Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 5 August 1914

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. Mr W. A. Lacey, a buyer for the Gippsland Co-operative Bacon Curing Company, will forward ...

THE MO-'AWKS. A VERITABLE TRIUMPH FOR OUR LOCAL TALENT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 5 August 1914

THE KflO-'AWKS. A VERITABLE TRIUMPH FOR OUE LOCAL TALENT. History repeated itself in Moe on Wed nesday evening last, when the Mo-'awks Amateur Minstrel Company occupied the stage of the local Mechanics' Institute. It is now nearly a score of years since a "burnt-cork" party of local amateurs af forded many treats to our residents, and it is hoped that the new company will not pass out of date with the one entertainment re cently given; and—with the talent that was displayed on the opening night—the local residents are not likely to permit such vocal and characteristic ability to remain any longer "hidden under a bushel." Of the old company of miustrels, there are at pre sent alive—Messrs Cooper, Bullock, G. White, Chas. and Herman Brache, Constable Goldworth, and last, but not least,, the evergreen Mr R. B. Davies, who it is hoped will be among the new company's artists at no distant date. In the early days, only two corner-men were in evidence, butto-daj' the fashion is four, and "...

COUNCIL JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 5 August 1914

GOUNCIL JOTTINGS. » At last council meeting, Cr Mahony 6tated that two items appeared on the paysheet (one for £10, and the other for £5 12s), the work in connection with which had not been authorised by the council.—The Engineer ex plained that the £10 job was authorised by the council in ex-Cr Lamont's time, but the contractor (Mr Clegg) had held the work over for some time on account of bad weather. This contract was situa ted on Needham's road. The other work (16 chains of grubbing and forming) was on Gaunt's road, which Cr Beck had authorised.—Cr J'eck said that they had made the allotments for the various roads, and as the amount was only 12s over and above the sum which it was decided that works of that value should be tendered for, he thought he was doing no great amount of harm in ordering that the work be taken in hand. However, he apologised for having offended in the aforementioned way, and said it would not occur again.—Cr Mahony men tioned that he and another councillo...

Last Saturday at Flem ington was a revelation. Mr. Byron Moore and .his committee need not worry their heads about providing more jumping events; there are enough thrills in the crowd of wo menfolk that parade on the stand side of the race-track. Fair creatures in tiger-skins, leopard-skins and bear skins. More of them than were ever stocked in any forest jungle. Cup figures may not be approached in at tendance, but in average cost of wo men's apparel the National meeting is miles ahead. Lovely woman comes out in all her luxury. If it is not tiger skins, leopard skins, or bear skins, it is furs from the Polar seas, ermine seal or minx, and if you cannot reach them there is N.Z. coney—all costing money.

In a quiet Sussex village there was recently held a celebration in the schoolroom at the dedication of a new fire engine. It was a giddy evening, with three speeches by local clergy men and a long-winded oration by a bald-headed politician. The gem o£ the evning was the following toast: "May she (the fire engine be like the dear old maids of our village— always ready, but never wanted!" A man went to a judge and asked whether he could bring suit for slan der against a man who had called him a rhinoceros. "Why, certainly," said the judge. . When did he call you that?" "About three years ago." "And you only start suit to-day!" "But, your honor, yesterday I saw a rhi~ tceros for the first time."

IN CHANCERY. A LEGEND THAT DIES HARD. Of all the hoary and oft-expressed myths going, there'is none, apparent ly, that dies so hard as the myth that. there are untold ■ millions lying un-. claimed in the possession of the Brit ish Court of Chancery. There isn t any British Court of Chancery, by the by, and hasn't been for a quarter of a century or more, but that is a de tail. What is the truth about the un claimed funds in Chancery? Every three years the paymaster of the Su preme Court. of Judicature — which took over the functions of the • old Court of Chancery—issues a report on them, and a new one came out a;. few days ago. An Interesting Record. A quaint and many ways interest ing record, it shows that there are actually unclaimed funds in Chan cery to the value of £1,500,000.

THE VANISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914

THE VANISHED. A thing on which I used to dote Was lovely woman's petticoat. Of all the duds she ever wore (And heaven knows they've been galore), None was so dainty, and so natty, None was so feminine, so pretty, None seemed so modest, and so neat Above a pair of pretty feet, None had the charm o'er which I gloat Like the old-fashioned petticoat. I loved to see her lift her gown When crossing puddles in the town. I loved to see her petticoat— Its lacy, fluttering frills afloat— Blow round and round her ankles small, In graceful eddies rise and fall, As if to say, "I am too gay, Too lovely far to hide away." Sometimes 'twas petticoat of silk Or shimmering satin, or that ilk, And as before the cosy grate We two were wont' to meditate, The flame burned high, with maiden thrift Her pretty evening gown she'd lift And bring to my enchanted view Her petticoat of rosy hue. Or if to work she was inclined, Her petticoat bespoke her mind. Of gingham, simple, strong, and plain, 'Tvrould wash an...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. "A Bloke" has this to say.—"A low brute of a working man," as E. de Vere Smythe would Bay, had a bit of luck the other day. He was toiling and moiling at excavation work, when j he came on a handy little pile of 18 sovereigns planted by someone in the days that never come back. "Some 'as luck and some 'asn't." For in-, stance, a Wooloongabba (Brisbane) carpenter was demolishing an old wooden house in that suburb, when he came upon a find of 27 spade guineas, probably planted there when Moreton Bay was a convict settle ment. As spade guineas go, they are worth more than the ordinary twenty one shillings, and the lucky finder got a bit over when he realised on them. Then the "low brute" took a ticket in Tatt.'s, and, his luck still holding, won a £5000 Tatt,!s prize. Then the "low brute" launched out on his own in railway construction work. His luck held good, and he made his pile. He is no longer "a low brute." He has emigrated, from the land that made him and r...
