Sydney, roused his audience to enthusiasm. He Intimated that in all probability at an early date he would retire from political life. >He was deeply sensible of the confidence reposed (n him by the electors over the long period'during which he had repre sented them in the Assembly. He had discharged his duty to the best i of his ability. Stress of business, ' however, combined with indifferent health, promised to interfere with | his work as a politician.

Wit and Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 November 1914
Wit and Wisdom. . Never believe what a woman tells you or what a man doesn't. Ready-made love is always ob tainable. but It wears best made to measure. Women love strength In a man —except when they get it. One half of love is forgetting what the other half does. -The man who says he wants to do the right thing by a girl gener ally begins by doing the wiongone. A good sportsman is generally a poor lover. Two women together will never agree unless they are discussing another woman. ^ If woman Is the sherry of life then love must be the bitterB. If matrimony is a hallmark then lots of the couples you meet now adays must be merely plated. A man's good intentions to one woman are sometimes spoilt by his bad attention to somebody else. Love isn't all the map, as some people think it is. It is just a little island of make believe sur rounded by a whole sea of trouble. L,ove's right of way takes no account of private property. The line o£ least resistance is the one to the altar. What with...

Dookie Agricultural College. REPORTS FOR OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 November 1914
Dookie Agricultural College. REPORTS FOR OCTOBER. Mr. Pye, tbc Principal 01 the Dookie Agricultural College, inti mates (hat very severe drought conditions still continue, although owing, to ample provision having been made, there is on hand good stocks of foddtr in the form of hay, ensilage, straw aud grain, Sufficient to last until next season. It is anticipated that the average yield of wheat over about 300 acres will be about 7 bushels per acre. Should good rains fall in February it would encourage the sowing of oats, peas and rape, to be eaten off in April ;fud May. In such case it would be well to force the growth by giving a dressing of superphos phate ox not less than 561bs. to the acre, and up to 1 cwt.' The oats would ultimately be allowed to come away as crop, whilst the rape would give a successiotfof grazing. The cost of seed peas would prevent their general use, especially as, if once grazed off, they do not come away again like rape aud oats do. Pea hay is a fine stan...

Mr Carlisle's Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 November 1914
Mr Carlisle's Campaign. Mr J. j. Carlisle addressed 42 electors at the Shire Hall on Satur day night, the sparseness being no -doubt due to the fact of it being a ■trading night, then the beat : but, perhaps, greater than all, an apathy on the part of the electors that could be felt. ,(The people could pretty well guess' what they would " learn" if they essayed forth to do a griddle in a stuffy hall, and pre ferred the open air.) Cr Matbieson. (President of the Shire) presided, and introduced the Candidate. Mr Carlisle opened his address by referring to the general .apathy displayed by the electors in regard to State politics, w'.iich, he thought was largely due to the war and the drought and the fact that the recent Federal elections bad taken up so much attention of the people. Regarding the war he had no doubt about the issue. The people of this country did not want to know what it meant to become the vassal of German militarism. The present Government's pol icy, he was glad to s...

Financial Aspect. MEN AND MONEY AUTHOR ISED. v " Continuing bis speech in the House of Commons in as-king for a credit of ^225,000,000, Mr Asquith said that the loan . of £30,250,000 to the Dominions would not be an ultimate charge on tbe exchequer of the United King dom. "The actual additional cost to Great Britain of carrying on Ihe war, apart from "normal expendi ture," be continued, "amounts to somewhere between .£900,000 and £1,COO,000 daily. I do not say we shall kepp it there, but on tbe whole I do not think anybody will say the sum exceeds expectations I cannot "hold out any hope that during the war it is likely to be diminished. I purposely confined myself to a brief statement because it^is in the highest decree necessary to appeal to the patriotism and de votion of the House and the country. " These proposals represent the minimum which the Government think it is entitled to ask .in per haps the greatest emergency in which we have ever been placed." (Cheers.) Mr Walter Lon...

THE Benalla indepeiKknt. POBLISKKH ON TDKSDAV3 AND .FRIDAYS "Stands close to all But IcaiiK on none." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1914. 3 " ELECTRIC LIGHTING. There appears to be an idea ex tant that the Shire Council, at leait the Central hiding members, aie endeavoring to. thiik an obvious responsibility in connection with the electric lighting question. We hope not, for this is a very serious matter. Undue haste in coining to a decision would be • foolish iu the extreme, while, on the other hand, to adopt a craven, tinkering'policy, would be suicidal. At the la>t meeting of the Council it was left to the Central Riding members to go through a budget of electricil pabulum supplied from all points of the compass, and haviug sized up the,.whole situation, this sub-com mittee had to furnish a-report to their fello\v member's. It would be for the Council to say what the next step should be. Perhaps a proposal to place the best offer the Gas Company might have 'to make side by side with th...
