"My Mother's Eyes." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

"My Mother's Eyes." a newspaper recently invited its readers to state in a few words what they considered the most beautiful thing in the world.

Popular Holiday Resort. THE BEAUTIES OF HEALESVILLE (NOTES BY "OBSERVER.") [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

Popular Holiday Resort. THE BEAUTIES OP HEALESVILLE (notes bt "obskbveb.") Favorable weather conditions, supposed good roads, and a slightly seasoned automobile in which one has not had sufficient rides, gives a person a strong desire to go touring. After planning out a route which is most suitable with regard to roads, scenery, and distance, and after giving the car a slight over haul and tune up, there is a desire to have tho outward appearance of the vehicle as pleasing to the eye as possible. So with a band of 12 willing hands, certainly a multi tude for such a small contract, the deed has begun. The scene to an onlooker would be humorous. There only being enough surface for a fewer number of hands conse quently oach person uses one hand with which to polish. The other hand containing a dirty rag come;; in contact with somebody's white shirt, there leaves its trade mark, and the very shirts we were wear ing appeared as though they had been usod as polishers.

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. J When you hear a fellow boasting Of the brave deeds he has done, Don't disturb him, let him tell you All his smart things one by one; But remind him when he's finished— Yes, his pardon humbly beg— That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people— There are lots of them, you know— Who to promise aye are ready, At performing very slow. In fair weather they're staunch com rades, But in foul they show the leg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. Babbling streams make far more noise Than the stately rivers' flow Though upon the latter, commerce Busily goes to and fro. So it is with human mortals,. Workers on in silence peg; For the lien that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. So of boasters I would warn you. Don't believe half what they say, For the man who's aye a-blowing His own trumpet's just a jay. And experience will teach you Never of them favors beg; For the hen that cackles...

Does the Soul Die when the Heart Stops Beating? [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

Does the Sou! Die when the Heart Stops Beating ? T That the human soul can lie im xnortal in the old-fashioned sense is now proved by science to be an im possibility. Our body is made up of billions of little cells, and {ill our life, physi j Cul «nd mental, is the result of the activity of these cells. One typo j of coll makes the heart tissue, an other the bone tissue, und so on, What we Call the soul is a result of the activities of the nerve and brain cells. When the blood stream fails the hour for all cells has struck. When the brain cells die the soul ceases to exist. Tho maintenance of the cell de pends upon the food supply. Tho conditions are such that tho consti tuents of the food can never com pletely balance tho constituents of the living substance.
