OH, YOU WOMEN ! [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
OH, YOU WOMENI Two womena friends, who had not seen each other for some time, met at a -tea-shop. Mrs. Brown could not resist the opportunity of dragging in allusions to motoring. "I simply adore it." she exclaicmed. "I couldn't do without our darling lit tle machine. It is a six-cylinder, you know, with improved olutches, a ?f starter, and things like that. I shouli think you would get one." "We have got one," answered Mrs. Green with a happy little smile. "We have had it for some time." "You don't really mean it l" re turned Mrs. Brown, just a trifle jea olusly. "What make is it?" "It is a light-running lockstitch," answered. Mrs. Green. "with a heni mer. tucker, and a buttonhole attach ment !"

NOT GRANTED. Jones, able-seaman on H.M.S. Ver non, gazed into the face of his com mander pleadingly. "You are always on leave I" ex claimed the officer. "What on earth do you require extra leave for now?" ""My sister's baby's gain' to be waxinated, sir," replied Jones. "And what lhas that to do with you?"

'hat's the point.'} "P-p-please, sir," stuttered Jones, "they want me-me to stand as god-ra m-mother I'?

KEEP ON. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
KEEP ON. A young American -lawyer was de. fending an old convict on the charge of burglary in a State where the court rules allow each side one hour to ad dress the jury. The young lawyer, somewhat nervous, consulted a veteran member of the bar, who happened to be standing near. "How much time do you think I should take up in addressing the jur,y" he asked in a rather pompous manner. "Take the full hour," was the gruff reply. "The longer you talk the loner you'l keep your client out of Husband: "My dear, I though we were going to practise economy for a time." Wife: "So we ar , dear.

WALKED OUT WITH IT. There canme into the oflice of a law yor a man .who was excited because his wife had left him, and hbe fcared she would run him into debt all over the country - "In that case," said the lawyer, "you had better post her."

The lawyer explained that he meant putting a notice in the newspapers saying : "Whereas niy wife Helen has left my bed and board without any. just,-'! "But that ain't true," interrupted the client. "Sheo didn't leave my bed. She took it with her."

METALS THAT NEED HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
METALS THAT NEED HOLIDAYS. It will perhaps be a revelation to many to learn that metals suffer from fatigue as -much as man, and feel equ ally strengthened by a holiday. eq Rlepeated experiments have proved that steel and wrought iron deteriorate under constant strain or vibration, and if they are denied the necessary reit the time comes when, like the hluman machine, they collapse altogether, Lord Kelvin has proved bult iron wires kept in a state of osoillation dur. ing the week act quite differently aiter a Sunday's rest; and that an iron bar subjected to strain will rise 10 per cent. in elasticiy after a three weeks' holiday. A Bessemer steel rail, which had done good se'vice for twenl:y-tvro years without a day's holiday, not long ago collapsed altogether under the weight of a train and broke into half-a-dozen laiee-r. Singularly enough, cast-iron, which most people would imagine less durable thaun steel, improves greatly in strength under constant shocks. While geat tried a mon...
Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XVII. THE DAY AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
(Terribly Tempted. t SERIAL STORY BY : _ ANNABEL GRAY. CHAPTER XVII. THE DAY AFTER. There was so much "consitent incon sistency," in Colonel Stamer's charao ter-if we may use the term; he was so strange a compound of varied con tradictions, that alter Lenore had gain ed some rest by sleep, she refused to accept the ukase he had pronounced against her. It had been spoken, ot course, in a moment of irritation - of petulant caprice, caused by worry. He never meant to sentence her. The good and evil qualities of his mind ivere so .curiously blended, that the good was sometimes in the ascendant. Why should it not be so now? His false hood, fickleness, and selfishness must be glossed over. She must still sub mit to that fascination and sorcery, against which, morally speaking, her soul rebelled, because she loved him too tenderly to be thrust from his prese.:c:, and survive it. He on his part had, however, never faltered in his resolve, and the fact that thelre were duns, more summonses, ...
MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. There is no end to the howlers from the schoolroom. An authority on the subject has just been pointing out that in English literature"pa pers younnpeo ple are sometimes asked to give their critloisms on certain books or authors. They usually rely on criticisms which they have read in books, but if their memories fail the results are often disastrous. One youthful critic cast aspersion upon Milton when he wrote: "Milton married a young girl who ran back to her parents, so lie wrote a sonnet on divorce." "Shakespeare," affirmed another Syou? oritic, "found. ed 'As You' Like It,' on a book pre; voislhy written by Sir Oliver Ledge." "After twice committing suicide, the poet Cowper lived till 1800 when lie dieda natural death." Anther hope ful wrot i "Sir Walter Scott's firm of publishers liquified, and he lhad to pay. off the national debt before ho did." And the youthful -historianI sagely added: "This wore him out."

CO-OPERATIVE CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
CO-OPERATIVE CHARITY. It is not often that charitable insti tutions are able to pay their-own way and have profits to expend upon the beneficiaries. There is such an insti tution in Italy called the Laboratorio della Consolata. This was started by some charitable ladies to rescue work ing' girls" from the temptations of fac tory life and to save them from being sweated. Apprentices are paid enough to live on, and women workers make as much money as, if not more than, if they were employed by ordinary dress making establishments says the 'World's Work.' During the dead seasons when girls employed in other dressmaking places are discharged the Consolata girls are still employed. Work is done at lower prices, ladies bring odd pieces of mater ial to be made up, and everything is done to "keep things going." Thus, while every other dressmaker is out of work in February and August, the Con solata girls are provided for. Also, the working day is one hour shorter than that of other workroom...
HANDLING CANADA'S WHEAT CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
HANDLING CANADA'S WHEAT CROP. Conditions (says "The Sydney Stock and Station Journal") have never been so good for handling the Canadian grain crop at. the head of the Lakes. By the close of navigation there will be no Ices than 40,000,000 bushels stor age capacity at Fort Williams and Port Arthur, which is 12,000,000 bush els' more than last year. The hew Government-owned elevator is now completed and the machinery will be ready to handle its share of the com ing season's crop. It has a.capacity of three-quarters of a million bushels in the workhouse and two and a half millions in the storage bins. In fact, there is room for elevator space of some 30,000,000 bushels. In addition to the Government elevator, the Can adian Pacific Railway, Grand Trunk Pacific, and Canadian Northern, to gether with the Fort William Eleator Company, and other concerns, are erecting new buildings, so that the total increase in storage facilities this year will be about 12,000,000 bushels.
THE ORCHARD. HOW TO SAVE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
THE ORCHARD. HOW TO SAVE TREES. InI every apple orchard of mature trees are individual trees which are in imminent danger of splitting, apart owing to a mechanically weak forma tion at union of trunk and body limbs. Many such trees have been ,uined and others are finding their way ; the wood-pile. B' a proper system of trussing between opposing body in.Js this danger-is entirely obviated and -the tree made stronger than _ tlhers not trussed though normally formed. A seam, if not already a fissure, ex tending downward from top of trunk, indicates the weak tree which if at tended to promptly will be saved trom disaster and an untimely end. Again, many trees contain bird holes or openings into body limbs or trunk as a result either of careless or ignor ant pruning, failure to treat the larger wounds with paint, or from mechani cal injuries as by storms or by waggon or implement. All such openings are a menace to the tree and endang6r its usefulness and longevity. Here is where a system...
ABOUT THAT BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
ABOUT THAT BOY._ (By Arthur D. Dean.). Wh1ut do I expect of the boy of four teen? Right at the start I expeot him to be a boy, not a cherub, not.a plain unadulterated boy. I expect that little old man, nor a sneak. Just he stands well on his feet, looks you in the eye and tells you the truth; that he sleeps when he sleeps, works when he works and plays when he plays; that he swims like a duck, runs likeo.a deer and sees like an eagle; that he plays fair on the field, at the school and in the home; that lie likes a dog, delights in woods and fields and be lieves in comrades; that he admires real men, stands by his heroes and looks up to his mother; that he sees in a violet, a sparrow or a worm, the touch of the hand of God. Furthermore, I expect that the boy has a father as well as a mother, a few brothers and sisters and a wise teanoher or two; that his father remembers that lie was once a boy; that his mother tempers her all-abiding love with jus tice; that his home is more than a ...
CURIOSITIES OF LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
CURIOSITIES. OF LANGUAGE. The following are a few linguistic wlimsicalities. The Germans call a thimble a 'finger hat," which it cer tainly is, and a grasshopper a "hay horse." A glove with them is a "hand shee," showing evidently that they wore shoes before gloves. Poultry is "feather cattle," whilst the names for the well-known substances oxygen and hydrogen are in their language "sour stuff" and "water stuff." The French, strange to say, have no verb "to stand," nor can a Frenchman speak of "kicking" anyone. The near 'est approach a Frenchman makes to it i lhis politeness is to threaten to "givo a blow with his foot"-tho same thiig to the recipient in each case, but it seems to want the direotness, the energy, of our "kick." Neither has lie any word for " baby," or for "home," or "comfort." The terms "upstairs" and "downstairs" are also unknown in French. The Hindus are said to have no word for "friend." The Italians have no equivalent for "hu mility."-'Mianchester Evening News.'...
GOOD NEWS FOR HUSBANDS. FAMILY DRESS BILLS REDUCED BY HALF. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 12 June 1914
GOOD NEWS FOR HUSBANDS. 'FAMILY DRESS BILLS REDUCED BY HALF. There is hope yet for the harassed huAsband who stands appalled at the size of his wife's millinery bills and the other everyday bills run up in the household. It is not what we eat that costs, it is what you wear, laments the average husband, but in all this dia tribe against the high cost of living, a glimmer of hope is appearing in the darkness for the American husband, and then, prob ably, for the Britisher, too. The wear ing of hats, boots, and stockings made of aluminium is to be made compulsory by Congress. Man, the head of the family, is to be released from some of the bills that come in every month to sadden his life. Someo:,e lhas discovered that these me tal hats can be made for a minimum price. The great value of this metal when used for feminine garments is that. it never wears out. This may seem a disadvantage to the woman who chan ges her gowns ten times a day and her hats every time she changes her gowns. B...
