MISSING RAMS [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 9 January 1914

MiSS1N RAiMS "The best- laid schemes of mice and men gang aft aglee i" So wrote the famous Bobby Burns, and his words are as true to-day as they were when they were born in the brain of the great poet. It appears that during the holidays Mr A. Stewart of Habbies Howe, had six superior rams consigned to him from the city. On the day the rams were expected to arrive in Seymnour he sent in a man to bring them out to the homestead. When the drover reached Seymour he found, to his surprise, that the sheep had not arrived, and he could hear no tid ings of them, so he had to return as he came-empty-handed, A few days later word was con' yed to ..r Stewart that rams ans ering to the description of those.mssing had been placed for safe Wkepiag in Messrs Heywood, Rose n Co.'s yards. On making further inquiry 1r Stewart was pleased to find that these were his lost rams, but how they made their escape from the railway truck, in which they were securely. tastened, is a miystery. eeing, however, ...

MAN WITH-PRICE ON HEAD. WAR AGAINST WHISKY SELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

MAN WITH-PRICE ON HEAD. WAR AGAINST WHISKY SELLERS. One of the most interesting visitors that London has had for some time ar rived there recently on his way from Milan to Amerion This is Mr W. E. Johnson, who, charged by. the United States Congress with the task of sup pressing illegal drink-sollng to the Red Indians, has completed five excit ing years as Chief Officer. He told' an interviewer something about his life as an Indian Service Agent. "What led to my appointment by the Roosevelt Administration in 1906" said Mr Johnson, "was that things had reached an acute stage in the in dian territory. Many people who had oommitted crimes .in the east took re fuge in the Indian reservation, and be gan selling liquor to the natives, part ly in order to make profit, and partly in order to get the Indian drunk and rob him. This led in turn to repris als by the Indians. "1 got together 25 to 30 frontier men, and we went out making arrests and burning drinking saloons. In 18 months, six of ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") - Much is being made of the discov ery by the Country Roads- Board that veritable Land of Promise exists in the lteytesbury and Otway Forest districts. That is, however, an old story for anyone who has even a casual knowledge of the undeveloped resour oes of Victoria-undeveloped for the most part because of the lack of facili ties which it .is the province of the Country Roads Board to provide. And it is not for want of effort on the part of the people who have been for more Itan a generatio4 struggling to bring these rich productive areas into their o.vn, that the need for railways and roads have not been reoognised by the authorities. Efforts, little short of desperate have been put forth by (the settlers to have the justice of their glaimis for assistance recognised. But the evil of centralisation-the "pull" of the people in the --big centres-has rendered these efforts null. The Board, during- a recent .pilgrimage through lHeyttabury and Otway F...

FIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

JFIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. 'Although willing to meet death by a sword thrust, the hero of 100 duels has shown that he objects very strongly to having wet feet. He is M. Rouzier Dorcieres, a man who has at his fingar ends all the rules and formalities of the duel. One of his chief pleasures is to be master of ceremonies, at such meet ings. His courage is undoubted, but wet feet or dirty boots he cannot stand. He had had some small difference about a medical question, and it was decided to settle the quarrel by an appeal- to the sword. A meeting was arranged, and at eleven o'olock punctually the ene mies faced one another "on guard." ltapier points threatened-that matter ed nothing; but the sky was grey and promised rain-and that was serious,. They set to fiercely, so fiercely that the swords were bent, and new ones had to be substituted. The sun shone dully, and at last the rain came, after 45 minutes of fierce combat. Duellists and seconds were struck with panic, and there was a wild r...

VARIOUS USES OF OIL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

VARIOUS USES OF OIL. Every person requires a certain am ount of oil in his lood in order to be healthy. Our ancestors lived to a large extent on olives, peanuts, chest nuts, and other nuts oontaining oil. The present generation uses too little oil in its diet. This can be taken in the shape of the pure expressed olive oil, is an emulsified salad dressing, or by eating nuts, olives, etc. It may be a matter of choice how the system gets its oil, but a certain amount ,s essential to the enjoyment of good health.. The good results of the habi tual use of the above articles in the diet are soon shown, espeoially where persons are inclined to indigestion and constipation. Everyone ought to use pure olive oil in moderate doses, also as a dressing for salads. Various kinds of nuts have a high dietetio value, because of the oil which they contain, and oan be used to advantage. When patients incline to consumption, pure cod liver oil ranks at the head of oily substances, but the lesser oils c...

THE CALL OF WIRELESS. A NEW STYLE OF ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

THE CALL OF WIRELESS. A NlW STYLE OF ADVENTURES. The call -of the wireless has been answered by thousands of young Ameri cans. They have become pounders of the brass in merchantman and warship, and are now riding the high seas, talk ing half round the arth. And, as in the old days of the sailing ship, when audacity was a boast and skill a pride -matters to be related and rounded out wherever men of the seven seas mel in fellowship and quiet-a veri table host of new stories lave entered the world with these pounders of the brass. The world hears a few of these stories remarkable for the heroismi of the operator and the appalling loss, as in the case of Eceles of the Uhio, or Binns of the Republic, or Phillips of the Titanic. But there are other stories remarkable in that there was little or no loss of life, remarkable in that the quick wit and mechanical ingeiuity of the. operator met an unexpected crisis. Two young fellows were sent out in if rowboat frone 'a land station to in stal...

A UNIQUE ENGINEERING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

A UNIQUE ENGINEERING FEAT. A most interesting engineering feat is at present being attempted in Switz erland at Fully-en Valais, where a hy draulic-electric installation is to be driven by the pressure of. water from Lake Fully, situated over 1800 feet above the Rhone plain, where the power station will be situated. The peculiar feature of the enterprise is the great height of the supply. The attempt has never before been made to utilise the fall of 1800 feet, and in technical cir: cles it has been hitherto regarded as impossible. But a Lausanne engineer, M. 'Boucher, has undertaken the work. with -every confidence of success. The pressure is-so great that it is impossible to allow a direct flow, according to La Technique Moderne, which gives par ticulars of the enterprise. The water will flow to the valley by way of a con duit nearly three miles in length. The pipes ,will be from two feet to two feet six inches in diameter, and the thickness of the walls will be from. a quarter of ...

NEW MOTOR HEADLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 16 January 1914

NEW MOTOR HEADLIGHT. A new 'headlight for motor-cars has just been.put on the market in France,. which iepresents a radical departure from present designs. The lamp has the shape of. a human eyeball and turns in its socket in exactly the same man ner as the eye in' its support. . Two small olamps, controlled by thumb screws, from the interior of the car, hold the lamp. in position in ally desir ed di eetion 'while the hlandle itself is used in turning, the light rays to the spot they are needed.
