The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 6 October 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late -is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riendB let no rnde sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamiest sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, - And that the world may know its loss, Pl&ce on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, ' 'Here lies . A chump who wouldn't advertise."'

This Week's Show. Grand Exhibition Promised. NEARLY 2000 ENTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 6 October 1914
This Week's Show. Grand Exhibition Promised. NEARLY 2000 ENTRIES. The Annual Show is with us once more. The 37th annal fixture under the auspices of the Benalla Agricultural Society will be opened in the Society's showgrounds to-day and continued on Wednesday. For an exhibition of agriculture and pastoral products the present season could hardly be more unfavorable. The drought which has stricken the country has been a serious blow to the producers and the business community, itt fact it affects in one way or another the whole of the people. Considering that in some parts of the State it has been fouud necessary to cancel the shows for this year, we must regard our posi tion among many estnost fortunate. The show goes on as usual, and while the number of exhibits may not equal that of last year's great record, they, nevertheless, make a very striking total, and afford most convincing evidence as to the re sources and industries of I he dis trict.

Wirths' Circus. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 6 October 1914
Wirths' Circus. The announcement that Wirths' Circus is coming to Benalla on Wednesday. October 7. (to-morrow) will be received with general plea sure, which will be enhanced when it is learned that it comes with a new programme, which includes some of the best performers procur able. They have recently arrived from all parts of the world, from countries which present so great a contrast as England and Arabia. The greatest sensation in a compre hensive programme is the perform ance of Daredevil Desperado, who dives from the roof, a distance of 50 feet, on to a crescent-shaped wooden platform. Another per formance which draws forth gasps of amazement is that of Alfredo, the flying man. Wtzzen's Bedouin Arabs appear in whirlwind tumb ling, gun spidniug, and pyramid groupiug act. From America comes Madame Berzac, the millionaire lady horse trainer, with some wonder full horses and ponies. Rowland's Family Society Circus comes direct from England. Several ladies and gentlemen walk about...
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 6 October 1914
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Why a town so otherwise favored as Benalla should still suffer the inconvenience and excessive cost of such an heat-intensifying i'luminant passes my understand ing. There surely can be no two opinions as to the benefits to be derived from electricity as above gas. The former gives the far superior light without the accom panying heat inseparable from the latter, does away with all dirt aris ing from the use of gas, discolora tion of ceilings, work and incon venience of keeping mantles, glasses aud burners in order, and makes available the electric iron and fan, dispelling at once heat and flies ; and further rendering available a cheap aud effective power to all who may need it. Granting this, there remains but one question open to argument—cost; that is, cost of working, for it can be shewn that the cost of a daily necessity may be reduced and a daily saving made. The cost of installation should not enter into the question at all. In short, it i...

An Indian Sand-storm. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
An Indian Sand-storm. « Since sunset it had been growing gradually hotter until at Inst when we finally set tier! down to bed after a few envious remarks, in which Esquimaux and polar hears figured lar gely, there was none of us but would hu\e gladly exchanged places with any furnace tender in England. It was far too hot to sleep under bed clothes, and we had for some time used them to supplement the pil low. After opening all doors and win dows to their fullest extent and explaining to the punkah-wallah that the stopping of the punkahs was the signal for his immediate assas sination, we gradually dropped asleep. I Two or three hour3 later I was I aroused by what at first Beermed 1 to bo three or four batteries of ar tillery firing of! at close range. Ui on sitting up under my mos quito net I discovered the noise to be caused by the doors and windows banging to and fro. We who had not lenj been in the country were all the more astonished when we realised that all the time there was ...
DRAWING CATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
DRAWING CATS. Cots arc bad sitters in the orrli u»iv sonso ; the more you wa:.t to them quiet the more they u ill move, and the more you try the more suspicious you mako them. They are so fitful in their move ments, you have to rush your pen cil at its quickest pace, and mako strong, vivid, mental impressions. You cannot stop still to study— that would be fatal. You must rush while the impression of form is strong in your mind. Sometimes a sketch done in a few strokes will amplify afterwards at leisure in detail, and turn out well; but sometimes a most elabo rate skctch spoils by an after thought. The surest way for the student to start drawing cats is to buy a iliilling china cat modol. It can not run away ! Sandy was walking along the road •n deep thought, and it waa his minister who brought him to earth again with ;— "Halloa, Sandy 1 Thinking of the future, eh'?" " No," replied our hero, moodily. "To-morrow's the wife's birthday, and I'm thinking o' the present." In the clolstcrs...
Suits for Shipwrecks. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 9 October 1914
Suits for Shipwrecks. Sinco the tragedy of tho Titanic hundreds of ideas and inventions have been brought before shipping companies and tho Board of Trade authorities, with 'the object of mini mising tho risk of life at sea. Per haps tho' most. ingenious of these ideas is a device which takes the form of a combination of life-belt ind suit made of watertight can vas, which' envelops tho whole per son. The suit has sleeves ending In gloves, and thero is a port-hole in the head, which can he closed when tho weather is rough. When: this port-holo is closed, air enters through a tube above the head, this tube being so constructed that no water can enter. ~ Furnished with this device, it is claimed that a passenger might bo thrown into mid-Atlantic and livo in comfort for many days, while waiting to be picked up, for tho suit can be equipped with suffi cient food and drink to keep a shipwrecked passenger alivo for a weok or more.
