HOW A MOTHER SHOULD TREAT HER BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 14 August 1915
HOW A MOTHER SHOULD TREAT HER BOY. She should not forget that if she treats her boy as a gentleman she will do much towards making him a gen tleman. She should not treat her boy to perpetual frowns, scoldings, and fault-finding. "Sugar attracts more flies than vinegar." Love wins her boy to a noble manhood. She should never be so busy -or hard pressed for time that she cannot listen to him. If he lives to be a man he will all too soon leave her. She should make the most of him while she has him. She should encourage outdoor exercise or. sports, and she should not forget to train him with proper regard for his personal appearance. She should not allow him to form such habits as com ing to the table in his shirt-sleeves, ne glecting his nails or his teeth. or carry ing soiled handkerchiefs about with him. She should never nag him, or ever forget that he is a creature cf reason, not an animal that requires to be driven. She should not try to break her boy's will, but be thankful that l...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from "Charlie" Waterhouse Swho went from Bacchus Marsh with i the First Expeditionary Forces, and I was wounded by being shot in the jaw in the landing at the Dardanel les: No. 15 General Hospital, Alexan dria, May 6thl.-I am progressing splendidly; my jaw is knitting in an excellent manner. From to-day I may commence taking more solid food, such as boiled egg, custard. But, my word, don't I eye the bread and butter. How it makes my mouth water. Won't I thrust my jaws into it 'when I can once more partake of solid food. You see con stant milk diet makes a man thin and hungry. .It will probably be five or six weeks yet before I can think of go ing back to the front. Ah, well, I shall probably be just in time for the taking of Constantinople. Through getting wounded I have lost myr chances of promotion. My field glasses have "gone west." I h-cd just examined the front through them for signs of the enemy's ma chine guns, then placed them on the ground by my sid...

W?AT Gladstone called the "ignor ant impatience of taxation" is very rife in Victoria, and less so in all Australia. It is the basis of what is called Liberalism, otherwise Kyab ramism. A true Liberalism willhave to be evolved, or Australia will never advance. The crops are coming on splen didly, making great headway, and with ordinary rain we should have a very bountiful harvest. The Melton Gun Club will hold its usual shoot to-day, starting at 1.30 sharp. The Golden Fleece trophy will enter on its first com petition, 5 birds, to be won twice. Usual sweepstakes. Plentiful supply of first-class birds for the after noon's sport. _. The Rev. J. H. Allen, B.A., Th.L. the newly-appointed Vicar of Christ Church,.

BENEFITS UGLY GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 14 August 1915
BENEFITS UGLY GIRLS. Germany is ahead in novelties of a charitable nature. In the town of Haschmann prizes are offered yearly for the men who will marry the ugliest, most crippled girls, and the women over forty who have been jilted 7t least twice. The money was left by a big financier, and he, realising that beauty is an attraction hard to over come, made a provision in his will that out of the income of the fund n t less than £16 should go with the ugli est girl in any year. and -the cripple should receive £12. The poor women over forty who have been jilted by a lover receive, when the funds will per mit, £10 each, but the trustee can vary this amount, and, at his own discre tion, offer a larger prize to someone who will marry an unusually ugly girl or one to whom Nature has been spe cially unkind.
WOMAN'S WORLD. MAIDEN-HAIR FERNS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 14 August 1915
WOMAN'S WOULD. MAIDEN-HAIR FERNS. There is no fern more popular than maidenhair, and none so difficult to grow, over which amateurs have failed more disastrously. To" begin with, :t should be firmly potted in good loam or peat, and requires a warm, damp atmosphere during the time it is mak. img growth. It is impossible to raise ane, healthy fronds on clear cold water; frequent applications of liquid manure or soot-water must be used, or the plant will be simply starved. Much also depends on the attention ferns re ceive in the late winter and early spring. Before starting into fresh growth, they lose many of their old fronds; these must be preserved as long as possible, but removed before too much decayed in case of the young shoots coming in contact with them, which would cause them to damp off a?d ilirivel away. Plants that have oest most of their fronds must be spar ingly watered.

MAGNESITE DEVELOPMENT. The magnesite deposit, :recently discovered on Mr. W. H. McFar lane's property, near Werribee Gorge, has opened up satisfactorily, developing into a good lode, and maiaintaining its high quality. Mr. McFarlane is so well satisfied with the prospects, that he has sev ered his connection with the Ais tral Grain Co., and joined the Perme site Manufacturing Co., who are. working the deposit. A large quantity has already been sent to Melbourne, the manufactures has given very good results. It will be a great advantage to the dis trict to have a local representative.

The Company is an exceptionilly strong one financially, and as the dis trict has the reputation of being rich in minerals and raw materials (which is well known to Mr. McFarlane) there is every pr...
