Extinguished. A village fricket"clnb. which nev. by any chance won a match: was dita. cussing the appointment of a cap bin,, and a proposal to re-elect the old skipper met with fierce ornpsi. tion from a minority of the milembers. "He ain't fit to be a captain." one out-spoken critic bluntly declared "He'd the cheek to go in first every time he played last season, and with what result? He got no-. fewer than ten ducks' eggs!" "Hear, hear!" a few of the members cried. Then the old captain rose to his feet. "Not so fast, my friends." he dryl3 replied. "People ' In g glass . houses shouldn't throw stones: ,It's true, that I often went in first, and got a duck's egg, but not one of you that followed me stayed at the wickets long enouig to hatch it!"

CAN ELOCUTION BE TAUGHT ? [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 5 January 1914
1CAN ELuOUTION BE TAUGHT (lly .AHRCUS STI. JOHN). Teachers are but helps, the work is ouir own. I consider elocution to 1.e a science which,-like all knowledge,re veals itself only to the patient and devoted student. It is a great mis take to suppose that after a few les sons fromn someone who professes to teach, and no toil of our owns, we can at oince nsake ourselves mnasters if the art. In the study of all foreign languages we are taught to speak and pronounce correctly,and to give every word its. full value. Why should we think our mother tongue is anu excep tion? Visit some, nay, all our schools, and observe how the art if reading and speaking is-not taught. 'lhen enter a conservatoure of music. Observe there the masterly discipline, .he unwearied practice, the incessant toil of months of breatling exercises, to produce the voice. In our own schools elocution is utterly neglectedt ; in the conservatoire it' is conscienti ously taught and unremittingly stud ied. Why are our chil...
