THE FOOTBALL SEASON (To the Editor "Kerang New Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
THE FOOTBALL SEASON (To the Editor "Kerang New Times.',) Sir,-Being interested in football, I feel curious as to what kind of compe tition will take place in KeIlng this forthcoming season. One hears various suggestions such as an association on a large scale, taking in Swan Hill, Border, Pyramid and Cohuna. This sounds very grand, and would probably pay, but who is going guarantee? Personally I do not approve of spending time and money travelling for sport when equally in teresting. results can be obtained 'withl Cut. I would suggest that Kerang teams be limited to a radius of say two to five miles in order to reduce their strength to. that of surrounding district teams, viz., Koondrook, Kerang East,- Macorna and Wandella, which would have a rea snoable hope of encouragement and suc ,coss. I am supported in this contention by several leadihg players in Kerang. On the other hand should the Kerang clubs unite and expect competition they will, I feel sure, be sadly mistaken ana disApp...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
At the last meeting of the members of the Kerang Fire Brigade held at the fire station the prizes won by the team at the Bendigo demonstrition were handed over to the respedtive winners. In speaking on the subject some of the members expressed keen disappointment at the indifference as to the brigade's success or failure evinced by the public of Kerang. At Eaglehawk and- other places the civic authorities and other public functionaries joined in making a big public demonstiftion to celebrate the successes of their teams, but in Keipng, though our team pulled off the sixes trophy, an important event, not \a move was made to give public recognition of the team's prowess This is certainly very disheartening to the members, who freely give up their time to hard practice to acquire proficiency in saving the property of--the public. They do not only give their time in practicing and extinguishing fires, but suffer personal loss in damage to their clothing by .nud and water. When they save...

A street quarrel between two young men one night in February, 1896, at. tracted the attention of the police constable on the beat, and when they separated, one of them, whose actions excited his suspicions, was brought to the station. There the delinquent was found to be a young woman in man'r dress, and when she appeared befor. a magistrate next morning her story, which he heard in his private room, was so interesting and pathetic that, in discharging her, he directed that her case should be specially reported to me. It transpired, moreover, that she had received sympathy and pe cuniary help from people in a very exalted position in London. Accord ingly I sent for her. When she came to my office she was dressed neatly and with taste in female garb, ol course. She was attractive and lady like, and rather pretty; her voice was pleasing, and her smile was charm. ing.

Ye Wise Mante. A distant realtive had taken up hit quarters with a newly-married coupk who had received him with every marlk of consideration. But when, after a week's stay in the house, the guest began to make himself more and more at home the couple deliberate'd on the best means of getting rid of the haug er-on and intruder without offending him. "I. tell you what," said the busband. "to-morrow at dinner I will grumble about the soup, saying it is over-salfed. You will then flare up, ant when the dispute is at its-height we will-appeal to the decision of our relative. If he takes your part I will turn him out of doors, and if he sides with me you will do the same."

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL.. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor": Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose.. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or-sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.

The Retort Courteous. One day a learned professor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the filthiness of the boy's face. "I don't want a shine, my lad," said he, "but if you'll go ami wash your face I'll give you a six"ance." "A'richt, sir," 'was. the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring. fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I dinna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and-get yer hair cut."
KERANG V. BOORT ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
KERANG V. BOORT ASSOCIATIONS. The annual match between these as sociations was played on Frplay and Saturday last in the cricket oval at Aleaxndra Park. The weather was very unsuitable for cricket, a strong westerly wind blowing across the pitch during the whole of Friday's play Boort took the bat and certainly disappointed every one in the weak display they made. The Kerang bowlers (Addison and Jamieson) seemed to be irresistible and slaugh tered the Boort wickets at such a rate that only 34 runs were scored when the tenth wicket fell. W. Mason was -the only batsman to reach double fieures. The probability is that the higlhwind blowing was the cause to considerable extent of the rapid fall of -the Boort wickets. With so many fine batsmen in the team it is hard to account for the batting collapse. When the Kerang play es took the bat the fair score of 160 runs were made before the fall of the last wicket. When play was resumed on Saturday morning Boort showed to great advantage in t...
