HUMOR AND MEDICINE. Doctors Who Make You Smile. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912

HUMOR AND MEDICINE. - Doctors Who Make You Smile. Dr. John Radcliffe had for next-door neighbor, for some years, Sir Godfrey Kneller, the famous painter, to whose beautiful garden the physician 'was given access, until his servants abused the privilege by stealing the j-owers. 'I am sorry,' wrote Sir Geoffrey to Radcliffe, 'that, owing to tne aamage aone by your servants to my garden, I shall have to keep the door into it locked in future.' 'Tell your master,' cried Radcliffe to the messenger, 'that he may do anything ' he likes to the door so long as he doesn't paint it.' The physician chuckled as the messenger departed on his errand, but the last la.ugh was not with him, for, a few minutes later, back came the servant with the re tort, 'Tell Dr. Radcliffe that I ..can take ainything from him — except his medicine.' Radcliffe's tongue was as rough as it was witty. On one occasion, when King William, whose physician tie was, uncovered his dropsical ankles for in spection, the doctor...

"Hoppy's" Devotion. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912

'Hoppy's' Devotion. By Flora Dixon. His real 'name was David — plain David Baring. 'Probably no one but himself and the old vicar who had christened him were aware of this, for as long as the villagers could re member he had always been known as 'Hoppy-Giggy.' He had come by his nickname in a very natural way. He had a springy way of walking, and this was accentuated by the fact that his legs appeared lone in nrouortion i to his body, because of a slight hunch j between his shoulders. It was a very slight deformity caused by a fall in his early babyhood, when, at the death of both his parents, he was handed over to the charge of a careless fos ter-mother. As a baby he had been a contented, cooing child, and when old enough used to laugh brightly at most things. 'Thee giggles as much as thee hops,' said a villager to the child when quite a youngster. 'Aye, a regler 'hoppy-giggler,' ' as sented another, and from that day the name stuck to him. Not that his nickname troubled Hoppy at a...

Stratford Hunt Club. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912

Stratford Hunt Club. The opening hunt for' the season of the above club took place on Tuesday last, and proved a great success. Soon after 9 a.m. the members of the club began to assemble at the meeting place on the Lakes' road, and at 9.30 there was a mnster of 21 gnns and 13 beaters. The first drive was in Mr Francis' paddock, and as a re sult two foxes and a brace of hares passed out or existence, the Reynards falling to the guns of Messrs Archie Thomson and J. Lee. ' The next drive was in one of Mr Hamlyn's paddock, and here Reynard's luck was good. Four foxes were raised by the beaters but only one came within range of the guns, and he got off unscathed owing to the fact that Mr Archie Thomson had fired both barrels at a hare just as Master Fox happened along to see what the excitement was over. How ever, eight fine bares were tagged. A move was then made further along the river, and a third drive re united in another fox coming to an untimely end, Mr Geo Woodhouse, junr., bein...

TO REACH A MAN'S HEART. By "Married-at-Twenty-one." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912

TO REACH A MAN'S HEART. By 'Married-at-Twenty-one.' The. way to reach a man's heart is not necessarily through his stomach. This brutal truth only applies to men after they turn thirty-five. Under this age, and frequently over it, the golden key which unlocks the shut door is sympathy. Not bright eyes, golden hair, rosy cheeks, trim waist, good temper, though all these help ; but the one Ti.totnl. tc nnm.n-Ti Trrithni.t nf muio wmi-u id cuuugu mmuui. ciiij ui. these charms — and without which they are usually of no avail — is sym pathy. I used to wonder once upon a time how it was that one of the plainest , girls I knew had on an average four proposals a year, while others who were dashing, stylish, and far more accomplished, never got one. Then one day I saw her with a man and I knew at once how it was.
