THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
THE MAN WHUOLLAUGiH._ .There "re sevetal great divisiohnsin the armyI of mankind, -with, innumer 'alile -sub- ivisions. Ioughly speaking, we may call them the. uihappy, the apathetic,! the cynical, and the coura geous, or ithose who 'dare to face fate with a smile If we may judge by appearances, the first divisionl is:fiar and away the larg est. It is astonishing, as we walk-the streets, ride in the ears, or look from our windows upon the passing crowds, to find so many faces sober, sad or, utterly devoid of life or radiancy. Chance conversations accidentally over heard, even those intended for our own ears, bear out this lugubrious. testi mony. It is a truth which none of us can gainsay, that the ificidents and episodes of -life are not as-a" rule con ducive to hilarity or happiness, if we take thlem" at their face vhlue. Sin gularly 'enough, th& mass *of humanity looks no more deeply into' its enforced experiences, and so forfeits the rich kernel of the hard nut. It is rat...

TREE CUTTING. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
(T thec Editor.) Sir,-While reading the report of the Lilydale Shire- Council's meet ilig in your last issue, I notice the inention of a. letter from the Wongaf Park State School Commit Lee,. draving the council's attrftion to a tree that lhid been cut down alongsideo Ilr Topping's property. To my mind this information seemed funny, and by readiug it one would fancy .the committee was composed of school clildren, with thle. usual tell-tale business. When I went to school .1 was always told to (and did) shun a sneak, Now, sir, I wish to state that some time ago this School Committee wrote to our council asking for permission to re movýe some : tend trees along the Yarra road, which were dangerous. The permission was given to re move them. The committee has done nothing in thi way of mak ing. a start to get them down, but as soon as one is cut down, which has been -a nuisance for a very long time, they begin to squeak. The 'tree in question was cut down :int n legitimate way, and not ...
A COMPLAINT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
(To the Editor.) i ir;--I notice that the engineer has not left enough room on the to ..side of theli road for a; footpatht betwcon "liermnon's and -the school. It s~eems a pity that our" Central -Riding 'membcers do not take a little more trouble to see to the welfare oi-thC- town.. A footpath: along tihis part of the road is very badly re quired, is most of the school chil drcn travcl this portion-of the road. They have to walk on the road, and chance being run over.\ If a footpath .was made on the top side of the road, it would be aL great benefit to Yarra Junction, and would cost only a few pounds. To make a footpath on' the glow side would be very little good, as the scliool children would have .to cross the road twice to get to school. It. is . lpity a place should be spoiled for want of a little forethought.--Yours, etc., S11?ATEPAYER;._. 1arr'i Junction;' 1/12/1. .- .- -
CHARGE IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
CHARGE IT. "Just chalk it downi," the poor man said, when he had bought some bone less bread, and many costly things, his wife and bairns to feed-the most of which they didn't need as much as you need wings. He buys 'the richest things in town, and always says, "Just chalk it down, I'll pay you soon, you bet"; and pay-day evening finds him broke, his hard-earned screw gone uip in smoke and still he is in debt. The. mian who doesn't buy for cash lays In all kinds of costly trash that he could do without; he spends his coin before it's earned, and roars about it when it's burned-is .that your way, old seaut? When comes the day of evil luck the war bag doesn't hold a buck to keep the wolf. away; the 'charge it" plan will work no more at any market, shop or store; no goods unless you pay. The poor man for his money sweats, andt he should pay for what he gets, just when he gets the same; then, when he goes his prunes to buy, and sees how fast the-coppers fly, he'll dodge the spendthrift ...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
f OF RURAL INTEREST (By "RustiozE.") The splendid rain has made it pos sible for many a man on the land to join the ranks of the fellows who laugh-whom it is always good to meet and who are welcome everywhere. Of course, it came too late to save the season from taking place with the worst this country has ever known; but there were benefits in that downpour which are not to be despised and which relieve tension in many ways. Its effect was instantaneous in promoting activity in rural callings and in the many other callings that are directly connected therewith. The break, coming as it did, almost at the same period of the year that former bad droughts have broken, brings hope that there will be a favorable autumn and that it will not be necessary to wait for a whole year for the turn of the tide towards renewed prosperity for the producing interests, which means renewed pros perity for most other of our interests, al5r..

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") According to recent news from over the Murray, the Labour Party in power in New South Wales appears to be dilly-dallying with the totalisator ques tion. A week or two ago we were led to believe that the "Caucus" in New South Wales was solid for the tote, but it now appears that the Government does not force allegiance from its sup porters in this important matter. Each member of the Labor Party is, it seems, free to think for himself in regard to the advisableness of legalising the ma chine. Their minds are not, therefore, caucus-controlled where the tote is con cerned. As before stated, however, there is reason to believe that a majority of the adherents of the Government, in New South Wales favors the machine, and as it can also count upon a fair measure of support from the other side, the Bill, if introduced, should stand a first class chance of becoming law. If the racing public was left to make a choice which would definitely settle the point ther...

THE MAN WHO KEEPS HIS HEAD. (Britain's Motto: "Business as Usual. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
THE MAN WHO KEEPS HIS HEAD. (Britain's Motto: "Business as Usual. There's a man who lights for England, and he'll keep her still atop, He will guard her from dishonor in the market and the shop, He will save her homes from terror on the fields of Daily Bread, He's the man who sticks to business, He's the man who keeps his head. Let the foe who strikes at England hear her wheels of commerce turn, Let the ships that war with England see her factory lurnace burn; For the foe most fears the canons, and his heart most quails with dread When behind the man in khaki is the man who keeps his head. Brand him traitor and assassin, who with miser's coward mood Has his gold locked up in secret and his larders stocked with food, Who has cast adrift his workers, who lies sweating in his bed, And who snarls to hear thelaughter of the man who keeps his head. Let the poor man teach the rich man, for the poor man's constant strife, Is from day to day to seek work, day by day to war with life, And the...

FOR THE COMING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
FOR THE COMING MAN. The better boy you are, the better man you will be. If you do not now get the habit of saving, the chances are that you never will. "I don't want to l" drawn out with a whine when you are asked to do some little task about the farm doesn't sound very encouraging for a good, strong, true, manly future. The hab its of to-day will weave themselves into the life of to-morrow. The world has a thousand places for the cheery-hearted boy, but the sour and selfish young man will wear his shoe soles to the uppers looking for a job, and never find one, Are you collecting a little litrary ot your own? It is a good sign to see a boy love good books. Always pick out something to read that will help you to be a better boy. A sunny face is worth more than much money. Make friends of people who are along in years. They have travelled a long way, and can tell you the best road to a happy life' Keep away from boys that are not clean--clean in their clothes, clean in their lips, and...
MANGEL GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
MANGEL GROWING. Taking it generally, probably no other feeding crop exceeds in value the mangel, not only for cows, but also all kinds of stock. Getting the land ready, so as to be ready for sowinig towards the end of the first month of spring, is recommended, -a little ear lier or later, according to the earliness or lateness of the district. The man gel plant requires a generous allowance of farmyard manure, where such is available, otherwise a mixture per acre of .three ewt. bone- meal, sulphate of potash, and nitrate of soda, in equal parts. An essential elenient-for success in the cultivation- of th'e inangel-crop is fineness of tilth, a condition largely promoted by pre-working up and ex posure to the disintegrating influence of the weather. If the seed bed is rough -and the weather dry at seeding time, the air peneratees the crevices -and keeps the outside husk in which' the true seed of the mangel is envel oped so hard that the tiny shoot cannot break through. Under these co...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 4 December 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (Prom our Special Correspondent.) We are all farmers when it comes to the pinch. Many whose holdings range from a suburban tenement on a lot 20ft. by 50ft. to a sumptuous suite of offices in Collins-street, do not realise it until the country is in the throes of a drought, but the fact has been brought home to all during the past few months. There is none so high or low in the scale who have not come to understand something of the personal interest everyone has in the farm. Consequently the rejoicing when the rain came was general in the widest sense of the term and by no means perfunctory. Of course it came too late to raise .the cloud 'of depression that has settled upon the community as a result of the lean year, but it is recognised that it ameliorates' the position of many of those on the land in some measure at least, and .we are accordingly thankful for the portion of the loaf that came down With those steady, soaking show ers.
