HARRY LAUDER. THE ORIGINAL TIGHTWAD. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 April 1914

HARRY LAUDER. THE ORIGINAL, TIGHTWAD. "Where did Harry Lauder get the reputation of being the original tightwad ?' asked, some one. At the risk of being thrown out of the window into the braw bricht night, an interviewer entered Air. Lauder's drawingroom at the Oriental Hotel on Tuesda}' evening, and put the question to him. He may be a tightwad, but he is good natured. He paused with his pipe half way to his lips, and regarded his questioner curiously. Then he threw back his head and gave a shout of laughter. "All Good Advertising" "Ah, my dear young lady f" he cried. "Ye sure have your 'nerve with ye ?, as the sayin' is here. Now let me tell ye a bit about this." (You must put in the dialect for yourself ; Harry Lauder speaks with a Scottish accent off the stage as well as on it.) "it's hard to tell where all the things told about me started, but there was never a Scotchman yet who was not called stingy. Andrew Carnegie is doing his best to disprove the statement, but most of us p...

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 April 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. ■"For women, a capacity for teara is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Tears—warm p.nd ready ones—are a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emo< tioa, a .sort of liquid lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pas sion. "The woman who cannot weep la she who jkeeps up her powers of thinking, and whose facia?^)'.ines and grey hairs come, readily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked eltect in general tern oerament.

It was in the gloom of a mother'? death, deepened by his poverty, tha Johnson penned the charming tale of "Ri\sseias."

It was from a sick bed. In sore dis tress and in a necessitous exile, that Tom Hood shook all England with laughter.

PRESBYTERIAN SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 April 1914

PRESBYTERIAN SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. On Monday evening the Presby terian Sabbath school hall (the largest hall in the town) was filled with an interested audience. It was estimated that upwards of 200 were present. The feature of the evening was the rendering of the beautiful cantata entitled "Under the palms" by the children and choir. The large specially-arranged platform was artistically decorated with huge palms and evergreens. The Rev. W. M'Bride occupied the chair, and after the hymn "All hail the power of Jesus name" and prayer, he briefly explained the scriptural meaning of the cantata. Then Mr. Neilson took the baton and for one hour and ten minutes the audience listened as the child ren and choir sang their parts. The solos, quartettes, and choruses were all rendered in a manner that re flected great credit on the conduc tor, and the whole was very beau tiful and much appreciated by the large audience.

WELL-KNOWN FIGURE PASSES. EX-COUNCILLOR CHARLES WILLIAM CLIFFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 April 1914

EX-C8U^£SLLQift CHARLES W1LUAM CLIFFORD. Widespread feelings of regret were expressed early yesterday morning when the sad message was received from Melbourne that ex councillor Charles William Clifford, of IColora, had passed away on Thursday night. The details of the sad and sudden end were very meague, as Cr. Clifford had only gone to the city a few days .ago. For a long time he has suffered from heart trouble, and it was due to his failing health that caused him to retire from the Mortlake Shire Council, as the representative of the Mortlake riding four weeks ago. Although his most intimate friends knew that his health was not what it might be, yet few realised that the life of such a sturdy pioneer was soon to be I closed. All too rapidly the ranks of our pioneers are being thinned, and during the past two years the town and district of Mortlake has lost several of its very best citizens. The rapid departure of one follow ing upon the heels of another makes one wonder who will ...

WILKIN 3' 8ISTE* I knew Wilkins when he was a boy, I went to school with him. We boys used to despise him; we often got up In the night to hate him. You see, It was this way.

Let not your recreations be lavish Bpenders of your time, but choose $uch which are healthful, short, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; but at no hand dwell in them or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sports and calls it recreation Is like him whose garment is all made of fringes and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use less. And, therefore, avoid such games which require much time or long at tendance, or which are apt to steal the affections from more severe em ployments.
