CAT BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
CAT BURGLAR. My husband and I had retired' 'one night and were sleeping when, suddenly I was awakened by weird sounds coming from the kitchen. I hurriedly awoke my husband, franti cally saying burglars were in' the house, but for answer he simply grunt ed and turned over. I urged him to go downstairs and see, but he - said: 'Oh, you have just been dreaming.' For a moment all was' quiet,' then once again the noise started, seem ingly worse than ever. At last lie sat up, really believing his own ears, and, man-like, said; 'You go down, they won't touch a woman.' But as I was not feeling quite equal to such a cour ageous task he took pity on me, and, armed with poker and tongs, we stealthily crept downstairs together. ' We crouched behind the kitchen door, listening arid shivering and shaking, quietly opened the door, and switched on the light. Imagine 'our surprise to see, instead of a ; hefty burglar, our pet cat rushing about with the jug which had been left in readi ness for the mi...
THEY CERTAINLY DON'T [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
THEY CERTAINLY DON'T The teacher was talking to the class on the subject of success, pointing to the lives of successful men about whom they had, or should have, learned. Wishing to bring the subject closer home, she turned to Alfred, the son of the village doctor, and said: 'Your father has been doctoring people for over fifteen years, and everyone praises him. What does that prove, Alfred?' 'That dead men don't tell tales, Miss Jane,' responded the boy. Customer: 'I think I'll take one of those live lobsters.' Dealer (picking out one: 'Shall I wrap this up?' Customer: 'Yes, unless you think it's tame enough to follow me home.' Young Wife: 'Darling, look at that lovely blue saloon car! It just matches my new frock!' Husband: 'And that two-seater just matches my purse!' Chairman (after economy lecture): 'And now, gentlemen, I am going to ask you to give the speaker two hearty cheers.' . ? ? '
THE "BLAZE OF GLORY." [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
THE ' 'BLAZE OF GLORY: ' The lmtory of the 'Blaze of Glory,' as the jewel was called, is one of the most thrilling in the stories of fam ous, gems. On one side of the splendid diamond is engraved the sacred sign of King Solomon— on the other a device said to have been designed by the Queen of Sheba. Tradition says that she so captivated the wise King by her charm that he unclasped the jewel from his turban and presented it to the Queen. Rumors spread — tales were repeated of the fabulous value of the gem. The bandit El-Hakin marched his robber band into the Queen's country, and, after murdering her, seized the pre | cious diamond. Two weeks after he was murdred by his own men. From year to year the sinister jewel lias brought evil to whosoever pos sessed it. Ruin and often bloodshed have followed in its path. The Kaiser's ancestor, the Margrave of Brandenburg, whose kingdom was the cradle of the future Prussian dy i nasty, took prison a Jewish trader, amongst whose goods was found t...
LUXURY CAGE FOR BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
LUXURY CAGE FOR BIRDS. A remarkable cage has been pre pared for the humming birds which have arrived at the Zoo, which are the first specimens of their kind that the London ,-Zoo lias possessed for some years. The cage, which is ornamented with tropical plants, has special thermo static heaters to keep the tempera ture between 75 and 80 degrees. There are a fountain and a bathing pool, and the birds will take their food — a mix ture of honey and a patent milk-food —from feeding troughs shaped like flowers. In each flower is a small tube which contains the food, so that the birds can feed as though they were suck ing honey with their long bills from real flowers.

A Mystery Thriller I JACK O'JUDGNIENT By EDGAR WALLACE. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [All Rights Reserved.] CHAPTER XXXIX. Jack o' Judgment Revealed. A stoutish, grey-haired man descend ed from a third-class carriage at Cha tham Station and inquired of a porter the way to the dockyard. He carried a lot of carpenter's tools in a straw bag and smoked a short clay pipe. The porter looked at the man with his white, stubby beard critically. 'Trying to ge.t a job, mate?' he asked. 'Why, yes,' said the man. 'How old might you be?' demanded the porter. 'Sixty-four,' said the other, and the porter shook his head. 'You won't get work e&sy. They're hot very keen on us old 'uns,' lie said. 'Why don't you try at Markham's, the builders in the High-street? They're short of men. I saw a notice outside their yard only this morning.' The workman thanked the porter, shouldered his basket and tramped down the High Street. He was re spectably dressed, and policemen on the look-out for su...
PURPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
PURPOSE. We plague ourselves with endless ? needs. , We build our hopes and dreams of things; We seek in muscle-straining deeds A satisfaction prowess brings. In pomp and pride The world we stride, And call it failure to b^e meek; . While day by day Along life's way i Are countless joys we need -not seek. So thick with wants we've sown our years That few of us brief rest can find. In running first success appears. 'Tis failure grim to lag behind. Yet life is sweet And all complete For those who dare a slower pace, While rest at night 1 And true delight Lend beauty to tlie commonplace. AVlio knows what God shall deem suc cess? - Great wealth and fame and buildings tall To which men turn; for happiness May not suit His design at all. And it may be That Ave shall sec, When time and ' toil on' earth are through, The will to' share Life's common care Is all God wished from me and you. A Continental correspondent endea vors to describe the difference be tween clerks and managers as fol lo...
FIELD FROLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
FIELD FROLIC. By a Naturalist. I stood in a sheltered spot looking at a low cliff. About half-way up was a large hole, and my field-glasses showed a distinct track leading to this from the ground. Some wild animal had taken possession of the burrow. Presently I saw a movement at the entrance and a small brown nose ap peared. It sniffed, then came out a few inches farther; a minute later two more noses appeared, and shortly afterwards seven plump fox-cubs were playing before me. j Absolute silence was essential, and for nearly an hour I remained immov able. Their game seemed to have no denite meaning, they were just gam bolling to relieve high spirits, and when these puppies of the wild do this there seems to be such a spirit of abandon in them that if it were not for their watchful parent many would come to grief. In the midst of their play the head of the vixen showed at the entrance of their home. One sniff in my direc tion told her that a human being was near, and in an instant t...
SOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
SOLD. . Jones was taking his holiday motor ing about the country. At least, lie told his friends that was what he was i doing. ^ The car had cost him thirty pounds. Slowly and painfully it had breasted the hills, reaching the top of each as cent just when it seemed that the rickety engine would give out altoge ther. Every time the solitary brake was applied there were weird shrieks of protest from some part of the me chanism, and altogether Jones was very fed-up with his 'bargain.' Presently he came to a gate where tolls were collected. 'Half a crown for the car, sir,' said the gatekeeper. Jones looked up with a pathetic smile of relief. , 'Sold,' he exclamed, thankfully. Reverend Visitor: 'And don't you ever say prayers before your meals, sonny?' Precocious Child; 'Oh, no— Dad says . our cook's pretty reliable!' As the doorkeeper ran down the club steps to open the car door, he tripped and rolled down the last four steps. 'For heaven's sake, bo careful!'.' cried the club manager. '...
SEX LAWS IN SAVAGE LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
SEX LAWS IN SAVAGE LANDS. ? Among the Bechuanas the men plough, and it is tabu for a woman to touch the cattle. , - The women of old Nicaragua had the monopoly of shopping ; if a man l interfered he was thrashed. The Eskimos consider it a scandal ous thing for a man to interfere with or perform work belonging to women. The segragation of the sexes goes so far in many cases that each sex has practically a different language. According to the Zulu Llonipa laws a woman may not call her husband by his name. She must say 'father of so and so.' She may not use words' similar to the name; consequently the .women have invented synonyms. The Caribs have two distinct voca bularies —one used by men and by womeii when speaking to men; the other. by women when speaking to each other, and by men when repeating some saying of the women. The Japanese7 have actually two al phabets—one katakana, for the use. of men; the other hiragana, for the use of women. Here are some mixed examples: — Dyak boys a...
LOST AND FOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 14 December 1933
LOST AND FOUND. Recently my little girl came running in from our rear garden carrying a tiny baby sparrow. It had chosen a wet evening for its first flight, and reached the garden level, and been /un- able to fly back. . . ? Tf wqc frottrno* rlavlr , en T Wftnt '-Aiif to have a look round. Above me a ter rible commotion was going on. It was pitiable to hear the plaintive cries of the parent birds, distracted at the loss of their fledgling. - We made the poor little fellow com fortable on the warm' hearth before retiring, and he was chirping quite perkily when we came down. There was a strange quietness about the garden that morning. It was as though the sparrow fraternity was mourning its dead — there was not a sign of the parent birds about their riest, which is in the eaves just above my bedroom window. It had cast a gloom over the house hold, too. The children implored me to, do something-,- and strangely enough it was one of 'jftiem who suggested the cock-loft. ' ,V'. Ours is a ...
