HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 21 March 1912

HERE AND THERE. L[BY JonesuI W.uEL?I.] It is not generally known that Werribee possesses a Progress Association-but, such is the case. The attendance rarely exceeds 100-sometimes it comes down to 2, and the business paper is all about the health of the district. Surely there is sulfficient public spirit in the community to cause the Progress Association to pro gress. Suppose the Association was to advertise its meetings and let the public know what was to be discussed-well, there would no longer he cause to growl about attendances. Another great cricket meeting has been held-this time in Sydney to protest against the team of Australian cricketers chosen at the instance of the board of control. Now we all have our "fancies" about a good reliable team to uphold the honor of Australia and endeavour to bring back the "'ashes." .If the selection rested with Johnnie Walker the team would be Messrs Wills Bros., sentr., Steve Tinkler, Tysack, Cayley, Barnes, J. Beamish, jun., P. Hickey, Mah...

GIRLS MEN AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 21 March 1912

GIRLS MEN AVOID. Oh, yes, there are some-girls whom some men are glad to avoid, even though they may not do so openly. Girls and women that men cannot tolerate are: Those who deprive a father and inother of comforts In order that they .may be stylish and smart beyond their means. Those who gad about with men of whom they know but little. Those who bedeck themselves with Jewellery the first thing in the morn Ing, as such a display suggests had taste and a vulgar love of show. Those who adopt mannish attitudes ind pose as athletie specimens of their sex. Those who 'boast of their numerous conquests and declarp olenly that the man does not exist whom they deem good enough to marry. Those who sit and stare a strange man out of countenance, and then com plain that he returns the rudeness. ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. No woman need be ugly.

Copyright. A IMIDSHIPMAN'S < ROMANCE. By W. Clark Russell, Author of "The Death Ship," "The Frozen Pirate," etc. PART 15. The more I saw of this island the more I was astonished. The combined forces of nature had so swept it as to seem to leave it but little more than a perfect"bed of rooto; not that there was not plenty of soil, but it was thin, and the roots showed through it. I took it that upon these roots and other timber in the water beneath, the island floated, and that whilst the soil re mained firm, the astonishing fabric would continue compact. ' It will be something to talk about,' said 1. We shall not be believed,' said Belle. 'If this island bad been a hill, what thenf? It would have gone down, 1 suppose.' ' Haven't hills and mountains their foot upon the bottom of the sea ?' asked Belle. As these words were pronounced we opened the scene of shoro where the boat lay. What do I amy ?

StufiOC.d nonsense! Such sentVW ments are not drawn from human na' Lure!

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. Francis I. of France once said that k court without women would be likd a year without spring, and a spring without roses; and Malherbei who w\'a a poet, said that there are only two pretty things in the world, women and roses; and only two dainty morsels; women and melons. Then Chateaubriand said: "Mad without woman would be gross, rude and solitary, and would ignore the grace which is the smile of love. -Wo man hangs around him the flowers of life, like those forest creepers which adorn the trunks of oaks with their perfumed garlands." F. J. Stahl said: "The mind of woe men has every kind of relation to the diamond. It is fine, it is precious, it has a thousand fires, a thousand rayse it has facets which radiate In every direction, It dazzles and betrays itself, even in the shade, when the s:lghtaEst opening is made. It cannot be shut up in the Jewel-box; it must be seen." Fontenelle said: "Among women modesty has great advantages. It aug' ments beauty, and se...
