Holy Trinity Sunday School Picnic. The aunual picnic cf Holy Trinity Sunday School was held ou Wednesday last-, 22nd iust, in a paddock adjoiuing Hie town which was kindly given for the occasion by Mr P. Murphy. A large num ber of children promptly assembled about 10.30 a.m. at the Parish Hail whence they were conveyed to the ground in a van which was kindly lent by Mr Cunningham, and by other vehicles, which were hired or supplied by. ihe courtesy of friends. The inclemency of the weather prevented a great nnny of the parents and friends, who usually attend this yearly outing, from being present, but the wiutry conditions were not strong enough to damp the spirits of the children. The luncheon, which was excel lentlv catered for by Mr Sutton aud Mrs Sharp, was done ample justice to by the children, whose appetites seemed to be sharpened by the keen wiuds aud showers. The afternoon was so pleasantly spent in games aud sports that the lime seemed all too short when tea was announced....

Encourage Local Industry. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

Encourage Local Industry. (To the Editor.) Sir,—Mr W. H. Ha wley's squeal on behalf of the Rochester Orchestra touches the traders of the town on a raw spot. Instead of looking to the interest of their own growing town and district, Bendigo is the hu& for many people who ought to know better, and eveuthe landlords of the town send most of their tenants hard disbursements in the shape of wages, rent, etc., to Bendigo. Even the families of prominent members of the so-called Rochester Traders' Association, it is alleged, are uot without sin in this respect. There is too much Bendigo alto gether, and those who are diverting trade from the town because they cannot make their own urines for goods and work as well' .t^^ne length of time they wish to Jafcevto pay their accounts, will find ihe curse of traitordom to their town and district will one day come home to roosv. After all some cf our most prominent traders have no reason to complain, for in sending away tlieir cash to Bendi...

The Weather. THE DRY SPELL BROKEN [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

The Weather. the- dry spell broken A welcome termination has comt to the,prolouged dry, period, and there are general rejoicings thereat except perhaps in the ease of some irrigation settlers to whom a drought affords a good opportunity of disposing of product not procur able elsewhere during the trying time.. In (he early hours of Tues day morning a steady rain set in, and the registration at 9 a.m. was 77 points, which was ..increased to 90 points before the day terminated. Subsequent showers brought the total up to 121 points since that time This isin addition to 18 points that fell last week, but which was of little practical use beyond laying the dust. The late rain will pene trate the soil and have the effect of starting the crops, most of which are now sown, and the condition of the gfouud lent itself to a very satisfactory seeding. The rain will also start the weeds on the fallow and allow farmers an opportunity of destroying them. The grass also will be given agool start be...

The ' proceedings of our youthful citizen soldiers is every day becom iug a feature that attracts more public attention, aud the press gives liberal notices of the various camps, reviews and mimic battles by means of which our incipient warriors are initiated into the practices which would obtain in actual military service. Of course our first line of defence is on the sea, and while the English flag "that braved a thous and years the battle and the breeze" reigns supreme on the ocean we have little fear of an invasion. But we must recognise the fact that other countries, Germauy notably, is challenging that supremacy, and that the mother country does not, comparatively speaking, maintain that superiority which she enjoyed formerly. Moreover » if England was engageJ in a death grapple she would require most of her naval force ■ to defend the heart of the Empire, and thus ...

Curious Uses of Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

Curious Uses of Paper. It is interesting fo note that paper can now be made from prac tically every member of the vege table family, and nearly everything can be made from paper. Amongst other articles made from com pressed paper can be mentioned wheels, rails, cannons, horseshoes, polishes for gems, bicycles, and asphalted tubes for gas or electric, wires. With wood pulp and zinc, sulphate there has been an attempt in Germany to make artificial bricks for paviug. After subjecting them to a pressure of two thousand tons per cubic centimetre, ihey are baked for forty-eight hours. In similar fashion are made roofing tiks and water pipes. Telegraph poles made of rolled sheets of paper are hollow, lighter than wood, and resist the weather well. The Japa nese make paper clothing, window frames, lanterns, umbrellas, hand kerchiefs, artificial leather, etc. fu Germany paper barrels, vases, and milk bottles are being produced. Straw hats may now be bought in which there is 110 straw. They a...

Now, Sir, if "Settler" had con tributed his membership fee and taken as much interest in the affairs of the society as he pretends, and attended the annua! meeting he would have heard tha whole mat ter fully explained by members of the sub committee rresent, but for his enlightenment I might point out that Mr Doherty never offered land for sale till asked to do so by the sub-committee, as they con sidered the price of the other free...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. Be good and you'll be happy—and probably poor. A well-bred child never reproves its parents in public. Give some men an inch of rope and they'll rope you in. To make things come your way it is necessary to go after them. Blessed is the man who doesn't, give offence. Also he's unusual. Some married men make ideal com panions—away from home. Flirtation is the best game for two that has ever been invented. There is no woman who does not' believe herself an exception to a rule. Marriage means a constant obliter ation of self, a constant "give up." Most people are like eggs—too full of themselves to hold anything else. A woman resents hearing her hus band abused. It is usurping her pri vilege. Delusions are like girls; we don't care to hug them unless they are at tractive. Love is the only thing in the world, and women who can't get it have tea instead. It is no use bluffing unless you have something to bluff with; and then you have no need to. Happy indeed is the man...

Concert at Bamawm. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914

Concert at Bamawm, A fine audience assembled in the Batnawm Methodist Church on Wednesday eight, when the Sun day school anuiversary was held. Mr Stanley Humphrey occupied the chair, and the programme through out was much enjoyed. The hymn, All Hail the Power of Jesu'.s Name was sups, and a prayer offered. Miss Corie Nankivell played a solo on the orgau wiih taste and preci sion, and Mr Airmail's songs, Home, Boys Home, and TheDeath less Army, went with a swing. Miss Gertie Helmore s contribu tions, And a Little Child Shall Lead Them and Will the Angels Let Me Play ? were vociferously encored, and as response to the ir resistible :demands for an encore to the first number this talented little singer gave A Child's Prayer sweetly.
