GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 May 1914
GOOD MANNERS. Have von over heard any one say, "Uli, if I were rich I'd liaYo tilings nice then"? Did you ever notice whe ther she had tilings as nice without being rich as she could? Just as the rich and poor use the same standard of spelling, as free to one as to the other, so they can both use the same standard of good breeding if they choose. Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write i for I, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with his knife, keeps his hat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that custom has decidcd ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an air-cushion though there may be notHing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder fully." That one is poor is no ex cuse for rough ways; neither does it excuse a slack table service. It is the little things lhat make living delight ful. Mrs. Whitney is no...

THE PLOUGHMAN'S JARGON. With nil our growing IOTO of oountry. of rural scones and pursuits', with all our laiow'vlgo of liorses and cattle, and our assiduity in compiling now vocabu laries and glossaries, it is surprising t-hau wo still lack a guido to tho moan ing of tho continuous oonvorsation which animates tho true-born country man in conjunction with, his team. It might reasonably bo sfipposod that the plodding ploughman, tho jocund toam stor, and grinning yokel could enlighten ?js concerning tho jargon and jumolo of sounds tlioy uso when managing "ossos" i in the field, farmyard and staolo. Yet oven a Yorkshireman of this oliwj, 1 though gonerally admitted to bo an ex I pen, in equino education, is unable to 1 explain anything for vory shynoss.

General Hamilton's Report [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 June 1914
General Hamilton's Report GENERAL HAMILTON'S report on the military forces of the Com monwealth shows that in tho matter of defence there is much for the Liberal Ministry' to do. When in offico the Labor Party displayed a praiseworthy desire to lay tho foundations of an army and of a navy, which should make Australia safe from foreign at tack. 13nt, so much said, it has j boon pointed out that much of General Hamilton's report is a | condemnation of past business methods, a plea for administra tion in the future. The General insists that , Australia's army must have a business branch under a comptroller with a quarter-master-general as second in command. It would bo amongst tho duties of this branch to watch expenditure closely, to see thai Commonwealth thousands go where need is greatest, not neces sarily where demand is most urgent. It would liavo to de centralise, to establish a pension scheme, to bring about closer co operation with tho Defence and other Departments. It is idle,...
