LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") A Melbourne girl writing from Lyons speaks of her visits to the shops, which are very beautiful and in which wares are attractively dis played, but she says one cannot help contrasting the life of the French shopgirl with that of the Melbourne girl, the wages and the hours being so different. In Lyons the shops open at seven in the morning and remain open until eight in the evening. Only j a few of the best shops close on Satur-1 day afternoon, and most of them are open on Sunday. The highest wage a girl reeeives is 15/ a week, which is vastly different to that obtainable here. My correspondent has also been shown through several large silk warehouses, and says that crepe de chine has been quite ousted by taf fetas, and that to be quite chic every thing must show a touch of tartan. An interesting piece of fashion news has come from Paris. Burglars car ried away from an emporium 500 cor sets in motor-cars. Articles are known to have been carried away fro...

CHINESE PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

CHINESE PROVERBS. » Proverbial sayings are as much a part of the Chinese daily language as they are of our own. These are somo good specimens:— There is many a good man under a shabby hat. He who has wealth and wine can never want a friend. Though you have money you can not buy what is not to sell. Even the Emperor has poor re lations. He who has wealth has cause to weep; he who has none may soundly sleep. The poor man must not murmur; and the rich man must not boast. A man with a good conscience Is not afraid when there Is a knock at the door at midnight. Do good regardless of consecjuen' ces. Fear not when men speak evil o« you; fear lest you should do evil. First put yourself right, then oth •rs. A man without a smiling faca must not open a shop. Cheap things are not good; goo# things are not cheap. Lend to one who won't repay, and you will provoke his dislike. Before you calculate on buying calculate on selling. She was the only child of a wealthy widow, and he was a poor but wi...

FOOTBALL. MOE v. WILLOW GROVE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

FOOTBALL. MOE v. WILLOW GROVE. (By Free Kick). A good crowd assembled on the picturesquely-situated sports ground at Willow Grove on Saturday last, which was the scene of a keenly contested match between a sports manlike team representing "The Grove" and a "gallant ten" from Moe. It required a deal of courage for the little Moe band to set forth on a journey of a dozen miles, through heavy rain, to encounter a team the dimensions and abilities of which they knew not. .Just as The Grove came in sight, the rain ceased, the sun shone brightly, a rainbow hung o'er the western horizon, and from the football field went up a mighty cheer to greet the "little ten." It is regrettable that the sporting element of the "young and active" of this town is in such a deplorable condition as to suffer ten good "sports" to fight a challenge from a neighbouring vil lage. No fewer than 20 promised to make the trip, and it is sad, indeed, to chronicle the absence of 50 per cent. From a sporting standpoi...

THE EDUCATION PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

THE EDUCATION PROBLEM. The Australian Catholic Federa tion is issuing a leaflet dealing with tbe system of State education in Victoria, and is also arranging for public meetings being held through out the important centres of the State, in order that the Catholic education claims may be placed be fore the general public. The Federation claims that a just system of State education should be acceptable to the whole of the citi zens who have to contribute to wards its cost. During the 40 years that the present system has been in vogue, Catholic taxpayers have received no return for over £4,500,000 contributed by them towards educational expenditure. They have also expended in the erection and maintenance of their own schools £2,000,000, and they ask that for the secular instruction imparted to children in Catholic schools an allowance should be made out of the moneys, which Catholic taxpayers have contribu ted, in order to provide free educa tion for their children. The Federation emph...

No Real Change. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

No Real Change. A well-known M.P. at a dinner-party the other day said of a Bill that he disliked: "I object to this hill because it would accomplish nothing. It would make no real change. It would be like the case of the actor and the canal boat-captain. "There was once upon a time an actor who, after an enforced idleness 01. two months, was lucky enough to secure an engagement in a town twen ty-five miles away. The case was a hurry-up one. The actor had to reach the distant town that night. If he failed to arrive, then his part would be assigned to some one else "Well, the man patched his worn boots, put his few belongings in a par cel, and set out in the early morning on foot along the tow-path. He had only a few coppers, hence the train was an impossibility. But after the poor fellow had covered some six or. seven miles, his boots gave out, blis ters rose on his feet, fatigue over came him, and in despair he threw himself on the grass beneath a tree. "As he lay there in a bitter...

%\lL BONG'S BENEFIT. AN AMUSING STORY OF A STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE. By Scudamore Jarvis. It seems quite the fashion nowa • days—said Private Coles as he look ed up from the newspaper he was using as a table-cloth, for blokes to suddenly disappear and leave no traces behind^em. Traces are about the only things they don't leave behind though—he went on—for if you read between the lines in these disappearance cases you'll find that when the feller did the silent get-away act he left at home a wife and six kids chargeable to the parish, a large crop of tailors' bills, or 'arf a dozen young ladies, all of whom he'd promised to marry. When you think over these things you come to the conclusion as a rule that the disappearance ain't so marvellous as you fancied and you can understand why the feller takes such a lot o' find ing. Talking o* disappearances reminds me '. Bill Bong what enlisted in '01, and did three hectic years in the regi ment afore what I'm going to tell you about happened. B...

PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 June 1914

'PROTECTING THE EYESIGHT. One of the greatest prejudices with which electric lighting has had to contend is the assertion that it is in jurious to the" eyesight, and the latest scare is that the ultra-violet rays of the tungsten lamp are harmful. The mere sound of the word "ultra-violet" seems to convey a terrifying impres sion to some people, who, perhaps, conjure up visions of-mysterious mal adies analogo s to' those which at tacked the early experimenters with the X-rays. All this alarm is, fortun ately, unfounded, for the emission of ultra-violet rays by some of the latest types of metal filament lamps merely increases their resemblance to the sun as a source of illumination. The pow erful new lamps, however, can be in jurious to the eyesight, in the same way as any other illuminant, by caus ing strain owing to glare. More than ever nowadays the science and art of illumination require to be carefully observed. In the days of the candle and the early gas burners the strain on the...
