A Trip to Beach Forest [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
IA Trip to Beach Fores: A local resident who has just returned from Wangerrip, Beach Forest, writes as follows: Although the outlook on arrival was not cheerful-nothing but im mense ridges, and gullies-it is a great place for a holiday, and we have had numerous excursions. From Crowe's. (the railway termi nus) the ltrack up to here is corduroy and nearly all uphill, the best grade being obtained by skirting the top of the hills in most cases. The majority of the settlers are dairying, but the season has not been a good one owing to the lack of rain in December and Jan. The season commences late, all the cows being turned out from now until September. It is really-in the summer that dairying is profit able here-there is splendid grass when it has been dried up our way. A good many send their cream from Layer's Hill to Colac, some getting it out on pack horses. They do not milk at all in the winter. A good many suppliers to the fac tory deliver their milk on sledges drawn by one horse...

AGRICULTURE. PIGS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
-0 PIGS ON THE FARM. - The breeding and management € swine, Mr. A. W. Roisinson, of "ii3'a :iava, South Australia, \srites should constitute .one of the 1)o1 important agricultural intfcrnts o the farm. None but the best btced should be allowed on the farms, fo there is no class of farm stock -lhs pays better as between indiffertn and good breeds than pigs. Th very first requisite, however, ii keeping any improved breeds 'fron which money is to be made, is th: best of feeding from the time the! are horn till they ate slaughtered You can neither breed nor keep pig profitably by starving. In stoc; raising it holds true that what cost: little to acquire brings little a sale. Many years ago there was 1 great demand for everything big ii the way of pork, big sides 'of oacon big hams, etc., bLe now there is t decided distaste to large joints, an this appears to be growing stronge year by year. Bearing this in mind. I would recommend the breeding o the Berkshire,. which possesses won derfu...
POST OFFICE COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
POST OFFICE COMEDY. High tragedy turned to comedy and comedy to farce at a poet office in West London recently-r. Shortly before five o'clock a young man entered. In his hand was an open letter, delicately perfumed, on faintly tinted paper. The subtle fragrance of the letter drew the attention of the cus tomners, who noted also the somewhat agitated angle of his hat and a certain wihlness in his eyes. .Makinig swiftly for the telegraph counter he scribbled on forln after form, crushing these in succession and throwing them aside. Finally, with an air of sombre satisfaction, he threw the last form across the counter accompan ied by a sixpenny piece. The girl behind the counter picked up the form and readl it quickly. "Another halfpenny, please." "Nonsense," the young man said. "Only twelve words." "Thirteen," replied the clerk. "This -pointing with her pencil-'"should be two." Unconscious of the interest •taken by. soome half-dozen, customers, the young sian took up the telegram. "Yo...
UNIQUE CHRISTMAS PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
UNIGUE CHRISTMAS.-PUDDING. ,elo' of the most remarkable Chlist mas puddings .on record was the one made by the late Lord Wolseloy and a brother offcerto celebrate the Christ mas spent in the Crimea. Those are the details: A box of 'figs did for fruit. Suet was unobtainable, so they-used rancid grease. There was .no.flour to bo had, so they made some by ponud jng up ship's biscuit' with a pestle and mortar. The latter articles' were also. improvised-a Russian rousid shot and a piece of an exploded shell. When the mess was properly muixod it was" tied in a towel and placed to boil An order to hurry to the trenches cut short this operation, however, and thefate of the pudding hung for a moment in doubt. Either it had to be wasted or eaten half cooked. It was eaten, and 'Wols eley had to retire sometime later from the trenches under doctor's orders. -.Take my advioc: Never ask ques tions.' ]3o content to mnak a fool of yourself once or ti'ice, but don't ask questions.

CONCRETE RAILWAY TIES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
CONCRETE RAILWAY TIES. Elastic concrete ties of great strength holding bolts and nails better than wood arc claimed as a new German railway product. Ties of iron and steel have been osed to some extent, for many years, but are much more rigid than wood, and otherwise less satisfactory, and the reinforced concrete ties hither to tried have proved disappointing. The new concrete is made from a mixture of asbestos fibres and cement. Whcn one sort of woman knows that a man depends upon her for propelling guidance, she does not pine for kisses. At a ball a man, as a walte began. rather impudently addr?ossed a young lady: "Lily of the Valley. will j'oc dance with me?" "Thank you," she said, "I toil not, neither do I spin." Men loathe tragedy-secretly Don't get tragic with the very nicest men even, however much .they .love yel. Never have hysterics. Pretend to be rather a limited idiot, and they'll love you blindly.-"The Prince's Shadow," by, Mrs. Saunders.
AIR SCOUTING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 8 May 1914
AIR SCOUTING. In .actual war, both in Tripoli and in. the Bilkans, aviation accidents were cohsciously, few, and despite the fant that 'inids weri generally high in'Tripoli,? and the season of the yehr. 'and the weather extremely nn fai'orable in the Balkans. It is a mutter of/considerable phychologocial interest to note that the danger from an' enemy's lire so stimulates vigilance that nerves are tense with exertion amd the mind is relieved from dwelting upon the ordinairy dangers of .keepialg an aeroplane on an even keel rnd meeting every gust. In other words, scouting in actual-warfare seems to be a splandid cure for nervousness. The aviator must fly with the assurance of a bird, and he does so for fear ot he enemy's rie fire. A striking in stace of this pshchological pheninenolon is the fate of Dr. Jules Constantin. a French aviator inl the Bulgarian ser vioe. Ho was mortally wounded, in tile air during a flight above Tclhitkl ja, but managed toland safely -,.:y to die before an...

SHE WAS AFRAID. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
SHE WAS AFRAID. Young William Evergreen aind Maria Knewsome were walking along a lonely country road one fineo evening. William was carrying a large tub on his head and a live pig in a sack on his back, when suddenly Maria exclaimed: "Oi be afear'd, Bill, Oi be afear'd!" ".Whaat be'st afear'd on, th' great stoopud, we'en Oi be long wid 'ee?" was Bill's reassuring response. "Oi be afear'd you'll glt a kissinn' an' a coortin' of me, Oi he " replied the tremulous maiden. "'Ow can Oi got a kissin' an' coort-l in' o' ye ween Oi a got this groat tub on ma 'aend an' .t'pig on ma back ?" reasoned William. - With true maiden simplicity, MariA replied : "C'u'dn't you put that pig on the groun' and turn that tub atop on 'ili, an' set dawn on 't an' pull me side of ye, ef we wus amid to '.t, eh?" And the' hint was taken.
CURIOUS OPTICAL ILLUSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
CURIOUS OPTICAL ILLUSIONS. A curious optical illusion is some times soon as a motor-car passes, the wheels of the moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop, or oven turn backward. In an investigation reported to the Royal Society, Pro fessor A. Mallock mounted a card board diso with spokes on a flywheel, and when this was revolved so rapidly that the spokes could not be seen'or easily followed by the eye, and a slight mechanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac Lion of a second. Shocks having this effect were given in 'many ways, such as in the oorctact of the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that the appearances depend on the. speed of the rotation, the brightness of illumination, and to some degree on the nature of the shock. The ex planation was offered that the shook produces a monmentry.loss or variation of sensation. This v...
