Points in Passing. Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

Points iri Passing. Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") The limit in trades unionism has now surely been reached. It is bad enough In all conscience for the community to be constantly up against strikes and industrial troub'es, but without doubt the limit has been reached when unionism assumes the role of National Dictator, and has the effrontery to raisr the standard of revolt against the all too tardy system of enlistment, its watch word being "Ignore Enlistment." Trades unionism has now become a menace to the Commonwealth Government and 3 foe to the Em piie. The suppression of auto cratic trades unionism, with its Crotnwellian decrees in a democracy such as Australia, will largely de pend on the courage with which this alarming phase of the question is handled by the Premier and the Minister for De etice. It is be coming more and more apparent that both the Commonwealth and some State Governments are mere uuppits put up and set down at the sweet will of the T...

AS IT WAS. or Reminiscences of Early Wedderburn. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

AS IT WAS. or Reminiscences of Early Wedder burn. [By a Pionkkr] The crowd of gold diggers that rushed from southern goldfields to Korong on reports of heavy nuggets being fo: d there, had, by March, 1853, returned whence they came having learned "twere better to bear the ills they had than fly to others they knew not of." It was true some coarse gold had been found, and the prospect of getting rich quickly enticed thousands of diggers from Forest Creek (now Cliewton) and Bendigo, where the, gold, although more regularly dis tributed, was seldom found in heavy pieces. But the prevailing condit ions on the new northern field were a big counterpoise to the chance for big nuggets; the summer was unus ually dry, there were no artificial receptacles for water, and. except for a small drainage found in the upi>er end of the fiat, the creek water holes, were not either large or numerous near the new location provided the only available supply to most part of the population near er than ...

Peace On Earth [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

Peace On Earth Hard still the shock of battle, fierce the clash of arms, With the ceaseless boom of cannon, where each restless army storms ; And fields arc filled with fallen, the rivers stained in blood, The flower of manhood falling—life withered in the bud. Oh, angered Lord of battle, why thus the sacrifice, The agony and bloodshed, the pen alty and price. Must a Kaiser's freak ambition un leash the hounds of lust, And shrivelling blasts of hell-fire rend mortals into dust. But we've stemmed the fiend's red deluge in its torrent flood of power, While Empires crcak and tremble, in the tense, eventful hour. Could we cringe before the Crcscnt, or yield to Teuton law ? — Westandlikebraveold Britons, while their threat'ning war-mists thaw. Though Christmas time is wilh us, no peace or good-will reigns, For the big guns yet are shrieking. fierce across the plains. Nor truce there'll be or casing, no lull upon the skies, Till the Kaiser's might comes sway ing and pride's ambition dies;...

THE RAISING OF A HALL AN EXPERIMENT IN LOCAL EFFORT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

THE RAISING OF A HALL AN EXPERIMENT IN LOCAL EFFORT. During the pioneering days of Australian life, when the quest for gold was tlie main incentive of Brit ain's wandering sons, and when men's leisure and surplus cash were woed and won by eager caterers to their lower instincts, and whose quest was lucre, there were always some whose benevolent ideas found expression in counter attractions of a more elevating and educative character. These turned to the Literary Institute as the most suit able and encouraging form by which to achievc their worthy motives. Thus, in the flourishing days of the Wedderburn goldlields, was estab lished the "Miners' Literary Insti tute and Free Library." To meet social necessities there was added in due course a hall, erected partly on the working bee plan. The structure served its useful purpose for many years, anil was the scenc of assemblies, entertainments, de bates and notable gatherings of which old residents entertain fond memories to this day. It ...

IV. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

IV. Down tho crumbling, stone steps that wound into tho musty-smelling vaults I went, swinging my lantern. The tomb Sir Charles had pointed out was easy to find. I set the lan tern down upon it and examined it. It was, I found, In a shocking state of repair. I'rom somewhere or other water dripped upon the head end near the edge, and the stone had ilakeil and crumbled away. Below the stone slab which formed the top of the tomb was a space, on the left at tills end, fully five Inches wide. I hesitated. After over four hundred years even a grave can contain little unpleasant, I reflected. I plunged In my hand and arm. I felt something hard and cold, the rim of some circular object. It seemed like a bowl, and lying in it I touched a lighter, smaller object, about the size of a marrow-fat pea. I withdrew my band, bringing with it what I held. It was a diamond. Again and again my hand shot in. bringing out gems by handfuls, some valueless—or almost valueless—agate, onyx, lapis lazuli, ame...

Magnesia for Dyspeptics. Specialist Rocommends it Instead of Drugs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

Magnesia for Dyspeptics. Specialist Rocommon'ds It /nstaad of Drugs. "Only those in constant, touch with sufferers from indigestion and dyspepsia can fully realise the harm done by the improper use of drugs and artificial digestants," remarked an eminent specialists recently. " Personally I rarely advocate the use of drugs in the treatment of digestive or stomach troubles, for in practically every instance 1 have proved the underlying causc to be excessive acidity of the stomach and consequent fermentation of the food contents. Therefore, in place of the once widely used drugs 1 invariably recommend the use of magnesia to neutralise the acidity and stop the food fermenting, and the wonderful" results 1 have obtained during the past three years convince me that there-is no liner treatment for indi gestion, dyspepsia, etc. It must, of course, be clearly understood that I do not employ or advise the use of such forms of magnesia as citrates, acetates, sulphates, &c. - these, wo...

The Man on the Land. POULTRY. Hatching and Rearing. Profiting by Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

The Man on the Land. POULTRY. Hatching and Rearing. Profiting by Exporionco. The hatching season just con- I eluded, so far as good percentages are concerned, appears to have been one of the most successful of recent years, says the poultry expert in his eunent notes. He considers that better selection of the breeding stock and the improved conditions under which they have been kept no doubt contributed to this result. A gratifying feature, too, is the way in which poultry keepers, for the most part, have acted both on the advice tendered them in these notes and on the lessons taught by their own bitter experience in the past with these late hatchings. The result «has been that on many farms the incubators have been closed down at the proper time, and rather than run late, many poultry keepers will no doubt make a small hatching during February and Match, and escape the worst rearing period. This ap parently drastic action on the part of poultry keepers who, though having hatched sl...

with which is incorporator the Boort Standard, Korong Vale Lancc. and Quam batook Herald. Interesting reading matter will be found on our sixth page. Thursday, December 23. 1915-16. There is a distinct psychological value in beginning afresh. The exponent of mental or moral science says the value lies in its giving just that small impulse to face oneself squarely and honestly and to profit by the process. In that sense, there is a value attaching to the fact of the New Year. Of course, there is nothing whatever to differentiate December 31, 1915, from January 1, 1916. The days are as identical, to all intents and purposes, as days ever are, the sole difference being that, as men measure Time, one day falls in one division and the other in the next. But therein lies the value- in the very fact of calling a halt, surveying the surroundings and beginning again. It leads one to think retrospectively, introspec tively, and prospectively. And one is always the belter for taking stock of h...

SIMPLE ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

SIMPLE ENOUGH. A manufacturer of some patent compound came into the laboratory of an analytical chemist one day with a bottle containing an unwholesome looldng mixture. "I would give £20," ho said, "to know what would make the water and oil in tills mixture separate." The chemist looked at the bottle. "Very well," ho said, "write out your cheque." "Cheque?" the other echoed. "Yes, your cheque for £20. You say you are willing to give that, and for that price I am willing to tell you what will make the water and oil se parate." The visitor hesitated a moment, and then wrote a cheque for the sum nam ed. The chemist carefully deposited it in his pocket-book, and then quietly dropped into the liquid a pinch of common salt. Instantly the water and oil separ ated, and whether the client was satis fied or not, he had got what ho want ed and ho had paid his own prlco for it.

YOUTHFUL HUMORISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

YOUTHFUL HUMORISTS. The Tennessee youth who described pl volcano as "a mountain where the world busts through," and the crater as "the place where it spits out," had his facts, though he clothed them in somewhat unusual terms. The.e was picturesqueness, too, in the small boy's description of a natural-history museum as "a dead circus." And joy was brought to the heart of Mark /wain by the sentence, "There's n great many donkeys in theological gardens." Sometimes, of course, the pupil will come to grief, especially in cases when one is asked to define a word and then use it. One attempt ran thus: "Despot —a ruler that is feared. My teacher swatted me with her despot." A fat boy, whose teacher gave him an unwise opening by saying: "You seem to be better fed than taught," retorted quickly: "Yes, sir; but, you see, I feeds myself." But far more unkind, even if unconsciously so, was the small boy who was asked to cor rect the sentence, "Our teacher am in sight." and who insisted that it ...
