COIMADAI. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
COIMADAI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) On Sunday last Miss Lila Bennett, eldest daughter of Mi. E. Bennett, licensee of the Coimadai hotel, had the misfortune to break her leg; in a remarkably easy manner.. In jump ing from the top of a three railed fence, she landed on a stone, which turned, her ankle, and caused her to fall. On attempting to rise, the girl discovered that' her -leg was badly broken below the knee. Dr. Ryan was soon in attendance, and set the injured limb. A start will shortly be inade to put the track to the Antimony mine in order. Shares have been well taken up, and it is hoped that ere long the mine will be in full work ing order. Farmers have difficulty in getting on with their ploughing. A heavy fall of rain is badly needed.
THE SINS OF THE SON. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
THE SINS OF THE SON. In Busreh, Persia,. the hand of na tive justice punishes the robber with great severity, as may be inferred from the following episode, the truth of 'which is vouched for by a gentle man of position long resident in the district: On a certain occasion a native of low class attacked this gentleman. seized the bridle of his horse, and de manded baksheesh. The rider prompt ly delivered his assailant a blow with his whip, and proceeded to the head sheikh, to whom he reported the mat ter. The. sheikh undertook to see that the miscreant should be suitably pun ished, and the traveller .continued his journey. On his return he again visit ed this dignitary, who, bowing low, assured the gentleman that both the guilty man and his father had been severely bastinadoed! The traveller ventured to remark that the father, at any rate, was inno cent, and asked why punishment had been meted out to him. ,The reply was quickly forthcominr "Oh, we punished the man for his wicked act,...

TAKE MORE SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
TAKE MORE SALT. Health and good looks are insepar able, and in the exercise of methods and remedies for the preservation of outward beauty it must not be forgot ten that a good digestion, rich red blood and well-knit flesh are essen tials in the formula of beauty. I want to say a word about salt as a factor in the building of th'e house beautiful in which the woman beautiful re sides. The Russians are in the habit of beginning a meal with a slice of bread spread with salt. This for a relish and the stimulating effect it has on the gastric functions. A solution of salt and water taken early in the morning is an excellent tonic. One cause of Irish" peasant beauty is the use of salt on potatoes eaten three times a day in youth, resulting 1i complexions of red and white, won derful strong hair and perfect health. Centuries ago Pliny counted the sun and salt as the most life-giving things in the world. Salt has an important work as one of the valuable constituents of strong healthy blood...
HINTS FOR AMATEUR SINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
HINTS FOR AMATEUR SINGERS. The great secret of voice produc tion is relaxity; the great difficulty is to get the relaxity by copscious mus cular control. The difference between. the Latin, English and German lan guages must be remembered. If a'choir contains many English and ' few foreigners, the voices of the latter are always heard above the rest. A great deal of harm is done by applying words before the tone is proiberly placed. First establish the proper and correct production, then apply: words. Vocalisation is essential in the - beginning to get the voice out of the throat-to place it in the cavi ties of the face, or, as the French have it. dans le masque. The breath must come evenly, and the words lie on the tone without interrupting it. Do not rely on your temperament, but on your brains. -Our good singers do not bury their temperament, but with the temperamnent the mind must be ustd. For while the mode or lack of inspiration of the moment may debar you from a full command o...
DUE TO THE FOG. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
OUE TO THE FOG. Fog' has a bewildering effect, not only on human beings but also on an imals, save those who find their war by scent. Birds are entirely confused by Vt Tame pigeons remain all day motion. less and half asleep either just in or just outside their cotes. Chickens remain motionless for hours during heavy fogs. No bird sings or utters a call, perhaps because it fears to betray its whereabouts to an unseen foe. During one very thick fog in Lon don a blind man was found wandering -ibout quite lost as to his surroundings. As he was in the habit of visiting the city every day from a suburb, he was asked why he had gone astray. It was supposed that weather would have made no difference to him. He said that in a fog the ground "sounded quite differently."
The Only Way. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
The Only Way. ' The bell rang three times, and the man at the deck hastily reached fdr a flannel bandage. This he put round his neck. Then he arranged a sling, in which he put one arm, disarranged his hair, drew down the corners of his mouth, got out of his chair, and painfully limped towards the door. "Mr. Jones?" inquired the well dressed caller who opened it at that moment. The man with the bandage -half-sup pressed a groan. "Yes, that's my name. What can I do for, you?" "You appear to be suffe.ing," said the intelligent caller. "Suffering!" returned the other. "Do you think I'm doing this for fun? But w?hat is your business, sir?" "Er-pardon me," stammered the caller, "I think I'll drop in some other time--eh?" "It's some trouble," soliloquised the man with the bandage, as he removed the paraphernalia and returned to his desk. "But it is really the quickest way to get rid of these life insurance agents. That man will never trouble mee again." A steam launch belonging to a bat ti...
THE HOME CIRCLE. LET THE HUSBAND RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915
THE HOME CIRCLE. LET THE HUSBAND RULE. \- The following is the advice of an experienced matron to girls about to be-married: Don't begin with the determination to domineer over your husband. The satisfaction you may derive from such a policysis a poor one at the best. The sell-assertive woman who, com mences married life with the idea that she is to be autocrat of her new hbome, and who dictates the domestic policy, without reference to her husband's opinions, will in many cases wreck the happiness of that home. Every woman, sooner or later, feels that to be truly happy a wife should be able to be proud of her husband. And can you be proud of a man who suffers himself to be "henpeckedl?

THE Dominion of New Zealand had experience of a system of provincial governments before she adopted Unification, under which she has prospered immensely. Mr. Fisher has recently visited New Zealand, and he must have imbibed some local knowledge of the two systems. He should turn this to account as Prime Minister of the Common wealth of Australia, he has also invited some New Zealand Ministers of the Crown' to visit Australia. The subject is therefore practical politics of the present day. We have hitherto opposed Unification because we know that the' Bulletin crowd wanted it as a prelimin'ary to Republicanism, but that danger can be fought under Unification better than under State dissidence and wastefulness. The logic of events compelled New Zealand to adopt her present unified form of government, and Australia is rapid ly marching in the same direction. The approaching completion of the Federal capital at Canberra, makes the way easy for Unification. We only need our statesmen 'to...

TOOLERN VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) During the week-end we had 24 points of rain, which were veiry wel come. On Friday Miss Hunter severed her connection with the Education Department, and the children, to mark their appreciation, presented her with a handsome silver cake basket. The presentation was 'made by the senior girl (Miss Sarah Scarff). The opening shoot of the Gun Club was held on Saturday, under pleasant weather conditions.

BULLENGAROOK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The residents here regret that Mr. T. .1H. Skene has let his Bullengarook estate, and is leaving the district. His departure will be a distinct loss to the community, as he is every where regarded as a white man. The young folks are going to have a social on Friday evening, March 5th, in aid of the picnic fund, proposed to be held on Easter Mon day. It is to be hoped the weather will be propitious, as we generally have a good crowd cohne to see us. Rain badly wanted. I have been wondering whether our Railway Committee is defunct, or only sleeping. The present is a good time to start another campaign, as: other matters are very quiet.
