Orford Picnic Races. Officers - President, Mr M. Ryan, starter, Mr C. Riordan; judge, Mr R. J. Hockley; clerk of course, Mr G. Hock- ley; clerks of scales, Messrs J. Pope and M. J. Horan ; hon. secs., Messrs Thos. Roberts and Thos. McGrath ; stewards, Messrs T. Fitzpatrick, S. Pope, J. McGrath, B. Casey, W. J. Marshall. The above races were held on Saturday, and were splendidly attended, all parts of the surrounding districts being strongly represented. The sum of £15 was taken at the gate, which fact should dispel any misgivings as to the future success of the club. The racing track was some- what hard owing to the ravages of grass fires, which have been raging in the dis- trict during the past week, but this did not in any way interfere with trainers and owners sending tlheir charges to the post, consequently fair fields and good racing was the order of the day. Con- fusion and inconvenience were, however, caused through the rule of procedure adopted in regard to posting up the ha...

MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
MARRYING IN HASTE. DOES IT MEAN REPENTING AT LEISURE. 'The proverb "marry in haste, repent at leisure," would-be more satisfactory if someone would be kind enough co explain the exact meaning of the word "haste." No doubt the average sen sible snail, crossing a country road, imagines itself to be progressing at a breakneck pace and brilliantly dodg ing the motor traffic. It would be' surprised and hurt if it were to learn that we regard it as a symbol of ex treme slowness.. And there are human beings whose mental processes resemble the physical advance of the snail. They are think ing as.fast as tthey can. In their own opinion they are making up their minds with admirable velocity. But to the onlookers their calm leisureliness is maddening. -"How slow he is to propose!" ex claim all the friends of the girl w'hose suitor has' taken a year to come to th. point. Nevertheless, the good fellow may be rushing to his doom with what seems to him the speed and inevitable ness of an avalanche...
THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. There are some in this world who are compelled to tarry .at home. The great race of life goes on, and they, are left behind; they are too weak to run. They have nothing to do with the toil of the brain; their work is alf with the heart. But what a. work that is The toils of the hand and brain are nothing to it; these yield a solace to their en ergy, but the sad heart has only to bear. It is harder to bear than to do. I may be rudely jostled in the race, but the race itself gives an excitement that makes me forget nmy pain. I am there, at least, in the company of my fellow men. But to tarry, at home, to wait passive under the shadow of God, to have nothing to do but the burden of one great cross; this is the trial of life -this is the trial of love. So many young men have' emigrated to the United States and Canada- that the armies of Austria-Hungary are. short of recruits to the extent of about 1 100,000.
IS YOUR HAT SHABBY? [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
IS YOUR HAT SHABBY? If it is a white straw that has be come sunburnt during thel holidays, try cleaning it with' lemon juice and pow dered sulphur. Mix the lemon and sulphur together in a saucer and apply with a small brush--a penny nail brush will do ad mirably. Rinse the -hat well with clean cold water, and wipe with a dry cloth. Then place in a shady place to dry thorough ly.. If it is one of the sailor shapes it should be placed on a table or board to dry, in order to keep the brim flat. This treatment cleans and whitens 'wlite straws" beautifully,.
GIRLS' CHIT CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 February 1914
GIRLS' CHIT . CHAT. New Dress Details--Not many, sea sons back new fashions were marked by deoisive changes in the cut'of a skirt or a blouse, or the length of a coat. To-day's Fashions ard seen in the -sash, the sleeves, the collar and the chemisette, and the trimming motif. These new changes are delightfully fe minine and give a soft fussiness that is always more becoming to the greater majority of women than the severely plain, untrimmed type of clothes. Picturesque Sashes.-The true haremi note is reproduced in a single sash end hanging straight at tlhe centre front or at the side, weighted with a handsome adornment or tassel.
