A PARDONABLE ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 30 May 1914

A PARDONABLE ERROR. "Up! Ui>! Up!" cried the crowing cock, "Awake and greet the dawn," And wee birds hopped from nest to rock Anticipating morn. The lowing herd sought out the way That led to the milking shed, For the east affirmed the coining day, The cats flew home to bed. The watch dog curled himself to rest, His round of duty done, On suble wings night sped tho west, O'erwhelmed by promised sun. But the blatant cock was far from right, He reveilled much too soon, The "dawn" was bright Electric Light In the streets of Preston toon. Judith Jahlgv.

MAN, THE CITY-BUILDER It appears to be a primary-impulse for mon to build cities. He needs n shelter, also companionship, ami tliese two fac tors, doubtless, have made him what he is—a city-building animal. Away back, in the dim mists of the ages, he biiilded solidly and well in the land of the Phoroahs, wherj; his monuments endure to this day. In Persia, ChaUlea, Assyria, cities have been raised on the ruins of cities, which in turn had been superimposed on others and others, in one instance, at least, to ten cities dee)), representing an almost unfathom able extent of time. Peru, China, Mexico, the islands of the Pacific, all tell the same tale of the operations of rate after race of temple and house raisers. Nations, as individuals, have a definite lifq»cycle, and pursue it with the unerring instinct of the swallow in making its mud-nest, or the bower-bird in decorating its dancing-grounds. Man must build—he cannot help it. His first and last thoughts are of a home, and when many...
