THE INTEREST RATE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 24 January 1914
TBE INTEREST RATE, GENERIAL eatblsfition will be felt in Australia at the news that the long period of dear money seems to be at last coming to an end, During the olosing years of thu last century the interest rate sank to a lower point than ever before known, Then came the South Africin war, and the demands of the ImperilI Government forits prosecution caused a distinct advance in the cost of money, In 1898 the current rate for the best gilt edged Recurity was not much more than 2j per cent, The return upon British consols and similar stocks was just a little higher than this. It we? the gradual but suro cheapening of the interest rate that enabled Mr Goahen, when Chancellor of the Exhbequer, to rearrange the terms of the Imperial national debt, The rate being paid was 3 per cent, He offred tho otock holdere 22 per cent, for 15 years, with 2j per cent on the expiration of that time. The operation was succooeful, for tho otate of the market was ouch that he could raise the cash and ...

PARM LIFE IN LOUISIANA, A group of commercials were suim aing yarns on the slubjeot of hospital. Ity, when one, a little Virglnlian with a humorous eye and a delightful drawl, took up hllis parable thus:- I was down in Louisana last month travellln' 'cros? country with S. J. Carey (the same being Stonoewall Jack. ion C. at your servlco) when we kind. er got lost in a mighty lonesome sort of road just about dark. We rode ilong a right good 1liece after aun. down, and when we saw a light ahead, [ tell you it looked first rate. We drove up to the light, flndiln' 'twa a house, and when I hollered like a lost calf the man came out and we asked him to take us in for the night. He looked at us mighty hard, thaen said, "Wal, I reckon I can stand it it you kin:" So we unhitched, went in, and found 'twas only a two-roomed alan. ty and just swarmin' with children. He had six, from four to eleven yeanrs old, and as there didn't seem to be but one bed, me all' Stony wau won. derin' what in thuid...

CHARLES DICKENS' SECRET OF SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 24 January 1914
H1ARLES DICKENS' SECI~OT OF SUCCE8S. I never could Ihave done what I have done without the habits of punctual. Ity, order, and diligence-without the detormination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time, no matter how quickly its successor shlould conme upon its heels-whlich Il then formed. Heaven knowa I writo this in no spirit of self-laudation, The man who reviews hlis own life as I do mine in going on here, from page to page, had need to have been a good man indeed if he would be spared the sharp con, sciousness of many talents neglected -many opportunities wasted, many erratic and perverted feeoollungs con stantly at war within his breast, and defoating him, I do not hold one natural gift, I dare any, that I have not abused. My mean ing simply is that, whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that, what ever I have ldevoted myself to, I Ihave devotedl myself to completely; that in great aims and In small, I have always bein thorough...
THE SIMPLON TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 24 January 1914
THE 81MPLON TUNNEL, Of all the great passceu in thb Alps, theoro is none more familiar by name than the Simplan, The very name somehow seems to be suilggestive of romance and of Alpine granrdeur on a magnificent scale, and everyone who his had the good fortune to traverie it in favorable cicumstancos will readily admit that it well deserves its character as not only the most famous, but one of the most magniifl. cent of tlhe many roads connecting Italy and Swltzerland, The roadl over the pass was the work of Napoleon, who, after the lDattle of Marengo, wished to have a military road into Italy. It was begun on the Italian side inl 1800, and on the Swins side a year later. The distance from Brieg to Arona on Lake Maggiore tis seventy-six nmiles. The summit of tihe pant, whiclh is 6590 ft, above the sea-level, is hemmed in by towering mountains, andl is crowned by the Hospice, a largeo plain atono building, which wan begunl by Napoleon, It was purchased by the St, Blernard Hospice in ...

MOTHER'S STRUfiOLE WORN OUT WITH POVERTY, Evidence of a mother's long struggle against poverty was given at the in. quest on Saturday on Fanny Donald, aged 70, a laundry worker, of 03 Here* ford road, Dalston (reports the "Daily Mail" of December 6), Annie Donald, daughter, said that since her father died 40 years ago it had been one long struggle for her mo ther to keep body and soul together.

The expenses of the Imperial Court are increasing every year, and it is Impossible for him to obtain any further increase in his civil list, which was fixed at £1,000,000 in 1910.

OVERWORKED NURSES LONG HOURS [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 24 January 1914
OVERWORKED NURSES LONG IIOURS A large number of letters have bees received by the "Express" in support of a plea for overworked and undor paid hospital nurses. The following is typical of many: As a certlficated nurse, with experl once both of London and of provincial hospitals, lot me thank you for taking up the hard case of the nurses gen eorally, Few persons really roalise what nurses' hours are, The night work is, as a rule, twelve hours seven nights a week, and Bank Holldays bring no respite, The aproaching Christmas holidays mean to nurses only extra work and extra expense in the way of helping to pay for the decoration of their wards, It is really a, horrible time, so far as they are concerned, At one hospital I was in at Christmas time a fancy dress ball was arranged for the staff after the "festivities" for the patents wcro over. B3ut, alas! every one - doctors and nurses alikeo - was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall tlhrough. I cannot understand why one G...

POR1TER'S Pl(iflIT A special conuittee of four' mnom baers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guu'dians has been appointed to makel a seariching iinqluiry into the question of the worlhouse porter's trousers, at, ter six months' constanllt service, were I)ronoLmuiod lIyond repair. Tn April on the advice of a Local G(o vernment Board inspector, the Battle guardians decided, to put William George Parker', the porter, into uniform in order to maintain the dignity of tihe ancient town. 'They invited tenders and voted £3, and in due course Parker apl)eared In all the glory of blue and brass, an ornament to the position he has held for ton years. But time awl fate dealt unkindly with part of his uniform, and to save the dignity of Battle he asked for a new pair of trousers., A few days ago the guardians met to discuss the matter, but, like Parker's trousers, the meeting was divided, and the trouser amendment, moved by Lady Mlabelle Egorton, was defeated by one voto, Lady Mabello Egerton, ono...
