Father's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Father's Dilemma. . A parent's life is one long responsi bility. It's a wonder, that so many of the genus discharge their duties so ac ceptably. A writer has discovered another parental problem; or perhaps he merely calls attention to one which many fathers have discovered for themselves. "How's the family?" one inquired of a happily married man. "Well, my children are at a diffi cult age now." "Difficult? 'Why, they've all passed the measles and teething stage, have ,they not?" "Long ago. But you don't know a father's troubles. My children are at the age where if I use slang my wife says I'm setting a bad example, and if I speak correctly, the kids think I'm a back number. Which would you do?"

Which Leg? [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Which Leg? In a small town in the West of Scotland the town clerk, wlio was a bit of a "character," had the mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway ac cident. As a mark of appreciation and es teem for his long services, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with an artificial leg, which they did as soon as he was sufficiently re covered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was unfor tunate enough to have his other leg fractured in a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neigh bor, was overheard saying— "It's a grey bad business for Paul, puir man; but is't his ain leg or the leg that belangs to the toon that's broken?"
Noble Soul. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Noble Soul. "I was a fool ever to marry you!" sobbed Mrs. Winks. "Now, my dear," said Winks, no :bly, "I cannot permit you to take the blame for that. It was I who was the fool for ever asking you. The mis take was not yours, but mine." The lords of creation are prone to | look with contemptuous eyes upon a ij woman who is careless in matters of | dress, and the woman who thinks to s silence them or alter their opinion by jj a wilful or courageous show of "inde pendence" in the mode or manner of her attire, will learn all too soon that she has but earned their contempt and wrought no advantage to herself. Within the limits of her sphere in life, such as all the world is willing to concede to her, it is her right, | as it is her duty and pleasure, to avail : herself of dress to add to her per I sonal appearance and attractions, and ' to help win and hold the regard or . admiration of an whose good opinion ( may be desirable. Time and circum : stances, place and surroundings, must alw...
False Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
False Economy. He felt it would "be extravagance to call in a man for a little job like rep acing a broken window-pane, so he took the measurements very ac curately and went to the local shop to buy the glass. "Quite a simple job," said the shop man; "in fact, a child could do the thing in a few minutes." An hour later he presented himself once more at the -shop, the proprietor of which greeted him cheerfully with the query. "Same size, I suppose, sir."

Advertising Religion. PRIEST AS INSURANCE AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
Advertising Religion. Priest as Insurance: Agent. At a meeting of debating section of-the. Aldwych Club,, London, the Rev. Father Bernard Vaughan spoke quaintly on the question, " Should Religion be advertised?" Advertising, he is reported to have said, had come to stay, and it was at once a science and an art. If they ask him to define it, he should say it was the art of arresting atten tion-, and telling men where best to get what most they wanted. They wanted to advertise what the human race stood immediately in need of, the things that were worth while. He had seen enough to show him that the . profession of advertising was one which was going to exer cise a tremendous influence in this country. There was a grea!: re sponsibility upon it, and they needed to take care that it was worked on right and legitimate ' lines.' ," He went once to preach for a French priest, who said to'him, "I am so pleased, indeed, I am enchan ted,: and everybody knows you are coming, because I have bla...
A Dastardly Act. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914
A Dastardly Aet. To the Editor. •'Sir,—There has been . much talk about prohibiting the use of the simple but deadly little weapon, the pea rifle, but at the same time little or no action appears to bo taken. This particular rifle in the hands of a careful sportsman is, none too safe, especially among timber or scrub, as one is surprised how the bullet will " g'.ance" on touching anything; but when in possession cf careless individuals it ie simply a menace to all concerned, as the following will show :—A fine milking cow was shot dead (last Sunday at that) on the Ovens Vale Estate, the unfortunate beast when found in the evening being still quite warm. Upon examination the cause of death was easily found—a small bullet in the forehead. Now Sir, this could just as easily have been a human being as the innocent beast, and it is high time something is done to protect the pub lic from such a menace. If the perpetra tor of this particular act had a spark of manhood in him, he would comp...

On Wed., 17th, a meeting was held in the Library Hall, another . meet ing having been held in the after noon on the ground and a site hav ing been chosen in Mr Newton's : , paddock. Cr H. S. Milne presided at the evening meeting. The com mittee recommended an area of ab.but 15 acres, with a frontage to . the main road of niue chains. Mr Newton's previous offer was that he would give 10 to, 15 acres with right-of-way into the recreation re serve in the paddock at £20 per acre, but as the committee now de sired nine .chains; frontage to the main road he asked the increased 1 price of £22 10/ per acre.

LADIES LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 2 July 1914
' _ .... ' LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. We are in the throes of the ball season now. . Night after night the big halls in the city or one or 'other, of the suburbs are full of happy dancers, and the season, so far, is proving immensely enjoyabie. The civic ball at St. Kilda is always one of the events of the year, and that held last week was no exception. They had a glorious color scheme for the decorations, and with nigh on a thousand of our elite, with the. women folk in their most elaborate and ex . pensive frocks, it was a fairy sight • for wondering eyes to linger on. Hebrew representation in St. Kilda is a strong one, and as usual there were many comely Jewesses among the guests. Hawthorn also had a most successful function, and likewise Prah ran. None of the new dances were included at the mayoral functions, but they have been much in evidence at other public and semi-private gather ings. The old South Yarra Skating Rink is taking on another lease of life under ...
