Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
Throttle driving is an art which is not sufficiently practised. The average motorist does far more of his pulling up for corners and obstructions by means of the brake pedal rather than the accelera tor pedal. In some cars the throttle has a bettor retarding effect than others, and the light car in particular lends itself to this type of speed con trol. In fact, it is possible, as we hare proved, to cover an entire journey with out once depressing the brake pedal, and an expert driver, whose handling of a car is a joy to see, told us not long ago that his use of brakes is very slight; he reserves thein altogether for emergencies. This, of course, is carrying the method a trifle too far for the ordinary man. At the same time, if motorists realised the great saving which can be accom plished in tyres by driving as ranch as possible on the throttle, and resisting the impulse to press the brake pedal on all occasions when a slow-up is needed, they would pay more, attention to the subjec...

WHO DISCOVERED WIRELESS? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
WHO DISCOVERED WIRELESS? An interesting contribution to the weekly Scotsman," claims the nonor ot discovery of "wireless" lor a Scots man, m the following statement— We have the opinions of experts of all nationalities on the great discov ery of wireless telegraphy, but few or them have informed the world 01 science that such telegraphy was prac tised in Scotland by a Scotsman be xore Marconi was born. In giving an account of anv discovery or invention it is but right to give "honor to whom honor is due." The man to whom I refer is James Bowman Lindsay, who was born at Carmyllie in the year 1799, and died 1862. Not only did Lindsay suggest, but he also carried °^, .successful experiments in proof ot his theories. James B. Lindsay "was a man after Smiles's own heart, ana one whose biography would have sup plied the writer of "Self-Help" with splendid material. Certainly few if any, have accomplished so much dur ing a long lifetime of penury. All his life he had to pinch himself to th...

Reed occupied the chair. Recitations were given by Miss S. Louden (Scars dale, and Miss Schwartz (Smythesdale), and a song by Miss Causon (Newtown). The Rev. G. A. Jndkins, of Ballarat, was the speaker, and delivered a stirring address on the drink evil, which he said was largely responsible for the atrocities in Belgium. He quoted the example of Russia in stopping the traffic, and eulogised Mr Lloyd-George for his at tempt to put it down in England. The temperance people were up against a hard fight—it was a straggle for life or death. He urged his hearers to follow the example of the King in abstaining and refusing to allow it on their table, and to make this fight so secure that their children would not know the taste nor the power of it. He urged them to use all their influence to win the com...
PARAGRAPHS OF TOPICAL INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
PARAGRAPHS OF TOPICAL INTEREST. iThe Kaiser's birth-month is a very I appropriate one. Janus, who stands I for January, has always been repre sented as two-faced. [ According to the newspapers, the new West London Police Court is so I handsome and comfortable "that no one meed feel ashamed to be seen in it." There is, however, no truth in the rumor that all our really high toned burglars are now following their profession entirely within its ' jurisdiction. I Neither the German Emperor nor 1 the Austrian Emperor sent tele grams of condolence to the King of Italy on the occasion of the earth quake. Probably this was because they were feeling pretty badly shaken themselves at the time. Smith (reading his newspaper at breakfast): That's good! That's fine! The Blucher's gone down! His Wife: I thought they wouldn't be able to keep the price of boots up much longer. Does it say anything about [ladies' shoes? The bakers continue to protest ' their innocence, hoping, no doubt, that our hous...

DON'T FLY INTO A RAGE! [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
DON'T FLY INTO A RAGE! I know a woman who is the soul of good-nature. She is-bright, fascin ating, and pretty; but neither she nor her friends are happy for long be cause at the slightest provocation she flies into a rage, or rather she used to do so. When she found she was becoming a misery to herself and everyone else, she asked me if I could help her to cure the terrible failing. I told her that with patience and per severance I saw no reason why she should not at any rate greatly im prove her temper. I advised her to ask herself what she had gained by her outbursts of temper. "Your husband comes in late, and his favorite dinner is quite spoiled. Does fuming and storming unburn the meat and restore the vegetables to a proper color?" She could not answer me, and had not before grasped that every time she became unduly excited she invi ted a poison into her system which made marks on her face, injuz'ed her health, and that eventually she would be shunned by everyone because of her ...
The Life of a Buch Nurse. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
The testimony from high officers in the Army Medical Corps at the front makes it clear that in personality, as well as in training, the Australian nurse is above the average. But all the capa ble and all the brave nurses have not left these shores. One particularly able branch of the nursing profession—that is, the Aus tralian Bush Nurses—is described in the May issue of " Everylady's Jour nal," just to hand, and the tale arouses one's admiration for this noble band of women workers. The position of a bush nurse is one which has its hard ships, and even its perils, but judging from the account in " Everylady's Jour nal " it is one which has its glorious compensations,, and its humors as well as its sorrows. The article is illustrated with a number of very fine photograps, and brightened with many capital stories. . This is one of many special articles in the, May issue of this popular journal, which also contains an instalment of a first-rate serial story, with a complete summary of...

GOODNESS EASY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 8 May 1915
GOODNESS EASY. If one were to fix on the one great error which hass been the root of more numerous scions than any other, one should say that it is the dogma by which virtue is represented as a painful struggle, and the duties of men are opposed to their natural in clinations. It has been the main en gine in the hands of those who, dis trusting the coarser means of power, have rooted their authority in the minds of their vassals. The argument is plain and unanswerable, that if men are instinctively prone to evil, guid ance, if not restraint, is necessary to their welfare. But once show to the bulk of men that goodness is far eas ier and lovelier than wickedness, and that evil derives its whole support from the barriers intended to be rais ed against it, and the walls of our prison-house will vanish like the cur tains of a tent when drawn aside, and man will find himself the free and happy inhabitant of the magnificent inheritance from which he has been so long shut out.
