"HORRIBLE LANGUAGE." FROM A MAN IN THE BAR. HIS REMEDY FOR A SEVERE COLD. AND THE SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 1 June 1914

"HORRIBLE LANGUAGE." FROM A MAN IN THE BAR. HIS REMEDY FOR A SEVERE COLD. AND THE SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. Constable V Wolfenden, the watch-house keeper, was at his desk at the police station on Friday morning, serenely contemplating a mound of correspondence and a portly tome that lay before him, when the telephone bell rang vigorously. Sensation was scented, so hastily slipping out of his chair, he inquired "Who's there ?" and answer came that there was a man in the Farmers' Arms Hotel using "horrible. language." It was a lady's voice that thrilled-should it be "trilled ?"--fhrough the wire; and the watch house keeper lost no time in covering the dis tance nup High.street. Arrived at the hostelry, Mrs Cavanagb, the licensee, explained the eituation to the constable, who, glancing through the side door, saw a man making an effort to escape from the rear of the pre mises. To arrest him was an easy undertaking, and he proved to be an elderly man well known in the district, well ed...

"MIGHTY ENGLAND." AN AMERICAN WRITER'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 1 June 1914

"MIGHTY ENGL AND." AN AMERICAN WRITER'S. OPINION. FROM THE "MINNEAPOLIS OURNAL,' We haven't read the book and don't intend to, didn't note the autrhor's name and will not en quire, but the title, "Mighty Eng land," commends itself to nus. Whether ones hates England or loves her, if one has perception one will be aware of the truth that "mighty" hits England, as "'glori ous" does France, as "beautiful" does Italy, as "studioue" does Ger many, as "proud" does Spain. Mighty is exactly what England is -mighty tyrant as her enemies believe, or mighty righteousness as her own leaders proclaim. If England went down in blood and shame to-morrow, the nine centuries she has lived since Hasting's fateful day would com pass one epic of might that old Rome cannot match, nor any other in all the tide of time. For a hundred years in the Middle Ages the English desolated France. For a hundred years they harried Spain. They overthrew Napoleon. They conquered India. They built an Empire of more peopl...

A NIGHT OUT IN THE GOULBURN VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914

A NIGHT OUT IN TEE GOUL BURN VALLEY. ;Bv E.F., SHEPPARTON. I found her resting in a field At gloaming, as the ehurch bells pealed Far down the Guolburn Vale. The moon was coy and oan away Behind a veil of misty spray; The stars were dimmed and pale. With stealthy step I slowly crept, I thought, perhaps, there eweelly slept A maiden fair as day: As I advanced she quickly stirred, And turned from me, her form was blurred; She stepped a pace away. I played to her on strings of gold A haunting melody of old, While night-birds fitted thro' the air. I sang to her as lovers sing Until I broke each golden string, And cried out in despair. Throughont the night I tried in vain A glimpse of her fair face to gain; But she was shy as mountain fasn. I flang my broken harp to earth, And waited till the dawn gave birth Unto the smiling morn. Old Sol rose up in all his pride, A vulgar bird I then espied; He laughed at me and wagged his head. There and then I made a vow I'd never woo another cow, But...

UP-TO DATE KIALLA EAST. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914

UIP-TO DATE KIALL& EAST. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser."J EiR,-There are some glaring inaccuracies in the paragraph which appeared in your issue of Monday May 25th, under the aboveheading. You say at present the duties of postmaster are kindly undertaken by a lady who keeps a a retail business establishment. I may say that I am actually the responsible person, though my wife kindly undertakes the work in my absence. My wife keeps no retail business establishment whatsoever, but is otherwise en gaged in household duties when not attending to the post office. Your informant is also in error in his description of the office arrangements. The letters when received from Shepparton, are carefully sorted and placed in a colonial oven on garden fence not more than twelve feet from the front door, whence they are taken by residents in calling. I can appreciate the subsequent sarcasm to the full, seeing that you may have in mind similar aBrangements existing in cities and towns, w...

SHEPPARTON TO BRITAIN AND BACK. RAPID PRAVELLING—IN METAPHOR. THE REV. J. C. HERRING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914

SHEPPARTON TO BRITAIN AND BACK. RAPID PRAVELLING--IN METAPHOR. THE REV, J, O. HERRING. The lines having been cast away on Wednesday evening, Cap tain the Rev J C Herring, who was standing on the bridge, tdle graphed to the engine-room, and almost immediately after the steamship "Public Hall" moved away from the High-street wharf, where, drawn up in a circle, was the Model Band, playing well and merrily under Bandmaster R M'Caskill. The vessel turned her bows in a northerly direction, and the passengers on board were over joyed, for the skipper (who had come especially from Echuea, where the mighty Murray flows), promised to take them to France and the British Isles, and to com plete the voyage there and back in a couple of hours, though three years ago-when civilisation and the methods of rapid travelling were not so far advanced as now it took him nine months to accom plish a similar feat. His voyage was made in the P. and O. Company's mail steamer, Mold avia. The vessel haiing com...

PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914

PERSONAL. A very pleasing funetion took place at the band room of the Shepparton Model Band, on Mon day night, when a number of sup. porters met, and, during ans inter val in the practice, presented Mr " Bob" M'Caskill, the bandmaster with a fine leather music case, as a mark of appreciation of the good work done by him in advancing the music of the members of the band. Mr J M'Menemin (drum major), who made the presenta tion, spoke eulogistically of Mr M'Caskill's ability as a bandmaster and the great confidence the mem. hers had in him as a conductor. Mr M'Caskill, in a neat short speech, thanked the donors for their very useful present.

PRESTIGE OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914

PRESTIGE OF MEMBERS. "'THIS fellow is wise enonuh to play the fool; and to do that well required a kind of wit," said Shakespeare; and no doubt Mr Hlggs now realises the truth of the utterance. He removed the Mace from thhe table ot the House, and hid it under one of Ahe-benches On Thursday he apologised, and his action may be dismissed as a foolish jest, borne of all-night sit tinge; but those sittings were due to the display of narrow party spirit, and led to acts much more serious than the prank of which Mr Higgs confessed himself the per petrator. To tamper with the Speaker's paoers, to lock doors which open into a chamber in which a division may be taken at any time, are offences the gravity of which was admitted by the Iead ers of both oarties. It is worth while to consider that week's hap penings and the record of the pre sent Parliament as it affects the prestige of members. Members of the two chambers were returned just a year ago; they have accom plished nothing. An Electo...
