FEDERAL ISSUES. COMMONWEALTH AND STATES CONTRIBUTED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 6 April 1914
FEDERAL IS UES. COMMONWEALTH AND STATES CONTRIBUTED. The deliberations of the State Ministers gathered at Parliament House'stress the remark made by Sir Arthur Stanley, in openingtheconference, that, whilsttoutter high sounding political generalisations is easy, to deal in statesmanlike way with de tail is difficult. All thoughtful people agree that Australia should be peopled by settlers of the right class, that the State debts might be so handled as to greatly reduce the sum paid in interest, that a uniform gauge would simplify effective defence, that there should be no waste of money through competition between two sets of savings banks, both owne3 by the taxpayer. But the momentanyone of the issues mentioped is tackled in businesslike fashion a number of divergent views are warmly championed. At every turn State Ministers; and Commonwealth Ministers who are in consultation with them, find themselves face to face with the financial issue. Taking the last figures, which the reader...

f 'THE SEEDING SEASON. The Bowing. c riting in the "Australasian" th e contrioutor "Hickory" says:- r Cereal-growers in most districts hav received, and others will now, be look ing for, the soaking rains to gorninat the weeds, which, when turned under will improve the condition of the soil as well as provide a clean seed-bed While wheat growers are in no hurr" to sow, -tose who always grow oats tor feeding down with sheep, and for na. or grain, will :be preparing to pu tnem in. Not many'sow, oats on fallov land; but in the writer's experience year in and year out, it pays to do so. That- is to- say, as long as the areas under wheast and oats- maintain their present proportions. Yields of over 50 bushels to the acre can be de pended upon; and with the price any .Iay near 2s per bushel, it is a pay able proposition. With the. prospec tive prices for all stock, there may be shortly sufficient inducement to grow. equal quantities of wheat and of oats; and use a great.part of the latter...
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." '?l i E r ? , -; At a certain raniway station in the North of Ireland a farmer was wait ing for the train with a donkey he had purchased. On the arrival of the train at the station the farmer asked the guard where he would put the donkey. The guard, who was in a hurry, replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied the donkey to a buffer and then got intc the carriage himself. As the train was flying. along at express speed Pat, turning to a com panion, said, "By gosh, boy, Neddy'E footing it now!" The average individual who sell. tickets in a railway station acts like a nihilist; but down in his heart he feels himself nothing less than czar.
Ended Happily. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
Ended Happily. As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered 'Maria, "just this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered nlaria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the name an' the price of the medicine what cured her." Men always think a woman inter esting when they hear she is pretty, but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.

A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. Mr. Morley Roberts, the well-known author, has been detailing in the cur rent number of the "Strand Maga zine" some reminiscences of his life in Australia and America. As a lad of nineteen he quarrelled wit. his father and took a steerage passage to Aus tralia in an old iron ship called the Hyderabad. The sea had always ap pealed to him, and instead of idling his time away he spent the long months consumed in *the voyage in working as if he were one of the crew. The officers were white, but the crew were Hindus, Malays and See dee boys, and during the voyage not only did he acquire a knowledge of seamanship which stood him in good stead later in his strange chequered career; but he also obtained a working knowledge of the lingua franca of the Eastern seas. As a record of strenu ous endeavor, the distinguished au thor's simple narrative takes a front rank even in this country of work and thoroughness. Mr. Roberts says: It is perhaps hard for a writer to imagi...
SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
SUCCESS. Success shall come to him who waits;' But not to him of folded hands To him who hocpes, but hesitates, And simply by the roadside stands. Success is won by effort strong, By unremitting, earnest stress. The way it travels seems o'er-long? To haste its course, go, meet Suc cess! Why waste the time to drift and swing And watch the careless billows roll, Relying that some chance will bring You somehow some day to your goal? Far abetter that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring breeze, You man the sweeps, and mile by mile You still advance across the seas. Go, meet Success! For not enough That you should patience have alone. Up signal! On! Though fields be rough, 'Tis those shall reap who first have sown. Each day some little progress make; Lean not on trustful idleness, Another route. So meet Success! Lest, ere It reaches you, it take A morning ,paper alludes to "Heard in"g that Slzriek."

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
-A PARABLE :OF ..MODERNI - BABYLON.- . There: was a boy, and. his father said :unto him, "My son, work to-. day, for the time cometh when you ,nfust. leave school." And he said, "Yea, father I will study this even ing."- Buit a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the les sons were.forgotten. So on the mor row he broke downs in translation, and was soundly swished; and more over, at the year"s end he got no rrize. Years passed, and a great man said to him, "Young man, come round to my office in the morning and I will make you my hireling, and you shall amass much wealth." But on the morrow the youth said, "I will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when he showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach-yea, even one who bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do it now." Then in the fulness of time the young man loved a maid, and he said: "Behold, she is very ...

MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS I AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Fanous Suffragette. The history of the past and present, my sisters, is colored crimson with the deeds. and misdeeds of Man, the Monster. He stays out late and comes home early. He breaks open the children's money-boxes and buys Wild Voodbines with their dear littld far things. In the olden days he would neglect his wife while he went to the tourney; now he neglects her while he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree. In those same olden days he would make of her a beast of burden, now he burdens her with beasts-what with his ferrets, his dogs, his pigeons, and his gramophones! in fact, blood is on his hands; his feet are on the crooked path; his eyes are alwas picking out winners that have a pain in their legs and his mouth is always occupied with a quart pot or someone else's half-pint glass. He is a wretch, a brute, a prevarica tor, and perfect wash-out. All the crimes in the calendar can be laid to his charge. We have Nero--h...
