CONTENTMENT IS HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

CONTENTMENT IS HAPPINESS. There is a moral lesson for us all in the following:—Terrance, a good natured, powerful Irishman, was one of a number of workmen employed in erecting a new building. The owner of the building, who knew him, said to him one day, "Terry, didn't you tell me that a brother of yours is a -ilersyman?" "Yiss, sorr." "And you are a hod-carrier! i'he :ood things of this life are not equal y divided, are they, Terry?" "No, sorr," replied Terrence, slioul lering his hod, and starting up the adder with it. "Poor felly! He could i't do this to save his life!" Sorrow must come some time to •verybody, and thoso who scarcely ;iste it in their youth often have a nore brimming and bitter cup to I rain in after life; whereas, those who exhaust the dregs early, who lrink the leaves before the wine, may •".isonably hope for more palatable Ir.iugiiU to succeed. Kiissin has the most rapidly increas nj population of any country in Eur-1 >pe, and China in Asia. The largest propo...

A STRANGE SIGHT AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

A STIIANGB Slum AT BKA. It Las frequently been observed that t row of penguins standing on the sea ihoro have ft remarkable resemblance to a regiment of soldiers; but never, s.:rely, lias the fact been so firmly im pressed upon the observers as during ihe voyage of the brigantino " Con Mielo " while bound from Hawaii to Sao Fra::cisio. The tale, as related uy one of her crew /o an American inter viewer, reads very pleasantly, shortly before the time of her sailing a French barque had been last. Two boats con taining part of her crew had been picked up. A third, with seven men. was still missing, and the crew of the •' Consuelo" kept a sharp look-out for it. One day, before sunset, the look out man saw, or thought ho saw, a ship's boat with a number of men on board about four miles away. The cap tain was called, and looked at the boat through his glasses, as did the officers. Orders were given to steer towards it, the cook set busily to work to provide hot food for the starving casta...

Dedication of New Rectory. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

Dedication of New Rectory. Iu the presence of a number of parishioners and tbeir friends, his Lordship the Bishop of Wangaratta on Saturday afteruoon conducted the dedication ceremony with the new rectory. Hymn and reading was followed by a short address by Dr. Armstrong, who heartily con gratulated the parishioners on their enterprise. JBenalla could now claim to have the very best rec tory in the diocese. It constituted a crown to all that had gone before. As Englishmen they all knew the thrill there was about home and all that it meant. All had a right to look for healthtul aud happy homes. It was au advantage—in deed a necessity—to have a home suited to their circumstances. If a man's environments were miser able it became hard for him to avoid being miserable also. The only possible hope of getting people to rise above their environments was to gel them iuto cleaner, moie •healthful surroundings. If they wanted them to b.- bright and cheerful their surroutidiugs should be brigh...

Federal Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

Federal Elections. It may be taken for granted that the position of parties will 'be.' —Labor, 42 ; Liberal, 33 or a Labor majority (assuming) Mr. Wise's vote to be cast on that si'le nf nine. The feature of the count ok Thursday was the rapid progress made with the absentee votes in Indi, Mr. W. L. Darlisou. and his assistants in two days got through the counting of 2252 absentees, of which only 14 were found to be in formal. Of the total Mr. Moloney secured 1300 and Mr. Ahem 929. votes recorded in Indi represent 85 per cent, ot those on the rolls—a record for a country electorate, and probably for Australia. An excellent workiug bee was formed for Benalla by the local branch P. LC. There was nothiug left to chance this time, and there is not the slightest doubt the excel lent organisation in the outlying booths, where previously there had been noue, had a good deal to do with wiping of! the stiff deficiency of the 1913 election. In connection with the local branch itself the power...

The Hohenzollerns. "Max Adams" is severe, not to say pitiless: [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

The'Hohenzollems. " Max Adams " is severe, not to say'pitiless : Consider the family of Kaiser Bill, the degraded being who is filling our newspaper offices with censors, ruining trade, littering all Europe with dead, and in other re spects making a world's curse of himself. History has little to say about the HohenziUerns until the beginning of the 15th century,when Higjsmund, head of the Itonun Empire, found liimseif hard up. There was then a rich landlord in Germany named Hohenz >llero, to whom Sigismund already owed 250.000 mirks. Ho harrowed an other 150.000 marks, bringing the total to 400,000 tnaiks, and in re turn he granted his creditor the fief of Brandenburg, which is the pro vince surrounding Berlin. Thus the money-lending barons became lords over the city which whs after wards to be the capital of Prussia and of Germiny. They remained good bargainers and shrewd intrig uers, aud were soon established as electors or princes of Brandenburg. Up to the end of the 17th cen...

ROUND THE DISTRICT. PELLUEBLA. A large gathering took place on Monday night in the School shelter shed, the occasion being to say good-bye to Bert. Wright, who has volunteered his services to the King in the present crisis in Europe. The whole affair was got up ii a day or so, yet it was surprising to see such a fine gathering, and it certainly shows the respect lliat Bert, is held in bv the residents of the surrounding district. The first portion of tbe evening was devoted to songs, recitations and speeches, the latter by Messrs. Jas Willis, J.P., C. Roberts, T. Hayes and W. Conroy. The songs were of a patriotic character and the whole assemblage joined in in singing them. Phyllis Leggatty, who pos sesses a sweet voice, gave a pretty song, Emmie Rhodes also gave a song, and recitations were rendered by Cecil Rhodes, Madge Wright, Emmie Rhodes and and Mr. W. Conroy. The latter portion of tUe evening was devoted to dancing. The usual good supply of the dainties supplied by the ladies...

A Visit to Mount Buffalo. IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

A Visit to Mount Buffalo. IN WINTER. By "Onlooker.'-' It has been said that " A thing of beauty is a joy for ever." and. perbaps.it may-be safely asserted to notbiDg does this apply more so than to the scene on and about the summit of Mount Buffalo in the depths of winter. The writer made a week-end trip to this tourist's paradise recently, and saw the " top" in all its rnag • nificent glory. Arriving at Bright at about 11 p.m., I put up for the night at the Alpine Hotel, and at 9 a.m. next morning found myself on the box seat, with "Mick" Dolierty in charge of the ribbons of four beautiful greys. By reason of the fact that the other passengers were young ladies of sporting proclivities and other feminine - charms; " Mick" was at his best, and his strange and wierd experi ences and stories poured forth" as they never did before. Kven his dog " Knicabocker," who, by the way, was christened that name by reason of the fact that the faster he travels the shorter his pants get. was equal...

The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain ' And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, ' Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep. That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of mou; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advertise."

The Rally of tiie Dominions. 'H HOW AUSTRALIA'S 01fFER WAS RECEIVED IN * LONDON. The instant and general rally of the Overseas Dominions to the mother country the week before Britain declared war against Ger many, assuring her of the unity of the Empire and offering to help sent a thrill through London. The whole of the British press, Liberal and Unionist, gave great promi nence to the expressions of loyalty which the crisis called forth before war was declared, and the 'Times,' in a stirring article on the subject when the question of Britain's neu trality was still in the balance, said that the readiness of the great sons of the Empire to stand shoulder to shoulder w'th the' mother country if war came pointed clearly to Eng land's duty. The loyal utterances of Australian statesmen on the crisis were pub lished In full, and Mr A. Fisher's remark that Australia would stand by the mother country to the last man and the last shilling was set forth in bold headlines by a major ity of t...

Hospital Collector's Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

Hospital Collector's Work. The work of the collector for the Wangaratta Hospital, or rather the "result of it, was criticised by the committee on Thursday evening, Mr Cozens collected ,£34 18s 6d during August, and received .£16 19s 5d as commission, &c., and salary—about .50 per cent, of the total amount collected. In August last year ,£40 was collected. Mr W. G. Banfield said he drew Mr Cozen's attention to the smalluess of the collections, and the explana tion was that owing to the Charity C-»rnival, patriotic collections, &c., it was unusually difficult to collect money. Mr. Banfield suggested that they might revert to the old system of paying the collector a small salary and commission. Mr Graham said in view of the outlook it might be advisable to dispense with the services of the collector altogether, and have the collecting done voluntarily by small commit tees in each cautre. Mr. Banfield said a large number of subscribers objected to a high commission. The ...
