Geelong and Its Environs. 1860—1914—P. A. MCANULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
Geelong and Its Environs. 1860-1914-P. A,. McANUzt~V. --O Residents of Geelong are as great patrons of picture shows as those in Port Fairy, and there are also many here who can boast that they never miss a picture show-except on Sunday night, when there is none./ During my sojourn of nearly six years in Port Fairy I never had the pleasure of seeing a picture show; but here I have seen several, and only that many of the pictorial illustrations are very suggestive to the immature mind, trivial and void of-instruction, they would be a cheap source of amusement to young and old. The prices are very moderate, from one shilling to three pence. The best picture theatres are said to be the Sun and the Joy Ark. I have seen both, but I prefer the West Geelong, which is an open-air one, varied with songs and music from the local brass band. Moreover, it is run by the local Council for the pecuniary benefit of the municipality, and the quality of its illus trations is quite unobjectionable, as...

Portland Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
Portland Pars. At a meeting of the hospital committee Mr Bourbaud, secretary of the friendly societies hospital, reported that the carnival had resulted in a profit of L220. He complained that the promoters had met with persistent opposition from the churches, presumably on the ground that raffling had been resorted to. Two clergymen present said they had on the Sunday preceding the carnival preached against raffling, but did not ask their people to withhold all support from the carnival on that score. A painful accident happened on the pier extension works on Friday, when the engine driver, Mr Thos Brown, had his foot badly crushed by a pile rolling on it. He was removed to the public hospital. A musical treat was afforded the public on Friday evening, when an organ recital was given by Miss Gertrude Allnut, the highly talented organist of St. Stephen's. The church was crowded. Schnapper are fairly nnmerous in the bay, and some fine fish have been caught. One pier angler, fishing w...

HOW THE PUBLIC PAYS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
HOW THE PUBLIC PAYS At Delhi the Government can give notice to a landowner that they are about to use his land. They are then empowered to buy that land if they need it at its value at the time of the notice. In this way the people of Delhi escape the sort of thing that happens to London when its suburbs are developed. Take one of the latest successes in London travel. The Golder's Green Tube has multiplied by eight the value of land round Gol der's Green (says "The Nation.") And if any public authority has any town planning or development scheme in view, it has to pay some such huge and unjust tax.
"UNWISE, BUT NO ROGUE" [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
"UNWISE, BUT NO ROGUE" An American, Ralph Emerson Burn ham, was indicted at Sussex Assizes for unlawfully obtaining credit. Burnham at one time had an income of £2000 or £3000.- Although warned that his bank ing account was overdrawn he drew cheques, the subject of the charge. Counsel said that Burnham had expec tations of being able to meet the cheques as two people owed him £SO2O. A detective said Burnham was not a man of criminal tendencies. He had lent considerable sums which had not been repaid. Mr Justice Bucknill said Burnham had been unwise, but was not a rogue. He was bound over to come up for judgment if called upon. la - .........4
OBSTACLES OVERCOME [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
OBSTACLES OVERCOME FROM PORTER TO PROFESSOR Humble rank and poverty, although formidable obstacles to anyone who wishes to attain prominence in the learned profession in Russia, have been triumphantly overcome by a poor mran, M. Prokaroff, who, after a fight against odds, has risen from the posi tion of college doorkeeper to an im portant appointment upon tJhe educa tional staff of a university, says the St. Petersburg correspondent of "The Daily Citizen." M. Prokaro-'f. the son of a cook, was a doorkeeper at the Lasareff Institute for the study of Oriental Philosophy. Here he began to interest himself in the study of Oriental culture. He bor rowed books from students and ac quired a knowledge of Oriental lan gauges. Soon he became efficient in matters connected with the science of Orient. For two years Prokaroff studied in tently. His application to Oriental reading was, of course, continually in terfered with by his duties as door keeper, but on those occasions when .he was statio...

DEVIL IN THE DUST FIENDS OF THE SAND. (By Alan Ostler, "Daily Express' Special Correspondent). A stone's tirow out on either hand From this well-ordered path we tread, And all the world is wild and strange; Churel and ghoul and DJinn. and sprite Shall. bear us company to-night, For we have reached the Oldest.

It is popu lated by the least pleasing of black races, and has also a population of witches, wizards, gnomes, goblins, and a large and varied assortment of de vils. Even if you refuse to believe in fairies, good or bad, you will believe, when you have travelled in Menelek's land, in the devils of Abyssinia. You can see and smell and hear some bf themn; and I have even shot one. He was a dust devil, and I shot him four days ago.

FRENCH LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
FRENCH .LOAN REPLY TO GERMAN CHALLENGE The French Cabinet, with faith in its strength, proposed a vote of confidence this evening on the. question of the £52,000,000 military loan to meet the German challenge, and the measure was passed by 291 votes to 270 (says the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Express" of December 2). Earlier in the day the Deputy M. Brousse had presented an amendment to increase the loan to £60,000,000 on the score of 1914 budget necessity.. Af ter, discussion of' the Treasury re quirements, M. Dumont, the 'Minister of.- Finance, . accepted the Brousse amendment. This raised-renewed opposition, how ever, and M. Barthou, the Premier, I.n tervening, declared that he would not engage himself to the proposal to 1n crease the loan, but, held that' the £52,000,000 figure was irreducible. "If the Chamber does not vote it," he said, "It will. be another Govern ment which will make the same :de mand." Finally the Brousse amendment was rejected by a large majority, and...

AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE RECONSTRUCTION OF..NAVAL. BOARD. The completion of the Australiar Fleet Unit and the enlarged responsi. bilities which have been assumed by the Commonwealth Government with regard to naval defence (writes ant Australian correspondent to '" The Westminster Gazette" on December 17). The personnel that was needed to deal with naval matters during the building up of the fleet and in the initial stages of the organisation of Admiral Henderson's scheme was of quite a different character from that which is -necessary now that Admiral. Patey has arrived in Australian waters and the serious business of training the officers and men of the Royal Aus tralian Navy has been commenced in real earnest. Among the changes which are. in contemplation is the reconstruction of the Naval Board. The Government hopes to obtain the services as first naval member of a British Admiral of high standing, who will be willing, for a limited period, at all events, to. su pervise the important w...
The Heart of a Girl (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
The Heart ofa Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," eto. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER VIII.-Continued. Queenie's manner of accepting Mi chael Thorne's offer of marriage was indeed unconventional. She had im molated herself on the family altar for the family's sake, or perhaps for the sake of one member of the fam ily-her mother. She might have re fused Thorne, anl left her father, Beryl, and her brother to fend for themselves; left Philip to pay the penalty of his theft. Quite franikly, she had grown to hate her father; she despised her brother. Beryl she loved; but Beryl with her training would have been in a position to earn her living independently of Thorne. But her mother's life depended on freedom from anxiety, constant atten tion, and comfortable surroundings. Thorne had supplied the wherewithal. Had Queenie been free to earn her living she would have had a commer cial value of about thirty to thirty five shillings a week. The ...

HOUSES AND LIVES PENALTIES PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 February 1914
HOUSES AND LIVES. PENALTIES PAID. (By L. G. Chiozza Money, in."The Daily News.") The death-rate of the United King lom is 14,000 a year cf the population. This rate expresses the averaging of ome wide variations-variations which express the difference between good lousing and bad housing. There are places where the death-rate ,s about 20 per 1000; there are other :laces where it falls below 10 per 1000. 't is easier to state these things than to bring home to the mind the full re ilisation of their meaning. Let me en deavor to convey their terrible import. To show what a death-rate may. be inder decent conditions, that of East bourne is about 10 to 1000. That also is -bout the death-rate of Hampstead. It is also the death-rate of New Zealand. What would it mean to the United -ingdom if the death-rate of the whole -ountry could be reduced to this figure, shown to be a possible figure by actual experience? It would mean a saving in the United Kingdom of 184,000 lives. That is to say, ...

KITCIENER'S (REAT WORK PEASANTS IN HIS PALACE A striking picture of the work that Lord Kitchener is doing for Egypt as British Agent-General and of the im pression his picturesque and vigorous personality has produced on the native mind was forthcoming yesterday (says "Th6 Daily Mail" of November 29) in conversation with G. N. Sarruf Bey, son of the proprietor of the well-known Cairo vernacular newspaper, ' Al-Mo kattam, who is now in London on the firm's business. Sarruf Bey said: The popularity enjoyed by Lord Kit chener in Egypt is wider and more comprehensive than that enjoyed by any of his predecessors. I think one may safely say that Lord Kitchener is the most popular figure in Egypt to day. He has made all the Egyptians, from the Khedive down to the hum blest fellah (peasant), realise that he is the friend of the Egyptians and under stands their needs. "EL LORD" AND THE VILLAGERS One has only to go across to the Agency in Cairo any morning to un derstand the hold Lord-Kitchen...
