Still Generous. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
Still Generous. It was her birthday, but he had r shed off to business with just the usual duty-peck at her upturned face, and she was left to worry the day through, oppressed by the thought that his once ardent love was waning. When he returned at night, wished her "many happy returns," gave her a full-size hug, and placed a tiny pac ket In her hand, she knew that she had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and wvon her. "And I thought you'd forgotten all about it, Harold," she cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged expression took a front seat on her features. "Pipe cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, pet," he said; "'I knew they'd please you. You never did like me to use your hat-pins!"
MISS MARIE CORELLI ON HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
MISS MARIECORELLI ON HAPPINESS. Miss Marie Corelli addressed the P.S.A. in the Congregational Church at Stratford-on-Avon one Sunday re cently-her subject being "The Secret of Happiness." The nineteenth cen tury, she said, had gone for ever, and with all our progress and civilisation we had not come much nearer the real secret of happiness than our an cestors. The twentieth century found us still searching, asking the same old question-how to be happy? It had been declared that we had lost the art of being happy in the old, simple ways, and that the brightness and mirth which used to make our Eng land "merrie Eng:and" had gone for ever. She thought there was some truth in this, and the reason was not far to seek-we thought too much of ourselves and too little of our neigh bors. There was nothing so depress ing as a contemplation of one's self. To be truly happy they must think of all the good they could do, and all the love they could show to their neigh bors; be earnest and fond of...
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. There is no merit in having a hard time in this life. There is no sin in merely having an easy time here. No man can confidently expect to be a gainer, in the next life, because he has suffered much in this life. Nor need any person lack hope for the life beyond, because he has found joy and had pleasure in the present life year by year. A life rightly spent may give joy in the present, and may have promise of the life that is to come. If we would hope for the future, let us use well the present.
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does not run out. But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It Is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman lshoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to be eused with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper invaluable treasure of anger. Is ang...
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. Rather a risky substitute for a bat tlefield is the top of an omnibus, but there have been ntot a few Homeric struggles on "imperiales," as they are termed in Paris. The latest adventure, says the Paris c, rnespondent of the "Daily Tele graph," of the sort owed its origin to a very comical mistake. At a parti cular P'risian office there ascended to the summit of one of these vehicles an individual of very comfortable di mensions, who was speedily immersed in the study of his newspaper, a pretty and well-dressed woman, many years his junior, and an elderly man, who looked like a retired officer. The omnibus had hardly started when the old beau began to cast glances ex pressive of intense admiration at his fair neighbor, and although he re ceived no encouragement he contin ued his attempt to get up a flirtation with her quite unabashed. Suddenly the lady rose to her feet, at the im minent risk of toppling over, and screamed out, "You rufflan! Not con tent wi...
TO A BIRD. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
.TO A BIRD. (Lines suggested by seeing one on a lady's hat in church.) Cruel the art, Poor bird, that killed, and placed you there, To form a part Of yonder lady's plumage rare! Who will consent That she, who hither came to pray, Has a heart as innocent As yours was in its gladsome day? And who can tell If the praise she offers in this throng Is as acceptable As once ascended with your song? Whatever land Claimed your nativity, there The same kind Hand Created you, that did this lady fair. Throughout your days Your little throat was made-and-meant To sing God's praise, Unharmed, a harmless instrument. And the religion that WVould take your pretty form and pin It to a lady's hat May point to Heaven-but ne'er enter in.

SHEPPARTON WATERWORKS TRUST. A CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. CONSTRUCTION OF NATIONAL HEAD WATERWORKS. BANKING ON COSGROVE CHAN NEL. The Shepparton Waterworks Trust met at the Shire Hall on Monday evening, when there were present : Come Denker (chairman), Roe, Green, Phillips, and Quinlan. FLOODING IIIS PROPERTY. James T Nankervis, of "Ivan hoe," Verney-road, again referred to need of immediate attention to Pine Lodge Creek near his property at Tallygaroopna. The shire en gineer had recommended that the channel through Griffiths be cleaned out to overcome the trouble, but that would not be effective. The only effective way out of the trouble was to syphon or pipe channel the railway line, as it was railway gutters that flooded his property. "In regard to the damage that has been done, I claim £300, and my tenant claims £50 for damage done to crop last year. We are willing to settle claim by arbitration; fail ing this, we must issue a writ against your Trust." Resolved on the motion of Come Roe...

CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 11 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. The education of an infant should commence as soon as it is born as good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby in fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to suck to "keep it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bound together; one cannot have 'a good character withl bad habits. Thle habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wrong. but perhaps at first the wrong path i...

The brother and sister went into the house, where the amazed and de lighted squire and his wife gave their son a most hearty welcome. Indeed, Mrs. O'Doyle shed tears as she kiss ed her "beautiful boy," as she called him. Shamus knew exactly how to act in the home of his ancestors. He gave his mother graphic accounts of his life in London, which charmed and delighted the sedate old lady, and after lunch he went around with his father to see the stables and examine the hunters. "I am forced to return to London to-morrow morning, sir, but when I do come back I will 'bring a cotiple of fresh horses with me." "Ye can't do better than buy them here, Shamus. There aren't any horses in the world like those we rear are there, Mick?" Mick, one of the head grooms, en dorsed his master's opinion. ...

LUCERNE IN PIG-RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 15 June 1914
LUCERNE IN PIG-RAISING. One of the immigrants from California, in an interview on this subject, states that grazing store pigs on lucerne in the American districts, and topping them up on sugar beet is quite common. Giv ing details, he says:-" To begin with the lucerne is fenced into two (or three would be better)emall en closures, into the first of which the pigs are turned while the lucerne is quite young. Then they prepare the second pasture by irrigating and getting the lucerne under good growth. in two weeks the pigs are changed to the second pasture, and the first irrigated, and, if neces sary mowed, in about ten days changed back again, and every ten days or during the growth of the lucerne, repeat. The pigs will put the pasture in bad shape if left in while irrigating. The pigs are ringed, or they will tear up the land so it cannot be watered. There are wallow tanks in the lower end of the pastures, . also some shade. Ringing is the best method to keep them from rooting, bec...

Its carts have run all uvar this dis trict, and were expected to call on the people again shortly.

ARCADIA. EXTENSIVE ALTERATIONS AT STATION. WOODCARTING AND "SHIFTING" THE STATE SCHOOL. (From Our Own Correspondent). The present dry weather is giv ing graziers and farmers in this district an anxious time. Light showers fell on Sunday night; but a soaking downpour is badly needed.
