HOME GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 5 April 1924

HOME GARDENING. By "-leather Jock." For tints in blue there is probably no flower surpassed by the delphinium. It is now time to sow the seed of this fine perennial, there being two reasons first, the seed of the delphinium is one which does not retain its vitality for any length of time; and second, if the plants do not get a good start before the heat leaves the soil they do not bloom to any extent the first year. Select a good friable soil that has had a fair mining of well decayed manure and a sprinkling over the top of newly slaked lime. It is probably best at this time of the season to force the seed along in boxes, and whenever the plant has formed two good rough leaves get it planted into its permanent quar ters before the soil begins to grow cold, so that the plants may be well estab lished before the colder weather sets in. Watch the seedlings for aphis or slugs; use dilute nicotine solutions freely. When the plants are once started out well in their permanent quarters slu...

THIE HUMAN TOUCH. A well-known business man was accompanied round the links by about the most shabbily dressed caddie he had ever seen. Touched by the boy's look of povefty, he gave him money to buy himself a new outfit. The lad tried to express his gratitude, but could not find suit able Words. "Oh, that's alright, my boy," said the other cheerfully. "Say nothing about it. Be a good lad, that's .all." But the caddie could not re strain himself any longer. "Please sir," he burst out at last, "p-please, sir, I'm sorry you're such a bad player." ALL I.-E REMEI?MBERIED. It was an assault and robbery case and the principal witness was the victim.

Row in a Billiard Saloon [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 5 April 1924

Row in a Billiard Saloon. A case that was remarkable for the interest it caused (judg ing by the attendance of the general public), and for the spirited exchanges between the prosecuting constable and the defending solicitor, was heard at the Sunshine Court on Thurs day week last. It was one in which Constable Davis proceeded against Roy Furzer and Harry Hands on a charge of offensive behaviour in a public place, to wit, a registered billiard saloon. Senior Constable Crothers pro secuted, and Mr Jones, of Mel bourne, appeared for defendants. Stephen John McCormack, pro prietor of a billiard saloon in East Crescent, stated that on the evening of the 1st March, at about 7.30 o'clock, he had occa sion to go across to the railway station for change. When he returned he noticed a crowd around the door of the shop in front of the salon. He went inside and noticed Hands and another man scuffling on the floor. They went outside and he closed the salon for the night. Mr Jones-Did you send fo...

Personality in Modern Journalism [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 5 April 1924

Personality in Modern Journalism By H. C. ADAMS Not infrequently one hears the re mark, "Bah! I never buy a paper; there's nothing in them." This may be, to a great extent, true, according to the expectant requirements of the person evincing the remark, but if we could all separately order the paper to be compiled accordingly we should each read over again what we already knew. Apart from this, however, one may contend that what we spend great time and care over, i.e., the moral conventionalities ne ctssary for the elementary training of our children, especially in regard to exclusion, is paraded before the eye of whoever may desire irrespec tive of age. Of this I do not attack vehemently, but merely use it as an instance in' depicting what I call coarseness of selection. There iq also the direct antithesis of this, which, to passionate truth searchers, is con sidered equally bad, viz., dogmatic re ligious censoring. It may be that our v;ewpoint is not, in the correct juxta position...

The Skipper's Oath [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 5 April 1924

The Skipper's Oath By Cyril H. Buckingham. You may think I'm not speaking the truth, sir, And my story is only a fake; BIut my mother she told me in youth, sir, To speak the truth for Truth's sake. I remember how well she did scold me, One day when she proved me a liar; And all for my benefit told me, When I died I'd be put in hell-fire. Well, sir, 'twas the good ship Medusa, The best ever christened by spray: That I shipped on as one of its crew, sir, To sail on a trip to Bombay. ?lly shipmates were all as good seamen As ever sat down to a mess; But the skipper he was a fair demon, And often did drink to excess. And he had quite a habit of saying Many thkiIgs that he didn't quite mean; And though sometimes you'd hear him praying More often his words were obscene. He would swear by a mildewy onion; He would stake a round oath on the cat, And at times by his grandmother's blinibn, That he'd guzzle the sea in his hat. Well, to cut up a short story long, sir, We sot sail and made prett...

He expressed his surprise in noting that many of the Canadian farmers had abandoned their tractors. He in quired the reason, and the general reply was that the upkeep had been too great. In Canada the tractor costs much less in the first instance tha.n it does in Australia, The repair parts, are also much less costly. The fuel is decidedly cheaper, and the general nature of Canadian condition. much less severe on a tractor than our, Australian conditions. Those far mers in Canada to-day, notwith standing the very great advantaged they have over the Australian trac. tor user, have pronounced their eco nomic failure on the farm.
