Too True. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
Too True. There is a happDy mean in overy thing, It is said that a shrewd old lady heard her marriad daughter Bay: "If muiy husband doesn't do such and such a thing, he'll find himself in hot water," "'My child," said the old lajy, "a man is like arn egg. Kept In hot water a little whileo he may bail soft, but keepl him there long and he hardens!" Each high achievement is la sign and token of the wholo inatur's pos shility. What a piece of the man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the wholo nmain to be ulvays. The discovery of happinless may well be the great aim of wisdom; and we needs musnt be happy our selves before we can know that wls dom itself contains all.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1914. THE PREMIER'S SPEECH, Mn. Watt's epeech at Easendon con, taiuid no surprisees, This, perhape, is nob to be wondered at, Parliament is to meet for a few weeks only to com plate the unfinished work of the sesosIon A short recess will pave the way to the last meeting of the Houses, and members will then go to the country. In the circumstantes the Premier necessarily confined himself to a state. ment of the work to he done in the immediate future, and to an exposition of the general policy of the now Ministry. It has already been pointed out that the present Government is not materially different in its composi. tion or support from that previously presided over by Mr. Wstt, It is therefore not surprising that its pro. gramme should follow bthe lines of that of his previous Administration, N:'ver. theless there are some hobanges that will be welcomed by the m'ljority of the electors.

MEDICAL FEES IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 10 January 1914
MEDICAL FEES IN JAPAN. Many humaneo doctors in Europe give their services to poor patients for a moroly nominal fee, or even none at all, In Japan, however, such a pro coeding Is regarded not as generosity but duty, and no doctor in the "Land of Cherry Blossom" expects to receive any fee from a patient In poor circum. ntances. There is a Proverb) among the medical fraternity of Japan, "When the twin enomies-poverty and dia. ease-invade a home, then he who takes aught from that home, even it it he given him, is a robber." "Often," recently remarked a lecturer on life in Japan, "a doctor will not only give his timo and medicine froee to the sutf forer, but he will also give him money to tide over his dire necessities, Every physician is his own dispenseor, and there are very few apothecaries' shops in the empiro, When even a rich man calls in a doctor he does not expect that he will receive a bill for modlical services; in fact, no such thing as a doctor's hill is known in Japan, al t...
