COULTER'S CRITERION DRA MATIC COMPANY. Mr. W. J. Coulter's well-known dra matic company paid a return visit to Trafalgar last Saturday, and appeared in the mechanics' institute during the evening in a powerful drama entitled "In Mighty London," There was a very large audience, the house being crowded, and the performance ran smoothly from beginning to end. "In Mighty London" is a drama abound ing in stirring and exciting incidents, and is probably one of Sims' greatest productions. Mr. Coulter bas an ex cellent company of experienced actors and actresses the latter in particular being high up in their profession. Every act of the play held the house spell-bound from start to finish, and the hearty applause bestowed on the performers afforded ample testimony both as to their undoubted ability and of the genuine appreciation of the audience. On Monday evening the company presented the popular mili tarj* drama, "The Bugle Call," in an equally creditable manner, but owing to the incleme...

WHICH WAS RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
WHICH WAS EIGHT. There lived in Germany a little girl named Elsie. She had many brothers, and with one of them she used to play from morning to night. . There was one field of grain in which the children took a great interest. They watched it© growth carefully, but in spite of them the sparrows would eat the seed. " I'm going- to~-stay here all day in the field'fo frighten away the birds," said Elsie. "I can do better," said William. "I shall make a scarecrow, and then we shall keep the birds away witfb no trouble to ourselves." "My way is best," Elsie said. &lt; "My way is best," 'said her brother, stubbornly. "Elsie got a rattle, and settled her self in the shade of some trees on the edge of the field. She rattled vigor* ously for a long time, and no bird dared come near. Then the wann aia made her drowsy, and before she knew it sho was fast asleep.. What a fine feast the sparrows had then, to be sure! William laughed at Elsie's efforts, and made his scarecrow. It was a te...

BLACK AND WHITE. nestling the whitest. But a 'white cat that had four kittgns, of which. three were white and the fourth was black, gave the' first place in her affections to Sooty. Once they were all brought into the drawing-room to be " shown off." Besides the humans, the room contained a .great Newfoundland dog. Hitherto cat and dog had been on friendly terms, but now pussy shewed much anxiety lest' the dog might harm her black pei especially. At last she seized it by the neck, and bore it beneath the lowest piece of furniture, where the dog could not possibly crawl; but she mewed to the others to follow her as best they could. The black kitten owed all this care to its colour-f-more happy in this respect than the black sheep, which is said to be in every flock.
THE VALUE OF ADVERTISING. ORDERS FROM A LOFTY SPHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
THE VALUE OF ADVERTISING. ORDERS FROM A LOFTY SPHERE. The "Times" of Tuesday says that Mr. G. Brown, blacksmith, of Trafal gar, has received an order for iron chimneys from a person in far-off Budgeree; and it is hinted that the said person probably saw G. B.'sadvt. in the columns of the "Times." Well, we don't know where Budgeree is lo cated, but we remember the incident of the late C. E. Parson-Politician Jones and the "savagesof Bungar&e," in the neighborhood of Golden Ballarat. We can t say for certain that the News circulates in the wOds of eithar Budgeree or Bungaree, but we do'' know that it is read by the inhabitants of far-distant lands, as the following incident shows:—About a fortnight ago we received a note from Clement i Wragg, the astronomer, in which he stated that on the evening previous to writing he was making asuTvey of the' moon through one of his 100*ton spy glasses, when he was surprised to see the man who inhabits that far-away land gesticulating and b...
HONOR VERSUS LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 21 April 1904
HONOR VERSUS LAW. At Yarragon recently one young man, apparently without any justifica tion, started a quarrel with, another, 1 and eventually called him by one of the most vile and opprobrious names that one man could possibly use to another—a name which not only con veyed the idea that he was an unfit ; companion for decent society, but, worse still, which, reflected seriously on his parents. Instantly the insulted man planted a well-directed blow on the face of his slanderer, which sent him. sprawling to the floor. A fight followed, in which the aggressor was severely handled, and which resulted in both combatants appearing before the court on a charge of unlawful as sault. In placing both men on the same footing thebench doubtless acted according to law, but most people will think that it affords another proof of the truthfulness of the saying that "the law,s a hass." It is not within the power of man to make and enforce laws to control nature in matters of this kind, and no man...
