Why the Editor Is Away. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 21 December 1901

Why the Editor Is Away. A fine, plump fowl arrived at the oflico of a country newspaper a few days ago by parcel post. Each of the compositors had mado up his mind to annex the bird, but these hopes were cruelly disappointed by tho editor himself; who, having espied tho winged one, and regarding it as one of his rightful perquisites, promptly took it homo and dinod off it. V The following morning a letter came to the oflice from a subscriber. It ran : 1 Dbau Mil. Editor,— By an earlier post I send you a chicken. It has been tho source of much discussion amongst a few of us, and we have decided to let you sottlo the dispute. What we want to know is, ' What did it die of ?' ? The editor has gono on a sea voyage to try and get over it.

Calling him up, therefore, he introduced him to the creditor, who showed him the account. ' Wai, square,' said ho, ' 'taint much use of trying, i guess and calculate. I happen, to know that critter. You might as well try to squeeze ile out of Bunker Hill moiiu ment as to c'lect a debt out of him. But any how, square, what will you give sposin' I do try ?' ' Well, sir, the bill is ono hundred dollar.,. I will give yon— yes, I will give you half, if you will collect it.' 'Greed,' replied the collector; 'there i* no harm m trying, anyway.'
