PEN-POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 April 1914
PEN-POINTS. None are so blind as those who can not s''. It takes a good deal oa philosophy to take things as they come, but it reqrluires more to part with things as zhey go. All women are two-faced-before preparing their toilettes and after. Truths which have to be whispered are usually false. Heights, whether physical or men tal, usually induce dizziness. 'rTie Austin Hospital for Incmurabls, the one institution in the SLaty which undertakes the cafeful tending and the tender relieving of the most pitl able cases oL physical human suffer ing which can possibly be.conceived. What that endurance must be is not possibly known to the outsider. There are bald facts that cover a. world of hidden meaning. Sooner or later the strain becomes too much for those who work in the hospital, and a 'breakdown comes. The nerres go; no woman can stand for very long the sight of the ghastly torture of the cancer wards, and the utter hopeless ness of thile fight where pain and death must inevitably b...

DANDENONG TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 April 1914
DANDENOKC TRAMWAY. At die Melbourne County Court on Monday, before Judge Eagleson, R E. Whetham, of Oakleigh, proceeded against the Dandenong shire council claiming L150 for damages alleged to have been caused by the defendants by constructing a tramway in front of his property. In support of the claim it was stated that plaintiff was owner of a block of land in Dandenong, access to which was obtained from Stud road. In June of last year the council erected an em bankment and tramway along Stud road which obstructed plaintiffts access to his property, and consequently the value of the land had been materially de preciated. For the defence it was ad mitted that plaintiff was entitled to damages, and the only question to be considered was the amount of damage he had suffered. His Honor gave judgment for plaintiff for L60, with costs. The new Foundling Home at Beaconsfield is to be opened on the 6th of May by Lady Stanley, and all arrangements are now being made for the function. It is...

TEE FEAR OF LAUGHTER. Perlhaps one of the hardest trials., a roung marn is called upon to enduro is bsing laughed at. Many a man has szc iiunIcdr to the scornful laughter of his rllows, who has successfully resisted ,any other al t?acks of the eeaning.

A man said to him: M'a:1ny pcople will laugh at yoe." l' It f." he replied. "'am not lautlghed :lon." How many would envy such de ermlnation and -courage? When yoc comne to think of it, what is there in the larlghter of foolish people to make as afraid?' "As is the'crackling of thorni under a pot, so is the llughter of a fool," says the wise man. Laugh ter can never break any bones, and it is a coward's part to allow it to inti midate us.. No coward is greater than he who dires not to be wise becauss rodols will laugh at him.

"No admission Except on: Business. -o Dusiness Transacted fere.e" The back door is equally forbid ding. "Please." so runs the sign, "Do Not Enter Without Knocking. PIlease Do Not Knock."
