THE OVERSEER SPEAKS. "This plantation has got a bad namu. •Tlio owner's got a bad name among tho natives. , Men never earned their full wages on those acres; they cut the last overseer into a hundred and something pieces just down there by tho tool-shod with tlie largo cane knives you see • them carry.

THE PLOUGHMAN'S JARGON. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914
THE PLOUGHMAN'S JARGON. With all our growing love of country, of rural scenes and pursuits; - with, all our kiio\v,-t(igo of horses and cattle, and our assiduity in compiling new vocabu laries and glossaries, it is surprising tliat? wo still lack a guide to tlio mean ing of the continuous conversation which animates tho true-born country man in conjunction with his team. lj. might reasonably be supposed thab the plodding ploughman, the jocund team ster, and grinning yoknl could enlighten us concerning ilio jargor and jumble of sounds they use when managing "osses" in tho field, farmyard and stable. Yet even a Yorkshirenian of this clad?, though generally admitted to be an ex peri in equine education, is unable to explain anything for very shyness. His working hour prate ranges from the harsh and guttural to the smooth, and musical, and it is interesting .without being convincing; but our knowledge is| obviously a long way from being com- | plete.

ROYAL SHOW ON GOOD FRIDAY [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914
ROYAL SHOW ON GOOD FRIDAY Archbishop Wright, preaching at St. Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney, on Sunday, criticised the Royal Agricul tural Society for allowing the show to bo opened on Good Friday, which was a glaring offence against the religious convictions of a great part of the community. The Society should not fill its coffers by turning a holy day into a carnival. Replying to the criticism, Mr H. M. Somer. secretary of th« Royal Agricultural Society, said the primary reason was not to take money, but many people would ba prevented from seeing the show if it were not open on Good Friday. That the people desired it to be open was proved by ttie large attendance. Surely there should be liberty of con science, and the people should not be debarred from attending an educa tional and a harmless entertainment on Good Friday
