Camp Fire Philosophy OFF THE BEATEN TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
Camp Fire Philosophy okf tnio hi:ati:n ti;a&lt;k. (By an Ancient Angler.) The desire to get away from the beaten track of every day affairs, and far from the madding crowd of the usual holiday resorts, for rea sons, varying with the individual, such as away from "the matchmak ing mammas," the "Tin Gods" and "Gandy Josses" of society, "the cigarette sucking Johnnies whose hats," the "giggling Jennies whose vacant laugh betrays the empty mind" to no reason at all were the primary causes of a party, com prising some very eligible, and sev eral very ancient, cronies and kin dred spirits, including a handsome young bachelor medico from Collins street, a_ crotchety editor, of a Syd ney daily ..newspaper, a bald-headed barrister—minus his wig—a heavy weight head manager of an Austra lasian bank, a city auctioneer, a Bro ken Hill broker, a gay young Scotch man, two big boys, and my eccentric self, selecting Doughboy Island as "the spot" for a prolonged holiday.

Homeless. Most mi-ii are homoles.:, and Loss happy than they could be; .Musi married nii'ii, we understand, Am home less than they should be. A young Japanese compositor, em ployed or. a Japanese paper in -New York, was riding down town in a city hall train recently. lie was engrossed in his morning paper, and paid little attention to the other passengers. But a fresh-looking young man, who sat next (o hint, and who had been eyeing him all along, suddenly asked, "What. sorL of a 'nese' are you, any way; a Chinese or a .Japanese?" The little Jap was not caught nap ping. Quick as a wink, lie replied: "What sort of a 'key' are you, any way; a monkey, a donkey or a Yan kee?" The father had listened patiently whilst his wife's relations discussed the naming of the baby. Dorothea, Pauline, Carmelita, and Esmeralda had been suggested. At last the patient parent broke in upon tho conference. "Excuse me," he said, "but wouldn't it be as well to remember that you are naming a baby and not a t...
FISH THAT EAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
FISH THAT EAT MEN. Weird stories of lish monstrosities have been told by many disciples of I'aal; AYalton; but it has remained for Mr. Roosevelt to toil us of some tinny freaks whose performances will want a lot. of beating. During his recent lecture, at. a meeting of the Royal Geographical Society, on his South American trip, he related thai he came across one kind of fish, no larger than a trout that bit. off one of his party's little toes, took a piece out of another man's leg, ami the tips off two dogs' tails—a fitting companion, apparent ly, to the fish that went blrd-nestim drove the mother bird si way, and was found wagging its tail over iho cdc. of the1 nest while gobbling up tin. eggs. .Mr. Roosevelt also mentioned an other list)—-a ;>f t. cattish --which was found with a monkey inside it. i'iie fish, it appears, had jumped am; caught the monkey when it hail climbed down a branch to drink. Very extraordinary, too, is a horrible deep-sea angler lish, exhibited at the Roya...
MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
MAXIMS FOR BUSINESS MEN. One constantly hoars the expression that. So-and-so failed in his business be cause 'lie bit oil more than he could chew"; in other words, took on a big ger job than lie could manage. In the opinion, however, of Mr. Herbert Cas son, who has been speaking on behalf of the convention of business men which was held at Toronto at the end of last month, an excellent maxim for the business man to bear in mind is —"Bite off more than you can chew— and chew it." Among other maxims which he gave are tho following; — System is not everything. You can go to the bad systematically. An advertising man is a saver built, like a spender, just as tin oyster is a lisli built like a nut. Tho right placo to cut prices is in the factory. The man who cuts price:; in the shop does so because he has not the brains to sell his goods. The development of the motor in dustry is due to tho skill of tho sales men, who were selling ears for seven year.-! before the manufacturers knew how ...
SONG OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
SONG OF HOPE. There is a pill for every ache, a sillvo for every sore, so let's rejoice anil never make a rumpus any more. There Is a poultice for each head, for every pain some dope;'until the doc tors say we're dead, no one should give up hope. I knew a man once, on a time who had 110 store of cash; he said this world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so he got a neigh bor's axe, and by the old horse trough, with sundry strong and skil ful whacks lie chopped his head piece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads. announcing that this knave had fall en heir to heaps of scads, but he was in his grave. The darkest hour, us Homer said, is just before the Dawn; there's often comfort just ahead when all tile hope seems gone, There is a syrup for each cough, :: lance fur every boil, so never think in shuffle off some yards of mortal coil. Misfortune hits us now and then, but if we bravely grin, she'll go pur suing weaker men and push their faces in. There is a cure for every ...
LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
LONDON'S CLEVEREST COOK. I It is more satisfactory to have an accomplished woman cook Ulan an accomplished chef in the kitchon, for l.he women are more; resourceful, are less apt to make dill'icultics, and grumble less at their work. On the other hand, however, they are, as a rule, more extravagant, than the men cooks, for they do not understand the economic side of kitchen finance. It, sounds very revolutionary, ami quite contrary to the accepted view of men and women cooks. Neverthe less. that is the opinion of Mrs. ltosa Lewis, tl\" world's cleverest, cook chef- -ihe woman who lias invenUd .ii-shi-i: for royalty, whose services are in great demand when famous host esses art' cniertainiiiK royal rupsss. and ho lias contracted for many o. the feasts for great Government di - partmont.'. .She hss •-joked ilinni rs for the regiments .-i '.he Household I'avalry. win 11 &lt; h > eiiti'rtaineil .. sovereign. and ai one lime l'olii ! i)11• kitchen of White's Club, while in ::i...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 1 October 1914
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor. Sir,—No importance is to be at tached to the cables that have ap peared In the press about the Sinn Fein Manifesto in Ireland. Sinn Fein mean3 "Ourselves," and the Sinn Fein movement was a breaking away by hot young bloods from the slow constitutional methods of the Irish Parliamentary Party. It was simply a toy revolution and was kil led by ridicule. The Sinn Feiners coolly ignored British rule in Ire land, printing their own postage stamps, establishing their own Courts of Justice, appointing their own magistrates, etc. The boycott of all foreign manufactures wa:; about the only sensible plank In their platform. In their young days (about six years ago) they ran a daily paper, which soon was re duced to a weekly, and this soon died. They ran a candidate for Parliament, but he was ignoniinious ly defeated. At- present the Sinn Feiners are a negligible quantity and only; capablo of making noises. Nationalist Ireland is to a man be hind Redmond...

"Where do all those millions go?" h" demanded. "It all .Roes for insurance and old age pensions, and the Navy, and so on," .Mrs Lloyd George replied. Hut 1kt antagonist had all the fig ures at his finger-ends. So many million, he said, went for old-age pen sions, so many to the Navy, so many for insurance, and so on.
