THREE TYPES OF CHARACTERS SERMON BY REV. H. J. COCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

THREE TYPES OF CHARACTERS , \ SERMON BY REV. Hi J. COCKS, I At the Methodist Church on Sun | day evening the Rev.- H. J. Cocks took for his text the words, in St. L,ukes gospel, chapter 9, verses 57 ; to 62. He said, the striking point about this portion at first sight is the chilly and cold reception that Christgave these three men who wished to follow Him. One would think that Christ, from the very outset, endeavoiired to place a stumbling block in their road, and, by the terms or conditions laid down, made it almost impossible for some men to begin to follow Him. Take for example, the case of the rich young ruler, who ran to Christ. Look at the reception he got. We are told that Christ looked on the ruler and loved him but His reply was, "Go! see all that thou hast and give it to the poor, then come and follow Me." The young ruler turned, went his way and Christ let him go. We have for our consideration three types of characters. The first was hasty, the. second slow, and the thi...

Knew For a Certainty. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

V Knew For a Certainty. There is something so honest ana bold in the self-criticism of a man who appreciates his own virtues that it may well appal the soul unaccustomed to confidence. A well-known general, in reviewing a corps of cavalry, suddenly stopped before a splendid-looking fellow, and asked abruptly: "Which is the best horse in the regi ment, my man?" "Number 40, sir." "What makes you think that he is the best horse?" j "He walks, trots, and gallops well, Is a good leaper, has no vice, no blem ish, carries his head well, is in his ! prime." i "And who is the best soldier in the regiment?" "Tom Bodgers, sir." "Why?" "Because he is an honorable man, is obedient, tidy, takes good care of his equipment and his horse, and does his duty well." "And who is the rider of the best horse?" "Tom Bodgers, sir." "And who is Tom Bodgers?" "I am, sir." The general could not help laugh ing, but he gave a sovereign to his in formant. They were visiting London for the first time, and had take...

WHAT A MILLION POUNDS REPRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 27 May 1914

WHAT A MILLION POUNDS REPRESENTS. . • I We think and talk in millions now adays, little realising what a million pounds represents (says a writer in j an exchange). Take the following ex amples:—Assuming that Adam was created 6000 years ago, had received £3 per week from birth, and saved the whole of it, without paying for food, clothes, or lodgings, he would not be a millionaire to-day. Again: Suppose a man started at 20 years of age to earn a million pounds, he must save (exclusive of living expeu ses) £'20,000 per annum for 50 years, i.e., £66 per day for 3300 days in each year. Is the labor of any man worth any such sum? On the other hand, suppose a man at 20 years of age in herits £20,000,000, and invests it at 10 per cent, compound interest; in 50 years his capital would exceed the total annual national income of £1,800,000,000, equivalent to 9000 per cent Increase in fifty years.

CURD TEST FOR CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914

CURD TEST FOR CHEESE-MAKING. The Wisconsin curd test Is perhaps the simplest test for cheese-makers to adopt where there is any doubt as to the purity of the milk employed. The test can be carried out without any outlay in plant if the cheesemaker possesses <?isulficient glass or glazed : earthenware jars in which to test the j samples required, a tank or bath in 1 which water can be kept at an even ■ temperature, a thermometer, a bone or j silver knife, and a little cheese rennet. ■ The jars must be thoroughly clean and sterilised with live stream, or im mersed In boiling water, dried and numbered. The samples of the milk to be tested are put into the jars pro vided, and each lot treated to 98deg. Fah., and a little cheese rennet added. The rennet is mixed in the milk by giving the jar a rotary motion, and the curd allowed to stand for 20 or 30 minutes until firm, when it is cut and the whey drained off. The jars con taining the curd ave then covered over, and returned t...

LOOK AFTER THE CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914

UOOK AFTbR THE CHICKENS. ♦ Fresh ground and fresh air are e» Bential to the healthy growth of chick ens. No greater mistake can be made than to attempt to rear them on foul ground, Under such conditions they are constantly mopy and unhealthy. If they survive it is in a very shaky foi-m, and they never attain a robust state. Farmhouse fowls, as a rule, are always kept about the buildings and around the doors. This Is a convenience in come ways. It is nandy for feeding and supervision, but this is all that can be said in its favor. It is possible to disinfect ground for adult fowls, but the tender Mttle chicks must have none but absolutely clean surfaces if they are to thrive like mushrooms, and they are naturally capable of this. There is no half-way of dealing with the objection, £nd I wnuid urge that young chicks be given clean, sweet ground from the first. There is a diffi culty in doing this in confined runs, but such an excuse does not exist on the farm, where so much space is a...

Prepared For Him. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914

Prepared For Hfm. Old Jasper Belding, one of the in habitants. of a small American town, has a very pretty daughter, Mary, on whom he keeps a sharp eye. Many young men have been driven away by a few minutes' chat with the old gentleman. But on one occasion he met his match. "You seem like a nice young man, find perhaps you are in love with Mary?" said he. "Yes, I am," was the candid reply. "Haven't said anything to her yet, feave you?" "Well, no; but I think she recipro cates my affection." "Does, eh? Well, let me tell you something. Her mother died a luna tic, and there's no doubt that Mary has inherited her weakness. You taow Mary has a terrible temper. She has more than once thrown things a< me when in a rage." "I'm used to that—got a sister just like her," wa3 the answer. "And you should know that I ha\« fowed not to give Mary a penny of my property," continued the father. "Well, I'd rather start poor, and amass wealth gradually.

WITH REDEEMING TRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914

WITH REDEEMING TRAIT8. "I have never met a criminal, ev8n of the worst type," said a veteran law yer, "who did not possess one or more redeeming traits of character. "I was once, for example, engaged In ^je prosecution of an utterly unscru pulous swindler. Rogue as he was, this man, nevertheless, troubled him self greatly about the welfare of a favorite cat, and was not to be paci fied until he was assured .that it would have a kindly guardian during his en forced absence from home. "In another case a nardenea malefactor was deeply solicitous pjiout the welfare of a boy whom ue had led into evil courses. He did not rest until he had managed to place the Ia<i in good hands and provide for his maintenance and moral welfare. "In a third instance—only one of many—a criminal used nearly all his f"n'!s ii; making restitution to an oJd whose financial ruin he bad bruugiit ah™ir."

t in. nai mirn»mra»T» A SINGULAR STORY. I;i probably no household Is • to-day which would not con s voice to the chorus of praise .. u. un!y accorded the ubiquitous and tiyiitiformed biscuit. Yet ic is related that this popular item of diet. owes its existence to a mere chance. In 1550, when the French Cour^,journey ing hither and thither in the provinces, was making a stay in a small Langue doe village the master-baker of the place was commanded, says a popu lar political contemporary, to supply a cake which should not only be pala table, but which should also be a lciud not procurable in any other place. The order gave the master-baker icod for thought; he was an ambitiou3 man who hoped to establish a reputa tion. Therefore he cudgelled ilia brains day and night, and the more he thought the less he succeeded in puz zling out a new recipe. He mixed Hour, sugar and milk, and then in despair went away, seeing that nothing nev. could come of this mixture, and turned into the nearest i...

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, MAY 30. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 30 May 1914

"The Dispatch" ; : Published Wednesday and Saturday Mr. Holman forecasts as enter prises bis Government proposes to operate, State market gardens and State bakeries. Mr. Holman does not approve of the,Chinese garden vegetables. So, ivith schemes of irrigation, he proposes to supplant "John" and instal white labor. This is a pesky sort of world, any way ! If Mr. Holman supplants Chinese labor he will displace the cheapest in the New South Wales market. To be logical, he ought instead to insist on "John" getting 8s per day for eight hours' work. "John" labors long hours and he gets low pay (for a European), and he thrives, and yet he sells vegetables at a relatively low rate. To displace "John" Mr. Holman must produce vegetables at a less cost than "John" does, and. must sell them for less. Otherwise, "John" will continue to thrive ; for the housewife will not give six pence for a cabbage if she can get one for threepence. To operate State kitchen gardens successfully, Mr. Holman must...
