FAILURES DUE TO LAZINEO&. The two main causes of failure in ilfe," &Mid an observant business man. "so fa r as I have studied the ques tion, f .re Incompetence and laziness. "T& e first is, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the sufferer •can T.'O held responsible. If a man b* lacld.ng in natural Judgment and j abifl ty then he must g> under, al though even here honesty, persever an«3 and industry would do much to at© ie for the lack of natural gifts.

Woods' Great Peppermint Cure, For Coughs and Colds, neyer fails, 1 /6 As a result of enquiries by the Agent-General it was ascertained that the schedule of rates observed in Victoria for the carriage of small parcels of dairy farm produce through the post varied from that used by the Great Western Rail way Company, in England. The Victorian rates were less for short distances, and more for long dis tances. Dr. Cameron suggested that a list of producers willing to supply produce through the post to the public should be published in the "Tourists' Guide," so that the scheme could be brought under uotice. » If bright, blue eyes and rosy lips Dark shadows hide behind, And all the pleasures that one sips No longer, please the mind.

LISMORE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 May 1914

LISMORE. Last month's rains, totalling 2% inches, have been ample for pre sent agricultural requirements, and farmers are very pleased with their present prospects. The rain fell in plenty of time to enable them to get in their wheat, and it came down so slowly that the seed-beds were not damaged in any way. In most cases the ground had been well worked, and farmers were waiting for. the rain before sowing. Although the rain met farmers' needs very nicely, pastoralists state that it came too late to ensure even a decent merino lambing. In most cases serious losses occurred among the ewes, and on burnt country particularly owners were obliged to destroy the lambs in order to save the mothers. The rain has given the grass a good start, and the older of the dry sheep will quickly recover from the effects of the dry spell There may, however, be seem tender wool on the hoggets.

FOOTBALL. ELLERSLIE V. MORTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 May 1914

FOOTBALL BI/IiBRSM® V. MORTIvAKE. The Mortlake footballers jour neyed to IJllerslie on Saturday to engage in a friendly match with the local team. The game, which was not as one-sided as the scores indicate, was played in a splendid spirit throughout. Hard knocks were given and taken on both sides without that element of roughness which does a great deal to mar the present day football creepiug in. Both sides had a number of young players in the field and they dis played possibilities of no mean order. The first quarter opened with H. Stewart getting first kick and send ing the leather well into the Eller slie goal, where Worrall was awarded a free but Smith Alford secured aud by a fine run around the township wing quickly changed the scene of operations. From his kick Ahearn marked and by a quick pass to R. Stewart Mortlake were again attacking but the ball was forced out of bounds.

VARIETIES. I Things move along so rapidly now I adays that people who say, "It can't possibly be done," are continually be ing interrupted by somebody doin." it. Among the Hottentots, if a widow marries again, she is obliged to cnt off the joint of a finger for every hus band she marries after the first; this she presents to her new husband on her wedding-day, beginning at one o» the little fingers first. It is good discipline to do anything regularly, whatever it may be. irregu larity is as great *. tiiiet' of time as unpunctuality. Train yourself to have a time for everything and to do every thing at its time, and your day wiiJ hold half as much again. The noisy waves are failures, but the great silent tide is a success.

' _ '"It is no easy thing," remarked e JWntal authority, "to distinguish h*> fcween true courage and qualities Which may take its place, such a» ■tolidily, lack of imagination, and in •ensibility. "I ouce listened to a man who, aa a traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and who i boasted of the dangerous situations : which he had faced whilj his conipau ■ ions had run away.

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MAY 6. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 May 1914

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MAY 6. Published Wednesday and Saturday Australia has conditions which never were possessed before by any democracy of which history tells us anything. Here is an entire con tinent, the "fifth quarter" of the globe, in the possession of a homo geneous white race. Its boundary is the inviolate sea. Its climate and natural resources make it, pro ductively and industrially, entirely self-dependent,, if its people wish to be. All Australians have to do is to enter into.the intelligent use of the magnificent estate at their ser vice. These are unique conditions. But countries do not' flourish on their natural advantages only. Some of the territories most favored in climate compare, productively and industrially, very indifferently with others less naturally endowed. Italy and Spain do not compare, for development with England and Denmark. The democracy which is to last must be an "educated democracj^." Many other kinds have been tried, and all have failed.

RABBITS IN GRAVEL PITS The Hampden Shire Council yesterday received a letter from J. Baker, Noo rat, drawing attention to the;dreadful state of the Noorat gravel-pit with rabbits and burrows, on t'ner'Terang to Darlington road. He had also to com- j plain about a quarry which the Coun- : cil's men made on the same road about thirty chains to t'he north of. the gravel- i pi* and which was also a home for rab- | bits. Or. Oman said he met the rabbit in- ■ spector recently at Li&more,- and he had been complaining that the gravel pits throughout the Shire were a harbor for rabbits. He (Cr. Oman), thought that as the Council opened the gratfel pits, it Should see "that they were. kept free from rabbits. It was not fair to ask tho landowners to do this. Cr. H. A. Currie said exactly the same thing occurred at Derrinallum. The gravel pits near Mount' Elephant were a big harbour for rabbits, and there had been complaints from the in spector about them. It would be a big contract for...
