THE FEDERAL FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

THE FEDERAL FIGHT. " A CLEAR fire, a cleau hearth, and the rigor of the game." "This,"says Charles Lamb in his famous essay, "i~as the celebrated wish of old Sarah Battle who, next to her de votions, loved a good game at whist." In the same spirit, Mr Cook, speaking in the House of Representatives, said: " While this fight is going on I don't want a tittle of advantage to lmy side. I want a straight, esquare, stand-up light. Any step that will help to that end 1 shall be only too de lighted to take." The words used by the Prime Minister aptly ex press the feooling of every hounest citizen, be he Ltberal or Laboriteo. It is a pity, therefore, that some members of the Opposition saw fit to say very wild, very sweeping, things, about an alleged conspiracy to disfranchise the nomadic worker. The assertions as to the doiugs of Liberal organisors un named weore almost, though not quite, as startling as the absence of definite facts to support thoem; and in this instance to state the of fe...

Where She Beat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

Where She Beat Them. The superintendent of a charitable institution for the aged poor in a certain district says that there is no topic more pleasing to some poor old women than the discussion of their "'better days," when they were the fortunate possessors of "everything heart could wish for," as they are apt to express it. One old lady in the institution is never tired of describing the finery she had when she was a bride: an other boasted of having once owned a "eold-band chiny tea-set" and six solid silver teaspoons; while a third dwelt at length on the elegance of a flowered silk gown and satin parasol with fringe fifteen inches long. One poor old lady stood this sort of talk as long as she could. Then she calmly interrupted with "W'ell. I never had no chiny tea things, nor no silk gowns, nor em broidered petticoats, not openwork stockings, nor gold ear-rings, nor no thin' of that sort; but I have had four husbands, an' I'd like to know whether any of you can beat that."

COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. "An Experienced Horseman" in the 'Kentucky Lire Stock Record," re minds those who have the handling of horses of the cruelty of which they may be carelessly guilty: "Let anyone who has the care of a horse these cold, frosty- mornings, -ieliberately grasp in his hand a piece of iron; indeed, let him touch it to the zip of his tongue, and then let him thrust the bit into the mouth of the horse if he has the heart to do it. The horse is an animal of nervous organ isation. His mouth is formed of deli cate glands and tissues. The temper ature of the blood is the same as in the human being, and, as in man, the mouth is the warmest part of the body. Imagine, we repeat, the irri tation that would be to the human, and, if not the same degree, still the suffering to the animal is very great. And it is not a momentary pain. Food is caten with difficulty, and the irri tation repeated day oy day, causes loss of appetite and strength. Many a horse has become worthless f...

LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. "Carry your own lifeboat" is the motto of an Italian inventor, MIr. G. Piperno, who has what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a -an's suit-case, measuring 24in. by 16in. by Sin., and weighing 201b. Wi?e- d-isas ter is imminent, the passenger b:nogs the suit-case on deck, breaks the seal, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a small boat. If it is necessary to abanlon the ship the passenger steps into his pri rate boat, closes the outer c.ver, and launches his craft by hurling hlimself overboard. Then, accordlng to Mr. Piperno, the apparatus rights itself in the water, the top cover i's thrown open, and the occupant flindls hlm:nself sitting in an absolutely unsinkable ship. . . .

IRRIGATION AT GOWANGARDIE. AT MR T GIBBS' PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

IRRIGATION AT GOWAN. GAIDIE. AT MR T GIBBS' PROPERTY., On the property of MIr T Gibbh, of Gowangardie South, is a gully running between two hills, wh:ch is the escapo valve of a considerableamount of storm-water in the wintor time. Some years back the possibility of conserving the water for irrigation purposes, by erecting a wall from one rise to the other, presented itself to~ I Mr Gibbs. Some months back he started to carry out his project, and has now almost completed the retain'ng wall. The work was of an extensive nature, as the wall measures about six chains across, 12 feet in height, with a basement of 50 feeoot. About 41000 yards of earth were excavated and used in the con struction of the bank, and on MIr Gibbs' estimate, approximately, 6,000,000 gallons of water will be imprisoned when the dam qis full, and will cover about five acres of land. Below the dam Mr Gibbs has 25 acres of irrigable land, end the amount of water conserved will be ample for irrigating this area, 12...

LET THE SUNSHINE IN! [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914

LET THE SUNSHINE IN! It pays to wear a smiling face And laugh our troubles down, For all our little trials wait -Our laughter or our frown. Beneath the magic of a smile Our doubts will fade away, As melts the frost in early spring Beneath the sunny ray. It pays to make a worthy cause, --- By helping it, our own; To give the current of our lives A true and noble tone. Ii pays to comfort heavy hearts Oppressed with dull despair, And leave in sorrow-darkened lives A gleam of brightness there. It pays to give a helping hand To eager, earnest youtih, To note, with all their waywarduess, Their courage and their truth: To strive with sympathy and love Their confidence to win. It pays to open wide the heart And let the sunshine in.

The friends suggestion came by re turn. "Put a tax on umbrellas," he wrote, "and make the bishops order the prayer for rain to be read in all the churches."

IN THE GOULBURN VALLEY. Mr Elwood Moad (chairman of the Water Supp'y Commission) said yes. terday that there was at present a keen demand for lucerne growing land in the Goulburn Valley areas, OQe land owner who had privately subdivided his land into farms of ten acres each had sold a number of subdivisions, several of the purchasers bring arrivals from New Sooth Wales. This year's area under lucerne would far exceed that of last year, and nest year's figures would be still higher, Two factors operated in bringing about the increased attention given to lucerne growing. The first was the dry season, and the second was the satisfactory profits made from the fattening of lambs on the lucerne areas. During the past three weeks 22 blocks of land were taken up. t l? the nteo ntion of the commission to shortly gazette about 4000 acres of the Stanhope Estate as available for sottlemont.
