SHEPPARTON ON FRIDAY NIGHT. THUNDERSTORM AND HAIL. THE DESTRUCTION IN THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

SHEPPARTON ON FRIDAY NIGHT. THUNDERSTORM AND HAIL. THE, DESTRUCTION IN THE DISTIRIOT. There was an hour's silence on Friday evening, when at about a quarter to 7 there was a great flash in the northweetern sky, followed by a deepening rumble as if a thousand muffled drume had been brought into play. This continued for several minutes, when all at once an aerial cannonading com meoced, and from the sky, which had assumed ebon blackness, the rain descended in torrents It seemed as if all the Plnvian strength had been gathered together for the deluge, without any forewarning drizzle. For quite half an hour the rain continued, with inter mittent descents of hail that rattled on the roofs and spread over the streets in thick profusiop, whiten ing them in a manner that shone fantastic when the reflection of the lightning that was flsshing freely swept over them. Then the thunder began to pound away more furiously and the lightning blaze up the entire arch of heaven, while great and tortuo...

REMEMBER WHEN YOU GET CLEMENTS TO C¢ YOU GET HEALTH TOO! A PROFESSIONAL NURSE well known throughout Western Australia, writes her opinion, NURSE ALICE WILKINSON, 21 Hyde Street, Nth. Perth, sends this letter: "I have spent many years in my profession as a nurse, both here and in Victoria. I have nursed the sick of all descriptions, and some have been very low and weak, The question always arises in the mind of the nurse what is the best medicine for a • patient when thoroughly run down or to keep them from getting low and prostrated. Fromyearsof experience and close observation I can say I know of no medicine as good as CLEMENTS TONIC as a nerve food and appetising medicine, creating a desire for nourishment. It quickly gives health and strength. (Signed) NURSE WILKINSON." No truer letter was ever written to women than this one rovienug the heallhhul properties or thsrmazali edchle.

OUR REAL SAFEGUARD. ONE of the. many things learned by Sir George Reid during his term of oflico as High Commies.

THE PRE-ELECTION BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

THE PRE-ELECTION BALLOT. MiEMBERS of the Liberal leagues have had no more important duty to discharge than the approaching selection of six of the seventeen aspirants who are anxious to carry the partycolors,should a double dis solution be granted. It is of vital importance that the pre-election should fairly represent the Liberal thought and Liberal senti ment of the whole State. Even if some one wing carried its own men to the exclusion of all others, Liberals generally would accept the mandate of April next when the actual etection came. But a very large, though quite uncertain, per centage of the electors is neither Liberal nor Labor, and its ever doubtful verdict will declare them selves. The pre-election poll will decide whether Victoria is to be represented or to be misrepresen ted in the next Parliament. If miembers of the leagues realise that, they will give serious attention to the casting of their votes. They are a minority of the electors whom Liberalism must poll, if it...

AUSTRALIAN SWIMMING GIRLS. RUSH FOR A STAGE OPENING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

AUSTRALIAN SWIMMING GIRLS. * -4--- BUSH FOR A STAGE OPENING. The old reproach that the young people of Melbourne were not masters of the art of swimming in sufficient numbers does not appear to have any foundation at the pre sent time, for an advertisement for "attractive young ladies who can swim," in connection with the water spectacle in " Come Over Here" at Her Majesty's resulted in a remarkable scene at the theatre on Thursday afternoon. Long be fore the advertised hour, two o'clock, the vicinity of the stage door was crowded with young ladies, who overflowed on to the roadway, streamed into the various entrances of the theatre, and so effectively held up the business of the managerial offices that three able-bodied constables were iequi sitioned to keep the crowd within the limits of the stage door. Alto gether four hundred ladies of all .ages and qualifications, put in an appearance during the afternoon; and Mr Weed, the American pro ducer of the water spectacle in the revue,...

Considerably summariced, his Lord ship said: The careful studEnt of the Old Teelstament found it full of forcible illustrations of his present lifo; that was due to the true insight which it gave of human nature. This was specially notieoahblo in publio matters. We bo came aoccustomed to any given state of things, but if not sa'iefied, grumbled that somebody ought to improve in them.

I KIALLA WEST HARVEST FESTIVAL. AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH "A BASKET OF SUMMER FRUIT." A very successful Harvest Festival wes held at the Kialla WVest Presbyterian Church yesterday afternoon. The build Ieg was tastefully decorated, especially at the rostrum and immediate surround ings, where the arrangement of cereals. fruit and other produce displayed effee tive contrasts in color, adding very con siderably to the beauty of the scene. The choir rendered two anthems, with Mrs J M MI Nabb at the organ; while the preacher was the Rev Geo Paul. The tezt was Amos vii, 2, "What seest thou ? And I.caid, A basket of summer fruit." Put briefly, Mr Paul said:--Tho harvest marks the end of the natural year. It recalls many a fair vision, like that upon which the pro phets eyes rested, that has passed away. Our eyes have feasted and our hearts have been gladdened, not only by the evidences of God's goodness in harvest, but also by the many tokens of His loving kindnesses and tender mercies. 1....

THE EVENING DISCOURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

THE EVENING DISCOUnPSE, At the evening service the Bishop took up what was practically *a con tinuance of the discourse on the parable of the Prodigal, which is being dealt with in a series of Lenten sermons by the Rlev N. D. Horring, the rector of the parish, His Lordship's text was St. Luke, xv, 17: "'And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired ser vants of my father's have bread enough, and to spare, and I perish with hunger!" The Bishop said that the prodigal was the son of well-to-do parents who, com og into money, proceeded to enjo3 life. He formed bad company, and exompli fled the old adage about the fool and his money being soon parted. When his money was gone, his friends had no further use of him. He then drifted into the gutter, found employment in the feeding of pigs, and lived on pig's food. That was a common experienbe. Young people brimming over with lifo, lacked experience and foresight, and the sense of responsibility. People possess ing good looks, money, ...

PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 30 March 1914

PERSONAL. The loss of a leader is always very regrettable, and so it was to the members of St Augustine's Church of England, Maudeastreet, when they learned that Miss Fullarton had definitely decided to return to her home in Melbourne, There was no more loyal chorister than she, none more appreciated, whoso services were invaluable, and whoso beautiful soprano voice it was a real pleasure to hear. As leader of the choir Miss Fullar. ton vneatos a place it will be hard to fill; and besides her intimate association with church work she was always ready to give her assistance in the cause of charity, or for the benefit of various local organisations, At the close of the service at St Augeistine's last evening, the members of the choir assembled in the vestry, when the Rev N D Herring, the reotor, referred in highly com plimentary, but befitting, terms to thte splendid services rendered by Miss Fullarton, and thbo regret that everybody felt at her deparlure.

THE FISHERMAN AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914

THE FISHERMAN. AT HOME. Dear father took a fishing trip. He has rheumatic pains And various symptoms of the grip. He never once complains. For life at present seems to hold SAll joy that he could wish. He nearly caught a fish. He doesn't mind a little cold. He tells about it while we stand And stare with wondering eyes. It nearly chewed off father's hand, So fearful was its size. It winked at him and tried to sing, And waved a findo in play. It did a hornpipe and a fling And then it swam away. In museums I have stood around And viewed the monsters o'er, Which' in the ages past were found Disporting near the shore. These curious creatures are for me With scant importance fraught; But, oh, the fish I long to see . That father nearly caught!

QUESTION TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914

QUESTION TIME, In reply to Or F W Fiir, Mr Maloney said he was in favor of elective Ministries. Cr Mitchell was against, on the ground that it was impossible to take into confi dence political opponents. The thing sounded very well in theory, but would not work in practice. With the existing system the Go: vernment and the individual mem bers of it were ever alive to their responsibilities, knowing that if any of them erred it would be fatal to the Government. With an elec tive Ministry the effect would be different. In reply to Cr Fair, Or Mitchell said be was not in favor of initia tive referendum, because it would always be in favor of the cities with their larger population, for the success of such a referendum depended on the strength and com pleteness of organisation. Mr Maloney was also- opposed to the initiative referendum. Mr 0 Palling asked if the candi dates were in favor of Scripture reading in the State schools, and i they were in favor of a separate' grant to Roman Cat...

MR MALONEY'S ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 April 1914

MR MALONEY'S ADDRESS, Mr Maloney (who was also received with applause), said that although he was not well known in Shepparton he had some credentials to support his can didature. He had been a resident of the electorate since his elec torate; and could claim to be a public man, having represented one part of the electorate for a quarter of a century in Echuca; was at present a member of the Numurkah Shire Council ; and had represented the northern shires of the ;municipal exeoutive of Vic torian for a number of years, up to two years ago, when Or Lancaster was elected in his place. He men tioned these things not in a spirit of egotism; but just to give some justification for his present can didature (Hear hear). He was there as a supporter of the Watt Ministry, because that Ministry had proclaimed itself a country Ministry, as intending to do all it could in the interests of the country, and in future legislation to place the welfare of the agriculturists in the forefront.
