A Good Two Miles. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

A Good Two Miles. After a hard day's work at manoeu vres, a battalion of soldiers were marching wearily along a seemingly interminable country road, when they met a man on horseback. ' I say," said the officer in command, "how far is it to the next town?" "About two miles," was tho reply. B'or another hour tho soldiers tramped, and then met another stran ger. "How far iB it to tlio next town?" he was asked. "A good two mileB, I should say," waB tho reply. Another hour passed, and then an other horseman waB encountered. "How far?" he repeated, in answer to tho same question; "oh, not far, only about two miles." "Well," sighed the optimistic offi cer, "thank goodness, we are holding our own, anyhow."

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If yon don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember,. you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do its work efficiently. & You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost sure to awake somewhere near it. * By extending this system you can obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may bo totally dissim ilar...

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARE CREATED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

FASHIONS. HOW THEY ARE CREATED. I Paris is the homo and centre of : fashions for women (writes I*. W. in a London pit per). The most famous : dressmakers in tho world are in Paris, and ho groat a reputation ha* that city in tills respect that union? 1 tho society womon whose wealth keeps tho trade allvo it is cvlmoBt a reproach to wear any frock that does not come from tho Froncli capital, or which, if made iu England, was not copied from a Parisian dosign. Now, it will be seen at once that to maintain such a reputation as this tho Parisian dressmakers must con stantly create now designs. If they did not, London or some other city would soon do so and would rob them of their reputation for originality and creative genius. So for half the year at least, when the spring and autumn fashions arc in preparation, they work almost night and day, in order that, at those sci'.> sons when ladles of fashion will want new frocks, they may have in readi ness a largo number of fresh designs, o...

NIGHT VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

NIGHT VOICES. By E. S. Sorenaon in the "Sydney Mail." Recently Mr. H. Watson asked for information on, the night voices of the bush, remarking that "there are other night birds besides the mopokb and the night hawk—those barking birds, for instance, and anothor fel low which makes a sort of screech." What he calls tho night hawk is the white-throated nightjar, a useful in sect-eater; and the chap that yelps for his mato is the barking owl. There aro many diurnal birds that aro not altogether quiescent at night, nor do all the nocturnal cries come from birds. Koalas, possums, and squirrels mako a lot of noise when a couple of them have a disagreement. Tho pos sum calls pleasantly in peaceful hours, and the squirrel ofttlmes vents a chat tering squeal as he darts from one tree to another. The most familiar noctures are those of the dingo, the mopoke, and the stone curlew (weelo, or stone plover). The dingo's howl, is always a lonely sound; the call of the mopoke is sweet, haunting, an...

LIFE IN RHODESIA. VICTORIAN WOMAN'S VIEWS. BLACK SERVANTS. Lifo in the liinderland o{ South Africa is not exactly similar to llfo in Australia's Northern Territory, an cording to Mrs. W. E.

"My husband was in charge of one of the railway stations, which was really the receiving depot for the settlers' produce. So 1 had many opportunities of learning the ways of the people. It was a bit strange a', first. For miles around stretched the veldt, while here and thero a farm house dotted the landscape. But the strangeness soon wore off.

LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Hichcs, whatever their charm and their value, are not a panacea for the evils of life. . . . Happiness depends on work, health, character, disposi tion, training, and a great many other things besides income, and so far as happiness is concerned, enough money, or somewhat less than enough, puts us in just about as good a case to achieve it as though wo were rich. To live our lives, lo get out what is in us, to do our share of the world's work and live brotherly with our fel lows—that is what we arc here for. If riches are an incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dent. If the chase after them lures us away from the fulfilment of our pri mary obligations to our Maker, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if, succccding, we lose the Christmas out of our year, the Christmas spirit out of our lives.

THE TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Rudyard Kipling's "Ho Travels Fastest Who Travels Alone." Who travels alone with his eye on tlio heights, Though ho laughs in the daytime, oft weeps through the nights For courage goes down with tho set of the sun, When tho toil of tho journey is all borne by one. Mo speeds but to grief, though full gaily he ride, Who travels alone without Lovo by hiB side. Who travels alone, without lover or friend, But hurries from nothing, to nought at tho end; Though great be his winnings, and high 'bo liis goal, He is bankrupt in wisdom, and beg gared in soul. Life's one gift of value to him is de nied Who travels alone without Lovo at his side. it is easy enough in this world to make haste If we live for that purpose; but thlnlc of the waste! For life is a poem to leisurely read, And the joy of a journey lies not in its speed. Oh! vain Ills achievement, and petty his pride, Who travels alono without Love at his sido.

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 29 May 1914

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know | how they are formed? When snow falls in the Polar re-; eions. or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience ' of young folks in the theatre of *he Royal Geographical Society at burl Ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So the layers of an fire constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but on a high tableland there is no such es cape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up :> great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is ihc eaaen tial feature in the glacior. First the grains of ice are no nigger than a pin's head; but they gradually, as the 1 pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large ones absorb t...
