I Ended Happily. | As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she had been reading and Houlfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. | "What's the matter, MaHa?" asked ! the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" | "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, | "Just this very minute." | "1 s'poBe," said Henry, resuming his i paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered Maria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of I sickness, an', what's more, the story I gives the name an' the price of the medicine what cured her." Men always think a woman inter esting when they hear she is pretty, but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.

BOWLED OUT. About once a mouth this paper re: ceives picture postcards and other photos from WeBtralians abroad, par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra vellers on camel-back in the vicinity of. the Pyramids, and Sphinx. More "than, often we have .been in clined to .doubt, the, ibona-fldes of eome of those "phol'oB; as the senders were known to have" gone straight ,on through the Suez Canal to'Europe, not stopping at Egypt, as shown in the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of Egypt. Last week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a well-known Westralian and his wife were seen" seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to 'be faked in iby the double photo process, the picture of the tour ists and...

Grown-Up Children. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

Grown-Up Children. A railway guard related an amusing little Incident the other day.' "At an' out-of-the-way little station in the North," he Bald, "a party of working men wished to boot to a town in the Midlands. Unfortunately, the booking clerk had only a limited number of tickets for that journey at his disposal. "Eventually he got out of his diffi culty by dividing the pieceB of paste- • board and issuing children's tickets to the party, at the same time explaining to me how matters stood. "'They've paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, *so you must see 'em through.' ' "I had almost forgotten the matter, when a ticket-examiner at B came to me and remarked, with a sorrowful shake of the head: "'This under-age dodge is' getting too "warm!' " 'What's the matter?' I asked. "'Matter?' he echoed, disgustedly. 'Why, here's a whole carriage full o' children wot plays cards, drinks ■whlo-: ky, and 'wears whieksrsl'" ■'

SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he Baid, "firstly, be cause if I did it would offend some members ot my congregation; second ly, because I do not think that it Is desirable; and, thirdly, 'because I think that it would be wrong for me, -with my meagre stipend, to 'bet. I Blmply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive them away from religion. If they can race and bet •with a clean conscience, I do not think that God ' will be offended. There is nothing wrong with clean sport any more than with stock exchange Speculations, and yet many people get up and denounce the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad • to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, and I believe that it -will continue to improve. I have much in common with sporting men, and I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that re...

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. The recent announcement in a con temporary that the XJlster imen are trying to institute a demonstration, when every man, woman and child •will -wear a flower as a token o£ their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one how often flowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a | white, this flower has been a popular emblem. Apart, from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and ! white of purity, our national em!blem is the rose; the Legitimist Party of Prance formed the League of the Rose in imitation of our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondnesB for white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their party, hut the idea 'was not adopt ed. The primrose, it is said, was Bea consfield's favorite flower, and has ibeen chosen "by his followers, who formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, while in France the...

Naqua,the Bushman [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 9 April 1914

Naqua,the Bushman By Perceval Gibbon in the Pittsburgh "Sunday Magazine." The old yellow-fanged dog baboon that was chained to a post in the yard had a dangerous trick of throw ing stones. He "would seize a piece of rock in two hands, stand erect, and whirl around on his heels, till momentum was obtained, and then let go. This missile would fly like a bullet, and woe !betide anyone who stood in its way. The performance precluded any kind of aim—the stone was hurled off at any chance tangent—and it was rather bad luck than by any kind of malice that guid ed one of the 'boulders through the window, across the kitchen, and into a portrait of Judas de Beer, which hung on the wall not half a dozen .feet from the slumbering Vrouw Gro belaar. , She bounded from her chair and ballooned to the door with a silent, swift agility most surprising to see in a lady of her generous build, and not a sound did she utter.
