Established 1895. A Farmers Paper, published in the in- terests of the rural community. Every Friday, one penny. FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 20. 1914. The Druids have decided that this year the proceeds of their gala art union and bazaar shall be devoted exclusively to a charity whose benefits are strictly reserved for the helpless poor who are inflicted with incurable diseases, namely the Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, which provides accommodation for 230 inmates and is, with one exception, the largest medical charity in the State, the cost of maintenance annually being over £11,500. Such an object, whose noble work, in addition to relieving the worst form of human suffering, is a permanent safe- guard of public health, they feel confi- dent cannot but meet with sympathy and approval, and they therefore rely upon generous support and co-operation in the task before them. There is no shar- per sting in the pathos of the Austin than in cases where strength fights hard. Greater agony there ma...

Should Australian Girls Read Novels? [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 27 March 1914

Should Australian Girls Read Novels ? Next to Amerioa. the Australian publio as a whole—workers, middle-class, and well-to-Jo—oonsumes a greater quantity of reading matter per year than any other people under the nun. So nays a writer in the March issue of "Everyiady's Jour nal." Analysing further, the writer etaW that the Australian girl, compared with her English sister, haB a remarkably wide knowledge, if not of literature, at least of books And it is on the quality of these books, and the question of whether the quantity should be limited, that this artiole turns. The question was put to a number of leading public men, and these are, in effect, some of the re plies received :— The Hon. P. M. Glynn, Minister for External Affairs, thinks that girle should be kept away from books that obtrude, in a fetching garb, the Beamy side of life, but that Mil erature like that of Soott, where a healthy mind reSectB itself on very page, is the atimulant required for the developing mind.

Numurkah "Agricultural Society ANNUAL MEETING TO MORROW. The annual meeting of the Namur kab Agricultural and Pastoral Aseooi ation will be held in the Shire Hall to-morrow (Saturday) nffcernoon, For some years'* the society, it has to be admitted, has been "going back" from a fi-'»ncia! standpoint, but jast why his is so is haru to discover. Of course, reasons in p'enfcy can te given by the man in the ftrt eb, whose favorite com plaint is that the society is "run by a clique," the members of which are •• a narrow-minded crowd." No good re suit could follow the di=onssion of this charge here ; the place appointed is at the annual meeting, and if this " nar row-minded clique" stands in the way of progress, those making the charge —if they be in earnest and are nob simply ecde .voring to find Bn excuse for not supporting the society as they should)—wl 1 attend and by their votes c^st in'o i he onter darkness all who are retarding the society's advance.
