FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure la /ife," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques-. tion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as a rule, a matter in which the sufferer can be held responsible. If a man be lacking in natural judgment and ability then he must g > under, al though even here hones ".y, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro lific pareut of failure. It is responsible 1 for the lack or auiLi'ioa, and it is ! largely the . causa of bad habits and dissipation. If. is the lazy men who ■ drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. U is ''ho are X^cravagant, because the .. • •..rant man is too lazy to save. i ae active, energetic i fellow is saved from these vices by j his disposition, and could not become a failure so long as he retained his normal character."

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. Writing on the subject of tea, coffee and cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says:— [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

* DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. Writing on the subject of tea, coffee fend cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says:— Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac tically the same stimulating active principle. The difference between tea and coffee is a difference of aroma, The difference between cocoa and tho other two is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa is a positive food, which the others are aot. Always, I think, we may conclude that the East India teas rather more "excitant" than the •' vina teas, in all teas the thein (ac •'£ principle) is combined with tan ■ I'i acid; and our object should be to rirink the one (thein) without the oth njr (tannin, as it is loosely called). Therefore, tea should not infuse too U-ng—what is called "stand." Recol lect that very hard water will not make very good tea without prepara tion. Milk and sugar make a food of it. And tea made with boiling water and infused for five minutes is H most excellent pick-me-up in condi tions of temporary exhaustion. Al ways m...
