DAMNING AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 13 June 1914
DAMNING AUSTRALIA. Recently an Englishman living in Sydney wrote to the "London Finan cial Times" and said, inter alia :-"In sending immigrants here, do send business ones. Of all unbusinesslike people, I am sure the Australians are the worst. There are not 1 per cent, of business men in Sydney. The one thought is pleasure. The business part of life is a scctnl ron sideration, and it is a 1 .amin'able fact how quickly a smart Fng'i&h man run3 into the same groove as tho Australian. The point is, there are not enough sirart men h?re to keep the smart men up to scratch; the consequence is, everyoie becomes slower and slower." When this appeared there happt n;d to be in London a good Australian, and a well-known Melbourne business man and financier-Mr. George D. Mendell.

SIR HERBERT TREE. SOME OF HIS CONFESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 13 June 1914
SIR HERBERT TREE. SOME OF HIS CONFESSIONS. . It is as Jekyll the artist, and not as Hyde the bloated capitalist, that I break my bread. In my time I have had immortal longings to dally with the muse in the primrose paths of literature. But I must confess that for the most part my literary efforts have passed into the plays with which I have bsen connected. This, you will say, may account for the frequency of my failures. But my literary ambitions have been, for the most part, abortive. There are two signs of advancing age-one is when people say to you, "How young you are looking;" the other is when publishers write to suggest that you should write your autobiography. I confess I have al ways detested the aelf-consciousness of the autobiographical attitude-an& I have hitherto resisted the blandish ments of the publishers. My daughter wrote to me a piece of sage advice on this subject. Father, father, do wi'ite a book. It would be wonderful. Write it all about other people. Th...
A LONG BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 13 June 1914
'A LONG BREATH. 'A simple way to get warm after .exposure to cold is to take a long breath with the mouth firmly shut. Kepeat this several times, until you begin to feel the heat returning. It requires a very short time to do this. The long breath quickens the pulse, and thus causes the blood to circulate faster. The blood flows into all parts of the veins and arter ies, and gives out a great deal of heat. It is stated that this method of deep breathing prevents colds and .a great many other ailments if be gun in time. "Come back for something you've forgotten, as usual ?" said the bro ther. "No," replied his sister sweetly, "I've come back for somettoag I've remgnbered 1"
