George Evans, Esq., President of th« Shire of Narracan, Yarragon. Dear Sir,—Absence from Melbourne has prevented an earlier reply to your letter of the 25th ult., re the probability of the sugar beet industry being taken up by your Jocal farmers Srovided some assistance was reudered y the Government in improving the roads, I have to in form you that I am forwarding to the Director of Agriculture a report on the matter, with the request that the same might be brought under the notice of the Hon. the Minister for Agriculture. I recognise fully that the greatest, if not the sole, hindrance to thesound establishment of the beet industry in your locality is the wretched state of the roads during the winter mouths. However, as the beet crops would be harvested during the month of March or April, there is, at that time, a chanc...

THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 11 October 1906
! THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND We are all worrying ourselves, more or less, about what we can do to enable our children to go through life easily. We give them, the best education we can afford; at least, we are ready to pay a good price for It, although we may not always be so careful as we ought about whether we re- • ceive our money's worth. We strive to keep them free from the ups and downs of life, and if we see a prospect of a rich marriage for a daughter or" a good berth for a son, we sigh 'contentedly and think that we have done well by our offspring. That is the real extent of our solici* tude, in most instances, and we forget that children ought to be our deepest study. We may talk about mould-. ing the character, hut we do very little more than-correct a few faults that \ make themselves obtrusive, teach the young ones to be honest and behave politely, and endeavor to impress our , own opinions upon their minds. Is^ that all the study which is needed? It is an unfortunate ...
Extinguished. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 11 October 1906
Extinguished. A village cricket club, which never by any chance won a match, was discussing the appointment of a captain, and a proposal to re-elect the old Skipper met with ficrce opposition from a minority of the members. "He ain't fit to be a captain," one out-spoken critic bluntly declared. "He'd the cheek to go in first every time he played last season, and with what result? He got no fewer-than ten ducks' eggs!" j "Hear, hear!" a few of the members cried. Then the old captain rose to his ,feet. "Not so fast, my friends," he dryly replied. "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. It's true that I often went in first, and got a duck s egg, but not one of you that followed me stayed at the wickets long enough to hatch it!" This extinguished the opposition, and the old captain was re-elected unanimously. -
CHILDREN'S CORNER? [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 18 October 1906
CHILDREN'S CORNER? Miss Hltchy-Kitchy Ko_.Ko'« Hair. Miss Hitchy Kltchy Ko *fCo lived in ^ lar-away Japan, 1 Where small folk play at shuttlecock . " and learn to use a tan. Her life was full of sunshine, she had hut a single care— This little maid objected to the dress* log ot "her hair. It sorely tried her patiences-each " morn ere she might play, Her hair was brushed and twisted up with pine and flowers gay, And tho' her tresses mad® a picture sweet to look upon. She often whispered to herself, "I wish they all were gone." .One evening at the festival, where lanterns gay are lit, Beneath a flaring dragon Kltchy' Ko Ko chanced to sit; While waving softly to and fro, sus pended in the air, The lantern caught alight and tell on Kitchy Ko Ko's hair. Her screams a rescue quickly brought; the flames were soon put out. Then Kltchy to her head put up hep hands in fear and doubt. Although unhurt her little crown seemed strangely light and bate,« And on the ground lay scorched re mains of ...
WHEN ARE WE STRONGEST? [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 18 October 1906
WHEN ARE WE STRONGEST? The muscular strength of a man does not last so long as does his mental strength. The following figures are the result of research into this ques tion:— The lifting power of the average youth of seventeen is 2801b. In his twentieth year this increases to 3201b. In the thirtieth and thirty-first year it reaches its height, 3661b. At the end of the thtrty-Srst year the strength begins to decline, very slowly at first. By the fortieth year It has decreased 81b,, and this dimin ution continues at a slightly increa sing rate until the fiftieth year is reached, when the figure is 3301b. After this period, the strength fails more and more rapidly, until the weak ness of old age is reached. It is not possible to give reliable statistics^as to the decline of strength after the fiftieth year, as so much depends up on the individual. An Irishman had just come over from Ireland to London to seek his for tune, -vhen, as he was walking along one of the busy thoroughfares, h...
DECOROUS EXCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 18 October 1906
DECOROUS EXCESS. People are sai't to die of gout, or of heart disease, or of kidney disease, or of liver disease, or of a complica tion of these maladies; but what they really die of, when they die prema turely, is usually degeneration of tis sue consequent upon superfluous food and upon superfluous wine, or upon the daily recurring over-taxation of the vital organs by which the process es of nutrition are conducted or con trolled. Sometimes we find the pre mature death ascribed to pneumonia, or to influenza, or to accident; and we may generally read between the lines of the announcement that the powers of vital resistance had pre viously been reauced below their pro per standard. What is the meaning of the annual exodus of rich people to foreign watering-places and "cures" except that good cookery and fine wines have tempted them to the daily over-indulgence of undisciplined Ap petites, and that they seek, in com parative or complete abstinence, and in violent medication, what is a...

TO TEST SILK AND LINEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 18 October 1906
TO TEST SILK AND LINEN. Of the goods sold as "all-wool" there is Dot one-tenth that is genuine. " the greater part the main component I is cotton. The tort is simple. All that J is necessary iB to pull threads and apply a lighted match.! Cotton will go off in a blaze; wool will I shrivel up. To distinguish true, pure linen from the counterfeit article is j even easier. The intended buyer i but wet her finger, and apply it to goods.

CHAPTER XLVII. The Arrival at Heathdale. Upon her arrival at Heathdale, Lady Linton was considerably surprised to And that Sir William had engaged the services of a professional decorator to prepare his home for the reception of his bride, and great Improvements had been made in many of the rooms. The suite over the library, and looking out upon the river, had been exquisite ly fitted up in blue and white and gold for liis wife's special use, while sever al new pictures and pieces of statuary had been added to the already choice collection which the old mansion pos sessed.
