Land Settlement [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
Land Settlement Last Session the House of Assem- bly passed a Lands Act Amend- ment bill, that is to be presented to the Legislative Council, soon after it meets in July next. Among the clauses, is one that binds the select- or of a 50-acre block to reside on it within i2 months of obtaining pos- session. Mr Whitsitt and five others strenuously opposed this clause As most people know, land likely to become available fur selection in the future is heavily timbered, and scrubbing is the first work he mnst undertake.' Then he has to wait (or a suitable burn, so where would Iiis residence bc in a forest on lire! Even in some sett'ed districts, when a bush lire breaks out res'dences are often threatened. Again, in a summer like the one just ended a burn could not be secured, so Mr. Whitsitt's objection to the particular clause is well founded. No one is going to reside on a bloCK with such prospective conditions. The clause wi 1 also tell against a man anxious lo make home for his family...

VARIOUS MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
VARIOUS MISTAKES. It is a mistake to work when you are not in a fit condition to do BO. To tako off heavy underclothing out of season, simply because you havo boccvfio over heated. To think that tho more a person cats tho healthier and stronger ho will become. To be- lieve that children can do as much work as grown people, and that the moro they study tho more they learn. To go to bed late at night, and rise at daybreak and imagine that every hour taken from sleep is an hour gained. To imagine that if a little work or oxorciso is good, violent or "j prolonged exorcise - is bolter. Tu ' "' concludn that tho smallest ruum in ; tho houso is largo enough to -Ji-up in. To_sleop exposed to a direct draught at any season.

Football. SCOTTSDALE [?] DRANXHOLM RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
Football. SCOTTSDALE Y: BRANXHOLM I RAILWAY, I Unfortunately Branxholm only brought fourteen men and had to make up their team on the ground. The game needs little description. It was a onesided affair right from the start although the Branxholm lads made a determined ass stance in the first quarter. After that Scottsdale had things very much their own way and continued to put on goals and behinds in a creditable way. The game was played in a good friendly spirit and although a little willing at times showed none of the spiteful exhibitions that so often tend to spoil the game and rob it of its interest. In the last quarter players crowded the ball hardly any men keeping their places but in this both sides were equally at fault. Orchard umpired well for a be- ginner. The Final Tally. Scottsdale g goals 7 behinds Branxholm 1 goal 4 behinds Lynex (4), Gill, D Kilworth, Saunders, Fair, Quinn kicked the goals for Sçottsçlale, and Murray for Branxholm All the Scottsdale men played well t...
STORIES OF CONJURING AND CONJURORS. Playing With a Sceptic. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
STORIES OF CONJURING AND CONJURORS. Playing With a Sceptic. Thc late Alexandre Herrmann was, once giving a parlour perform- ance in London. There was pre- sent a bored-looking Englishman who greeted all the magician's leger- demain with a supercilious sneer. Herrmann, a bit exasperated by his attitude, finally turned to the sceptic and remarked, "I see that you are very familiar with magic. I should like to ask your opinion of a new card trick I have. Will you oblige me by taking a card from this pack?" "Would you mind my suggesting that you use an unoponed pack of cards?" said the sceptic, looking round with an air of wisdom. "Certainly not," said the magic- ian, waving away a pack one of thc servants brought him. "Please open the pack yourself." The sceptic opened the pack and ran through the cards to make sure they^ were all right. So far as he could see, they were just ordinary playing cards. Apparently satisfied, he handed them to the conjuror. "Take a card," said Herrmann, ext...

NIGHT! [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
NICHTI If all night's diadems wore drowned in Light, If the great orb of Day should nev- er set, Would not our hearts long for the softening sheen That comes at even, soothing pain and fret? If God has said, "There shall be NiRht no mora !" How could wc face the cloudless light of noon. Should we not wait in panting eager- ness And for the gentle darkness pray full soon. To be compelled to live in endless "Light, How awful even is the thought of this ; To give for ever up thc gems of Heaven I Could God give us a compensating bliss? -Irene E. Toyc Warner.
Poetry of the Week. WHY? [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 27 May 1911
Poetry oí the Week, j A clever versifier thus depicts the difficulties of a foreigner in learning the English language: When the English tangue we speak, Why is break nut rhymed with freak? Will you tell nie why it's true We say sew but likewise few? And the maker oí a VITSC Cannot cap his horse with worse? Beard sounds not the same as heard; Cord is different from word; Cow is cow, but low is low; Shoo is nover rhymed with foo. Think of hose and dust? und loso, And of Koose and yet oí rhoose. Think of comb and tomb and bomb, Doll ¡md roll rind hun»- and some. And since pay is rhymed with say, Why not paid with said, I pray? We have blood and foo.! and good, Mould is not pronominal like could. Wherefore done and gone and lone? Is there any reason known? And in short, it HVIMUM tu mo, Sound and letters disagice.
