PARS FROM "PUNCH." [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
PARS FROM "PUNCH." W. A. Holman has in many ways a remarkable resemblance to W. M. Hughes. In part this comes from their close companionship and friendship when "Bill" Holman was a French polisher and "Bill" Hughes an umbrella-mender, or at some other queer calling. The two "Bills" saw each other in times of vicissitude, and must have many laughs together now over the strange trades th y worked at before brains and indus try won them power, culture, good in comes, The main resemblance is in view. It is the crafty, clever, subtle point of view. They seek and find strange arguments that no other public men would think of. They have remark ably similar mannerisms when speaking, modulate their voice in the same way, look like brothers, gesticulate freely with similar actions, and have great command of words. Holman is more genial than his brother Socialist. Heis one of the most charming public men in Australia, and his eloquence, directness and delightful manner and address made him a m...
THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What is Farm Management? [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914

ODE (AND PAID) TO THE NORTH WIND. IN FOND REMEMBRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
ODE (AND PAID) TO THE NORTH WIND. IN FOND REMEIMBRANCE, I am the wind that whips the tree, That flays the land and whips the sea, From arid areas I pass, The fiend insensate, Boreas! I banish all urbanity And sanity-true sanity. I clothe the countryside in brown, Dispel the smile, and raise the frown, And cause profuse profanity, When I blow in to town, I am the harbinger of drought, Destroyer of each tender sprout; I scorch the crops upon the plain, And blast the promises of rain,. I seize each opportunity To harass the community, My mission but to mar and maim, And no man ever dares to claim Immunity-immunity, When I begin my game. I sing with maniacal glee. A ballad of inclemency. I am the washerwoman's woe, The barman's friend, the cyclist's foe; I treat without variety Society-Society, I fill each spotless home With dust, I fill each housewife with disgust, And fleeing their sobriety Some men go on the bust. My wings are laden with the grit From road and plain, from mound and p...
A Merciful Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
A Merciful Farmer. A young girl was going to make her first visit to a cousin in the country. At the station she was met by the cousin, and after a half-hour's drive he told her they were approach. ilg his farm, In one of the broad fields that met the young lady's attentive eye stood a windmill, and gathered around it were several pigs. "Well, that beats anything I ever heard of!" exclaimed the fair one. "I didn't know that you farmers wore so considerate." "What does?" queried the country cousin, "That over yonder," replied the girl, pointing a pretty finger. "Just think of having a fan out in the field to keep those pigs cool." lBeauty ls as Inseparable from truth as fragrance from a r'ose.,
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
INSIST UPON BETTER -ROADS. Better roads are essential to better living as well to the farmer's conm. fort and convenience. They are essen tial to the reasonable pleasure of his family. Good roads mark the stand lng of every community. The greatest objection to living In the country Is the difficulty of getting about. You must get about it you properly market your crops, If you are to keep your machinery In order, if you send your children to school, If you go to church or attend meet ings. These are not little things. They are matters of vital importance. Bad roads Impose the heaviest tax on a farmer that he pays, and he is cer tain to pay for It, whether he knows It or not. Hie pays it In the wear and tear of all his vehicles. He pays It In the additional labor imposed upon his stock, lie pays through the labor or self-denial of his family. Therefore, work for better roads as you would work to put out a fire in your barn. Study the best methods for building and maintaining better r...
THE NURSE ON NIGHT DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 April 1914
THE NURSE ON NIGHT DUTY. It is a truism that one-half of the world does not know how the other half lives, and certainly few people comprehend the unceasing work in hospitals and infirnmaries, where day nurses pass on their duties to night nurses, and night nurses report on the night to day nurses, with mono tonous exactness and regularity. Yet it is this very regularity which makesi night duty In institutions, hard as the work often is, so much less try. ing than the comparatively ligh' i task of similar work in private houses where, as a rule, a nurse goer. from one acute case to another. In hospital, night duty is general ly undertaken under sutable condi. tions, for a definite period. In pri vate houses, unless absolutely neces. sary, it is natural that the relatives should desire to avoid the expense of a second nurse, in which case the one who is single-handed is never free from anxiety, sleeps lightly, and, per haps, gets up more than once during the night to attend to the pa...

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PiE1llmlTON, Published by Arrangement with Ward, Look and Co. Ltd., Loud, and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) III, She saw himn again at dinner, but he had no news of his journey. The Archdeacon had been over to North Berwick to watch all the world at work upon the links, and to tell droll stories of his failures, These were ad dressed chiefly to Hugh, who did not hear them, rarely to Geraldino, whose manner towards Lella had changed wholly since luncheon. She was al most gracious now, but with a gra ciousness which a shrewd woman would have suspected with justice. She talked of Hugh's journey, of the emptiness of Edinburgh at such a sea son, and the guests she herself ox pectedl at the week-end, "All golfing people," as she said to the Archdea con, "and such enthusiasts! I don't thing there will be anything left of the Kilspindle links when they have gone," htugh asked who was coming, and she gave him several names, none, however, which moved him to any ex p...

FOOTBALL NOTES. Northcote play a practice match against South Melbourne District at Croxton reserve to-day. The Association premiership matches (originally fixed for Eight Hours Day) will be played on Monday next (Easter Monday). Northcote meet Prahran at Croxton reserve, and a very keen con test is expected. Northcote played Preston District a practice game at Croxton on Saturday, and after a strenuous game victory res ted with the former, scores being Northcote, 5.21; Preston District, 6.3. Advantage was taken of the occasion to test the capabilities of several aspir ants for places in the Northcote team. The most promising of the newcomes was Carroll (late of Doreen). It will be learned with regret that Beck, Northcote's sterling rover, has (owing to health reasons) definitely de cided to retire from the game. "AIf," was always a prominent player, and his loss will be much felt, Contrary to expectations Moore will again take the field for Northcote. In view of the early approach ...

VILLAGE FAIR, The village fair in connection with the South Preston Methodist Church was brought to a successful conclusion on Saturday night last, all the stalls being cleared and a number of competitions held. The children's day, Saturday afternoon, was very successful, the hall being crowded, andl business was very brisk, especially at the fish pond, under the care of Ivy Ilurlstone and Ruby Walker, and the dips, in charge of the Misses Laing and Bransgrove. Atr. Sargeant caused great merriment with his ventriloqual entertainment; he and his dolls are now established favorites in Preston. Mr. Sargent also repeated the performance in the night, and little Miss Heaver recited. The nett resultof the bazaar will mean something over £100.
