It niay be one of the so. called accomplishments or it may be one of the useful arts. Whatever it is, give your whole attention to it. U it is photography, mniake a study of it, if philanthropy there are schools whore one can learii to direct what often originates as mere impulse Into wise purpose.

LIBERALS AND THE SENATE PRE ELECTION BALLOT. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914
LIBERALS AND THE SENATE PIRE ELECTION BALLOT, [ConTRu r ,] Members of the Liberal leagues have had no more important duty to die. charge than the approaching selection of six of the seventoen aspirants who are anxious to carry the party colors, should a double dissolution be granted.

Even if some one wing carried its own men to the ox. clueoion of all others, Liberals generally would accept the maindate of this month when the actual election takes plteo, But a vary large, though quite uncer. tain, percentage of the electore is neither Liberal nor Labor, and its Ever doubtful verdict will be determined by the tact and breadth of view displayed when the leagues declare themselves. The pro ecotion poll will decide whether Victoria is to be represented or to be misrepresented in the next Parliament, If members of the leagues realion that, they will give...
