PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 April 1914
PATIENCE. "To know how to .wait," says De Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when they grap pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently. It has been said that speech has been given to women to conceal their thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. We know many old maids who have been trying for years. Most things we haven't the siight est right to are rather pleasant.

A VICAR'S. "DRINK POINTS." TheeRev. George Denyer, vicar of St. PaI's., Church,. Blackburn, issued some novel "drink points" in his parochial, letter for November. .He stated:. The man who can afford to get drunk is too rich.. : The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is the cork. If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you.

It takes a long time to age.whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.

Unintentional Frankness. The Bishop of London, who has been "going for" music-hall immo0: ality, recently told a story of a visit he paid to Buckingham Palace to see King Edward.

"Oh, Lord Salisbury never reco0 nises anybody," replied the King, and going to a bureau he took out a nes photograph of himself and handed it to the Bishop. "What do you thin? of that?" he asked. "A very excellent likeness, sir!" rc plied the Bishop. "Well," said the King, "when I showed it to Salisbury he looked hard at it for a minute and then said: "'Poor Buller! I wonder if he is really as stupid as he looks?"'

"No." "Oh, well, of course, if there's any secret about it, I don't care to hear what it was, or who said it" "There isn't any secret about It' M\rs. Harkins sweetly returned. "'Mr..
