The Wealthiest of Nations. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 16 April 1898
The Wealthiest of Nations. The wealth of the 'American people to day surpasses' that of any other nation, past or present. This is what tlie Americans would cali ' a tall order,' but the statement is capable of proof, and it will .he a wholesome corrective to our insular nur.se nride to consider the matter. You must remember, too, that all has been, accomplished in a century— a small community of squat ters and farmere has in less than a hundred years become one of the great est Of not the greatest) nations the world has ever seen. The development of the intellectual and industrial power of the States lias in the last seventy years beenstupen dons, bill our immediate concern is 'not with that, but . with the marvellous growth in the weiijth of the Republic. The ceuisus taken in 1S20 showed the wealth of the Stales as $1,900,000,000, or an average of .'f20.'» for each head of the population.

Not Even if it Cost Twenty Shillings. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 16 April 1898
Hot Even if it Cost Twenty Shillings. A notable percentage— about one tliird. 1 think. — of the power of a Etcam engine is ufcil up iu over-coming the frictinn of its own parts. Hence inventors nrc constantly testing devices to reduce friction. Yet they din never oveicoroe it ; and the resistance created by it represents power (and hence cxpfinEC £lso) absiiuti.lv lust.

Straightforwardness. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 16 April 1898
Straightforwardness. [By Ladt Cook, sjkk Tennesee 0. Claflik I When an ancient wns aslietf, ' Of what use is philosophy ?' he replied, ' It tinclii'8 man liow to die.' He might Lave addfd, and also how to live. The eailiest and noblest conceptions that ever existed concern ing life and its duties we owe to liii' Stoics. These have never bpe.n surpassed, so fiat niopt of our best moral ideas t-.-,-day are the fruits of lliur philosophy, Pythagoras, it is said, divided virtue into two parts —to seek truth and to do good ; hut the Sioics were more actire with the former than with the latter. It is our moral duty to follow truth, regardle-ss of consequence., wheresoever it loads. Truthfulness is the highest test of character, and when wij.'add the doing of good to the seeking after K, we attain the greatest moral exo Hence. We are then veracious in thought and deed, ready to follow evidence '? even to the most unwelcome conclusions,' and to do right whatever may happen. Savages an* norm...
