GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
GENERAL NEWS. The comfortable premises of Woo melang Club have changed hands. Following on the refusal of renewal of the certificate by the Licensing Bench in December last, the guaran tors sought to relieve themselves of liability, and the only method left them was to dispose of the property. Mr W. J. O'Connor, of the Commer cial hotel made an offer, and the guarantors have accepted this, so Mr O'Connor is now the owner of the club and premises. The com mittee is still faced with a liability of £100. The "Sun" understands it is Mr O'Connor's determination to turn the old building into a hall. The Dundas Shire Council has de cided to discontinue the bonus on fox skins, as it was said the pay ments amounted to a constant drain on the revenue. The report of the Colac Dairying Co. for the half-year ended 31st December, 1913, states that £142,693 was paid out for milk and cream, as against £130,787 for the correspond ing period of 1912, or an increased payment of £11,906.

DUST STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
DUST STORM. Friday last was the hottest day experienced here this summer, and cyanide workers had a very trying day. Towards evening a storm broke over the township, and did a con siderable amount of damage. The wind was very strong, and trees were uprooted, fences blown down, and in a few cases sheds and verandahs were levelled, and a large solution tank from one of the cyanide plants was carried for a distance of between 200 and 300 yards, over a stable and a couple of fences, and finally lauded in the middle of the street. The tank was considerably knocked about.

DEATH OF MR C. PENROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
DEATH OF MR C. PENROSE. General regret was expressed on Saturday when it became known that Mfr Cornelius Penrose had died in the Maryborough Hospital at an early house that morning, from an attack of typhoid fever. He was an old and respected resident of Bowen vale. He was born in Cornwall, England, coming to Victoria 49 years ago, and has resided for the most of that time in Bowenvale, where he followed mining pursuits. He was 68 years of age, and leaves a grown-up family of three sons and two daughters. His wife died many years ago. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, the cortege leaving the residence of his sister (Mrs Walker), Maryborough. The remains were interred in the Bowen vale Cemetery in the presence of a large number of friends, the pall bearers being Messrs A. and E. Body, S. Coombe, W. Randall, T. James, and F. Wills. The service at the graveside was read by the Rev. A. P. Bladen, and the mortuary ar rangements were carried out by Messrs Du Bourg Bros.
DECENTRALISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
DEgCENT RALISATION. On January 17th Mr T. Mi. Smith, organiser for the Victorian De centralisation League, lectured at London House, Melbourne, on " De centralisation and City Interests." At the outset Mr Smith referred to the fact that a commission was sitting to consider how to bolster up our city industries; whereas there was really a greater need for in quiry into the shrinkage in the numbers of primary producers in the State. If this were undertaken, and the problem satisfactorily dealt with, there would be no need to worry about the condition of our secondary industries. They would be in no need of any help. The city could not be permanently prosperous unless the number and prosperity of primary producers steadily increased. Therefore de centralisation affected city interests as well as those of the country. The present condition in which 600,000 people, or nearly half the population of the State, were con centrated in one centre, was an abnormal one, and was growing worse. Ou...

New Desert Bean. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
New Desert Bean. Professor R. W. 01othier. of the University of Arizona, hais di.;r.:??ered a new variety of bean, wei2 adapted for cultivation in dry olimates. Dur ing a 1300 mile journey over the deserts and mountains of Arizona, he visited the Papago Indians, and got from them several hundred brownish-y~o!ow beans e an unknown variety. These he planted on experimental plots at the Arizona Experimental Farm for four years before the discov-ery was announ ced. It appears that the new boan, which had been named the "tepary'" bean, is more prolific under dry con ditions than any other known variet?y. It yields between 7001b and 800ib to the acre, with no more water than the soanty rainfall of Arizona gives. Under the same conditions, ordinary beans yield only from 661b to 1401b to the lBore.;
SOLVED THE DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
SOLVED TIHE DIFFICILTY. "No,' said the old shoemaker, sternly, "I willi not do it. Never have I sold anyithin by false representa tions, andi I wrill nft begin now.' For a moment he was silent, and the shopman who stood before him could see that the better nature of his employer was fighti:g strongly for the righth "No," said the old man again, "I will not do it. It is an inferior grade of shoe, and I will nIIever pass it of ,s nythihng better. So just mark it 'A seoo fit. for a Queen,' and put it in the windew. A queen. you know, does not have to do much walkling." 'All reforn is peeeded by agitation,. says the knno al. but imost men will tadl you ithat the women who agitate seldom reforu them. lIe: "I'in smoking a terrible lot of cigars lately.'

DOMESTIC TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 9 February 1914
DOMESTIO TRAGEDY,. "No power on earth shall make me dlo it," he declared firmly. She approached close to his side. Her lashing eyes blazed into his, and her iips sneered :- "You shall do it. However you dread it, it must be done. You hear "I refuse utterly. Such a thing is unworthy for a man of pride and honor to undertake," he repeated, drawing hack from her as a whiplash. Quickly shei was at his side, gripping his arm with fingers slim, but hard as -teel. She slipped a small knife into hia hand--a thin, sharp-pointed pieo of deel. 'There,"' she said. His ob stinacy was momentarily driving her to idesperation. Her voice broke with passion, and she cried in a loud, angry voice: "William Tomkins, if you don't do what I say, and go and peel those pota toes at once, you'll go to bed without myv dinner."

" Excus.: me, ma'am," said a seedy-lcoking, shifty ered individual in the corner to a buxom matron sitting opposite, "d'y' mind my looking at your ticket a moment?" The matron looked come what surprised, but placed her ticket in the outstretched hand. The seedy individual studied it for a moment, then, coolly tearing off a corner, handed it back as the train pulled up. He passed on with the crowd to the bar rier, but just as he got to the ticket collector he oried, "I've forgotten my stick," and dashed back to the car riage. Having recovered his stick, he Lpproaohed the tickett collector boldly and attempted to pass through. "Tid ket, please." "I gave it up just now. I've been back for my stick. "You didn't give me a ticket, sir." "Excuse me, I did. You look and see if you haven't got one, No. 0116, with a corner missing." ...

TALBOT MfINING. Mr Arthur R. Cane, of Melbourne, has applied for a lease of 295 acres between Martell's old claim and the old Sadowa, and is on the supposed course of the once-famous Sadowa lead. Mr Cane has also applied for a lease on the Mount Greenock lead, and comprises 425 acres of that well defined auriterous lead. Both these areas are considered very promising localities for the legitimate invest· ment of capital.

Little more than keeping the water under has been done for the past six or seven months--" Leader."

I estimate from 2 oz to 3 oz to the fathom. Water no trouble. Everything satisfactory." This news did not come to hand until after the morning meeting of the Stock Exchange. In the call room the market was quiet at 30s. In the public hall, just before clos ing time, there was an excited mar ket, with sales up to 85s. On Thursday shares had dropped to 28s 1ld.
