BURNING OFF. FARMERS' OBLIGATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
—B—BW—M——W BURNING OFF. ——♦ FARMERS' OBLIGATIONS. Considerable confusion appears to exist in the minds of farmers and property owners concerning the demands of the law governing- the burning off of stubble or grass. The authorities assert that in the past but a very small proportion of those agriculturists who annually dispose of their stubble by firing it infringe the law and ren der themselves liable to heavy fines, with or without imprison ment. In this district it is the general practice to burn off the stubble, and in some instances the fanners do not conform to the re quirements of the law. Not in frequently, proper firebreaks are not provided around the boundaries of the paddock it is proposed to op erate upon, and the section of the Act, which requires that proper notice of the intention to burn 1 stubble must be given is not al ways complied with, but is honored more in the breach than in obser vance. In many quarters there is a belief that if a farmer desires to burn his s...
HINTS ON HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
HINTS ON HABIT3. * Get out of the habit of being poor. Poverty ig no crime, but It Is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and •olely for being poor. •Being poor is an extremely hard feablt to break yourself of, unless you begin very early In life. If you hava been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven. That'B why all the brightest and beat men are waiting. They don't want to -throw themselves away on this side of Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The use 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 Aeart Is very far from the skin. If, by any chance, you want to be really good, get out of the habit of being beautiful. Try, to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve It. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from me. Don't get i...

WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
WOMEN AND WORK Hi women who have not borne du ties to keep them occupied ought to igre some outside interests. The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to wards humanity are the busy women —those frho work for their living or for charity or are occupied with the best duties of all—motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business Voman with a calling, no matter how humble it is, has not the .time for the despicable pettiness that goes to make life a burden to all con* ceroed. The woman who works is inevitably a woman who is broad in her views. Her opinions are not riveted to any one spot. Her point of view is mov able. Her experience in the business mart gives her sympathy for other wo men workers. She has learned to ac cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have maifo «omathi&K out of life.

THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet we should be tempted to call it, not an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It is the Age of Machinery, in every outward arid 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 nov.- done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, Eome 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 Bpeedier, Inanimate cue.
TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. Boys demand especial care at the mother's hands. They should be trained to show consideration to oth« ers, and general good breeding. A lad who Is awkward, grumpy ana £11 at ease in the presence of visitors is a painful sight, especially when—■ as frequently happens—his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine ment of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not be their humble slave. Nor should they be allowed to tyrannise over their sisters. That is the way to make them selfish, arrogant and generally Insufferable.

WHAT IS A COBBER? [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 February 1914
WHAT IS A COBBER? — Mr. Read Murphy, P.M., paid Port Melbourne court his first visit on Monday, and being more used to the culture of this district than the vernacular of the suburban youth, was puzzled by the term "cobber," and had his education extended as the result of seeking for enlightenment. Defendant, one William Paton, was charged with offensive be havior, and the evidence of Con stable Morris was to the effect that on January 15, at 10.30 p.m., Paton, with fourteen or fifteen other youths, rushed along Bay street like so many savages. They had been kicking at doors of residences and then bolting. Defendant denied kicking at any door, and William Collins, called as a witness, said it was a 'cobber' who kicked the door. . Mr. Read Murphy, P.M.—Cob ber ! What is a cobber ? Witness—Mate. Mr, Read Murphy, P.M.—Meat! Whit sort of meat ? (Laughter.) Witness—I said "mate"—a mate, Mr. Read Murphy, P.M.—Oh, I see ; you were going along and met a young man— Witness—Yes, and the young...
