BOLDNESS AS AN IMPERATIVE VIRTUE IN LOVE AFFAIRS. I Following are extracts from essays I in a prize taking competition: — : "You naughty thing, Mr. Pendenys, you put the idea into my head, and you are really responsible for the re sult I've hooked him—I menu he has proposed to me at last. I m that nobody would take me for a day 1 over thirty, or, say, thirty-hve; and as I walked out of Acadia Villa on August 2nd, I really looked quite girl ish. I had on my new petunia blouse -such a love I—my «rf«n. v®lv®t®^h and my sweet little pork pie hat, which I had done up with a most valuable ostrich feather which n,«v and :whidi I h.ro Wdied re'J. I flatter myself that 1 looked most lady-like; and even that cat, Mrs. Blown, next door, was struck, tor when I came by she was looking out of the window, wasting her time, in stead of looking after her nasty child-. ren, but called her husband, and they both stood on the step and watched me out of sight. I never saw two people look more astonished...
Sporting News. RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
Sporting News. RIFLE SHOOTING. Bight shaofcists attended practice at the local range on Saturday last. A tricky wind was blowing, and this, together with a mirage, made things rather difficult for the majority. Jk. Shimmen was the most successful, placing seven of his eight shots in the black at 500 yards'—39 out of a possible 40. On Saturday next, the return match between the "old" and "young" brigade will bo fired on the local range, over the. 400 and 500 yards distances.'- Every member should make an effort to be present, and in tending recrnits are also invited. Ammunition will be obtainable on the rango. The teams should be as follows:— Over 30. J. Andrew W. Fraser E. Coker J. Cooper L. Higgott J. H. Walsh S. Hunt J. Monks E. Flack H. George P.

OIL AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
OIL AND THE WAR. The subject of oil fuel, its uses in war, its sources, anil its supply, is lit erally a burning one at the present moment, and therefore the "History and Romance of the Petroleum In dustry" by J. D. Henry is very op portune. Mr. Henry, who lias al ready; published several works dealing with various aspects of the subject, now essasys its history, not forgetting its romance, on a large scale. It is full of interest, as the history of all pioneer movements is; but it deals only with the pioneer phases of the industry and the early struggles and adventure of its-founders. Hut Mr. Henry has rightly felt that what most roader* will' look tor at tlie opaning of a war in which oil in its various applications will play a conspicuous and unprecendented part is not so much a romantic history of the early phases of the industry as a survey of its bearing .on the military and naval fortunes of the several belligerants. Accordingly, he delayed the publication of his first volume...

OBSERVATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
OBSERVATIONS. A thief doesn't want his honesty questioned. ' The simple life is best for health, morals ami content. Worrying does no good and it always injures the worrier. A clean calico dross looks far better than a soiled silk one. A religion that isn't lived every day isn't much good on Sunday. Beware ol! the man who is always telling his neighbors' failings. Many a boy who absolutely refused to be driven can bo easily led. Being a Jack-of-all-trades comes in mighty handy ou the farm. Take a day off once in a while. You will accomplish more woTk in tho long run. The man who is friendly only when he * wants a favor isn't worth your friendship. Don't expect your friend to think as you du. lie has his likes and dislikes, too. Beware of the man who is always lawiug, and who always has justice on his side! If you have a grievance, forget it; liursiug will cause it to assume enor mous proportions. Look out for ho man who drops his old neighbors to take up somebody who puts on more st...
Cycling and Motor Notes. AUSTRALIAN AND ENGLISH. Dunlop Rubber Co. Ltd., Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
. Cycling and Motor Notes. AUSTRALIAN AND ENGLISH. Otinl »p Rubber Oo, U«l,. Mi'lhourno Riilo Dnnlop tyros—they aro tho boat. • According to the Dnnlop Rubber Co. many thousands of pounds are wasted annually by motorists in this country through insufficient inflation oF tyres. The results and losses from such negleot were bad enough when only the standard si'/.ud covers were raarketod, but the tronblo has been inteusilied since the introduction of what aro known as "oversize" tyres, i.e., covers built to standard size bend lines, but of larger diameter and mora J air space, with a view to eliminating j vibration to the benefit of man and ! motor. The "oversize" tyro has proved very successful in 5the hands of careful motorists, who always see thut their tyrex are kept inflated to the proper degrees of hardness, but, unfortunately there are thousands of motorists who, ns long as their tyres do not flatten out or roll too much, are satisfied to leave matters slide— especially if there...

LIVE IT DOWN. Vcs, your fault has blurred vout . name ; Such disgrace is hard to bear ; Vet for you there is an aim, Which should be your constant care— You must learn to live it down True, the cloud Is like a pall ; Error ever weaves such things ; / Hut the sky is over all ; Morn has light upon Its wings, If you only live it down. Yes, T know men look askance. Dreading any pitch to touch ; Women, with u wondering glance, Fear to pity overmuch ; Still, I tell you—live it .1own* Patient be, with spirit meek, liear rebuffs a little while, Till true friends shall kindly ^peak. Meeting you with sunny smile, Seeing you can live it down. JLabour ! Oh. the worth of work, Chasing bitter thoughts away ! Never any duty shirk Which arises day by day ; This is how to Jive it down. Ask lorglveness—and forgive. Yet indulge not memories dark ; For you still may nobly live, Thougn for once you missed the murk— If you strive to live it down. 'Tis not easy ? That I own ; What is easy that has worth ?...

THAT BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
THAT BOY. Uow about that boy of yours Sort ol: a provoking kid sometimes, isn't lie.' Never wants to do the thing you want him to do, and would rather play or trille at a little bit of nothing? Well, maybe that's true. But don't forget that he's just a boy. And per liape the things you don't like about him he has inherited or learned from you. Then, too, pleasure comes before duty to tho childish mind. A boy fan hear pleasure whispering a mile away, but duty can't disturb him if it shouts through a megaphone at his side. Thus it was decreed by the Creator. He i trould not have the growing intellect burdened by duties which hang heavily even on tile adult mind. 1 -Remember, too, the 'next time you ] chide your boy for doing things that , your neighbor's boy wouldn't (?) do, that you really see that neighbor's boy , clothed, as it were, in his garb of best ! behaviour. You sec your boy as he is. Were you to exchange boys you would find, nine times out of ten, that | yotir boy comes cl...

BREATHE AMP GROW PRETTY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
BREATHE AMP GROW PRETTY. Correct breathing is the first art to cultivate in the pursuit of beauty just as it is the fust stop in the im provement of health. Ah a woman breathes so she is, for the poise of the chest is the keynote to the whole figure. When the chest is in proper posi tion the fine points of artistic wear ing apparel ami ail the little frills of fashion art- s««n to the best ad vantage. Even humble materials as sume a certain elegance hitherto un known. Hut ii it is carri.nl badly the whole figure droops and fails into ugly atuS-.s. Nothing sets wall no garment scents right. It is always wrong to make the bone structure do must of the work in icccptnR- (!m* hoclv upright. The muscles should hold it in position, otherwise grace is out of the ques tion and good heulih diflicnlt. To breathe i-uruvt ly keep the* chest up, out, forward, as if pulled up by a.button. Keep the chin, the lips, the chest on a line Hold the shoulders on a line whli the hips. The observance 01 th...
(Copyright.) THE PROPRIETY OF Biding Man's Proposal. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914
( Copyright.) THE PROPRIETY OF Biding Man's Proposal. 3BY MISS ANNE DE LASHMUTT. The Misses Norris sat down to consider, Four of thorn were in so ciety, and Ihe fifth sister. Miss Hon ora Norris had arrived at the alarm age of 17. Something must be ....to further ..their matr«»*»«»«i«i ends. They had more pedigree than money and more beauty than either. The supply of ball dresses, street dresses and house gowns could not equal the demand, hence the neces sity of adopting active measures. Husbands there ought to be enough and to go round. James Goodman, attorney-at-law, had called on Miss Teresa Norria since the days of her first maidenly conquests ; but for all his morning, poon and nightly visits, he was never there on the eve of proposing. Gordon Hunt sent Miss Mildred Jvorris candies, roses, and violets ~ galore ; took her driving and boat ing and escorted her to the opera guid dances, but hud never reached (he point of proposing.

To inflate a tyre, the nipplo ol' tho containing vessel is attached to the tyre valve, then a handle _ is struck. This causes a spark which lights the material which produces the gas, which forces itself through a hlter pad. The tubo which allows tho ga.- to enter the tyre is regulated by a screw plug. This method of pro cedure is a quick oue, and it will bo easy for those who have motor cars to carry a number of small capsules containing the ciiemieuls.—Messrs E. A. Smith and W. Withers, Victoria.
