CORRESPONDENCE. COUNTRY SOCIALS. To the Editor of the News. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

CORRESPONDENCE. COUNTRY SOCIALS. To the Editor of the News. Sib-While fully "" agreeing with j most of the remarks of your previous correspondents on country dances, I would like to say a few words on be half of the young men of Trafalgar the dancing portion, at all events. I have attended several public dances during my residence in Trafalgar, and have never seen any unruly conduct in the room nor had my dress damaged by rough usage, both of which ex periences I have gone through in other country'places. Neither have I ever had any difficulty in gettine partuers, and I have always thoroughly enjoyed myself. When refreshments have forpied a part of the entertainment I have always found plenty ox gentlemen ready to attend to my wants. As re gards the M.C., it is generally admitt ed that, wliere possible, his services are better dispensed with, but in small places like this, where there is usually a sprinkling of beginners, this is impossible. I'm afraid "Cocoanut" was rather severe i...

STONE BY STONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

STONE BY STONE. Tom and Robert were walking through the woods. They came to & stream of water; both stopped, delib- .' erating what was best to be done. "I am going to leap it," said Tom. "I am going to work my way over* stone by stone," said the more pru dent Robert. Tom leaped, and missing his foot* ing, fell into the middle ot the stream, whilst Robert, working his way care fully from one stone to another, land* ed safe and dry on the other side. Boys, learn the lesson while yet young; the shortest way often appears the longest. Do not try to leap across the stream of difficulties that separ ates you from the shores of success. Perseverance, diligence and determin ation are all stones cast across the stream of life. A leap will bring you down among them, wounded and bruised. But, conquer them, stone by 1 stone, and ultimately you will reacn the other shore-the coveted land of success. Remember, do not leap; work your way across the stream | stone by stone.

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

' Household Hints. Always keep cheese well covered in a cheese-dish, or it will become dry I and'tasteless. If the cheese is wrap I ped in a cloth moistened with vinegar it will keep nice and moist and retain | its flavor longer. Remember to sweep the carpets the way of the nap; to brush the-other way is to brush the dust in. Attend to all stains as soon afl possible. If left they soak into the carpet and are very difficult to remove. Carpets in rooms which are very seldom used are apt to be attacked by moths. Salt sprinkled round the edges and well under the carpet be fore it is put down will generally pre vent their ravages. Plenty of light and air should oe admitted into the rooms, as moths f&vor close, dark places. Use a clean firebrick instead of the ordinary iro'nstand, and you 'will re tain the heat of the iron much longer. The usual ironstand not only admits the air to the bottom of the iron, but it conducts the beat from it. The brick, being a non-conductor of heat,...

A Chess-Town. The village of StrfTebeck rtnPrus»»*n Saxony is unique in its deV^tiou to the game of ohess. Acoording- to tra dition, a Wendish prince, imprison 'ho, in turn, imparted their know ledge to the other villagers. The tow er in which the prince was confined is still standing, and is called the "Sohachturm," or chess-tower. However this may be, it is certain that the Stroebeckers, men and wom en, and children, have for ages been iowned for chess-playing. Instead struction in chess now forms part of the regular education of children. At the close of eaoh school year, a chess examination or tourney is held under the supervision of the school, and town authorities, and six prises are awarded to the-best players-^-three for boys and three for giTls. The prizes are all alike, each consisting of a chess-board inscribed "reward of dili gence," which is 'forthwith installed in the place of honor in the "best room" at; home, to inspire younger brothers and sisters with pride, envy, ...

FISK JUBILEE SINGERS. A NOTABLE MUSICAL EVENT FOR TRAFALGAR. ON TUESDAY NEXT, 3rd MAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

I FISK JUBILEE SINGERS. A NOTABLE MUSICAL EVENT FOR TRAFALGAR. ON TUESDAY NEXT, 3rd MAY. An exchange thus refers to a recent performance of the company: The J uhilee Singers are old friends, for they have now been before the Australian public for many years, but they never pall on the musical palate, and their quaint old negro choruses are as pleas ing to-day a3 when beard several years i ago. The voices blend barmouiously, I there is a vigor in the singing, a dis . tinctness of enunciation, and a due at tention to the lights and shade of the , melodies they present, which numbers wbo appear on the public platform would do well to emulate. In the jubilee choruses there was no strain ing after effect, and however much one's ear might at times be offended at what appeared to be harsh passages it was completely effaced through the tone and the heartiness of the singers, and the listeners became absorbed in the enthusias characterising the per formers, and which formed so promin ent a p...

The Lazy Man. WANTED A LAW FOR LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

The Lazy Man. , WANTED A LAW FOR LAZINESS. I The crving need is a law for the cur© of laziness, a law which shall give power to the authorities to detain the bully who lives upon the earnings of the weaker sex; the loafer who lives in public-houses, or upon the keri stone outside; the tramp who fre quents the same casual wards; the able-bodied pauper who will not work; ! the unemployable who have never I learned to work; and the budding I gaol-bird who has been nurtured upon truancy. That truancy is the outcome of laziness and the forerunner of'crime is an established fact; that want of self-restraint, which is a virtue un taught at school, contributes very largely to the increasing tendency to wards laziness is admitted. And when the growth of truancy, the decline of moral teaching, and the shirking of parental responsibility are taken into consideration, we can hardly wonder that the growth of the army of laziness keeps pace."

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Messrs. Mathieson and Davis will hold their next ordinary monthly cattle Bale at Trafalgar on Saturday, 14tb May: A large yarding of mixed stock ib expected, as usual, and buyers will be present from Melbourne, Sale, and all parts of Gippsland. Mr. Nicholas, chemist, Trafalgar, has secured a long lease of a block of land near the post office, and intends erect ing new business premises shortly. The site is an excellent one for, busi ness purposes, and the change of loca tion will doubtless make a great difference to Mr/Nicholas' "casual" trade. Two centuries ago thetfe was in Eng land a tax imposed on bachelors above the-age of twenty-five; -the rate vary--, ing from £1^10s. on Dukes, to Is. on humble persons. The tax lasted 'from 1695 to 1706. Again, in 1785, bache lors (Roman Catholic priests excepted) ? were subjected to an extra tax on their servants. . J We are glad to learn that Mr. A. Harris is most sanguine as to the' i-e iuU of the forthcoming election. ...

CHAPTER X. HARTWELL BEGINS TO "UPROOT." [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

CHAPTER X. HARTWELL BEGINS TO "UPROOT." It was near five p.m., Hartwell's day's work was over,, and he was standing with his back to the fire, and his elbows stuck up on the man telpiece of his private room in his Fenchurch street offices. It was now, the third week since he had come in to that wonderful kingdom of his, which he owed to the mere chance of passing at a certain hour along a cer . tain place of the Norwich road. All, so far, had gone well, but his two, "nasal wrinkles" w«re somewhat more i deeply marked than before; there was' a wrinkle or two more at the eye corners, adding meaning and history > to that smile of his eyes; and a look ' of care was among the furrows of that brow, from which the hair stood up a little and fell back in tufts, without j . any parting. [ The fact was, that Hartwell's nights ; were not peaceful; he had impres- , sions, dreams, that were as real to him as anything which he saw or handled during his waking hours; there was a face which migh...

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) THE SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 28 April 1904

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) THE SETTLEMENT. The beneficial effects of the late rains are being felt throughout the V settlement. The grass is everywhere looking well, ploughing is proceeding on many holdings, and there is now a good supply of water for all purposes. There has been a good deal of talk on the settlement lately over the re moval of the State school to a site near the Seven-Mile-bridge. It is con tended by those in favor of the pro posal that not only would the school be more central, but it would be more convenient for a large majority of the children attending it. Most of the ptfpils, it is said, come from the east side of the Seven-Mile road, and it is held that if the school were located near the bridge, and extra accomoda tion provided, there would be no ne cessity forthe erection of a new school between the Seven Mile road and Moe, on that portion of the swamp known as the new settlement. The atten dance at the school shows a substan tial increase la...
