PREMIERS IN CONFERENCE. THE LIONS IN THE WAY. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 8 April 1914
PREMIERS IN CONFER" ENOE, TlHi LIONS IN THE WAY, [CoNTmnUwTn], To the many the outcome of a Premiers' Conference is always apt to Le disappointing, Before the Aood. gates of talk are loosed, the papers refer lightbheartedly to " questions oin which all thoughtful elttZons are agreed." For example, nobody who counts denies that Australia's vacant spaces should be filled with the right stamp of settler, that the lowest rate of interest obtainable should be paid on the £175,000,000 which the States owe, that a uniform railway giuge would make for national safety and efficiency. But when detail is reached difiloultion of three kinds arise :-?irset, the financial; second, the party; third, those due to the State dread of Commonwealth aggression. Unfortunately, it is diflicult to surmise how the party spirit is to be laid even for a day, Labor forced a hide-bound system on the Common. wealth, Under that system if the Cook Ministry does any good thing its members will go to the electors cl...
Ended Happily. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
Ended Happily, As the farmer's wife laid down tihe magazine that she had been reading and .oulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye flinished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, "just this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his iaper, "that it ended happy?" "Yea," answered Maria. "The beau. tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the nunei an' the price of the medicine whit cured her." Men always think a woman inter esthug when they -hoar she is pretty, but tlhey don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.
What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car riage were listening with joyful inter eat to the tales of the young man in the corner, -HIe had been all over the world several times, apparently, and his adventures had been marvellous. "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We ,were in Central Africa, tra velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, 'when we camped, I had strolled off while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the heads of three natlyes who were watching me. What was I do do? My gun was at the camp, To turn back meant having: d-ears through me, In a moment I iecided, Close by were some stones, Pretending I didn't see the niggers, I bent down'as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one found its mark, and the three natives dropped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." iThen...

Tlhe history of the past and presenlt, my siters', is colored criimou with the deeds and misdeeds of Man, the Monster, He stays out late and comes homen early, Hoe breaks open the childron's money-boxes and buys Wild Woodbines with their dear little far things. In the oldon days he would neglect his wife whileo 11 went to the tourney; now he neglects her whlle he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree. In thoso same olden day0 s he would makel of her a beast of burdon, now he burdens her with beasts-what with his ferrets, his dogs, his pigeons, and his gramophlones!

DON'T WORRY. The Plague went forth In the land, and one met him asking if he could stay his cruel hand, The Plague an. swered that he meant to Ibe merciful; he would, only take five thousand from the earth. Some time afterwards these two met again, "So thou art a liar as well as a mur derer," said- the other to the Plague; "thy five thousand meant fifty thou. sand," "Not so," answered the Plague, "I took but my five thousand-Fear and Worry killed the others,"
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOY8. A great deal of nonsense, as it seems to me, is often talked about the danger of allowing boys who are deli. cate or suffer from some physical in. firnity to face the supposed rigors of public school life, It is supposed in many quarters that a 'weakly boy, at one of the ,big schools, has his life Lade a 'burden to him by his compan. ions, and runs the risk of having his health completely shattered, If the school is carefully chosen and is one :n which there is anything approach. ing a decent tone, I cannot help thinking that the opposite of this is ilmost invariably the case, Boys have more natural good-feel ing than they are sometimes given credit for, and in a good school the greatest consideration is shown by the boys for ai colnpaniol who suffers front some physical disability. More ,.ver, the watchful care which a boy receives at school (particularly if the medical authorities have booen warned beforehand), coupled with the regular life and d...

A Part of the Winter. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
A Part of the Winter, A Chicago mining engineer tells of a law, suit tried in that city, wherein one of the witnesses was an old pro spector from a mining gettlement in the North-West, a settlement situated about twelve thousand feet above the sea level, where the snow drifts and packs and remain all the year round. "How long have you lived in Mar. shall?" asked the lawyer, conducting the examination of the old prospec "The best part of one winter," "That's very Indefinite," said the lawyer. "What do you mean tby the best part of one winter?" "Well," said the witness, after due deliberation and reflection, "I've 'been up there about eleven months,"
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS," The Rev. George Denyor, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, Issued some novel "drink points" in his parochial letter for November. He stated:- The man who can afford to get drunk is too rich, The best thing to keep in the beer. bottle is the cork. If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you. The man who tried, to drown his sorrow in drink found. that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a peat in the church. It takes a long time to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to ago you.
"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
"BE A WOMAN." "le a man" is an injunction which implies that one is endeifvoring to aim at achieving all that is 'best in manhood, No one would dream of stinulating a person's ambition to loftier ideals by bidding him "1Be a getitleman," Likewise, there should be no oftence in the use of the word "woman," The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, onalbles it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be marked off as having more of the good things of this world than the others, but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the humblest in the land who is contril buting something through her woman liness towards ,making the commun. Ity around her richer !by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacrl lice, and her love,
PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
PATIENCE. "To know how to wait," says De falistre, "Is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower it the great rope snap. poed ill mid-ocean, and when they grap. pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of tho inventor rewarded, In life's school one of the hardest, lessons is to learn to wait patiently. It has been said that speech has b',eni given to women to conceal thirh' thoughts, but. it seldoln even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has beeoon trying to get a curate. We know many old maids who have been trying f'or years. Mtost things we havoen' the slight est right, to are rather pleasanti
HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE, "Never ask a woman to mend any thing," said the cynical old Paterfa. millas. "When I watit a garment mended I take it to my wife, flourish it around a little, and say, 'Where's that ragabag?' 'What do you want ,with the rag-,bag?' asks my wife, Her suspicions are roused at once. 'I want to throw this thing away. It's worn out,' I say, with a few more flourishes., 'Let me see it,' r)' wife says. Of course, I pass it over and she examines it, 'Why, it only needs -,' and then she mends it:"

"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 April 1914
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." At a certain railway station in the North of Ireland a farmor was wait. ing for tho train with a donkey hr had purchased. On tho arrival of the train at the station the falvne: asked the guard where he would put the donkey. T'he guard, who was in a hurry, I replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied the donkey to a buffer and then got intc the carriage himself. As the train was flying along at express speed Pat, turning to a conm panlon, said, "By gosh, boy, Noddy't footing it now!" The average individual who sell, tickets in a railway station acts like a nihilist; but down in his heart h1 feels himself nothing less than I czar.,
