As the case involved an import ant point, that affected many deal ings, it was .heard by consent, in Melbourne, before Mr. Goldsmith, P.M. Dr. T. P.

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915

MORAL REFLECTIONS. The strength of a lie is in its re semblance to the truth. The, man who cannot forgive any mortal thing is a green hand in life. It is everyone's duty to have books; ,a library is not a luxury, but one of the necessaries of life. Cast -forth thy act, thy word, into the ever-living, ever-working universe; it is a seed-grain that cannot die. Nothing is easier than fault-finding; no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no" character are required to set up in the grumbling business. When the last hour of youth is gone, with its opportunities for preparation neglected and unimproved, there Mis nothing that can be done to repair the harm. No man can help another if he con stantly sees the worst in him. His words and his very presence help to bring out that worst, and thereby to push him still lower. No single great deed is comparable for a moment to the multitude of lit tle gentleness performed by those who scatter happiness on every side and strew all life with hope and ...

WEEDS AND THEIR SUPPRESSION [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915

WEEDS AND THEIR SUPPRESSION. It is said that weeds, like the poor, are always with us, and anyone travel. ling through the country has plenty of evidence of this fact before his eyes. In many fields the paddocks are spot ted - with the ?bnoxious intruders, in some places they appear in large pat ches, robbing the crops of sunshine, moisture and nourishment. For their suppression, the hoe -must be kept continually at work, and the expense of the labor is amply repaid. But in addition to the hoe, there are various measures which may be taken to wage successful war against the enemy. As the British Board" of Agriculture points out in its leaflet, the most ob vious remedy is to prevent the seed ing of weeds. When it is recognised that an ordinary charlock plant pro duces more than 1000 and a moderate sized poppy at least 10,000 to 15,000 seeds, the force of the adage that "one year's seeding is seven years' weed ing". is obvious. Further, as many weeds produce seeds which do not germina...

DONT'S FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915

DONT'S FOR GIRLS. Don't wear anything you can't pay for. Don't dress to outdo your neigh bors. Don't wear smart dresses with un tidy underclothing. Don't go out with a button missing from glove or shoe. Don't wear high heels if you wish to walk gracefully. Don't use a pin where a hookl and eye or a stitch would do. Don't dress like your brothers, and think men admire it. Don't buy cheap finery-it is extra vagant in the long run. Don't forget that shabby gloves and shoes spoil the handsomest toilet.

SHEEP FOR THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 29 May 1915

SHEEP FOR THE FARM. All who start in a new business, writes Mr. B. F. Mitchell, as a rule, experience much suspense and fre quent disappointment, and a little in formation from others may be useful, if it be obtained from those who have 'to use a current phrase) gone through the mill. Professor Lowrie emphasises what has often been strongly urged, that to. make 'farms or selections pay and give the most satisfactory results keeping sheep must be coupled with farming. -.Indeed, mere wheat growing is not farming. In all other countries, stock and til lage go togeherl on well-regulated farms, and the same principles are equally as important to our holders. Land in this state as well as in others is gradually but surely becoming more valuable, therefore dearer.\to holders, and rents and taxes are ever increas ing. To meet these ever-increasing demands, it behoves all settlers to consider well what will give the best and quickest returns. The first mat ter to be studied is the nature of ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 5 June 1915

THE Hague Peace Congress, from which much was expected as an Arbitration Court to prevent war, has never even been alluded to in the present struggle. It may be tried to arrange terms of peace. It is time that speculations to that effect appeared in newspapers and magazines. The campaign itself is a long way off settlement, yet the attrition is becoming so ex hausting that it must-be having a deterring effect among all the com batants. THE Werribee Council appears to be making a success of its electric lighting scheme, for which Mr. Crowley deserves credit. The sub ject should not be lost sight of in Bacchus Marsh or Ballan. Messrs. McPhail Bros. will hold their usual monthly market here to day. The crops are making good pro gress, considering the high winds we have had for the week, and are now nicely covering the ground. Rain is again looked for.

SPORT AND WAR. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 5 June 1915

SPORT AND WAR. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,--The list of volunteers for the front from this district, which you publish, is interesting, and makes one feel proud of those who have responded to the call of Em pire. But what is it when compared to the record of Swan Hill, .when we read that 240 have gone from that district, and not enough left to form a football association. On Monday next, we read, we are to be subjected to the rattle of guns of our so-called sports, . attacking sparrows and starlings! What can be thought of these young fellows in the club who, living selfish lives, will neither do their duty by taking unto themselves wives, or-go to the front at the imperative call for "More Men." Would they not be better employed in ridding the earth of a pest which is greater than the birds they are out to shoot ? It is estimated there are over 100 young men in this town, without ties, who could and ought. to be eager to offer their services to the Empire at the present crit...
