A FATHER'S SURPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 30 September 1921

A IATHKWS URPRIse. A boy wau once made the happy ower of a pocket knife. When a has a knife it must cut, and this knifr kept up its share of ohips, But the boy had a head as well as a knife. With the strong steel blade he was ever fash ioning something for a purpose. Hio never made the shavings fly merely too make the stick smaller or time less. While he was carving the wood he was carrying out an idea. And when you see a boy do this, look out for a big" man in a few years. One day this boy presented his lather with a model of a machine which had come from under his pocket knife. Tile father glanced at it for a momnent. He was not able to take in the design, and he waited for no explanation. iHe saw at once the whittling had been immense, and time had been wafted by the boy. Ttis en raged him as he was a severely nracti cal man, and could see no use in such trifling employment. ie snatched the pretty machine from the boy's hand and threw it upon the ground, stamp ing it to pieces.

PAINTING THE CHILD'S FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 30 September 1921

PAINTING THE OHILD'S FUTURE. We elftn wonder if it ia only in re trospect that childhood is the golden age for the average child passes throtgh his early years a.s if in a dis agree-ble stage of development, whicr must be patiently endured, rather than a happy time full of sunshine and es peci? priviltes. Parents sometimes -seem unconscously to foster discontent in their children with their childhood by painting the future too brightly. and failing to lay stress upon the joys which are theirs al~.e. The conse quent habit of anticination into which they fall is not always dropped later in. life, and the peaceful philosophy of finding the day's hapiness sutficient is therefore hard to cultivate. If, instead of saying. "You may not do that now; wait until you are a man,. we would say. "You may do something elcs now -bile you are young; Inter? you cannot do it," we would give chil dren a certain valued sense of nrerc gative and take sway much of the envy which they feel towards adults. ...

KOME VARIETIES OF HEALTH. Everyone has observed (says Claud ius Clear in the "British Weekly') the amazing way in which invalids survive and strong men go down. I took up this evening the first volume of Sydney Dobell's life, and read again the pathetic story of his early married life. His wife, always delicate, became a. complete invalid. Many pages detail the tears and hopes of her anxious hus band. As it turned out. Sydney DobelL died at fifty, and his wife survived hint for many years. I knew even a lady so delicate that every time one parted from her it seemed like a final leave-taking. hbut. so far as I know, she is alive to-day. On the other hand, I call to mind the two strongest and healthiest men I have ever known. One of them was a. novelist, the other a college diu. Neither of them ever knew wlht ilhle, was till they were close upon the end The novelist over-exerted himself transgressed every law of health, aiid was struck down by a myslerioue dis ease, to which he succum...
