OLD LADY'S SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 March 1915

OLD LADY'S SECRET. An old lady, who managed to re tain an appearance much younger than her years, ■with a bright eye and a smooth, healthful skin, although her age was over seventy, was asked how she contrived to retain her physi cal charms. This was her reply: — "I know how to forget disagreeable things. "1 tried to master the art of saying pleasant things. "1 did not expect too much of my frien's. "I kept my nerves well In hand, and did not allow them to bore other people. "I tried to find congenial any work that came to hand. "I retained the illusions of my youth, and did not believe 'every man a liar' and every woman spiteful. "I did iny best to relieve the. mis ery I came in contact with, and sym pathised with the suffering. "In fact, I tried to do to others as I would be done by, and you see mo in consequence reaping the fruits of happiness and a peaceful old age." _There are many of us who might do worse than begin to try that old lady's code of behavior and see if, after a y...

Made Them Smile. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 March 1915

Made Thorn 3ml!c. The following incident is vouched for by parlies well acquainted with the hoy, now a young professor in one of our large cities. lie was the son of a clergyman, and though only live years old, bright and clever beyond his years. It was at a dinner given by his mother to a few intimate friends. Master W- was allowed his usual place at table, but, becoming unruly, was, by way of punishment, trans ferred to a .side-table, whither nurse had removed his little plate, knife I and fork, by mamma'6 orders. No sooner was he seated in his j high chair again than, bowing his head and clasping his hands on his soiled bib, he lisped with apparent ' reverence and great gravity:-— "O Lord, I thank Thee that Thou lias prepared a table for me in the presence of mine enemies." It was with difficulty that the "grown-ups" kept their smiles from becoming audible.

I don't say there's any harm in a man taking a glass or two, so long as he can stop at that—I take one myself when I feel I want it—but what I do say is—a fellow thai doesn't know where to draw the line is the sort of chap as ought never to touch drink at all. As a matter of fact, since my old woman commenced to use Robur I don't seem to care much for anything else. I just take a cup of tea whenever I want it, and I never have a hcadache or a dry mouth in the morning. Everybody who uses No. I Grade Robur seems to like it—I know I do, and so

Sat On. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 March 1915

The following occurred in a hotel in tin; iinrth. One evening a young Scotch traveller, entering tho com mercial ruoin, where several geucle liieii were writing, sat down beside an old stager ol' the crusty port-wino type. The young man looked new to the road, and not having opened con versation, tho old toper thought liim a likely subject'for u butt. "Well," said lie, "what sort of n house may you travel for? Somo small affair, 1 suppose, for which you will turn over about as much as would pay my washerwoman's bill?" This exceedingly impertinent re mark naturally excited the attention of several of tho writers, who looked up, waiting for his reply. "Man," said the supposed green horn, "yon maun he nil awfully dirty beggar!"

Questions nroso as to how It cumo to assume its presont form, ltow it is composed, etc. Only two of tho well-known politi cians knew anything nbout its Ills lory. It Is to clear away Ignorance on this subject that the following is gh-on. In tho first place, it should he ev nialned Hint the name "Union .Tack" Is more often than not wrongly ap plied. That name really belongs to n miniature union llag, displayed from a start' at tho end of the bow sprit 011 Ills Majesty's ships, and known for many years past as n Jack: whence tho name of "Union .Tack." | which has come to he wrongly an nlleil to tlio larger .ns well as the smaller Tin ion Flag, the correct ih»ip when displayed otherwise than on Ills Majesty's Hhlps.

| WHAT NEUTRALITY MEANS. Why the Naval Brigade was Dis armed In Holland. Will Holland, in spite of any pres sure which may bo brought to bear upon her by Germany, maintain her neutrality In the present crisis? It Is n (tiK'stiim-whlcn is exercising the minds of not a few people at tho pro sent time, anil Holland's decision will undoubtedly have considerable bear ing on the result of the. great struggle. In the meantime, it is not uninterest ing to note some of the rules laid down by international law in regard to neutrality. Tho main principle of tho doctrine of neutrality is that, while other nations are at war, those which ore at peace are able, without molesta tion. to pursue their ordinary business. Neutral countries, however, must show absolute Impartiality in their deiliiH"; with the combatants, while tho latter must scrupulously respect I lie neutral position of countries at peace Germany's great, crime is that she.
