Essay on Scotland [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 4 July 1914
S Essay on Scotland Scotland is a braw wee land, or the north of England. It has water nearly all round it, and iWhiskey over a large portion of it. The population is about 4f millions, including Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language of its. own, and if one can pronounce it coherently, it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses. considerable wealth, but very little of it finds its way out: of the country. Gold has at times been discovered in certain districts ae well as in the pockets of certain natives, but in both cases it has been found difficult to work, The best known exports of Scotland are Harry Lander and Scotch whiskey, though sufficient of the latter is re teined in the country to satisfy the demands of home consumption. The national dress of Scotland is the kilt, which is a kind of short petticoat. In pattern it resembles a chessboard, though in cold weather the wearer finds it more like a drarght board, , It is believed to have been originally invented beca...

All her fury and indignation were gradu ally changing into sternness, She was glad she had' resented Stamen's cruelty, that he knew she was vin diotlve and defiant; but in the midst of this rebellion she suddenly realised the helplessness of her position, and being a creature of impulse, woudered if God had forsaken her, and felt a fear of the great Being she had su long forgotten. Every emotion was stirred and sha ken. It is in thrse moments of moral abandonment and ruin He draws the rebel back to loyalty and submission. Feeling out off from all human com fort, aid, or pity, Lenoro knelt down and prayed for divine grace. The action was involuntary-the cry of supplication saved her reason, She was in that hlighly-wrought frame of mnid, which will give o'?tith all the ardour and passion of martyrdonm. Any desire for pardon will rendeor the mind pliant and subm:s...
