GORMANDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
GORMANDALE. (From our own Correspondent). The Rechabite social, wlhrc~ was held recently in the mechanics' tlll was a very pleasant function. A .ood. many visitors were present from Traralgon, and they contri buted in no small measure to the success of the evening's entertain ment . The Rev. Bro. Scurr, who occupied the chair, was quite at home in that position, and he kept matters swinging along merrily. In a brie speech he referred to the progress made in the temperance movement of recent years, and said this progress would continue. Life's best work and efforts did not need any stimu'us from alcohol, as theo people were beginning to find out. The Misses Reece (2), Tolliday, and the Messrs. Reece, all from Sale, supplied the bulk of the mu sical programme. The orchestral portions were very well given in deed, and proved to be popular with the audience. ~ro. Wilson, C.R. ot the Traralgon Tent, ex pressed his pleasure at being pre sent. He said that more of the Traralgon brethren wo...

GIPPSLAND' SHIRES. -o CONFERENCE AT TRARALU GON. CHAIRMAN OF ROADS BOARD AND PARLIAMENTARY RE PRESENTATIVES T OBE PRESENT. The annual conference of dele gates ot the Gippsland Shires' As sociation will be hleld in Trarai .gon to-morrow. There Is a long list of subejcts to be dealt with, and the chairman will need to keep the speakers in hand. Councillor Copeland, of Warra gul, Is president. He is practically the founder of the association, which was formed about two years ago, as the result of the Neglected Glpisland movement . It is felt that the Gippsland shires, have a good many important interests in common, and that combined ef forts are needed to enforce the claims of the province on the State Mimnistry. The association has al ready done good work. -The delegates will meet mn the mechanics' hall, and there will be at least 20 gentlemen present. The following shires will send delega tes: Alberton, Avon, Narracan, Omeo, Orbost, Poowong and Jee tho, Rosedale, Traralgon, Morwell, ...
GOOD BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
GOOD BREEDING. The best bred women do not fuse. They take their gowns and their furni ture and their jewels as a matter of :ourse. They are unconscious of their veils and their golves, and they expect sveryone else to be equally so. If they see an intimate wearing a handsome own. they refer to it admiringly, but ey also preface their comment with sn apology. Their differences with theii husbands are not aired, neither are the domestic upheavals. The repose of the well-bred woman is not the quiet of weakness. It is the calm of trained faculties, balanced so nicely-that an earthquake may cause a change of colour, but will not bring (orth a loud cry. Well-bred women are a boon to the Shuman race. They help the worll to maintain a high standard both of mor, alsa and behaviour.

THE POWER OF GRACEFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
sBE POWER OF GRACE~FULNES A woman may not be ,beautiful, but if she possesses a graceful carriage she has a power of attraction that mere regularity of feature might well envy. All grace consists in motion. The great secret of it is to unite in the same movement apparent contradic tions--quickness and softness, vivacity and mildness, gentleness and spirit Ease is the essence of gra.e. When Milton describes the grace ol an angel, it is "smooth, sliding with -out step," and Guido's angels, grace : ul as Tatlioni or Duvernay, seem to have been painted after Milton's de scription. . The seat of grace is in all parts of the body that have motion-the legs, hands, arms, head, lips, eyebrows, arid particularly the neck. As the head is almost continually in ' motion, the muscles of the neck, in order that the head may move with freedom and ease, should be extreme Ly .spple." This uppleness may be acquired by •practice. French women possess it in an extraordinary degree. A Frenchwoman, sittin...

The receipts a tlale oor w th?at ov.er 900 people paid for .admlssion. With - this large attendance, the stallholders and their numer ous assistants were kept busy, and the receipts were exceptionally large . All the raffles were got through with lle exception ot a couple, and these will be finished In a few days . The returns are not yet complete but it is known that the net nro fit will exceed £300. The commit tee is very well pleased wifth this result, and are very grateful for the help they hkve recieved from all quartcrs, and especaily from non-Catholic sympathisers. Among...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
MISCELLANEOUS. There is probably in all the world only one town built of glass, and that is to be found near Yellowstone Park, in the United States. The glass is not artificial but natural, being formed by ages of volcanic action. It is dark green or black in hue, but in every other respect resembles the artificial product. Easily cut into slabs and quite impervious to the weather, it makes excellent building material. The world is a beautiful book, but of little use to him who cannot read it. It is good to rub and polish our brain against that of others. A physician announces that distress mag or excessive palpitation of the heart can always be arrested by bending doun ble-the head down and hands hanging -so as to produce a temporary conges tion of the upper portion of the body. In nearly every instance of nervous or anzumio palpitation the heart imme diately resumes its normal function. Ii the movements of respiration are arrest. ed during this action the effect is still more rapi...

THE FARMER'S BEST FRIEND. That the horse is the farmer's best friend will scarcely be displited. Treat aim as such - see that his harness fits; Lhat~ he is watered and fed regularly, *nd when his day's wore is over. that he has as good an opportunity of rest in~i'n-.comfort as can well be given aim. It will all be retuirned with in ;erest to the considerate owner. .i· ? · : ·

A celebrated German preacher whc .poke English, but not nearly so well ts he thought he did, went over to America, and was invited by Henry Vard Beecher to occupy his pulpit at Plymouth Church. The German ,reacher rose to his feet, and gave ;ut the following amazing text-" And ae tore his shirt!" The large congregation was at once uzzled and shocked, whereupon Mir Beecher, with a smile on his face, arose Lnd explained-" My brother is refer. ring to tho well-known words, ' and the .toor is shutl'" A man mamed Brown courted a lady ansuccessfully for many years and irank her health every day.

SAD DEATH. ONLY ILL A FEW DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 28 April 1914
SSAD DEATH. .ONLY ILL A FEW DAYS. &nbsp; Mr. Robert Scott, of Callignee, passed away yesterday after a brief illness. Prior to Thursday last he had what was deemed but a slight cold. It is believed that he got developed on the day named, and the a further chill, for pneumomna de- disease made rapid progress. Not withstanding all that medicai skill and nursing could do, the sufferer passed away as stated, at Nurse Miller's private hospital. It seems incomprehensible that one so ro- bust and vigorous should be cut down so quickly. The deceased leaves a stricken wife and two small children; girls. He was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Scott, of Traralgon, The deepest sympathy is felt for the bereaved ones. The interment will take place in the Traralgon cemetery on &nbsp; Wednesday.

SPORT-AND PASTIME. ---4. --· GOLF. Members of the Traralgon. golf club took advyantage ot the Eight Hours Day ho:iday on Mon day last, and had a full day on the links. Theyput in eight hburs at play, instead of work, ricl doubtless felt grateful that a pa ternal government had given them a ho'iday, though perhaps not in tended for those who follow the somewhat aristocratic game of golf. In the morning an 18 hole game was.played, and in the afternoon another 18 hole game Mr. Rumley had the best score in the morning, Mr. H. Frost .Samuels in the afternodn, andi Messrs. Keys and Bruce tied in the grand total. The links are nowvin good or der. The fairway is .in betteror der thin it was in last year.

An Historical Sketch. TRARALGON CEMETERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
An Historical Sketch. TRARALGON CEMETERIES. The sleeping Ilaces of our de parted are more oi.le~s, according tb our individual sensibilities, re g'arded a?s sacred spots. "It was, m this sririt that Longfellow wrote: I like the ancient Saxon phiase which calls The burial grotiud "God's Acre!'"' It is just; • It consecrates each grave, within.its walls, And breathes a benison o'er the sleeping dust. - A 'poet's sentiment, these hnes. may, be termed, but they are, nevertheless, the natural expres slon or the tender side of our humanity. To this inherent feel-I ing mayhettributed the interest I which has been recently awakened by 'a'reference to the early place o.t sepulchre in the Traralgon rail way reserve. :The white palings of the child's' grave hiav for .a generation stood as an ancient; landmark, overshadowed by its graceful 'drooping weeping willow; but Ithe blighting hand of t/time has now dismantled its safeguard. and the decayed timbers, have fai len.

KING ISLAND. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 1 May 1914
KING ISLAND. (To the Editor).)1 Sir,-I hotice an account of a meeting convened for the purpose of interesting people in King Is land, and the wonderful things it will grow. Well, sir, I know a lellow who wps seeking land two years ago. He paid a' visit to, King Island, and catme back to Victoria, bought a .place, and is now doing well. He considered that King Island was then in the hands of speculators, and I sppose it is so to-day. If the people of Traralgon wish to see samples of fodder they can see it in this dis tnct, just as good as anything that King Island, or any other island, can grow. I would advise land owners to keep a sharp look out if they visit the island, as in such cases there are nearly always; plenty to preach of its wonders, ana very often for what they can get out of the deal. Yours, etc., COCKEY.
