The Middleman's Paradise. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 24 April 1914

The Middleman's Paradise. Shoes are going up because leather is going up. Leather is going up because hides are going up. Hides are going up because they are scarce. They are scarce because the but chers are killing less cattle. The butchers are killing less cattle because there is less demand for meat. There is less demand for meat be cause the price is too high. Tlio price of meat is high because cattle are scarce. The cattle are scarce because the demand is so heavy. The demand for cattle is heavy be cause hides are going up. Hides are going up because leather is going up. Leather is going up because shoes aro going up. And that is how the customer is squeezed at every turn.

Thrft. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 24 April 1914

Thrft. Sir Archibald Geikie, wlio has re ceived the coveted Order of Merit, is a great collector of Scottish anec dotes. One of his best is about a funeral in Glasgow, where a stranger took a seat in one of the mourning coaches. The other three occupants of the car riage were rather curious to know who he was, ami at last one of them began to question him. The dialogue went like this: "Ye'U be a britlier o' the corp?" "Xa, I'm na brither o' the corp." "Weel, yo'll be his cousin?" "Na, I'm no' a cousin." "At onv rate, ye'll he a frieti' o' the eorp?" "Xa. I'm no' that either. Ye see, I've no' been very weel masel'," the stranger explained complacently, "an' my doctor lias ordered 1110 carriage exercise, so I thocht this wad bo the cheapest way to tak' it!"

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 24 April 1914

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. Somo time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. Ho as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and tome judges, especially in America, are be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to be fed during the whole o£ that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration of his sentence Brant declared that he had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another 0110 again, so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he Is sent to prison, where he is made to work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of the money that ...

our FROM THE SHADOWS By IAN GR0SV15N0K. Nobody ever thought of cnlllus James Hallerton by any other namo than that of Plain James. Fortune | had not been kind when It fashioned Ills features. Without being precise- I ty ugly to the point of repulsion, lie | was singularly ill-favored. With the exception of his eyes, there was no redeeming point about his face. The | nickname the country had given him fitted him to a nicely; still, though | correct itt detail, the knowledge he desorved it rankled in the owner's I breast. At no time did it hurt him more , than when he fell In love with the prettiest girl in the village and, in | dong so. discovered he was in the running with Steve Batwlcke. Hand- I some as a Greek god, it was but. little | surprising that Daisy Martin should incline her ear more readily to the hitter's lure of accent than to that of Plain James, it was a good month before Hallertou made this discovery. When lie did ho allowed his jealous re-1 sentment of his own imper...

What a Wife! "l'ooh!" said a man in an omnibus, as ho and other business men were 011 their way to the City, "my wife is the most methodical, careful, neat wo man you ever saw.

FOR ROSIE'S SAKE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 24 April 1914

FOR ROSIE'S SAKE By Janet Carter. Snow, heavy, driving snow, covered Eugland beneath its spotless mantle from the Tweed to the Pal. In Scot land the railway service was disorgan ised. In the Midlands drifts had clos ed down many a branch line. On the Great Southern system it threatened J.o^ be the same. Not lor years had there been so continuous a tali as the one which now roared across tho lit tle country junction of Crayworth.
