A. J. C. Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 1 January 1904
A. J. C. Races. As usual the Summer Cup Meeting held at Rindwick on Boxing Day passed off very successfully, the attendance numbering about 15,000 which is considered above the average for a holiday meeting. Among those present we noticed many familiar faces from the country. The course was in capital going order and the appointments excellent. The lawns presented quite an attractive picture with hundreds of daintily dressed ladies promenading in rich and attractive costumes. His Excellency Sir Harry Raw son, Lady Rawson, and a party from Go vernment House was present to witness the running of the Summer Cup. Racing com menuced with the Hurdlos which Transvaal annexed in a business-like manner from Santinvader, Rodock being third.

William Clarke, of Chal der-street, Marriokville : "I was living six years ago in West Aus-. tralia," said IMr. Clarke, "and I have good reason to remember that fact, because it was there that I broke down in health from a complaint which I thought' I would naever get rid of.

CHAPTER XXVIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 1 January 1904
OHAPTER XXVIII. THE little group in the adjoining room scarcely noticed the prolonged absence of Sir Michael and his wife in their pleasure at greeting the new comer and the many questions and answers that a week's absence entailed. George Wyndham looked so bright and alert, he brought such a breath of life and work in among themo, that Hilary felt her spirits revive. She was happy listening to him, answering his questions as to where they had been and what they had seen, and hearing about the work he had been doing. She could scarcely imagine how be would &nbsp; look as a barrister in his wig and gown, but; on the whole, she was inclined to think they would be becoming. Then there was Mr Carrington's work to be inquired after; and she blushed to hear the old clergyman's commendation of herself. At length Mr Carrington rose, it being his custom never to sit up late. Michael and Vivian are in, there he &nbsp; said to George, indicating the inner room, where they could...

Married School Teachers, [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 January 1904
Married School Teachers, A CORRESPONDENT writing to the Daily Telegraph from the country expresses as tonishment at the fact that in his town the husband of the sohoolmistress holds fairly important Government position. He states that this is contrary to the rules and practice of the Public Instruction Department, and wants to know how it is that an exception is made in that town. An inquiry upon the matter Was on Wednesday made. b' Mr Perry, and the Minister says there is nothing whatever in the contention of the corre- pondent. There is nothing in either the rules or the practice of the department preveinting the wife of a Government servant holding a position as a school teacher,. In fact, there are numerous instances :in the departmont where this is the 'case, and it also frequently happens that teachers in the service marry other teachers.

HOW TO GROW RICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 5 January 1904
HOW TO GROW R101. Ia N this sordie world the man who lacks the in. stinot for trade can never become wealthy. * Extraordinary ability in art literature, or soience will at best obtain for its possessor no more than a comfortabie competence. Probably there will never be a time when the combined possessions of the greatest painter, writer, and scientist will a not be exceeded by the fortune of a single'mor. chant. These reflections induce one to ask, What are the qualities essential to a successful trader I Toflully answer that question would need more space than this newspaper contains ; but it may I he said right here, without hesitation, that, the ? first essential in a meachant is sound health. Those two simple words include the qualities of industry and cheerfu'nese. These are not the Sonly qualities needful for success in trading, but they are the principal ones. To enjoy sound health, a man must digest his food properly. A very iew-ab, ut one in a thousand-do so perfectly. They...
