TRUE COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 February 1914

.TRUE COURAGE. *TC !* no easy thing," remarked £ Aflntal authority, "to distinguish, be tween true courage and qualities srtiich may take its place, such a9 stolidity, lack of imagination, and in sensibility. ; "I once listened to a mail who, aa a traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and who boasted of the dangerous situations which he had faced while his compan ions had run away. When I came to know him better, I found that his cour age was chiefly a matter of insensibil ity and dulness of imagination. Had her realised his peril to the same ex tent as his companions he would with out doubt have taken to his heels with the rest. "Most c* us have laughed at the ex cuse of the timid soldier who com plained that in battle his legs ran away with him of their own accord. Absurd as the excuse seemed, there is a good deal of truth in it. Men may be cowards in spite of themselves. You may test this by a simple experi ment, Press your face against a sheet. of thick pla...

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 February 1914

FAILURE3 DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure In Hie," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the sufferer J can be held responsible. If a man be | lacking m natural judgment and- , ability then he must g > under, al- ; though even here bones ;y, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. ' ; "But laziness is by far the most pro- . lific parent of failure. It fs responsible for the lack of ambition, aud it is largely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who ! clrinli, gamble and neglect opportuni- ; ties.

OUTLOOK FOR LABOR. MR. FISHER OPTIMISTIC. Caraperdown. Mondav. Mr. Andrew Fisher, . who has been spending a holiday at Peter borough, was on his way back to Melbourne interviewed at Timboon by Labor workers. He said that the action of the South African Government in deporting Labor leaders was a violation of all law. He expressed surprise on learning that Mr. Scullin had stated that he would not seek re-election for Corangamite. • Only men in the Parliamentary Labor movement knew how hard was the work of Parliamentarians, but once a man was in the Parliamentary Labor Party he (Mr. Fisher) liked to see him stop there. Speaking on the world-wide outlook for Labor, Mr. Fisher said that there was much educational organisation work Jo be done yet in various cotmtries, as recent events in South Africa showed. He believed that the movement in Australia would con tinue to progress, and that at the next Federal election the" Labor Party would be successful. At the last election Labor had to ...

BUSH-FIRE TRAGEDY. PLUCKY RESCUER'S FATE. Beaufort, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 11 February 1914

BUSH-FIRE TRAGEDY. PLUCKY RESCUER'S FATE. Beaufort, Sunday. The accident which happened on Friday to Mr A. M. Hannah, of Beaufort, whilst he was assisting to fight the disastrous bush-fire proved fatal, as he died at an early hour to-day. When rescued from the flames Mr. Hannah was lying just outside Stewart's garden gate. No one seems to be very clear as to the manner in which he got into his terrible plight. It is known that he was assisting to fight the fire at the homestead with other men, and that upon hearing Mr. Stewart's two little girls screaming with terror he ran down the garden. The opinion of the other men is that he tripped and fell headlong into the fire, the heavy fall ren dering him unconscious. Being in a comatose condition he was unable to save himself from being burnt. Whilst the excitement of fighting the flames was at its height he was not missed, and was subsequently found in a half-roasted condition by Mrs. Stewart. When seen on Saturday evening, Dr. Jackson,...
