What He Caught. The weather was rather cold, the air was very still, and the patient angler was getting tired. He had not had a bite all day. There was a rustle in the long grass behind him, and a voice disturbed the stillness of the afternoon. "How's sport?" "A bit slow." There was a pause, while the gently* flowing water carried flo&t and line slowly down the stream. "Haven't caught anything, have you?" "No." "HumJWWhat'll you tell your wile when yongfept back?" * '"Dunno.-^flaven't thought ottt any* thing yefc." "Say, how would you like to be photographed with a fish six feet long?" "0b?

WILLOWGROVE. Quite a flutter of excitement was caused at Willowgrove last Friday night, 11th inst., the ball of the season being given by the bachelors, and, no doubt, they deserve great praise for the manner in which they carried oat their plans. The hall was most tastefully decorated with ferns, flowers, and -flags. On entering the hall I was greatly struck with the appèaraQce of a motto " Welcome to the bachelors' ball"—the handy-work of the young ladies. As the music struck up under the direction of the worthy M.C, (Mr Cadder») about forty couples graced the floor, and stepped to the delightful music supplied by. Sir L. and Miss J. Orowe, of Traralgon. Dancing was kiipt merrily going till 12 o'clock, when the M.C. requested the gentlemen to take their partners to the supper-room, tables being laid out in the old hall, on entering which one was taken-abaclc at the display, the,room being beautifully decorated and tables well-supplied with the good things Or Williams expressed tha...
CINDERELLA'S SLIPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 24 May 1906
CINDERELLA-aSLIPPfiR. "Everyone has heard the story of Cinderella's slipper," said a noted phll&lt; ologlst recently, "but the world errs in calling It a glass one. I'll tell you how the error occurred:— "The Cinderella story Is of French origin; It is very old, and in the orig inal version the slipper of the young girl -Is said to have been of 'vaJr,' a fur. became confused with a slipped 'verre.' The two words have the s¡ sound, but where one means/fur, i other means glass.

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM ODE CORRESPONDENTS. YARRAGON. There was very little business at the Yarragôn police court last Thursday, the only case of importance being one in which Constable Ryan proceeded against Michael Dwyer, of West Tar win, for setting fire ta a quantity of scrub and thereby endangering the property of an adjoining land-owner named Worth. Constable Noble con ducted the prosecution, and Mr. Davine defeuded the accused. The bench considered the case proved, and inflicted a fine of £5, with £2 8s. costs, or six weeks imprisonment. At the request of Mr. Davine the fine was increased to £5 Is., so as to enable the defendant to appeal if he wished fco do With regard to the foregoing it might be meationed that within the past 18 months Constable Ryan has been instrumental in securing three convictions on charges of illegally starting bush fires, the combined fines amounting to £55 Is., viz., two of £25 each and one of £5 1. He has thus done good work towards stamping out a da...

NEWSPAPERS EDUCATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 24 May 1906
NEWSPAPERS EDUCATE. A professor at a certain univvrjslty was recently discoursing to his class on an important current topic. To his surprise and disgust only, two or three members of his class knew anything of the subject, these. being the only ones who had read of'it in the news papers. Further inquiry resulted in the dis covery that, while the students were more or less well read in ancient his tory, hardly any of them could talk in telligently on important affairs of the day. s The professor at once ordered his classes to read the newspapers, an nouncing his opinion that they should have at least as good a knowledge of current events as of the events of the remote past. "Newspapers," he re marked, "print history in the making." And most people will agree with him that a man, however deeply read, who is ignorant of events "and questions ot the day is not property educated. "What's the matter, Mr. Finn?'' ask ed Mrs. Starvem. "The way you sip your soup and stare up at the ceiling ...
