The Express. THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1916. Electoral Rolls. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
tlic Cspsfisjs. THURSDAY, MAY 7, 191G, Electoral R0II3. THE police have added over a hundred thousand to the names which figured on thu Electoral rolls of the State. Few suspected that the army of dis franchised was so hi«, or that when it vanished thoso who had formed it would add so largely to the voting power of the Metropolitan districts. Possibly the latter fact might have been surmised, for a not inconsiderable proportion of Melbourne's population floats from suburb, to suburb, resting nn j where long enough to catch the eye of officials doing I heir work in ordinary routine way. But, be all that as it may, the figures now practically com pleted show that Victoria's great problem, the due division of her in habitants between city and country, is moro acute than ever. According to tho old rolls, the country electors outnumbered tbo Metropolitan by 41,3-12. Those who studied the figures and who realised their significance, found them depressing. Th^y showed that far too large, a...

A Question of Honor. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
A Question of Honor. . Among other 'anecdotes of Univer sity life, Dean Hole tells of an occa sion when there was some doubt as to the locality of a city mentioned In a Greek text, and the lecturer address ed a youth who had just come up from the famous Shrewsbury school. "Now, Mr. Bentley, you are a pu pil of our great geographer, Dr. But ler, the Atlas of our age, who carries the world not on his shoulders, but in his head, and you can probably en lighten us as to the position of this ancient town." "I believe, sir," was the prompt re ply, "that modern travellers are of opinion that the city ought to be plac ed about ten miles to the south-east of the spot which it now occupies on our map." After receiving respectful thanks for the information, the informer told Dean Hole as they left the lecture room that he had never heard of the .venerable city before, but that for the honor of Shrewsbury and the re putation of Dr. Butler he felt himself bound to say something.

Real Sarcasm. Said the friend: "A girl I ltuow told me she didn't like the tango-she found that in it she was more danced against than dancing. "This same girl attempted to tango with a fat man at the ball. The fat man was a great bungler and he knew it. He gasped, as they hobbled about to the strains of sweet music. " 'It's awfully kind of you to dance with me-me, the worst dancer in the room!' "Then be trod on lier foot for the sixth time, and the girl replied: " 'Oh, how can you say so? Why >ou hardly aeem to touch the floor.'" JWo iucreaso our wealth when we lessen our desires.

"One for the General." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
"One for the General." A few years ago, at a Colonial sta tion, a very pompous general was mak ing his annual inspection of a famous Irish regiment; now, although he bore a great reputation as a martinet, he had seen 110 active service, and was one of those who judged a soldier's worth by' his conduct sheet. There was serving in the regiment one Patrick O'Doherty, who had been through three arduous campaigns, and who was the proud possessor of Ave war medals, including one for "dis tinguished conduct on the field." Un fortunately for Patrick the piping times of peace had reigned for six years, and, owing to his weakness for strong drink and the allurements of the pretty girls in the garrison town, he was constantly in trouble, and only that morning had been deprived of his last good conduct badge, oil the usual charge of "drunk anu out of bounds." As the general passed down the ranks he was attracted by the magni ficent physique of the gallant but in corrigible Irishman, whose left ...
