HE launching of this biographical 
new ground in the "Who's Who" type 
of publication. For the democratic 
range of its personnel I offer no 
apology. I have assembled together 
thus compactly "thumb-nail" records 
of the public and sporting associa- 
tions of nearly 1,100 personalities of this district of 
Greater Ballarat. 

Ballarat district citizens and "sports" are as pro- 
gressive as those of any other center. Men and women 
of both types have individually and collectively helped 
to build up this picturesque and progressive city and 
environs. And while thus proving qualities of good 
citizenship they have enhanced their own prestige in one 
or other of the realms of art, science, commerce or in 
manual industry, in healthy honest sport or in religious 
and philanthropic endeavor, in legislative halls and civic 
chambers or on more sanguinary fields of battle ; in the 
preservation of life and property ur in the healing of the 
sick and the relief of the indigent and infirm. 

I am pleased to be able to add my publication to the 
historical records of this community, believing it to be a 
useful compendium of information of public service, 
family history, etc., of most of the leading local men and 
women of the time and of the district, many of whom 

have gone further afield than their native heath in search 
of fame and fortune. Having regard to the likelihood of 
the future historians of Ballarat drawing upon this store 
of information I have endeavoured to be accurate in the 
compilation of the records. 

It should be clearly understood that the records are 
not auto-biographical. Indeed in many cases I have 
relied entirely on my own knowledge of men and matters 
during a journalistic career of nearly 20 years without 
calling upon the subject concerned for the requisite facts. 
Comment has been avoided as far as possible, the author 
preferring to allow facts to speak for themselves, and any 
semblance of comment is absolutely my own unless 
where otherwise specified and for which the subject 
concerned is in no way responsible. The book is not a 
series of life stories — simply a record of facts, and I anv 
grateful to my many fellow citizens for their consent to 
the use in the manner shown of their names and associa- 
tions. Subscription is payment for the book itself 
and not for an appearance therein. 

I trust that " Citizens and Sports " — the first of its 
kind launched in Ballarat — will breast the tide of popular 
approval and enjoy a just measure of public appreciation 
and support, and, finally, that all the subjects concerned 
will "live as long as they want and never want as long 
as they live." 



July 3l8t, 1916 

[To his contemporary comradest of the daily press of Ballarat 
who may desire to draw from its stores, the author cordially 
dedicates his work with an expression of hope that their efforts to 
reflect or enlarge upon the virtues of those herein immortalised may 
be facilitated by a reference to its pages ]

The Wiles Cooker 

Has revolutionised Methods of Feeding our 
Troops on the Battlefield 

THE WILES COOKER is now exclusively employed 
by the Commonwealth Government in supplying 
the material needs of our Soldiers in the Great War 
cutting out the Field Cookers of other Countries. 

NAPOLEON once declared that an Army "Travels on 
its Stomach" (or words to that effect). The Wiles 
Cooker is the Soldiers' Friend ! 

THE WILES COOKER is being adapted for use by 
Squatters, Farmers and Dairyman, Shearers and Har- 
vest Workers fed in quick time, Steam in a few 
moments. For all Dairy, Homestead and Power 
Purposes. Soldiers "swear by it" and so do all 
Farm Workers. 

WONDERFUL SAVING of time trouble and temper, 
and of fuel for those who install the Wiles Cooker 
on Farm or Station.
