WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
WOMEN AND WORK. All women who have not home du&lt; ties to keep them occupied ought to I have some outside interests. The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to wards humanity are the busy women —those frho work for their living or for charity or are occupied with the best duties of all—motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business Voman with a calling, no matter how humble it is, has not the time for the despicable pettiness that goes >to make life a burden to all con cerned. The woman who works is inevitably ;a woman who is broad in her views. Her opinions are not riveted to any ■one spot. Her point of view is mov able. Her experience in the business mart gives her sympathy for other wo- i men workers. She has learned to ac cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have made Bomethiog out of life.
THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet we should be tempted to call it, not an Keroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, ; the Mechanical Age. It ia the Age o 1 Machinery, in every outward and uni versal sense of that word; the age which, with its whole individual might, forwards, teaches, and practises the great art of adapting means to ends. Nothing is now done directly, or by hand; all Is by rule and calculated con- ; tcivjtnce. For the simplest operation, i some helps and accompaniments, some | cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu- \ tion are all discredited, and thrown ] aside. On every hand, the living arti- i san is driven from his workshop to i make room for a speedier, inanimate j one.
TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. Boys demand especial care at the j smother's hands. They should be j trained to show consideration to oth- ; ers, general good breeding. A lad wbo is awkward, grumpy ana 111 at ease iu the presenc e of visitors Is a painful sight, especially when— : as frequently happens—his sisters ; point a contrast by ease and refine- ; mint of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not be their humble slave. Nor should tliey be allowed to tyrannise over their I sisters. That is the way to mak« them selfish, arrogant and generally Insufferable.

LATE DR. SWEETNAM. REFERENCES BY COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
LATE DR. SWEETNAM. references by councillors. Sincere expressions of regret were manifest at the monthly meet ing of the' Mortlake Shire Council ou Friday regarding the late Dr. Sweetnam, who had been health officer to the Shire for 37 years, and a record of his faithful services as an officer and citizen was ordered to be inserted in the minutes. Cr. Montgomery said since their last regular meeting the Shire of Mortlake had suffered a great loss by the death of their health officer (Dr. Sweetnam). He had been associated with the council during his lengthy residence in Mortlake, and had been a faithful and pains taking officer in every department of this work. To him (the speaker) Dr. Sweetnam was a personal loss, and was one of the deepest that he had sustained. He had been asso ciated with Dr. Sweetnam from the day of his arrival in Mortlake till the sad end came, and was mixed up with him in private and public matters of every form. Therefore, he felt Dr. Sweetnam's loss very kee...
"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
"The Dispatch" Published Wednesday and Saturday Australia's outstanding need to day is more people. Under exist ing systems of taxation the man who is assisting to solve the popu lation problem is penalised. It is no use shutting our eyes to the fact that the social problem arising from the falling birth-rate is large ly a financial one ; people are apprehensive regarding the future. A system of taxation that falls heavily on the family man tends to accentuate that feeling. For that reason, and also because it is unjust to pile burdens on the shoulders of the taxpayer who" has a family to support, other countries have made concessions, when framing revenue producing schemes, to men who have others dependent upon them. That :is what Victoria should do in connection with the Income Tax.r Three of the other States have been sufficiently wide-awake to recognise the wisdom of such a course. Under the New South Wales Act of 1911 it is provided that there shall be a reduction of .£50 for e...

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
I i A DOCTOR-'S VIEWS ON TEA AND I COFFEE. I Writing on the subject of tea, coffeo I and cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says: — Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac ; tic.illy the s:ime stimulating active ! principle. The difference between tea and coffee is a difference of aroma, The difference between cocoa and the other two is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa is a positive food, which the others are not. Always, I think, we may conclude that the East India teas are rather more "excitant" than the China teas. In all teas the thein (ac I tive principle) is combined with tan ; tiic acid; and our object should be to drink the one (thein) without the oth er (tannin, as it is loosely ca.Iled>. Therefore, tea should not infuse too long—what is called "stand." Recol lect that very hard water wfll not , make very good tea without, prepara : tion. Milk and sugar make a food J of it. And tea made with boiling • water and infused for five minutes is , % most excellent pick-me-up in condi tlon...

In the Refreshment Room. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
*8HT in the Refreshment Room. -1 A sallow individual in a faded brown overcoat sat down on a stool at a railway restuurant the other morning; and said to the proprietor: "Give me a cup of coffee and one of your expurgated sandwiches." "What kind?" Bald the proprietor. "Expurgated,' replied the other. "One of those vacuum sandwiches for which your establishment is Justly celebrated." "1 haven't any kind bat thoae wrier that glass cover." "That's all right. That's the par* tlcular variety I want.** Ho helped himself to one of them, and lifted off the upper lid. "That is what I call a Bandwlch nlV' he observed, eyeing It critically, yet approvingly. "There is nothing super rogatory about it. It's one of those hiatus sandwiches. It's a sandwich with an alibi," he added, replacing the lid and studying the outer surface of It intently. "It'e an absent sandwich. It's a sandwich that has failed to ar- ; rive.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 8 April 1914
FAILURES DUE TO LAZINE38. "The two main causes of failure in Lite," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques- j tion, are incompetence and laziness, i "The first is, of course, not, as a role, a matter in which the Bufferer can be held responsible. If a man be lacking in natural judgment and ability then he must g > under, al though even hore honesry, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far tie most pro lific parent o 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 hie normal character."
