Football GOULBURN VALLEY LEAGUE. SHEPPARTON EASILY DEFEAT ROCHESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

Football OOULBURN VALLEY ' LEAGUE. SIIKPPARTON EASILY DEFEAT ROCIIESTE R. Last season the above clubs tied for the G V. premiership, that necessitated a deciding match at Kehuca, which Shepparton by a narrow margin won after a very very Hue game. Since that time both teams have been weakened by removals and injuries to prominent players, and in this respect Roches ter lias suffered to a greater extent perhaps than their formidable op ponents. Shepparton have lost M'Intyre (who has played many .fiue'games for that club'during a period extending over 15 years), Gelsler, Qoodlet and Florence, whilst last Wednesday's Rochester team as compared with the final match last season was undoubtedly weaker, the more notable absentees being Mills, Bennett and O'Neill (three'of perhaps the best in league games in their places.) But the absentees from the ranks of the premiers was not noticed so much as Rochester felt the loss of the three sterling players mentioned. This was because the Shepparto...

The Minister this moruing staled that he was making an effort to arrange for this matter. There were some slight difficulties which had not yet been overcome, but the Cabinet would consider the question to morrow. The Royal Commission on Closer Settlement has had a very arduous time in Gipp.-dand, and the Western District. Many of the settlements in the dry areas are in a deplorable condition, and the contrast between them and our Northern irrigation areas is very marked. I am glad to say the Com mission had agreed to visit the Goulburu Valley, commencing at Shepparton ou 16th June, provid their Western District tour is finished iti time. The mee'ing of ...

AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. Slie is a Kensington girl, and has recently married the dearest fellow in the world. She is fully aware of the latter fact; nor does she hesitate to mention it to her friends. Indeed, so recent is her marriage that some of her acquaintances have not yet had a chance to meet the most charming, of his sex. Brief as the time has been, however, it has yet been long enough for her to discover that her husband is absent minded. The other day she was expecting a girl friend to lunch with her and make the acquaintance of this para gon. The guest, however, failed to make her appearance, though a care ful search of the husband's pockets ! failed to reveal the note of invitation. It was a rainy day, and late in the afternoon the now-despaired-of guest made tier appearance, wet and dishev elled. "What on earth is the matter?" cried the bride. "You poor thing, you are dripping wet, and you have miss ed meeting Fred?" "I'm awfully _ sorry," replied the guest, "but I've had't...

The hours when a man communes with his own soul are sacred, and none may .spy upon them. j Hugh could have told no man— perchance he would not have dared to tell his own dear wife, how he spent the night of the vigil, or what mes sage the darkness had for him. At daybreak he walked in St. James Park—the fuller hours of the morn ing found him pacing the Strand" with the will of one who could have burst open the great doors through which she must pass. She would be brought up at ten o'clock, he said, she who was the heaven of his hope. He won dered that those who passed him by did not cry out upon him for very spite of his happiness. There were few in Court, for this swift surrender on St. Denys' part had not been made public, and none but. the lawyers knew much about it. Geraldine arrived at a quarter to ten with Desdy, who had, in imagina tion, driven the great car all the way from Datton to "Lally's House."

LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? Should old love-letters be kept? Most people would say if asked the question, "If. you're unmarried, keep them; if you're married, destroy them most decid dly." In other and plainer "words, if you are unmarried, you can do as you like. If you are married, you can't— if you want peace. A love-letter is sure to be read" sooner or later, however carefully you may hide it; however emphatically you may deny its existence. This is^= one reason why married people should nut keep old love-letters—they are sure to he found. The next is obvi ous. A woman can't forgive a rival, and a man <wi"l not. * It is unreasonable really, but there it is, and you have to accept things as they are in this life. It is unreas onable of the man, because if he comes to think about it, a vanquish ed host adds glory to himself, but he is still afraid the other man will cut him out. IvTot being sentimental himself, he.: can't believe she kept the old lov...
