Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

It's a pleasure, io handle a first-class article like Robur tea, even though the profit is so ridiculously small—you see there's hardly ever a complaint as to quality, quantity or price— and when there is, well 1 know there's no real foundation for it. Of course it worries a man to hear complaints about goods he's sold and I'd rather anytime ^ take less profit and know that my customers are satisfied than run the risk of losing a single one of 'em — and as I find my customers like the flavour of "ROBUR" and say that it makes more cups to the pound than any other tea—1 take good care to always have it in stock, and 1 never refuse anybody J who asks for it. 1 There's a race on just now | between the sales of the No. 2 and No. 1 Grade and it seems to me as many buy the one grade as the other—1 like the No. 1. Will you take a pound t« try it 7 The Grocer. A cynic is a man -who knows the irico of everything and tho value of lathing. Many a girL that's easily shocked usually isn't. To dig...

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

f ' BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. When you hoar a follow boasting Of the brave deeds ho has done. Don't disturb him, let him tell you Ail his smart things one hy one; But remind him when he's finished— Yes, his pardon humbly beg— That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people— There are lots of them, you know— Who to promise aye are ready, At performing very slow. In fair weather they're staunch com rades, But in foul they show the log; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. Babbling streams inaUo far more noise Than the stately rivers' flow. Though upon the latter, commerce Busily goes to and fro. So it is with human mortals, Workers on in silence peg; For the lien that cackles loudest Does not lay the bigsest egg. So of boasters [ would warn you, Don't beliove half what they say, For the man who's aye a-blowing His own trumpet's juat a jay. And experience will teach you Never of them favors beg; For the hen that cack...

Quite Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

Quite Enough. ""Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American writer of short stories, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. He hurried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer," was the reply. "I know just what would hap pen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occupation. And you would say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would set up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by and by, despairing of finding one Bweet. aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. And he would exchange an intelligent, libellous smile wth the twelve. And then lie' would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say. 'That is quite enough. Mr. Cobb. You may stand down.'" "Now, Charles, let us make up a list of...

A Fine Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

A Fine Speech. "I interviewed Andrew Carnegie in Brussels," said a newspaper corre spondent; "the great little man talk ed, of course, about peace. "He told me that peace must be preached gently, affectionately. You can never convert people by enraging them. You can't flglit for-peace. "He said a peace advocate of the fiery, virulent bitter school made a speech one night at a banquet in Pittsburg, and when he'd finished an old man shook him by the hand and said:— " 'That was a fine speech, sir.' >, " 'Thanks. Glad you like it.' " 'Yes,' said the old man, *1 liked it first rate, but, excuse me, sir, what are you for—peace or war?'"

HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. Two of the commonest causes of neuralgia are neglectpd decaying teem and eye-strain. 11. may be that no one partcular tooth is badly decayed, there may be no actual toothache that the sufferer can point to as the rea son for those shooting pains about the cheek or jaw, which he' endures almost nightly. Nevertheless, in about 50 per cent, of the cases the teeth are at the root of the trouble. Clearly the dentist in such cases is the right doctor, and as a rule a me dical man will send his patient to the dentist. Many people whose neural gia is due to eye-strain are not con: scious of anything the matter with their sight, it may be only when they seek medical advice that the sugges tion of eye trouble is made to them; they go to the oculist, glasses are pre scribed, and the neuralgia disappears. \ve, may be in a certain physical condition which renders us particular Ijv ready for neuralgia, the scale being turned by comparatively such small things as a draught ...

Handling of Wheat. BULK SYSTEM ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 20 May 1914

Handling of Wheat. BULK SYSTEM ADVOCATED. That the question of the bulk-hand ling of grain must be grappled with very soon if wheat growing is to expand as it should do in Australia is tho belief of Mr W. Walker, one of the partners of Messrs Lindley, Walker and Com pany, grain brokers, and export agents, of Sydney and Melbourne. Mr Walker has given the matter much consideration in recent years. He is recognised in New South Wales as one of the fore most advocates of bulk handling, and as a business man, deeply interested in the wheat trade, he, perhaps, known more about tho subject than any other man in Australia. "1 have collected information with regard to the bulk handling of wheat from the United States, Canada, the' Argentine, Sussia, and India, obtaining it at first hand from men in each of these countries who were thoroughly conversant with the methods of the inland transport of wheat," said Mr Walker, who passed through Melbourne on Monday. Four years ago, when oa _ a trip ...
