AS HORSE—SO BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

AS HORSE-SO BOY. it was a slippery day, and the horses drawing heavy loads over a little hill in a city street>were hard put to it to keep their footing. Their drivers, all ot' whom were merciful enough to halt them half-way up the ascent and let them catch their breath, differed widely in the means employed to start them again. "Get. up! Get up!" shouted one, plying his whip with every ex clamation. ''G'lang there!'' cried an other, confining the use of his whip to a menacing snap of the lash. The beasts responded with a brave struggle, sometimes successful, sometimes futile. But one teamster, leaving his whip in its socket, took his near horse by the In-idle and tugged at it with a cheery: ''Come on, now! Let's see what we ran do after our rest! " The effect on his team might have seemed magical to an observer out of reach of his voice. Signalling with their ears that they un derstood, both horses strained forward with real eag(fl'ness; clutching at the pavement with their poin...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

I MELBOURNE LETTER ' I (From our Special Correspondent.) The Greater Melbourne project in again in evidence. There have been so many threats of this unnecessary addition to the governing bodies of I he metropolis that fears of its actu ally being brought into existence should be hard to arouse. The pre sent scheme, from what can be learn ed, lias some features that commend it-such, for instance, as the con solidating of management of the street traffic facilities. But the good and Accessary things which it is 'planned' to do could be done without tiie creation of an unwieldy and un necessary body that in many other respects .would be providing a fifth wheel to the Local Government coach and a costly fifth wheel at that. There is £500 worth of damage to file furniture and fixtures at the Police Depot where the German in terned were until recently kept in comfort that would make many loyal citizens who ha£e been vainly seek ing'work for some months, think.they were 111 the lap. of lux...

TIME IS THE TEST. The test of time is what tells the tale. "A new broom sweeps clean," but will it "wear well" is what in terests most. The public soon find out when misrepresentations are made, and merit alone will stand the test of time. People appreciate merit, and years ago local people publicly en dorsed Doan's Backache Kidney Pills; they do so still. Would a man make the statement which follows unless convinced that the article was just as represented? A cure that lasts is the kind that every sufferer from kid ney ills is looking for. Mr. El.

In the second innings he took five wickets for 28 runs against North Wonthaggi, which shows that he has Dot lost his sting. I expect to see him do good work ogainst the M.O.C. team nexc week. Wallace came out with a creditable average in both innings, taking four for 27 and two for 10 respectively. He will have to be reckoned with in the next round. t Andrews showed that he has not lost his previous seasons form. Bowl ing right through the first innings he got the splendid avergge of five for 18 and one for 6 in the second innings. This is a highly satisfactory perform ance. Hollins is showing splendid form with the bat, he is one of the most consistent scorers we have. His 31 in in this match was a credit to himself and his team.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 February 1915

During the past few months (says the "Daily Chronicle") women m in creasing numbers have been practising rifle shooting. There have always been a few enthusiasts who have been among the most faithful members at both the outside ranges' in summer, and the inside ones in winter, l>ut various causes have conspired to ren der the sox in general apathetic m the matter. Oi\e of these has undoubtedly been the difficulty of learning. Most of the covered ranges are in towns, and as they have been got up by men for their own instruction and. amusement, women members are not included. For instance, in London, only two or three clubs admit women, andl then they are only allowed to slioot on special days. In consequence they have not been given mnnv opportunities to compete in matches] as the opposing team in all probability could not provide competi tion of their own sex to shoot against them. Thus- their prowess has not ? been encouraged by ambition, and tiie desire to excel. Xow. however, ...
