Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
Toot Your Own Horn, A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact! A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls ,bellow, and cows moo, and twatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and Squeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man}&lt; the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.
How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry, when a.,stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in. any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the IfcLOtS. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn your town and district.
GERMANS IN SYDNEY. TROUBLE AT BIG HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
GERMANS IN SYDNEY. TROUBLE AT BIG HOTEL. General upheaval marked the pro ceedings in a big Sydney hotel last week after the arrival 6f a number of German deportees from Rabaul, in German New Guinea. It will be re membered that a number of officials from that colony were ordered to be deported to Australia, but with no further restriction upon their move ments. Strangers in a strange land, they knew not where to lay their heads upon arrival in Sydney. Through the kindly offices of someone who had found them "not had chaps," quarters were found for them at this hostelry. When their presence be came known to Australian guests there was an all-round scatter and angry clients besieged the office, clamoring for "my bill, please, and you needn't keep a room for me next time I come to Sydney." Instead of making a "nice little punch" from a body of wayfarers anxious to find ac commodation at any price, the estab lishment found its regular business falling away from it in large chunks. Sympat...

LADIES' LETTER. From Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
LADIUS' jl.STTER. From Melbourne. A fashionable wedding which is list ed to take place next month will per force be robbed of much of its pros I pective glory by the war clouds hang ing o'er us. But the numerous friends of the happy pair cherish the hope or the affair being of the not too quiet order. Partly because people are feeling the need of a little brightness lighting the darkness, and also be cause a function of social importance will be good for trade. There is a matrimonial rumor go ing around which, if true, will cause the greatest sensation and astonish ment that has happened for a very long time. I almost dare not whisper it, it seems so surprising, yet in a way, when one considers all things, it is quite possible, you know. It is con nected with very well-known people on both sides, but I cannot tell you more just now, except that the man has been married before, is very wealthy, and is very well known; In fact, a notable personality. The girl is a beauty. The whisper ...
HOARDED TREASURE. THE VAST WAR CHESTS OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
HOARDED TREASURE. THE VAST WAR CHESTS OF EUROPE. European authorities figured that when the Balkan war began and there was dread among the common people of Europe than a general war might result, nearly £70,000,000 in gold was hoarded in three countries in sums ranging from a gold piece or two up to tens of thousands of pounds. Aus- | tria-Hungary was credited with hid ing away £30,000,000, Germany £13,000,000 and France .£26,000,000. This was money which had l;een traced into those countries just before the Balkan hostilities began and after war started. In addition to this vast [sum there was an unguessable • quan tity of gold already buried in the ground. Russia is believed to have tens of thousands of hoarders of money. It is utterly impossible to guess at the amount of gold which the people of Russia have put into the ground or into the cellars of their homes. The sign of wealth would mean the coming of the tax collector, and among the men who look poor are owners of countless ...
NARRACAN SHIRE COUNCIL ENGINEER'S REPORT. Mr. W. E. Thompson, shire engineer, reported as follows: [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1914
NARRACAN SHIRE COUNCIL ENGINEER'S REPORT. Mr. W. E. Thompson, shire en gineer, reported as follows:-^ Country Roads. Board.—I have the honour to report that steady and reasonable progress has been made by both the contractors carrying out the two contracts under the Country Roads Board, on Main Sale Road, through this municipality. In reference to the metal contract between Yarragon and Trafalgar, I would like to point out that the continued dry weather is making it difficult to incorporate the binding material successfully with the metal, as no amount of rolling will effect this without sufficient moisture. On this account, I would advise the 1 council to purchase a water cart, which could also be used in the town ship to lay duBt; the extra cost of watering this contract would be agreed to by the Country Roads Board. -Re ceived. The plans and specifications have been approved of by the Board for that section of Main Sale Road be tween Trafalgar and Moe, but I have refrained from c...

OUR LAND OF PLENTY. MORE THAN WE CAN EAT. Victoria's imports and exports last month were about lialf their usual dimensions, and the prospect is "that they will be still less this month, li the German fleet got loose we shall probably have to do without all goods from Europe for a stretch, and what then? We have more meat, fruit, vegetables and wheat than we can eat, and more leather than would boot and fully clothe the whole popu lation. In short, we should all be able to gorge ourselves to repletion on the natural products of this bounti ful land, the drought notwithstanding. Only we should have no newspapers, no whisky, and no money. Thousands of us would be out of work, and could only go about striving to eat down the superfluity of meat and grain until we became suffocated by the accumu lations , of wool from the sheep. The butter and cheese we should have to consume would be appalling to the strongest stomach, and our eyes bulg ing with repletion, we should. simply gaze in stu...
