REMARKABLE RECORD [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 19 February 1914

REMARiKAIBLE RECORD The diamond jubilee of the Rev. Samuel Harding, of the Portman street United Free Church Mission Hall, Glas gow, has just been celebrated (says "The Westminster , Gazette.") Mr Harding, in acknowledging the gift of a purse of sovereigns, incidentally re marked that he had never been---laid aside for a single day with illness, had never had a doctor attend him, had never partaken of medicine of any kind, and never even had the toothache. It is melancholy to think that this, which ought to be the normal state of things, is now becoming so rare that when it happens to exist, the mere casual mention of it is regarded as worthy of note. So happy a condition is certainly enviable.

They started off again across Channel at 11.30 yesterday with a'south wind of about twenty-five miles an hour gradually increasing In strength.
