A COMPLAINT FROM ROSE BUD. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-The residents of Rosebud complain of Rosebud not enjoying the, popularity, as a .entre. of entertainment, that is being en joyed by Dromana and other places. During the session of the last committee, the agitators and those in opposition, who were not on the committee,- said, through the local paper, that it was attribu table to the fact that the committee were too lax in the execution of their duties.' Be that as it may, it cannot be denied that the commit- , tee did wonderful work in clearing off the debt, and improving the hall in the way they did. The old committee were 'swamped' out of power, a.nd the new were elected in their stead; having established themselves safely, they then spread' and announced far and near, both verbally and through the medium of the 'Standard,' the local paper, that they were prepared to sally forth and awaken the district from .' ..-. . eý---IL,.d?m ,nta--there=" fore looked for great improvement (room f...

An Extraordinary Journey. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 16 December 1911
An Extraordinary Journey. The curious effect sometimes pro duced in telegrams by want of punc tuation or the omission of a single small word (says a reader) cannot fail to have struck everyone. ,?I had a female ielative living in the North from whom I had "expecta tions." She had been ailing for some weeks, when one morning came a tele. gram asking my wife to go at once, as she-my aunt-was much worse. She accordingly went. During the evening of the following day I received this disconcerting an nouncement: "Aunt Matilda went to Heaven, at 3.30 returning by 11.50 to-morrow morning."

One Consolation. "When we were poor," remarked the prosperous business man, "we looked forward to the time when we could have a summer cottage in the coun try." "Well?" asked-his friend. - "Well,'when we got rich enough to have one we didn't like going to the same place every summer, because it was monotonous, and we looked for ward to the time when we could have another for variety." "Yes." "We got another, and then we began to long for a winter place, so'that we shouldn't have to spend so much time` in the city." "I see." "Well, we have them all now." "And are you happy?" "I suppose so. At least I' suppose my wife is. She keeps them all shut up and spends most of her time tra velling elsewhere; but she knows she has them."

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 16 December 1911
MORAL REFLECTIONS. Honesty is not a virtue but a sacred duty. The original noise is what counts most folk are only echoes. ,Cultivate not only the cornfields of your mind but the pleasure-grounds also. Life is not long, and too much of it must not be passed in Idle deliber ation as to how it shall be spent. Never ask what you have no right to know; never tell other people what they have no right to know. If a man would escape all responsi bility he must place himself wholly outside of all the relations of life, for life is responsibility. A gloomy day is a challenge to cheerfulness. It is easy to be gloomy when the weather is gloomy. It is hard to be sunny when the sun is not visible. There is only one real .failure in life possible, and that is not to be true to the best one knows. The path of one's life is like the come it is* to try always tolbok on the cheerful side of things. We should meet each morning as from foreign countries, and, spending the day, together, should depart a...

It was a quar ter to ten by the small brass clock on the mantelpiece, and the jeweller, rubbing his hands over the fire, tried in vain to remember what etiquette had to say about starting a meal be fore the arrival of an expected guest "He must be coming by the last train after all, sir," said the house keeper, entering the room and glan. cing at the clock.
