My grandmother used to toll us with pride of an instance which occurred at a time when, a new church edifice had been ' proposed, and was •rader warm discussion. Oreat-grand iathor thought this a worldly and un necessary expense, and emphasised •lis opinion by pausing in the midst ol his sermon one Sunday, saying ini- . pressively. as he fixed the somnolent ' members of his congregation with a ' stern look— "'You are talking about building r new church.

HOBSON'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 24 July 1914

HOBSON'S CHOICE. The phrase "Hobson's"choice" first came Into use In the seventeenth cen tury; and had its origin in the eccen tricities of one Tobias Hobson. This gentleman was a carrier who lived in Cambridge, and died in the year XG30. In addition to his ordinary carrier's business he kept a stable and let out horses to the students at the univer sity. He made it an unalterable rule, however, that each animal should have an equal period of'work and rest, and would never let one out of its turn. Consequently, instead of being allowed to select the steed they most fancied, his customers had to take the one that stood next to the door. If it did1 not meet with their approval, they hadi to do without a ride. Hence the proverbial expression, "Hobson's choice,", used to signify a choice with out-an alternative.
