THE CO-OPERATIVE MOVEMENT. BUTTER INDUSTRY. PROPOSED FACTORY AT BOOLARRA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
THE CO-OPERATIVE MOVEMENT. BUTTER. IDUSTRY. PROPOSED FACTORY AT BOOLARRA. Boolarra farmers are thinking of establishing a co-operative butter fac tory at Boolarra, or devising a scheme whereby they could join in, on a work able basis, with the Mirboo North company. The matter was discussed by a meeting of about 30 farmers on Monday. Mr St. Ellen (chairman of the Mlir boo Company) MIr Graham (the mana ger) and Mr Wilson (the manager of the Gippsland and Northern Co-6pera tive Selling Co.) were present, and explained matters to the meeting. Mr Wilson said it was unfortunate thalt there should be such a fine stretch of country from Boolarra to MIorwell without a co-operative factory. There had been one at Yinnar, but after years of struggling it had been sold to a private company. There was a broader aspect than this as co-opera tion did not begin and end with local failures. The co-operative concern could work just as economically as the proprietary could, and turn out just. as good a...

LIBERAL LEADERSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
LIBERAL LEADERSHIP. Mr. Cook has led his party through one of the storniest scs slons the Federal Parlla'ent has known. Hi; leadership to some extent had to be taken on trust when parliament met, and h:s task was rendered extreme'y k'iflicult by the state of parties. In the House of Representatives the Liberals were kept in power by the vote of the Speaker, and in the Senate they were overwhelmingly outnum bered. A leader, able to secu:e un swerving devoition to duty fro n u is supporters, under thesc.tryjng c r cumstances has. done well. At the end of the session the Prime 'Minister stands on better terms with his party in parliament, and with Liberal supporters in the con stituencies than when it began. He has displayed tact and sound judgmentinm his leadership. His Government has shown adinims trative ability in the departments.

Grave and Gay QUITE ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
Grave and Gay. QUITE ENOUGH. "You admit that you are an impos- tor?' asked the magistrate. &nbsp; "No, I don't, your worship." "You claimed to be blind, and yet you have an unimpaired eyesight." "That's true, your worship; but I'm morally blind, sir, and not being able to see the harm in my innocent decep tion—" "Six months!" ejaculated the magis- trate. Watson: "When I am telling a man a story I stop short if I see a peculiar gleam in his eye." Wilson: '"Does it mean that he has heard it before?" Watson: "No; it means that he isn't listening because he is thinking of the one he intends to tell me." "Why did you marry?" an old maid asked a woman, who was believed to be unhappy. "Among other reasons," was the pointed answer, "I may mention that I was asked."
AN ARDENT LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
AN ARDENT LOVER. Several young men were talking about love, and one said he had an nucle who went crazy on the tender passion. 'That's nothing," replied another. " My cousin Tom is more in love than any man I ever heard of." "Is he really in love?" "Is he ? He is so much in love tha he has become a postman, so that he can get her letter to read sooner." Said Phelim: '"The O'Tooles are a great family. Sure wan was raised to the throne of Ould Oireland." " And what's that to the O'Ryans?" said Pat, for the honour of his family. "Twas O'Ryan (Orion), they raised to the hivens, and made a constillation of him! And there he is to this day!" Tramp: "Please, ma'am, I don't want nothink, only to sit and hear Madame Patti sing." Mrs. W.: "Madame Patti! Why, she isn't here—that's my daughter. But don't go; dinner is nearly ready, and I will give you some." A polite stranger in a railway station to an old gentleman whom he had ac- cidentally kicked: "I beg pardon, sir!" " Eh?" said the deaf ol...
A YAWNING ABYSS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
A YAWNING ABYSS. A joke just now going the rounds of the press should be read every morn- ing by the man who is perpetually talk- ing about himself. "And there I stood, Aunt Susan," said Miss Porter's long-winded nephew, who had been droning on about his sum- mer in Switzerland for some hours since the old lady's eyes had begun to droop, "and there I stood, Aunt Susan, with the abyss yawning in front of me." " William," said Aunt Susan, speak- ing as one who has long kept silence, "was that abyss a-yawmnng before you got there, or did it begin afterward?" &nbsp; "Pray, Mr. Opie, may I ask you what you mix your colours with?" said a brisk dilettante student to the great painter. "With brains, sir," was the gruff re- ply, and the right one. Dr. Johhi Watson ("Ian Maclaren") &nbsp; was in a train a few weeks ago, and op- posite him sat a young lady and her father. Curiously enough, she was reading one of lan Maclaren's books. After a while she passed it to her father, p...
NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 January 1914
NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. Old Gentleman: "My stars! Why are you smoking on that keg?" &nbsp; Quarryman: "Arra! be aisy! This ain't dynamite; it's nuthin' but pow- der!" " Why do you keep repeating quo tations?" asked the irritable man "Why don't you say something origi- nal?" &nbsp; "My dear sir, there's no use of that. Every time I think of anything good enough to be original I find that some- body said it years ago." There is a navvy in Glasgow who is possessed of a great sense of humour. Perhaps it's because he's an Irishman. Pat has been disturbed several times in his single apartment off the Cowcad- dens by a well-meaning lady mission- ary. Seeing Pat was rather an exemplary sort of a husband, she suggested that he might be able to afford a room and kitchen soon. "An' phwat wad Oi want lavin' such a comfortable house as this for?" asked Pat. "Well," she replied, "you would have more room—more conveniences." "Convaniences is it?" said Pat, with a smile. "Sure, an' ...
