NAMBRO[?]. ("Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 24 March 1914
NAMBRO::. (" Times.") Like most districts in Victoria at ,resent, the farmers and graziers desire a fall of rain, particularly the latter; although not a great deal of inconvenience has been causel so far, beyond a scarcity of water for household 'purposes. For stock the residents rely on the wells. A never fai.ing supply of water can be got at 15ft. to 25ft. anywhere in the district, and as the district was nrever as well stocked with hay. straw and grainm, this part would not fare so badly if dry weather did continue as it did in 1907 and 1908. In fact a dry 'season would suit most farmers They would be able to clear away some of the stacks that have sc cumulated during the past two or three good seasons. The price of fered to hay and oats up to now (has been be:ow cost price, and con sequently, farmers had no a!terna tive but to hold out for a better and more payable prices. The threshing operations are nut yet complete. Mr. F. Hammill will probably finish this week, and Messrs. ...

FEDERAL ISSUES. MR. FISHER'S CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 March 1914
FEDERAL ISSUES._ MR. FISHER'S CAMPAIGN. In opening an electioneering cam paign a Labor leader is heavily handicapped. The,Policy he has to announce is always that of the Party determined by the wirepul lers of the Leagues in conference assembled, and duly published for -theinformation of friend and toe alk~e. All theni that' Mr. Fisher could do wheni on Monday he opened his platform campaign in the Town Hall, was to show ex actly what points in the official pohlicy of the Opposition he and those in closest touch with him i> tend to stress. Preference to unionists in its cru dest, most extreme form, is.to be pushed to the front. There is to be no truce with the wage earner who deliberately remains outside his union. "Men who. are .non unionists are.mostly the sneaks ot society," was Mr. Fisher's uncom promising utterance, and his words give 'the indepexident worker an. idea 'of what he may expect if La bor secures another lease of office. Passing the merits or demerits of preferen...
REVEALS COMPLEXION. SECRET OF THE SPANISH LADY TELLS HOW THEY KEEP THEIR YOUTHFUL COMPLEXION EVEN AT SEVENTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 March 1914
REVEALS COMPLEXION4 SECRET OF THE SPANISH LADY TELLS HOW THEY KEEP THEIR YOUTH FUL COMPLEXION ( S EVEN AT 6EVENTY. "As a ybung girl," writes one of our r'eaders, "I always had a nice clear and delicately tinted com plexion, but on reaching the age of thirty it changed completely. The chilly winter winds and the rain knade my skin rough and dry; my fice used to burn and smart horribly after the slightest ex posure to cold or frost. I felt dreadful worried to see the awful change that was taking place. About this time I went for a trip abroad, and while travelling in the south ot Spain, became .intimate with an elderly Spanish lady. : Knowing how proud the Spanish girls are of their skin, and hoping she would help me, I told er my trouble, She advised me to ob tain two ounces of rose water, one dram tincture of benzoin, and two ounces of ordinary flowers of ox zoin from the chemist, which, she said, I could kmix myself, and after shaking it well, apply with a little cloth or sponge.

[?]ERALANG RABBIT LEAGUE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 27 March 1914
?ERALAWNz RABBTT LEAOU5L Ameeting of the above was held on Saturday, 21st inst., when pnem bers reported the result of the pol soning, which was satisfactory, and by the way many worked for the comparatively small number ot rabbits they got, they deserve to keep the pest down. Another ra ther 'difficult matter was the fixing of the boundary of the league, as many more leagues are likely to come into existence. It was deci ded to fix it on the parish boun dary, but by no means hard and fast, as, owing to the nature of the country, it would be more workable to accept members from outside the boundary, providing it is the most convenient league to join. The same applies to menm bers within the boundary. It has been suggested by an adjoining league to appoint delegates from the different leagues to fix the different boundaries. But all things considered, this league was of the opinion that the boundary, as fixed, would suit the adjoining league. and any new leagues would come in accordi...
