The candidate bore the thing good huImnoredly for a time. but at last Ihe gave his questioner a hint that he was taking up valuable thne by -.k ing silly questions.

Poetic Justice. Little thilgs cain be very trying at times, especially when they happen to you. Mr. Fry thought something like this when, one wet morning, he could not find his umbrella. Like most married men, he believed in the max I, 2hviten it trouble blame your "I say, 2iary," he shottted, "twltat on earth has happened to my new num - brella? I brought it home hlst night, and now it's gone; and, of course, it's raining like mad!" "Why, it's hardly raining at all!" said alary. "Biut last night it was simply pouring 'henm tihe vicar left. and so I lent hinm your umnbrellh" "What a silly thiing to do! I shall nev4see it again now, so I may as well buy another to-day!" "How can you be so wicked, Perci' val?' As it the vicar would stoop to stealing your umbrella!" "Stoop to stealing it be hanged! I oorrowed it from him a couple of months ago!"
SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 May 1914
SCRAPS. Under an order of the Police De partment the horses are to be taken away from the constables at Ber wick and Pakenham, and bicycles substituted. In our opinion this is a retrograde movement. Fancy a constable dressed in the uniform of a mounted man scurrying over the country on a tin " gee-gee" looking for a criminal. There is a dignitied appearance about a uniform man, mounted on a gallant steed; but the same man huddled up on a bike would be neither useful or ornamen tal. Many of the roads in the dis tricts named above are unrideable dluring tihe winter months, and the police will not travel them, whereas on horsceack they can negotiate the bad ro:rlds with which the Shire of fBerwick is blessed. Why not allow the police to retain their horses and have bicycles as "accessories before the fact!" Mr Helhir, hon. secretary of the Berwick Football Club acknowledges the r.2ceipt of the following donations -Mr G. L. Wilson and Mr J. Triado, [m i/ each ; Mr WV. G. a'Beelelt, Mr W...

The Grateful Father. A young man, at the risk of his life, saved a beautiful girl from drowning. Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything that makes life dear to me. Which reward will you take -flfty thousand pounds or the hand of my daughter?" "I'll take the daughter," replied the heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get both the girl and the money. "You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not lail up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my daughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."
