HARRY LAUDER. Sydney, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 1 April 1914
HARRY LAUDER. Sydney, Monday. Harry Lauder arrived to-day. The comedian, who wore his kilt, the M'Leod plaid, and smoked a meerschaum pipe of unusual pro portions, greeted his Scottish friends on the wharf with a beam ing smile as the Sonoma drew to the berth. He was practically mobbed when he landed, and the scene as he drove through the streets to the Hotel Australia was most exciting. Thousands throng ed the streets, and in Martin-place people clambered on to the motor car and refused to be driven off. The crowd outside the Hotel Aus tralia held up the traffic, and there was tremendous cheering as Mr. Lauder alighted and entered the hotel. Scores waited in the street for hours in the hope of catching another glimpse of the "star." The pipe band of the Highland Society played him up from the wharf, and entertained him with bagpipe music for the rest of the morning. "In 110 place I have been," said Mr. Lauder, "have I had such a reception. I never thought I could 1 have a better on...

SERIOUS MOTOR SMASH. CAR COLLIDES WITH CHINAMAN'S ' CART. FIVE OCCUPANTS INJURED. A serious accident occurred at Warrnambool on Saturday evening' at 7.25 o'clock, when a shooting party, who were returning home from Kirkstall in Mr. Geo. lack's Daimler motor car, came to grief owing to the car colliding with a Chinaman's cart. Mr. Geo. Lock was driving the car, and the other occupants of the vehicle were Messrs. Geo. Robin son, T. Baird, J. O'Malley, and V. Flett. The accident occurred at the commencement of .the Raglan Parade hill. Mr. Lock's car' had just, passed another car coming from Warr nambooi; bnt close be hind this car was a Chinaman's vegetable cart, also travelling in the direction froni Warrnambool, and carrying no lights. No doubt the glare of the lights of the ap proaching car' would prevent Mr. Lock seeing the' cart, which, as soon as the car had passed it moved out again towards the middle of the road. Almost immediately after Mr. Lock had got past the. other motor,-...

CHEAP SILK SWINDLE. PRODUCTIVE ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 1 April 1914
PRODUCTIVE ADVERTISING, Bdwin Percy Liddle, who had been convicted on a charge of ob taining money by means of false pretences, was called up for sen tence at Sydney on Monday. Evi dence was given at the trial to the effect that Liddle, by representing in an advertisement published throughout tne Commonwealth, with the exception of New South Wales, that he would sell ten yards of silk for 2s 6d, obtained a large number of postal notes, money orders, and stamps, but it was maintained that he did not intend to carry out his part of the agree ment. Mr. Teece, who appeared for Liddle, asked that he be dealt with as a first offender, but Judge Murray said that he could not take that course, .for it would bring the administration of criminal law into contempt. He said that Liddle had carried out an ingenious, elab orate, and to a great extent, suc cessful swindle, and should be dealt with accordingly. Liddle was sentenced to three years' penal servitude. Liddle opened an advertising I cam...

BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 1 April 1914
BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. As soon mi a Lapp baby is born, a reindeer is presented to him. Tins reindeer is literally bis s'art in life, ;'or not only that deer, but all its young —and as they grow up, all their young deer—belong to the child. When he is of age, he has quite a herd of his own. This custom is of much greater use to him than if every aunt, uncle and cousin be had in the world pre sented him with the heaviest silver spoon they could find. Variations of temperature in the ocean do not exist at a greater depth ibau 600 feet. Below that the tem perature never varies.

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 1 April 1914
"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1. Pubushkd Wednesday and Saturday The Interstate Commission bas had 1 a new proposal put before it in the j shape of a bounty on the production of crude oil from shale in New, South Wales. .; It appears that a company was formed a few years ago, . with a capital of ,£1,250,000, and a mana ger, whose remuneration was ,£5,000 a year, and 5 per cent, on all money he spent for the Com pany. He of course spent all it had and about a quarter of a million besides. As one of the witnesses stated, "they went the pace;" and of course failed. There is now a proposal to write off a lot of the original capital, get in some fresh money and have another try. The request made to the Commission was at first that the public should give them two pence per gallon- on all the crude oil they produced from shale, and they expected to produce 4,000,00.0 gallons a year. Thus they wished everyone in Australia to be com pelled to contribute to a sum of over £33,000 .'per --ann...

"Expurgated,- replied the other. J "One of those vacuum sandwiches for ■ which your establishment is justly celebrated." "I haven't any kind but those under that pilass cover." "Thai's all right. That's the par ticular viirii'ty I want.*" He helped himself to one of them, and lifted off the upper lid. "That is v. bat I call a sandwich nil,' he observed, eyeing it critically, yet approvingly. "There is nothing super- j rogatory about it. It's one of those J hiatus sandwiches. It's a sandwich j with an alibi,'* he added, replacing the lid and studying the outer surface of it intently.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 April 1914
FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure Id fife," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the sufferer can be held responsible. If a man be lacking in natural judgment and ability then he must g > under, al- : though even here honesty, persever j ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro lific 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 drink, 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."
