THE OLD RAIL FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

THE OLD RAIL FENCE. It fitted well each rural scene and lent it half its charm, The old rail fence, the ragged fence, that stalked across the farm It took its zigzag course along-ranon without an end, There cross-vines found a place to cling, the birds knew it as friend; The. lizards stretched themselves along its old gray rails to sun, And there the quail piped up his call when each long day was done. This mossy-bearded pioneer has almost passed away, Where'er we go we seldom see the oil rail fence to-day. It played its part and played it well another has its place, The new wire fence that stretches on in slenderness and grace, But we who loved it still shall miss Its rugged, quiet charm, The old rail fence, the ragged fence. that stalked across tihe farm.

PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

PROCRASTINATION. You aro merely storing sorrow the future, sage say, if you pt o till to-morrow things which shlould be don to-day. When there is a job unpleasnt that it's up to me to do, I attack it in the present, give a whoop and past it through; then my mind is free trod troubles, and .1 sit before tihe fire pop ping corn or blowing btIbbles, or a whsangig at my lyre. If I said: "'There is no hurry-that old job ws do next week," there would be a con. stant worry making my old brain-pan creak, For a man knows no enjor. moet resting at the close of day. if he knows that some employmennt is nr. looted in that way. There is noth'P more consoling at the setting of tie sun, when the evening bells are toll ing, than the sense of duty done. And that solace comethl never to the ran of backbone weak who postpones all sane endeavor till the middle of next week. Let us then he up and doing, with a heart for any fate, as the poet said, when shooing agents front Iris garden gate. Let us shake...

THE CHINESE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

THE CHINESE HOME. In "Meni and Manners of Modern China," Mr J. Macgowan gives some very interesting pictures of Chinese life drawn from personal experience. Of the Chinese home he writes: The Chinese conception of a home varies eery considerably from ours. They do not seem to tako into account that shere are certain elements essentialto :ho making up of what we consider to b a happy home. For example, Imongst the Five Eternal Virtues en umerated by Mencius, unfortunately, leaeuliness Is not one. If it had been, it might have changed the whole cha racter of the nation. At present lust and dirt and disorder are the sormal conditions of life of nearly every Chinese. You step into any some of the -middle and lower classes, and you got a shock. Comfort seems :o have been the last thing aimed at in the building of it. Things are ;rimy and unwashed, and are tossed sbout without any regard to the gen sral effect they might possibly have in making the house look pleasant. SITTING AT EASE. Th...

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY When I come to think It over I can recall a good many things that happen to a boy to wound his pride and to re mind him that no matter how manly he may feel is but a small boy after all, and must be treated as such. One of the earliest humiliations to which he is subjected is not being allowed to fish with a teal hook. Sometimes a bent 'pin is substituted, the head of which is constantly slipping through the knot and losing itself in the water; or, if the real hook is used, father first carefully files off the barb to pre vent the possibility of its getting into the boy's hand or leg and requiring it to be cut out. Now nobody ever saw a boy catch a fish with a bent pin or a barbless hook, and when a boy is seen fishing with either it is a sure sign that he is regarded as still being in the infant class. Another notice to a small boy that he is, only a small boy is making him ride a horse with a grain bag for a saddle, this precaution being taken to prevent...

GAMES AND THE BORED. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

GAMES AND THE BORED. I hare never been bored but by games and people who talk about them. Games are the refuge..of the people who are bored with life, those who can think of nothing to think of. For my own part, I have never been bored with life so much that I really wanted to play a gariie. It was always under a mute protest and a surface cou-tesy. Clarenzo Rook in the "Daily Chron Miss Skeen: "Where did you gradu ate from, Mr. Gill?" Mr. G.: "From the School of Pharmacy." Miss Skeen (with surprise): "Is it possible? What a strange choice for a young man brought up in town! But if I re member rightlq, your grandfather was a farmer, too.

HYPNOTIC CATS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

HYPNOTIC CATS. Treading on a cobra sitting up ready to strike, a resident in India, whose ex per'nces are related in the "Field," wondered why the deadly fangs were delayed. Looking round, he noticed his cat crouching and gazing at the reptile steadily with mesmeric effect, for the snake seemed unable to move, and while in this condition he killed it. Another time, when sleeping in an open cot in the verandah, he woke to find on one side of the bed a huge cobra with head erect ready to strike, on the other the glistening green eyes of his eat. The -snake remained quite still, so he ran into the. room to -fetch a gun, and, coming back, poked the reptile's head with the barrels; but it did not take the slightest notice, and seemed like a stuffed and lifeless crea ture. .I e then placed his hand in front of the cat's eyes by' way of experiment, when immediately the spell was remov ed, the cobra raised itself, hissed, and assumed an offensive attitude. He then took his hand away and the...

HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING Many valuable animals are spoiled by improper or harsh treatment. A man who is incapable of understanding the disposition of the horse is certainly in capable of training him; for the horse is endowed by the Creator with rare intelligence. Therefore, in hie tender ago, he should have good care and proper training by being used with kindness and good judgment; at the same time, he must be given to under stand that although frightened or ex cited, he is to obey. The horse being more nearly human than any other. animal, you can get along much better if you hold a con sultation with him to a certain degree. For instance, if you were going to ask a favor of a crank, would you go to him and say, "I need help and you have got to help me or 1 shall force you to do it?" Would the man do it or not? Yet -nat is the way the so oalled horse-breaker does. In my ex perience of training colts and older hor ses, two-thirds of those I have handled have been called vicious b...

Terribly Tempted. A SERIAL STORY BY ANNABEL GRAY. Once more this hapless girl wrestled with he- fate. Woundcd, despairing, shie yet pleaded for the remission ol liher sentence. For the last time in all her brief, ruined life, Lenore implored his pity. "I love you, Leonard I'" she .ild in hoarse and pteous tones, '-in a way you cannot understand. Kill lme, before you send me out of your life for ever. T'ake the knife and send it home to my heart. Never to see you-hows can I bear is Life, what is it but a spanu a tale half told, a dream at the best: What are worltly glories, even lame, compared to love? Sorrow and sick ness may overtake you, and in sorrow has faithfulness no part? Are sweet S memnories of devotion and self-denial worth nothing on a siok-bed Olh! Leonard, life is solemn, for we must all die, andl it Is then truth and loyalty are priceless. Is there nothing sacred in this illimitable devotion, that sees you-only you-in every form and viaion, inspires my thoughts, and fe...

AN OBSCURE MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

AN OBSCURE MILLIONAIRE. The English public knows much less about its wealthy man than the Ameri can publio does about its millionaires. Some time ago a Mr. Birch Crisp ar ranged the £6,000.000 loan for China, and the London Press had to hunt up some facts about this unknown finan cier. Now there is the case of Mr. Mallaby-Deeley, who by purchasing a large portion of the Duke of Bedford's London property for three millions brought off the largest private land deal in the history of London. In Am erica Mr. Mallaby-Deeley would have been brought prominently before the publio's notice before he. bought the Bedford property, for he had been con cerned in such trifling deals as the purchase of the Piccadilly Hotel for £500,000, and another London property for £400,000. But in spite of the magnitude of the dealings he has car ried tlhrouglh, Mr. Mallaby-Deeley is not a prominent or even a well-known fig ure in business circles, and he is said to be one of the hardest men in London to find....

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

NOTES. (BY MloITOR.) "It was more than a defeat, it was a rout," thus tersely and con cisely did one of Set mour's fore most supporters express himself after last Saturday's match. Yet allowing the criticism to be some what drastic, there is no doubt that the form of the team bitterly disap pointed both players and support wr;, who are still wonderipg how such a debacle came about. Never perhaps, in the football history of this town, had a Seymour team taken the field under such splendid auspices. The captain and vice-cap tain were men of sound experience and matured judgment; the team comprised champions of all sorts, Files and conditions, men who had played football in places as far re mote as Koondrook and Williams town, and it was fully expected that our opponents would return to their native heath in ut'er despair at ecer rivalling the splendid organisa tion of our team. The captaiti ad iressing the pla) ers just before the start, impressed upon his team the iecessity of.co-ope...

Seymour Water Trust. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

Seymour Water Trust. The usual monthly meeting of the above Trust was held on Mon day, when there. were present Coms. Strangman (chairman) Te han, Ramsay, Ward, Chittick. The secretary reported that the Trawcol reservoir is only 5 feet 3 Inches from the overflow, and a large quantity of water was going to waste caused by closing down the outlet valve. At the present rate of intake the reservoir will be overflowing in about four weeks time. He recommended that the Trust purchase the large shed at Trawool granite quarries if same could he got for 120. The shaft at service tank has been sunk to a depth of 16 feet, and, there is no sign of leakage from tank In south-west corner. The report was received, and it was decided to purchase the shed at Trawool as recommended by the secretary. THE PUMtPING SCHEMB. - Com.

The Trawool Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

The Trawool Bridge. For some time past suggestions have been made at the council meetings that the Seymour Water Trust should make a donation of something like £200, its share of the cost of repairing the bridge. Nothing definite, however, was done until last Monday, when Cr M'Cormack, to use a figurative ex pression, took the "bull by the horns" and moved that the Water Trust be asked to contribute £200. towards the debt ifcurred-in repair ing Trawool bridge. Cr M'Cor mack established a prima facia case, and clearly showed that it was only right and reasonable that the trust should bear its share of the cost of repairs to the structure. Putting the bridge in repair had cost the council some hundreds of pounds more than was anticipated, and the bridge was of greater service to Seymour than to any other part of the riding. In addition to this, the Trust had had the free use of the .bridge for the carrying of its pipes over the river for 20 years for nothing. To give them this bridge ...

TIT-BITS FROM BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

TIT-BITS FROM BOOKS. "Every man who is a genius knows it. But some know it who are not geniuses." "It is easy to hat a man for his faults than to love him for his virtues. But it is easier to hate him for his virtues and love him for his faults." "The spice of love is tlhe.gentle row ! It is only the bread-pudding woman, flavorlcss and unappetising, who says, Yes, dear,' to everything." "There are some questions that a wo man who considers her own happiness will leave unasked,, however great her curiosity." "Have you ever noticed that the thinsgs you aremost severe on at one period of your existence you come to do at anotiher? It's fatal to say you won't do anything; if it's only that you will never msarry a man witlh a beard, or a squint, you're bound even tually to do it. While if you sit in righteous judgment' on the man who spenlds Ihis substauce on tihe Turf, or the woman who runs away with her neigh bour's husband, you'll do both as sure as you're a living soul."-"'Nevertlte l...

GOOD FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914

GOOD FORM. Young people frequently become most embarrassed when they suddenly realise that on the street, in a public conveyance, at the theatre, the restaur ant or church, they have done some trifling thing to snake themselves con spicuous. Here are a few simple rules which the uninitiated will do well to mesorise: When a young man meets one or more girls on the street car by accident he does not offer to pay their fare. That is his privilege only when he is their escort for the trip. - Girls in business are often joined at lunch by young men employed in the same offices. Under these circumstsn ces there need he no embarrassment over the check. Tihe girl pays her own bill precisely as if the man had not appeared on the scene. When escorting a girl to the thea tre, church or restaurant the man must first ascertain whether there is an usher or head waiter at the door. If there is, hlie permits the girl to enter first, holding the door open for her. The usher or waiter lends the way d...

"THE WORLD AROUND." So great has become the demand for -electric washing machines that one manufacturer is producing them in 36 styes and sizes. The Pruss:an State railways are using 200 storage battery cars at less cost than steam looomotives or gasoline-elec tric cars. A leather belt in an English factory has been running at a speed of 1800 feet a minute from nine to twelve hours a day for more than thirty-two years. Venetian coins of 1570 and 1577, bearing the names of one of the Doges, have been found in Mashoualand, in the intefior of South Africa. Lake Baikal, in Central Asia, and Lake Tanganyika, in Central Africa, furnish similar problems for scientists as both are fresh water, removed from oceanls, yet both contain deep sea fish.
