CONCERNING THE GLOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 9 January 1914
CONCERNING THE GLOVE. "Ilow fond we are of using the glove for purposes of simile," remarks s writer. "For instance, to be hand in ;?love with anyone expresses a particu larly close and intimate understand ing" betwec-n two people. A cat in clove catches no mice: which mp.;.7i« that work requiring skill and prompt ness needs very downright handling. To throw down the glove or gauntlet :s an action of defiance, to pick it 'ir. is to accept, the challenge. "To fit like a glove is a simile foi all that can be desired in the cut and ecmfort of a garment. To say that r man is closely gloved is not to call him a liberal person; and to remark Hint his gloves are always laige is t&lt; ?rodi t him with a generous disposition To give one's s.-jlf gloves is to boast When we should sav 'Walls havr aars,' Germans pay 'There is a glov )n the hearth.'"

The tfine is removed ind a big white tub is Drought in fill .d with hot boiled rice. Along with t fresh tea arrives once more, and .hen each native guest will eat twt ?>owls of rice, and then another soak .d with tea. It is hard to see when enjoyment comes in.

THE NEWRY DISTRICT. (By "Leader" Reporter. The most successful farmers in the Newry district, are those who make a point of artificial'y water ing their crops every year .They have proved to their complete sa tis/action how fallacious is the idea that there is no need lor irrigati n m ..Gipps'and. On the contrary, their experience teaches that e en in the wettest seasons a profitable use can be made ot the irrigation plant. Every few- years Gipps land farmers suffer from long rainless autumns, in which the grass dries right up, all vegetation wilts, and the dairy herds, de prived ot succulent herbage, fall away heavily in the mi k yield.
