LETTER WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

LETTER WRITING. Children usually complain about writing letters, and very few enjoy it or do it well; in fact, they would enjoy it if they could do it well. But they do not think so, and find it a real task when the necessity comes. A lady, who is known as a good penwoman and an easy writer, says that she owes this mostly to early training. Her fat.er insisted oa frequent -letters be ing written, and that these must be cor. rect in spelling, grammar and pen. manship. "Many a time she inwardly rebellca at recopying letters again and again, but she realises now how much help it has been to her. So take cour age girls, and go at it bravely. Mrs. Cottager: Good gracious, you don't mean to tell me you've got a pianner? Mrs. Kitchener: I should rather think so! And you should jest 'ear the tone of it; it's for all the world like the Salvation Army band. If you wus to shut. your eyes you wouldn't kn)w emn apart. Mrs. Cottager: You don't say so? But l didn't know as you could ?lay. Mrs. Kit...

THE LUCERNE-SOWING SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

THE LUCERNE-SOWING -SEASON. "Every 'wheatgrower- should ha'.p lucerne on his farm if he has a suit able pioce of land at all," said a",welIl known farmer not- lnog ago; flit in saying that h?e must not be regarded as suggesting that every farmer should :grow lucerne hay for the metropolitan --market, for a little study of the sta tistics of the crop shows that it does 'not roquire a very, large increase in production to depress prices to the' unprofitable point. ncreae in the area under lueurne has been achieved in the past toen or fifteen years by a series of advances and retreats. Be tween the years 1908 and 1910, for instance, there was a steady increase from- 43,500 -acres of -lucerne to 69,000 acres, the high prices offering for hay during 1908 no.doubt inducing grow ers to extend. The increased pro -duotion in 1910, however, aided by a good season, reduced prices, and thus affected the sowings in 1911 and 1912, for in the latter year the area fell to 63,000 acres. As values im...

POST OFFICE COMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914

POST OFFICE COMEDY. High tragedy turned to comedy and comedy to ,farce at a..post oflice in WVest London recently. 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 tomers, who noted also the somewhat agitated angle of his hat and a certain wildness in his eyes. Making swiftly for the telegraph counter he scribbled on form after form, crushing them in succession and throwing them aside. Finally, with an air of sombre satisfaction, he throw the last form across the counter accompan ied by a sixpenny piece. The girl behind the counter picked up the form and read 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 some half-dozen customers,. the young man took up the telegram. "You might"...
