Success. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
Success. There is nothing so abject as the worship of mere success, unless, indeed, it be the worship of mere wealth. There is nothing lower than to admire and flatter a man simply because he has got on, because he has carried his point, because he has come to be talked about in the way in which he wished to be talked about, and to think scorn of others whose merits and efforts have been equal to his, or very likely much. greater, but whose merits and efforts have, from some cause or other, not been so lucky as his in gaining the object at which they almed,
Interest in Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
interest in Work. Interest in our work for its own sake is a cultivalable quality. We all possess it in some degree, and we mayall increase it if we will. Cnildren may be accustomed at a very early age to take pleasure in the suc ceas of their own effcrts, quite apart from any personal good they ma:y derive from it. The careful observer of child-nature will notice that this is a natural delight, and is desleoned nod and diminished only by the growth of sellish considerations. If care is taken to make work as congenial as possible, to prevent its being excessive a.d exhausting, and to sympathise with and encourage the natural jory of success, there is no reason why it should ever decrease. The youth who enters into a wellclhosen life-employment with this power of happlineEs and also with the power of self.government has every reason to hope that his work may be success ful anid his life valuable and happy. Pensoes who eagerly grasp new truths are very apt to drop oll ones entirely ou...

Willie's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
Wllioe's Wie. Willie's wife is a winsome thing, Full of engaging ways; And Willie's heart is ready to sing A canticle in her praise, She iI youthful and gay, and so Eager to wander to and fro, She seems to fancy an idle life Is best adapted to Willie's wife. Fvcry day, like an honest lad,. From early morn till late, Willie cheerfully toils to add To the wealth of iis pretty mate. Hard his labor, and small his gains, At which the little woman complains, Who ought to feel it the pride of her life That she was was chosen as Willie's wife. Willie is gentle, and kind and true, And not much given to roam, And does the very best he can do To add to the joys of home; But Willie's wife, it is sad to see, Is not the helpmate she ought to be, And Willie over his tasks must bend, To get enough money for her to spend. The little woman is laying up A store of grief and remorse, And sorrow will soon embitter her cup, Unless she changes her course ; For Willie may struggle to roll tup wealth, And h...

The Weird "Cobra" Jewel. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
The Weird "Cobra " Jewel. The natives of the jungle say some cobras carry precious stones about with them, and at night coil in the gra'a to watch them glitter. Professor ltcnuoldt, the Indian traveller, esays: "Ono night a native called me to sec this wonder. Close to the water's edge stood an immense tamarind tree, and within fity yards of it the coolie halted, and mysteriously pointed to the root of the tree. A foot from the trunk I observed in the grass a greenish light, apparently proceeding from a single point. Alter a time I could ase the cobra coiled near the foot of the tree, alow'y swaying its head to and fro in front of the shining object. Unfortunately, I ihad ino gun, and my guide, who seamed to feel that he was responsible for my safety, entreated me so earnestly to let the snake alone that I acceded. Moreover, he promised to bring me this atone within three days, The coolie kept his word, for the second morning after. wards he brought the atone, lie had climbed the ta...

Jakcy's Love Making. ---++-- Musio May be Love, but it Depends a Good Deal on the Tune. "It makes me dired, fodder, to hear de ole voman all day singing," remarked Jakey with a grunt. "Ah, mine son," remarked Dinklemen, "music is love. I like to hear your mudder sing." That was all that was said about music at the time, but Jakey still thought of it. " Music is love." Rosey, Jakey's sweetheart, was spending a week at Bay Beach. Rosey was riobh, and he wanted to marry her, but one of the thin go he found it impossible to do was to make love. " Fodder," he said, " I am going to Bay Beach to see Rosey. I think I know me now how to love make, and RIsey is rich--" " Good boy. Go in and win," advised the old fellow gleefully. Two days later Jakey came back. He sneaked into the house by the side entrance and crawled up to hib room unobserved, and shut the door after him. After a while his father discovered hbe was home.

Rat Killing Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
Rat-Killing Extraordlunary. A very good story is told of Adam Bepler, who used to keep a tavern. One rather gloomy evening, when Adam was in rather a gloomy humor-as he seldom was-a stranger presented himself about bed time, and asked to stay all night. " Cer'ainly," said Adam, eying the rather seedy-looking stranger. "If you take break fast, it will be youst three quarters." "But I have no money," said the man. "Ia'n dead broke. But if you will trust me-" "Ah," said MIr. Depler," I don't like that kind of customer. I could fill mine house every night mit dat kind ; but dat won't help me keep das house." " Well."said the stranger, after a pause, have you got any rats herel" "Yes," replied Adam, "you better believe we have. Why, the place is overrun mit dem." " Well," rejoined the man, I'll tell you what I'll do. If you letme have lodging and breakfast, I'll kill all your rats to morrow." "Done I" said Ilepler, who had long been desperately annoyed by the number of old Norways that i...
Other Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 April 1894
Other Lands. The Indian Scout.-The Apache scout is independent of circumstances. He trudges along unconcernedly in cold and rainy weather. He finds food, and pretty good food, too, where the Caucasian would starve. Knowing the habits of wild animals from his earliest youth, he can catch turkeys, quail, rabbits, doves, or field mice, and, perhaps, a prairie dog or two, which will ==«? him with meat. For some reason he cannot be induced to touch fish, and bacon or any other product of the hog is eaten only under duress ; but the flesh of a horse, mule, or jackass, which has dropped exhausted on the march and been left to die on the trail, is a delicious morsel which the Apache epicure seizes upon whenever possible. The stunted oak, growing on the mountain flanks, for. nishes acorns ; the Spanish bayonet, a fruit 'that, when roasted in the ashes of a camp fire, looks and tastes something like the banana. The whole region of southern Ari zona and northern Mexico is matted with varieties...

Present :-Messrs Bosisto (in the chair), Tucker, Blromlev, T. Murphy, M'IKeiie, Andrews, and Gralramn. The following evidence was taken : Fr'ederiek ,lames Young, president of the Rodney Shire, farmer and fruit grower, said thiTit the tariff was very heavy on agrieulturists, who had to sell in the open market and could not expect any protection. Consequently they wished to buy in thlt same open market. The so-called protective duties for the farmer were inoperative. Some articles, such as elothing, had risen 50 per cent. He objected to the stock tax, as it taxed the farmer's store beast. The stock tax had certainly not raised the price of cattle. but it mighlt possibly have pre vented it from going down. The rail way freights needed reducing, especially on fruit. 'The freight on apricots and peaches was 2dt. pe...
