Through German Spectacles. At a certain lecture the other day, the lecturer was speaking about the breadth and solidarity of the British Empire. He said that "the sun never sets on the British domini ns." A German in the crowd asked: "Do you know why that is?"

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 9 July 1914
BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his ■ sweetheart. He is modest. He feels as if the shopman will suspect that he is engaged if he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. ""Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. He pretends to examine them critically, but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is going to get > a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are passed over in review. He selects none, rie walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shopman, who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries them on liis-finger. He never p...

Recently he crossed in a little tourist steamer to Rorschach, on the Swiss shore. As a simple traveller he en-, tered a restaurant and ordered a sandwich. "You have a beautiful dog there," , remarked the waitress. "Yes, more beautiful than I am," the King replied. "That is true, said the girl sim [ ply; "and certainly he is far young | er." "You are perfectly right." ! When he had eateu the sandwich, the King departed, leaving a gold piece on the table. The girl ran after him, to say that he had forgotten his change. "Oh, no," the King said, "you are to keep the gold piece as a remem | brance of the King of Wurtemberg, i to whom you have paid the unaccus tomed compliment of sincerity!"
