A Langwarrin Budget A Fallen Soldier's Memory Honored [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 7 January 1921

A Langwarrin Budget A Fallen Soldier's Memory Honored. On Friday evening, December 17th, at the Red Cross Hall, Langwarrin Mil tary Camp in the presence of a large number of residents of this district, Major Conder, in a most impressive speech, handed to Mr. D. P. Cain a Gallipoli, Star on behalf of the Minister for Defence, as a remembrance of his son, Walter, who enlisted from this district and, after a lengthy period at the fight ing fronts, made the supreme sacrifice at Fleurbeaux, France. Walter Cain, or Wally, as he was more familiarly known, was a great favorite in this dis trict, being a leader in all social gather ings and at sports. As a good singer, he was also in much request at concerts. While we congratulate Mr. Cain on re ceiving such distinguished honour in   remembrance of his late son's great sac rifice, we deeply sympathise with him on the loss of such a son, but though he has gone, yet will his memory remain with us always.

HELPING PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 7 January 1921

HELPING PEOPLE. " Twenty years ago a discouraged young doctor in one of our large cities was visited by his old father, who came up trom a rural district to look after his boy. "Well son." he said, "how are you getting along?" I'm not getting along at all," was the disheartening answer. "I'm not doing a thing." The old man's countenance fell, but he spoke of courage and patience and perseverance. Later in the day he went with his son to the "Free Dispen sary," where the young doctor had an unsalaried position, and where he spent an hour or more every day. The father sat by, a silent, but in tensely interested spectator, while twenty-five poor unfortunates received help. The doctor forgot his visitor. while he bent his skilled energies to this task; but hardly had the door closed on the last patient when the old man burst forth: "I thought you told me you were not doing anything! Why if I had helped twenty-five people in a month as much as you have in one morning, I would thank God t...

Cockatoos. HOW THEY ARE CAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 7 January 1921

Cockatoos. HOW THEY ARE CAUGHT. Birds require more patience than rabbits, to catch for profit. But the hauls are more paying and not so fre quent, and the hookey-beaks require work. I know very few occupations that don't demand labor. Birding is cleaner and less fatiguing than rabitting. The essentials are a set of nets, means and transport to market and   ability to live sometime a month with out a pull. Having watched down a flight of cockatoos, we fix our note and chain down our decoy bird within their fall, then we feed the wild ones all within the space that will be covered by the pull. The mechanical device, by which one pull of a cord brings two long broad nets to slightly overlap, can be imagined. Without diagrams it is not so easy to describe it. The draw line is brought to a cache of cream boughs under which the operator watches until he gets a full chance. It need not be so far of as one would think. After two days' feeding a trial might be made on the third ...
