UPPER YARRA SHIRE ENGINEER. QUESTION OF ATTENDANSC,: S.IN SHIRE. PREVIOUS MOTION RESC1NI)El). At the lmceting of the Upi,pir Ya.rra Shire Council on Moonday, Cr Ewart moved that the resollitian passed previously, requesting the en. gincer to devote two days ,t week to the shire, be resciuded. It \was not, a, fair thing to ask this of Jlr Sambell. They were right int he, moiddle of large works for the Cou.. try lRoads Board, which lMr :uln. bell was supervising, and it wolu[t be a mistake to jeopardise this work. They were getting the work of tw,) men for £200 per year, and were receiving good value for their monet. M'r Sanmbell had reported on a larg~ iimuber of schemes for whlich ni) charge had been made, and Ihai; at all times done his best for thi1 council.

TURKEY AND THE WAR THE INVASION OF EGYPT. SOME INTERESTING SIDE-LIGHTS ON THE TURKISH ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
TURKEY AND THE WAR THE INVASION OF EGYPT. SOME INTERESTING SIDE-LIGHTS ON THE TUIIKISH ARMY. Mr. J. M. Fawaz, B.A., of 1040 Drum mond street, Carlton, who writes from a first-hand knowledge of his subject, contributes some interesting details re specting the foe which menace the Suez Canal, and who are possibly to be the first to feel the quality of the Austra lian Forces. He writes: Now that Turkey has actually begun her mad attempt to invade Egypt, it is interesting to know something of the nature and quality of her resources. It is estimated that the whole of her strength in Syria is 100,000 soldiers. Part of this force (about 20,000) is to occupy Mt. Lebanon, and ward off any attempt by the Allies to occupy the Syrian Coast; and the other part (about S0,000) is to invade Egypt. That, how ever, is not a fixed division, because, realising the stupendous task she has entered upon, she is now withdrawing the Lebanon army, and is constantly adding to her invading strength which, howe...

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
TURF TOPICS. - I-- (By "Flemington.") At one time it was hoped that the inter-State competition at the approach ing Autumn racing campaign would be well up to the average, but it is now plain that the invading army will be a comparatively small one this time. As however, it will include such talent as Mountain Knight, Woorak and Carlita "class" will not be lacking in the visiting team even if it is below the mark in more numbers. It is difficult to say why so many owners from other States have declined the Victorian trip this season. So far as the Sydney-siders are concerned the proximity of their own Autumn carni val may have something to do with it. Some very valuable prize-money is offered the April programme at Randwick, and this it seems has proved sufficient to keep nearly all the New South Wales owners and trainers at home this Autumn. Up to this writing, Woorak had not reached Flemington, but by- the time these lines are converted into type; the chestnut is likely to be safe...
CLOSE SEASON FOR WILD DUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
CLOSE SEASON FOR WILD DUCK. No great surprise has been created by the decision of the State Cabinet to adopt the recommendation of the Game and Fisheries Department to de clare the, whole of the year 1915 a close season for wild duck, but some irritation is being expressed by shoot ers that the determination was not ar rived at much earlier. The open sea son for wild duck usually commences on 11th February, and many sportsmen had completed their arrangements for the season, only to find that at prac tically the last minute, they will not be able to carry them out. Enquiries made long ago by the Game and Fish eries officers showed that wild duck and quail in Victoria were decreasing great ly, and having this knowledge, sports men are complaining that so much de lay should have been occasioned in an- nouncing the uroclamation. Mr F. Lewis, Acting Director of Game and Fisheries, stated to-day that the scarcity of water all over the State rendered a close season during the whole of 1915...

THE TACTFUL GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
THE TACTFUL GIRL. The tactful girl is welcomed every where. :-,She is usually successful in the home, in society and business, besides being a comforter in trouble and one who can enter heartily into another's heartiness. To be tactful one must be utterly free from self-consciousness and try to think only of the requirements of others. A ready listener is always welcomed in all grades of society, and the -tactful girl will patiently listen to the woes and ills of other people without letting them see how uninter esting they are to her, or, in return, repeating her own troubles. What good can it do any one to di vulge a family secret or failing? A tactful girl will find no interest in this kind of conversation, and will intro duee a more pleasant topic. She can always keep a quiet tongue in her head when necessary, and will hesitate to spread unkind gossip. When in company of the opposite sex, a girl will show her tactfulness by the interest which she takes in the likes and dislikes ...
THE SERENE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
THE SERENE PIG. It is with distinct pleasure that we pen a tribute to the meek and lowly pig, author of our breakfast bacon (says the "National Provisioner"). We have felt for some time that this philosopher-for the pig must be a philosopher to endure the slings and slurs of thoughtless man-was not re ceiving his due in the public press. Poets have sung the praises of the meditative cow. The horse, noblest of steeds, has been portrayed upon a million canvasses, and found a place in epic and in psalm. The hen has been recommended to take the place of the eagle upon our "far-flung ban ners," but until this time, no one has come forward with a truly worthy en - conium upon the pig. Well, here it is--a tribute to an un complaining fellow that seeks no fav ors save the privilege of plodding with his face fastened upon the ground. Consider for a moment the pig. The pig is Nature's sedative. He is the antithises of excitement and the antidote of worry. When frayed nerves cry out in protest...
THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
THE DAY. You boasted the Day, and you toasted the Day, And now the Day has come, Blasphemer, braggart, and coward all, Little you reek of the numbing ball, The blasting Shell or the "white arm's" fall, As they speed poor humans home. You spied for the Day, and you lied for the Day, And woke the Day's red spleen,. Monster who asked God's aid Divine, Then strewed His seas with the ghastly mine; Not all the waters of the Rhine Can wash thy foul hands clean. You dreamed for the Day, and you schemed for- the Day Watch how the Day will go, (Slayer of age, and youth and prime. (Defeneoeless slain for never a crime), Thou are steeped in blood as a hog in slime, False friend and cowardly foe. You have sown for the Day, you have .grown for the Day, Yours. is the harvest red, Can you hear the groans and the awful cries, Can you see the heap of the slain that liesd And sightless turned to the flame-split skies The glassy eyes of the dead. You have wronged for the Day, you have longed for the Da...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
FOR WOMEN During the past few months (says the "Daily Chronicle") women in in creasing numbers have been practising rifle ahooting. There have always been a few enthusiasts who have been -among the most faithful members at both the outside ranges in summer, and the. inside ones in winter, but various causes have conspired to ren der the sex in general apathetic in the matter. One of these has undoubtedly been the difficulty of learning. Most of the covered ranges are in towns, and as they have been got up by men for . their own instruction and amusement, women members are not included. For instance, in London, only two or three clubs admit women, and then they are only allowed to shoot on special days. In consequence they have not been given many opportunities to compete in matches, as the opposing team in all probability could not provide competi tion of their own sex to shoot against them. Thus their prowess has -not been encouraged by ambition, and -the desire to excel. Now, howe...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 February 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") The wheat market nowadays is in a ondition that providcs 1penty of men al exercise for those who attempt to olloes its vagaries. Owing to an al iost complete absence of supplies, ope ations in wheat during last week re resented an insignificant total quan itv, and the market was without ani ation throughout. Direct in the coun r there were transactions covering e.eral hundredls of bags, on the basis f the rates quoted in the city, the lat er receiving sonfirmation in the sales, bhich were effected at public auction. he a11nouncCeiment that the Government ad made arrangements for the im ortation of only -1,000,000 bushels of rain, welco?me as it was, especially to lour millers, afforded no immediate re ef to the local situation, and the dilli ulito of buyers was not diminished in he least. So keen has been the de mand for lots suitable for seed that holders have been able to exact almost any terms, and even for faulty samples there have been eager p...
