been invited to address a meeting ex pressed opinions with which a local farmer, n plain, uncultured man, found fault. After some discussion, in which the sense of the meeting was clearly with the farmer, the ex pert lost his temper. "Sir," he said to his opponent, striving to speak coolly, "do you re alise that I have been at two univer sities, one in this country and one in Germany?" "What of that?" demanded the far mer. with a faintly nickering smile. "1 had a calf that was nursed by two cows, and the observation I made was the more he was nursed the greater calf he grew." J Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. There is something so penetrating about sunshine that it lightens not only the spot on which it falls, hut all around, for light is stronger than darkness and good is I stronger than evil. To be a bearer of . sunshine to dark places is the pleas antest v jrk in the world. Don't be discouraged if you tind it impossible always to pr...

Too Much Politene*!S. I "Now. then, young man," said the 1 angry farmer, "didn't you see that I board when you came trespassing in these woods?" ' "Yes, sir," said the culprit meekly. "Well, what did it say?" "1 duimo. I was too polite to read any more when I saw the first word was "Private.' " Every experience of life writes its lines.

Destroyed the Romance. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

Destroyed the Romance. "Yes," said lie; "life is so lonely." "It is lonely sometimes," she an swered. "Wouldn't it lie sweet to have a little cottage covered with ivy, and honeysuckle, and roses'; ' "Oh, wouldn't it!" "And when a fellow comes home tired from business, to have a nice little wife to meet him at the door with a kiss?" "Y-e-e-s." "And then the summer nights; the windows open, the sunset just giving light enough in the cosy parlor, and —you—I mean a wife at the piano, singing in the gloaming. Tt would be lovely." "I—think—it—would—be—nice." • "And then " At this point a careworn woman came around tlie corner with a pair of howling twins in a perambulator. A dead silence fell upon the nir for a little. Then they talked about (he war. There isn't any music for a good farmer in a rattling waggon. He knows every time he drives such a waggon that he is just shaking the money out of his own pocket.

THE OTHER FELLOW'S JOB. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

THE OTHER FELLOW'S JOB. There's a craze among us mortals that is cruel, hard to name, Wheresoe'er you tind a human you will find the case the same; You may seek among the worst of men or seek among the best, And you'll find that every person is precisely like the rest. Each believes that his real calling is along some other line Than the one at which he's working —take, for instance, yours or mine; From the meanest "me-too" creature to the leader of the mob. There's universal craving for the "other fellow's job." There are millions of positions in the busy world to-day, Ea'ch a drudge to him who holds it, but to him who doesn't, play; Every farmer's broken-hearted that in youth he missed his call, While that same unhappy farmer is the envy of us all. Any task you care to mention seems a vastly better lot Thau the one especial something which you happen to have got. There's but one sure way to smother envy's heartache and her job: Keep too busy at your own co want "the other fellow's...

JAPANESE BRAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

JAPANESE BRAVERY. The remarkable bravery of the Jap anese soldiers was well displayed in an incident which occurred when the Allies lay under fire from the walls of Tientsin. The Japanese held two rows of huts along the south canal. Between these two rows was an open space, commanded by the Chinese fire. A soldier was started with a verbal order across the zone. Within 30 yards he fell dead. Another sol dier instantly dashed out with the message, and he fell likewise. Like clockwork a third soldier ran out, and there was a roar of cheers from the Allies as the brave Japanese made the trip in safety.

THE HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE'S "MOONLIGHT CHARGE." [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

THE HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE'S "MOONLIGHT CHARGE." In 1822 the Household Cavalry— Life Guards and Horse Guards Blue had not been on foreign service for over half a century, "Waterloo" being tne last battle honor inscribed on their colors. The proposition that these "six-foot sword-wielders" should be shipped to Egypt for desert war fare aroused much criticism and some little sarcasm. To the land of the Nile, however, they went, and on All gust 28 were at Kassassin. General Graham sent a verbal order to Gen eral Drurv Lowe, commander of the Cavalry Brigade, to sweep around and attack the enemy's flank. The mes sage arrived late; the men had had a long and weary night march, and were fatigued and hungry when the time came for action. The Royal Horse Artillery first opened lire, to shake the foundation of the Egyptian Infantry. Then Drury Lowe ordered Colonel Ewart (Lieutenant-Colonel Second Life Guards) to lead his men forward. Colonel Ewart's three squadrons made a thundering charge on the ...

EDUCATING PARLIAMENTARIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

EDUCATING PARLIAMENTARIANS. By D.B.W. That Mr. .Mea<l is a persistent man ! is well known to Ministers of the ; Crown, and to this quality ot persist ence is attributable the fact that he was able to introduce no fewer than five members of the Government to ! the irrigation districts in the Goul burn Valley last week, and also to j induce them to visit the scene of the proposed great water storage in the valley of the Upper Goulburn. His own .Minister, .Mr. Hutchinson, was long ago persuaded of the necessity for a supplementary scheme of water supply from the Goulburn, while in the benefits of irrigation culture he has long been a thoroughly believer. Through liim Mr. Mead was able to induce the Premier (Sir Alexander Peacock), the Minister of Education (Mr. T. Livingston), the Minister of Lands (Air. H. Lawson), and the Hon. -Minister (Mr. John Gray) to make a hurried visit to the Upper and Lower Goulburn districts last week, in com pany with the Minister of Water Sup pl...

Coming Into Line. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

Coming Into Line. Two smartly-dressed young men were discussing the present economic situation with u third whose holiday suit, straggling hair, and grimy hands betokened a holiday at some distance from a hairdresser's and a hasty journey home. "Well," observed number one, "the pater says it's not only sensible but it's patriotic to economise just now, so he aud I have given up the two 'B's' and the mater the two 'T's.' " His hearers looked puzzled till he explained that the initial letters indi cated respectively "beer and baccy" and "tea and toast." "Since you put it that way," said number two, "I've dropped the two 'C's'—coffee and cigarettes." 'The third man, evidently feeling out of it, began to explain that he had only just got back from the North of Scotland and hadn't really had time, you know, to think it out, but of course he'd have to come into line, etc. "Don't you worry, old chap," inter posed number one. "You go on just as you are, and everybody'll know that you're eco...

POWER OF WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

POWER OF WILL. Many n man who prides himself on his will-power is failing to use it in the really critical issues of life. He will set a high standard for himself in some important detail of every-day living, such as rigid punctuality, or scrupulous care in his person or dress, or persistent physical exer cise; it takes character and it makes character. But when it comes to moral self-conquest, that same man is ofte?i the veriest weakling. He may know that a certain indulgence is wrong and harmful, yet the idea of summoning against it that iron will of his, on which he rightly prides himself in secular affairs, seems not to occur to him. Will-power is one Df man's richest gifts. What a la mentable waste of wealth it is when >ve do not use this power for spiritual victories!

If the Chickens Are There. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 February 1915

If the Chickens Are There. Sam Vickers, an old South Caro lina negro, had helped himself to some of a white neighbor's chickens. The owner traced the theft to him, however, and brought him to account. "Look here, Sam," he said. "I don't mind the loss of the chickens so much—T would have given you one if you had asked for it—hut it pains me to see an old man like you com mit a sin like that. What are you going to do at the judgment day, when we appear before the Lord, and those chickens are presented as evi dence before you?" "Yo' 'low dem chickens gwine to be •dar, Mar.se Henry?" the old man ask ed, while his coal-black orbs rolled restlessly. "They certainly will," came the firm and impressive reply. "Den Ah gwine say, 'Is dese hyah yo' chickens, .Marse Henry?' an' yo'll say, 'Yas,' an' Ah'll say, 'All right, sail, yo' take 'em!'"

UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS IN THE TRENCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 February 1915

UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS IN THE TRENCHES. The ground over which the Allies are fighting in Flanders just now fair ly oozes water. No sooner is a trench dug than it begins to be flood ed. An English officer back from the front after a month of mud-baths and "Jack Johnsons" gives a significant in stance of esprit in face of deplorable conditions. A company was ordered to occupy a trench in which the water came nearly to their waists. As they splashed down to their posts the ser geant passed along the word: "You are forbidden to smoke, but—you may | sit down!" As my informant said, ["This is the spirit that wins battles!" No man's acts (lie utterly; though his body may resolve into thin air, his good or bad deeds will still be bringing forth fruit after their kind, and influencing future generations for all time to come. It is in this mo mentous and solemn fact that the great peril and responsibility of hu man existence lies. You cannot make a friend of a miser.
