A Rejoinder (TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAINBOW ARGUS) [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914
A Rejoinder &lt;T0 THE EDITOR OF THE KAIXBOTT AHGU8) Sir,—In your issue of . 20th December a letter appeared over the signature of "Fair Play" in reference to the the Outlet Creek bridge. Now, Mr. Editor, it appears to me that the letter has been written in a spirit of fault finding, because no valid reasons are put forward why the site of the proposed bridge should be. a mile or two down the creek. "Fair Play" says the bridge will cost £2000, whereas Engineer D'Alton estimates the cost at less than half that amount. The primary object of erecting the bridge is to suit the convenience of farmers carting their produce to the new railway station at Albacutya, but if the. bridge were put across the creek lower down, those farmers who would cross the bridge there might just as well come into Rain bow—which they undoubtedly would do—because there would not. be much difference in the distance. As a disinterested rate payer, I say emphatically that the gentlemen to whom this questi...

TO AVOID NERVE TROUBLES. Never sleep or stay in a close room. When indoors remain in tli" sun niest and best-ventilated rnn-n—one, if possible, which has no cnrpet. Have at least one window open in yottr bedroom. Have a room to yourself when pos sible, and, at any rate, have your own bed. Go to bed early and sleep at least eight" hours. Avoid draughts, dampness, dust and smoke. Keep your feet warm and dry. Don't wear a chest protector. If you have to work, take .every chance to rest that you can. Avoid eating when mentally or bod ily tired, or when in a state of ner vous excitement. Eat plenty of good and wholesome food. Husband (handing his wife some money): "There, Amelia, is five ■winds and it has botheied me a lit tle to get it fo>- }ou. 1 think I deserve i little applause." Wife: "Applause? my dear, you deserve an encore.'' Mother: Johnny, you said you'd been to Sunday school. Johnny (with a far-away look) Yes, mamma.

Diplomacy. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914
Diplomacy. / Sunday passed. Tuesday rolled around, and still his tall form did not loom in the vestibule when the cuckoo clock was sounding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl was burning with wrath. "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What hare you to say for yourself? Why didn't you come?" "I couldn't," faltered the young man. "I had the dyspepsia, and the doctor told me not to come." "What! The doctor told you not to come to see me because you had dyspepsia?" "Well, he told me to keep away fro-:i all sweets." The next moment she had him seat ed on the couch telling him he was the nicest young man in the world.
TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914
TRUE ECONOMY. Economy and economise are two much-used words, but sometimes, we fear, they are falsely applied. Econo ! my as practised by some persons is nothing but extravagance, although one might have much trouble in con vincing the person of the truth of this statement. If one wastes time doing work which might be employed in doing something of more importance—even though the I work be very necessary—it is not prac tising economy. He might better hire some other person to have the work done and employ his own I time at the thing for which he is fit j ted. I A housekeeper who insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for j which she is not physically able may j think she is very economical, but if she gets sick, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several washings or hire several dresses made by a dressmaker and save her the suffering beside. What is the use of buying a cheap pair of shoes that cost possibly half as much as a good pair, and have the soles...

Just the Reverse. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914
Just the Reverse. A kind-hearted and witty clergyman, entering the house of one of his el ders one morning found the gocd old man unmercifully whipping oi>e cf his sons, a lad 'iboi't fourteen yfars old, and he at once be^an to intercede for the boy. The deacon defended himself by saying that "the youth must be early trained in the way he should go.

A Sudden Death . The death occurred with tragic suddenness on Friday evening, at her home in Firebrace-street, Horsham, of Miss Ann Jane I-Iickey, at the age of 37 years. It appears that several relatives n£ the deceased from YVomvondah. East had spent the day with, deceased's family, and on their departure in the evening Miss Hickey went to see them away. As she did not return her sister went to look for her, and found her in a half-lying position. Scar ing the worst, she communicated with the police, and Dr. Jlead was summoned, but on examination pronounced life extinct. Deceased,, who was very well known in the town, had not complained of ill-, health recently, and, acting on the instructions of the Deputy Coroner, Dr. Read held a post mortem examination at the mor tuary, on perusing which the Coroner found that death was due to heart failure. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon to Horsham cemetery, and was one of the largest seen for some time, thus evidencing the esteem ...

Fire in Taverner Street THREE-ROOMED COTTAGE DESTROYED [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914

Pickett, and owned by Mr. J. Lehmann, o! South Australia, was completely destroyed with nil its ontcnts. Hew tlie 'outbreak occurred is a mystery, but it is surmised that some of the coals in the kitchen fire place must have fallen out. Mrs. Pickett states that she had been baking in the kitchen a short time previous to the out break, but. when the alarm was. given was busily engaged; washing outside^ A full muster of firemen under the coiiimand of Captain A.

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914
THE VALUE OF COURAGE. . A great deal of talent is lost in the world for the want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves a num ber of obscure men who have only re mained in obscurity because of their timidity, which has prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they could have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nice fcliances; it did well before the Flood, when a man could consult his friends upon an in tended publication for 150 years, and then live to see his success afterwards, but at present a man waits, and doubts and consults his brother and his par ticular friends, till one fine day lie finds that he is sixty years of age; that he has lost so much time i...
