More than His Money's Worth. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

More than His Money's Worth. Wife (whose husband had just been knighted): Have you heard from the man who offered to trace our pedi gree? Husband: Yea, he . has found out more than enough. Wife: What did you pay him? HuBband: Fifty pounds—to hold his tongue! A Good Send-off. Mr. Newlygilt (to Mrs. N., who is cultivating society): Well, my dear, and how did you get on at the Vere de Vere's? Mrs Newlygilt: Well, they were a little cold and stand-offish at first, I thought, but, oh, so nice when I came away. Dont' try to analyse women; love them for what they are. Don't pick them to pieces as you would a toy, for. you can never put them together again. _ Men and women have nothing in" common, intellectually, unless they're in love. For company, for straight conversation, for business, for sport, a man would rather be with men. I have heard of men who would die for a woman, but never of one who would go without his dinner for her. A married woman says the way to be happy with a husband ...

To Ease Kidney Troubles. When there is organic disease of the kidneys, or when albumen is pre sent in the urine, stimulate the skin by means of baths and packs, and the bowels by the use of an enema. Drugs or herbs should not be used as they irritate the kidneys.

Just Like a Man. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

Just Like a Man. "George," she said, "before we wera married you were always giving me presents. Why don't you ever bring I me anything now?" "My dear," replied George, "did you ever hear of a fisherman giving bait to a fish he had caught?" Then the kettle boiled over. •He who respects his work so high ly and does it so reverently that he cares, little what the world thinks of it, is the man about whom the world comes at last to think a great deal. Nothing is more expensive than penuriousness, nothing more anxious than carelessness, and every duty which is bidden to wait returns witli seven fresh duties at its back. , A tip is diagnosed by a Scottish writer as a small sum of money you give to somebody because you're afraid he will not like not 'being paid for something you haven't asked him to do. While Doubt stands still, Confidence can make a fortune. Good manners include not merely pleasant things «aid and done, but un pleasant ones left undone. Temper, not trouble, makes the mis...

A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

A MAN'S LIFE. A man's life is full of crosses. He comes into the world without his will; and the trip between the two is exceedingly rocky. The rule of the contraries is one of the import ant features of the trip. When he is little the big girls ltiss him; but when he is grown up the little girls kiss him. If he is poor he is a bad manager; if he is rich he is dishonest. If he needs credit he can't get it; if he is prosperous everyone wants to lend him something. If he's in politics it's for what he can get out of it; if he's not interested in politics he is destitute of public spirit. - - If -hp., flnfisn't _Eiva ..tn. charity .lie is a stingy cuss; if he does it is for show. If he is actively religious he is a hypocrite; if lit takes no interest in religion he is a hardened sinner. If he shows affection he is a soft specimen; if he seems to care for 110 one he is oold-bloodecl. If he dies young there was a great future ahead of liim; if he lives to an old age he has missed his cal...

LIVE AND LET LIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

LIVE AND LET LIVE. | At a travelling circus many years ago a clever and pretty trick of horsemanship used to be performed. A horse was led into the ring carry ing on his back what looked like an. old tar barrel, with which he trotted at first slowly round. Presently ha began to quicken his pace, and as he did so, one end of the barrel was pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel fell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on tho horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he cracked. The horse at once broke into a swift gallop, and the man pulled off the great coat, which he threw down, showing that he had on another one underenath. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then a fourth. Hu seemed to have enough coats on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap parently he did not care in the least what beca...

CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

CHARACTER. There . is no instinct implanted in the breast of man so universally ac- [ tive as the love of character. In this respect, the prince on his throne, the judge on his bench, the merchant in his counting-house, are alike. Touch them in whatever pertains to their worldly interest—their business or their wealth—and your interference, though it may indeed he resulted, will yet be borne with comparative indif ference. Tamper with them even in tho matter of life, trifle with their health, expose them to disease, and still you inflict not a deadly wound; hut let the pestiferous breath of slander breathe upon tlieir fair fame, you touch their happiness in its mo3t vital part. To a man of virtuous sensibilities and refined feelings, there is nothing in life that can be placed in competi tion with it. It is the chain that holds him to society, and the .talis man that preserves his rank. Cast a mildew upon this, and you convert his moments of pleasure into sea sons of anxiety and bur...

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. •We often hear of folks being "blue," but have never seen it so nearly ex emplified as at the Repertory Thea tre ball, where several ladies were blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair. This was the first time in Melbourne that ,the new dyed wigs have heen seej in any numbers, and we have not yet quite deci \ed whether we like them or no'. j£ courBe, we tre- accus tomed to the coiffure which is so deep orange in hue that it is prac \ tically majento. We have had a num ■ ber of these of late years, but tho new tones are quite a novelty. I can not say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight biue is certaini; more becoming than the light saxe tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective, but on the whole these colored wigs can not be voted a success. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair, it is but a freak fashion...

FOODS OF THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

FOODS OF THE MIND. We are conscious that the food of the body influences the health of the mind, as when we say of some un suitable or indigestible thing, "it has made me dull of mind, it has made me sad, it has made me irritable, or has in some other way affected my equanimity." But we do not recog nise with like readiness and in the same way the effect of the foods of the mind on the mind and its health; nor is this remarkable, for the body feeds perceptibly, and by one stom ach alone, while the mind feeds im perceptibly toy five stomachs, by every sense, which is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re ceives its ailment, be that good or bad, and from and by which it is re newed and from day to day sustained. These foods of the mind entering the mental organisation, the camera nervosa, largely, if not altogether, mould that'organisation into" set form,, according to its- Quality for moulding.

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution ill the volume o£ the human stream that sets towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On ;>bbath alter Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" be out of date, and brevity's the aim 0£ many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As when the Reverend John Macdutf preached sermons sad and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir tor Sunday's boating song? , When joys of Sydney Harbor to the Sydney people call, The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. j It may bo right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus will not seek To justify the way they spend their holiday per week. ..or yet can Peter well condemn the t pleasant things they do, For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does 'em too.

POTATO-DIGGING RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 28 May 1914

POTATO-DIGGING RECORD. A potato-digging record for Trafalgar district, and probably fur the Stato, was established by W. Powie, a resident of the Mob Swamp district. Powie is 22 yoars of age, and accepted a wager for £5 that he was unable to dig and bag 60 bags of/potatoes in a day of 10 hours. Starling at 7 u.m.. by dinner time Powie had finished 35 bags, or an average of one bag in every 8J- iniuntes. At the end of 8 hours 10 minutes, he had established a record of 6-1 bags, and had won his wager. The performance was put up in Mr. J. Duggan'a paddock, and the variety of potatoes was Oavmen, averaging' about 12 tons to the acre.
