No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 10 July 1915
THERE is more wisdom in Shake speare than in any other book, and Hamlet's "the world is out of joint" is prbfoundly true, and always has been. The war will make confusion worse confounded, no matter how territorial power may be patched up. Mankind is as much adrift as it.was at the time of the deluge. The proverb that "knowledge comes but wisdom lingers," should read "information comes, but knowledge lingers," and wisdom. never comes in this world, whatever it may do in the next. Politics are a mere babble; and always will be until the illusion called political economy is replaced by commonsense facts of daily life. . A very opportune soft rain started to fall on- Monday afternoon, and continued through, the night, amount ing to 33 'points. It did a vast amount of good to the crops .and grass, after the heavy drying winds. The crops are now looking splen did, and the grass is beginiing to imake a move. The recent rains have made the roads and footpaths very muddy. Now is the. time t...

WERRIBEE. Recruiting meeting in Mechanics' hall on Monday evening next. Applications are invited for an assistant to the Electrician in'Charge of the Werribee Shire electric light plant.

The contract for forming the road, under the Country Roads Board,. down the Main street of Werribee is now being proceeded with by the contractor, Mr. A. Gillis. The gen eral opinion is that the road should have been made the full width of the street.
