SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

SERVICE. The word that ?tands at the centre of what has to be done is-a very inle nsting word indeed. It has hithorto been supposed to be a word of charity a word of phiiimnthropy. This word is "service." IThe one thing that -the business men of the United Stateoare now discovering, some -of them for themselves, and some by suggestion, is that they are not going to be allow ed to make any money except for a quid pro quo; that they must render-a service or get nothing; and tha~t in the regulation of business the Government must determine whether what they are doing is a ser:ice or not. Everything is business, and politics will be reduced to that standard. The question is, "Are you giving anything to society when you want to take something out of society?" A large part--too large a part--of the fortune-making of r cent decades has oonsistod in getting something for nothing. I do not in clude brains in the category of "notli ing." A man is entitled to the earn ings of his brain. I want...

The Biggest Job on Earth. RUNNING THE U.S.A. AS A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

The Biggest Job on Earth.. RUNNING THE U.S.A. AS A BUSINESS PROP1'OSITION. Under the above attractive title, W. B3ayard Hale gives in a recent num ber of the "World's Work" as fine a bird's-eye view of the compass of Anecrican enterprise, and the scope f: its Government, as any plain man ii the street could ask for. Listen to his summary of the growth of the United States: "In 1856, when Woodrow Wilson was born, the United States were thirty-four; to-day they are forty eight. Then we possessed no outly ing territory. To-day, we have Alaska, Porto Rico, the Pannama Canal Zone, the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii and the Tutuila Island-more than 8000 Islands. Our population then was 28 millions; now it is 110 millions "In 1856 the country possessed 22,000 miles of railroads; to-day 210,000. Then, not a telegraph in strument clicked, not a telephone bell tinkledl. That year the people of the United States spent seven million dollars for postage st~raps; this year we shall spend 250 millions-...

BOWLS. SHEPPRTON v. SEYMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

BOWLS. SHEPPRTON V. SEYMOUR. The return match between the above clubs for the Goulburn Valley competition was played at Shep parton on Wednesday. The day, though warm, was not unpleasant. The visitors had a good combina tion but they were. placed at a dis advantage as the green was not anything so true and accurate as the Seymour one, and this account ed in a great measure, for their de feat, which was brought about in the last four or five ends, when the visitors lost ground while their op ponents went up. The game-was very exciting, and up to the fif teenth end it was a dead certainty that Seymour would win, as they had a strong lead. After that they bowled with bad luck, very often having three in when the last bowl had to be sent down, which com pletely altered the scores. The following are the repective teams: SHUPPARTON No. I Riok--Malbv, Downey BSandy, Whitehead (capt.) ... 22 No. 2 Rink- Stubbs.

WATER SUPPLY FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

WATER SUPPLY FORSTOCK. An old friend of our London corres pnadent, the leading dairyfarmer and breeder of Ayrshire.cattle in the West; of Scotland, writes to a local paper on this imnportaht subject which, he says, receives too little attention from the stock owners: - So long as an animal will drink it, no water is considered too foul for horses or cows. Not only is this ne glect on the part of stock owners reo ponsibleo for many cases of colio in hor ses, but many other diseases also are directly traceable to impure water. An unlimited supply of good, pure water is escential to the health of ial animals used for farm purposes. Pools formed from surface drainage, where large quantities of organic matter are car ried into them, and -wells or pools contiguous to-farm yards or manure heaps are specially to be avoided. Water from good tanks or wells, run ning streams, and properly construc ted pools is usually good, but too much care ocannot be taken in this matter. The quantity of wat...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

Correspondence. -4--- TO THE EDITOR OF Tei eXPRESS. Sir,-Permit me through the medium of your valuable space to draw attention to the following:-During the Snmmer months the male section of the commun ity make use of a large hole in the bend oItthe river below the old pumping ast tion for swimming purposes, as it is much more convenient than the place set apart for'this purpose down in the old town. At the present tlme no provisiod whatever has been made in the shape of shelters or dressing room, and it is quite a common thing to see groups of boys and yonng men standing and sitting about in various stages of undress and others struggling into shirts, trousers etc. in full view of the public. This bend is a favorite picnic resort for the women and children, and numerous complaints. are heard.- No restriction, whatever are placed on the bathers and in conse quence many of them even dispense with the conventional fig leaf and be. snort themselves'in varlOus indecent at. titudes.

Farm Notes [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

S:Farm Notes Many farmers in America are usltg pulverised limestone .to apply to their land to correct its acidity, but sew have put it to use in the stable. It has been with a more powerful chemical reaction was needed -to abolishh stable edours and flies. Accordinglyj farmers have as sumed that the expense for such effort was beyond their means. It has beei left to the leading horse commission firm :of "New York to bring to public aktention the beneficial effects of cheap ground Ilimestone in the stable. Williaml Bradley has been using limestone dust in his stables where three hundred to live hundred-work horses are kept, and nvhen he obtained a controlling interest in the Fiss, Doerr and Carroll Hlorse UoC, he introduced the limestone into the sale stables an well.' This is the very linest grade of pulver-ised lime stone. It is scattered daily throughout the stables to dry up the llodrso, and consequently reduce the odour. It is also thought to reduce the number of Ilies. Many fa...

Bush Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

Bush Fires. With the advent of hot weather the dangerous bush fires have again made their appearance, doing more or less damage in all parts of the district. During the latter part of last week at night the hills in the south were illuminated by a blaze of light miles in extent, indicating that the mountain range was one mass of fire. The settlers in the vicinity were considerable losers so far as gras- and fencing are con. cerned. The fire was raging in iMr D. White's paddock (leased to IMr A. Stewart), at Kobyboyn, when about 100 acres of grass was burnt. Mr M'Cormack lost 600 acres, hiM C. A. M'Kenzie 500 acres and Mr Meadows was also another sufferer. In the vicinity of Tallarook the fires have also prevailed. A fire started on Doherty's land adjoining the Reedy Creek station, the homrne. steads of Messrs Doherty, sen., and J Bruce narrowly escaping destruc. tion; the flames reached the gar dens ahd burnt everything to the walls of the house. At the Reedy Creek station, the prop...

LAKESIDE VILLA DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

LAKESIDE VILA DRAMA. In defence of his act in shooting and killing a neighbor within a German vil la, a middle-aged man recently told a story as strange as anyth;ng appearing rn a criminal fiction. The dead man was Leo Sohweyer, a well known Stuggart merchant. Schwe yer was shot at his residence by a man of independent means named Mackley, who owns a villa on the Neberlinger See, n branch of Lake Constance. Mackley states that he was on terms of intimate friendship with Sohweyer, and was particularly attached to-one of the latter's daughters,.whom he, a bach elor of 50, had promised to'make his sole heir. Schwyer, who- was alone in his villa, his family being in Stug gart, invited him to drink with him a iottle or- two- of wine, which he notioed was-of usneial potaoy. When a oonsiderable quantity of this heady li quor had been consuled, the host in duced-his guest, "by -way of ajoke," to write to dictatiox and sign a will leaving all his property tothegirl already mentioned.

SEYMOUR WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

SEYMOUR WATER SUPPLY. THe members of the Seymour Water T~ist are to be commended for the very efficient and practical way in which they discussed the all-important question last Monday of providing a better water supply for the town of Seymour. Meta phorically speaking, they took the "bull by the horns,' which was their only alternative; and got out of a difficulty which threatened at one time to engulf them, and com pletely destroy their reputation as public representatives. During the last few days there has been a great " hue and cry" about turning off diie water, which had the effect of arousing all the latent energies of the commissioners, and inducing them to face the music straight away. The discussion that ensued upon the question was practical and to the point. To start off, there was a concensus of opinion that the trust must supply both the railways and the ratepayers with a copious supply during the hot weather, but how to get that sup ply was the question tuat had to be...

NOT FORGOTTEN. Somne me ago, in ascattered, re mote country parish in Scotland, the minister of tile kirk, accompanied by the ruling elder, went a rather long dis tance to visit an old parishioner for the purpose -of .'"'catechising." The walk was not only long, but somewhat arduous and their appetites were very oeen when the destihation' was roached. Be fore the serious business conneoted with the \'.it was mooted the two kirk of ficials tlinted in unmistakable terms that their bodily needs required immediate attention. The old parishioner was not reluct ant to take the hint, and at once placed on the table sundry country re tfreshments, such as bread, milk and the like.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914

OF RURAL jNTh1EET (By "Rusticus.") One of the most welcome of the in timations made by the :State Premier at Essendon the other night was that some proper investigation is. to be made as to the manner in which the operations of the Closer- Settlemnient system are being conducted; ,Every body interested in the working of the land must realise the need bor this. There are many serious phases which must be grappled with, and that with out delay. There is the failure of a large number of settlers on many of these irrigated settlements to keep up their payments to the State--the payments of the usual purchase instalments, and interest upon outstandiing nistalm.ents, interest upon arrears, and interest upon loans advanced on farms by the board. It has been shown that the total arrears due by settlers to the State on account of the purchase ot their land exceeds £150,000. This money covers only payments over due, and interest, but does not, of course, include the payments of pur ohaseo mon...
