LINES TO A LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

LINES TO A LADY. At Christmastide I hail with pride, All welcome gifts I honour, But one I deem o'er all supreme, When Daisy is the donor. May time ne'er trace your bonny face, _ Nor worldly woes offend you, But health and joy, without alloy, And all that's good attend you. You've soared to fame in virtue's name, With gifts and graces many, Arid maiden charms that friendship warms, And: smiles unmatched by any. May I still share your future care, And friendship now so- fervent, If not, excuse your halting muse And very humble servant. Wm. SHAW. Newmarket, December 26th, 1914. Warts on Cow's Teat-These may be removed with either strong nitric " or acetic acids, applied to the wart with a small brush or feather, every other day for two or .three applica tions, then wait until the dry por tion comes off and repeat as often as necessary,. Tire blow-outs almost 'never ought to occur: There are two big causes which are, first, under-inflation, re sulting in the breaking of the plies of fa...

MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

MYRNIONG. (RoM. OUR OWN* CORRESPONDENT.) The annual races were held on the Ingliston racecourse on New Year's Day. The weather was fine, but a bit cool, perhaps, for out door sports. All the surrounding country looked at its best, and the racing track was also in nice con dition, the recent general rains being responsible for both these import ant factors. One of the features of this annual gathering in the past was the number of happy picnic parties to be seen enjoying them selves to the full in the shade of the overhanging trees, and where old friends would meet and greet each other after an interval of per haps many months, or may be years, and the season's wishes extended and heartily reciprocated. Unfor tunately, these picnic parties, for some reason or other, are sadly growing less; and only a few were in evidence on Friday to remind one of what once was but is not. To be candid, there was a big falling off in the lady attendance; and of course the attendance as a whole suffer...

TRAVELLING SCHOOL OF DOMESTIC SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

TRAVELLING SCHOOL OF DO 'MESTIC SCIENCE. In view of the enthusiasm which was displayed at the classes of the Travelling School .of Domestic Sci ence, under the Council of the Col legg of Domestic Economy of Mel bourne, and which were such a pro nounced sucbess last January at Bac chus Marsh, it may be of interest to announce that a school, conducted on similar lines, is to be held this January at Werribee. When the official report of the Bacchus Marsh School was for warded to the Director of Educa tion, he expressed appreciation of the movement, and of the success which attended the pioneer school, which he himself visited and saw in operation. At Werribee, commencing on Tuesday next, 12th inst., it is pro posed to conduct morning classes in laundry and domestic economy for girls. When in the afternoon there ,is to be the class in cookery, laundry and -housewifery for women and girls, a class which met with such gratifying attendance at Bac chus Marsh.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

THi year: 1915 opens in gloom, and will continue so throughout, for the disastrous effects of a widespread war are incalculable, including theo logical beliefs. There will be a fusion of B.C. and A.D. imaginings that will be indelible. The camp of the Australian troops within the shadow of the Pyramids of Egypt, will turn the thoughts of mankind to that blend. Taking an Austral ian view, the financial; outlook is particularly unsatisfactory. In ad dition to the actual .seat of war there may be attacks upon the Australianicoast. Parliament, Press and People are incompetent to deal with such a calamity. The need for a "Still strong man in a blatant land" is greater than ever. No exemptions from the Saturday half-holiday should be allowed. It would be just as reasonable to have an optional Sunday. To-day Messrs. M'Phail Bros. will hold their usual monthly market here. Christ Church, 10th inst.,. 1st Sunday after Epiphany :- Melton, .11 and 7.30; Toolern, :11L (Memorial service); Rockba...

THE CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

. THE CONCERT S In the evening drew a crowded house; the programine caine up to expectations, which were high, and was equal if not better than many provided by a professional Mel bourne company, to whom double figure fees in guineas are paid. Mr. and Mrs. McLachlan and their com pany of Pierrots and Pierrettes (who went to a good deal of trouble) must have been highly elated at the cor dial reception they received through Sout, the evening. Most creditable re sults were, obtained. by the company during the - short time at their -dis posal after deciding to put on the, performance. The members, of the company all appeared in costumer-and the white circle's opening chorus was the fore Srunner of many good items. Encores were /numerous, and generously re sponded to. .Mr. :,W. Palmer's. voice is rather light for "The bandit's life," but better .to ,have it- well rendered in that than mutilated in thunder. "A little farm well tilled" was an amusing trio by Messrs. Horder, Palmer and McL...

BOXING DAY SPORTS, BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

S BOXING DAY SPORTS, BACCHUS MARSH. : These sports, which are- held in Said of Maddingley Park, are usually like a brand snatched from the lburn ing; this gathering proved an ex ception, for it had to be rescued from drowning, so to speak, owing to a phenomenal fall of rain on Christ mas day, when 137 points were reg istered in two thunder showers-76 at midday, ' and 61 at dusk; and probably heavier on the higher ground at Maddingley, which caused a large volume of water to,flow into the Park, and made it impossible to hold sports there. This caused a hasty retreat on sports morning to the showgrounds, which are on higher ground. All the requisites necessary to carry out a sports meet had to be transferred, which made extra work for the officials, who car ried out their tasks well in this emergency and throughout the day, under the Generalship of the Presi dent, Cr. W. Grant Morton, J.P. The uncertainty of the weather conditions affected the attendance, -but a satisfactory crowd put...

SHOCKING CRIME AT TOO LERN VALE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

SHOCKING CRIME AT TOO-. LERN VALE. The inhabitants of Toorern Vale were greatly shocked on Friday afternoon (New Year's- day) when it became known.. that a double tra gedy, had occurred near the villagei store. As Miss Mary Isabella Wynne, aged 18, daughter of Mr.. J. M'Donald Wynne, of Toolern Vale, was walking near the store with Miss Eulalie Worthy, a French Canadian named Peter Michel came up* to the girls, and pointing .a double-barrelled gun at them, fired a shot which killed Miss Wynne in stantly. The murderer; who had been on friendly terms with Miss Wynne, then turned the gun towards himself and committed suicide. The charge of shot struck Miss Wynne above the right eye and shattered the top portion of her head. The little finger of her right hand was blown off. Evidently she put up her hand to protect herself when Michel pointed the gun. According to Miss Worthy, the murderer met Miss Wynne and her self on the previous njght. He was then carrying his gun. He said to Miss W...

STORING VEGETABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 9 January 1915

STORING VEGETABLES. Onions and squash should be placed where there is sufficient heat and dryness to prevent any possible decay. A heated room in the house or a part of the attic where heat may be supplied will answer. The root 'crops-parsnips, carrots, beets, salsify and turnips-are best buried in soil. A good, sandy loam is ex cellent. Place a layer of soil in the bottom of a box, then a layer of the roots, a layer of soil, a layer of roots, and so on. If the, quantity of root crops is large enough, the roots may be stored in a pit outside of the house. A good way is to pile the vegetables in a conical form and place. straw over them. Soil should be appliud to cover this straw, and more soil or manure added as the weather be comes colder. Sometimes a hotbed pit. is useful for storage, particularly if adequate facilities for ventilation are given, and if protection from oversupply of water is afforded by covering the tops of the beds with boards and tarred paper. Protec tion should...
