TRE-E CUTTING. (To the Editor.) Sir,-While reading the report of ithe Lilydale Shire Councils meet in," ii your last issue, I notice thie mention ot a letter from the Wonga Park ,State School Conmmit tee, drawing the coiicils attention to a tree that had beeu cut down alongside 31r Topping's property. To my mind this information seemed funny, and Iy r'dndig it one would fancy tlhe conliuittee was conuposed of e hool childreni with the usual tell-ta !e business.

A COMPLAINT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
1 COMPLAINT. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I?.I notice that the engineer has not left enough room on the top side of the road for a footpath bet'eie Ilerinon's and the school. It seems a pity that our (Cotral Hiding 'memberrs do not take a little monre trouble to see to the welfare of thile town. A footpath along tnis Iart of the road is very badly re ire:I. as most of he school chil ,hoi travel this portionit of the road. They have to walk on tite road. and chalice icbeing run over. if a footpath was made on tie top side of the road. it would be a great benefit to Yrra Juncttiion, and would cost only ua few pontds. To make a footpath on the tlow side would be very little good, as the school children would have to cross tie road twice to get to school. It is n pity a place should be spoiled for want of a little ferethotught.-Yours. etc., RIATEPAYER. Ym'arra Junction. 1/12/1.1.

FOR THE COMING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
FOR THE COMING MAN. The better boy you are, the better man you will be. If you do not now get the habit of saving, the chances are that you never will. "I don't want to!" drawn out with a whine when you are asked to do some little task about the farm doesn't sound very encouraging for a good, strong, true, manly future. The hab its of to-day will weave themselves into the lite of to-morrow. The world has a thousand places for the cheery-hearted boy, but the sour and selfish young man will wear his shoe sales to the uppers looking for a job, and never find one. Are you collecting a little litiary ot your own? It is a good sign to see a boy love good books. Always pick out something to read that will help you to be a better boy. A sunny face is worth more than mucih money. Make friends of people who are along in years. They have travelled a long way, apd can tell you the best road to a happy life' . Keep away from boys that are not clean-clean in their clothes, clean in their lips, an...
CHARGE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
CHARGE IT. "Just chalk it down," the poor mau said, when he had bought sonime bone less bread, and many costly things, his wife and bairns to feed-the most of which they didn't need as much as you need wings. lie buys the richest things in town, and always says, "Just chalk it down, I'll pay you soon, you bet"; and pay-day evening finds him broke, his hard-earned screw gone up in smoke and still he is in debt. The man who doesn't buy for cash lays in all kinds of costly trash that he could do without; he spends his coin before it's earned, and roars about it when it's burned-is that your way, old scout ! W\'hen comes the day of evil luck the war bag doesn't hold a buck to keep the wolf away; the "charge it plan will work no more at any market, shop or store; no goods unless you pay. The poor u e au for his money sweats, n he should pay for what he gets, just when hlie gets the same; thenu, when he goes his prunes to buy, and sees how fast the coppers fly, lihe'lldodge the spendthrif...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Ruaticles.") The splendid rain has made it pos sible for many a man on the land to join the ranks of the fellows who laugh-whom it is always good to meet and who are welcome everywhere. Of course, it came too late to save the season from taking place with the worst this country lias ever known; but there wore benefits in that downpour which are not to be despised and which relieve tension in many ways. Its effecto was instantaneous in promoting activity in rural callings and in the many other callings that are directly connected therewith. The break, coming as it did, almost at the same period of the year that former bad droughts have broken, brings hope that there will be a favorable autumn and that it will' not be necessary to wait for a whole year for the turn of the tide towards renewed prosperity for the producing interests, which means renewed pros perity for most other of our interests, als,. The accounts of the Governor's tour through the Goulburn Vall...
SUPPORT LOCAL INDUSTRY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
S?U'POll'R' LOCAL INDUSTRY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Surely something is amiss with the Lilydale folk. E:very dclay we see drapery hawkers, tailo;s tray ellers, foreign aerated water manu facturers, printers' travellers, etc.. coming into tihe town and being supportel by local people, who sura ly ate blind to their own interests. Practically every shilling spent; loc ally is circulated in the township, and benefits someone accordingly. We want a more loyal spirit.

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
TURF TOPICS (By "Flemington.") According to recent news from over the Murray, the Labour.Party in power in New South Wales appears to be dilly-dallying with the totalisator ques lion. A week or two ago we were led to believe that the "Caucus" in New South Wales was solid for the tote, but it now appears that the Government does not force allegiance from its sup porters in this important matter. Each member of the Labor Party is, it seems, free to think for himself in regard to the advisableness of legalising the ma chine. Their minds are not, therefore, caucus-controlled where the tote is con cerned. As before stated, however, there Is reason to believe that a majority of the adherents of the Government, in New South Wales favors the machine, and as it can also count upon a fair measure of support from the other side, the Bill, if introduced, should stand a first class chance of becoming law. If the racin jrublic'was left to msnake. a.-e?oice wh~~' ,Would definidtely settle the -poi...

MANGEL GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
MANGEL GROWING. Taking it generally, probably no other feeding crop exceeds in value the mangel, not only for cows, but also all kinds of stock. Getting the land ready, so as to be ready for sowing towards the end of the first month of spring, is recommended, a little ear lier or later, according to the earliness or lateness of the district. The man gel plant requires a generous allowance of farmyard manure, where such is available, otherwise a mixture per acre of three ewt. bone meal, sulphate of potash, and nitrate of soda, in ejiual parts. An essential element for success in the cultivation of the mangel crop-is fineness of tilth, a condition largely promoted by pro-working up and ex posure to the disintegrating influence of the weather. if the seed bed is rough and the weather dry at seeding time, the air peneratees the crevices and keeps the outside husk in which the true seed of the maugel is envel oped so hard that the tiny shoot cannot break through. Under these condi tions ...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) We are all farmers when it comes to the pinch. Many whose holdings range from a suburban tenement on a lot 20ft. by 50ft. to a sumptuous suite of offices in Collins-street, do not realise it until the country is in the throes of a drought, but the fact has been brought home to all during the past few months. There is none so high or low in the scale who have not come to understand something of the personal interest everyone has in the farm. Consequently thie rejoicing when the rain camine was general in the widest sense of the term and by no means perfunctory. Of course it came too late to raise the cloud of depression that has settled upon the community as a result of the lean year, but it is recognised that it ameliorates the position oif many of those on the land in some measure at least, and we are accordingly thankful for the portion of the loaf that came down with those steady, soaking show ers. A reference to the fool's parad...
HOMELY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
HUMLLY l1NI . Little by little is the rulo in human evolution as well as in the world of nature. We do not leap into great things or so-called perfection, we grow. Lint, bits of :onap, etc, are apt to clog the wasteoipe of the bathtub. You can pull them out with a button hook. Cream that is too thin to whip, may be made right by ading the unbetaen white of an egg before beginning to whip it. When emptying feathers from one pillow to another, sow the opening of one to the other, and you will not waste your feathers. When making toast for an invalid, out it in narrow strips. Not only does it seem more appetising, but it is much easir for weak fingers to handle. A step ladder makes a good place on wldhich to hang jelly bags to drain. The ladder is first opened, and the bags hung on the brace in the centro. An easy way to peel peaches is to place theia in a drainer, and dip them into boiling water and then into cold. This, enables you to strip off the skin without waste. An oblong piece...
