ONE WASTED HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 7 April 1904
ONE WASTED HOUR. It, would scarcely be believed how much those people gain at the end of a year who are accustomed to work up all the little odd ends and rem nants of leisure; who value time even more than money; and who are con vinced that minutes are no more to be wasted than pence. Nay, he who findB he has wasted a shilling, may by diligence, hope to recover it again.;) but neither repentance nor industry can ever bring back one wasted hour. ul, therefore, perhaps f. more liquid >rra jf laxative food may be preferred s being easier o! digestion, and, at 11 events, equally ^nutritious. Of these, gruel is tfcre most popular, and perhaps is the best ol all, and it is comparatively ®asy to. make, as a pound oi oatmeal in a gallon of cold r/ater is all that is required in the way of ingredients. The mixture, however, requires constant stirring over a fire until it boils, after which it may be placed on the hob to sim mer until it thickens; but if it is al lowed to scorch the whole ...
HINTS ABOUT MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 7 April 1904
HINTS ABOUT MILKING. Have the stable clean, and have the cow clean, or you can't get clean milkr Xime and whitewash for walla and posts is a eood thing. Land plaster is a good absorbent in the stable. After a little manipulation of the teats and udder, the milk is ready to "come down." Then is the time, to take it and do not delay. Milk as rapidly as possible without irritating or worrying the cow. No definite rule can be given as to how the teats should be handled in milking, as cows differ and hands dif fer so much; but be sure of one thing, please a cow if possible. There should always be a friendly feeling between the cow and the milk er, and milkers should not be changed if it can be avoided. A cow wiil not "give down" her znilk to a milker she hates or is afraid of, and what she does give will be defi cient in butter fat. Always milk a cow in the same manner, at about the same time and speed. Any change will irritate and tend to excite her. Always milk in the game order, and a...

I CORRESPONDENCE. MOE SWAMP LEASES. To the Editor of the Nctos. Sir-I notice in the last issue of the Times that the editor of that journal has arrogated to himself that, he has scored a triumph in being first in the field to advocate the seduction in the tenure of the leases held by the Swamp settlers from six to three years, in order to enable them to either sell or mortgage their holdings. Forsooth, what next? I would not trouble you with a^ reply tprhis fabricatoin PPV 1 that he is oecomihg ^nofBhous "for his misstatements of late. The first sug gestion in connection with the above movement appeared in the .columns of the "Ace" from its correspondent in Moe. "AGE" CORRESPONDENT. Moe, 9th ApriL

THOSPDALE. Mr F. Dickinson's store was broken into on Tuesday night, entrance beirig gained by a window at the rear of the building. I under stand that, so far, nothing has been missed. Another attempt is to be taade at nextcoun meeting to procure a road through what is kuowu an " Hooper's" property, which would connect the Uirboo Road with If'Donald's Track.

He called upon an aged friend who had once occupied the of fice of chief magistrate of tne city, and this was how he noted the fact in his ' diary: "Re-visited with melancholy re flections the scenes of my youth, and called among others on old Provost B. and his brother, still tottering on the verge of the grave." J Little did the writer of these words imagine who was to read them T The diary was faithfully printed after the reverend doctor's death, and a copy found its way into the aged Provost s hands. He read the words with a smile, «nd added this caustic com ment: "And here I am, Dr McFarlane, : still tottering awa' yet, long after you're in your grave!"

Fire If You Dare. GOOD USB OF A FLAG. In Havana there was one evening a great row in the streets, and a man was killed. Everyone ran away except an Englishman, who did not see why he should run off, but stopped to see what he could do for the wounded man. The city was then, as it often was, under martial law, and in a few minutes a party of soldiers came up and walked the Englishman ofT. He was tried then and there by a sort of drum-head court martial, and con demned to be shot the next morning at eight o'clock. He managed to get the news convey ed to the English consul, and at 7.46 o'clock the next morning the consul appeared in his coach ana four, cocked hat and sword, all his orders, etc. The shooting party were drawn out, and the prisoner was there too. The consul walked up to the officer com manding the party, and demanded the life of his countryman. "Very sorry," said the officer, "but I must carry out my orders." And he showed the warrant signed by the go Ve,TVeil," said the ...

AH I knew about it was that a deaths somewhere necessitated their removal from my town, and as they had no money, they were compelled to sell their effects to get enough to move tin.

The Ladies' Column. ALWAYS IN A HURRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 14 April 1904
| The Ladies' Column. ALWAYS IN A HURBY. | i know a little maiden who is always in a hurry; She races through her breakfast to be in time for school; She scribbles at her desk in a hasty sort of flurry And comes home in a breathless ' whirl that fills the'vestibule. She hurries through her studying,. sh& hurries through her .sewing, Like an engine at high pressure, a*, if leisure were a crime; She's always in a scramble, no matter where she's going, And yet-would you believe it?-she never is on time. It seems a contradiction, until you. know the reason; But I'm sure you'll think it's sim ple, as I do when I state That she never has been known to be gin a thing in season And she's always in a hurry because she starts too late.

THE LOCAL ANANIAS. To the Editor of the News. Sir-Your scathing remarks in your leading article of last issue, having referred to the unreliable and biassed reports which appear from time to.time in the columns of your contemporary, ; must make him feel small in the eyes of the public of this district His I hot-potcn. and school-boy style of1 ' chronicling public meetings ought to make him blush in the eyes of any ; up-to-date journalist. Mr. Editor, I have occasion, myself, to complain of 1 his biassed - mutilation of several speeches. I have made in connection with certain local public bodies in which I am connected. The young man has certainly missed bis avocation, and I am certain he would make a better "laundry-man" than a journalist, for I am ready to admit that I have seen some excellent work he has done in that direction, having been present ia the editorial sanctum, cum-dining, coin-bed rooms, when ho used to at tend to this part of his duty f"r the members of bis staff.
