, WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. Others' follies 'eachl us not, Nor much their wisdom teaches, And most of sterling worth is what Our own experience preaches. -Tennyson.

ALONE I DID IT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
ALONE I DID IT. In Sti'ichlal, near Coventry, stands a building unique among places of wor ship. John Green, a stonemason, in 1810 laid the Iirst stone of the edifice, and seven years later lie comipleted it. In all that time he derived assistance from none, doing all the work with his own hands, until the church was ready for its interior fittings. This is the ,ly stone structure in England-and probably in the world-of which every stone was laid by one man. The building' acommodartes quite a large congregation, and the church derives a considerable revenue from the contri butions of sightseers, . who are drawn .to the plaqe through curiosity.

Since a very damaging report ap peared in the MAIL--a report which should. have squeezed all the metal out of any ordinary gold-lield-little ap parently has been written about this isolated spot. But talk about "lcnticu lar veins, eilurian rocks, paleolitbic ages, petrology," etc, hasn't had any effect on. the precioutu metal, which is shown by the fact that 11 men are on gold and umore might be, only they are not here.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 28 July 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "'lusticus.") Mr. Elwood Mead has been taking a large section of the irrigation settlers severely to task for gambling with the seasons. The gamble has not come off this year, and some of them are conse quently in a bad way. But there are others. These have reserves of fodder and are benefiting from their neigh bors' sorry plight. With the melancholy fact that there is reason for Mr. Mead dropping his customary urbanity and waxing warm in denunciation of the hit-or-miss methods, it is pleasing to read accounts of some of the successes in the Nyah Settlement which have been published recently. It must also be borne in mind that the season there has not been kind. The excellent position the intelligent workers of the land there are now in is therefore all the more creditable. The writer describing Mr. James Thwaites's vineyard, says it contains in acres, but at this time of year the gaunt trunks are devoid of leaves. Be tween the rows rape, tares, and peas are sh...

A damp autumn brought a cold, hateful , Siberian winter, which killed the poor and sick and aged, and in creased the severity of Lenore's cough for she could not afford to buy warmn winter clothing, and so, shivering overj her diminutive fire, wasted slowly.
