RIVER RIDING ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
RIVER RIDING ELECTION There wtas a fair attendlance of electors at the Shire Hall on Monday niight last, when Mr. A. Ravenhall, who is a candidate for the River Riding at the forthcoming election, outlined his programme. The strains of music from bagpipes gave quite a novel touch to the meeting, as two pipers had been engaged to parade the streets to draw the crowd, in con trast to the old idea of bell-ringing. Mr. Greig, the well-known Braybrook identity, was responsible for the in novation. Mr. .Jolnes, president of the Bray brook Citi ·ens;' Committee, occupied the chair, and also on the platform was Cr. W. Dempster. T rhe inhan, in introducing the candidate, referred to the election of twelve months ago, when Mr. Raven hall was so narrowly defeated by Cr. W. J. Pridhanim. There was only one candidate in the field at present, and u!uite a number of gentlemen had been approached, but all had de clined, recognising the great fight they would have to put up to defeat Mr. Ravenhall. ...
G.U.O.O.F., ALBION LODGE [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
G.U.O.O.F., ALBION LODGE The above lodge held its usual fort nightly meeting on the evening of July 30. Notwithstanding thq fact of the weather being extremely cold and boisterous, there was arn encouraging i'sscmblage of the brethren. On account of the night being set aside for a "social evening" most of \the business offering was practically 1)ostploned until the- next, meeting. However, suficient time was available to initiate one ,new member. Cricket enthusiasts of the lodge :;hould make sure of their presence Son quarter, night,- August 27, to hear the report from the annual meeting of the" Order's cricket competition, which was won last year by the Col lingwood branch.

GENERALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
GENERALITIES I was set thinking by the re marks of "Observer " last week. So, I sought out a student of the Technical School, and questioned Shim cle sely re a steam-roller, and if it could be in two places at once. And we reached this con clusion, not algebraically or geo metrically, but sensibly, a steam roller cannot be in two places at once, but that's not all, the trouble is it doesn't stay in one place long enough, judging by some of the rollicking pieces of blue Mietal on Sunshine reads But to pass on to things more delightful. My joy knows no bounds, -why ?. Another dancing class in Sunshine ! National dances I What with Iri.h Flings, Welsh Rarebits and Gaby Glides, we are to be gay all right. Yet in a weak moment the editor may permit me to make a suggestior. Why not have a national dance for our shire ? The steps are easy, and the name quite musi cal.

FARMERS AND THE TARIFF [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
FARMERS AND THE TARIFF' (BY W.F.) "When you have a bad caiw-Sabuse the other side." Such was the dictum laid down by a legal luminary some years ago. 'Reading the published report, "Argus," 23rd July, of case p)resented by a deputation from the Victorian Farmers' Union to the Tariff Board on the previous day, the various speakers seem to have been at least conscious of the fact that they had a "bad case," even if they were not abusive in their references to the manufacturers whom they attacked. MIr. Paterson, M.H.R., in introducing the deputation, indulged in some in teresting juggling with figures, and wound up with a statement, which, if not deliberately unitrue, was at least not in accordance with fact. He stated that in Canada reapers and binders were sold for £47, and that in Aus tralia "the consumer had to pay £92." If the rest of Mr. Paterson's state ments are as accurate as this one, then not much value can be attached to them, as (luring the whole of this year the Australia...
SUNSHINE v. KEW [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
SUNSHINE v. KEW 0-- The locals were at home to Kew last Saturday. What might have been a fine display of football was marred by a freezing south-west wind. Most of the play took place at the works goal, only one point being scored at the An;lderson street goal, With 36 players on the ball in the last quarter a little rough play was experienced, as could only he expected. Goal-kickers for Sunshine:-Day, Crymble, Stephenson. The team comprised:-Stephenson, Scarle., Shorten (2), King, More (2), Henderson, Dodson, Soutar, Day, T. Moore, Pobjoy, McPherson, Crick, Taffe, Mitchell, Crymble. Kew won the toss, and kicked with the wind to the works goal, and get t.ing away smartly soon had one flag up. IHenderson, full-hack, had a tough iproposition kicking off against the wind. At the kick-off the hall landed 'well within shooting distance. What looked a certain goal for Kew was saved by Crick, who seemed to be in good marking form, with a good boot vwell around the wing. Searle came to ligh...
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 9 August 1924
POULTRY NOTES. l1y "Heather Jock." In further considering artificial in cubation it is well to give attention to the two methods, viz., hot air and hot water. Roughly speaking, incubators may :,e grfoupedct into two classes, namely, those in which water trays are used, and in which the air is taken up from underneath the trays, and, after rising and passing through the egg cham ber, is expelled through various venti. lation holes in the casing, and those in which no water trays are used, and in which the air is first warmed and conies in from the top of the machine, linally passing out at the bottom. Taking the hot water type of incu bator first, we have got to get fixed in o'ur minds the fact that the rapidity of the air flow depends entirely upon the temperature of the air immediately outside the machine. That is to say, that if by any chance the heat in the room were so great that there was no difference inside or outside the egg drawer there would he no flow of air at all, and c...

PLEA FOR SUNDAY SPORT Stimulates Criticism To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 16 August 1924
PLEA FOR SUNDAY SPORT Stimulates Criticism To the Editor "Sunshine Advocate." Sir,-I thank you for the court esy extended me by the publish ing of letter together with your rejoinder thereto ini your widely read journal. Permit me, however, to point out that unconsciously no doubt, you have shifted the point at issue. I studiously avoided rais ing the religious aspect of Sunday sport, but your treatment of the question suggests that I am a rigid dogmatist who wishes to take the sun out of the sky on the Sabbath. The point I raised was whether it is in the best interests of the community to extend, or even to lprovide, facilities for Sunday sport thus involving an increase of Sunday labour. Hitherto, the Sunday has been regarded legally as a day of sus pended labour, and now it is pro posed to violate that principle and open up the parks for tennis, etc. This principle once violated leads naturally to spread of Sun day labour, until we will have the sorry spectacle of a large number ...
