WIVES (Contributed) [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939

WIVES -0- (Contributed) Being the considered observations I of an inconsiderate husband.

SMILE WITH US CURRENT STORIES [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939

SMILE WITH US CURRENT STORIES It is 11nderstood that a. well-kno'wn garage proprietor in Melbourne road has a secondhand baby carriage. on view among his modern cars and trucks. He did not want it. In fact, in a manner of speaking, it was forced upon him. The alleged circumstances outlined to us thisi week were as fol-I low: A popular carrier, who is also a secondhand dealer, received word that an auction of property was to take place at the ;police station.. Being the possessor of a keen bargain sense, he arrived at the station 'before the appointed time to inspect the goods offering. He was rather disappointed, however, to see only a secondhand perambulator for auction. He also noted that he was the only bargain hunter present. He was still the sole member of the public when the time for the auction arrived, and at least three are necessary, we are told, be fore property may be offered for pub lic auction. The police, however, were equal to the occasion, and enlisted the help of t...

THIS WEEK'S JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 18 August 1939

THIS WEEK'S JOKE. An air of mystery surrounds this week's true story. It concerns a small ,pet dog owned by a former trader and his wife. They decided that the time had come for the dog to leave this earth, and after making inquiries, and filling in forms, conducted the animal to the council's lethal chamber with many sighs, for he was a pretty pup. . Assurance was obtained from the lethal expert that the dog's end would be swift and certain. The dog, however, turned up at the old address two days later! -He look ed rather bedraggled, but there was no doubt that he had returned lh the flesh. What was the explanation? Who was the Elusive Pimpernel who snatched dogs from the executioner's power? The owners wanted an explanation, too, but after some inquiries they re ceived a reply that melted their hearts. We are not prepared to divulge it at this stage, but readers may pur chase their hot-dogs tomorrow with out any misgivings at all.
