ANTFUL BEN[?]MIN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 6 June 1914
Benjamin: Bird was a dever youth, whose knowledge had been gained by recent' eager ience. He stood on the edge of the kerbstone and stared up wards till a crowd gathered around him. There was certainly something to loo^ at, for a brave fireman stood on. the roof of. a high building gaz ing on the multitude in the street beneath. So interested did he seepi that he contiaued to-stand on that perilous height, for fully ten minutes apparently forgetful of his proper duty, that of putting out the fire. "Whatever is the fellow doing up there ?" said a gentleman, pointing '-':ywards with his umbrella. "'There [ m't seem to be any smoke." "Oh, no., sir," said the wicked ! " . njamin. "And 'e coul't do no [ Ynfe if there was, ? 'cos 'e's on'y a ; cl :mmy advertisement for our noo | 'ose-pipes."

This not withstanding the fact that the en gine resembled nothing so much as a street roast-potato oven joined to a village pump and other appliances which were neither useful nor orna mental. The visitor was duly impressed, bu& one thing puzzled htea. "Why," he said, "you don't seem to have either a telegraph or tele phone installation in the village. How do you summon your men when a fire breaks out?" The captain was equal to the occa sion. "Oh, that's simple enough," he re plied. "'We sends 'em all a pictures postcard !'' "The cook says she is going to leave," said Mrs. Weir, mournfully. "Are you sure she's in earnest ?" responded her husband. "Yes." "Nothing will cliange ber mfind ?" "Nothing." "All right.

PRESENT DAY PLUCK. I ?a* CORDS WHICH SHOW WE ABB J«ST AS HEROIC AS EVER WE WEREH\ . Nothing, according to some pessi mists, is as good as it used. to be, and a very favourite score of com plaints is that the: present is an effeminate age-that the present generation is soft, and has little phy sical strength and no pluck left. For the purpose of refuting this ac cusation, the contributor has run through some files of English papers for the past eighteen months or so, and he has in front of 'him notes sufficient to make twenty articles of the length to which he is limited.

What shall we do when your en gagement is over ?" That was the question which' Lady Westall put more than once to Vio let. The answer was one that gave constant anxiety to the devoted wo man. . " I don't know." Lady Westail was certain that the reason Violet did not know, or would not try to know, was due to some se cret, vexing cause, which, perhaps she was hardly aware of herself. Cer tainly she always answered not mere ly with brevity, but even petulantly, and as the time for the close of the engagement drew nearer, Lady West all could see that Violet, often sought the solitude of her own chamber and there brooded."" 'The end of the engagement came, and yet Violet did not say what she wished to do, nor would she agree with any of the plar.s made by Lady Westall. The solution came by ac cident. --One day Lady Westal...

BATLED OUf. At the conclusion .of'the sessions at 9 provincial town, the legal luminaries indulged in a cricket match.

He lmd hardly spoken when an extra fast hall removed the cross-pieces. "No, my lord," replied the with a sly grin, "you are ' bailfr
THE HORSE'S WONDERFUL POWER OF SMELL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 6 June 1914
I ? THE HORSE'S WONDERFUL POWER OF SMELL. J!ko following, from " Horse and Stable," shows bow yepy kocn indeed must be the horse's sense of snieli; r^ '.'fhe horse will leave musty hay un touched in his bin, however hungry. He will not drink of water objectionable to his questioning sniff, or from a bucket which some odour makes offensive, how ever thirsty. His intelligent nostril will widen, quiver and query over the dain tiest "hit offered by the fairest fit hands, with coaxings that wou.'-J make a mortal shut his eyes and swa'low a nauseous mouthful at a gulp. A mare is never satisfied by either sight or whinny that her colt is really her own until she lias a certified nasal certi ficate to tho fact. A blind liorse now living will not allow tho approach of any stranger without showing signs of anger nqt"safely to be disregarded. Thp distinction is evidently made by his sense of smell and at a considerable distance. Blind horses, as a rule, will gallop wildly about a pasture witho...
