QUOITS. TRARALGON v. MOE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

QUOITS. TRARALGON v. MOE. The first match of the series to be played between the Moe, Railways and Traralgon Clubs, took place on Saturday afternoon, 20th alt-., under very favor able condition?, between the Moe and Traralgon Clubs, ajjd resulted in a win for the home team by 73 points. The day was fine, and some excellent quoit throwing was indulged in, and, consider ing the fact that the Moe Club has practically just been formed, they did remarkably well to put up such a good stand against ,the older club. In fact, some of the more experienced quoit players consider that, before the season ends, the Moe club will prove a thorn in the side of the other clubs. However, the Traralgon club did all it possibly could to make the trip of the Moe players'as pleasant as possible. On arrival at Traralgon they were met by the President of the club (Mr W. Pentland) and Messrs G. Bayley (Presi dent of the Assiociation) and Guest. Mr Pentland, in his usual generous manner, entertained the visit...

YOD SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers.^ The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Dpmand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more • by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus' oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. „ Mr W. A. Lacey, a buyer for the Gippsland Co-operative Bacon Curing Company, will fo...

FOOTBALL. MOE v. THORPDALE. THE LATTER VICTORIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

FOOTBALL. MOE v. THORPDALE. THE LATTER VICTORIOUS. (By, 1?hee Kick). When the Moe team set out for Thorpdale on Saturday: morning it did not expect to encounter anything 1 approaching the strength which it was its lot to meet! It was well-known that the home team was a " big dose," having gone through the season, thus far, without suffering de feat. Moe, since organising, was also an undefeated team, having played three matches and being victorious on each occasion. The meeting of these teams, therefore, was looked upon as a speculation, and much interest was manifested in the result. * On the arrival of the " express"— minus speed, the visitors were met by the Secretary of the Thorpdale Club, who conducted them to the Hotel, in the dining room of which was spread an appetising dinner. After partaking of the good things, the Moe boys pre pared for battle. /The weather was all that could be desired, the sunshine being more characteristic o£ avbeautiful spring day than that of a ^itii...

RICE TO HATCH EGGS. A PECULIAR CHINESE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

" RICE TO HATCH EGGS. A PECULIAR CHINESE SYSTEM. Chinese poultry farmers-in tlie dis tricts near Amoy, have a singular sys tem of hatching hens' and ducks' eggs. It is explained in an American consu lar report that the breeder roasts a quantity of unhusked rice and when ic. is lukewarm spreads a 3in. layer in a wooden tub, and places about 100 eggs thereon; another layer of rice is spread over the eggs. Each tub has six layers of rice and live layers of eggs; so that there are 500 eggs in each tub. The rice is heated once every 24 hours, the eggs being taken out at such times. When the eggs are put in the rice again the bottom layer is placed on the top. The chicks and ducklings are produced in from 20 to 30 days.

In future, the clergy of his parish will decline to solemn ise marriages where the scriptural rule is not observed.

When Robert Spencer, of Pennsyl1 vania and Mabel Dockard of Kansas, both membei-s of a theatrical com pany, were married by Judge Miller, of Oklahoma, California, the bride groom invited everyone present to kiss the bride. There was a rush for kisses, but the judge ordered them to' keep their seats while he went into tlie question. Two law books were consulted in a search for a precedent ifor such a proceeding, and the judge finally an nounced that the ageJUmit barred the bridegroom from issuing amy such in vitation.

DISTRICT NEWS. Moondarra. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

, . ■ — 5 — DISTRICT NEWS. (From Our Own -Correspondents). Moondarra. The shortage of railway trucks is impeding the progress of this district entirely, and crippling its maiDStay— the timber industry. !A new engine and more'trucks are badly needed for the Walhalla line, which in all sanity should be given a chance to pay when the trade is here; but it is a well known fact that the best use has not been' made by the Department's officials of trucks already available. For instance, loaded trucks destined for Walhalla are left, standing at stations for several days be fore being taken on. Why this state of affairs should exist is a connundrum to a good many people, especially when thousands of pounds' vrorth of trade is being lost for want of an adequate supply of trucks, and through negligence in keeping what trucks we have in active work on the line. But this narrow-gauge railway has been harmed by unfounded prejudice from its very inception, which perhaps partly accounts for not ha...

Fumina. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 1 July 1914

Fumina. A trip to this distant settlement at the present timo proves something of a revelation in road repairing and con struction. A correct definition of the system would be a no-road policy during the winter months. Time after time the importance of attending to bush roads during the summer months, and thus give them a chance to set, has been pointed out. Parts of this road are in a dreadful condition through earth being thrown in to fill up wheel-tracks during the recent bad weather. Buggies, carts, and waggons are down to the axle bed, and this condition of things will last right through the winter mouths. Whoever is responsible for this state of things had consideration for neither man nor beast, and evidently feels that expen diture is the main point—utility, economy, and everything else of 110 importance. It can only be described as a veritable waste of ratepayers' money.— " Guardian."
