HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely when and where Nelson lost his leoft eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during the siege .of Bastia, in 1798, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. lie says that it was In the year 1780, when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruls. ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the list of one-eyeal warriors. After inflicting every pos. sible injury on the Spanish Colonle., Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de .Nicara guna. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrifled at the i...

A MAN'S LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

A MAN'S LIFE. A man's life is full of crosses. He comes into the world without his will; and the trip between the two is exceedingly rocky. The rule of the contraries is one of the import ant features of the trip. W\hen he is little the big girls kiss hbin; but when he is grown up the little girls kiss him. If he is poor he Is a bad manager; if he is rich he is dishonest. If he needs credit he can't get It; if he is prosperous everyone wants to lend him something. If he's in politics it's for what he coan get out of it; if he's not Interested in politics he is destitute of public spirit. If he doesn't give to charity he Is a stingy cuos; if he does it Is for show. If he is actively religious he is a hypocrite; if he takes no interest in religion he Is a hardened sinner. If he shows affection Ihe is a soft specimen; if he seems to care for no one lie is cold-blooded. If he dies young there was a great future ahead of him; If he lives to an old age he has missed his calling.

KEEP YOUR GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

KEEP YOUR GRIT. Hang onl Cling ou! No matter what they say. Push on! Sing on! Things will come your way. Sitting down and whining never helps a bit; Best 'way to get there is by keeping up your grit. Don't give up hoping when the ship goes down; Grab a spar or something--ust re fuse to drown. Don't think you're dying just because you're hit, Smile in face of danger and hang to your grit. Folks die too easy-they sort of fade away; Make a little error, and give up in dismay. Kind of man that's needed is the man of ready wit, To laugh at pain and trouble and keep his grit.

Australian Defence. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

Australian Defende. --.4 In the House of Representa tives on Thursday night last, Mr Conroy opened a discussion on our system of defence, which he suggested should be considered on non-party lines. The suggestion with regard to discussion was adopted, and on this occasion there was the rare experience in late days, of the national Parlia ment putting country above party. Mr Conroy attacked the present defence system on the ground that it was unnecessary to enforce compulsory training under the age of 17 or 18 years, that effective defence of Australia must be at sea, and that land forces would be more or less ineffdctivo. Mr Dankel (S.A.) argued in favor of six months' contihuous training, as preferable' to the spreading of the training period, in short terms, over, a series of years. Colonel Ryrie (N.S.W.) .vigor ously.urged the necessity of:pro viding for land defence forces under the existing system, and affirmed evidence of the good effect of compulsory training in a large" numb...

While driving hid bul look dray he noticed aleasghing Jack ass apparently battling with a snake by the. roadside, Taking his whip handle he went over to the scene of the conflict with the view of helping the bird to overcome its enemy.

He had got down about Din. of the head end and there the snake stuck, the bird being neither able to complete its absorption nor to eject it.

Mr. Wise pick ed up the "combination,'.' the bird be ing unable to offer resistance, and carried it home, and secured an excel. lent photograph of the still firmly united pair.

HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

HABIT. Habit in a person is at first like a spider's web; if neglected it be comes a thread of twine; next, t cord of rope; finally, a cable - then who can break it? There are habits contracted by bad example, or many other ways, before we have Judgment to discern their approaches, or be cause the eye of reason is laid asleep. Coleridge, one of the finest poets of his time, battled for twenty years ,before he could emancipate him self from his tyrant, opium. He hired a man to watch him day, and night, and keep him by force froin touching the pernicious drug. - lie formed re solution after resolution. Yet, during "a'TihbifiEst years of his lifd; he wast ed his substance and his health, ne glected his family, lived accursed be cause he had no resolution to ab stain.

CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 28 May 1914

CHARACTER. There is no instinct implanted in the breast of man so universally an tive as the love of character. In this respect, the prince on his throne, the Judge on his bench, the merchant.In his counting-house, are alike. Touch them in whatever pertains to their worldly interest-their business or their wealth-and your lnterferencn, though it may indeed be rebuked, will, yet be borne with comparative Indif ference. Tamper with them even in the matter of life, trifle with their health, expose them to disease, and still you. nlofictnot.a deadly.. wound; but let the pestiferous breath of slander breathe upon their fair fame, you touci their happiness in its most vital part. To a man of virtuous sensibilities and refined feelings, there is nothing in life that can be placed in competl tion with it. It is the chain that holds .him to society, and the talls man that preserves his rafi. Cast a mildew upon this, and you convert his moments of pleasure into sea? sons of anxiety and burnin...

A horse was led into the ring carry log on his back what looked like an old tar barrel, with which he trotted at first slowly round. Presently he. began to quicken his pace, and as he did so. one end of the barrel wan pushed out by some unknown means, and out popped a human head; next a pair of arms pushed themselves out; then the barrel tell to pieces, and a rough-looking countryman, dressed in a loose, shaggy coat, stood up on the horse's back, holding a whip in his hand, which he cracked. The horse at once broke into a swift gallop, and the man pulled off the great coat, which he threw down, showing that he had on another one underenatb. As the horse went faster and faster, his rider stripped off his other coat; then a third; then -a fourth. He seemed to have enough coats on to furnish an old clothes shop, and ap. parently he did not care in the least what be...
