A sallow Individual in a faded brown overcoat sat down on a Btool at a railway restaurant the other morning ( and said to the proprietor: I "Give me a cup of coffee and one of I your expurgated sandwiches." "What kind?" said the proprietor. "Expurgated,' replied the other. "One of those vacuum sandwiches for which your establishment is justly; celebrated."

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of 'failure in i life," said an observant business man, 1 "so far as I have studied the ques- i lion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as a 1 rule, a matter in which the sufferer \ can be held responsible. If a man be I lacking in natural judgment and i ability thea he must g > under, al- ! though even here hones'.y, persever : ance and industry would do much to • atone for the lack of natural gifts. ' J "But laziness is by far the most pro lific parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and it is largely the cause of bad liabits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It is they who are extravagant, ! because the extravagant man is too lazy to save. The active, energetic ! fellow is saved fvcra these vices by • his disposition, and could not becomo ; a failure so long as he retained his normal character."

POLO. CARAMUT V. ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

CARAMUT V. ADELAIDE-. (From our Correspondent.) What may be termed a veritable brickfi elder ushered in the polo season at Caramut on Saturday. Hot northerly winds set in early in the morning, and by noon the heat and dust was unbearable. Notwithstanding such unfavorable conditions, evidence was not want ing to show that the populace of the surrounding district were on pleasure bent. It went the rounds that a brilliant contest of horse manship would be witnessed, and those who ventured out were not disappointed. Fortunately, at about the time the ,match- started, the sky became overclouded, and conditions were more favorable. Ominous sounds were heard in the distance portending a thunder storm, but only a slight shower fell. The lightning was very vivid and during the play clouds of smoke were seen to rise out to wards Green Hills Station where an alarm of fire was raised, in all probability caused by lightning. A good crowd was present, motors vehicles, and horsemen coming from all...

HINTS ON HABITS. I Get out of tlie habit of being poor Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. Being poor is an extremely hard habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven. That's why all the brightest and best inen are waiting. They don't want lo throw themselves away on this side oj Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The uso of manners is to enable you to do ex actly what you want without giving ; offence. The worst of all faults is to have none. Beauty is only skin deep. And the heart is very far from the skin.

THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 January 1914

THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet wfe" should he tempted to call it, not an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It is the Age oi Machinery, in every outward and uni versal sense of that word; the age which, with its whole individual might, forwards, teaches, and practises the great art of adapting means to ends. Nothing is now done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown aside. On every hand, the living arti san Is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate one. < i

DISASTROUS FIRE AT STREATHAM. 1500 BIGS OF WHEAT BURNT. A disastrous fire occurred on Sunday on Mr. Frank Beaton's farm, which is situated about two miles from the Streatham township.
