GETTING RICH. How Some Famous Men Have Saved. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 16 January 1915
GETTING RICH. How Some Famous Men Have Saved. Nearly all men who have risen to fame and riches through commerce or trade have been thrifty men, at all events in their youth.: Take, for in stance,. the case of Sir Thomas Lip ton, who saved sufficient out of the paltry pittance of half-a-crown a week he earned as errand -boy in a Glasgow store to enable him to take passage on a tramp steamer to America. Here he worked like a slave on a Carolina ,sugar plantation, and in New York and elsewhere, enduring hardships the full story of which has never been told-but saving, always saving. Then when he had scraped together a.capi tal of £100 he returned to Glasgow and opened his first shop. Even then, however, his passion for being thrifty did not cease. In order to avoid pay ing rent .for a bedroom he used to sleep under the counter in the back shop, and at night, after putting up the shutters, he would dress his win dows. John D. Rocksfeller, the world's richest man, lived for months as a l...

"Strange that anyone should come at this time of night," he said. "No, Gordon, I will go. There- can be no danger, for this is ,tangible." :He piassed along th alls and pas sages till he came to .ie outer oak. He let down the portcullis. "Come into the light,'" he cried, "and let me see who you are." -A halting, shuffling step advanced, and presently the gleam of the hall lantern shone upon the face of a man whose features were strangely seamed and scarred. It seemed as if the whole of his visage had been scored and carved in criss-cross lines until not one inch of uncontaminated flesh re mained. His eyes were closed; he came for ward with fumbling, outstretched. .hands, as if searching for some fa miliar object. The features were ex pressionless, but this might have been the result of...

IT is a legal maxim that for every. wrong there is . remedy, but the selection of the remedy is a matter for the administrators of the law to determine. That is why case law has to be read with statute law. There have not been any Local Government cases since the Coun try Roads Board Act became law, but when there is we venture to say that our view will be found correct, that the Board has power without responsibility, and the Shire Councils responsibility with out power. This opinion is con firmed by the Board throwing upon Councils the responsibility of let ting contracts and carrying them out, simply advancing the money. The Board is really what was called in Ireland a gombeen man. The whole position, is a weakness of Victorian legislation, of which there are numerous examples- shunting upon irresponsible Boards duties which should, be discharged by a Minister of the Crown. Bacchus Marsh Shire has temporarily got out of the difficulty with the Pyrete bridge, but there is another ...

WITH THE MUTTON BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 16 January 1915
WITH THE MUTTON BIRDS. (By. R.L,) At. the extreme south-east point or corner of Phillip Island., about ,two miles from the mainland and the :,township of. San Remo, rises above.the .sea :a bluff or hill of sand, from which..the eye: .can look across *the bosom of the sea for miles, and take in its infinite power and end: less glory, is to be found. one of the most interesting and fascinating studies of bird life, as well as an easy and profitable business for those engaged in tile fin and feather trade. This hill or bluff of sand is part ially covered with stunted bracken fern, and a species of hard sword grass, which readily cuts the flesh whenever it becomes antagonistic. It is on this sandy rise, beneath the fern and sword-grass roots, that the mutton birds come every spring to lay their eggs, and rear their young. But anyone unacquainted with this fact may ramble over *the place at any time during the day and. be quite oblivious to the fact that be neath his very feet the ground...

Baldwin for Baking.-An evidence that the Baldwin is a splendid bak ing apple lies in the fact that in Chicago a series of restaurants under: one management uses 100 bushels of Baldwin apples a day. No other variety is used in these restaurants for this purpose. The apples used are large, well-grown specimens without blemish of any kind. There is for such apples a demand which fruit glowers would do well to meet.

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 16 January 1915
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Lieut. Hugh Army tage, son of Mr. Harry Armytage: I haven't had time to write to you for ages, but here 'goes now. We've had a pretty exciting time lately, and have had one or two quite warm moments,. but we are on the, march again.. First of. all, I started- off at. tle Aisne, about 20 miles E. of Soissons, but did. nothing there, as we were in reserve. We were there some time, and then we started on a round of long marching through the night, and halting by day, with our vehicles and horses concealed frorn. aeroplanes in orchards or woods, so as not to be spotted. Our longest march was the day after we detrained. We came round from Varbene to Abbeville by train. When I left the station with a party at 11, the battery got fixed in their billet at 5. We were then ordered to march again, 10 p.m. Marched all through the night; slept for two hours by the roadside, and then went on, and got into our new bil lets at 8.30 a.m. A good day's march that, wansn't...
CLOSED ROADS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
CLOSED ROADS. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-I would like to bring under. public notice the action of the Bac hus Marsh Shire Council in dealing with Mr. T. L. Rogers' application to have a Government road, adjoin ing my property, opened. Cr. Wells moved that the application lay on the table for a month. Which, in my opinion, was the proper course, but Cr. Robertson (who seems to be labouring under a mania for open ing closed roads at the present time) said there was no need for it to lay there ten minutes, and he moved :. that the request be granted, as it was the only road Rogers had out. I feel sure this is a mistake, as Rogers has been in occupation of the farm.for some years; and even if this road were opened now, he would be no better off, as the road (in its present state) is inaccessible,., even on horseback. I think that such an important matter as opening a road, which. :. has been closed for so many years, should receive more than momen tary consideration by the Crs. ...
THE FAKING OF FOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 23 January 1915
'HE FAKING OF FOODS. The day of the artificial leg of mutton and the manufactured potato has not yet arrived, but mankind seems to be making some progress towards the time when its daily bread will be. prepared in the labora tory of the chemist. A few weeks ago Dr. Stillman, 'a prominent mem ber of the staff of the Stevens Insti tute of Technology at New York, en tertained some guests at dinner,, and made by chemical processes, before the eyes of the diners, all the dishes except the oysters, the meat and the salad. On a, side table were test tubes, Busen burners, retorts,; and bot ties containing various chemicals. The cocktail with which the meal commenced was produced in a few minutes, spirits of wine, ice, a pre paration called "absinthine," and a yellow aniline dye being the ingredi ents. The guests drank boldly and found the flavor to be excellent. The oysters were the product of Dame Nature's work, but the sauce was a compound of citric acid, artificial vinegar and red anilin...

The veloci pede was r-.e at Mr. James Reid's establishment Mr. Carlton. has also. manufactured a bicycle, but he has not had time to acquire such skill and dexterity in using it as Robert Reid has. There is. some talk. of a Caledonian Gathering at Maddingley on 9th Nov. - next, and a prize will most likely be offered for a velocipede race.
