In Coral Grovel. He sailed away in his gallant ship lace sail was set, the breese was free ; 'smile was on my loeed one's lip, Lonely my heart, 'twas Fate's decree that I no more my love should see. O cruel sea I tell me, oh, tell, Do sirens on thy bosom dwell, With voices sweet to lre brave men To swift destruction, death, and pain, On rock-boknd coast and trackless main?

WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 27 April 1889
WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERB' INK. Don't expect an advertisement to boean fruit in one night. Bread is the staff of human life, and advertising is the staff of business. You can't eat enough in a week to last a year, and you can't advertise on that plan, either. A thing worth doing is worth doing well. A thing worth nulvertising is worth adlvertising well. The enterprising advertiser proves that he undeorstands how to buy, beeause in ad. vertising he knows how to sell. If you can amuse curiosity by an adver tisement, it is a point gained. The fair sex don't hold all the curiosity in the world. People who advertise once only in three months forget that most folks cannot re member anything longer than three days. Quitting advertising in dull times is like tearing out a dam because water is low. Either plan will prevent good times from coming. A constant dropping will wear a rock. Keep dropping your advertisements on the public, and they will soon melt under it like rock...
