THE "OPEN SHIRT." [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 March 1914
THE "OPEN SHIRT." Australia's High Commissioner, in bidding the Commonwealth "good bye" at Fremantle, touched the weak spot In our industrial life with his customary keenness and surety. "I cannot help thinking," he said, "that we have been inclined to at tend to the things on the root of oar greatness, riitlher than the founda tions. We want to see our new stt tiers go into the country. At presmnt the tendency is to crowd into the towns, It is,only, because the fashion is towards high collars and office. I would like to see the fashion tend towards the open shirt." This, in a few words, sums up the question of land settlement all over the world. In a vast and rich coun try like Australia, it is strange that the majority seek a crowded city life; lured by the movement and glit ter, and attracted by the gent;el jobs which town offices offer, Our recent system of education has much to answer for this. The boy's energies and ambitions have been forced and fostered on the clerical side ...

THE FAMOUS CHAIN LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 21 March 1914
THE FAMW US CHAIN LETTER Sisteen years or so ago, a man "amed Griffin, mayor of a small town in New South Wales, started a chaip letter in the name of his daughter, with thie idea of endowing a hospital with the proceeds, The plan was to construct a 180-link chain by AliLs Griffin writing to three of her friends and asking them to send. her ten used postage stamps, and also asking them each to write to three of their friends to do the same, The idea wai eventually to sell the cancelled pons tage stamps received to a stamp dealer for re-sale to collectors, and to use the money thus gained for the hospital. The first three recipieete numbered their letters No. 1, the second nine numbered theirs No. 2, the third twenty-seven number d theirs No, 3 and so on, With the one hundred and eightieth multiple, the chain was automatically to cease, But the originator evidently went into the matter wholly without con sidering the results of this, arithme tical progression. As the scheme went into...

"Just before I ltf;," he said, "some of the bush bloe'"s intimated their intention of fighting for the possession of some of the girls on our station, who we had hoped would marry some of our "Los,." When I heard of this I was natura'ly con corned, and called the boys and girls together to discuss the matter, and see what moans could be taken to avoid the conflict. Somewhat to my surprise they would not hear of that, course. The boys, said that this pr:a. cedure was quite correct, and tht girls said the same. So that t'trro was nothing for i...
