THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 18 July 1914
THE DAIRY ---+ ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION.. It takes time to see a thing on all its sides and especially to test it; results. It is so with these cow-test. ing associations. -A Wisconsin sub scriber writing us recently said that one of the most important effects of cow-testing was that it tests out the cow owner as well as the cow. "That is the reason," he said, "why you see so many farmers unwilling to en gage in it. They are afraid of them selves as well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, but we art confident it is a true one in many cases. There is such a lot of farm. ers keeping cows who have no pride in their business, who are willing tc do business with a lot of inferior. money-losing cows, provided they _ thought their neighbours did nol know it, that it is hard to react them by .any appeal to sound, busi ness principles. Any other class of men would have a horror: ijn keeping, for instance, a stack of goods or set of machiner-- that they ...

(All Rights Reserved.) -,'T HE Secret s1an. A Story of a Strange and Exciting Adventure. By W. Murray Graydon, Author of "Matthew Quin," "The Curse of the Cardews," etc., etc. PART 14. CHAPTER XXXVIII. A THRILLING MEETING. The Russian was brief and to the point, explaining what he had to say very clearly. Dick was to swim out to the Malta, and through Grenville obtain an interview with the com manders of the two cruisers. This conference, it was hoped, would re sult in a speedy, settlement as pro posed in behalf of the conspirators; which, in substance, was as follows: At 12 o'clock on the next night, by means of a previously-laid torpedo, the thin shell of rock on the seaward side of the cliff was to be blown up. Through the passage which was cer tain to be opened a hundred marines in boats were to advance at once and make a landing straight across the lagoon. Here they would be join ed by a few of Volborth's men, and led without delay to the forcing of the North Gate. The other co...

Personal. Mr and Mrs H. C.

QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
QUEENSLAND'S PEARLING GROUNDS. The pearl fisheries of Northern Aus tralia are the most lucrative and the least understood of the world's fisheries. The pearling- grounds, as they are termed locally, extend along the north-east and northern coasts of Queensland. In years gone by. diving was mostly carried' on by naked divers in comparatively shal Low waters, but the use of the diving dress is now almost universal. The profits of pearling are enormous. The 'wages of the divers range from £1' to £2 per month, and a "lay" of £20 on each ton of shell lifted. The diver's tender is paid £4 per month, and the four members of the crew, 30/ to £2 10/. per month. These are the wages the men sign articles at, .but comparatively little money is paid, as the crews more often than not "cut out" their wages in "slop chest," viz., goods purchased from the master-pearler, who makes more than 150 per cent. clear profit from this part of the business alone. The pearling boats are worked from a schooner...
MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN HOLLAND. ------- A curious old custom still exists in many provinces of Holland. If a young man. is in love with a girl, and wishes to ask her hand in mar riage, he goes about it in the follow ing manner. He buys a small sweet cake, .and, wrapping it. up in' soft paper, proceeds to the house of his inamorata; upon his arrival, he is ushered into the midst of the family circle; without a word, he walks up to the young lady he wishes to make his wife, and lays the cake on the table before her. The rest of the family affect not to notice anything unusual, and .continue their work, or their reading. The young man turns aside and talks to the father or mother on some very ordinary sub ject, keeping his eyes eagerly fixed on the girl's face while he is conversing. If she accepts his offer, she takes up the cake and eats it. Sometimes. though Dutch, she is coquettish, and tortures the young man by turning it over and playing with it, before she decides to bite it, and t...
Original Poetry. RESIGNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
Original Poetry. RESIGNATION. Life once wore a smiling face, 'Twas then a field of truth and grace, Nor'longed thou-for a fairer place, In days gone past.. But lost joys seldom we reclaim, And now things do not seem the same, For a ruthless change one season came, And came to last. Hopes lie submerged by doubts and fears, Sad tired eyes are dim with tears, And a heavier heart turns towards the years With bitter sigh. Thy path has now grown strangely cold, Thy dream of youth has lost its gold. No joys the opening days unfold, Since love passed by. What tho' love be broken, toss'd, Thy purest faith be shattered, lost, Tho' bitter the aching wound it cost, It may be best. Sad heart, if though would find relief, There's none in cherishing thy grief, Thy life has many another leaf. Be calm and rest. For not alway thy heart's desire Can the noblest thoughts inspire, And pain, like a refining fire Oft moulds the heart. Tis hard to stifle deep regret, Forget? alas, 'tis-vain, and yet Thou c...

FOOTBALL, Queenscliff (11-10) Beat Portarlington (3-4) A Runaway Victory. .Portarlington Outclassed. This was the only competition match on Saturday last, and it at tracted a large number of spectators, who witnessed a one-sided game. Queenscliff took command in the early stages and maintained the position throughout, bringing about an easy victory. Ports included several juniors, which from all accounts are to remain in the team but the weak spots were soon dis covered by 'Oliver' and his faithful band, and there was no trouble or anxiety as to the result. The game at time was good and there was strong determination, but Queenscliff prevailed easily. In the opening quarter Ports failed to score, while Cliff registered 22 points, Knight, Hewitson, and Werry.scored the goals. Scores at quarter time: ,liff ... 3 gls 4 bhds Ports Nil The second quarter was perhaps• the most even for the whole match.

Sunday Corner. God's Unchanging Love. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 25 July 1914
Sunday Corner. God's Unchanging Love. Human love may change. The friendship of last year has grown cold. The gentleness of yesterday has turned to severity. But it is never thus with God's love. It is eternal. Our expierence of it may be variable, but there is no variable ness in the love. Our lives may change, our consciousness of his love may fade out; but the love clings for ever, the gentleness of God abides eternal. 'For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.'

At the very first note Polly opened her eyes in surprise,, and then flew .t her perch, where she rocked her self to and fro in deep and speechless astonishment, while the mnachine Sground out the air. " There, Polly," said Mrs. Waddle, when the song had come to an end. " What do you think of that ?" "My word," shrieked the old bird bis head on one side, and winking wickedly, " my , word, my word, my word ! We've got the old man boxed this time and no mistake."
