QUESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
QUESTIONS. Among the questions asked was, "Are you in favor of Scripture lessons being taught in State schools ?" Mr Biggar favored a referendum on the subject; Mr Morrison was opposed to it. He did not approve of. the referendum, for the .only constitutional way of making' an Act of Parliament was by order of the King, acting on the advice of his Ministerse. The people sent nen in to Parliament to- represent .hem, and why should any man oe expected to sink his private )pinion to vote against his con. victions ? Those who supported the referendum- should be con istent and support that plank of the Labor platform that was in ravor of the Initiative Referendum. If that were in force, it would mean that most of the governing would be done by the Labor masses in cities, and the country vote would be practically valueleess. And he did not think it would he wire to hand over the reins of Government to the Labor Party. Rev Goo Paul: Are you in favor of subsidising Roman Catholic schools ? ...
MR MORRISON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
MR MORRISON. Mr Morrison said he recognised that in attempting, to follow the high example set by. Mr Graham he had a very hard task, but he hoped, if elected to Parliament, not to fall short of the ideals set by Mr Graham. The objection had often been raised that there were too many lawyers in Parlia ment, but when he (Mr Morrison) looked at the roll of famous men who had done noble work for their country, and saw the great number of gentlemen among them belonging to the profession to which he belonged, he did not think those who made such re. marks had given the matter sufficient thought. He had prac tised in the Valley for 20 years, and the whole of his interests were centered in this district. In his practice and private life, he had been brought into very close touch with farmers and townspeople, and he knew their requirements. He had had to study the district closely, and his' I relations had considerable money invested in the Valley, so they could see that he had faith in the...

MR A. BIGGAR. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
n1R A. BIGGAR. Mr Biggar considered he had a .just claim to represent the con stituency, for he was a resident of the district, farmed 500 'acres of land, and conducted an auctioneer ing business. He had been asked .by many to contest the seat, and while he recognised it would take up a lot of his time, he had de termined to do his duty ungrudg ingly if they were pleased to re turn him. The farming interest was a most important one in poli tics. It was difficult to speak without a platform to refer- to. Tnere was at present-since there would be another session of Par liament -no policy to address him. self to. Mr Watt had recently said he was going for a vigorous country policy, and he would sup port him in that. Land settlement should be one of the main planks. There were yet millions of acres of productive land unsettled, and every effort should be mode to get people on the land. Railways should be constructed and water provision made. In the Malice there were great areas capable ...

DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
DO WE. LIVE LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches among the tombs of Ro man times in Italy and Spain are far from proving this. There was certainly a larger infant mortality, but the expectation of life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equal to our own, and after sixty the Romans had the advantage. Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach ing 100 years. Tile longevity of the Romans was due to a high infant mortality. Only the fit survive. By taking great care of the young we have reduced thi mortality, but at the same time we have not added to the average length of life. This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli cate survive childhood, they do not as a rule live to old age. A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman had a less chance of living to twenty, but if he survived he had a greater c...

THE DEAD'S CARE FOR THE LIVING SOUL. A Strange Story With a Strange Sequel. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
THE DEAD'S CARE FOR THE LIVING SOUL. A Strange Story With a Strange Sequel. A strange ghost story, in which the principals are said to be people of the highest social position, is, according to the "Express," engaging the atten tion of London society. A Kensington vicar was leaving the church after choir practice when a lady stepped out of the a:sle and ask ed him in agitated tones to come with her at once to an address near by. "A gentleman is dying there," she said. "He is extremely .concerned about the state of his soul and anx ious to se you oefore he dies." The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cab, and a short drive round the corner brought them to a mansion. The lady, who seemed to be extremely agitated, urged the vicar to hurry. He sprang out of the cab, rang the bell, and a butler appeared. "Does Mr. - live here?" "Yes, sir." "I hear he is seriously ill and has sent for me." The butler seemed astonished al most beyond words. He expostulated that his master was not il...

IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS RESULTS. When people generally under stand that all such fatal diseases as Fistula, Ulcer of the Rectum. Fissure, etc, almost invariably begin in a simple case of Piles, they will learn the wisdom of Doan's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles, Itching, Bleeding, Protruding, and Blind Piles, and hundreds of lives have been ,saved by using this cheap but affective remedy right at' the start, because at such .times a single pot has often affected a cure, while in the old, deep-seated, chronic cases several pots are sometimes necessary. Here is a case. Mr Henry Young, Blacksmith, Mende-street, Shepparton, says : " For eighteen months I was un fortunate enough to be troubled with Itching Piles, the irritation being at times very trying.

A Lincoln Story. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
A Lincoln Story. On one occasion when lie was busy, President -Lincoln received a dlelega tion of men who were endeavoring to hurry the passing of some petty Bill. When they entered, Lincoln looked up gravely and said: "If you call the tail of a sheep a leg, how many legs will the sheep have?" "Five!" said the spokesman. "No," replied Lincoln, "it would onlly have four; calling the tail a leg wouldn't make it one." The delegation departed in discom fiture, and Lincoln was. left alone.
A MILK-WHITE STEED. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 23 April 1914
A MILK-WHITE STEED. A school teacher once set his class of boys a composition on the "horse," the following being given: "The horse is a very noble beast, he eats oats and sawdust. He goes on four legs. He does not stay out late at night, nor pull faces at his little sister, nor tease his grandmother, things which I think is bully for the horse. He does not have to wash his face in the morning. (I wish I was a horse.) There is many differ ent kinds of horses: saw horse, omni bus horse, war horse, hoss-radish, lioss pistol, Colt's revolver and a donkey (he ain't got nothing to do with the subject, but we'll throw him in). There's only one kind that's good to eat, and that's hoss-pistol-I mean, hoss-radish. Some folks like a reddish horse, then again, some like a milk-white steed, with flowin' tail and main erect, but for me, give me a coal-black steed with fiery-red nos trils and flashin' eye, obr.gimme death. I forgot to say that a horse has a tail, and can unfold it like Hamlet or ...
