WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 17 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some | thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Ijife is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at lastr. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant ip a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier 1 than practising, but not half so «.i I fectuai. I Everything that thou reprovent in : another, thou must most caretuily I avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which tak<?s a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. I Many of the things which worry ! us most ar? tVifles when we come to • •? ;«h)inc Diem closely. To 'have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne.

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 17 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chlllon," is supposed to be writ- ' ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa-1 triot, whilst ho was incarcerated iu : the Chateau of Chlllon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst !'yron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. ; Nevertheless, some notable literary 1 achievements have been . really writ- j ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out- j standing being two of the world's < greatest clnsslcs, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro j gross." It only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity tliey would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by motlern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poeni be...

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 17 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WOKK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum. An" don't set tight your lips as if tliey speechless were, an' dumb, When some hard t:isk's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest gleo, While Into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easlest's its lot, An' always sings thr> loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. "To moke of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world aro solved by those who smile. Abo Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed hini, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, }5ut shook with hea...

Quite Lively Enough. Seated 011 an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled Rtin. A passing tourist stopped to eliat, and aalted lilni bow far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two milts," he re plied. "As far as thai? You must find it lather lonely here."

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 17 April 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. In the deep pine forests of Norway the woodcutters sometimes find a serpentine object, lifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was mado up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the «ciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be twoen forty and fifty feet and several Inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men* tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow, ami upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpose...

III. it was almost dusk when they re turned to the Oastle, so altruistic had been their motives of delay. Lights shone from all the upper windows o£ that venerable pile. Footmen ill the halls below walked with the measured step'of those who have found an oc cupation again atter many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to lier own cell during these hours of prescribed carnival, but he would not hear of It. "You owe me that much," he said. "You must save me frrfni tho tigers." She made no answer, and they en teral the great hall together. There were guests already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy Bince lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she went up the great stair case from the garden. He had been playing at tramways with the Archdeacon, and that vener able functionary rose from the floor with knees which bore w...

It was not dark when she went down the great. drive towards the spa road, and tile Forth Bridge could still be discerned far away at the narrows of the estuary. Behind her lay the Bloomy pile of Aberfc-ldy Castle; looking just the same as it had done at the hour of dawn just live days ago. Much had happened ill those intervening hours. She had heard and answered the story of a man's love; had been offered a home and had refusedit; had heeji.in vited to become the mistress of an that splendid domain and had answered that she dure not. Now she was just Ldla Shane again, going-out friend less into the world, and knowing not what house would harbor her. Desdy was greatly excited by this journey at nightfall, just as lie had 'been at Nowcnstlo when thev went aboard the yacht. His childish prat tle perplexed her and was not the least ot her troubles.
