"Home." He had been around from church to church trying to find a congenial congregation, and finally he stopped in a little church just as the con gregation read with the minister: "We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done." The man dropped into a pew with a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness." he said, "I've found mv crowd at last."

Complimentary—in a Way. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

ComDlimentarv—in a Way. "John, said Mrs. Harkins "I heard ii nice compliment for you to-day." Mr. Harkins put his paper down, twisted up the ends of his mous tache, looked pleased and said: "Well that's nothing remarkable. I receive compliments nearly every day." Mrs. Harkins went on sipping her tea and her husband waited for her to resume. Finally, he said: "Well, why don't you tell me what . it was? Who was it that compli-' mented me?" "Oh, you couldn't guess in a week." "Mrs. Deering?" he ventured. "No." "Not Bessie Fallington?" he rather eagerly suggested. "No." "Oh, well, of conrae, if there's any secret aibout it, I don't care to hear what it was, or who said it." "There isn't any secret about it," Mrs. Harkins sweetly returned. "Mr. Hannaford told me that, every time he and I met, he ibecame thoroughly convinced that you were a man of ex cellent taste." John Harkins then shoved his hands down in his pockets and walked out side to think it over.

A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 April 1914

A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Rev. George Denyer," vicar of St. Paul'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. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. * It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat in the church. It takes a long time to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.

PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern 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 ho tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and wlien 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 slight est right to ur» rather pleasant.

Itinerant Vendors. THE •' CHEAP JACK" SYSTEM. CASH (?) DRAPERY. DISCUSSION AT THE WARRUGAL TRADERS' ASSOCIATION.' (From the " West Gippsland Gazette,' Wamigai). At the mooting of tho Warrugu Traders' Association at. tlio Athen aeum on Thursday evening, rofei* cnce was made to tlio practice of itinerant vendors of goods visiting country towns and offering goods of questionable quality, for which, in the haste of selling by auction, they often received prices altogether out of all proportion to the value of the goods. The President of tlw ' Association (Mr, Flott) presided, and in the course of his romaiks, said it was n shame to see people so taken in. Not only wcro the people themselves often disappointed, but the vendors of the articles skinned tho town and district of ready cash to tho detriment of local storekeepers. Tt would not be quite so bad if tho goods were all of sound quality, but ho hud heard of a resident of Lardner purchasing har ness which proved ultimately to be made...
