HE HAD VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

H. M LEAD VIEW9. An English traveller stood looking 4 the glorioa of Yosemite for the first time. Hle had journeoyed three thou iand miloa to see that wonderful valley. Before him, in solemn grandeur, rose the Cathedral Rtock, the Three Brothers, and the Sentinel Dome, The Bridal Veil Falls, dissolving in a eathery mist as the waters descended be tromondous precipice, lit up with varied tinto the sombre majesty of the leone; while El Capitan, mighty, over. powering, unapproachable, seemed to rown sternly over all. The traveller became conscious that no was not alone. At his side, api parontly lost in wonder, stood a stran? gor, looking at the marvellous scene. It[o addressed him: "Is nob this stupeni dousP?" "Do you think," continued the traveller, "that this terrifio gorge was caused by some Titanio upheaval from below P Or is it the result of glacial action? What are your views, if any, as to-" ' "My views," blandly interposed the strangor, opening a bag he carried in his hand con...

CORRESPONDENCE. NOISY CHILDREN AT SPORTS. (To the Editor of the MERCURY.) [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

OORRESPONDENOtE, NOISY OHILDREN AT SPORTS, (To the Editor of the M6tucuit,) Su,=--Will you allow me the medium of your oailumne to draw attention to an unpleasant feature in connection with the St?. Iatrick'a D y fertival, I refer to the intolerable noise of the children on the grand atand, A great number of peoplo, many of thlm elderly, patronised the grand stand, bu thd ir enjoyment of an ideal day's outing and an excillent pro;ramne was marred by the children who ran noisily over the aseatsu, leaving foot. prints and fruit Fkin,, rrgardleda of their comfort or their clothu. Such unwarranted liberty detracts fromi the pleasure, and, to my mind, the dignity of the gathering, Surely the comt mittee, if they realitod thin annoy. itnce, could prev'ent it by appointing a few vigilant utewards until the events are over, to compel the child. ren either to remain quiet or to leave the ?stand, otherwise mtnmy people will esohew the gathering altogether,..-..

LABOR'S FIRST MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

LABOR'8 FIRST MOVE. I [BY (, I To end the uneatisfactory state into which the condition of Australian politics has drifted, and to seek by an appeal to the people to find where lies the wish of the Australian elector, Labor has taken the first move, In the Melbourne Town Hall on Monday night, Mr. Fisher and his staff fired the first shot of what ti expected to be the most strenuous campaign of Australian politicos, These contests, which threaten to become frrquent, are always spoken of as of the greatest nmagnitude, and calculated to call forth the most stronuous efforts of the forces on either side, Expeotancy is main tained at its highest pitch, and the fighting courage of the forces is stimulated by the explosion of the heaviest artillery which the armiens of Liberalism and Labor possess. One of Melbourne's notabilitirs during the past half century, was a hurly bluff seller of horses at Kirk's Bas ?ar. lie Swas always easuring his audiences that the horse he was now submitting fo...

FROM A WOMAN'S NOTE-BOOK [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

FROM A WOMAN'S NOTE.BOOK A woman looks into her mirror wit) ler own eyes. It reflects her as sh( sies herself. But the eyes of mci reliect her as she is. To tell a plain woman that beaut: counts for nothing is like explainin to a starving family that the lives c the rich are wretched. She who I beautiful within, is never altogethe ugly without. It may be easier for a plain woma, to be good than for a pretty one; bu you will not find the plain woman wh will believe it, If a woman proves that she ha! brains in her head, people will soot forget to look for a dimple in he oheek, Some people talk as though bralm llways were given as compensatiot for an ugly face. Wrinkles in the face are not neces iarily a sign of deep thoughts in th' head. Wrinkles are often only frown, perpetuated. Much beauty is not even skin deel Cheerfulness, cheerfulness, cheerfu' ness, is the only true and permanen beautifieor in the world,

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

STRAIN ON TiHE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Roear-Admiral A. T. Mahan, in "The Daily Mail.") Tho naval position of Great Britain is a composito of two distinct factors. These are the general international situation, In so far as Great Britain may be therein involved by her inter eosts or her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan get's. These two things represent thi lofentsive and offenslvo elements of a military situation. At the present moment the nmort security of the British Islands is con coived to be so far imperilled that it has prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around the islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it, has been the wlthdrawal-the drawing back-of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definito headquarters. Students of military hist...

DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBERCULOSIS [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

DARING OPERATION KNIFE FOR TUBEIRCULOSIS T'remendous strides have been made of late years in the treatment of tuber culosis (says "'Lloyd's Weekly News" of January 18), and one of the greatest appears to have been due to the ?tr geons at Guy's Hospital, who, greatly daring, are declared to have made a remarkable advance in the treatment of certain forms of disease. Recent researches have led doctors to suppose that many conditions of chronic ill-health, such as nervous debility, rheumatism, and other disorders, are duo to poisoning set up by unhealthy conditions of the large intestine, and it has even been suggested that the lowering of vitality resulting from such poisoning is favorable to the develop ment of cancer and tuberculosis. It was felt that if the large intestine could be safely removed the result would be a tendency to healthy longe vity in the individual; but surgeons were deterred from the obvious op)era tion by a knowledge of other functions l)erformed by this part of...

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR TROUBLES [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

MEN AND DYNAMITE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR 'TROUBLES (By Stephen Black, in "'The Daily Mall.") Thire present trouble on thie Rand, from where is drawn practically the whole of the world's regular gold supply, originated largely In the tragic deeds of last July 4 and 5. It may vaguely have conme from still farther back, but shape and definition emerged six months ago. South Africa, the graveyard of states men's reputations, has problems which no other country on earth possesses; and the wisest men have failed thie and again to cope with them. Certainly the Botha Government prior to last July understood little of the Rand's real soul; the soul of a wild, reck less race of men jumbled together among scholars, mining mathemati clans, younger sons, and other remit tance men. Thie same spirits that re belled against the Kruger Government and the children of these men are on the Rand to-day; and the fatality of their affairs is that they are governed as Kruger governed themt-from a town only thi...

WHAT IS A GENTLEMAN? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 21 March 1914

WHAT' IS A G)ENTLMANP A genileoiian is just a gentlenan; no more, no leis; a diamond polished that was first at diamond in the rough A gentlemionian is getlo. A gentleman in itodest, A gtntlemian is courteous. A gentleman is slow to take offence, as being one who never gives it, A getntlemani is slow to surmlise evil, as being one who never thinks it.
