HOLLY AND HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
HOLLY AND HOPE. Shed, shed and dead lio the flowers that crowned the Summer; Chill, how chill and still, lies the land that Winter numbs. See! not a bee where, in gardens dumb and dumber. Wind-whipped an.d nipped, died the last chrysanthemums. All's darki yet mark where a little sunllny isthmus Dim moons and grim joins; one nook where Spring has scope, Junee with roses strewn! who will sigh for thee at Christmas? Holly's here, when days are drear, to pl nt the world swith hope! Life and joy are rife; hearth and heart let in :the straniger; Poor men win the door whence the ruddy welcome glows. - All, great and small, by the Star may seek the Manger; 'Near each, to cheer each, the Christ nuas holly grows. - Gre'n as Pesoe is seen when the ilnwers of joy are over, Greet us when our feet down the dark ways gropie; l'wine, .then, the Shrine of the Inn that waits the rover; Holly, by the Baby lie who gave the world its hope! 8,. Gertrude Ford.'
ROLLER SKATES IN POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
ROLLER SKATES IN POSTAL SERVICE. Boller-ska-ting (says _ "Cihambers's Journal") is generally regarded as. a pastime, but the United States Got ernl'ent has found it very useful in the postal service. In one of the large post-offices in Chicago the post inel store their uniforms, bags, and other requisites in the basement. Thera are are 1100 lockers in an apart sent lmeasuring i300ft. il length. It was found that checking the equip-. ments during the rush hours imposed a severe task onl the clerks. In order to facilitate the work the chief of th, denartment suggested that the clerks should use roller-skates, so that 'lhey could traverse the floor quickly and with less fatigue. The employees co1om came to appreciate .le ulnlova tion, as it also effected a welcome re duction in the sear arid tear of Loot leather. The experiment proved a complete success, because the cmrks equipped with the skates p~ulf.amiea their checking duties in a quarter - of the tinmo formerly occupied. Roller sk...
JUSTICE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
JUSTICE IN JAPAN. Truly, a wonderful country is the Kingdom of the Mikado, and so ancient is its history that Japanese sovereigns are known to have ruled and flourished several hundred years before the birth of Christ. It is a remarkable fact that throughout countless ages, from time immemorial until now, there has been but one ruling dynasty in Japan. The Emperor of to-day belongs to the same royal family as did his predecessors who lived B.C. The Japanese arrangements for trying a prisoner are very. different from ours. With us the judge is a judge, and an impartial one; in Japland the occupant of the seat of justice combines, as he does in France, the functions of judge and prosecuting counsel. He cross examines severely, and from the pris oner extrscts the minutest details con cerning his antecedents. Not that the past history of the captive, if he is a ne'er-do-well, is unknown. Far from it. In Japan there is a wonderful system of espionage which aims at thwarting the ambitions...
OVERWHELMED BY THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
OVERWHELMED BY THE SEA. A strangely romantic interest atta ches to certain records of the old town of Dunwich, which have been oxamined for tho first time and summarised in the seventh volume of the Historical Manuscripts Commission's Report on Manuscripts in Various Collections, published recently. Dunwich has gradually perished be fore the iesursions of the North Sea till to-day only one ruined church of the seven which it once possessed remains. But its old registers, beginning in 1595, have been preserved ''in a massive, curiously painted iron chest, of which the ponderous lid, when let down, auto matically closes the four bolts of a lock, of which the key can only be turned with the help of an iron bar." The chest is traditionally believed to have been washed up on Dunwich beach from soue wrecked vessel, and is now kept in the village reading-room. In 1596 four fishermen were sharply fined for going to sea on Sunday,"con trary to the laws of God and of this realelr." Every hous...

MAKING MONEY OUT OF COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
MAKING MONEY .OUT OF COWS. There are ten rules for making money out of cows and they all begin with "milk good cows." To put the case in a nutshell, or rather to skim the cream from the whole matter, lot us admit that there are, say, seven fundamental principles of successful dairying, about as fol lows: 1. Weed out the poor cows by means of the scales and the Babcock test. 2. F'ecd the good cows plenty of clean, choice stuff ,s close to a balanced ration as possible. 3. Eliminato competition by preduo ing a better product than the other fellow and demanding .a good price for it. 4. lHcad the herd with a high class, purebred sire. 5. Raise the promising calves from the host.cows only. 6. Develop a market for your sur plus bull calves and other stoock. 7. Feed the mind of the man behind the cow. Too many farmers spend good money for Babcock testers and other imple monts of that kind, thenu storoe tliem away in the barn or on a shelf in the milk house and forget entirely how to tise t...

TUFF TOUICS. (By "Flemington.") -So far Wakeful can hardly be said to have aohieved the success at the stud that her -pedigree and high class performances on the Turf justified her sunrers in expecting. It is true that she is"tlhe dam of a brilliant gal loper in Blairgour, but speed was unis horse's strong point, and jt is feared he is not a very reliable, character. .If Wakeful's reputation as a producer has to mainly rest on Blairgour, she will certainly net have attained nmuch fame at the stud, But there is timeo yet for Wakeful to "'malke good." .It is just possible that her son, Balranald, who won his first race at laandwick on Saturday, is destined to furnish into a worthy son of his dam.- It has taken Balranald at long while to find his legs, but, be ing by Positano, iso notice need be taken of his requiring such a long while to come to hand.

UTILITY IN THE HOME. According to those people who write books on furniture and' decoration, we arc full of artistic vice; but at least it seems that every day we learn to possess more of the courage of our con victions, of our incomes, and our par ticular methods of gaining a living. If a cottage is our domicile we buy cottago furniture, and endeavour to preserve tihe simple atmosphere of this most modest of dwelling-places. The lilt has a treatment of its own. Skill and ingenuity iare taxed to their utimost in the utilisation of space. Eveii villadom, the most .obdurately ortho dox, is clearing its room, dismanutling its windows, and learning to put utility before parade. Somne women have actually dared to do away with draw ing rooms, and have substituted music roomls, studios, and common rooms in stead. Already,there is no longer one type of arrangement for every kind of homnc.
