WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914

WORTiH A SECOND THOUGHT. The chronic borrower is a neighbor hood nuisance. The best bosses are frequently the poorest workers. Prosperity Ihas been the ruination of many a nman. If you must carry a grievance arounU with you, keep it to yourself. lgnoo'anco is not bliss when you are in tihe hands of a sharper. If your wife is a good cook don't for get to tell her so. She deserves the praise. The mani who keeps the corners of his mouth turned up is a publ:o benle factor. Th' clock never complains of being overwcrked, and it puts in every min ute, too! if the reins are drawn too tightly tihe young fo.ks are liable to run away from home. Because a couple are fine-loolking is no sign they will get along fine once, they are married. 1Many a cow kicks because that is the onily way she can tell you that soimethiing is wrong. If it becomes necessary to destroy the little kittens, don't let the children see you do it. It's queer how many men have busi ness inl a neighboring town when. a cir c...

Terribly Tempted. CHAPTER XVII. THE DAY AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914

Tempted. A hSERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XVII. THE DAY AFTER. There was so much 'consitent inlCOn sistency," in Colonel Stamier's chqrao ter-if we may use the term; he was so strange a conmpound of varied con tradictions, .that alter Lenore had gain ed some rest by sleep, she refused to accept the ukase he had pronounced against her. It had been spoken, ot course, in a momient of irritation - of petulant caprice, caused by worry. He never meant to sentence her. The good and evil qualities of his mind were so &amp;lt;curiously ilendcd, that thie good was sometines in the asZ;clldaint. Why should it not be so now ? His false hood, fickleness, and selfishness must be glossed over. She must still sub mit to tlhat fascinaxion and sorcery, against which, morally speaking, her soul rebelled, because she loved him too tenderly to be thrust from his preseoca, and survive it. He on his part had, however, never faltered in h:s resolve, and the .fact that' there were duns, more sum...

NATIVE TIMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914

NATIVE TIMBER. In the opinion of Mr. J. Stone, a member of the Meadows braneh of the Agricultural Bureau, the Gov ernment should offer some induce ment to land-holders to preserve the young timber growing on their land. Addressing a recent meet ing, he said the red gum was valu able for fencing posts and railway sleepers, etc., was fairly durable, and made good fuel. The cedar, or jarrah gum, in addition to possess the qualities of the red gum, was said to be suitable for the manu facture of timber, flooring joists, or other building purposes. The blue gum was valuable as sawn timber for building purposes, and as fuel and fencing posts. Pink gum made- excellent fencing posts, which were unaffected by white ants. Stringy bark was extensive ly used for fencing, and when sawn for building and furniture. It was particularly useful in connection with lime burning, as it burnt very slowly. The mountain gum varied in quality, the more durable kinds being useful for fencing posts and strain...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914

MELBOURNE LETTEI (From Our Special Correspondent). In marked contrast to the scare which last winter sent people in thou sands to the vaccinators is the lndif forence with which the recrudescence of small pox in Sydney is viewed' here. Under, the extremely loose way of deal ing with patients and contacts now prevailing the chances of the unplea sant disease extending tes scope of ope rations to Melbourne are by no means remote. But familiarity with the menace and the absence of a death roll in the contaminated oity-sufficiently formidable to arrest attention, have dulled apprehensions. Perhaps when a few cases actually occur here there will be a different attitude, and, let us hope, for the sake of the reputation ot the city, that it will be more of the "get-up-and-get" order than that of the Sydney people, who with Oriental 'in difference, seem to be content that the city, of which they are so proud, should continue indefinitely to be the plague spot of Australia. While immigration...

GOOD FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

GOOD FORM. Young people frequently become most embarrassed when they suddenly realise that on the street, in a public conveyance, at rthe theatre, the restaur ant or church, they have done some trifling thing .to make themselves con spjcuous. Here are a few simple rules which the uninitiated.'will do. Well to memorise:- .. . When a youing man meets one or inore girls on thle street car by accident he does not offer to pay . their...fare. That is his privilege only when he is their escort for the trisp Girls in business are often joined at lunch by young men employedt in the same offices. Under these circunistan ces there need be .no embarrassment over the check. The girl pays her own bill precisely as if the man had not appeared on the scene. When escorting a girl to the. thea ire, church or restaurant tlhe'ni man must first ascertain jlwhether there is an usher or head waiter at the door. If there is, he permits the girl:ito enter first, lholding the door open for hier. The usher o...

THE OLD RAIL FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

THE OLD RAIL FENCE. It fitted well each rural scene and lent it half its charm, 'The old rail fence, the ragged fence, that stalked across thile farm. It took its zigzag course along-ran on without an end, There cross-vines found a place to cling, the birds knew it as friend; The lizards stretched themselves along its old gray rails to sun, Anid there the quail piped up his call when each long day was done. This mossy-bearded pioneer has almost passed away, Where'er we go we seldom see the old rail fence to-day. It played its part and played it well another has its plaoe, ThIe new wire fende that stretches on in slenderness and grace, But we who loved it still shall miss its rugged, quiet charm', The old rail fence, the ragged fence, that stalked across the farm.
