AN OBJECT LESSON. To the Editor of the Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 7 May 1914

AN OBJECT LESS9N. To the Editor of the Advocate. Sir,—The deplorable fatality thai oc curred at the Great Jix'lfcnded Hust ler's mine at Bendigo should bring home to members of the Bendigo branch the vital necessity that, exists of keening their contributions fully paid up, and the same sad happen ing should be a strong argument in favor of all miners becoming mem bers of the K.M.IC.A: It is pain ful to read that only lnvo of the seven victims of this holocaust were finan cial members of the organisation. The liendigo branch pays the relatives of members who meet with fatal acci dents the sum of £100, and, if reports be correct, only two of the ill-fafcd seven were linancial at the time of the accident. Surely, human obstin acy or shortsightedness could do no more foolish thing than to neglect to keep alive membership in an organi sation, which is of such a vast 'Dene tit in time of accident, fatal or other wise. Wisdom is very often gained by the sad experiences of othfers. So. the...

AN INTERESTING LECTURE, .■Oil Tuesday evening Mr Broome Smith, l'.K.G.S:, West African Mis sionary, who preached at Christ Church on Sunday, and conducted a missionary exhibition in the school Hall on.Monday night, continued the latter. He also delivered a lantern lecture, in •which he held the in terest and sympathy of a large audi ence by his vivid relation of . ex citing and informative incidents, dur ing: his years of servicc as a mis sioner in West Africa. Some of his experiences were vfery sad, as for instance, when lie had to bind up the wounds of a mere lad, who had had a huud and a foot cut off by Belgian State officials, during one of their raids on a native village, -whose inhabitants had been unable to raise the amount of rubbejr toll levied upon them by the Belgians.
