FOOTBALL. SWAN HILL ASSOCIATION. Faugh-a-Ballagh (6.13) v. Imperial (4.7). [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

FOOTBALL, SWAN HILL ASSOCIATION. Faugh-a-Ballagh (648) v. Imperial (4.7). BY " ORWo RU." In the presence of a fair number of spectators Faugha-Ballagh defeated the Imperial team yesterday at the show grounds. The game proved to be a most interesting one throughout, 'and the spectators had nothingto complain of as regards their admission monev. Both clubs nad a strong combination, and the scores were by no means a true reflex of the play, although the better team -won, their 'play in the air and in the ruck standing them well. The Imperial team was very fast aiid'clever at handball. The game was the best that has been played this season, and the most excit ing. Roper acted as central umpire, and E. Boys and J. Williams as boundary umpires. The goal umpires were Messrs. C. Picken arid C. JBeasy. The game yesterday, as on Saturday last, was agaim late in starting, and it is about time the ruling body made a move in regard to this most important matter. Faughs opened an attack on the so...

HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

:HABIT. j Habit in a person is at first' like a spider's Web; if. neglected. it lbe comes a thread of twiiie; next, a cord of rope; finally, a cable - then who can break it? There are habits contracted by bad example, or many other ways, before we have judgment to discern their approaches, or be cause the eye of reason is laid asleep. Coleridge, one of the finest poets of his time, battled for twenty years before he could emancipate him self from his tyrant, opium. He hired a man to watch him day and night, and keep him by force from touching the pernicious drug. He formed re solution after resolution. Yet, during all the best years of his life, he wast ed his substance and his health, ne glected his family, lived accursed be cause he had no resolution to ab stain. He would even lay plans to cheat the man whom he had paid to keep the drug from him. His case is an extreme one, yet, how often we see men bound so firmly by the chain of strong drink, that they make shipwreck of themselv...

CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

CHARACTER. There is no instinct implanted in the breast of man so universally ac. tive as the love of character. In this respect, the prince on his throne, the judge on his bench, the merchant in his counting-house, are alike. Touch them in whatever pertains to their worldly interest-their business or their wealth-and your interference, though it may indeed be rebuked, will yet be borne with comparative indif ference. Tamper with them even in the matter of life, trifle with their health, expose them to disease, and still you inflict not a deadly wound; but let the pestiferous breath of slander breathe upon their fair fame. you touch their happiness in its most vital part. To a man of virtuous sensibilities and refined feelings, there is nothing in life that can be placed :in. competi tion with it. It is the chain that holds him to society, and the talis man that preserves his rank. Cast a mildew upon this, and you convert his moments of pleasure into sea sons of anxiety and burning ...

LIVE AND LET LIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

LIVE AND LET LIVE. At a travelling circus ±hany years ago a clever and pretty trick of horsemanship used to be performed. A horse was led into the ring carry ing on his back what.looked like an old tar barrel, with which he trotted at first slowly round. Presently ha began to quicken his pace; and as he did, so, one end of the barrel was pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel fell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in. a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on the horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he ei'cked. The horse at once broke into a swift gallop, and the man pulled off the great coat, which he threw dowhi, showing that he had on another one underenath. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then a fourth. He seemed to have enough coats on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap parently he did not care in the least what bec...

A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

A MAN'S LIFE. A man's life is full of crosses He comes into the world without hii will; and the trip betweenl the tw o is. exceedingly rocky. The rule of the contraries is. one of the impoirt ant features.of the trip. When he is little the big girls kiss hiim, but when he is grown up - the little girls kiss him. If he is poor he is a bad manager; if .heis rich he is dishonest. if he needs credit he can't get It; if he 1is proipeerous everyone wants to lend him tsomething. - If he s in politics it1s for7 bhat he ccan get out of it, if he' s not interested in politics he is destitute of puiblic spirit. If he doesn t give t charity he is a sing cuss, if he does it is for shows tf Is actively religious he is a 1hypocrite, if he takes no interest in religion he is a hardened sinner. If he shows affection he is a soft specimen if he seems to care for no one he is cold-blooded. If he dies young there was a great future ahead of him; if he lives to an old age he has missed his calling. Five...

THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

THE. USE OF THE RAISIN. The dried fruits, suchl as raisins, dates; figs, currants, etc., are not only delicious- to the taste, 'but are also among the most nutritive of foods. In the past these fruits have been too little known outside of rich fruit cakes and mincemeat; consequently their wholesomeness has not been adequately appreciated. They may be used to advantage in many other ways. Fruit Bread.-Fruit bread is becom ing very popular. When making bread, reserve a part of the dough, to which add some well-washed currants or seeded raisins, a little sugar and butter, and raise and bake the same as the plain bread. Currant Loaf.-Take two cupfuls of bread dough, one egg, half a, cupful of sugar, half a teaspoonful of salt, two tablespoonfuls of butter, one tea spoonful of flavoring or spice, one rounded teaspoonful of baking-powder and one cupful of .well-flour currants.

AGRICULTURAL EXPERTS. SCOPE FOR FIELD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 28 May 1914

AGRICULTURAL EXPERTS. SCOPB FOR FIELD WORK. The experts of the department of Agriculture are in the main competent. authorities on the various subjects which they expound. They are not, however, afforded the opportunity which they should have to display the initiative necessary to the adequate porformaknce of 'their duties. Their work' is (says the "Argus") circumscribed by departmdntal rules and regulations, and is cohtequently of less value to the farming community than it would otherwise be. No body of inen can be expected to attain the best results in a' service which compels them to work with tied hands. In such a case, amnbi tion is stilled, and ceases to be 'an in centive to greater effort. If Gbvifrn-i ment expei'ts are considered niecessariy, as they, nio doubt, are, they -cani huly; be made wholly effective by widdning: their sphere of operations.
