BACCHUS MARSH MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915

BACCHUS MARSH MARKET. Messrs. McPhail Bros. & Co. held their monthly fair in the Bacchul Marsh Corporation yards on Mon day last, 26th inst. A large number of farmers attended, and good grass prospects, caused them to look up stock to graze. An average supply of cattle (including some choice quality dairy sorts) was penned, while prices were at an exceedingly high level, everything being cleared at top rates.

BALLIANG. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Messrs. S. Beggs, S. Firth, R. Edols, and H. Howard, have enlisted for. active service. It is the inten • tion of the residents to give them a send-off. The monthly dance in Mr. Bur gess' barn, in aid of Red Cross fund, was held last Saturday, and proved a splendid success. Mr. Charlie Beggs, the W-ell-known horse dealer, has-topped the market at Geelong for the last 10 sales. Mr. Beggs has proved himself to be a good judge of a horse. The crops at Balliang are grow ing by the yard. All we want now is a good spring.' The road to the Marsh is in a 'dreadful state, and people can hardly get along it. Wake up! Shire Coun cil," and give, us a decent road, as promised years ago.

BACCHUS MARSH DEBATING SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915

BACCHUS MARSH DEBATING SOCIETY. '*hat the miser does less harm to .the community than the spend thrift," was the controversy at the last meeting. Mr. H. H. Blight who opened in the affirmative, said some' people looked on the miser as a person with long bony hands, who counted his money every night, and again in the morning to see if it was all there. He contended the miser was a man of keen financial intellect, who invested his money in loans, &c., and was one of the greatest as sets the community had. To obtain his money the miser must have been sober, industrious, and of good char acter. One never heard of a miser going insolvent, which was another good asset. The tradesman had to make provision against the spend thrift's bad debts by increasing the cost of his goods, which we all hadt to pay. The spendthrift was abso lutely of no use to the community whatever, as he usually squandered his money in hotels and gambling. Rev. B. Williams retorted that the miser was a mean, ...

BLACKWOOD. (nROM OUR OWN CORRISPONDENT.) A concert, in aid of the funds of the Church of England, was held on Saturday, and there was a fair at tendance. The programme was..al most entirely given by the juniors (ably trained by Mrs. Parsons) all of whom acquitted themselves well. Amongst the many excellent items the "Chinese character song," by the boys, is worthy of special men tion, and had to be repeated. Re freshments were thoughtfully pro vided by the ladies of the congrega tion, and competitions brought an Senjoyable evening to a close. At a meeting of the committee of the Mechanics' Institute- it was de cided to ask the Ballan Shire Coun cil to erect a lamp at the corner of the road leading to the Institute, the committee undertaking to be.-re sponsible for its maintenance. It was suggested that one of the dis cairded lamps formerly in use in the Ballan township might be found suitable.

I trust that my example will be followed by all who spend money unnecessarily, .viz., tobacco, face powder, &c. Should your cor respondent wish to present the but tons mentioned in his letter, I would gladly supply them, provided "One who likes dancing" will present them, as suggested.-Yours faithfully "K.

RED CROSS DANCE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915

RED CROSS DANCE. To the Editor -of the Express. \Dear Sir,-Kindly grant us space to, reply to that "able and patriotic" letter of the individual who nobly signs himself "One who likes danc ing." Was our friend aware, when he penned his epistle, that the local Red Cross committee were short of funds; and the matter was discussed among them as to the best means of raising such, and the outcome -was a proposal to hold a dance. Several gentlemen were approached, and a meeting was advertised to sound the public on the matter. Now, the Committee appointed would like to know why our "worthy"-friend did not attend this meeting, and then and there, in a straightforward man ner,-put forth his or her views, in stead of waiting till matters were well advanced- before giving - their opinion, with the object, no doubt, of making the dance a financial fail ure. We honestly doubt whether your correspondent's opinion is of others as well, as stated, as several townspeople have expressed them selves ...

To the Editor of the Express. Sir,-In his tilt against a local effort (which is certainly in aid of a. good cause) it is strange your cor respondent did not include in his condemnation the coming Pierrot en tertainment, for surely it is no more wrong "to dance" than "to laugh" over our brothers' open grave. I take it that the promoters have good motives in running the dance, and would remind the said correspon dent (who has a suspicion of wows erism) that there is recorded an in junction-"Let not your good be evil spoken of." "One who likes dancing" would not commit a grave sin if he took a ticket for both dance and entertainment.-Yours, &c., CONSISTENCY.

What It Seemed Like. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915

What It Seemed Like. The aged motor-van was somehow always getting out of repair, and it usually indulged in a little breakdown about once a week, in order to vary an otherwise monotonous existence. Slowly it snorted its. way into the broad stream of traffic, when there was a sudden whirring of wheels, a loud snap, and the weary and worn framework came to a dead stop. "Look here," said the policeman to the driver, "this kind of thing. is oc curring too often. Let's see, what's your number? Yes, 1588!" "Go on!" said the precocious youth who was in charge of the cart Im mediately behind. "That ain't its number. That's the year it was built!"

BACOHUS MARSH SHOW. (To the Editor of the "Express"). Dear Sir,-The Melbourne Show will not be held this year, owing to the pressure on all resources by the war, and there will be great difficul ties to be overcome by that Society, owing chiefly to the Draught Horse Produce Stakes, Cattle Derbies, con tracts already entered into;' &c., and I trust the Bacchus Marsh Commit tee will abandon the idea of holding their show here in October liext, for many reasons. Firstly-That owing to the long drought just passed through, the exhibits will be less, and worse eten than at last year's show. Secondly-That great diffi culty will be experienced in getting members and donations, for firms and business people are not going to give to this, and assist all Red Cross and numbers of other urgent appeals for our wounded soldiers. Thirdly--That the public are busily engaged in similar appeal work, and have no time to work up a show. There is no satisfaction in holding a show that will not be...

PIN PRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 31 July 1915

PIN PRICKS. There has been much comment con cerning the danger of bat-pins, and complaints that they amount to a pub lic nuisance and common danger. For one prick sustained by accidental con tact with a hat-pin, millions of pin pricks are purposely given by means of that unruly little member the ton gue. Think over all the delicious little pricks you have administered, and how pleased you were with yourself for thinking of them. They were so smart, and to the point, and no one 'could pin you down and say you were nasty and ill-natured. But there is another aspect. Sup pose those pricks fester and grow sore. They will lose your friends. Who can afford that loss? Would it not be better to be as a healing balm, soothing the pin-pricks and wounds of others instead of contributing to what makes life miserable?
