DECEPTIVE DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 7 January 1915

DECEPTIVE DISTANCES. There is, perhaps, no question .-.'nicH provokes more interest and he answer more discussion and ain isement than the follow in?, innocent ly put to a circle of friends -while standing on the sea front or basking in the sun on the sands: — "How far would you say that ship s.tluu we can just see on the hori zon?" The first will probably answer with decision. "Ten miles." The second will now remark that "Distances arc .so deceptive over water, you know; "I think you would ;ind it nearer twenty than ten." Then a third and fourth will troht with scorn the opinions of the others and give their own particular esti mates. For the sake of argument. let lit; iiu igine that the participators in the dis cussion ar» ail of exceptional stature — that titoy are well over six feet in height. Now tell them calmly that standing an a level with the sea, looking over •'.'e water <:u a clear day, the very farthest it is possible to see is a clis ":ince of approximately t...

AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW. Domestic Diplomacy. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 7 January 1915

AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW. Domestic Diplomacy. "Silas Honeyburg and his wife do so much quarrelling that the whole, town is talking about it," remarked the druggist. "I guess it's another ease of incompatibility of tempera ment." "Incompatibility of grandmothers 1" grumbled the village patriarch. "That expression always did make me tired. Most of the differences in Australian families are due to a lack of ring generalship, or diplomacy, on the part of the husbands. What we need is a text-book for the benefit of men who contemplate getting spliced, and I am thinking of writing such a work myself. I have had much experience in matrimony, and if I should write down all I know about it in chaste, simple language that would appeal to the average understanding it ought to do much good. "I have beeu married i.o my pre sent wife for almost seve'i years and there never has been a hint of divorce ---harmony prevails under our humble rooftree all the year round.

£200 FOR A GERMAN FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 7 January 1915

£200 FOR A GERMAN FLAG. For over forty years there lias mouldered in the heart o£ every oyal Frenchman—and Frenchwoman oo—the spark which has become now te flame of patriotism and intense feeling against the German people .vhich has swept over.. France. It may be summed up in the one word "Revanche".—revenge for the .(itiless indignities and heavy burdens heaped upon the stricken nation by the victorious Prussians in the war jf 1S70-1S71. And nothing is more indicative of the spirit which has ueen nursed by tiie sons and daugh ters of France during the last two generations than a little incident of twenty years ago which has been re called by the capture of the first Ger .nan flag. When in ISIlo the will of M. de I'lunkett, a Parisian theatre director, was opened, it was found that he had made a bequest of ,£200 to "the French soldier who should be the first to capture a German regimental flag when the day came for France i.o claim a 'revanche' for the defeats of 1870."

Wit at the Bar. Sir Edward Clarice and Sir Ed ward Carson were once engaged in an ecclesiastical law case, wlien the latter, who stands six feet three inch es, while the former measures only five feet two inches, towering above his opponent, said with sarcasm, "Of course, my learned friend here is om niscient in such matters!

WAR PR0PHET8. Strange Forecasts of the Great Conflict. That clever Parisian chiromancer Mine, de Thebeo, whose prophecies' in the past have proved so startling ly correct that she has been consult ed by kings and statesmen, wrote in her almanac for 1914, issued last win ter:— "This year we will pass through the gravest and most decisive hours, it will he a year especially happy for France, in spite of blood, in spite of tears, and in spite of uneasy omens Victory! victory! We have nothing to ear from the trials of fate. France ivill emerge in strength, reconstituted •;jy war." Regarding Germany she said: "All is disquieting in her destiny. The person of the Emperor is himself threatened by fate. It is not the sagle of victory he bears on his hel met." The Allies will find further encour igement in a letter written in 1S70 bv Smile Ollivier, Premier of France, at .he beginning of the Franco-Prussian \'ar, to the King of Prussia after the hlrd Napoleon's fall.

I MAKING DAD CAPITULATE. "What! Another new dress?" Pop slinger stormed, as his daughter non chalantly made her request. "Why, you had one not more than a minute ago!" "Tlie very idea!'' said his daughter. "I haven't had a new one since—why, not for ages." "One minute ago," repeated Pop slinger firmly. "The younger genera tion is going to the dogs! When your mother and I were young, the girls lmd two new dresses a year—a cali co one and a woollen one—and they looked just as pretty and had just as many beaux as you extravagant young things now. They thought of some thing else besides running their poor old father into bankruptcy!

As they entered the village a large dog ran at them, barking furiously One of the fishermen kicked it awa\ carelessly. "Aren't you afraid he'll go for you if you do that?" asked his friend. His companion looked sadly and sorrowfully into his face. "1 only wish he would!" was the other's reply. "I'd chance almost anything to be able to go home and say I'd had a bite!" The Danish policemen have orders at Christmas to take great care ol revellers who have lost their heads They are taken to the nearest police station, examined by a doctor, and then escorted home in a cab.

Smartly Rebuked. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 7 January 1915

Smartly Rebuked. The smart boy is sometimes in tolerable, and deserves the rebuff lie occasionally gets. An old, well-inten tioned'lady and a smart youtli were the only occupants of a railway com partment. After the train moved out of the station the youth took out a cigarette and, lighting it, puffed away —much to the old lady's disgust. By and bye she said: "Don't you know, my boy, that it is wrong to smoke?" "Oh," replied the youth, as he emit ted a volume of smoke from his mouth and nearly choked the old lady, "I smoke for my health." "Health!" exclaimed the other, after the effects of the smoke had been overcome. "You never surely heard of anything being- cured by smoking?" "Yes, I have," declared the youth, in a tone intended to set off his su perior knowledge; "that's the way they cure pigs." "Smoke away, then," promptly re torted the old lady, as she settled herself in a corner; "there's prob ably hope for you yet!" The funny things that happen to other people are always ser...
