-a little bundle of fat, per fectly wholesome flesh. It is small, to be sure, but so are several other game animals that we seek for the table; a full grown en" will weigh nearly 2 lbs.dressed. *y. :The animal, which is really a cavy, is nice in its habits, and feeds wholly on grain and green vegetables. It is not subject to the internal parasites that afflict.so many rabbits, and its dlesh tastes much like that of a squirrel.. Its relatives, the rocky envy, the agouti, and the capybara, are highly " steemed in South America. When the, Spaniards conquered Peru they found, the, ancestors of our pet cavies an ordinary and favorite food. The natives prepared them muc...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
P'- NCG i~TI`BLIQJNOtal' B.ý Now that the holidays are over, work at the local district mines has been re sumed, In several instances, work "was commenced with the night shift cii Sunday, while in other eases opera tions started yesterday morning. Yesterday's " Courier " says: "Dur ing the past year, the Ararat mines have been the chief gold contribu tors, and on this field nothing has oc curred-to.bode a diminution of activi ties. So far as the Ararat mines are concerned, the outlook has never worn a more roseate hue, and Cathcart and Cathcart Central have for an extende'd period been .loing ti.eir share; but it ip from the mines that have not yet made their debut as gold producers that much is expected. In almost every case bores have revealed the presence of payable gold, and the many shares that have been taken up of late at greatly improved prices, needs no words to express the confidence inves tors entertain in the field. !r our last issue there appeared an application for a l...

INSPECTION AND QUICKSTEP. AT THE ARARAT ATHLETIC CLUB'S CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
INSPECTION AND QUICHBTEP. AT .THE :ARARAT ATHLETIC CLUB'S CARNIVAL. Lieutenant W. G. Eastgate, judge of the Quickstep at the recent carnival of the "Ararat Athletic Club, sends us the following report:-' In presenting my report oi' the in spection and Quickstep, I wish to state that I was particularly struck with the way the bands turned; out for inspection. 1 was very pleased with the turn out of the Horsuam Band. . They. pre sented a very smart appearance. If two men had paid' alttle more atten tion to their 'dressing, and the brass drummer had cleaned his brass, they would have scored the possible. Another very good turn out was the Ararat Citizens.. 'This liand has 'never 'paid, more attention to cleanliness than tney did on this occasion. Hair nicely cut and necks shaved. • I had to dde duct. one point from one man for pay ing too much attention to a 'race, and one point for intervals.. The other two bands also presene' d a smart appearance.- I must congratu late the whole of t...
CHANCELLOR'S REAL OBJECT. TO BRING RADICALS AND LABORITES TOGETHER. FOR ELECTION PURPOSES. LONDON, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
CIIHANCELLOR'S REAL OBJECT. TO( BRING RADICALS AND LABOR ITES TOGETHER. FOR ELECTION .PURPOSES. LONDON, Sunday. -:r. -Lloyd George is at present spend. ing a holiday at 4lgiers. - , The .-WObserver " questions whether Mir. Lloydi George's .utterances contajn as much as excited France imagines. The Chancellor's statement, when ex amined, is guarded, and despite, its ex. treme imprudence, appears to be only it ruse to get the forces of Radical ism and Labor together, in view. of the next general election. The real interest in the declaration lies in the fact that if Mr Lloyd ,George is to definitely lead a Radical Socialist combination, with a policy de structive to the sea-power of the Em pire, there will be need for a.new na tional-party to combat the peril. .
AN OLD TIMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
AN OLD TIMER.: An interesting story is going the rounds of the papers just now respecting the recollections of an old companion of the poet, Gordon, With whom he was in a horsebreaking partnership in the south-east of South Australia many years ago. The old man's story is in the main correct, though on two im- portant points he is very much-wrong. He is, for instance, very inisistent in his statement that he and Gordon were the heroes of the Ride from the Wreck, and gives a very graphic account of how he and Gordon, when out in the paddocks, heard of the wreck of the Admella and debouching on the coast by short-cuts known only to themselves, were enabled to carry the first news inland and so cause help to be sent round from Port- land. Unfortunately Mr Livingstone, M.P., by whose father Gordon and Mul- laley, whose recollections are now being told, were employed at the time is very positive that Gordon knew nothing of the wreck for over a fortnight after it occurred, and this tallie...
OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
OBITUARY. &nbsp; It will be learned with sorrow by a large circle of friends that Mrs Isa- bella Cock, relict of the late Peter Robert Cock, died at her residence, Campbell Street, on Sunday night last. The deceased lady, who had for many years been in a delicate state of health, suffering from chest weakness, suc- cumbed to an attack of bronchitis at the age of 63 years. Mrs Cock came out to Australia as a girl, in 1863, and joined her sister, Mrs Gray, of the Norval Hotel, and has almost continu- ously resided at Ararat since then. She leaves.three sons, Messrs. George, Rob- ert, and J. A. Cock; and one daughter, the wife of Mr. G. Nicholls, of the Ararat Asylum for the Insane, to mourn the loss of an exceedingly considerate and loving mother. A sister of the deceased lady survives her, in Iowa, U.S.A. The remains of the deceased will be interred in the Ararat Cemetery this afternoon.
CHARGED WITH INSULTING BEHAVIOUR. A STAINED CAREER. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
CHARGED WITH INSULTING BEHAVIOUR. A STAINED CAREER. At the Ararat Police Court yester- day morning, before Mr. G. Burn and Dr. Hayman, J.sP., a young man named Albert Marsland was charged by Con- stable M'Innes with behaving in an insulting manner in Barkly Street on Christmas Day. The accused pleaded guilty to the of- fence. Constable M'Innes stated that about half-past four o'clock on the after- noon in question he was on duty with Constable M' Kenzie, when he saw the accused at the corner of Barkly and Vincent streets, with a number of other young fellows. He was trying to get his coat off and appeared as though he wanted to fight. As they crossed over the road to where the accused was, he heard him say that he would fight any b— one of them. The other fellows went off in the direction of Alexandria Park, and accused wanted to follow them. Witness gave him a &nbsp; shove off in the opposite direction, and told him he would put him in the lock-up. As accused eventually cam...
CLERGYMAN'S TRAGIC DEATH. FLIGHT FROM HOSPITAL. BODY FOUND IN RIVER. DENILINQUIN (N.S.W.), Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
CLERGYMAN'S TRAGIC DEATH. FLIGHT FROM HOSPITAL. BODY FOUND IN RIVER. DENILIQUIN (N.S.W.), Sunday. A sad drowning accident occurred on Friday night. The Rev. F. A. Wen- born, of St. Paul's Church, had been an inmate of the hospital for a few days, suffering from pneumonia. About half-past 10 o'clock on Friday night, during the temporary absence of a nurse from the private ward, Mr Wen- born, who apparently was delirious, broke through a wire window, and es- aped from the ward. Dr. P. G. Palm- er, who is also a patient in the same ward, did not hear Mr Wenborn leave- ing. Tracks were followed from the hospital front gate to the police sta- tion corner, thence in the direction of the river. The police discovered a handkerchief bearing Mr Wenborn's initials at the edge of the water, and saw footprints in the mud. The river was dragged for several hours, but about 9 o'clock on Saturday morning some boys who were diving found the body within a few yards of the spot where the handkerchief ...
GERMAN NAVY LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
GERMAN NAVY LEAGUE. In the last issue of " The Nation in Arms,'' there is an interesting and instructive account by Miss H. S. Chee- tham of the thirteenth annual meeting of the German Navy League. Grand Admiral von Koerster, the president, in his opening speech, we learn, laid stress on the ominous international sit- uation which "one spark might light up into a blaze of war;" and he pledg- ed the German Navy League, in face of the " revival of French Chauvin- ism " in the west, and the growth of Pan-Slav ambition in the east, to sup- port the additions demanded to Ger- many's land forces. His remarks on Anglo-German relations reflect the ex- traordinary change that has lately come over the German attitude to Britain. While, Admiral von Koerster said, they must in their own interests waive aside Mr. Churchill's suggestion of a holiday year, they would welcome every improvement in their relationship to Britain, and would be glad to march hand in hand with her whenever pos- sible; on...
SEA BRIGANDS. DESPERATE PLOT. CAPTAIN BAILED UP IN CABIN. INTRUDER OVERPOWERED. SAN FRANCISCO, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 6 January 1914
SEA BRIGANDS DESPERATE PLOT CAPTAIN BAILED UP IN CABIN. INTRUDER OVERPOWERED SAN FRANCISCO, Friday. A sensational though abortive at- tempt has been made to rob the steam- er Williamette, which plies along the Californian coast. &nbsp; &nbsp; When the vessel was in the open sea Captain Reiner, who was sitting in his cabin, was confronted by a masked and armed man.. Captain Reiner promptly grappled with the intruder and managed to secure possession of the revolver the man had in his hand. The shouts of the captain attracted members of the ship's crew, who se- cured the man. His behaviour led to the belief at first that he was insane, but later developments showed that his conduct was part of a plot to rob the steamer. A confederate was arrested, and this man declared that he and his companion had planned to rob the ship's safe of the large sum of money it contained, and then compel the pas- sengers and crew to give up all valu- ables. The robbers travelled as pas- &am...

WASHINGTON, Friday. &nbsp; When the Federal troops were routed by the rebels at Ojinaga, Northern &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Mexico, earlier in the week, numbers of the defeated troops fled over the United States frontier, but were driven back into Mexico by American soldiers. Orders have now been issued to the United States military commander in this district that he is to receive the fleeing Mexican Federal troops if they come across the frontier again. Red &nbsp; Cross assistance is to be afforded them but they are in every case to be disarmed.

INDUSTRIAL. SOUTH AFRICAN RAILWAYS AND MINES. BIG STRIKE ON WEDNESDAY. CAPETOWN, Sunday Night. The industrial situation is causing a great deal of anxiety. Unrest is in- creasing amongst the railwaymen, and a big meeting at Pretoria has decided to ask the Government to abandon its retrenchment scheme. Many of the collieries are idle, as the men refuse to work until their claim for 18/ a day, and time and a half overtime is granted. The owners offer 17/ per day for a 57 hour week, and time and a quarter overtime. The men have decided to all go on strike on Wednesday unless the claims are allowed. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
