WHAT A MILLION POUNDS REPRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914
WHAT A MILLION POUNDS REPRESENTS. We think and talk in millions now adays, little realising what a million pounds represents (says a writer in an exchange). Take the following ex amples:—Assuming that Adam was created 6000 years ago, had received £3 per week from birth, and saved the whole of it, without paying for food, clothes, or lodgings, he would not be a millionaire to-day. Again: Suppose a man started at 20 years of age to earn a million pounds, he must save (exclusive of living expen ses) £20,000 per annum for 50 years, i.e., £66 per day for 3300 days in each year. Is the labor of any man worth any such sum? On the other hand, suppose a man at 20 years of age In herits £20,000,000, and invests it at 10 per cent, compound interest; in 50 years his capital would exceed the total annual national income of £1,800,000,000, equivalent to 9000 per cent increase in fifty years. ■ fc
A NOTABLE AUSTRALIAN MINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914
A NOTABLE AUSTRALIAN MINISTER. (By the Rev. W. Gray Dixon, M.A.) The death of the Rev. Samuel Fraser, M.A., of Terang, Victoria,, removed from the ranks of onr Australian minist^ a strong and striking personality. Beyond his own parish and Presbytery Mr. Fraser was not much in the public eye He remained to the end—for 43 years—in the attractive rural parish over which he was ordained on his arrival from Scotland, ad hering. to an extraordinary extent even to his own pulpit, for only under quite exceptional circum stances did he exchange with his brother ministers, and, although supreme in his own Presbytery, of which he was clerk, and in which he exercised a fine ecclesiastial statesmanship, he surprised his friends by studiously remaining one of the silent members in the Gen eral Assembly. But for those who knew him he was one of the out standing men of the Victorian Church. His sphere was that part of the western district of Victoria which is covered by the Presbytery of Mortlake....

Knew For a Certainty. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914
Knew For a Certainty. ! There is something so honest ana bold in the self-criticism of a man who appreciates his own virtues that it may well appal the soul unaccustomed to confidence. A well-known general, in reviewing a corps of cavalry, suddenly stopped before a splendid-looking fellow, and asked abruptly: i "Which is the best horse in the regi j ment, my man?" | "Number 40, sir." "What makes you think that he is the best horse?" "He walks, trots, and gallops well, is a good leaper, has no vice, no blem ish, carries his head well, is in his prime." . "And who is the best soldier in the regiment?" "Tom Bodgers sir." j "Why?" I "Because he is an honorable man, is ■ obedient, tidy, takes good care of his equipment and his horse, and does his duty well." "And who Is the rider of the best horse?" "Tom Bodgers, sir." "And who is Tom Bodgers?" j "I am, sir." The general could not help laugh ing, but he gave a sovereign to his in formant. They were visiting London for the first time, and...
