Faith in Oneself. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

Faith in Oneself. In an emergency, as in danger, a man can often' perform feats of great strength which he could' not even approximate in cold blood. Arousing a man multiplies his power tremendously. Think of what delicate men and women, even invalids, have accomplished when dominated by some supreme occasion or a mighty passion. The imperious 'must ' give added strength and 1111 faith, and unwavering self-confidence, braces the entire man physically, mentally, morally. It raises him to the highest power, and makes' him do with ease what would be impossible without this wonderful stimulus. An overmastering faith in oneself often enables comparatively ignorant ?men and women to do marvellous things — feats which sensitive, timid, doubting people, of far greater ability and much finer texture and nobler qualities shrink from attempting. Your achieve ment will never rise higher than your self- faith. It would be as reasonable for Napolean to have expected to get his army over the Alps ...

To be Happy Though Busy. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

To be Happy Though Busy. A good many people make a busy life an excuse for being tired and disagreeable. They have ever a grumble about ' I can't do this, I am too busy,' and generally make themselves a misery to all around. One is sorry, of course, for the overworked among* us, but these may remember that there is this to be said : As a rule they might lighten their labors ; much of the work of the world is undertaken to please the worker, it grati fies nobody else. The woman, for instance, who slaves at house^cleaiiiug could probably leave something undone, and nobody would be the worse. The woman who works her self to death mending and making for her children chooses to do this to some extent, for it is quite possible that she could give them more lasting clothing, but she prefers to make often, so that the}' may have more, or as many, clothes as anyone else. Of course it is hard on her that she must either overwork herself or fall .short of her neigh bors; still, though she is u...

To a Friend [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

T7- ^ JFiniendl There was something in you that I felt akin — i I think it was love of the right and true — | And I longed your love and praise to win, | Becaii.se it was worthy to gain, I knew. m It was not that I thought you without a flaw — || And my faults were plain for the world to view — | But the world judged only by what it saw, And much that was hidden seemed plain to you. Alas ! I was weak where you thought me strong, , And you gave me credit where none was due ; j It was just by this I was helped along, I For I wanted to be what I seemed to you. J I love you because you have thought the best, 1 And seen at the worst how the good peeped, 1 through, . . c ? I And it's this that singles you out from the rest | And makes you one of the chosen few. I A prisoner in Greece who is sentenced to death m has to wait two years before the sentence is car- II ried out.

The Transforming of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

The Transforming of Australia. The United Kingdom imported in 1906 twenty-seven million odd pounds' worth of wool, and ;£l 1,514, 733 came from Australia, ,£6,959,836 from New Zealand, and the rest from all the other countries of the world put together. And wool comes from . all the States — wool and wheat and wine and frozen mutton, which, like the butter, .Englishmen mostly eat as best bouthdown ; and there is timber, and there is fruit, and there are gold and silver and tin. All this from the land that our fathers called barren, of which troubled Governor Phillip wrote a little over a hundred years ago — ' All my sheep are dead/ Sheep do not thrive in this country.' But he was an exile, he and the man who came with him, ever turning their eyes to the north, longing for the days to pass . when they might go home. And these new men are a nation. It is no longer in the making ; it is made. They have not the longing for the land of the north tugging at their heart-strings; they would...

The Silence. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

The Silence. Though small, the tiny attic was artistic and cosy. The young artist, Eric Mi liter n, who rented the misshapen, glorified cup board called it a studio ; the landlord when the place was vacant, termed it ' a small room on the top story,' and that, to keep within the bounds of truth, was quite the most favourable description which could be applied. But the room is of minor importance, it is the people who were there which are of interest. A numbing, December wind howled through the house, and the zinc chimne}^, whose proximity to the ' studio ' was so near, rattled unmusical^. Although the soot and fragments of mortar which tumb led down the chimney helped to deaden an already smitten lire, there remained a suffi cient light to make clear the expressions on the features of Eric Mi liter n and his girl companion ; their faces plainly indi cated the existence of grief and unhappi ness. To the most unobservant persons, that something extremely disturbing had hap pened, or w...
