THE WEST WIRfflERA Mill AND NATIMUK ADVERTISER FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 Cr Alex Philip was again anam^ imoasly elected President of the Kowree Shire. Report next week Mr H. Woolmer's baggy horse "Ginger," met his death on Sunday nnder circumstances which are worth, recording. "Ginger" was conyeying his human freight to the Mount, £u;d after crossing the bridge behind! tile school he saw an emu trotting along inside the fence skirting the road. No horse ever did take kindly to an emu, and "Ginger," though he had passed through 23 Wimmera summers was no exception. When the emu reached the corner of the paddock it wheeled round, boldly, and so did the old horse, but tremblingly. Horace jumped out, and tried to calm the frightened animal which he eventually induced to resume the journey, bub he didn't seem much good. A couple of iniles further on ' Ginger" was taken out of the trap and given the nose bag. Bat he didn't eat, and a little later dropped dead. We enter tain kindly memories of " ...

The New Language of the Air. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
The New Language of the Air. i , A new and.very picturesquo lan guage is being coined from Eng lish antl French words and odd bits of slang, to describe the various activities of the airmen and the draft in which they navigate the air. A "seaplane," "water-plane," "hy droplane," . or "water 'bus,'-' to give it - a few of its names, is. a flying machine fitted with floats so that it can rise from and return to the water. To "taxi" means to dash along the surface until the speed is suffi cient to rise. The "pusher" is a biplane with the propellor behind the planes. To "stall" a machine is bad amidship, and means that the machine is dri ven skyward at too steep an angle so that it flies tail downwards and The Meanings of some of the New Air Terms Illus trated (A) A '/ Volplane.

A BALLAD. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
A BALLAD, f * "You are old, Father William," the young man said, "And your hair has become very white ; And yet you incessantly stand on your head Do you think, at your age, it is right ?" "In my youth," Father William re plied to his son, "I feared it might injure the brain; But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none, Why, I do it again and again." "You are old," said the youth, " as I mentioned before, And have grown most uncommonly , fat ; Yet you turned a back-somersault in , at the door Pray, what is the reason of that ?" "In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks, "I kept all my limbs very supple By the use of this ointment-one, shilling the box Allow me to sell you a couple ?" "You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak For anything tougher than suet ; Yet you finished the goose, with the . bones and the beak Pray, how did you manage to do it ?" "In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law. And argued each case with my wife ; And the muscul...

A credit balance of a few shillings was shown. Mr alder presided. Every match played dur» ing last season was'won by the Wail team as in the previous season. Several members renovated the court on Friday, 2Stli August Eighteen points of rain have fallen and probably another point since the record was taken. This is a. matter for general rajoicing, as a water famine was threatened. Sev eral people still ha?e to cart water for domestic purposes It is hoped that the weather may improve now and assure a good harvest. Crops and grass were in dire need of ram, though the crops held out marvel> lously.

Concert and Dance. The Lovran Football Club held its annual concert and dance on Fiiday evening, 28th inst. As there is no suitable hall at Lowan it has been the custom to hold it in the Norad juha Mechanics' Hall, and as on pre vious occasion it was a great success. The night was beautifully finei and the roads left nothing to be desired for travelling. Consequently the attendance waslarge. In the absence of the president, Mr R. G. McClure, Mr E. W. Heard occupied the chair. The secretary, Mr W. G. Grant, had spared neither time or energy in securing first class talenc, and the club is very fortunate in having such an energetic officer. Messrs Hagelthora and Bolton, kindly lent their motor car to convey performers from Horsham, including Mis Cameron, Miss Beynon and Messrs Sawyer and Hoskin. At the conclusion of the programme Mr Grant proposed a vote of thanks to the performers, especially mention ing those who journeyed from Hor sham to render their most valuable assistance, and t...
Ladies' Column. AN APPLIQUE CUSHION COVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
AN APPLIQUE CUSHION COVEll. There is something very fascinating about applique work, and it is very effective for cosies, cushion covers, etc., and it entails much less la bour than elaborate embroidery, and often, gives as good, or better, results. A dainty cushion cover adorned with applique work is shown in the accompnaying illustration, and the design can be quite easily worked from our sketch. The cover itself is made of pale green soft silk, ..nd should measure about eighteen" in dies each way, without reckoning the hemstitched frill,, which sfco'Jid be about three or four inches . in width. The velvet applique is of a darto green colour, and is cut out in the shape shown by Diagram A, . on the right of the sketch, and. edged with a dull shade of old gold gal loon, a colpur which always looks so well on a background of green. The cover at the back is made to fasten after the , manner of an ordinary pillow-slip, with a flap and three buttons and buttonholes, and this is illustr...

WILLIE'S PUZZLE. "Mother," said little Willie, who had just been corrected for mak ing a slight departure from the strict path of truth, "were you al ways good when you were a little girl "Yes, always." "And didn't you ever tell stories?" No, never." "Did father , ever tell them, then?" he said. "Certainly not," she replied&lt; "Nor grandma ?" "No." "Nor grandpa ?" "No, of course not." Willie's brow contracted for a mo- ' ment ; then he gave a sigh. "Well, what T can't make out," he observed, thoughtfully, "is where I got the habit from." A bucket was once the innocent cnw.se of a terrible war. Nine cen turies ago some soldiers of Modena stole a bucket as a joke from a public well at Bologna. When (hey refused fo restore it, scrimmag ing commenced between tlie soldiers of (be rival States, ami a war en sued, which spread mit.il it invol ved the greater part of Europe.

ART'S BRUTALITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 4 September 1914
ART'S BRUTALITY., 1 -"I know Amos conies in for a lot of praise because lie hunts with a camera, instead of a gun," Forbes began in a slightly acrid tone. "It never seems to strike people that" there may be more than one kind, of brutality." "What's the matter with Ames ?" demanded one of' his clubmates. "Out in Canada last autumn," Forbes resumed, "1 went oft' b}" my self one day, when Ames was fid filing' over iiis kodak, and I stum bled full on a black bear. Be cause I was Iho only thing in sight, very likely, 1 became the immediate object of her attentions. I had only a slight lead, but I was go ing pretty well when Ames poked through the brush and took in the situation. " 'Hold o;i there, old chip !' he yelled. ' You're too far ahead. I can't get you both in.' "
