HOSPITAL CONCERT. BY THE LOCAL IFRIENDLY SOCIETIES. Sunday's demonstration on behalf of the Mooroopna Hospital, by combined Friendly Societies of Sheppatrton, was suoccessfully succeeded on Tuesday even ing by a very acceptable concert in the Star Theatre.

JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE. FOOTBALLERS NOT AOTIVE, TRANSFER OF FATHER ROONEY (From Our Owvn Correspondent). There seems to be very little interese shown in football circles heso this es?a son,.the only inclination being so far the local shop hands iodulginc in sa kck during the lunch hour. Nothing has been done in placing the newly-pur chased recreation ground in order for the approaching season. Probably this may be accounted for by the appointing of farmers as a working bee to carry out the work. Their teams ere fully en. gagedin harvesting operations at pre. sent Foxes are again numerous on the hills adjsaoent to this town; and thanks to our local sports, many have already been laid low.[ The Wednesday after noon holiday-makers (male sex) have for some years past, during the winter months, turned their attention to thit class of amusenient, and no doubt profiat to some extent.

Eccentric Judoes. .Mr. Ure has had some eccentric predecessors on the Scottish Bench. Thie more eccentric of all was Lord Eskgrove.

She Knew. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 April 1914
She Knew. It was young Mrs. Robinson's first dinner-party, and she was suffering all the usual terrors of the inexperi enced hostess. However, the cook rose to the occa r. n splendidly, and, so far as the Sdinner itself was concerned, MIrs. Rob inson was delighted. Th're only fly in the ointment was Jane. Jane was the new parlor-maid; she was slow, clumsy, and her wait ing was bad. lBut, ill addition to these faults, she insisted on keeping her mouth wide open. This so got on Mrs. Robinson's nerves that at last she exclaimed: "Jane, your mouth is wide pen!" Jane withdrew\ heri gaze from the ceiling and said, looking down with a cheery smile: "I know it is, mna'am; I opened it myself!"
