Fed by a Shepherd's Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Fed by a Shepherd's Dog. One morning a Scottish shepherd went to inspect his flock among the Grnropion Hills. ITis little boy of four years old accompanied, him. A mist began to rise, and the shep herd hurried on, leaving his little boy at , n spot where lie Fa id he would return to him. The fopr grew denser, and some time passed before tho shepherd hud rounded his flock. When ho returned to look for his child, he could not find him. Ho called long and loud, but there was no answer. Then he himself lost his way, and not till the moon rosp : was ho able to truce his way. home. ^Tli'c llttlo boy had not ? re turned,' 'anil * all tho next day his parents searched in vain.

The Express, PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY FRIDAY, FEB. 6, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

Cbe (Stress, PUUl.lSlLKU KVICKY K1UDAY Fit I DAY, FER. 6, 1914. The railway construction policy of the Liberal Party as outline! by the Premier in the House on Wednesday is h generous and vigorous one. A sum of £640,000 is to be expended mutually. Railway stock is to be brought as rapidly as possible up to the mark, so that the farmer may get his wheat to the market under the most favorable conditions. How big the outlay is likely to be, may be judged from the fact that on tarpaulins, an item on which (he city man would hardly waste a thought, no less than £20,000 is to bt expended. Mr Lang pon complained that at present much grain comes uncovered, but of that there will soon be an end. Fortunately the old system under which much of the money expended in railway construction was simply throwu away has passed. Tn the days of the boom, lines were run to any point where vote") were to be secured. Now the Railways Standing Com mittee inquires carefully into each demand for a railway. Th...

LIFE'S HANDICAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

LIFE'S HANDICAPS. It li a terrible thing to go through life with chained ability, conscious of powers that cannot be used to advan tage. To make the most of ourselves, wo mist cut off whatever drains vitality -physical or moral-and stop all tiio waste of life. We must cut oft every thing which causes friction, or which ends to make our efforts weaker or :o lower the Ideal and drag down the ife standards-everything which tends :o kill the ambition, or to make us satisfied with mediocrity. Multitudes of people, enslaved by bad physical habits, are unable to get their best selves into their work. They ire kept back by a leakage of energy und vital force, through bad habits ->r dissipation. Some are hindered by little pecull iritles of disposition, by stubbornness, slovenliness, meanness, revengeful rioss. jealousy or envy. These are all fian3Icaps. Many people go through life galled !>y their chains, without making any ?serious, continuous effort to emanct pate themselves.

HANDS DENOTE THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

HANDS DENOTE THE AGE. You may talk about wrinkles on i lie face, but a person's age can be ascertained from the marks on his or her hands. Hands show the ravages ot time as much as any other part of ihe body. Scientists attest the fact, and the hands of celebrated beauties prove the theory beyond argument. Between the ages of seventeen arid eighteen the hand develops into the maturity of beauty and symmetry. Un til nearly thirty, the band, If subjected to rigid care, practically remains un changed. At thirty an almost Imperceptible change begins, and despite constant attention, the beauty wanes. The skin wrinkles and grows dry, the joints trow shapeless and enlarged. The shrinking of the flesh displays the, faults which the plumpness of youth bad covered up. The fingers are no longer nimble, and the muscles begin to stiffen with Increasing age. When tiie muscles respond tardily to the order's of the brain the first warning o' departing youth is sounded.

WASTE LANDS ON FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

WASTE LANDS ON FARMS. 4 If farmers generally were as cure less with their money as tliey are with their money's worth, then the amount , of interest would not be worth worrying over. Look at farms of good land that have a selling value of £20 to £30 per acre and it will be found that there are portions that are bringing in but a fractional part of what should be returned, and are not paying current interest on a capital value of twenty shillings an acre instead of £20. On many im proved and old-fashioned farms there are areas that were at one time soft boggy swamps, but for jears past the swamps have been comparatively drv, yet no effort is made to rid tile surface of the rushes or the big tus socks. In the eyes of the owners the swamps are still swamps, although for years the surface has not held ; water. | There is another source of loss in production on agricultural [arms, and this is the amount of ground that is made unprofitable by reason of stack bottoms. Straw and hay stacks ...
