TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

, TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—As a member Of the Peo-. pie's Party, I feel that the recent correspondence,' attacking, the system of only allowing one Lib- ! oral candidate to go to the poll should be dealt with and I would therefore appeal to the leaders of this party to justify this action. It seems that theyare really con ducting the-whole election, as it is generally acknowledged that this is not a labor constituency, and ■ consquently "the candidate chosen by the Party is practi cajly elected; Under these cir cumstances. the electors are un doubtedly entitled to a state ment of facts showing that if more than one Liberal candidate is in the Held I hat the Liberal cause would sufler.— -\ours. inc.. MEMBER OF PEOPLE'S PARTY.

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE A singular thing concerning mistle toe, called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs on a wide range of trees and is so very common on the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs James Veitch and Sons' nursery at Langley, and the results were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mistletoe seed was sown on a number of pear trees, and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves were de veloped. The effect upon the pear was very noticeable, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue of the tree-stem Just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed above the point where the mistletoe had germinated.

After recent disclosures of start lingly unusual children who write and see things upside down (says the "Daily News") now comes the story of a twelve-year-old Birmingham girl who has had an uncontrollable impulse to "do things backwards." Her education has made little pro gress owing to this strange perverse ness, which has sometimes impelled her to write from right to left. The doctors conjectured that there was some physiological abnormality, and the X rays have now disclosed the secret of the child's eccentricities. When the rays were applied it was found that the heart was on the right side of the body, and that other or gans, including the brain, were mis placed. TO NEWSPAP...

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINES8 11 Is the psychic sense more developed in Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follow ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Hamp stead) to the editor of "The Express":— I have seen Mr G. K. Chesterton's play "Magic," and I am bound to ad mit that it interested and amused me as much as anything I have seen for years. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that. I have a strong objection to raise. The play deals with a professional con jurer who, in addition to his trade, Is well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, the conjurer is in love with a lady. The fly in the oint ment Is the lady's brother, who repre sents all that is crass, cheeky, ignor ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im pervious in regard to spiritual matters j is said to be that he has been l...

SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

SHORT SENTENCES BILL. TO DIMINISH THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Club (says "The Daily News" of December 5). Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with the approval of both recognised par ties, but even with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to deduce the num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he continued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't jirotect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which ho would learn—useful work— would enable ...

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

BIRDS IN PARKS THE CONFIDING CUSHAT "That is one of the most wonderful things in London," said a country visi tor, as he stood near the deli at the end of the Serpentine And watched a man feeding real wild wood-pigeons with grain and peas. Not only (says "The Daily Telegraph") did the-pigeons feed about his feet, but presently one of the boldest among them fluttered up and actually settled on the feeder's wrist, suffering Itself there to be gently stroked on the back as it took the food. Tho countryman stared In undisguised astonishment. | He knew that out In his own plough lands, where the winter-proud wheat is Just now spreading a delicate haze of green over the brown acres, and in the leafless beech woods through which . you can1 see for a quarter of axmile. ; against the twenty yards that would limit the view in summer, these same pigeons are the most cautious of wild fowl.

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal skies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far ae rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that ■happy combination between business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the peac...

EVOLUTION OF LABOR. CO-PARTNERSHIP PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 26 February 1914

EVOLUTION OF LABOR. GO-PARTNERSHIP PRINCIPLE. A delegation from the Liberal Workers' Institute waited upon Earl Grey at Federal Govern ment. House on Friday morning to discuss a proposal for the es tablishment in Australia of an association similar to tho Labor Co-partnershp Association of Great Britain, of which Earl Grey is president. Earl Grey, in the course of a conversational discussion, said the whole of the present indus trial system was based on a wrong principle, .whereas they knew tnat co-operation was a success. If they had employers giving as little wages as they could, and employees sayiny, "We will undertake to give as little work as we can," they had a rotten system. They had the two parties pulling at both ends of the rope, whereas if they wanted progress the worker must have the full assurance that by. doing his utmost he was helping himself and his fellow workers. High wages and low cost of production went together To secure high wages they had to secure the maximu...

The courts which were laid down in September are in fine playing order," and the result of this tournament is awaited with a great deal of interest. Saturday afternoon brought the delightful change which was welcomed by all. Now thai it is so cool it is hard to realise that such a trying time was experien ced during that fortnight of hot days and nights. It has made the farmers rather anxious for they think that as the change came without rain it is likely to be a very dry autumn. As the school committee's three years' tenure of olllce will be up on February 28, Hie head teacher has called a meeting for nominations for members of a committee to be elected for three years.
