LITTLE THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 3 March 1914
sing; may; brighteni up somue.. careworn~ fellow's day:y a little. sheer, a little bit ter sassing, may change, his skies from gold to sombre gray. A little praise may send feet blithely tripping, that otherwise would drag the long day through; a little help, when somq poor cuss is slipping, may start him right and bring success in view. A little roar when vicious things afe brewing may spoil the ,brew, and oil up Virtue's wings ; a little kick when statesmen are pursuing false gods may bring them 'round to better things. A little senso i mnay make us seem a fountain of wis dom if you keep your tongue on straight; a little debt may soon boeome a mountain, and crush you down be neath its galling weight. . The little things make life a i oy or nuisance; if vou ianore this fact, wheni you are gray,: ou'l realise you were ou e a blooming goose since you let the best of .all things get away. - Walt Mason. -

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914
V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal skies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy conmDination between 'business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the pea...

"GO I MUST" CALL OF THE ANTARCTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914
"60i I MUST" CALL OF- THE ANTARCTIC. (By Sir Ernest- Shackleton, in -"The Dally "-Mail.") "Yonder the long horizon lies And there, by night and day, The old ships draw to. port again, And the young ships sail away; And cbme I may, but go I must, And if men ask me why, You can lay the blame on the. sun-and stars,. And the white road and: the; sky." I have often been asked; what can one see in: the cold, inhospitable regions of the Antarctic? And,. confronted try a bald question such, as. that, it is hard to give an: answer. The .mere fact that one. feels what Keats calls " The dearth of human words, the roughness: of moral speech," shows that there must be an intangible something that draws. one back to the wild wastes: of the Antarctic. And it is there, if those of us that know it could only set it down in so many words. Even, since we were last there we have thought and dreamed of the wide stretches, of snow and ice, the: silence of those. places where men never trod before, the wo...

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914
BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING C4USHAT "That is one of the most wonderful things in London," said a country visi tor, as he stood near the dell at the end of the Serpentine and watched a man feeding, real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Daily Telegraph") did the pigeons feed about his feet, but presently one of the boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suffering itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. -The countryman stared in undisguised astonishment. He knew that out ink his own plough lands, where the winter-proud wheat is just- now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and in .the leafless beech woods through which you can see for a quarter of a mile, against the twenty yards that would limit the view in. summer, these same pigeons are. thee most cautious of wild fowl. You_ need the cunning of a Red Indian to get near them. in the day time, the patience of a Sioux to way ...
