A MEOLEV, OR MISTAKES MANY MAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 12 January 1900

A MEOLEV, OR MISTAKES MANY MAKE. Following ie the continuation of the interesting lecture which waa. delivered on the above by the Rev. J. Howell Price, of Richmond, at a recent meeting of the Windsor Literary and Debating Society : MISTAKE NO. 2. Another and a more mischievous mis take is that MUSCLE AND NOT MENTAL MioHT is the essential thing with which to achieve BucceBs in the world. Here the lecturer pointed out how; young men in particular preferred a bat, or a bali to a book-" a strike " to " a study." Sport is almost deified. Its devotees number millions, It is some times questionable whether employers get a "fair deal." "A sound body" io a magnificent thing ; but it is more mag nificent still when coupled with a " sound mind." The dread of physical "hard graft " is only exceeded by the fear of " the grind " necessary to attain a certain standard of mental excellence. Too many have ' urnt only too well how to "play at - and work at play." lt is said thc age demands a "muscul...

CHAPTER V. When Mr. Handfield reached the bank, he saw at once by the ¡ pale, awestricken face of the servant who opened the door that some thing dreadful had happened. ' "Where is Mr.fairburn?

A New Boat. We paid a visit during tue we to Mr. T. C. Chaseling's new boat which is being built at Wiseman's Ferry, and was some what surpris' to find that the craft was so near completion. Some six months ago Messrs. Grant and Wicks, the well known boat builders, of Sydney came to the Ferry to build the mould and model of the boat, which was then left in the hands of Mr Nathan Greentree and others.

CORRESPONDENCE ?-T {We do not necessarily identify our selves with the opinions expressed by our correspondente.] 1 VOLUNTEER GREED.

If such be true, the object snivellers deserve to be drammed out of the regiment as an example to all greedy cusses of that ilk. What a commentary upon the boasted generosity of native-born Australians!

Mrs. Richardson of Liverpool, and some friends, are at present on a visit to our local postmaster. The season so far has been very fair, and farmers have been more' fortunate than previously, as moat of their produce has been consigned to market, and not wasted as in former years. * Our little village was quite astir laBtweek, when several pleasure boats, from Sydney, put in an ap pearance, this being an unusual oc currence of late months, but the custom seems to be coming into vogue again.
