SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution ;in the volume of the human stream that sets towards recreational resortB on Sunday." I On Sabbath after Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" be out of date, and brevity's the aim Of many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As Ttfhen the Reverend John Macduff preached sermons sad and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir for Sunday's boating song? When joys of Sydney Harbor to the • Sydney people call, I The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may be right; it may be wrong; Jfersnurkua will not seek To justify the way they spend theiv holiday per week. '..or yet can Peter well condemn the i pleasant things they do. For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does. 'em too. j/vvnen he was young he went to r church because he had to go, But now he's w...

MOE SWAMP DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

MOE SWAMP DRAINAGE. On Monday last, Mr Hagelthorn (Minister of Public Works), ' accompanied by Mr Cattanach (of the State Kivers and Water Supply Commission), visited Trafalgar and Yarragun to ascertain if some scheme could not be pvols-ed to assist the farmers on the swamp land regarding drainage difficulties. They came at the request of Mr S. Barnes, M.L. A., by whom they were introduced to meetings of settlers at both of the aforemen tioned places. Mr Young (Yarragon), said that many of the settlers were opposed to coming within the scope of the Water Commission, as they ffenred that, the rating would be too heavy. The Minister, also Mr Cattanach, having addressed the meeting, it was agreed to ask the State Rivers and Water Supply Com mission to submit a drainage scheme to the settlers for their approval or otherwise. Speaking at Trafalgar, the Minister said that he had been informed that some of the settlers had received from £40 to £50 per acre for their blocks. It was never in...

DOWN WITH THE PEDESTRIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

DOWN WITH THE PEDESTRIAN, j Owing to the ever-increasing perils of the traffic in the city streets the pedestrian has been much discussed of late by motorists, who are anxious to keep the pedestrian in his proper place, which seems to toe on the foot path, and nowhere else. It is there lore not surprising that che pedes trian, after reading the opinions ex pressed about him by motorists, and enjoying a hearty supper, should hava dreamt that he was present—a soli tary pedestrian, at a meeting of in dignant motorists, and heard the fol lowing speech:— "If we do not take prompt action, fellow-motorists, not one of us will bs alive in Melbourne in another year. During the past 12 months 275 poer motorists have been run over and ItUied by pedestrians; 3119 h^ve been seriously injured, 1285 being crlppieu ior life.

The annual Hibernian ball at Moe is to be. held on Friday, 31st July. Mr M. McCristal has been appointed hon. secretary. For Children's Hacking Cough at Night, Woods' Great Peppermint Cure, 1b 6d. T^he Mirboo shire councilors at their May'meeting decided to ask the Main Roads Board not to go on with the con struction of the proposed new road to Allambee, their reason being that in all probability there will be an extension of the Thorpdale railway line'to Allambee in the near future. The Allambee re presentatives contended that if the line should be made the road to Mirboo North would be useless, and an un necessary expenditure of public money. At Wednesday's meeting of the council a reply was read from the board. It stated that the board considered the pro posed road a necessary one, irrespective, of whether the railway* was extended or not, as it was needed to connect with certain cross roads in the Shire of Woorayl. In regard to the request of the council to proclaim Coast road a...

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Mslboura*. We often hear of folks being "blue," but have never seen it so nearly ex emplified as at the Repertory Thea tre ball, where several ladies were blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair. ThidT was the flrst time in Melbourne that the new dyed wigs have l?een seea in any numbers, and >Te have not yet quite deci ted whether we like them or no*;, . ■_»£ course, we are accus tomed to the coiffure which is so deep orange in hue that it is. prac tically majenta. We have had a num ber of these of late years, but the new tones are quite a novelty. I can not say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certain* »• more becoming than the light saxe tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective, but on the whole these colored wigs can not be voted a success. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair, it is but a freak ...

FOODS OF THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

FOODS OF THE MIND. , We are conscious that the food of the body influences the health of the mind, as when we say of some un suitable or indigestible thing, "it has made me dull of mind, it has made me sad, it haB made me irritable, or has in some other way affected my equanimity." But we do not recog nise with like readiness and in the same way the effect of the foods of the mind on the mind and its health; nor is this remarkable, for the body feeds perceptibly, jand by one stom ach alone, while tW mind feedB im perceptibly by five stomachs, by every sense, which is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re ceives its ailment; be that good or bad, and from and "by which it is re newed and from day to day sustained. i TheBe foods of the mind entering the mental organisation, the camera nervosa, largely, if not altogether, mould, that organisation into set form, according to its quality for moulding. They are so like the touch, of the sculptor on the clay, that to a large ex...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 10 June 1914

n. The inst&nt after Alfred had got out of the train at Swakeleys Junc tion a Jady had entered Mary's com partment. She was stout, grey-haired, and wheezy, and the first thing she did was to shut the windows. Alfred detested shut windows, so Mary took a haBty prowl down the corridor to see if there were an empty compart ment into which she could move their belongings. She quickly ascertained that there was no room elsewhere, and, sudden ly remembering that she had left her handbag on the seat unprotected, hur ried back. The stout lady was step ping down on to the platform, but apparently she was returning, for her wraps, were piled up on the seat she had chosen. She had not a pleasing face. Mary snatched up her bag, feeling she had been rash to leave it there unguarded. "I hope my five-pound note is safe," she thought, utterly forgetting that Alfred had taken charge of it. She searched for the note, naturally failed to find it, and grew crimson with an ger and distrust. "The...

THINGS MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORSE Tht Tal« of An IINfated Fiv«-Pound Note. B1 HELEN LEWIS. All lier life Mary Brown had shown a peculiar faculty for getting into trouble. Even In childhood she gave evidences of this deplorable charac teristic. I When no one else dreamed of 'whooping, or mumping, or measling, sure as fate, Mary would hob-nob with the fiends who produced these unpleas ant symptoms, bring them home, and ^nearly die of their attentions. ' At the age of ten she entered into confidential relations with a burglar, an indiscretion which resulted in the loss of all the family plate and jewelB, and some painful hours spent by her self gagged and locked up in the coal cellar. Later, she had to be denied the j usual girlish pastimes. If ever she' bathed, someone had to plunge in after her .and, with considerable risk to his own life, save her from drown ing. If ever she rode, either she came to grief or there was a horse to be paid for. If ever she played hockey, either she injured ...

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 17 June 1914

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. Most writers of fiction unnecessari ly tax their imagination. If they wouiu only keep a scrap-book filled with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think out good plots or dramatic, situations. John Frederick Wilson, a traveller, of Angel-road, Brixton, was married in ioi)7, possibly to celebrate the golden jubilee, when he was only 22 years of age. In three years he had wearied , of his marital responsibilities, and, according to the custom of some parts ox Brixton, he left home one morning, and forgot to . return. After eight years of single blessedness he had doubts about the joys of bachelorhood, and, recking nothing of the law relating to bigamy, he led another lady to the altar. Meantime his first wife had been drifting down the road that leads to the police station and His Majes ty's gaols. She was arrested on Mon day for some minor offence, and tak en to the Kensington-road Police Sta tion. Every self-respecting woman in * Brixton carrie...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES/ j A non-wowser cocky from Wyal catchem, or thereabouts, wandered in to the Continuous Picture Pavilion, and after blinking b eerily at a cow boy picture fell asleep as soon as it was followed by a love story. Right on through the next picture he slept, until came the usual short interval, followed again by a' repeti tion of the cowboy film he had al ready seen. The corn-coaxer gazed in astonish ment at the familiar cowboys and In-" dians careering across the sheet. "What day is it?"- he asked in a whisper of a lady attendant.

Hill find. (From Our Own Correspondent). THE MAIN ROAD. A largely-attended meeting of ratepayers was held at Hill End on the 23rd June. Mr Robins was elected to the chair. Mr W. H.

Mr Burrage also gave a brief history leading up to the presentation of the petition to the Board, adding that it was never intended to pre vent others from having any other route considered that they thought suitable—(applause)—provided that each route was considered on its merits.

I YOD SHOULD BE DETERMINED ' in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts.

FOOTBALL. MOE v. HAZELYVOOD—AT MORWELL. THE FORMER AGAIN VICTORIOUS. ' (By Free Kiok). Those who looked forward to a very enjoyable outing when Moe met Hazel wood were satisfied with their reward on Saturday. With a gentleman of Mr Conlan's calibre as host, a crowd of Hazelwood " sports" as opponents, a beautiful day of sunshine and a bonnie ground to play on, what more could even the fastidious desire ? The Moe boys were in great heart—from the time that they stepped aboard the vehicles* of the " iron-horse" until the last strains of " God Save the King" died away at the conclusion of the " Brand of Silence," they were happy ! The three hours wait at Morwell would, under other circumstances, have been tiresome, but with sucli as existed, it was an additional enjoyment of the day. The members of the Moe club are, in a measure, indebted to the Hazelwood brigade, and appreciate the feelings of generosity and goodwill which prompted ' that body to journey to Morwell to meet them, and t...
