MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914

MELBOURNE LETTEK (From Our Special Correspondent). In marked oontrast to tlie scare jyiuoli last winter seat people in thou sands to tlia vaccinators ia the lndif foroaca with which the recrudescence of small pox in Sydney is vi«wcd .« here. Under the extremely loose way of deal- | iiij; with patients and contacts now prevailing the ohauces of the unplea sant disease extending its scope of ope rations to Melbourne are by no means remote. But familiarity with the menace aud the absence of a death roll in the contaminated oity--sufficiently formidable to arrest attention, have dulled apprehensions. Perhaps when a few cases actually occur here there will be a different attitude, and, let us hope, for the sake of the reputation of the city, that it will be more of the "got-up-and-get" order than that of the Sydney people, who with Oriental in difference, seem to be content that the city, of which they are so proud, should continue indefinitely to ba the plague spot of Australia.

THE SWEETHEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

THE SWEETHEARTS. tome Questions Asked by the Young Person and Answered by the Editor. Ito you -see the couple? 1 do see the couple. Is it a man and a woman? They will be when they grow older. Are they married? Oh, no. JHow do you know? They are too devoted to each other. Aren't married people so? Not always. Only so-so. Is love tiresome? Not before marriage. Why after marriage? There's something else to thiik about. What are they talking about? Music, moonlight, love and flowers, with a touch upon the unutterable, and the ineffable, and the inexpressible. Do they talk of house rent, and bread and butter, and clothes, and chil dren? Bless you, no; that's vulgar and practical. How long does a courtship last? Three to twelve months—more or less. And a marriage? From one to fifty years—more or less.. Then why shouldn't they talk ot the years of real, rather than the months of ideal? It would frighten them away from each other. Do lovers love each other more than married people do? ~ Mor...

REPOSE OF MANNER. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

REPOSE OF MANNER. The art of repose Is the most valu able of weapons in woman's armory. For without repose no woman can be a pleasant companion, good friend or successful wife. Sooner or later the annoyance oc casioned by her mannerisms breed& dislike, which will deepen as time goes by. But the serene, the gracious, calm, and smiling woman, brings a soothing and refreshing influence of peace with her; and her friends, her lover, and her husband know that where she is will always abide that spirit of cheer and comfort, of shelter and refuge, which is the true essence of home, of rest, and of untroubled hap piness.

NON-ROLLING VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

NON-ROLLING VESSELS. Inventors have devoted much time In attempting to discover a meanB of preventing shlpB from rolling without success, but it Is now reported that a young German engineer, Otto Schlick, has solved the problem. His device consists, says the "Sphere," of a. spe cially-constructed turbine fixed on the ship's bottom, which, when set In mo tion, counteracts any tendency of the vessel to roll from side to side. The Invention Is apparently an extension of the principle of the gyroscope which has already been used for the purpose of steadying torpedoes. The gyroscopa Is a revolving disc of metal which re sists being out of its plane of rotation. In the presence of the German Naval Secretary, experiments have taken place on a torpedo boat, the Seebaer. The new Invention, in addition to pre venting mal-de-mer, is expected to prove of great service to warships, at It would ensure a more certain aim

STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

STRANGER THAN FICTION. An English lady, while touring in Norway, stopped at a little wayside hostelry. Ascertaining that her visitor was English, the landlady expressed her pleasure, saying, "I am so glad, because I have a piece of fine fancy work which was left here by an Eng« lish lady, and I wish to return it to her. The difficulty Is that, although I know her name is Miss C , I do not know her address." She pressed her guest to take the parcel, with a j view to its being returned to its owner. The visitor said that to find the lady to whom the parcel belonged would be almost an impossibility. Still, as the landlady was so anxious, she consen ted. She made the voyage home by a vessel with whose captain she had become acquainted in earlier travels. He now told her that he had recently married, and would like to introduce his wife to her when they reached their destination. The wife having been introduced, the captain said, turn ing to another lady, "Allow me to in troduce my siste...

RUSKIN AND FASHION. Right dress la that which Is flt for the station In life, and the work to be done in it, and which is otherwise graceful, becoming, lasting, healthful and easy, on occasion splendid, always as beautiful as possible. Right dress is therefore strong, simple, radiantly clean, carefully put on, carefully kept. Beautiful dress Is chiefly beautiful in color, in harmony of parts, and in mode of putting on and wearing. Or namentation involving design, such as embroidery, etc., produced solely by Industry of hand, is highly desirable in the state dresses of all classes, down to the lowest peasantry. National cos tume, wisely adopted and consistently worn, is not only desirable but neces sary in right national organisation. Obeying fashion Is a great folly, and greater crime, but gradual changes in dress nronerlv aceomDanv a healthful aationa1 development .—Ruskin.

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

"The Dispatch" Published Wednesday and Saturday Judge Motile has just concluded a case at the County Court, Geelong in a practical, business-like way. The plaintiff complained that the roots of his neighbor's trees were destroying his asphalt paths, and upsetting his kitchen floor. That is a plain allegation, yet wlieij witnesses get into the box and be gin to maunder qnd meander, then suffer cross-examination and re examination, with all the nig-nag ging pn points of evidence, the re sult may not be ;Seen till many moons come and go. Facts are said to be stubborn things, but that is far from beirig the case in law courts. • Facts as 'presented there are really of wonderful elasticity ; a dozen witnesses may declare from the evidence of the eyes and ears that such and such a man was drunk. Then half a dozen come along and declare that he was not ; while a few others are perfectlj'- sure that if he was he did not display the usual signs of drunkenness. What, then, is truth ?

STANLEY'S HUMBLE ORIGIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

STANLEY'S HUMBLE ORIGIN. Stanley was by birth, a Welshman, and his original name was not Stanley, bat Rowlands. On the death of his father he was taken to the workhouse at St. Asaph. In his earliest youth it was seen that he was a child of no common order, and much was said by his schoolmaster concerning his extraordinary talents. He was first placed on a farm as a shepherd, and afterwards sent to a butcher's shop. Work as a butcher boy did not suit him, so he ran away from the butcher, and at the age of sixteen worked out his passage from Liverpool to New Orleans. On landing, homeless and penniless, he saw an announcement that a boy was wanted in the shop of one Henry Mortlake Stanley. He went in and asked for the eltua* tion. "And what can you do, my lad?" said the tradesman. "Anything that a boy of my age can be expected to do," was the reply. This prompt and intelligent answer interested the inquirer, and the youth got the situation. On the death of his employer, who had adopted...
