FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914
FEATHERED WITH BOTTLES. Itaron Kenyon, at one time Lord Chief Justice of England, loved to hear himself talk, and his summings up were at times extraordinary exam ples of flamboyant speech. Here is a specimen taken from "Law and Laughter": Addressing a butler convicted of stealing his master's wine, Lord Kne yon once said:-"Prisoner at the bar, you stand convicted on the most con clusive evidence of a crime of inex "presslble .atrocity-a crime that de files the sacred springs of domestic confidence, and is calculated to strike alarm into the breast of every Eng lishman who invests largely in the choice vintages of Southern Europe. Like the serpent of old, you have stung the hand of your protector. For tunate in having a generous employer, you might without discovery have continued to supply your wretched wife and children, with the comforts of sufficient prosperity, and even with some of the luxuries of affluence; but, dead to every claim of natural affection, and blind to your own ...
HOW TO MAKE A WILL. A Thing that Everybody Should Know [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914
I HOW TOAKE~~ A: WILL. A Thing that Everybody Should Know Too much stress cannot be ladnupon the fact that it is the'bounden duty.of every, person whols? either the present or prospective owner-of any,%property whatever-=and .especially" when' this prOperty be In the forlnaof!real estate -to make a will. The making of a. will s. a much neglected duty, especi ally with women, and yet it should be the desire of every person to leave his or her business matters in such condi tion that, in the event of death, the survivors may, with the smallest ex Ienditure of, time, energy and money, settle tile deceased affairs iIn the man ner which they know to have been the testator's wish. There is a very general impression that to dabble in legal matters of any kind whatever means considerable ex pcnse; but it may be as' well to point r.UL that a lawyer, as a rule, regulates his charges not only by. the amount of work done, but by tile ability of the client to pay. Go to any reliable solicitor, a...

When Mrs. Bellairs met her son he had contrived to smarten himself up "and looked much less wild and shabby than on the previous day. She made him join her in the tonneau of her motor-car, and there she slipped the 'money into his hand. His face lit up with an amazing joy. "Oh! mother, you are a brick!" he exclaimed. "Is it as much as I asked for, mother?" "Yes, Ralph; there are fifteen hun dred pounds in notes in that bundle." "Moth! " exclaimed the young man, "you really are a wonder! How ever did you get it?" Mrs. Bel.alrs became very white. "Don't ask me, Ralph. I can never tell you-never. This is a secret be tween you and me." "Does my stepfather know?" "No, Ralph; and you must never breathe the subject to him. If you do you will kill me. As It is, I have been almost killed. I never, never...
