What it Costs to Shoot Big Game. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 30 May 1914
What it Costs to Shoot Big Game. New Zealand has its deer-shooting ; tbo Northern Territory offers something in the way of buffalo ; and I here are various kangaroo-hunting grounds in New South \Vnle9 ; but For the most part Australasia lias little to present in the nature of big-game shooting. Therefore, an article on tlie cost of making an excursion into the nearest big-game country—that is, Africa—and the method an 1 procedure on arriving there, will be of interest to those of our readers whose ambitions lie in that direction. Such an article appears in the .June issue of Life, just to hand, and it is also of interest to general readers, for it describes the picturesque aspects of the country, and the prospects that lie in it for the trader and the hunter. The author of the article—which is the first of three—is Mr. 0. 12. Areh.'.r Russell, n well-known Adeluido man who put in thre» strenuous and exciting years in mid-Africa.

Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 30 May 1914
Sporting Notes. After the recent correspondence over the handicapping of Illumination, his win at Bendigo in a strong field camo as a surprise to some people (says an exchange). For a horse which was an honest trior at such msetjnga as Dixie, Mortlako, &c., only to be well beaten in each instance, to go to Bendigo and scoop, makes iho trotters in this district an exceptionally good lot. After so many disappointments about here, there was not much money, from outside sources, at any rate, for Illumination, and he started at 8 to 1. After his defeat at Mortlako he was tipped by a fine judge of trotting as the Bendigo winner. Nuff sed ! The members of the Cobden Riflo Olnb are at present putting in their musketry courso. Up to the present five have qualified as marksmen. The local Gun Club will bo represented in the teams' match at Camperdown to-day.

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 30 May 1914
IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If you don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do its work efficiently. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at sis o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost sure to awake somewhere near it. By extending this system you can obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you wil...
