The Proper Time to Rise. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
The Proper Time to Rise. The proper time to rise-if we could only make up our minds to it-is when steep properly ends. Dozing is not admissible from any reasonable or health point of view. '-The brain falls into the state we call -sleep, and the other -organs' of -the body - follow it. - True - sleep is -the.aggregate of sleeps. I.-n :.other words, sleep, which must-be a na tural function, is , a, state .which consists in the. sleeping.or rest "of all the: several . parts,, of the or ganism. Sometimes one, and at other' times . another, part of the body as a whole may Ihe fitigued, and so-the 'last to awake, or the most- exhausted and therefore 'the most difficult-to apouse. - Discour -age that drowsy feeling. The secret of good ,sleep is the physiological conditions of rest being established so to work and .weary ..the, several parts of the organism as to give them proportionately equal need of rest at the same moment. The cerebrum, or mind organ, the sense organs, the muscular sys...
The Buffaloes have a Social Evening. CROWN LODGE (PRAHRAN) AS HOSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
The Buffaloes have a Social Evening. CROWN LODGE (PRAHRAN) AS HOSTS. To say that one had a night among the Buffaloes is not to infer that one had been into the wilds of the coutn try where such animals have their homes. Far from it. When we speak of Buffaloes in this article, referende is merely made to societies of. men which liave their origination (so- it is saia, and we don't doubt :it) from generations back.- And a -harmless and excellent lot of inen they. appear to be, too, if one: takes pattern from those constituting the Crown Lodge of Buffaloes, Prahran, and other simi lar lodges. They are evidently out to do practical good to their felloi nien in general and their fellowselvesyin particular. -The latter conclusion,' naturally, is the more correct ano explicit. Well, on Saturday evening the Crown Lodge of Biifaloes, Prah ran, gave a social evening at Ward's Albion Hotel, in the upstair lodgd room. There was a large attendance, including representatives from sister lodges an...

"But"-and he smiled his wonted smile-"I have never felt miore inclihed to kiss the rod than 3I do now." Mrs. B3f.-. sad to say, did not see the point, and, so -the gossips have it, .told her husband that his Ex cellency had insulted her.

Prahran Brotherhood [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Prahran Brotherhood. At the Prahran Brotherhood, Recha bite Hall, on Sunday afternoon, Pro fessor Holdsworth spoke on the sub ject of "Was the Reformation a Step Forward?" In his opinion it was, for it was a movement which gave men the right of individual judgment. Such men as Luther and Knox in translating the Bible into their own languages did a mighty service in the uplift of man. Several brothers spoke at the end of the address. Mr. Marks sang "The Holy City" ex tremely well, and the orchestra made the meeting go well as usual. A good number was present, and the Brotherhood are wanting men and women to come and help to progress this movement in Prahran, which in fluence can only be one for the bene fit of all in this city. Mr. Roweliffe, 418 Toorak-road, Toorak, would be pleased to hear of anyone who wo'ild be willing to augment our orchestra. Subject for Sunday next: "The Art of Living," by Mr. Heath.
Sweet Lavender. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 27 June 1914
Sweet Lavender. The piano fund of the Holy Advent Church, Malvern, should benefit very materially by the successful perform ance of Sir A. W. Pinero's domestic three-act drama, "Sweet Lavender," which was given in the Parish Hall on Tuesday evening. The building was crowded with a very apprecia tive audience, The cast was particularly well chosen, every one taking part being allotted a character which suited them admirably. The scene opened in the chambers of Mr Phenyl and Mr Hale, at Brain Court Temple, when Master Geoff. Barrett, as Bulger, a hairdresser, related to Miss Florence White, as Ruth Holt, a housekeeper, his somewhat astonishing capabili ties as a tonsorial artist. This dia logue was brought to a conclusion by the appearance of Mr. A. McE. Mar shall (as Clement Hale, the adopted son of Mr. Wedderburn), and Mr. Stan. Cohen (Dick Phenyl, a barris ter). Dick Phenyl bore traces, much to Clement Hale's disgust, of a party which lie had attended the previous evening. The arri...
