LISMORE v. DERRINALLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 July 1914
LISMORE v. DERRINALLUM. The Lismore boys journeyed to Der rinallum by train on Saturday to play the local boys football. There were only a few spectators to watch the play. The Derrinallum captain was L; Wilson, while M. Taylor was the Lis more skipper. Derrinallum won the toss and decided to kick with the wind. The play was' very even, but was slightly in Lismore's favor, and at the finish the scores were level~4 goals 4 bhds each. G. Fraser kicked a lovely goal for Lismore, while Taylor, Mur doch and Gazzard were also prominent for that side. For Derrinallum the best players were Wilson, Watts and Brad shaw.
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 July 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. ' "A Bloke" has this to say.-"A low brute of a working man," as E. de Vere Smythe would say, had a bit of lvfck the other day. He was tolling and moiling at excavation work, when he came on a handy little pile of 18 sovereigns planted by someone in the days that never come back. "Some 'as luck and some 'asn't." For in stance, a Wooloongabba (Brisbane) carpenter was demolishing an old wooden house in that suburb, when he came upon a find of 27 spade guineas, probably planted there when Moreton Bay was a convict settle ment. Ae spade guineas go, they are Worth more than the ordinary twenty one shillings, and the lucky finder got a bit over when he realised on them. Then the "low brute" took a ticket in Tatt.'s, and, his luck still holding, won a £6000 Tatt.'s prize. Then the "low brute" launched out on hla own . in railway construction work. His luck held good, and he made his pile. He Is no longer "a low brute." He h»s emigrated from the land that made him and r...

HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for making excuses. "f'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands in the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest eyed specimen applied for the job of well-digging about ten rods of ground, I was taken by his appearance, and told him to come in the morning. " 'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' I said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And whilst I was standing by he car ried out my instructions admirably. "I left him at it quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for about six inches deep in the middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. "When I returned he was'past the spot, but there was no sign of the clinkers lying about. " 'Lend me your spade a minute,' I said, and straightway unearthed th...
POSTPONED WEDDING. AGED BRIDEGROOM'S FEAR OF 82 REJECTED WOMEN SUITORS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
POSTPONED WEDDING. AGED BRIDEGROOM'S FEAR OF 82 REJECTED WOMEN SUITOR8. Hundreds of people visited the vil lage of Tausley in Derbyshire recent ly, in the hope of seeing the wedding of Mr. Aaron Rodgers, the octogenarr ian, whose search for a wife brought him letters from widows in all parts of the country. The parish church was crowded long before the supposed time of the cere mony, but the visitors were disap pointed by an announcement that the marriage had been postponed. Asked the reason, Mr. Rodgers said that 82 ladies who had proposed to him were in the village, and he could not allow his bride-Mrs. Wray, of Mile End road, London-to run the danger of going among them. Nevertheless, he said, the ceremony would take place next day. Mrs. Wray evaded the visitors, but Mr. Rodgers sat in front of his little shop, and did a roaring trade in cigarettes, ginger beer, and oranges. Inside the shop a gramophone was grinding out "The Wedding Glide." Sometimes Mr. Rodgers sang the praises ...
THEN SHE JUMPED AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
THEN SHE JUMPED AGAIN. A sad tale comes from a rural dis trict in the South of England. A man called at the cottage of an old woman, explaining that he was sent by the landlord to find out whether any of the cottages on the property were in need of repairs, and promising that any required should be put in hand at once. The old dame, having long ceased to expect anything from the landlord's conscience, welcomed this angel visitor in, and showed him with alacrity what was wrong with the oven, and why the back door wouldn't shut properly, and that the window frames were quite rotten and drop ping to bits. These complaints the inspector not ed down carefully in his book. Then he inquired whether the floors were quite safe. This was a point which had not occurred to the old body, so the inspector civilly requested her to go upstairs and jump as hard as she could on the floor while he remained below to test its stability. When she jumped till she was quite out of breath without receiving ...
AGRICULTURE. HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
AGRICULTURE. HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. From time immemorial (the editor o£ the Twentieth Century Farmer writes) it has been almost the univer sal custom to spread manure over the surface of the soil, and then plough it under. Generation after generation of farmers have followed the custom without seriously thinking ?whether this method was the best method to be employed. Humans are controlled more or less by custom and habit, which they accept and adopt unthinkingly, on the assumption that whatever is, Is right, and that what always has been done is support ed by some good reason, and there fore should be continued to be done. Study of Natural Conditions Necessary. Every farmer should know for him delf precisely why he does what he does. In this matter of manure, if the farmer regularly year after year ploughs manure under, he should not do so unthinkingly, but should know why he does it, arid then try ...
Tantalising Tommy. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
Tantalising Tommy. Father (to his son Tommy, aged ten, who for the last ton minutes has ?been tantalising him with, teasers from "Book of Fun, Mirth and Mys tery") : Look here, I've got one for you to answer. "S\Hiy is a gardener the most successful man in the world? / Tommy (laughing up his sleeve, "because he has seen the answer in "Book of Mirth, Fun and Mystery"): Why, because no man has more fousl ness on earth and he always tries to choose grounds for what ho does. He commands his thyme, and Is master of the mint. He raises his celery (salary) every year, and it Is a bad year indeed that does not bring him in a plum! He meets with more houghs than the sovereign, and lias more laurels than any general can win." At this point Tommy's father -waa beginning to feel tired, and he re marked: "Quite true; here'e sixpence. For goodness sake give me a rest and go to the pictures!"
Newspaper Law. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
«. ^ If subscribers order discon tinuance of their papers the pub lisher may continue to send them until all arrears are paid. If subscribers refuse or neg lect to take papers from the office to which they are directed they will be held responsible un til they have settled their ac counts. If subscribers move to another place without informing publish ers and papers are sent to their former directions, the subscri bers are held responsible. . The courts have decided that "refusing to take a paper from any post office, or removing, or leaving them uncalled for" is prima facie evidence of inten tional fraud. If persons pay in advance for a newspaper or quarterly adver tisement, they are bound to give notice to the publisher at. the end of that time if they do not wish to continue it, otherwise the pub lisher is authorished to send it on, and the subscriber is respon sible until an express notice and payment of arrears are sent to the publisher.

Up-to-date Romance. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
Up-to-date Romance. It was a secluded corner, hemmed in with palms and fairy-lights, calm, cool and restful. In the distance could be heard the strains of a band, playing a slow rapturous waltz. The very air breathed with romance. "Do you realise what it would mean if I were to give you such a beauti ful ring?" he asked her softly. She thought she did; but instead of saying ao-for she wished to hear him say those blessed words himself-she cooed a gentle "What? What would it mean?" "It would mean," he said, as he rose to his feet, "that I should have to live on sixpenny lunches and wear old clothes for a year." A young constable joined the police force in Scotland, and in the course of duty found it essential to arrest a very old offender. Arrived at the police-station he ushered him into the cells with the comment, "Mind the step." "Gae awa'," said the prisoner, with contempt. "I kent the step afore ye was born."
Make Your District Known [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
Make Your District Known ? Concerning some parts of the district news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault; we have no miracu-' lous power of knowing what is happen ing at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the. matter in hand and cause the silence' to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district, will you try on these lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township and neighboux* hood, such as weddings, deaths, acci^. dents, concerts, matters touching dis trict industries, etc. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Dont bother about grammar or spell ing ; it's the editor's work to look after those trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write only on one side of the paper. Write your name and address on some corner-not for publication, but to prove good faith. Give information; but let criticism alone.
No Fighting on Hia Field. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
No Fighting on Hia Field. It was a sleepy little village, with but one claim to fame. It had been the scene of a great battle centuries ago, and every now and then stran gers would come to gaze on the field of war, and dig furtively for relics which the canny natives had careful ly buried in readiness for them. As one old gentleman approached the village, he saw a lad Bitting on a stile. "My lad," he asked politely, "is thla the field upon which the great battle was fought?" "No, sir," replied the lad; "that be at the top of the hill." "Dear, dear!" replied the old gen tleman, playfully. "That hill must be quite a mile away. Why ever didn't they fight it in this field?" The lad looked at him dully as he shook his head. "Dunno, sir," he said slowly, " 'less it be as this yer field belongs to Far mer Giles, 'oo never will lend his field for anything, not even for the village sports!"

THE AILING HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
THE AILING HABIT. If you are not well, don't talk about it. To do so only exaggerates your consciousness of a physical discom fort; also it casts a shadow of gloom cvGi' other peoplo. They grow heBi tant about asking you how you feel, it giveB them cold chills to be contin ually told that you arc "not very well" or "not so well," or "about the Btime." Probably you've said these things so often that you say thein now as a matter of course. It seems incred ible to you by now that you should feel really well, because you've been unconsciously making a habit to be ailing. Do you know that a good deal of this is imagination? If you braced up and told people cheorily that you felt tip top, nine chances In ten that you would feel tip-top pretty soon. You'd forget the ailing habit. And, alter all, what great difference does it make to any but your neareBt and dearest if you don't feel well? Supposo you are even hampered by downright physical ills? Your work must be done just tho same. It ca...

THE RAILWAY SLEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 5 August 1914
THE RAILWAY SLEEPER. The extraordinary peregrinations of an extraordinary sleepy man are re lated by the 'Petit Journal.' He Uvea at Corbeil, about twenty miles from Paris, and visits PariB several times a week. He took the train back from Paris, fell asleep, and only awoke on being shaken toy the guard at Montereau (about seventy miles from Paris). Still dazed with sleep, he got into the wrong train-a non-stop express for Paris-promptly settled down to slum ber again, and only awoke when he reached Paris. He was just in time to catch the last train back to Cor beil. He fell asleep again, and the train reached Corbeil and was shunt ed to a siding for the night. Still the man slept on. At 5.25 the following morning the train started for Paris with the sleeper still plunged in sleep. He would have slumbered on until he got back to Paris had he not been recognised by a friend at an interme diate station and pulled out on the platform. Once more he got in a train for Corbeil, and this t...
