TRAFALGAR SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
TRAFALGAR SOUTH. From Our Own Correspondent The poultry industry is flourish ing here, most residents having in troduced pure bred males into their yards, in order to improve their flocks. Messrs Douglas and Hamp ton report a heavy yield of eggs dur ing the winter. As their chief var iety, as far as numbers go, is the White-leghorn, the old idea that this breed is purely a spring and summer layer is dispelled. While making egg production their first object, the above breeders, keen judges and experts' in the mating of their pens, showed by their record at the local show, that they have kept closely to type also. Thny will be able to put up very stiong pens in White-leghorns, having a choice from numbers of top notchers, which will be mated with cocks and cockerels from Mitchell. Bradley, Spotswood and Hall, the three latter breeders always being well up in the laying competitions. In black orpingtons they have a good pen of Poole hens mated with a Goudic Cockerel, the latter a winne...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
.FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, j A Melbourne coroner onco made the sago remark* that on occasions people commit suicide by inadvertence, so to speak. lie was referring to the fool who looks down the muzzle of n gun and pulls the trigger to see if it works right, or the man who goes to see where a gas tank leaks with a lighted candle in his hand. The limit ought to have been reached long since, but a London man takes the cake, lie wanted to drown a dog, so he took the hapless animal and proceeded to a swiftly-running stream. On the way lu tilled his pockets with stones. When he came to the point of sacri fice bo had to descend some slippery r.tcps to the turbid v.aters, and, his feet, failing him, he slid into the water, whilst the do:; smiled on the steps. Ho might have struggled out but for th? stones in his pocket. The dog went home and reflected on the matter of narrow escapes. None bui the brave deserve the fair, and none but the brave can live with some of them. "Does Mr. Mining-r-ian ...

In each case the latter put up a good fight. The Thorprlalu team nlso shot some roat chos on several minature ranges and gave a good account of themselves. In one case, the travelling team only beat tho ladies by ono point. It is customary, as most teams must know that travel on concassion tickcts, to have many arguments with various officious railway offic ials, concerning tho tickets. These officials generally possess tho impu dence of a Mirboo footballer. On this trip, however, special arrange meuts were made to dodge these annoying arguments. Thorp...

OUT OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914
OUT OP IT. O, see the man! In utter gloom He leaves tlie gaily lighted room. He hears the sound of laughter gay. He has a look of dull dismay. While others wear a joyous grin As kindly sounds the ragtime din, He turns away and lots them prance, The man who never learned to dance. A man may study all the arts, May read the sea and sky by charts. May know the history of the law From Moses down to Harry Thaw. He may have treasure locked away And power other men to sway, But whero's the use. He stands no chance, The man who never learned to dance. Ten thousand Anglican Churchmen will hold a conference in London in September to discuss the probability of women entering the priesthood of the Church.-Cable news.
