OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 22 January 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST: -----4----- (By 'RIusticu.") - The State Government is re-assuring as to the prospects of seed wheat for the coming season. The position is set out in the following statement issued by the Premier: "in the matter of the supply of seed for the wheat areas, the public need: feel no concern as to a sufficiency for all requirements being available. Act in; on the advice of the Government, the great bulk of farmers have .made their own arrangements for seed, for it has been made abundantly clear from time to time through the press and in parliament, that the Government at no time had the intention to make pro vision for seed wheat, either by orders for purchases through regular channels or by direct distribution' of seed, to other than those who were unable to financially undertake the purchase. It was anticipated at one time that pro vision for as much as 1,000,000 bushels of wheat would be required, and ar rangements were accordingly made for securing such a quantity...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 22 January 1915
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Ourrespondent.) There is a movement to provide sys tematic training for citizens who, for various reasons, are not eligible for in clusion in the regular military forces. It has been tardy in coming, but there is reason to hope that it will now be taken up in earnest. The trouble ap pears to have been, and to still be, that the majority of people do -not re cognise the necessity fot everybody taking an active part. The silly re ports that rarely record anything that is inot favourable to the Allievs are mainly responsible for this. It would be better if- we knew just what is happening and just how important it is that all should do something more than subscribe a few shillings to a Patriotic Fund or buy a ticket for a concert that is to furnish limelight for the promoters and inci dentally, if expenses, permit, return a small sum for one of the war funds. Plain facts about the stupendous under taking the Allies have in hand would be salutary. - Wer...
WINGS FOR RUNNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 22 January 1915
WINGS FOR RUNNERS. At first blush running and flying seem Widely different modes of motion but an ingenious inventor is seeking to prove that by adopting the aeroplane idea in running, a fast runner might travel faster.. The ostrich, which ean not fly, but which can run faster than any known animal, uses its comparative ly short wings to great advantage when going at full speed. When the ostrich spreads its wings so that they act as balances, they also serve as kites or small aeroplanes, carrying a consider able portion of nIis weight. It is the above principle which the athlete might apply with advantage in the practice of running. The arm aeroplanes would not have to be very large, for it has been found that while short wings would be of great assistance, long wings would be a hindrance. Another thing which helps the ostrich is the fact that most of his weight is in front of his wings. The wings arrangement would enable a man to incline much more forward when unning, and the rush ...

John Jen kins and Sarah Smith are not married sir, and never intend to be. It's a hoax, sir-a miserable hoax." "Really, sir," said the clerk "it there's a mistake, we're exceedingly sorry. We do our best to avoid this sort of thing, but when Mr Soft brought that notice in he said-" "S6 Soft brought it-did he?" inter rupted the. man with the hunting crop. "That's all I wanted to know. Good morning." On reaching the door he turned back. "Take that notice out before, y...
