MEAT CAUSES BAD TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917
MEAT CAUSES BAD TEMPER. Do you know that meat-eating is said to be responsible for bad tem per? And, by way of proof, attention is drawn to Britishers who have the reputation of 'being the heaviest meat eaters, and are credited with possess ing the most fiery tempers. Our French Allies eat very little meat. They like fruit, vegetables, salads, a little fish, and a little chick en. The average Englishman eats more meat in a day than a French man does in a week. The conse quence is that the French are the n ost polite and good-tempered of na tions. But the Japanese prove the con tention best. The majority of- the Japanese people live on rice, fruit, sweet meat and fish. Their temper ance and delicacy at table give them the best dispositions in the world. On the streets of Japan there is never any fighting or quarrelling. Tolerance, courtesy, high-bred and ceremonious manners are as preva lent in Japan as grumbling is in this country. The philosophy of this is that meat is a stimulant,...

Sam the Sprucer, He Discourses of War Rations and Other Measures. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917
Sam the Sprucer, He Discourses pf War Rations and Other Measures. By P. W. Thomas. "Down at our hospital," said Sam, "we've been put on emergency ra tions, what you might call Devonpor tions of meat and bread. Only the convalescents, you know; the great hungry, hearty eaters like myself. The bed cases still have the chicken broth made of rabbit. But we're sup posed not to exceed the 2y2\b. limit, and any man found putting on flesh is at one court-martialled and put on milk and water diet, chiefly water, until his belt fits him once more. "Not that I mind! But it's a bit awkward when we have stew, which we mostly do. For instance, the mess orderly keeps a book in which he puts down the amount of meat eaten by each man each day. So when it's stew, he has to dig out the nubbly bits, weigh 'em up, and flop 'em back again. And that sort of thing doesn't improve stew, you know. "Taking it all round, what with the sugar shortage, the meat rations, and the lights down, you people over here ...
AMERICA'S OLDEST PEAR TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917
AMERICA'S OLDEST PEAR TREE. There is a wonderful pear tree still flourishing and bearing fruit which was planted nearly 300 yfears ago in the village of Salem, Mass. At that time Governor Endicott, being very interested in fruit-farming, sent to Dorchester for an English pear tree. After some considerable time the tree arrived in a somewhat dried-up condition, but being very carefully planted and watched over by Gover nor Endicott himself, it survived -the long journey, and became, after some years, a most noted fruit-tree. It is carefully tended and surrounded by a fence. Every visitor to Denver, .Mass., seizes the opportunity of see ing this remarkable tree, which grows near the Denver River. AVlien Governor Endicott died, in 1665, he left the famous tree to his daughter's care, making special mention of it in his will.
Journalism of the Future A Lunar Episode. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917
Journalism of the Future A Lunar Episode. The earth will soon be played out lor some o£ our sensational journal ists. Operations will need to be ex tended to take in the universe. Here is the sort of thine we shall be read ing fifty years hence: The scene was one o£ supernatural weirdness. Tall, lantastic mountains reared their seamed peaks over a dreary waste of igneous rocks and burned-out lava beds. Deep lakes of black water stood motionless as glass i under frowning, honeycombed crags, from which ever and anon dropped crumbled masses with a sullen plunge. Vegetation there was none. Bitter cold reigned, and ridges o£ black and shapeless rocks cut tho horizon on all side3. An extinct vol cano loomed against a purple sky, black as night and as old as tho world. The firmament was studded with immense stars that shone with a wan and spectral light. Orion's belt hung high above. Aliebaran faintly shone many mil lions of miles away, and the earth gleamed like a new-risen moon with a lu...
FIRST TO ADOPT CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 June 1917
FIRST TO ADOPT CONSCRIPTION. Switzerland was the first European c untry to adopt universal military service. The original founders of the Swiss Confederation enacted that whoever shirked military training was declared "devoid of honor and perjured," and his house was vowed to destruction. Should a man summoned to take part in a military expedition prove unable to respond, owing to illness or some other valid reason, lie had to furnish a capable substitute at his own expense. From the earliest days of the Con federation, too, the military authori ties made special provisions for tend ing the wounded. In this respect they seem to have been in advance of their times.

Flood Tragedy at Wan garatta. SIX LIVES LOST. AT about 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon of last week there was a dreadful tragedy, and it was witnessed by a large number of people who were assembled in the vicinity of King Bridge watching rescue operations. Cr. John Nicol, who was the first to fully realise the dangerous predicament in which residents of Wilson Rd. would he placed when the full force of the flood waters was felt, had early in the afternoon brought his horse and spring dray to assist householders. The water had risen about 2ft over the road at the southern end of the approach to the biidge, and the current ran with much force. Mr Nicol made several trips and entered upon what was intended as his last load, as the water continued to rise quickly. With him on this occasion were Mrs Lavinia Richards, her three daughters (Gladys, age 16 years ; Florrie, aged 14 ; and Lily, aged 12), Mr James Lee (an aged invalid), Masters Don M'Nicol, and Percy Lee, each aged three years....

The Ovens Election. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917
The Ovens Election. [ WRITING in the "Advertiser" on Saturday last, "Scriptus" says:-"So far the Ovens is the only electorate in the North Eastern district where there is any definite an nouncement of National or Liberal opposition to the sitting member. That j Labor will have another try may be taken ! for granted and that a candidate to run in that interest will have to be found outside the constituency seems equally certain, but there appears to be plenty of Liberal or National aspirants In addition to those mentioned in last Saturday's 'Ovens and Murray Advertiser,' I have heard two others mentioned whose names I am not at liberty to mention. If five or more candidates run there is considerable dan ger of Labor winning the seat. The vote as we all know is a compact one, and in such a contingency as just mentioned the Labour candidate would undoubtebly top the poll on the first count with a strong chance of increasing the lead on the second, third and possibly fourth prefer ences...
