OPPOSING FORCES ° " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the pri«e, And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink Won't Shrink Woollens. Lever Brothan Limitsd, Sydney. Hurry up! People want to get home to their tea.

AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES. (Extracts from Principals' Reports). DOOKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

AGRICULTURAL CO'LEGES. (Extracts from Principals' Reports). DOOKIE. When it is considered that over the whole Commonwealth, not 12,000,000 acres are under crops cut of a total of 1,903,731,840 acres, or 3,974,581 square miies^it gives some idea of the vastness of the country, a country even of greater area than the United States of America. It in spires every loyal citizen with the fact that the great blank areas must be populated. The most productive soils of some of tho older countries have been practically artificially created by the indomitable porsever ance of the agriculturalists throueh the centuries, and at grpat cost. In Europe the Italians and Dutch havo shown what can be done in this direction. In Victoria the Govern ment has done good work in reclaim ing rich swamp lands, and there is more to do. It has also made pos sible by its great irrigation ecli< men for trained irrigationists to make more than a competence in fruit growing, dairying, and other branches ...

PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. Dr. E. A. Abttou, ue»i ivuuwu ^ schoolboys as the author of the famous Latin grammar "Via Latina,' and as part-author of "English .Lessons for English People," has given his adher ence to the Oxford movement for the encouragement of pure English, and (says "The Daily Mail") has discussed the possibilities of the new society which has been formed with Dr. Bridges, the Poet Laureate, at its head. "If all the schoolmasters and mis tresses at elementary and public schools," said Dr. Abbott, who was a senior classic at Cambridge and a scholar and headmaster of the City of London School, "applied themselves to correcting certain obvious defects, I am sure a great improvement would re sult. What we particularly want to guard against is affectation which might result from the teaching in any pedantic way of the use of particular words, phrases, or pronunciations. But without pedantry we can try to get rid of many agreed faults. "I. have not been out of ...

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK, j By the ■ publication of what has been happily described in the preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com mittee of the Commonwealth Parlia ment has inaugurated the collected publication of the Historical Records of Australia. These "birth certifi cates" consist of a series of litho graphs of original documents connect ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Australia. First we have the oaths of office taken by Cap tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century „h<? sug gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and wlixh were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are disolwed in the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his oflicers had to take. Replicas of official documents connected with the establishment of the...

ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914

ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PL.BASE Correspondence between Colonel See ly, the Seerotai-y Tor War, and Lord Bsher, chairman of the County of Lon don Territorial Force Association, on the supply of horses for the Army was made , public by the War Office (says "The Daily Mail"). . - Lord Esher maintains ' that "On a ■ general mobilisation every available horse that could be purchased volun tarily would be required for tne Army. None would remain for the use of the Territorials." This Colonel Seely de scribes as a "complote delusion." Colonel Seely denies that the increase in motor vehicles has led to such a decrease in horses as to Jeopardise the success of a mobilisation. Arrange ments have been made for an annual | military census of the "horse popula tion." This enables the War Office each year to watch the variations. "To meet the total requirements of j ail the military forces on a general mobilisation," Colonel Seely says, "some 140,000 horses of all kinds are required: in Gre...

CHIUKET. While the thei mometer stood at 106 ii! tin* shade on Wednesday, another; stage. was advanced in connection viiii the Kozminsky shield, when Xiimhooia visited Nhill to uphold the prestige of the riverside team. The game proved most interesting, and : at on-* stage Dimboola looked like snatching a victory. Nhill put their best loom into the field, and in spite of the heat were keen on the game. It is on days such as Wednesday that our recusation reserve is uninviting to Iliopubic, with its absence of shade, con?; quently only enthusiasts were present to witness the contest. Mr Arthur Wilson, a veteran at the game, won the toss from Captain I Douglas, and elected to bat, being accompanied to the wickets by J. Hyde. Wilson, who is a steady bat, appeared to play the! bowling with confidence, and was piling on itins at anything loose sent down. Ilvde, after a pretty leg stroke for 4, was held by Kozminsky, one of N Mill's brilliant fieldsmen. Doney j lined his captain and runs c...
