STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 12 November 1914
STRANCER THAN FICTION. :(BY PTrin.) Answer to correspondents. '-Old Bubscriber" asks did Peter notice that Mr. Hunt is repotred to have expressed the opinion that Northern Victoria is past praying for, but that it is usual for an excpetionally good season to follow a drought year, and it will probably be so in this case, and if he thinks this is evidence of design in the regulation of creation. Answer.-Peter refuses to be drawn into a profitless theological discussion. If he could account for all the problems of the beyond.he would do so, although many good men mighti possibly be thereby thrown out of a job, and the present is' a bad time to further glut the labor market or the wallaby track.

If Mr. Hunt ...
