LOOK PLEASANT, PLEASE! [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
LOOK PLEASANT, PLEASE! Cheer up. The world is taking your photograph. Look pleasant. Of course, you have your troubles; troubles you cannot tell the policeman. A whole lot of things bother you, of course. Business worries or domestic sorrows, it may be, or what not. You find life a rugged road whose stones hurt your' feet. Nevertheless, cheer up. - What right have you to carry a pic ture of your woe-begone face and fu nereal ways about among your fellows, who have troubles of their own? If you.must whine or sulk or scowl, take a train and go right away into the country. Cheer up. Your ills are largely inr aginary, Why, man alive, in a ter minute walk you may see a score c people worse off than you. And here you are digging your own grave and playing pall-bearer into the bargain. Man alive, you must do your . work. Smile, even though it be through your tears, which will speedily dry,
WHEN RESIGNING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
WHEN RESIGNING. A man who had been pouring out his grievances before the genial As sistant Postmaster-General of the Uni ted States, received some very excel lent advice. "Going to resign! Think it over Have you seen my set of rules for use in resigning? I made them, and hung !chem up framed, years ago, while I was in the newspaper business. Here they are": Rule 1.--After receiving the last straw, do nothing for two - hours. Above all, write nothing. Rule 2.-At the expiration of two hours, write your resignation, and make it as hot as possible. Scorch the scoundrel. Rule 3.-Then go home. Rule 4.-The next morning, direct. ]y you have got up, carefuilly read over your letter of resignation, and tear it up. Rule 5.-Go to work at the usual hour. The Assistant Postmaster-General added: "Take a copy of these, and you will find them necessary to any man twho wants to rise, and who also is obliged to resign frequently."
THE LARGEST FLOATING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
THE LARGEST FLOATING DOCK. The largest floating dry dock ever constructed for any country has just been completed for the United States, and is now in mid-ocean, being towed from Sparrow's Point, near Baltimore, to the Philippines, roughly, a distance of 10,000 miles. It is being taken by way of the Suez Canal, and the voyage is expected to occupy five months. This dock is a huge structure 500ft. long and 132ft. wide, and the side walls are 42ft. high. -It contains 11,000 tons of steel, and has 2,000,000 rivets. while 130 tons of red lead and linseed oil have been used in painting it. The contract- required that it should.have power to lift a 16,000-ton battleship: but this capacity has been far exceed ed, and it is said to be capable of lifting 20,000 tons. It is to be anchor ed at the new American naval station site in the Far East, and be ready. at. all times to be towed to any point where its services may be needed.

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often n onder why their homes do not lookli as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not have half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better at ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plaits and shrubs that require little work and that when once started will bloom every season fora long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, phlox and asters-my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to the altar of the little church, and, in fact, it seems as if they are'never out of place. There is on class of people who can have as good a time ...
NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
NEWSPAPER - KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. Alfred Harmswo-th (now Lord Northcliffe), who first devised per sonal journalism in tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, the most influential private public man in the three King doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has - arrived he can sit down serenely and lortune comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is no harder worked man in England than Lord Northcliffe. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, he is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in London and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in the many offices which he commands have had their break fast he calls them up on the telephone to discuss with them what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the most stimulating man I know," one of his young lions told me recently. Never a da...
Grown-Up Children. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
- Grown-Up Children. A railway guard related an amusing little incident the other day. "At an out-of-the-way little station in the North," he said, "a party of working men wished to book to a town in the Midlands. Unfortunately, I the booking clerk had only a limited number of tickets for that journey at his disposal. +'Eventually he got out of his diffi culty by dividing the'pieces of paste board and issuing children's tickets to the party, at the same time explaining to me how matters stood. "'They've paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, 'so you must see 'em through.' ý4'I had almost forgotten the matter, when a ticket-examiner at B--- came to me and remarked, with a sorrowful shake of the head: "'This under-age dodge is 'getting too warm!' "'What's the matter?' I asked. "'Matter?' he echoed, disgustedly. 'Why, here's a whole carriage full o'. children wdt plays cards, drinks whis ky, and wears whiskers!'" A New Zealand man has had the same overcoat for thlrty-our years. B...
KINGLY COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
KINGLY COURAGE. In Sweden a remarkable story is told of King Oscar's courage and resolu tlon. - The narrative recounts that a sol dier, a man of immense stature, while lying under sentence of death secured a long knife, and defied anyone to en ter his cell. On hearing of the circumstance the King drove at once to the prison, and, disregarding the warnings of the ofWi cvals, entered the man's cell alone and unarmed, locked the door behind him. *and then reasoned with the convict. It would have been a remarkable in terview, even if the King had taken a pardon to the convict. .But so far from this, he actually explained to the condemned man why he had decided to reject any appeal for mercy; yet he so worked on the man's feelings that when, with a farewe.i handshake. the King left him, he was totally sub dued, and ready to meet his fate the next.morning like a soldier.

Forestalled Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
Forestalled Criticism. Murphy was apsistant cook on board a "trooper" bound for India The first morning he forgot to wash the boiler out after breakfast, consequent ly there were tea-leaves on the sur face of the soup when dinner was served. To clear himself of the blame he went to the respective messes and said: "If ye foind any tay-leaves in the soup you'll know it's mint."

Took the Advice. The head of a large business house bought a number of those "Do it now" signs and hung them up around his offices. They were effective be yond expectation, and yet it can hard ly be said that they worked well. When, after the first few days, the tusiness man counted up the results, he found that the cashier had skipped off with £5000, the head bookkeeper had eloped with the typist, three clerks had asked for a rise in salary, and the office boy had set out to be come a highwayman.
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 7 April 1914
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected of little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, for it is so-human in all of us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. You are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are, often disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little bribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A,very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. All chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than grown persons. And the present of a pet puppy or a bird will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their rights, ...
