DEFENCE OF THE COMMONWEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 May 1914
DEFENCE OF THE COMMON WEALTH. GENERAL lan Hamilton's report on the military forces of the Com monwealth shows that in the matter of defence there is much ,for the .Liberal Ministry to do. When in office the Labor party displayed a praiseworthy desire to lay the foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Aus tralia safe from foreign. attack. But, so much said, it has been frankly pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a condemnation of past busines methods, a plea for wiser adminis tration in the future. The General insists that Australia's army must have a business branch under a comptroller with a Quarter-master General as seccond in command. It would be amongst the duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely, to see that Commonwealth thousands go where need is great est, not necessarily where demand is most urgent. It would have to decentralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co operation between the Defence and other depart...
UNIVERSITY EXTENSION LECTURES. [To the Editor of "The Advertiser."] [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 May 1914
UNIVERSITY EXTENSION LECTURES, --+~-- [To the Editor of "The Advertiser."] Ss;~-Llst year we had a course of six lectures, which were greatly eojoycd, and were highly educational, especially to the younger portion of our popula tion. But, alas ! Sir, the attendances were very medium, and the fienancial strain on the president and secretary severo, Only for the splendid help given by Mr John Sutherland, both in forcing tickete and entertaining the lec turers, the committee would have ended with a deficit. As it was we just scraped throuph, and we are not inclined to repent the experiment. As it costs, roundly, £40 to run the lectures, it moeans that 80 one-shilling tickets must be disposed of before the idea will be taken up. This would hasve to be gua ranteed. Surely, a town that has raised such large sums for all kinds of objects during the twelve months, and can stand picture shows, concerts, cantatas, circuses at the rate of three or four a week, could help in such a conmend able...
MOTOR CYCLISTS' TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 May 1914
fMOTOR CYCLISTS' TOUR. Tocumwal was the magnet across the River Murray to members of the Goul burn Valley.Motor Cyclists' Olub yes. torday. The start from Shepparton was made at 9.80 a.m.; aod Tooumwal was reached at 1 p.m,-a good deal after the estimated thime, for when five miles distant from that township the roads were sticky, caused by the previous night's rain. Ia all eight membors took part in the oting, which proved a very pleasant one, despite the feeact of several falls, and the three diflerenb flights into space-as if he had abandoned his motor for an aeroplane-of one of the nyclists, as the result of his strikling stumps. One of his falls was of a sensational ehoracter, and perilous, but happily he was in no way injured, and like a true sport he got up smiling--and ail was radiant. At Toenmwal Mr Norman Eunson euter tained the tourists at luncheon; and the return home was completed at 6.15 p.m.

I EMPIRE DAY SERVICES. AT THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. The services at St Augnustine's Church of England yesterday were specially of a character fitling in with Empire Day.

St George's cross covered the pulpit; over the carved. wood screen at the entrance to the chancel was the Union Jack, supported on either side by the Australian flag. Decorations of a similar nature were carried out in other directions, and were very effective. Large congregations attended; while at the evening service the bchoir gave a splendid rendering of the anthem "The Sun shell be no rotran 'Phn rontn? ;shn Rn.

GOWANGARDIE. STOCK SELLING REMARKABLY WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 May 1914
GOWANGARDIE. BTOCK BELLING BEMARKABLY WELL. [From Our Own Correspondent]. The weather is favorable for putting in crop at present, Bnd most of the farmers will finish this month. The early sown wheat in a number of pad donks has not germinated very well, owing to insullicient moisture, ana also to the crusting of the surface after the rain did come. They are not at anl regu lar. Close np to 1000 acres are being sown on the Gowangardio Station, and the place wear quite a different aspect. All stook, except horses, are selling remarkably well in this district, It seems inevitable that farmers will have to abandon the rearing of horses, as in many cases a bullock is now worth more than a horse; sheep and cattle are far more profitable. A meeting of residents has been held to have the distriot connected by tele phone from Oosgrove. It is something that is very much needed for the con venience of the public.

The Eohuca olub has already had a la.te of what other clubs importing mon have had to put up saith regarding " professionals going to the highest bid. der."

THE MOST PATIENT PEOPLE M~TT SHOW NiTOYANCE AT TIMES. Ecerybody has their hour of trouble, But people having any irritation of the skin Have many hours of trouble. Nothing so annoying ; nothing so irritating. It's a hard and trying position. Leave it alone, and you can hardly bear it. Relief and cure have come at last. People have put it to the test. Doan's Ointment cures skin disease. People are learning that this is so. Here is a case in point : Mrs T E Draper, Gray-street, Numurkah, EsayE:--"Bome time ago my daughter was very much troubled by that awfully irritating skin disease, Eccema.
