JOY OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 22 October 1914

JOY OF LIFE. When life is nil sunshine and laughter, And happiness sparkles like wine, Why fret about what may come after, Or dwell with regret on "Ian;; syne"? Drink deep of the goblet of gladness, Let youth have its fling while you may; To-morrow may bring with it sadness, So take "all it's worth" front to day! So long as the glad sun is shining, So long as the stars glimmer bright, 'Twcrc folly to waste in repining The hours that were made for de light. So long ns you hear the birds singing, So long as fair flowers bloom in Slay, Lot voices with laughter be ringing And work be the best form of "play"!

A fire ' broke out in McLeod's paddock. North Devon, but fortunately no great damage was done. A culvert . was destroyed on the road. The country around Woodslde and. I Darrinian hav'ng been so completely • dsvustated last summer, the fires that broke cut in those localities on Sunday did not create tho least con cern. There was little grass ts» burn, and the scrub that it tackled I was-batter out of the way. The I shire council will have to re-place . several culverts. j Fortuuately, perhaps it was, that the country was well burnt early | in the year, otherwise there might 'have boon more serious fires.
