Kordmbukka v. Poowong. There was a good attomlauco ao this match, but the display of ths local team was very disappointing at tompared with their play of the pre vious Saturday. Certainly thoy wore up against a stronger team, but this should not have made such a differ ence, especially in the second half. The 'Burra have a good team, but thoy will liavo to alter their tactics and show a bit more system if thoy wish to win the premiership. In the first half of the gamo Poowong were defending most of the time, and the homo team put on 7.11 toPoowong's throe goals. The third quarter was well contested, but in tho final term Poowong showed that they are a team to be reckoned with. They had the 'Burra defending most of the time. The final scores were ::— K'burra 7 g«:als 11 b?hincls 53pts Poowong 4 „ 2 „ 30 „ For the winnors Tilson, Mtrcsr and Dick Williams played as well as ever, but most tf tl o others appeared to bo having a dn.y " off."

Not for Grown-Ups. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

Not for Grown-Ups. He is one of those men who 'by the exercise of great economy and the seizing oi every opportunity have amassed a considerable fortune in a most unpromising district, and he is building himself a bungalow—buiiding it with his own hands, that is. The other day, he was discussing the ar rangements of the place with me, and I asked where he proposed to put the bath. . The question seemed to astonish him. , . "Bath?" he repeated. We re not thinking of having a bath. You see, it's not as if we* had any children. There's only me and my wife."

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. The poetry of life gathers around its commencement and its close, just as the poet finds inspiration in the rising or setting sun. Infancy has its charm of innocence, youth has its charm of energy and hope, age has Us charm of pathos. But around mid dle life there seems to gather no halo of poetry. The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour. The burden and heat of the day are not favorable to music. The poet who will celebrate the open brow of childhood or the furrowed cheek of age will find no inspiration Ui the anxious eye and busy front of middle life. The maiden, who moves fancy free among the meadows; anf the tired face and eyes of tranquil resignation, bordered by silver hair, may alike provoke his muse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or matron? The whole atmosphere of such lives lacks the poetic qual ity. Their existence is practical, pro saic, dull. We find it hard to invest lUch lives with poetry. But there are...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his left eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during the siege of Bastja, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the iscr vice of the Njcni-aguan Republic, Wth these accounts are false. lie J.iy3. that it was in the year 17S0, when' the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added liira to the list of one-eyel warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury 011 the Spanish Cplonie;;, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches ajid other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, which Hows into the Gulf of Mexico. TI13 Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the...

San Remo. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

San Bemo. Amid cries of " You are not game to move, it," Cr Howinan at the last meeting of the Phillip Island and Woolamai Shire council withdrew the motion of which he had given notice to-make Kiletimla the council's regular place of meeting and to have Shire otlices built there. The council had before it a letter from the llev. H. E Potter, stating that under the council's constitution it could not discuss such a matter in the .absence • f a mandate from the ratepayers, and suggesting that the ratepayers should be allowed to vote on a refer endum to settle it at the August elections. If this suggestion is acted 141011 it is not likely that tho rate payers will countenance a large ex penditure on a scheme, the only ad vantage of which is to save the mainland councillors a four and a half mile drive from Anderson to San Kemo, when the money is urgently needed for roads. !
