DR. HOLMES AND THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

DR. HOLMES AND THE PRINCE. When Oliver Wendell Holmes was in England he found himself on one occasion at a "crush" in London among a great mass of people, includ ing several royal personages. He sat quietly in a corner, but presently feel ing a little faint, and observing re freshments in the distance, he turned to an elderly personage standing near, whom he supposed to be a butler of some kind, and asked for a harmless beverage. The supposed servant brought this with alacrity, and re marked: "I am very glad to meet you, Dr. Holmes." The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table was a little taken aback, and the stranger added, "I am Prince Christian." "Dear me," said Holmes, alive at once to the joke, "I have not had much acquaintance with princes, and, do you know, I took you for the waiter!" At this Prince Christian went oft into a burst of mer riment. "Where is my wife?' he said, "I must tell her this. She admires you immensely." Off went Prince Christian to fetch the Princess, and the ge...

FARMERS WATCH CEREMONY [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

FARMERS WATCH CEREMONY Among those who attended the open ing of the Victorian Parliament on Wed nesday afternoon were a number of North-Western farmers, who were not, in the ordinary sense, bidden guests. Earlier in the day they attended a deputation to Mr. W.Hutchinson, Minis ter for Agriculture, and Mr. R. Bloom field Rees, M.L.CJ., suggested that as they had cooie a great way, it would be a graceful act for the Minister to invite them to attend the opening of Parlia ment. "But our lamps are not trimmed," remarked one in Scriptural allusion to the fact that they were not in society attire. Mr. Rees and Mr. J. Menzies, M.L.A. scorned such trifles,and they co-operated with the Minister in fixing the eleventh hour invitations up much to the delight of the deputationists, who, in a body, attended the ceremony of starting the Legislative machine.

FOR MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

FOR MOTHERS. i To bring a child up in the way he J should go, travel that way yourself, i Stories first heard at the mother's | knee are never wholly forgotten, a little spring that never dries up in our journey through scorching years. . The sooner you get a child to be a ! law unto himself, the sooner you will I make a man of him. I Children need models more than . criticism. | We can never check what is evil | in the young unless we cherish what is good in them. Line upon line, precept upon- pre cept, we must have in a home. But we must also have serenity, peace, and the absence of petty fault-finding, if the home is to be a nursery fit for heaven's growing plants. There are no men or women, how ever poor they may be, but have it | in their power to leave behind them ! the grandest thing on earth—charac ter; and their children might rise up aiter them and thank God that their mother was a pious woman, or their father a pious man.
