WIVES WON BY CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

WIVES WON BY CHANCE. Some of the strangest roads leading to the altar arc the "wife contests," in which the wife is won entirely by chance, and where Cupid has little to do with the subsequent marriage cere mony. One of the oddest of these contests took place recently in Italy. A weal thy Neapolitan, named Tosino, offered his name and fortune to the young wo man who could best please his palate .by her cooking of macaroni. As Te sino was good-looking and rich, and as there were many unmarried girls in Italy, there were over 150 entrants. Tesino tasted the dishes of macaroni that were presented to him, and then carefully looked over the contestants. He subsequently led one to the altar, and gave her a wedding present of £800. Miss Elizabeth Magic, a young Ame rican girl, started to raffle herself as a "slave for life' 'at so much a chance, the highest-priced chances being £8, in order to get money for voice cul ture. But before the contest was com pleted a suitable suitor presented h...

WHAT ARE THE "DEAD-HEADS?' [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

WHAT ARE THE "DEAD-HEADS?' To trace the origin of the novr fa miliar term "dead-heat" we must go t.o America, and some fifty years back. At that time the principal avenue of the city of Detroit, Michigan, had a toll-gate at its juncture with the ceme tery road. As the cemetery had been laid out long before the construction of the plank road, it was made one of the conditions of the road com pany's charter that funeral proces sions should be allowed to pass along there and hack again toll free. One day, Dr. Price, a well-known physi cian, when he Btopped to pay his toll observed to the gatekeeper, "Consider ing the benevolent nature of our pro fession, I think you ought to let us pass free of charge." "No, no, doc tor," returned the man, ?with a merry twinkle in his eye; "we could never afford that. You send far too many dead-heads through here as it is!" Although the joke was decidedly one against himself, no one relished it more than the doctor, who dirt not forget to relate it to ...

Through German Spectacles. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

I j Through German Spectacles. At a certain lecture the other day, the lecturer was speaking about the breadth and solidarity of the British Empire. He said that "the aun never Htit.H on the British domini ns." A German in the crowd n»ked: "Do you know why that is?" Lecturer: I suppose it is because the British dominions are spread over so many parts of the world that as the aun sets in one place it rises in another. German: No; it's because Provi dence couldn't trust an Englishman in the dark.

When you send an ordinary telegram in the country you have a good chance of it reach ing its destination before the per son it is Intended for hears what you want to tell him from the butcher's boy, who was told by Smith's maid whose cousin heard it from the milk man, whose son is the telegraph mes aenger.

Lismore Liberals. JOINT MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

tore Liberals. - -^ JOINT MEETING. ADDRESS BY MRS IIOrE. Between 20 and 30 members of the Lismore Liberal organisations-the Women's National League and the Peoples' Party-attended at the Mechanics' Hall on Wednesday after noon of last week, when an address was delivered by Mrs Hope, one of the organisers of the Women's National League. Mr W. G. Gibson, president of the People's Party, was in the chair. _ The speaker, in a chatty, conversa tional style, dealt with pretty well the whole of the political issues raised in the present campaign, besides giving plenty of advice on (he subject of effective organisation. There was, she said, great need of organisation, for they could not meet an organised force like the Labor party with guerilla war fare. Organisation spelt, discipline, to which she considered women more amenable than men. She had noticed, just before the last battle, that men got up and criticised all their generals. Could they wonder then that So and So went and voted on t...

Archeological Discovery. ANCIENT NATIVE IMPLEMENTS FOUND AT DERRINALLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Archeological Discovery. ANCIENT NATIVE IMPLEMENTS FOUND AT DERRINALLUM. A very interesting discovery of an old black follows'camp and well was made recently on Mr H. Alan Cnrric's Mt. Elephant Estate at Derrinallum. About three-quarters of a mile north of the homestead there is a break in the ridge that separates the watersheds of Lake Corangamite and the Emu river. In the depression thus formed there is a ! hillock, about 3ft high. th:it had often excited the curiosity of. the owner of the estate. Having occasion to supple i ment his homestead water supply, Mr C'urrie started excavating in the hollow to form a reservoir. Three feet below the hillock the workmen c;\me upon what appeared to be the apex of a stone pyramid, but which proved to be the : top of a native well. The walls of the I well were encased with stones about j '1ft, and the bottom of the well was 8ft deeper. Around the well was an ancient reed bed, and scattered through and below this peaty mass was a large number ...

LOCAL RAILWAY RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

I LOCAL RAILWAY RATES. The most important provision in the Railway Lands Acquisition Amending Bill, which is being introduced by the Minister of Railways in the Legislative Assembly, is the abolition of local rates. The bill will also provide that trusts, if they so desire, may determine that the "betterment" principle -setting ofr the increased value of land due to the construction of the line, against the price asked for-shall not apply, and, further, that the purchase ot the bal lasting land may be undertaken by the constructing authority, and not by the local trusts.

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Obituary. The oldest resident of the Lismorc district, in the person of Mrs Agnes Stewart, passed away at her residence on ; Tuesday afternoon. Mrs Stewart was born at Newtown Ards, County Down, 1*11 the North of Ireland, and landed in Victoria in 18G4. She lived in Geelong for a short time, and then came to Lis- 1 more, where she has resided for 50 years. Her marriage with the late Mr Charles Stewart, who died in 1891, was celebrated at the White Swan hotel. Until overtaken with the physical infir mities of increasing years, no one was more ready than she to help in cases of trouble and sickness, and her kindness and generosity will be long remembered by the older residents of the district. She leaves three sons and three daugh ters, all of whom are married, viz., Messrs James, Charles and William Stewart, and Mesdames M'Lennan, Trainer and Chamberlain. Death was caused by paralysis supervening on a severe cold. She had not long passed the allotted span of life, being aged 71 years...

Jubilee Celebrations. CONCLUDING SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Jubilee Celebrations. CONCLUDING SERVICE. The Jubilee services of the Presby-. terian Church at Lismore were con cluded on Sunday, when the Rev. E. A. Forbes conducted thanksgiving ser vices, There were good congregations, and Holy Communion was administered at both services. Rev. Forbes took as his text the llGth Psalm, 12 to 14 verses -" What shall I refider unto the Lord for all His benefits toward me ? I will take the cup of Salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord." After out lining the circumstances of the text, he said that their thanksgiving was parti cularly a thanksgiving for the gift of the Church arid their place in it. Few congregations had been blessed by more faithful ministers, and it was difficult to estimate how much they owed to the i past. They were what they were be- ; eause of it, and their inheritance had j come to them from men who had been inspired by the best traditions of the ; church. He firmly believed that the | church life here, transplanted from ...

Unprofitable Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Unprofitable Settlement. | THE Closer Settlement Board in the course of their itinerary reached Bacchus Marsh last week and took evidence from the settlers on the Staughton Vale Estate. Evidently none of the settlers there are on the high road to fortune. One said that none of the settlers were earn ing the ruling wage of 45/ a week, and another gave the net takings from his allotment at £30 a year. A pessimistic set tler, who jointly with his wife holds 335 acres, candidly de clared that closer settlement was a mistake, as it brought into farming persons who possessed neither brains nor capital. .Speaking at Casterton the same night the State Premier, Sir Alex. Peacock, said that, ".des pite drawbacks and difficulties in administration, the success of closer settlement had been en couraging and justified persever ance." Undoubtedly closer set tlement justifies perseverance it would be a poor outlook for the country if it didn't-but to make a thorough success of it, cheaper land wit...

A Union Demand. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

A Union Demand. | THE Harbor Trust has incurred | the enemity of unionism because its chairman (Mr Holden) de ' ciined to be interviewed by union officials who were not employees of the Trust. The Trust is a customer of the Government shipbuilding yards, and placed an order there for a certain ves sel. It was declared "black," and the men refused to make it --hence a strike. If Govern ment employees are to be al lowed to pick and choose among the State's customers there will be never-ending trouble, and so , far as ship-building, coal-mining and railway-carrying are con ! cerned, the State might just as ! well "shut up shop." One of | the blissful anticipations that the | advocates of State industries | used to indulge in was that | under Government strikes would be a thing of the past. Victoria had a big railway strike a fe\v years ago, the State coal mine is a perfect hot-bed of strikers, and now we have this dispute at the Government ship-building yards. Experience goes to show t...

Grandmotherly Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

Grandmotherly Legislation. THE Legislative Assembly, by a majority of one in a thin House, passed a clause in the new Motor Act prohibiting motor-cyclists from carrying passengers tandem-fashion on their rear-carriers. It may be unsafe-and perhaps improper for ladies to ride tandem on a fast-moving vehicle like a motor cycle ; but why should a male passenger, sitting astride, be prevented from using a motor bike in this fashion ? Except | for the risk of a burst tyre, the | danger is no greater than in solo | riding. Very few collisions are ! caused by motor-cyclists, for the I very good reason that they are | apt to come off second-best in a ! road accident. It seems to us | that we are getting far too much grandmotherly legislation novva j days.

Prepared To Hide His Light. The editor of a great magazine sent for a certain author who had sub mitted unsolicited manuscript.. "I am glad to make your acquaint ance, sir," said the editor, enthusias tically. "The story you sent in is perfectly splendid. But why use a nom de plume? Let us publish it over your name, and it will make you fatnqus." <T'in not after fame," .objected' the author. "It's money I want." "But you'll get just as much money in either case." "No, I won't. If I publish it over my own name, my wife will get the money." "It's no use talking," said Smithers,. dejectedly. "It's impossible to make a woman understand even the first principles of finance." "What's the matter now?" inquired his friend. "Matter!" said Smithers. "Why,, when I was away yesterday the baby7 swallowed a penny.

A LONG WALK. ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 July 1914

A LONG WALK. ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE. Garbed in the picturesque dress of his native country, Demetre Dann, a Roumanian, twenty-three years of age, is walking round, the world in order to win a bride. He is shortly due in Australia. Incidentally, he seeks to win a wager of £4000 by covering 6300 miles on foot within six years. He styles himself the "globe trotting Roumanian artist-dancer." He fought in the Balkan war, and is proud of the fact. After he has com pleted the arduous task which he has set himself he wishes to claim a bride among the hills of Roumania and settle down in London-with his wife and the £4000. His life at pre sent is not quite as pleasant aa his dreams of the future. Although he claims to be expert in the use of five languages, he is compelled to sell postcards as a means of livelihood. Often he is treated with scant cour tesy-a fact which may be due to his inability to speak English. He con fesses that he is homesick, but he means to "keep on keeping on," f...
