SCRATCH MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

SCRATCH MATCH. A combination of the Lismore and Derrinallum players had a scratch match at Lismore on Saturday, the idea being to keep the teams fit for the more strenuous struggles of premiership matches. Percy Walters captained one side and T: Sutherland the other. The scores were not kept accurately, but it is surmised that Walters' side won. It was unfortunate that Walters, the Lis more club's captain, badly wrenched his left knee, which may incapacitate him for a few weeks.

LISMORE PRESBYTERIAN PARISH RECORD CONGREGATIONS. NEW CHURCH OPENED AT DER RINALLUM. ENJOY A13 LE RE-UN ION AT LIS MORE. The jubilee of the Lismore Presby terian Parish was celebrated this week by special services on Sunday at Lis more and Dcninallum, and by a re union social on Tuesday night at the Lismore Mechanics' Hall. In every re- i spect the jubilee was an unqualified success. For months past the minister (the Rev. K. A. Forbes), the officers of the parish, and the ladies of two con gregations at Lismore and Dcrrinallum had been preparing for the great event, the interest of every church member and adherent was thoroughly aroused, arid all that was needed was fine weather to permit of the celebrations being attended by those living at a dis- : tance from the two townships. Sunday proved to be one of the most perfect of the many fine days that have been ex perienced this winter, the result being crowded congregations at Lismore in the morning and at Derrinallum in the afternoo...

REUNION SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

REUNION SOCIAL. "Heavy, sleety rain commenced to fall on Tuesday morning, and although the breaking up of the dry spell was a veiy welcome one, it interfered .somewhat with the attendance at the re-union social held at the Lismore Mechanics Hall in the evening. Had the clirnatic^ conditions been more propitious foi those living at a distance, there would not have been a vacant seat in the hall. Those present, however, numbeied 300, and the proceedings were of a very eniovable nature. First-class munical and "elocutionary items were rendered, and all the speakers seemed to stride the tru'e jubilee note in their utterances. The Moderator of the Church of vic toria took the chair at the request o! Rev. E. A. Forbes. With him on the platform were the Rev. John Walker, i of Iiallarat, the Moderator and mims ! ters of the Presbytery of the Western I Plains, and the representative oincers of the Lismore Parish. After devo tional exercises, Rev. I< oroea read a ! number of messag...

DERRINALLUM SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

DERRINALLUM SERVICES. The congregation that attended the afternoon .service was the largest that   has ever assembled in Derrinallum. It was the opening and dedication of the Jubilee Memorial Church, a brick   structure that has been erected at a   cost of about £1400. The preacher re-   marked that it was one of the most,   beautiful country churches he had ever , been in, and this appeared to be the   general verdict.   When the building was about as full : as it would hold, Rev. E. A. Forbes as cended the pulpit and announced that it   was the wish of tin: Moderator that the   congregation should assemble outside,   This having been done, the Doxology   was sung, prayer was offered by the   Moderator, who then knocked thrice   on the church door and declared in the name of the Trinity that " this house is &amp...

ABORIGINAL SUPERSTITIONS DEAD MEN'S NAMES NEVER MENTIONED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

ABORIGINAL SUPERSTITIONS DEAD MEN'S NAMES NEVER MENTIONED. "Crystal." The Central Australian aboriginal firmly believed that the spirit or soul of a deceased blackfellow immediately took up its abode in the body of an other living human being, or else continued its existence in that of one of the lower animals. Of the former form of transmigration of the soul they etood in no dread whatever, evi dently regarding it as the natural and proper consequence following disso lution. The latter, however, they viewed with horror, it being in their minds the worst calamity that could possibly happen. Death, according to their ideas, never resulted naturally, the death of one of their number be ing invariably attributed to the agency of an evil spirit they called "Tandooka." At the time of which I write they subsisted entirely by bunt ing, and when one of them fell sick a warrior or medicine man was se lected to remain in camp and attend to the sick man, while the others were absent on their h...

SOME POPULAR LIES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

SOME POPULAR LIES. "Thank you, I never slept better in my life." "I never smoked a better cigar, old man." "Can't tell you how sorry I am there is no room for your little boy In my car." "Yes, we get nine eggs a day." "I couldn't possibly live without you." "I nearly died laughing." "Ok. no, mother, my feet are not wet." "He is the living image of his father." "JuBt two minuteB from the sta tion." "You'll find this just as good, madam." "I love you." Bill Morris and George Mayman re cently went looking for a lost horse out beyond the trans-line head, writes "Dryblower" in the Kalgoorlie "Sun." They hadn't been long at the opera tion, before they lost themselves and made up their minds that most like ly they'd never again see Kalgoorlie. After wandering about for several hours, Bill spotted a wisp of smoke rising from a clump of bushes, and persuaded George to sneak forward and study the type of savages about it. The first thing George heard when he got within earshot was a voice sho...

SHOPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

SHOPPING. A lady ambles to a store To buy a spool of thread, At first she-looks at hats galore Then carving knives and bread. From there she travels to the aisle When davenports are kept, And then she lingers for a while Around the ribbon dept. ; he looks at frying-pans and lace, InspectB the latest books, She prices lotions for the face And linen goods and hooks. And when she's canvassed all the joints, The clerks are nearly dead, She brings the matter to a point And buys a spool of thread. An immaculate husband and doting father was trying to get a number on his telephone the other day, when his four-year-old daughter, clad for a walk, ran into the hall. "And has my little darling got her gloves on this cold morning?" he asked, "'o his as tonishment the telephone rang off in his ear. He was still more sur prised next day. An inspector called and said that such liberties must not be taken with the staff, and that they were determined to uphold the dis cipline of the department at a...

TWISTED TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

TWISTED TITLES. Humorous twists given to book titles by library borrowers may be Il lustrated by the following requests, which are but a few of many: . L come for Mr. A . Will you please send him 'Indecent Orders (In Deacon's Orders) ?' "Have you a novel entitled 'She Combetli Not Her Head (He Cometh Not, She Said)?' '"Kiss Auntie (Quisante),' if you please. "Very disturbing to the librarian was a request received on a postcard from-a male reader: "Kindly reserve me 'A. Damsel or Two/ " Two people who went to the Antarc tic-Ernest Joyce and the brave Frank Wild (the latter died with Scott)-searched in vain for a flea, one of the Rothschild family having offered £1000 for each specimen cap tured. But there were no fleas; none on the explorers, none on the dogs, none in tho blankets. What a coun try, says the Syuney "Sun." The world has never yet seen what the human race would be capable of if there were no fleas to cause insom nia and nervous breakdown. A thous and pounds seems an aw...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. One day a very humble and poor fellow, who appeared to have escaped the vigilance of the private police, managed to placo himself in the path of King Christian of Denmark. The King, as usual, full of kindness, stop ped, and said: "My good friend, and what can I do for you?" "Ah, your Majesty," answered the beggar, "what I humbly ask is a like ness of yourself!" King Christian looked rather aston ished. "I would gladly give you one," said the monarch kindly, "but I do not carry any about with me." "Excuse me, your Majesty, but I think if you will look in your purse you will find one." The originality of the idea amused old King Christian, and the man went away the richer by a gold piece. Do right and fear no man; don't write and fear no woman.

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. . Many good stories were told by Dr ! Macnamara, M.P., recently, when he gave some of his "Reminiscences and Reflections" at the Heme Hill Congre gational Church,' with Sir Albert Spi cer in the chair. Beginning with the barrack-room at Montreal, he was alternately sfcrious and humorous. On the one and only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother went to ask. the schoolmaster if "he could leave early to go out to tea. "And this," he re marked' sorrowfully, "I have always regarded as hard lines." Half the failures in life, he said, are those of people who thought they could do something else better. This was his first reflection. And so, al though he wished to be a soldier, he did his best as a pupil teacher. At Exeter he was taught singing by a lame man who waved his stick threat eningly when his pupils did not grasp a melody quickly. This lent Itself to Dr. Macnamara's first witticism, for this, he thought, must be the meaning of. the "staff notation."...

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. T' . antics played by lightning: are sometimes almost beyond belief.- A common trick is that of undressing its victims. In 1898 two girls and an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine during a storm. A lightning flash struck the woman and killed her on the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, even their boots being torn from their feet. Otherwise they were safe and sound -and astonished. In 1855 a man was struck by lijtr' ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could be found afterwards of his clothes was a shirt-sleeve, a few other shreds, and some pieces of his hob-nailed boots. Ten minutes after he was struck he regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how he happened to be naked. Such instances have 'been recorded again and again. In one caBe a man and two oxen were struck simultan eously, and all three killed. The man was found stripped to the skin^ and his hoots had ...

Football. LISMORE STILL UNBEATEN. DEFEAT FOXHOW BY 5.9 TO 3.5. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

LISMORE STILL UNBEATEN. | DEFEAT FOX HOW BY 5.9 TO 3.5. ' Berry Bank was the scene of Inst Saturday's match, when Lismore and Foxhow met for the second time this season. The ground was in good order, but a strong north-westerly wind marred what would otherwise have been a fine game by confining the play to the south-eastern wing. Still the match was always interesting to watch, and was played in a friendly, .sports manlike spirit. Lismore won because they were slightly the better team, and had the advantage of some luck and good generalship. In the absence of Percy Walters, his brother Dave resumed his old position as Lismore's captain, while Ferguson was in command of Foxhow. Thewlis, of Geelong, was the umpire, and kept a good grip of the game. He was quick to penalise breaches of the rules, and some of his decisions were rather hard to understand, but there was no ques tion as to his impartiality. Lismore's team included Brown and Preston, who took the field for the first time th...

BRAINS IN THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

BRAINS IN THE FEET. The necessity for combining intelli gence with muscles and nerves in athletics is emphasised by Mr. E. W. Hjertberg, coach of the Swedish Olym pic team, in "Athletics'in Theory antl Practice,'' All those ; who train1. with the idea of winning prizes on the ith-: letic track, he says, should always remember that the brain plays an im portant part in training as well as in: contests. .He points out that in the old days it was usually held to be enough to train the body, and the more drastic thOj training the more likely success was thought to be. Nowadays it it necessary, if a man has to win success on the track, that he should have "brains in his feet," as the saying goes. Mr. Hjertberg points out that many contests have been lost by good athletes just be cause they did not think quickly or accurately enough. ' ' To-day, in training, brain and nerves are given even more attention than the body. Furthermore, an athlete is allowed to think for himself and is al lowe...

Smartman laughed, and replied: "Glorious, glorious! Send him. here, landlord, at once." ,1Woll, John, would you like to earn; a shilling?" queried Smartman. John grinned, and said "e'd werry much like to 'are the charnse." "Well, look here, old chap, just take this half-sorereign across to the police-station and aslc Sergeant Sleepie to oblige me with silver. You can deduct a shilling for your trou ble." John departed, chuckling. A few minutea afterwards he re turned, almost breathless, and, much to Smartman's ama' ement, proceed ed to count nine shillings in silver in to his hand.
