Sir,—Ab a special meeting of the Narracan Shire Council is to be held on Monday next, I would commend to their notice for consideration a a circular received frooi the Gover nor of the Commonwealth Bank, wherein an offer was made to lend money to the counsil it' they require any financial assistance. I would suggest that inquires be made re the terms of the Bank, aud if any saving can be made that the whole of the liabilities of the council ba submitted to the Governor for his consideration, Further, I might suggest that a con ference of the whole of Gippsland shires be convened through our council, and if the whole of the shires be induced to come in line with the proposal, no doubt most satisfactory terms could be obtained through the foregoing institution. Let it be remembered that we are all shareholders in the Common wealth Bank, therefore in loyality to the Bank it behoves us to support it. I may mention t...
Men and Lads for Farm Work [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Men and Lads for Farm Work The steamer " Themistocles " which is expected to arrive in Mel bourne about the beginning of Oc tober, is bringing to Victoria a party of seventy men and one hundred and seventy lads, whom it is desirous to place in country districts as soon as possible after their arrival. . The Immigration Bureau, 555 Flinders Street, Melbojrne, is desir ous of receiving information from any farmer or other country employ er who' may be in need of labor. Owing to the dry conditions which are being experienced in the North ern parts'of the state, it is recognis ed that the demand for farm labor is, under present circumstances, not nearly so great as would be the case under ordinary circumstances, but it is hoped that all employers who may have any vacancies, or who may have opportunities of placing men in any way, will loosn no time in sending in the necessary advice.

The Yarragon Club opened its sea son with a very successful shoot on the 16fch, and although the weather was perfect there was a naBty incom ing 'wind which made shooting some what difficult. Clay bird shooting was introduced for the first time, Messrs Dalgety & Co. putting in three traps for the UBe of the club. This branch of the sport is almost sure to take on here.

Everyone appeared to be imbued with social and patriotic feelings,—in fact, BOme of the Councillors were "bubbling over" with vocal proclivifcieB, as every toast submitted was received with musical honors. The Shire Engineer Mr Thompson, in responding to the toast of the Army, traced the achieve ments of the Britishers for past centuries, and seemed disappointed at not being chosen to accompany the Australiaus to the front. Mr G. Bucldeton—in supporting the toast;' claimed that tbis part of the Empire Had won the admiration of the wide would for what we had accomplished in our Defence system in such a brief period.

PREPARATION OF TALLOW FOR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
! PREPARATION OF TALLOW FOR , MARKET. Cleanliness should be the predom inating feature in preparing tallow for market. This is essential, in the first place, to secure a good color, and the fat should not be allowed to go rancid. The tallow should be stirred in the casks as it is poured in, as this will ensure a thorough mixing of the oils and solids. Generally speaking, it is customary to boil the fat for about six hours, and care has to be taken to avoid streaks of dust or dregs. The casks must be weighed before filling and the weight marked on the head. Then, after filling it is necessary to mark the gross weight of cask and tallow, and also the brand 1 and number. It is always advisable I to use sound casks, either new or good secondhand, and to see that all the hoops are tightly driven, also that nails are driven through the hoops. The custom of selling tallow by auction may not be well known. Samples are drawn in the selling brokers stores, and those of each lot placed on a sm...
Why He Hated War. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Why He Hated War. '"War," cried the old gentleman in the -Pugs bury Arms smoking room, "is a curse and a disgrace.. ; War," he continued, thumping the table with his list, "'is an abomina tion and a blot on civilisation! The very name of war," he shouted, sweeping two glasses and a pint pot off the board in his excitement—"the vcrv name of war is enough to make a decent, respectable man go and 'ang hisself out of pure disgust!" | / Having thus delivered himself, he rose and left the room, his fine old , face showing signs of strong emo tion. "Gentleman seems to feel rather deeply 011 the subject," said a com mercial traveller, who had been listening to his' remarks. "He do," assented one of the natives. "Has he lost some near relative through the war?" inquired the. commercial. "He 'ave," replied the other, oracu larly. "Who was it?" asked the querist. "'Is wife's first husband!" was the reply.'
REARING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
REARING CALVES. A noted Jersey breeder and impor ter, in giving his opinion on the rear ing of calves, says that the calf that is fed lots of whole milk and rich grains, while it looks good and is mak ing the growth so much desired by the progressive owner, will invariably lay on excessive flesh, develop a thick neck, heavy dewlap, coarse bones, and a heavy hide. On the other hand, the scrawny calf, with a pot-belly, while it does not show up well in the show ing, is the one that gets admiration when it comes into milk. It has been his observation that calves that suffer from scours arc in variably the ones that give a good ac count of themselves when matiiie.l, for the simple reason that in trying to check the bowel trouble he feeds b-t a light grain ration, and the milk en does not contain much butter-fac. Most dairymen work for thrift and growth, but where is the experienced dairyman who has not observed that the suffering, pot-bellied, skim-milk fed calf often turns out. to be a...
Why He Played It. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Why He Played It. _ Some years ago the Oldham Am.-i- > teurs were producing one of Han- i del's oratorios, under the personal J tuition and conductorship of the lace . Charles Halle. Among the orchestra was the famous and gigantic bassoon player, George Seel, of Ashton under-Lyne. At the final rehearsal Halle went to George and, indicat- I ing several 'bars for the' bassoon, told him not to play them on the nigiit of the performance. George was in wardly boiling with indignation, but said nothing. On the night of the performance George played the banned music. When the affair was over Halle went up to Seel in a great rage, and, pointing to the notes, said:— "I told you to leave that out, didn't I?" "Aye, you did,"^said George, "but Handel towd me to put it in, and he were a better judge than you I"
Evened Up. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Evened Up. "Before I agree to undertake your defence," said the eminent criminal lawyer who had 'been called in, "you will have to be perfectly frank with me and tell me the whole truth. Did you embezzle the twenty thousand pounds you are accused of having taken?" "Yes, sir," replied the accused man. "I'll not attempt to conceal the fact from you. I stole every penny of it." "How much of it have you still?" "It's all gone but about a couple of guineas." "Young 'man," said the eminent lawyer, buttoning his coat about him and putting on his gloves, "you d better plead guilty and. throw your self on the mercy of the Court." "I'll do it if you say so, sir. What arc you going to charge me for the advice?" "Two guineas." It takes a good deal of grief to kill a woman after she has got a dia mond necklace.
Heroic But Effectual. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 25 September 1914
Heroic But Effectual. "Doctor," said the young m in about town, "I want you to tell me \vhat to do to cut;e myself of smok ing. I've ^worn off a dozen times, but it does 110 good. I'm a nervous wreck." "Why do you come to me for aii vice, young chap? The only way t > stop smoking is to give it up, aiui you can't do that. You lack the will power." "Think so?" "I know it. I'll bet you live pounds on it—and leave it to you." "It's a "bet, doc. Good morning.'' "Good morning." Several months later:— "Doc. I've come to break it to you, I gently that you don't know it all. 1 have cured myself of the habit of smoking." "Sure of that?" "Absolutely. I haven't smoked a cigar, pipe, or . cigarette in three months. I've lost all desire for the weed." "That's good!" "Yes; and you owe me just five pounds. Remember our Iittie wager?" "I do. You win. But my bill is live guineas. You owe me live -shil lings, young chap. . . . Thanks. Good morning." "I presume, you carry a memento of some sort in t...
