100 WELL KEOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 28 October 1914
100 WELL KiiOWH TO NE£U AN "AD." This idea that you have lived so lopq In town that everybody knows you anJ you don't need >o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as It is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to giow from mere nothing to treat concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store i; the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon yonr country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with a general local circulation, ...

Sympathetic Feeling. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 28 October 1914
Sympathetic Fesiing. Anion.; the lar;re number of pjopb arojnd Melbourne, and in many congested centrcs, there is a s'.rong a-.t - j^rm-.n feeling growing. and should anything happe.i :o the troopships on the way to their destination, there is a danje-r that thi3 feeling will become more pronounced. Under th? circumstances, itwillbemich wiser for those -whe'se patriotic sympathies are in accordance with those at war with England to refrain from voicing their feel ings in public. There miiy be a few in this district who have been so indiscreet as to voice their •sympathies. It would be much better in the future if they set a double guard upen their tongues. In Meliourn? recently, two men pave expression to their feelings in front of others who did not sympathise with them. In a mo ment a crowd had gathered, and but for the timely appearance of the police the men would have been roughly handled. The police advised the men to be more dis creet and to get to their homes as quickly as po...

Saluting, the Flag. ' In the reports laid before the Minister of Education regarding the alleged disloyalty of a State school teacher in one of the coun try districts, the complaint was made that he did not direct that the British flag should be saluted by the scholars, according to the practice followed in other schools.
