A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

A Day In the Country. The fresh-oomplexioned young police man from the country betrayed by his self-conscious air the disquietude he felt on first going on duty in a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of gaze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he was ftot noticed, the new constable ap proached the urchin. ( "Now, then," began the policeman, "what are you sitting there for all thiB time?" "Taldn' a day off In the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the species, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you Bee the country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course." replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

THROWN OUT OF MOTOR. SOLICITOR AND FARMER. Lismore, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

THROWN OUT OF-MOTOR. SOLICITOR AND FARMER. Lismore, Saturday. Cr. Donald Stewart, of Monrnot, Skipton, and Mr. F. R. Coldham; a Bailarat solicitor, were thrown out of a motor car on Friday even ing. They were journeying to Lismore to attend the meeting of the Gheringhap-Maroona Railway Construction Trust, and when their car was ascending one of the stony rises four or five miles south of Skipton, a bolt in the steering arm between the front wheels came loose, causing the driver, Lindsay Hillman, to lose control of the car, It left the road, and got among the stones scattered on the roadside. One of the wheels struck a big boulder, and the impact flung the two passengers out of the car. While it did not actually capsize, the-car tilted at a very dangerous angle. Had it toppled over, it would have fallen on Mr. Coldham, who was directly beneath it. In falling, Cr. Stewart wrenched his foot, and Mr. Coldham bruised his elbow. The chauffeur, whose grip of the steering wheel kept him in ...

SERIOUS BUSH FIRE IN LAANG LAANG, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

SERIOUS BUSH FIRE IN LAANG LAANG, Saturday. The hot weather of the past week was responsible for the most serious outbreak of fire that has occurred here for many years. Starting about midday on Mon day to the northward of Mr. Bennett's property, and helped by a strong wind, it was soon in Mrs. Thorburn's paddock, and it was only by the gallant efforts of j willing workers that the garden and i house were saved. Travelling westwards across Messrs. Buck's, Millard's, Ben- ! nett's and Nicholson's properties, the ! fire destroyed practically all their grass j and fencing. Mr. Bennett is a heavy i loser, as practically all his fencing and j grass were destroyed, and his fine or- j chard suffered severely. Mr. Nicolson | was also unfortunate, as his house and : garden and all the other buildings are ! in ruins. Mr. Hall's property had a miraculous escape. Three different days the fire was in the paddock, when the , wind mercifully came to the rescue. : This writer would here like to ent...

ANOTHER GRASS FIRE. 200 ACRES BURNED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

ANOTHER "GRASS FIRE. 200 ACRES BURNED. Shortly after 3 o'clock word was received at "The Dispatch" office by telephone that a grass fire had broken out at the Cemetery. The school bell was vigorously rung, but some few minutes elapsed be fore those living in the immediate vicinity realised that it sounded an alarm of fire ; another proof of the urgent necessity for a proper means of alarm, viz., a nre-bell. Unfortunately not a vehicle was j obtainable, although quite a large j number of beaters resoonaed to the call. However, a few journeyed out, and when the fire was reached it was found to be on Messrs. Whit son Bros, property. The paddock adjoining the cemetery contained a heavy growth of thistles and this proved good fuel for the flames. There was very little wind, but at times it came in gusts. The fire spread into the adjoining grass and stubble paddock and after burning about 200 acres was extinguished by the j strenuous efforts of the willing beaters. The fire was checked fr...

THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet we should be tempted to call it, not an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It is the Age ol 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 done directly, 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. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown aside. On every.hand, the living arti san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate one.

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. Boys demand especial care at the mother's hands. They should he trained to show consideration to oth« ers, and general good breeding. A lad who Is awkward, grumpy ana ill at ease in the presence of visitors is a painful sight, especially when— as frequently happens—his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine ment of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not be their humble slave. Nor should they be allowed to tyrannise over their sisters. That is the way to make them selfish, arrogant and generally Insufferable.

FINE WORK IN SPITE OF SORROW. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

FINE WORK IN 8PITE OP SORROW. One of the anomalies of literary history is, that it has often been the lot of those men who have contribu ted largely to the mirth or recreation of others to endure a more than ordin ary share of misery and want in their own lives. The most entertaining portions of literature have been written by men ■whose hearts have been heavy with 6orrow. It was in the gloom of a mother's death, deepened by his poverty, that Johnson penned the charming tale of "Rasselas." It was in the chill desolation of a bare and flreless garret that poor Goldsmith, the beloved vagrant of ilterature, sketched the brightest pic tures of domeBtic happiness the world ever had. It was from a sick bed, In sore die ixess and in a necessitous exile, that Tom Hood shook all England with laughter. The enchantment of Scott, the satire of Jerrold, half the gems of English wit and humor, have been thrown out by genius in its most sorrowful mo ments.

WHAT MEN WILL DO FOR THE LOVE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

. tfHAT MEN WILL DO FOR THE LOVE OF WOMEN. For love of woman battles have 1)661 fought, kingdoms have been lost, fop tones forfeited, and whole country aet at sixes and sevens. Jacob was willing to serve foi fi&chel seven years. Launcelot pre ferred love to honor; his love for tht queen was more to him than a seat at King Arthur's table. All the world knows the story o! Cleopatra's bewitching of Caesar. Thu •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 then I would be to say because men don'l 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 iog them that differ. Men are quite as willing to sacri fice themselves for the fair object ol their love as ever they were. All they want is to be given a c...

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 18 March 1914

WOMEN 8HOULD WEEP. "For women, a capacity for teara is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Tears—warm &nd ready ones—are a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emo< tion, a 40ft of liquid lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pas sion. "The woman who cannot weep is she who ,jkeeps up her nowers of thinking, and whose facia/Q'nes and prey hairs come readily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked effect in general tem oerament "Women who weep easily have cor respondingly light hearts, tender, de monstrative. and impulsive ways, and a charm which dry-eyed women lack."
