A PRIEST ATTACKED. VIOLENT STRUGGLE WITH ASSAILANT Echuca, Sunday. Rev. Father Foley, of Echuca, had an exciting experience on Friday night while crossing the Murray bridge on his way to Moama to visit Rev. Father Killian. 11hen about half way across the bridge Father Foley was met by a stranger, who demanded money. Up on the reverend gentleman stating that he had no money, the man caught him by the shoulders, and knocked him down, and viciously attacked him. Exerting all his strength, Father Fo ley "winded" his assailant by strik ing him a blow in the stomach with his fist. This caused the man to slacken his hold, and Father Foley, wrenching himself tfree, made off towards Echuca. The stranger did not attempt to fol low, but fired two shots at him. For tunately these missed their mark. The matter was reported to the police, anti they are now scouring the town and district searching for the miscreant. Although-a vigilant search has been made, no trace of the perpetrator of the attac...

DEATH OF AN OLD RESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 31 March 1914
DEATH OF AN OLD RESIDENT. One by nie the old pioneers of the district are passing away, and we re gret to chronicle the death of Mr. Richard May-. of Loch Park, Traral gon, at the ripe old age of St years. Deceased was well known and highly respected throughout the district. The late MIr. May was a native of Corn wall, where he followed the occupa tion of nmillwright. He married in 1S53, and came to Australia the fol lowing year, when he went to the gold rush at Creswick, and had varying success at gold tining for some time. -Ie then went to the New Zealand gold rush, but sibsequently returned to Creswick, and erected the machinery at the Junction mine there.

In company- with the late Jas. Mitchell, he went in search of land to select, and these two gentlemen were the first to selec...
BOWLED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
BOWLED OUT. About once a month this paper re ceives picture postcards and other photos from Westraians abroad, par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra vellers on camel-back in the vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. More than often we have been in clined to doubt the bona-fides of some of those photos, as the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not. stopping at Egypt, as shown in the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of .Egypt. Last week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a -well-known Westralian and hiis wife were seen seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to be faked in ,by the double photo process, the picture of the tour i:-s anid donkeys hav...
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Comte now' to the actor's everyday life. If you are a comedian you can't get any symlpathy. Ever hear two mn~n discussing the illness of a co med!!an? Jones will say. "I hear Jack C'an. not has appendicitis." "You don't say." grins Brown. And then they bulth burst out laughing. If an actor ha'pgens to be a tragedian it is thl u:her way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to with bated breath. "Did you hear about II. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith will say. "Dear me." Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the, lid is screwed down.-Fred Niblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine." "I owe my succe s, chiefly to obser a tion, ina inat ion and concentra tion. All n my life I have cultivated these three faculties.

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. The recent announcement in a con temporary that the Ulster men are trying to institute a tlenionstration,. when every mailn, woman and child will wear a flower as a token of their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one how often flowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist antd Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temiple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and white of pnrity. our niational emblem is the rose; the Legitimist Party of France formed the League of the Rose in imitation of our Primrose League, while owing to Giadstone's foitdness for white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their part-, but the idea was not adopt ed. The primrose. it is said, was Bea consfield's favorite flower, and has been chosen by hiis followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, whilo in France the vi...
SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
SPORT AND RELIGION. '"I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause if I did it would offend some nmemnters of my congregation; secondl ly, because. I do not think that it is desirable; and, thirdly, because I think that it.would be wrong for me, with my meagre stipend, to bet. I simply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive 'them away from religion. If they can race and bet with a clean conscience, I do not think that God will be offended. There is nothing wrong nwith clean sport any more than with stock exchange speculations, and yet .many people:get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gam'bling on the Stock Exchange.- I am glad to be able to say that. horse-racing is improving. and I believe that it 'will continue to iinprove.' I have much in common 'with sporting men, and I am always :pleased. to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. It will .be:a' sorry day for God and for the church when the feeli...
