SNAGGING THE LATROBE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 January 1914

SNAGGING THE LATROBE. At the council meeting on Wednes day (says the " Traralgon Record"), Cr Pettit said he had had a con versation with Mr Geo. Davis and Mr Phil. Heywood in regard to straighten ing and snagging the Latrobe River, and they asked him to bring it before the council to see whether something could not be done to help the landowners in regard to the continual damage they were subjected to by floods. Considering that the Government was responsible for the increased volume of water which came down the stream in flood time, by reason of its draiuage scheme at Moe Swamp, and seeing that the Government itself was proposing to snag the river from Rosedale to Sale, he thought they should try. and get the co-operation of other municipalities interested in an effort to see whether something could not be done to minimise the damage done by floods. If they approved of the suggestion, he would move a motion to that effect. The President (Cr Whittakers) said the suggestion was a wi...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in* jiirious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the • sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDEE AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Bo,not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT •from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and BO-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. V

MOE SPORTS. A RECORD SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 January 1914

MOE SPORTS. A RECORD SUCCESS. The annual sports meeting, under the auspices of the Loyal Narracan Lodge, M.U.I.O.O.F., took place on Wednesday last. Favourable weather was experienced, the warm sun being tempered by cool and refreshing breezes. The rain a day or so previous to the sports settled the dust, and caused the ground to be in perfect condition. It, also assisted to bring about the increased attendance, as many stated that, with the possibility of bush fires breaking out, they would not have felt tempted to journey any dis tance from their homes, and as a consequence would have been ab sent from the sports had the rain not come at an opportune time. However, there was a very fine muster—a gathering which included visitors from all parts of the dis trict. The events were all well j contested, and proved highly inte resting to the spectators. The pro gramme was got through expe ditiously, and—with the exception of a protest in connection with the underhand chop — from start t...

FOILED BY A FILM. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 January 1914

FOILED BY A FILM. By Harry Stone. George Gurney stood with bared head before a grave in the churchyard at Petersham. As he read and re-read the inscription on the tombstone, his thoughts flew back over a span of twenty-five years, to the great crisis in his life which had impelled him to leave his native country. The carven words faded, and before his mental gaze there arose a gracious vision—a dainty, girlish figure in grey, with clear, steady eyes, and. hair brushed back from a broad forehead. The sound of footsteps on the gravel path aroused him from his reverie. He looked up and stared spellbound at a girl who was coming towards him with a bunch of white flowers in her hands. "Helen!" he exclaimed, involuntar ily. The girl paused and looked inquir ingly at him. There was something appealing in his sad face, framed.ini shaggy iron-grey hair, and she came up to him with an unspoken question on her lips. . "I beg your pardon," he said, apolo getically. "I am afraid I am an intru de...

ST. MARY'S CHURCH, TRAFALGAR. The annual meeting of St Mary's Church, Trafalgar, was held in the Sunday School Hall on Wednesday, 14th inst. The balance-sheet and re port showed encouraging progress. The evening congregations reached a higher average than in any previous year, except the year 1910. The offer tories totalled 15 per cent, more than in 1912, though 1912 had been the previous high-water mark. The morn ing. congregations have also been larger than ever before, but this has been due to the larger number of children who have been attending. Additional interest waB imparted to the meeting owing to the impending departure of Mr T. P. Martin, who for some years has been Church Secretary. —The Rev. C. L. Crossley spoke in the highest terms of the work done by Mr Martin, and, on behalf of himself and the congregation, wished him God-speed.—Mr Martin, in a feeling response, said that it came as a wrench, to him to leave Trafalgar; he had learned to love the place and the people....

CHAPTER XXI. The Sunrise. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 21 January 1914

CHAPTER XXI. The Sunrise. The first glow of dawn Had just touched the eastern 6ky when Laura slipped out into the garden. She wanted to 'be alone in the great sym pathetic heart of Nature on this the rst morning of her greatest happi ness. All Nature was waking to this day of all days. In the orchard, aim Q&frtreee stood wbite with enow. blooms, and a stray daffodil put up Its fairy head to welcome her. But it was out into the open fields beyond that Laura went, where the great gum-trees and clumps of wattle, ' newly-crowned with their spring glory, had their way. She found a fallen log i and sat down to watch the sunrise. A 1 laimb bleated, a cow lowered in the ' distance, and. a thrush in a neighbor- | ing wattle echoed a plaintive sweet j note.

TRAIN UP A CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 January 1914

TRAIN UP A CHILD. Irresolution in dealing with child ren is fraught with dangerous possi bilities. For your own sake and the sake of the child be firm. Whatever you think proper to grant a child let it be granted at the first word, with out entreaty or prayer, and. above all, without making conditions. Grant if with pleasure, refuse with reluctance, but let your refusal be irrevocable; let no importunity shake resolution; let the word "No," when once pro nounced, be a wall of brass, which a ihild, after he or she has- tried his or tier strength against it half a dozen times, shall never more endeavor 1" . nhake.

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. GET 0UT1 YE LOVER-SNEERERs.. By an Optimist. The cheerless company of cackling croakers has got its knife flush into the modern young man. /' Unlike Caesar's wife, the poor chap is blameworthy in everything he does. If he dares to smile, the country is iro- , mediately going to the dogs; if he goes about with a long face, he is held i up as an awful example of the namby- , pambyism of the age. He is, in short, an encumberance upon the face of the i earth. Even his ambition, or Jack of ambi- \ tion, to marry is not sacred. If he | shows no signs of wishing to enter the bonds of matrimony, he is forth with denounced as a selfish brute, who is evading his moral and proper obligations to the State, and who should, therefore, be taxed. If, on the other hand, he falls in love with a girl, and wants to make her his wife, he is everlastingly told that he is an imbecile, and that he is on the high road to endangering, if not actu ally ruining his prospects in life.
