OLYMPIA. IN THE ARENA OF SPORT. FOOTBALL. OPENING THE PREMIERSHIP MATCHES SHEPPARTON V MOOROOPNA LAST YEAR'S PREMIERS WIN BY 45 POINTS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
OLYMPIA. IN THE ARENA OF SPORT, FOOTBALL. OPElNING THE PREJIIERSoHIP MATCHES SHEPPARTON V MOOROOPNA -LAST YEAR'S PREMIERS WIN BY 45 POINTS The competition for premiership of the Goulburn Valley Football League for the 1914 season was commenced yesterday under very auspicious weather conditions. At the local reserve Shop parton met Mooroopna and it was no. tionable that from both many of last season's players were missing, but in many instances capable man have been secured to fill the gaps. Among the new men included in the Shepparton team were A M'Coll (Oarlton Juniors), G Taylor, D Morgan (Workers' United), W Coppin (Grahamvale), J Gourlay (Caniambo West), and AI Mahoney (Shepparton Imperial), and the form shown by these fully justified their selection. The attendance was fair con. silering the great counter attractions of coursing and Empire Day celebrations. The ground was in good order, though a trifle hard in places.

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." A few months ago a noble lord whose finances are usually in a state which some folk describe as "shaky,". had occasion to visit a small town in Scotland. Of course his lordship put up at the best hotel, and proceeded to regale himself in lordly fashion, re gardless of expense. Preparatory to the end of his visit the scion of no bility had an interview with the pro prietor, which resulted in that worthy accepting his lordship's cheque, which, however, was dated some six months ahead, the canny Scot having allowed a wide margin of profit as in terest. A fortnight later the ama ed noble man was quietly handed the self same cheque by the factor of his es tate in payment of the sale of some cattle belonging to his lordship. The artful hotel proprietor, having a bro ther in England in the cattle-dealing line, and being rather 'dubious about the nobleman's ability to meet his li abilities, had sent the cheque to his relative with the injunction to obtain its value from...
Putting It Nicely. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
Putting it Nicely. A group of four convicts were over heard the other day chatting about what they were "in for, and each one in turn told his experience. The first one had killed a man, the second had put another man's signa ture to a cheque, while the third one had gone in for a plurality or spouses. The fourth mlan, however, did not seem inclined to make any disclo sures. He was a sanctimonious-look ing man, who, although a professional gambler, was called "parson." "Come, parson, what brought you here?" "I don't care to say," said he. "Out with it! Shoot anybody?" ask ed one. "No, I didn't shoot anyone; but since you would like to know, Igot 'time' because . ,didn't build a church!" Deep s:lence fell upon the group. No such excuse for penal servitude had ever been heard before, and the "parson" was asked to explain. "Well, you see, a congregation raised several hundred pounds to build a church, and handed it over to me to build, and I didn't build it. That's all!"
Full Up. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
* Full Up. The railway carriage was crowded, but a very fat old gentleman who sat by the nwindow calmly ignored the ominous looks of the passengers for 0taking up so much room. A boy selling buns poked his head in at the window, and inquired: "Buns, sir?" The old gentleman was slightly deaf and, .not noticing the buns, thought the boy wanced a seat in the already packed carriage, so be remarked: "Full up. my bcy. No more room inside." A roar of laughter followed his re ply, and the old gentleman innocently wondered at the cause of their mer riment. -

GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
GOOD MANNERS. Have you ever heard any one say, "Oh, if I were rich I'd have things :iicd then'? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nice without being rich as she could? Just as the rich and poor use the same. standard of spelling, as free to one as to the other; so they can, both use the same standard of good breeding 'if they chaose. Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write i for, I, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with his knife, keeps his hat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that custom has decided ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an air-cushion ,.hough there may be nothing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder -ully." That one is poor is no e:c -uce for rough ways; neither does it xenlse a slack table service. It is the :ittle things that make living delight :ul. Mrs. Whitney is...
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 21 May 1914
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to make firm friend ships with their small contemporaries. This should be.a watchful .period for mothers,- for these early friendships have a marked influence on the mind, mofals and manners of a child. Nearly every, character is moulded very largely by early companionship and surroundings. Every mother shohld take care to be her children's companion as far as possible, for she may be quite sure that if they are left to the care of servants, they will at therbest only attain the ideal manners aesd customs of the nursery or ser vants's hall, which are not quite those of the' cultured classes. Children re quire the companionship of little folk of their own age, and a mother should be so much-her childreln'p, friend that she knows,,all their:gtssociates, and is able to nij 'in the bud any acquaint arich " whiclih' she lthills, dndesirable.

TO PREVENT HAIR-lALL. -Hundreds of calves die every year from one cause or another, and very olten the farmer is at a loss to know the causeof death. Practical experi ence counts all the tide. .Mr. J. A, Bird, of Duranbox, -Tweed River, N.S.W., is a dairy farmer who, when a calf dies, wants to know the reason why. He. had some calves die.
