SHOCKING ACCIDENT. MOTOR CYCLE COLLIDES WITH HORSE. TWO MEN BADLY INJURED. Only a few weeks ago reference was made in the columns of "The Dispatch" to the great danger motorists experienced through cattle and horses wandering on the Mortlake-Terang road near Kolora. The occasion referred to was the narrow shave a party of motorists had from colliding with a horse. But on Monday night two motor cyclists, who were double-banked on a machine, were not so for tunate. meeting with terrible in juries. &nbsp; The accident occurred near Mr. George Grinter's place, about five miles from Mortlake. The young men were Richard Klix, South Ecklin, and Stanley Troon, Terang. About 8 o'clock the pair of riders passed two farmers, Messrs Rohan and Somner, and before they had gone any distance the accident occurred. It was due to a horse, no doubt alarmed by the glare of lamp, dashing in front of the cycle. Both riders were thrown heavily to the ground, Troon in particular faring badly, being...

A STORY FROM SCOTLAND. He Didn't Want a Worldly Minister. A story is told of a gardener at the viJlage of Inverkeithing, in Scotland, and r.he Rev. Ralph Erskine, of Dun fermline. The gardener .desired to have the ordinance of baptism admin* tered to his child, hut having differed with his parish minister, whom he ac cused of worldliness, he resolved to solicit the services of an adjoining parish. Reaching the clergyman's manse, ac companied by his wife carrying the baby, he inquired if the minister were e.t home. He was informed by the maid-ser vant that he was fishing, but would be back soon. "He may come back when he likes," said the gardener, "but nag 5shin' min ister will bapteeze ma bairn."

DELAY fS DANGEROUS. Wo all remember tlie pretty story of the little hero who saved his native village in Holland, by stopping with his hand, throughout the whole of a dark, tumultuous night, the gentle trickle of the sea through a leak in th«j dyke. Had he not done so, the wild sea must surely have worn its way through the dyke, and Hooded the village. Similar danger threatens us here. Hundreds of backs are aching, vet people arc neglecting ;hi« warning; and it's so easy to check kidney dis ease if taken in time; but dou't neglect the first warnings. Head how the danger can be averted. Mrs. James Clingan, Dunlop Street. Mortlako, says: "I had bpen suffering for a long time with backache, am! also with a dazzling before tho eyes, and dizziness. I was advised to trv . Doan's Hackache TCidney Pills, and I am thank^dl to say after taking r> fpx doses I got relief, and in a very little time tho pain in my back had gone, arid I felt better in every way. I often take a few doses of thes...

HINTS ON HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
HINTS ON HABIT8. * Get out ol the habit of being poor. Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. Being poor is an extremely hard habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you ere practically incurable. Marriages are made In Heaven. That's why all the brightest and best men are waiting. Tbey don't want to throw themselves away on this side of Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The use of manners is to enable you to do ex actly what you want without giving offence. The worst of all faults is to have none. Beauty is only skin deep. And the heart Is very far from the skin. If, by any chance, you want to be really good, get out of the habit of being beautiful. Try to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve it. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from me. Don't get into ...
AUSTRALIAN SENATE. SPEECH BY HON. W. H. IRVINE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
HBlUmiW""-■ ■■ — "i-irrn — AUSTRALIAN SENATE. SPEECH BY HON. W. H. IRVINE. Speaking at Colac on Tuesday night, the Hon. W. H. Irvine s?id he intended to deal with the subject of the Australian Senate. It was one of the most sinister aspects of Australian politics that a body which did not represent the people of Australia held a strong majority. Because of an inherent defect in the Constitution which required each State should have the same' representation in the Senate, the Senate did not repre sent the whole of the people. The reason why there was equal repre sentation was that the rights of the States under the constitution should be guaranteed to them. With this system of equal representation for the States, the voters in various States had not equal power. The Seuate was supposed to perform the functions of a second chamber, which was to temper or modify the sudden views of the voters in the popular House. That was the general function of a second cham ber, but the Senate had a...
The Sportsman's Ducks. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
The Sportsman's Ducks. Mrs. S., a lady resident in Scotland, while out driving one morning, over took a gentleman friend on his way to enjoy a day's duck-shooting. As she passed, he called out, "I'll send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. I But the ducks were wild indeed that ! day, or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at I night he returned home with only two snipe for his bag. Remembering his promise to Mrs. S., and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, he called his "boy," j and told him to go to the market, buy a pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received an invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks. Won't yon come and see them?" said she. "See them!" said the astonished Mr. B. "Ha-fen't you used them yet? I fear they have been hanging too long." "Oh, no," she replied. "Come and see." I Thereu...
PROPOSED CATHOLIC CHURCH. TO BE ERECTED AT NOORAT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
PROPOSED CATHOLIC CHURCH. TO BE ERECTED AT NOORAT. For some time the Catholic resi dence of Kolora, Glenormiston and Noorat have been considering the question of erecting a church at Noorat. At present some of the outlying farmers have to drive as far as ten miles to the Terang Catholic Church and it has been felt that a church at Noorat would suit the convenience of a large con gregation. The late Father Her bert, who was for many years in charge of the Terang-Mortlake parish, had this church in view, and in his will he left ^500 to be held in trust for the purpose. Other moneys are available, and the paiishioners now feel justified in proceeding with the project. A suitable site is of course the first consideration, and land in the cen tre of the village is now the sub ject of negotiations. It is proposed to build a handsome structure, to cost something like .£3000, and the new church will be "a decided acquisition to the villags. - s

MORTLAKE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
MORTLAKE RACES. ♦ To-day the picturesque and con veniently situated race-course will be the rendezvous of a very large gathering', the occasion being the annual meeting of the Mortlake Racing Club. As there is every prospect of fine weather, the at tendance should constitute a record, due to the fact that a public holi day is being observed in all the principal towns of the Western District. There is no club in the Western District that is so rapidly coming to the fore, which may be attributed to the enterprise of those who control the affairs of the club in making the programme more attractive each year. With another successful meeting to-day, exten sive improvements will in all prob ability be carried out for next year, which will materially assist in bringing the club into line with the more up-to-date courses in this part of the State. It is confidently expected that every race will attract $ood fields, and as the horses represent the very best now racing, the struggle for supre...

WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914
WOMEN AND WORK. 'All women, who have not home du ties to keep them occupied ought to have some outside interests. , The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to- ; •wards humanity are the busy women ^those Who work for their living or J for charity or are occupied with the i best duties of all—motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business Voman with a calling, no matter how humble it Is, has not the time for the despicable pettiness that • goes to make life a burden to all con- ' cerned. _ 1 The woman who works is inevitably ! a woman who is broad in her views. • Her opinions are not riveted to any one spot. Her point of view is mov- ; able. Her experience in the business ' mart gives her sympathy for other wo men workers. She has learned to ac cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have made something out of life.
