Meeting the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
Meeting the Difficulty. A good story is told o£ a worthy Quaker who lived in a country town. The friend was rich and Ibenevolent. and his means were put in frequent reqgflsltlon for purposes of local char ity or usefulness. The townspople wanted to rebuild their parish church and a committee was appointed to raise funds. It was agreed that the Quaker could not be asked to sub scribe towards an object so contrary to his principles: but then, on the other hand. so true a friend to the town might take it amiss if he were not at least consulted on a matter of such general interest. So one of their number went and explained to him their project the old church was to be removed; and such- and such steps taken towards the construction cf a now one. "Theo wast right," said the .Quak. er. "in supposing that my rlinciples would not allow me to assist in bull.l. Ino a church. But didst thee not say something about pulling down a church? Thee mayst put my name down for a hundred pounds to pull ...
STRANGE HONEYMOONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
STRANGE HONEYMOONS. Surely one of the strangest was that of all American couple who, In June of last year, set out from Now York harbor on a honeymoon trip to the Bermuda Islands In a tiny "cockle. shell" boat some 12ft. long by 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perlonce was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edgar, who were married In Peking In the Legation chapel, on the day preceding that on whilch the Boxer riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few weeks of their married life prisoners in the In vested city, witnessing many of the lorrors of the rebellion, and going In dally fear of assassination. Another couple on the Continent, immediately after the marriage knot was tied, started off by balloon for England. Leaving Paris at four o'clock In tihe afternoon, they man aged to land across the Chan nel the following morning, after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds. Then alln adventurous pair of Swiss lovers, both keen mountaineers, chose the summit of Mo...
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. It has been often asserted by thole who know that scarcely one' royal lady In Europe Is really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dresses too old for their years, and some of the oldd" garb themselves in a fashion that is too young. The Empress of Germany is . the bcst-dressed woman on a European throne. bne does not buy her dresses In Paris, but In Berlin, London and Vienna. Counting every Item, the Kalserln spends about £2000 a year on dress. The Queen of Holland. Is said to be tile worst-dressed sove• reign. In spite of this, she- manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The formler spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wllhelmlna Is accused of showing very bad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. IIowever, she has some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only e..plaoys Dutch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch modiste? The costumes an...

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here Is a recipe-buy wrecks. A bench boat which cost about £200 tc 'build was, after It had been run down off Yarmouth; sold for £2, and even that was obtained with dlmficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat whIich has once met with misfortune. Still a fliner bargain for somebody was a schlooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Const. He obtained from it nearly eighty tonl: of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tonls of iron, fittings, rope, etc.. 'besides a large quantity of.copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shinlle. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally cons...

Easter Holidays. Casterton Celebra tions. There wLas as usual anll exodus of residents who went away on Friday morning to spend else where tmh few days respite from toil that Is afforded by the annual Easter vacation. There were still left in the town those who were glad to use the few days' respite for rest, or for attention to domestic affairs that under ordin ary circumstances had of neces sity, to be held over. The town was, therefore, not altogether de serted, though to the casual ob server it appeared so; for the streets were empty of the ordinary crowd of passers to and fro, and it was easy for a stranger to think that Casterton was a deserted vil lage-on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, also on Easter Monday in the later part of the day, when the crowd had dispersed, most to Merino bent, others In search of recreation that was in accord with their several inclinations. It was a quiet, though joyous crowd that spent away in all di rections, still joyous though per haps not so q...
OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
:.OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleeo underneath a tree, No grove of whslapering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where. the, old oaks gather, Serene and good and strong, And they would not sigh and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white heoard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For those young fllbbertigibbets A-rhymIng their hours away, .They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and Ills soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes Its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There Is no pence to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars 'to be fought ...

Ophthalmic Optics. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
Ophthalmcl Optics. Eye-strain does not necessarily mean impaired or poor vision. In the not of seeing' we expend a certain amount of nervous energy, of which we are uncon soious when our eyes are normal. If we experience a sensation' of discomfort in observing closely a small object, there is a strain present-there is an overtax on your muscles; the eyes water, feel sandy, headaches result. You can easily stop this with glasses. Let Mr S. B. Abotomey, the well known optician, examino.your eyes. He will tell you their true con diton, and if glasses are necessary he will supply you with what is required. Mr Abotomey will visit Casterton on Thursday and Friday, April 23 and 24, and maybe consulted at the Casterton Hotel. Coleraine will be vislted on Sat urday and Sunday, April 25 and 26 at Koroite Inn, end Hamilton on Monday and Tuesday, April 27 and 28, at Victoria Hotel.
