OLYMPIA. IN THE ARENA OF SPORT. FOOTBALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 13 July 1914
OLY MP I A. IN THE ARENA OF SPORT. FOOTBALL NOTES. BY "HALF-BACK." Last Wednesday's match, Shepparton v Tatura, Was about the most uninteresting played on the local ground this season. From start to finish there was a tame noes about it which, to use an old-time phrase, "could almost be felt." Both teams were minus several of the usual players, and juniors were ecquisi tioned to complete the full strength. Tatora. which team was without Con. nora, Alder, J Bobbins, and Blzeloy, did not play anything like the sames game which characterised its previous match against Shopparton, when the latter won by two points only. Whitfield, who, on that occasion, played for the fitat time without getting a goal, made amends on Wednesday by getting six of the 11 eCOrad by Shep parton. Shepparton played without T Darcy, Bob Jones, W Swann, R M'Caskill, Jack Radley, and G Taylor; but the junior men who were included all did well. Two of those who made most favor able impressions were R Maskell and J...
TRAGIC MEMORIES OF TASMANIA. MARCUS CLARK'S FAMOUS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 13 July 1914
TRiAGIC MEMORIES OF TASMANIA. --- +--- MARCUS CLARK'S FAMOUS STORY. It is understood that the dramatisa tion of Marcus Clark's world-famed story, "For the Term of His Natural Life," will be shown in Shepparton on Friday next, July 17th. Unlike other novels, it is a true account of the ter rible happenings in the early thirties, All the characters in the wonderful pro duction had their prototypes inside the prison walls of Van Dieman's Land. It would be difficult, and probably impas sible, to find any one work of fiction that shows a better distribution of the .faculties of a novelist. The plot, com position, style, oharacterisation, dialogue grim humor, descriptive and general atmosphere of the work is a masterpiece; and so tar as toe epic o01 van mlemana Land can be realised and expressed, Marcus Clark has done it. An impor tant feature of the production here is the lecture delivered by Mr M G Bloom fields, who, in' the simplest of language. tells the pathetic story of Rufus Dawes,...

GERMINATING PEACH STONES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 16 July 1914
GERMINATING PEACEH STONES. uIn view of the shortage of peach trees available for planting this season, the following methbod of germinating stones for working over next season will be of interest. -A bed of fresh stable manure is prepared, and as the heap is formed it is trampled down until a solid mass about 2it in depth has been obtained. If stones of the Salway peach are obtainable, this is the best variety for the purpose, and those from Pollar's Cling also make strong, vigorous growers. These stones are to be obtained at a rate of from £8 to £9 a ton. The ston'- are spread over the top of the bed, not eunk in as is the case when seeds are being sown, and are next covered with wet cornsacks. These sacks requloire to be kept moist during the time the seed is germinating. When the bottom heat has cracked the stones they can be taken and set out in nursery beds, or can be stored in a cool dry place until the spring and then be set out. The follow ing March the seedlings should be f...

PREACHER'S HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 16 July 1914
PREACHER'S HARD TIME. A correspondent writes to a paper in another district: "The preacher has a hard time. If his hair is grey, he is old. If he is a young man, he hasn't had experi ence. If he has top 'Jhildren. he nas too many. It ae has none, he shoold have, and isn't setting a gootd example. If his wife sings in the choir she is presuming. If she dosen't she isn't interested in her husband's work. If a preacher reads from notee, he is a bore. Ii he speaks extemporaneously, he isn't deep enough. If he slays at home in his study, he does not mix enough with the people. If he is seen around the streets, he ought to be at home getting up a good sermon. If he calls on any very poor family, he is playing to the gallery. If he calls at the home of the rich, he is an aristocrat. Whatever he dore someone could have told him how to do better. He had a fine time living off dona tions which never come in and promises that never mature. Next to being an editor, it's the most awful life."
