SPORT AND WAR. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
SPORT AND WAR. To the Editor of the Express. Dear Sir,-In your last issue under the above heading, very pointed re ferencc was. made to the Gun Club neglecting the Call of the Empire. Your comment in the footnote-the unfairness of singling out the Gun Club-has evidently not been consid ered by your correspondent, who adopts the coward's principle (or rather, lack of principle) when he fails to sign his name to his letter. At all events, we consider that we are doing something towards ridding the district of a nuisance, at the same time providing ourselves with sport, whereas any member of other sporting clubs might easily be con sidered to be wasting time, when en gaged in their respective pastimes. Should your anonymous correspon dent be anxious to fit himself for active service, we would be pleased to assist him to learn to shoot, as this is the thing which counts most in time- of war. N. C. WILLS, President, Bacchus Marsh Gun Club. [It plight be added that four ,mem bers of the a...

TOOLERN 'VALE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A nice soaking rain has fallen, and 49 points were registered on Tuesday. The annual -Teams' match, be tween Toolern Vale and. Williams town Gun Clubs was held on King's Birthday, and was one of the most .enjoyable of the many meetings of these clubs. .

Of the four teams which competed, only three were equal to a possible five., Eight events were got off, and the 21 shooters who competed had a fine day's sport.

COMING EVENTS: Thursaay, June 24.-A.N.A. So cial, Bacchus Marsh. Wednesday, June 23.-Euchre party and dance, Rowsley. -: We gave a paragraph recently from' the Sydney "Bulletin," and stated at the time that Bacchus Marsh also had a casein factory. The following is another note from that paper:- "Moana": "Milo" as serts that a factory at Byron Bay (N.S.W.) is the only one in the world where a milk by-product is utilised for the purpose of making. casein. Wrong. At Edendale (M. '.) a big modern factory is turning out vast quantities of sugar of milk as well 'as the stuff mentioned by "Milo". Fortunately. for this fac tory it doesn't have to depend upon the demand for casein from Hog many, for sugar of milk is its long suit 'and it reaps a rich harvest through the price of this commodity slaving soared owing `to the war. "The bluenoses round Edendale don't waste much. First they make the -milk into cheese. Then they run the whey through separators and extract the small .percentage of c...

THE HOME CIRCLE. "THE AWKWARD AGE." [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
THE HOME CIRCLE. "THE AWKWARD AGE." The "awkward age". is a phrase commonly used to desr-ibe that time of life when young r iple are begin ning to "grow up." This stage of their existence is a veritable "awk wvLrd age" also for parents. Future happiness or misery often trembles in the balance during these critical years. in the young ones character is developing, and some trait of tem per or waywardness may be asserting itself. Sons and daughters are apt to be very disappointing at this period, for parents often desire too much. They are irritated and cannot hide chagrin when the brain of a boy does not come up to expectation, or good looks in a girl are not realised. So a gap is caused, and much danger lies in the rift widening to such a degree that it can never be drawn together again. The only hope depends upon the wisdom of the mother whop after carefully advising and paving the way to a right decision, knows how much to leave to the honor and good sense of her children. The you...

ADULTERATED CHAFF. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
ADULTERATED CHAFF. To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-I am a visitor to the Melton district, and to protect myself is the cause of my having to pen this letter. My grievance is in protest ation to the chaff mills being allowed to adulterate: chaff .without any cause for anxiety to the owners. At my place of abode there are five horses to be fed, and one expects to get value-for- money just now. Only the other day, chaff bought at top price fad to, e: sieved before giving to horses, to eradicate dust, &c., to say nothing of .-the mildewed lumps amongst it. On making inquiries in the Mel ton and Toolern districts, I was as tonished at the assertions made, di vulging that sweepings from the mnill floor, and chaff that had ,been bought in other districts was mildewed, end adhered to the bags to such an ex tent that it had to be pulled, off by hand before putting through the mixer. Now, this is not legitimate business, and calls for reform. I am equally surprised that the farmers...
SOME THINGS TO AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
SOME THINGS TO AVOID. There are a few things that a wom an should never be guilty of doing. She should never laugh when slight in; remarks are made about one of her own sex. She should never spealr of her efforts as "very well for a woman." She should never belittle her own sex by assuming ignorance of or a lack of interest in questions that are of vital importance to thou sands of other women. A woman with an assured place in society can help those less happily situated by a frank air of comradeship. She can help those who are struggling for a liveli hood by giving work and speakiing of woman can find ways constantly to help other women in one way or an other.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
There is plenty of mud about since the rain. It wad not a heavy rain, but nice, soft, warm and soak ing. It was much needed after the heavy wind. It should have the effect of carrying the crops on for a considerable time to come. They are doing splendidly at present, but. the grass is coming on very slowly. Rainfall for the week,ll20 points. It came in a very opportune timea,to. assist vegetation after the heavy dry ing winds. It has made the roads ,in a very -bad state, and the cost of their repair is now apparent to everyone. Some metal screenings have been used on the footpaths in front of the Mechanics' Institute and the post-office. It proves better for a path than gravel, as it sets very firm, is dry underfoot, and there are no big stones to work through. We hope to see some more of it used on the bad places. The Melton creek is agaii- run ning slowly.. It is some time since *there was sufficient water to make it flow. A much needed improvement has been effected by cutting .aw...
THE IMPARTIAL WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
THE IMPARTIAL WOMAN. She does not take sides. She is al ways ready to look at a matter from every point of view. If you got to her with a long complaint of Kitty's spite ful temper, she will-not side with you all the way, and then when she meets Kitty 'take her part in turn. She will listen to;-you, sympathise with you, soothe y6uir wounded feelings. But she: will"point out to you Kitty's side of the. question too. There is nothing partisan about her. She is broad minded enough to take in all points of view, and firm enough to sum them up impartially.

A resident has asked us what the people are going to do to show their appreciation of the local men who have fallen at the front; and sug gested that in the meantime a United Church' service be held in the Mechanics' Institute. This could probably be ar...
THE SOLDIERS' SAYING: "THEY HAVE GONE WEST." [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 June 1915
THE SOLDIERS' SAYING: "THEY HAVE GONE WEST." The soldiers at the front oft say, When comrades fall from day to. day, "They have gone west." With tear and 'sigh, they give a thought To those, who thro' the fight have sought To do their best. It means true faith, this "going west," In better days, and perfect rest, This "going west." To wearied sons of British race,.. Who had the throes of war to face, The "west" means rest. We wail the dead, the dear, the lost, Who have the darkest river crost, May they reach rest, Who gave their lives 'in righteous cause,. Defence of honour, and of laws, Now gone far "west."
