BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 20 June 1914
BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. Victoria, which recovered herself from tlio boom calamity by starting the Australian dairy Industry, now re ceives butter from Queensland and New South Wales—States which but tardily followed her into this field of rural enterprise. Shiploads of Syd ney and Brisbane buttor ave coming into Melbourne every week. The cir cumstance is not usual. Victoria had a dry autumn and the Northern States a wet one; at the same time, butter pricos keep low in London, and con sequently Melbourno agents were able to get butter down from the two other capitals at a price which allowed pro fitable competition with the local pro duct. The occurrence goes to show that Australia is rapidly becoming a self-sustaining country, as she should be. Not many years ago Australia was Importing butter from Europe, and now she is helping to find tlio old world In that and many other food stuffs.

POLITENESS IN THE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 20 June 1914
POLITENESS IN THE HOME. li is significant to observe how some men fail to know how to treat., ilieir wives and sisters when they meet them. It seems to them Quite unnecessary to lift their hats, or to give heir nearest and dearest the courtesy they would freely render to any .woman outside of the domestic circle. This should not be, and the sooner a revolution is accomplished the bet ter. The ablest and most persuasive treatise on the etiquette of the home will not be able by itself to work the change, alhough it would be helpful townntr. that end. What is needed is the right training of boys and girls. Courteous behavior should be en forced by parents in the same way as oilier good finalities are taught. One of Ihe most successful instruct ors of the young in our day bears this testimony: "People complain of the way children behave, and lay the blame of their behavior on the day school; but if they would only make the children do at home as they are required to do in school, matter...

How fierce had been the rnnfUnt nf tlinfln lnnf rlnvn one glance into tlie wail, careworn face, witli the large, frightened eyes, sufjiced to show. She hud striven with pathetic earn estiiess to bo true to her vow. But, oh! whv had Angus left her to fight alone? Why, amid the pressure of his work had he not found time to steal to her side as others would have done, and help to strengthen her? Rut, ah, .lie did not know, she had not told him—she had boon too frightened to tell him; and now she shivered, feeling that she was not able to fight alone. And Eric bad boon so loving, his devotion had been so unremitting, his tenderness so winning! lint har...

EDUCATION' OF THE YOUNG. By n Mother. l'or all purposes of permanent in fluence, 110 period is like childhood nnd youth. And a man's youth, for moral improvement, lasts the whole of his allotted lifetime on earth. Some young people grow old too rast ror tlioir highest ndvantage. They thinl; they have finished their education! while yet in lliuir teens. And some mothers foolishly grant practical ad mission to the idea. But education is never finished so long ns opportunity continues, however early it may com mence. The whole of this sliorl life may he called tho period of youth for purposes of improvement. It is the period that determines tho weal or woe that conies after it.

DIFFERENCE IN GOLD. Jlost people supposa (says an as sayer) that all golil is alike when re fined; but tills is not the case. An experienced man can tell at a glance from what part of the world a gold pieces comes, and in some cases from what part of a particular gold district the metal was obtained. The Australian gold, for Instance, is dis tinctly redder than the Califorulan, and this difference in color is always perceptible, even when the gold Is 1000 line. Again, the gold obtained from the placers is yellower than that which is taken directly from quartz. Why this should be the case Is one o£ the mysteries of metallurgy, for the pla cer gold all conies from the veins. The Ural gold is the reddest found any where. Few people know the real color of gold as it is seldom seen uulesa heav ily alloyed which renders it \edder than when pure.
