CARAPOOEE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 6 May 1914
CARAPOOEE WEST. (From our own Uorreapondent,) "'Tlo a poor hearb that never re. joiooe "is an old saying, and I guess it would be hard to find a farmer whose was not rjoioiung at the recent splendid and opportune rainfall. Although not so optimistic as the Melbourne press writer, who, after the rain, said a "bountiful harvest is now assured," we really can say the prospects are now very promising, and much brighter than th,,y were a fortnight ago. It is not Liberals and Laborites, or Fisher's fishing alter the spoils of oflice that now engrosses the farmer's attention. his thoughts and energies are centred on getting the aeed into the soil as exptdiblouely as possible. Oultivation was proceeding slowly b fore the rain, but now the work is humming along vigorously, the ground being in excel. lent working conditioi, and not requir. ing such laborious preparation for the reception of the seed, Most farmers like to sow early if possible, An old Scotch pioneer who farmed hero at one time...

TWO WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
TWO WOMEN. From Mrs, M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria, " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and lwhich nearly prostrated rie. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades, The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain, .1 suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many rei. medies without avail.

CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
CLEVER BUSINESS MEN. The ability to seize an opportunity is at valuable, nay indispensable, busi ness as-et as the following incidents go a long way to prove. An aeronaut and his son met with an accident near Rouen some years ago; through the car of their 'balloon having broken away, father and son were thrown downwards, but the son had been caught when falling in a hook which pierced his coat. He was carried this way for some miles, ultimately coming to the ground in safety. His coat was pur chased by the makers and hung in their. show windows,,with a full de scription of how it saved the wear. er's life, And as a fitting reward for their enterprise their sales actually doubled, A Welsh miller lost a sovereign in a bin of flour, and after spending many unavailing hours in search of it told a friend of his misfortune, "Perhaps it will turn up in one of the sacks," suggested the friend, whereupon the miller was seized with a brilliant Idea. He advertised in the local papers, offering...
