He did not expect a large'attendance, as the tncetmng was called so that he could discuss the question with the farmers residing close in to Traralgon and Traralgon West. Mr. O'Connell opened the dis cusslon bystating that he propo sed to say something about rab bit destruction, but was disappoin ted that so few had attended. He said the rabbit was one of the most destructive pests the world haa seen. Some 12 months ago he called a meetming of farmers at 'aralfgon, with the idea Eof stlrrng up the farmers to the gravity ot the rabbit invasion, but he was only partially successful. Many of the landowners were sitting down doing nothing. They did not reahlse the danger.

WHAT IS PLUCK? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 February 1914
WHAT IS PLUCKT Pluck has been defined in a great 'ariety of ways. Here are a few ot them: Silent endurance coupled with cheei ful energy. The power a man has to say "no' when he knows his wife wants him to say "yes." 'Pluck is that spirit in man which fails to understand the meaning of de spair. Fearlessness free from foolhard) ness. The heart of a.lion In the body of a man. The best remedy for despair. The force which converts an ordin. ary man into a hcrn. HIonest darlner withnlut caring. The indom:iahle "I will," before which the mountains of fear becomr niole-hills. The offsprin'r of courage and 'the mother of success. Bottledr energy. opened by the cork screw of emergency.
THE LEVYING OF BLACKMAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 February 1914
'HE LEVYINU OF BLACKMAIL. Some years ago a novel and nuccess Li swindle was brought to light by • he Paris police. The person implica. ted hit upon an ingenious plan of work. ing upon the guilty consciences of his fellow-creatures. With the aid of Botr tin's Paris Directory he selected a number of' vwell-known men of busi. ness, and addressed to each of them a note to the following effect:-"I will reveal all unless you send a hundred francs to J.L.. Poste Restante, Paris." It appears that more than ten persons actually sent the money demanded Information was given to the police, and the man was arrested on appear ing at the post-office to claim a batch of letters. Th!s recalls the story of a certaiti ' ? lshop ,;f 3odor and Man A-frlc.,: rf the bishop's, who .was much given to practical joking, sent him a tele gram, saying: "All is discovered; fly at once." Of course it was only a J Dke, but when the bishop received the .elegram he took the next train for Southampton, and hei has ne...
MONEY GRUBBING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 February 1914
MONEY GRUBBING. Wealth is not necessarily to be do spised, and when it is employed to supply the needs and alleviate the sut fering of the world's poorer children it is purified and ennobled. But the man who strenuously strives to gain money-continually thinks of its ex sits solely to pursue it-is the ,jiiman who loses all finer sensibilities, denies .himself all true enjoyment, degrades his soul and places a barrier in the pathway of his true life. Happiness dloes not always go hand in hand withD riches, and the most joyful hearts are rreq'lently those that beat beneath the shabbiest clothing.
A WIFE'S ALLOWANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 February 1914
A WIFE'S ALLOWANCE. If men could only realise the re luctance of most women to ask their husbands for money they would make their wives some allowance, and let them do with it as they pleased without scolding ani causing unneces sary trouble if they frittered it away, nor commending if they spent it wise ly, but just letting them use It as free ly and as unquestioned as they them selves feel privileged to do when it Is a question of spending their money. Many marriages vould be happier if husbands could have this polnt ,'resented to them In the proper way'
ATHLETIC TO THE LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 10 February 1914
ATHLETIC TO THE LAST, . A medical man, who is also an ath. lete, scoffs at the idea.that there is anyv age at which, a man should give up his favorite sport. "'it is true," he said, "that there comes a time when the amount of en ergy employed has to be'limited, but it is a mistake to give up a sport alto gether. Some of the world's finest dthletes are men past middle-age. "So long as we keep active Nature will respond by keeping us physically it. It is when we voluntarily surren der some form of exercise that we grow rusty and-our powers fail. The body one day, in spite of all our efforts, will become incapable, b-t why should we hasten the period of helplessness by needlessly withdrawing from active sports? Let us be athletic to *he lat."

Smith, organiser for the Vict, rnan Decentralisation League, lectured at Londoi House, Melbourne, on Decentralhsation and City Interests Ait the butset Mr.~iSmith referred to the fact that a commission was sitting to consider how to bolster up city industries; whereas there was re cally a greater need for nm 'quiry into shrinkage of the num ber of primary producers nm ,the State, If this were undertaken, and the problem satistactoriy. dealt with, there would be no need to worry about the condition of our secondary industries. They would be mn no need for help. The city could not be permanently prosper ous unless the number and the prosperity of the primary producer increasea. Therefore, decentraih sation affected city interests as well as those of the country. .
