The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 30 October 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'lljtry another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, Por.him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. . Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when nedies, go plant him deep. That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may diBpel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its lots, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a atone above, "Here Ilea A chump who wouldn't advertlM,"

The Main Sydney Road. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 30 October 1914
The Main Sydney Road. A largely attended deputation representative of shires through which the Melbourne-Sydney road runs to Wodonga, waited ou the Minister of Public Woiks recently with a specific request that the road should be nationalised and taken oyer by the Government. It was pointed out that the roads running at right angles, and acting as feed ers to the railway lines, were the most important to the shires. The Sydney road had become mainly a tourist road, much used by motor ists, and therefore of little advan tage to shires. The Roads Board s estimate of the cost of construction of this road was about .£1000 a mile, and to compel the shires many of which had a considerable stretch of road running through their boundaries—to bear their pro portion of the cost of the construc tion and maintenance of the road would place upon thein a burden which they could not afford to carry. If the board insisted that the shires pay their share for the making and upkeep of the road, partic...

Labor Candidate for Benalia. MR. EBENEZER BROWN. V /Owiug to the elections being but : j : , a ^ew weeks away we take the \ opportunity of placiDg before our S leaders some of the views expressed by Mr. L. Brown, the Labor candi jj date, as appended:— I Brown opened his remarks | by stating that he had noticed in [ °ne of the daily papers that Aus 1 tralia was being visited by three I scourges—(1) The war, (2) The I drought, and (3) The Labor party. | As to the first two it was true [■' enough, but as to the last one it ! was not true. Concerning the first . named scourge, Britain was at war J with one of the most tyrannical i nations in the world, and while the • Labor party was against war in all its forms, they had the satisfaction of knowing that Britain had not pro voked war arid was fighting in de fence of her rights If the German people had a franchise such as they enjoyed in Australia there would have been no war. He hoped that, as a result of the present conflict, Germany w...
Electricity or Gas. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 30 October 1914
'•Scriptus" contributes the follow ing to the O. antl.M. "Advertiser1 —For months past the ratepayers of Wangaratta have been watching a,keen' fight in their borough couu cil as,to the merits or demerits of electricity and gas. The same ;old arguments which filled column's of the'Beech.worth papers have been trotted, out again, but finally the advocates of electricity gained; the day by a majority of one vote. That one vote reminds us of the last Federal Parliament, and .looks as thotjgh it may lead to the same results, viz.,.a general dissolution. The agitation has now spread to Benalla, . The preliminary, skirm ish took place at a meeting of the local Tisders' Association, at which some of the members oT the shire were present by invitation. The leading.traders &lt;of the town seemed determined to have an improved light of some description under: mu nicipal control, and whether it: will be electricity or gas remains to be seen.

Mansfield to Tolmie Road. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 30 October 1914
Mansfield to Tolmie Road. The construction of a road from Mansfield railway station to Tolmie was: discussed by the Minister of Public Works on Friday with Mans field councillors, who were intro duced as a deputation by Mr M. K McKenzie. The councillors asked that the road should be constructed under the provision#- of the Main Roads Act. The Tolmie district, they said, contained a vast area of rich land, the bulk of which had been abandoned' by settlers owing to the want of transit facilities. The shire drew only ^48 in rates from the district to be served by the road and the deputation held that it would not be fair that it should have to pay half the cost of con struction, as necessitated by the Act. Mr Calder, chairman of the Roads Board, said that no part of the State was more in need pf roads. The road proposed by the Board would follow the survey for the railway line, which „had been been under consideration some time ago. It would ruu Into the adjoin ing shires of Oxlsy and ...

The Devil Was in Them. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 30 October 1914
The Devil Was in Them. At a negro church in the United States the preacher was an old Ger man minister. When he gave out the hymn, he i.sually gave out two lines at a time, anil the choir would sing them after him. One day, however, he mislaid his spectaclcs as he was a'liout to give out the hymn. "Mine eyes ish dim, I cannot see; r !i •• f mislaid my "specs," you see," he explained. The choir proceeded to sing it. Much annoyed, he called them ti order in the following manner: "I did not say dot vas de hymn; J onlv said my eyes vas dim." The choir immediately sang it, which en exasperated the old man, that he Miis-ted out: "I dink the debit's in you all. Do; vas no hymn to sing at all."

Yet the fact remains thai there are plenty of bachelo. s— we meet them on all hands—inn it niaj be accepted that every single one oi them meant to marry ai one time or another. Why didn't they marry? Ah! that's the rub; they wanted to marry—nay. more, they actually sought to marry, and there were plenty of girls about, girls quite good enough for Uh>iii too— yet there they are, bachelors to the core. How does it come about? Well, there is a type of mail who at a certain age, a marriageable age. meets a girl.
