Berry's Creek. A concert was held here on Friday evening. Cr. J. St.Ellen occupied the chair. The Chairman, in his opening remarks, said the concert was being held for the purpose of defraying the cost of a piano for the school. The residents have been anxious for some time to obtain a piano for the use of the school and social gatherings. The School Committee and the Building Committee combined on the matter and the result was the purchase of a very handsome instrument, which was being u.sed for the first time for the concert that evening. The school com roitte wished to thank the building committee through the agency for Mr Francome for allowing a considerable amount of the rent to go towards the piano and also Mr Couper for hisenergy in working up the concert.

Christmas Day. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 24 December 1914

Christmas Day. By Athmos. Before another issue of this journal - -the festival of Christmas day of 1914 •will have passed away. The mind can not dwell on the reason of this great -festival without being carried back through the long centuries to the stable "in Bethlehem where the Child was born —the God-man—who came to redeem the world. In our churches this sub ject is amply treated from its. religious standpoint. Of course, this is the higher and the grander reason why we •celebrate the 25th December, but to many this grander view is lost in the -contemplation of utilizing it as a time to •cease from the hurry and bust'e of -everyday endeavours to gain a place in the vvorld. It is, indeed, a time that appeals to all. The little child looks forward to it as a time of presents, and ■the enjoyment of sweets, whilst those who have older grown, are, as the day ^approar lies, making provision for hav ■ins a light royal time with the fishing rod or s"n, or both combined. To those who have...

The Gippslander. THURSDAY, DEC. 24. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 24 December 1914

Sbe (SippslanDer.1 THURSDAY, DEC. 24. Chicistmastidb, our chief Christian festival, has again come round and the season i's fraught with the spirit of the heavenly host which sang "Peace on earth, goodwill to men," on the advent of the Saviour of the world. It was a festival during many centuries before the birth of Christ in celebration of the winter solstice. But the early church invested the festival with a Christian significance. The actual date of Christ's birth is unknown, and the fact remains that there was no celebration of the birthday of Christ during his lifetime, for the early Christians looked upon the commemoration of birthdays as heath enish. The first known celebration was in A.D. 140. From the Druids came the use of Mistletoe at Christmas, and kissing under it is a relic of Scandina vian mythology—indeed many customs which obtain in England at this season originated from contact with that hardy northern people. But these all pertain to indoor observances, while, the...

WHAT POULTRY RAISERS SHOULD AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

WHAT POULTRY RAISERS SHOULD AVOID. By H. V. Hawkins, in "Victorian • Poultry Journal." Low-lying ground—it is difficult to drain. Secondhand material—risk of di sease. Fixing perches too high. Buying mixed lots of fowls — they may be past the laying stage. Leaving eggs in the nest—gather twice daily. Keeping cockerels with laying pul lets—infertile eggs keep better. Kitchen scraps from hospitals. Late hatching—means lack of sta mina. Too much grain—causes liver di sease. . . _ Giving water to birds suffering from diarrhoea—skim milk is better. Overcrowding the pens. Feeding grain to sick fowls. Setting hens with cut wings—eggs get chilled. The leggy sitter (such as the Langshan) too clumsy, and often breaks eggs. The hen covered with vermin chicks will also have them. Using a broody hen twice in suc cession—her temperature is too low. Breeding from deformed stock like begets like. . Breeding from birds after suffering from roup. Dirty water in the pens. Feeding tainted meat — affect...

The Careful Housewife. "Do you notice anything different about the milk this morning, dear?" asked a young wife. "Why, yes, now you mention it!" replied her lord and master. "It's more—more—that is, it "tastes " "Quite so!" she cried, with a tri umphant ring in her voice. "Our last milk was so thin that five days ago I tried a new milkman. He had such splendid milk, George, that I took in a supply for a whole fortnight! I've been wondering every morning when you'd notice it!" Mrs. Danks: The doctor said that I must take plenty of exercise. He ad vised me to do a lot of walking. Mr. Danks: Sensible advice! I hope you will follow it. Mrs. Danks: Yes. But I need a new walking-dress! Quickness in repartee has been credited to Paderewski. A gentleman once introduced the pianist to the champion polo-player of England, and added:— "You are both leaders of your separ ate professions, though they are, of course, very different." "Not so very different," quickly re sponded the great pianist. ...

TOBACCO A DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

TOBACCO A DRUG. An interesting case of splitting hairs has arisen in Ireland in the ad ministration of the National Insur ance Act as to whether tobacco is a drug, a necessity, or a luxury, all three views being taken by different authorities. It appears that the su perintending medical officer of the Dublin district recommended that a consumptive patient coming under the provisions of the Act be given tobac co for smoking to comfort him in his last days, offering to pay for the weed himself, but the Insurance Com mittee decided that the tobacco was necessary to the patient's treatment and sent in the bill to the Insurance Commissioners. Two weeks later the local authorities received a lengthy communication demanding an explan ation of their action in charging the Government with a shilling's worth of tobacco. Their reply was that to bacco was recognised as a drug in the British Codex under the title Ni cotiana Tabacum, and that it had been prescribed by a registered prac titioner. ...

KILLING HERSELF FOR LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915

KILLING HERSELF FOR LOVE. "If you do not marry me, I shall kill myself." In play and story these melodramatic words are often met with, and sometimes may be spoken in real life, but never, probably, in such deadly earnest as they are now and again in the Melanesian Islands, where it is the custom among some of the natives for the women to propose marriage. If the man refuses, the wo man must kill herself. Captain Sinker, R.N.R., who is back in England after spending some years among .'the Melanesian Islanders, says that the custom often leads to tragedy, although in one case which came under his notice there wa's a happy, if somewhat irregular, ending. It appears that a young native who had been converted to Christianity visited an island where the women al ways propose marriage, and a girl fell in love with him and proposed. But as he was already engaged he had to refuse. The girl quietly re signed herself to death, which 60 dis tressed the young Christian native that he consulted ...
