The Worm Turned. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

The Worm Turned. ' The other day Sir Gilbert Parker, M.P., referring to Lord Uosebery's re murk that "most books in it library ought to be burned," told of a lively exchange of compliments he once lmd with a publisher. > Sir Gilbert had been pointing out that in many cases, owing to the in ability of literary men to look after themselves, publishers made far more money out of books than their authors did. ' The publisher remarked that what Lord Rosel)ery should have said was that, "It was not most books, but most authors who should be burned." "That may be true," retorted Sir Gilbert, "but judging from the pub lishers' share of the profits of the au tjiors' labors, most of the authors were too green to be burned!"

Intention Only Credited. A fashionably-dressed young man strolled into a small Scottish church while 6ervice was being held. The time for the collection came round, and, wishing to draw attention to him self, he flung his penny (as he thought) • down on the plate with a crash. Immediately after so doing he discovered, to his great dismay, he had given half-a-crown in mistake. He at once got up and followed the old sexton, and asked to be allowed to get back his money. The old man shook his head and said—"Na, na; I canna gie it back to ye. Ye gied it to the Lord." The young man argued for some time, and at last gave it up and ex claimed impatiently—"Well, I suppose I'll get credit for it in heaven." "Na, na," replied the old man, "ye'll only get credit for the penny."

WHY WE SHAKE HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

WHY WE SHAKE HANDS. When a gentleman meets a lady of his acquaintance In the street, he In variably raises his hat by way of recognition. This form of salute Is a relic of by-gone days of chivalry, when knights rode and walked about clad in steel armor to preserve them selves from the sword-cuts and spear tbriists of their enemies. ■When such a knight entered any house as n finest he at onco discard od Ills helmet to show that ho trusted to the protection of his host, and wa3 not afraid. For the Bamo reason he bared Ills head when talking with a lady he knew, and the cUBtom has been continued to the present day. A good many years ago there was most certainly a reason why two men should shake hands when they met. If they did not recognise each other .they would each grasp the other's weapon-hand as a precaution against treachery. From this it became cus tomary to surrender" their lighting hands freoly to one another.
