"IF." A New Kipling Poem. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
"IP." A New Kipling Poem. Here is a commonsense talk to men by Kudyard Kipling in metrical prose. It is entitled "If." The fol lowing are a few of tlie verses: If you keep your head when all about you Are losing their's and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubtings, too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can dream-and not make dreams your master; If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth, you've spoken Twisted by knaves, to make a trap for fools., Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools. Your's is the Earth and everything that's in it, And-which ' is more-you'll be a Man, my son!

Boxing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Boxing. Joe Russell, the Queen slander, who holds the featherweight champion ship of Australia, met Frank Fitz john at the Stadium on Saturday night. The title was not involved, Russell being many pounds outside the featherweight limit, and he look ed nearly a Btone heavier than the local lad. The fight went the full 20 rounds, and Russell won on points. A great many of the spectators hooted lustily when Snowy Baker, the referee, pointed to Russell as the winner, but liis decision was a good one. There was not much in it, but any surplus points there were belonged to the Queenslander. Russell was too strong for Fitz john, who slipped about a good deal in the ring, which was greasy after a shower. The fight was, for the most part, uninteresting, as there was too much .of t^e American "in" fighting about it. Each landed some good punches on the other, and midway through the contest the Queenslander's right eye was badly opened, and it was not improved by Fitzjohn's attentions in the s...
Cricket [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

Sydney replied with 158, of which Finneran got 42, and Mulligan 41 not out, and following on lost 8 for 95, so that the Uni's narrowly missed winning outright. Gregg took five Sydney wickets for 12 runs in the second innings. Petersham are renowned for the close finishes they figure in, whether winning or losing. They defeated Balmain on the first innings by two runs. It was a close thing, for, after Petersham had put 147 on the board, Balmain repl...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
NOTES. A great crowd was attracted to Rosehill on Saturday for the open ing day of the club's double-barrel ed meeting, which is to conclude this week-end. The attraction was the Rosehill Cup, on which there was a sweep, and the prospect of seeing a number of Doncaster and Sydney Cup candidates under silk. The bookmakers had a royal day, two of the winners being at 14 to 1; two others at 12 to 1, and two winners were second favourites. Some great racing was witnessed. Hot Air, who should have won the Flying Handicap at Canterbury a few weeks ago, only for being left at the post, annexed the Trial Stakes, 7 furlongs, with ease. He carried 7.12, and ran the distance in good time-1.28. Hot Air is by Ayr Lad die (imp.) from Miss Grafton, and this was his first win. Hymeneal (8.3), was second, and Flaneur, a brother to Kuringai and Safrano who had not started for over 12 months-was third. The imported horse Sandbath, who has been solidly supported for the Doncaster, was served up at 5 to...
Yarralumla Shire. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Yarralumla Shire. The fact of the Federal capital be ing in the Yarralumla Shire has caused a proposal to be made to annex the balance outside the Fede ral area to adjoining shires. But the Yarralumla shire objects to this, and a deputation told the Minister for Works so. Even with the loss of the Federal area, the shire, they said, was as big as many others in the State. Mr. Griffith told the deputationists that he would endeavour to get some scheme which would meet their views. He would then give; them some small special grant to enable the shire to carry on, but he would not say what he would d.o later when bringing in the amendments of the Shires Act.
DONCASTER AND CUP BETTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
DONCASTER AND CUP BETTING. Blairgour still maintains his posi tion at the head 6f the quotations for the Doncaster, being a couple of points less than Wirrilla and Bright Laddie, both of whom are at exact ly double figures. Two points away Malthusian and Nuwara Eliya are on the same mark, Flavinius following at a further interval of two points, Two points longer than Flavinius are Sandbath, Desert Rose, Broadsword, Electric Wire, Lager, Miss Corelli, and Royal Merv., and at an inter val of four points follow Full Sail, Nangar, Sequarious, Safrano, Tor quay, and Captain White. For the Sydney Cup The Parisian is favourite. At this stage a favour ite for a Sydney Cup should' be at double figures, but the Australian Cup winner is only at half those odds. Two points away Trafalgar is a firm second favourite, and Apple Pie and Byplay are five points longer than Trafalgar. Another two points away follow Bridge, Eric, Electric Wire, and Bright Laddie. Another two points separate Patronatus,...

The whole of the alderman present spoke in support of the motion, which was carried unanimously, it being agreed that an absent alderman should have an opportunity of expressing his senti ments on the matter at next meeting.

Vehicle Licences. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Vehicle Licences. At Bibbenluke Shire Council this vexed question was again discussed,, on the reading of a letter from Mr. A. H. Davis, drawing attention to tlie inconvenience and expense incur red by anyone wanting a vehicle li cense to run in more than one shire. Under the present regulations it was necessary to obtain a license for each shire or municipality in which the vehicle was plying. If he wanted to go from one municipality to another he would need four licenses, and each involved a fee and further let tering on the trap. He asked if the council could move in this matter to obtain an amendment of the ordi nances so that one license would hold good in all shires and munici palities. The President (Cr. G. Murphy) said a license should be granted in the shire or municipality in which the licensee is resident, and should hold good throughout the State. The council carried the following motion, viz.:-"That the matter be referred to the Shire Conference, and asked that licenses...
AUTOMOBILIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
AUTOMOBILIA. Judge not ail auto by its smell; all comparisons are odorous. j± tack in the tyre is as a thorn in the flesh: both are tiresome. It is a short ride that hath no mending. . All does not go that glitters. An auto is not -without odour save in "its own front seat. . Say not, "We shall return at five"; ye may return at. sixes and sevens. Oils well that ends -well. Approach railroads . warily, lest they lead tliee to heaven. To speed is human; to be caught is-fine! The Railway Commissioners have purchased a car for departmental work, which is of 20 h.p. The car was only purchased after it had suc cessfully negotiated a severe trial run to Bathurst, Tarana, Jenolan Caves, and Oberon, and it climbed some severe gradients on the trip.
Maintenance Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Maintenance Men. The Tomki Shire Council, at its .last meeting, received a deputation from the maintenance men, asking for an increase in wages from 7s 6d to 8s Cd a day, owing to the increas ed cost of living. After considerable discussion, in which some of the coun cillors said the road men were well paid, had easy times, and were in a better position than many men on the land, who, even if they got only 5s a day, had to pay taxes tov/ards the increase, it was decided to grant an extra 6d a day, but to reduce the number of maintenance men from 14 to 12. At Murrangal Shire Council's last "ftiefcting a Tetter was read from the Shires' Association, in reply to in quiry from the council as to whether it had the power to erect a residence, to be occupied by a maintenance man. The Association drew council's at tention to section 179 of the Act, and the council are of opinion that they have the power to erect the build ing.
Noxious Weeds. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Noxious Weeds. A certain council recently decided to prosecute a number of persons for neglecting to destroy noxious weeds on their properties, but unfortunate ly for the council they are likely to escape, for the present, at any rate. The solicitor for the council has recommended that the prosecu tions be abandoned owing to an ir regularity in the council's procedure. This is to be regretted, as "one year's seeding means ten years' weeding,"" and uie council must now go through the process, of notification as the law provides, over again, but in order, this time.

H. Doust), is to be complimented on this satisfactory result. No ratea have been written off by the council during the year 1910."
Permission to Build. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911
Permission to Build. Considerable delay and annoyance is frequently caused to persons about to build through them not giving rea sonable notice to the council of their intention to do so, and submit plans * and specifications for the council's approval. Ord. No. 70 applies to all councils who have acquired the power of section 10!) (xliii.) of the Act,, which is for the regulation of the erection of buildings, etc. Clause 5 provides that the council may ap prove of the plans or specify the al terations which they consider should' be made in the same as to height, design, structure, materials, build ing line, sanitation, or the propor tion of the allotment which shall be occupied by the building to be erec ted. The council lias to do this, and how can they be expected to do so if the plans are only lodged (as is frequently the case), a few hours oefore the meetings take place, sometimes it happens that the coun cil will have before it several plans and specifications to decide upon a...
