AGRICULTURAL LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 April 1914
AGRIOULTURAL LABOR. IN making a stand on what has come to be known as the black chaff incio dent, the farmers of the Wagga district of 'ow South Wales are serving the mon on thl land all over Australia. The term " black chaff" is certainly a misnomer, and a protest must be entered against its further use. If any particular name in requirad it would be better to refer to the produce in dispute as " white chaff," for it has been made under conditions of freedom of contract betwoen employers and employed which tell for purioy of in. dustrial lifo all round, But no a matter of fact it is just ordinary ohaff, in no way to be distinguishod from any other ohaff, and all abtempto to so distinguish it should bo resisted to the last ditch, The trouble in connection with the incident was brought about by the determination of that autooratic body known as the Australian Workers' Union to leave the farmer no voice in the determination of tho remuneration of thoos who help him, Under the speoious...

Spoiling the Fun. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 April 1914
Spoiling the Fun, It was a sweet, sad play, and there was hardly a dry handkerchief in the house. But one man in the pit Irrita ted his neighbors excessively by re fusing to take the performance in the proper spirit, Instead of weeping, he laughed, While others were mopping their eyes and endeavoring to stifle "I d-don't know what brought y-you h-here," she sobbed, with streaming eyes, and pressingher hr hand against her aching heart; "but if y-you don't like the p-play, you mligh 1-let other p-people enjoy it!" Plenty of young men who start out Into the world never get any farther than the city,

"'A gentleman is dying there," she said, "lie is extremely concerned about tile state of his soul and anx lolls to se you cofore he dies." The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cab, and a short drive round the cornoer brought them to a manlsion, The lady, who seemed to be extremely agitated, urged the vicar to hurry, lie sprailg out of the cab, rang the bell, and a butler appeared, "Does r,. - liveo here?"

DO WE LIVE LONGER? [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 April 1914
DO WE LIVE LONGER? It is generally maintained that we live longer than the ancients did. But researches among the tombs of Ro man times in Italy rind Spain are far from proving this, There was-aertatinly a larger infant mortality, but the expectation of life between fifty and sixty in ancient Rome was equal to our own, and after sixty the Romans had the advantage, Soldiers, in particular, lived to an extreme old age, in some cases reach. ing 100 years, The longevity of the Romans was due to a high infant mortality. Only the fit survive' By taking great care of the young we have reduced thil mortality, 'but at the same time we have not added to the average length of life, This is not difficult to under stand, for if the weakly and the deli.' cate survive childhood, they do not as a rule live to old age, A high rate of infant mortality means, in fact, a low death-rate after sixty, and vice-versa. The ancient Roman had a less chance of livingto twenty, but if he survived he had a great...
