The Immutable Sex. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
The Immutable Sex. Merlin: I believe our climate Is changing. 1-ong: Think so? Merlin: Our winters seem to be getting warmer. Long: Well, the women wouldn't wear enough clothes, bo the climate had to change. Tlie women wouldn't. Mrs. Frltz-Rrown thought that she had solved the great servant question when she employed a bright young Norwegian girl. in attempting to acquaint the girl with her new duties, however, she was surprised at her ignorance. Finally, In despair, .she asked. "What can you do?" The face of the new-found treasure brightened, and she replied: "I can milk reindeer." ' It was a minstrel performance, and In the intervals between the songs the usual jokes were being perpetra ted. "What am de difference between an old maid and a married woman?" asked Sambo. "I done give it up," replied Bones. "Why." explained Sambo, "de old maid am Iookiu' for a husband ebery day, an' de married woman am look in' for 'lm ebery night!"

NO LOOTING UNDER WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
NO LOOTING UNDER WELLINGTON. Although our civilisation was a hundred years younger In the time of the Duke of Wellington than It Is to-day, the British Army was even in those days an army of gentlemen. Wellington sternly repressed loot ing, and outrage of any kind was se verely punished. The iron Duke's biographer, G. R. Gleig, tells a story of the Peninsular Wars which the Germans would quite fail to understand or appreciate. "Everything was dono which pru dence and humanity dictated to es tablish between the invaders and the invaded the best understanding. With English and Portuguese regiments strict discipline prevailed. Brigand age was unknown, and as for indivi dual acts of outrage, when they oc curred, severe retribution was exact ed. "For example, having called upon the people, by proclamation, to pro tect themselves, Lord Wellington ap plauded certain peasants who, in re sisting an attempt to plunder their village, shot one British soldier, and brought another to headquarter...

WHY ATHLETES GET "STALE." [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
WHY ATHLETES GET "STALE." The question of short versus long periods of practice in training the hu man muscles for any particular kind of work is obviously one having far reachiiig application. Some interest ing experiments on this subjects have oeen carried out by Dr. K. S. Lashley, of Johns Hopkins University. Ac quisition of skill in arcnery was se lected as the subject of observation. Twenty untrained persons were di vided into three groups. One group shot five arrows with the English longbow per day; another twenty shots per day; and the third, forty shots. The results showed conclu sively that the group shooting only live times a day improved in accuracy with less expenditure of time In prac tice than was required by either of the other groups Jor the same amount of improvement. A report on the experi ments says: "The relatively greater jtticiency of short periods of practice continuing for many days is in accord ance with the results of the study of animals and of speech habi...

In Dofenco. Mr Alex. 11. Tuvsum, proprietor of the "Inglewood Advertiser," writes to us as follows : "I do not desiro to occupy a great dent of y.mr sp;icc, but would ask autliciont to enable mo to, in sonic measure, def. ml the "Itiglewood Advortisor" against the chargo of imposition in making a charge for advertising ;heBjnd Hospital Sunday gatherings. Mr W. II.

OLDEST INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
OLDEST INDUSTRY. The pearl fisheries of Ceylon are said to be the oldest Industry in the world. For over three thousand years the pearl-oyster harvest has been gathered by the natives, who, skilled in diving, have handed down the industry from one generation to the next. Of late years, the remuneration has been un certain. Some time ago the Covern menl leased its rights to a foreign con cern for a specified sum annually. I'earl-Ilshing in Ceylon today is some what of a speculation. The greatest care is taken lest when the shells of the bivalves are opened any of the precious gems be lost or stolen. A very strict watch is kept over the natives who are employed in uiis kind of work, but in spite of the greatest precautions some of the ■smaller stones are frequently conceal ed. The refuse from the shells is very carefully examined subsequent to this first examination. Even the dried dust of the oyster Is carefully sifted.
NEEDLES AND PINS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
NEEDLES AND PINS. The "advanced" woman Is general ly one whom man has left behiud. Mao is born with a love for old clothes, but woman Is born with a passion for new ones. The fact that a woman always knows how to get around the weak side of a man suggests that she makes instinctively for the Bide Uie rib came from. According to Schopenhauer even the perfect marriage remains perfect only for five years. But, then, Scho penhauer was a German philosopher. When a man becomes tired of his wife's tongue he seeks his club. The same thing happened in the Stone Age, but in the Stone Age the club was more effective.
THE FATAL LETTER (Translated.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
THE FATAL LETTER (Translated.) The Comtesse Marguerite de Clare montfe lay back upon the cushions of her carriage, seeing always before her eyes the glance that Prosper de Tre port had given lier. It was very cold weather, but it was no chill breeze penetrating the warm nest of her coupe that made lier shiver and draw the costly furs more closely about her trembling form. No, it was the memory of a vanish ed love, of hope dispelled, of happy days that would never come again, of a secret known only to herself and the man whose coupe had just crossed with hers as it whirled towards the Nouveau Cirque. ^ Whose had been the fault? It was hard to snv. A hasty word on his side, a hasty action on hers, the mis chief was done, and everything chang ed to both of them. The brilliant col ors of their life's kaleidoscope turned to a dull grey that had little of lively color in it. Time passed on. For the Comtesse Marguerite, in the whirl of society, the treadmill of the woman of fashion. For Pr...

A Study for Electors. _\Var has given us a new iudus- I trial world.

Here in Australia we have had a | fair share of this expansion of' national functions. The Common wealth and the States are handling Australia's wheat, the Federal authority has bought Queensland's sugar, and, if Mr Hughes has his way, will go on buying it as long as Labor is in power.

LUCKY PENSIONER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
LUCKY PENSIONER. One would scarcely think that a man who assisted Charles 11. to es cape after the Battle of Worcester would transmit a pension to his heirs to-day: yet such is the fact. He is, or was some little time ago. a Peter borough groom, who must bo thank ful that Uie Guelphs did not repudi ate the debts of the Stuarts. A family in France draws a pension of a similar sort. One of their ances tors was in the suite of the Dauphin of France in 1755 when he went out shooting, and that royal gunner shot him accidentally; and, by way of compensation, Uie sum of £240 per annum was granted perpetually. Al though the Government of France lias passed from monarchy to empire, and empire to republic, and back again several times since, that pen sion is still paid. We also have a link with an inter esting past reminiscent of Dickens and Little Ilorrit in the bailiff of the Marshalsea Court, who still receives a modest pension of £50 as compen sation for the abol'tion of his oilice some s...

It Was Paio. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 December 1915
It Was Paio. As the gas bill of a "portable" thea tre showing in a provincial town for a month had not been paid at the week's end (when it became due), a man appeared on the Monday night following to cut off tiie supply, if the bill were not paid on the spot. The doorkeeper remonstrated with him. pointing out that the manager ! was 011 the boards at the time, and could not possibly leave the stage for an hour—the gas-man might call then. "No," said the gas-man, obdurately; "I'm going to cut it off now." "Hold hard," said the doorkeeper; "I will go and tell the manager." Disguising himself in a huge red cloak and a great felt hat with a drooping feather, and with a sword at his side, he walked on to the stage with the words: "Behold, my lord, the man stands at the castle gate waiting to be remunerated for the glimmers, and, if not seen Instantly, darkness threatens us." The Manager (taking in the situa tion): Go; I follow thee. Sergeant Thunder was as regimen tal as it was possible ...
