A HOLIDAY TRIP TO WARRNAM BOOL. NO. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

A HOLIDAY TRIP TO WARRNAM BOOL. NO. 2. (By T.F.L.) To visit Warrnambool without see Ing Tower Hill and Lake would be like a visitor coming to the capital of Gippsland without a trip on our love ly lakes; but to convey to others the grand view that lay s.tretched out be fore me as I stood on the edge of this enormous extinct crater is somewhat puzzling. Away to the left could be seen .quite distinctly the Southern Ocean. As we ascended a well-formed metal road, my companion said. ''This is Tower Hill,'" and getting out of the trap I said. "I thought it was a much higher hill than this; "' but get ting through a fence alongside of the road I was at once on the edge of one .f the grandest sights I ever witnes sed. Imagine standing on the edge of an immense saucer over 200 feet deep, with nearly precipitous sides, anld gazing over an area of nearly 1500 acres of land and water. In the centre are several small hills and cones of craters, which for numberless centuries poured forth their ...

DISTRICT NEWS. PROSPECT RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. . .... . "0 - .. . . .. PROSPECT RESERVE. The first schnapper that has ever been caught at Prospect was captur ed on Saturday morning last by Mr. Geo. Harvey, who was fishing in the breakers, and close to Mr. H. Ebert. Mr. Harvey was using the long line, baited with gummy, when he hooked something he thought was a shark. He landed the fish safely, and it weighed a little over 8 lbs. Flathead and mullet have been biting freely for several days past, and campaign ers have been fairly well supplied with fish. The spell of hot weather has brought a number of new campaigners, and it has kept away others who intended coming. There is ton much rfsk leaving their homes when so many fires are burning, and the beach will not see them until March or April. Many regard April and .May as the best months at the seaside, for the days are cool, and there is an absence of wind. The State-school at Pros pect will be open until the end of May.

"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

"BACK TO THE EAST!" JAPANESE VIEW OF WORLD POLITICS. (By T. G. Komal. of Tokyo, in "The Westminster Gazette.").-. It will, I feel sure. :interest, and may, perhaps, surprise, my European friends. to hear that the: enlightened section :of my Japanese compatriots .considerl the whites to be 'dricerni..by . a :great semi-' conscious instinct "Back to the East"' This, they think, is perhaps due to 'a faint recollection that the forefathers of the Europeans were originally Cen-. tral Asian emigrants, or. to an inborn, .'earning for the immense riches of-the ancient world. The Crusades were an early manifestation of this hidden In stinct. The accidental discovery, of America was also due to this cry of the heart, as is the steady Russian attrac tion towards the Far.Easti.. The world-famed Great Wall of China' completely checked the :'0n-rushing 'Mongolians from occupying the interior of the Celestial Empire, thus directing that huge and devastating hunman flood towards the West.

BOAT RUNNING STORY OF A LONDON SALT [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

BOAT RUNNINC STORY OF A LONDON SALT Most Londoners with a memory of Dockland. which includes some know ledge of the Old Mahogany B3ar and of I3lackwall Pier when emigrants embarked there on sailing ships for ,he Antipodes (quarters of beef sus pended on tackle abaft the mainmast) ewould know how to get to Poverty Corner. Of course, that is not its name. Being so close to Leadenhlall street it is more respectably christened. It is in close touch with the shipping of fices and the produce markets. There is a railway station near, and gath ered round are shops selling nautical instruments and charts, the offices of ship chandlers, and places where you may lit out apprentices for sea with everything from the marine soap to the gold-laced cap. Standing on the kerb there, or lean ing against the walls, are men who might be permanent features of the landscape. They stand thoughtfully smoking, gazing into vacancy for hours at a time.

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." She came from Germany twenty seven years ago, has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000. accumulated by steady saving. Partlculars as to wages are wanting, but it is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It is not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise in the matter of dress. But it is to be noted at once that there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put by a...

LAND OF MYSTERY AMONG WILD TRIBES. W\e have received further despatches by mail from MIr Alan Ostler (says "The Express" of December 9) supple mienting the dramatic message dated November 23 published yesterday, sent from Gibeli by runners across Somali land and cabled from Aden. Yesterday's remarkable story, in which .Mr O)stlor descrihed how he ex pe!lld a band of armed Abyssinian raid ers ,'who were roblbinig anld beating Bri tish tribesmen. proves that the Abys sinians, as well as the followers of the glad Mullah. are in the habit of raiding the friendly tribes in British territory who have been left without protection by the British Government. The following despatch, dated more than a fortnight earlier than the cabled message, shows that Mr Ostler has had difficulty in evading Abyssinian watchfulness. .A previous message de scribed. how .the Abyssinians, in- collu sion with the .British' authorities at tempted to -prevent hir?ifrom entering British 'territory owing to the desi...

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") M. France has been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing so solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or fiction in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them. or around them; for he has spent a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But lie never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art-save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, M3. France is a pure egotist. an...

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

TIlE STREET CLEANER A paper having said that "To recog nise the supremacy of the street cleaner would be to usher in the reign of chaos," "The Dally Herald" takes it to task and says:-"Now, that just brings us very close to the root of the matter. 'Supremacy' is Indeed the wrong word, an instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. 'We may thus re-state the proposition: 'To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity.'

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE "I have just received a letter from a friend at present travelling in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years," says the editor of "The Vine yard." "It was not written with any idea of publication, but so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one of the noblest peasantries in the world, point the evils which "The Vineyard" is out to fight, and the good which it exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, in good conscience, to print it without her permission." "It is like a dream to lind oneself again in this romantic land, and in one day we have already seen so much that It seems long since we left home! The crossing was horrid in every way, but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in the early morning, and Stavanger with its clean. many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.
