Backward heifers conse quent on the slackened demand re cently existing from the Western District owing to the absence of rain, were not in request. Store cattle in the shape of bullocks and young stuff sold at recent full v:alues. The following were the quotations...

UNBLISSFUL IGNORANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
UNBLISSFUL IGNORANCE. The men who have occupied impor tant posts in state-craft have not al ways been men of "light" as well as leading. We lost Java to France be cause Lord Liverpool knew nothin about it. "Java? Where is Java?" he said. "Let France have it." Sim Ilarly we let France have Chanderna gore, a territory of some three and a .calf square miles in the heart of Ben gal. Once it rivalled Calcutta in tra. ding importance. It was bombarded and captured, by the English in 1757, restored six years later, then twice re. taken. In 1816 it was finally restored to the French because. our Foreign Minister believed it to he one of the West Indian Islands. But ignorance of geography does not wholly belong to the past. A British Ambassador of our own time has been heard seriously to ask if Madras is not near the Cape of Good Hope, and whether the two places are connected by railway.

NOBLE SILENT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
NOBLE SILENT MEN. Noble silent men are scattered here and there whom no newspaper makes mention of. A country that has none or few of these is in a bad way; a forest that has no roots, all turned into leaves and boughs, must wither and be no forest. The first sign of a truly powerful nature is noticeable in the demeanor. Performance comes later and does not surprise us, for it has already beer pledged by the behavior. A man of this description may bE gentle, modest and unassuming, never pressing himself into notice, and yet we do notice him, for we cannot help it; and he has an air of self-command and self-poise, an absence of heat or passion, or strain or exaggeration, a courteous hospitality to another's thought, a firm and decisive utterance of his own, an individuality which sur rounds him, protecting him from as sault by enforcing respect-all of which combine to assure us of a power in reserve that cannot fail to make itself known, though in what di. rection we' may not be able...
THE WORTH OF LEISURE HOURS [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
THE WORTH OF LEISURE HOURS There are some men and womer whose work is so heavy and engross ing that they have no leisure; but sue.c people are relatively few in number, and are, as a i~ule, at the head of great enterprises. Practically all young men and we men have some hours from work whicl: need not be devoted to exercise and sleep-two things which ought never to be overlooked. These unoccupied hours are of price. less worth if they are wisely used. They determine the value of the working hours because they educate a man to use and enjoy what the work ing hours bring him, for a man's abil ity to enjoy success depends on his intelligence, his task, and the variety of his interests. Many of the most successful busi ness men have so many interests, out side their business, that they can al ways. give themselves the rest of a change of occupation, and can get pleasure and profit out of any form of leisure. They understand that in order to use wealth with judgment, and to get satisfact...
SHOULD WOMEN ALWAYS WOO AND PROPOSE? [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 April 1916
SHOULD WOMEN ALWAYS WOO AND PROPOSE? Prom time immemorial it has beeni dvcreed that men must woo and we nen wait to be wooed, and that even to take advahtage of a leap year was both indelicate and unmaidenly on the part of a girl. .Two champions for the weaker sex however, have arisen, who declare thai the race would be improved if women were allowed the same prerogative as man in regard to wooing and wedding These champions are Dr. Denslow Lewis, an author and sociologist, but also president of the Medico-Legal So 3iety of America, and chairman of the -ygienic section of the Medical Asso ciation, and Dr. Emil Reich, the cele. brated lecturer. "There is no doubt that the seleo "ion of the husband should really rest with the woman," says Dr. Lewis. "In the animal world it is invariably the female that chooses her mate. Only in the human race is the right of selec lion arbitrarily given to the male. Left to herself, the woman would be the most discriminating chooser. With all sorts of...
ABOUT TRAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 April 1916
ABOUT TRAMPS. -e fact I have learned concerninal the tramp (says a humorous writer), which is at variance with my own and, [ rather fancy, most other people's pre conceived ideas of him. He is not, as Is almost universally supposed, an aim less wanderer on theface of the earth. He is a wanderer, but assuredly not aimless. He is always goiig, some where, somewhere in particular, some where definite, I mean, and it is most :y, imperative that he should get there by to-morrow morning. Not infre quently he is on his way to near rela tives, a brother, a son-in-law, or what not, and one can't help wondering wometimes exactly how delighted that brother or daughter'i husbarnd will be to see him. Nor is his life objectless. ilis object is work. It is to the end ,hat he may work to-morrow that he craves of you the copper to-day. His complaint against, society is not' the complaint of most of us-that it ,does not supply him with a sufflciency of purple and fine linen-but that it will not permi...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 April 1916
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Win. B. Edwards, of Bacchus Marsh, now in Egypt: Have been to Cairo five. times. It's a dirty old hole, and the native quarter most forbidding. Frequently one has to pass through smellful alleyways to see something really interesting. In fact, the most his toric and interesting places are in the most objectionable quarters. The place where Moses is supposed to have been found is one of those places; a Coptic Church (the oldest Christian Church in Egopt) is an other; and the Dead City anotlier. My first visit into Cairo was made with some strange chtaps, who re garded the native quarter as- the most important! Certinly ..one has to see it to see Cairo conmpletely. At anyrate, one visit suffices this chic ken. On Saturday a party of about 100 was~ organised to a-nake a tour round Cairo. The trip was rather enjoyable, and the ride round alone worth the 20 piastres charged. Three modes of conveyance here--electric trams, carriages, and donkeys. We rode- fiv...

..MYRNIONG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) One of tile best crops of hay grown in this district was recently ' marketed by Mr. F. Drury. From nine acres he sold (arid weighed over Messrs. Pearce Bros. weigh bridge) the enormous quiantity of 48 tons of oaten hay. Thle quality was first-class, being bright in color, and veiy grainy. The soil, which S Was artificially manuredl, had grown a crop of hay the year previotisly. The renovating of the local school is a piece of Work which not pnly reflects credit on the Department, :. but is also highly appreciatel by the teacher, parents, and pupils alike. An untidy or ill-kept school, Mwith surroundings to match, is cal c? ulated to produce slovenliness in children. And the local school, pre vious to its recent "touching-up,"' was verging on that statie of affairs. The School Coumnittee has been urg ing for this work to be done for the - a.st 12 months, and its present chalrming appearance, together --with severitl niew gates, new fences, ou...
