THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 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 Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It is the Age of 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 dircct.ly, or by haud; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, eome helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown I aside. On every hand, the living arti- i san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate i one. !

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. Boys demand especial care at the mother's hands. They should be trained to show consideration to oth ers, and general good breeding. A lad who is awkward, grumpy ana ill at ease in the presence of visitors Is a painful sight, especially when— as frequently happens—his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine ment of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not be their humble slave. Nor should they be allo*ved to tyrannise over their | sisters. That is the way to make | them selfish, arrogant and generally insufferable.

CABLE NEWS. HOME RULE QUESTIONS. DID LORD ROBERTS THREATEN? HOUSE IN LIGHTER MOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914

DID LORD ROBERTS THREATEN? HOUSE IN LIGHTER MOOD. Questioned in the House of Com mons on Thursday, Mr. M'Kenna, the Home Secretary, who is act ing as leader of the House in the absence of Mr. Asquith, stated that there vvas no evidence that I^ord Roberts, in the course of the con ferences on the Curragh incident, threatened to resign his Field Mar shalship. There was only a brief sitting of the House, and the atmosphere of levity was in striking contrast to that of the previous fortnight, members behaving like schoolboys on breaking up dav. Private members are beginning to assert themselves on the Irish question, and an appeal is promised in the House of Commons for the abolition of party divisions, intro ducing a free vote, unless a settle ment is reached in the meantime.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINE®8. "The two main causes of failure In j!ife," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are Incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as * rule, a matter In which the sufferer can be held responsible. If a man be j lacking in natural judgment and ' ability then he must g> under, al though even here honesty, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro. 3ific parent of failure. It is responsible tor the lack of ambition, and it is '.?j-gely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who ;lrink, 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 his normal character." j

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 April 1914

- ■ rr A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. "Writing on the subject of tea, coffee and cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says: — Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac tically the same 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, whictf 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 thoin (ac tive principle) is combined with tan nic acid; and our object should be to drink the one (thein) without the oth er (tannin, as it is loosely called!. Therefore, tea should uct infuse too long—what is railed !'stand." Fleer,] lect that very hard water will nr.l make very good tea without. prepar.v tion. JMilk and siijrar make a. for.il of -it.
