FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

FAILURES DUE TP LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure In j fife," said an observant business man, i "so far as I have studied the ques- ' tion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course,. not, as a rule, a matter in -which the sufferer pan be held responsible. If a man be 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 lific parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and it is jargely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who (drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It is they who are extravagant, because the extravagant man is too iazy 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 hie normal character."

Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

Local and General News It has been said, rightly or wrongly, that Australian's are too fond of sport. Such an appellation cannot, however, be laid at the door of a young man resident in the Hamilton district. Although well past the years of discretion, this young fellow, (who,by the way is of German extraction) bad never been on a race course, nor had he ever seen a field of race horses extended. His parents, being antagonistic to such a form of sport, had precluded their hope ful from sharing in the pleasures and delights of such a thrilling recrcation. But the young man had an inherent desire to see a horse race, and that burning wish was fanned into flame on Monday, when he left his parent's portal roof, and directed his footsteps to the Penshurst races. He duly ar rived at the course and spent, needless to state, a remarkably happy tijne. The first race came on, and his ambition to "make a rise" got the better of him. He picked his fancy, and it won. But he was sore troubled. Be...

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, APRIL 18. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 April 1914

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, APRIL 18. Published Wednesday and Saturday Few branches of the law have ex panded more rapidly than the law relating to public health. The loss of potential wealth incurred through preventable diseases is of grave concern to the nation. Why, then, should the forces engaged in the work of protecting public health be made less efficient ? The concentration of full control in the departmental offices would not make for effectual administration. One direction in particular in which valuable work can be accom plished by the Board of Health, provided it is armed with statutory power, is in regard to the adminis tration by local health authorities. The Board should control, stimu late, and, where necessary, supple ment the efforts of local authorities. A decent environment for every citizen is now a postulate of political science, but some municipalities appear to devote very scant atten tion to such important matters as hygienic surroundings. The pow ers of local ...

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. Writing on the subject of tea, coffeo and oncoa. Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs savs: — * 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 tho other two is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa is a positive food, which 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 not infuse t.oo long—what is called "stand." Recol lect that very hard water will not make very good tea without, prepara tion. Milk and sugar make a foot? of it. And tea made with Jinking water and infused for five minutes is a most excellent piek-mo-up in conrti tior.s of ' temporary exhaustion. A...
