Presbyterian jubilee Fete. A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. £80 TAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

Presbyterian jubilee Fete. A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. £80 TAKEN. The Jubilee Fete, held "last Thursday by the ladies of the Lismore Presbyter ian Church mainly on behalf of the various organisations conducted by the Presbyterian Church of Victoria, was a highly successful /unction. Very com plete and careful preparations had been made, the ladies having been engaged for some months previously in acquiring and making up articles that were bound to meet with a ready sale when offered to a sympathetic and discerning public, bent not only on helping a good cause but on getting fair value for their money. The attractive manner in which the goods were displayed un doubtedly contributed very largely to the rapid clearance that was effected when the various stall-holders were permitted to get to business. A. hall like the Lismore Mechanics' lends it self readily to the decorators' art, and on Thursday it presented a really beau tiful appearance. The general effect was seen to best advantage dur...

SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. A little, quiet, book-lined office in. the heart of the West End of London is occupied by a gentleman who is prepared to turn out speeches for all' occasions. During a recent interview the speechmaker-in-chief remarked7 that, while speeches have often been written by others than those who de liver them, he thinks his is the first attempt to concentrate the supply and to establish the new profession of gentleman speechmaker. 'I am as ready with an after-dinner speech as any other," he said. "They can be bright or serious as required, and I have already prepared a good' many speecnes which have been de livered with success in different parts of the country. 'Impromptus' are a specialty. "The method is simple enough. I ark clients to supply me with any lo cal allusions they require, and an idea, ir they have one, of the trend" of the speech. The rest they can leave to ine.

Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me of one thing." "What's that?" "That there are mighty few daya in the year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." Friendship can sometimes show Its strength as much by the readiness with which it accepts benefits as by the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side.

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

JOHN LEE'S DREAM. Sentenced to death for the murder of Emma Keyse, lady-in-waiting to the lato Queen Victoria, at Babbicombe, near Torquay, John Lee was brought out for execution in Exeter Gaol on February 25, 1885. Overnight Lee had dreamt that three attempts would be made to carry out the sentence, but that all three would prove unsuccess ful, and h'3 life be preserred. He re vealed this to Warder Bennett, who reported the circumstance to the go vernor of the prison. All possible pre caution was taken; but, nevertheless, Lee escaped the gallows. Everything having been made ready, Lee stood on the trap of the gallows, which had just recently been erected. The signal was given, and Berry, the executioner, pulled the lever-'but the trap refused to fall! The faces of all present expressed be wilderment. Berry gave the lever an other feverish pull, and the warders on either side stamped upon the trap; but it would not move. Lee was then marched off, with the cap still over his face, an...

THE LAND OF TAXES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

THE LAND OF TAXES. Everything in Japan is taxed. There are stamps on all bank cheques, and when you pay your bill your receipt has a Btamp. Every ibusiness is tax ed according to the amount of its vol ume, and every peddler, chauffeur, and jinriksha man pays a license. There is a tax on medicines, ojn sake and liquors and on Japanese soy, the sauce which the people use with their food. All incomes pay taxes, and these grow with the amount of one's proper ty. There are about 8,000,000. famil ies in Japan, and all are expected to pay a certain percentage if they make more than £35 a year. There are, of course, taxes on lands, which now run from 3 per cent, upward to 17 per cent., according to" the class of the land.

TRICKING THE PORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

TRICKING THE PORTERS. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which, are sometimes made against railway servants, Mr. W. P. Jackson, tne general manager of the North British Railway Company, has been telling a good atory, the tacts of which, he said, were ascertained in the investigation of a complaint made by the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of *!*.: 3 Glasgow stations, and going up to a porter said: "I say, porter, can you tell me where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" he asked. "What have you got to do with that? Can you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell without ?" "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get someone else to help me." With that the old lady toddled far ther up the platform, and meeting an other porter propounded her conun drum to him. "Where are you going, madam?" was his natural question. "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as impertinent as your mate. I'm not go jug to tell you where I'm goi...

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. If neither husband nor wife has married for love, tout merely for mon ey, or any other mundane motive. If mealB are ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it. If the income, though well managed and- made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If the husband be a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold matters, and if he thinks he knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character. If the husband trieB to be mistress as well as~~master of the house, or the wife master as well as mistress of the house. If, when dark days come, husband and wife forget they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If the wife is totally ignorant of even the rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dress ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is a strange but undeniable fact that most people hardly ever hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you will sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise tha: it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly Htop talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a great start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a. very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "WIJO is that meant for?" and otiier people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you-don't you re cognise it?" and then you rcallbe how deaf to your own voice you have been for many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photbijVtiph ,and that is why a photograph is always some thing o...

EVERY MAN, WOMAfl, AND CHILD BOOKED. The first thing that strikes the liberty-loving person when he settles down in Berlin, or even puts up at a boarding-house for a short stay, is the "Anmeldungspfiicht," or duty of re porting oneself to the police. Before he has been in the house many hours he is presented with a printed form on which he is compelled to fill in all kinds of particulars about himself under penalty oX a heavy fine and eventually Imprisonment if he falls to do so, or if he writes down de tails which the police afterwards as certain to be untrue. First of all the newcomer has to write down his full name, the exact date of his birthday, the name of the place in which he was (born, and the nature of his occupation. Then he must state what his religion is, and if he believes in none at all he must duly enter himself as an infidel. Fur ther, he must state what his nation ality is, and whether he is in posses sion of a passport to prove his iden tity. These particulars are...

When you feel badly used because you have to do so many things for yourself, remember that it is exceed ingly good for you. It would be very jolly to have people around to do everything for you-but in time you would become a mental and moral mollusc.

HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 10 June 1914

HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. All children possess imagination in a greater or less degree, and in the management of the nursery this facul ty may be ranked among the import* ant ones. In trifling matters, where no real principle is involved I always consider the easiest way the best way,, as, for "instance, this morning, when, my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual, and curling her tiny pink toes be neath her gown, declaring mischiev osuly she wouldn't have any 'tock in's on at all." For a minute I was nonplussed.. Baby had not ben well for several days and was just in the humor to rebel vigorously against enforced' obedience. Papa was in the sound morning sleep that benefits a night" worker, a cry must be avoided if pos sible, so, as a thought struck me, I held the small stocking invitingly" open and said pleasantly, "The naugh ty little food said it wouldn't go into this stocking, but the stoc...
