THE VALUE OF LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
THK VALUE OF HG1IT. The majority of people do nol ai> ■ reciate light qb they should do uight, whether material or moral, is ;he beat reformer; it prevents those lisorders which other remedies some times cure, but sometimes confirm. Sci ence and art may invent splendid methods of illuminating the apart ments of the wealthy. Indeed, they have dono so, but these aro all pool ind worthless compared with the light which the sun sends into our windows, l'he value of light to healthy persons 1 is immense; to invalids it is far great jr. Tho quantity of light admitted into a sick chamber is a matter of thf lirst importance to its suffering oc cupant. Light is an element of cheer fulness, ana on that account it is de sirable that as much should be admit ted as tho patient can ben r without inconvenience. The light in a sick room should be wft and subdued—nol glaring, and care should be taken that bright, lustrous objects, such as crys tals and looking-glasses, should ■ -opt out of the pa...
THE Benalla Independent. PUBLISHED ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS "Stands close to all But leans on none." FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1914. Dean Old Granny. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
THE Bemiila Independent. POBUSHKD ON TOUSDAYS AND FRIDAYS "Stands close to nil ' But lenus on none."' FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1914. Dean Old Granny. The ".j" Argus" becomes intensely humorous when she assumes the pathetic. In her blind rage over the triumph of Labor at the polls the aged Collins street virago de scended to the contemptible by attempting to assure its readers that "Australia has now to put up with Labor rule as well as the war and drought scourges." But, after all, this may be Granny's prayerful petition to heaven. !?he has a queer style of doing things. She frequently curses when she should bless. Remarkable it is that no sooner is the Labor success an nounced than Nature smiles. The droughty land gets moist, aud the best news from the &lt;=eat of war up to date was that which came along the cables yesterday. We are not quite so "balmy" as to ascribe to Labor the control of such benedic tious as raiu aud peace, but simply to -point o.ut to pagan sheets like •'...

Correspondence. BE UNITED! TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
Correspondence. BE UNITED ! TO rnic KDITOR. Sir',—Last Saturday^ while in Beualla I made it ray business to be present at the gathering to say good-bye to our boys. I was pleased to note my oldest mate there, some of my boys, as well, whom I had often taken to the butts to do their musketry, and I remember how well they did it, too. I was sorry I coald not be among them, but home circumstances alter the matter. Well, I noted a striking contrast to the unity that should prevail on such occasions. I refer to the pro nounced feelings between the two bands On an occasion of this kind there is no time for these little differences for we see greater ones in otherjlands quieted. Why could not these two bands have come out in uniform and joiued together and marched on this occasion? It would be more fitting, I think. I&lt;et the old band and the new, too, shake hands on- such occasion and be united in a common cause of patriotism. My impressions, I am sure, are those of every reside...

Is it Pleasant to Die. STRANGE SENSATIONS ON THRESHOLD OF DEATH. FIRSTHAND STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
Is it Pleasant to Die. ' STRANGE SENSATIONS ON THRESHOLD OF DEATH. FIRSTHAND STORIES. Interest in the discussion on "The pains or death" is stimulated by some recent lettees published in "The Times." A correspondent subscribing himself "A Traveller wrote :—"Some years ngo, while in India," X was suddenly and virulent ly seized with Asiatic cholera. In addition to terrible pain, I suffered agonies of thirst, as those stricken with cholera always do. At sur.h moments small pieces of ice are given to the patient to suck, and ho cannot retain even a spoonful of j liquid, but I happened to be where ice was unprocurable. For some time my mind was filled with thoughts of wounded soldiers lying parched at night upon the battle field. I felt at one with them, and then at last I realised the horrors of war. These images haunted me, and I could think of nothing else. Then, as the agonising pnin pro duced exhaustion, I swiftly under stood that I was probably about to die. The thought soemcd to ...

AN EPOCK-MAKING BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
AN EPOCK-MAKING BOOK. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was publish ed on March 20, 1852. The author Mrs. Beecher Stowe, was despond ent as to "whether anybody would read or attend to her appeal" on behalf of the enslaved negroes of the States. She was "agreeably dis appointed both in a moral and fi tancial sense, for 10,000 copies sold in a few* days, and over 300, 000 within a twelvemonth. Running night and day, the i-rint Ing, presses could barely meet the demand. It was not only read, >ut remembered and pondered over. The pity, the distress, the indigna . tion long pent up in the writer's soiil passed from her into the mil lions of readers of the book. The nation's conscience was awakened. John Brown was the first, but by do means the least, American to lay down his life for the cause of.the negro freedom. A mighty civil weir v shook the Union to Its very foun dations ; but the United States sur vived the fiery ordeal intact., and fin ally took her place among the civi lised nations who re...

A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. On May 19, 1864, Maximilian,-, the! handsome, blue-eyed, • fair-leardel orother of the Austrian Emperor, made his proud entry into the capi tal of Mexico, the land over which he had been chosen by Napoleon to rule. There was no portent on that glorious day. to hint at the tragedy which was to close his reign and his life within three short years. It had been from no lack of warn ing that he had accepted the crown of Mexico as the puppet of the designing Napoleon. llis brother, the Austrian Emperor, and every member of the Royal House had warned him of the perils he would encounter; but his wife, a Rclgian Princess, had scolTed at his fears. I It was not Ion?, however, before Mexico was seething with rebellion, and Maximilian's throne was totter ing to its fall. Then, thoroughly alarmed, the Empress Charlotte bade her husband hold his throne while she started for Europe to supplicate Napoleon's help.
