Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 March 1914

DEATH OF DR. W. F. SWEETNAM HONORED CAREER CLOSES. Widespread Regret. The sad message was received on Tuesday evening that Dr. W. F. Sweetnam had passed away in Melbourne that afternoon. The regretful news was not unexpect ed, as for some days his intimate friends held out very little hope of his recovery. Several months ago Dr. Sweetnam suffered from a severe attack of influenza, the effects of which he never fully re covered from, although he was able I to pursue his professional duties 1 with the same energy and vigor j that characterised his life. During December he became very unwell and decided to take a holiday, with the hope of recuperating. He visited Tasmania, but after being there only a few days became ill and he returned to Victoria, where he was placed under Dr. M'Ked die's care. He made a good re covery and in January he returned home to Mortlake. .But, alas, it was only for a few days, as he again became ill and had to return to Melbourne for treatment. Since then he...

A Clever Ruse. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 March 1914

A Clever Ruse. In tfl« battle of Poitiers, 1856, a j aumber of Scottish soldiers fought on > the side of the French, and several ot i them were taken prisoners by the Eng. ! lish. Amongst them wag Sir Archi- | bald Douglas, half-brother of Lord Wil liam Douglas. Being dressed in a suit of splendid armor, the victors thought I tliey had captured—-as indeed they had i —some great nobleman. Several of 1 the English were about to strip elf his ■ armor, when Sir William Ramsay, of Coiluthie, who was also a prisoner, happening to catch Sir Archibald's eye, gave him a meaning look. Pre tending to be very angry he cried out: "You rascal, how is it that you are wearing your master's armor? Come here and pull off my boots." Douglas, seemingly thoroughly cow ed, went humbly forward and drew off a boot, with which Sir William began to beat him. 1 The English onlookers at once inter fered on Douglas's behalf, saying that he was a person of great rank and a lord. "What!" shouted Ramsay, shakin...

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish spenders of your time, but choose Buch which are healthful, t>hort, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; hut at no hand dwell in them , or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sports and calls it recreation is like him whose garment is all made of fringes and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use- ; les3.

As she passed, he called out, "I'll send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. But the ducks were wild indeed that day, or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at night he returned home with only two snipe for his bag. Remembering his promise to Mrs. S., and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, ,he called his "boy," and told him to go to the market, buy a pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received an invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks. Won't you come and see them?" said she. "See them!" said the astonished Mr. B. "Ha-;en't you used them yet? I fear they have been hanging too long." "Oh, no," she replied. "Come and see."

It was in the gloom of a mother's death, deepened by his poyerty, thai Johnson penned the charming tale ot "Rasselas." It was in the chill desolation of a bare and fireless garret that poor Goldsmith, the beloved vagrant of .s.terature, sketched the brightest pic ; of domestic happiness the world ?rer had.

It is the Age of Machinery, In every outward and uni versal sense of that word: the age which, with its whole individual might,' forwards, teaches, and practises the great art of adapting means to ends. Nothing is now dene direcr.lv. or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness.

Cleopatra's bewitching of Caesar. Th« ■world is filled with Just such stories to-day, and there is just as much ro mance in our midst as there ever was. Because they don't wear Roman togas or suits of armor,- or fight in tournaments, is no more reason foi saying there is no romance than ther« would be to say because men don't use bows and arrows in warfare na more battles are fought. The passions are just as real as ever. It's merely the ways of express ing them that differ. Men are quite as willing to sacri fice themselves for the fair object of their love as ever they were.
