IMPORTANCE OF PUNCTUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
IMPORTANCE OF PUNCTUATION. Punctuation.is the boundary mark :etween chaos and such simplicity that xe who runs may read. For instance, ;he following sequence of "words har neither sense nor reason in its un unctuated condition:-"That that ir s that that is not is not is not that .t it is." It wll be a keen reader whc -an at the first glance reduce this ap -arently senseless conglomeration ol aords into coherent significance. Ye_ 3alf a dozen marks with a pen convert it into the legible and comprehensive itatement, "That that is, is; that that is not, is not; is not that iftP It is." * Never' Satisfied.-When a girl "get. i young woman," she usually wants to ret a yoUng man as well. Many events ot puDne interest and value never reach the columns of the local newspaper. The Press is said to have many eyes and ears, but. it is not omnipresent, -and does niotgsee and hear every thing.

TRARALGON SOUTH ROAD. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
TRARALGON SOUTH ROAD, -o (To the Editor).), Sir,-Kindly allow me space to say a ~few words re the attempt to block our new road by a few per sons who are fortunate enough to own land near the township. Some time ago Mr. Sambell was instruc ted by the Main Roads Board to lay out the road leading from Tra ralgon, through Traralgon South, Jeeralang, and Jumbuk, so as to connect-at Brown's saddle, on the top of the main road leading from Morwell- to Yarram. Mr. Sambell evidently determined to keep up his reputation, and made a thorough search, and discovered' that the best possible route would be through private property, some of which it appears is owned by Mr. Widdis, who is cut up because his permission was not asked for to go through his property. Now, an engineer's duties do not re quire him o tgo cap in hand to every Tom, Dick and Harry, and say, "Please sir, may I go through your land.P' Where land is re quired for a main road that will benefit the public, the landowner's Anteres...

BRIDE'S ORANGE BLOSSOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
BRIDE'S ORANGE BLOSSOMS. For many centuries the recognised :hing for a bride has been a wreath of )range blossoms. But why orange blos moms? The question has been debated ,ver and over again, but a good suthority states that the practice has ieen derived from the Saracens, among rhom the particular blossom was re .arded as a symbol of a prosperous mar iage, a circumstance which is paftly to se accounted for by the fact that in the East the orange tree bears ripe fruit mnd blossoms at the same time. The lower was introduced into the wedding :ustoms of our country by French mil .iners, having been selected for Its ,eauty rather than for any symbolical eason.
HENCE AZURE SKIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
HENCE AZURE SKIES. Why is the sky blue ? It is a ques :ion that probably has not arisen ie Inmany minds. Most people are content o accept the fact without inquiry. SThe sky is blue-and not yellow, red. or green," said a science student, simply because the countless millionr .f particles in the atmosphere r.flect "nly the blue portion of the sun's light Some of these particles are water, but ,lost of them are composed of the Jxygen or nitrogen of the air. "'But,' someone may say, 'the sk3 •- sometimes red at sunrise or sunset. I'rue, and until quite recently the fact was a puzzling one. It is now knowr th't the-red tmts come from the water3 ,-:pour in the lower layers of the at. nosphere, while the deep blue of the .ky belongs to the higher layers. The ,ed hues, in fact, do not rise higher han five miles from the earth. ** But whatever the colour, it is en. :irely derived from the air. If it were possible for you to ascend above the itmosphere that surrounds the earth, jour blue sky ...

WHY NOT TELL ME ? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
WHY NOT TELL ME? Cyril was sitting at the table play ing with a salt-cellar, and in a care less moment dropped it, and spilt the contents. His father, rather provoked at the child's carelessness, said, "There, I knew you would do it." The little eyebrows went up, and quick as a flash came the astonishing answer: "How careless of you not to tell me."
FIJI. THE MISSION WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
FIJI. THE MISSION WVORK. The Rev. E. O. Lelean gave an interesting address on missionary work in Fiji, in the Methodlst) church, Traralgon, on Friday even ing, thle Rev. W. H. Scurr presid ing. In openingh is address, Mr. E. O. Lelean said he represented the greatest 'and most important work in the world, namely, the Foreign Miisslons, and he had been a mis sionery In Fijl for 12 years. Pro ceeding, he said that Fiji consis ted ot 240 islands or islets, about 2000 miles from Austrahlia. The population consisted of 1000 00 natives, and 50,000 Indians . The islands were pecullarly the care of Australia, and Australia should accept the responsibility as being the nearest white people. The Fijians, he said, were a primitive race, andh ad been called the chila race. Some people said the Chris tian missions in Fijl had not done ;any good, but that was not true. It was only a week's sail. from Australia to Fiji, and anyone tak ing a three weeks' holiday there could have a week among the Is...
A LITTLE MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
A LITTLE MISTAKE. We all of us make mistakes at times, but this was a very awkward one. The nentle Elsie sits dreamily in the gloam. ing in the front room. She is vera miserable, for on the previous night she had words with her own, and nou she fears her haughty Harolr will not call. She hears a step, a ring, a voice she knows, and someone is speaking tq the servant in the hall. She will not wait until a light is brought. but gently calls "Come in 1" The visitor enters. and, with a sigh of awful volume, th0, fair Elsie casts herself into his arms and softly murmurs, "Oh, my darling i'm so glad you've come. I have so wanted to make it up and settle." And he of the embrace remarks. "Well. miss, it's very nice of you, and I'm very glad. too, that you're going to settle up at last." It was the dressmaker'. collector.

AN OLD BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
AN OLD BABY. One of the most remarkable charac teristics of Sir Joshua Reynolds was thc rapidity with which he worked. Sir Thomas Lawrence, his rival, was ver. slow. Over his portrait of Lady Meiex borough and her child he took an un conscionable time. Promise-after vro mise was made, and at last Lord Mex borough insisted on fulfilment. "Well," said Lawrence, "if Lad) dexborough will kindly bring the baby once more, I will really finish."' "Well, Sir Thomas," mnswered his patron, "my wife will be happy to ive1 you another sitting whenever you hlke, tt the baby's in the Guardsl"

SPORT AND PASTIME. BOWLS. WARRAGUL v. TRARALGON [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
SPORT AND PASTIME. BOWLS. WARRAGUL v. TRARALGON Warragul and Traralgon teams played an association match on the local green on Saturday last. The visitors did not bring their best team, though it included some of their best bowlers. Their No. 3 rink was also the leader short, and Mr. Thompson, of the local club filled the gap. There was thus( a Thomsen at one end ot thec team, and a Thomson at the other end. This match is very probably the last inter-club match of the season, as bowling weather is al most over, and the GippslandP greens will soon be closed. The green keeper had the green in ex cellent order on Saturday; laster and keener than was expected al ter the rain of the previous day. It will be seen from the subjoined scores that Traralgon had a vic tory by 18 points. Mr. Duffy's rink very nearly had a two to one score and led from the start. At one stage of thi game Mr. p3ayley's rink had 14 to nil; having made 12 'in two ends. The opposing team gradually got the strength o...
