There he was a contractor, and all but one of his large family was born in that locality.

BRIGHT AND GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 November 1914
BRIGHT AND GLADSTONE. It is not always an easy matter for a man of strong convictions and na tive force of character to see and re spect another's point of view. Wil liam E. Gladstone and John Bright were two of the strongest men that the last century produced, yet an an ecdote from "The Life and Work, of Frank. Holl," by Mr. A. M. Reynolds, shows that these great men were quite unable—on one • occasion, at least—to see more than one side of a question. Soon after the break between Bright and Gladstone that followed a difference of opinion concerning the Government's foreign policy, the ar tist Holl was engaged to paint the portrait of Mr. Bright. He inciden tally mentioned that he was about to paint a portrait of Mr. Gladstone also. "It must be a very painful thing for you, Mr. Bright," he hazarded, "that after all these years you should have found cause to sever your friendly relations .with Mr. Gladstone." "Indeed it is," replied Bright, with a sigh. "To think that after we have ...

German Treatment of Prisoners. Captain J. J. Tulloch, "Tymeric," in the course of liis report as to the sinking of his ship iby the "Emden," said: "The Chinese on board did the &lt;washing. and had plenty to do. The men's 'whites' seemed pretty dirty.. We were given. 'Sunlight' Soap to wash with—evidently some of the stuff they captured from one of the boats sunk in the Bay of Bengal." The giving of "Sunlight" soap to prisoners is good treatment. The Germans could not give them a bet ter soap for the purpose. "Answer me, Lily," he said in a moment of passion, "I can bear the suspense no longer." "Answer him, Lily," echoed her father, who was in the hall, thinking of the coal and gas bills, "I can't bear the expense much longer."

Taking a Chance, Too. Being told he would have to be op erated on, the man demurred, saying he couldn't afford it. "You're insured, aren't you?" asked the doctor. "Yes," was the reply; "but I won't get that money unless 1 die." "Neither will I," said the doctor. "So we're iboth taking chances." A woman does not resent selfish or even brutal treatment from the man she loves as she resents cold or slight ing words. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high.

NEVER SAY DIE! [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 November 1914
NEVER SAY DIE! When the outlook is blackest and troubles are nigh, And everything seems going wrong, You must square up your shoulders and never say die! Keep manfully struggling along. There's no lane so long but a turn ing is near, If only to find it you'll try; Keep a stout heart, a brave heart, a conscience that's clear. And never, no, never, say die! The calmest of weather oft follows the rough, So never give way to despair; 'Tis the man who is steadfast can stand a rebuff, Who quickest to sunshine will fare.. There's no use in whining; keep steady and true When darkness all round you descry; If you want to win thro' to the sheen and the blue, You must never, no, never, say die! If worries should come—and you're sure to have some!— You must ibravely them try to sur mount; Right valiantly face them whenever they come; On the goddess of chance never count. Give a hand to your fellows who're caught in the storm, And never your manhood belie; In your works and your actions, "whate'...

THE "DAY OF REST" AND EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 November 1914
THE "DAY OF REST" AND EFFICIENCY, The refreshing influence of the weekly "day of rest" on a person sub jected to the strenuous routine of a •busy. life is a feature -which he him self can" duly appreciate in the effects on his "feelings" and "spirits." The efficiency of the working-man, the length of the working day, the inter jection of pauses for rest in the sche dule of latior for persons of different ages and stations in life—questions of this sort are constantly arising for solution on a scientific ibasis. Not only in the field of manual labor, tout also in the case of the school child, the office-boy, the factory-girl, the banker and the merchant, efficiency is the keynote of the times. In view of this (says "The Jour nal of the American Medical Associ ation") it is of more than passing in terest to know that Dr. Martin and some of his associates in the Labora tory of Physiology at the Harvard Medical School, have been making careful study of the whole question of fatigue and ...

CHAPTER VIII. After Six Years. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 November 1914
CHAPTER VIII. After Six Years. "It is really very good to be home again," said Lady Owen, as she and Sydney sat over a small, cheerful fire in the great double drawing-room on the night of their arrival from Rome. "Yes, indeed," answered Sydney, stroking the black cat that, with- the calm, superior assurance thatVis the I special prerogative of cats, bad jump ed on her knee. ''After six years of hotels and furnished houses belong ing to other people, nice as they have been, it is lovely to foe in a real home again. Somehow our very houses seem more adapted to looking and feeling 'homey' than those in any other country in the world. I suppose it is our cheerful coal fires." "To a certain extent, of course, it is," said Lady Owen; "but that would not account for it in the sum mer. No, I think it is some special quality in Englishwomen that makes them essentially 'home-makers.' I see Martha has remembered my pecu liarity for liking every corner filled with flowers when I have been away...
