LOVE OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

LOVE OF LITIGATION. A mania for going to law seems to possess no Inconsiderable portion of our population. The cause lists of our courts lengthen with every term, and judges regard with dismay the frightful accumulation of cases. Cynical people insist that the im mense numbvi1 of young lawyers turned loose upon the community evory year has something to do with the tremendous impulse that has been g'ven to litigation within the last few years. Immoral glaziers out of em ploy have been known to incite Idle boys to break the windows of exem-. plary citizens, with a view of creating a demand for the services of a "panes taking" class, and it is asserted, libel lously, perhaps, that people who live in glass houses are egged on to throw stones at each other by newly-fledged counsellors, who hope to profit by the damage. However this may be, it is quite certain that tl . proportion of litigants to the population at large is much greater now than it was ten years ago. To be sure, the demand...

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions wore merely the result, of accident. An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it. the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. - .A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectaclcs. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching. ]Je drew figures upon the glass with" varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When ho removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house.

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. " Many a- woman who would not think- of lightly breaking a promise made.to a grown-up person is utterly - careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises is a matter in whicli she can please herself, and that her children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. 1 " A mother who acts thus does lier children grievous harm. She forgets, that the sense of justice is Btrong in, quite a little child, and that it is nat-' ural and reasonable that he should expect his parents to he as good as; their -word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience." Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her children's confidence, which, is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. \Vhen boys and girls learn to doubt': their parents' trut...

BACHELORS' EXCUSES. At a -wedding breakfast the bache lors were called upon to give their reasons for remaining so. The following were among them- * "I am like the frog in the fable, who. though, he loved the water, would not jump into tlie well because he could not jump out again." "I am too selfish, and honest enough to admit it." "I prefer,-on the one hand, liberty, refreshing sleep, the opera, midnight suppers, quiet seclusion, dreams, ci gars, a bank account, and club to-on the other hand-disturbed rest; cold meat, baby linen, soothing syrup, rock ing-liorses, bread pudding, and* empty pockets." / "I have a twin brother, and we have never had a secret from one another. He is married." A promising young merchant re cently presented his better half with a handsome piano lamp. He was much flattered when she told him to give it his name, until he asked her reasons for so peculiar a proceeding. "Well," said she, "you know, dear, it has a good deal of brass about it; it is handsome t...

THE TACTFUL WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

THE TACTFUL WOMAN. . A woman of tact is the one who feels that the story, told to hurt your feel ings is essentially bad forrr, and incon siderate of the feelings "of other. A woman of tact is the woman who is courteous to old people, who laughs with the young, and who makes her self agreeable to all women in all con ditions of life.

A woman of tact is one who is cour teous under all circumstances and in every condition in which she may be placed. . 'A woman of tact is one whose love for humanity is second only iu her life's devotion, and whose watch word is unselfishness.

HELPFUL WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

HELPFUL WIVES. It is not always the wife who stands behind her husband's counter, or shares his office or labors with him, shoulder, to shoulder, who is the great est help to a man. Many women, dis tinctly feminine, and to all appearan- , ces hopelessly unbusinesslike, are first . aids-to the busy husband, and they seldom or never enter the shops, offices, or factories over .which their husbands rule. A woman blessed with the faculty of saj'tog or doing the .right-thing at the right minute is bound to bp a help to her husband. The woman who can make herself indispensable Co '?..'..r hus band as his social mentor ai>3 co entertainer has, many pleasures which . the less tactful sisters miss. Everyone recognises as a bore the woman who is for ever quoting the clever sayings of her husband, and dwelling at length upon bis good points, his success in business, etc.; but the wife who knows when to drop a hint that counts is the real help meet.

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I love old mothers-mothers with while hair, And kindly eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in their quiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbath afternoons; A knowledge in their d<jep unfaltering eyes That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, While all the echoes of forgotten . songs Seem joined to lend a sweetness to .their speech. Old mothers!-as they pass with slow-timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to ? youth's strentgh; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden walks, old roses, and old loves.

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. Many interesting incidents relative to the siege of Ladysmitli are record ed in "Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by tlie late Melton Prior: - "The enemy succeeded in placing thirty-two guns on the heights ,-hove the town, and kept up such ;u; inees sant fire that the troops and civilians were soon engaged in digging bomb proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boor guns by their sound, and gave them amusing names. Three of the largo ones they called 'Long Tom,' 'Pulling Hilly,' and 'Weary Willie.' Then there was 'Silent. Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first, warning we got that it had been fired. "In spilt; of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew accustomed to the shelling. One day the Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no one was hit, and (hey wont on playing. The Poors were so interested appar ently that the...

Every man, wo man and child was sent to search for Miss Dan vers, and The O'Doyle -aid ed, in the hunt, but there was no 6ign of the missing girl. The O'Doyle had the Irishman's irascible temper, and scolded everyone who came near him. Dearma, however, managed to a cer tain extent to .calm him. "Sheila Is the last girl in the world," sl;e said, "to fall into the river, or sink into a bog, and who on earth would ate 1 her, daddy,' for she left her purge with me before she went out, and Las, I know, not a half penny on her person-nor any ormna ments either." - "I'...
