Compulsory Drill. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

Compulsory Drill. Speaking at the Y.M.C. debate on Tuesday, 14th inst, Rev. R. N. Morrison said—Two great ideals stand as a basis for our debate this evening: It is necessary that every argument must have ■ some common ground or foundation upon which both sides are agreed and-I take it that upon these two ideals we-:may all agree. The first is that every one loves their country,-and the se cond that tncy desire lo be worthy of her themselves. Who does not love their country ? In the words of the poet— Breathes there a man with soul so dead,. Who never to himself hath said, - " This is my own, my native land." We are for the most part Austra lian born—members of a great na tion, which is but the daughter of "one of the greatest nations in the world. In Australia we have a wonderful country, which it is at the present beyond our power to protect should invasion come, as come it may at any time. Invasion by another power, even if unsuc cessful, wouldlalways include great, loss of capit...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

Wit and Wisdom. Cleverness is often only the art of hiding ignorance successfully. One of the saddest things in life is that it isn't always possible to under stand the people one loves best. Young men sew wild oats and old ones grow sage. Looks are as treacherous as words and ever so much more dangerous. Pay as you go—but don't go too much. • Change is the only thing that is consistent. Buttons are simple events until they come off in unexpected places. L,ife is a day's work, long or short, and death is-the sleep that comes at <the end of the day. Happy is the man who can work well, think well, live well and die 'well.

COUNTING THE TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 23 July 1914

Counting the Time. , • Do you think you could count a billion ? Everyone knows that - a billion is a million times a million. That's easy ; but nobody can count up to a billion, because nobody would live long enough. You may count 160 or 170 a minute ; but let us; suppose that you go as high as ' 200 a minute then an hour will produce 12,000 ; a day, 288,000 ; and a year, or 365 days (for every four years you may rest from counting' during leap-year), 105, 120,000. v Let us suppose, then, that Adam, at the begining of his existence, had begun to count, had continued to do so, and was counting still, he would not . even now have; counted .enough. To count a billion you r would "require 9,512 years, 34 days, 5 hours, and 20 minutes, at the above mentioned rate of 200 a min ute. .

After a while all resume their seats, and one at a time the •players take turn to go round the company endeavouring by means of questions to discover the name of the charactei affixed to his or her back. The replies must be limited to " Yes" or " No." If he fails to guess correct^7 he must pay a forfeit, after which the next player goes the round of the room, duly questioning the other players, and so the game proceeds.'

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 July 1914

LADIES', LETTER. From "Irene" in Melbourne. |' Melbourne' Cup Carnival is ^threa tened in .the. Costliness of its dress display by 'a growing sister in the same family. Last Saturday at Flem-' ington was a revelation. Mr. Byron Moore and his committee need not worry their heads about providing more jumping events; there are enough thrills in the crowd of wo menfolk that parade on the stand side of the race-track. Fair creatures in tiger-skins, leopard-skins and bear skins. More of them than were ever stocked in any forest jungle. Cup figures may not be approached in at tendance, but in average cost of wo men's apparel the National meeting is miles ahead. Lovely woman comes out in all her .luxury. If it is not tiger skins, leopard skins, or bear skins, it is furs from the Polar seas, ermine seal or minx, and if you cannot reach them there is N.Z. coney—all costing money. A Cup dress may run from ten guineas to anything, but Grand National garb begins where the other ends. We have a s...
