KEEP YOUR GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
ii KEEP YOUR GRIT. Hang on! Cling on! No matter what they say. Push on! Sing on! Things will come your way. Sitting down and whining never helps Sa bit; Best way to get there is by keeping up your grit. Don't give up hoping when the ship goes down; Grab a spar or something-just re fuse to drown. Don't think you're dying just because you're hit, Smile in face of danger and hang to your grit. Folks die too easy-they sort of fade away; Make a little error, and give up in " dismay. Kind of man that's needed is the man of ready wit, To laugh at pain and trouble and keep his grit.

The tables at the railway refreshment rooms were decorated in a very attrac tive manner under the supervision of Mr and Mrs F Gough, and the many good and tasty things displayed over them added greater zest to the appetite already made keen by the wintry a'mosphore. The whole scene was a picture worth transferring to canvas; it was one of brightness and animation, and of happiness and har umosny, marred only by the knowledge that farewells had to be bidden to three popular olticials, no...
THINK OF THIS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
THINK OF THIS. The best we can do is the least that should be expected of us. It is better to know too little than Sto know a lot that isn't true. slaking both ends meet is not quite enough; they should lap over a bit. Take time to think. Do not move aimlessly around like a fly with its hlead off. If you lknow that you are right, it does not matter whether anybody else knows it or not. Life is like a penny-in-the-slot ma chine. If we put nothing into it, most assuredly we will get nothing out of it.

NIGHT CLASSES FOR SHEP PARTON. SECOND ATTEMPT A MISEIRABLE FAILURE. MR CALLISTER AWAKES FROM HIS DREAMI. Sport is King; the lamp of In tellect would seem to have been extinguished-so far .as night classes for Shepparton are con cerned. In vain did Mr W H Callister, Principal of the High School, wait in his offlice on Tuesday evening for the enrolment of pupils, in re. spouse to his announcements that he was prepared to commence evening classes for farniers in agri culture and chemistry; for other students in arithmetic, English, hook-keeping and type-writing. Twice a week were those classes to be held. The experiment had been tried in Shepparton over two years ago, when Mr A E Watson was the Principal. He was over sanguine, and after expressing his views to the High School Council on more than one occasion, obtained the sanction of the Education depart ment to commence thosa classes. The necessary number of students had been secured; at one time the total was very encouraging, but i...

VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
VORACITY OF THE JACKASS. Mr. R. G. Wise, of The Springs, Woodford, had a curious experience the other day. While driving his bul lock dray he noticed alaughing jack ass apparently battling with a snake by the roadside. Taking his whip hlandle he went over to the scene of thle conflict with the view of helping the bird to overcome its enemy. On approaching, however, he saw that the battle was over, and that the kookaburra had commenced to swal low the reptile-a green snake 4ft. 31n. long. He had got down about 9in. of the head end and there the snake stuck, the bird being neither able to complete its absorption nor to eject it. It was its efforts to get rid of the snake that had led to the vio lent struggle which drew the atten tion of the passer by. MIr. Wise pick ed up the "combination," the bird be ing unable to offer resistance, and carried it home, and secured an excel. lent photograph of the still firmly united pair. Then he hauled out the snake by main strength and allowed the...
THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
- THE VALUE OF MONEY. Someone has said, "Money does not make the man; but things are apt to be much more comfortable when the man makes money." WYe read of misers who love money just for the pleasure it gives them to hoard it, to handle it, and to count, it over; but such cases are rare. Money is chiefly valued for what it can bring, and it seems foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for it. True, money alone cannot buy health, education, friends, and happi ness; but if rightly valued and used, it can help to give us all of these. Of codrse, the environment, character, and habits of a person shape his views on all subjects. If one has seriously felt the need of money, and is obliged to work hard to obtain it, he will be much more Iikely to know its true value than the person to whom it has come without any effort of his own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly. As far as my acquaintance goes, this is not true. ...
WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
WEANING THE FIOAL.. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals is the actual loss of the companionship of the mother, which causes the colt to worry and fret. Horses are nervous animals, and the colt, being deprived of his "best friend," often spends niuch time in running up and down his paddockl or stall, neighing, pawing and whimp ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of his kind, if not of his mother. To take the place of his dam, the best possible substitute is another colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share- of the feed given. For the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of sight and hearing of the dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving their memories. The main point in the weaning, all things considered, is feeding the colt.: On no accoun...
TRICKING THE PORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
TRICKING THE PORTERS. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which are sometimes made against railway servants, MIr. WV. F. Jackson, the general manager of the North British Railway Company, has been telling a good story, the facts of which, he said, were ascertained in the investigation of a complaint made by the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of the Glasgow stations, and going up to a porter said: "I say, porter, can you tell me where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" he asked. "'What have you got to do with that? Can you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell without---- " "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get someone else to help me." With that the old lady toddled far thiler up tile platform, and meeting an other porter propounded her conun drum to him. "Where are you going, madam?" was his natural question. "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as impertinent as your mate. I'm not go ing to tell you where I'm...

TilE. a~ LTRY YARE1S .'I;leAbwlr tb ve aln:'oeoneieoai dose off oliansoah.. . .. Wheat and oats in rbotatidn make a good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free from lice. Sprinkllihg' the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in keeping the fowls free from throat and lung troubles. There is. no- advantage in allowing the poultry- to;;tramp around in the snow. Better keep them confined while the weather is bad. In puttihg, eggs aside to keep for setting care should. be taken to keep at as even a temperature as possible; they should be turned regularly every two or three days. Lime water is not only a good cor rective of bowel disease, but is also a good. remedy for soft shelled eggs. Keep a supply convenient where the fowls can lielp themselves. One of the most important itenm in setting hens early is to have the nests warm and dry. Make them 'tight and set them in the w...

ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 28 May 1914
ALLOWANCES, An ekcellent idea, and one that is steadily growing in favor, is the cus tom of allowing quite young girls a fixed sum for their small current ex penses, permitting full liberty in th. expenditure, but requiring .a strict ace. counting in a business-like form at stated periods. No better method could possibly be devised to teach the tr 7 value of money and instil cor re_ "-siness habits; and practical ionn.al ability will not come amiss, whatever the future lot may be, whe ther as a wife. or a member of the maiden sisterhood. Not that the mat ter of mere saving is so important, but the systematic habits formed .in this particular will have an undoubted effect on all the other habits as welt. There are a number of young ladies in. this city, belonging to wealthy families, who manage property and vwith marked, ability. The father of one of these presented her,. on her twenty-first birthday, with the deed of a house in the business part of the city,, on the condition that s...
