AROUND THE SHOPS. CHRISTMAS TRADE AND TRADERS. WHERE TO PURCHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

Around the Shops. CHRISTMAS TRADE AND TRADERS. Where to Purchase. At the present time the public mind I is agitated as to what to buy for the I Christmas season and where to Ret what they require. As n possible help to intending buyers, and as a com pliment to our advertisers, we have paid a visit to their shops and relate below something of the displays we saw.

A queer ChristiBas Evo! Thoro was but little or the spirit of Christmas in Oakden that morning. l'aine was try ing to explain away a thousand shifty mysteries and answer my pointed questions. "You'll help me—temporarily, of course." ho pleaded at last. "You'd not have asked me for my confidences if you didn't mean to come to my assistance. I needn't say I shall repay every ha'penny." ".Mr. Paine," 1 SRid, "I love your daughter. If I marry her 1 shall, of course, see that my father-in-law's cred:t is bolstered up In every possible way. I'm a rich man, and I don't think we need worry much about your cre ditors." "Monica likes you—likes you very much—in fact, is very fond of you," he stuttered, not meeting mv eyes. He glanced at me slyly and added: "I had thought of approaching Sir Ed ward " "Bellairs! lie hasn't a penny," I scoffed. "He's coming in to tea this after noon," he rejoined.

OFFER OF HELP DECLINED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 December 1915

OFFER OF HELP DECLINED. It concerns an Irish regiment Into which had been enlisted a few men from London. "The regiment was pretty badly cut up In fighting over No Man's Land, the spaco between the trenches of the Allies and the Germans at Ypres. After the recall had sounded for both sides many men were left dead and dying on No Man's Land. "In the midst of bodies one was seen to stir. He lifted his head cau tiously and spoke to the form nearest him which showed signs of life. "'Are yez hurt?' he whispered. " 'I'm a bit done up,' whispered an Englishman. 'Where did they get you?' "'In both me legs; I can't move thiin at all.' " 'All right,' muttered the English man. 'Wait until it darkens up a bit and tlio beggars quit sniping at us. I'll roll over to you. Put your arms around my neck and I'll crawl back to the trenches with you.' "'Yez will not!' snapped the Irish man. 'It's another dirty English trick. I'll git shot in me back, and you, you beggar, '11 be after gltting the Victori...

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

III. I've read over what I've written. To mo now it's very clear that I had playeil the villain. To me, then, that wasn't clear. I didn't realise that I played upon her love for her villain of a father. I didn't realise that we two, Slungo Paine and I, the villains of the piece, had plotted to force her to give up the man she loved and mar ry a man she didn't, because he'd beer, knave and fool and 1 demanded my price. Then I only knew that Bellairs and I were rivals. He despised me. I was a cad in his eyes, a nobody, a counter jumper. But if ho wero penniless, so had I been. I'd started with no ad vantages. I'd worked and won. I'd beaten him. Why should I help my acquaintance, Mungo Paine? I scarcely knew him, and heartily despised him. Why should I squander thousands on bol stering up a fool who had como finan cially to grief? That I should help my future father in-law was proper and natural. I remember that evening—Mungo's forced gaiety, his heavy witticisms, the shudder that rtan...

MEN OF MARK. Cr. John Johnston, J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

MEN OF MARK. Cr. John Johnston, J.P. Oi'nuict, unassuming disposition, eouricous and straightforward, Cr 1 Johns'oii, president of the Korong Shire, has wor a high plarc in the esteem of his colleagues at the coun cil table and the ratepayers who on each occasion of his election have returned him unopposed. The casual observer can ipiickly discern in Cr Johnston a man of honor and' integrity, but so unobtrusive is lie in lii.s manner that a closer acquaint ance is needed to fully realise the sterling stuff of which he is made. He is generally broadiiiinded in liis outlook and endeavors to weigh the scales of justice evenly, putting aside all personal feeling and scorn ins: the petty things which smaller minds,with a >how of virtue, are sometimes wont to resort to in order that effect might he given to their selfish wishes.

The Man on the Land. Malting Barley. Requirements of the Maltster. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 6 January 1916

The Man on the Land.l Malting Barley. Rcc/uircmcnis of ths Maltster. I'.very farmer who has grown barley loi- malting purposes knows that there is a .standard of quality below which tiie grain is useless to the maltster. At the s;imo time it is sale to say that those who have already creeled plants and estab lishments (or malting are too anxious to obtain the right class of local grain to find fault with samples submitted to them without ample justification. The process of malting is depen dent upon germination, and the prime and absolute necessity in bar ley for this purpose is that its vitality should not in any way be impaired. It is this lact that the grower must keep most prominently before him when growing the crop, and right up to the time of delivery it is the risk of damage in this connection that the farmer chiefly runs—apart, ot course, Irom those common to most crops, such as lire, flood, etc. Harvosting the Crop.

Notwithstanding that farmers are engaged in garnering the .greatest harvest 011 record, which can hardly permit of a moment's respite, the business people a;'t able to report a turnover in excess of form er years. This is due to two fact ors, 011c of which is but a corolary to the other, the very distinct and rapid expansion of Korong Vale as a centre and the better service which an increasing trade enables the business man to give to the people. There were 110 public sports of any kind but a dance held in the Mechanics' hall on New Year's eve, under the auspices of the A .N. A., was an enjoyable affair.
