THE HUNGARIAN GENTLEMAN FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

THE HUNGARIAN tiGETLEMAN' FARMER. Most Contented Individual in the World. Writing on "The Hungarian Gen tleman Farmer," in the "' Windsor," Baroness Orczy says : "He is the most contented indivi dual in the world, in spite of the fact, or because he knows absolutely nothing of what is going on around him. He does just read his news paper which arrives daily from Ru da-Pesth, and has vague ideas that all Austrians are thieves and scoun drels, and that therefore a union with Austria is necessarily fatal to Hungary ; but, as a matter of fact, the political situation of his country does not interest him in the least ; it does not affect the richness of his wheat or the weight of his maize heads. "A keen sportsman, he is unham pered by any game laws. In Hun gary no one is allowed to carry a gun unless he owns so much land, and the owner of land-and thelefore of game-naturally makes his own laws for its preservation. "His chief characteristic is hospi tality, almost barbaric in its lavish...

Auroral Glories. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

Auroral Glories. (By a Banker.) , Amongst all the varied glories of nature, perhaps one of the most striking and magnificent is a sun rise as seen in the pure and rari .fied air of the summit of a lofty mountain. Half an hour before the first rays of the great luminary become visible the peaks and domes :.of the snow-capped range of moun tains on the Western horizon have gradually come into view; the pure whiteness ot the eternal snows ever augmenting and brightening with the open day, soon a roseate hue of extreme beatity mantling the virgin snow in its auroral radiance; ever growing deeper and yet deeper, unitil- the mountains are on fire in a splendent blaze of lovely car mine. Beneath, the valleys are shrouded by a pall of heavy cloud, which rolls on in every varying aspect; now great dark masses piled up by the winds against a neighbouring mountain, again to be broken up by impact with some upreared rocky barrier; or now fields of vaporous undefined mist which scarce veils from...

Change of Troops. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

Change of Troops. The sound of band music and the tramp of troops announced another change of citizens' train ing troops at the Heads on Wed nes day. The merry swing of re turning young soldiers, as with pack on back and rifle swung, is in contradistinction with the determined set visage of duty bent on entering camp. The two weeks of duty has done them good, in health as well as in physique and discipline. Early rising and exer cise, together with Queenscliff's bracing sea air, had left them with bronzed visage and healthiness they would not have possessed had not enforced training been the order. It has been stated that the training of Victoria's young soldiers is costly. That is not so when con sidered in the light of equipment. The young man who is trained is a considerable asset in time of ne cessity. The incoming troops soon settled down to duty, and one of the features of the present canip is that an old Scottish regiment is represented, and to the interest of young folk, kil...

Sunday Corner. Growing Through Struggle. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

Sunday Corner. Growing Through Struggle. The nominal Christian life that costs nothing is not worthy of the name. There must be self-re straint, discipline, severe school ing. There must be struggle, the agonising effort. If you are to reach the goal and win the prize, you must put every energy of your life into the race. There must be sacrifice of indolence and self-will and personal ease. Too much pampering spoils many an earnest Christian. Every noble life is a struggle from beginning to end. Only those who resist and fight and overcome are successful in iife. This is true in every sphere--in business, in study, in professional life, and in spiritual life. Are we resisting sin, overcoming tempta tiou, living victoriously in trial ? If not, we are not living worthily. ,,.. . . .. . .

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

CRAINS OF COLD. rThe tdote wit one has the more oerI ginality one finds among men. It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easier to throw a bomb shell a mile than a feather-even with artillery. Honest good humour is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and the laughter abundant. While many women abuse the love that is lavished upon them, the ave, rage woman lives upon a kind look, a tender tone, and an occasional caress, and repays these with the devotion of a lifetime, . Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul; : ethusiasm is the lever by which men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and become capable of goodness and benevolence which, but for it, would be quite impossible. Aim at perfection in everything, " though in most things it is unattain. able; for those who aim at it, and per severe, will come much nearer to. it than those whose laziness and despon dency make them gi...

HOW WIVES ARE WON. QUEER WAYS OF COURTING. "The way of a man with a maid" is always a thing worth noting ;also the various methods of courtship which prevail in different parts of the world. According to the nationality of your best girl your courtship system should be organised. In Roumania once every; year, a fair of marriageable girls is held. The girl, with her relations, gets into a waggonf which also contains her dowry-linen, furnitured and household tlatters-afd all set off for the fair. When they arrive, the gfrls are drawn up in one line and the men in another, with their parehts behind them. Then, it a young mat likes, the look of any particular girl he steps out of the line, goes up to her and en ters into talk with her, while his parents and her parents compare notes as to their possessions and their dircumstances in life. If all is found satisfactory, the couple are married thed and there, and the bride is driven away by her husband to her new. home. The custom in Russi...

WITHIN THE CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

WITHIN THE CAMP. (By B42). I have just been perusing an article written by B41. Turning over the straw in my tent which I with others have just taken pos session of, there I found the Queenscliff Sentinel, in which ap peared the article, 'Within the Camp.' However it came that it should be left for my special delec tation is a mystery, for it was about the social part of the camp of my predecessors I am deeply interested in. But there. it was, and I am glad. I am a young member of the old Scottish and am proud of our chappies. I can't say that I know very much about camps; but I mean to be a credit to my regiment, when I hope to be promoted and be able to direct - become a pard, .like Shakespeare used"to talk about, but without that fierceness of demeanor which defined the warrior of the iold days. I have just been having a lengthy talk with a neighbour of our camp. He lives very close to to our lines and is deeply interested in the 'Scotties,' as he ,calls us. The old man, I found,...

Concert and Display. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

Concert and Display. The concert held by the Girls' Club on Thursday proved an un qualified success. The hall was full, not a seat vacant, and the programme was carried out in first class style. The Scottish Regiment Band paraded the streets prior to the concert, and by the time of commencing a large gathering had asssembled. Many of the new troops had been given a little respite, and, of course, were pleased to attend the concert. Besides items arranged locally, . several performers from Geelong were present, and altogether a splendid programme had been arranged. This, however, was departed from slightly, but the items substituted were good. Alter the overture by the band, which was appreciated, the Junior Girls made their appearance in dumb-bells, also in bar-bells a little later. The club swinging of Miss Frances Priddle and of Miss Laura Wayth was exceedingly good, and if these young ladies are in com petition in Ballarat it may safely be said they will give good account of them...

WAR ITEMS. HOW LONDON SETTLED DOWN AFTER THE FIRST EXCITE MENT. We talk about the immobility of the East, the changelessness of the leopard's spots, of the ,Ethiopian's skin, the immutability of the Jap., the patience of the almond-eyed Chinese, the stoicism of the Spar tans, the rocky constancy of the Red Indian. But since the world was has there ever been a race with the stable equilibrium of the Britons ? I defy you at this moment to go around London by any means you choose and obtain ocular proof that England is at war with Ger many, except it be in the war specials shouted by the newsboys. On Friday and Saturday there was a dislocation of life of London. There were more people in the streets, there was less. business transacted. Nine-tenths of our thoughts were engrossed in the pos sibilities of the war, ten-tenths of the people were killing the Kaiser with their mouths, and a few en joyed themselves singing the National Anthem at Buckingham Palace or in Trafalgar Square.

THE DAIRY PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 3 October 1914

THE DAIRY --T PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. Cleanliness has a market value. This is particularly true where cleanliness contributes to the quality of the food product. It has always been recognised that cleanliness should have a most important place in the production of miLe, but strange to say, until recently, the number of quarts of milk and its chemical composition were the only things on which prices have been set. No price was set on cleanliness. The results of clean methods are the banishment of dirt and the banish ment of bacteria from milk. As soon as the certified milla movement be gan, prices immediately jumped' for certified milk from 4d. to 6d., then to 7Jid. and now to 10d. per quart. The chief reason for this was the standard for bacteria which was set at 10,000 c.c. by the Certified Milk Commission. In certified milk we have only one standard for cleanli ness and one price. There are no de grees of excellence provided and no prices corresponding to the same. When one contempl...
