BACCHUS MARSH. No. 49. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
BACOCHUS MARSH. By W. WILLIAMS, B.A. No. 49.. Bacchus Marsh Races, of 1871. Horse racing must have been em bedded in the Crook family. Heon, Sec. was our late old friend Mr. Cornelius Mahoney. Two of princi -: pal races .were won by horses owned by J.R. Cirbok-~-Saladin and Primia I:- Donna. F. Crook was the mount in both races. I find some picturesque writing on the meeting, not from : editorial pen, but a lady retords her impressions. I have an idea that the nom-de-plume, "Amelia Grundy," is fictitious, for the whole cast of production bears too much evidence of masculinity. The contribution S runs into a column. Miss Amelia Grundy is accompanied by Mr. Fitz boodle. "At the pressing invitation of Mr. Fitr, I drank a. lady'S blush in Mr. Canny's booth, "pro salute animm," and we returned to the hill. The bell sounded to prepare for the next race-the great race of the day. Fitz and I .could not re sist the temptation to witness the start of both horses. As they step S ped gaily fort...

MAX MULLER'S MODESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
MAX MUTLLER'S MODESTY. The modesty of Professor Max Mul ler. a man in the very forefront of those distinguishrd for their linguistic attain ments, is illustrated by the following incident: He was once asked how many lan. guages he knew. "I hqpe I know my mother tongue," hlie made answer; "1 am acquainted with a few others." "'Why this caution?" was the next question. " I will tell you," said Jro fossor Max. "There came to me one Iay, as I sat here, in my study-a I ?ddha-a man who seemed my ideal of the Sanskrit priesthood. He spoke to me in an unknown tongue. I asked hiim what the language might be. The ,nan huddled himself togethier on tihe dloor and wept. 'I have worshipped you all my life as the greatest living Sanskrit scholar in all the world; I speak to you a simple Sanskrit saluta tion and you do not understand me. Since then," added Professol- Max solr rowfully, "I never say that I know any language." It was but the difference between the spoken and the written "dead" tongue...

FOR THE OVER-STRENUOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 April 1915
FOR THIE OVER-STRENUOUS. "'Penny wise and pound foolish' i" a proverb that has a far larger applica ,tion than the fillancial one," was the remark of a medical authority of long and wide exn lience. "I h3vo h',d," he proceeded,. " many patients who have paid for their habit of savillng few hours fromn sleep or re t:reation f?r" their business by weeks of illness. To he miserly of time is as bad as be;ng miserly of money. "A few minutes' rest before eating, when you are fatigued, and after eat injg when the meal has to be followed by work, will save you months of tor. ture from dyspepsia. "A -few moments' rest at intervals, when you are engaged on a 'very long and exhausting mental task, will enable the brain to gather fresh stores of strength and the mind to clear itself; while the habit' of ceasing to work at night directly drowsiness asserts itseli will amply repay you in refreshing sleep and sound health.
