THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER V (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 18 June 1914
THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER V (Continued.) She did not linger long amongst, the glowing flower-beds, . where tiie brightness of tho geraniums was en hanced by. the scorching sun, but hur ried down the silent shrubberies, where lovely variegated shrubs from . every part of the world stretched their deli cate branches over her head, and made a refreshing shelter, out into the park beyond, where .herds of deer were browsing amongst the bracken. Start led by iier footfall on tho grass, they raised their delicate heads, gave the intruder a glanco of mistrust, and scudded lightly away, as if blown . by a breath. After wandering through one delici ous glado after another, she came to a broad piece of water, shining like golden glass in the sun. One end, where the trees dipped their branches into the water, was in shadow, and looked so invitingly-, cool, that leaning over it wistfully, she longed to bathe v her burning bead in its refreshing waves. Last night how gloriously liappy she was f...

What is the value of each horse?
Correspondence. UNJUST TREATMENT. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 18 June 1914
Correspondence. UNJUST TREATMENT. ( 7o the Editor) Sir,-Finding I am -unable to Obtain justice, I write earnestly to your readers to use their influence to protect Aus tralian lads in various States from un just treatment from the Defence de partment. My own son at this moment lies in a solitary confinement cell in the Queensclifl fortress for no other mis demeanour than loyalty to his parents' views of Christian teaching, and thun our cherished right cf parental control has been forced from uaf Our eon, a lad of 16, was sent to QueenBcliff last week for 21 days for refusing to train under the Defence Act.

MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 18 June 1914
-MAKE YOUR DISTRICT KNOWN. Concerning some parts of the district new8 comes but seldom. Now this is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous powers of knowing what is happening in all the places iu the area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one else it doing it for your district, will YOU try on the lines? Send accounts of public and social eventB in your township or neighbor hood. Give information, but let criticism alone. The information will'probably be right, and the public can make their own deductions therefrom. Do not bother about grammar or spel ling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles.

ELECTION NOTES. The dissolution is to take place on 20th July ; issue of writs 30th July ; nomination Gth August, and elections on 5th September. The ".Argua" last week published a portrait of Mr W. J. M'i.ean, one of the selected Liberal candidates for the Senate, and says that in 1910 he was presented with a requisition containing 4000 names, asking him to oppose Mr Wise for Gipt-aland. A vigorous pub lic speaker, Mr M'L?an has inherited the persuasive and winning manner of his father. His wide knowledge of rural interests enables him to give full consideration to the special needs of the man on the land, whilst his com mercial experfence has given him a close acquaintance with urban require ments. Educated at St Francis Xaviers College, Mr M'Lean was greatly interested in sport in his youuger days, having been captain of both cricket and football teams, and also a follower of the hounds. Commenting on the double dissolu tion, the London "Times"' says that the Liberal Ministry's p...

RULED WITH A. ROD OF "PIG" IRON. . "If a wife, l>y constant nagging, or unreasonable restrictions, excites a husband to absent himself from home, even for an extended period, that wife has not any light to sue for divorce on the ground of desertion." That is the law of th9 United States as emphasised by a judge in Sc. Louis, and affords henpecked husbands all over the States much consolation. "For 26 years," Mr Fleischmau, an. a'liicted husband, declared, "my wife enforced an ironclad set of rules, and if she charges me with desertion now, I ask, can you blame me?" The husband alleged that his wife's rules included the following : She banged a gong as a signal for him to retire, and banged his head as a signal for him to get up. Locked the house at 8 p.m. If lie was not in he slept in the woodshed. Made him take off his boots at the door. Made him pay 30a a week for board, and the grocer's bill. Made him carry water and wash his own clothes. Gave her pet poodle a bath twice a wee...

LIFE OUT-BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 18 June 1914
LIFIi OUT-BACK. A correspondent from Glenfalloch writes :-An accident, in which, luck ily, nothing was broken except a pair of trousers and the monotony of a couple of bush-whackers' lives, happened here'the other day. Two scrub cutters were shiftiug camp, aud they packed their tent, tools, pots and pans on a young brumby which they had captured a few weeks previously. On top of the load sat Jack , a little man almost hidden by a- wealth of red whiskers. They started off, Cliff riding a quiet old moke, and leading the pie-bald brumby, aud carrying in his arms a few mattock handles, half a billvcan of honey, and a looking glaHS. All went well for a mile or so, when the brumby, which must have caught the reflection in the glass of the bunch of whiskers under which he was travel ling, pulled away atd bolted. In swerving through, the timber, the brumby shifted Jack slightly in his Heat, when a hook on. the saddle be came very much attached to his trousers seat, and he stuck like Little ...

RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 25 June 1914
RABBITS. (By Silas Snell). It is evident (wo cannot blink the fact any longer) that rabbits in this district are getting about 3 per cent, beyond the limits of safety. They have surged over the formerly immune shires of South Gipptjland, and when the. South Gippsland rabbits meet the Norlh Gippsland rabbits-well, we in this district will be right in the thick of it. A farmer from South Gippsland told me the other day that they do not suffer from rabbit panic. They live on fairly good terms of friendship with the yellow plague, which is trea8ed with the respect usually ac corded to an old resident. The land owner may kick a rabbit from his doorstep when he gets up in the morn ing, and may startle a couple of dozen from their coverts when he walks half a mile across the paddock to see if his dam is dried up or if his windmill has tied itself in a knot, yet his mind is never in a state of panic over the matter. Nevertheless, the rabbit takes his toll of the grass, and requires to be wa...
