CHAPTER XI. A LONELY RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

CHATTER XI. A LONELY RIDE. "It was a pity, too! » said the rec tor, genuine sympathy in his voice. "A 'pity, Doa, my poor fellotv- All your work, all your peril, for nothing! I never arraign tlio Fates, but it does seem to me as if, in your case, destiny had been a little over-hard with yon jet-hunters ..'.'.That, clear Mr- Laugtou,'' replied Don cheerfully.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosino.") Sombre . dressing is still the ruling note. Though not actually in inotirn , ing, not, anyhow, in tbc dress .sense, we aiv bound to conform to tbo times. Probably the averager woman never looks better dressed than when quiet ly. And then there is always the chance of a relieving touch, which, indeed, is good taste. The very sedate ensemble, something dark,' even though rich,, is relieved by a touch of red on bodice and hat, and at once everything is rea sonably vivid and decidedly attractive. One of the most striking of winter styles is a -tunic with pinafore front. That is to say, the bodice, section, car ried to coat-depth and fitting, lias a panel-l'rout with shoulder sections through the -'V" of neck, and this looks like a pinafore less the exten sion. It reveals in walking the under skirt, which- otherwise appears below the tunic for, say. Gin. The bSlice and the. underskirt are in contrast, dark against light, and swathed around the hips; "but broke...

NEW ZEALAND CHEESE [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

'NEW ZEALAND CHEESE Tho iuliJdt of checsc in New Zc-a'.anrl this suu«sir .is the largest on record., This is satisfactory from tho consum ers' point of view, as an addition to the aggregate supplies oi: cheese is de sirable, from tho fact 'that Canada within recent years has exported grad ually decreasing quantities, although the amount shipped is still of import ant dimensions, and exercises a material influence upon tho general position. Canada, however, is enjoying a period of great. progress and prosperity, aucj the country's population is increasing so rapidly that it is becoming apparent that the supply of cheese for the home requirements, and the maintenance of exports to the United Kingdom, can not bo kept up to the same letfel as in the past._ Tho outcome is that this country is receiving less cheese from Canada than formerly. It is to bo hoped that; New Zealand, in view of tho altered circumstances, will con tinue to increase its production or cheese. The erection of plant...

RECRUITING. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

RECRUITING. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). Sir,-I have had several paper cut tings sent, some giving reasons why the farmer's sons should not go and fight for their farms. They are shortly to the effect that a farmer can do better, and fight the better fight by staying at home and growing food for the soldier ; some writers in the para graphs are rather abusive in the re marks to think we should expect the farmers to go. Well, Mr Editor, we could all find an excuse for ' not going.' The worker could say "I mu3t stop and make clothes for the troops." The squatter could say "I must stop and grow the wool." The banker "could say I must stop and regulate the money inarket otherwise there will be a financial crisis, and the coward can say "I am going to get married, and if conscription comes I will be exempt." and so each one could manufacture an excuse for not bearing his fair share of the burden forced on us by a relent less and unscrupulous foe. The time has gone past for fine speec...

HEIt DAINTY SPEECH. There was ono young woman in tho box party at the theatre who took no part in the noisy clatter and gigglo With her gaze fixed upon the :.tage, she watched the progress of the play, indifferent to the gaiety around her, except that her dclicate, aristocratic, finely-chiselled fixtures bore a look of weariness, and a scornful smile curled her lips. At last, however, she turned her head slowly and looked at the other mem bers of the party. Thoti she spoke to the elderly matron sitting at Jier> side.

ADVANCE GIPPSLAND. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 13 August 1915

ADVANCE GIPPSLAND. THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). Sir,-The article in a recent issue, entitled "Advance Gippsland," should meet with the hearty endorsement of all well-wishers of our district and the whole pnvince of Gippsland. Our Vic torian legislators have failed to pro perly appreciate such a precious asset as Gippsland. Now is the time to remedy this long enduring evil, but it cannot be e(Te:tually"don3 unless Gipps land people themselves display vigor and determination. There should be a closer union amongst the municipalities and other public bodies of Gippsland. The Powlett River District Pastoral, Agricultural and Horticultural Society seems to be rising to the occasion. Besides being capable of yielding many valuable products, Gippsland possesses many holiday resorts and beauty spots. What have the Gippsland people done to advertise these facts. If Kilcunda were in the Riverir.a or near the Blue Mountains holiday-makers would'spend much money to get there, and there are othe...
