From Trinidad to Bournville. REMARKABLE MOVING PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

From Trinidad to Bournville. REMARKABLE MOVING PICTURE. How they do ib at Bournville, the place where the world-wide famous cocoa and chocolate come from which bear that name, formed the subject of a peculiarly effective and cleverly arranged film at West's pictures in Sydney recently, bear ing the appropriate title, " The food of the gods." We have all enjoyed Oadbury Brothers' fiournville cocoa, and their delightful chocolate preparations, but very few know the history of what they are consuming, from the plant in far away Trinidad down bo the point at which they strip off the pictumque wrapper to get at the dainty, aud nutritious contents. Away in Trinidad, underfavouringtropical skies, the firm has its estates with their far-stretching plantations; here you see the setting of the young plants, their maturity, the harvesting of the c.-coa pods, their opening, and the natural dry ing of the beans by the sun's fierce tropical heat. Then come the bagging, the mule transport to the n...

FOR THINKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

FOR THINKERS. ; The lucky man is the one who grasps his opportunity. It costs more to avenge wrongs than to bear them. We get out of life just what we put Into it; the-world has for us just what we have for it. Don't brood over the past or dream of the future, but use the instant and get your lesson from the hour. Stock-taking every day is a great aid to advancement. Stop and add yourself up at the close of each day and see if you have anything to carry forward. If you have nothing but ciphers over, something is wrong somewhere. Happy the man who finds a peculiar joy in undertaking a difficult and dis agreeable task and in achieving it.. The largest room in the world is the room for self-improvement. We should all try to endure our own troubles with the same admirable for titude that has helped us to endure those of our friends. Do not despise little things; the widow's mite was as precious as the rich man's gift. So should little acts of kindness be appreciated when em anating from...

The Meanest Man. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

The Meanest Man. The meanest man m the world 1b said to have gained his reputation "in the following manner:— In a small village in Ontario a poor olind and deaf beggar used to sit at the post-office corner and play stirring melodies on an ancient bar rel-organ, at the same time holding out a rusty tin cup, into which sun dry coppers were sometimes dropped by benevolent passers-by. Richard Darke, a well-to-do but avaricious far mer, conceived a plan which he de termined to put into execution. One morning, when the beggar had left his instrument for a few moments, the crafty farmer took it away and placed in its stead a large barrel-churn, well filled with milk. The aged beggar, on coming back to his position, grasped, as he thought, the handle of his bar rel-organ, but in reality that of the churn, and turned away with might and main, as he was wont, perhaps wondering, however, at the lack of the coppers dropped into the cup. At last, after grinding away for about three hours in des...

IMPROVING THE FARM HORSESTOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

IMPROVING THE FARM HORSE STOCK. Strange, isn't it (writes Mr. H. F. Allen), how the fearful ones a few ; years ago predicted that the horse business was on the road to the bow ; wows? One publisher even had the courage to start a monthly magazine called the "Horseless Age." But this is anything but a horseless age. Nev er was horseflesh in higher estima tion than to-day. Draught horses are in great demand. Buyers are scour ing the producing sections with en energy, and most of them complain not at the high prices demanded, but at the absolute scarcity of good indivi duals. Try to buy a pair of good ones; you will be most forcibly con vinced that we have not nearly enough of the kind we want. On the contrary, however, the country is fill ed with ordinary, undersized plugs, with no indication of selection or of breeding. It takes plenty of good feed to make large draught horses, and any check or stunting in their growth will take quite a few pounds out of the breed er's pocket. So bre...

A Signal of Distress. Pain in the back is the kidneys' signal of distress. If this timely warning is ignored kidney disease silently fastens its deadly grip—for kidney sickness first shows itself in pains and disorders in other parts, and the real cause is too often hidden until fatal Brigbt's Disease or Diabetes has set in. Suspect the kidneys if you are rheumatic and nervous, or have a lame back, painful, too frequent, or scanty urination, weak heart, dizzy spells, headaches, bloating or neuralgia. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills have been curing lame backs and sick kidneys for years. The following endorsement is convincing:— Mr Thos. Geo. Anderson, blacksmith, High street, Rushwortb, says :—I had trouble with my back for some time. There was a terrible pain just over the kidneys, which seriously handicapped me at my work, as I could not move without suffering agony. I was advised to use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, so got Bome. They did me good right from the first dose, and after ...

Soon Be Thirty. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

Soon Be Thirty. Miss Manu Skript, whose age could not with decency be estimated at less than forty, conceived the idea that she was a born writer. So, composing a few stories, poems, essays, and other things, she hied her to an editorial lair. Now, this parti cular editor was a very wise man— such a thing is possible. He read the articles, and knew them to be use less. So, to sugar the pill, he said sweetly: "Your work shows promise, my dear young lady. But a good literary style only comes with years of experience. When you are, say, thirty, you'll be able to do good work. Good-morning." Now Miss Skript tells all her friends what a really amiable man the editor is. "Although it is safe to say that al most any green fodder crop is cap able of being turned into ensilage, it it is a mistake to think that silage is such a marvellous thing it actu ally acquires, during the slow and gradual process of fermentation to which it is, of course, subjected, more nutritious pualities than the gr...

RUSHWORTH DEFEAT SEYMOUR. AN UNEXPECTED VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

KUSHWORTH DEFEAT SEYMOUR. AN UNEXPECTED VICTORY A surprise was elleeted by the Rush worth team on Saturday last in the:r match with Seymour on the local ground. Onlookers paid admission fully expecting to see the Seymour team, which has gained some reputation again this season, easily defeat the Rushworthites, and it came as somewhat of a surprise to them when the locals turned the tables. Sey mour wore rather weak, of course, but the same can bo said of the Ilushworth team, which, owing to lack of interest, has lately been weakenyig. There was a very strong westerly wind blowing, and tho scoring was practically all the time at the town end goal. Rushworth opened up with the wind, and Bcorod 2.4 to nil iu the tirst quarter, but Seymour were m re successful in the second aud added 3.3 to nil. Rushworth, however, agaiu scored strongly in the third quarter and assumed a lead of 13 puints, and, by putting up a strong dofenco in thu liual quarter, wore ablo to securo a meritorious victor...

MURCHISON WINS MINOR PREMIERSHIP. RUSHWORTH DEFEATED. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

MURCHISON WINS MINOR PRE MIERSHIP. BUSH WORTH DEFEATED. By defeating Rushworth on Wednes day afternoon last the Murchison foot ballers definitely annexed the minor premiership of the W.N.E.F.A. for the current season. The advantage thus gaiued entitles that team to the right of a challenge match in the event of their being defeated in any of the semi-final or final matches. Although Murchison gracod a position at the top of the pre miership list and Rushworth occupied a place at the bottom this fact robbed the match of very little of its interest. The meeting of the Murchison and Rushworth toams would be capable of drawing a large crowd of supporters even if no associa tion was in vogue, and thus it was that, although nothing in the way of premier ship honors were at stake on Wednesday afternoon last, the attendance was large. The gate takings-amounted to £8. The Murchison club was represented by a fairly strong side, there being but three notable absentees, buton the other hand Rus...

F OOT BALL N OT E 5. WAUANGA - NORTH - EASTERN ASSOCIATION. LAST "WEEK'S MATCHES. Murchisou (11.12) beat Avenel (3.4) llushworth (5.9) beat Seymour (3.6) Nagambie (5.8) beat Euroa (2.8) [By Goalpost,] —o— Matches under the Waranga-North Eastern Association were continued on Saturday afternoon last, when the list of matches played were as enumerated above. Each of the games played had an importaut bearing on the premiership, and aroused a deal of interest. By de feating Avenel in a decisive manner Mur chison made the winning of the minor premiership fairly s fe, but assurance was made doubly sure by the defeating of Euroa by Nagambie. Seymour took along a weak team to Itushworth, and lost practioally their only chance of. in clusion in thq final four by being beaten by the "red and blacks." By defeating Itushworth, at Itushworth, on Wednes day afternoon last, Murchison definitely annexed the minor premiership, which entitles them to a double chance for the 1914 premiership of the W.N...

ANONYMITY AND LOYALTY. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

ANONYMITY AND LOYALTY. XO THE EUI'l'OIv Sui.—Mr Stewart, in his fiist reply to me, wrote—" It is a distinct pleasure to •meet a man with whom you can agree to differ." In his last reply he tells youi readers I am "a negligible quantity to him in the controversy," and he refers also to my " ignorance of the true relation of historical events." Now, it is well known that the term " ignorance " is one of opprobrium to most men, and is cer tainly best left out of any controversy, and I will say as one whom Mr Stewart chose to tsrrn a "negligible quantity"; one whom he may feel disposed to despise as a controversial opponent, and one who in the advocation of his present cause he would welcome as a footstool to lift him self to the platform of local pre-eminence, it is wise to keep yourself in check on the subject of ignorance, for everyone of us are heirs to that unhappy heritage in one form or another. As a matter of fact, was it not Mr Stewart's "ignorance" of one subject that caused b...
