Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 24 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty, box in rront of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, and aBked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re* plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "Iso, I can't say as I do. You see 1 mortgaged this claim for. four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tbey foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He conies twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some Idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about aB exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better He down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, ...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 24 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poom, "The PriBon* er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevun pa* tdot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Cliillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements havo been rcaliy writ ten In gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two hooks had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been suillclent to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whoso name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Pur...

Advising the Prophet. He entered the meteorological office, and said, in his jerky way: "This 'ere's where you give out weather predictions, ain't it?" The clerk nodded. "Well," continued the old mail, "I thought as how I would come up and give you some useful tips." "Yes?" said the clerk, politely. "I've watched very carefully, an' I find that ye ain't always right." "No; we sometimes make mis takes." "Course you do. We all do some times.

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 24 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict: morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so' ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things- which worry us most are trifles when we com© to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree ot life ...

Ho was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'BobB/ cool and easy, and sees the kid.

'Can't,' says 'Bobs/ jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.'

High. A rt Photography Display. High art photographs ill every j sense of the term aptly describes the j new Kaster exhibit now offered to ' the public at the famous studio of Richards and Co., Ballarnt. The! whole scheme of their spacious win- I dow has been remodelled, and the j general verdict, we feel assured, will be that a decided improvement in the effective display of each sub ject has been obtained. The pictures , themselves are quite up to the high degree of artistic excellence, for which the firm of Richards and Co. has gained world fame. Among the | central studies, the most prominent' is a life size head'study of a lovely i little boy. Very fine is the compan ion picture of a young girl gather ing wood-violets. Another large i subject is a graceful young girl, draped in full length in classical ancient style, stands holding a large scarf in most simple, yet artistic pose, the background supplying an cient Grecian architecture, is most superbly handled, and the texture o...

Wasted Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Wasted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket' to pay his passage back to England, lie thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that he would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he vould go without food that length of time. He realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never be able to get back home. So he went on board the steamer and bought his ticket. He^closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the dining-room, he politely de clined on the ground that he felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to eat," he said, "even if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as 'well be drowned as starved tc de...

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. | A Little Joke Which Failed. Jopklns had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had pro cured a complete paper and road the missing item. This struck Jopklns an a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he resolved to put it into practice. So that night when he went home from the oflico there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. .Top kins had secured it and was running her eyo over the bargain ads., and working her way, alter the manner of hor sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopklns observed a sud den and suspicious frown ovcrcast hor ...
