TRAINING THE FARMER. POSITION OF COUNCIL OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 8 June 1914
-~------ tt TRANINING THE FARMVER, qu - -- ? . POSITION OF COUNCIL OF EDUCATION. It is expected of the State Minist;ry that itshould atlast undertake the reform of the State system of agrictiltural education, and that its first steps should be directed against the Council of Agricultural Education. It is very diflicult for the public to realise exactly what purpose the particular body is serving. It meets at regular intervals, and it holds lengthy meetings, at which members dis cuss seriously and elaborately various lans for the leasing and draining of its ands, and receive reports from the college principals to the effect that everything is moving very satisfactorily indeed. For years past (says the "Age") there has been little pretence at launching out in the development of agricultural education on B modern lines. It has just been realised apparently by the council that something is is required of it in that direction. Now - blood is felt to be responsible for the new S notion. D...

Still Generous. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 11 June 1914
Still Generous. It was .her birthday, but he had r shed ofPto business with Just the ustial dutyrpeck at her hPttin face, and she was left to worry .:the day through, oppressed by c-the ; thought th?itahs ohce ardent love was waning. W\Vhen he returned at night, wished her:: "many happy returns,"! gave her a full-size hug; and placed a tiny pac ket in her hand, she knew that she had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and won her. "And 1 thought you'd forgotten all about it, Harold," she cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged expression took a front seat on her features. "Pipe cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, per," he said: "I knew they'd please you. You never did like me to use your hat-pins!"
MISS MARIE CORELLI ON HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 11 June 1914
MISS MARIE: CORELLI ON' HAPPINESS. Miss Marie Corelli addressed the P.S.A. in the Congregational Church at Stratford-on-Avon one Sunday. re cently-her subject being "The Secret of Happiness." The nineteenth, cen tury, she said, had gone for ever, and with all our progress and civilisation we had not come much nearer the real secret of happiness than our an cestors. The twentieth century found us still searching, asking the same old question-how to be happy? It had 'been declared that .we had lost the art of being happy in the old, simple wvays, and that the brightness and mirth which used to make our. Eng land "merrie Eng:and" had gone for ever. She thought there was some truth in this, and the reason was not far to seek--e thought.too much of ourselves and too little of our neigh bors. There was nothing so depress ing as, a con'templation of one's self. To be truly happy they must think of all the good they coiuld do, and all the love they could show to thelr*zeigh bors; be earnest...

Bloomfield Rees, M.L.C., v. Keith M'Allister, and the claim was for £10 for grazingsheep. The sum of £5 15s 6dhad been paid into court by the defendant in full settlement of the claim.

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE. IN - JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ishrmidshipman's adventure in Japan; Last New Year's Day a midshipman fronm ones of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a "ricksliaw. There was a keen breeze blowin'g, but it was prevented from howling merrily through the. middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if his face .were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way 'of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing 'proportions, which he puff ed ivith ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but: sternly conscientious Jap anese. policeman, who prided himself upo:i ,-his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobbyi saw that juvenile naval offi ci-'s 'glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and o...

The latest adventure, says the-Paris c'rrespondent of tihe "Daily Tele graph," of the sort owied its origin to a very comical inistake, At a parti cular P.risian office there ascended to the summit of ofne of these vehicles an 'individual of very comfortable di mensions, who was speedily immersed in the study "of his newspaper, a pretty --and well-dressed woman, many years his junior, and an elderly man, who looked like a -retired officer. The omnibus had hardly started when the old ,beau began to cast glances ex pressive of intense admiration at his faii -neighbor, and- although he. re ceived- no encouragement he contin ued his attempt to get up a flirtation with her quite unabashed.'Suddenly the lady rose to her feet, at the im minent. ris'2. of toppling over, and screamed out, "You ruf...

NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 11 June 1914
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. There is no merit in having a hard time in this life. There is no sin in merely having an easy time here. No man can confidently e- pect to be a gainer, in the next life, because he has suffered much in this life. Nor need any, person lack hope for the life beyond, because he has found joy and had pleasure in the present .life year by year. A life rightly spent may give joy in the present, and may have promise of the life that is to come. If we would hope for the future, let us use well the present.
