TRAINING THE CHILD OUT OF SELF-LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
TRAINING THE CHILD OUT OF SELF-LOVE. At birth man is not only the most helpless of animals but the most de stitute o£ intelligence. For in the be ginning of life he possesses neither instinct nor the capacity for thought. The intellectual and moral faculties and all that is spiritual in man's na ture await development and growth. The lower order of these faculties are the first to develop. The first manifestations of love are confmcd to the narrow limitations of self. But early the little soul throws out its ten drils to cling to the support of out ward love and sympathy. It embraces il:e mother first, because she contri butes the most directly to its enjoy-, ment and comfort; and then, as the circle widens, it learns to regard the other near friends with favor, in the degree that they minister to the plea sure of the young autocrat. Love has, as yet, no generous pramptings. Pos session is the whole law. The child not only clings tenaciously to his own, and makes vigorous protests i...

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" tells the following, amusing story of a Brit ish midshipman's adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a rickshaw. There was a keen 'breeze blowing, but it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't nny. But if his face were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions, which lie puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun.". When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and ordered the cooli...
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. • The education of an infant should commence as soon as it is born a3 good or had habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby in fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to suck to "keen it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting thai by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bound together; one cannot have a good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wron^. but perhaps at first the wrong path is...
CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
CHAPTER XVI. It was on the afternoon of the day that Shamus O'Doyle started for Ire land and Karl Kruger took boat from Southampton to his native land, also that Peter Bellairs came home rather later than usual and requested his : wife to send Sheila with a message to the Duchess,, saying that Tie par ticularly wished to speak to her alone. For Bellairs had made up his mind, and that mind, once made up, was not likely to be disturbed again. The time had passed when he could scold Margaret for "what she had done, and the unhappy man was de termined to get rid of her. He en- i fered her boudoir, sat do"wn and said abruptly: "I have a few things to say to you, Margaret." "Yes, Peter," she rep'ied, looking at him with frightened blue eyes". "Have you heard from your son lately?" "Yes, I had a letter, but you said I wasn't to mention his name to you, so I did not tell you anything about i* He seems to be getting on well, in his yew employment, although the poor boy does not care for offi...

FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. Rather a risky substitute for a bat tle-Held is.the top of an omnibus, but there have been not a few Homeric struggles on "imperiales," as they are termed in Paris. , The latest adventure, says the Paris ci ^respondent of the "Daily Tele graph," of the sort owed its origin to a very comical mistake. At a parti cular Parisian office there ascended to the dummit of one of these vehicles aa individual o£ very comfortable di mensions, who was speedily immersed in the study of his newspaper, a pretty and well-dressed woman, many years his junior, and an elderly man, who looked like a retired officer. The omnibus had hardly started when the old beau began to cast glances ex pressive of intense admiration at his fair neighbor, and .although he re ceived no encouragement he contin ue&lt;J his attempt to get up a flirtation with her quite unabashed. Suddenly the lady rose to her feet, at the Im minent risk of toppling over, and screamed out, "You ruffian! N...

TO A BIRD. (Lines suggested by seeing one on : a lady's hat in church.)' Cruel the art, Poor bird, that killed and placed you there, To form a part Of yonder lady's plumage rare!, - Who will consent That she, who hither came to pray, Has a heart as innocent As yours was in its gladsome day? And -who can tell If the praise she offers In this throng Is as acceptable As once ascended with your song? Whatever land Claimed your nativity, there The same kind Hand Created you, that did this lady fair. Throughout your days Your little throat was made and meant To sing God's praise, Unharmed, a harmless instrument. And the religion that Would take your pretty form and pin It to a lady's hat May point to Heaven—but ne'er enter in.
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. There is 110 merit in having a hard time in this life. There is no sin in merely having an easy time here. No man can confidently expect to he a gainer, in the next life, because he has suffered much in this life. Nor need any person lack hope for the life beyond, because he has 'found joy and had pleasure in the present life yoar by year. A life rightly spent may give joy in the present, and may have promise of the life that is to com^. If we would hope for the future, let us use well the present. v
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does not run out. But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to ibe used with an economy at leaBt equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper— invaluable treasure of anger. Is ang...

PROM PAPUA. WHITE WOMAN ON PATROL. TANGO NOT THERE YET. Mrs. Greenland, who is at present in Sydney, has spent just eight months in Papua on the Mambare River, in which division her husband was magi strate. It is away up near the Ger man border, and the only other white woman lived 70 miles away! "But we knew each otker quite well," Mrs. Greenland Baid, "although we actually met only three days ago, here in Sydney. They had plenty of eggs at the other station, and a na tive boy would often arrive with a lit tle gift from my unseen friend. It 3eemed so strange meeting for the first time across a hotel dinner table, after having exchanged so many let ters through native carriers." "What did you do all day?" "Well, in the morning I'd fuss round, thinking i was very busy with odds and ends, then I'd read, and on the station there is always something happening, so that time never hangs on our hands. You would hardly be lieve that although I- took out quite a stock of sewing, there was no...

John's Point of View. In the neighborhood of Shanghai an English sailor, on his way to thu foreigners' l-urial ground to lay a 1 wreath on the grave of a former com rade, met an intelligent-looking na tive, carrying a pot of rice. "Hallo, John," he hailed, "where are you going with that?" "I takee pot on glave—glave of my fiend," said the Chinaman. "Ho, ho," laughed the sailor; "and when do .you expect your friend to come up and eat it." . "At samee time," replied ' John, "that your flend comee up and smel lee flowers."

WAS HE BURIED ALIVE? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
WAS HE BURIED ALIVE? 1 The village of La Garde, in the De partment of Ariege, France, became greatly agitated by persistent reports that a retired Toulhouse police offi cial named Carol, who died last month, had been buried alive. The au thorities finally also became alarmed, and ordered an investigation, ■which established that the sexton of the graveyard where the body was buried, a man named Delpech, while filling in the grave, had been startled by tappings from the coffin. He called a passer by, who also beard the noise. The family of the supposed dead man was then summoned, but, says Reuter, ifter waiting a long time without any repetition of the tapping the brother in-law said that it was the sexton'3 imagination, and that he wis satis fied that Carol was dead. He ordered ;I:3 grave to be filled up, which was . don 6. v;'

Marchi went to the detective office and handed a note to Supt. Roche, chief of the detectives.

MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914
MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES. An Industrial experiment that is causing much controversy in the world's presB just now is that o£ Henry Ford, an American motor car manufacturer, who is distributing 10,000,000dol. of profits among his em ployes. These profits are distributed in weekly portions in the pay envel opes of the workers, and with the wages bring the ordinary worker over £1 per day. Detroit, where the Ford plant is situated, has been inundated since the announcement was made with seekers after employment where the high wages are handed out, ac cordingly the payment of double the ruling wage has had a most unsettling effect upon other employers' labor in the motor industry. Ford has highly specialised all operations in his fac tory, with the result that each man of the 15,000 employes has some small task allotted him, which practice en able him to perform at great speed; but the argument against this sys tem is that it tends to turn the man into a mere automatic...
