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

HIS ORDEAL. Judkins paced the floor. His brow was swrinkled and pale. There was an anxious look in his eyes Evidently there was something. cn Judkins's mind. Presently lie spoke. "Yes, it must be done! It is a dreadful alternative, but I can see no other course to pursue." Ever and anon he rolled his eyes ap ward, and raised his clenched hands to wards the oeiling in an attitude of su preme and utter despair. The struggle was a long and bitter one. Bravely lie strove for the mastery over the black demons of despondency that surrounded him; but in vain were his efforts. Inch by inch, foot by foot, they pressed upon him, and, in spite of pluck and will-power, his hitherto indomit able spirit was slowly but surely crowd ed to the wall, and finally forced to surrender. "Yes," lie repeated, deepairingly, "it must be done l There is no other way l" And then, grabbing his lisat, hlie rush ed frantioally from.the room.

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

A STORY AT BEDTIME. "Please tell us a story," children so often request, and it is often hard to think of one on demand But a little practise makes it easy, and a happy set of children are soon absorbed in a simpleo narration of events and give an attention that is flattering. For little children regular storics with a plot are Inot necessary; a simple story fui of details will fill their minds with a series of piotures. It.mlnay be only a story of a little girl going on an errand for her mother, but give her a name and say she had on a nice, clean, blue dress. Then in his walk she can see a number of pleasant things and per lisps meet another little girl; thus you can go on telling of things as they come into tihe mind or are suggested by the children themselves The scenes and incidents should be such as they are familiar with and can understand. Some simple, unexciting stories are a good preparation for bedtime.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

-OTES. (BY MONITOR.) SFrom Koondrook whither I have fled to avoid the wrath of the enraged footballers." Nothing I can assure you, my dear "Has Beens," gives me greater pleasure than replying to your caustic criticism. - (I think "caustic'.' is the word you use). Your quotation from the divine bard is, I am sorry to say, incorrect. I am not an ex-school mas. tar, but as memory serves me it runs thus : "'Tis better to have never play ed than to have played too long." On glancing over your effusion I notice that it is divided into ten paragraphs. Can it he that ten "has beens'' have rushed in and contributed a paragraph apiece? No wonder it is flat, unprofitable and dull, seeing that it has ten reputed fathers. Well can I imagine the meet 101 of the tel tO, concoct thi bomb that was to end "Monitor's" existence. It is evident it must have seen the light of day in a pub, and seeing the hotel they habitually frequent is too public for such a dark undertaking, what is more natural that t...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914

TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. Dear Sir,-As an ardent supporter of football in this town, I feel that it is my duty to enter into this controversy that is being waged between "Monitor" and "Has Been." While fully admit ting the truth and fairness of "Moni tor's criticism, there is no doubt that he has in places beenwrather rough on the local players, and such treatment tends rather to discourage than to spur on" to greater effort. Perhaps following on such a defeat it would have been better to have kept discreetly silent about the matter, and trust to the team to find their natural level. It is a pity, however, that "Has Been," before rushing atilt of such a formidable op ponent did not reflect whether he was wise and justified in so doing. "Moni tor's" statements, although perhaps unpleasantly expressed, are, in the main, correct, while those of "Has Been," I am sorry to say, woefully in accurate. Without reflection, and even without thought " Has Been" has made a number of wild and...

It wtould seen that the schenmo to cournet ulip the metropolitan house wit've with the pre Ricers in the coun try by means at a "produce by post" systeit is, after all, likely to materiai ise. It did not meet with the whole hearted support of the postal officials. and it was regardcd even more coldly in the llailway Department. Even the heads of the latter gave it the frigid countenance. But they seem to have come round. The system is to come into operation on 1st July. The articles it is proposed to carry under it include fruit, vegetables, flow ers, Australian cider, broad, pastry, honey, butter, eggs, cream'; cheese, hat, bacon, meat, rabbits and hares, poultry, fish, game, butchers' small goods.
