A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 18 June 1914

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ish midshipman's adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a rickshaw. There was a keen breeze blowing, but it was prevented from howling merriJy through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if his face were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions,. which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile nam? ofli cor's glowing but. beardless counten ance from afar be thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and ordered the coolie t...

DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914

DID YOU? Did you give him a iiu; He's a brother of man, And bearing about all the burden he , can. Did you. give: liim a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the"' smile would have helped, him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancicd, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you . show him the road, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the light, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? Did you ask what it was-way me quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Wore you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 25 June 1914

POINTED REPLIES.' It is very amusing sometimes to' hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people ;to the questions they are asked. It Is said by some to be an "extra gift," for,' no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given,, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowin^.are rather interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't' decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from-the prison or tiio asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only tho living, but also tlu dead." On an examination paper on "IIow we arc Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, tile Home Secre tary, and all tho other members of the Cabinet, should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then tho happy i...

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. Ono of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a View of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-giycerino were brought down' by rail from Derbend. o.rd deposited over-night in a large' shed, which was .iused by . the men' as a sort of canteen. The steward of this; establishment, a Greek named Darios,.opened one of the drums for some reason best known to himself,, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin: glass used for mixing vod ka. This: he-placed on a'shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there entered a workman named.
