Baths for Bathers. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1914. Baths for Bathers. As summer ater summer comes and goes the neeJ of public baths for Traralgon becomes more and more apparent. Yet nothing is done towards securmg thehl, al though Traralgon has one of the finest water schemes mn the State. Apart from health reasons, they should pay handsome'y, and the council would do well to 'give the matter their earnest -onsideration. At present the facilities affordea the bather are limited. The creek, with two or three f et of water, is about the only place he can get a swim, and this is not very alluring, but it is less so when all the school children get m, anda the creek resem?b c; a c'ay hoe more than a swimming bWth However, he must eith.r jump in here for tus dip, or go out to the Sandbank, which is a long way to go for a swim, especially if one has to walk. It wou'd be hard to find many towns ia Vlc'oria tie si:e of Traralgon without swimminmg baths, but ti. does not ceem to trouble many of the .r, sident:,, ho a...
THE THIRD DEGREE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
THE THIIIRD DEGREE. Chief Secretary Flabbergast was the name the big police chief found for Pren(ttrgast afte, the is ue of h' hard hitting "third degree" memor andum. For to say that Sainsbury. G'eeson and Co. we e flabbegasted, after the milk-and watery mild minutes of Murray, is to put it leeDly. They were simply flat'ened ou!, espe cially when Prendy added a "this cnrrespoindtnee must now cease" .mninute to cut short their vtrbositv. Really, the police made a very feeble and foolish defence. They had hint enough of public feeling, and only had to acknowledge fault and prc mise amendment to sali fy everyhcdy. But, instead of that, the. officers en tered upon an elaborate, labour?d and indignant defence of admitted atroci ties. No wonder Chief Secretary Prendergast snorted Of course, it i, common property that the Dower be hind the detective thief's pen is Sub Inspector D. G.

A Lesson On Contentme[?] [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
-\ L.ssOn on GonteritMneri, Let me tell you a fable w.iich mal help to teach a lesson on content, aent. In a room, there wL. a gold fish, in a glass giobe,. in water; an6 there was a canary up in ,,tage by tht ,indow. It was a very hot day; and the &h in the globe, and the canary in the cage began talking (of course you know in fables anything can talk). The fish said, "I wish I could sing like ;hat canary. 1 should like to be up there in that cage." And the canary, who was uncommonly hot, said, "Oh how nice to be down in that cool watel where the fish is!" Suddenly a voict said, " Canary, go down to the water Fish, go up into the cage!" Imme. diately they both exchanged places. Weren't they happy! Wasn't the fist happy up in the cage? Wasn't the canary happy down in the cool wateri How long did their happiness last, dc you think? Ah! God had given to the canary and the fish " according to theii ability." He had-given each a place auited to their nature. SThere was once a bi...

CONCERNING THE GLOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 9 January 1914
CONCERNING THE GLOVE. "How fond we are of using the glove for purposes of simile," remarks e writer. "For instance, to be hand in. glove with anyone expresses a particl. !arly close and intimate understand. ing between two people. A cat in nlove catches no mice: which mens. that work requiring skill and pr(ompt. ness needs very downright handling. To throw down the glove or gauntlel is an action of defiance, tb pick it r, is to accept, thle challenge. "To fit like a glove is a simile foi all that can be desired in the cut and ccmfort of a garment. To say that r man is closely gloved-is not to cal him a liberal person: and to remark "hat his gloves :are always lalge is t, .redit him with a generous disposition To give one's sealf gloves is to boast When we shr'ld say 'Walls havr oars,' Germans ray 'There is a glov' rn the hearth.'"
