FOR THOSE IN LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
FOR THOSE IN LOVE. ' - Certainly there Is wisdom for two young people who have sworn to love each other, no matter whether there Is poverty or wealth, no matter wheth er the days are bright or dark, to have a home of their own. Boarding house life is bad for women, and I do not believe that any man has really enjoyed it. God created women to make homes—to make homes for the men they love, and for the children whom God will send to them. A home must be started at the be ginning of this new life. Do not wait for a big house and many servants, but make happiness exist in a little house. It can be dpne. I know it can. Do not shrug your shoulders and say you do not like housework. ;> Work is ... disagreeable only when • badly done; and, from washing the silver and glass or dusting the bric-a brac and beating up a cake, everything may be daintily done and well done if you go about it in the right way, and with the right spirit. You will have to be considerate, and /ou will have to be p...

KEEP PACE WITH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
KEEP PACE WITH THEM. "I do not believe in the wail I oc casionally" hear from parents that they are being out-distanced by their chil dren in educational attainments," said an energetic matron. "We should keep pace -with them. "I heard a mother complain the oth er day that, although she had, in her young days, been a proficient pianiste, she was ashamed to touch the piano nowadays, for fear of being laughed tt by her clever daughters. . "Her proper course would have been to keep up her own practice a little, tnd her old accomplishment would loon revive. "Much the same appHes to other studies in which the young folk shine by contrast with us older people. We had the knowledge once, in most cases, but we have let it grow rusty. It would, not require much effort to furbish it up again, and thus render us able to enter sympathetically an&lt;! helpfully in to our children's studfes."

FROZEN MEAT INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
FROZEN 'MEAT INDUSTRY. The frozen meat industry, from one year to another, has been getting bet ter, and now it can truthfully be said that the prospectB never looked brighter. -This is in spite of the iiin crease in sheep values and a general , disorganisation of trade through in dustrial differences. That the trade 111 frozen meat , will go on improving is pretty certain, for the reason that other markets besides London are awakening to the fact that'Australian frozen meat is of the quality to build up and maintain trade. America, by reason of her new tariff should, in the near , future, be a veryr valuable ad junct .to the .London market.' Perhaps one reason for the buoyancy of the market and the promising expansion of trade is the increasing application of frozen meat both in England and on.' the Continent. As regards the latter market, however, a doubt exists as to . ! the probable duration of profitable markets, for the reason that Vested ■ ! agrarian interests are sure to act...

! WITH VILLA IN MEXICO, i I "The army," explains John Reid, |[ writing from Juarez, Mexico, "about ' 2p0 Norsemen and 500 infantry, were 1 drawn up in a great hollow square t'wo ranks deep, completely surround ing that immense plaza in front of the race track. They were in all stages of attire, of course, but much more uniform than the federals at Ojouaga. About two-thirds of them had blue denim suits (overall stuff), and the rest more or less khaki. But every soldier had a different bright colored handkerchief around his neck, and a different colored serape strap ped on his saddle—all colors, vivid and faded, and mottled like leopard skins. Their faces were STRONGLY INDIAN. for the most part, very dark—there were small boys not 14 years old, I should guess, too— but their riding boots were magnificently varied, some reaching to the hip, and ornamented down the sides with buckles like sil ver dollars. They rollicked around like kids, stealing rides on street cars, making football ru...

A BURIAL IN TONGA. CEREMONY IN SOUTH SEA ISLE. By Te Pana. The big cliief was dead. Almost as ' rapidly as the force that sends news speeding along strands of wire under seas and over land sped the mouth carrieli message. ! It penetrated into neat villages in the interior, and ! travelled to palm shaded huts strewn along the sands guarded by spray cov- ■ ered reefs. The big chief died last night. That was the message. Out | to tiny islands it 'went, tori isolated plantations, to parties at kava, to 'head men" in the midst of harangu ing their people, to college students poring over books. The big chief died last night. It was enough. Respect j is instinct with the Tongan. Custom, . habit has it, that all people shall be | at the ceremony of laying great men ' at rest. And the big chief WAS a i great man. He had worked well for his country; step by step mounted higher until he saw over the palm tops land view the sea and the spray from 'afar, and the people from the level places jump...
ARBOR DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 July 1914
ARBOR DAY. Arbor Day was celebrated at tbe Moe State School on Friday last. Soon after dinner, several parents assembled at the school. Tbe pupils sang a number of school songs, and their efforts in this direction were ap preciated by the visitors. The head teacher [Mr C. J. C. Baker], in a few appropriate remarks, thanked the ladies and others present for the interest they were evincing in school affairs. He then introduced Mr Wuttrich, who gave an interest ing and highly-instructive address on '* Arboriculture." This address con tained much useful information, as may be imagined when it is stated that Mr "Wuttrich is not only a Bota nist in .theory but also in practice, he having made a special study and hobby I of the work for very many years past. At the close of his address, Mr Wuttrich presented pieces of vine to several ladies present—to plant at their homes. - The children were then called upon to give three cheers for Mr Wuttrich, and the request was heartily responded to. ...
