AN HEROIC PRINCE. SAVING A REGIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
AN HEROIC PRINCE. SAVING 'A REGIMENT. The whole of Servia is proud of its Crown Prince, who is now recovering from a severe wound which he receiv ed sunder romantic circumstances, ac cording to a correspondent of a Petro gr.id paper. His Royal Highness had left Bel grade by motor -car fir the Servian po sition at Kroupnya. From Match kova Glava, he rode on Horseback. On arriving at the firing line, a sorry pic ture presented itself. Three battalions 0 f' the. 5th Regiment were subjected 1'-. \ terrific artillery and infantry fire, and they were leaving their position liinior the overwhelming pressure of t!is- tsnemy. The Anstrians, overjoyed at the prospect of victory, were, merci ?los'v pounding the unsupported regi ment. Already they were ncaring the one' battery which formed their last d."fence; and it was running short of ammunition. The position was des perate.. , With bated breath, the CrownPrince was witnessing the disappearance of 1 he l"st chance of victory, when sud denly,...
ON THE REGULATION OF PRICES BY GOVERNMENT. WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
ON THE REGULATION OF PRICES BY GOVERNMENT. WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO WHEAT. One of the dangers of Government interference in commercial matters ia that its co operation is always sought by interested persons who wish to use . the organised power to serve their own financial interests. This was certainly so at the recent Parliamentary enquiry regarding wheat. One gambling specu lator in his evidence given before the Commission advocated that about 4s should be the price at which holders should be compelled to .'ell. He has Rince b en compelled to place his affairs before a meeting of his creditors and had to reveal the fact that he had sold no less than 675,000 bushels of wheat which he did not hold at from 3s 9d to .is per bushel. With the natural price I at about 6s it is thus evident that he wished the Government to transfer by force, to himself, about L60.000 of value belonging to other people. Those who favor the Government Regulation of Prices urge that the organised force of t...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine.") A Home paper gives an amusing ac- j count of how entertaining Belgian:-, adds to the social status. To have only j one Belgian in your hose is to invite j a condescending pity, but the family that has two or three, though pleased, must, on the other hand, look with res pect- on those others that can beast of j their Kix or seven. Not pounds in th-j ! bank, but- Belgians in the drawing- J room or kitchcn, places you as a house- I holder, to be looked up to in England I now . We hope no one, with deceit ful pride, boasts of more Belgians i ban he possesses. There must be a tem tation. Billeted soldiers, again, ;iivu rise to arrogance. The soldier* also, even Jf mot intellectual themf-elve?. have an intelleetualising effect. One English woman confesses that she has felt compelled to throw away her novels and fill up her spare time by studying history since they came. Not to study war maps agaiu, seems, under the circumstances, terrible inertia. Was it not R....

Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
The old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to' those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a'feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of-their breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be. or how charming her. mannec. if her breath is foul; her charm is. gone, and she is at" a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses-in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of- herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled with this'complaint" will drive their friend...

A SHREWD RETORT A noted politician once began to raise a moustache, and while it was still in the budding stage he was ask ed at a dinner party to take to dinner an English girl who had decided op posite political viewB. "I am sorry," sand the Parliamen tarian, "we cannot agree on politics." "No we can't," rejoined the girl, "for to be frank with you, I love your politics as little as I do your mous tache." "Well," replied the M.P., "remember that you are sot really likely to come into contact with either."
THE MASTER PASSION CHAPTER XXXV. THE TEMPTER. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
---- THE --- MASTER PASSION Lillian -Ellerton.) CHAPTER XXXV. THE TEMPTER. Hi© ne?t day Ida did not appear in the studio; she 6ent down word that she had a headache. She felt that she could not meet her husband after the quarrel -of the night before. He had seared her heart with an indellible scar, and neither soothing words nor even apologies could heal that. What he had done, nothing could undo. He had shown her a new phase, of his character. and the revelation had left her aghast. That he could be jealous of a man she never spoke to, and rarely saw, was irritating, but that he could descend to such a depth of meanness in order as he would express himself, "to choke h,im off," she had not thought within tiie bounds of possibility, and it stag gered her. Indignant and bewildered, she lay awake till she was called. No wonder that her head ached, if only to match her heart. What would become of her through all the long years to come ? In the afternoon she heard the front door slam, a...

MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. . Concerning some parts of the district news conies but seldom. Now this is not tbe fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous powers of knowing what is happening ip H11 the places in the area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in silent- places. 7 Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood. Give information, but let criticism alone. The information will probably be right, and the public can make their own deductions therefrom. Do not bother about grammar -or spelling; it's the editors work to look after these trifles. Send along your Job Printing to the HERALD Office. It will be Promptly and neatly executed.
TEACHERS AND EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
TEACHERS AMD EDUCATION. The tcachers in elementary schools should no longer form a class apart, specially trained and certificated for one object. The self-protecting spir it is apt to form a hedge through which generous and daring ideas hardly find a way. and there is little doubt that the National Union of. Teachers, which is practically con fined to elementary teachers, is large ly inspired bv this self-protecting spirit. If such special treatment wore abandoned, and all properly qualified teachers regarded as equal ly available for any school, the pro fession would take its fitting rank, and be sufficiently wide to respond to the spirit of the time. The present division between elementary and se condary teachers and the compara tive isolation of the Universities trreaf'-u limit the power of education, and the children in the elementary schools are ' the grea+"st sufferers. The surrender by Oxford and Cam bridge of their position as leaders in national education is. I believe, on...
GOOD FARM TOOLS ARE PROFITABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
GOOD FABM TOOLS ARE - PROFITABLE. It is unnecessary to mention the value of machinery for the development ol agriculture, for we are past_ the stage >vhen improved farm machines wen looked upon as doubtful investments, It is a known fact that the _ improved machine will give better results in pro ducts and in most cases show a profit .upon tlie money invested in the ma slime. The type of farming carried on- and the size of the farm determines the amount one can invest in improved tools. There are too many farmers who are afraid to invest in improved tools. Oftentimes a better plough would have paid for itself in one season, when la bor was scarce and the number - of sea sonable days for ploughing few. Do not be afraid to buy something and make it pay for itself, instead of try ing to" make enough to purchase it by half-wav methods of farming. A day lost by breaking an old machine means pounds lost in the busy season of thfl year. The number who buy more ma- | isliinery than their...

THE BLIND CONCERT CO. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
THE BLIND CONCERT CO. The Association for Advancement of the Blind has many avenues of activity. For many years Mr Marks, though blind, has piloted tiiis institution through the troublous seas of adversity, and can fairly claim to have reached the calm waters of public favor* The Brighton Home shelters many afflicted with the fearful horror of perpetual darkness, but the surroundings are such that the misfortune is almost for gotten.

TURF TOPICS. (Written for [?] Heyfield "Herald") [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
TURF TOPICS. (Written for Heyfield "Herald") Recent sales of horses at what might fce called full value should be cheering to breeders sending yearlings into the autumn sales. As previously remarked there would still seem to be money for a. good- article in horseflesh. Possibly, in tiiii^s like the present, with some uncertainty about the future, owners may think twice before bidding high for yearlings ^vhich cannot, at best, show any return for the outlay for at least sis months. The young ones are soid in March and cannot race in Victoria until October. In ordinary circumstances, buyers do not mind waiting that long in the" hope of being rewarded in the end, but in these days money is money, and there fore investments which are slow to mature, cr may not mature at all, are scarcely in favor; Still the outlook for tho breeder might be a great deal worse. He cannot of course, expect the prices of prosperous years to be maintained this autumn, but there arc-, indications that the yea...
HEARD IN THE TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 28 January 1915
HEARD IN THE TRAIN. The old lady in the second CIbsb smoker could stand the argument no longer. "It's all very fine to say the British have done this, and the French have did that," said she, ''but any one can see its them there niggers or whatever thev are, them Alleys as is doing it all." No one volunteered to contradict the statement. The bellicose look in her eye made them quail. Evidently they were all married men. "Yes," she went on, "and them two generals the Alleys have is great sol diers. General Offensive is the right kiiid of general, as I told my Willie out at Broadmeadows camp this very morning. . I told him he must copy General Offensive who keeps battling on all along the line Then there's General Action, I think they call him. He's mentioned more often than your Joffresee and your Frenches. Only yesterday, after General Offensive Btarted those Alleys took a place with a foreign name. My front room bor der called it Dapwee. "Oh, yes! I'm"British all right, and I like ...
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 4 February 1915
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE 1. Cultivate and perfect your ideas. Experiment. The world is eager for something new, which, however simple it may be, will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasures-reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn !he procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a clever invention j-ut him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. F. Townsend, an editor, says of the "Inventors' Guide/' "I am re commending it strongly to friends. Best of the kind I uave seen. It should do a lot of good. It is an incentive telling him where he can obtain the "In ventors' Guide." 3. For yourself obtain this book, which tells what t...
The Heyfield Herald. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY MORNING [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 4 February 1915
PUBLISHED EVKIIY THURSDAY MORNING The thrill of patriotic pride which we naturally feel in our Australian soldiers has been somewhat subdued by reports of the conduct of a section of the young men in Melbourne, and by the account of the behavior of the troops in Egypt, as furnished by Cap tain Bean, the official correspondent. On three occasions our boys in Mel bourne got out of hand, once attempt ing to wreck |''Truth" office, then at tacking a cafe supposed to be the resort of Germans, and again conducting an assault on the Chinese quarters. Each of these attacks was organised, and it is at once evident that the fighting spirit of Australians is sufficient to make our enemies pause in astonish ment. But apart from these organised outbreaks, visitors to the. city will agree that the.conduct of some of the soldiers is such as to throw discrtdit on a tine body of men. An Imperial officer, referring (o the troops in Egypt, asked, "Do all Australians drink so much 1" The question may b...
HOSTAGE CITIES. M. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 4 February 1915
HOSTAGE CITIES. MAETERLINCK'S SUGGESTION. In the Paris "Figaro" Maurice Mae tcrlinck, the distinguished Belgian writer, makes the interesting sugges tion that, in view of the Gorman army's vandalism, the principle of hostages should be extended from individuals to cities. Here are his words: "To my certain personal knowledge the Grand Place, the Hotel de Ville, and the cathedral of Brussels are min ed, and only a spark would be required to reduce these marvels-the work of centuries of patient labor and love to nameless ruins. We have, sacrificed all without a murmur, but this would" surpass everything. What is to' be done, How can we stay their hand? They seem no longer to be amenable to reason, or to an}' of the sentiments which'"men hold in honor. They only seem sensible to blows. We shall soon have the, power, and they must realise it, to strike them hard." "Why should not the Allies, from this day forward, while there is yet time, nominate certain hostage cities which will answe...
