O.. LAC. RECATTA. RECORD ATTENDANCE. IA?GOAL CREWS MELT WITH MISIAPFS. The annual Colac regatta was held on the lake Thuasday in ideal holiday weather. The popularity of Colac on New Year's Day was amply proved yesterday by the large number of ho lilay makers who arrived in the town oy special trains from Melbourne, Bal larat,' Beech Forest and.. Warrnam bool. Last year's record of 10,000 was easily eclipsed. The rowing was marred by the rough state of the water. In the first event-Junior Four--the three com peting crews 'wre swamped. The committee held a meeting, and chang ed the course. The situation, however, waei not improved, as several of: the crews again met with a similar fate. :Warrnambool was represented in live events, but misfortune came their w'sy in all livbe vents, and thereby greatly interfered with their chance of gaining: honors. Fault was found in the starting arrangements. There were numerous expressions of dissatis faction amongst the. visiting crews. M.r. Ivan ...

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. -In-the treatment-of weeds, IL lkem phatically a case of "a stitch in time saves nine." They should be preven ted from seeding, whenever possible, and when buying seedsfor sowing, get :hem pure, so as to 'be 'certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds often grow more vigorously than useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade .or crowd, or par tially choke the se6dlings of the de sired crop. Weeas, naturally, make use of the same food as the cultivated plants among which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am. aunt of nourishment; and they rob the succeeding crop as welL On arabic soil, weeds are trespassers that should .e prosecuted with the utmost rigor oi the law. Weeds having large leaf sur tace draw from the soil. and give oft tlhrough.the leaves a large amount ot water, and thereby rob the surround ing plants. Many botanists consider this waste of moisture the most sert ious injury done by the weeds,

Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
Honest John. George. Carter, a very. Just man, carrying on business in a .small vil lage, foundfit necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of John, his assistant, and; as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity of deal ing fairly with his'customers, left him with these words: "Well, John, if ever. you are in doubt, quote a text. to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." T He had not been gone long before, a lady walked into' the shop and ask ed to see some shawls. -John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better, asked to see others. '"John, ready as ever, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, stated the price to be five shillings. Still she .was not 'satisfied, so, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she would like tha...
THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
THE MAN IN THE MOON. By A.LS.. Is it possible that the Man in thf bc Moon has descended from the posi- 1b Lion of a fully-credited reality to at -;v of a mere figure of speech; but even to as such he is of great use to us, es- t: pecially when we wish to assert our ,gnorance of anything. When we ai state that we know no more tnan the a Mian in the Moon we are attributing pc the densest ignorance to that some- :a what mythical personage; we at least it credit him with being an agnostic of cc the purest water. He could scarcely of be even that if he did not exist at alJ. By our common language we are w perpetuating a remarkable article of or old folk-lore. Science and the tele- a scope give us their own interpretation th of the features that we discern on the fr moon's surface, but in popular belief hi there was once really a man there, w whatever may now have become of es him. He was banished thither for th the crime of gathering sticks on Sun- th day. st If we refer to the Book of N...

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 3 January 1914
ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS Before building a house most per sons recogie'e the' necessity of hav ing - ericite plan of tle structure. Comparativez,; few peL;'e. however, realise the desirability of planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do with making a home as the former. In a short article it is Impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, If considered in their proper relations to the situation of the building and, the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re suits. The location ;:f walks and drives should be: ma?de a mat'er of convenience. Neither the waixe nor the drives are ornamental in them selves; hence they should not be more numerous than the uses of the daily life call for. Curved waits and drives are often more pleasing than straight ones, especially where tle grounds are large. The curves, however, should be easy and' natural, not short and kinky. The home grounds may be compared with a picture in which ...
