BILLIARDS. [By Baulk-Line.] It is pleasing to note the progress that is being made in connection with the McGrath Tournam.ent. The cushions on the table, which were a source of trouble to players, have been much improved and are being further improved by the treatment that they are being sub jected to. The handicaps met with general approval, and satisfaction was ex pressed on all sides. The matter of handicapping is one. requiring a great deal of careful consideration, and attention to the merits of the individuals. It is safe to say that to pick the winner by lookiog at the handicaps would be pure luck rather than judgment or calcula tion.

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 19 August 1914

Geese with Shoes On. ROUGH ROADS MAKE THEM FOOTSORE. Tlie largest goose dealer in the world is William H. tfirke, of Maus lield, Illinois. Late in the summer of each year Mr. Firke's buyer spends several months in the hills of Ken tucky and Tennessee, where goose raising is an important industry. There the geese are purchased, some here, some there, but scarcely ever in lots of more than a hundred. Some- • times the geese are assembled in places remote from- a railroad, and; must be driven miles before they can be loaded. The driving is compara tively easy, but before the long march over the rough and rugged road is started, the geese must be shod. Rough roads will' make even a goose foot sore. Shoeing geese is a simple mat- • ter to the goose-raiser. The birds' are driven over soft tar or pitchj and then on to beds of fine sand. The sand and tar form a soothing mixture,.. ; wliich ailords- great protection to the feet on the long marches.

The climate here is too rigorous, and following medical advice Miss Bennett has sought a more genial altitude. During her period of teaching at Erica (some two years) Miss Bennett has proved herself a most painstaking and skilful teacher. She has thoroughly won the love and esteem of the school children, and as Friday was her last day amongst them they decided not to part with their popular teacher without some little memento. The presentation, which took the form of ladies' dressing-table requisites, was made on behalf of the scholars by Master Tom Morgan, who in a neat, little speech assured Miss Bennett of their hearty appreciation of the careful way in which she had in structed them, and also of the many kindnesses she had shown.
