Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 19 June 1914
. Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me of 0110 thing." "What's that?" "That there arc mighty few days in tho year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." Friendship can somotlmoa show Its strength as much by tho' readiness with which it accepts benefits as by tho freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side. Life, upon tho whole, is much more pleasurable than painful, otherwise wo should not feel pain so Impatient ly when it comes.

ODD THINGS IN ^ \TURE Mitchell, mi '-0,1,1 in Xnturn" M>! th« nlii-nl lor. tit these present and was illustrated with u wealth of detail that sparkled with originality while displaying a oloso knowledge of liia subjoct. Dividing his subject into two Beo tions, he first dealt with the Ocean, showing its great dimensity and how it rapidly stretched from shallow lagoon to a dopth of nearly seven miles and ranging from the poles to tho equator. Mariners and others who havo al leged theoxistenco of Sea serpents may have had goad grounds for their beliefs, and in his opinion the aea aerpont was not wholly dno to rum and shattered nerves. Tho soa snakes in tho tropics and possibly in some of the old world saurian monsters to be found in various parts, tho Oar fish in Bass straits, some of which grow to 18 feet in longth, may provide a cluo to the gonuine sfca-ser pont.

Good judges of poultry considered that the show closely approaohod any in tho Metropolitan centres, as a big percentage of the birds showed ex ceptional quality. Local breeders wore well up in tho honorB, and considering that tho shows is yet in its infancy and Trafalgar is pracn ticnlly new to the poultry industry, the number of local prize-winners speaks creditably for tho district.
