Temperance Notes. (Contributed) [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 13 March 1914

Temperance Notes. (Contributed) The late Professor Drummond tells the Btory of a man who was a glass cutter. He had been a confirmed drunkard, but for years had been a total abstainer. A decanrer that had contained brandy was brought to him to out; a little Quid remained and ran oat. The devil tempted him. There was no look to Cbrisb for deliveranoe ; he tasted it, his blood fired, and the end of him was as bad cr worse than the beginning. Lieutenant Padsche, a German military officer, who has travelled ex tensively in tropical Africa, says he never found alcohol necessary for any other purpose than the preservation of iDsecs. Abstainers become more easily acclimatised, suffer less from heat and thirst, and throw off infec tion bettpr, while they are more likely to be in a condition to give | attention to tb,e impressions apd pro- j blems of exploration. i

The Origin of the Name "Kitchener." [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 13 March 1914

The Origin of the Name " Kitchener." A seoond series of portraits and bio graphies in the March Windsor Magi zine snpplements a previous article, which arroused great interest, under the title of''Perpetuated Personalities," being a survey of the diverse reasons for which the nam" of an individual has survived a life time as the name of some objocb or custom originated by him. The classification of the different reasons for such survivals brings out many curious points of interest ranging from Plato to Joe Miller and Mrs Bl- omer, the American lady who first in modern times, advocated the subsi tntion of the trouser for the skirt in women's a1 tire. Writing of Dr Kit chener the chronicler says :— " Domestio are the associations of the word! ' kitchener,' applied to the familar cooking-stove, but not, strangely enongh, from any connection with the kitchen. It is called after the famous epicure and eccentric charaoter, Dr William Kitchener, whose dinners were one of the curiosities of...

KATAMATITE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 13 March 1914

KATAMATITE. During the past few weeks many changes have taken place in and around this district. Amongst others are Mr. S. Cornford and Mr. R. Spaul, who for over 30 years have made Katamatite their trading centre. In one case a handsome presentation was offered, but it was declined. Their departure will   be a distinct loss to the town and dis- trict. Mr. and Mrs. Cornford, like Mr. and Miss Spaul, intend taking matters as easy as possible. The former have taken up their abode in Numurkah, while Mr. Spaul will reside near the metropolis. Miss Spaul is contemplat- ing a trip to Europe. The coursing club held its annual meeting at Lease's hotel on Wednesday last. The balance sheet showed a credit, and the club, which paid away nearly £100 during the year, was re- formed. The following office bearers were elected :—President, Mr. Lease (re- elected); vice Presidents, Messrs. Fores- tal and J. Eddy ; secretary and trea- surer, Mr. S.

NATHALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 13 March 1914

NATHALIA. A very nasty accident occurred to Mr. W. Brown, son of Mr. J. Brown, at Ko- tupna on Wednesday of last week. He was driving a young cow, and had occasion to dismount from the horse he was riding. Something startled the latter, which wheeled round and kicked Mr. Brown over the eye, making an ugly and dangerous wound and necessitating treatment by Dr. Keyes. The following have been appointed a committee for the Nathalia school :— Mesdames P. Silling, P. Wheller, Messrs.   P. W. Brown, R. Muir, H. Tobias and G. Grinter. With deep regret we announce the death of Mr. E. Hutchinson, which took place on Thursday last. The deceased had been unwell for some time, and the best medical skill was obtained. He was 58 years of age, and was very highly thought of in the district. He was well known as an ardent sportsman, particu- larly on the coursing field. For many years he acted as judge for the Natlialia club, and very often acted for the clubs throughout this and neighb...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 20 March 1914

EDITORIAL, In answer to a question which has reached me concerning SAINT PA1 - l-ICK. I may state that 'hough this great Missionary is not canonised by our branch of the Chore'-, we shou'd revere the mem ory of one. wh", by his boldness and Saintly life, captured a great many souls to the Faith The Patron Saint of Ire land was also her apostle. At a time when the Gospel had been practically driven by the heathen from England, and .when the few Christians who remained vere forced to take refuge in the fast nesses of Wales, there were still rays of light coming from Ireland and Scotland In those uncivilised Drnidical times Ire land was called the Holy Island, and when Christianised, th- Isle of Saints St Patrick was born in Scotland about 372 Taken prisoner as a ohi'd by some heathen robbers, he was carried to Ire land, where he remained in captivity six years. The desire to return good for evil by preaching the Gospel to his captors was strongly embedded in hie heart. After returning...

NATHALIA A. AND P. SOCIETY AND THE PRESS. To the Editor. Sir,—On Saturday last, March 14th, I journeyed to Nathalia to attend the annual meeting of the Nathalia Agricul tural Society, and as President of the shire received a hearty welcome from all members. There was a lot of business done -t the meeting, including appoint ment of President, vice-Preaident, Sec retary, etc., after which there were many toasts proposed and responded. I watched ihe mail on Tuesday evening for the Nathalia "Herald," but alas (as usual) there was not one word in that Journal for or against the Nathalia A. and P. Society. I think, Mr Editor, in all fairness to the Nathalia A and P. Society, also the district, some report should have appeared. If it was that a certain candidate was not selected as secretary to the society, then I thiDk it is playing the game a bit low, as when over 120 members from all corners of the district for twenty miles around attended the meeting, I think in all fairness the meetiu...
