FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 26 August 1914
FHOM VARIOUS-SOURCES. A Melbourne coroner once made the sage remark that on occasions people commit suicide by inadvertence, so to speak. He was referring to the fool who looks down the muzzle of a gun and pulls the trigger to see if it works right, or the man who goes to see where a gas tank leaks with a lighted candle in his hand. The limit ought to have been reached long since, :lut a London man takes the cake, lie wanted to drown a dog, so he took (he hapless animal and proceeded to a swiftly-running stream. On. the way he filled his pockets with stones. When he came to the point of sacri fice he had to descend some slippery steps to the turbid waters, and, his feet failing him, he slid into the water, whilst the dog smiled on the s^eps. .He might have struggled out but for tli-: stones in his pocket. The | dog went home and reflected on the ! matter of narrow escapes. I None but the brave deserve the fair, and rone but the brave can live with some of them. "Does Mr. Mining-mar....

OUT OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 26 August 1914
OUT OF IT. O, see the mail! In utter gloom He leaves' the gaily lighted room, He hears the sound of laughter gay, He has a look of dull dismay. While others wear a joyous grin As kindly sounds the ragtime din, He turns away and lets them prance, The man who never learned to dance. A man may study all the arts, May read the sea and sky by charts, May know the history of the law From Moses down to Harry Thaw. He may have treasure locked- away And power other men to sway, But where's the use. _ He stands no chance,. The man .who never learned to dance. .

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 2 September 1914
Toot Your Own Horn. A hen. is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an. egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little bees they buzz, bulls .bellow, and cows moo, and tivatch dogs bark, and ganders quack, and doves and pigeons coo. The-: peacock spreads his tail, ana fequeaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that" Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.
