FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 March 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINE8S. "The two main causes of failure in said an observant business man, ' .v ?i'.r as I have studied the ques are incompetence and laziness. "The Krst is, of course, not, as a •vie, emitter in which the sufferer b<? i.eld responsible. If a man be '.aching in natural judgment and j?:;!Uv5* then he must g.» under, al i: von hore honesty, persever ::.a<3 industry would do much to aioue lor the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far tie most pro> line parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and It is largely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who drinlc, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It is they who are extravagant, because the extravagant man Is too lazy to save. The active, energetic fellow Is saved from these vices by his disposition, and could not become a failure so long as he retained his normal character." -.

HONORING THE FIREMEN. ENTERTAINED BY PRESIDENT QUINEY. EULOGISTIC REFERENCES. The citizens of Mortlake, generally, must feel intensely proud | of the members of the Mortlake Fire Brigade at the way in which they distinguished themselves at the recent Bendigo Fire Brigade Demonstration. Being'only a new brigade their performances were highly meritorious, for in every event they were prominent, and it was only by a couple of phenomenal runs, coupled with that necessary requirement—luck—were they de prived' of bringing home both the one-man engine and one-man dis abled event. In the former event Fireman George Clingan took third place, whilst in the disabled event Fireman Oborne tied with the win ner, and was disqualified for doing exactly what other brigades had got through unchallenged. How ever, the Mortlake firemen are good sports, and accepted the decision cheerfully, with the determination that next year they would eclipse this demonstrations running.
