KEEP YOUR GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
:V £, ;KEEP YOUR GRIT. Hang on! Cling on! No matter what they say.;; ; . . v^/ Push, on! Sing on!-Things will come your way. Sitting down and whining never helps a bit; Best way to get there is by keeping up your grit. Don't give up hoping when the ship goes down; Grab a spar or something—just re fuse to. drown. Don't think you're dying just because you're hit, Smile in face of danger and hang to your grit. Folks die too easy—they sort of fade away; Make a little error, and give up in dismay. Kind of man that's needed is the' man of ready wit, To laugh at pain and trouble and keep his grit.

Then he hauled out the snake^by main strength and allowed the...

Porepunkah. From our Correspondent. Tuesday. Football. The meeting of Porepunkah and Wandiligong teams on the local ground on Saturday drew a large attendance from all parts of the district, including man}' from Myr tleford; but the spectators were treated 10 a display which could not be termed really interesting.

Wan diligong had their skipper, Jackson, back with them, and Porepunkah's big follower (Coventry) captained the locals.

FOR MARRIED FOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
FOR MARRIED FOLK. Society requires that, whatever their private relations, husband and wife •face the world as a unit, harmoniouB, and with interests identical. One thing good form imperatively demands—that by no mischance, no loss of self-c ntrol, shall family dis cords he revealed to strangers, chil dren or servants.

Recreation Reserve for Whorouly. A public meeting was held at Whorouly last week to consider what steps should be taken, to pro cure a recreation ground for the residents.

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution in the volume of the human stream that sets towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On Sabbath after Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" be out of date, and brevity's the aim Of many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As when the Reverend John Macduff preached sermons sad and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir for Sunday's boating song? When joys of Sydney Harbor to the Sydney people call, The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may be right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus. will not seek To justify the way they spend their holiday per week. x,or yet can Peter well condemn the pleasant things they do, For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does 'em too. When he was young he " went to church because he had to go, , But now he's wise to all the...
DOWN WITH THE PEDESTRIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
DOWN WITH THE PEDESTRIAN. Owing to the ever-increasing perils of tlie traffic in the city streets the pedestrian has been much discussed of late by motorists, who are anxious to - keep the pedestrian in his proper place, which seems to tie on the foot path, and nowhere else. It is there fore not surprising that rhe pedes trian, after reading the opinions ex pressed about him by motorists, and enjoying a hearty supper, should have dreamt that he was present—a soli t. x-y pedestrian, at a meeting of in oignant motorists, and heard the fol lowing speech:— "If we do not take prompt action, .-fellow-motorists, not one of us will be alive in Melbourne in another year. During the past 12 months 275 poor motorists have been run over and kined-by pedestrians; 3119 have been seriously injured, 1285 being cripplea lor life. (Groans.) The lives of mo torists will never be safe while pe destrians are allowed to encroach upon the roadways. No motorist ri the city streets will ever be sure of seei...
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to make firm friend ships with their small contemporaries. I This should be a watchful period for ) mothers, for these early friendships s have-a marked influence on the mind, morals and manners of a child. | Nearly every character is moulded !| very largely bV early companionship ij and surroundings. Every mother !j should take care to be her children's J companion as far as possible, for she \ may 'be quite sure that if they are left \ to the care of servants, they will at» the l?est only attain the ideal manners f and customs of the nursery or ser.-1 vants's hall, which are not quite those :j of the cultured classes. Children re-1 quire the companionship of little folk i of their own age, and a mother should ' be so much her children's friend that: she knows all their associates, and is able to nip in the bud any acquaint ance which she thinks undesirable. The mother who, to save herself fa tigue, lets he...
