Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
Toot Your Own Horn. - A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth, the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. ^fhe "mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and &lt;svatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, arir). dores i>nc7 pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and (squeaks; pigs- squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.

How to Injure Your Town. Run it clown to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see - merit in any; scheme unless y,ou are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money - in it. . Let your tongue wag idly about ' your neighbors without knowing the facts.

How to Help Your Town.: Talk about it. Write about it. Buy all you can in it. Remember thai, i>y assisting tradespeople, you help the place along.

TANGIL STH. TENNIS CLUB. OFFICIAL OPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
TANGIL STH. TENNIS CLUB. OFFICIAL OPENING. The official opening of the above was held on Wednesday, 26th ult. Had it been ordered, the weather could not have been more favour able, and as a result, there was a large assemblage (numbering about 130 persons). The whole of the surrounding districts were repre sented, prominent among the as semblage being visitors from Mor well, Trafalgar, Willow Grove and Moe. Cr Beck, who performed the opening ceremony, referred to the manner in which the land had been acquired by the club from the council, and spoke in laudatory terms of the energetic way in which the members had worked to put the court and its surroundings in order.

Amidst loud cheering, he declared the court open for play. j. Mrs Beck thereupon " cut the ribbons," which was the signal for another...
TORPEDO OR BATTLESHIP. WHICH WILL WIN? [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 9 September 1914
TORPEDO OR BATTLESHIP. , WHICH WILL WIN? "The Fire-Ship" is picturesquely de scribed by Mr. David Hanny , as the rude, but in favorable circumstances the most formidable, ancestor of the torpedo—not of the torpedo boat, he reminds us, but of the weapon itself. ;; His concluding words are suggestive. They refer to the question, will the battleship of the modern world be able ., to guard herself from the torpedo as her predecessor did from the fire-ship? • The question has a big interest tor,,. us in; the present war. The Germans, it is known, are relying extensively on their torpedoes. "Many affirm that she will not," says Mr. Hanny, "when what she has to fear is the torpedo launched by smaller craft oh or;below the surface . of the water. : Some of us ;find it hard to believe that any man-of-war which dare not openly confront an enemy and conquer in an exchange of blows can ever dominate the sea. Victory has never so far gone to those&lt; who fight by evasion, by concealment...
