THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. The motives to exertion furnished by the possession of a family of chil dren are as powerful as ever moved heart or hand. The secret of many a struggle and triumph in life's battle may 'be found at home in the shape of an infant in its mother's lap. The man who has children dependent on him will—must-—struggle manfully, and bear up against the roost adverse circumstances. The thought that the joy of their innocent young lives de pends upon his courage, his persever ance, his energy—thiB thought will enable him to work- wonders, to achicve what will appear impossibili ties to the man who has only his own ] selfish needs, hiB own selfish ambi j tlon, to urge him on.

In the Tramcar. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

In the Tramcar. When a tramcar has its full com plement of passengers it is never an ?asy job to make one's -vva-" down the -entre gangway. No one, of course, knew that bet I ter than the conductor; but, seeing "hat while collecting fares he had i ^tumbled twice in two minutes- over the feet of Willie Smith, and seeing 'hat the aforesaid Master Willie was quite the smallest passenger on board, he had a nasty suspicion that on each occasion a foot had been put ! out deliberately to trip him. - "Some people seem to have mighty I '—kward sons," remarked the con ductor, casting a malicious glance' to- - j wards the mother. "Yes," replied the ladv thus ad dressed; "that's exactly what I was '^inking about your poor mother!"

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

MORAL REFLECTIONS. True manhood comes from self-con trol—from subjection of the lower powers to the higher conditions of our being. The road ambition travels is too narrow for friendship, too crooked for love, too rugged for honesty, too dark for science. Do not make the mistake of trying to forget your mistakes. Keep them in mind, study them, and use them as helps to success. If you would touch a nettle without being stung by it take hold of it stout ly. Do the same to other annoyances and few things will ever disturb you. Music helps soldiers to drill and march. The tunes which the bands play are lively and merry, for as the music is so will be the march. It is possible to travel through life to the tune of praise. The habit of counting our mercies is as easy to form as the habit of grumbling. What a man loves colors his life as surely as a dye colors what is plunged into it. A man who loves money is colored in all his being by that love. His whole nature daily grows differ ent fr...

Magnetism. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

Magnetism. The annual fancy-dress bail of the Mayfield C.C. was the talk of the 'own. Amongst the players keen rivalry existed ai to who would ap pear in the best "make-up." The night arrived. Brown, the bowler, leaned sadly against the wall. He had come as Hamlet. William the Conqueror (or Watson, the wicketkeeper) t'hrew little glances at the crowd at the other end of the -oom. Just then Jones, the slashing batsman, arrived as -Oliver Crom well. "It's no good, Oliver," said Ham let; "we're all 'beat." _ "Beat! Who by?" inquired Oliver Cromwell. "That chap Tv-ho umpired in the " last match," was the reply. "He has come as a bargain, marked down to one and elevenpence three-farthings, and every blessfid girl's fighting to eet near him.

On Account. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

On Account. Peggy Ne-vvton had been a faithful ,'lousehold domestic for years, and did not grumble much when her wages were occasionally passed over. But as time went on and her wages fell more and more into arrears, sfie ventured to ask something "on ac count." '"Why, haven't I paid your wages lately, Peg? How careless of me!" ner mistress said. "I'm sorry I have no money in the house just now, bat here's a smart cloak which I've' "eased to wear and which" is only *. wee bit out of fashion. You'll take it in lieu of wages, won't you?" "No, ma'am, I'm sure I sha'n't,'' *nid Peg, wrathfully, eyeing the faded cloak. "A Peg I may be by name, 'but I won't be that sort of peg that people hang cast-off clothes on —not if I know it." There are two reasons why some people don't mind their own busi ■less. One is that they haven't any ■nind. the other that they haven't iny business.

"That may be," rejoined -her lady ship; "but a man of my husband's distinguished regiment rendering a service must drink with me." "Sure, in that case, yer honoress," replied Tat.

AN INDIAN SAND STORM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

AN INDIAN SAND STORM. Since sunset it had been growing gradually hotter until at last when we finally settled down to bed after | a few envious remarks, in which Es I quimaux and polar bears figured largely, there was none of us but would have gladly exchanged places with any furnace tender in England. It was far too hot to sleep under bed clothes, and we had for some time used them t supplement the pillow. After opening all doors and win dows to their fullest extent and ex plaining to the punkah-wallah that the stopping of the punkahs was the signal for his immediate assassina tion, we gradually dropped asleep. Two or three hours later I was aroused by what at first seemed to be hree or four batteries of artillery firing oil at close range. Upon sitting up under my mosquito net I discover ed the noise to be caused by the doors and windows banging to and I'ro. We who had not long been in the country were all the more astonished when we realised that all the time *hore was hardly a b...

FADS OF FATALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

FADS O? FATALISTS. A great- many people like to Imag ine in their own minds that they are fatalists—that is, that from the mo ment of their 'birth their destiny has 'been mapped out for them, and, that no effort upon their part, however strenuous, will have the slightest ef fect upon their careers. If they are destined to be successes in life, they will be so; if failures, nothing will prevent them. Of course, this way of viewing life, if strictly carried out, can have but one ending—failure. For it means that the individual who believes in it must simply allow himself to drift with the stream, trusting to his des tiny to land him at the right port, and if_that port happens to be the port of failure, he would put it down to his already-mapped-out career, and would- resign himself unconditionally to his fate, without attaching any blame to himself. But, luckily for the human race at large, nobody is really at heart a fatalist, any more than there is really such a thing as a genuine a...

FEDERAL ELECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 10 September 1914

FEDERAL ELECTIONS The Federal elections passed off quietjy on Saturday last, and result ed in the return of the Labor Party to power. The Labor Party in the House of Representatives did not lose one of their sitting member?, but the Liberal Party appear to have lost Corio, Indi, Grampians, Gipps land, and Riverina seats. In all those seats the Liberals are from 100 to 500 behind, and tl"' absentee votes are putting the Lib d. further be hind in each case, v i 'i the excep tion of Riverina. Victoria has de cided the elections. The Gippsland contest proved a tough battle, and the latest returns give Mr Wise a lead of about 450 over Mr Bennett. In the first count of 400 absentee votes Wise gained about 25, so we may conclude he will be returned. Mr Benrutt lost ground in practically every booth in the electorate. In some districts he went back considerably on last year's figures, and altogether lost over 3,000 votes. His majority in the Mirbjo North subdivision ""as (33 less. At Mardan...
