:EMPIRE DAY. TP eIll Downs Soliool. FROM OUR CORRESPONDBNT.

The children then adjourned to the echool, where a very lengthy programme of songs and recitations was gone througlh. It was quite a teat to hear the children singing their vari ous parts, and it showed that great pains had been taken by the teacher, and the children themselves, to come to such perfection. There are home sweet and lovely voices amongst the little girls attending this school. Very noticeable was. the singing of "Sylvia" by two little dots, May and Grace Um bers. Mr. OQ'Shannassy, the corres pondent of the school committee, was present, and delivered a patriotic ad dress to the children on the history and building up of the.British Empire, and the; ...
FEDERAL ISSUES. LEGISLATORS AT PLAY. CONTRIBUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914
FEDERAL ISSUES. LEGIOLATORS AT PLAY. SBoyond all doubt the Federal Parlia. ment stands lower in public', esteem than it did. To a certain extent its fall was inevitable. No church, no. so ciety, no organisation ever did, or ever wih do, all that enthusiasts expect when they found it. Moreover, at the outset each of the States sent the ablest of its politicians to one or other of the Commonwealth Houses. When men like Barton, Braddon, Deakin, King ston, Playford, Reid and Turner were removed by promotion to the bench, sickness, death or other happening, there were no State members of the same calibre to take their place. More over, men of mark outside Parliament had begun to realise that to spend the greater part of the year in a political capital.remote from their homes, means complete sacrifice of business or pro-. fessional interests. But from time to time, :and notably during the past year, the- Federal Houses have lost public esteem by gratuitous displays of narrow party feeling...

COURSING. SWAN HILL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914
S COURSING. SWAN HILL CLUB. The second coursing meeting of the Swan Hill Coursing Club for the present season was held on the plumpton. on Wednesday afternoon under most favor able circumstances. The weather was pleasant, and there was a large attendance. Coursing is going ahead by leaps and bounds in this district, and great interest is being taken in the local club's meetings. A noticeable feature was the increasing number of ladies who attended. The hares were strong and well trained, and some good courses were witnessed. Only five hares were killed out of thirty-two. Two stakes were run off yesterday, the Ted Binna' Stakes for sixteen all-aged dogs and the Bo~a Plate for sixteen puppies. The deciding course for the former was contested by Goldsmith Lady anid Lady's Man. The latter led up to the hare and put in some good work, and eventually won by 31 point.. Goldsmith Lady was at a disadvantage in having to run an undecided course in the first ties, and had a gruelling course in...

FOOTBALL. SWAN HILL ASSOCIATION. Lake Boga (5.10) beat Five Brigade (2.9). The match between the above teams on Wednesday at Boga turned out to be a most disappointing one from a spec tator's point of view. The game -was excedingly rough throighbut;,mainly, owing to the bad judgment of the field umpire, Roper. It was: simply a scramble after' the first half of the play, and a most uninteresting: match to witness. The final scores were: Lake Boga, 5 goals 10 behinids (40 oints); Fire Brigade, 2 goals 9 be. i n ds (2 1 p o in ts ) . ' r . i d - Imperial v. Fire Brigade.

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is astrange but undeniable fact that most people hardly e er hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you w11 sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise that: it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly stop talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a great start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to bear yourself m)micked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "Who is that meant for?" and other people- who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you,-don't you re cognise it?" and then you realise how deaf to your own voice you have bden for many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a: photograph is always some thing of '...
To the Gouty. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 4 June 1914
To the' Gduty2 For those who are .liable to attacks of gout, it is an excellent rule to re-', duce the allowance of butcher's meat, especially beef, taking it no oftener than once a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes on very slowly, if at all, during the hours of sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type. Industry is essential to happiness and idleness is the friend of unhappi ness and ennui. Certain persons al ways will and always have existed who find employm.?nt distasteful. They are endowed with an indolent disposition, and enjoy nothing more than complete immunity from work and responsibility. Their intense dis like of work of all descriptions en ables them to be ever ready with what they are pleased to consider an adequate excuse. They "did not know," they "thought it had been done," they "believed it was to be done tomorrow," it was "too hot" o...
