PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 9 April 1914
PATIENCE. "To know how to wait." says 1)D Maistre, "is the secret of success." C)rus Field was tenll years In laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower It the great rope snapn pod in mid-ocean, and when they grap. pled it and brought it to the surface, it sllpped away from them, and0 was gone. Not until Ihe had tried thirty. times was thie tireless patience of the Inventor rewarded. Il life's school one of the hardest lessons Is to learn to walt patiently. It has been said that speech has bcea given to women to conceal their thoughts, bu It t seldonm even con coals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to geot a curate. We know many old maids who have been trying for years. Mlost things we haven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant.

"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 9 April 1914
"BE A WOMAN." "Ue a man" is an injunction which implies that one is endeavoring to nim at achieving all that is beat In manhood. No one would dream of stimulatlng a personl' ambition to loftier Ideals by bidding him "Be a gentleman." Likewise, there should be no onence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, enables it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be marked off as having more of tile good things of this world than the others, but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the 'humblest in the land who is contrli buting something.through her woman liness towards making the commun ity around her richer by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacrli fice, and her love.

Sensa tional headings met the public eye from the boards which set forth the contents of the many newspapers. "The claimant arrested on a charge of murder," ran one.

As a lad of nineteen he quarrelled wit, his father and took a steerage passage to Auts tralia in an old Iron ship called the Hyderabad.
