She k:nows that it take'? it; to prolong a qularrel; oa-e can, thci tore, terminate it. She knows that filling a house with bargains is what keeps a couple from . owning the house in which they place them. She knows that proud people seldom have friends. In prosperity they know nobody; in adversit} no one knows them. She knows that to make long-lived friendships one must be slow in mak Ing them.

HOTELS AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
HOTELS AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Ezxprejs. Sir,-Your correspondent, with the "toney" name, says a great deal more than he has any right to say. What right has he to say, what "the people of Werribee" think about the hotel question.? I know. that; there are a good many in Wer ribee who feel shame that our nv-. tion should be imperilled, at the present time, by the hotels' output. And being people of sense, and patri otism, they are very much interested indeed in the way in which the hotel business is conducted. "Hands off the pubs, even though the nation falls!" That's the cry of some, but not of all, I'm glad. to say. Are the Crs. to think of nothing but .Shire. revenue? And is it necessary to tell the Mi.P. that restriction will effect Shire revenue? Could not the gelitle man with the "toney" name assume that the M.P. would know that? Crs. are not abusing their positions in thinking of revenie, but they are doing so when they express opinions on the temperance quest...
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GOOD DAIRY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GOOD DAIRY COW. A cow is nothing more than a ma chine. She consumes quantities of food and converts it into milk. Like other machines, good ones and bad ones will be found. Poor cows are the result of carelessness and\ mis. management. Good cows are the re suit of care and attention. The care and attention must begin with the calf. A good dairy cow must be so brought up that she will manufacture the food he consumes into milk and not into flesh and fat. Of course, it is easier to make A good cow from a well-bred calf than it is to make one from a common scrub, but the latter may often be turned into a valuable cow if the proper judgment is used. "No," she said;, gratefully, " I am sorry, but I cannot give you a favor able answer. I like you, but--'' "Then why do you refuse me?" he demanded. She sighed and hesitated. "Do you suppose," she finally said, with spirit. "that I am going to play second fiddle to that horrid Miss Binks? She has been boasting that she ha...
SLEEPING WITH A RA[?]LER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
-SLEEPING WITH A MA ILtri.. We had wallowed and waded, poled, pushed, and dragged our canoes through mile upon mile of the unchar ted Everglades, and at'night we camp ed early, because the snakes were so' thicl that even our driver wouldn't go on after dark (writes A W. Dim ock in "Van Noden's Magazine"). I chose for my bed a bit of dry ground under a live oak tree, and was about to spread my blanket, when a huge rattlesnake crawled slowly over the site 1- bad selected. I followed the reptile till htie reached the road be hind our waggon, when he coiled and threatened' me. I .was carrying a club. and I hammered his head with it enough to have killed a dozen of his kind, yet he came to life a score of times m my visions that Terrible Night. It as after my first short nap that I heard the rustling in the grass as he extended his head and drew for ward his tail. I recognised the sound of the slow curving of his sinuous body around the obstacles in his path. 1 knew when he stopped that ...
VALUE OF A WIFE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
VALUE OF A WIFE'S SYMPATHY. No man ever prospered in the world without the co-operation of his wife. If she unites in mutual endeavors, or rewards his labors with an endearing smile, with what confidence will he resort to his occupation, meet diffl culty, and encounter danger if he knows that he is not spending his strength in vain, but that his labor will .be rewarded by the sweets of home! Solicitude and disapointment enter the history of every man's life, and he Is but half-provided for his voyage who finds an associate only for happy hours, while for 'his months of dark ness and distress no sympathising partner is prepared.
THE HOME CIRCLE WHAT MEN LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 July 1915
THE HOME CIRCLE L. -' WHAT MEN LIKE. A bright woman writes and asks if we will tell her what are some of the principal qualities in women which most attract men. We think the word attract is not correctly used by our corresptindent, if she will allow us to say so, for often the things in women that attract men are possessions of doubtful value in any woman. What attracts a man is one thing; what will hold him and command his respect is quite another. A woman's smile, for example, a tiracts a man, but an even temper re tains him. A pretty gown attracts a man; the knowledge that it was inexpensive de lights him. A pleasant manner attracts a man; brightness of brain holds him. A respect for the religious belief of every human being attracts a man; irreverence in women is to him abom inable. A consideration for his comfort at tracts a man; a continuation of this makes him your most humble slave. A chat in which there is no malice attracts a man; neither scandal nor evil speaking makes a...

PHOTOGRAPHING LIONS. A Naturalist's Weird Adventures. Mr. A. "Radclyffe Dugmore. F.R.G S. lecturing in Edinburgh (Scotlands on 'Stalking Big Game with a Camera," gave accounts of some exciting exper. lences which he had had in different parts of the world when securing pho tographs of wild animals in their na. tive haunts. When dealing with the more dangerous creatures, the methbod adopted was for the operator to stand with the camera. while a companion stood ready with the loaded rifle In case of a surprise. On one occasion Mr. Dugmore was charged by a rhinoceros. . He got a photograph of it in full career when it was within fifteen yards of him. Buckshot and a soft bullet failed to turn the animal, and Mr. Ongmore's companion danced about In front of it 'aind emptied his revolver into its face at a range of from three to six yards. This did not upset the monster in the least, and Mr. Dugmore had, an anxious moment nefore a Masai at tendant drove a spear eighteen inches into its si...

"Large or small game?" laconically asksd the Briton. who had hunted in every quarter of the globe "You do not expect to find lions and tigers on Long island, do you?" quer. led the New Yorker. *Scarcely." resnonded the other, with a laugh: "'but : ?:ke a spice of danger !n my hunting" "If that's -the case,' answered the Ame,-icaL, with a grin.

ROADSIDE FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915
ROADSIDE FRUIT TREES. Attentioni is called in a recent Con sular report to the thrifty plan follow ed in the province of Hanover. Ger many, of planting the roadsides with fruit trees, the product of which is sold at auction for the benefit of the local government, the revenue thus obtained going a long way towards the upkeep of the roads. Hanover has some 7000 miles of country high ways thus bordered. This year some of the roads yielded a revenue from this source, at the rate of£110 a mile The fruit is protected by law. and during the season of ripening the roads are patrolled by sharp-eyed watchmen, on bicycles, so that little, if any. at the fruit is diverted from its proper destination.
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915
KITCHEN WRINKLES. ., ,emion Juice added to the water when boiling rice will make tie latter snowy white. When a glass stopper will not come out of a bottle, allow one or two drops of glycerine to soak in, and it can be removed quite easily. Few people know that an. onion cut up into four parts, and put in a sick room where there is any infec tious disease, takes in all the infec tion. It is not generally known that a sheet of tin placed over the smallest gas jet will heat two flatirons as quick ly and successfully as burning two lets. Boots and shoes, however damp, will polish in a few minutes if a drop or two of paraffin oil be added to the blacking. It also prevents the leather from cracking. The most nauseous physic may be S given to children without trouble by previously letting them suck a pep oermint lozenge, a piece of alum, or a bit of orange peel. For cleaning boots a strip of car pet glued to a piece of wood will re nove mud very quickly and without t.he slightest injury t...
PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915
PATRIOTISM. By Geo. Fitch. Patriotism is a strange and mys terious enthusiasm which inspires men^ to go out on the battlefield and get shot into human colanders in de fence of their country. It also leads men to stand up in public places and make Invidious re Smarks--concerning the admini'stration which-- Las been running things into the ground. In the old days this pro. ceeding was as fatal as the other "Even in this day a great many pa 1.riots who have criticised Parliament have been compelled to stand up against a cannon's mouth. Patriots are full of love for their country and will do almost anything for it, even to paying taxes will ingly, though patriots of this sort are rare. Patriots have always been plentiful, though the job is unhealthy and the pay very bad, as a rule. Throughout history patriots have been busy making speeches with the sher iff in full pursuit, fighting armies with an old-fashioned musket, which kick ed harder than it shot, and languish ing in damp and badl...

HOTELS AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915
HOTELS AND COUNCIL REVENUE. To the Editor of the Express. Dear Sir,-I see your Correspond ent, with the false name, becomes abusive this week. It would be a nice state of affairs if the Council were composed of ratepayers of your correspondent's class, who would de pend on Parliamentary and other bodies being so vigilant as to find out when the Council had a loss. Whatever right I may have to speak for the "people of Werribee," the general consensus of opinion is that the "people of Werribee" probably think that this milk and water cor respondent is one of the pests to society, who neither pays rates or anything else. In fact, I am pre pared to wager "Ratepayer's" name is not on the roll. I find on enquiry that the Metro. Board is at present prepared to pay the Werribee Coun cil £200 per annumn as rates, but- on condition that this amount be. not exceeded at any time. As it is pos sible this amount may be increased, the Crs. refuse to accept this set amount at present. Congratulatio...
