She Would Be Revenged. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

She Would Be Revenged. A party of vegetarians paid a visit to the country, and, after a few hours' ramble in the woods and fields, pro posed to finish up their hitherto pleas ant outing by a picnic tea-party. After getting comfortably seated co the spread on the grass, they were slightly disturbed. A bull made his appearance in a rather hasty manner, spreading confusion amongst the party, each trying to get over the stile first. One old lady ran, panting, behind, reaching the stile only just in time to save herself by scrambling through it and falling in a heap on the other side/ On regaining her fepf, she turn ed to the bull and breathlessly ex claimed: "That's your gratitude, is it? I haven't eaten a bit of beef for the last two years; but I'll make ' for it now, you ungrateful creature!'

No Approval. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

No Approval. A Sheffield merchant, whose daugh ter had married a man with whom it proved she could not get on very well, was very much surprised some weeks later to see the young lady re turn home with all her belongings. The old man listened very attentive ly to her story, and then went to his desk and wrote a note to his son-in law, which he gave to his daughter, assuring her that her husband would receive her kindly after this. The pair, on reading the letter, found the following notice:— "Dear Sir.—Goods having been se lected of one's own free will at my es tablishment are not taken back again. The young couple laughed, and were reconciled.

BOYS WHO DID THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

BOYS WHO DID THINGS. Some of the greatest achievements in the world have been made by youth and it will always he so in hu man history. David, the sweet singer .of Israel, was a shepherd, a poet, and a general before he was twenty, and a king at the age of eighteen. Ra phael had practically completed hits life-work at the age of thirty-seven. He did no great artistic work after that age. .Tames Watt, even as a boy, as he watched the steam coming out of the tea-kettle, saw in it the new world of mechanical power made pos sible by the old element turned and driven by a simple appliance. Cortes was master of Mexico before he was thirty-six. Schubert died at the age of thirty-one, after having composed what may perhaps be call ed in some ways the most entrancing melody ever written. Charlemagne was master of France and the great est emperor of the world at the agf of thirty. Shelley wrote "Queen Mah" when he was twenty-one, and was ? master before lie was twentv-five. Patrick Henry was ...

A SUBSTITUTE FOR WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

A SUBSTITUTE FOR WOOD. The steadily increasing price of ' timber in Europe has caused interest . to be centred in a French invention for preparing a substitute for this ar ticle. "The process is very simple and inexpensive the whole process of ^manufacture being carried out by a single machine. The inventor Mon sieur Carre associated with the cham pagne industry embarked upon his task with a view of preparing an efficient and cheap substitute for packing the bottles of wine as well as the cases which at present are made of wood and the cost of which is persistently rising. The first ex periments were made five years ago, and recently some excellent speci mens of the substitute have been pro duced. The material used in this process is straw. The waste is first • split longitudinally by a special cutting device to destroy the resiliency in the stalk. The ripped material is then placed in the machine, together with certain ingredients, being laid upon a travelling plate. The latter is ...

MR. JAMES COMERFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

MB. JAMES COMERFORD. It is our painful duty to record the death of an esteemed colleague in the realm of country journalism in the person of Mc James Edward Comerford, pro prietor of the " Nagambie Times." Some few weeks back—about a fortnight—we recorded the fact that Mr Comerford had met with what then appeared to be a minor accident. He was riding a bicycle in Higb-street, Nagambie, when the machine skidded and he landed heavily on his thumb, with the result that the bone was badly fractured. Mr Comer ford's injury was attended to by the local surgeon, and he then proceeded to Mel bourne, ostensibly for the purpose of engaging a man to fill the editorial chair of the "Times" during his incapacity and also with the object of seeking the highest medical advice in regard to his injury. Unluckily, he experienced 6ome difficulty in securing a desired sub stitute, and it was some three days before he called on Dr Syme to have his injury attended to. By this time the arm was badly swoll...

DR. WOODROW WILSON'S ANECDOTE. Electrifying a Western Audience. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

UK. WOODROW WILSON'S ANECDOTE. ■Electrifying a Western Audience. Governor Wilson, the scholarly De mocratic candidate for the American Presidency, enjoys a good anecdote much, and the telling of it better. His private secretary is an amusing young man, with a name which seems to leap from the pages of some popular novelist. Tumulty he is called. The other day Dr. Wilson was chat ting at his seaside home with die corps of newspaper correspondents, and Tumulty egged on the Governor to relate a story which electrified a popular .Western audience a few weeks ago. "We had been discuss ing the problem of the high cost of living," said Dr. Wilson, "and I had remarked that what we needed to do was to find a solution. Then this story popped into my head, and I couldn't resist telling it. It was one of those hypothetical questions which the English weeklies are so fond of printing with the query, 'What would you do in the same circumstances?' "The hypothesis was this: A young man had come to ...

OBITUAR Y MR. J. P. MORRISSY. One of the mo3t popular and well known identities in the district died at his home, Wahring, on the 3rd insb, in the person cf Mr J. P. Morrissy. De ceased, who had always enjoyed good health and had a robust constitution, was taken ill about a fortnight ago, and Dr. Davies, of Nagambie, who was in con stant attendance, diagnosed the case as a creneral breaking up of the system, due to advanced age.

I.O.R EXCURSION. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

I.O.R EXCURSION. This excursion—special train from Rush worth to Murchison—promoted by the Rechabites in connection with their annual picnic at Murchison, was run as usual on Easter Monday. The train, which left Rushworth at 9.30 in the morning, had about 300 excursionists aboard, there being a falling off in the number owing to the Railway Department putting the brain back half an hour in the evening, thereby causing such a long wait after dark Nevertheless, those who availed themselves of the trip had an en joyable time on the river, and the usuil pleasures of picnic3 were indulged in. Races were provided for the little folk, and the Bohemian-District cricket match proved an attraction for many. A few tried fishing, bub very few piizes were secured. The committee are to be com mended on their efforts for the conveni ence and pleasure of excursionists.

Question of Appropriateness. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 17 April 1914

Question of Appropriateness, "In your sermon tliis morning you spoke of a baby as 'a new—wave on the ocean of life.'" "Quite so—a poetical figure." "Don't you think 'a fresh squall' would have hit the mark better?" Education begins the gentleman, but reading, good company, and re flection must finish'him. The man who is bluffing his way through the world is hated most bit terly and despised most deeply by the man who is trying without success to do the same thing. O.ne of the most pitiful mistakes young girls make in regard to mar riage is the not infrequent sacrifice of themselves in the belief that they will be able to reform dissipated lives. How many broken hearts have follow ed mistaken efforts of this Sort to save a man from drunkenness or other de basing follies, none of us can evv reckon. The total daily water consumption of Melbourne is set down at 38,000,000 gallons. The Yan Yean reservoir is at present very low, and unless there is shortly a good fall of rain the position...
