IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. ' Many" people throughout :the~ world are cherishing "the idea that some day war will become a thing of the past, and universal peace will foe establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have ibeen given to the cause; •but is the ideal Btate possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace?

As far iback in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have :been fighting for the mastery one over another.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

A TRUE STORY.' A number of years ago some miners in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it "appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within their remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life... When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange -.hing occurred. The old lady fell on be corpse, and kissea it, and address ed it by every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only' love, and she had waited tor him her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. The old lady and young man had been betrothed sixty years before. Her lover had disappeared myseriously, ind she had kept her faith durin...

WATER STORAGE. THE: NlLLAHCOOTtE scheme. ITS. .. CARRYING OUT ADVO cated. . . " History repeats itself, and so do dry seasons. For something like a quarter of a century. tin; people of this district have been agitating with more or less en thusiasm for the water storage scheme on the Broken River. At times the public bodies in whose hands the destinies of this place have been placed have taken the matter' up with something like vim, but, apparently, they have not yet recovered from the bat tle with the late Minister of \Vater Supply. One fact that stands out perfectly clear is that the people are now laced with another dry spell, entailing shortness of water, which could have been avoided if the Nillah cootie scheme had been carried out. During the past three months there has not been re corded locally as many inches of rain, and the consequence is a very marked eil'ect on the llow of the Broken River. For some time—fourr or llvo weeks —there has been no water going down the Broken ...

I Reassuring. " It was rather rough weather at sear and the captain was continually being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was a/board. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the Btokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the .captain. !The parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said the parson, and went away satisfied; tout soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank 'Heaven they!re still at it."

A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 March 1914

A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Some years ago (says a reader) I was employed as "general" in Scot land. We -were having exceedingly cold weather, so cola indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, it heing much warmer there. I had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when clang, clang, clang! went any master's and mis tress's ibedroom 'bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did not intend to an swer it; 'but in a few seconds, clang, clang, clang! went that bell ogain. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a shawl round my shoulders, and opened the kitchen door. M&amp;mistress, who was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it under the pillow?" 1 asked. Then Mr. A. roared: "No; and you'd better come and find it!" Upstairs I went and searched every where, (but all in vain, and wasn't Mr. A., cross, and...

SiKPParion iieiDS Published,'. Monday and Thursday Evenings. THURSDAY, MARCH 26." It has been arranged that next month a deputation from the Shire of Shepparton, representing various interests, will interview the Premier (Mr W A- Watt) on the subject of reduced railway freights and other matters affecting country intere >ts. Practically, the scope of the deputa tion will be unlimited and it will pro bably open up the whole ques'ion of what is known as "decentralisation." The suggestion for a deputation emanated in the first case from the Goulbum yalley Industries Com pany, which is seeking a reduction in railway freights, both inwards and outwards. There are other matters affecting the district which might well be brou h' under notice. A leaflet on the subject of decentrali sation furnishes a deal of information of a subject that is not as. well understopd as it ought to be.
