He takes the view that.a-per son .ho has the notes in his.possession ,ill find it hard. to return..them if he is in need of financial assistance, and: he. assumesa that: the recipient will be greatly impressed by the:.openhanded way in which the money-lender deals vith his clients.

Mr Wi-. liams has specialised: in. extricating young men from the toils of monIvy lenders, received a letter from. J. Marsh, Ltd., enclosing £50 in notes as an unsolicited l...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
* OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus.") "This is a great country, but it is not used," said an American the other day. He said it with an air of un covering a fact of which Australians are not aware, and which it would bo well for them to know and to aot ac cordingly. There is no gainsaying the accuracy of his observation, and it is probable that there are few Australians who think at all, who" do not ack nowledge its truth. But-to aot upon thie knowledge is altogether a different matter. There is some progress to wards exhibiting inore fully the im mense resources of the country, but it is a painfully slow process. For the most part, we are not far in advance of the lotos eating natives of the- tro pics who are content to take" the goods the gods provide in the shape of the fruit, fiish and flesh. Nature, with prodigal bounty furnishes, and let it go at that. True, we. make some effort, but to a very great ex tent, this country of unbounded pos sibility. in the way of production is in...
