"HE DIDN'T GIVE THE WORM A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

"iHE DIDN'T GIVEI THE WORIM A CHANCE, "1 reckon,'' said the first farmer, "that 1 get up earlier tlhan anybody in this neighborhood. 1 am always up before 3 o'clock in the morning." The second man said he was always. up before that, and had part of his work done. The first farmer thought he was a liar, and decided to find out. A fen mornings later he got up at 2 o'clock and went to the neighbour's house. lle rapped on the back door, and the woman of the houseo opened it. "Where is your husband?" asked the farmer, expecting "to find his neighbour in bed. "He was around here early in the morning," answered his wife, "but I don't know where he is now."

Whitehead's Creek Hall TRUSTEES AND PUBLIC UNITE COMMITTEE APPOINTED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Whitehead's Creek Hall TRUSTEES AND PUBLIG UNITE COMMITTEE APPOINTED. The embroglio, which threatened to disrupt the career of Whitehead's Creek hall, has been swept away, and judging by the happy ;'finali " of the public meeting on' Wednes day night, the institution now pro mises to have a bright and pro gressive future. About a month ago 'a meeting was called by the shire president at the instigation of a ,number of rate payers, for the purpose of electing new trustees in lieu of those who had either died or left the district. Not being consulted in the matter the two resident trustees were in clined to resent such action, and as the proceedings were expected to be lively, there was a large attendance. Mr Ritchie was elected chairman, and it was in a large m-asure due to his tact and ability, and the evi dent desire of all present to promote the welfare of the hall, that the trus tees somewhat relented, and raised no objectio- to the nominations of Messrs R. Elgan and H. Wallis to...

BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

BEST DRESSED ROYAL LADY. Ans enterprising Belgian journal has madlle inquiries as to the amount ex pended annually by Royal ladies on their toilettes, and has found the fol lowing facts, says the "Evening Stan dard." Queen Victoria of Spain easily takes the first place as the best dressed Royal :tly. She obtains all her dresses from- aris, and has to pay over to the great firms of the Rue do la Paix a sum of no less than £8000 a year. The German Empress has all her dresses made in Berlin, at a cosh not far below £4?000. An equal sum is expended by the Czarina, who dresses in private very simply, and only goes in for expensive robes on State and festival occasions, which, however, are not frequent in view of the retired life of the Russian Im perial family. The same sum repgre tents the cost of dresses to the wife og 31. Poineare. Queen Elena of Italy spends only about £3200 a year, whileo the dress budget of Queen Eliza beth lf Belgium dloes not exceed £2000. Her neighbour, Queen Wi...

St. John's Wort. Interesting Report by Cr. Merrison [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

St. John'S WorL. Interesting Report by Cr. Merrison At the meeting of the Seymou. Council on Monday last, Cr $Mor rison reported that he had attended the conference of shire councils re cently held at Beechworth with the object of taking united action' to prevent the further spread of St' John's wort, a weed that was caus ing landholders in many parts of the State considerable consterna tion and trouble. In company with representatives from other shires he inspected several paddocks infested with the weed. In appearance it looked like a crop of lucerne, with little red berries. These berries exuded a glutinous substance with the seed, so that when animals passed through it, the seed stuck to th, ir legs, and in this way was spread all over the country. He b'ad been shown land affected on which £30 per acre had been spent in getting rid of it, and yet there was as much seed on it now to cover a nation. Spreading salt overthe land was one way of mitigating the trouble but this was not...

MOTHER-IN-LAW TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

MOTHER-IN-LAW TEST. A young., inan living 'in-London: has subjected his prospective mother-inhlaw to the preliminaiy-toot of living with her in hisiew home for the p:ast month. She has passed the test with the highest. honors. Now conies the supreme trial --living wit.the bridegroom and bride after the honey!mloon. The happy bridgegroom recontly ex plained that he was living with, his mother-in-law, for a :mionth before the. wedding to convinceo himself that the modern nmother-in-law in sonime cases may be a help rathdr than a hindrance to a happy marriage. "There has been, no trouble of any sort," he says now. ''Ity mother-in-law is a charm ing woman. I have no fears as to the future." . tle gives these reasons for his mnother-in-law's success: - "(1) Tier good temper: When my wavorite dog (she hates dogs) pawed the tablecloth and disorganised the breakfast she did not say that dogs were clunsy andimals an ought not to be allowed in the house, but treated it as a joke. " (2) IHer r...

GOLF. Seymour Club. On Saturday the men's tourna ment was won by F. J. Feete with 109. W. Adams made the best score forthe day with H. L. Lo max second. The first round for the Presi ident's trophy will be played on Saturday. Play at 2 o'clock sharp. Owing to the Tennis club ball on Wednesday next,. no tournament round will be played. On Wednesday the ladies played their firtt tournament and Miss Stanton won easily with 101:36-65. '1e best grass scores were Mrs Adams 83 and Mrs P9tts 91. Several of the long handicap ladies are to be congraulated on their improved scores and general play, particularly Mesdames Potts and James Clydesdale and Miss Stanton. The improvements made to the holes in Mr. M'Lachlan's 'paddock are tirning out most successful, as these holes are now the favorites,. whereas last year they were the very reverse. i The ladies bogey is now 77 for 13 holes (51:26-77) and the par 73. It is quite possible that many of the players will get very near the "colonel" this s...

HOME v. COLONIAL LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

HOME v. COLONIAL LAND. Mr. Primrose McConnoll writes in the London "Dairy";--ThIre is at,the present time a tremend..us amuuit of literature issued concerning invessaments in land in the colonies. One poins which stands out, however, is that land at Home, compared with any elsewhere, is comparatively cheap. One reads of farms oosting from £30 to £80 per acro in New Zealand, of fruit farms in Bri tish Columbia which are worth from £20 to £830, and of even "homestead" farms, which have only, as it were, got a bare dwelling-house and wire fence, being worth anything up to £5 per acre. Now good farm land at Home, right in the centre of civilisation, with a full equipment which it has taken genera tions to accomplish, can be had at £20 per acre. It can easily be seen, there fore, that there is no comparison be tween the two. Why should anybody go out to the wilds of British Colum bia or Australia or anywliero else, and pay £20 or £30 for a decent farm, when they can get the same thing as...

ELOPEMENT AT 88. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

ELOPEMENT AT 88. It New York recently, "honeymoon ilg" with a crowd of interviewers fol lowing them, were Mr. Wilfred H. Nettleton, a wealthy banker of eighty eight, and his sixty-eight-year bride, who had eloped from Bristol (Connec ticut); and succeeded in getting sec rely mairried at New Haven. Mr. Nettleton, with his smiling bride at his side, told tlhot reporters that li he had loved for fifty years. "I remember," he said, "when she was born. Shilo was a very pretty baby. I always knew she would mlako a Ihandsome woman. lBut at eighteen she miiarried a younger man than [I, so 1 decided to wait. and in the mean time devoted myself to making money. Eight months ago her husland died. I called on her, but was ordered froim the door by her nicr.L, who seemed to think we did riot know our minds.

Hospital Sunday. A LARGE GATHERING. GREAT ENTHUSIASM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Hospital sunday. A LARGE GATHERING. GREAT ENTHUSIASM., Thanks to the capable and effi ,clent manner in which the com mittee and the indefatigable secre tary,- Mr Lawrie, conducted the business in connection with the hospital moveme'bt in Sevmour the annual effort was a gieat success. Considering all things the response was a liberal one. Owing to the inauspiciounsess of the weather the gathering had to be held in the Federal Hall instead of King's Park. This- doubtless militated against ihe success of the effort, as many were unable to get into the hall. Although the collections so far are not so inuch as last year--100-when all the amounts are to hand, they will not be far short. The procession was headed by' the Seymour Brass Band, and mar shalled by Mr T. Luke, of the M.U., and marched as far as the Park, but owing to a smart shower falling on the way, it was deemed wise to return to the hall, which was not able to hold the large number pre sent. The chair was occupied by Mr Mr W...

UNBROTHERLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

UNJBROTHERLINESS. If we think at all, if we get away frozm our egotism, and step out into the world with a determined will ann see life as it is, we realiso that un brotherliness is the insanity of the age-unbrotherliness, that fearful and shocking and pathetic cause of separa tion that exists among men in the world to-day. It not only touches our public life, but our personal lives; and. of course it touches our homes. Our homes are in danger, our young folk are in danger all the time; and no matter how great the love with which parents may surround their children, and thus try to protect them, they are gonstantly meeting with conditions that it seems almost impossible to over come. This is a fact, and we know it; and the greatest difficulty, surely, that we have to meet with in our ef forts is that we not only have so many systems of religion, but we also havse so many systems of education. We neeld to havo a Universal Religion; and if we had this, we should have a universal syste...

Nipped by Nippard. Accused before the Court. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Nipped by Nippard. Accused before the Court. An amusing case was heard at the local- coturt on Monday la't when a man named Herbert Har rison was proceeded against on a charge of trespassing on railway property. Mr G. Nippard, head porter at, the Seymour station, stated that on Saturday morning the station master drew his atten tion to accused, who had been put out of a railway carriage. Accused made a desperate attempt to escape off the platform. He ran up and down the platform, jumped behind the van, and spripted up the six foot way. towards the engine, with the.porter in hot pursuit. Harrison then got on the footplate of the engine, and as Nippard was in the act of "nipping" him he vaulted over the boiler with the dexterity of a kangaroo clearing a fence. As witness could not accomplish this feat he checkmated accused by run ning round the front of the engine, but' accused outflanked him by jumping back over the boiler. This was continued for some time, until accused becoming fat...

AGAINST THE ENCORE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

AGAINST THE ENCORE. A symphony concert consists of a carefully studied musioal unity . One piece must harmoniously fit with the others. One composition must be cho men w.thi regard to the one before it and the one that follows it. The con ductor who makes up a programme not only seeks for the instinctive harmony of each work that he selects, but he also tries to bring one composition into hiar m.ony with all the others on his pro gramme. Any strange element, thero fore, accidentaly inserted, such as an encore, between the harmoniously ar raged compositions necessarily causes a dissonance and upsets the artistio pro portions. Being a sincere admirer of art, and therefore of proportions, I am alwrays anxious to eliminato every per sonal element, such as a desire for per sonal success, wheni I play with an or chestra in a symphonic concert, and do my best to help the artistic cause of 'the concert as a whole.-Josef Hoff 1ina1m1.

CURES BY SUNLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914

CURES BY SUNLIGHT. Lately (says the "Daily Telegraph""' in various parts of the world, dor:".

On the Continent many suwc,-es is an been reported from the exposu.e or patients suffering from various ii tis of tuberculosis to the direct ray? thi sun, and the advocates of this form of treatment, technically known as helio therapy, say that it is sometimes pos sible to cure such a condition, even where great destruction of a tissue has ocourred.

HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. SOME, OF THEE NATURAL LAWSA WITH WHICH THE USE OF MANURE MUST CO-OPElR S ATE. From time immemorial it has been almost the universal custom to spread manure over the surface of the soil aid then plough it under. Generation after generation of farmers have fol lowed the custoni without seriously thinking whether this method was the best method to be embploycd. luinans are controlled more or less by custon and habit, which they accept and adopt unthinkingly on the assumption that whatever is, is right, and that what always has been done is supported by some good reason and therefore should be continued to be done. Every farmer should know for him self precisely why he does what et does. In this matter of manure, it the farmer regularly year after year ploughs manure under, he should not do so unthinkingly, but should know why ho does it, aid then try to learn whether, under all the circumstanioe.

While the busy wheels of in suoiry are rattling with inoessant noise aid the machinery is exhausting fuel, often uinoecessarily, we are inclined to. think we are moving the universe, and that creation itself is no more than .iomtlithing ipon which we can play'oil our cnergies.
