THE LADIES' COLUMN. ABOUT FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 19 May 1888

THiE LADIES'. COLUMN. Br VIVA. - ABIUT1 FAILURE. Dr Gnthrie has said that sunocess in life depends on olvility, much more than on p'reeveranco or talent. As he records this as the result of much careful observation of men ahd things, It is probably not without truth, though most of no can recall Instances of men whose failure in life has only been equalled by their civility. Good manners oover a multitude of aine, but will hardly stand in s lace of capacity or pe severanco. In this prosperoeus land the total failure in life of any healthy man or woman may usually be attributed to his or her own fault. Some form of eelflindul" gence, in temper or in appetite, is gooerally at the bottom of a wrecked life. With ordinary capaolty and intelligence, man should succeed in ordinary aims. In luck, so much abnused by useucceessful people, I cannot bring myself to believe at all; and have a stronger belief in steadiness of aim, as a f.otor in success, than in talents, even brilliant ones.

A PROPELLER FOR SAILING SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 19 May 1888

A PROPELLER FOR BAILING SHIPS. The ' Engineor and Iron Trades Adver tiser" elates that there was exhibited last week in the Royal Exchanoge, Glasgow, a model of a four-masted stiling abip, fitted with a patoent feathering propeller suitable for sailing ehips. It Ia a well known fact amongat sailing-ship owners that much valuable time is lost by sailling veseole getting becalmed, when possibly a few milee' ateaming would enable them to get clear of the "calm belts." Many attempts have been made to overcome this difliculty, but so far without much eucscos. The arrangomont of the propeller put forward by Captain Magowaun to certainly a very ingenious one, and one which may deserve a trial. The machinery for driving the propeller has hitherto boon an obstacle, as she space taken up is so valuable in a sailing ship, but it is stated that this will be solved.
