THE MAKING OF AN OFFICER. Qualities That Count. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917

THE MAKING OF AN OFFICER. Qualities That Count. Speaking particularly of the quali ties that are needed in an officer, Major-General W. P. Braitlnvaite, C.B., formerly Chief of Staff at the Dardanelles, recently addressed the pupils of tlie Bedford Grammar School. He pointed out that at school pupils required fairness and justice of their masters, and ths masters loyalty and discipline of the pupils. These 'were the fundamental rules of a sol dier's- life, and if an officer possessed them tlie men would follow him any where, in any circumstances. "Look well, therefore," he urged, "to what is required of you, for the lives of men will be in your care. Powpr will be put in your hands; see that you use it aright." Resolution was a very infectious quality, and the want of it was equally infectious. Officers, too, must have a self-confidence founded on a know ledge of their profession and of their power to carry through what they had conceived. Bravery was not only mere physical gallantr...

CHAPTER VII. Cicely Elstree stood at the door' of her homestead in far-off Queensland. She was shading her eyes with her hand, as she looked out over the wide* expanse of dried grass and scrub to the ridge of hills that stood up big and dark against the horizon. - Stephen had ridden away yesterday to the nearest township on business, and though they had been parted only twenty-four hours, already Cicely was oppressed by a sense of loss, as well as by a feeling of overhanging calam ity for which she could not in any way account . There; wais-no sign of any rider as far as she could see, strain- her eyes as she might. From behind her there came a loud wailing cry, arid "a new' light of mother-love shone in Cicely's eyes as she ran in doors to answer it. She turned Into the room on the right of the central passage, and caught up the ;child who lay in a cradle near the fireplace. Little-Anthony was just a-year-old..

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL. Fifty-Six-Year-Old Legacies. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL; Fifty-Six-Year-Old Legacies. Legacies in an extraordinary will drafted in 18G0 are now payable- on account of the high price of bread and oatmeal. Fifty-six years ago Mr. George Bruce, a farmer, of Green lmowe, Berwickshire, instructed the trustees in his will to invest one-fiftli of nis estate in Government stock, and allow the interest to accumulate till the retail price of oatmeal in Kelso should reach the price of 2/8 a stone, and the 41b. loaf was sold for lid. When the time occurred the trus tees were empowered to apply and distribute the accumulated fund among poor people, preferably those not in receipt of more than 10/- a week, who were members of several named churches in the district. The loaf is now selling for lid., and oat meal has long ago exceeded the price mentioned in the will. It is, however, feared by those liv ing in the parishes referred to in the will that people who are not earning 10/- a week will be difficult to find, since war bonuse...

BEST WORK A^TER FIFTY. The Older the Wiser. ! One gets rather tired of hearing ithat th\s is a "young man's age." It lis not. Young men do great work 'nowadays, and always have, and al jways will. But one does not often see ?tliem at the head of the financial or educational or literary world. After : so-called "middle age" most of the [world's great men have done their ;be'st work. Here are one or two in stances: ! "Darwin, author of "Origin of Spe ;cies," written at the age of fifty years. Herbert Spencer made a rough outline of his "Sympathetic Philosophy"' when forty years old, wrote" "Principles of Psychology" when fifty-two years old, and "Jus tin" at seventy-one years. Richard Wagner accomplished more after the age of fifty than before. "Parsifal" was written when he was sixty-four years old. Haydn composed "The Creation" at sixty-seven years of age, and "The Seasons" some years later. Christopher Columbus was fifty-six years old when he discovered America. Goethe did most of ...
