The Rabbit Pest. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
The Rabbit Pest. It is pleasing to note that the landowners in the Traralgon and other Gippsland districts are tak ing concerted action to prevent the spread of rabbits. And action is j being taken none too soon. A 'few. years ago there was hardly a rabbit to be found this side of the Haunted Hills, but to-day o-d (pnes are (to be teen on nearly every, property -in the Traralgon district. They Ido not take long to multiply, Land the sooner they ore extermina; ted the better for all concerned. It would never do to let them ob tain the hold they have in the. Omeo district, but there is a little excuse for the landowners there, for the country is very mountain ous, and extremely hard to wire net. There is no excuse lor the local landowners if the rabbits get the best of them. They have had ample warning, and the inspector (Mr. O'Connell) has done his best to instruct them as to (the best means of eradicating the pest. In spite of this there are some dilatory landowners who have siot li...
DEVELOP THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
DEVELOP THE MAN. The figure ot General Sir Ian Hamilton has "not quite fitted into the Austra'ian ci i-ens' army, or perhaps it should be said that our military forces are not quite ready tor a visit from the Imperial In spector-General. General Ha milton is ajbove all else £ perman ent soldier, a trained expert.mi 1 tary leader. He comes amongst us efficient, dapper and vigijant, and he puts us through our paces. He is accustomed to paid,- per manent troops, officers and men who put in their lives in barrack squares, in instruction rooms, aild on manoeuvre areas, and he natur ally looks here lor efficiency ap proaching the European parade ground. He is thorough.. He be lieves in thoroughness. His motto throughout life has been: " thoroughness." 'And m Austra lia .where the most essential of all things is his opinion, is military thoroughness; he cxpects to find the army thorough. General Ha milton is disappointed, and already he has expressed some disap pointment. How much disappoi...
THE ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER PROPOSAL. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
THE ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER PROPOSAL. (To the Edi: Sir,-I noticed a letter on the above question in a recent issue of your contemporary. The writfer tries to pour a little cold water on the project to introduce clectnc light and power into Trara'goii. He is indeed a litt.e too pre vious, and should have waited until the full details of the schemc are presented before " getting his blow in." It the company offers something better and cheapcr than gas, the writer, providing he is-a consumer, would not turn' it down. It is all very mice to advise rate payers to hang on to the mono poly, but' the consumer wants the cheapest light and fowe", whether supplied- by a company or the counci1. Mere sentiment c'ocs.not count in this matte-. Electric light and power is both more con venient and more general y u:e ful than, gas, and there is very little ;doubt that it would be lar gely used in Traralgon and neigh borhood.^ If a generating plant is erected at Tyers it will be the means of establi...
PEOPLING THE LAND. GIPPSLAND DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
PEOPLING THE LAND. GIPPSLAND DEVELOPMENT In order to increase the num ber of immigrants coming to our shores to settle on the land, the migration authorities have decided to draw from Northern Europe, where four age.nts have been in instructed to proceed. Speaking upon the question, Mr. Haglethorn said: " Apart from the irrigated areas the problem of the development ol: Gippsland on proper and progres sive lines was also important, and, to enable to be effectively coped with, the addition of a large po pulation was required. Gippsland farmers, at any rate largely in the dairying districts, were posses sed: of holdings which in many cases were far too great in extent for effective working and develop ment. It had become abundantly evident that the introduction of a large volume of additional labor was necessary to share the bur dens of the present setters, and to Uevelojp m a fuller measure the possibilities of the country. Ex amples of the effects which \vere plroduced by the presen...
NOVELMETHOD OF FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
NOVELMETHOD OF FISHING. A correspondent from Bufga writes to . the Yarram " Chro nicle One hears ot some suc cessful excursions with rod and fly among the trout in the Traralgon crek at this time of the year. A local resident claims to have made (L record cast in the creek the other day. Seeing a large fish in the shallow wa.ter, he threw a stone fit it, and was 'delighted to secure a Wbeautiful 4lb. trout, which floa ted up as the result ot his most successful, but decidedly unortho dox cast." This is far more primitive than the blackfellow's way ot Spearing the flsh, ppd though effec tive is," to say the least, decidedly unsportsmanlike. Neither is it au thorised by any of the rules and precedents of the noble art of ang ling. Still it is not as bad as trapping the fish by means of djams -as it is said 'has been done. ?
H.M.A.S. AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
H.M.A.S. AUSTRALIA. When the new Australian fleet made Sydney its first' oifficial port of call in the Commonwealth, a public holiday was declared, and much public money was spent, and when the ships make Melbourne there will be nothing doing in the way ot festivities, there will be no public reception,'and there wfl be no celebration; unless the pub lic paid leaders awake. The tirst visit to Port Phillip of Australia's first battleship and nearly com plete unit should be the occasion for rejoicing, ana weil expressed good will. The event is historic. It is fraught with lessons for Mel bourne, especially Melbourne chil dren attending school. And it is the home coming of a thousand Melbourne sailors. Yet the au thorities make no move. Melbourne is the birth place of the Australian navy, and its public spirit, though unexpressed by those who live upon it, will yet make the Australian fleet's arrival memorable. The dullness in the preliminary prooceedings is, how ever, one of many sign...
THE GIPPSLAND BUSH FIRES 20,000 ACRES OF GRASS DESTROYED. HAIRBREADTH ESCAPES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 February 1914
THE GIPPSLAND BUSH FIRES 20,000 ACRES OF GRASS &nbsp; DESTROYED. HAIRBREADTH ESCAPES The following account of the fires last week in the Blackwarry hills is taken from the Yarram " Chronicle":- " Last week will long be remembered by the hill country settlers, &nbsp; punctuated as it was by the &nbsp; most trying experiences in their lives. Falling of heavy timber, some miles distant, like the boom of heavy cannons, was sufficient to make the stoutest hearts quail. It announced the certain approach of fire, and with the strong wind that prevailed throughout the hills, ever &nbsp; changing, marked a zig-zag course and it frequently happened that what was left in the wake of the big fire was consumed the next day. Where possible, women and children were taken to places of safety, but in the remote parts such a course was impossible. The fiercest fire raged at Blackwarry, a parish noted for the biggest &nbsp; timber in the world, where &nb...
Thought Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914
Thought Otherwise. Tho proprietor of a certain coai yard liad the misfortune to lose the services of one of his carters, who was taken suddenly ill. It was in the busiest part of the season, and the merchant, after a little consideration, decided to entrust the horse and cart to the care of a person of weak intel- j lect who had hitherto looked after the barrows about the yard. Accordingly, Sammy received mi nute instructions from his master, and went off to deliver his first load. He failed to return, however, and after waiting some considerable time his master headed a small search party. The missing man was found at the house of the customer, where, after putting the coal in the shed, he had drawn a chair up to the kitchen Are and made himself at home. The cook said she could not get rid of tiim, and the coal merchant deman- i ded an explanation from the delin ' quent. 1 "Remember," he said facetiously, I "I dJd not sell you with the coal." "Oh," replied Sammy, "I though! you did...
What Did He Want? [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914
What Did He Want? Nobody outside the journalistic pro fession lias ari7" idea how difficult it is for aa editor to please some of his pa trons. For instance, referring to a public man's reputation for careless ness in the matter of his toilet, a paper announced: ' "Mr. Maguire will wash himself be fore he assumes the office of town councilor." This made Maguire furious, and lie demanded a retraction, which appear ed thus: "Mr. Maguire requests us to deny that he will wash himself before he assumes the office of town councillor." Oddly enough, this only enraged Ma guire the more.
MISCALLED "MODESTY." [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914
MISCALLED "MODESTY." Many a man who fails to advance in flfe puts down his failure to sensitive* ness and modesty. "There is, perhaps," remarked a shrewd observer of men and' things, 1 "no term which is so often misused by being employed to cover cowardice and want of initiative as that word 'modesty.' To be modest, strictly speaking, is to be unassuming, to re cognise our own limitations, and to be considerate and respectful to'wards others. But while, as a consequence, modesty is not consistent with an arro gant daunting of our personal preten sions, neither does it mean hiding shamefacedly from the world what the world has a right to see an.l know. "On the whole, I would rather a man should think too wcii of himself than t.oo meanly. It is not eiough to be willing to give others their rights. We must be bold enough to dc:mand our own, otherwise our supposed mo desty will simply amount to cowar dice.'

ENGLISH STANDS FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 March 1914
ENGLISH STANDS FIRST. "For centuries," said an authority on languages, "there has been what may be called a 'battle oftongues,' but English is winning all along the line. To-day it is the dominant language ol the world, being spoken by one hun- ? dred and twenty millions of people. Second-and a long way behind comes German, spoken by about seven ty-five millions. Russia is third, very slightly behind Germany In point of numbers; while French follows with , about fifty-one millions. | "Wonderful changes have taken : place during the last century. In 1S00, : French held the first place, and bade . fair to become the world language. ! Russian, German and Spanish came next, and English was a bad fifth. But our tongue can convey a meaning in > far fewer words than any other, and the quality has brought it to the front. "In another century it will probably be spoken by half the peoples of the globe. As a language it is constantly growing simpler, stronger and more direct. Russian will ...

A TRAGEDY IN A TRAIN. "Yesterday afternoon," said John William Sprigg, "I went out to Burn ham Beeches. I had tea there, and after wandering about a bit, I sat down on a bank.. X must then have dozed off. At any "rate, when I waked sud denly, it was growing dark. _. I hur ried to the station, where I just caught a train. There were two other people in the compartment-a man and a girl. They sat opposite me, whisper ing a good deal, and staring in my direction. By-and-bye, the man lean ed over, and spoke to me. " 'Beg pardon, air; but your clothes be all over ants.' "It was true. I must have been sitting on an ant-heap. They swarmed all over me, making little expeditions on the floor and cushions. "The girl scrambled on to the seat, and screamed. '"Hold your noise!' said the man "But she made a grab at the com munication cord, and bawled like mad. Soon the train stoped. The guard came along in a hurry. " 'What's the matter?' he asked. "When they told him, he swore, and took all our na...
