FOR QUIET MOMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

FOR QUIET MOMENTS. Words are the coin of thought. Content is the short cut to happi ness. Aim at the highest and at lfeast you soar. ' The sweetest grapes hang nighest That is gold what is worth gold. We make our disappointments by being too exacting. The streams of small pleasures fill the lake of happiness. By the street By-and-bye we arrive at the house of Never. Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one. Soon ripe, soon rotten; soon wise, soon foolish. He who has no plagues makes him self some. It is our own most prominent fault that looks ugliest in another. It is by what we do, not by what is done for us, that we become strong or good. The man who has no money , in his purse must have honey in his mouth. When men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it be good or bad. He who would eat the kernel mus'. crack the nut—he who would have the gain must have the pain.

A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. A curious incident occurred 36 hours after leaving Southampton. A large bird perched itself on the sum mit of the main mast, a sailor went Up and caught it and brought it down, and it proved to be a brown owl! I am superstitious about owls, and was v ry depressed, especially as I had left my favorite sister ill. The sailors tied a string around the poor, dazed creature's leg and were rather ill treating it, so I offered them two shil lings for the bird, which they accept ed, and I then let it out of my port hole. The captain told me that they often caught even smaller birds on the mast, especially Avlien the wind was blowing off the land. On arriv ing at Lisbon we received a telegram to say that 36 hours after my depar ture, my sister had passed away, and also Lady Macdonell, the wife of Gen eral Sir A. Macdonell, my brother-in law—It was a strange coincidence!— "Reminiscences of a Diplomatic Life," by Lady Macdonell.

The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

The Bull Didn't Know. A story is told of a great English personage who thought everybody know or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a 'bull addressed liim in an undertone, and made for him with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. 1-Ie was a Minister, a man of dignity and of political power. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for oflice, and he got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull contem plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an infur iated animal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the farmer^ "Right? Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" said the farmer.

UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. To place an umbrella in a rack at a club or a friend's house is a sign that it is about to change owners. To see two walking under one um brella, the drippings falling on the male shoulder, is a good sign of an engagement, while if the female shoul der catches the drippings we may safely conclude they are married. An umbrella held in the manner of a golf-club in a main thoroughfare at 1 a.m. is a sign that the glass has risen, but a storm is brewing. Ail umbrella in "uncle's" window in dicates that someone has had a "rainy" day. The very best thing worth living for is to be of use. The child who is taught this both by precept and ex ample, will never grow up to find time hang heavy on his hands.

FULL OF RESOURCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

FULL OF RESOURCE. Jean Bart, a French naval comman der of the last part of the seven teenth century was at one time order-; ed to convey the Prince de Conti, a candidate for the throne of Poland, to Dantzic, a voyage fraught with dan ger, as his vessel must pass through the waters where were cruising the hostile fleets of the English and Dutch. During the passage, the lit tle squadron was chased by the en emy, and Bart, as soon as they were reported, called his little son to him and gave him whispered instructions. The pursuit continued for eight hours, and at the end of that time, the en emy was no longer in sight. Then Bart went down into the cabin, where the prince had been sitting in ignor ance of the day's excitement. "You've had a narrow escapo, mon seigneur," said he.

THE FEDERAL SITUATION DOUBLE DISSOLUTION GRANTED (BY WIRE—FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT) Melbourne, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

THE FEDERAL SITUATION DOUBLE DISSOLUTION GRANTED (BY WIRE—FnOM OUB CORRESPONDENT) Melbourne, Friday. During the discussion in the Senate on the Federal situation on Thursday afternoon, Mr. Hughes, the former Attorney-Generate of the Commonwealth, contended that Mr- Cook, the Prime Minister, should see the Governor-General at once and tender his advice in favor of a double dissolution. Mr. Hughes said that Section 57 of the Federal Constitution was distinct in its purpose. After the condi tion ^recited therein had been complied with, and advice given, the Governor-General, if he thought tit, could dissolve both Houses. The passage through the House of Representatives and rejection by the Senate of the Preference Pro hibition Bill on two occasions, with the nccessary interval between, was a compliance with the con dition referred to. A double dissolution was granted to-day (Friday) and the House adjourned until Wednesday next.
