"WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH FATHER." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
" WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH FATHER." j -0 .The Rev. W. H. Scurr took thd above rather original subject for his address at the Traralgon Me thodist church on Sunday even ing fast. Although the weather was warm, and oppressive, a large congregation assembled, and, as usual, his remarks were found very, interesting and instructive. The musical portion of the service was specially enjoyable. The anthem, Sweet is the Sunlight, was givert by the choir, Miss. Scurr being the soloist; a quartette, The Angels', Song, by Misses Temby and M4 Crowe and Messrs. L. Crowe and T. Gilbert; and orchestral items by, Messrs. L. M. and W. Crowe (cor nets), and Hall (violin). . At the outset Mr.*Scurr ex plained he had chosen the tit'e of the song, " What's the Matter wttli Father?" as the subject of his ad dress, not only because it was cal culated to arrest attention, and perhaps arouse curiosity; not only, because it might thus lead some to, come to the House of God to hear, and thus be brought within th...

NEW INDUSTRIAL PROJECT. ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER FOR TRARALGON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
NEW INDUSTRIAL PROJECT. 8I -4t-- ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER FOR TRARALGON. Councillor Whittakers told a deputation that waited on the Traralgon shire council on Wed nesday last that the electric hlight and power scheme came upon him as i surprise, and other-council lors concurred. It was reported some months ago, that a syndi cate had been formed for the pur pose of utilising the motive power of the Tyers river, and star ing a new industrial enterprise near Tra ralgon. It was also said that the company would generate ecctrin city for developing the lime depo sits of the Tyers, and also for supplying light and power to Tra ralgon. But the people are always sceptical until they can see tan gible proof. Hence the local pro posal had not been. taken seriously The offer made to the shire csun cii has given the matter concrete shape, and now it will have to be seriously considered by the coun cil and ratepayers, and especia!ly by prospective consumers. The company, or syndi:ate, as far as o...

AN APPRECIATION OF FRANKLIN How He Helped the World. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
AN APPRECIATION OF FRANKLIrN How He Helped tho World. Ton often hear loud praise of Frank fin's statecraft--how he cleared the political horizon of the new countrJ and gave it a steady footing amoni the older~ations. I beg of ydu now to look at his worlk for his neighbors, writes Rebecca Harding Davis in "St. Nicholas." He was not loud or anarchistic, as the young radical reformer is apt to be just now. He went about sane, quiet tactful, merely "setting things to rights"--big .things and little. If 'he thought the people of this village the.people of this country-the people of the world to whom the gates of the continent were now open-were to find peace and a full li's here, big things and little must be set to rights at once. There was a homely every day quality in the man that matched every-day needs. He. had been for some time, for example, secretly grap pling with the lightning. He braced himself, conquered it, yoked it, and then, without a, word of triumph, quiet ly explained t...
THE VINEGAR PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
THE VINEGAR PLANT. The vinegar plant, which by its growth in saccharine liquids at mod erate temperature converts them into vinegar, is a kind of fungus. It can be produced thus: A solution of lib. of sugar, %lb. of treacle, in 3 quarts of water, is first simmered and then poured into a jar, covered up, and kept in a warm place for six weeks. The liquid becomes linegar, and on the top is :ormed a scum-like fungus, which is the "vine gar plant." By adding a piece of this to a similar solution, the process of conversion into vinegar takes place in much less time. The plant thickens during the process'by the formation of a new layer on its under-surface: by peeling off this, and using it in a fresh operation, the plant may be pro pagated indefinitely.
Perhaps It Was. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
Perhaps It Was. A reporter hurried into the local station, and meeting the stationmaster, said to him: t. "I hear that there has been an acci dent on your line to-night." "Oh, you do, do you?" said the o-fi cial scornfully. "Yes." And the reporter waited, pencil and paper In hand. "What do you know about this ac cident?" the other asked. "Nothing, except that it happened to the 9.15 train," was the reporter's meekly-given answer. "Well," said the stationmaster, "that train came in on time to the minute." "Are you sure of that?" asked the reporter. "Of course I am, sir." The disappointed reporter pocketed his implements. "Perhaps," he said, thoughtfully, "that war teao accident referred to."
In Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 February 1914
In Settlement A lawyer in a Western American town Interested himself in the case of a man accused of murder. As a re sult the culprit, who had had muck provocation, got off very lightly. Six months afterwards a man, are ed to the teeth, appeared in the law yer's office. "Are you Lawyer R.," he roared. "Yes," was the reply. "And 'are you the fellow that helped Dingo Jack at court?" The lawyer, thinking his time had come, again answered: "Yes." "Well," said the man with the guns and knives, "I'm Jack's pardner, an I've come to pay you. I haven't any money, but I'm a man of honor. Any. body In town you don't like?" The other assured him there waa not; but the man looked incredulous and said: "Put on your hat and take a wallR with me. See anybody you don't like: lust point him out, an' I'll pop him' Many events of public interest and value never reach the columns of the local newspaper.

GLENMAGGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 February 1914
GLENMAGGIE. A concert and ball was held in the MIechanics' Halt on Friday evening last, in aid of the funds of one of the local churches. The hall was crowded, and the pro ceeds realised over £20, which is very good indeed. A splendid pro gramme (w~as rendered by the local talent, who were assisted by. ar tists from Heyfield and Maffra, and it was thoroughly enjoyed. The dancers had a great time at the conclusion of the concert. The new Roman Catho'ic church, which is being built by Mr. F. 1I'Carthy, of Rosedale, is fast nearing completion. The brick work is finished, the carpen ters have almost coinpleted their work, and the plasterers wi 1 commence operations this week some time.

PEOPLING VICTORIA. CLOSER SETTLEMENT TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 20 February 1914
PEOPLING VICTORIA.. CLOSER SETTLEMENT TROUBLES. The question of closer settle ment has,. during the past tew days, excited profound interest not only in;Parliament, but throughout a Victoria. The damning report pf d the committee appointed to en- t quire into the whole policy of the Closer ,Settlement : Board has convinced all that' there is drastic neead for change., In any case the interests at stake are very. large, a The.Closer >Settlement Board has spent- on. the average of £500,000 per annum on the purchase of land, and also advances an aver age ~ot 1200,000 a year to settlers. Thus the board controls a busi ness which taxes the electors to the ,extent of '£700,000 a year. The curious feature of the busi ness is that the present chairman of the board declared frankly that he was not master of the position, and added the startling remark: "An apple cart down the' street coulkt not be run on the lines on which Victoria's closer settlement policy was conducted." To this statem...
