WHAT MEN WILL DO FOR THE LOVE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

tfHAT MEN WILL DO FOrt THE LOVE OF WOMEN. For love of woman battles have beet fought, Jcingdoms have been lost, foi* iunes forfeited, and whole countrief let at sixes and sevens. Jacob was willing to serve fof Bachsl seven years. Launcelot pre ferred lore to honor; his love for th< queen was more to him than a seat at King Arthur's table. All the world knowe the story o! Cleopatra's bewitching of Caesar. Th4 world is filled with just such stories to-day, and there is just as much ro mance in our midst as there ever was., Because they don't wear Roman togas or suits of armor, or fight in tournaments, is no more reason tot j saying there is no romance than ther< ' would be to say because men don'( > use bows and arrows in warfare nd ' more battles are fought. The passions are just as real aa ever. It's merely the ways of express ; ing them that differ. j Men are quite as willing to sacri fice themselves for the fair object of their love as ever they were.

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For women, a capacity for teara is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Teara—warm and ready ones—are a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emo1 tion, a iort of liquid lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pas sion. "The woman who cannot weep la she who keeps up her powers of thinking, and whose facia? lines and grey hairs come readily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked effect in general tem perament. "Women who weep easily have cor respondingly light hearts, tcndar, de monstrative, and impulsive ways, and a charm which dry-eyed women lack."

FINE WORK IN SPITE OF SORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

FINE WORK IN SPITE OF SORROW, Ono of the anomalies of literary history is, that it has often been the lot of those men who iiave contribu ted largely to the mirth or recreation of others to endure a more than ordin ary snare of misery and want in their own lives. The most entertaining portions o? UU-.ra.ture have been written by men whose hearts have been heavy witl sorrow. It wss in the gloom of a mother's death, deepened by his poverty, tha' JohusoE penned the charming tale o? "Raasel&s." It was in the chill desolation of a bare and tireless garret that poor tiolfismith, the beloved vagrant of ; literature, sketched the brightest pic- i f'ires of domestic happiness the world l#t& ever had. it was from a sick bed, in sore dis treas and in a necessitous exile, that Tom Hood shook all England with laughter. The enchantment of Scott, the satire o£ Jerroid, half the gems of English wit aud humor, have been thrown out by genius in its most sorrowful mo ments.

DEVASTATING FIRES. COORAMOOK DISTRICT SWEPT 4,000 ACRES OF GRASS AND MILES OF FENCING DESTROYED [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 February 1914

DEVASTATING FIRES. CO ORAM O OK DISTRICT SWEPT 4,000 ACRES OF GRASS AND MIIvES OF FENCING DESTROYED Saturday was one of the hottest days experienced this summer, and the heat of the sun's rays was accen tuated by a fierce northerly wind, which blew with the force of half a gale during the forenoon. The highest reading of the thermometer at the Warrnambool Lighthouse was 99 degrees in the shade. The intense heat was responsible for a disastrous fire which broke out in the Cooramook district about two o'clock in the afternoon. From the particulars available it appears that the fire started in the vicinity of a quarry on the Hexham lane, and, travelling to a tent in which a quantity of dynamite was stored, an explosion occurred, blowing the tent to pieces and greatly increas ing the extent of the fire. Attempts were .made to ex tinguish the fire, but,' fanned by the hot northerly wind, the flames quickly spread into the adjoining I properties and swept through Mr. Jas. Lynch's holding,...

Aim High. "On one occasion." said an employ er of labor, "I was accosted by a man who was well known as a quaint and eccentric character in the town in which he lived. "He asked me to use my influence in obtaining for him a post as bookkeeper to a firm with which I was connected. " 'Why, Jim, you've never been any thing in your life but a messenger How can I recommend you as a book keeper?' I said. "'Well, it's like this, guv'nor/ ha replied. 'If I try for the bookkeeping job, I may get some job between that and being refused altogether.'. "I was highly amused by the man's notion, particularly as there is a good deal of philosophy in it, for. as h« said, when I questioned him on the subject: " 'My father always used to say— Aim high. You will probably bring down something only a little lower."

"On one voyage the sugar we had aboard made every one sick. Matters tinaiiy became so bad that we could not live below deck. I chased a big Newfoundland dog out of its kennel aft and used the piaue as a berth, while the crew threw them selves around the deck at- the immin ent risk of being washed overboard. The cook had to go into the hold oc casionally for provisions, and when he did so he iied a piece of cloth over his mouth and nose. After several such hurried visits he was overcome, and two other men similarly protect ed went down and secured: him with ropes and he was hauled out The hatches could not be battened down, for fear the cargo would spoil, so we had to put up the best we could: with the fumes until we reached port.
