The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 25 August 1914
The Non-Advertiser. ? Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him wei], For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, ^ Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moBs; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise."

Witislow (League) umpired, and a _£14 gate witnessed the scrap. After a few moments of give and take play Benalla found an opening, a point appearing. Shortly after George Noonan gathered kitty to his arms and put up the two flags. Cameron and Pinkie Carruthers got their metal into good running order very quickly. Dodger Gallagher slipped one iu for a point for the home team. An excellent movement by Will iams gave Noonan a difficult open ing for scoring. He shot across the sticks.

Manifesto of the Australian labor Party. TO THE ELECTORS OF THIS COMMONWEALTH. Fellow Electors — It is with very great regret that we find ourselves iuvolved in pirly strife at the present juncture. The responsibility for pressiug on with the elections at a time when our very existence is at stake, rests not with us, but with the Government who have deliberately refused every suggestion put forward for a poli tical truce. In the face of this refusal remains nothing for us but to set before the electors the reasons why they should vote for the Labor party on 5th September. And because of the special circumstances, we shall do this very shortly, mak ing only passing reference to all other issues than those directly arising out of the war. We do this not because these other issues, affecting as they do the very roots I of the economic and social life of the community are in any way lessened in importance by this pre sent calamity of war which has fallen upon us, but because for the tim...
