The Great Goat Race. LABOR DAY SPORTS, KILCUNDA, ENTRIES REVIEWED BY NO. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 January 1915
The Great Goat Race. LABOR DAY SPORTS, KILCUNDA, ENTRIES REVIEWED BY NO. 9". The inclusion of a Goat Race in the L Labor Day sports' programme at Kilcunda was viewed at first with dis pleasure by many residents of Won thaggi, and I fully expected to see a burst of indignant correspondence in the columns of the "Express" from Liberal or Pro Bono Publico, What Oh, and Mother of Ten. Bad enough to have your tagosaste hedge trimmed by wandering horses and cattle in the night time without introducing a greater nuisance in the shape of the vile-smelling billy-goat into our t:>wn. As no protest has been forthcoming I assume that goat-racing must be a popular and exhilarating pastime, and judging by the number of entries re ceived a capital . day's sport in that direction may be anticipated. Having received a list of entries and handicaps , from Mr J, E. Goldsmith, sports' secre- ! | tary, a few remarks on the pedigrees and performances of the various con testants would be of interest an...

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 January 1915
FOE WOMEN (By "Ambrosirta.".) A Homo paper gives an amusing ac count of»how enterta'ning Belgians adds to the social status. To have only one Belgian in- ypur_ hose is to invite a condescending pity, buf the family that has two or three, though pleaded, must, on the other h.-ind, look with rcs pect on. those others that can boast of their six or seven. Not ponnds in the bank, but Belgians- in the drawing room or kitchen, places you as a house holder, to be looked up to in England now . We hope no one. with deceit ful pride, boasts of more Belgians than hci possesses. There must be a tem tation. Billeted soldiers, again, give rise to arrogance. Tho soldiers also, even j[f mot intellectual themselves, have an intellectualising effect. One English woman confesses that she has felt compelled to throw away her novels and fill up her spare time by studying history since they camo. - Not to study war maps again, seems, .under . the circumstances', terrible inertia. Was it not R. L. Stevens...
CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 January 1915
CHANCE. Despite the maxims taught us in child hood, ciiauce is an important factor in human affairs. A man's success or failure ma}' depend upon his happening to be in a particular place at a particu lar moment, or in catching a certain train or in missing it. Some people will read this paragraph, others will not. Those who do read it will acquire infor mation which others will be without. I.ife is a tragedy of circumstances. -Many people suffer from common ail ments, such as rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indiges tion, biliousness, jaupdice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone or bladder troubles, who do not know that their suffering may be due to the retention in the system of uric and biliary poisons. Inefficient action of.the kidneys and liver causes such retention. During the past thirty-five years treat ment of the disorders named, by Warner's Safe Cure has proved eminently success ful, simply because Warner's Sa...
A NOVEL RUDDER INDICATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 January 1915
A NOVEL RUDDER INDICATOR. A rudder indicator is now made which indicates the positon of a rud der at night without the use of any light in the wheel-house. The device is made entirely of bronze and is at tached to the steering wheel. An arrow' travelling over a dial indicates the exact position of the rudder, swing- I ing as it does with the rudder, so that j tho position of the rudder may be seen instantly in daylight. At nijrht the. scale remains dark if the rudder is , amidship. If the rudder is to port, a red light 'Humiliates a ' translucent shield, thus notifying the helmsman immediately of the general position of the rudder, while tho arrow gives the exact angular direction. If the rud der is to starboard, the shield glows green. In no instance is any bright light shown to interfere with or ob scure the wheelman's'vision,' which is tlie, case wherever » ligbt is turned on in the* whoelhouse'. 2

It has long been the custom of the trustees of the San Remo ceme tery to allow cattle the right of grazing there. The community does not unanimously approve of the practice and there are other parts of Australia in which differ ences of opinion on the subject exist. The Gundagai (N.S W.) paper writes :-" All is grist that comes to the mill over at Denili quin. The cemetery trustees there have given permission to graze cattle and horses within the hal lowed grounds, and at night time "Roany". the milker lies heavy on the grave of Pat.

SOMETHING'S GOING TO HAPPEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 29 January 1915
SOMETHING'S G.OING TO HAPPEN A man in a, furious passion rushed up to the advertisment counter of a [ certain newspaper office the other day. "That's what I am going to give him," he began, bringing down a heavy hunting crop on the counter with a crash. "Where is he?" 'Beg pardon sir,' said the clerk, "any thing I can do for you?" "Yes, there is somethingyou can do." roared the stranger. "You can in troduce me to the idiot "who stuck that in your paper." "That" was a notice under the head 01 "Marriages." "Do you see that, sir? John Jen kins and Sarah Smith are not married sir, and never intend to be. It's a hoax, sir-a miserabla hoax." "Really, sir/' said the clerk, "if there's a mistake, we're exceedingly sorry. We do our best to avoid this sort of thing, but when Mr Soft brought that notice in he said-" "So Soft brought it did he?" inter rupted the man with the hunting crop. "That's all I wanted to know. Good morning." I On reaching the door he turned back. "Take that notice out b...
