DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 11 November 1911

"Duty is far morn Ihn» Tiovc. It | Is tho upholding law through which thc weakest become strong, without which all strength is unstablo as water. No character, however har- moniously framed and gloriously gift- ed, can be complete without this abiding principle; it ls the cement which binds the whole moral edifice ' together, without which all power, | ¡goodness, truth, happiness, love it- self, can have no permanence; but all the fabric of existence crumbles away from under us, and leaves ns at last sitting In the midst of ruin astonished at our own desolation."

A TEMPERANCE Meeting:. On Sunday evening. Rev W. H Taylor conducted a special temper ? anc . service at the Methodist Church There was a good attendance, and the interest shown was very mar- ked. Suitable hymns were selec'ed. The address was based on Proverbs xxii. 3I. and was a stirring appeal tn the hearers to avoid strone drink.

AGRICULTURE. ON FARMING AND ITS ADVANTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 11 November 1911

AGRICULTURE. ON FARMING AND ITS ADVANTAGES. "Mallee Farmer," writing in the ?'Australian Farm and Home" journal, says: There seems to be an idea taking deep root in the minds of many Aus- tralian people (and country born and bred at that) that town ways, town mnnners, town occupations and avocations-in fact, town everything -are more admirable and more ''gen- teel" than country ways and doings. On why this is so one may specu- late until his (or her) hair is gray without coming to a satisfactory conclusion. Enough to say that the craze for getting away from the safe, the guarded, the comparatively pure surroundings of farm life is be- coming stronger andmore compelling , every day. This condition of affairs is most deplorable, for tho country the farm-needs its young men and ks young women quite as much as the city needs them. The Poor Man's Paradise. Tho opportunities for acquiring a fair amount of wealth and an honor- able position among one's fellow men aro as good in the country...
