THE WOMEN WE WANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 31 May 1906
THE WOMEN WE WANT. j It is easy enough to be pleasant i When life flows by like a song; But the man -worth while is one who wiU smile When everything goes quite wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, And it always comes with the years, And the smile that is worth the praises of earth Is the smile that shines through tears. It is easy enough to be prudent When nothing tempts you to stray. When without or within no vice or sin Is luring your soul away. But it's only a negative virtue Until it is tried by the fire, And the life that is worth the honor of earth Is the one that resists desire. i By the cynic, the sad, the fallen, Who had no strength for the strife. The world's highway is cumbered to day. They make up the items of life. But the virtue that conquers passion, Ai*d the sorrow that hides In a smile, It is these that are worth the homage of earth, For we find them but oace in a while.

WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMAN FROM MAN'S STANDPOINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 31 May 1906
WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMAN FROM MAN'S STAND POINT, A man can keep another person's secret better than tils own; a woman, on the contrary, keeps her secret, though she tells all others. "1 like women," said a clear-headed man of the world, "they are so finish ed." They fluiah society, manners, language. Form and cereinony aw their realm. They embellish trifles. It is a misfortune for a woman never to be loved, but it Is a humiliation to be loved no more. Women like brave men exceedingly, but audacious men still more.

THE CANDIDATE—CONTINUING. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 31 May 1906
The Candidate—coxtikuixq. Gentlemen, the grand old Gippsland pioneer is fast dying out, aud another taking his place, and ' still no roads; or, râtiîer/ the existing roads are so execrable that to call tliefrt4 such is a misnomer. The pioneev in Gippsland bas had to literally hew his home out of the primeval forest, and a Government that is prepared to adopt the magnanamous policy towards the embryo settler referred to in Mr, Mackey's speech, • cannot refuse to i extend a helping hand- to those whom, in spite of bad roads and almost insurmountable, difficulties, have con tributed more than a fair share of the revenue of this state; and to ignore their pi-iority of claim would be a monstrous injustice. In conclusion, Gentlemen, should you deem fit to regard favorably my candidature I hope to merit the con fidence repaeed in me.

MR. MACKEY'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 31 May 1906
Ma. Mackey's Speech. Referring to the desire of the Labor party to impose a land tax, Mr. Mackey said that this tax was represented as a very small and innocent" thing of Id. in the áiL Ordinary municipal rates were la. or Is. Gd. in thç £1, ou the annual value of the land ; but the land tax of the Labor parcy was on the capital value. If a fariner had a farm valued at £1500, and t.He value of the improvements was £500, that meant that tlie unimproved value of the farm was £1000. The Labor party's pro posed land tax was calculated at Id. iu the £1 on that £1000 every year, which was equal to Is. 3d. in the £1. They would therefore have to pay this Is. 8cl. in the £1 everyyear, in addi tion to the municipal rate of, say, Is. 6d. - - Mr. Mackey, continuing, said that another "important question was the construction of roads fn Gippsland, which had been very unfairly treated in this respect. For every mile of road constructed in thô western and north ern párts of Victoria, the Governme...
