TIGER AND MAN. THRIIlIANG STORY OF A JUNGLE HUNT. A description of a fearful fight be tween a white manl and a tiger has reached the "Berliner Tagelgldtte" fromn Bangkok, in Siam.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
TURF TOPICS. i . (By "Flemi'n. .." ) News of Isaac Earnshaw's death came as a shock: to those whio hat met him at the. A.J.C. Autumn 'meeting. He then seemled to be in 'his usual health. lit had, however, been known for some years that Earnshaw suffered:- from a throat trouble, and it was probably while under ari opera tion for this complaint that he suc cumbed. Earnshaw was without doubt one of the most skilful trainers this country has known. ' Wheni his op portunities came to him, he made full use of them. He did not believe in hurrying horses. His idea was to give them plenty of time, and -then it there was any good in thezn-"he wotld develop it. Earnshaw trained many a- good winner in hisday, but the great Poseidon will in the years to come; be the horse mostly associated witt. his memory. ln cdnnoction with the Adealido Cup which is to be de cided next week, it is only neoessary to say just now that Eltham and Coro natus seem a likely pair.

SOME POINTERS IN THE CARE OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
SOME POINTERS IN THE CARE OF 'PIGS. The essentials of an environment suitable for breeding- animals: are sobh as will afford-them an abundance of sunlight, fresh air and'exercise during the day, and warmth abndfreedom from dampness at night. During the sum mer months the' housing problem is an easy one; and that of providing range is more difficult because it involves fencing, and for this reason too' many pig-growers fail to provide 'suffiient range to derive the greatest p~ssible benefit from it. There are no rules for determiniag the acreage necessary to pasture.-a given number of pigs. Ramnfall, the nature of the soil, tillage; amount of grain fed, are all factors'tha' enter into the problem. In most parts of the province one-half acre of well oulti vated land sown to a suitable forage crop will be sufficient to pasture 'one brood sow and her progeny 'of seven pigs. The amount of grain that should be fed in addition to the forage thus supplied will vary from 3 to 10'lb. per day ...

A LESSON. A clhoolmaster in the country de livered an address to the scholars, of which the following is a passago - "You boys ought to be kind to your little sisters.

A student liad been bragging of his various accomplishments; until one of the ddepany, losing his patienee, said: "Now, we have. heard quite enough of what you can do, and I'll undertake to do it myself." "Indeed? Well, I can't pay my bill and am very glad to find that youn can do it," replied the student. Amid the hilarit of the company the giest redeemed his rash promise.

BE KIND TO THE OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
BE KIND TO THE OLD.. We do not know anything that re quires more tact and-more. tenderness than the treatment of old people by thoso ivho are younger than them.. elvecs. Show a kind and thoughtful rtgard for their-feelings; give them ometsihing to do that they can do; he respectful, deferential, reverential even, and you will reap a rich harvest of hope in hearts in which, perhaps, it was almost dead, and of gratitude and affection for yourself; the more so as the old are beginning to distrust their own powers, and sometimes ask them selves the question if their day of use fulness is not pasb.
ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
ODDS AND ENDS. Learn to laugh. A good laugh' i bet ter than medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A well told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick room. Learn to keep your troubles to your. self. The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop cro~aking. If you can not see any good in the world, keep the bad to yourself. Learn to hide your pains and aches under a pleasant smile. No one cares to hear whether you have the earache, headache, or rheumatism. Don't cry. Tears do well enough in novels, but they are out of place in real life. Learn to meet your friends with a smile. The good-humored man or woman is always welcome, but the dyspepl.ic or hypochondriac is not wanted anywhere, and is a nuisance as well. A bonnet covered with birds does not sing, but it makes a man whistle when the bill comes in.

Then after a moment of deep thought, looking up cheerfully, he said "But, if you like, I can tell you how you can fix your gas meter so it won't recgister."

ALL OF SALT.. "For a thousand years the workers in this enormous'salt mine have been busy transforming it into chapels, res tunrants, ball-rooms, railways, stair cases, and pillars," remarks a writer, in speaking of an underground city of salt which is the centre of the Galician salt industry, in Austria. "The city is in three floors, and de scent is made by a lift or a staircase,. The rooms are sunerb. In one a salt chandelier of 300 lights gleams in the centre. The third floor of the mine cont.jins the- restaurant and railway tation. Twentv-five miles of railway from all narts of the mine join here, snjl the buffet is well patronised by the thousands of visitors to the mines."

A TEAM'S BAD HABITS. A tr.nm's habits often depend on the d:ýri' nole of the driver. If he is a iI. i1 ? gumption he will give one clear, -, &lt;p I o:r to go or to stop, and the it:in, thinking it is a Bismarck or Na p ein ',ho is behind them, will at once obey. He smaies in his sleeve a; the Iraying and swearing of some tr:tlnsters when they undertake to move their horses. Then he smiles again % s.en they can't stop on the point, and hv\-e to go through a backing operation to get the waggon where they want to ui'.oad.

Terribly -Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY i ANNABEL GRAY. MISS MAIICHMONT'S FOLLY. "Noy, fly to altars.: there they'll talk you dead, For. fools rush in, whore angels "fear to tread." Maiden ladies, especially when a lit tle past middle age, engrossed with ec clesiastical matters, and possessing small judgment of the workl, comnit many egregious follies, and Miss Marohmont considered herself shame fully imposed on when 'sle heard of Lenore's conduct. She never for a mo ment believed that they were married. It was really atlogether too dreadful to think of-and a villa, too, and he in debt, and both apparently so happy. This last announcement wounded her the most. To think that sin and un godlniess ever dared rejoice, and vir tue pine in secret. But, she reflected, the- credulous must now and then be the prey of the the strong, large fish devour the weak little ones, or a hospital for sick pa tients and souls in distress, who can only, move from one part of their pri son to another in the ...
Avenel. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
Avenel. Mr P. J. Gleeson, our worthy townsman, ,l hough being ahar worker, believes in elegance and comfort when the opportunity per- mits. His latest addition to a well- appointed home is a handsome new 2 h.p. motor car, which arrived during the week. To him, there- fore, belongs the distinction of in- troducing the first locally-owned &nbsp; car in Avenel. His pretty iome is also one of the finest in the town, and several buildings on the racecourse (all designed by him) are monuments of his energy and ability. Football is the liveliest topic here &nbsp; now, and a good match is looked forward to at Seymour to-morrow when a number of "colts" will take the field. R. Fontana, the popular captain of last year, had the mis fortune to meet with an accident last week, which may be the means of invalidating him for a while. It is hoped, however, that "Bub" or "'Mulga" as he is popularly known may be sufficiently recovered to don the colors on Saturday. On Tuesday 127 poin...

Church Anniversary. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
Church Anniversary. The anniversary of the Seymour Methodist Church 'was celebrated on Sunday last when two special sermons. were preached by the Rev. Mr Adamson, of Melbourne. -In the evening discourse the rev. gen tleman referred to the general un rest that appeared. universal throughout the world. The human panaceas had 'failed to usher in an era of contentment. Though wages had risen the men could not hon estly say they were any better off, and were far from beingcontented, the purchasing power of the sover eign having materially 'decreased. Thebusiness man, too, had his cares and anxieties ,in this age of keen competition, and he must admit that his mind, was always stretched to its utmost tension to keep pace with the commercial evolutions of trade and commerce. Amidst- all this turmoil there was only one safe avenue to peace, and that was the setting of the mind and the affections on Jesus Christ, who was ",the same yesterday, to day and for ever." And in Him, and Him alone, ...
Football Notes [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
Football Notes (BY LONG SHOT.) , The vexed question of payment of lost time to players is at present causing, considerable discussion. It will be remembered that at the: annual, meeting the report from last year's committee recommended that this matter should bq taken into serious: consideration, but though it was discussed at great length no decision was arrived at. A suggestion has been made that a special general meeting of the club be called to finally settle the matter, and if this were done it would re: lieve the committee of a good deal of worry, and put matters on a definite footing. Though "'Dumps" Robinson has signed an application to be registered with Seymour, it is again reported on good authority that he intends playing with Nagambie. Should this.be the case Seymour will be deprived of the services of one of their best players, and it is to be hoped that Robinson will give the matter fuller consideration be fore he decides to give up the club which has stood to him so ...

An Heroic Act by a Girl Saves her playmate from Drowning. What might have terminated in a sad downing fatality on Sunday last was only averted, by the bra very and presence of mind of Muriel Bowman, a young daughter of Mr and Mrs Bownian of Railway Re serve.

High Class.. Concert Drawin 'of Art Union Mr A. Preece the Winner, Those who were unable to be' present at the concert held in the Federal Hall on Friday night last missed a rare musical treat,. which is seldom, if ever, placed before a local audience. The entertainment was arranged in connection with the drawing of St. Patrick's Day art union, which had been so well patronised that the colimittee, as a mark of their appreciation, made:up their minds to provide a concert that would excel anything of the kind ever held in Seymour. Miss Alice Madigan, a pianist of the high. est order, was commissioned- to en gage a combination of leading ar tists, and her choice showed that she thoroughly understood the re quirements of local music lovers, as everybody left the hall in rap tures with what they had heard. there was not a single' item but what was encored, and in several instances the artists had to appear three or four times. The opening item, a duet, by Messrs Collier and W. Davis, "W...
