In Her Extremity. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
in Her Extremity, ; (Written specially for The Hebrew Stan r abd,) By ' Rulf,' Melbourne. In the flickering shade cast hy the great apple tree which stood in her garden, a young lady was reclining at her ease, enjoying the * spring sunshine as it filtered mildly through the blossoms above her, and glancing in a desultory fashion through the magazine she rested upon her knee, ; while now and then she turned to glance up the garden path, as though anticipat ing the arrival of more cheerful companions -than were to be found in the silent pages before her. ... j The afternoon sun threw its scattered rays iipon the soft colors of her dress, and tinged her cheeks and hair with an added glory. The air 'was calm and laden with the signs of spring. No sound disturbed the stillness, save the dis tant hum c£ the busy city and an occasional faint rustling of the trees as a breath of wind stirred their, leaves. . .. ' From the direction of the house, however, there presently came the sound of vo...

Fix allyour thoughts on what you owe to others.

In the light of recent events, perhaps it is as well to left the matter drop.

His attached friend,; Mr. Benjamin DeGroen, who was waiting with Mr. Barnett, noticed an attack of illness, but thinking it was only an ordinary one such as he seems to have been subject to— since he required to see his medical attendant twice on the previous Friday. He did not feel alarmed till reaching the gates of the Monte fiore Home, when Mr. Barnett completely lost consciousness and fell. Some friends then assisted Mr. DeGroen, and: eventually he placed Mr. Barnett in a cab and hurried to his medical attendant's residence. Dr. 0 NeiU found it impossible to act other wise ' than in ordering Mr. Barneti to bed immediately. On returning to the Home Dr. O'Neill pronounced...
THE PROPHETIC DEW-DROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
THE PROPHETIC DEW-DROP. A delicate child, pale arid prematurely wise, wa-» complaining on a hot morning that the .poor dew-drops had been too hastily snatched away and not allowed to glitter on the floWers like other happier dew drops that live the whole night through and sparkle in the moo^ lisrht and through the morninor onward in rmnwL day . ' ' The sun,' said the child, ' has chased them away with its heat, or swallowed them in his wrath.' Soon after came rain and a rain bow ; whereupon his father pointed upward: 'See,' said he, /'there stands thy dew-drops graciously re-set — a glittering jewel— in the heavens ; and the clownish foot tramples on them no more. By this, my cln'ld, thou art ? taught that what withers upon earth blooms again in heaven.' Thus the father spoke, and knew not that he spoke prefiguring words ; for soon after the delicate child with the morning brightness of his early wisdom, was exhaled, like a dew drop, into heaven.— Richter.

The Ideal Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
Tl|e Ideal \\otr\e. The -idea 1 home is the one that ministers to theJneeds of all those who make it. It is f tithe place where sympathy, interest, intelligent ^un derstanding of even the moods of its circle^, inspiration, and, above all, repose, are found.. The ideal home ministers intelligently to -the: heeds of the spiritual and intelligent nature; -as well as the physical. Its development unto perfection depends on the combined efforts of - its responsible members. The ideal home was never attained by the efforts of one, but by ^he* co-operation of all. This does not mean that each shall fit himself into a mould. A perfect home is like a perfect mosaic, where each part with its individual difference fits in its place to make the perfect design. The corner stone of the ideal home is love ; it is love that is rits life ; love is its inspiration, its defence, rits. crown of victory. Sorrow, defeat, shame itself, are vanished where love has perfect work. '.' 0 world, where is thy st...
Mercy. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
Mercy. If the world would judge less harshly - Thoughtless souls that deeply : sin, , If mqre hearts w;;uld try in mercy For our God these souls to win, Better, purer, would the world be, And hard hearts would softer grow,. And more weary souls we'd lead back In the way that they should go. Though the sin may be the greatest . God or man can ever know We are not to judge the sinner, Lest our God should judge us so. And they suffer much believe me — And they expiate their crime : They are better than we think them, v c\ And are sorrowing all the time. Yet we often scorn such sinners, Whom we might save if we would j Oh, world, ye know not mercy, As our God has meant you should 1 Then try to help the erring — ... ? Try repentant souls to win, . - And you soon will love the sinner, All the while you loathe the sin. . —Edith Medbury. ?
Prejudice. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
Prejudice, Human nature has many things to contend against in order to rise to the true dignity to which a man should attain. Opinions are formed and become a parfc, as it were, of their mental construction. They think a certain way, and bring their minds to bear upon it, too often with a contracted and short-sighted vision. The more they think 4- their' way, the firmer they become convinced that it is the only way, and the more ready they are to condemn every other way. They thus become prejudiced, and prejudge a matter before they look upon it from all sides, or really understand it in all its bear ings. They refuse to listen to argument, and if convinced of their error they are too bigoted to acknowledge it. Prejudice destroys a man's usefulness. It contracts his ideas, and narrows his mind. He loses much himself, and many a time remains in stupid ignorance when he should be well in formed. . That man who says a thing is wrong, and refuses to listen fco any explanations or proofs...
A Visit to Newtown. (FIRST NOTICE.) PRINCE ALFRED HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hebrew Standard of Australasia — 22 October 1897
A Visit to Newtown. (first notice.) PKINCE ALFRED HOSPITAL. 'In company with oar esteemed co religionist, Mr J. A. Moss, we visited Newtown. Our first call was the Prince Alfred Hospital. In this noble Institution 230 patients are being treated, of these two are Hebrews. One is the son of the late Mr James Baphael. of Melbourne, whose charity and benevolence, were well known. The other is a Mr Hyams, late of Gowra and Tarn worth. There appears some lack in the communal arrangement for the caring of the Jewish patients in the hospitals — that is, compared to the systematic visiting of other religious jbodies.
