FOOTBALL. SALE v. BAIRNSDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 July 1914
FOOTBALL. ---o-- SALE v. BIAIRNSDALE. On the local ground on Thurs day Sale met and defeated Bairns dale. Throughout, the contest, which was witnessed by a large crowd, from both towns, the two teams were very evenly matthed, except when the ball was near the Bairnsdale goal, when it was very evident that the Bairnsdale for wards were a crooked lot of kick ers. It was not until after the second quarter, after five attempts, that their first goal was secured; whereas the same number of at tempts by the Sale men had re sulted in three goals two behinds. During the third quarter, both Potter and Witt missed easy shots, and if it had not been for such misses Bairnsdale would have won by two points. Evans, Hickey, C. King, Flynn, Witt,-Potter and Commins were much in evidence, for their hard work and systematic play; whilst on the Sale side, Bob. Michael, Bridgeman, Sinclair, F. Cartledge, Warnc, Cupit, and Richardson did yeoman service. An unfortunate accident to his leg in the first qu...
A FLIRT DESCRIBED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 July 1914
4 FLIRT DESCRIBED. By a Young Man. -What is i flirt? Rather, who is a flirt? Someone has said that a flirt is one who gives "attention without intention." In other words, a flirt is one who pays loving "attention" and devotion to a member of the opposite sex without any serious "intentions" as regards marriage, or' without any intention of allowing his attentions to culminate in marriage. or even in the preliminary stage of engagement. There is much truth in that definition, although perhaps it is not complete. We all know of cases among both sexes where certain parties are all "attention without intention." The young man whom this definition touches is quite liberal with his at tentions to young ladies. He is an ideal lover if you judge words and actions only, but if you direct invis ible X-rays on his invisible heart, you will find he has no thoughts of love. I know many young men who should feel the pangs or guilt in the matter. They have paid loving attention, seri ous attention...

' MR. W. J. M'LEAN. ---- The Six Liberal candidates for the Senate addressed a crowded meeting at Maryborough on Wed nesday. The " Age," reporter sta tes: " Mr. W. J. M'Lean, who was introduced as the son ot the late Mr. Allan M'Lean, was given a specially boisterous reception. An enthusiast at the back of the hah cried out, " If he's halt as good as his father, he'll do." The candi date showed himself the possessor of a good physique, ana a voice that carried easily to the back of the hall. He spoke fluently, ana without any of the hesitation of the political novice.

"INDEPENDENT' PARTY OF ONE! A COMMONWEALTH NOVELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 July 1914
"INDEPENDENT' PARTY OF ONE! A COMMONWEALTH NOVELTY. Slr,-It would be of Interest to obtain at the present time the definition of' the term " Indepen dent Liberal." At the last Federal election Austrahlia rather empathi cally voi:e' its opinion of those who classed themselves as such. The pub ic voice said very dlstinco tly that it had no use for jiilihti cians of that stamp. Now Mr., G. Ii. Wise comes along, and offers to .the electors ot (,ippsland the great opportunity of practically distranchising themselves by elec ting hlm to a " smpll' and lonely party" on his own account. Out side the confidence of all parties, it truly independent, and carrying: no weight whatever, it he occuplea such a position as that of Mr. Whitsitt, in Tasmanma, who, be cause one goverpment brought Into being some regulations re potatoes, which adversely aflectea that gentleman's private interests promptly transferred his allegiance to the other side, and thereby changed the political history of the Isla...

FLYNN'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 7 July 1914
FLYNN'S CREEK. Quite a pleasant ceremony took place at Flynn's Creek on Thurs- day, when, in the presence of a large gathering, the newly made tennis court was opened by Mr. T. Y. Anderson, senr. For this time of the year, the weather was splendid, and the court was in good playing order. In opening the court, Mr. T. Y. Anderson remarked that the members were deeply indebted to Mr. Harry Graham, for his genero- sity in buying the land for the use of the club. Further, the lack of social life in the district has been felt for some time, and the tennis court was not only a promoter of fellow-feeling, but also one of the best games for all-round physical development. Mrs. Baptiste was an energetic secretary, and ably supported by the members had made the club a success. Mrs. Baptiste and Mrs. H. Gra- ham sent the first ball over the net. Mr. Anderson then declared the court open, and the members and visitors kept the balls going until late in the afternoon. The ladies provided refreshm...
