One Word in. Time, Is better than two afterwards. A chance of profit by another's ex perience. It is a strange thing how people will gut away an opportunity until too late. Its only little things that go to make up our every day life; the trouble is we don't pay suffi cient attention to them. Backache is a little thing. Sometimes it .comes after a hard day's work or a cold. 'It will pass off," you say, "itn only the result . of over-taxing the back. You call it backache but it really is kidney ache. This woman has learned to appreciate whet delay means. Mrs E. 'Thompson, William-street, Seymour; says: For a long time I have been a martyr.to backache, and at times-the pains were. so great I could hardly get about, and-when ever I stooped my back felt like breaking. I always felt tired and langu.d, and could get 1no rest at night. I went on suffering in that way, and nothing 1 took seemed to do me any good. At last I tried Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and after a few doses I knew I h...
OUR GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
OUR GARDENS., (By Mr.: C. Bogue Ln lan, ft tih Government 'Journal of Agric l ture.) THE VEGETABLE GARDEN. - Get manure together that it may be in readiness for. dressing ground for autumn and winter crops. A pit* or shady corner will conserve all the properties of manure and rubbish, and insure a larger quantity of valu able material than where it is simp. ly-thrown into a heap and allowed to get dry. All the cabbage lamily, celery, potatoes, and quick-growing salad plants will stand rank manure, but it pays best in the, long run to get rid of the first fermentation in the pit, as where fresh manure is placed in cool soil it is liable to sour the mass, and prevent free and fine quality growth. Further sowings should be made of cabbage, cauli flower, savoy, and Brussels sprouts. Also lettuce and silver -beet; this is a very hardy vegetable, and apart from the green and the white spine of its leaves furnishing two excellent dishes for the table, it is a most profitable green foon-for...
THE HARDY FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
THE HARDY FLOWER GARDEN. Seasonable operations vary accord. ing to the size and style of the gar den and resources and ability ol the owner. The vast majority: are. iot -really interested in gardening pure and simple, as is illustrated by the surroundings of the average house, but have a liking for some particular flower or plant. What we really want is neat and pleasing sur. :oundings for our country and sub urban homes, and these are secured only where a few fine shade..giving Ites or shrubs or climbing plants yield bowers of shade. Also a strip of fresh green lawn and rrecping things to clothe and beautify our ugly walls of corrugated iron or tough wood fencing. Outbuildings, too, should as far as possible be sur rounded" with follage plants of dif fcrent forms so as to add to the size and comfort of the pleasaunce. At this season ohr main concern, is to keep things green ana fresh. It is well nigh impossible to give too much water to ordinary garden plants whCere the land is wel...
WANTED—ENCOURAGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
WANTED-ENCOURAGERS. - Wh'ile only the very frw read poetry, or really care for it there are count less thousands to wh0om a smilo and the fitting word at the fitting moment would mean just everything. And they so seldom get it,. I do not think' wo encourago one nlother very much. And the trend of tho :jie, to use one of the catch phrases of the day, is dis tinctly discouraging. It is a sort of toes end hustle and push, in which the easily discouraged will undoubtedly lag behind. Very high up among the people who do things would I place the one who encourages out of pure kind ness and a desire to help. Mistakes are made, of course, and some quite 'rseless and futile effort may be gloei fled for theo moment; but where is the ultimate harm? Let us have meio encouragers to relieve the greyness of life.

QUARRELS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
QUARRELS. We can forgive a man who hates a quarrel if he quarrels hardly or eron unfairly; he is so unused to the game that he cannot be expected to play it kindly when it is forced upon him; he is emlbittered by his natural anger that he shoull Iob forced to quarrel at all. But the quarrelsome man who quarrels with a purposo is as base as the cardsharper. He profits by the weaknesses of others on a pretence of sharing them. In fact, he is a mart that even thie most quarrelsome wouli never quarrel with twice, any more than a -gambler will knowingly play twice with a cardsharper; for in i.srelling, as in gaombhng, there i>. ole law that shouni nevelr be broken just because both are rather la wliess pursuits. and that is the law of fair play .--'The Times."

DEATH AND WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE. "Hara-kiri," the one resource of the suffragettes, turns out to boe their s:trongcst? wealno. Englishmen art not so brutish that they can bear the sight of martyred ionuoncc. The heroic suicide of a lady of wealth and station on the public doorstep of the Derby is 1oorlth a wilderness of tiros, and the cross that was borne beforeC her body at the great funeral was : more vsictorious symbol than tli hammer. Militancy is only successful hi so far as it brings suffering to tile militants. If this were a real war, one could say the greater their casual ties the nearer their triumph? In war you minace lthe .enemy writh death. Mrs. Panklhurst is menacing the enemy with her own death.-"English Re

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 22 May 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From Our Special Correspondent). rCith she faluure of efforts to ireaso by immigration the population if Australia to something hke what Is needed, it should be natural to expect that more attention be given. to con serve the home-grown product. in spite ci periodical disclosures in con nection with infant mortality, calculat ed to awaken the indignation and com passion of the most callously indifferent oitizon, there is still a wasto of valu able child life that is worse than cri:ni nal. The ignorance and neglect which loses for the State the lives of many infants born under the conventional conditions, is deplorable. There* is no reason at all why mothers, young or otherwise, should not be acquainted with what is required to raise healthy children. Education upon the rignt lines is readily enough obtainable, but such is the indiference, or laziness, or general lack of initiative, that hun dreds of infants which.have the right to live and which are needed to fill ...

TALLAROOK. Empire Day at Tallarook was celebrated in a most enthusiastic and pleasant manner. The resi dents turned out en masse,.and were joined by country folk who attended to pat ticipate in the festivities and to help to amuse the children. One of the principal features in the gathering was the way the ladies turned out and worked in order to make the demonstration a success. The pleasing and effective manner in which they attended to the cater ing and the effective way it was served, the wants of young and old being, well supplied, was a credit to them. And they did it all too so cheerfully and so willingly. We only wish we knew their names. The gathering assembled in the public hall.
