Dut he ran. Hie ran surprlsIngly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for office, and he got to the fence first lIe clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull contem plating thle operation. "What do you mean..sir," asked the irate stateoman, "by having an lnfur lated animnal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose tile bull has some' right in the field," said the farmer. "Right? Do you know who I am; sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir-" "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" snail the farmer.

FOOTBALL, BERWICK V. NAR NAR GOON. On Saturday last the ierwick team journeyed to Nar Nar Goon to meet.the locals. The three o'clock train ran on and carried 42 passengers from Pakenham to Nar Nar Goon. Berwick were withouti Baxter, Luke, E. Eipie, Wauchope and Roberts, while Nat Nar Goon wvre well represented. The game resulted in favor of the home team by 1.16 (22 points) to 2.7 (19 points). A. Sherriff and R. Munro got Berwick's goals and Menzies scored the goal for Natr Nar Goon. The ground is quite unsuitable for football, being rough and tussocky; but efftorts are being made by the local football club to obtain a proper recreation ground, where imp'ovements can be made. The game was contested throughout in the best of spiric. and Pattison, who acted as cen tral umpire, had an easy task, though he used his whistle freely all day and penalised both sides in many cases unnecessarily. For Nat Nar Goon, Menzies, Moore Bros. and Hawker played clever ft'ootball, while Richardson, Mun...

FOR QUIET MOMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 3 June 1914
FOR QUIET MOMENTS. Words are the coin of thought. Content is the short cut to happi ness. Aim at the highest and at least you soar. The sweetest grapes hang *,ighest That Is gold ,what Is worth gold. We make our disappointments by being too exacting. The streams of small pleasures fill the lake of happiness. By the street By-and-bye we arrive at the house of Never. Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one. Soon ripe, soon rotten; soon wise, soon foolish. IHe who has no plagues makes him self some. It Is our own most prominent fault that looks ugliest in another. It is by what we do, not by what is done for us, that we become strong or good. The inan who has no money in his purse must have honey in his mouth When men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it be good or bad. He who would eat the kernel must crack the nut--he who would hav': the gain must have the pain.

LAST week' Empire Day was celebrated throughout the nation with a magnificence and enthu siasm that eclipsed all former efforts. National and commer cial institutions joined forces with the educational establish ments in fittingly keeping the day. It was not merely a juven ile day as heretofore, but the adults of the empire manife.nted their interest in the movement in an unmistakeable manner. Stirring speeches of a brilliant character were delivered and the spirit of Empire was truly abroad. This is as it should be. This year, however, many forces are at work at home and abroad which cast dark shadows over the horizon of nations, and the sons and daughters of the empire felt as perhaps they have never felt before that it is necessary for all parts of the empire to be drawn closer together, and the worth and significance of empire: realised. The significance of the celebrations was to make people understand the unity and solid arity of the 'empire in all its scattered parts. It was ...
