HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. "Never ask a woman to mend any thing," said the cynical old Paterfa milias. "When I wait a garment mended I take it to my wife, flourish it around a little, and say, 'Where's that rag bag?' 'What do you want ,with the ragabag?' asks my wife. Her suspicions are roused at once. 'I want to throw this thing away. It's worn out,' I say, with a few more flourishes. 'Let me see it,' nk" wife says. Of course, I pass it over and she examines it. 'Why, it only needs -,' and then she mends it."

"Home." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
'"Home." He had been around from church to church trying to find a congenial congregation, and finally he stopped in a little church just as the con gregation read with the minister: "We have left undone those things whitch we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done." The man dropped into a pew with a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness," he said, "I've found my crowd at last."
SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
SUCCESS. Success shall come to him who -waits; But not to him of folded hands To him who hopes, 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 better that, sails spread the while To catch the faintest favoring breeze, You man_ the sweeps, and mile by mild 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, 'T'is -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 alludeq to "Hoard ings that Shriek." They must be of the "yell-qR" yvtrety,
A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said .unto him, "My son, work to lay, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said, 'Yea, father I will study this even ing." But a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the Les sons were forgotten. So on the mor. row he broke down in translation, snd was soundly swished; and more aver, 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 ,rieth 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 lie said: "Behold, she is very beautiful, and my...

A NEW CHUM IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 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 witu 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. .r. Roberts says: It is perhaps hard for a writer to imagin...
PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
PATIENCE. ."To know how to wait," says De Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when they grap pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently. It has been said that speech has been given to women to conceal their thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. We know many old maids who have been trying for years. Most things we haven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant. i i iw |mil m m m m ii
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Rev. George Denyer, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, issued some novel "drink points" in his jarochial letter for November. He stated: The man who can afford to get drunk is too rich. The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is the cork. If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat in the church. "It takes a long time to age whisky, hut it won't take long for whisky to' age you.
JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE: [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
JOTTINGS FROM DOOKIE: [From Our Own Correspondent]. Owing to the non arrival of some lining boards that were required for the Dookie railway station, to finish off the building, the work has been unavoidably delayed. The timber has now arrived and the stationmaster fully anticipates being able to abandon the old building in a week. The protest lodged by Mr G H Gib- son at the last annual show was dealt with by the Show Committee last Satur- day evening, when the protest was up- held. The protest was lodged on the grounds that the pair of ponies which secured the prize were not the bona fide property of the successful exhibitors, Messrs Peck, Sons and Biggar. A letter was sent to the exhibitors asking them that they should sign a statutory decla- ration as to the bona-fides of the exhibit, and in their reply they stated that one of the ponies was owned by them, the other having been lent to them to show during the season. The annual meeting of the Dookie Football Club was held at tho...

THE LUCERNE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 16 April 1914
THE LUCERNE MARKET. Mr H. S. K. Ward report- :-The position of the lucerne market has been so unsatisfaciery during the last two months that I decided to cease quotations. DuringJandary and February the market was fairly active, and best lucerne chaff was clearing at £5 per ton, and hay at £4 per ton, ex Melbourne rails Large quantities of indifferent grades came forward on the market during March, and in order to clear and save etorage expenses hre, the indifferent grades of lucerne chaff were sold from £3 1s to PA per ton, occasionally up to ;A 5S. and hay from £3 to £3 10s. The gen eral feeders found that the cheaper grades of lucerne were suiting their requirements, and the demand for choice qualities languished accord ingly, until the values of best lots eased back, about the middle of hay to £3 15g. The supply still continned;and exceptionally heavy supplies of good oaten and wheaten hay chaff, badly cat, caused a con gestion in the fodder market gene rally, and as these sweet...
