Mixed -items..'--. ? — ♦ — WJby^do people shake each other's hand in sign of friendship greeting? The custom has come to us from the -lim past, and originated in the fact that if you .extend your , sword arm to your enemy_you cannot,, very well .at tack him with that weapon. It was from this custom that the latter one arose ; and fust as a man extended his hand to show that he was not going to kill his enemy, he began to put forth the same hand to show' that his feelings ?were cordial. Originally, then, shaking hands meant ^,the: absence of hostility; now it means the presence of friendli ness. * * * NEVER NEGLECT A COLD.

French Elections. How They Vote and What They Spend. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
- FHIMS El€€tlOBS. . How They Vote and What They Spend. A most interesting explanation oE tbe methods conducting an election in Prance was contributed to the. Daily Express by its Paris Correspondent on the eve of the French elections. French deputies, of whom there are 597, are elected for four years. France, for the purpose of its parliamentary representations, is divided into ' circon scriptions,' and each constituency ^ prefecture, or sub-prefecture is entitled to one deputy. Every district, how ever, whose population exceeds 100,000 inhabitants elects one additional deputy for each surplus hundred thousand or fraction of that number. Thus a con stituency which has 99,999 inhabitants will only elect one deputy, while the neighbouring constituency with 100,001 inhabitants is entitled to two deputies, and, what is more, get them. On the Roll. Every Frenchman aged twenty-one, and who has never been sentenced for a criminal offence is entitled to record his vote. This vote may alway...
DELEGATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
DELEGATE. Ox Tuesday evening last quite a num ber of Mrs. Watson's friends met at the residence of Mr. O'Brien, the occasion being to bid her good-bye prior to her departure for Pittsworth on the follow ing morning. Dancing and singing was kept up until midnight when re freshments were handed round after which Mr. Bowey, in a few well chosen remarks, spoke of the high esteem in 'which Mrs. Watson was held by the people of Delegate, and how energetic ally she had worked whilst in our midst to further the interest of the dif ferent institutions of our town and how whole-heartedly and unselfishly she had always entered into anything con nected with the cause of charity. On behalf of the people of Delegate he wished Mrs. Watson prosperity in her future home and as she had always been deeply interested in the welfare of the local minstrel and dramatic co. he would call upon Mr. Ashby to make a few remarks. Mr. Ashby in respond ing said that perhaps as stage mauager none would be in a bet...

Clones -ontiis Ling. ' Now boys,' said the schoolmaster, ' what is the axis of the earth ?' Johnny raised his hand promptly. ' Well Johnny, how would you de scribe it ?' 'The axis of the earth,' said Johnny, proudly, ' is an imaginary line which passes from one pole to the other, aud on which the earth revolves.' ' Very good !' exclaimed the teacher. 'Now, could you hang clothes on that line, Johnny ?' ' Yes, sir,' was the reply. 'Indeed !' said the teacher, disap pointed; 'aud what sort of clothes?' ' Imaginary clothes, sir !'
Babies Hanging on Pegs. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
[?] As described by a recent traveller, Russian babies as seen in the homes of the Russian peasants in Siberia, are very unattractive specimens of human ity. ' I looked curiously at one little bundle,' says the traveller, 'which was laid upon the shelf. Another hung from a wall on a pear, while a third was slung over one of the supporting raft ers, and was beiug swung to and fro by the mother, who had a cord loop over her foot.' ' ' Whv,' cried I in surprise, ' that's achild!' ''Of course -it is,' replied the woman; ' what ehe should it be?' ' Haviug learned so much iu so short a time, I had an irresistible desire to inspect the contents of the swinging bundle. I looked, but turned away in disgust, for the child was as dirty as a pig.: I asked why the baby was not washed. It may have been impertin ent. ' ' Washed !' shrieked the mother, apparently horrified. 'Washed! What — wash a baby ! Why, you'd kill it !' '
A Little Child. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
A Little CUM. There's nothing more pnre in heaven, And nothing on earth more mild, More full of the light that is all divine, Than the smile of a little child. The sinless lips, half paTted, || With breath as sweet as the air, And light that seems so glad to shine In the gold of the snnuy hair. 0 little one, smile and bless me ! For somehow — I know not why— 1 feel in my soul, when children smile That angels are passing by. I feel that the gates of heaven Are nearer than I knew, That the light and the hope of that sweeter world, Like the dawn, are breaking through.
The Golden Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
Tlic Golden Bridge. Did you ever hear of a golden bridge Spanning a river deep aud wide — Oue bank all sunny and bright and warm, But gloom on the other side ? And out of the darkness many a face Wistfully peers with tearful gaze, Watching the gate of the golden bridge Through the weary nights and days. For, down to the river's very brink, Myriad children crowd the bank, Hungry and thirsty, ragg--d nnd soiled Growing like foul weeds rank. A.nd ever and ever the cry goes forth, Echoing far on the murky air — ' Who will lead us over the bridge Into the sunshine fair? Life has never a summer for us ; Sin and sorrow and stain are ours ; Who shall open the barrier gate Into a laud of flowers ?' But hark ! for methinks adown the wind Answering voices ring clear and sweet, And over the arch vf the golden bridge The pattei of little feet. ' We come ! we cKIdren born in the light ; (We have heard your helpless, sor rowing cry ; And the very music of our lives Is sad with your misery. The bar...
By JIM COLLINS, Convent School, Candelo. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
By JIM COLLINS, Convent School, Candelo. During our brief but happy term of School, life we naturally attach our selves to. some particular friend, whose feelings being like your own soon bind us together. This is the beginning of school friendship influences us through out life, we should be most careful in our choice of a friend. Theie are few who cannot have a happy influence upon others. True friendship is the brightest sunbeam of the human soul. What a comfort to a person to have some trusty friend into whose ears they may pour their cares and troubles, aud how peace ful and happy are the words uttered by a good, obedient and gentle friend to cheer aud comfort another's grief. Deeds, not words, are the test of true friendship. Our choice should be given to companions who are virtuous. Therefore we should never make a friend of the person who ridicules others, or who is unkind or envious. On the other hand our compauions should be innocent, truthful, and loving. If, then, we wis...
"School Friendships." [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
[?] JBy GERTIE JOHNSON, Con vent School, Candelo. Mutual attachment to any particular person is known as friendship, so if this regard is formed at school it takes the name of ' School Friendship ' — the subject of my essay. Great care should be taken in the choice of friends. Never associate with, a child ever known to speak ilb of God or his parents. These two things have more to do with the character of a child than anything else. Strange to say an evil companion gains more influence over a good child than a good oue over a bad. No one can hold intercourse with a bad person without becoming as contaminated as they. Some people often judge our character by our companions. Suddenly formed friendship often end abruptly and with bad results. Girls ai-e, I think, more apt to became friends quicker than boys ; but they should take care to ' look before they leap.' Friends are often gained by a little sympathy or by 'doing to others as we would that they should do to us.' 'A little word...
By GLADYS JAMES—Convent School, Candelo. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
By GLADYS JAMES— Convent School, Candelo. Friendship is a strong attachment exist ing between two or more persons. School friendships are such formed during onr school career. These may have an influence for good or evil, both during our school days and in after life. Therefore we should be careful in making frieuds at school, aud endeavour to discriminate between those friend ships likely to be for our mutual good, and — whilst being civil and kind to all — avoid those friendships that are bad, because we always fall into the habits and ways of onr friends, no matter whether they are good or bad. We should select our friends from those whose truth, honour, sincerity aud integrity we have proved beyond a doubt. Having formed ou.- school friendships it is our duty to assist and advise one another in matters of difficulty and distress; for, as the old proverb says, ' two heads are better than one.' The advice of a sincere friend is oft-times invaluable and at all times acceptable.
[By GORDON BLOMFIELD—Public School, Candelo. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
[By GORDON BLOMFIELD— Public School, Candelo. Is there such a thing as school friend ship. Undoubtedly there is ; but it is generally short-lived. A new boy comes to school and immediately some one makes friends with him ; for a week or so they are great mates ; but at the end of that time there are generally a few strong words, and a punch in the nose by way of a full stop, and here the friendship ends. On the other hand friendships are made at school which sometimes last a lifetime. The value of these friendships de pends on the friend. If he is worthy of friendship, then it is a benefit to both ; for friends can always be a help to each other in many ways. If not it may be a curse to both. It oil depends on whom you make friends with. But above all you need to be careful whom you choose for a friend. It is time enough to make friends with a person when you get to know some thing about him. Hurried friendships are sure to be repented of. Perhaps you make frieuds on sight with a st...

A SCHOOLBOY'S PROTEST. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 27 August 1910
A SCHOOLBOY'S PROTEST. ? « ? To the Editor. Dear Sir, — Allow me some space in your paper to contradict the essay's written for last week's edition under the headiug of 'Prominent Australians, Past and Present.' I anticipated com peting, but not seeing the paper until Tuesday morning had no idea the eom petion had started, wheu I was told by my teachers it was too la to then to write one. The writers evidently did not fully understand what was meant by Prominent Australians. One born in the country and who has distinguished himself by great achievements only cou'd obtain this title. Captain Sturfc, Mitchell, and Bass and Flinders were not born in the colony, so could not, be called Australians. Charles Went wortb, John Nash, Hnme, and Bnteman were Australians who gained distinction in the cause of their ronntry. Then again Daniel Henry Deniehy was a gifted Australian, aud] the first to ad vocate the federation of our colonies. Also William Bede Dalley, an Austra lian patriot, schola...

Mr. Arthur Griffith. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910
Mr. Arthur Griffith. Mr. Griffiths said that before com mencing to deal with the aims and ob jects of the Labor Party, he desired to make a few remarks iu reference to other things. The Selected Candidate. First, he wished to congratulate the Labor Leagues on their chosen candi date. There were in Parliament too many men like Mr. Wood and himself, with merely a theoretical, book-learned knowledge of the country and its needs : while there were two few with a prac tical knowledge of the thing. Mr. Riley was such a man. He had a sound practical knowledge of the country we lived in, and was able to serve the community in a practical way, therefore he thought it wonld be a wise thing to send him into Parlia ment as their representative. Mr. Wood. He did not want to say anything against Mr. Wood. They had entered Parliament 16 years ago, both as Labor men, and, although Mr. Wood had gone to the other side, and he had continued as he begun, he had the greatest per sonal respect for him an...

The policy of the Party was formulated by the people themselves at a great aunnal confer ence, while the other Party's policy ?was made by its leader, hence it should be the desire of every citizen to snb scribe to the Labor Party's platform' and that only.
