STRANGE LEGACIES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
STRANGE LEGACIES. Many cases are on record of singu lar bequests.. Some years ago in New Orleans there died a wealthy old man who had, been noted for his shrewd ness in blsiness matters. One of the bequests in his long will was a hair brush that lie had used for many years. This. brush he gave to a ne phew ,with the proviso that the brush shotild be kept in the family vault one month out of twelve and in a mahog any box. The, acceptance of the bruish'meant that the nephew was to ltlerit 'and' njoy two-thirds.

DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
D.AIRDIYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYINGJ INDUSTRY. The most. obvious and appreciable value of the dairy industry to u State is found.in the worth of its products (writes the "Farm and Home"). This includes butter end cheese, the milk used as food, and the by-products of the dairy in veal and pork. It does not include the other very important by-produce-the manure, which, if properly conserved and applied to the soil, would reach a large value. Care ful experimentation has shown that the excreta of a dairy cow is worth about 4d. per day, computed at the standard valuation of the plant food substances which they contain. The worth of the manure is conditional upon the character and amount of the based upon higher feeding than some food. supplied to the animal, and the current estimates., of value may be dairymen practise. This by-product is. not sold. If the dairying is pro perly. done, every possible part of it is restored to the soil, not only main taining, but increasing its fertili...
LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess no inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numb.,r - of young lawyers turned .oose upon the community every year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g'ven to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite idle boys to break the windows of exem plary citizens, with a view of creating a demano for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope to profit by the dlamage. rlowever this may be, it is quitd certain that the proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the deman...

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
WOMAN'S. WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I love old mothers-mothers with white hair, And kindly eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over slep Jug babes. There is something in their quiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbath afternoons; A knowledge in their.deep unfaltering eyes That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, While all the echoes of forgotten. songs Seem joined to lend a sweetness to their speech. Old mothers!-as they pass with slow-timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to Syouth's strentgh; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden walks, old roses, and old loves.
REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. Many interesting incidents relative to the siege of Ladysmith are record ed in "Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by the late Meltdn Prior: "The enemy succeeded in placing thirty-two guns on the heights bove the town, and kept up such an inces sant fire that the troops and civillans were soon engaged in digging bomb proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boer guns by their sound, and. gave them amusing nanes. Three of the large ones they called 'Long.i Tom,'. 'Puffing Billy,' and : 'Weary ýV.illie.' Then there was 'Silent Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first warning we got 'that it had been fired. "In spite of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew accustomed to the shelling. . One'day the Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no one was hit, and they went on playing. The Boers were so interested appar ently that th...
He Had Often Heard of Him. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
He Had Often Heard' of Him. It was a contested will case, and one of the witnesses, in the course of giving his evidence, described the testator minutely. "Now, sir," said the counsel for the defence, "I suppose we maay take it, from the flattering description you have given of the testator, his good' points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He wps no acquainitance of mine!" ,'Indeed! el,': then, you must have observed him very "carefuilly whenever you. saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life,"': was the reply. 'rThis prevarication, as counsel thought it, was too much, and he said: "Now, now, don't trifle' with the court, please! How, I ask you, could you, in the name of goodness, de' scribe him so minutely .if you never saw him or never knew' him?" "Well," replied the witness, and the smile which overspread lis features. extended to the faces of those in court, "you see, I married his...
KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. Many a woman who would not. think of lightly breaking a promise made to a grown-up person is utterly careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is'cdnvenient at the mhoment, and ap paxrently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises is a matter in'which she can please herself, and that her children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. A mother who acts thus does her children grievous harm. She forgets that the sense of justice is strong in quite a l:ttle child, and that it is nat ural and reasonable that he should expect his parents to be as good as their word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this. *soon loses her children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. When boys and girls learn to doubt their parents' truthfulness they soon...
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 July 1914
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were merely the result of accident. An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching, He drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When he removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground, The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house. Her tracks were left in the piles of sugar, and when it was noticed that the spots we...

MR MUTTON FAREWELLED. BY POULTRY CLUB AND SOL DIERS' ASSOCIATION. BANQUET AND PRESENTATIONS.

SHEPPARTON RIFLE UNION MR JAS NUGENT TOP SCORER. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 13 July 1914
SHEPPARTON RIFLE UNION MR JAB 1UGENT TOP SCORER. The [quarterly matches of the Shepparton District Rifle Union were held on the Tatura range on Wednesday. The conditions were teams of 5 aside, ranges 500 and 600 yards. Owing to the limited target accommodation, the contest was reduced to 500 yards. The conditions for shooting were any thing but desirable, as a cold cross wind swept the range all day in creasing and decreasing in velocity coupled with various changes of light, gave marksmen a problem to maintain their elevation, and seve ral experienced shooters failed to maintain their average form. Mr Jas Nugent put up the meritorious performance of the possible 12 bulls-eyes, the last three being cen trals. Under the weather condi tions the performance was a. great one, and was greeted by hearty applause by the large number of competitors, who complimented him for his fine score. Mr Wise man (Tatura) also put up a fine shoot, dropping only two points. Despite the disappointments, ...
