FOOTBALL. MEENIYAN V. STONY CREEK. ■ This match was played on tho Meeniyan ground on Saturday in the presence of a good crowd of spectatators. The ground was too wet for good football, the ball being very dead. Stony Creek were weakened by the absence of Frank Bell, and Meeniyan were without the services of A. Em merson. but they were strength ened by the inclusion of Syd. Beckham, who was looking well after his recent painful accident. The game resulted in an easy win for Stony Creek, who scored 7.4 to 2.5.- The players who shone out best for the winners were R. Bell, Boland, Zeuschner (2), Car micbael and Stansfield; and for the losers Beckham (2), Secomb, Kidd, Downs, Ross, Banks, Stan ley and Spencewere the best.
Correcting a Gusher. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
Correcting a Gusher. Bret Harte was so frequently com plimented as the author of "Little Breeches" that he was almost as sorry as was Colonel John Hay, the real author of the verses, who preferred his fame to rest 011 more ambitious works. A gushing lady who prided herself upon her literary taste said to him one :— "My dear Mr. Harte, I am so de lighted to meet you. I have read everything you ever wrote, but of all your" dialect verse there is none that compares with your 'Little Breeches.' " "I quite agree with you madam," said Mr. Harte; "but you have put the little breeches on the wrong man."
A KING AND A COUNTRY MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
A KING AND A COUNTRY MAID. The old King of Wurtemberg, ac companied only by his :dog, takes many long walks alon. the shores o£ Lake Constance during the summer. Recently he crossed in a little tourist steamer to Rorschach, on tho Swiss shore. As a simple traveller he en tered a restaurant and ordered a sandwich. "You have a beautiful dog there," remarked the waitress. "Yes, more beautiful than I am," tho King replied. "That is true, said the girl sim ply; "and certainly he is- far young er." "You are perfectly right." When he had eaten the sandwich, the King departed, leaving a gold piece on the table. The girl ran after him, to say that he had forgotten his change. "Oh, no," the King said, "you are to keep the gold piece, as a remem brance of the- King of Wurtemberg, to whom you have paid the unaccus tomed compliment of sincerity!"
Quips and Quiddites of the Man in the Street. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
Quips and Quiddites of the Man in the Street. (By Podargus.) Ah—Hah—Ah—A-fish-oo. Yes! Mr Compositor, ladies and gentle readers, it's " getting better." No need for expressions of sym pathy, condolences, letters,' tele grams, cards and floral tributes, &c., just at present or at any other time. "lis a jolly old world, even when you've got the " flu " you can get some fun out of it, and I wish to live long enough to give Thomas Alva Edison a chance to perfect his long pro mised storage battery, which he haR been " perfecting " for nearly half a century.

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his sweetheart: He is modest. He feels as if the shopman will suspect that he is engaged if he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. "Will you let me look at some rings ?" ."Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. He pretends to examine them critically, but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is going to get a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are passed over in review. . He selects none. He walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shopman, who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries them on his finger. He never picks o...

THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. A West Country -Scot, who had en gaged in the manufacture o£ a cer tain description of goods then recent ly introduced into that part of the country, found it necessary, or con jectured it mignt be profitable, to establish a permanent connection with some respectable house in London. With this design he packed up a quan tity of goods, equipped himself for the journey, and departed. Upon his arrival he made diligent inquiry as to those who were likely to prove his best customers, and accordingly pro ceeded to call upon one of the most opulent drapers, with whom he re solved to establish a regular corre spondence. When Saunders entered the shop in question he found it crowded with customers, and the salesmen all bustling about making sales, and displaying their wares to prospective purchasers. Saunders waited what he considered a reason able time; then in a lull of business laid down his pack, his bonnet, and staff upon the counter, and inquired for "the head o' ...
SHE WAS THE NECK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
SHE WAS THE NECK. There are husbands who, among their male companions, like to have it supposed that they are just a lit tle tyrannical at home. One such man, who had two or three friends at his house one evening, remarked, as they were chatting together com fortably at a rather late hour:— "Yes, I do what I like at home. My wife, she has to bend to my will, I can tell you. In my own house I'm a re gular Julius Caesar." His wife came into the room in time to hear this last sentence. The tyrant of his household looked a lit tle uneasy, but his wife neither frowned nor, apparently, paid any at tention to the remark. But, after a moment, she remarked, very positive ly: "Gentlemen, it is late, and Julius Caesar has got to go to bed." Whereupon the husband arose, stammered his excuses, and retired, leaving his guests to find their way o t as best they could. It was in another household that the husband once remarked to his wife: "You know, my dear, that I'm the hei'l of the house." "You....
THE ENSIGN FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
THE ENSIGN FRIDAY, JULY .17, 1914. OuK: contemporary^ latest effusion regarding that meeting at Welshpool is a long and pitiful wail beseeching, as it does,-that its readers will believe that tlil're was no reporter at Mr Bennett's meeting, or that it knew nothing of it. And for not having been forwarded a Bpecial invitation it criticises the tactics of the candidate or the organisers of that political gathering. But does it ever get a special'invitation to report political or other meetings! It dec 17s the Liberal p.^rty for sucli a lax of cour tesy, but had it been the Labor party that neglected to do it, nothing would have been said. Mr Bennett did not come up to make a pre-election or a policy speech, but merely to ref uto the statements made by Mr J. Fenton at his meeting, at which, by-the-bye, a direct representative of the " Echo " was not present. But perhaps it did not have a special invitation, although in that instauce the meeting was ad vertised, and, of course) it can m...
LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess no inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, ami judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. ~ Cynical people insist that the im mense liumbv.:* of young lawyers turned loose upon the community ev°ry year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g'ven to litigation within tlie last few years. Immoral glaziers " out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demand for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage. However this may be, it is quite certain that tl • proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the d...

STRANGE LEGACIES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
STRANGE LEGACIES. Many cases are on record of singu lar bequests. Some years ago in New Orleans there died a wealthy old man who had been noted for his shrewd ness in business matters. One of the bequests in his long will was a hair brush that he had used for many years. This brush he gave to a ne phew .with the proviso that the brush should be kept in the family vault one month out of twelve and in a' mahog any box. The acceptance of the brush meant that the nephew was to inherit and enjoy two-thirds of the estate. Margaret Ann Epping, of San Fran cisco, left one thousand pounds each to ten of her nephews about six years ago, but the condition was that her tombstone was to be replaced every two years with a new one on which each nephew in turn "should cause to be chiselled an appropriate verse set ting forth his love and affection." Jabez Hollister, of Montreal, left his two sons the use of a corn razor that he—a cutler—had specially ground and fixed up for chiropedic use. "For the...
DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. The most obvious and appreciable value of the dairy industry to a State is found in the worth of its products (writes the "Farm and Home"). This includes butter and cheese, the milk used as food, and the by-products of the dairy in veal and pork. It does not include the other very important by-produce—the manure, which, if properly conserved and applied to the soil, would reach a large value. Care ful experimentation has shown that the excreta of a dairy cow is worth about 4d. per day, computed at the standard valuation of the plant food substances which they contain. The worth of the manure is conditional upon the character and amount of the based upon higher feeding than some food supplied to the animal, and the current estimates of value may be dairymen practise. This 'by-product is not sold. If the dairying is pro perly done, every possible part of it is restored to the soil, not only main taining, but increasing its fertility. The d...
