POCKET CHEQUE-BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914

POCKET CHEQUE-BOOKS. Pocket cheque-books are now being issued by certain banks. The new comer is a dainty little affair, hardly seven inches -long and two and a half inches wide. It fits comfortably into the breast-pocket without doubling, and~-keeps the cheques uncrumpled and unfrayed. Whether the innova tion will be generally followed is re garded as very doubtful. Hankers arc very conservative gen tlemen, and attempts to reduce the size of the ordinary cheque-book in the past have been resolutely oppos ed. Chief objection to the small Bizc comes from the Clearing House, where the difficulty of handling the small size is said to create great de lay and confusion.

I said to Lord Roberts, 'My lord, v.e are only waiting for the signal ; had you not better get in ?' I had scarcely spoken when the train start ed, and, with the aid of a policeman I had to push Lord Roberts into the moving train." When I tried "to get my own back," as the vulgar phrase has it (writes a correspondent), I was laughed at for my pains. The other man knew the trick, which reilly is such a mean one that I have not the least compunction in making it com mon pro...

AUSTRALIAN AND CANADIAN RECIPROCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 23 April 1914

AUSTRALIAN AND CANADIAN RECIPROCITY.

The Interstate Commission has heard and approved of Mr. Chick's propositions, and it is probable that much good will thereby accrue to the Commonwealth as well as Canada. Amongst British communities there ' is a strong inclination to allow trade to develop itself along the" line of least rcsistcnce ; to assume a calm, non-committal "stand and wait" at titude, and to take the openings j that the gods provide, rather than ! to grasp and force opportunities with I the invincible optimism and sublime self-confidence and energy which has made America what it is.
