UNITED METHODIST SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 31 August 1894

UNITED METHODIST SERVICE. The Rev; Mr Reed, of the United Methodist Church, delivered a discourse at the Meclinice' Institute,, Tatura, on Sunday morning last, taking his text ,from the Gospel of St. John, chapter 10, verse 9-" I am the door ; by Me if any man enter in he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pasture." Mr Reed said objects in nature of the highest character and of the most insig nificent kind to us had no degree of value 'in themselves to the Redeemer. He could apply any object to Himself. Sometimes it was the most beautiful feature of His surroundings, at others thie most ordinary. Which ever He used was so striking as to be valuable in impressing his worth. In the parable just read the sheep, the shepherd, and the fold gave to the mind a prepossess ing picture, and When Christ applied to Himself the door to the fold.it brought forward an idea that could not be lost sight of. Many sought' the Master's fold in various ways, but there was only one way to g...

WOMEN HAVE HARD TIMES [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 31 August 1894

OMM EN HAVE HARD TIMES: The Minister who made this declaration fromnthe pulpit knew the truth of what he said. W "omans lot is a hard one socially, morally and-physically. Much; of her: existence is monotonous and filled with cares and sorrow. She seems born to suffer, created for pain and fitted to endure. It is fortunate that she is so endowed, she certainly has many sorrows and great suffering. There is mysterious development of girlhood, the care of maternity and the change which comes as she grows older. Very often, too, sheis thrown upon her own resources, without protection, without assistance, and without a friend. What a great cause for thankfulness it should be that scientific discovery has given her the best friend that any woman has ever lhad. It is "a friend in need." It is a friend certain to aid. It is a friend for her girlhood, her maternity, and her later years. It has been the best friend to millions of women:during the last twenty years. It is that grand, that rel...

RAILWAY REFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 31 August 1894

RAILWAY REFORMATION. [By EItUT Sloan.] Among the very, serious questions before the people of Victoria, indeed of Australasia, .is the one of ways and means. From the very nature of the case we are entirely upon a difl'erent footing to the people of the, older worll, or even of the Aniericas. We hlLve a big country, very sparsely populated, bui we have natural conditions that- in: the way of productions need not take a second place to any country of the world, and by the energy of the people are yielding more, a great deal more, than is required for local consumption. We are also a far happier people, for we do not know the pressing pangs of poverty. Thanks to the past there is for the work ing man a higher remuneration, less need for long hours of 'labor, greater social advantages in the form of education and pleasures ; but alas, ihi the near future the prospects are not so bright. We see the small cloud is rapidly darkening the heavens, the towns are feeling the pinch of hard tim...

THE KYABRAM UNION. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. -0 - FRIDAY, AUGUST 81, 1894. IT' is a remarkable fact that events which are usually regarded as blessings to mankind, bring in their train calami ties which curse hnnumanity. When Buckle, in his History of Civilization, asserted 'that the introduction of the potato to Ireland led to national misery and woe, the statement was scoffed at until the cogency of his arguments carried conviction to the minds of the doubters. Prior to the Seventeenth Century, the population of Erin was a comparative handful, but when the potato took root on Irish soil, the people began to multiply at an extraordinary rate. It is a well known rule of political economy that population follows food supplies. The more abundant the pro duction of the earth the greater will be the number of inhabitants.' Good potato land will yield three times more food for man than good wheat land. "In fifty r years from the time the potato was generally clltivated in Ireland, ...

The winter meeting of the Tatura Turf Club, which took place on Wednes day, may fairly claim to have been successful in spite of adverse circum stances. , It was somewhat of a novelty, anud the secretary had to struggle against many dilliculties at the outset. In spite of this the result was fully equal to the expectations of the most sanguine. The entries were numlnerous, and tihe fields which faced the starter good. Fine weather can hardly be expected at this season of the year, but there was no reason for the weather god to pour down the niagara lie did on Tuesday night. The heavy downfall of rain would have rendered many courses unfit for racing, but the track at Tatura was in a fairly good state on \Vednesday. Along the straight, mud was plentiful, biut the course as a whole though heavy was clean. When the first race started there were about 400 people on the ground, and this number was increased litter on. Several bookmalkers plied their...
