All He Knows. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
AII He Knows. "'Girls is a queer kind of varmint, wrote the little boy at school who had been ordered to *rite an essay on -ei 1'flhf if; ttr vatytinethat has .their own way every time. Girls is of several thousand kinds, and sometimes one girl can be like severan: thousand other girls, if she wants yot to do anything. Girls is all alike one way-they are all like cats: If you rub 'em the right way of the hair they will pur and look sweet at you, but if you rub 'em the wrong way they'll claw yoiu S'long as you let a girl have her own way she's nice and sweet; but just cross her, and she'll spit at you worse nor a cat. Girlk is also like mules, they're headstrong. If a girl don't want to believe any thing, you can't make her.. If she knows it's so she won't say so. Girls is little women, if they're good; and if they ain't good then nor when they get big, they're vixens-that's what father said mamma was once, when she chased him round the kitchen with a 'red-hot poker, 'cause she was m...
MORAL TRIUMPHS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
MORAL TRIUMPHS. In floors or pavements upon whica some celebrated incident has beet enacted we often find small brass tab lets let into the wood or stone, stating: "On this spot Becket was murdered." I should like to see a similar tablet on the floor somewhere merely sayiug, "On this spot Mr. Phipps, of Margate, made a kind and tactful remark to his brother-in-law," or "On this spot MIr. Smithers, of 'The Palms,' Wimbledon. did not say something that. he felt very much inclined to." I urge, it short, that moral victories should have some commemoration.-Chesterton.

A LOCAL STRIKE. -o PAILING CARTERS " DOWN' TOOLS." Mr. W. Macdonald, of 'Iraral-= gon, has something like a dozei teams carting palings from Bulga. and Callignee .o the rai[lay sta tion at Traralgon. At the be.,m ning of the season he booked or ders for about 303,000 palings. O.wing to the pirolonged wet w a ther in the spring, the teams were late mi getting a start, and ul) to the present time Mr. Macdonalk has only delivered about a third of the orders. For some time there has been rumblings of discontent among thi carriers, and the culmination came on aSturda. last, when: one ol the teamsters intinmated in clear and precise terms that the who!e of tlih carriers had resolved to strike. un less they -were paia is per 100 more for carting . M1r. Macdonald refuse-I to ipay the rate demanded, and now all the teamsters have stoppled, It appears that a waggon witlg tour inci 'l'tyres can only carry about 1850 palings under the shire by-law, as the total load, including the weight ot the...

The Traralgon Butter Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
The Traralgon Butter Factory. The half-year's 'term ot the local butter factory 'closed on the 31st ult. It as expected that when the balance is struck a substantial margin will be shown. Under the present management the factory has undoubtedly been gaining ground. The.supply has increased, the factory has been economically managed, and Ithe margin of pro fit has improved, ana the position of the-?ompany's butter on the market has certainly not suffered. Thus it Vwill be seen that there is ample reason 'for the improved confidence of inilk suppliers in the factory. The position of the tac to-day as a commercial under taking is decidedly better than it was a few years ago. This is very gratifying to those people who provided Ithe capital to start he factory 23 years ago, and who have stuck to it ever since. * * r * * Hurried Motor Trip.

GORMANDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
GORMANDALE. ----o-- The recent thunderstorms have had th?e effect of replenishing the tanks for household purposes, anrl freshening Gthings $p generally. The maize crops, too, have benefitted by the rain, and at the same time some fires which thireatened to do damage have been checked. Mr. R. Redpath has had a 70 ton silo built on his farm. This has been fil!ed with over 60 loads ot cow grass, and other todder, which has been chaffed, and the whole seems to be maturmng. When it is stated that the bulk ot this has 'been taken off a piece ot land about 2 acres in extent it will give some idea of the value of morass lands for such crops. The silo was put up~by Mr. Munnrmerley, ot TraraIgon, and Is a creditable piece of work. Mr. iRedpath is to be congratulated upon his enter prise, and Ithe securing of such an ample supply 'of succulent fodder for winter feeding.

IMAGINATION IS WORTH CULTIVATING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
IMAGINATION IS WORTH CULTIVATING. The. man who can read easily an* Intelligently holds the ke) to all hu man knowledge. If he read with imagination aler his mind will be progressive. He will become more and more self reliant, and will become self-confident In result of his realisation of his im aginative powers. He will each day become more valu able to himself and to his employer because he is alert and receptive, and because imagination will permeate al his ideals,his thoughts and his activi ties. The man with imagination is equal to all emergencies, for when one way of accomplishing a desired result proves inefficient he will think of an other. . The imaginative gift broadens hib outlook and creates resourcefulness. * To the artist, the student, and the philosopher, the development of the Imaginative faculty is of the greatest value; but to the worker in the busi ness or mechanical world its value ih little less. The man who. has . ima7rinatlv strength never can be downed, for wh...

If you have then remember that if you don't ac; you will see some other fellow witl. a little more nerve than you get ahead and leave you wishing you had paid more attention to the promptings o! your mind. The head of a New York trantsporta tion company which does a great dea. of business with Europe bemoans the fact that he didn't take a trip to the rther side of the Atlantic ten years before he did. - His own words were: "If I hac known ten years ago what I know to day after making the journey, I woulk have made many thousand pounds more." Why didn't he go before. All the time he had it in his mind, but he hesi tated and hesitated; put it off unti: some other fellow got ahead of him and secured the profits he could have taken. "If you stand near a good thing," says Andrew Carnegie, "plunge well into it. Fear is old womanish; it has kept untold millions from making for tunes."

The Expense of Automobiles. With stealthy footsteps the burglars made their way into the business oflice of the merchant whose store they had just entered. Flashing a dark lantern around the room, they saw that the door of the safe was partly open. On a small table near the safe lay several documents. The burglars inspected them. One was a bill for automobli re pairs. Another was an ice bill. Both were receipted. "Pete," said one of the two men ia a hoarse whisper, "ther' hain't no us, lookin' at the other dockyments We're too sate!''

FOR THIRTY YEARS ONLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 3 February 1914
FOR'THIRTY YEARS ONLY. "When next you happen to rea; that seeds found in Egyptian mummy cases have been known to sprout and reproduce their kind, don't believe it,' asserts an authority. "The statement is absurd. "Careful experiments have always shown that few seeds retain their vi tality after ten or fifteen years, and that probably thirty years is the limit of vitality for the most vigorous kinds. The wonderful seeds from mummy cases, reported as having sprouted, are believed by many botanists to have been slyly put in for purposes of de ception."

WARRAGUL TELEPHONES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
WARRAGUL TE.EPHONEC. The " Gacztte" says the \Varra gut telephoe Ixchange is to be pre sided over by a lady. telephomnst, who is expected to arlve this w:c. The business at the local exchange has increased so rapidly that this move is rendered impe-a:ive. Con sidering that the postal staff had their multifarious duties to attend tb in sorting and despatching the mails, and the attendance to pub lie reqcluirements at the counter, the delays in making connections have been commendably few. Now, however, they will no doubt be eh mnated altogether. Miss. Duffy, of Trdralgon, is the lady telephomnst.
FARMERS AND LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
FARMERS Art LABOR. - o There are indications min the near future ot a big fight between the farners and graziers ot the unions. The umnions are attacking the farmers in various ways, namely, by the holding up of farm produce at the shipping ports and attempt ing to enforce the Rural Workers' log. In New Zealand the farm ers have signally beaten the wharf laborers' union, and at the pres.nt time there is trouble between the unions and 'the Farmers' and Set tiers' Association. and it may de velop into something big at any ment. The " stop work" meeting ot the whart laborers in Melbourne yesterday afternoon is said to have cffected the price of butter. If the farmers. are thoroughly roused there will be a bitter struggle.
HOTELKEEPERS AND WAITRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 6 February 1914
HOTELKEEPERS AND WAIT RESSES. 0o---- Much contention has been cau sea through,a clause mn the Fac tonries Act, of 1912, giving power to the Hotel Employees Board to fix alternative rates :n cases where employees received board and los gngs, partial board, or neither. It was also provided that where ever the board had exercises any one of these powers it constituted a pumnishable offence for any em ployer to charge any of .his em ployees for erther board or lodg ings. The hotet employees' beard has fixed a rate of 15s per week for mid-day waitresses, who can be employed only between 12 and 3 p.m. The rate was fixea as without board or lodgings. Cases have recently occurred where em ployers of mid-day waitresses have supplied them with meals after 3 p.m., and charged for them. The question having arisen whether the. employers were prevented under the Act from making such a charge, the Crown Solicitor was asked for an opinion. It was con tended by the employers that the mid-day waitres...
