NEVER TOO OLD TO MARRY Bridegroom of 95, Bride of 81 TWINS AT 67 [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
NEVER TOO OLD TO MARRY Bridegroom of 95, Bride of 81 TWINS AT 67 xncy are. 01 course, always a point of tinman interest. Why does a man of 94 take onto himself a bride of 63, and a third one at that? ' Mr. Samuel Yarrow, of Canada, the latest example, knows his own mind best. '"She is younger than I am. She vm be able to look after me when I gel aid.''' he says. There Is the clue to the whole affair. n a man at 94 does not believe he is yei old. why shouldn't he marry again? Australia has dozens of examples of ?sen marrying when marriage, one ?oold think, -would have been farthest from their thoughts. And not only do old men marry, but old men become fathers. These Old Brides It is an set out precisely by the Commonwealth Statistician, and for one year alone Australia had a bride at 81. another at 80, one at 79. two at 77. two at 76. three at 75. and three at As for bridegrooms, there was one at 85. one at 67. one at 84, three at 83, two at 82. two at 81, and four at 80.

BARBER HALF-WAT TO MELBOURNE Behind Schedule, But Will Make Faster Time Now Mount Gambler, February 23. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
BARBER HALF-WAY TO MELBOURNE Behind Schedule, But Will Make Faster Time Now Mount Gambler, February 23. Sid Barber, who is attempting to walk from Adelaide to Melbourne in 11 days, is a little more than half way in seven days. He has not maintained the schedule he had arranged, but hopes to make better time on the Victorian side of the border where the roads are better. Barber got here at 5.15 pm foot- sore, but otherwise fit. After a bath and a rest he left at 7 pm. for Dart- moor, Victoria, where he should arrive for breakfast to-morrow. He struck rough going over the Coorong and the latter part of the journey and has a blister on his foot. He had only four hours rest last night and expects to walk throughout to night. OF TEN STORTS, and costing £180,000 in all, a new bunding is to be erected on North-terrace for the Shell Company. (Story on page 10.)

MELBA [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
MELBA The death of ' Dame Nellie Melba, which we announce to-day, will inspire among her countrymen throughout Australia a sense of personal loss. She was not only for long years literally the Queen of Song to her contemporaries, but one of the very few supreme singers the world has known. Her superb art was recognised by such masters as Verdi, Gounod, Joachim, and Puccini; and, what some will consider much more important, it thrilled the souls of hundreds of thousands in all parts of the world, taking them "by storm," as was said of the Swedish Nightingale, "sweet Jenny Lind." In Tolstoi's "What is Art" he claims for perfect song a power over humanity greater than all else. It is beyond oratory, as feeling is beyond reason, certainly beyond the flights of controversial politics. It was as long ago as the late eighties that Melba first sang in public in London; and before that time she was a not unfamiliar figure on Australian concert platforms. In subsequent years, she won the high...
NO NEW ICE AGE YET! EARTH SAFE FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS MR. MADIGAN DISCUSSES PHENOMENON [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
NO NEW ICE AGE YET! EARTH SAFE FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS MR. MADIGAN DISCUSSES PHENOMENON According to Mr. C. T. Madigan, lecturer on geology at the Univer- sity of Adelaide, there is little fear of another ice age creeping upon the earth for millions of years. "All the evidence is that the ice is receding and that we are now living in the tail end of the last great ice age," said Mr. Maddigan yesterday. He was discussing a cable message from Chicago, which appeared in "The Advertiser" on Saturday, referring to an American expedition to the North Pole, which would use aeroplanes to "study the possibility of the approach of a new glacier age." He declared that at present the ice was definitely re treating in the polar regions, and it would be a long while before the pen dulum swung the other way, and the ice began to encroach on the temperate re gions again. It would in all probability go on retreating for millions of years. "Since Cambrian times, about 500 mil lion years ago," said Mr. ...
POINTS FROM LETTERS Hard Lot of the Workless [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
POINTS FROM LETTERS Hard Lot of the Workless From "Worker's Wife," Croydon:— I defy anyone to attribute my unhappy position and that of hundreds of others to waste and extravagance. For eleven years (since marrying) we have been thrifty, and never spent money on sel fish pleasure. We put every spare penny toward our home, and cared wen for our, children. But through unemployment for the past three years periodically, and pprma.npnt.iy for the last six months, we are faced with the prospect of losing everything in the very near future, also health, through constant worry. There are hundreds of others in worse positions. Our hus bands are only too eager to work, but have lost all heart looking for it. We don't want relief, but are forced to ac cept it or starve. Why should we, who have lived good, clean lives, be in con stant want and suffering, while others live in luxury, and help to crush" the worker? Ido think we should fight for the right to live. Cheaper Government From "Port Au...

Hutton (Dnley Park) and. a Prospect four directed by N. Wells. Tne green was in good order and mere was a large attendance to witness tne con test. P. Hutton won by 26 points to roe fiay Dnley Park secured the mat and qulcBiy gained control of the game. Playing superior to Prospect, they monopolised, the scoring during the first eight ends, and with tallies of 2. 2, 2. 1, 1, 3, 4 and 1, they were 16 to nil. Hutton's leader, Treweneck, led splendidly during this period, and with Williams (second) and Hardy (third) built up good positions for his skipper, who also bowled well. On the ninth end, however. Wells opened his account with a single. His men were now playing better, and aided by several aggres sive shots by Wells, Prospect collected suc cessive tallies of 2, 2, and 3, which reduced their deficit to 8. Hutton then obtained ...
VALUE OF ADELAIDE CUP HALVED £4,575 for Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 24 February 1931
VALUE OF ADELAIDE GUP HALVED £4,575 for Meeting The committee of the SJLJ.C. yes terday fixed the stake money for its autumn meeting on May 9, 13, and 16, allocating £1.000 for the Adelaide Cup, which is half the value of the prize-money given last year. It was inevitable that a cut shouli be made, as smaller attendances and decreased totalisator investments have compelled clubs to tread ?warily in the matter ot expentuiure. un mat ac-. count little fault can be found with value of the stake money, £4,575, which, it has been decided, will be dis tributed. Last year the amount was £7,500, but of that sum £1,000 went to the King's Cup, so that the drop is proportion ately not so great. The Goodwood Handicap will carry £300, as against £1,000, and the other handicap events will also iiave smaller prizes.
