Froen the schooners' deck I commanded a good height, and coult probably see eight or nine miles. There was not only the thickness of the Inand, there was the full broadside of the little ship herself from keel to waterway.

Cause for Alarm. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 28 March 1912

Cause for Alarm. "I suppose you visited all the points of interest while you were abroad," said one young woman. "No," answered the other, "we were so busy. addressing picture postcards to our friends that we hadn't time to do much sightseeing." The world is full of hopeless failures that could have been successes had they devoted to real work one-half the energy devotS4d to complaining. They say that a woman and music should never be dated. Most men would be good if they. lived in monasteries. I Light-hearted people are always on the lookout for sunshine. "Please see that we are called in time to catch the nine o'clock train In the morning," said a man to the "boots" at an hotel. "I'll put you down for seven-thirty. That will give you time for breakfast." "My good man," responded the vial. tor, "that won't do. Make it five o'clock, and then my wife will have time to drossl" A political speaker had utterly bored his audience. Suddenly a man.at the back of the hall gave a life-like i...
