Yankee Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
Yankee Humor. :In his recently published volume of remihliscences, entitled, "In Slums and Seciety," the H'on. anid Rev. Canon Adderley mentions as a curious fact tkhat. Mr. Gladstone used to doubt the wit and humor of the American. . There was, however, one story (says Mr. Adderley) which he thought saved their. reputation-namely, that of the Yankee who when asked how :far .it was to a certain place, said: "'I guess if you go the way you're going it's about twenty-four thousand miles, but if you turn around and go tfhe other way it's about five hundred yardse." But the G.O.M. should have kept his eyes and ears open. .This surely is much funnier. :.A .Chicago man and a St. Louis man: had a bet as to which could tell thc biggest lie in so many minutes. The former began, "There was once a gentlemani in Chicago- " "Here, take your ten dollars," said *he from St. Louis. "I can't beat that." ..
COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
COUR?AGE. Great courage is not learned where all is calm, The life of pleasure cannot mould a noble soul; He who would gain the mountain top must toil and climb, Though clouds anid darkness round his pathway roll! The sunbeam could, not paint the flowers of spring, Or rgive them sweetness without frost and tempest rain, So life vould prove to.us a weak and worthless thing, iA part from trial and its hours of True courage springs not from the plane of ease, 'Tis conflict strengthens for the greater 'strife, And vests the mind with more en during power to run The face that builds the noblest form of life. Live nobly, then, with courage firm and true, Meet trials faithfully and fearless as they come, Th9ugh end and object hidden from thy-finite view, .They're cloud-steps reaching up :. ward to thy home. .-R. Hare.. Cobranbong, N.S.W. . .. . . .
The Spirit of Patriotism [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
TheSpirit of Patriotism There is not the slightest doubt that the great majority of Australians are patriotic. That is evidenced by the acclamations of the people when they welcome home the battle-scarred heroes whom the fortune of war has rendered unfit for further active ser vice. The returned men personify the spirit of bravery that character ises the Australians still carrying on in the trenchfes: The cheerfulness of demeanor of the returning men as they step off the various hospital ships and transports is a clear proof of their confidence that the Allies are on the winning side and that although compelled to retire from the fighting ranks they are satisfied with the fact that they have participated in a just cause. Their experiences have brought home to them the realisation of what would have -occurred to this fair land of ours had not the Allies so gallantly repulsed the onslaughts of the aggres sive Hun. If all the fit men of Austra lia were imbued with the same feel ing of ...

What the Minister Needed. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917
What the Minister Needed. Sermons are commonly supposed to be medicinal to the mind of both compounder and congregation; but there was one which, .if the minis ter's servant were right, was an ex ception. One Sunday morning. the late Rev. Ducachat, of Connecticut, arose feeling decidedly ill. After a futile attempt to sat breakfast he called an old and favorite colored servant to him and said: "Sam, go around and tell Simmons" -the sexton-"to post a notice on the church door that I am too ill to preach today." "Now, massa" said Samuel, "don't you gib up dat way. Just gib him a trial; you get 'long all right." The argument resulted in the min ister's determination to try it. 'He preached as usual, and after service returned to the house looking much brighter. "How you feel. massa?" said Sam uel, as he opened the door. "Better; much bett.er, Sam. I'm glad I took your advice." "I knew it, I knew it!" said Sam ue!, grinning from ear to ear. "i knew you feel better when you get dat sermo...
