The last contest between these two gentlemen was close, and the present promises to be again evenly contested.

The poll opens at 8 o'elock and closes at 4 o'clock.

THE DEMORALISING SAFETY PIN. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

THE DEMORALISING SAFETY PIN. The safety pin is a most useful in vention, but one which, when abused by over-use, becomes not only a physi cal but a moral danger. The ardent follower of the safety pin is, without doubt, slovenly in her habits. She has put the safety pin into the place that ought to Ire occupied by the nee dle. And she has got into the habit of hustling into her clothes without examining them beforehand to see that they are all right as to buttons, hooks and eyes, etc. Why bother? The useful safety pin will set everv think right. She forgets tb?.t anything caught by a "safety" rarely hangs pro perly, and has a nasty habit of com ing -undone at the wrong moment. The moral danger of the safety pin comes in when she accustoms her lit tie girl to its use. She is really train ing the child in slovenliness, in wan cf orderliness,* and in disregard tr. physical danger. A child's clothes ought to be absolutely correct as to every detail of their arrangement. Every button, hoo...

THE HORSE DEALER. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

THE HORSE DEALER. By Jerome K. Jerome. I tell this story gladly, seeing that il has a' moral. He was a dealer in horses, and about his method he made no disguise. If you were a better judge of horse-flesh than he was, then you were welcome to "best" him; if, on the other hand, it happened that you were not, then he considered'him self at liberty to "best" you. Very young men pride themselves upon their knowledge of women and motor-cars. In my day it was women and horses. I thought I would go to this old rascal and pick up something cheap. But as we talked, there came to me the feeling that he knew more about this thing than I did. From the patient animal between us with its look of grave astonishment, I glanced to his small, twinkling eyes—by in. spiration seized mv only chance. "Practically speaking," I said, "1 know very little about horses. If you tell me this horse is the horse I want, that the price is a fair one, there's an end of the matter. I'll take it." He could not have b...

MR. JAMES BRYDON. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 21 August 1914

MR. JAMES BRYDON. Although it was well-lcnown that Mr James Brydon, farmer, of Carag Carag, had found it necessary to take up his residence as an inmate of the Mooroopna Hospital for some time past, it neverthe less came as a shock to residents of the district to learn that he had passed away at that institution at mid-day on Tues day last. The late Mr Brydon was an old and very highly respected resident of the district, having taken up his resi dence in Carag many years ago. He was a man of good, progressive ideas, and, recognising the great benefit to the farming community of direct railway communication to the seaboard, was one of the most earnest workers in the advo- cacy of the line to Stanhope through Rushworth, and although this route has been recommended, fate has decreed that hie shall not witness its construction. The late Mr Brydon was 69 years of age, and leaves a family of grown-up children to mourn his death. His wife pre- deceased him some few years, and his remains w...

Sudden Death at Arcadia. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 28 August 1914

Sudden Death at Arcadia. A very sudden death occurred at Arcadia on the evening of Thursday of last week (20th insb.), the victim being Mrs Isabella Goodwin, wife of Mr Frank Goodwin, of that place. From particulars to hand' it appears that Mrs Goodwin was in her usual good health and spirits when she retired to bed about 11 o'clock on Thurs day evening. Some time during the night her daughter (with whom she used to sleep) was-awakened by her mother's labored breathing. She at once awakened her father, who arrived on the scene ■ just about in time to see his wife expire. A post mortem examination, made by Dr Dovastoo, revealed the fact that death was due to heart failure. The deceased lady, who was well-known in the Arcadia district, was much esteemed and highly respected, a fact that was amply demon strated by the large number who followed the remains to their last resting place, the Longwood cemetery, on Saturday after noon last. A colonial inquiry, touching the death of Mrs Goodw...

MR TRENWITH AT MURCHISON. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 28 August 1914

MR THEN WITH AT MURCHLSON. Mr W. A, Trenwlth, 0110 of the six. Liberal caudidates for the Senate, ad dressed about 50 electors in the Mur chiaon Mechanics' Institute on Tuesday evening last. The chair was occupied by Mr P. J. Cooney, who briefly introduced oiie speaker. Mr Trenwith, wlio on rising was re ceivedwith applause, said it would be un becoming of him to commence a political address at the present time without refer m8 uthm,awfu!. happenings in the Old World. The polncal crisis in Australia had been almost completely overshadowed by the much graver crisis in which almost all the great nations of the world were implicated. He had no doubt that the small attendance that evening was due to the fact that the people's interest in poli Aui i ^a overshadowed by the war. Although Great Britain was implicated in the war they-her subjects—at least had cause for congratulation when they kuew that the Mother Country whs not the aggressor. Great Britain had been com pelled to enter into...

THE lUirrJrismt %bbtxixm rUBUSHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. ■FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1914. The Waranga Shire Council meets on Tuesday next, when applications will be 'received for the position of engineer and secretary to the Electric Lighting works at Rushworth. Lieutenant-Colonel Semmena, officer iu charge of the 6th Infantry Battalion Australian Imperial Expeditionary Force, visits Rushworth on Friday next prior to leaving for the seat of the war. The Rushworth volunteers will accompany Lieutenant-Colonel Semmena and some sort of celebration will probably be ar ranged for the occasion. The rain which fell on Sunday last, al though not one quarter as much as could have been wished, will nevertheless do a vast amount of good. From the re cords the fall would appear to have been pretty general. It was of a very light nature, consequently every drop soaked in, and next morning bo*h crops and grass had a much refreshed looking ap pearance, At the Rushworth Post offioe . the register showed 22 ...
