The Bonus for Fox Skins [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

The Bonus for Fox Skins At the Kowree shire council meeting, Cr Hoare moved that a return be placed on the table of the amount spent for fox destruction. He had been under the impression that the council were returned half the bonus, but learned that the government only returned them half their loss, and he though they were paying too much, though he could not see any way out of it. Cr McPherson agreed, but did not think it was legal to wipe out the bonus. Cr Philip said that, though they were paying a lot, he did not think the bonus should be done away with. They were losing, but if they did not encourage the extermination they would soon be overrun with vermin. Cr Hoare agreed with the president, but he would like to know just what the destruction wat costing them. The motion was carried.

MACARTHUR. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

IACARTHUR. (From Our Correspondent) A public meeting was held on Tuesday to see what could be done, financially and otherwise, towards securing -a nurse under the organisation of the " Bush Nursing Association." The want of a trained nurse :in our midst has been much felt, patients having at times to travel by conveyances either to Hamilton or Port Fairy in order to receive proper nursing. The death has occurred at King Iake' of Mrs Corstorphine, at the advanced age of 96 years, who was a colonist for up wards of 66 yeals. She-and her husband (who predeceased her by 10 years) lived for a number of -years at' Balmoral.- The deceased lady left no family, her nearest relatives being cousins at Macarthur, Geelong, and Warracknabeal. Friday was the hottest day experienced here for many years, but a cool change took place at 4 o'clock in the evening. Mr J. Stimson, assistant at the State school, has secured a scholarship, which gives him two years free at the Training College in Melbourne...

The Portland Show. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

The Portland Show. The annual show of the Portland Agricultural Society was held yesterday, when there was a record attendance, between 3000 and 4000 people being present. The display of cattle was excellent, but those in the sheep sections were..very poor. The prize for fat sheep was secured by Mr Joseph Tilley, of Aringa. The pig sections were also very poor.. There was an excellent dis play of vegetables, both in number and quality, and the judge, Mr G. Seymour (potato expert of the De partment of Agriculture), said the exhibition was the finest he had ever seen in Victoria. The ring events created a deal of interest, and were very good. The accommodation at Portland was taxed to the utmost, every place being full; while the railway carriages and the Casino were con verted into sleeping berths for those who were unable'to find accommo dation elsewhere. The Casino ran a moonlight ex cursion on the bay in the evening, and- carried a large coiiiplement- of passengers. Altogether,'vi...

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

BOOM IN ZOOS ANIMALS LIKE THEIR CAGES. "No tirds and no mammals, from whatsoever part of the word or c!li mate they may have come, ever ap proach the duration of life which they may be expected to attain, if they ar' kept in the interior of a warmed house," said Dr Chalmers Mitchell secretary to the Zoological Society o' London, referring to the new open-air installations at the Zoo in a raper read before the Royal Society of Arts last night (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). SThe customary heating arrange ments are expensive but certain modes of killing them. Fresh air is the fun damental necessity. "There is what may be called a boom in zoological gardens." he said. "I am sometimes charged with being too sedulous of the popular side of mena geries and careless of their scientific side. In this matter there is a real coincidence between what the public want and what is best for the advance ment of scientific knowledge. "There are very few living animals that are known to sc...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Gazette," Sir-Mr'J. E. Fenton, M.H.R., on the opening of the Footscray Drill Hall said we want an armed Aus tralia to preserves us against the coloured Britisher, who number 350,000,000, therefore let us train for 115 days the healthy. boys of. our 4, 700,000 of population that are 2000 .miles away from the place where they are likely to be wan ted. Mr E. C. Wade congratula t-ed himself and everyone that our citizen soldier would have power to say how far the military system was to be allowed to interfere with the every-day work of the country .Yet the majority of our soldiers are voteless, and all are command ed not to ventilate grievances in the press. Judge Bevan is urging for industrial development of the Northern Territory, a place so large and empty that he would not be surprised to hear of settlements of Chinese having permanently es tablished themselves there, and that without our knowledge. He 'has no fear of an armed invasion : but po...

WEATHER PROPHETS THE POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

WEATHER PROPHETSl THE POINT OF VIEW. (By Barry Pain, in the "Daily Mail.")i In the little smoking-room at the back of the" bar the conversation was mainly between Mr Hagley, a stolid looking man in gaiters, who had made an unproved assertion and stuck to it, and Mr Peterson, a fluent little man with spectacles, London-born, who ob jected to unproved assertions. There were others present. There was the landlord, a wise man who said little. And in the leather-covered .armchair by the fire was the obese figure of Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson had sold a horse extremely well that day-almost too well in the opinion of purists-and was now very tired. Even in sleep his podgy fingers never relaxed their grip of his half-smoked cigar, and occasionally he woke up for a moment and contributed something to the conversation which had no direct bearing upon it. "We'll all friends here,"' said Mr Peterson glibly, "and I am sure I have no wish to lose my temper or to make use of any expression which I.mig...

DEADLY FLANNELETTE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

DEADLY FLANNELETTE Inflammable clothing as a cause of deaths by fire is exposed in a striking manner by- statistics compiled by "-re."r " The writer says: "When the fireguards clause was in corporated in the Children Act it was piously hoped that -the number of chil dren annually burned to death would be reduced by half. So far as our records go. the number of infantile mortalities has increased, for the Act is practic ally a dead letter; few penalties are im posed in the comparatively few in stances where proceedings have been taken. The Government did not strike at the principal cause of infantile burn. ing fatalities-inflammable clothing." "Very few men are burnt to death owing to their clothing igniting," adds the writer, "but it is different with women, quite 95 per cent. of the fatal ities to women reported being due to the inflammability of their wearing apparel." The total of fire fatalities this year to November 19, as compiled by the writer, is 64 men, 204 women, and 592 c...

PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914

PRINCE AND ACTRESS SEQUEL TO MARRIAGE The marriage of a prince with a music-hall performer was yesterday the basis of a remarkable action in the Paris courts (says the Paris cor respondent of "The Daily Mail," De cember 5). Prince Auguste of Broglie-Revel married last year Mlle. Jane Thylda, a music-hall artist. His brother, Prince Henri of Broglie-Revel, and his uncle, Count Robert of Clermont-Ton nerre, the "well-known sportsman, were, it appears, annoyed by the mar riage and the family broke off all re lations with Prince Auguste and his bride. The uncle and brother de manded that the remains of Countess Sosthene of Clermont-Tonnerre and of Princess Henri of Broglie-Revel should be removed from the private chapel of the Castle of Loroy, where Prince Auguste and his wife live, and re-interred in the family vault in the cemetery of Pere la Chaise in Paris. A few days before his marriage Prince Auguste wrote to his uncle an nouncing that he proposed, in order "to regularise his posi...

NEWS FOR DEAD MAN LETTER TOO LATFA A clerk, Thomas Barnes Hope, who had been seeking work in vain for five or six weeks, committed suicide at his lodgings in College street, Wands worth.
