WAKOOL SHIRE COUNCIL, ------ - ENGINEER'S REPORT. At the. monthly meeting of the Wa kool shire council the engineer (Mr. J. Vaughan) reported as follows: ,Moolpa ferry.-Before Reid left an inspection was made on the 4th June. The river was low, and the punt was floating. Tomlin took charge upon the 8th. He informed me the punt was sunk (a rise had taken place in the river since the 4th). I saw Reid., and he stated that the punt was floating when Tomlin took it over. On the 23rd I made an inspection. The punt was under water. I instructed Tomlin to have it removed and drawn up on the bank out of the water. On the 2nd instant I saw the punt partially drawn OUt, ana on wie ULu L saw . pu1uAU right, out of water. I made an inspec tion, and found the end that had been strained before was very.much strained, and some of the planks had parted. It appears as if the timbers on the floor of the punt as far as I could see had weakened and broke. It would require a fair sum to repair it, and wh...

PARENTS WHO KEEP YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
PARENTS WHO KEEP YOUNG. Parents sometimes have one idea which they found good in their youth, and despite passing years and changes in manners and circumstances they will try to enforce their views always upon their children, even when these are grown up. .Nothing keeps pan ents so young as keeping pace with the new thoughts and ideas that come with every new generation, and they will increase their children's love and respect by allowing them to hold opin ions worth considering.
A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
A PERFECT WOMAN. What .She Should Measure. If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out results. First as to height; tastes differ, but the MIedicean Venus is 5ft. 5in. in height; and this is held by many sculptors and artists to .be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. 5in. 1381b, is the proper weight, and if she is well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a seventh. and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of her head. The knee should come exactly midway b1etween the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger s...
WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 23 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. SSECRET ENGAGEMENTS::::. It is ,eurlous wliat:a secretive: ten. dency some.girls exhibit in their love affairs. -It. seems that the? more deeply and iruly people care for each other, the less they desire to call the world to come and gaze upon..the spec tacle of their devotion. SBuit there is a very happy mediuinm indeed between that and carrying on a love affair in secret. Some girls- more especially very young girls have a romantic idea that it is de lihtful.to keep from those in atithor-, ity the knowledge that they have told someone ne has their love. But let the say here that parents ought at once to be informed of a pro posal of marriage, and their consent asked, or else no engagement can be entered upon. A man with any sense of honor will wish at once to go to those who have the authority, and ask for their con sent, in such a case. He never tries to hide the matter, even if it be for the greater enjoyment of secret understanding between him and the girl he hop...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M1. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. A Midnight Messenger, Everard Gilray struggled to be free. What did this outrage mean? Who was this ragged, seedy fellow; who had thus dared to attack him on his own doorstep on the stroke of twelve? And this was not some slum in the East End-it was the respectable, dull, decorous Harley-street. Gilray had slipped his Yale key in the front door, the polished mahogany portal stood open showing the luxury and-comfort and elegance of the hall in the dim, shaded electric light when this ragged nomad had emerged from the sha dows and gripped him by the shoul der. A beggar no doubt, some impudent fellow relying on the lateness of the hour and tlhe stillness of the street to enforce a dlemand for alms. Gilray turned fiercely upon him, his left shot out and the rutffian staggered under the force of the blow. The street outside was absolu...

A t presenf'"quiet weddings" are-the latest \thing and' bride :and bridegroom alike seem anxiozus to be -?narried tas ilqietly as possible. ~. One reason, why fussy weddings were -popular In England for- so many years is that in the good- old. .days there were so many irregular marria ges. Consequently bridal, couples married: regularly in a church liked to make the fact known,, and Iso made the ceremony as public :as possible. It was not only at Gretna Green that such - irregular -marriages took place. Hundreds, if not thousands, were cele brated in the Chapel of the Fleet prison,- and many in the taverns- in the neighborhood. The clergy were generally men -of bad character, ;4ho had been .sent to prison, and were ready to marry any two people at a moment's notice. Many grave abuses arose from this irregular method of performing, the marriage ceremony, and men in high positions gave false na...
