HUMOROUS COLUMN. | A Little Domestic Comedy. Over an Innocent Mouse. There was nothing (or it but a mouse trap. They had stood the peat of mice aB long as patience allowed. The janitor had been appealed to in vain He had made one or two ineffectual at tempts to abate the pest, but as the agent of the building would not allow him to use poison for fear the viotims would have the bad taste to die on the premises, and because there was no appropriation for mousetraps forth-! coining from the man of leases, the head of the family, spurred 011 by the pro testations of his wife, went to a hard ware store and called for the needed article. He had supposed that buying a mouse-trap was a simple thing, but when he saw the number of patterns he waB bowildered. ' Do you want to catch them alive ?' asked the clerk. ' Well, I should say I did. If I wanted to catch them dead you don't suppose I would require a trap, do you ?' inquired the head of the family. ' I mean,' explained the clerk, ' do yo...

Kilted Highlanders. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 February 1902

Kilted Highlanders. A capital story of Sir John Maodonald is told by a Canadian contemporary. Sir John was at a reception in the west, and a Bishop from Belgium was present. As the party were being escorted by a body of men in Highland costume, the foreign Bishop, seeing the bare legs and kilts, asked why these men were without trousers. ' It's just a local oustom,' gravely re plied Sir John. 1 In some places people take off their hats as a mark of honour to distinguished guests ; here they take off their trousers.' No Rose Without a Sting* He stood where the maid had stood— beaido The beautiful snow-white rose— And he lovingly bent his head and sighed, And he buried hiB mouth and noae Among the petals so sweet and rare That the fair maid's lipshnd pressed, And a bumble-bee that waB hiding there Proceeded to do the rest.

Powers of the Pom-Pom Gun. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 26 February 1902

Powers of the Pom-Pom Gun. When we hear that " the enemy was supported by a pom-pom," we do not realise ..what thia really means. It seems strange to the uninitiated that one small piece of artillery can be of ao much value ; but the oase alters when it is stated that the pom-pom can fire one pound shells at the rate of 300 a minute. The cartridges are like over grown rifle cartridges ; they are about six inohea long, and loaded with a shell which explodes when the missile strikes anything. A minute's firing miglit cause some 3,000 whizzing, jagged bits of iron to be mowing troops down. When used within a 3,000 yards' range the moral effect of the pom-pom -is enormous, and few weapons are held in greater dread.

Wellington's Ingratitude to His Troops. There ia yet one trait of Wellington's character which is perhaps the moat distressing uf all—the ingratitude which he showed to the soldiers and officers who had made him what he was. There are words of hia on record concerning hia men whioh can never be pardoned, I and words, too, not spoken in the heat of action, but in the leisure of his later years. Take, for example, a passage from Lord Stanhope's " Conversations with the Duke of Wellington," where he is speaking of the rank and file—" They are the scum of the earth ; English soldiers are fellows who have all enlisted for drink. That is the plain fact—they have all enlisted for drink." Again, speaking of non-commissioned officers, he observed—"Nothing would be bo valuable aB the English soldiers of that rank if you could get them sober, which is impossible." , , . It was not only on the rank and file that the Duke'a indiscriminate censures used to fall. He waB quite as reckleaa in denoun...
