HOME GARDENING. "Irish Lad's" Advice [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 September 1924

HOME GARDENING. " Irish Lad's" Advice By "Heather Jock." In dealing with the question (,i' growing cucumbers between the sweet corn, your correspondent, "Irish Lad," makes some very definite statements and suggestions, which are in direct conflictivith geenral experience in prac tice. It is quite evident that whether or .not your correspondent is properly designated by his pen name, he is cer tainly not a true example of the land of the heather and the flood, as the motto of that race, which has proved the back bone of their success, has at all times been "if at first you don't succeed try and try again." Ile claims to have made a dismal failure of the method suggested by me. It would be futile for me to endeavour to diagnose the cause of such failure without knowing more of the actual circumstances; but doubtless there was some clear and simple reason for the failure, which had no connection whatsoever with the principle which I advocated. In recent years in Austra lia hundreds of ...

PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS IIINDJ)ANCES OR 1IlLPS (By Ratepayer.) At a recent meeting of the Keilor Council the pro.ceedings were marked by the reception of a deputation representing the Sydenham Progress Association, a member of which, while addressing councillors, made the remark that the Maribyrnong .iding hadl been treated in a "lacka .siccal" manner.

"CROOKS" AT HOME PLEASANT NEIGHBOURS AND GOOD CITIZENS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 September 1924

"CROOKS" AT HOME. 'PLEASANT N7EIGHBOURS AND GOOD CITIZENS. It is a curious fact that many ot the most daring and dangerous crim inals have been known in private life aot only as quiet, peaceable men, but as the most pleasant and popular of neaghbours. 'ThI , oddly enough, seems to be , specially the case with men who go i for the more violent forms of crime, such as burglary. It is not long since a Glasgow "gentleman burglar" was sentenced to six years', penal servitude. Although this man had spent twelve years of his life in convict prisons, he was one of the most delightful, hospitable, and popui lar of fellows. He had his town and seaside houses, and a srrmptuously appointed yacht ; he entertained his friends in a princely manner, and was voted by ,all who knew him the "best of good fellows." He even had a reputation for piety, and was a zealous church-goer. His admirers did not know that he would occasionally leave the church before the service was over to ransack the house of o...
