SECRET OF A SUCCESS. "Now tell me," he said, "what are your prospects?" "My prospects," I replied, "are ex cellent." "That may be; but if you wish me to sanction your engagement to my daughter, I must ask you to be a lit tle more specific. At present, all I •know is that you are at the Bar. What exactly are .your prospects there?" "Prospects," and I leant back in his armchair, "are, in essence, noth ing more than a state of mind.

DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914
disease in ambush. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. It is only diseases that are infectious that can lie in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home, and when we search the home for the readiest place of ambush we find it in the laundry. This is a statement of fact easily provable: the laundry claims and cleanses every week the clothes we wear, our bc\l, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker chiefs, towels and curtains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs, or seeds of disease so readily as these ; to ambush the ambushing disease germ therefore we must begin in the laundry. Next as to the method : mere cleansing is not enough, for some disease germs may j laugh at boiling water, and may even breed in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal with the disease germ is to kill it, because its life is its power to infect, and only j when dead is it harmless: so we must not ' only begin with the laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disin...
HERE'S TO THE HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914
HERE'S TO THE HEROES. We give unstinted praise to the man Who is brave enough to die; But the man "who struggles unflinch ingly Against the currents of destiny And bears the storm of adversity We pass unnoticed by. We've plaudits and • tears for him who falls, Borne down in the shock of strife; But a word of cheor we neglect to say. To him who plods 011 his dreary way And fights in silence from day to day The unseen battles of life. There's courage, I grant, required to face Grim death on the gory field, There's also courage required to meet Life's burden and sorrow; to brave defeat; To strive with evil and not-retreac; To suffer and not to yield. Some moments are there in every life When the spirit longs for rest; When the heart is filled with a bleak despair, When the weight of trouble, remorse, and care, Seems really greater than we can bear, And death were a welcome guest. But we crush it down and we go our way To the duties that lie in wait, From day- to day we renew the fight ...

A BROTHER'S LOVE Published by arrangement with Cassell & Co. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VI. The Poisoned Arrows. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914
A BROTHER'S LOVE By GRAHAM BROWN. ' Author of "The Soul of Lucille," "The League of the Sacred Scarab." etc. Published by arrangement with Cassell & Co. All Rights Reserved. • CHAPTER VI. The Poisoned Arrows. Angus Galbraitli sat down by the little stove with the words of Eric, his bi-other, ringing in his ears. "I love Elsie Bisset." He passed his hand across his brow as if to free himself from some op pressive incubus. For the moment he was too stunned to think. Never for a moment did a doubt of Elsie enter his mind. She had looked him in the face and said, "Angus, 1 love you," and that was enough. Angus Galbraith, the silent fisher man, was a large-souled man. Yet he had a nature as simple as a child's, and he would as soon have thought of doubting the word of the girl he loved as of doubting his own exist ence. And he loved his brother with a mighty affection. To him Eric was the perfection of manhood, and he had seen nothing of the feet of clay. "Oh, why did Elsie not t...

Federal Issues ELECTORAL SQUIBS On WednesdaytheLabor majority in the Senate decided to present an inordinately long Address to the Governor-General, asking to place parliament .in possession of the statement by which Ministers in duced him to grant a Double Dis solution. To the matter-of-fact business man all that may seem to be sheer waste of time. "We know the position taken up by Mr. Cook and his colleagues," he remarks, "theyhave asserted for manyraonths that there is a deadlock, that nothing can be hoped from the pre sent House. You may think their position sound, you may think it unsound, but there has never been the slightest mysteryabout the mat ter, so why appeal to His Excllency to tell us what we already know, and have known for months?" All which is sound, as far as it goes, but as a general election is close at hand, it does not go nearly far enough. The people of the less populous States will be told that the Senate is in danger.that the Cook Ministry has handed it ove...
