Prospects of Settlement More Hopeful. Melbourne, This Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
Proopect psit Settlen?ennt lioore. Hopeful. [BY WIRE.] M'elbourne, This Day. It is generally admitted that the pros. pects of a settlement of the Home Rlule trouble are more hopeful. Sir Edward Grey, speaking on the second reading of the Home luttle Bill, said he had never contemplated the use of force" until after the Elections had been livld, and could not conceive of any Government embarking on such a policy without first consulting the country. If provisional Government were established mn,Ulster, or disturbance occurred before the Irish Parliament were established, the army must uphold the authority of the Crown. He hinted that a settlement may bb effected on the basis of a Federal System if conversations are held between the Government and the Opposition, and subsequently that Unionist members of the House of Commons held a meeting and ipassed a resolution favoring a settlement of the issue on Federal lines. A Norwegian steamer suddenly left Kangeland Island, off Denmark, with...

Merino. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
Merino. A Merino Agricultural and Pastoral Soeiety is now formed, and an annual show likely to become a certainty; in. deed, it is a wonder that in a district containing so many. stock owners and farmers as ours, tle movement has not" been started before. It remained-for the A.N.A. to take the initiative, and judging from the large and enthusiastic meeting held on Monday night, their eltorts are likely to be well backed up by the public, and brought to a success ful issue. The president emphatically said at the meeting-"We are deter= mined to hold the show and see it through" and determination is a strong factor towards success in most things, but care and economy are jtist as essedi* tial. The Condah show was started with Gs for membership and moderati prizes, it is now £1 Is for membership, and is one of the beat shows in Victoria. Merino may follow suit with proper management, and the representative nature of the Committee is in itself a guarantee that the necessary details will ...

He Was Ready. ,. There'was recentl?'haiLed, lnto court a little. Irishman to whom the thing was a new experience. He was, how ever, unabashed, and wore the air of a man determined not to get the worst of it. "Prisoner at the bar," called out the clerk, "do you wish to challenge any of the Jury?" Whereupon the Celt looked the men in the box over very carefully, and with a skilled eye. "Well, I tell ye," he finally replied, "O'lm not exactly in trainin',. but 01 could pull off a round or two with that fat old boy in th' corner." me

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. By One Who Has Suffered I was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address I was to give to the Try Excelslor Class for Boys Only that evening. I had nearly hit on a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, who was absorbed in reading" "The Marchloness of the Mill" on an ad joining seat. The Infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I Ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded.with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "Delightful child,", he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to the child. I started. Was thls Infant to be forced upon me? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable," said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after. noon he has said nothing but 'Nice ...

PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 2 April 1914
PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. About whose proud and famous name, thin day, Are you adream? Your silken lashes seem Heavy, with secrets your red lips would say: Around your placid brow what rever ies play Their Merlin tune, In,this light-hearted noon Of girlhood, with its green and golden May? Within your gentle, rosy-finger hands, Where lilies sleep, Great destinies you keep Thrice happy he who kneels to your commandst From that gold disarray, your crown, what strands Shall gleam anew Some distant day, when you Wrap round a smaller head these fillet bands! What though the stealthy years en croach, you'll wait With your slow smile, A brief, imperious while, Dreaming white dreams till Love smiles from the gate Then, in the darkling years, may kindly Fate' This solace lend My dim eyes, and forfend That gracious, gradual end to youth's estate W.
