Married in Haste. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 28 January 1915

Married in Haste. Housewives who find the servant problem a source of endless •worry may set some consolation from the fact that in no country is the matter a perfectly simple one. Miss Evelyn Adam, in "Behind the Screens," in ■Taipan, describes some of the difficul ties of keeping servants in that coun try. The maidservants are untrust worthy, but they are gentle and cheap—while they stay. Unfortun ately they are fond of playing the vanishing trick upon their mistresses. A lady in Tokio had a valuable ser vant of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced in the poetic name of "Oh aru San"—the Honorable Miss Spring. One day at teatime Miss Spring did not appear. The kitchen was deserted, the kettle was cold: half the luncheon plates lay im mersed in a bowl of soapy water, the other half stood on the sink, ready to be put away. The next morning Oharu San reap peared, and demanded the fragment of wages due to her since the begin ning of the month. The lady asked why she was leaving so sudde...

Taking to his heels, he ran for dear life. "If I can only make that fence," he said, as he tore along. Just as he got to the fence the bull got to him—with a perfect rear-end i collision. High, higher in the air wont the spinning Patrick, and on the descent he landed, in a bruised and punctured heap, on the other side of the fence. Clotting to his hands and knees, he faced the bull. It. was pawing and tearing up the ground at a great rate, whereupon Patrick smiled sadly and said: "Faith, if it was not for ver bowin' an' scrapin' and yer humble apolo gies, ye baste, I'd be t.hinkin' that ye chucked me over the fence intintion ally."

HUMORS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915

HUMORS OF THE LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is the oratory of counsel at times, but one would liave some difficulty, perhaps, ill finding a more amusing example of highfalu tin legal language than the following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter": — "Slander, gentleman," said t lie learned counsel, in a libel action, "like a boa-constrictor of gigantic size and immeasurable proportions, wraps the coil of its unwieldy body about its iHiforhinate victim, ami. heedless of the shrieks of agony that come from the utmost depths of its victim's soul, loud and reverberating as the night thunder that rolls in the heavens, it finally breaks its unlucky neck upon the Iron wheel of public opinion: forciug him first to despera tion. then to madness, and finally crushing him in (he hideous jaws of mortal death." No less amusing was the address of the American Judge Itodgers to a prisoner who iiad been convicted in his court in Louisiana. "Prisoner, stand up!" lie said. ".Mr. Kettles, this cou...

THE FALKLAND ISLANDS [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 4 February 1915

THE FALKLAND ISLANDS By F. A, Newman. The sinking of the German cruisers Scharnhorst, C.snoisenau, Lelpsig and Nuernberg by the British Squadron under Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Sturdee off the Falkland Islands, has brought into prominence a group of isjets which to most people have been terra incognita. Until the publication of the news announcing the British victory which has so adequately avenged the Chil ian disaster, how many grown-ups could have correctly located the Falk lands? Schoolboys and girls would, 110 doubt, have been abie to put their ciders right, but the fact remains that the inhabitants of this strange group, if not "the world forgetting," have almost been "by the world for got." The islands lie about 250 miles east of the southermost portion of Pata gonia, and N.E. of Cape Morn; or, more correctly speaking, in latitude 1 51 dog. to 52.31 deg. south, and long itude 57.10 deg. to G1.20 deg. west. In such an out-of-the-way corner of the world, with a somewhat inhosp...

On the Berlin Agenda. The German Emperor dreams, it i.s suid, that just as Napoleon gave out crowns and kingdoms right, and left to his brothers, so will he, when he is master of Europe, set up all his sons as kings. France he intends,'I am told (says the London correspondent of the "Daily Despatch") as a king dom for his second son, Prince Eitel Fritz, who will be known as "Kouig von Frankreich." In Paris they are highly amused over this. Their an swer is, "We will talk about that in Berlin." The itinerant, photographer was very urgent. "A picture post card of your house, sir, with your family at the gate. Ualf-a-crown a dozen—you can't say that's unreason able." "Don't want any," said the house holder.

Dolly Torrington slept very late the next morning. She had "given special orders that she was not to be roused for any reason whatever. .Margaret, 011 the contrary, rose un usually early. She had been too rest io?s, too excited, too nervous to sleep. Towards the dawn she had drop lied into a heavy kind of doze, but from this she had been roused with a jerk. Something had happened the night before which had shown Mar garet very clearly that the lack of •sympathy between her mother and herself, which she had so often de plored, was likely to become even more pronounced. In her charming, frank, girlish fashion she had done her best to help her mother make the ball a great success, very often standing aside to provide partners for other girls. As a matter of fact, though she had been so happy, .Margaret wanted to dance. She had lo...

The Clergyman Knew. Here is n good and true one; (if Kitchener's Army. During the recent, heavy rains the men returned one evening from a route march to find their tents inches deep in water.

The commanding olli cer thanked him, but remarked that he hardly liked the idea of using a sacred edifice for that purpose. "My dear sir," replied the good-natured cleric, "pray have no scruples on that point—not one of my parishioners ever has!"
