Adams, will be celebrated on 14th April.

MORTLAKE WATER SUPPLY. THE SCHEME EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914

IORTLAKE WATER SUPPLY. mlm THE SCHEME EXPLAINED. Not many days ago an .eminent medical man -referring, to water supply for one of the provincial . towns of the state told the Minister for Water Supply that "no town could be complete from a health point of view uutil it was served by a.n adequate water supply.' And that vpry same statement applies to the'township of Mortlake. The present dry season has emphasised more and more to householders the imperative necessity for the retic ulation of the town of Mortlake. To secure a permanent and efficient supply many towns that undertake such a proposition have huge difficulties to encouuter, such as supply and .. long distances over which the water has to be carried before it reaches the inhabitants. Th e town of Mortlake has no real difficulties. Abundant water is obtainable in the very heart of the town, whilst from the very first foot of piping that leaves the pumping station the people are served. Now, where is it possible in any town ...

HINTS ON HABITS. " Got out of the habit of being poor. Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. Being poor is an extremely hard habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven. That's why all the brightest and beet men are waiting. They don't want to throw themselves away on this side of Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The use of manners is to enable you to do ex actly what you want without giving offence. The worst of all faults is to have none. Beauty la only skin deep. And the fteart is very far from the skin. If, by any chance, you want to be really good, get out of the habit of being beautiful. Try to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve it. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from ae. Don't get into...
