Why we stand on One Leg to Rest. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914

Why We Stand on One Leg to Rest. ll'atch the people wailing for a Iran or for a car at the end of a ay's work ! Ilow niany of them are standing on one log ? All ? Well, nearly iil. Vet, when '.olu come to think of it.. it is queer that it should be more restful to put your whole weight on one leg until it is tired, then on the other, and so otlth, moving backward and for ward constantly; - instead of sup- I porting the weight all the time on two feet, which would . then, one would imlagine, not grow as tired. Yet that this one-leg plan is a true and wise plan for securing a rest is made clear by the fact that in all the armies of the world "stand at ease" is a position -in which all the weight is put on the one foot, and the knee of the other leg is flexed. The whole matter depends on the fact that man is not yet sufficiently accustomed to the upright position. As a relief from standing- upright he will lean against a pillar or limp-post, and if it is possible to hi a projection sli...

I:romn "The Parish Suppemeint;"l t The Promise. BY DOROTHY FRANCES fERRY. The sick room was very still. Now ; and again the nurse would glance up irou her needlework and address the patient, but no reply .was ever vouch safed. The brown head moved rest lessly on the pillows; the brown eyes eyes stared bitterly into space. :Full of resentment, dread, .and .heartsick iness, Mary faced death, beyond:.the reach of mortal skill, and-without faith in immortality. How she loathed this - room, 1 this cage, where like a frightened bird lier enemy would find her. All in vain to beat her breast and break her' wings against the gilded bars. Escape s1as impossible, and hope a mockery. Ol,. to sleep and wake, and find it all a dream. But the clock' oi the mantel ticked on resolutely, ticking a'way her hours.that were :numbered.-. . A scornful smile curved Mary's lips, as her eyes rested on the sweet peas, delicate wonders of scent and form, which- decked the invalid table. Did they think she coul...

Capitalism, Usury and the Church of England. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914

Capitalism, Usury and the Church of England. it is'very often said' that te Church is not sulnciently colncerned with l:liilanthropy, or even that the Church has always taken the side of the rich against the poor. Moreover, in sing ing the psalnis in Church,.many of us lhave often wondered how we.stand with; regard to usury. Dr. Cunning ham, a very well-known authority on these: matters, writes in "The Cure of: Souls,' page 177, as follows: 'I ai iiot saying that the Church las ever risen to her vocation ;and privileges in the exposition of Cliristian truth, or the evangelisation of the heathen, or any other depart nmelit of Christian activity. She has come terribly short in all; but I do not think she has- been especially neglectful in regard to economic life and her niaterial -welfare of humani beings. What seems to me to be the root-evil in the capitalistic system of the present, day is .the sense of irre sponsibility : of.: so. many capita lists; :theyl excuse themselves be caus...

Municipal Government. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 March 1914

Municipal Government. Under the Above heading, the Age is publishing articles dealing in somewhat scathing terms with muni oipal governm.ent as carried on under the present system. In comparison with the systems in vogue in Europe and America, the complaint is made that in this country the major por tion of municipal work is conducted by amateurs, whilst in the countries mentioned such work is managed by experts, and to a correspondingly batter advantage than exists here. This is the burden of the song. The writer goes so far as to say that in Australia, or Victoria, at all events, ' the real municipal autocrat is the Town Clerk or Shire Secretary, and whether his care be a metropolis or a borough with 400 people, he is the guide, philosopher and friend-the municipal school master for almost every councillor." Assuredly this is a very big compliment for Town Clerks and Shire Secretaries, and a compliment, too, for municipal sur veyors and engineers, whose names have not b'aen mentio...
