WATER SCHEMES AND WATER CHARGES. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
WATER SCHEMES AND WATER CHARGES. (To the Editor of "The Advertiser.") Etn,-Some months back a statement was made in the State Parliament by Mr Wart to the ctl'ct that no further water storage would be required for some year., as Mr Mead had assured him that the supply was ample for some years to come. At the time this an nouncement was mode Mr Mead was in America, and before he had again reached our shores we had nearly emp tied both the Waranga Basin and the Goulburn Weir. It now appears that the Water Commission has decided to proceed with an instalment of the Sugar Loaf soheme, but no statement has been given re the estimated lime to complete same. It is quite evident, however, that it will be started about two years after the time that it should be finished. as thousands more acres will be irrigated during the coming season (if possible), than before. Another serious aspect of the case is the question of water charges. Two years ago I was shown a pamphlet at the Closer Settlemen...

FOOTBALL SuePIce\TON v TATURA, These teams, both of which were micus several of their usual players, met on the local Recreation Reserve yesterday. The weather was very bleak, and during the second half a couple of light showers of rain fell. There was a very poor attendance of the public, very little interest being taken in the conteset. The p'ay throughout (spacrs will not allow of detail) did not at any time raise the spectators to a pitch of enthusiasm the home team being always in the ascendant. It seemed, up to the middie of the last quarter, as if the visetocs would not score a goal, and when at the period mentioned they scored two goals in quick succession encouraging cheers greeted their efl'irts. The scores at the close of each quarter stood: First-Shepparton 3.2, Tatura 0.3 Second-Shopparton 7.3.

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his swee heart. Hlie is modest. iHe feels as if the shopman will suspect that he is engaged if he does not take care. Hie believes that the faintest - suggcsticun of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. "Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. I-IHe pretends to examine them critically. but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is going to get a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are passed over in review. He selects none. Ite walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shlopmt'', who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries tihem on his finger. He nev...
