BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
BACCHUS MARSH. A dance in aid of the Bacchus Marsh Red Cross fund, has been arranged for Wednesday, 11th Aug., as advertised. We'have received (too-late for publication) a letter from Mr. R. H. Dugdale, suggesting that the Bac chus Marsh Agricultural Society abandon its show this year, and that the showgrounds be offered to the Defence Department for returned wounded soldiers. Mr. Dugdale is perhaps not aware that at a special meeting of members of the Society, called a week or two ago for the purpose of deciding the question he now rises, it was decided to go on with the show. On Monday, 2nd August, Mr. H. W. Davey, Government Supervisor of Orchards, will deliver a .lecture at Bacchus Marsh, on "Orchard and Garden Work."

ONLY A SCRAP OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
ONLY A SCRAP OF. PAPER. The Kaiser on the warpath's gone, The ivorld's power to conquer, But faith, some think he's gone astray, Supported by the junker. The Hague conveiition he o'er threw, For which he must pay later; It suited well his purpose. Still, 'Twas only a Scrap of Paper. Paris-The Goal-first on the roll, That was to be invested, For a \veel-known fact, is still in tact. - Though it strongly was contested.

SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
S SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Charles L. Lyle, of Bacchus Marsh: Alexandria, Egypt.-Glad to let you know I am well. Oliver and Evans are here, and well, too. I* suppose you know that TIom O'Leary and "Scottie" Murdoch are dead. Tom was shot before he got out of the boat. Scottie got out, but only on to the beach. Young Hine was alo shot in the boat. Alf. Farrow was shot through the knee, and is at Malta. Tom O'Learv was buried at sea, but "Scottie" got back here, and was buried in Alexandria. "Scottie" had two bullets through the stomach. One of our tent mates saw him on the beach, and asked him how he was, and he replied that "he was good enough for three Turks yet." So it was a surprise to us to hear of his death. We were six weeks 'on the water, doing 21 days' sail. We saw the lot. It was terrible. We were being shelled the whole, of the /time, and I do not know how we missed being lit, as the shells were. dropping all around us for three weeks. We could not land the horses, so...

ALWAYS RETAIN A HUSBAND'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
ALWAYS RETAIN A HUSBAND'S LOVE. We know it is easy enough to win a husband. Almost any attractive lit tle mairen with a bright eye and coax ing voice, can gather in a husband but it is more.difficult to retain his love. The great difficulty is to draw out his true nobility and secure it at home. If the wife only understands her business she can do this. Most men like to be loved and soothed, There is something in the man's great, rough, earnest nature that can be won quicker and easier with gentleness than by the logic of the broom-handle. We have seen a girl who understood her business take a man and lead him through life in such a way that he wouldn't know but that he was man aging her. So perfect was the delu-r sion that, when she asked him to bring in a scuttle of coal, he always went, and he felt as though he counted it a mark of special favor that a poor un worthy creature like himself should be allowd to do so. We cannot exactly describe this magic power of a devoted wife ove...

DO "ONLY" DAUGHTERS MAKE GOOD WIVES? [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
DO "ONLY" DAUGHTERS MAKE S GOOD WIVES? In the strenuous rush and whirl of modern life, the only daughter is very often overlooked or passed by with contempt. Her quiet environment has made her shy and sensitive, and her sterling qualities are concealed within a shell of reserve. Ordinary acquaint ances assert that she is slow and stu pid; but her few real friends declare that she is charming. The only daughter, as a rule, is the companion and friend of her mother, and the mature experience of the lat ter inculcates a sense of sympathy and loving-kindness the younger mind that stand her in good stead when she is called upon to face life's battles in a home of her own. Then, too, an only daughter is usu ally domesticated. Her mother has sufficient leisure to teach her little in tricate details of housekeeping, as well as the art of cooking; and, as time goes on, she very often is delighted to undertake the household management entirely. She acts as hostess, and at tends to all social ...
