WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? IE so, here is a recipe—'buy wrecks. A beach boat which cost about £200 to 'build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Soutliport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a large quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the- aibility to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consiste...

FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. Interesting information is given in "How to Become a Boxer" regarding earnings of men who have won laur els in the ring. Packy M'Farland, it is stated, was discovered to have box ing talent when working at the age of fifteen in the Chicago packing yards.

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, ! how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with its silent melodrama under the dawning heavens—or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Mouffetard—or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer o£ the drabs in the Place' Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your" peoples—or-the -ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France—little Paquerette is dead. And you are old now and married, and there are the children to look nut for—they're at the school age — and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, four thousand miles beyond the seas Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city—it is Youth. And Youth never dies. ...
TOWONG SHIRE COUNCIL. ENGINEER'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
TOWONG SHIRE COUNCIL. I ENGINEER'S REPORT. Following are the more particularly interesting clauseB of engineer's report, read at . last mooting o£ Towong Shire I Council;— MITTA HIDING. I inspected culvert on Tabba Road, near Spring Greek turn-off, and recom mend that same be removed, and pipe culvert be substituted to carry any sur plus drainage water, as there is 110! necessity for large existing timber culvert at this place. The proposal to improve grade over Tabba Gup is not an easy one, and there are two alternatives:—First, to oarry road rouud by deviation, on a grade of 1 in 30 or so on river aide. Secondly, to improve present grade of 1 in 12 to 1 in I 18 by cutting into hill on upper side of road on both sides of gap. The first proposition is undoubtedly the better one, and would be a final solution of the difficulty, though increasing length of road perhaps half a mile and entailing some expense for purchase of road, or rather exchange of road. I would thero construction o...
Pluck in Defeat. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
Pluck in Defeat. A recent Socialist candidate said of his defeat: "At any rate we put up, we Social ists, a 'brave if hopeless fight. And now, in our defeat, we are as cheery as the traveller. He bought a ticket, and then, going out on the platform, said: " 'How soon does the train start?' " " 'Why, there she goes now,' said a station hand. 'You've just missed her.' "The traveller leapt on to the line and set out in pursuit of the train with all his might. But in two or three minutes he came trudging hack over the ties. "A laughing crowd had gathered, and the station hand said: " 'Well, did you catch her?' " 'No,' said the traveller; 'but, by jingo, I made her puff.'"

OMEO TOPICS. [FROM THE STANDARD.! A.t a meeting last week, the direo tora of the' Omoo Butter Factory Proprietary decided to close the fac tory for the season from the end of March. The rain catne so late that most of the cows have been turned out, and, no. matter how good an autumn season we may have, there will not be auffloient cream to keep the factory going. ■ For a few months past it has been possible for Melbourne to be reached from Omeo in one day, by means-of the motor car service established by Mr. F. Nattrass between Omeo and Bairnsdale, and great was the joy of those who had hitherto had to put up with the slow coach service.'

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
OLD ROETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree. No grove of whispering saplings Would malce a home for me. I'd go where the old oaks gather, Serene and good and strong, And they would not sigh and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away. They won't be still like honest men And listen to .what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul. But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should he a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young. For they worry about the wars to be fought And the...

START. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914
START. There's art in a start. Every good thing has waited for years, perhaps for ages, and only for a starter. The good things In our life hare waited in the same way, perhaps are waiting still. The art of start is this: Just begin. "Don't wait to feel like it, for you won't. Don't wait till it is easier, for it never will be. > C If the thing ought to be done, start it, and start it now.
