But with friendly per sistence, which yet was not immoderato, Thackeray- declared that no excuse could be allowed, because it would bo n manifest injustice to every other modes) man at the table, and put a summary ond to the hilarity. It was to be a gon eral sacrifice, a round-table ol magna nimity. "'Now, Wallack," he continued, "wo all know you to be a truthful man. You can, of course, since you say so, neither sing nor tell a stoiy. Bnt I toll you what, you can do, and what every soul at this table known y...

Meyers, of Toora, will regrt-t hear that they have suffered a bereavement, by the death of Mr. Meyers' mother, the sad news bei:is conveyed by telegraph from Ba>rn:, dale on Tuesday morning. Deceased was an old pioneer of that part of Gippsland, and had reached the ripe age of 80 years, and had been a con stant sufferer for nearly two years, so that her end came as a relief. The deceased was the first lady to ride on horseback over the Fainting Range, into Omeo, which in those days was an experience which even a man dared to venture upon. She was also one of the first to sign the pledge in Ireland, when Father Hayes, the eminet Irish priest, com-, menced his campaign in that coun try against the drink traffic.

Death of the Pope. REFERENCE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 28 August 1914

Death of the Pope. IlEFEIJEXCE IN THE CATHOLIC CHUHCH. The death of the Pope, hastened as it was by the traffic news of the European war, has been the chief topic of conversation, and has had a. sobering effect on men's minds, mak ing them realise in the most drastic way the awful horror of the holo caust in which men who have no personal quarrel are being daily butchered in thousands to make a mad monarch's holiday. The local priests have been the recipients or ■messages of sympathy, personal and official, from people of all denomina tions in the district. On last Sun day Father McDonnell, at Yarram. and Father Stirling, at Toora and Foster, in the usual way asked the prayers of the fa'thful for the repose of the soul of the late Pius X. Both charity and religion, he said, bind all Catholics to pray fervently for their dead Pope who was their guide, their friend and their father. He filled the highest and most responsi ble position in the church, and the greater the responsibility ...

Now! [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 28 August 1914

Wow! An English nobleman yrho dictl re cently was frequently spoken of among liis fellows as being "too good for this earth." He 'was excessively absent minded when in society, and passed much of his time in solitude and medi tation. "He was as pure and un worldly," says his biographer, "as a ba ing of another sphere.". Looking closely at his life, however, it appears, iu spite of the large oppor tunities which his wealth and rank gave him, to have been of little uso or value to his fellowmen. Aspirations and dreams, however high and noble, which never pass into words or actions, do not weigh heavily iu the world. When Priuco Iiismarck retired from gublic life last winter, a. member of tho eichstag said, shrewdly, "Tho power of the Prince for good or evil lay iu the uso which he made of tlie present mo^ men t. IIo never worked for to-mor row, but for to-day. Probably tho same criticism could be mado upon every man who exerts a liv ing force upon his generation. ITe lives not to drea...

A Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 4 September 1914

A Warning. The dean of. a certain cathedral was one day walking through the pre cincts when he came upon a laborer at work on a small plastering job. The man looked up at him, and went on with his work without touching his cap. This lack of due respect notfed the dean, who purposely passed tlie place again shortly afterwards. Agaiu the man failed to salute, and the dean said, reprovingly: "My man, do you know who I am? I am the dean of this cathedral." The laborer glanced from the short tempered cleric to the lofty building, and replied: "Darned good job, too—mind you don't lose it."
