SHORTHAND MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

SHORTHAND MACHINE. The stenotype—a small machine designed to displace shorthand writing—the use of which has been successfully demonstrated—is similar to aii ordinary, typewriter and has 23 keys. The working of it is based on pho netic spelling. Several letters can be printed by striking one key, while it is possible to strike two keys with one finger. The 22 keys represent seven consonants, and every combination of sounds used in speech, together with about 3 50 standard abbreviations—the sole codc that the operator must mas ter. With the machino a speed of over 180 words a minute has been attained. The machine is not being sold to the general public, the sale being restricted to students of business schools qualified as competent ope I rators in order to keep the devico from becoming n drug ou the mar I '<et

* Ko national pastime has afforded more liuuocent amusement than "Dae Royal and Ancient." Tliere are caddie yarns," "Mr. Foozle stories, jokes of the mighty oaths that gol fers make, anecdotes of clergyman at golf, and, in fact, there is a humor ous side to every phase of the game. Perhaps one of the most character istic of these stories is told of two lawyers, om of whom stammered. They decided to spend their summer holidays in playing golf, and they fixed on Bembridge, in tho Isle oi Wight, a course known for the rough ness of the ground. As they arrived at the seventh hole—one which is particularly difficult—the one who did not stammer remarked : "I did this hole in four strokes yesterday." " Well, all I c-c-can say," remarked his friend, "you're a 1-1-1-1-1 " "Steady, old chap—steady !" inter rupted tho other. "You're a 1-1-1-lucky beggar !" con cluded the stammering one indig nantly.

I WELL PREPARED. i An austere and somewhat pompous Highland minister came to the house of one of his flock, a shepherd, to baptise a child. On entering, he solemnly asked : "Are you prepared 9" To the pastor's horror the fond parent gave this staggering reply, : "Ou ay, munnister, I have got a grand ham for tea." "I mean are you spiritually pre pared ?" thundered the minister. "Af coorse I am ; oh, yes. I got two bottles o' first-class whisky fra the inn,"- answered the unperturb able Celt'. "Even a policeman can't arrest the flight of time,'.' said the funny, man. "Oh, I don't know," rejoined the inattcr-of-fact person. "Only this morning I saw a policeman enter a sided oor and stop a few .minutes."

"DON'TS" FOR CRICKET CAPTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 24 February 1914

DON'TS " FOR CRICKET CAP TAINS. Don't put your special friend in where he likes, unless he is a good enough bat to justify the position. In the same way, don't let the fact that you dislike a man alter his place in the batting side. Don't let your men get slack. If anyone won't take the trouble to come to a cricket practice, he's not .worth including in the team. Don't forget that when you have a visiting team you should see every 1 comfort possible is provided. 1 Unless you happen to be a bowler, don't put yourself on to bowl when the regular bowlers are being knock I ed all over the field. Don't lose heart when things are going against your side. A confident captain has often inspired other members of the team. Above all, don't forget that you are captain, particularly in the field. The fielders, except when the bowler* makes a few alterations, are to go where you tell them. I —.
