Waranga S.S. Picnic. AN ENJOYABLE FUNCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
Waranga 3.8. Plcnlo. AN ENJOYABLE FUNCTION. An event which is annually increasing in popularity is the -Waranga picnic—a function held on the banks of Lake Waranga for the purpose of providing the children attending the local State school, and, incidentally, the adult population of the district, with a day's outing and the opportunity for social intercourse. Less than half-a-dozen years ago a number of leading residents of this lake-side hamlet decided that the district of Waranga had assumed proportions of sufficient import ance to warrant the conducting of an annual State school picnic—previous to this the people had been content to throw in their lot with, some of the neighboring centres—and a move was accordingly made to bring about the desired effect. On the occasion of the first gathering the attendance was small and was composed almost exclusively of local resident", but with the advent of the school committee and the coming of Miss Anderson to take over the reins of governme...

Kissing The Union Jack. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
Kissing The Unipn Jack. One can gather some idea of the en thusiasm for the British troops which exists among the people of Belgium from the following extract from a letter pub lished in the " Daily Telegraph " :— " The Belgians were at first extremely dubious of our intentions to send troops to Belgium to support them and night after night at a certain well-known sea side resort they crowded about the British Consulate for news. When it was definately known that the British Expeditionary Force had started Bel gium men and women asked for the Union Jack to be brought out by the Consul, and when this was done they filed past, kissing it. I saw this with my own eyes." The two young sons of the King of Belgium walked through the streets of Brussels a few days after the declaration of war. A London newspaper corres pondent presented them with miniature Union Jacks, which they reverently bisBed, amid the cheers of the by standers.
THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
THE WAR. The war in Europe has progressed yet another week and still we know little or nothing of what lias really happened. That there haB been serious fighting is certain, and there has no doubt been very heavy losses on both sides. The Germans still maintain their front line in the west, which is all well within the French border and about half-way on the road to Paris. It is claimed that the German right wing is being gradually forced back, but the operation seems to be slow, and there is a deal of hard fighting to be done ere the enemy is forced back into German territory. Then, and only then, will the ruthless destroyer of property be paid back for the misery he has caused in the land of the peaceable Belgian, who desired nothing more than to be allowed to dwell peacefully on, but who has demonstrated that he can fight ferociously when the honor of his country is threatened. Antwerp has fallen, and this was due to the terrific German gun-fire, which reduced modern forts to pow...
CAULFIELD CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
CAULFIELD CUP. The Oaulfield Cap will be run oa Satur day (to-morrow), when some 21 horses will face the barrier. The quality of the field is on this occasion if anything above the usual high standard, there being, to use a racing metaphor, several " stone certainties." This scribe, however, takes what courage—and the very little knowledge—he possesses in both hands and plumps for — Uncle Sam 1, St. Ca'rwyne 2, Anna Carlovna o, and gives Aleconner an outside chance.

FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
FIRE. Just about eleven o'clock on Wed nesday evening last the citizens of Rush worth > were startled by the violent clanging of the firebell. Soon people were running in every direction trying to locate the outbreak, which was later seen to be down the Murchison road in the direction of the Football Club hotel, and about half a mile away, at the resi dence of Mr Frederick Wall. It would appear that Mr Sam Peel first saw the fire from across the railway line, where he resides, - and he at once gave the alarm. Even .then the building was well alight. Members of the Fire Brigade promptly got their reel under way, but on arrival on the scene found that the supply of water was practically nil, and they, like all the other spec tators, could but look on and await the entire demolition of the building, which would probably have ensued under any circumstances, as the fire had got too great a hold. How the fire originated is a mystery, as there was no one on the premises at the .time. Mr...

The Colbinabbin Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
The Colbinabbin Picnic. This annual function, to which a large namber of people anxiously look forward in anticipation of a pleasant day on the ranges, takes place on Wednesday next. Certainly the country does. not present such a pleasing appearance as on former occasions, and the ground will carry none of that beautiful green verdure which made picnicing under the lovely shade trees such a delight, still other things prevail which warrant the journey to this popular trysting spot. The programme has been framed on even more liberal and comprehensive lines and a capital after noon's sport is assured, while a special train will run through from Murohison East, thus providing visitors with easy means of access to the ground. The fares are 3s 6d from. Murchison East and Murohison ; 2s 6d from Waranga ; Is 9d from Rushworth, and proportionate rates from Moora and Wanalta. . Motors and .vehicles will meet the train at Colbinabbin to oohvey passen gers to the picnic ground. The Rushworth b...
FIGHT YOUR WAY UP. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
FIGHT YOUR WAY UP. The many who have to take tne world's rough and tumble are prone to envy the few who roll through it unjolted, in cushioned vehicles on pa tent springs. The toilor as he stum bles through its thorny thickets, and limps over its foot-blistering gravel, is apt to curse the ill luck that placed him on such a hard road, and to sigh for a seat in one of the splendid equipages that glide so smoothly over Fortune's macadamised turnpike. Born with a pewter spoon in his mouth, he covets the silver one which was the birth-gift of his do-nothing neighbour. The more fool he. Occu pation is the "immediate jewel" of life. It is true that riches are no bar- to exertion. Quite the reverse, when their uses are properly under Stood. But the discontented worker, who pines for wealth without being willing to labor for it, regards the idleness in which it Tyould enable him to live as the acme of temporal hap piness. He has no idea of money as a great motive power, to be applied in ent...
A "WAXWORK" ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
A "WAXW^hK" KOWlAN'wi One hundred and twenty-seven fears ago there was in Paris a Swiss physician, M. Curtius, who kept a wax Work exhibition. He had a little ftifece, Marie Gresholtz, wha showed ierself to be wonderfully skilful in modelling. She was sent for to Ver. lailles to teach the aft to the brothel and sister j)f the haples.*. Louis XVI This little Marie Gresholtz was called i»ck to her uncle's house before the Revolution broke out. There in the early days, while the King's power was still strong, the infamous Marat ay in hiding. Marie Gresholtz saw aim but twice—while he wa«> conceal ed in her house, and again while she was taken by two gendarmes to make a cast of his dead face. For success ive weeks crowds thronged to see this model, and twenty-five pounds a day was taken at the door. When the girl was visiting the Bastille, only-the help of Robespierre saved her from falling headlong into the dungeons. The "sea-green incorruptible" remarked with sour geniality that "i...
Specialist Explains Cause Of Stomach trouble. VALUABLE ADVICE TO SUFFERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
Specialist Explains Cause Of Stomach trouble. VALUABLE ADVICE TO SUF FERERS. a "There ace many different forms of stomach trouble," said a well-known specialist recently, " bat practically all are traceable to excessive acidity and food fermentation. That is why the resultB obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing. Admitting fermentation and consequent acidity of the food contents to be the underlying cause of most formB of indigestion, it naturally follows that the use of a reliable antacid such as the pure bisurated magnesia which is so frequently prescribed by physicians, will produce better results than any drug or combination of drags. Accordingly I almost invariably advise those who com plain of digestive trouble to get some bisurated magnesia (note the name care fully, as other forms are unsuitable for the purpose), from the chemist, and take half a teaspoonful of the powder, or two 5 grain compressed tablets, with a little water after meals. This, by immed...
BLIND MAN COULD SEE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 16 October 1914
BLIND MAN COULD SEE IT. John B. HerreshofC, the blind yacht builder, of Bristol, Ehode Island, was a guest at a large party in Bristol, when the hostess was proudly dis playing a cabinet just received from an antique shop in New York, and o-ught for seven hundred dollars as a product of the year 1710. It was ob served by one of the other guests that Herreshoff alone refrained from fa vorable comment, although the old man had examined the cabinet by his delicate touch. Finding an opportun ity, the man approached Herreshoff and asked him the reason for his sil ence. Herreshoff chuckled. "I'll let you into a secret, if you don't breathe a word of it to the good Mrs. ," he said. The promise having been given, Herreshoff led the way with his un erring directness to the cabinet, .and, extracting a drawer, he ran the'tips of his fingers lightly over the bottom and chuckled again: , "Circular saws in 1710 ? Poor Mrs. We save and toil, we worry and fret; and all the while close over us bends...
