TARRA VALLEY AT ITS BEST. - ENJOYABLE SPORTS MEET ING. For several years past the resi - dents of Tarra Valley have been Sworking very hard In an endeavour to build a iall, for social and edu Scational purposes, and to this end have been holding sports meetings - which have swellea the funds con ssiderably. The hall has just re cently been erected, but the build ing Is not yet out of debt, and the sports were again held on Wednes dcay. Tarra Valley is recogmnsed as the show place of the district, and much concern was felt when It was reported that the recent fires had destroyed the ibeauty spots.

The day was a perfect one for the outing, and humbers of picnic parties wended their way to the Valley', with no other idea than to ramble among the gtillies and pick ferns. The gate takings-amounted to £12, besides which a ...

IFRUIT AND FROWERS. THE ANNUAL SHOW. The annual fruit and flower show in connection with the Traralgon Horticultural Society was held yes terday in the Mechanics' Hall. i The exhibits were not quite up to the previous year in numbers, and the same thing applied in regard to the quality, but the shlight tailing off is more than accounted for by the dry autumn, ivhich was dlsas trous to both fruit and flowers. On top of this Wvas the destruction of the fruit caused by the starlings, and the severe 'hail storm of a few weeks ago, which senriously dama ged both fruit and flowers. Com petent judges declarea that under the circumstances the exhibits were very fine indeed, and creditable to the growers and to the distnrict. Owing to the damage done by the starlings, Mr. E. Sanders could 'not exhibit fruit. He usually has a large exhibit. Mr. O. S.

"WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOURSELF." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 April 1914
"WHAT ARE Y'OU GOING TO DO WITH YOURSELF." --- At the Methodist Church on Sunday last, the Rev. WV. H. Scur preached upon the above question. He said he had often heard the words spoken by one individual to the other. It was assumed that each individual'had the disposal of himself, but most people did not give a thought to the importance of the words. It was an infinitely serious question. Mr. Scurr then showed that though each individual held the balance of power regard ing his own actions,h e could not do what he Pliked with his own busi ness or any member of his own family. Each individpal had the power to say ho to any temptation to do wrong, ,and to live an honor able life; to tnould his own facul ties, to live tn unselfish life, and mn the interest of others. In short, every man or woman had th.t power to mould his or her charac ter and destiny. They could also decide the momentous question: "Where will you spend eternity?" - ---- -- -----
