THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY Respectability to-day is the chief concern of the human race, and mar riage is the matrix of respectabilTY. Respectability is an attc- ,pt to reduce all life to a simple conventional for mula. It merges the contracts c: life. It is an antidote to romance, '0c It limits one's activities in near every line of hu;u:n'. endr-e vor. It requires us to read certai, books, to see certain plays, to d&ss after the prevailing fashion, to a',' certain topics of conversation. It forces upon us engraved cards and frock coats, the novels of Williaa Dean Howells and the portraits 0" Sargent. It turns our minds from the important things of life to the creas-e in our trousers and the wings of Cur collars. It focuses the brains of the nation on unimportant details of philology. It limits a man to one wife. and raises his barber to a dizY" pinnacle of importance. Should te barbers go on strike to-n.orrow. in a week's time we should lose mutc of our respectability our...

The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed iMrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol ogetically. She had asked humbly if I could pay her only a little on account. "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-ments," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a 'brick." I said-and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow-or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I owe you shall be a first charge oni what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. The gutter was very close. For six weeks I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment- walking on in the crowd. The play had failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company --all but the lucky "stars"-were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I" met Eva--Eva Bradley. She was in the chorus-daughter of a barrister-an orphan, brought up to idleness. In my pocket lay her last ...

PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines. and some authorities have made out. on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. Ou the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at £20 an acre. In a comprehensive articl, in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Laffer speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is desi?.n,...
