SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 7 January 1915
8CRAPS. A good story from Horsham shows how keenly alive the youngsters, at least of that town, are to the disastr ous war. At a public function a very little girl won a doll. She proudly exhibited her treasure to an adult, who, examining it, found the legend, altogether too common in Australia,-," Made in Germany." "Does it read that ?" queried the indignant mitd. On receiving an affirmative reply, she marched up to the prize table and deposited her doll, with "-Some one else can have it."' Mr Rosier, the boot specialist, wishes us to draw attention to his advt. on page 4. The attendance at the picture show given by the Dandenong Pictures on Saturday evening again drew a large and appreciative audience, who ap peared well pleased with the enter tainment. The splendid variety and superior quality of the pictures left nothing to be desired. The pro gramme for next Saturday, besides containing topical and instructive pictures, includes two big star dramas, and a Keystone comedy with C...

WIT AND HUMOUR. Professor: Too bad! One of.my pupils, to whom I have given two courses of instruction in the cultiva tion of the memory, has forgotten to pay me, and the worst of it is I can't remember his name.: "When I arose to speak," related a martyred statesman, -'someone hurl ed a.base, cowardly egg at me, and it struck .me on the chest." S"Ahd what kind of an egg might that be?" asked a young man. S"A base, cowardly egg," explained the statesman, "is one that hits you and then runs." 'He was a member'of a regimental band, and he did not forget to brag about it. "Why, man, we can play the most intricate airs at sight," he was say ing. "Indeed!" said the unbelieving lis tener.- "I should like to hear you play the airs the drum-major puts on." -Young Clubman: Now, I'll tell you chaps the difference between life and love. Everybody immediately expressed eagerness to know the difference. Young Clubman: Life is just one foolish thing after another. Love is just two foolish things a...

A GOOD EAR FOR MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
A GOOD EAR FOR MUSIC. A quick ear for music is a very de lightful gift. Adelina Patti (Baron ess. Cederstrom) herself is stated to be a poor reader of music; but her ear is quite extraordinary. This is how she learnt her part of Carmen -and there are no scores so difficult to master as those of Bizet, so the artists declare. Well, Signor Bevig nani went down to Craig-y-Nos and played the opera through at the piano once or twice a day. In a few days she knew every note from beginning? to end, and sang the intricate music, as we all know, with most perfect success. Harking back to the past we learn how Napodeon had no ear whatever for music yet like a little gentle fid dling and piano-playing as.an accom paniment to his thoughts. Paisellb's airs he preferred to any others, for he said they "interrupted" him not at all. And w'hen not engaged in any very deep thought, he liked the stir ring air of "Vive Henri Quatre." Frederick the Great was a "pretty" performer on the flute; and of 011...

GENERAL GRANT'S KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
GENERAL GRANT'S KINDNESS. General Grant was a kind and warm-hearted man in spite of a cer tain brusqueness of manner. There are many ,war-time inoddents that prove it, and the "Youth's Compan ion" publishes a story that General Logan used often to tell. At the time General .Logan was with General Grant at Holly Springs, Miss., and many people without money to buy provisions were forced to apply to the Northern Army in their distress. Food was always given them it they would take the oath of allegiance to the United States. One day a rickety carriage drew up before General Grant's headquarters, and from it alighted a woman and her negro driver. Ihe woman was admitted to the tent, and the ser vant stood just inside the tent flap. Only a few words nvere necessary to explain matters. An officer who had charge of such cases told the woman that she should have food if she would sign the oath of allegiance. "I cannot do that,".she said. "My hus band and three sons are fighting un der the C...

CRANBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 January 1915
ORANBOURNE. Everything is very quiet here just now, and people appear to be suffering a recovery from the holiday dissipa tions. No doubt things will find a levelin a few days and we shall jog along as before. The splendid rains we have had has caused the grass to spring and look fresh and green. It- has also proved beneficial to those who had vegetable patches, and late potatoes will bs made to produce larger yields. The hay crops have nearly all been harvested, and are snugly stacked, so that the rains would not'affect them. This has proved one of the most wonderful seasons ever known in tihe district for maize crops, and some of the fields are reported to be 10ft and 12ft hight. Nearly everywhere you go you come across the corn looking splendid. The potato crop this year is also a prolific one, and a considerabe!o area is under cultivation the plants now being out in flower, and in some instances digging operations are in progress, but it is difficult to get labor, and the poor f...

The hotel will be an up-to-date structure of some 30 rooms, and will fill a long.felt want. In his capacity as a storekeepar and produce merchant, Mr McNamara has alwayms been most courteous, attentive, and obliging, and no one will grudge him the good luck thab has attended his persistent efforts to secure a suit able house of necrommodatibn in this growing townsbip. Apart from his other excellent qualities "Dinny" is a real good sport, and gives freely to all local institutions. No doubt the hos tel will be open for business in a few months, but not in time for St. Pat rick's Day. What a time "Denis Darling" would have if he could open his bar on that day !
