ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. FOOTBALL TRIBUNAL. To the Editor of the Gippsland Standard [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 3 June 1914
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. FOOTBALL TRIBUNAL. To the Editor of the Gippsland Standard SIR,-—Mr. D. P. Fahey's letter is some what like his first, in that he has studious ly avoided sticking to the main issue and answering my criticism of tlio action of the Association in the matter of the ap pointment of an Independent Tribunal or Committee, He has in both letters chiefly indulged himself in abusive criticism of "Sport," whom it does not affect in the least, as mysole motive in these letters is to encourage a system that will tend to improve the game of football in this dis trict, and is so urgently needed (and I may say never more so than now), whether its opponents think so or no. There is not any question of the Association apologis ing for anything they choose to do ; it is whether the Association cannot accept the opinion or suggestion? of others than delegates for the improvement of the game and its management. We cannot all have the privilege of being delegates, so the least we...

Port Albert Baths. CONFERENCE WITH COUNCILLORS (FROM OUIt OWN COIlItF.SrONDRXT). Crs. Cliristensen and Barlow waited on the members of the Progress Asso ciation oil Saturday afternoon, to dis cuss the bathing house question. Thev were willing, on behalf of the council, to buy the ground for .£lr>, and for the Association to tind ways and means to erect thtf baths, estimated by the shire engineer at ubout £80.

At a meeting held later in the even ing it was decided tiiat Messrs (J. It. Smith and II. Avery wait on the coun cil.

The Standard. PUBLISHED BI-WEEKLY. Beneath the rule ot men entirely ju6t the pen is nrightior than the sword. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 1914. To day a poll will be taken at the shire Iin.ll to decide whether the pro posed gravitation scheme shall be gone on with. Opinions differ, but it seems likely that the majority of votes will be cast ill favor of the scheme. AVc are assured by the commissioners and by Mr Champion that the rate at the outset will not exceed 2s, with a cer tainty of a reduction within a year or two. If to-day's poll is adverse the Trust may decide to exp.md several hundred pounds on the present water service, which may mean an extra rate of a few pence. Expensive as the pro posed scheme will be, efficiency is as sured for all time. The movement to establish a C.itlio lic college in connection with the Uni yersity of Melbourne was enthusias tically supported by a largo meeting of interested persons held on Monday evening in St. Patrick's Cathedral.

How Strange. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
How Strange. The other day a youth, who is rath er too fond of practical Joking, sud denly accosted a prefect stranger In the street, saying: "Kxcuse me, sir, but did you drop a sovereign? and he held out the coin mentioned between his thumb and finger. The man whom he addressed look ed at the coin, put on an expression of surprise, and made a hurried search of his pockets. "Why. so 1 did." he answered, "and 1 hadn't missed it. Thank you." and ho held out his hand. Instead of handing the coin to tho man, however, the joker drew out « noto book, and said: "I thought so." He then took the name and address oi the loser, dropped the coin into hi? own pocket and turned away. "Oh, I didn't find one," said the youth; "but it struck me that In a large city like this there must be .1 great deal of money lost, and upon inquiry I And you are the twenty first man who has lost a sovereign this'morning."
Well Qualified. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
Well Qualified. Tho la^e Lord Young, at a civic gathering, asked who the gentleman with such a very red nose might be. "Oh! that's the new water engin eer," was the answer. "A most judicious nppoiutmeut," remarked Lord Young. "1 should say that's the man who could be trusted with any amount of water!" *i«ive. mo your beliefs; I have doubts enough of my own," said Goethe. Most people are in mucK. tho same case where moroseness asd gloom are concerned; they hav»» tjuUe enough of their own without belns asked to help bear yours or mine. ft isn't tvhat he knows, but what he thinks he knows, that a man brags about; great talk generally means little knowledge. Try to make yourself a well-loved and popular member of the home circle, and the chances are that you will be popular with other people, too. When we give way to our tempers, our rotations inurft sometimes wish, as Mrs. 1'oyser did, that we could be "hatched over again and hatched dif ferent." The very best thins worth living for is...
THE TOLL OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
THE TOLL OF THE SEA. In spite of better construction, more accurate charts, and the improvement of lighthouse service, the sea con tinue's to take an enormous annual toll in property and lives of those who traverse its surface. The marinp disasters of 1913 amounted in money value to £7,000,000 in British-insured ships and cargoes that were totaily lost. The above figures do" not in clude damagtes to ships and cargoes that were totally lost. The above figures do not include damages to ships and cargoes that were not total losses; for these, the damages annuls to over £6,000,000.
The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
The Bull Didn't Know. A story is ;old of a great English persr.r.age who thought everybody knew or ought to know him. One day lie was walking through a field wheu a bull addressed him in an undertone, and made for him with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. He was a .Minister, a man of dignity and of political pQwer. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for ofllce, and he got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull contem plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an Infur iated animal like that*roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the farmer^ "Right? Do you know who 1 am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "l am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" said the farmer.
MOMENTS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
MOMENTS OF INTEREST. .Most dogs get their full growth iu one year. Sheep pastured on hillsides are near-sighted 1n oue eye. The tongue of a wild animal is its doctor. Tho owl can see farther at night than any other bird or animal. It sometimes takes a year for the bite of a rat to heal up. The turtle lives to be at least fifty years old. Sunflower seeds will attract rats where toasted cheese will fail. In getting Us food at night a rab bi; Home/urns irjvels ten miles. A bull in n ram' will hncome quiet .\t jou'ids of a fiddle.

A CURIOUS GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
A CURIOUS GRAVE. In the old churchyard on the Mar ienstrasse, which leads into the raar ket-plnce of Hanover, there is a some what remarkable grave, which affords a striking commentary on the van ity of human intentions. The grave contains all that is left of a woman who was laid to rest more than 130 years ago, and the monument with which it Is surmount ed is of a very solid nature. The tra dition runs that the dead woman was a beauty in her day, and thai, fearing that by some chance her grave might .be opened, and the ravages of mortal ity exposed to view, she took every precaution to preserve the seal of the grave unbroken. The inscription on the front of the pedestal runs as follows: — "Henriette Juliane Caroline von Ruling (nee Willich). Born at Nim burg the 19th of January, 175G, died at Hanover the 15th of April, 1782. She gave three sons to Heaven, and having lived on earth as she now llveB Above, was permitted to hasten to her Eternal Home." In the rearward face of the ston...

REASSURANCE. "Before you ask," she calmly spoke— "Dear, listen to this word; You're not the first man I have loved. Nor second—nay, nor third." "Am I the fourth or fifth," he asked In scorn; "or were there more?" She murmured, "Don't be vexed, sweetheart, "For, as I said before, "This love is not my first—but. hark!" He fcli. her gentle touch— "I promise it will be my last; "Now—can you say as much?" "You are my darling girl," be cried. And bowed his manly head Upon her hand—"My love — ray bride!"

UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. To place an umbrella in a rack at a club or a friend's house is a sign that It is about to change owners. To see two walking under one um brella, the drippings falling on the r.n'p shoulder, is a good sign of an engagement, while if the female shoul der catches the drippings we may safely conclude they are married. An umbrella held in the manner of a golf-club in a main thoroughfare at 1 a.m. Is a sign that the glass has riBen, but a storm Is brewing. An umbrella in "uncle's" window in dicates that someone has had a "rainy" day.
