HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914

HAPPINESS. The happiness most people are seek ing is that of doing what they like, for getting that lovo seeks not its own. Lovo can redeem anything and every thing, and never fails. The philoso pher of happiness who realises happi ness as an art and not as an accident, knows that perfect personal joy is the right of every civilised human being. Oliarm, abandonment, and all fantastic beauty expressed in song or danca and passionate expressions of all kinds, lead us upward and not downward, if wo know the philosophy of lovo as well as the philosophy of happiness, ,It is at our peril to-day if wo allow ourselves to become anaemic spiritual slugs instead of rollicking children of tlio infinite.— Mrs Bavelock Ellis in "Tlio Forum,'-'

WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914

WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT. The Creawick Shire Council does not look with a kindly eye upon the Workers' Compensation Act. At its monthly meeting a number of letters were received from various insurance companies soliciting business under the compulsory insurance soliemc. "That is your Liberal Government for you" said Cr Parkin with a sar castic smile. " Well your friends in the Council passed it,'' replied Cr Leishman, amidst general laughter. The councillors went on to discuss the rival merits of insuring under a private company or the Government, and theu a knotty problem cropped up. Cr Parkin enquired whether the council should have to insure a con tractor working under the shire. The chairman (Cr J. T. Yates) and Cr Taylor thought "Yes," but several other councillors disagreed. The point was, however, left undecided, and the council resumed other busi ness, feeling no bettor pleased with the Workers Compensation Act.

OBITUARY HUMOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 April 1914

OBITUARY HUMOURS. The obituary notice column of the daily paper is always full of interest and very often of humour. One of the perennial features of this column is the vanity of those responsible for the notices. Any kind of peg is good enough on which to hang a mantle of supposed respectability, through a connection real or supposed with somebody in a better position than the advertiser. The latest outbreaks I have noticed, however, arc free from this particular kind of snobbishness, but are noticeable enough in their own way. In one a bereaved mother prints no less than six inches of mort uary verse, about a daughter that died some years ago, thus hanging a poetical wreath on her daughter's six year old tomb at a cost of a couple of sovereigns or so. A.8 the verseB are of the usual death column character, it is hard to see who is benefited except the news paper proprietors, and worthy as those gentlemen may be, there seems no adequate reason why the columns of the paper in which ...
