PUNISHMENTS IN THE NAVY. RIDICULE REPLACES BRUTALITY IN MINOR PUNISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 5 June 1913
PUNISHMENTS IN THENIIAVY. t?;?? .? - RIDICULE REPLACES BRUTALITY" IN MINOR PUNISHMENTS. At one time flogging in the Navy was a by-word and the Service was olmarkable for the number and se verity of its punishments. It is still remarkable for its punishments-but by reason of their commonsense and not by their brutality. The change has been due rather to a spirit of humanity amongst officers than to oflicial rogul.tions. Captains realise, too,.that the best way to maintain discipline is to "make the punishment fit the crime." Excessive penalties for trilling offences defeat their own object. So, Instead of aP pealing to physial pain and acute privation, they makeo use of incon venience and-what is parti ularly dreaded by the sailor, but which does him absolutely no harm-ridiceui. Amongst the more serious minor of fences is neglect of duty. For this the usual punishment is that known nas "10 A." This includles the loss of "grog," and worl.ing during the greater part of the dinner hour,...

THE WORST TO COME. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 5 June 1913
THE WORST TO COME. There was little doubt about it; lie was not a success as a melodrama tic actor. Tie part of the dashing hero in ''The Mystcry of the Pickled Cabbage" did not Bult him at all. i le stammered over his lines, and sometimes even forgot what he had" to say; nor did he lay his hand on his heart a sufllcient number of times, nor roll hIls eyes about like a fish. -Whereat lie found mllch disfavour in the eyes of the gallery. Just before the crisis of the play he clasped the heroine to his manly bosom, and cried, in broken accents: "Sweet one, keep a bravo heart I The worst is yet to come I" Promptly came the voice from the gallery : "You ain't goin' to sina are ycr 7",

CURIOUS OCCUPATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 5 June 1913
CURIOUS OCCUPATIONS. 4-- Althouigh there Is nothing very un usual in the occupation of "hawker," there may be rather unusual success, as is shown in the case of a man who used to earn a precarious living as odd-jobs-man at a railway station. He gave it up to hawk useful articles in out-of-the-way villages far from railway stations, and so successful has he been that he now follows his calling on a motor-bicycle. Nearly everyone has heard of the "knocker-up," who for a small week ly payment undertakes to wake work ers, especially miners, is time for their work; but the individual who provides the "welcome home" is not so well known. When all the occu pants of a house are away all day at work they will often pay someone to come in just before they arrive home to make the fire and put the kettle on. f-Iow much comfort there can be in the sight of a kettle on the fire Sidney Smith well knew when he told his grumbling parishioner, "Thank God for the kettle on the hob."
