IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 March 1914
IRRIGATION, GENEAL, satisfaction will be felt at the intelligence that Mr, Elwood Mead is to return to Victoria, The work done here by Mr Mead is of such a oharaoter as to have been of the greatest value to the State, It is no exaggeration, howtver, to say that it is only balt completed, When the policy of encouraging irrigation was first adopted here it was only half under. stood. There was a general impression that if only water were provided the desert would be made to blossom as the rose, The men on the land would enthusiastioally utiliso the life giving fluid, Fruits and cereals would spring from the soil as if by magic, Those who raised them would live in afflience, and Victoria would become a place of wealth and prosperity, Need. less to any these beautiful anticipations were not realised, The reasons were of a complex nature, Mistakes were made by the engineers who planned the irrigation sohemes, '.oh water that should have been supplied was in many oases wanting, mainly bec...

WHAT IS WORRY? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 March 1914
WHAT IS WORRYP Did you ever think what a wonder, fully significant word worry isP We use it to describe the treatment an animal gives to its victim. A dog will pounce upon a cat, shake it, toss it, re-capture it when it has half esca}ped, and finally maul it out of all resem ldance to its original being. . Well, that is nearly what we dA mentally in that useless process which we rightly call worrying. We seize upon some fact or fancy, turn and twist it into .every possible shape, view it with fear and foreboding until it is distorted out of all sate and na. rural proportions. To see things sim, ply as they are, and to become in, aapable of needless fretting, would onng such a reign of mental and bod. ily health as the world has never seen since Eden. l _

'Well, I don't think he tried to de ;eive me yesterday; I'm iielined to think he went." "But lhe didn't bring onck afly gameP" " That's what makes me fool sure he did go," was the wife's 'eply, . nlady once remarked to a clover actor who had a broken nose, "I like your acting, sir; but, to be frank with you, I can't get over your nose," " No wonder, madam," replied he; " the bridge is gone."

A TALE OF T.IIE ROYAL NAV , The following story illustrative of lord Nelson's genial kindness is re :orded in the diary of the Rev. A, J. Scott, Lord Nelson's secretary- Ono bright morning, when the ship was moving about four knot an hour through a very smooth sea, ov. arything on board being orderly and quiet, there was a sudden cry of DMan overboard." A midshipman named Flinn, a good draftsman, who had been sitting on the, deck comfort, ably sketching, started at the cry, and, looking over the side of the ship, he saw his own servant, who was nc swimmer, floundering in the sea. Before Flinn's jacket could be thrown off the captain of marines had sent a chair through the port-hole in the ward-room to keep the man float ing, and in the next instant' Flino had flung himself overboard and was swimming to the rescue. The Admiral, having witnessed th( whole. affair' from the quartor-deck, ?was ?higlilvy delighted with the scene; 'indl:'hein tlie party, chair and all, had been hauled on ...
