COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent. of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. SA Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of 6ft. 2in. That's not fall ing in love--that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
IF WE KNEW. Could we but draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives, See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it ;better, Purer than we judge we should We should love each other better, If we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motives,. See the good and bad within, Often we should love the sinner, All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seerh, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hindert. Would we pity where we blamet Ah! we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less .turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other 'better, If...

Presence of Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
Presence of Mind. In front of his Chelsea (Eng.) house Sir Thomas More had a garden and gatehouse, and, as there was a pleas ant view from the summit of the gate house, he used frequently to sit there, accompanied only by his dog. Here it was that he was found one a·fter noon by a wandering maniac, who crept upstairs and saw the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap!" he cried, and at the same time tried to throw him over the battlements. More had not physical strength enough to resist, but he had the wit to say: "Let us first throw this little dog over." The man immediately threw down the dog. "Pretty sport," said the Lord Chan cellor. "Now, go down and bring him up again.'" While the madman went down for the dog, More made fast the door be hind him, and so managed to hold the fort until deliverance came.

Knew Him Well. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
Knew Him Well. It was a contested will case, and one of the witnesses, in the course of giving evidence, described the tes tator minutely. "Now, sir," said counsel for the de fence, "I suppose we may take it, from the flattering description you have given of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. "Now, now, don't trifle with the Court, please! How, I ask you, could you, in the name of goodness, de scribe him so minutely if you never saw him or never knew him?" "Well," replied the witness, and the smile which overspread his features extended to the faces of those in. court, "you see, I married his widow."

On the eve of his departure from St Helens to Irrewillipe State school, Mr Lawson, late teacher of the local school, and his wife were entertained at the school by the parents of the children. There was a very large gathering, and a pleasant evening was spent by all, who, however, felt regret at the de parture of the guests. Mr James Dyson was appointed chairman, and he spoke in the highest terms of both Mr and Mrs Lawson. The former proved that he was an ex cellent teacher, and Mrs Lawson identified herself with every social function connected with the school and the district. They would be very-much missed by the children and the parents, but all wished Mr and Mrs Lawson every happiness and success in the future. Mr J. Pettingill endorsed what the chair man had said. Mr S. Pettingill, in presenting the guests with a tra velling rug and dressing case, spoke of the high esteem in which they were held in the district. Mr Law son, replying, thanked...
