OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 24 January 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Wheat is so much in evidence just now that it isi 11 accordance with the fitness of things that this column should bo devoted to it this week. It is stacked in mountains at the railway stations in the centres of tlio eorcal-pru ducing areas; it is taxing the special facilities provided for its conveyanco to the seaboard, and is creating bu-y scenes at tho wharves. It is literally a golden stream that is to bring in le turii a stream of gold. But in the midst of the satisfaction that everybody must feel at tho garner ing of the good harvest, the attention dii;cctcd to how much better it might have been is not out of place. It is in no spirit of complaint that this is emphasised. Nature has, this year, on tho whole, been kind to us. There are, of course, some localities in which conditions have not been as favorable as could bo wished, but taking things "ful. and by" tho season has been boun tiful.

VARIETIES. Things move along eo rapidly now-1 adays that people who say, "It can't possibly be done," are continually be- j ing interrupted by somebody doinn I It. Among the Hottentots, if a -widow marries again, she is obliged to cut off the ioint of a finger for every hus band she marries after the first;. this she presents to her new husband on her wedding-day, beginning at one of the little fingers first. It is good discipline to do anything regularly, whatever it may be. Irregu larity is as great a thief of time as unpunctuality. Train yourself to havi a time lor everything and to do every thing at its time, and your day will hold half as much again. The noisy waves are failures, bli the great silent tide is a success.

TRUE COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

TRUE COURAGE. •It Is no easy thing." remarked t Afintal authority, "to distinguish be tween true courage and qualities Which may take its place, such aa Stolidity, lack of Imagination, and in sensibility. i> "I once listened to a man- who, as a traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and who boasted of the dangerous situations which lie had faced while his compan ions had run away. When I came to know him better, I found that his cour age was chiefly a matter of insensibil- > fty and dulness of imagination.

MORTLAKE V. NOORAT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

MORTLAKE V. NOORAT. The second match for the season in the District Competition between Mortlake and Noorat resulted in a draw on Saturday afternoon, thus repeating the result of the former game. In many respects Satur day's match was a recurrence of the game played at Noorat a few weeks ago. At Noorat Mortlake had first use of the wicket and scored 141 for 4 wickets, whilst Noorat lost 5 for 55 runs. On Saturday Noorat were the first to bat. They declared their innings closed with 159 runs for nine wickets. At the call of time Mortlake had lost only four wickets for 79 runs. So the position was interesting. The results of both games clearly demonstrate the equality of the teams. Noorat are stronger in batting than Mortlake, but are weaker in bowling. The day was particularly oppressive, and a strong northerly breeze in terfered with the bowlers. Rev. Rolland and Ponting monopolised the scoring for the visitors, the former making 60 and Ponting 53. Rolland's innings was by far the m...

VISITORS ENTERTAINED. At 12.30 the visitors were enter ained at dinner at the Mount Shad well Hotel, where, a most appe tising repast was served by Miss. Doughuey, and needless to state, full and complete justice .was done the many toothsome dainties pro vided. Seated at the head of the table was Cr. Thos. Montgomery, J.P., vice-president of the Mort lake club, and he was supported by Captain Jones and the veteran cricketer, Mr. F. A. Cole. Cr. Montgomery extended to the visi tors a very hearty welcome. He referred to the plersure they felt in being honored by a visit from the Warrnambool cricketers. Although he knew practically little or noth ing concerning the game, yet from what he could gather, a most en joyable game was resulting. The people of Mortlake and district were always glad to meet and re new acquaintances with Warrnam bool citizens, for they regarded that town not only as their natural port, but as their capital city. It was very pleasing to them to find such friendly...

INTER-DISTRICT CRICKET. MORTLAKE V. WARRNAMBOOL. STIRRING FINISH ENDS IN TIE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

INTER-DISTRICT CRICKET, i MORTLAKE V. WARRNAMBOOL. ' ] STIRRING FINISH ENDS IN TIE. i The weather which greeted the cricketers for Monday's match at the Mortlake Recreation Reserve was perfect in every degree. The sky was cloudless, whilst the sun's rays were tempered with a nice cool breeze. The fielding ground was fast, the outfield being particularly so, whilst the wicket played as true as was possible to obtain. There was nothing to mar the bowler or batsman, and the opportunity was provided the members of each team to give the best of their cricketing capabilities. The attendance was meagre, due chiefly to so many counter attrac tions, but those who did attend, enjoyed to the fullest extent the performances of the respective players, which was evidenced by the continued applause that greeted either a good stroke, a well-de livered ball, or good ground work. It is nearly twenty years since a match took place between Wair nambool and Mortlake on the Mortlake ground, and it is in ...
