CORRESPONDENCE. THE CLUNES POUND. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. THE OLUNES POUND. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-The Clunrs gazetted pound is too fir out. It nppenrs'to be miles from the Post Office. On 20th inst. I placed my cow on the common (I stable her lit night). Two hours afterwards the cow was pounded by my neighbor. You may nsk who is my neighbor ? (Please read Luke X., 27). I hold no brie! for the cow. She is a Cluncs cow, I only pnrohased hoi- last month. Unfortunately I did not get a reference with tho cow. If she is bidly behaved she must be punished. But why should the coun cil punish me by making me walk up the lulls to the far away pound. Wo want a pound near the township. Several Clunos people ngree with me. I hope the council " in their charity" ?will have a pound gazetted much nearer to the Post Office -Yours,, etc. EDWIN RYAN. Servioo Street, 21st May, 1914.
THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the Seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. Ail these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that Beed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation 1B performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to producc weakly plants, sub ject to disease, arid alBO to produce cereals that "lodge," a great source of loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an Important factor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed should be used. Grouchy. Parent: No/sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you!' Suitor: But your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: Th.at, s...

GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
GOOD MANNERS. Have you over heard any one say, "Oh, if I were rich I'd have things nice then"? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nice without bein£ 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 choose. Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo-, man who woilld 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 1b the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an air-cushion though there may be notKing in it; it ease3 the jolt of this world wonder fully." That one is poor is no ex cuse for rough ways; neither does it .ixc.uso a slack table service. It Is the Mttle. things that make living delight 'ul. Mrs. Whitney is...
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 22 May 1914
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to make firm friend ships with their smali contemporaries. This should be a watchful period for mothers, for these early friendships have a marked influence on the mind, morals and manners of a child. Nearly every character is moulded very largely by early companionship and surroundings. Every mother should 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 ihe best onty attain the ideal manners and 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 children's friend that she knows all their associates, and is able to nip in the bud any acquaint ance which she thinks undesirable. The mother who, to save herself fa tigue, lets her children seek compan ions among their s...

OUB MILITARY FORCES. QUESTION OF ADMINISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 May 1914
OUB MILITARY TORCES. j QUESTION OP ADMINISTRA- | TION. 1 To the politician the report on the military forces of the Commonwealth is opecially interesting, because it stresses the enormoui importance of administration. This most of us aro disposed to underrate; our tendency is to judgo Ministers almost wholly by the bills they pass. In like way, those who givo but casual attention to the matter are tempted to base their estimate of the .officienoy ot an army, almost entirely, . on the number, physique, courage and discipline of its men. General . Hamilton reminds us that " the part the administrative officer plays in .war is fully an vital and as patriotic as that played by his brother in arms, the fighter." This is a lesson which Groat Britain should have learnt in the Crimea, to which she sent her troops with swords that would not cut, with boots that would not hold together, with inadequate supplies of food largely unwholesome, in part uneatable. It was a lesson sho had not master...

SPORTING NOTES. FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 May 1914
SPORTING NOTES. (BY. "PAKEHA.") FOOTBALL. I hear that the proposal to form a sonior football club in Clnnes is likaly to fall through, owing to a number of playors wanting members' tiokets on tho "nod" and expenses paid. I do not think there are three players in Olunes now whoso play is good enough to' command expenses and free ticket. It is a wonder to tho writer that players who value their services so much^io not offer them to one of the Balla.iat clubs to prove their worth. Bight through tho states thera is too much paying expenses, etc., and eventually it will kill the game. So long as the interest is sustained and the gate receipts ore large, the game will continue in public favor; but once the intsrest wanes it will declino. The game was just as interesting ?when players volunteered their ser vices, and it will come to that again some day. Essendon and -South Molbourno head the list. It will be a mighty " go" when they meet. Essendon are fast on a dry day. They have not exper...

The King Insulted. SUFFRAGETTES AT MATIJSTEE. Outrageous behavior has marked the campaign by militant suffragettes during the past few days. On Friday insults were hurled at the King and Queen, who attended a matinee performance of The Silver King at His Majesty's Theatre, Lon don. Two-thirds of the audience con sisted of women, and among the number were several suffragpttes. During the performance the suffra gettes attempted to deliver violent harangues. One, -who had chained herself to a seat in tho stalls, addres sing King George, shouted out, "You Czar !" The chain was broken and she was removed from the theatre, struggling all the tjme. Another woman was chained to an adjoining seat. She shrioked until a gag was inserted in her mouth.
