EDUCATION OF THE VOTER. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 5 June 1913
EDUCATION OF THE VOTER. One of the gratifying features of the political battle jnastfought to a finish .is that a large number of young men took an active part in opposing the Referenda proposals. .They had'no personal end to serve, for they were so many that few, of .them have the slightest chance of being candidates in the future, They organized the Liberal Speak. erse' -Association, :nd under its auspices they qualified. themselves thoroughly for the task they have undertiaken, devoting the leisure of many montih to the study of the various issties. Almost without exception the men ing?iestion were amazed by ti%ýpolltlcal lgnoralie of the elect. era, That ignorance was not peculiar ,to .town. or' country, to any:eection of the community, rich or. poor,; many professional men end society women showed them selves as ill versed in the history and meaning of the Constitution, in the i!oings of Federal and State legis. lators, as were the majority of. the artisans and laborers- whbo a...

I7. -THE ELECTIONS., The inclement weather' last Saturday favored the Labor can ,didates. . The Laborite, to his :credit;, makes every: effort to record' is vote, while many, too many in fact, Liberals are in different, and the weather -on the, above" date was a good excuse.for not"going to thhe poll. However, there were seifficient progressive Liberals, who recorded their votes, 'to oust the Labor Government.' In Werri bee excitement -ran . high at times, although the weather was too bleak and cold to raise a stirring argument. - In the morn ing. the ::voting: .wasitfBirly quiet, .but "a, change, came, ;o'er 'the scene"after'luncheon. ·=Frsom about- two o'clocklup to , five; the polling booth was crowded, and. the returning officer,, his assistants,- and the, scrutineers were kept busy.

THE ART OF MARKSMANSHIP. SOME SHOOTING TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 June 1913
IHE ART OF MARKSMANSHIP. - - -- ?- SOME SHOOTING TIPS. Perhaps one of the greatest diflicul ties for the novice to overcome in rifle shooting lies in focussing the eye in aiming. I It is rather strange that the ques tion is not taken up a little more widely, secing how important it is. Anyone with a knowledge of optics knows that simultaneously to focus one's eyesight on three objects at once, when they are at vanrlous dis tnnccs away, and to obtain a clear definition of each object, is an impos sibility. And yet, because a man cannot clearly see at the same time the back sight and foresight of his rifle, and J the object he Is aiming at, he is apt s to imagine his eyesight is faulty. l Now, as one of the three things must appear somewhat indistinctly I while aiming, it is well to know how e to use the eyesight to get the best possible result. d Proceed as follows Place the rifle in tho.__shouler _in.___. a lle us? na iil i -lostaon"- t a-. t member that the farther barc your a- imi...
THE DEVIL AND THE NATURALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 June 1913
THE DEVIL AND THE NATURAL 1ST. A story is told of the great French naturalist, Cuvier, which illustrates the general conclusion, to the effect that animals with both horns and hoofs do not possess dog-teeth (or only small ones), and are herbivor ous. It is statetl that on one occa sion, when Cuvier was ill and fever ish at night, he was visitel (in his dreams) by no less a personage than his Satanic majesty. "Cuvier I" said that potentate, showing a row ' of gleaming white teeth, "it is pall over with you. I am going to kill antd cat yoell." Dut hero Cuvier's great knowledge of animal structure and habit came to his aid, and lihe retorted : "That is nionsense. Look at your hoofs anld your horns. You are not a carnivor. You hatve no canine teeth. You fhave not even a tooth of any kind in the front part of your ipper jaw. You sire herbivorous. You sim ply cannot do it." Nevertheless the Evil One appearedt to be in no degree abashed, and, with Ills well-known aptitude for quroting the ...
A GENTLEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 June 1913
A GENTLEMAN. Perhaps a gentleman is a rarer man than some of us think for. Which of us can point out many such in his circle, men whose aims are generous, whose truth is constant, anti not only constant in its kind, but eleva ted in its degree whose want of manners makes them simple, who can look the world honestly in the face, with. the equal manly sympathy for the great and small.?' - , . We all know a hundrol 'whose coatsa ara well made, and a score who have' cxcellent manners, anod one or two happy beings who are what they call in the Inner circles, anl have shot in to the very centre and bull's-eye of fashlon ; but of gentlemen, how many ?

WHEN WE MUST DIE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 June 1913
WHEN WE MUST'DIE. In the long watches of the winter night, when one has awoke from sOme evil dream, and lies sleepless and ter rifled with the solemn paull of dark ness around one-in such still, dead times only, lying as in the silence of the tomb, one reallses that some day we shall lie in that bed and not think at all : that the time will soon come when we must die. Oar preachers remind us of this often enough, but we cannot realize it in I pew in broad daylight. You must wake in thle middle of the night to do that, and face the thought like a man--that it will come, and come to ninety-nine in a hundred of us, not in a maddening clatter cf mus ketry as the day is won . or in carry ing a line to a strandled ship, or In sulch glorious times, when the soul has mastery over the beod) ; but in bed, by slow degrees. It is in darkness and El'ence only that we realise this ; and then let us lhpe that we humbly remember that death has been conquered for oIs, and that, in spite of our unwor...

Following on a sharp twenty-four hours' trek, we wormed our way, under cover of a very foggy night, right into the nest of our tired olees and "got one in" when it was not expected .... The chief, on his subsequent visit, said we had done "very well," which pleased us much. Undoubtedly, as a technical and military detail, our achievement was quite good, thanks to some of our of ficers, who, by the way, got censured for their share. But that's war, all over. for about a second while he was speaking to us, though some said it wans not a smile at all. However, I am sure it was, and I think that he knew full well that our corps was a scratch lot of barbers, schoolmasters, Piano-tuners, and worse, and this thought tickled and pleased him.-The "Yachting Month ly.,
