GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

GIPPSLAND AND ITS PROSPECTS. It would bo idle to assert, tliat at the moment of writing the prospect. of this favored province of Victoria are particularly bright; indeed, that could be scarcely said of any portion of Victoria. On the other hand, there i;: not the slightest cause for assum ing that there is about to ( n: u-> a sea son of stress, tor the lvseiirei"- of the district are undeniably Bre.il, nnd matters, even taking recent events which may affect the markets into consideration, are very much better than tliev were during the iirst few '.Mouihs of the year. The copious rains of .Inly have had a most beneficial ('f f"ct upon both agricultural and pas toral matters, the crops are forward, and a supply of grass for our own re quirements is assured. One of the most pleasing signs of prosperity is to bo found in noting the vast increase in the sheop-growing in dustry. Time was when sheep were almost anathema throughout the length and breadth of Gippsland; but now the sheep ...

LINK OK WAKSIlll'S I'OURTKKX [ Mll.KS LONG. YOItSHIKi: "WKKKI.Y I'OST," .H I,Y 25tti. The climax of the amazing naval display in the Solent was readied on Monday, when the King inspected liis vast Fleet at Spithead. Never before had a Monarch o£ this or any other country led forth such a for midable and inspiring Armada. The weather was worthy of the occasion, though at daybreak rain was falling, and threatening clouds gave little hope of the brilliant sunshine which later flooded the gorgeous scene. The King, in tlie uniform of an Admiral of the Fleet, and the Prince of Wales, in his naval lieutenant's uniform, were on the Iloyal yacht as it left Portsmouth, attended by the Firequeen and the Trinity yacht Irene. The Iloyal yacht moored close to the flagship Iron Duke, and, later, the First Lord' of the Admiral ty (Mr, Winston Churchill) and other Lords of the Admiralty and the Commander-in-Chief at Ports mouth (Sir Hedwortli Meux) went out from the harbor in the Admiralty yacht Enc...

Not Right Yet. Two inmates o£ a Scotch asylum working: in the garden decided on an attempt to escape. Watching thoir opportunity when their keeper was absent, they approached the wall. "Noo, bend down, Sandy," said Lho one, "and I'll climb up your shouther to the top, and then I'll gie ye a hand up tae."

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. CHAPTER XXIII. A Glfmpte of the Gsms. The thing was done, the boats were burnt, the Rubicon was crossed. There had been a conspiracy to deprive Herepath of the fruits of his toil, ancl jf be wore to get nothing he would see to it that the plotters were in no better case. He no longer doubted the existence of the conspiracy. It I had been amply proved when ho found Daniel Harley in his workshop. In bitterness of spirit and the heat of the. moment he had defied the father of tho girl whom be had hoped to make, his wife. Evidently the man was.a criminal; Indeed his mysterious life ii£ the strange riverside house pointed to that. Some day the police would lay hands on him and a great scandal would result. What was to become of Enid then? Herepath groaned as he thought of it. In or dinary circumstances it would not have much mattered. His love for Enid was a pure and...

Valedictory. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

-Valedictory. On Friday evening last a very pleasant time was spent at the resi dence of Mr. Gilbert Brown, Deep Creek, by a large number of friends who had assembled to say farewell to Mr. Jas. Middleton and family, prior to their departure fr»m the district, where they have resided for many years. Mr. Middleton has leased his property in Foster and is about to reside in the metropolis, and as a mark cf appreciation of the many good qualities the departing guests possessed, several of their staunch friends met and decided to tender the family a social evening. The fact of Mr. Middleton having at all times rendered valuable assis tance In- connection with any social movement in and around the district has gained for him a large circle of friends and this could not bo allow ed to pass.without some recognition. The evening was so arranged that all who attended were able to par ticipate in the amusement, for sing ing, reciting, and dancing wore the main proceedings, until an interval w...

Dollar. A public meeting, to consider the question of raising u local Patriotic Fund, convened by the local head teacher, was held in the Mechanics' Institute last. Friday evening, lltli inst. Mr Jas. Brooks was voted to the c' air. ' Milford was well and capably represented by Messrs Jas. Crooks, F. Charlton, S. Nichols and J. Hardbottle (the Milford school committee), while the Dollar school committee was also present. The general reeling of everybody present was that something must be done to help the Empire, only it was a question of the best way and means. The head teacher of the school ex plained that whatever public action wr.s taken he would still carry on the State school Patriotic Fund, chiefly on account of the children's sakes, but s*ill he hoped that the district as a whole would also" rise to the occasion and make a grand effort to join the rest of Australia In aiding those requiring assistance r.s a result of the war.

THTC IMtlTjTj CLASS. The drill class (which moots bj woekly, at the Mechanics' Hall), has wonderfully Improved under the aegis of Its drill-master, Mr. C. H. Smith (now resigned from the posi tion. on account of his leaving the district). A. casual loiterer in the precincts of the institute can readily recognise that the trainees have now acquired quite a rhythmic, martial tread, halting abruptly at the stac cato word of command. But, up to the present, they have been appar- I ently too diffident to show them-, selves to the admiring public gaze. Possibly this bashfulness will pre sently be overcome. j

UNIFORMITY OF TYPE. Some Suggestions for Its Attainment. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 24 September 1914

UNIFORMITY OF TYPE. Some Suggestions lor Ita Attainment. One of the greatest advantages of raising pure-brei stock is, 01 bhould be, the resultant uniformity of type, si;:e and production exhibited by the Hoc"; or herd in the course of % few ycr.ru (writes U.O.D.). Since all the -individuals are of Bimi'ar size, pro ■ hir I ivrness, habits, constitution, and inpetites, t.lie general care and man agement are very much simplified. Considering this, it is remarkable that a great many of our herds can be classed us r miscellaneous .■o!he:;on of pure-breds, representing • •irious types more or le=s useful; 'i.r whole presenting a weird en: ^loiiieratiou. Perhaps half-a-dozen in iividual.s are of outstanding merit, Hid the balance "tails oft" to some .iii:iK for below mediocrity. The cause of this is usually to be true, d to poor judgment in selecting •he foundation stock when the herd v;:u, fating got together. A number .•f females are purchased, possibly because the purchaser relied too...

In this connection, thanks are d':? to the Melbourne visitors, Mesdamos Mansfield and vtakiston," who not only most gener ously gave their services gratuitous ly, but, in addition, with the assis tance of Mrs. Boyd, contributed the whole of the programme. The audience was not slow to appreciate o'ther their ability or their disinter estedness. Among the items call ing for notice were the duets, "In : Jesus," and "Who Could it Be?"; also "The Lord is My Shepherd," and "Come Unto me" by Mesdames IJ'akiston and Mansfield respectively. The latter lady finely rendered, as a recitatioi), the grand blank verse of "The Leper;" the pathos and despair in the anguished cry, "Unclean!
