The Korong Vale Lance. —AND—NORTH WESTERN ADVERTISER. "Nec temere, nec timide." SATURDAY, JANUARY 3, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

Tl\e Korong Yale Lance. — AND — NOUTH WESTISUN ADVEUTlSfiU. "Ncc tomcru, ncc tirald&." SATURDAY, JANUARY 3, 19X4. Copies of the "Lance" may be obtained from Mr T. J. Bohan, Main Street, Korong Vale, who will also rcceive advertisements. The holidays passed off very quietly in the Vale. There were no sports of any kind in the district, and many of the towns people spent their holidays on the river trying to tempt the finny tribe to bite at the wrig gling worm and other tempting bait, but there are no reports of any big hauls. A number paid a visit to distant friends and in other cases many quietly staved at - home entertaining relatives and friends who took advantage of the holidays for a re-union. On New Year's day there was an exodus to Bendigo and other large centres where sports were held, and all are how settling down to another year's toil. Mr W. H. Leech, of Woosang, farmer, who died on September 19, left under a will dated Feb ruary 10, 1905, real estate valued of £4,...

Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

.Gyclirca anil Motor Notes, E. A. Pearson, the well known N.S.W. long-distance road rider and holder of the Sydney-Mel bourne road record of 49 hours, is a great believer in the three speed gear. Pearson considers it the greatest cycling invention since the advent of the Dunlop pneumatic'tyre in 1888. In his great ride from Sydney to Mel bourne, Pearson rode every hill, and everyone who has travelled the overland route knows what that means. What surprises this great road rider, and also many other prominent road men, is that the variable speed has not caught on in this country to the extent it should. Pearson thinks that the trouble is that most riders who have tried them have not learnt how to use them properly and to the best advan tage. There is too much ten dency to switch into the .lowest gear as soon as an up grade is seen, and then pedal oneself right out, trying to maintain the same pace as has been obtained with the normal gear, or too liberally using the highest gear with...

ARE THE CHILDREN OVER EDUCATED? How milch easier la It to find fault than to give a hint or two that will provo helpful In tho dlfllcult occupa tion of training tho child mind. The young mind: of a child learns when it id Interested or amused.

' MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KKOV/H. . Concerning some parts of this exten sive district news comes liut seldom. This is not entirely our fault ; we have no miraculous power of knowing what is happening at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places.

[?]00 WILL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

■ -20 v::.LL KK0WNT0 HfiED AN "AD." V; . 0 J This idea that you have lived so long in town iliat everybody knows you and you c'on't need to advertise is a mistake. This vsry indifference to advertising, indificience to doing business as it is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or inaM order houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his scction, and keep them convinced that his store is the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail order house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible, but he can keep an advertisement in Stis local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new baigains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, antf send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a-singl< country newspaper in the State, with a ge...

WHAT A LETTER MEANT. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

WHAT A LETTER MEANT.. "i am sorry for X.," a friend re-, marked to me the other day of an ac quaintance who had met with a dis aster. "A good fellow. Got a lot o£ excellent qualities. He deserved to succeed. Poor chap! I hope he'll pull through all right." "Did you write to him?" I asked. "Write? Good gracious, no! What could I do? Nothing—absolutely no thing. Why, J-ietween ourselves, I'm having a hard time of it myself" But he wrote later, and a few days afterwards I met X. . . . "Had a fearful time!" he remarked dismally. "But there'B been one thing about it that has helped mo to bear it—it's shown me' I have friends I never dreamt of. I had an awfully kind letter from G. Things like that hearten a fellow up. It does one good to know other folk wish one well. It's a kind of testimonial. It came just at the right time, I can tell you. My wife, poor girl! It made her quite happy."

CHRISTMAS WISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

CHRISTMAS WISHES. To wish you n merry Christmas! What a wealth ot memory and magic lies behind this phrase! And how helpful it can be to all of us. I had an acquaintance once—happily now lost to sight, for he waa one of those unfortunate people it is a distinct gain to lose—whose great boast was that lie cared not a rap whether anybody cared for him or not. ' Needless to say, he was unpopular. He was not the kind of man whose bicycle tyre anyone rushed to blow up for him, or the man who got an umbrella readily lent to him on a wet day. Nobody wished him any particular good luck; and one of my acquaintances, I know, to whom he volunteered the infoi'ma tion that he did not value his appro val, actually went out'of his way one night, it being winter-time, to lie in ambush and inflict serious damage on his top-hat. But generally we left him alone. We simply did not worry him with our ' friendship if we saw the neighbor's hens or cows in his garden, or if he walked about with a chalk-mar...

A PROTEST FROM A TILLER OF GARDEN SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

A Protest from a Tiller or Garden Soil. Dear Minstrel,—Now that a prise hit been awarded for an Australia* National song the poetic disease seem* to be spreading. I must admit having been seized by a spasm of this sort and send herewith some thrilling verses composed chiefly in the interest of the man on the land, &nd especially well back, who figuratively carries Austra lia oirhiB back, ar.d in return gets very little attention, excepting in the way " of taxation.. Unlike the prize poet, I have not made any splashy use of tha sun, but have applied it evenly, which is more the natural habit of the Aus tralian luminary. If the man on the land should not consider this worth one hundred "quid", the humble poet— when meeting any of his admirers, or failing this any whom it interests—near a place of liquid refreshment, will be pleased to "join" when kindly requested to do so. I must warn our. "gentle readers about one line in my song where I have placed brackets, or otherwise the...

Scott's Epitaph and its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 3 January 1914

Scctt's Epitaph and its -Origin. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the January "Life" which is just to hand, is a photo graph and an explanation of the origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorial cross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Captain Scott was leaving for the South Pole Dr Alexander Leeper, Warden of Trinity College, Mel bourne, gave him as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which he wrote the concluding lines from Tennyson's Ulysses: "To strive, to seek, to find, but not to yield." The little volume was discovered in the tent with Captain Scott, and the members of the search party, considering the lines a most appropriate epi taph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this excellent number are : " 1 h2 Greatest business on earth " in which Frcdcrick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how Science has robbed war of its romance ; Mr Carlyle Smythe's di scrip! ion of Max O...
