"HE IS A BRICK." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

"HE IS A BRICK." I do not know liow this slang phrase originated. It is used mainly by boys and young men. When they find a comrade who is generous and jolly, they say: "He is a brick." But I thought of it the other day when visiting the superintendent of a large smelting works. I saw them making up a load for the Mint. The gold that had been refined was in lumps the size and shape of a brick. The superintendent told me that each of those bricks was worth about £300, and added that in these days of hydraulic mining it had cost about as much as it was worth. I could not help thinking about the possible feature of those bricks. Some of them will be well invested, and will be represented ten or twen ty years hence by beautiful homes, fruitful orchards, or benevolent in stitutions. Some of lliem will be represented by wrecked lives and ruin ed souls. As I passed down the street I saw a group of young men standing at the corner, and heard one of them say: "John, you are a brick." The you...

BUILD A COMPLETE, WELLROUNDED CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

BUILD A COMPLETE, WELL ROUNDED CHARACTER. Have you ever observed, says the novelist Bjornsen, tliat happy people work better than those who are sad? Why? The same occupation con stantly, whether it be work, prayer or amusement, would make us stupid and gloomy. You can dig in the dirt until you become a brute, pray until the habit makes you a monk, and play until you become a mere puppet; but combine the three, it will streng then the heart and soul. Thus your work will be made more fruitful and your religion more cheerful.

Why? "Why does the 'baker knead the dough?" Inquired my son, aged six ,or sough, And I replied in accents' lough: "Because we knead the bread, you knougli!" "But, then, why do we need the :bread?" The same inquiring youngster sead. "Because small boys have to be fead," Quoth 1. "Now, off you go to bead!" It was bound to come.

Likewise, when an article is good, somebody will be sure to mention it.

Simple Sandy. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914

Simple Sandy. A commercial traveller had taken a large order up in Aberdeen, and en deavored to press upon the canny Scottish manager who had given the order a box of Havana cigars. "Naw," he replied. "Don't try to bribe a man. 1 cudna tak' them—and .1 am a member of the kirk!" "But will you accept them as a present?" "I cudna," said the Scot. "Well, then," said the traveller, "suppose 1 sell you the cigars for a merely nominal sum—say, sixpence?" "Weel, in that case," replied the Scot, "since you press me, and not liking tae refuse an offer weel meant, I think I'll be taking twa boxes." "Opportunity may knock at every man's door," writes a disappointed wag, "but to me opportunity has al ways seemed more like one of those small boys who ring the doorbell and then run."

1 ^ WHERE MATCHES ARE ; UNKNOWN. '—T*—" The natives of the Philippines, of Borneo, and the Malay Archipclngo still make fire by striking pieces of bamboo together. • Bamboo seems to be particularly suited to making fire. • Tho natives take ono piece of convex surface and cut a slit in the wood. Then they carefully shave off a mass of fine bamboo shavings, which . make excellent tinder. This tinder is placed under the slip in the wood. Then another piece of - wood.
