A LEGEND OF CHICHESTE[?] CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
A LEGEND OF CHICHESTEB' 'CATHEDRAL. 1 An amusing case of imaginary.', ness-though, as will be seen, :, induced-was recorded by a fo. vicar of South Birsted, a village c:. to Bognor. Chichester is, roughly,:i miles distant to the north-west. 'G. afternoon in the latter half of Fekb ary, 1861, the vicar was sitting do,: to luncheon when word was brou~. that the gardener particularly wis'; to sec him for a moment. The l' was shown into the study, where . vicar joined him-a sturdy Suss. laborer, but completely overcome, h gard and trembling. "Why, Robert, what is wrong?" "Head so bad, sir. Fit coming c I expect. Perhaps you would give • a note to the doctor. Can't see jects, though I try ever so." "Can't see objects? Why, you fou your way into this room." "Yes; but I can't fix things at distance." '"What things did you look at?" "I was digging, and I looked up | wards Chichester, and I could not se the cathedral spire. And I shut ^ eyes, and opened them again quirc and I rubbed them; an...
Very Unpoetic. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
Very Unpoetic. A North of England pitman, while out for a walk came across a lady artist sketching, great prominence be ing given to the sky. The lady, no ticing the miner taking an interest in the drawing, started a conversation with him. "Yes," she said, "perhaps to you, as it seems to me, Nature opens out her sky pictures page by page. Have you not seen the beautiful flame of the dawn across the livid east, or the red-stained sulphurous islets floating in lakes of fire in the west?" "Why," replied the pitman, "Aa canna say Aa hey seen owt like that since Aa gove up drinking!" Every opportunity needs to be look ed at through the glass of principle. It may mean, apart from conscience, a chance of making money, of gaining social position, of grasping power; but if it does not pass muster morally it also means loss. Conscience is a man's best protection. HIe: Would you-lrather be beautiful or clever? She: Beautiful, I think. You see, there are lots of stupid men, but only a few blind...
THOUGHTFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
THOUGHTFULNESS. A little thoughtfulness goesa way in the home, as weil as i: larger social life; and the o re and intimate the assocaiatio greater the need of this thou'i'.I ness in little things. There ar I things so trying as the constn '' glect and forgetfulness of ,tr Many a greater fault, mnany ser-i error even, fails to gitve ";s?; actual trouble and produce s r;; discord in general as ti;e haihi1' never returning the thins that is rowed; of undue delay in ansr notes; of neglecting to periorm . little service needed at tile ona.a of any and all of those "trifes et as air" in themselves, but Which'i' the aggregate, make up no smaa sum of human happiness. In fact, there is no more exas, ting trait than thoughtlessness' trifles. It is even more exasperai than in larger and more signisif matters. The important affair well be spoken of and recalled d" to mind, but the unimportant on? feels disinclined to ask whether to: the thing that should have been dv without asking. Carefulness...

KEEP ON KEEPING ON. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
KEEP ON KEEPING ON. If boys should get discouraged At lessons and at work, And say, "There's no use trying," And all hard tasks should shirk, And keep on shirking, shirking, Till the boy became.a man, I wonder what the world would do To carry out its plan? The coward in the conflict Gives up:at first defeat; If once repulsed, his courage Lies shattered at his feet. The brave heart wins the battle Because, through thick and thin, He'll noti give up as concluered He fights, and fights to: win. So, boys,a don't get disheartened Because at first you fail; If you but keep on trying, ::At last you will prevail, Be stubborn against failure, Try, try and try again; The boys who kept on trying -- Have made the world's best men.

SCLOSER SETTLEMENT. I INQUIRY BY ROYAL COMMIS SION. A report from a sub-committee of the previous State Liberal Cabinet which has been inquiring into the administration of the U(oser Settlement Acts will shortly be presented to the Ministry. It is understood that the committee will state tliat the conditions on the closer settlement areas, as ieveal ed by its inquiries, ire fir from satisfac tory, and that its report will recomnmend the appointment of a Royal Commission to further investigate the subject. The commnittee devoted its attention particu larly to the dry-farining areas. These .llotments were limited in size, under the original Act of 1904, to £1,25) worth of land, though in subsequent acts this was increarsed to its present maximum of £2,500. Many of the settlers clainmed that the areas available under the .smaller limitations of £1,250 and £1,500, operating under previous acts, have proved -too small to enable a man to make farming pay on a scale sufficient . do tmainta...

THE TACTFUL PERSON. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
THE TACTFUL pERSON. One of the qualities of the late King dward which every writer has em hasised is the great tact possessed y the dead monarch; it stood him good stead in every delicate or ilicult 1position, and it won for him he affection and admiration of all. It oust therefore be apparent to every ine that to possess tact is a matter f great importance; and with that ;hought must come the inquiry vhether it is possible to increase our )wn individual tactfulness. Some say that the tactful person is ,orn, not made; yet this cannot be :rue, for we know that experience in reases the quality. It would be more :rue (and incidentally more compli mentary to our late King) to say that onstant attention to detail, constant thoughtfulness about the circumstan zes and idiosyncrasies of others, de velop the quality of tactfuliness. Some people are dloubtless born with more tactfulness than others, but we can all acquire the valuable quality; we can all serve an apprenticeship and develop in...

SCIENTIFIC BRICK-LAYING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 9 January 1914
SCIENTIFIC BRICK-LAYING.. What Mr. F. W. Taylor, a consult ing engineer, of Philadelphia, termed "motion study" of labor-increasing the output of the workman by reduc ing his movements on particular work to a minimum-created much interest at a joint meeting of the British and American Institution of Mechanical Engineers in Birmingham. Mr. Tay lor said that "motion study" was being more and more taken up in America every year, and he gave a striking illustration of what had been accomplished in the bricklaying trade. He said:-"Every individual motion of a bricklayer throughout the laying of bricks was scientifically investigated, with the result that the number .of motions necessary in laying a single brick was reduced from 18 to 5 in one case, and 18 to 2 in another. Consequently, on a particular job in Boston each man was able to lay 35) bricks an hour, against 120 previously. A good deal of prejudice on the part of the trade unions had to be rver come, but it was done in this way:...
