TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

TURF TOPICS (By "Flsmington.") One of the most welcome items of re cent news is that "the toto" is now considered almost a certainty in Now South Wales. The Holman Govern ment is in need of revenue, and the lotalisator is one means of raising the wind. A 2'/{. per cent. State tax on tho hotting turnover in New South Wales would total up into quito a re spectable total at the eud of the year. No Government faced with a financial problem can afford to miss a chance like this. It is a perfectly legitimate way of raisiug funds, ami besides, the bet ting public almost to a man favor tho "toto." Whether it is intended in Now South Wales to follow the Westraliau ex ampio by allowing tho lotalisator aud tho bookmakers to compote against each other remains. The extremists will perhaps want to do without tho bookmaker altogether, but there is per haps 110 reason to go quite that far. A limited Ring in addition to the "machine" might be the better idea. Kpsom provided the programme for suburba...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 November 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rustioui.") "Business as Usual" ia Britain's mot- ! to (hiring tho war. Tha spirit at th« back of that motto might well be emu lated by the rural producers of Aus tralia in the face of the great drought. Their moto should be a doubue harvest next year, to make good the one that is small or altogether non-existent tins season. in this connection, no better use can be made of this column this week than to set out the reasons the Victorian Ministry are anxious that farmers should put the greatest possible area of land under wheat cultivation next xeason. Theso were expressed by the premier ihe other day. He said:—"As everybody knows, the great est and most destructive war in history has been raging without intermission for four months. Competent military opinion takes the view that tho struggle •will be prolonged. But, whether the war be long or short, it must inevitably mand in Europe for all kinds of im lead to material and unsatisfied de ported foodstuffs, and...

SEEN FROM AN OBSERVATORY. (By Old Father Timu.) Yi-'s, but it is decidedly different when the romantic lovor turns into a rheumatic husbuud. The dove of peace ia living high to net out of the way of warring aero planes. A poor compromise in usually better than a big lawsuit. When you and your neighbors all agree, 'tis then the lawyer gets no fee. The girl with a pretty dimple sees a lot to smile at. Some of us cun beat George Wash ington in one particular at least—he couldn't tell a lio. If all work antl no play maltes Jack a dull boy, then all play anil no work makes him entirely too sharp.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. IJo you want to help tbe dentist Then bo sure to bite off all the threads while sewing and to crack .all tbe hard nuts with vonr teeth. He will, or ought to be, very thankful to you. Do not patronise travelling opticians. They seldom know auythiug about the business, but are often bold bluffs. Glasses which do not lit the eyes are more injurious than none. The eyes are too valuable to bo tampered with. As you find articles needing mend ing, put them all in one basket or bag with the patches, etc., necessary for the work; then some day when you want to think or to listen to reading, get these out for work that will not need thinking about. Fill your salt anil pepper shakers by means of a funnel, and save scattering the salt ami pepper about. A funnel is also useful for separating the yolks and whites of eggs.

DOG LOVE FOR MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914

DOG LOVE FOB MAN. A dog looks up to man as though he were a god, ami it is pathetic when we think how many dog owners conio far short of the Olympian stature, and of being worthy of that inuto idolatry. Yet man is the holder of creation's patent of nobility, to be considered a little lower than the angels, and a dog is—only a dog, and can not emanci pate himself from his afliliution with the beasts. A stick is nothing to a dog till a man has laid his lmud upon it and thrown it for him to retrieve. Straightway, that fragment of a (lead branch be comes invested with all manner of de sirable attributes. It is something to be eluiig to till the teeth break, if ne cessary, so that the way a dog "hangs, on'' lias become a proverbial expres sion for tenacity. There is nothing in the prospect of a walk all by himself to tempt a dog to roam abroad; but let a man ask him if he .wants to go for a walk, and 110 comfortable place by the ingleuook has any temptations for him. Ho is at once a spri...

THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914

THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. There are several great divisions in tlio army of mankind, with innumer able sub-divisions. ltoughly speaking, wc may call them the unhappy, the; apathetic, the cynical, and tlio coura geous, or those who dare to face fate with a smile. If we may judge by appearances, the first division is far and away the larg est. It is astonishing, as we walk the streets, ride in the ears, or look from our windows upon the passing crowds, to find so many faces sober, sad or utterly devoid "of life or radiancy. Chance conversations accidentally over heard, even those intended for our own ears, bear out this lugubrious testi mony. It is a truth which none of us can gainsay, that the iueidents and episodes of life are not as a rule con ducive to hilarity or happiness, it' we take them at their face value. Sin gularly enough, the mass of humanity looks 110 111010 deeply into its enforced experiences, nnd so forfeits the rich kernel of the hard nut. It is rather more hopeful, howev...
