OEANGE BLOSSOMS. tv« . Mr. F. A. Jenkins to Miss Nellie Campbell. A wedding that has been looked for ward to* with much interest, was cole brated on Wednesday, 15th April, be tween Mr Frank Arthur Jenkins, eldest son of Mr and Mrs J. Jenkino, of " Law reny," Riversdale Road, Auburn, and Miss Helen (Nellie) Brodie Campbell, the eldest daughter of Mr and Mr - W.

"HE IS A BRICK." [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914

"HE IS A .BRICK." I do not know how this slang | phrase originated. It is used mainly by boys and young men. "When they find a comrade who is generous and jolly, they say: "He is a brick." But I thought of it the other day when visiting the superintendent of a large smelting works. 1 saw them making up a load for the Mint. The gold that had been refined was in lumps the size and shape of a brick. The superintendent told me that each of those bricks was worth about £300, and added that in these days of hydraulic mining it had cost about as much as it was worth. I could not help thinking about the possible feature of those bricks. Some of them will be well invested, and will be represented ten or twen ty years hence by beautiful homes, fruitful orchards, or benevolent in stitutions. Some of them will be | represented by wrecked lives and ruin ed souls. As I passed down the street I saw a group of young men standing at the corner, and heard one ;of them say: "Jolyi, you are a brick." T...

BUILD A COMPLETE, WELLROUNDED CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914

BUILD A COMPLETE, WELL ROUNDED CHARACTER. ' Have you*ever observed, says the! novelist Bjornsen, that happy people work better than those who are sad,? Why? The same occupation con-, stantly, whether it be work, prayer or amusement, would make us stupid and gloomy. You can dig in the dirt until you become a brute, pray until the habit makes you a monk, and play until you become a mere puppet; but combine the three, it will streng then the heart and soul. Thus your work will be made more fruitful and your religion more cheerful. '

AMHERST ANNUAL BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914

AMHERST ANNUAL BALL. That ever popular event at Am herst, the annual ball in aid of the local hospital, took place on Wednesday night, in the Amherst Town Hall, and proved the usual huge success—financially and otherwise. Everything favored the committee—a splendid night and a large attendance—with the result that a thoroughly enjoy able night eventuated. True it is that the room was inconveniently crowded, especially for the style of dancing now so prevalent; but the terpsichorean votaries re ceived and gave many bumps and jolts as if it was a matter of course, and seemed not one whit put out over it, but rather ap peared to enjoy it. We might here state that the hall had undergone a course of decoration, and looked exceedingly well, thanks to a number of willing workers. There were present visitors from Evansford, Majorca, Maryborough, Talbot, Lillicur, Adelaide Lead (which place was strongly represented), Daisy HiF, Caralulup, M'Callum's Creek, etc., and .we should say there was ...

TALBOT BOROUGH COUN CIL. Monday, 1st June. Present: Crs Beresford (mayor), Ead, Taylor, Gane, Gale, Albert, M'Donald, and Chalmers. CORRESPONDENCE. From Country Fire Brigades' Board, asking that the matter of the purchase of the Talbot fire station by the board be allowed to stand over until the end of the year. With reference to the in creased contribution by the coun cil, the board stated that the small increase would probably be only temporary. It was caused by the contemplated expenditure this year of long needed exten sions to the Maryborough fire station, including a new drill hall. The Maryborough Council, however, in return for this, has consented to hand over the whole of the buildings to the board free of charge. This would save the board £30 a year in rent.
