VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. The revision of the electoral rolls for the Viotorian Assembly has given some startling results, No loss than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists, an achievement which shows that the past Ministries were sadly parsimonious, or that electoral offlicials gave sorry returns for money paid them, Politioians may amuoa bthem, selves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately, or as inaccurately, as their personal interests suggest, but the average elector lookting at the figures finds other matter for serious concern. The old roll gave the country electorates 363,129 voters, the metro politan oonstituencies 318,786, that is to say the provinces were 44,343 votes to the good, The old state of things was bad, the population and, as a consequence, the political strt ngth of Greater Melbourne was a menaco. But the perfecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed, The metropolitan electora...
Tit for Tat. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
Tit for 'Tat. A well-known comedian has au in exhaustible stock of good stories. One of the ,best concerns a visit to a Scot tish town, The prices had been put up a little, and a man explained to a friend that he had gone to the theatre with his wife, intending to go to'the pit, and had found that eighteenpence was being charged instead of a shill ling. "Of course you didn't go in?" re marked the. friend, "Oh, yes, I went in, but I paid them out for their greed. I sent my wife home, so they lost slxpenqe by it," After a few years of matrimony a man's originality appears to be all concentrated on the thought of some tl ing new to have for dinner, No man ever achieved great success unless he was supplemented by the right kind of subordinate,

Second-best clothes may be worn at home, but not second-best manners. To whom is it worth while to be coura teous if not to the people you love best? I-~

Husband and Wife., . A day or two ago a woman entered a auburl an telegraph office, and said to the r eeiver of messages that she desired to telegraph her husband, who was away in the country, to ask him for money, He pointed her to the coun. ter supplied withl blanks, and told her the rate for a dozen words, She strug. gled away for a quarter of an hour, and then handed in the following: "Won't you please send me five pounds by next post?" "I don't know whether that will do or not," she said, as she felt for her money. "If you were to receive such a telegram from your wife would you forward the money?" "Well--well, I might," he replied, in doubtful tones." "Now, you wait. I don't like the telegram at all, because I tried to keep it within twelve words. I'll write an. other." She tore it up, walked over to the counter, and in three minutes handed in a new one, reading "Am out of food and fuel, and want five pounds as noon as you can got it here, It you can't spare it I'll pawn the p...

HEALTH THE BEST CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
HEAL'THI THIE gES' CAAPI'AL, To talk of the goodness of illness has all the flavor of a paradox. Yet a paradox it certainly is not,. It is not meant that illness in good in itself, but that it can bhe turned to good. It is often the key to unlock the gates of a new life, It often lays hold of men and grips them so that they shall learn that life is not a thing to waste, but to live, What we refuos to learn from illness we shall n~ever learn from health. Health is capital; properly consid. ered, our only capital. A moneyed mhn without it is a bankrupt. Better far that we should take a scythe and sweat with it in hand amid the golden corn than that we should be a duke In a bath-chair, or a Rlockefeller who has to "watch the dumpling" daily for fear of throwing his whole iuternas machinery out of gear. It is strangeu that health, the biggest taink balance a man can have to his name, is apt to be lightly regarded- while we have it, When we have it not, it scems worth about £10 a so. con...

WHY CHILDREN GET NERVOUS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
WHY CHILDWC N O.TV NNERVOU8, Children are such little people in uclh a big world, All their little privi. leges and pleasures; depend so much on the whims of the grown-ups, and not on any basis of right or justice to !.he child, Unless the rights of the little peo. p)le are kept carefully in view by the big people, it is small wonder that they sometimes rebel openly against the authority whose pressure they feel in galling and unreasonable restrictions. Under such circumstances a child, inustead of learning to love and trust Its parents, becomes frightened of them. It becomes nervous of doing anything openly, for fear of irritating Its mother.

PAST AND PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914
. PAST AND PRESENT. When we reflect how many difilel, ties which obstructed the path of true love in bygone ldays have been re. moved, it is hard at first to reconcile the present lack of marriages with the plentiful number of the past. The girl of to.day turns gre~en will envy when her gleat-aunts tell hey how many offers her grI?udnothler had tIerelu, however, lies the chief reason for denying the fact that the modern girl is really more easy to win than the old-fashioned one. The modern girl is by far more crlti cal of the modern man than the old fashioned girl ever presumed to be, and is iluch less willing to abandon her freedom than was the dam(sel of the past, whose single idea of success In life appears to have been to make a good marriage, flinancially and so. cially. A teacher in a small school has for nor pupils the children of RIussian par ents. The other day she was expiain. ing a sum in subtraction which the little ones found dilificlt to iunder, stand.
