BRING YOUR INCOME UP. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
SBRING YOUR INCOME UP, "Don't keep your expenses down to your income. Bring your income up to your expenses. If you manago to live on what you make. you will never be spurred to better performances." This is the advice given by a San Franciscan who has made good. And why not? It seems heresy but it is not, when you come to think it over. Take the clerk on $1200 or $1800 a year. If he is one of those carefully restrained men, keeping not only his agpenses, but his wants well within his meagre income, he will remain a clerk all his life; die with that same income in his old age. The man who has wants beyond his income to gratify, if he has any merit in him, will hustle to bring in the dollars that he needs. Maybe he does not actually wish to live on a better scale than he is living, but wishes to arve for investm·ent or for a rainy day. He must lift his revenue or live a hand-to-mouth existence, or run into debt beyond his ability to pay. He becomes ambitious, and more in dustrious, m...
THE DOT AND DASH GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
THE DOT AND DASH GIRL, At a time when the cry of women in ri:n,. the sphere of men's lecutimate emplr:uymnt is loud in the lan , it is intcr.tng rto recall (says the Sydney "Daily Tel~cgraph"i) how much encour ,ngent they got in that campaign :rnm men themselves.

GROWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
GROWLS. (BY "THE GRUMBLER.") We are told that " all men are liars." If this be so, the man who wrote of our great annual sports gathering as "Maryborough's annual drunk" must be a liar of the first magnitude. Of the 15 or 16,000 people who were present in Prince's Park on New Year's Day I did not see a single drunk. As far as I have been able to ascertain, there were not any arrests made for either drunkenness or any other crime. I am of the opinion that it would be diflicult to match this record in any portion of the Empire-or maybe in the world. Good order and good fellowship reigned supreme. The takings show a slight falling off as compared with last year. But this can be accounted for wholly, or in part, by a great many people leav ing the grounds without passes on the two occasions when the firebell rang, and othere returning "on the nod," etating they had previously enid. Under the circum:tances, the gatekeepers could not ie too rigid. L'be takings at our sports-£756 are in st...
MEXICAN SITUATION. AMERICA AND BRITAIN. NEW BRITISH AMBASSADOR. WASHINGTON, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
MEXlICAN SITUATION. AMERICA AND BRITAIN. NEW BRITISH AMBASSADOR. WASHINGTON, MONDAY. Presiderit Woodrow WilVon, who is at present in Pass Christian (Mississippi), 52 miles from New Orleans, has refused- to comment on the action of the British authori ties in transferring Sir Lionel Carden, Envoy Extraodinary and Minister Plenipotentiary in Central America, to Mexico. The officials of the President's entourage declare that it is likely that: the change has been made with the view of bringing the British policy in Mexico more into line with that of the United States. [Sir Lionel Garden has had con siderable experience in Mexico. He :was attached to Sir S. St. John's special mission in 1883 and two years later was appointed Cons?l in Mexico City. Sir Lionel was: the British Commissioner on the Mexican Mixed Claims Commis sion (1885 9), and has twice acted as British charge d'affairs in Mexico.
CYCLING AND MOTORING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
CY CLING AND MIOTORING. (BY DU?LoP.) An inspection of the motor cycles that took part in the Sydney- el bourne and Adelaide-Melbourne re liability contests raises the question, What is reliability, and what is the object of these tests? Several of the machines ridden by contestants who scored full points bore evidence of broken frames, broken forks, whee?? with loome and brok-en 6;okes, broken mud-guard stayv, sp-ings, carriers, etc, If these contes~s are to determine physical ability and not reliability of the machines used, then the riders of disabled machines are entitled to full points; in fact, to more credit for their ability and ingenuity in reaching their destina tion in the face of considerable diffi culty. But if the object of the tests is to ascertain the weakness of con struction of the competing machines for use under Australasian condi tions, then the conditions and rules of these reliability contests defeat the object, and render the tests in effectual. That it is pos...

DISTRIOT NEEWS. (FROMI OUE COlRRSEPONDENT.) AVOCA. THE LATE MR. BATCHELOR. Mr Jas. Batchelor, who was found dead on Saturday last, suspended from a wire fence, was a familiar figure at Avcca for many years. He was born near Dublin, and came out to Australia in the palmy days. Mr Batchelor was at Lamplough diggings, and frequently recounted mazny stirring incidents connected with that field. After the gold rush at Avoca had abated somewhat he ac quired property near the river, and the famous Golden Stream mine is situated in one of the paddocks he formerly owned. For about 40 years Mr Batchelor had acted as pound Skeeper for the Avoca Shire, and he carried out his duties well.

He was possessed by means himself, having a substantial account in the local bank, where he also kept some valuable gold watches. The latter had been handed down from genera tion to generation, and are said to be...
PLAYING SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
PLAYING SAFE. "Doctor," said the caller, "I'm the victim of insomnia. Can you cure me?" "I can," replied the physician. "But before I take the case I want to ask you one queation. Are you in buineess for yourself, or do you work for oth ers?" "I'm employed as a clerk at a gro cery," answered the patient. "Then you'll have to pay in ad vance," said the doctor. "I'm not doubting your honesty but after I get throughl with you the chances are you will sleep so soundly you'll lose your sob. Then you oan't pay me.
FAVEROLLES FOR UTILITY PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 7 January 1914
S FAVEROLLES FOR UTILITY PU ,,POSES. The F;averolie fowl is a composite French breed, containing the blood, among others, of the Dorking and the Brahma. The former gives it in valuable table qualities, whilst the lat ter provides the character of hIardincs. As a matter of fact, the F?lvro-lo is nei of the most useful br~ieds in ex isience, .nod tha solo re. c's tbyi it 1s so little kept in this countrv i- thLt it is so little known and app'r~eat'-, In certainiu parts of Englrnd ni other bricd enjoys so good a ripufrin and it is significant that ',irds cf ' his stamnp, if properly fattened. in-ariabily realise e the top prices in the London markeots. A ierefordshire farmer who has kept Faverolles for some four years, considers them quite as good as WVyandottes for winter laying, whilst t?hir superior colour and quality for the table put them well ahead of that breed. A valuable feature of the Fa verollo is its quick growth. Being fine is bone in proportion to its size it grows as qui...
