STORIES TOLD Round the Camp Fire A Mad Mistake [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 August 1892

STORIES TOLD FOB a man Irving in the year 1892 of the Christian era he certainly held strange notions-the oddest mixture of the Gospels and Epistles; of the precepts of the Sermon on the Mount and of the practical part of the teachings of St. Paul. He held that if a man would not work, neither should he cat; and, on the other hand, that if a man should work, neither ehonld he starve. Upon this principle he had parcelled out the best part of a fine estate into farms of ten acres or so, one of which he worked on every day and all day himself; while the rest he allotted to labour ers on whom he kept a mild but wakeful eye. If he found one of them incorrigibly lazy, he would say with a gentle firmness, "Friend, yon are not paying the rent agreed upon work. As long aB yon would work the land, it was yours; you have ceased to work it, and it reverts to me. Go in peace!" Where upon the man, finding this decision irreversi ble, would as often as not use foul and strong language, knowing tha...
