rpHB GREAT COVENANT By Paatpr RUSSELL. Test: "I have sworn, saith Jchova!l, v . : That I will greatly bless tliee, and 1 will exceedingly multiply tliy seed aa the stars of lieav.en and as the sand which is upon the seashore. . . And in becom ing thy seed Bliall all the nations oi the earth bless themselves." Sis thonsand years fgo, in Eden, our Maker, in justly sen tencing His disobedi (ent children to death, intimated that ulti mately the Seed of the woman would [bruise the Serpent's head. This hidden promise was the first intimation of the (Divine mercy which our gracious Creator purposed in Himself from before the foun dation of the world. Long cen turies after, God spoke to Abra ham, after foist testing his faith and loyalty. To him God mentioned the fame great Deliverer who would bruise the Serpent's head, and gave assurance that this one would, in some way, be identified with Abraham's posterity, so thai lie might properly be called the Seed of Abraham. God'B promise to Abrah...

THE GOLFING WOMAN. I "Harry simply hates staying thore. Ho says hti'd rather spend a woek-ond in a golf pavilion any day." "Does her husband like it?'"5* "Well, of course, it's a little difficult to judge; one can only guess! Harry says it would drive him mad!" The two friends were discussing an athletic girl of their acquaintance, who ' had lately married. "But, you know," continued one of the two, "men are such contrary crear tures. They go raving mad over 'sport ing' girls, the 'real good pal' sort, and then when they'ro married and settled down they start grumbling because there's no peaceful quiet~at home, and the hand that rocks the cradle wields a Her friend smiled. "Yes; but hus bands aren't so terribly unreasonable, golf club instead of darning the socks!" after all. Really, you know, beforo ind after marriage does make a differ ence!

SLEEP FOR THE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 10 July 1914
SLEEP FOR THE CHILD. A liealtbv child for tlio first two j nontlis or so spends most of its timo isleep. After that a baby should have j it least two hours sleep in the forenoon, and one hour in the afternoon, and it is quite possible to teach almost any in fant to adopt this as a regular habit. Even to the age of four or live years a child should have one hour of sleep, or at least rest in bed, before its din ner, and it should be put to bed at six nr seven in the evening, and left undis turbed for twelve or fourteen hours. Up to the fifteenth year most young people require ten hours, and till the twentieth year, nine hours. After that age every one finds out how much ho or sho re quires, though as a general rule six or eight hours are necessary. Eight hours' sleep will prevent moro nervous de rangement in women than any medi eiue can cure. During growth there must be ample sleep if the brain is to develop to its full extent, and the more nervous, excitable, or precocious a child i...

The Federal Fight. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 10 July 1914
The Federal Fight. OF the many illiterative phrases which tickle the ears of the un thinking, few have been more greviously overworked than Mr Deakin's " necklace of negatives." The words were spoken at what, to use another expression much mouthed at the time, was the " psychological moment." Labor had succeeded, or was succeeding, in forcing a bide bound party system on a reluctant community. The Democrats of that day found that they must join Labor in the move towards ill considered nationalization, or must halt till less advanced Liberals overtook them. The outcome was Labor's sensational victory of 1910. Gradually, the Liberal Party massed, with the result that in 1913 it turned crushing defeat into semi-victory. But face to face with a factious Opposition, and with' a majority of but one, Ministers had to act much as th'ough the Liberal Party were a necklace of negatives.. Naturally Labor makes the most of all that, and it is necessary that every Liberal in -the fighting ranks ...
