THE GOLDEN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 January 1914
THE GOLDEN AGE. At twenty Jim set out to find Ajob, tho sort he had in mind; He was ambitious—boys should hi—; And thought, I'll sooner climb a tree By .starting near the top—Which truth Should bo impressed upon our youth. But sad it is to state, the tn-n Who'd jobs to giro said, "C.ill again When you aro older , and we'll see— You need experience, dignity." At thirty Jim was trying still . To find a job which he could fill, But now no longer time did waste In nocking one to suit his taste; He still preferred the top, but said : "I'll take the foot, if not' the head." "Ahem!" the answer came, "you are Too old to start, too old by far, And y»:t too young to boss the show— Come back within a year or so." At forty Jim had not yet made The landing he'd so lo.iR es-ayid. The years hall thinned his raven hair 'To call him bald 'twere scarcely fair), But brought him wisdom, so t4iat he Cried. ' I'll take anything, you seel" Again they sharply looked him o'er. And shook their heads: "AhJin!...

A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 January 1914
A DREAM. An Irish peasant dreamt ho was vis iting the late Queen Viotoria, and was. asked by the Queen what he would like to drink. When he expressed the humble wish for a glass of the liquor associated with the name of Jameson, and, when the Queen, still full of hos pitality, wanted to know whether he would take it hot or cold, lie was foolish enough to prefer it hot. As the kettlo was not boiling, her Ma jesty in the dream hastened to make up the fire with her own hands, whilst her thirsty and loyal Irish subject waited anxiously. Alas, when the water came to the boil the noiso of the steam awoke him 1 •I'll take it cold next time!" he said, ivithr,Trm2u' -?ret.

THE OLD HEROINES AND THE NEW. As wo all know, tlio Dickons women all play an unimportant second fiddle to tlio men. .Dickens had tlio good fortune to live in a day when a wo- ' man's character was more or less a straightforward business, from his nice Florence Dombsy to liis horrible Mrs. Gamp. No one dreamt of specialising in the complicated mechanism of female temperaments, chiefly because it liad not been invented. Your Dickens women present 110 hysterical problems dillifult to comedy. I congratulate myself that somtouo else, not I, will h.nc to filiate on our Hardy and Mer edith wr.ui.'u at the coming centenar ies to be. But we make such rapid strides nowadays that probably, a lew vein's liciio?, even they will ssem no more than wooden dolls lacking subt lety and realism to a new, super-souled generation.
