Don't Whine. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 August 1884

Don't Whine. Beecher's. latest oddity in slrnontsing is as follows: "Don't put on sackcloth when you have better clothes to wear. Don't bow yoifir headc'lke a bulrush, but go with head erect, as a son of God, Don't whine before God. .You are not a slave. .I will not crawl before God on my belly because I am so filthy and sinful. I am not filthy and sinful, and I won't say so. I go before God as a nobleman, saying, ' I aeknowledge my irmper fections; nevertheless, I am your son.' TRe joice in the Lord always."

Testing a Brake. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 16 August 1884

Testing a Brake. During the recent experiments with the Westinghouse brake on railway, line in Brazil, the nerves of an engine-driver were put to a severe test. Without his know- ledge, a capital imitation of a huge mass of rock, painted on cardboard, had been   erected at a certain spot where there is a curve on that portion of the line over which he had to pass. The obstacle was not dis- covered until the train was close upon it ; yet the engine-driver had sufficient presence of mind to turn on the brake and pull up the train a few paces from the object in question. The railway directors had now satisfied themselves as to the superior excel- lence of the new brake, but it was at the expense of the poor driver, who was taken seriously ill as a result of the mental shock which he had sustained.
