SMYTHESDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

8MYTHESDALE. Although not up to the standard of the two previous years, the attendance at the Smythesdale annual sports meeting on Boxing Day was very satisfactory, a total of £85 6s 9d being taken at the gates. The day was beautifully fine, and many family parties picnicked hap pily in the grateful shade. A large and energetic committee kept the ball rolling all day, aud the extensive programme was run through without a hitch. The fields in almost all the events were dis appointingly small, but competition, ex cept in the bicycle race, was very keen. Some excitement was caused during the preliminaries of the wood-chop by the discovery of a black snake. With 20 or SO men in hot pursuit the snake's career was very brief, and he finally succumbed under a veritable avalanche of timber. In the Sheffield, Maiden, and Publicans' Purse, F. E. Price, of Wendouree, was in fine form, winning the treble comfort-' , ably and giving the impression that a five yards' reduction of his handicap wou...

A BALKAN SCRIBE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

A BALKAN SCRIBE. It is interesting to know a little of the business carried on by Balkan scribes who affect tp know every thing, spiritual and material. These wise men also read and write letters for the illiterates of the various coun tries. "The Balkan Trail," by F. Moore, gives an amusing example. A veiled woman presents a letter. "From whom?" asks the sage of the cipher. "Our husband," the woman replies. "Most beloved of wives," the flat tering fellow begins to read. "I am well. I wish you well. The weather is well. The buffaloes are well." Here the wise man studies the doc ument closely and asks, "What is your husband's name?'' "Almoon, eff&ndi." "Ah, yes—Almoon." The woman pays the fees. A few weeks later the same woman appears again with another letter. "From whom is it?" again the question. "Our husband." "Most beloved wife," he starts in by way of variation, "the weather is well. I am well. I wish you well." "What did you say your husband's name was?" "Almoon." "Ah,...

WELSH WAR PROPHET. Strange Forecast Made Sixty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

WELSH WAR PROPHET. Strange Forecast Made Sixty Years Ago. A strange prophecy concerning this great war was made as long ago as 1856 by Rev. H. Rees, of Liverpool, Wales' greatest pulpit orator. In the spring of 1856 he was returning from London by train, accompanied by an other great Welsh preacher, the Rev. Owen Thomas, of Liverpool, who ' after his death in 1868 wrote Rees' j biography. ! A son had just been borii to Henry Rees' only daughter, who married J Mr. Richard Davies, afterwards M.P. : and Lord Lieutenant for Anglesey, and Rees remarked, almost as though thinking aloud, "If the little one is allowed to live as long as I have lived, he will see very strange things, and things, it is very probable, ter rible as well. I s'hudder to think of the things that must happen on earth. You may be sure that these godless old kingdoms of Europe will have to suffer, because of the oppressions that have been rife in them, and the innocent blood which they have shed; and I am not without...

PUBLISHED BV-ERY SATURDAY. Printed and published by Lionel Sparrow, sole Proprietor, at tlie office of the "Q-reaville Standard" newspaper, Clyde street, Linton, in the State of Victoria. Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, JAN. 8, 1916. The New Year has begun its course with no very bright outlook for humanity. The war Still rages, and the most optimistic discuss its prospects gravely. There is no lighthearted confidence now, but a grim determination to see the thing through. John Bull has rolled up his sleeves and set hi3 iron jaw, and every additional piece of German or Austrian " frightfulness "— such as the sinking of the Persia the other day—only makes him roll his sleeves a little higher and set that massive jowl a little harder. One London paper demands that no peace terms shall be entertained that do not provide for the hanging of the Kaiser and a select party of his myrmi dons for their crimes against humanity. The i...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Cr T. Kennedy, of Linton, had a se vere attack of illness at the beginning of the week, and as he is advanced in years, his condition was a cause of much anxi ety to his friends. He is still unhappily in a state of health far from satisfactory. At the council meeting on Thursday, when a request for a month's leave of absence was granted to the veteran coun cillor, Or Poynton said that in view of the great esteem in which Or Kennedy was held, and his long period of valuable service, he would suggest that a letter of sympathy be forwarded to their colleague. Other members also spoke in high terms of Cr Kennedy, and the suggestion was adopted. Mr R. E. Murdoch, dentist, will visit Linton on Monday, 17th inst., and Skipton n Tuesday, 18th inst., when he may be onsulted at the unual hours., Miss Magan, who has been in charge" of the Linton Post Office for the past 17 years, resigned some time back, and her I duties ended on the 31st December.

DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

DAIRY NOTES. It is not only important to keep the milking machine clean for sanitary reasons, but also to provide condi tions under which it will do its best work. If any of the parts are permit ted to fill up so that milk will not flow through them freely, the efficiency of the. machine is impaired, and may en tirely prevent its working. When a cow is about two and a half months from calving she will show a strong tendency to go dry. If advantage is taken of this period there will be little difficulty in drying the cow off, so she will have a rest from six to eight weeks. The disappointment after buying cows points to the advisability of rearing heifer calves, and bringing them into the herd at two and a-half to three years old. As a rule, >no cows that can be bought are so satis factory as those bred on the place, I and by rearing a sufficient number of calves, well bred for milk, the best can be retained, and unpromising heifers sold to the butcher. Sell the poor cows and buy ...

Commonwealth War Loan. USE YOUR MONEY TO HELP THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

Commonweaftfi War Loan. USE YOUR MONEY TO HELP THE COUNTRY. Everyone has the right to subscribe all the money he chooses to the new Commonwealth War Loan, but be it many hundreds or few, or even a modest £10, the Commonwealth Government, through the agency of the banks and post offices, is ready to receive the ap plication. It is not a favor that is being asked of the Australian community, but a privilege which is being offered—that is, a privilege of helping oar men with the munitions and equipment needed to save their lives, and the further privilege of helping to shorten the war. These are the reasons which will appeal to all who are imbued with the spirit of pat riotism more strongly than the pecuniary considerations of the high rate of interest and unquestionable security, but both the considerations of patriotism and the considerations of financial advantage and. security should urge: all Australians to. put into the new War Loan every penny they can spare; Every patriotic Aus...

NATURE AS A PAINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

NATURE AS A PAINTER. Investigations recently made have brought to light the fact that for all fruits and flowers only three color ing substances are furnished by Na ture. One of these is the familiar "chlorophyll," -which paints the beans and peas, the water-melon, and the leaves of the trees so vivid a green. Another is "xanthophyll," which ex hibits its intense yellow in the car rot, for example. 'The third is "ery throphyll," which shows its rich red in [the beet. The last two are only modified "chlorophyll" however. But it is marvellous to realise that all the varied h,ues of flowers and fruit are due to these three substances, mixed in different proportions. True lfberty is to have absolute pcwer over self.

WIDOWS OF THE WAR. A Word of Comfort by the Rev. F. B. Meyer. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

WIDOWS OF THE WAR. A Word of Comfort by the Rev. F. B. Meyer. The one whom you loved best and who loved you best has passed through the gate which opens into the Garden of Paradise. But he has not gone far in. He is waiting there for you. Dare to trust him with the Heavenly Father, who gave you to one another, and who Himself is Love. On this side the gate is plated with iron, but on the other side with gold. l<'or you the sunset; for him the dawn. But another day is hurrying on when you and he will stand to gether again, through the mercy of Christ. You must not think he has ceased to love you. Love can never die. "Now abideth faith, hope, love, these three, and the greatest of these is love." Have you not been at death-beds where the soul, about to go forth, has shown its inexhausted power in thoughts and words of unabated ten derness? And does not this prove, even apart from the Bible, that the soul is only a lodger in the body and that when the earthly house of this t...

HOW WORMS EAT. Things You Didn't Know About the Tiny Earth Eater. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 January 1916

HOW WORMS EAT. Things You Didn't Know About the Tiny Earth Eater. Many people who have had no pre vious taste or inclination for garden ing are now busily growing war vege tables, and in their work with the fork and spade continually come across what is truthfully termed the common or garden worm. There are thousands of different classes of worms inhabiting both land and water, and there are over a thou sand different species of earthworm alone. How many people, for instance, know how the worm, which has nei ther eyes, limbs, or anything which corresponds to teeth, manages to get about so easily in its underground life? To begin with, a worm is divided into a large number of segments, or joints. The first of these acts as a mouth, and by means of this he eats his way through the earth, obtaining nourishment as he does so, and at the same time casting out all unneces sary matter or earth. The earth passes through no fewer than five distinct chambers in the worm, the last of which is ...

He did his best with the bacon and tomatoes, but gave in at last, and went to sleep on a sofa ki a corner of the room. When he awoke he found the hotel proprietor standing near, looking at him curiously. "Didn't you get enough sleep last night?" "Didn't I get enough sleep!" re peated the other, sitting up suddenly as though galvanised into life. "Tell me one thing—what on earth do you stuff your mattresses with in this place?" "Stuff 'em with? Why, the very best straw it is possible to get in the whole of this country!" "Ah! now I understand." "Understand what?"

Although he had been a fellow-scholar .at Harrow with the young fellow, and had frequent ly met him in London, Burval had never called on him belore.
