Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Subjects for Thought. As a rule in life there is but little of what is called lock; and, if the cases of individual success or failure in life are carefully studied it will be found in most of them that neither good nor bad luck had anything to do with them, but that intelligeoe, ambition energy, fal man, and the lack of all or of some of theeething was reesponsible for the faiuore of the unsucoeesful one. A vaznz experience of men has led me to set less value on mere cleverness; to attach more and more importance to industry and pbysicalendcrance. Indeed, Iam much die posed to think that endurance is the most valuable quality of all; for industry, as the desire to work hard, does not come to much it a feeble frame is unable to respond to t?e desire. No life is wasted unless it ends in sloth, dishonesty, or cowardice. ONE of the most uselesa of all things is to take a deal of trouble in providing against dangers that never come. Ilowv many lay up riches which they neverenjoy ; to pr...

Three Dangerous Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Threc Dangerous Womncu. Beware of three women, The one who does not love children, the one who does not love flowers, and she who openly declares she does not like other women. There is something wanting in such, and in all prob ability its place is supplied by some unlovely trait. As Shskspeare says of him who has no soul for mosio, such a woman is fit for treason, strategy and spoils, and a woman intent on those is ten thousand times worse than any man could be, for, standing higher she can fall lower. Men may smile and jest a little over the tenderness lavished on a baby, but after all the prattle every womanly woman involuntarily breaks into at the sight of the wee creatures, it is very sweet to mas culine ears. It was the first language they ever knew, and in spite of the jest or smile, the sweetest on wife or sweetheart's lips. They may laugh, too, at the little garden tools, which seem like playthings to their strength, but in their hearts they associate, and rightly, purity ...
Seymour Mems. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
Seymour Melems. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] CRICKET is about the liveliest thing amongst us at the present time. We can raise two teams in the plare-Seymour and Seymour East-and the result is a hearty rivalry be tween them. During the past few seasons the Seymour East has generally held the premiership, and seem likely to do so agaiu this year. Seymour East played Tallarook last Saturday and won by 33 runs. the score being Seymour East 81, Tallarook 48. Nothing particularly brilliant was done save a magniflcent catch by McCulloch of Sey mour East, and the fine free batting of Cox for the same team ; his score being 43, nearly all got by safe, hard hitting. In feet it was one of the finest innings I have seen played on the grounl. Seymour played Nagambie the same day in Seymour Park, and were defeated by two wikets. Christmas with all its joy and festivity is fast approaching. As usual there are several pieni: parties. exursions. &e., on hand. The most enjoyable one that I ...
To Bring Out Faded Ink. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 December 1891
To Bring Out Faded Inuk. People having valuable documents locked away in safes: snd secretaries are often out of temper and out of pocket at discoverig that the writing tnereou tlas?eld a completely when their use becomes import ant. It is very easy in these cases to restore the color to the ink by porchasing a little solution of ammonium sulphide, and bathing the paper therein, or tracing over the letters with a camel's hair brush dipped in the fluid. If this remedy fails, gallie or tannia acid will generally bring out the words, no mat ter it they be eompletely illegible at first. After applying either solution the document should be carefully rinsed and dried.
