Another Blaze in Rouse Street. REFRESHMENT ROOMS TOTALLY DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

REFRESHMENT ROOMS TOT ALLY DESTROYED. Q By the clanging of the fireball and the continuous whistle of a railway engine, many of our residents were awakened from their slumber on Tuesday morning lust, a little after '2 o'clock, to find that that portion of the Arcade building in House-street, occupied by Misses Mather and Hob son, as a refreshment room, was on lire. Persons residing close to the town could easily define from their houses where the lire was, and it was not long before a large crowd had congregated. The llare was a big one while it lasted. The alarm, by means of the bell, was given by Mr. Ernest- Jensen, he being told about the fire by bis mother, who was awakened by the noise it was making and the llare it was throwing out. Other residents of House-street were also awakened by it. Fireman Hockley, who resides at the Eire Station, soon had the en gine out, and with the assistance of several residents pulled it to the creek behind the school. By this time several fireme...

Marvellous Somersault in the Air. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Marvellous Somersault in the Air. -i An ocourrence which seems incre dible, but which' is vouched lor by three prominent French officers. This is nothing more thnn a somersault in the air which befell Cftpt. Aubry, when flying a Heperdussin for the purpbse of effecting a reconnais sance avejr the region of Villerupt. "1 was returning after a 35-mi nute flight," the Captain assures us, "facing a wind of about twenty two miles per hour. Sly altitude was about 2,500 feet. At the mo ment of descent a series of violent gusts struck the machine, and on throttling down and switching oil, I was obliged to dive in order to make the controls effective. As I dipped the nose of the machine, a couplo of (puck successive gusts struck the top of the main planes and placed me in a vertical position. While endeavouring to manipulate the elevator, 1 found the machine had taken me in a perfectly vertical chute to less thnn 1,500 feet. It here adopted a horizontal attitude upside down and proceeded to ...

Caucus Split. MR. HOLMAN'S DESPERATE BATTLE. MINISTRY MAY RESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Ml*. HOLMAN'S DESPERATE BATTLE. MINISTRY MAY RESIGN. The caucus split is the sole topic of discussion in political circles in Syd liey. Politicians ave asking who will win the day—Holman or Meagher ! A prominent Labor member says it was Mr. Holman himself who invented the caucus system and pledges. Other members of the party be lieve Mi'. Holman made a mistake in the election of his ground of attack. They declare he would carry the cau cus on any other point, but that in this instance lie must fail. Mr. Holman now realises that the Opposition to him on the question of the Upper House appointments is stronger than lie at first believed. He knows that he is lighting a desperate battle. It is reported that the Premier will probably meet the caucus and demand a reeision of the obnoxious motion under threat that the resignation of the Ministry will otherwise be handed to the Governor. On the other hand Mr. Holman may ignore the caucus resolution until circumstances demand a fre.sli batch...

The Dreaded Sargasso Weed. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

The Dreaded Sargasso ' Weed. » Some 800 miles south-east- of the Bermudas and almost, in a line with the Gulf of Mexico lies that great tract of flouting weeds known to centuries of navigators as the Sar gasso Sea. Mnny storms have swept the wide Atlantic since Chris topher Columbus was involved for a fortnight in what Ovieda called "the seaweed ^meadows," but the gulf of years Is bridged by the re port just made to the Imperial Mer chnnt Service Guild by the captain of the Sunderland steamer Thistle tor. This vessel, bound from Norfolk, Virginia, to Rio de .Janeiro, fell in with the (iulf-weed on May 2nd and was not clear of it until May 10th. Day after day the ship passed through large patches of the weed spread all over the ocean as far as the eye could see. while the tem perature of the water rose 20 de grees. Between the patches the sur face of the sea was covered with millions of small jellyfish and "I'or Ituguese men-o'-war," and it seemed to lie a regular breeding-ground for...

Prosecuting the Dead. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

It is not often that official zeal pur sues a lad into his grave. I'lit a story that comes from I'arramatta, seems to indicate that happenings of this kind are by 110 means impossible. At the Police Court a charge was pre ferred against a y<mug trainee for failing to render personal service as required by the Act. It wys alleged, with perfect truth, as it afterwards appears, that the culprit had not at; tended the camp of continuous train ing of the i)th brigade. Neither -did lie answer to his name when it was called in court, The reason, it was subsequently stated, was that lie luid died, and had been buried at the Waterfall .Home for Consumptives, •where he had been taken for treat ment as a victim of the li white plague !" Indignation at the crass ignorance displayed by the prosecu tion is parallelled by astonishment that a boy sull'ering from consumption should have been passed, by the medical authorities as lit for servico. If there is any truth in what is so persist...

The Foley of Purchasing an Invferior Article. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Ill nothing'is the folly of purchas ing mi inferior article, more pronoun ced than in purchasing a poor cream separator. The first lose is had enough, hut there is the continued daily loss arising from its poor skim ming. Very often its separating capacity is not what it was the time the milk is being separated. Besides these reasons, there is frequently much difficulty in getting these separa tors repaired, or obtaining duplicate parts for them. Wo speak with full knowledge on this matter, as dairy men using these outside makes of machines sometimes come to us to help them in their diiliculties. A dairyman who desires the best re suits from his duirjr must of necessity use an " Alfa-Laval Separator, he cannot afford to use any ether, other wise there will be a considerable shrinkage in the profits of his dairy. Tho absolute and acknowledged supre macy of the "Alfa-Laval " is not ser iously challenged by any other make of cream separator. AYaugh & Josephsoi), General En gine...

HOW WIRELESS WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

HOW WIRELESS WORKS. (By, GARRETT P. SERVISS.) More truly than any other tele graphic device, the wonderful wire less is a speaking voice. It makes itself heard just as the human voice does, by a series of waves moving freely through space. From the beginning of time it has always been possible for man to speak across the sea, if he had known, how to employ the olectric waves that were at his disposal. But ho started at the wrong end. He began to use the electricity, for con veying intelligence by sending a cur rent of it along a wire. He pressed a button at one end of the line,and the; electric current passing along the wire • induced a corresponding mo tion in a tapper at the other end. It was a roundabout way of em ploying an agency which we now know can be employed more simply | and directly by throwing away the wires and making the electric waves "speak" straight through the ether. It is true that the language em ployed does not consist of the words of any spoken tongue, but it ...

A Kindly Deed. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Between Good Friday and Easter Monday 50 carpenters, bricklayers, and laborers erected 'a small villa for Sirs. Alfred Matthew, in Latrobe street, Brunswick (Vic.), not ono man of tlio whole number receiving a cent for wages. What they did was purely an act of charity for the widow of a fellow worker, who was crushed under a pile of lumber last February. The Andrew Kerr Timber Co., by which the man was employed, gave the widow £200, with which an allot ment was purchased, and on Good Friday the 50 men assembled for i work. They did not stop until Monday night, when they had com pleted every detail of a villa contain ing three rooms, bathromm, and wash house. All the widow supplied was bricks und timber, so that the ex pense of her house is less than £100.

Can't Shake off Grief. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 23 April 1914

Thomas Barton Fulcher, who shot himself in the Perth Fremantle train on Thursday, died in the Perth Hos pital on the following night. He was a tally clerk, aged 46 years, em ployed at Fremantle, and left a letter addressed to " the first unfortunate people who may find mo," headed as follows:—" On the border of the un known. To anybody it may concern, I invite drink of 5s to those who may have the misfortune to find me. This invitation to drink is not offered in any dippant manner. The 5s will be found in my picket. The reason for this act is grief at the death of my little daughter Mary, who died at West Subacie Hospital six months ago from diphtheria. I fought hard against this act, but I suppose that I have reached an age when it seems impossible to shako of grief. Before I step into the mysterious unknown I wish to state that an old-time pal of mine, whose initials are'C.B.,1 tried to do me a grave injury. I retaliated by trying to do him a grave injury.
