His silelet ona facts given in my 'letter is proof positive that he admits I was right, and he wrong, on the questions of disloyalty, etc. It is an ndlitssinn of defeat when his whole reply is a matter of No case o abuse the othen side lor writer). He essays to criticise my letter from a literary standpolnt, but mhits to discover the only fault (if it can le called so). It was written in the Yankee way, brief, to save space (hut none the less clear); not put together in English writer's methdd. I challenge even a competent critic to find other fault.

Dear Sir,--Here's to the Old Bird who was caught with chaff, and at the same time may the chicken never be hatched that will scratch on his grave. iReally, Mr Editor, when I read the two efforts, signed "John Mnni"!' and " Abused Councillor," I had the best ladgh I've had for - months. Of course, you'll understand " birdts of one feather flock together." Oh I but weren't those letters typical 1 (Quite middle-aged and respecil-like). 'rhe attempts at humour cut like sledge.hammers; I would call them " baby elephants" in tsie joko line, or re. gular little steam rollers, wouldn't you 2 Oh I and wasn't the poor abused one rude; he quite forgot his manners, and wrote that nasty word d-able (1 must refer back to it), altogether too shocking, positively "fowt."

PRISONERS IN CAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 April 1918

PRISONERS IN CAGES. The suggestion that the Kaiser ought, when captured, to be freely exposed to public view in an iron cage is a reminder of the ingenio,?s use made of the latter in the "good old days" by the Germans themselves When the three great Anabaptist leaders were executed in 153b they were exposed to the publico gase in iron cages brng on the walls of the Cbnrrb of St. Lambert,, in Mnmster pm-Stein. Catherine II. of Rusina, bad her wig-dresser confined to a cage because the big-wigs at Court. complained that the tonsorial gentleman had big ears; and Edward I, of England,. caused the Countess of Buchan and the sister of Robert Bruce to be lock ed up In two large iron cagee, which were hung on to the tarret of the Castle of Berwick. in 1306. Alexander the Great had Caelisto nes, the Greek philosopher, kept for seven months in an iron cage, be cause the latter denied Alexander's divine right to rule ; and for eleven. years the French Cardinal Balne had an unique opportunity o...

THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 19 April 1918

THE COUNCIL. A council's lot is gloomy now With overdrafts and bills, But still they battle on somehow With municipal thrills. And yet at times have spells of bliss, Like "Stranded in Arcady," When they get letters such as this From some indignant lady : Who wants to know the reason why The Ranger was so rude Because some berries met his eye ; When he did once intrude. And from Professor So-and-So Who on the Council rounded, Because the Ranger, don't you know, His cattle had impounded. The Ranger says they are absurd, He has to do his duty, And swears he will not be deterred By wisdom, wealth or beauty. And though it gives the writers pain Who think they are aggrieved, Such letters written in this strain Are mostly just "received." Then from the Bankers they do hear That they are overdrawn, And if its not reduced they fear The Shire goes in pawn. And so they must discuss the way To find the ready tin So that they can be there to pay And keep their credit in. But its got to be done i...
