PLAYING TO THE GALLERY. THE WATCH ME[?] MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 19 September 1913

PLAYING TO THE GALLERY, j 1—.— THE "WATCH ME'#* MAN. Jn every walk of life we comc across the "Watch.Me" typo of iTan. One day he is a wag in-the railway carriage, who never loses a chance of saying something which he sup poses to be tunny for the sa^e of nn encouraging smilo from the other oc cupants. The next, he is balancing himself for a high dive from the pier-head, waiting only, vnlil he is the observed of all observers. This thirst for public praise has in all ages been the undoing of most weak men and some strong ones, and,, in work as in play, the temptation to win the plaudits of the crowd is one that must be sternly resisted by liim who means to succccd. One fact ts .undeniable, and that it? the \respon sibility of the. women for this Jove of showing off in the men. As a rule this love of fhowing off in public, is fatal to success, whether in games or in the more serious is sues of life. Working or playing, the strong man cares nothing for the gallery. Inex orably, and of...

In Mathoura district the estimate*! area under wheat is 1.3,530 acrcs, as against 8,964 last year.

COBRAM. VVc arc informed lluit after paying all expenses in connec tion with the recent R.C. ball at. Cobram, a profit of £48/5/ was realised, which very highly ratifying result, we think, rc ccts the greatest credit 011 the lion, secretary (Mr. L. I£. Man nix), as well as the committee, the ladies, and all who in any way helped towards the success. From a map issued recently by. the Commonwealth .'Meteor ologist, which shows the rainfall for the State of Victoria during last month, we note that the cjuanity recorded for the north ern country was 34 per cent, less than the average, winch is a rather serious decrease for the time of year. The crops and grass hereabouts look healthy, .however., and though the former arc somewhat backward they show 110 signs of" languishing. The rainfall recorded locally fdr August was 91 points, which is just 42 points under the aver age. An event which is bound to excite keen interest at the Cob rtiui Show' is the Grbtna Green race for members of the...
