YARRAGON. ' The contractor for the new mechan Íes' institute at Yarragon is making very fair progress with his work, which will be completed in a few weeks time. The official opening will take place about the middle of next month, and the ceremony in connection therewith will be performed by the Hon. J- E. Mackeyjr The new bailding will be a commodious and up-to-date structure,, with ample accommodation for all1 requirements, ^nd will be a vast im- ¡ provement oji the old mechanics' The ^committee is to be commended for thus providing a public building worthy of the town. The change in the weather has* prqv^év.yery beneficial, and has been heartily welcomed, in this part of the 1 district, not only by the farmers, but by the township inhabitants, as the supply of water for domestic purposes had, in many cases, become exhausted „ weeks ago.

BUYING EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 15 March 1906

BUYING EGGS. Some people (writes a poultryman) imagine that if tliey give a breeder, say, áí2 2s. for ft setting of eggs that at least three parts oE the chickens hatched should grow up perfect speci mens of their breed, and if exhibited should carry off the itrst prize. I would like to inform people of these views that they are lucny if they rear one bird from the whole setting fit to ex hibit. For example, I know a person who bought a setting of eggs at a high price from a noted breeder of Golden Wyandottes, and who, after hatching them, left them chieiiy to their own devices, allowed them to roost on narrow perches in draughty houses, and because most of these chickens grew up wry tailed and crooked breast ed Golden Wyandottes told all his friends that the above breeder had im posed on him. I would like to say that the best thing for people of this stamp to do is to buy birds, for if they want to breed show-birds they must first get eggs from good stock, and then take the best po...

MOE. "At Friday's meeting oí the Narrscan Shire Council, Cr Uoyd made eulogis tic reference to the work accomplished by the secretary (Mr B. Langford) ¡q the matter of setting in the rates. Over £600 had oeen collected, be said, since the previous meeting of the council, and be felt that Mr Langford was deserving of a hearty vote of thanks. Cr) Williams endorsed the remarks of Cr Lloyd.^Cr Williams drew attention to thé need of covering in some way the bridges, throughout the shire, which step he considered a wise one. Within twelve or eighteen months they would have to re-deck the bridges at the Moe Swamp drain, while other bridges would have to re ceive similar attention if some move in the above direction was not made. He noticed that the bridge over the Latrobe river had had to be re-docked -three or four times since it had been built, and felt that a deal of this ex pense woold be done away with if bis ^úgóestion was carried into effect.— CrV^nmiers thought they might also Ksid...

COURTESY IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 15 March 1906

COURTESY IN THE HClME, Tíie value oí courtesy In business I can harâly be overestimated,, but it 1 should, ia the ûrst place, be cultivated at home. There ia no reason why a husband should not treat his wifo with.exquis ite politeness; why a wife should not remember that her husband has a claim to be treated like a gentleman; why manners should »not be observed : by brothers and siBters. i Much may. be done by a nice atten ; Hon to the requirements of etiquette, by an observance of those laws which, govern the decencies and proprieties'' of life. Jt may be said it is the duty of each mem be!- of the family to do all that ! is possible tó promote the happiness of the other-members. It is, therefore, necessary to bear and forbear, to make jnutual conces sions, to cultivate a love of justice, honor, and to control our temper. ïn business, a reputation for politeness is not a drawback to a clerk or even ä proprietor, and most people will go out of their way to patronise a shop where the...

THOROUGHBREDS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 15 March 1906

THOROUGHBREDS ON THE FARM. H it is worth while to spend time aud effort iu the care and management of poultry such as is seen, most gen erally around the farm-home, it surely is better worth while to use that time and effort in the care of the most de sirable and most profitable pure-bred fowls. Without a doubt, every farm poultry-raiser would prefer a flock of thoroughbred poultry to the mongrels that compose the farm poultry; bred fowls. Then why do i more often, better poultry on t farm? The reason, 1 think, is the < pease a start in the better fowlB would I Hock. But the transformation may made, if made gradually, at very little j money outlay. Indeed, the { quired for the first step towards,« tfue possession of the pure-bred ^lö chicks, a much better beginning will be had if two or more settings are purchased. The price asked for eggs from pure bred fowls of good quality may seem outrageous and almost take your breath away, but my farmer friend, just think—it is not ...

CHAPTER XXXI. "A Man of Honor." ♦"But, Will," Alice began faintly, lier breath, almost taken away at the thought of wearing a coronet—of be coming the Marquise of Leith. "Hush, Alice!" the young man inter posed, with gentle authority; "you wrong me; you impute to mo a coward ly thought which never, for a moment, has entered my mind, by intimating that any condition in life over which Í have any. control would be allowed to separate us. You and I pledged our selves to each other three years ago, and, God willing, we will redeem that pledge when my course is completed, just one year from now. Now, dear, I know that you love me, and you are all the world to me; therefore, no false pride, no laws of so-called caste can ever come between us."

FATHER ROBINSON.

It was said that the , attendance was the largest on record I and certainly the enthusiasm was the : greatest. The rev. gentleman took his audience with him nu a visit to the South and East of Ireland, and, truth to say a more pleasant guide it would be difficult to find.
