HABIT OF EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 February 1914
HABIT OF EFFICIENCY. • (By "Win. 0. Red field, Secretary of Hwnmorco). 'First of all,- efficiency is not strerm-. ©us. The man who hustles luay, or may not, be efficient; probably ho is not. Hustling is not a normal element in effioiency, nor is strenuous work apt to be efficient because it is strenuous. You work at the lathe with the cast ing you are finishing ten feet away This 1 means strenuous, but not efficient labor. To work at tlie same la the with i I&lt;• Outings piled so near you can get thciii without moviVlg from your place. i> zees strenuous, Lul far more e'liciei.. labor. "Wo are familiar with the laci Stat an overloaded machine leads a Strenuous life. None of us will, if we understand mechanics, say that it is •Ji effioient life. This is true of men as well as of machines; true of us a: jnrell as our employes. AVe must- gin rid of the idea that strenuous and eili ciency aro oitheir similar or the same Driving is one thing; elliciency is some thing else. Eff...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THE SUNDAY BOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 February 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER !0' (From our own Correspondent). THE SUNDAY BOATS. R. L. Stevenson, ia one of hie charming books gives a graphic de scription of the Sunday marine pic nics, his heroes ran in San Francisco under the title of Hebdcmadary ex cursions, but better known topojmlar fame as the Dromedaries. Those Catifornian trips had, as their dis tinguishing features, abundance of noise supplied by blaring brass bands, and unlimited consumption both ashore and afloat of choice edibles and potables. The San Francisco trips seem to have'been run on a scale of magnificence not known to us, and yet wo have for years had in. our midst as a permanent feature down the bay picnics quite equal to any thing the novelist describes as ex isting in the Oaliforniau city. Not only at this season of the year hava we the trade picnics which are ex ceedingly numerous, but there are in addition the daily boat trips to Gee long, and the Heads, which are nothing but cheap picnics, of which the citizens ...

MR COOK CALLS TO ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 February 1914
MR COOK CALLS TO ARMS. " To stand idly by and have one's measures mutilated, the finances of one's country dislocated, for tbe mere pleasure of the retention ofofljce, is a courBe which does not appeal to this Government. We have to see the thing through, and the taxpayers must make up their minds to return one party or the other in sufficient strength to govern the country." This is the Liberal leader's call to arms. It should resound throughout tbe country. Other leading Liberals have talked about a double dissolu tion and an appeal to the people; but Mr Cook's silence was discreet and complete until he announced in the above sentences his party's decision to send the Parliament to the ceun try. There can now be no retracing of steps; the die is cast, and the Liberal Party is pledged to make the utmost endeavor to secure an im mediate ending of the Federal politi cal deadlock by an election. A double dissolution is Mr Cook's goal, and he sees? his way to reach it; but phould the d...

PUBLIC WEIGHBRIDGE WANTED. To the Editor "Nhill Free Press." [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 February 1914
PUBLIC WEIGHBRIDGE WANTED. To the Editor " Nhill Free Press." Sip.,—In many respects towns of far importance than Nhill are better equipped to expeditiously deal wit a (he hundreds of loads of wheat llr-it come into our town by their posF-'ssing public weighbridges. Why Nhill, which boasts of such up-to datf .('"js, is behind in this respect it is difficult to realiz". In many instances farmers with teams of restive horses are unnecessarily delayed while every bag of wheat is weighed on small scales, which appears to me an antiquated style. If ;■ public weighbridge was erected this fld.ty would terminate and the wheat .vould be stacked in half the time. Here is a chance for one of our ".•Hii'iist fathers'' at the council table to wax eloquent and vociferate the needs of a weighbridge in Nhill to hi? c»l'e*i;ue.s, and make a name for himsi If ,-ifter t lie mnnner of Cr Clark on the drainage question. FEDERATION. Tar ran Kin (lie, 20/2/14.

THE BIRD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 24 February 1914
THE BIRD MAN. Mr Hawker and bis biplano have given Melbourne a new sensation. It is true we have had flying men be fore, but, like Labor leaders who do not work their special cachet, seemed to be their inability to fly. In Syd ney they have been more fortunate, but in Melbourne until the advent of Mr Hawker, we had only two flying men. One Hammond certainly was able to fly since he negotiated several flights about the city and Geelong. He, however, required an enormous area of flat country for rising and landing purposes, and on the whole his feats did not stir the imagination of the public. The other bird man who essayed a flight from the Mel bourne Cricket ground, where he had an enormous attendance, was tho most unqualified failure as an aviator the world has known since Icars. His machine was unable to rise high er than the top of the cricket ground fence, over which the daring bird man hung and tumbled in the most undignified fashion, amid jeers and laughter, that pierced his G...

Nelly's blacksmith shop on the way home, and was then in the best of spirits—this was about 4 p.m. As far as it is possible to as certain all went well until he was almost, at the gate leading into the farm, when it is surmised that the horses, from some unaccountable rea son, took fright and bolted in a westerly direction on the east and west road which leads from the farm to the Kinimakatka school. At 5 p.m. Mr Gustave Theo Deckert, whose residence faces the road, ...
