BACCHUS MARSH BOWLING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
BACCHUS MARSH BOWLING CLUB. The Sunshine Bowling Club again visited Bacchus Marsh on Saturday last. The green was very dry and worn, owing to the water supply being cut off, and therefore accur· ate play was out of the question. The visitors won by 21. The ladies supplied a sumptuous afternoon tea in the pavilion. 4t the close of the match Mr. RH.H. Dugdale (Presi dent) made a few remarks on be half of Bacchus Marsh Club, and Mr. Richards, on behalf of Sunshine, responded, and complimented the lady players on their play. After the match, the visitors were entertained at dinner, very well sup plied by Mr. F. R. Manning, of Royal hotel. Mr. Diugdale (Presi dent) and Mr. W. Williams, B.A., proposed thle Sunshine club, which was responded to by Messrs. Fair child and McWhirter. Mr. Richards also said a few words, and' said it was noticeable when visiting the Marsh the friendly feeling of the people they met, which was a con trast to the stiffness or coolness of city folk. He also said t...
THE Mystery of the Ravenspurs (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
THE sllier Dof the lalBvensilrs By FRED, M. WHIT-. Author of "The Ends of Justice," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) - CHAPTER XXIII.-Continued. "I admit it," she said.' "They get on one's clothes and sting for pure mischief. And I am a sight after a bee has been operating upon me. If I had my own way, there would be a :fire here some- day, and.· thensthere would be no more bees." They trooped into breakfast, dispu ting the point cheerfully. It was im possible to be downcast on so perfect 'a morning. Even the elders had dis carded their gloom. Ralph Ravenspur mildly astonished everybody by re lating an Eastern experience apropos of bees. "But they were not like these," he concluded. "They were big black bees and their honey is poisonous. It is gathered from noxious swamp flowers and, of course, it is only intended for their own food. Even those bees-" The speaker paused, as if conscious that he was talking too much. He proceeded with his breakfast slowly. "Go on," said Marion. "I am inte...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
THE Historical Society of Victoria exists only in name, as nothing is heard of its labours. The history of parishes and of local bodies would be interesting. We got a little, and tried to get more from N.S.W.; but was 'told that all records had been sent to Victoria. The Titles OflMce must have some early'plans, but Shire boundaries had a haphazard origin. They were mostly laid off by prospective Sec retaries, and have been bamboozled since. Messrs.

HOW TO KILL AND BLEED POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
HOW TO KILL AND BLEED POULTRY. SThe American Governmint recom mends the following rules for kill ing fowls: Grasp the 'chicken, when killing, by the bony part of the skull. Do not let the fingers touch the neck. Make a small cut with a small, sharp-pointed knife on the right side' of the roof of the chic ken's mouth, just where the bones of the skull end. Brain for dry picking by thrusting the knife through the groove which rimuns along the middle line of the roof of the mouth until it touches the skull midway between the eyes. Use a knife which is not more than 2 inches long, ¼ inch wide, with a thin, flat lhandle, a sharp point, and a straight cutting edge. At least 300/% of all the poultry coming into the market is incom pletely bled. Much of it is so badly bled that it results in .a loss as com pared with the corresponding poul try which is well bled and in good order. Aside from the bad appear ance, incompletely bled chickens have very inferior keeping proper ties. The flesh lo...
LAUNDRY WRINKLES (Alice Margaret Ashton.) [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
LAUNDRY WRINKLES (Alice Margaret Ashton.) Sometimes it ,is just -thd little ag gravating details that make a dif ficult or unpleasant task almost un bearable. Washing day is a hard time for most women, so it pay s.to consider some of the smaller items involved in the process of washing. Better even than a clothes-pin apron I like my grape-basket pin holder, with a wire twisted through the handle to form a hook. " This hook is slipped over the clothesline, and the basket is easily pushed ahead of the worker, while the pins are so much easier to grasp than, from a bag or apron. A cart for..conveying the clothes basket to the line ought to be -in cluded in every washing'equipment. Even if it is only a very crude homemade affair, it will save so much' heavy lifting and that con stant stooping which makes hanging out the clothes so tiresome a task after long bending .over the washtub. A great saving of time can be effected during the warm months by sprinkling the clothes before remov ing...
THE FAITHFUL COW'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
THE FAITHFUL COW'S LAMENT. Ah me! is life worth living, do you think ? It is the grave belief of one now up on the brink That it is not. Here am I, once a well-fed cow That knew no care, no trouble; but -look at me now! I forage, forage all the time, at least I did so once; But now there's nothing to be found, I'm not quite such a dunce; My strength must be conserved (what little there is left): N·o longer can 'I tramp all day on roads of feed bereft. I hear them talking every eve about the Belgian fund; At first the sadd'ning tales they told would leave me nearly stunned! How men and women, children too, had neither homes nor food It made us bovines chew our cud in contemplativy mood. We heard them say 'mid milk pails din that funds were pouring in, From kind hearts trying to atone for one big nation's sin, But that the biggest sums were only drops in that vast sea' Of want and woe caused by a ruth less soldiery. Poor Belgians! I can sympathise-I drop a friendly tear, You're short ...

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from a "junior medico.": Egypt, Feb. 28th. This afternoon we paid our respects .to the citadel and mosques. We decided at first to go by tram but finding a garry that would take us to Cairo for 6/ (30 piastres) we decided to go this way. I took several photos. on the way in, and I hope :tlhey will prove a success. We managed on the way in to get the garry man to drive us to the citadel and back for another 4/, which made the whole trip 10/. The mosques at the citadel are won derful places, and one could never tire examining all there is to see. It is truly wonderful. We, of course, had to put slippers on before we were allowed into the mosque, and a finer building I have never seen, and probably never see again. You go into first a great courtyard, solid marble floor, in the centre of which is a large fountain of alabaster, where the natives wash themselves before praying, and I have no doubt they need it. From there you go into the mosque prdper, and when y...
