"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
"BE A WOMAN." "iXea man"n" is an injunction which .mplics that one is endeavoring to ai:n at achieving all that is best in ma:nhood. No one would dream of simulating a person's ambition to ioftier ideals *by bidding him "Be a tentleman." Likewise, there should be no onence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, enables it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be marked off as having more of the good things of this world than the others, but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the humblest in the land who is contri buting something through her woman liness towards making the commun ity around her richer by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacri fice, and her love.

A Part of the Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
A Part of the Winter. A Chicago mining engineer tells ofd a law suit -tried in that city, -wherein J one of the w% nesses was an old pro-i spector from a mining settlement inl the North-West, a settlement situated about twelve thousand feet above the sea level, where_the snow drifts and packs and remain all the year round, "How long have you lived in Mar shall?" asked the lawyer, conducting the examination of the old prospec ter.

"Well," said the witness, after due deliberation and reflection, "I've been up there about eleven months."

A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
A PARABLE OF MODERN BABYLON. There was a boy, and his father said unto him, "My son, work to day, for the time cometh when you must leave school." And he said,. "Yea, father I will study this even ing." But a chum came round, and in the heat of "knuckle-up" the !es sons were forgotten. So on the mor row he broke down in translation. and was soundly swished; and more over, at the year"s end he got no prize. Years passed, and a great man said to him. "Young man, come round to my office in the morning and I will make you my hireling, and you shall amass much wealth." But on the morrow the youth said, "I will go after lunch, for my stomach crieth out for food." And so he dal lied with the flesh-pots till 1.30. And when he showed himself at the office, behold the vacancy was filled by a Scot, who pandered not to his stom ach-yea, even ol0e who bore on his 'scutcheon, "Do it now." Then in the fulness of time the young man loved a maid. and lie said: "Behold, she is very beautiful, and my ...
HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
HOW TO MANAGE A WIFE. "Never ask a woman to mend any thing." said the cynical old Paterfa milias. "\When I wanit a garment mended I take it to my wife. flourish it around a little, alul say, '\Where's that rag-bag?' 'What do you want -with the rag-bag?' asks my wife. Her suspicions are roused at once. '1 want to throw this thing away. It's worn out,' I say. with a few more flourishes. 'Let mne see it.' r - wife says. Of course, I pass it over and she examines it. 'Why, it. only needs ----' and then she mends it.
DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
DON'T WORRY. The Plague went forth in the land. and one met him asking if he could stay his cruel hand. The Plague an swered that he meant to 'be merciful; he would only take five thousand from the earth. Some time afterwards these two met again. "So thou art a liar as well as a mur derer," said the other to the Plague: "thy five thousand meant fifty thou sand." . "Not so," answered the Plague. "I Itook but my five thousand-Fear and Worry killed the others."
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Famous Suffragette. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Famous Suffragette. TIhe history of the past and present, my sisters, is colored crimson with the deeds and misdeeds of .Man, the Monster. He stays out late and comes home early. lie breaks open the children's money-boxes and bu?s Wild Woodbines with their dear little far things. In the olden days he would neglect his wife while he went to the tourney; now he neglects her while he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree. In those same olden days he would make of her a beast of burden, nowi he burdens her with beasts--what with his ferrets, his dogs, his pigeons, and his gramophones: In fact, blood is on his liands: his feet are on the crooked path: his eyes are alwas picking out winners that have a pain in their legs and his mouth is always occupied with a quart pot or someone else's half-pint glass. He is a wretch, a brute, a prevarica tor. and perfect wash-out. All the crimes in the calendar can be laid to his charge. We have Nero...
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. A great deal of nonsense, as it seems to me, is often talked about the danger of allowilig boys who are del; cate or suffer from some physical in firnity to face the supposed rigors of public school life. It is supposed in many quarters that a weakly boy, at ane of the big schools, has his life _:.de a burden to him by his compan ions, and runs the risk of having his health coniplertely shattered. If the school is carefully chosen and is one n which there is anything approach ing a decent tone. I cannot help chinking that the opposite of this is ilmist invariably the case. Boys have more natural good-feel ing than they are sometimes given credit for. and in a good school the greatest consideration is shown by the boys for a companion who suffers from some physical disability. More aver, the watchful care which a boy receives at school (particularly if the. medical authorities have been warned beforehand), coupled with the regular life and disciplin...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. Soldiers Three. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. Soldiers Three. When over a dozen years ago c.olfniel Tom Price marched through Mel bourne stireets with the first Victorian contingent for South Africa, he had in the motley group behind him a big burly solicitor in the person of 'Tim` M' Inerney, of whom no one would have taken much notice had it not been for the queer antics played by his brother "'Tom." who, as warden of the Uni versity Senate, was fairly well known to a section of the public. Besides, the occasion was an emotional one. and so the M'Inerney vagaries passed, es pecially as Warden Tomu was known to be eccentric, and on one occasion puzzled the A.\.A. authorities for weeks in trying to decide whether he was born at Kilrush or Kangaroo Flat. Years passed on, and all that the public knew of Tinm was that he had dropped Into a snug Government billet across the Indian t )cean. Then lihe came back as Major 11t Inerney, and became President of the Celtic Club, in which capacity he has been saying ru...

OCEAN LIGHTS. FEDERAL DELAY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
OCEAN LIGHTS. -4--" FEDERAL DELAY. Owing to the wreck of the French steamer St. Paul off Cape Moreton. attention has once more been directed to the complaints about bad lighting of the Queensland coast, and to the delay in bringing into operation the Conmonwealth Act, passed in 1911, to assume control of lighthouses. It was recently explained by the Minister for Customs (lMr. Groom) that the Act would probably be proclaimed early in tile new financial year, and that the delay that had taken place was inevit able, owing to the necessity of first of all ohtaining full information about the necessities of lighting such aln enor m!ous coastline as that of Australia. The duty of investigating the matter was entrusted to Commander Brewis, whoI, ill his leport, urged an expenldi ture of £3l00,10t,. spread over six years. IMuch of this large estimate of ex ipenditure was traceable to the fact that inl anticipation of the transfer of their ocean lights to the Comnmotn wealth, the States had ...

What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car riage were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in the corner. He had b en all over the world several times, apparently, and his adventures had been marvellous. "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We were in Central Africa, tra velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, when we camped, I had strolled off while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the heads of three natives who were watching me. What was I do do? 'My gun was at the camp. Teo turn back mean:t having pears through me. In a moment I -,ecided. Close by were some stones. Fretending I didn't see the niggers. I bent down as if to examine the stones; then. quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one founld its nmark. and the three natives d:'opped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." 'The...
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." At a certain railway station in thi North of Ireland a farmer was wait ing for the train with a donkey lit had purchased. On the arrival of the train at the station the farme asked the guard where he would put the donkey. The guard, who was in a hurry replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied thi donkey to a buffer and then got intoc the carriage himself. As the train was flying along at express speed Pat, turning to a com panion, said, "By gosh. boy, Neddy'r footing it now!' The average individual who sell: tickets in a railway station acts like a nihilist; but down in his heart hr feels himself nothing less than czar.

Ended Happily. As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she had been reading and soulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, "just this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered 'iaria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the naum an' the price of the medicine wlhl cured her." M[en always think a woman inter estfug when they hear she is pretty. but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.

STRATFORD. &nbsp; The annual Home Mission Festival under the auspices of the Presbytery of Gippsland was held in the Stratford Mechanics' Hall on Wednesday even- ing. 'The proceedings commenced with tea-meeting, at which tables were &nbsp; supplied by the various churches from Orbost to Mirboo, over 340 sit- ting down to the tea, which was well catered for by Mrs. John W'illiams, of Stratford. Though the number far ex- ceded the estinate, everybody was &nbsp; well satisfied with the splendid tea set before them. After the tea meet- &nbsp; ing a public meeting was held, the large hall being filled with an audience that was deeply impressed by the va- &nbsp; rious speakers, who briefly related &nbsp; their experiencs in connection with what had been done by the church in &nbsp; &nbsp; the city and the slums. Deaconess Henderson, of Scots' Church, spoke &nbsp; of the good work done by the girls' home and the kinder...
