DEATH -OF Cr. W. H. McFAR LANE, J.P. :To live 61 years in a district, and to pass out holding the highest re "petf of the.' community, 'with6dit an: unikind' word from anyone, is surely 'ai honorable record. Such a one -is due to the late Mr. McFarlane, who died at his residence, "Barons court," Bacchus Marsh, on Satur day last, aged 84 years, after a very short illness. He had a wonderful constitution, and it was Mr. Mac Farlane's boast that he never had occasion to seek medical advice dur :ing his long life. Mr. William Henry McFarlane was born on 7th January, 1831, at Newtown Stewart, Tyrone, Ireland. His father was one of. a band of Syoung men who came over from Scotland to try their fortune in that beautiful spot in the North of Ire .land. When Mr..

TrE rlili of tti E uap By FRED. M. WHITE. Author of "The Ends of Justice," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward. Lock and Co., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) S CHAPTER VI. Abell Carries Out His Errand. SWhen Ralph Ravenspur reached the ,basement, his whole aspect had changed., For the next day or two he brooded about the house, mainly with his own thoughts for company. He was ubiquitous. His silent, cat like tread carried him noiselessly everywhere. He seemed to be lobk ing for something with those sight less eyes of his; those long fingers were crooked as if about the throat of the great mystery. He came into the library where Ru pert Ravenspur and Marion were talk ing earnestly. He dropped in upon them as if he had fallen from the clouds.. Marion started and laughed. "I declare you frighten me," swhe said. "You are like a shadow-the shadow of one's conscience." "There can be no shadow on yours," Ralph' replied. "You are too pure and good for that. Never, never will you...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 30 January 1915

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Trooper Charles Ed wards, of Bacchus Marsh : Mena Camp; Egypt, Dec. 21.1914. We have been here a week and two days, and are getting: settled down now. We untrucked the horses and led them to Mena, 10 .miles. We had to walk all the way out, and we were tired, just coming off the boat. We are camped at Mena in the sand; the desert on one side, and irrigation land the other. All the Nile flats remind me of the Marsh flats. Where we are camped the sand is deep, and heavy walk ing, but we are getting used to. it now. There is a grand hotel here, but it has been taken over as a. military hospital. English people come over here and put the winter in. Other winters they say the place is full of tourists, but there are none here now; I suppose there is no room for them, as Cairo 'and all round is full of soldiers. We are the only Light Horse at Mena, the others are camped out the other side of Cairo:' I was all through the hospital yesterday, . it is a .wonder f...

BETTER BE HEALTHY THAN STRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 30 January 1915

BETTER BE HEALTHY THAN STRONG. We are sometimes told that It is necessary to be proficient in boxing as a means of self-defence; but while systematic muscle-training has real ad vantages on the score of health, it is well to eemember that for the over whelming majority of civilised men the real battle of life is not fought with footpads, nor in the prize-ring, but with those invisible yet powerful foes we call germs, whose attacks must be met not.by enormously-de veloped muscles, but by the body's natural defences, in the form of rich, pure blood and a healthy condition of all the myriads of living cells which go to make up the body. So while it may be 'advisable in some cases to cul tivate brawn, it is necesary for all to cultivate health and vital resistance; and this is best done by bringing every habit into conformity with natural law. Mrs. Dobson: Bridget told me she saw Mr. and Mrs. Hobson going to church this morning. I wonder what's the matter? Mr. Dobson: Why, either Mr. Ho...

He distributed his greetings indiscriminately at first, but presently he singled out the man opposite .or special attention and barked at him constantly and vicious. ly. The woman said: "There, Sport," and "Now, dear," and "Please do be still;" but all her adjurations made no impression on Sport. He was out for blood or its equivalent, and was not to be appeased by tendeir phrases. Presently the woman ceaed' her argu ments. "It's no use to talk to him," she ex plained to the woman sitting beside her, "I .can't stop him. He always barks just that way at .any man who tries to ogle me. It is embarrassing, but I haven't the heart' to scold him too hard. He means all right.. Sport is little, but he is brainy, and you can't fool him. He is ...
