WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. .Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the Bame thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many o£ the things which worry us most are-trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ol life b...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you ' hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose y...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 17 April 1914

A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in ^America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will be a complete tewn. The horse that tries to enter, says tbe "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, [ which is named Speedway, ail indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade.
