RIVAL METHODS. Teeth Extracted at Fred H. Macartney's [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 July 1914
RIVAL METHODS. Teeth Extracted at Fred H. Macartney's Thieves, who apparently lack the touch of professionalism ot their city brethren, nre causing some annoyance to local business people by their dep redations. The amatourish method of smnshing windows, points to the fact that the perpetrators are by no means exports. Some time ago the window of Mr Chapman, jowoller. was broken in. and goods to the value of £14 abstracted. On Saturday night. Mr Wacartnoy, Dentist, had a similar experience, the same method of purloining goods being omployed. Several vulcanite plates and show material, which the tbievos probably mistook for gold, disappeared. They will be of little value to anyone. Mr Macartney has had the fact im pressed upon him I hat he lias a rival in tho profession whoso methods of extracting toeth are decidedly unpro fessional and certainly dishonorable. Some day our worthy towsman may have the pleasure . ol returning the compliment by extruding tho offen ders molars, and the o...

Kueli person present was provided with a voting card and re quested to register his or her judge ment of the best character, costume and skater. Nearly all the prizes were given to the visiting Warragul skaters. Considerable amusement was given by the antics and tumbling indulged in by Messrs Bliss and Robinson of Moe.

In the street tliey would have been removed as obstructions ; in the hall, the good humor and skill of tho skators averted any serious accident. Master Hill of Warragul, appeared as a schoolboy, who, like Harry Lauder had had his slate ki...

I SYMPATHY FOR OUR SUPERIORS.] Sympathy' for those who are strong er, wealthier, healthier, more inliuen tial, and higher iu authority than our selves, is mot so easily rendered. It does not otteu occur to us to extend the sympathetic hand or word to those whom wo look upon us iu any way our superiors, and yet none need our sympathy more than such as these. The minister is expected to leel l'or and with his parishioners, hut the truth is that the minister needs sympathetic encouragement from them quite as much.
