HOOPS. Witli the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends me the following: — When you're walking good as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, "When you're musing with dejection On the latest by-election, Or brooding over business which is wearing rather thin, 11' there comes a savage clanking And a swift metallic spanking , And a bounding loop of iron barks a segment of your shin— Pray accept the situation With submissive resignation— j . Hoops are in! | When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind— If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her plaything with appreciative grin— Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! —London "Opinion.,,

111. Barbara hail seen , a good deal of Paris, but hot nearly so much as she would have liked to. The count ess, •'who 'was a victim'of. moods, had. a melancholy one soon after they ar-: rived in the Gay City, and went out very little of an evening, and Bar bara had to remain with her in her rooms at the Elysee Palace Hotel. But after a few days they went on to Cambo, and in the charming little Chateau Barbara was supremely j happy. The view over the country was su perb, and the air of the Pyrenees was £i> glorious that only .to breathe it was to. feel the joy of life. , In Cambo she found the countess less exigent. Madame had visitors, end Barbara was not always invited to join them. She was told that she might1 make little excursions on her own account, and she did not fail to do so. The cguntess went out now more frequently than she had done in j-aris—and she went alone. The gossip of the servants at the Chateau speedily enlightened Bar bara as to the change in he count ess's ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 6 May 1914

I Two days after Barbara had been in London she obtained; permission of her employer, the Countess Martinez, to spend the evening with the Glyns. The meeting was a little painful to Barbara at first; It almost brought the tears to her eyes to see Mrs. j Glyn, -who had been accustomed . to everything that wealth could com lti'and, seated in the small, low-ceiling ed, shabbily furnished sitting room of the little suburban house—one of a long, monotonous row. Gilbert was at home when Barbara, arrived, and his lace was a little flushed as he opened the door to her and greeted her in the narrow hall. Gabert was only human, and he felt just a passing pang of humiliation as he. welcomed the girl he loved, the girl who had known him in such dif ferent circumstances to these sur roundings. ^ But Barbara had not been, with Gil bert and his mother and the two girls long before she had quite cheered them up. "It is very hard on Gilbert," said Mrs. Glyn during the temporary ab sence of her son. ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE SPORTING PROCLIVITIES OF MOE. (TO THE EDITOR). [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 6 May 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. [We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarity approve of the opinions expressed by correspondents in this column.] THE SPORTING PROCLIVITIES OF MOE. (to the editor). Sir,—In your last issue, under tbe above heading, there appears an article by " Pistol," to which I desire to take exception—in bo far as it applies to the Moe Rifle Club, which club J. beg to inform " iJistol" is far from being "numbered among the slain." At the present time, the Moe Rifle Club is in a very sound position, both, numerically and finan cially. Last year 45 members completed the 'musketry course, 19 qualified as marksmen and 21 as first-class shots ; and there is every probability of this record being beaten in the musketry now being fired. Daring the year, a number of matches with other clubs have taken place, and while.the team has not been as successful on the range as might be wished, there has rarely been any trouble in getting a team together. ^...A .naraber of t...

YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest • medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts.. What you want is quality and reliability-in sfriall dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. Presbyterian Church services: — Sunday next—Trafalgar 11, Yarragon 3, Moe 7. A Grcoer...
