CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 12 June 1914
CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS. Until your have earned to control I your thoughts, you will never be able to live a godly and righteous life. As a man thinketh in hjs heart, so is he: and it is because the thoughts that we entertain in the hostelry of the soul are such worthless and vain ones that our words and acts often bring so heavy a disgrace on the name we love. Well might the wise man say, "Keep Ihy heart with all diligence, for out 01 H are the issues of life." I When the heart is right, the ear and I the eye and the mouth ami tlve foot will necessarily obey iis promptings; but when the heart is wrong, RUed with tides ot ink, like the cuttle llsh. it will develop Itself in the impurity to which it gives vent. If you habitually permit evil tilings to have their right of way through you. or lodging within you, remember that, in Gou'u right you are equally guilty with those who imlulgo in evU acts, becaUBo you aro v.-ithheld not by your fear ot Him, but by your desire to maintain your p...

One of their number was a greenhorn fresh from America. Him they left in a punt on a small tank, with a gun, and directions to shoot any ducks that flew over. Ttiev laughed as they walked an, for not a duck was likely to 'be seen within miles. The newcomer took the hoax very well when they told him about It. At supper that night he suddenly pulled a cartridge out of his pocket, that ho "thought he had put them all away." Soineon'e, of course, pick ed it up and cut it open. "Great Scott! What a lot of shot!" said the green horn, in amazement. "How many are there?" No one knew, so the young ster suggested a pool on the subject. Tncy all agreed, and a liver apiece was the amount put in, the whole to go to the nearest guesser. Each one wrote his guess, and when the shot were counted it was found...
THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 12 June 1914
THE VILLAGE CURE IN FRANCE. The French cure has neither wife nor family, nor even income or par sonage such as we should recognise, ills house is a tiny affair of four rooms, anil his income £38 a year. Xo more? Well, the offerings of the people may come to £5 more, and ibis is all. - - course, I speak of the Average rural cure. Men of mark and men of towns will always get a liear iug and an income. What can life jn such an income consist of? Noth ing hut the plainest fare, and life without pleasure—at least, without an artificial one. Xo annual holiday; oven his visits to Paris—very rare, bo it noted—are the treat of some generous parishioner. The Revolu tion destroyed the country seats of Franco, so he rarely has a squire to ask him to dinner. He lives, thcre iore, Willi and in the ways of the peasants. He is as much a member jf a caste as any Hindoo, and rarely Jo you see him walking with a lay man. Usually he is with a brother cure, or else ho walks along reading his book. Custo...

That trick softened his innocent young heart, and then came the terrible evening when Cis sle found him sitting in the ...
