KEEP COOL. T.n every human breast is still the ancient lust for battle. Lying dor mant, only needing a vouch to vibrato it is tue love of fighting. The pre historic man is within as yet. Civilisation stands for naught when we lose grip of ourselves, and tne pri meval instincts take command. Now is the time to keep cool and be patriotic. The true patriot is not loud-voiced—he does something. He is practical, and helps his brother. Australia is not directly involved, and ire Australians can do mucu, .though we will not pull a trigger or sight a cannon. The man with stolid character is required to-day, because the wheels of industry are more important for de fence of our country and home than the silent guns that won't be. fired. Let each one go on boldly with en terprises in hand, extend our domestic service, do not tat our development lag for a moment. The man who stops still and allows industrial life-to become idle for one moment at the present time is a trai tor to Australia. By i...
