The Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 7 May 1914
The Reason. A little girl of seven or eight years stood one day before a closed gate. A gentleman passed slowly. The little girl turned and said to him: "Will you please open this gate for me?"

A BOTANICAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 7 May 1914
Ai;' BOTANICAL CURIOSITY..': It i-s .time, we should learn mtre "aboiit that wonderful invention oi Diame .Nature known as the Venus ifly~trap :;hich, in the United States, finds its hpme mainly in .the swamps near- Wilmington, North Carolina." A specimen transplanted into moss and rich earth will thrive in the house ii kept very moist, and it makes the best kind of fly-trap, for it is always on duty and looks after itself. As the older traps lose their vitality fresh shoots appear and new traps are de veloped. The Venus fly-trap is regarded -as one of the greatest wonders of the plant world, for it seems to exercise a discrimination of taste that is more than human. It is provided with three delicate hair-triggers, and it exudes a sort of honey-dew that attracts the flies. Woe to the fly, however,. that touches one of the triggers, for, quick as a flash, the two heavy leaves of the ,trap close.upon the victim and crush it, much the same as- an ordinary, .steel trap acts.

SCOTTS WANTED HERE. The North and South Poles have both been discovered, but there are still .lots of places the geographical world is simply aching to have defln ite facts about.
