Inter-Lodge Rifle Association. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 17 April 1914

Inter-Lodge Rifle, Association. An interestirig discussion took place at the last meeting of the delegates of the Inter-lodge Rifle Association, as to what constituted a friendly society. The question arose through Mr A. Skinner, (A.N.A.) stating that his branch desired that only members of Friendly Societies should take part in matches. Mr Lubeck (Fire Bri gade) then ~sked for the definition of a friendly 'society, and not re ceiving a satisfactory reply, further i asked if the Fire Brigade would be considered as such, seeing they paid into an accident and sick fund. Mr Campigli, on behalf of the Rail ways adduced a similar argument. Mr Lambden wanted to know if the question was introduced simply be cause the Fire Brigade and Rail ways were in the lead, and was as sured by Mr Skinner that such was not the case. They did not wish to debar clubs, but considered that all shooters shou'd be members of lodges. As this proposal did not meet with the approval, it was de cided to let the c...

Dodds) de manding an apology from W. A. Day, of the A.N.A. lodge, for an insult uttered at the recent shoot between these two lodges..

His lodge only had six men who could shoot,_and he'considered it a dirty slur on them to be accused of cun ningness. The Chairman (Mr Tasker) ad vised the I.O.O.F. not to take the matter seriously, as no harm was meant by ihe reriarks.' Mr Currie, however, refused to look upon it In that light, and was quite prepared to argue the point to the finish, but as most of the delegates were not disposed to en ter the discussion, no finality was arrived at.

Carnival and Fete. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 17 April 1914

Carnival and Fete. One of the most energetic institu tions in Seymour at the present time is the Tennis Club, and as a result of the efforts of the members, the town is now in possession of two of the finest courts in the north east. The outlay amounted to considerably over £100, and with the object of reducing this liability a carnival and fete was he:d on Easter Monday, which was well patronised by the public.., The sports were preceded by a fancy dress procession, but evidently these displays are not very popular, as there were only a few partici pants. In the small band, how ever, there were some good imper sonations. Mr H. Lamb was well "got up" as a Chinaman, andMr Goldby attracted much attention as a minstrel. A couple of Pieriots, a clown, ragtimers, stockman, and a swaggie were also noticeable. The most attractive feature of the procession was an artistically de corated cart, displaying the colors of the local cricket club. On the ground the public were provided with a gala...

By doing so you will infinitely extend your own talents, and you will raise. your whole conception of a life devoted to the .profession which you have chosen. It is only by unit ing these high ideals to the practioe of lifo that any success under any cir cumstances can be attained. Just consider for a moment. If you re gard your own avocation as a daily griid, only meant to grind money out for your own support, it ceases to have any good influence on your life, and as your connection with it grows longer a certain repulsion ...

Dunne says: .Regarding the possibility of inmrsas ing tihe fat percentage of the milk through the use of selected animals for breeding the investigations show: 1.

In dividing a herd into two sec tions, namely, thoso that throw after the bull and those that throw after the cow. the owner is able to substantiate with considerable preoision the influence of each parent animal on the offspring. 3. 'The influence o of hulls may be traced by comparing the average milk yield and fat percentage of the heifers sired by thenm with that of their-dams and, if possible, granddams at the same 4ag Tihe influence of the bull's damn and granddam on' the fat percentage in the milk of the heifers sired by him has been cl...
