A ROBBER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
A ROBBER'S STORY. Jacob, Strauss was returning one evening from business with some money for his employer, and on his way had to pass through a dark wood. Suddenly, from behind a clump of bushes a man darted f'r. ward, held a revolver at his head, and in the old familiar way, demanded his money or his life. For a minute poor Jacob was so frightened ho could not speak, but at last he got his breath and said: "Well, if it's like that, I think I'd sooner give up my money." Aud he prepared to do so by putting his hand in his pocket tc take it out. A thought struck him "If I give you all my money," he said, "would you do me a favour in return?" "What favour?" asked his assailant. "Well, you see," said Jacob, "if I go home safe and sound without a penny my master will never believe that I have been attacked and threat. ened with a revolver. He will say I have kept the money for myself. But if you would do me the kindness of firing a shot through my hat 1 could show him that my story is tr...
VICTORIAN RACING "CRYING WOLF." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
VICTORIAN RACING By "Observer." "CRYING V WOLF." playing the Fool With the Public. There is still a certain clas:4 of owner and trainer who believe in play ing the fool with the public, and it is just about the Spring Carnival period in each year, when the racing interest is at its height, and so many thousands more temporarily follow the lure of the King of Sports, that these unscrupulous and designing gentry have full sway. In connec t!c: with the preparations of their sc(v'ral candidates for important en gagemennts they cause to be issued all kinds of "bunkum" bulletins, with the idea of putting the publice oil their charges, and, generally, having atten tion and the limelight switched oft their candidate or candidates. Cer tain sections of the press aid and abet these schemers by giving much pub licity to what they say; and by writ ing a good deal of such stuff with their tongue in check, so to speak, and putting it in more for its news value than its accuracy or truthful ness. ...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 25 October 1924
HOUSEHOLD HINTB, Milk will keep sweet longer in shallow pan than in a jug. Rub a mud-stained umbrella with rag dipped in methylated spirits, apt the staitls will disappear. S=ains maue by medicine and lint~ merit may often be removed with strong ammonia. A milk-bottle should always bE washed on the out3ide before any milk is poured from it. When bamboo furniture becomes dingy, Wash with water that contains a great deal of salt. When iodine, after being applied to the skin, smarts too much, it can be removed with ammonia. A pleasant disinfectant for the sick-room is essence of cinnamon, al lowed to ovaparote in a shallow dish. A teasponful of pulverised alum mixed in a cup of stove polisk will cause it to give a brilliant flinish. Ammonia water, after it is used for washing, may be used to water house plants, as it is a good fertiliser. When cooking greens boil a piece of parsley in with them. This pre vents any disagreeable smelil. When soaking a cauliflower don't add salt to the wa...
Racing Taxation in Tasmania. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924
Racing Taxation in Tasmania. It is an cycopener to mainland racegoors to review the excessive tax imnpositioni which racing in Tasmania has to carry, and at first glance it would appear as if it was the aim of the Government to handicap racing to such an extent as to almost cripple it, and instead of incrcasing 'revenue" (which seems to he about the only reason for which the Tasmanian Go vernment exists), to close up one of its easiest and most prolific producers. .A recent deputation to the Chief Sec :-retary endeavoured to show the Go vernment the "light," and it is be lieved that the Minister just glimpsed it, so there may be hope of some redress in the near future. What we are most afraid of is that they may, follow suit in the mainland States, and that would never do, would it?

SPECIALISED FARMING [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924
SPECIALISED FARMING .BY J.EC.G., A problem which is concerning cco nomists all over the world, and espe cially in America, to-day is that of specialised, as contrasted with diver. sified, farming. At the priesent time many Aus tralian wheat farmers are specialised farmers. They own their farm, and so control their operations that every thing is organised to increase the yield or cheapen the production of wheat. Whether this is wise or not 1; difficult to say offhand. However, it may be interesting to run over one or two arguments for and against specialised farming, and at the end it will be left to decide for yourself which is wisest. Taking the case for the specialised farmer first, we can say that he Economises His Capital. The man who carries on several branches of farming must provide equipment for each branch. Thi,, means increased capital for imple ments and equipment, with the accomi panying heavier depreciation. lie Cheapens Production. Concentrating on one crop, he can gro...
MAIDSTONE DRAINAGE [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924
MAIDSTONE DRAINAGE The intentions of. the Braybrook Shire Council in connection with the drainage of the -Maidstone territory of storm water have been held up for a time owing to it not being clear as to whether the proposed drainage work comes under the^'Act passed in 1923 relating to metropolitan drain age. Under the Act the Metropolitan Board of Works carries out the work of drainage, and levies the cost of such work upon the whole metropoli tan area. however, there seems to be some doubt as to the interpreta tion of a clause in the'. Act, as fol lows: "Main drain" means any drain, creek or watercourse (or portion thereof) within the metropolis de clared to be a main drain pursuant to this Act, whether the same is natural or artificial' or on, ablove or below the surface of the ground, and whether the same is constructed or used or is to be constructed or used for carrying off surface or storm water flowing through two or more municipal districts."

The rest of the side, mrny of whom found the minimum 'scdre an irresistible attraction, did not do too well, and Sunshine's in iflings closed for 84. R. Carrick, open ing batsman, was unlucky not to carry his bat, as he fell tenth wicket.

DEER PARK NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924
DEER PARK NEWS Mr. and Mrs. J. Riley, who have resided at Deer Park for some years, have lately removed to Sunshine. As ardent workers for the welfare of the Church of England, they will be greatly missed by their numerous friends throughout ,the district, and especially so by the children attend ing the local Sunday school. One (lay last week Mr. Chas. Wil son, the 'well-known footballer, had an exciting experience with a large black snake. Whilst riding through Mr. V. Greig's estate, of which he'is the overseer, his attention was sud denly attracted by a rustling nmo\ ment in the long grass. On dismouit ing, he almost stepped on thc deadly reptile, which immediately showed fight. As Mr. Wilson was only in possession of a short riding cane it was necessary to exercise gre-nt cau tion in attacking his dangerous op ponent. After a-' battle which lasted for some time the snake was eventu ally killed, -and Mr. Wilson, who has had a deal of experience of bush life, states that 'it was o...

CHARITIES' BOARD NOT SATISFIED [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924
CHARITIES' BOARD NOT SATISFIED There is, perhaps, some misconcep tioni of the attitude taken up by the Charities Board in its decision not to allow the building of the Footscray Hospital to commence. Considerable criticism has been levelled at the board for its action, and it has never been questioned that the 'criticism was deserved. The Charities Board ought to be a body well equipped for its onerous duties, and it is a wise thing, undoubtedly, that there should be some control machinery in exist ence in regard to hospitals, their establishment and management. Otherwise there might spring up a number of less or more diminutive institutions in our midst, which, from i1h limited means at their disposal, would be capable of providing only a 0medium or makeshift service to the community. This, indeed, would meet a great necessity in the country dis tricts, where hospitals are few and in some cases far between; but an aggregation of small hospitals in the metrolipolitan area, separated...
