REAL BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
REAL BROKEN HEARTS. The late Sir George Paget, in one of his lectures which were published some years ago under the editorship of his son, stated that in most cases where death is attributed to "broken heart" no rupture of that organ has actually taken place, although un doubtedly mental troubles do fre quently cause disease of the body. He mentioned an actual case of broken heart which was cited by Dr. J. K. Mitchell, of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia. In an early period of his medical career, Dr. Mitchell acted as ship's doctor to a vessel sail ing from Liverpool to one of the American ports. He became on very good terms with the captain, who was eagerly anticipating the return voy age because then he was to be mar ried to the lady of his choice. He had brought many costly Jewels to pre sent to the lady as bridal gifts. So often did the captain discourse upon the lady and her charms that Dr. Mitchell became wearied, and avoid ed him whenever he could. When the ship landed, h...

BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
BEEF GROWING. ''The farmer -who increases the pro ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal suc cess, and, to an extent, becomes a public benefactor," says the "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro gressive stock raiser? There never was a time when there was so great a need of growing two pounds of beef where only one grew before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan ces, but very great improvement Is needed in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none can afford to raise scrubs. And none can afford not to feed up to the animal's full ca pacity.

What She Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
What She Wanted. She walked into the public library and sweetly said: "I would like 'The Red Boat,' please." The librarian diligently searched the catalogue and came back with: '" don't think we have such a book." Flushing a bit, she said sweetly, 'May the title be 'The Scarlet Yacht?"

SENATE CANDIDATES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
SENATE CANDIDATES. mHE ballot for the six candidates who are to carry the Liberal flag at the forthcoming election is drawing towards a close. All voting papers have to be returned before the end of the week. Mem. bers of Liberal leagues should bear this in mind; those who have already voted should rouse those so absorded in business or in domesic affairs as tu be torgetfal of political happenings; and, be it borne in mind,when a pre-election drags on for a fortnight there is a tendency on the part of many to leave the filling in of the ballot paper to that to-morrow when they may have faller information. Of those who delay some are sure to delay just a day too long, unless reinaea c oi y keener politicians. As a big vote, a vote thoroughly representative of all shades of Liberal opinion, is wanted, whole hearted Liberals have a fine field for the display of energy. It has been pointed out that as matters stand everything makes for the selection of the known men, who who are not nec...
