LIKE AN ENGINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 30 August 1906
LIKE AN ENGINE. A chemist gave a startling.illustra\x=req-\ tion of the power of the gases contained in the human body by men | tioning the fact that were they sud\x=req-\ 1 denly to explode they would be sufficient to wreck a battleship. A man weighing twelve stone con\x=req-\ I tains, amongst other gases, S8 lbs. of I oxygen and 14 lbs. of hydrogen. The 1 gases are, of course, in a highly condensed form like gasoline or guapow der. How is it, then, the human body does not occasionally explode? As a matter of fact (said the authority), a series of minute explosions are going on all the time. Every thought and every movement of the body mean the I detonation of gases. >-The human j body, in short, is like a complex gas\x=req-\ engine. Our food represents the gasoline, and the gas generated Is fired by our nerves, just as it is exploded by an : electric spark in the case of the en\x=req-\ 1 gine, and so the whole bodily machinery is kept at work.
"MAKES" THAT HELP IN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 30 August 1906
MAKES" THAT HELP IN LIFE. Make your enemies respect you. Make the moat of your opportunities, they are valuable. Make your work tell; actions speak louder than words. Make your talents count. Gifts are given us for a purpose. Make companions of your superiors whenever you can do so. Make sure you are right,, then act regardless of consequences. Make your word your bond. 'It saves time, money and a lawyer. Make yourself do just the right thing. Good work is a splendid tonic for body and mind. Make up your mind that you will not be overcome by trifles; that you will conquer them by a manly and grim determination. Make yourself amenable to suggestions; they will help you to create new ideas. Without new ideas you will soon be in a rut. Make allowances for your employer. He Is often vexed with troubles you know nothing about. Make yourself more skilful than your tools; good tools mean little when given to a bungler. Make your employer respect your work. He will then be forced to respect...
ARE YOU UNLUCKY? Bad Luck is often Bad Management. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 30 August 1906
ARE YOU UNLUCKY? Bad Luck is often Bad Management. Why are you unlucky? Most likely because you waate your luck, aud ex-1 pect too much from It. The unlucky man is the man who leaves important things to chance; the chance turns out badly, though not really oftener with him than with another, and the result Is a crippling misfortune to leave only trifles to chance. Why must anything be teCt to chaucc? Because we cannot fii'd out and measure all the circumstances which will decide the events. If we toss a halfpenny It is not chance that really decides heads or tails. If we could only know the time the coin will take to rise and fall, the speid at hich it was started spinning, the i a certainty. But eVea if we cannot know ?.l\ the circumstances, everything we can learn about them beforehand will lessen the extent to which we must trust pure chance, and put the odds more in our favor. Nobody by watching the croupier at Monte..Carlo i so exactly estimate the speed at which he starts the ...

AN EXPLANATION. To the Editor of the News. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 30 August 1906
AN EXPLANATION. To the Editor of the News. Dear Sir—A good cause is not usually helped by exaggerated statements, so I desire to correct your report of portion of my speech at the recent social reform meeting. In mentioning the fact that I had good evidence that gambling was carried on in a certain township from Saturday night till Monday morning, I did not specify the number of hotels in which this had taken place, as my information concerned one only. I would further add that I regret my subsequent reference to number of hotels in that place, as thus, through an unfortunate slip, a clue was given to the identity of the township. This I would have preferred to conceal, not being in a position to make public my source of information.—I remain, &nbsp; Yours faithfully, CHARLES W. T. ROGERS. St. Mary's, Trafalgar, 28/8/06. [Had Mr. Rogers stated that his remarks applied to one hotel only, no misunderstanding could have occurred. He referred to a neighboring town containing thr...
