The nineteenth cen thry, she said. had gone for ever, and with all our progress and civillsation we had not come much nearer the real secret of happiness than our an cestors. The twenltictl century found us still searching. asking the same ol01 luestion-howr to be happy? It had been declared that we had lost the art of being happy in the old, simple ways, and that the brightness and :nirrh which uoed to make our Eng land merrie Eng:and" had gone for ever. She itliought there sas some truth in tthis, and the reason was not far to eCek-wre thought too much of ourselees and too little of our neigh hors.

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 11 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no end to tile resources of anger. Meln use it in so squlnand(erinlg a way, that one is surprised that the stock cloes not run out. But even tils wastefulness of tile precious commuo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It Is squandered. It is not slkilfully shot, as a marksman sloots at a target. Indeed, men sllow clearly enough that they do not know thle value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best ngun-powder, and ought to be used with an economy at least equal to that of thie sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex plodlng his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper invaluable treasure of a...

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 11 June 1914
A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correslpondent of "To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ish midshipltuan's adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman ifrom one of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Toklo in a rickshaw. There was a keen breeze blowing, but it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he Ihadn't any. But if his face were de void of hirsute adtlornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions, which hIe puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simnple facts were nioted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap ianese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of tile "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thougiht of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "I-la! ha!" and ordtle...
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 11 June 1914
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. Rather a risky substitute for a bat tlefield is the top of an omnibus, but struggles on "lmperlales," as tney are termed In Paris. The latest adventure, says the Paris c rrespondent of the "Daily Tele graph." of the sort owed its origin to a very comical mistake.

TO A BIRD. (Lines suggested by seeing one on a lady's hat in church.) Cruel the art, Poor bird, that killed and placed you there, To form a part Of yonder lady's plumage rare! Who will consent That she, who hither came to pray, Has a heart as innocent As yours cVas in Its gladsome day? And who call tell if the praise she offers in this throng Is as acceptable As once ascended with your song? Whatever land Claimed your nativity, there T'hile same kind eland Created you, that did this lady fair. Throughout your ldays Your little throat was made and meant To sing God's praise, Unharmed, a harmless instrument.

READING IN BED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 11 June 1914
READING IN BED. We all reard In bed, but, according to the "Lancet," it is an "unhailthy proc tice." Dr. HRgo Felchenfeld, of Derlui, has recentlyr made 'i' study of the sub jact with the object of fltiding out cx actly what harm is likely to result from t~e habit. 15e flnds thie chief danger is to.thle eyes, partly because the light uscd Is frequentlY Insufli clecnt, and so placed as to dazzle Utem, and partly because it is'dlltcult to hold the book so that full benelit is ob. tained from the use of both eyes. This Is more particularly the case when the reader is lying on one side. Again, there is generally a tempta tion to hold the bookl: too close to tile eyes, and this of itself tends to in duce myopin. Very particularly is this result to libe feared in the case of yOUn? Ipersons whose eyes are not fully developed. For this reason boys and girls under cIghlteen should, D)r. Feilclhenfeld advises, be strictly for. bidderu to read in bed. The "Lancet." however, has a word in defen...
