HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
* HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. January is of Latin origin, from the word Januarius, named by the ancient Romans in honor of their so called "god," Janus, to whom the sea son of the year was sacred. February comes from the Latin word Februarius, derived from feb rum, which, in the Sabine language, meant a "purgative"; hence comes the- Roman festival of lustration and expiation. March is named in honor of Mars, the Roman god of war. April derived its name from the La tin, Aprilis, and that from Aperire, which means to open. May is a name, the origin of which comes from the Romans, in honor of Mfaia, the mother of Mercury and daughter of Atlas. June is a name that all will readily think of when they read the history of the goddess Juno. In this month, she seemed, from all accounts, to be greatly worshipped. July is in honor of the great Roman, Caius Julius Caesar, who was born at this season of the year. August was named in honor of the great Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar. September was...
FOOTBALL. SHEPPARTON v. ECHUCA. AN UNEXCITING GAME WON BY SHEPPARTON BY 55 POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
FOOTBALL. SIIEI'PARTON v. ECIIuc. AN UNEXCITING GAMEr WON BY SuetP. 'anzTON BY 55 POINTs. At the local Recreation Reserve yes. terday the Shepparton and Eohooa teams met for the first time this season in competition for the premiership of the G.V.F.L. - The visitors arrived by spe cial train at about 3 p.m. accompanied by a very fair number of supporters; the playing strength of the team was some. what weakened, however, by the ab sence of Murray, Corry, Maloney (2), Kirohoffer, Crump. Three "profes-. sionale," Fielding, l'orbes, and Brown, were included in Echuca's team; but while the latter pair was seen to advan tage, Fielding (who acted as captain) did not show out as prominently as was expoeted, owing to a severe attack of in fluenza. The Shepparton team was the same as the previous week, with the ex ception that Norman Sandy took the place of Joe Pattison (injured at Kyab ram). The weather was bright, but a bleak south wind made matters rather unpleasant from a spectator's poi...
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "I have .a little-story to tell you, boys," the old doctor said to the young people the other evening. "One day-a long hot day it had been, too -I met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you would take this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. Now I was a boy of twelve, not fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had been at work since daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and dress for singing school. My first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my lung day's- work. If I did re fuse lie would go himself-he was a gentle, patient old man-but some thing stopped me=-one of God's good angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' lie said, 'I was going myself, but somehow I don't feel very strong to day....
SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
SEE"D POTA'OES. Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had rea son to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to blame to some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed. The seed potato which is most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from his lines all that fail to come within this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser and to those who handle his consignments. Not only will he be able to command a higher price in a bare market, but in a full market his stock will 'bring him quick and good returns, while that of his less careful neighbor will hang fire and possibly at the last -be sacrified. Diseased and scabby potatoes should on no account be allowed to pass. Knobby and misshapen sets should also be strictly excluded. It needs but very few of these to completely spoil a whole line. The result of growing from the same stock year after year would...
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is the actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give it in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since aMr. Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile.

His Turn Came. She stood there and glared at him. "And you mean to stand there and ask me to press youir trousers," she demanded. ".Why, yes, my dear," responded Mr. Stubb; "is that asking too much?" "I should say it is, John Henry Stubb. I'd have you know that when you married me you did not marry a flat-iron." That evening his turn came. "John, dear," said Mrs. Stubb, "just button up my blous' before you go. There's a good man." "Nay, nay, Maria. When you ac cepted me you did not say 'yes' to a buttonhook," and, picking up his gl yes, he departed, leaving Maria too amazed to answer.

Chill Proof. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914
Chill Proof. The Duke of Fotheringill had given a great feast at Fotheringill Castle to commemorate the coming-of-age of his son and heir, the dashing Lord Highcollar. To this function had been invited the journalistic representative of a leading "daily." On the scribe's return to Fleet-st. he was asked to relate his adventures at the ducal home, and, among the questions, someone asked him "it the duchess's affability had not somewhat embarrassed him." "Not a bit of it," he replied, with that air of serene ease, calmness, and self-satisfaction which so eminently becomes him. "Before I took up newspaper work, my boy, I used to test refrigerators!"

A Hint to Lovers. Willie and Maggie had been busy courting for over two years, meeting every night in Hope-street. About a fortnight ago, Willie, in parting with his beloved, made the usual remark: "I'll meet ye in Hope-street, next Wednesday nicht. Mind ye be punc tual."
