CORRESPONDENCE. MOUNT GAMBIER PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. MOUNT GAMBIER PRESBY TERIAN CEHURH. (To the Editor). Sir,-My attention has been drawn to the fact that you republished the other day a par from the Portland "Guardian" which stated erroneously that Mr. Davidson, of Eaglehawk, and myself had been "applicants" for the pastorate of Mount Gambier Pres byterian Church; now vacant. This is quite incorrect. Our names were aecommended to the church there quite without our knowledge by the Director of Home Missions, whose opinion was sought. For myself, I im mediately replied to the request that came from Mount Gambier declining the proposal. Yours, etoc., rWILLIAM TAIT. The Manse, Portland, 3rd. January, 1914.

Record of Wheat Stacks. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
Record of Wheat Stacks. ---~-- The longest authenitic period for which a wheat stack has been kept .unthrushed is forty years. The story of this forty-year-old stack is briefly as follows :-The crop of which the stack was built was grown in 1855. This stack and another belonged to two brothers, both farmers, Vlho lived in the neigh bourhood of Harrogate. In lMarch of the preceding year the Crimean War broke .out, and the price of wheat rose- by leaps and bounds. Shortly after the stacks were built the price of wheat rose to 97s.'per quartir, and at this price one of the brothers sold out. The other, how ever, determined not to sell until the price rose' to £5. In March, 1850, the war teriminat ed, and the price of wheat fell.' The farmer, however, stuck, to his reso lution and refused to sell. Ie kept his stack? until 1895, when the farim passed into the hands of a .younger brother, who then thrashed it out. D- uring the whole forty' years of its existence it had enjoyed perfect im ...

Bravo, Ysaye ! [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
Bravo, Ysaye I An amusing story is related about lM. Ysayc, the famous violinist, by the ';Eoile Blcge.' During his visit to America the artiste was the guest of a Nett York millionaire who in his early days was a shoe maker. After dinner his host importuned Ysaye to play; and when he hesitat ed remarked : "A mannn should never be ashamned to exhibit his art." Thereupon Ysaye played to his host. H-llavintg returned ti lurope, the violinist invited his former million aire host, who ,halppened to be in Paris, to dinner. i During the even ing a pIir of boots much the worse foi wear were handed to the guest. "M'y dear friend," said Ysaye, "do me the favour of mending these boots for me." The millionairer was speechless with anmazement. . - "A man should never he ashamed to exhibit his art;" added Ysayc, with a significant smile. At a hospital staff ball in the North we learn that "the doctors dancedi tire lancers," which is a less painful operation than lancing the dancers. SEarl Grey, ...
