A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

A MAN'S LIFE.. A man's life is full of crosses. He comes into the world without his will; and the trip between the two is exceedingly rocky. The rule of the contraries is one of the import ant features of the trip. When he is little the big girls kiss him; but when he is grown, up the little girls kiss him. If he is poor he is a bad manager; if he is rich he is dishonest If he needs credit he can't get it; if he is prosperous everyone wants to lend him something. If he's in politics it's for what he can get out of it; if he's not interested in politics he is destitute of public spirit. If he doesn't give to charity he is a stingy cuss; if he does it is for show. If he is actively religious he is a hypocrite; if he takes no interest in religion he is a hardened sinner. If he shows affection he is a soft specimen; if he seems to care for no one he is cold-blooded. If he dies young there was a great future ahead of him; if he lives to an old age lie has missed his calling.

Sitting down and whining never helps J a bit; • Best way to get there is by keeping i up your grit. Don't give up hoping when the ship goes down; Grab a spar or something—just re fuse to drown. Don't think you're dying just because you're hit, Smile in face of danger and hang to your grit. Folks die too easy—they sort of fade away; Make a little error, and give up in dismay. ■ Kind of man that's needed is the man of ready wit, ~'v To laugh at pain and trouble and keep .his grit.

THINK OF THIS. . ' The best we can do is the least that should be expected of us. It is better to know too little than to know a lot that isn't true. .ulaking both ends meet is not quite enough; they should lap over a bit. Take time to think. Do not move aimlessly around like a fly with its head off. If you know that you are right, it does not matter whether anybody else knows it or not. Life is like a penny-in-the-slot ma chine. If we put nothing into it, most assuredly we will get nothing out of it.
