ANNUAL HORSE PARADE [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
ANNUAL HORSE PARADE The annual horse Parade, conduct" ed under the auspices of the TrafaK gar Agricultural and Horticultural Society, was held in Trafalgar on Friday last. Owing to a variety of reasons, the Society felt inclined to abandon the parade this year, many members having the impression that public in terest could not be sufficiently aroua- i ed to make it a success. It was also regarded that the number of entries would bo relatively smaller than pre ceding years. Taking every factor into consider ation, the Sooiety must be credited with scoring another big success, the result exceeding in every respect the moat optimistic opinions of (hose who pinned their faith upon the iaaae. The attendance, if anything, eclip aed that of laat year, and noted horse breeders were present from all parts of Qippaland and the State. The keeneat interest waa manifested in the work of the judges, /nd without exception, their work was well done and met with the approval of the keenest critics. ...

What She Expected. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
What She Exoected. "Look at her," said the ironmonger, indicating a departing customer. "She sent her wringer here to be repaired. I promised it her for this week, pro vided that I could get a certain new part in time from the makers. I couldn't get it Now she wants me to pay a charwoman who came unneces sarily—half-a-crown and ' twopence tram fare. Then shq wants me to pay the laundry bill for the clothes." The ironmonger paused to breathe heavily. "But that's not all. Her husband dines out on wash-days, and as he dined out on wash-day which wasn't a wash-day—you understand?—she says I' ought to pay for his dinner. No, she doesn't ask anything else. And . they call 'er the weaker sex."

As Translated. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
As Translated. At a large warehouse there is em ployed a hoy who attends to a lift in the daytime and studies literature at night. A few days ago he "was given his wages with a small fine deducted for some breach of the regulations. Quite indignant, he went to the mana ger, and began:— "Sir, if you should ever find it with in the scope of your jurisdiction to_ levy assessment on my wages for some trivial act alleged to have been committed by myself, I would suggest that you refrain from exercising that prerogative. The failure to do so would force me to tender my resigna tion." The manager, tottering, reached for his chair, but managed to ask what •was meant. He received the answer in less flowery language:— "In other words, if you - fine me again I'm going to chuck it."
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. No moment in a woman's life is quite so difficult as that in whieli she meets her son's future wife for the first time. Perhaps the moment is al mo-t as difficult for the fiancee, but she possesses the glorious self-confi dence of youth, and cannot quite grasp the view-point of the woman who knows that the marriage of her son means her loss, but his gain. A moth er rarely loses the love and friendship of a daughter who marries, but when a son weds she instinctively commits one or two possible grave errors—she iritates her daughter-in-law by medd ling in the affairs of tlie new little home, or, in her anxiety not to seem interfering, she stands aloof and ap pears indifferent. The force of convention makes it particularly difficult for a woman to play successfully .-her role of mother; in-law. Tradition says that all moth ers-in-law are disagreeable, officious creatures. And even if Daisy is pre pared to be charming, to her husband's mother, there ...
AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. • A 'recent number of the "LincolniCol lege Magazine"' contains some excel lent hints on ploughing, given in the course of a lecture by Mr. W. Street, the farm overseer. More depends upon the quality of the ploughing than most farmers are aware of, for, as a rule, they think that good after-cultivation will cover up the defects of bad ploughing. But it is well known that uneven plough-! ing shows up clearly in the succeed ing crops, for there is a marked dif-: r'erence in the crop obtained off half a paddock ploughed at 6%in. compared with that ofi the other half ploughed 1 at 4%in. I Straight ploughing is far better than crooked, for in taking a bend the, 1 plough is pulled away from its work ] and cannot pack the furrows as it should, the horses pulling one way, I and the plough tending to go the other. This leaves a badly-packed furrow bot 'tom, which no amount of cultivation can properly remedy. It is therefore j important that pl...
A Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
A Warning. The dean of a certain cathedral was one day walking through the pre cincts when he came upon a laborer at work on a small plastering job. The man looked up at him, and went on with" his work without touching his cap. • This lack of due respect nettled the dean,, who purposely passed the place again shortly afterwards. Again the man failed to salute, and the dean said, reprovingly: "My man, do you know-who I am? J am the dean of this cathedral." The laborer glanced from the short tempered cleric to the lofty building, and replied: "Darned good job, too—mind you don't lose it."
Her Only Request. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
Her Only Request. lne lady was complaining to the !' milkman of . the attentuated nature of the lactic fluid with which he was in the habit of supplying her. ' "Well, mum," explained the milk man, "the cows, you see, don't get enough grass feed this time of the year. Why, them cow's are just as sorry about it as I am. I' often see 'em crying'—regular cryin', mum— because they feel as how their milk don't do 'em credit,'mum. Would you believe it, mum?" "Believe it! Oh, yes. Unfortunate ly there is too much material evidence to want to dispute it," responded the customer; "but I wish, in future, you'd see the poor intelligent creatures don't drop their tears into our can."

ATHLETIC SPORTS IN RELATION TO HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
ATHLETIC SPORTS IN RELATION TO HEALTH. "it is strange that the problems of athletics rarely receive the attention ol. those who are most concerned with health, the supposed purpose of bodily exercise. The management of athletics is rarely found in the hands j£ a physician, by whose scientilic guidance the various sports would be .reed from the dangers attending some of the present athletic practices. Athletics have for the most part to lay become the province of the peo ple at large. It is the trainer rather *han the physician, the hero-worship per rather than the hygienist, who di rects and inspires physical exercises .vhich ought to be undertaken primar ily in the interests of a sound body and a sound mind. Games have de veloped into contests In which victory s sought at any human price. The "manager" is the foremost adviser, -and the physician is called on as a last resource to mend the damage that may have been done in an ill advised struggle for athletic suprem acy- Until there...
A REPORTER SURPRISED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 11 September 1914
A REPORTER SURPRISED. An amusing Incident is described by a "Cape Argus" reporter. While he was taking a walk on the mountain slopes recently he was surprised to see four uniformed policemen and a detective in plain clothes making their way up the mountain. He cau tiously followed them to a deserted farmstead in the vicinity of a tin mine on Devil's Peak. They then surrounded the building, made a con certed dash, and entered it through the doors and windowB. The pressman rushed up, and through the window saw a struggle between the police and four Malays. On the floor lay the unconscious form of a white girl, attended by an old colored woman. The Malays were secured, and from a conversation which ensued, it appeared that the girl had been the victim of a dastard ly plot and forced into a marriage with one of the Malays. The pressman, believing he was on the track of a sensational scoop, burst in on the scene, and was told in strong language to "get out of the way." Then for the first...

- ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. A visit which an Aberdeen business gentleman named Mr. A. M. Suther land paid to Rome about a year ago lias had a somewhat unexpected but pleasing sequel. While travelling in the vicinity of the Italian capital, Mr.' Sutherland was accosted by a man be longing to the hawking fraternity and induced to buy as a memento of his visit a statuette, to all appearances made of bronze. The figure was that of a Roman soldier, and the price paid for it was thirteen lires, equivalent to 10/10 in' English money. Shortly afterwards Mr. Sutherland was travelling between Florence and Venice, and at a wayside junction a travelling bag, which formed part of his luggage, was missing. The bag contained the statuette, and its Iobs was reported to Cook's Tourist Agency. M ntlis passed, however, and Mr. Sutherland heard nothing of his missing bag, but recently the bag was recovered and forwarded to'the owner. The statuette was found in tact, and, although not attaching much value to...
