SERMON BY REV. FATHER MALONE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
SERMON BY REV. FATHER MALONE. Rev. Father Malone prefaced his address by stating that he de sired to congratulate the church upon the magnificent work it had accomplished. It was a little over two years since he had the plea sure of coming to Leongatha on a previous visit. Since then the new church had been built; and now they had crowned their work by getting into their midst representatives of the great teach ing order of the Sisters ~of St. : Joseph. The new church was the finest he had seen in the country districts of the whole Arch-diocese of Melbourne. Mr H. McCartin had donated the land upon which the convent stands — and will stand when he has passed away. He might have put the money into a more profitable investment from a worldly point of view ; but he (Father Malone) did not know of a more profitable investment than prayer and self-sacrifice. He liad been asked to say a few ' words in reference to the opening of the new convent; and though lie had a very busy mission, he ...
The Federal Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
The Federal Campaign. THE policy speech which Mr Fisher delivered on Monday shows how grave are the dangers which threaten the Common wealth. If Labor has its foolish way, the historian of the future will write of Australia as a nation killed with kindness. Whether this Labor member is an adven turer skilfully playing on the amiable weaknesses of human nature—thatoneadreamersharing the weaknesses to which he ap peals, we need not too curiously inquire. Whatever their motives, Mr Fisher and his Parliamentary followers are reviving the old Roman method of placating the many with doles. First the old age pension, next the invalid grant, then the baby bonus, and now allowances for widows with children dependent on them. Of these things every one is good, and is absolutely necessary to the building up of a great nation under modern conditions, but they should come as the legiti mate result of a great scheme of national insurance, not as doles from the State. In Great Britain the big co-o...

The event was a decided success in spite of the un fortunate weather conditions that the 'committee had to contend with. Prizes were offered for" the best lady and gent costume and keen competition ensued for such honors as will be seen by the following characters. At about 8.30 dancing was commenced and was kept, in full swing until about 11.30, when the happy crowd indulged in evening refreshments which were served round. After dispensing with the varied assortment of delicacies that were gratuitously supplied by the ladies, a ballot was then, taken by every person present in deciding who should get the prizes. The resu...
HELPFUL WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
HELPFUL WIVES. It is not always the wife who stands behind her husband's counter, or shares his office or labors with him, shoulder to shoulder, who is the great est help to a man. Many women, dis tinctly feminine, and to all appearan ces hopelessly unbusinesslike, are first aids to the busy husband, and they seldom or never enter the shops, offices, or factories over which their husbands rule. A woman blessed with the faculty of saying or doing the right thing at the right minute is bound to be a help to her husband. The woman who can make herself indispensable c.j V. :r hus band as his social mentor an 3 co entertainer has many pleasures which the less tactful sisters miss. Everyone recognises as a bore the woman who is for ever quoting the ^ clever sayings, of her husband, and_ dwelling at length- upon his good points, his success in business, etc.; but the wife who knows when to drop a hint "that counts is the real help-.' meet.

She is broad minded enough to take in all points of view, and firm enough to sum them up impartially.
SOME THINGS TO AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
SOME THINGS TO AVOID. There are a few things that a wom nn should never be guilty of doing. Sho should never laugh when slight ing remarks are made about one of her own sex.

BACHELORS' EXCUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
BACHELORS' EXCUSES. At a wedding breakfast the bache lors were called upon to give their . reasons for remaining so. The following were among them— "I am like the frog in the fable, who, though he loved the water, would not jump into the well because he could not jump out again." "I am too selfish, and honest enough to admit it." "I prefer, 011 it>e. one hand, liberty, refreshing sleep, the opera, midnight suppers, quiet seclusion, dreams, ci gars, a bank account, and club to—on the other hand—disturbed rest, cold meat, baby linen, soothing syrup, rock ing-horses, bread pudding, and empty pockets." "I have a twin brother, and we have never had a secret from one another. He is married." A promising young merchant re cently presented his better half with a handsome piano lamp. He was much flattered when she told him to give it his name, until he asked her reasons for so peculiar a proceeding. "Well," said she, "you l;now, dear, it has a good deal of brass about it; it is handsome t...

THE RIVER NILE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
THE RIVER NILE. The Nile valley is the great bird road running north and south.. The heron fishes in every shallow. The ibis haunts the banks. The pelicans stand in rows at the time of the in undation. Eagles, kites and ospreys are common. On every sandjbank, black or black and white vultures hop about and flap .their outspread, drag gled wings. A kingfisher, more com mon and more soberly clad than ours, performs wonderful feats of diving within a few paces of the onlooker. The little sand snipe and the true snipe prevail, and the quail visits the country in immense numbers in the spring. Owls haunt the palm-, trees and ruins, and pigeons, which are reared in every village for the sake of the manure, are probably more numerous than in any other country in the world. It is delightful to note the tameness of the birds of Egypt. They enter rooms and houses through windows or crevices left for' ventilation, and once inside, hop fear lessly about the floor, picking up stray crumbs. I hav...
THE HAND OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
THE HAND OF FATE. [ By MRS. CORNOCK. When the prison gates clanged be hind him, and Steven Grondon step ped out a free man into the April sunshine, his lirst coherent thought was one that ill accorded with the calm beauty of the world, waking to her livery of spring. A warder con ducted him to the station, bade him a friendly farewell with a few kindly words, and left him. He was a free man. He hardly realised it as the train steamed away from the little station, and he left frowning Port land, with its bleak rocks, its quar ries, its outlook over illimitable sea, behind him. The one all-pervading thought in his mind was one of re venge. Wasn't it natural? Was he to be blamed for wishing with all his heart'and strength that the man who had deliberately left him to suffer for live hideous years in a convict pri son, for a crime he had never com mitted, "should be confronted with his own villainy and brought to book? He was not even sure of the man, yet he had suspicions. Who else cou...
THE HOME CIRCLE. "THE AWKWARD AGE." [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
THE HOME CIRCLE. "THE AWKWARD AGE." The "awkward age" is a phrase commonly used to describe that time of life when young j. _jple are begin ning to "grow up." This stage of thoir existence is a veritable "awk ward aye" also tor parents. Future happiness: or misery often trembles in the balance during these critical years, in the young ones character iu developing, and' some trait of tem per or waywardness may be asserting itself. ■ Song, and daughters are apt to bo vQry disappointing at this period, for parents often desire too much. They are irritated and cannot hide chagrin when the brain of a boy does not come up to expectation, or good looks in a girl are not realised. So 8 gap is caused, and much danger lies in the rift widening to such a degree that it can never be drawn together again. The only hope depends upon the wisdom of the mother who, after carefully advising and paving the way to a right decision, knows how much to leave to the honor and good sense of her children. Th...
Grasping the Moral. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
Grasping the Moral. The street-corner orator had gather ed " around him a group of urchins. Why they listened so attentively he didn't understand; nor probably did they know themselves. Simply noth ing doing. But the orator took full advantage of his opportunity, and delivered an improving lecture on the value of kindness to dumb animals. At the end. he sought for some il lustration to point the moral and adorn the tale. It was there at hand. Across the way walked a lady, leading two little dogs in leash. The one was black and the other white. "Now," exclaimed the tub-thumper, "after what I have said, supposing those twp dear little dogs were to start fighting, what would be the first thing you would do" No answer came at first; but out; little arab turned to look at the dogs critically and thoughtfully. "Well, guv'nor," he answered, at last, "I fink I'd 'ave tuppence on the little black 'unl" To liave faults anil not strive to correct them is to add to our faults. A bag of salt sta...
II [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
II. "I'm sorry, Pamela—will you for give me? I was a cad to speak such words to yotf." '• It was the next day, and Pamela, ■.vas taking some cakes out o£.tlie oven, jilted a hot, flushed face and smiled into her lover's face. The smile told James Dawson 'all ,;e wanted to know, and, moving im petuously forward, he clasped Pamela in his arms and gave her a fervent kiss. "Mind the cakes,'" she laughed; then, as he released her,' "now you siust come and see Tina." With light, deft touch, she first re moved the cakes on to a wooden board, then, beckoning to Jim, led the way into a long, low parlor. The man followed indifferently. The ..ist time he had seen Tina she had teen in the pig-tail stage; and, -hav .lig ragarded her then as a tiresome necessity to be endured, he did not expect to be particularly thrilled by .lie sight of her now. But when he .•eaclied the threshold he paused in wondering admiration; for lying in a graceful attitude on a couch near the .vindow was a young girl wi...
PAMELA'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 17 July 1914
PAMELA'S CHOICE. By FRANCES BROWN. "We've been engaged for five years, Pamela, and I'm getting tired o£ -wait ing. When are you going to marry me?" - James Dawson, a stalwart young farmer of thirty, looked frowningly at the girl who stood bare-headed be fore him in the waning light of a chill November afternoon. He spoke with irritable impatience, and the girl sigh ed as she glanced back over her shoul der at a low-lying farmstead that nest led in the valley some hundred yards away. A few minutes since she had heard her lover riding by, and had run to the gate to give him a passing greeting. "In a year's time, Jim," she said, and there v/as a note of appeal in her sweet, low tones as she laid a well shaped but worlc-coarsened hand on his arm. "I can't leave my mother until Tina is able to take my place, and—and a year will soon pass, dear." "A year!" she echoed scornfully. "You talk of years as lightly as of weeks! Has it ever occurred to you that Roodlands has been waiting for its ...

SUN CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. A Wonderful Discovery. Doctors and scientists all over the world have for a long time recognised that the sun possesses wonderful healing powers, ami of late many of_ them have been making a close study* o£ its efficacy in regard to certain diseases. The result has been some astonishing discoveries, the most im portant of which, perhaps, is that the healing virtues of sunlight have been found particularly helpful for tuber culosis of the bones "and joints, and an excellent "remedy for cases of acute muscular rheumatism. The general method adopted when pursuing this treatment is to expose the naked uody to solar rays, the treatment being termed heliotherapy. Dr. Armand ,DelilIe, a famous French physician, gives it as his emphatic opinion that all forms of exterpal tuberculosis are amenable to this treatment, "with results," to" quote his own words, "at times so stupe fying that they seem to touch on mir acle."
