GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. Another Outburst by the Cantankerous Crank. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. Another Outburst by the Cantankerous Crank. Girls, you aro doubtless very charm ing iu your low-necked blouses, shorl skirts, and delicious stockings, yet I would fain point out one or two faults which most of you display—and when it comes to display, my cry is: "Losj stocking and more tboughtfulness." Girls, I don't consider your man ners are as good as those of your mothers. .Mother may wear a petti coat, like they used to in the good old days, and grandma three flannel petti coats, because grandma's petticoats, like misfortunes, never come singly, but both of them are polite. Of course, they may have had good be havior spanked into them, but, never theless, it is more than skin deep. It is my misfortune to travel a good deal in trains and 'buses. You, girls, flaunting your fatal beauty, haunt mo in those dangerous vehicles, and wi'.'i that inborn chivalry which lurks in every male bosom, I render you oc casional small services. / open n car riage door fo...
Throat Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
Throat Troubles. When doctors talk about the "naso pharyngeal system," they mean the entire mucous membrane that lines the nose and threat, all of which must ■be in a healthy condition if you wish to avoid the long list of ailments that begins with the common "cold" and ends with tuberculosis, and includes tonsilitis, influenza, croup, diphtheria, and, last but not least, adenoids. In young children the passages of the nose and throat aro very small and very sensitive, and they respond quickly to every change in the child'B physical condition. Whpn a disease germ attacks a sensitivo mucous membrane, the membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The immediate result is that the child cannot get breath enough to live on through the nasal passages, and begins to breathe through the mouth. If this happens only occasionally the inflammation soon subsides and the mouth-brenth ing stops. But if one cold succor another, as is the case with many children in the winter months, the mi: cons membr...

Another Epigram. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
Another Epigram. Once at a dinner at which Dr. Emil Ilelch was present the conversation turned on marriage. "That was a wise saying of the old Gr ek philosopher," said someone.

A Surgeon's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
A Surgeon's Revenge. Kew things vex a doctor more than to be sent for In great haste at an unreasonable hour, only to find upon arfval theft little or nothing is the matter with the patient. An eminent English surgeon w.^s called to an "urgent case" of this sort, and he found the. patient, who was of great wealth but small cour«g&lt;\ had received a slight wound from a fall. The surgeon's face did not betray hi&lt;s irritation, but he gave his servant or ders to go home with all possible haste, and return with a certain plas ter. The patient, turning very pale, said anxiously: "I trust, sir, there is no great and immediate danger?" "Indeed there Is," answered the sur geon. "Why, if that fellow does not run like a racehorse, there is no tell ing but that your wound may heal beforo he gets back with the plaster."
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. An obedient wife commands h«»r husband. Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but yourself. Obstinacy is a parasite, living eith er on a strong will or on great stu pidity. Retire into thyself, and thou wilt blush to find how poor u stock is there. A man has no more right to say an uncivil thing than to act one—no more right to say a rude thing to an other than to knock hlin down. Men are like trees; each one mur. put forth the leaf that is created in him. Education Is only like good cul ture it changes the size but not tin; sort. To know the pains of power we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures we must go to those who are seeking It. The pains of power are real, Us pleasures imaginary. In the active and vigorous games and merriment of children there are the most health giving conditions that can be obtained, because they are the wise combination of exercise and mirth. "Almost" is a dangerous word, ft has tripped up many a man who might have been...
DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. The history of the diamond mines is one long romance—catastrophes, skilful robberies, and the speedy real! satlon of colossal fortunes, the an nual output of the mines averaging several millions of pounds sterling. Early in 1867 a traveller named O'Reil ly rested a while at a farm in the Hope Town district. His host pre sently brought to his notice some nice looking stones obtained from the riv er. O'Reilly at once pounced upon the first stone, and took it to I)r. G. AtherBtone, at Grahamstown, where It quickly realised £500. This lucky wayfarer hastened back to the spot, but his searches were unavailing. Two years after, a fanner named Niekirk acquired from a native for £400 of stock a large diamond, .which sold in Hope Town for £10,000. This famous g&lt;?m was christened "Star of South Africa," weighed 83 carats, and esti mated to be worth £25,000. The Bul fontein mine was discovered through diamonds being found in the walls of an old native ...
WHERE NOBODY DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and peop'e without (that is when they can) has ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they do sire, placed under mother earth. Bret Harte remarked in one of his stories that Ue would like to Siml a place where, no one ever died. According to the Gembrook Cemetery trustees, the Gembrook district is just the place the American novelist was look ' ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no busi ness doing in the burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In tHo past 40 years there were only two in i temcnts, ;mu they were pauper case s who had strayed into the district, not residents. The trustees have accord ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery, that the local "planting ground" i.i wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict is ever going to dife- and give them a job. As a health resort recommen dation' this will take some beating.
Which Leg? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 5 June 1914
Which Leg? In a small town in the West of Scotland the town clerk, who was a bit of a "character," had the mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway ac cident. As a mark of appreciation and es teem for his long services, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with an artificial leg. which they did as soon as he was sufficiently re covered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was unfor tunate enough to have his other leg fractured in a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neigh-1 bor, was overheard saving— "It's a grey bad business for Paul, | puiv man; but is't his run leg or thi; | leg that belangs to the toon that's broken?"
