WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When we have a special work to do we first "clear the. decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a. new line of goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clean...

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilflelds in the Baku district of Russia,,on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-glycerine were brought down by rail from Derbend, aid deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men a. a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek named Darios, opened one of, the dnims for some reason best knowni to himself, and "decanted" -a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing vod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar., Shortly afterwards' there entered a workman named Borko vitch. who was famous for the bois terous hilarity-of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh te:. The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten tori...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reseived. CHAPTER XVII. Sheila Danvers' gay season did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never highly colored, became paler and paler. She longed for the country; she pined to see Dearma again, and, above all, she wanted to be in the hour'y and daily presence of Shamus O'Doyle. By Bellairs' request, his wife told Sheila nothing of her intended visit to Melbourne, and the girl naturally supposed tl.at Aunt Margaret was go ing for a short time to Sunnyside un til Uncle Peter was able to take his holiday. Little did she guess what had actually taken place, and Mrs. Bellairs, notwithstanding that queer mingling of pain and rejoicing which filled her heart, did- not dare to tell her. Bellairs was a keen sportsman. He was also a wonderful climber, and knew every inch o...

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914

POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are asked. It ,is said by some to be an "extra gift," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from-the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also ths dead." On an examination paper on "Hog we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the' Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy inspir at...

PROMPT ATTENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914

PROMPT ATTENTION. An instance of perseverance is re corded of a sharp young commercial from Redditch, who waited upon a gentleman at Newark. The custom er's shop had doors for entrance and exit at ,both ends. Mr. H., the com mercial, called upon this worthy, and the following conversation took place: "You are perhaps not aware, sir, tnat I represent 'S.,' of Redditch?" "Yes, I am aware. But I require no thing. Besides, I do with B. and Co., and they serve me well." "Perhaps you will look at my sam ples, sir?" "I tell you, man, I'm quite full; you annoy me." "But if you were just to favor me with a look, sir, I think an order might---" "I'll give you an order now: Leave my shop!" "Certainly, sir," said the commer cial, as he bade the man good morn ing, and made a .speedy excit by the lower door; but only to re-enter the shop by the upper door, addressing the man as though he had never seen him before: "Good morning, sir; I have the honor of representing 'S.,' of Red ditch.

JUNIOR FOOTBALL. ARCADIA V CANIAMBO WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 18 June 1914

JUNIOR FOOTBALL. ARCADIA V CANIAMBO WEST. Tho above teams met for the first time yesterday, on the Arcadia ground. Great interest was taken in the match, which was attended by a largo crowd, The game, which was keenly contested. was spoiled by a strong south wind blowing toward the northern goal. It was won by Caniamba West, and is easily described, for (with the exception that in the first quarter Arcadia kicked ono behind, and in the last quarter Caniambo scored 1-1 against the wind) the team having the wind was con tInually bombarding the northern goal, and the ball was repeatedly out of bounds. Up to half-time it was any- body's game--Arcadia having 6 scoring shots and the West 5. After the in- terval, however, Caniambo's ruck and puiok passing was too good for the local men; they put up a big lead in the 3rd puarter, which secured them the victory, Arcadia, with the wind in the last quarter, worked hard to avert de- feat, hut the number of men on the ball hampered play, and mad...

A WINTER GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914

A WINTER GRASS. " My contribution to this sub ject," a Tasmanian correspondent writes," will be in connection with the Italian rye grass. This, in my opinion, is entitled to a leading. place among winter growers, though its value is not sufficiently appreciated, owing to the fact that it is generally sown with ineuffi cient manure, in which case it is of little use as a catch crop, unless it has the good luck to be sown on a very rich, moist piece of land, and meet with a favorable season. If, however, care be taken to manure liberally, either with guano, bone dust or farmyard manure (where available), it will then be found to be a long way the most profitable to be put in for the winter feed. The ground should be ploughed in November and December, and left to fallow till March or middle of February, then manured, the ma nure well worked into the ground, and the ground then fine sown with two to three bushels of Italian rye grass, or, if desired for two or three years' crop, the fol...

THE GOULBURN VALLEY SEAT. MR M'CLELLAND'S CANDIDATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914

THE GOULBURN VALLEY SEAT. -4--- MB M'CLELLAND'S OANDIDA. TURE. Mr A. M'Bride M'Clelland, a Liberal candidate for the Goul burn Valley seat, to be rendered vacant by the retirement of Mr Graham, opened his election cam paign at the public hall, Nathalia, on Thursday evening, There was a good attendance, Cr F H Farze, J.P., occuping the chair. The candidate gave his reasons for not submitting his name to the People's Party for the present election, on the grounds that the election was decided on the pre ference vote. He was not under the People's Party or the Australian Women's National League, but would be a follower of the present Liberal Government. He was in favor of elective Ministries, as he considered it would do away with persistent office seeking and party strife, thus giving to the country the full benefit of the best brains in the House. He was a strong supporter of decentralisation, As a means of bringing about this object be laid stress on the neces sity of tne Government...

THE DREDGING EVIL. REPLY OF THE MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 22 June 1914

THE DREDGING EVIL. REPLY OF TiE MINISTER. A deputation representing the Ovens River Anti-Pollution Asso ciation, the Chamber of Agricul ture, the Waterworks Trusts Asso ciation, and the Australian Natives' Association, waited on the Minis ter for Mines (Mr Drysdale Brown) with a request that the recommen dations of the Dredging Inquiry Board should be carried out with as little delay as possible. Mr T Graham (president of the Ovens River Anti-Pollution Asso ciation) said that provision had been made to guard against future intruders, but nothing had been done to combat the tactics of exist ing dredging companies. Safe guards had been inserted in the leases, but their observance had not been insisted on by the Ad ministration. One result of dredg ing was that St John's wort, which originally came from the race course near Bright, was being car ried to other districts by the Ovens. It was ridiculous for the Ministry to endeavor to cope with the St John's wort in some localities withou...

A LAY OF THE LEVEE BRIDGE, No. 2. lv T.E.H. In the muerning I stood on the bridge, Aed all around looked blue From horizon to the river ridge, Suggesting a thing or two. Then a creepy, sickly sensation Caused me to slowly eink, For the decking seemed in vibration, Wideninog many a bchink. Belo the chasm so dirty and deep, Looked ready to swallow me qluite; But a plank I greedily seized to keep Me coomfolted in my plight; Wheu a mtagpie chattered and mocked, As around it darted and flew "You may think that's gum, but don't be shocked To be told it's not true blue." IBy tIle hour ol noon I was quite half through That bridge as it gently swayed, Aud nmy legs bodangling from No. 2, Were "'cutting" when so displayed.

Mr C J Nash, of "Elysium" (Nalinga), and" Floresco" (Broken River), is one of those orchardists who are full of enterprise and ev'er widening their sphere of know ledge and usefulness. He has now at a cost of £10 10s brought to Sliepparton four young trees of the Avacado, or Alligator pear variety-sent to his order from California. The importations were on view in W MIacdermott and Co's win dow, Fryers-street, and attracted a great deal of attention. There are two of what are known as the Lyone class, one Ganter and one Harman-all avacadoes. The tree is a vigorous grower, of beautiful reddish foliage, and very produc tive, the fruit being declared to be ideal in every respect. And one of its greatest recommendations is that fruit can be. gathered from January to September-excellent at any stage during that long period. Mr Nash intends to keep the fou...
