To look at the cranks the first day out yor would not know one from the other,buttheir idioavncrasihs begin to come to the top as soon as they are well out to sea. There is, for instance, the crank who bah been across thirteen times. "This is my' fourteenth trip, sir. I am an old sailor, I am." He begins a conversation with: "Gentlemen, when I crossed the time be fore last, in the "Hoosanic," that wias a trip I tell you. Stormy ?

CHILDREN'S MINDS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 March 1895

CHILDREN'S MINIDS. Ohildren commence life, not indeed as sheets of blank paper on shich we may write at will, but with every variety of emlnper and inclination for good and for evil bequeathed to them bythose wrho gave them boirth.
