SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

SUCCESS. Success shall come to Ulm who waits; But not to Uim of folded hands (To him who hopes, but hesitates, . And simply by the roadside stands. Success is won by effort strong, By unremitting, earnest stress. The ray It travels seems o'er-long? To haste 'its course, go, meet Suc cess! Why waste the time to drift and swing And watch the careless billows roll, Relying that some chance will bring You somehow some day to your goal? Far 'better that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring breeze, You man the sweeps, and mile by miler You still advance across the seas. Go, meet Success! For not enough' That you should patience have alone. Up signal! Oil! Though fields be rough, 'Tis those shall reap who first liave sown. Each day some little progress make; Lean not on trustful idleness. Another route. So meet Success! Lest, ere it reaches you, it take

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. Thcro waB a boy, and his father ( said unto him, "My son, work to i day, for the time cometh when you | must leave school." And ho said, "Yea, father I will study this even I ing." But a chum came round, and ; in the heat of "knuckle-up" the jes . pons were forgotten. So on the mor I row he broke down iu translation, land was Boundly swished; and more* I over, at the year"s end he got no | \ rize. Years passed, and a great man I said to him, "Young man, come round j to my office in the morning and i will make you my hireling, and you : shall amass much wealth." But on the morrow the youth said, "I will 1 go alter lunch, for my stomach . cricth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.110. And when he showed himself at the ottlce, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach-yea, even one v,\.o bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do it now." Then lu the fulness of time the young man loved a maid, and lie .said: "Behol...

CHAPTER XXVII. A Bolt from'the Blue. . I The trial began at tho Old Bailey Bomo months after tho magistrates liad decided to submit tho charge to n superior court.. Within the court tho atmosphere was heavy. The lamps burned sullen ly, shadows gathered in corners, yet thero was little about tho groups in the well of tho court suggestive of tho fact that a man, and a peer of the realm, was about to bo tried for his life. The many barristers, ali who could spare time from their own affairs to bo present at this cause culchro, wore there, talked with much animation, if in subdued tones, their heads together lilte so many cauli flowers-some with their hands clasp en under their gowns looking vastly like ravens or big crows. Now and then a langli made Gwendolen, seal ed in a corner of the court, Miss Duni ford at her side, wince and quiver.

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have 'been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to test the effect of feeding on the quality and size of eggs to find out liow to produce the biggest eggs, Three lots of ducks were fed on flesh, iish and vegetables. Those fed on the fish diet laid the greatest num ber of eggs, -but they were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid by those fed on the flesh diet, whilst those fed on pure grain diet also beat the fish-fed birds both for quality and weight of egg. The American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed 011 grain with a small-percentage ot! flesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging of insect and such like life has a deteriorating effect on tl\e quality of the egg, and they are also unanimous in the finding that too much green food has a similar effect on the quality and weight of an egg. It is on this account that they agree that the Asiatic brown-tinte...

THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High' and Noble Calling. Agriculture is the only life's job to which the Creator over directly set a man. He put Adam in the garden of Eden "to dress and keep it." Conse quently, the Mayor of the English town of Windsor was not far wrong ccrtalnly ho was not guilty of affecta tion-when, in the course of his open ing remarks at the Royal Counties Show the other day, ho spoke of "the sacred cause of agriculture." We are not to confine the word "sa cred" to matters that touch upon man's future state merely. Anything that intimately concerns man's pres ent happiness and well'being may be so called. Anything that is high and noble; anything that can be exalted in the conception and the doing; any thing that conduces to the best in man and the best in his surroundings may 'be called sacred. All this may truly be said of the cultivation of the soil and husbandry at its best. It is not easy for a farmer always to reme.nvber this. One is not always in a d...

Coalville's Coal Resources. PAST HISTORY AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

Coalville's Coal Resources. HIdfORY AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES. Now that tho residents of Coal ville havo ehown their intention of setting the wheels of progress in motion regarding the slack coal seams of its mines, and in view of the fact that this move haB received tliu sympathy and blessings of our civic fathers, tho following facts ro tating to tho doings of this one time prosperous corner of the shiro will bo of interest. In the first place it will be re membered that tho construction of the present Narracan Valloy railway was mainly owing to the discovery of valuable coal seams in the dis trict. Extensive tests proved to bo beyond expectations and tho value of the discovery can be imagined when it is taken into account that tho Victorian Railways wore at this time dependent upon N.S.W. for tho whole of its coal supplies at a cost approaching £2 per ton. Tho con struction of the line was at first only authorised bb far as the scene of the coal discovery. The district boon made r...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914

In Perth, Macdonald found his fears amply confirmed, so to London he went, angry with himself that he had been so easily hoodwinked, ibut grimly determined to .bring JBlakeley to book. During the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance, and the working of the stock markets generally, through the medium of the ship's library. So, when ono line after noon ho pushed open the ornate swing door which admitted to tho office of the company, ho was fully primed for a stormy Interview with Blakeley. He found himself In a large, lofty'apart ment, furnished with hlghly-pollshed and obviously expensive olllco fittings. To his left -was a glass-panelled door, labelled "Private," doubtless the en trance to Blakeley's sanctum. The solo occupant of tho room was a young lady, dressed neatly In black, who was seated at a table with a typewriter in front of her and a tele phone-receiver at her elbow. At John's entrance she laid aside a news paper she had been reading and re garded him...

Blakely had departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents (or tho prosecution of his 'big scheme in his possession, and Macdonald, now with plenty ot fundB in hand, had thrown himself ljeart and soul into tho task of developing the mine. Ho had engaged as his chief assistant a smart young engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whOBe lack of practical experlenco was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a boundless enthusiasm, which ho had tho faculty of Imparting to the minors under his charge. So far, however, ! their united efforts at locating tho reef had ibeen no more successful tliau Macdonald's previous ones. They had bored and tunnelled in various direc tions from tho main shaft, and al though no hint of tho precious ore had been revealed, at least tho pass ages, under Forrest's Bkilful guidance, were masterpieces of underground construction. The lad was justly proud of them. Blakoloy cabled tho news of his ar rival In London....

V. Since Macdonald left, the mine a brief weekly cablegram had arrived at the office, reporting the progreBB that bad been made, but indicating nothing calculated to cheer the hearts of shareholders. The latest one had been received flvo days preceding Macdonald's appearance in London, and ho had immediately "wired back to Forrest for further news. Threo days after tho Bpurt in the market tbero was still no reply to blB mess age. Ho was beginning to despond, and said a- to Emma; but sho had somehow developed a profound and cheerful optimism regarding tho mine's future.

0 Argyle Mansions, Battorsea. August 2nd, 19X0. Dear Betty,-William, Alt and 1 think it only right that you should know about father and mother. The farm's been doing very badly of late, and they can't keep up the interest on the mortgage. I'm very much afraid it will mean the workhouse for them unless you can afford to do something really substantial. If so, you'd better meet us at Rosedale Farm to-morrow afternoon at five o'clock. If you're not there I shall take It you're not willing, but I may 3B well tell you than I can do nothing to help the old people, and -I expect Prudence keeps a tight hold on Wil liam's money, and I don't see what Alt can do; so that you seem to be the only hope. And as, judging by all accounts, you must be coining money, I hope you'll do your duty. We've seen very little of one another, you and I, of late years, but I think you know what a strong objection poor Bert always bad to play-actresseB, and It was only natural I should side with him.
