MR. FISHER'S CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914
MR. FISHER'S CAMPAIGN, MR FISHEn, the leader of the Corn, monwealth Labor party, has corn menced what is no doubt in, tended to be an epoch-making campaign. Sooth to say the initial addresses have not given promise of any areat advantage to the people from this, The leader of the Federal Opposition might have been expected to have said something worth listening to in Melbourne, It is the seat of government for the Commonwealth, Belog his firabst spoeech Is was sure of fairly full reports in the Victorian and interstate press, Above all, the oleo tore had a right to expect a seriouns contribution to the political thought of the day from ouch a man upon such an occasion, Yet a close examinatton of the addreso fails to disclose this, There is an old legal anecdote about a junior barrister who was given a hopelese cause to defend, his brief being marked "No case ; abuse the other side." This would appear to have been the advice taken by Mr. Fisher in connection with his speech. From the...

The Great MontamorI Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "'ho Knave of Hearts," CHlAPTER" XVIII, THE GAUNTIAET IS CAST. It was a sultry summer day the sun poured down on the pavemoents with muerciless power. The grass in the parks was visibly browning. The busY thoroughfares were crowded in the shade-empty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzlcd. Gwondolon llalldaro sat at her I.riting-table In her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat ties and outside blinds. Lilels and white sweet peas, with ferns, wore in the bowls and vases, A little fountain fed with rose-water played in the shaded balcony-a now idea of hers, its trickling suggested cool jess, just as in the dining-room be low the big lumps of ice among ferns not only suggested cold, but tom pred the heat. That, day everything connected with Lord Montamor seemed to her clear as the purest crystal. She was miserable, An active fight was at work within her between the part of her nature whi...

WHEN HAY IS AT ITS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914
WHEIN HIAY I,' AT IT BEST, Though an unweighablo quantity, the troma of grass has real value in rou. lering hay more palatable. When the un dissipates the do?w from the dry .mg grass in the meadow, we detect the ssoapiug aroma, because tlhe dow in ris, sig carries some of it into the atmos phere. Here is oune reason why hay should not remain scattered over the noadow at night. If now mown hay ies for a timeo in the sunlight, the Tleaching which we observo indicates :hat chemical changes are taking place within the grass stemns and leaves, and iuch changes are not of advantage. Greoen-coloured, sweot-smolling hay is really the beost, and prudent stockmen, .n secouring provender, will not overlook much seooemingly small points as preserve ing the aroma and proventing bleaoh4 tug.--Professor W.

AS TO TACT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914
AS TiO TA(T. T'ruth is a dangerous weapon in thl hands of a taotless and heartless person. "I hato you," said t dame the other lay to an old friend who was visiting her. "Yes, I hate you, because you don't grow old, and I do." Better to learn the " art of putting things," and say, "Do tell me the seorot of perpetual truth, for you certainly possess it," and give a pretty and truthfuil oomplimnent instead of a verbal blow, How quickly defects and fading chlarna and lack of success are noeted and em. phasised by our dearest friends. Inva lid, are especial marbyrs to the lack of tact; every year many are killed by brit tal truths, or by lack of tenderness, or by at feeling that they are a burden. Learn to admire rather than criticise, to say somoething pleasant instead of Buding fault, When rebuked yourself, turn the tables with a complimenoat.

"The chief reason for my presence in London to-day," he said to a "D)aly Express" representative, "is pressure of private business. lhut, at the same time, whenever I come to London I am always glad of the opportunity to visit the theatres, for I am a great admirer of the English stage, and so it comes that I have made uip my mind to see 'lhe Darling of the Gods,' in the hope that it might prove to be a suitable subject for an opera. I shall do my best to visit a rehearsal this evening, for I leave England for Italy at an early date.

Tho timo which is occupied in reaping sre. sults is as nothing compared with that which is neeoodful to work thornem out. It is the long hours of preparation which count for the chief factors in our lives, which build up our habits and make us ofliciont and able for the rovoro. The harvest is truly a joyous time to the industrious and capable farmer; but it is the weeks and months which have proceded it and made it possiblo - months of studying the noil, preparing the ground, ploughing, sowing, weeding and nourishing the young plant,--that have made him the intelligent and ob. servant mid competent agriculturist, who is able to fulfil his life-work suoe eossfully. It is the calm and pation" fulfilment of oevery duty day by day, whether results are evident or not, that formsa the fino and noblo charaotor, as well as the efficient w...
