THE FISHERMAN AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 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 . All 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 11n in play. It did a hompipe and a fling And then it swam away. In museums I have stood around And viewed the monsters o'er, Which in the nges 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!

Swan Hill Guardian PUBLISHED MONDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS. THURSDAY, APRIL 2, 1914. SWAN HILL FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
PUeaLasD- MO0NDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS. THURSDAY, APRIL 2, 1914. SWAN HILL FIRE BRIGADE. Perhaps it is not as generally known as 'it should be that Swan Hill pos sesses a fire brigade which for eflici ency and. ability may be classed as second to- no country brigade in the State. It may be thought that that irs a rather sweeping assertion to inake, but the brigade's performances at the recent Bendigo demonstratiori justify its claim to be ranked in the highest class, and particularly so when all the ccrcumstances surrounding the position ore known. De spite the fact that th& brigade was up against the reme de la creme of practically the whole of Vic toria,- it more than held its own, and the triophies it brokight back are ample evidence of the fact. It was in the field against the pickeUmiien of about one hundred and fifty brigades, but nevertheless it finished up with a record of which it -and Swan Hill should be justly proud. Its record, too, is all the-more praiseworthy ...
PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. About whose proud and famous name, this day, Are you adream? Your silken lashes seem Heavy with secrets your red; lips would say: Around your placid brow what rever les play - Their Merlin tune, In this light-hearted noon Of girlhood, with its green and golden May? Within your gentle, rosy-finger hands Where lilies sleep, Great destinies you keep- Thrice happy he who kneels to your commands! From that gold disarray, your crown, what strands Shall gleam anew Some distant day, when you Wrap round a smaller head these fillet bands! What though the stealthy years en croach, you'll wait With your slow smile, A brief, imperious whlle, Dreamink white dreams till Love smiles from the gate Then, in the darkling years, may kindly Fate* This solace lend My dim eyes, and forfend That gracious, gradual end to youth's estate W. G. Tlnckom-Fernandez in Febru ary "Smart Set."
THE VALUE OF PHOSPHATES. ADVANTAGES SUMMARISED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
'THE VALUE OF PHOS PHATES. ADVANTAGES- SUMMARISED. Practical experience and numerous ex periments have:(says the "Journal of Agriculture") clearly demonstrated the benefit resulting from -the iuse of phoa phates on Australian soils Among the maxiy adantages accrumigi from their use uiay be mentioned- 1. They supply.an essential mineral plant food which is most likely to 1ie lacking iu ordinary soils. Any soil deficiency in this ingredient leads to starved crops and starved crass, and the stockgrazinm on phosphate starred grass cannot remain profitable to their owners. 3. The sbluble phosphates have a most stimulating iniluence on the development of the ybung root system. This is apparent from the remarkable start given to young wheat crops when.superphos phate is drilled in with the.seed. This early start does much to secure the wheat plant against drought. 3. The feeding value of pastures manur ed with phosphates is greatly. increased. A striking illustiation of thie may now be see...

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. By One Who Has Suffered. ] I was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address I was to give to the Try Excelsior Class for Boys Only that evening. I had nearly hit on a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, who was absorbed in reading "The Marchioness of the Mill" on an ad joining seat. The infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "'Delightful child," he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to the child. I started. Was this infant to be forced upon me? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable," said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after noon he has said nothing but 'Nice...

He Was Ready. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
He Was Ready. There was recently hailed into court a little Irishman to whom the thing was a new experience. He was, how ever, unabashed, and wore the -air of a man determined not to get the worst of it. "Prisoner at the bar," called out the clerk, "do you wish to challenge any of the jury?" Whereupon the Celt looked the men in the box over very carefully, and with a skilled eye. "Well, I tell ye," he finally replied, "O'im not exactly in trainin', but O0 could pull off a round or two with that fat old boy in th' corner."

Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
Gone Again. At a certain public school it was the custom for the teachers to write on the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The April number of "The Story teller" Magazine is just in. The read er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence. Jus -tus Miles Forman, Mrs. Baillie Rey nolds, Warwick Deeping, I. A. R. Wy lie, Captain Shaw, J. O. Curwood write in this number. These authors could not write poorly if they tried, and it seems as though they are at their best in this number. Besides the above writers H. de Vire Stac poole, author of "The Blue Lagoon,' writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all thesE attractions, it is no wonder that thE "Storyteller" is so great a favoritE with magizine readers.

ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 2 April 1914
ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is known to have exceed ed the speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one fa mous specimen showed the full length of one complete: stride of about 26ft. In the stride of the fastest racers the hindquarters and limbs are raised con siderably higher than the shoulders, and from this relatively great height brought downward and forward, wide ly separated from each other, to avoid striking, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed of the dog. The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fif teen yards per second under the most favoraible conditions.
