On Account. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 September 1914

On Account. Peggy Newton had been a faithful household domestic for years, and did not grumble much when 'tier wages were occasionally passed over. But as time went on and her wages fell more and more into arrears, she ventured to ask something "on ac count." "Why, haven't I paid your wages lately, Peg? How careless of me!" her mistress said. "I'm sorry I .have no money in the house just now, bat here's a smart cloak which I've ceased to wear and which is only a wee bit out of fashion. You'll take it in lieu of wages, won't you?" "No, ma'am, I'm sure I sha'n't,'1 said Peg, wrathfully, eyeing the faded cloak. "A Peg I may be by name, 'but I won't be that sort of peg lhat people hang cast-off clothes on —not if I know it." There are two reasons why some people don't mind their own 'busi ness. One is that -they haven't any mind, the other that they haven't any business.

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 September 1914

MORAL REFLECTIONS. True manhood comes from self-con trol—from subjection of"xthe lower powers to the higher conditions of our being. The road ambition travels is too narrow for friendship, too crooked for love, too rugged for honesty, tootdark for science. Do not make the mistake of trying to forget your mistakes. Keep thera in mind, study them, and use them as helps to success. If you would touch a nettle without being stung by it take hold of it' stout ly. .Do the same to other annoyances and few things will ever disturb you. Music helps soldiers to drill and march. The tunes which the bands play are lively and merry, for as the music is so will be the march. It is possible to travel through life to the tune of praise. The habit of counting our mercies is as easy to form as the habit of grumbling. What a man loves colors his life as surely as a dye colors what is plunged into it. A man who loves money is colored in all his being by that love. His whole nature daily grows differ en...

FADS OF FATALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 September 1914

FADS OF FATALISTS. A great many people like to imag ine in their own minds that they are fatalists—that is, that from the mo ment of their birth their destiny lias 'been mapped out for them, and that :io effort upon their part.'however strenuous, will have the slightest ef fect. upon their careeis. If they are destined to he successes iu life, they will be so; if failures, nothing wlil prevent thorn. Of course, this way of viewing life, if strictly carried out, can have but one ending--failure. For it means .hat the Individual who believes in it must simply allow himself to drift w:,h the stream, trusting to his des tiny to land him at the right port, ami if that port happens to be the pert of failure, he would put it down t.i his plready-mapped-oui. career, and would resign himself unconditionally 10 his fate, without attaching any blame to himself. Hut, luckily for the human race a. largo, nobody is really at heart a fatalist, any more than there is really such a thing as a genuin...

Oh, some body should pay dearly for this wretched fiasco. "It's rather awkward," Brigden ven tured at last, somewhat nervously. "Who would have guessed that Here path would show fight like that?"
