THE "STARTERS" LOT." [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
THE ' STARTERS ' LOT.' There are indeod few positions that are more unenviable than that of starter for an important running event. This was mildly demonstrated 'at the .South Franklin sports on Wednesday, in tho £50 Shoineld handicap. Four men, all 'iliei'fl,' were lined up on the mark, to light out tho final.' Not unnaturally, each. of tho sprinters was at high tension, and eager to get an advantage of his opponents in the 'jump out. v An un governable eagerness caused one of the quartette to'' spring off jast in advance of the pistol. He undoubtedly got an excellent start, but the assistant startir (Mr J. White) : gave the signal for no start by discharging the second barrel. For so doing he came in for a shower of hostile criticism, just for the rsoment, but it is pleasing to note, that since a large number of runners ? and trainers — both local . and from among the visito r'3, have waited upon him and expressed their keon approval' of his action. Thoy say it is the first time s...
GIRLS AND THEIR HOME [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
GIRLS AND THEIR HOME Who has not met the seemingly charming girl who is often described as being 'quite different at home.' She is quite different in the bosom of her family, because she is too coward ly to diSDlav h#-r npfMshnonn nn#1 h-iil temper anywhere else. Girls who are pleasant to strangers and irritable and exacting at. home, are a type to be avoided'and distrust ed. Home manners should be the test of character, and although it is easy to dissimulate, exposure will inevit ably come in the long run to the girl who keeps her sharp tongue for her own people, and silken speech for out siders. This caddie's wife was much trou bled by her husband's loose way of life. He could never have a good day on the links, but he must end it with a wet night at the tavern. So, to cure him, the woman lay in wait on the road one evening, dressed in a white sheet. When her husband came along, she rose from behind a hedge, an awful white figure with outspread arms. 'Who the de'il are you?' asked...
WHY POOR BOYS MAKE GOOD BUSINESS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
WHY POOR BOYS MAKE GOOD ' BUSINESS MEN. By Sir Thomas Lipton. The old adage that a man is not a man until he has known what it is to strive for a livelihood is endorsed by that great king of commerce, Sir Thomas Lipton. Sir Thomas is very decided in his views, it is a good thing, he says, for a young man to be born poor. For this reason: If his father is in a prosperous way of busi-' ness, the son mofe often than not en ters that business. The way is paved for him. He never realises the value of money. He may turn out a good business man, but the chances are that he will not, for the simple reason that being well off he will have no incen tive to seize opportunities as they come his way. Suppose, however, a young man is born poor and has to work for every penny he owns. Doesn't he re alise the value of money, and is he not always on the qui vive to make the best of his chances? Then, again, the young man who is born poor keeps green about him the memory of what he was once. He can f...
WHAT EVERY REFORMER KNOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
WHAT EVERY REFORMER^ KNOWS. That every reform has its day. That the people do not know what is best for them. That his particular reform is the next step in evolution. That the only trouble with the peo Dle is that they do not understand him. That the man who cannot see things his way is either a fool or a knave. That he can afford to be patient, be cause his position will be vindicated sooner or later. That he would be glad to help other reformers with their reforms if they would only help him first.
A Hot Bath at Your Bedside. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
A Hot Bath at Your Bedside. Mark Twain was censuring the ex travagances of the American multi millionaire. ''Just consider,' he said, 'these, new travelling bath tubs. I understand they're getting as common as electric . cicvaiuid, 'A reporter was telling, m'e about , them. He called on a cotton million- - aire one' Sunday morning. The mil lionaire received him in his dressing room, and after their business talk was over the wonders of the house were taken up. , 'The ' millionaire boasted about his Raphaels and hardwood floors, his elec -tric light plant and French furniture, his gold-plated plumbing and Gobe lins; but he boasted above all about his travelling bath tub. ' 'It's onyx,' he said ; 'a lovely, gold en shade. It runs by electricity, on tiny pneumatic tyres, smooth and si lent. Whenever I don't feel disposed to leave this room it comes here to me, filled, just as I like it, with genu ine Atlantic Ocean water, brought up from Coney - and warmed to 80 de grees.

Mistaken Identity. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
Mistaken Identity. A few miles from a certain resort stands a glue factory which, when the. wind happens to blow in one direc tion, proves a great annoyance, to the Villagers. . One of the visitors, who had armed himself with n bottle* of lavender salts, was seated one even ing on the verandah of the inii near an old country man who was evident ly unaware of the proximity of the factory. When the breeze veered the visitor opened her smelling-bottle..'' The ' air soon became laden with the odor of the glue. The old farmer mov ed to the far end of the verandah, but found himself no better off. Presently he tip-toed deferentially back to the' lady with the green bottle. v 'Ma'am,' he ventured, 'if you ain't .. taking that for your health, would you- ? mind putting the cork in till aftei' supper? I'm going home then!' In Iceland horses are shod with sheep-horns; and in the Soudan rwith socks made of camels' hair.

A WORD TO BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
A WORD TO BOYS. What makes a boy popular? Manli- _ ness. The boy who respects his mother has leadership in him. The . ' ? ; boy who is careful of his sister is. a knight. The boy who will never vio- ^ late his word, and who will pledge his _ honor to his own hurt, and change not, will have the confidence of his fel- ' lows. The boy who defends the weak will one day become a hero amongst ' the strong. The boy who will never hurt the feelings of anyone will one day find himself in the. atmosphere of universal sympathy. 'Be too manly and generous and unselfish to seek to be popular, be the' soul of honor, love others better than -yourself, and people will give you their hearts, and delight to make you happy. That is what makes a boy popular.
