AN ERRING HEART;. The following conversation once took place between two Quakers: "Martha, does thee love me?" asked a Quaker youth of one at whose shrinri his heart's holiest feelings had been offered up. "Why,- Seth" answered she, "we are oommanded to love one .nother, are we nobP" "Ah Martha, but does thee legard me wiih the feeling the world calls love?" "I hardly know what so tell thee. Seth.

PEOPLES OF THE PAST. Interesting Researches in Peru. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
PEOPLES OF THE PASt. Interesting Researches In Peru. A scientific gentleman, whole life ,work has been cast in fascinating places for one with a bent of serious thought, is Dr. F. W, Volnlmann, who off and on for the past five years hras been engaged in archaeological re search ir perun That country is fa vored among achaeologists because what is known of its fascinating his. tory opens up illimitable fields for sci0 entiflo speculation,- and no man can do research work there for five years on end without becoming known to the world of serious thought. Some of the evidence of Dr. Vollmann's ar duous toil are to be found to-day in the Peabody Museum, Boston, in Mun ich, Germany, the Carnegie Museum at Pittsburg, and the Field Museum at Chicago, and not a few of the Pe ruvian contributions made through Dr. Gaffron. to the Natural History Nruseum of New-York were discov. ed by Dr. Vollmann.

The Passing of the Poser [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
The Passing of the Poser Tl'here are no poaers on the grand scale now. Our musicians have short hair and" play golf. Authors cannot be distinguished from ordinary men. Art students are abandoning their amazing clothes. Even' poets have given up poetical looks, and instead of writing pretty fancies worry us with poems of the: outspoken natural school. Music is in tweeds, literature is in navy blue, and poetry is in a bowler hat. Apparently there is no chance of any return of affectation. The world becomes more natural every day, and every hour some neglected pose dies a natural death. There are no startling and picturesque figures. -'rhe glittering Whistler was the last e5 the artistic masters of pose, the last man win to spend an hour before a oking-ass, the last man-to use his own word-who could be called "?.ialzing. ' .For now it is bad form to be amazing, and everyond is ex pected to be as insignificant as pos sible. The only affectation 1 ft is the affectation of being natural. ...
TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemington.") .Some speculation is now being indu:ged in with regard to the appointmenst ot a successor to M'r. S. Griffiths us the stipendiary stewards' "team." \urious fiames are mentioned, but applica tions have been called for the question in due course in the proper way. It will not, liowever, do any harm to say that there is a feeling that the position should be given to a man from one ct tile other States. At present Mr. Davis represents this State, and Mr. Ellis South Australial and it is sug gested that to balance things evenly the vacancy now to be filled should go to an applicant from say, New South Wales. Not that Vittoria could not supply a suitable candidate. One coul easily ilame several in Melbourne alone. But this is not the point. To mI view, it would, for certain reasons, b': more satisfactory to have men front wide distances apart on the board. Imported horses have gone up to what may be termed "boomn" prices in the lastS year or so. Values havi...

WHAT MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
?VL?IAT MAN1JR. )E. Tlie p"ob.eh. w;ll rtquire a separate working uuS for each class of soils. Roighliy, we may thus divide our soils and their requirements:- First. the clays, delicient in limestone. These soils niee)carbonate of lime, and are benefited by phosphorus andti maiTres. They rarely call for potassium. Seconil, clays having enodgh carbonate of lime already in their composition. These are our natural grass lands and are easiest made to grow good grasses. They respond to applications of phos phorus and sprinkhlngs of manures. In our climate we use up humnus' faster than they do in England and so an: sort of vegetable matter laid over the land is of great use, even to feed corn stalks and let them lie to decay will help grass on these heavy clays: On these limestone clays phosphorus and nitrogen are the dceficient elements, but if the phosphorus is supplied common ly clovers will come in, or may be.in vited in, and will supply the nitrogen. Here one ould use basic slag if o...

TENNIS. CHRIST CHURCH V. AVENEL. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
TENNIS. CHROIST C]IURCH V. AVENEL.. A tennis rmatch between these two clubs can always be exgected to provide a keen contest. as the teams are generally so well matched that neither side can succeed in scoring a decided victory over the other, and up to date the laurels have been evenly divided. These rivals again met-in friendly combat on Saturday last, and as the "cores denote, the result w;s in doubt right up to the finish, when the Se.mour visitors were in the lead by six games. In the four gent's doubles Avenel had the advautage by two ganies, but got to leeward when they pitted Mr Mooney and Miss Gadd against Messrs Parkin and Gill. Miss Gadd l played an excellent game, but opposed to such an experienced player as Mr Parkin, such a result was only tobe expected. The fol lowing are the scores : Messrs Worland and Powling beat Messrs Mooney and Gadd - 12-9 Messrs Parkin and Gill beat Messrs Mooney and Gadd 12- Mesers Parkin and Gill lost to Messrs M aud-J.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Specisl Correspondenot.) Something like an American inva sion has taken place in this city. At tihe theatres, most of the "turLns" are supplied by people from that country; ragtimo has taken possessison of the homes, and the public places where mu sic is made; and the millioiaire-con duloted baseball players have been loom ing large, not only as exponents of the game that is to the .American what football is to the Australian; but as the lions of sooial and civic circles. But like the motor racing that was recently similarly "boosted," baseball failed to arouse any enthusiasm, and if the ob et of bringing a big party of players. who are-said to receive annual "re tainers" running into many thousands of dollars, to this country, was, as al leged, simply td promote understanding, of and interest in the game, the men behind the movement are due for a lot of disappointment. Plenty of pople went to see the games on the first da??. rirey were dertainly.rewarded ...
ASSOCIATION MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
ASSOCIATION MATCHES. On Saturday (to-morrow) the district competition for the trophy presented by Messrs .Alfred & Co., jewellers, Seymour, will commence. Great interest is evinced in the matches. so much so, that the game promises to outrival the great win ter pasttime-football-in public favor. Broadford is generally locked upon as having the best chance, although their recent defeat by Sugarloaf Creek. has made this forecast somewhat doubtful. Avenel and Tallarook will also take a lot of beating. each team being composed of old and experienced players: At present the three Seymour. clubs seem to be out of the running. Thie. Railways have been considerably weakened by tlhe loss of their two best players, : while the Seymour (town) members have.had no prac tice owing to the new courts not being completed. Christ Church have a good 'quartette'- but have no emergencies.. Neveirtheless, each club is hopeful,'and intend making a big bid for the coveted shield. The following are ...

,The Man Who is Left In the breedinlg from poorer stock ,n a land from which thu best have hen sent forth we find an efficient cause #of the poverty and weakness in. the London slums, and in the hope lessness of the poor throughout Eng land. Men who would have risen and banished their own poverty have been in a large degree destroyed; whereas the weakling has been rejected from her armies. Thbir defects spoil them as soldiers, and they are kept as-par onts.

Seymour Gun Club. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
Seymour Gun Club. An interesting day's shooting was afforded by the competition for the gold medal presented . by. the Se. mour Gull Club on Saturdiiy last. After an exciting contest the will-n. ner turned up in Mr Leslie Kerris, of Northw6od, who, though only a beginner ill trap shooting, put up a remarkably good performance, and showed much skill and nerve agaimst his older opponents after having tied at the end of the first five birds. Dunstone went out at the sixth, M'Intosh at the seventh, and both Nelson and Kerris missed their ninth, the latter scoring the next shot,. whilo Nelson irdssed. The medihl has to be wofi three times before it. can be claimed, so that Kerris, should he maintain his form, looks a likely winner. Sweeps of five birds each were won during the afternoon by P. Nelson and J. Hawkins. and Haw kins and D. M'Ivor divided one. The shooting was as follows: Clubi 1st 2ud 3rdil Medal S'p Sp S'p L. Kerris 8 3 - - Nelson 7 5 2 3 M'Intosh . 5 4. 2- . 3 H.

The Worst Cook. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
The Worst Cook. Not only are Englishwomen thLe worst cooks; they are the nmost ex travagant cooks. They actually Ie. lieve that there must be a certain am ount of waste in cookery. The duat. bins of London are mute witnesss t_ the wicked and shameless waste that goes on in our kitohens. Sometimes as I pass along tile street and look at them in the early morning I wonder that an angry God does not visit us with pestilence as a punishment for exhibitions of mouldy bread, sour po tatoes, ends of meat and fish in the0 reeptacles. Two persona - one ot tlhem doing the cooking in a tasteful, economic manner, coan have the dain. tiest, most delicious and nourishing food in great variety on 10/ a week in London, even 'with the present high prices. It ,takes thought, it takes care, it takes common sense, and takes time. These are thugs thi average Englishwoman refuses to give to-her preparation of food, and therefore a woman of many gifts and girocs in other directions, she is the worst cook ...

HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 23 January 1914
HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. So many talents are wastecif, so many enthusiasms turned to smoke, so many lives spoiled for want of little pa tienoe and endurance, for .want of un derstanding and laying to heart the meaning of "the present"--for want of recognising that it is not the greatness or the littleness of the duty nearest hand, but the spirit in which one does it, which makes cone's doing noble sr meanl I can't think how people, who have any natural ambition, and any sense of power in them, escape go. ing mad in a world like this, without the recognition of that. I know I was very near mad when I found it out for myself (as one has to find out for oneself everything that has to be any real practical use to one). Shall I tell you how it came into my bead? Perhaps it may be of comfort to you in similar moments of fatigue and disgust. I had gone. with my husband to live on a; little estate of peat bog, that had descended'to me all the way dowin from John Knox; the Covenanter, who ma...
