FINE WORK IN SPITE OF SORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

I FINE WORK IN SPdTE OF SORROW, i Gas of the anomalies of literary history is, that it has often been th;* lot o? those men who have contribu ted largely to- the mirth or recreation of others to endure a more than ordin ary share of misery and want in their own lives. The most entertaining portions o? literature have been written by met: vrho.'ie hearts have been heavy with •sorrow. It was id the gloom of a mother'.* ■death, deepened by his poverty, tha Johnson, penned the charming tale of "Rasselas." It was in the chill desolation of a bare and fireless garret that psor Goldsmith, the beloved vagrant of literature, sketched the brightest pic f'lres of domestic happiness the world ever had. l It was from a sick bed, in sore dis tress and in a necessitous exile, that i Tcs-'i Hood shook all England with ! ■laughter. ! T>e enchantment of Scott, the satire j ot Jerrold, half the gems of English j wU and humor, have been thrown out j b? ;euius in its most sorrowful tno dents.

DROWNING FATALITY. YOUNG MAN LOSES LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

DROWNING FATALITY. YOUNG MAN IyOSES I,IFE. A sad drowning fatality occurred at Stony Point Estate, the property of Mr. Robert Jamieson on Thurs day. The victim was Mr. Frank Pringle, a young- man 28 years of age, who had been in the employ of Mr. Jamieson for about two years in the capacity as gardener. The heat on Thursday was very oppressive, and Pringle and two young sons of Mr. Stansbury elected to go for a swim. Neither of the party were what could be called proficient swimmers, Pringle being able to "dog-paddle. A nice clear water hole was chosen as the most suitable place for a dip, and the three entered the water. They managed to cross the stream and when returning to the landing side Pringle was noticed to be in difficulties. Edgar Stansbury went to Pringle's as sistance but was immediatrly pulled under by Pringle. Grasp ing hold of a limb of a tree, Stans bury freed himself of Pringle's grip. Pringle then sank to the bottom. Word was sent to the station and Mr. Stansbury, ...

As a general practice, it must be admitted, we are not deal ing justly with such individuals. The safety of the nation is the supreme law. To maintain it, to punish wrong-doers, and to safe guard life aud property, our sys tem of jurisprudence has been sadly lacking in due consideration for tlie innocent man, wrongly ac cused.

UNHAPPY MARRIAGES. SERMON BY BISHOP PHELAN. CAUSES OF UNHAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

UNHAPPY MARRIAGES. ♦ SERMON BY BISHOP PHBI/AN. CAUSES OF UNHAPPINESS. Speaking at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Cathedral on Sunday even ing, the Most Rev. Dr. Phelan, Bishop of Sale, treated the subject of "Unhappy Marriages." He took his text from the Book of Proverbs, xix., 13: "A wrangling wife is like a roof continually dropping through. House and riches are given by parents ; but a | prudent wife is properly from the : Lord." tt ! Dr. Phelan said : "When speak ing to you a few Sundays ago on the Catholic teaching on the Sacrament of Matrimony, I said that divorce was no cure for the ills of matrimonial life ; that the facility of legal separation was an incentive to sin rather than a re medy for evil. Since that date a cable message has appeared in the daily Press giving us the alarming figures of divorces in America, where 70,000 homes are made desolate every year by the destroy ing angel of Divcuce ; and stating that a motion has been introduced into the National Parliament to r...

Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

Local and General News "it is about time justices of the peace were classified and sifted," Cr. Bell contended at the City -Council table, Ballarat, after hear ing: a report from Sen-const. Nevins that a man named George Turner had been fined 2s 6d for driving on the footpath in Ascot street. Cr. Bell went on to ridi cule the penalty as being absurd, | considering " the nature of the I offence. Cr. Holloway agreed, and pointed out that if a boy rode a bicycle on a footpath he would be fined at least double that amount. "Yes," added Cr. Bell, "and in one case no harm would be done to the footpath, while in the other it would be torn up ; yet the person found guilty of the more serious charge escaped with i a fine of 2s 6d. Cr. Hill express ed pleasure at not being one of those whof ought to be classified and sifted', and the next business was proceeded with.

Aim High. "On one occasion,** said aa 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, yon'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,' he 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 tha subject: " 'My father always used to say— Aim high.

A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 February 1914

A Day in the Country. The fresh-oomplexioned young police man from the country betrayed by his self-conscious air the disquietude he felt on first going on duty in a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity ot gaze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he waa not noticed, the new constable ap? proaclied the urchin. "Now, then," began the policeman, "whRt are you sitting there for all this time?" "Takin' a day off hi the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the species, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you gee the country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course," replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.
