FRUGALITY OVERDONE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914
FRUGALITY OVERDONE. Old Jasper Grim could never see The dark cloud's silver lining; In fact.. he always seemed to be Complaining and repining. He always looked for rainy days When fair mild winds were blowing; Re hunted out the lonely ways In which no crowds were going. There was no joy for Jasper Grim, So glad anticipation, The world indeed. appeared to him A place of tribulation.. He pinched and saved and skimped and so His fortune kept nn gaining;. Re thougbt of wild winds that would blow And days when 'twould be -raining. -e's now reposing in his tomb, A monument they've bought him, ut I would not have borne his gloom For . all his money got him. The First Burglar: Kin you'se git up da stairs wit'out disturbin' no one? Second Ditto: Pre been married four Years, an' praetisin' de trick on me wife all dat time.

ON MAKING ALLOWANCES. By Walt. Mason. "If you must. smoke in your room all the evening Mr. Todhunter," said the landlady, ")f wish you would smoke to bacco instead of tan-bark or lather findings.

THE PRICE OF FEAR AND HATE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914
THE PRICE OF FEAR AND HATE. Fear is the rock on which we split. and hate is the shoal on which many a bark is stranded. When we are fearful the jndrmient is as unreliable as the compass of a shin whose hold is full of iron ore. When we hate we have unsl'inned the rudder. And if we stop to meditate on what the nossins say of us. we have allowed a hoawser to befoul the screw. Reon your mind on the areat and sniendid thines yon would like to do. and, then. as the days go eliding by. yon will find yourself nnconsc;nnslv seizine ilnnn the onnorflnities that are re nnired for the fulfillment of yvor de sire. inst as the coral insect takes from the runhing tide the elements th+a it If we continned we get the habit. that is. we do the thin- without think inc. inst ?ns a matter of-course.

JUST AS IT HAPPENED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914
JUST AS IT HAPPENED. r (By BRUNO LESSING, in the C "Cosmopolitan.") You were told in the beginning that this would be a rambling, inconse quential tale-merely a chronicle of the facts as they chanced to happen. Life itself, you are informed. often progresses- in an incoherent . fashion, without rhyme or reason, and the philosopher who undertakes to grasp the phenomena of coincidence or the natural sequence of cause and effect usually has nothing but a head ache for his pains. A man endeavour ing to avoid a brick falling from a building in course of construction, takes to the middle of the street. We call this caution. Then, unexpectedly, the middle of the street caves in. What is the use of calling it anything? Lapidowitz, with a cheque for one hundred and twenty-five dollars in his pdcket, started for. the bankl the mo m~ent Nathan Gomprecht took the dog away. He knew the cashier of Na than's bank, and he wanted to .obtain money for the cheque as quickly as possible. Cheques were g...
A POPULAR NOVELIST. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914
•A POPULAR NOVELIST. By Fred M. White. Machin puts the blame on to the editor of the Arena, and the latter complains that he was grossly de ceived. Now, the Arena is an exceed ingly important journal, and, as every body knows. carries great weight with people of intelligence. It is a six penny weekly, and devotes a good deal of its space to the better fiction. So therefore it cannot be assumed for a moment that Cruchley, the editor, allowed himself to be ntade a party to a deliberate fraud on the British public. The fiction particularly favoured by the Arena belongs largely to tile cameo type - exquisitely polished sketches and clear-cut emotions and the like. There must be at least half a dozen novelists of the front rank who have to thank Cruchley for their present position. Therefore Cruchley, when he received that eloquent trifle entitled "The Liver Wing," written over the signature of Laura Jane Parlby, lost no time in asking the author of the story to call upon him. It was jus...

DO WORKING GIRLS CHOOSE LOVE WISELY? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 16 January 1914
DO WORKING GIRLS CHOOSE LOVE WISELY? By Laura Jean Libbey. -Mysterious love, uncertain treasure, Hast thou more pain than pleasure? Endless torments dwell about thee; Yet who would live-and live with out thee ?" It has often been said that the girl who works for a living has not an, equal chance with other women in" meeting her ideal lover. One very pretty girl said to me, "It seems al most a iniracle to me that three-fourths of the bread-winners get husbands. Most of them have little or no oppor t.unity to form the acquaintance of at tractive men. M31 ideal is a young man in one of the professions-a young doc tor, or lawyer. I nught wait until doeemsday to be introduced to such a one. 'OOf course," she went on, "a girl must be too nice to flirt. The young men whom my girl friends know fall short of the mental picture enshrined in ,:y heart of the man I could love. Time rol s on, and I must take at last. for ?cr'vr. one whom I know full well is not s:ited to me--or stand the chance ...
