Manners of the English [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
Manners of the English The mannmrs of the English are, ot course, notoriously bad, whether they live in tie country or in thle town; but I do not thaik that any one class is worse than another. On the whole, I am inclined to agree with Mr. Ste plhen Reynolds and ivith MIr. Chester toin, that the poor are more ceremonial and courteous than the rich. They are not, it is true, gifted with thed gra ciousness of the Spaniard or the Blro ton peasant. English mechanies or labourers do not struggle with their bag of tools held in their hands, in order to take off their cap to their fellow-worker and to bid him "good morning," as one sees workmen do on the Danish ihighroad. Nor can they refuse a tip-a rare occurrence, I ad mit-with the graciousness of the French workmen who helped Steven son with lhis canoe on his Inland Voy age.-F. E.

CORRECTING ERRORS (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
CORRECTING ERRORS (TO THE EDITO..) Sin,-Will you kindly allow me space to correct some errors re a syndi cate that has been formed to work a copper lode that is supposed to have been discovered near N.S.W. territory and 3 miles from Mt. Kosciusko. The said copper lode was discovered 35 years ago, and is about 70 miles from Mt. Kosciusko, apd on the Tubbutt Station, near Tunrnback Ferry, on the Snowy River, which the Tambo and Orbost shire councils maintain. As to the road the party travelled over on astur day from Orbost to Ilonang, which it is stated a par never trayelled oyer before, 5 know for a faqt that over a dozen cars have travelled over the same road with in the last 1S months, right through from Bairnedale to N.S.W., and from Sydney to Bairnedale and Melbourne. I am sure there is no difficulty in travel ling the road with a motor car, as the fact of them starting from B.~eang and going to Sale iq the day, be'ides riding aom the copper mine in the morning bfdre leaving Bona...
Dairy Records [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
Dairy Records J. A. Ruddick, Dairy and Cold Storage Commissioner, Ottawa, Can ada, writes: "Unless the figures are actually be fore one, the variations in production found in the same herd seem almost incredible. For instance, in three Ontario herds, the difference in yield between the best and the poorest cow runs actually at 8100, 9100 and 10,900 lbs of milk; the extremes in individual cows are 3690 and 17,615 lbs. This proves that neither an occasional weighing or testing of a sample, nor a hasty reckoning of a herd's average yield can possibly give any measure of justic, either to the abundant or to the economical producer, so that the knowledge requisite to building up a good herd has still to be sought. That knowledge can be found in dairy re cords."-(Circular D. and C. S. No. 7.) An increase of 600 lbs of milk per annum or 2 lis a day over a milking period of 300 days from each of the cows in this State would yield over another half million pounds sterling to our yearly reven...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) Something like an American inva sion has taken place in this city. At the theatres, most of the "turns" are supplied by people from that oountry; ragtime has taken possessison of the homes, and the public places where mu sic is made; and the millionaire-con duoted baseball players have been loom ing large, not only as exponents of the game that is to the American what football is to the Australian; but as the lions of social and civic circles. But like the motor racing that was recently similarly "boosted," baseball failed to arouse any enthusiasm, and if the ob jet of bringing a big party of players who ara said to receive annual " re tainers" running into many thousands of dollars, to this country, was, as al leged, simply to promote understanding, of and interest in the game, the men behind the movement are due for a lot of disappointment. Plenty of people went to see the games on the first day. They were certainly rewarded by be...
The Passing of the Poser [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
The Passing of the Poser There are no posers on the grand scale now. Our musicians have lhort hair and pl.y golf. Authors cannot ho distinguisned from ordinary, men. Art students are abandoning their amazing clothes. Even poets have given up poetical looks, and instead of writing proety fancies worry us with poems of the outspoken natural school. Music is in tweeds, literature is in navy blue, and poetry is in a bowler hat. Apparently there is no chance of any return of affectation. The world becomes more natural every day, and every hour some neglected pose dies a natural death. There are no startling and picturesque figures. The glittering Whistler was the last of the artistic masters of pose, the last man willing to spend an hour before a looking-glass, the last man-to use his own word-who could be called * tamazing." For now it is bad form to be amazing, and everyond is ex pected to be as insignificant as pos sible. The only affectation left is the affectation of being natural. ...
SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR WAR FIGHTING INEVITABLE London, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR: WAR FIGHTING INEVITABLE London, Wednesday. The situation in South Africa has become so critical that fighting between the strikers and the police is regarded as inevitable. *Tee Johannesburg Trades' Hall is barricaded, and strikers are patrolling in the neighborhood. The police attempted a raid with a view to the arrest of Bain, Secretary of the Federation of Trades, but the strikers success fully resisted them, several shots being fired. The position of the Cape Colony railway service has improved. The proclamation of martial law meets with general approval. Reports from Natal state that the mine workers are coming out, and the military forces are being concentrated.
MARLO RESERVE [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
MARLO RESERVE c----0----~-- / THE proposal to secure the reser vation of a desirable piece-of land near Marlo for the purposes of public recreation has not yet reached any definite result. Re presentations as to the desirability of securing the place for the. use of the public have been made by public meetings and further sup ported by the shire council, arid five trustees have been appointed, but the Minister of Lands refuses to make any reservation until such time as le is assured that the area will be made use of and improve ments effected thereon. One would suppose that the Lands Department would be alive to the expediency of preserving a site of the kind for future .use, even sup posing that the residents at the present day were not; but the only aspect in which the depart ment views the matter -is that there have been a great many re quests for reservations in all parts of the State, and in the majority of cases where these were granted nothing has been done to improve or util...

The Man Who is Left [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
I he Man Who is Left In the breeding from poorer stock in a land from which the best have been sent forth we find an efficient cause pf. the poverty and weakness in the London slums, and in the hope lessness of the poor throughout Eng land. -MAen who would have risen and banished their own poverty have been in a large degree destroyed; whereas the weakling has been rejected from her armies. Their defects spoil them as soldiers, and they are kept as par ents. The man who is left deter mines the future of every nation. The number of the hopeless and inefficient of our race is disproportionately large in ciomparison with those who are com petent to take care of themselves.

The Biggest Job on Earth. RUNNING THE U.S.A. AS A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
The Biggest Job on Earth. RUNNING THE U.S.A. AS A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. .Under the above attractive title, W. Bayard Hale gives in a. recent num ber of the "W'orld's Waork" as fine a bird's-eye view of the compass of American enterprise, and the scope of its Government, as siny plain man in the street could ask for. Listen to his summary 'of the growth of the United States : "In 1856, when Woodrow Wilson was born, the United States were thirty-four; to-day they are forty eight. Then we possessed no outly ing territory. To-day, we have Alaska, Porto Rico, the Panama Canal Zone, the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii and the Tutuila Island-more than 8000 islands. Our population tlieni was 28 millions; now it is 110 millions. "In 1856 the country possessed 22,000, miles of railroads; to-dcay 250,000. Then, not a telegraph in strument clicked, not a telephone bell tinkled. That year the people of the United States spent seven million dollars for. postage stamps; this year we shall spend 250 mill...
ANOTHER CAT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914
ANOTHER CAT STORY. To the anecdotes on cat sagacity ap pearing for the past few weeks in "T.P.'s" I 'should like (writes a; or respondent) to add my testimony in tihe following plain anti perfectly true incident, which came uiner miy notica when a boy. A large rat had taken up his quarters in a dark corner under our kitchen stairs.. -le soon became so bold as to come into the kitchen frequently, even though our cat might be there, which was cither too well fed, or too cowardly, or both, to at tack it. One morning it oname into the kit chen when both mly mother and the cat were there My mother uttered a shriek of terror, the rat beat a hasty retreat without being attacked by the cat, which my mother straiglhtway abused roundly, somewhat after this fashion: "Ah I yon lazy, useless, god for-nothing, cowardly thing;' not a vestige of breakfast shall you have to day!" ''This threat was adhered to, despite much mewing by the cat, which got nothing to eat in the house that day. Next mornin...
