IT HAPPENED IN THE DICTIONARY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

IT HAPPENED IN TUB DICTIONARY. I A zouave with a zebra, Oil a zero night In Juno, Wooed a Zulu on n zebu, 'Neath a zlngaroguish moon: In his zeal he strummed a zither, Called as witness Mister Zeus, As be told his Zulu Lulu That he loved her like the deuce. 'You're a zany," she retorted, "For your name begins with 55, There's another zone for lovers, That looks very good to me"; Then the zebu zig-zagged onward, Left the Zouavo in a daze, While the fickle Zulu maiden Sought a husband In the A's. This is the time of year, cold and windy, when you should give any red nosed man the benefit of the doubt. A trained ostrich recently discon certed Its exhibitor at a country show by continually endeavoring to break away-from all restraint and to climb aver the footlights Into the orchestra.

A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. " Next to Alexander tho Great, who In his youth subdued Bucephalus, per haps the most famous o£ all horse breakers was John Hares', the Olilo lan, who died at the ago of 38, after having amassed a fortune by Ills skill." With the awakening of Ills mental energies, tho boy realised that tliero was something wrong In tho preval ent method ol breaking horses. His cUlldlBh soul recoiled at the cuffs and blows with which drivers were wont to subdue their animals. Throughout his schooldays tho subject of his com positions was "Man's Best Friend—the Noblo Horse." Ills most ambitious offort was a rhyme, In which ho sang tho gospel of "ltlndnesa, patience and firmness' in dealing with tho brute creation. Tho turning point In his boyhood came on his twelfth birthday. His father, now an extenBive dealer In horses, presented to him an unbroken pony, which the lad proceeded to train a»cer his own ideas.

FOOTBALL GEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

i FOOTBALL^ GEMS. Players whose play may be criticised in this column must re member 'tis in the interest of the game only and not personal. Nor should they consider by one item of praise they are to be always so praised. Present form alone will be dealt with. Let the dead, past . bury its dead. A line of advice:—Don't talk about it, do it. Training alone will give you staying power, and without it you should not play. If you cannot last more than half a game drop out until you can. Others may be able to do 30. The man who enters the last term fresh and strong is far better than a better player who is " fagged." Practice the long low (stab) kick, it is more effective than the " cloud puncher." Be guided by your captain, he is supposed to know. Play with system, and don't run 20 yards and lose the ball when a dash of i lialf that distance will give you a kick and possibly a mark to a ;omrade in a good position. Always remember the umpire is watching (or should be) so play the ball. Y...

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. A boy of twelvo was found wandor Ing one day In tho fields near Genoa, Italy, by an Austrian police agent, and was roused from a mood of abstrac tion by tho question, "What are you doing?" "Thinking," was the terse re ply. That ovenlng, his father, a pro fessional man already under Buspl slon for the same offense, was Inform ed of his Bon's occupation, and told also that the Austrian government did not permit of "thinking" by its sub jects. That was about the year 1S20. A few years after the boy was In pri son—still thinking! In the year 1849 all the roads to Mi lan were filled with armed and march ing columns—made up, not of Aub trlans, but of Italians. On the main one running toward the Mediterranean the heaviest body was moving. A great stir waB visible one morning. A tremendous shout was heard down the entire lino. It was taken up from brigade to company, from hamlet to hamlet, village to village, town to town, as the stirring report was heard, and m...

WHITEWASHING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

WHITEWASHING TREES. Doubtless the old-time farmer who whitewashed his fruit and other trees about his house did so mainly to pre sent a neat appearance. But many of them did It as well to kill insects and their eggs which were harboring un der the dead bark of the trees. The ubg of lime as one of the ingredients in mixtures for the killing'of insects and the sporeB of Injurious fungi, has been in practice for very many years. When a boy learning the gardening business, I well remember the head gardener using a.mixture of lime and sulphur and common garden soil to paint grape vine canes in the winter season. The garden soil was for the purpose of giving the mixture the hue of the grape cane, that it might retain its natural appearance. The foliage of these vines were never troubled by insects or blights. At the same time that the vines were painted a little Bulphur was dusted about on th» com mon flues, which were almost wholly > used for heating greenhouses In those dayB, to keep...

BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. When the late James Anthony Froude published his volume of scep tical reflections, entitled "The Nem esis of Faith," Thomas Carlyle's gruff comment on the book was that Froude "should burn his own smoke and not trouble other people's nostrils with It." This criticism may have wounded Froude, but It certainly corrected him, for he soon lost Ills tendency to turn his heart inside out for other peo ple's Inspection, and though he was always a doubter, his denials were few, and he did not offer his doubts to the public as a wholesome spiritual food. MoBt of ub make more or less smoke; we do not burn with a clear bright flame. When a preacher tells his congregations his doubts and per plexities and guesses, he Is throwing off smoke. When a man parades his trials and difficulties and displays. Ir ritability that everything is not going to his mind, he is blowing off smoke. We do not say a human life can be free from this waste product any more than a fire, but they ar...

Football. Korong District Central Association. Korong Vale v. Wedderburn Saturday last witnessed the first matches in the second round of the Korong District Central Association. The Wedderburn team visited Korong Vale and met the local team on their own ground, where they received their first defeat for the season. Wed derburn lined up astrongeighteen, and the only difference in the Vale team was the inclusion of Jack man, who took the place ol Manton. In the first quarter Wedderburn started off with a rush, and made the game very fast from the bounce of the ball. The play was open and fairly evei. throughout the quarter, and the visitors had scored four points to the home team's one goal when i.ne Deu rang ac tne end ot tne quarter. In the second quarter the play steadied down, and it appeared as if Wedderburn had ;nade the pace too warm foi themselves in the first quaiter. Korong Vale easily had the best of this term, and the succeeding terms as well, keeping Wedder burn constant...

BARE LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 27 June 1914

BARE-LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. The revels of the Daphne Greek pageant, In which many bare-limbed, airily-clad girls and several male dan cers, in similar classic freedom of garb, took part, formed a much-dis cussed topic of conversation among members of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The pageant took place at an Art Institute, and no men witnessed It except those who partici pated. All the members of the Federation agreed as to the artistic beauty of the spectacle, but there was a con siderable variance of opinion as to the propriety of the proceedings and the lack of drapery which character ised it. ' One delegate to the Federation de clared . that the costumes worn by the girls In the pageant were modest In comparison with some of the ex treme fashionable effects worn by cer tain delegates at a dance which re presented the pursuit of Daphne by Apollo.

OR EAT FAMINES. Since history began there have been 350 mighty famines, each of wblch killed 'thousands, and most of which carried oft people by millions. The Scriptures speak of famines in the tlmo of Abraham, and the story of| the seven years' famine which pre vailed when Joseph was secretary of Pharaoh's treasury Is a matter of Bib lical history. Rome had Its. famines hundreds of years before Christ, and about 300 years after Christ wheat was worth 400 plecos of silver a bushel In An tiocb, and about 100 years later par ents were eating their children In Italy to keep themselves from starv ing.
