Original Correspondence. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
Original Correspondence. To the Editor. Sir,—Would you kindly permit me to trepass on your space in regard to a subject that in the estimation of many warrants a little attention. For the number of years I have rer sided in this shire I have had oc casion to watch the progress cr otherwise of our State school child ren, more especially that of my own. At the close of each year's tuition it is somewhat surprising to notice the results of examination in your journal from schools other than that of Foster. At the Toora school favorable results have been issued several years past, also from other schools in the district, and why the Foster school lacks in this respect is a matter of wonder. Two junior scholarships and one teaching scholarship were recorded for the 1914 at Toora, and at Bennison two merit certificates were obtained. Now Mr. Editor do you think these schools should be allowed to rank higher than the local school, which is supposed tc be of a higher grade, and again, is it...

"In Other Words." [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
"In Other Words." A page-boy at a certain hotel is in | iiis spare moments much given to the study of the best English literature. Recently he was paid his wages with a small fine deducted for a breach of regulations. Indignant, the boy said to the man ager, "Sir, if you should ever find it within the scope of your jurisdiction to levy an assessment on my wage for some trivial act alleged to have been committed by myself at some inop portune moment in the stress of one's avocation, 1 would suggest that you 1 refrain from exercising that preroga tive. The failure to do so would of necessity force me to tender my re signation." The manager, tottering, reached a chair, and in gasps asked the boy what he meant. "In other words," said the page boy, "if you line me again I shall cluick tiie job!"
HOW FILMS APPEAL TO THE DOGGY MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
HOW FILMS APPEAL TO THE DOGGY MIND. That dogs can see and understand ; picture plays is undoubted!}' true, i In a North of England town there is a dog that does not flinch or ap pear bored at seeing such things as ; murders, massacres, travellers stran | gled by apes, arson, lynchings, gal loping" horses, express trains, floods, earthquakes, guns or pistols. This canine apparently regards them as silly folk doing silly things. J.iut if this dog views a film of a fox hunt, a menagerie, or a scene with dogs in it, he gets highly exci ted and barks loud and long. Once he managed to get "behind" at a cin ema theatre, after a leopard film had been shown, as he wanted to meet the big cat in the flesh. A picture that moved him to fury was one of a man who grew horns and butted after drinking a glass of goat's millc. On another occasion he went al most mad with joy at seeing a colleen boing presented with a little pig by her lover. Recently an entertainment was ar ranged for prize-bred dogs...
THE BELGIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
THE BELGIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM. . iThe National Antliem of Belgium, "La Brabanconne," is set to lighter music than the dignified British and Russian compositions. Its author and composer were both Belgians, and the song was written to meet the pub lic need at the time of a great crisis in the country's history, the Revolu tion of 1S30, when Belgium repudia ted its so-called "amalgamation" with Holland. The music was the work of a repu table musician of the time, Francois van Campenhaut, a violinist, a fine tenor singer,-' and a composer. "La Brabanconne" constitutes Campen baut's principal claims upon posterity. Campenhaut concentrated his efforts upon giving the soldiers of the Revo lution a good marching tune, one which would carry along the burn ing enthusiasm of .Tennoval's wordr •without emphasising any of their deeper qualities. lie caught some thing of the impulse of Rouget de Lisle in the composition of "La JIar seillaise." and even reproduced a hint of the rhythm of the great ...

ALL ABOUT NELSON'S COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
ALL ABOUT NELSON'S COLUMN. Tho well-known column to Nelson ! in Trafalgar Square, perhaps one of the best known monuments In the world, has been described as the ug liest monument to the greatest naval hero. That, of course, was Ihe critic ism of an artist, but ugly or not, no Briton would replace the familiar col umn, however beautiful a design might be brought forward. It was on April 10, 1S40, nearly 35 years after the death of Nelson, that a committee accepted an offer to erect the column in Trafalgar Square, for £17,SG0 in two years. It was not erected till 1S43, however, and the total cost ran into £45,000, more than double the original estimate. The foundation stone, a block of Dartmoor granite weighing 14 tons, was laid on September 30, IS40, with practically no ceremony, but it was not till 1SG7 that the monument as we now know it, was finished, when ■ the famous bronze lions designed by Landseer were unveiled, also without my ceremony. Extraordinary though it may seem, peo...
The Light Comedian. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
The Light Comedian. Mr. Cyril Maude is as good a story teller as he is an actor. The other day he was telling of two women who were having a chat about their respective sons, on the progress they were making in the world. "And what's your son John doing now?" asked one of them. "Oh, John's on the stage; he's a light comedian," replied the other. "Deary me! And what might a light comedian be?" "Well, in me son's case it's this. He plays a silence part behind a black curtain with his mouth to a hole, and in front is a candle, and when the cow boy 'ero shoots at the candle John blows it out."

NOT A SMOKER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 11 February 1915
NOT A SMOKER. When he gets a moment's relaxa ' tion from his duties as head of the Sal vation Army, General Brarnwell Booth, who has just completed forty years with the Army, can tell an excellent story. He was telling a good one the other day of a certain Judge who is notorious' for his disposition to assert the dignity of his ofiice. Ho was tra velling to London in an ordinary first class compartment, when a gentle man entered and began to smoke. "You may not have observed, sir," said the Judge, "that this is not a smoking compartment." "Isn't it?'' said the gentleman, but ho went on smoking. Boiling with anger, the Judge brought out a visiting card, on which was in scribed "Mr. Justice ,' handed it to the smoker and said: "That's my name, sir, I will report you at the next station." "Will you?" said the smoker, glanc ing at the card, which he put in his copper-pocket. In due course the train stopped, and then the smoker got out and walked down the platform to the "way out."
