RANDOM READINGS. THE EDUCATED BABU. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

ItANDOM BLADINGS. THE EDUCATED BABU. The liabu, or native Indiiln, is educated upon English lines, in the schools of India, and often obtains employment as a clcrk, hotel fiooK keepcr, or waiter in various English establishments. Babu English is mainly based upon classic models such as Shakespeare or Milton, and their use of ponderous quotations from these great tomes of English literature in place of ordinary conver sation is often most humorous. A visitor at one of tho big hotels at Calcutta asked the hotel Babu to call him at five o'clock in the morning, and, being a heavy sleeper, impressed upon the man the absolute necessity of being aroused in good time. The Babu evidently sought for a suitable phrase to meet the necessity, for, to the visitor's surprise, he was roused by the diligent servant in sonorous tones in these Miltonic lines: "Awake I arise 1 or be for ever damned I" Needless to say, the visitor at once jumped out of bed.

TRIFLING MISTAKE [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

TRIFLINC MISTAKE A conceited littlo tradesman raised a loud commotion in a printing oflico because one or two errors had crept into a handbill which had been printed for him. "I wrote, 'Uomo to my establish ment for anything you need in tho glass lino/ and you have made the idiotic mistake of printing 'gas' for 'glass',5' he stormed. "And tho worst of it is, thousands of the handbills have been distributed in the streotB be fore I detected tho blunder." Apologizing profusely, tho printer called in tho young compositor who had sot up tho bill, and sternly asked to explain tho error. "Well, sir, to tell the truth," stam mored tho youth, "tho gentleman's writin' was so bad I couldn't for tho life of me make out what article ho was advertising so 1 asked the other fellows if tlvoy knew anything about him. 'Why,' sos thoy, 'you must mean that little gasworks in tho next streot," and I folt sure X should bo safe in put tin' 'gas' after that!"

MAXIMS IN DEALING WITH WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

maxims in dealing with women. Never say to your wife, "Before I was married I used to do this and do that." She will resent it. Before you were married is a long: period in your life in which she takes no in terest, and she would rather never hear it mentioned. If you set any value on your tim«, never attempt to prove that your wife is wrong in saying this or in think ing that. A clever man does not cymmit such a mistake in matrimony. He agrees or remains silent. Luna tic asylums are full of men who have tried to argue in matrimonial life. If your husband cannot afford to give you expensive jewels, have enough delicacy never to mention the jewels of Mrs. So-and-So before him. The most poignant suffering that a man who loves his wife may perhaps have to endure is to feel that he can not afford to give her dresses and jewellery as expensive as those of her female acquaintances. Whenever you have an opportunity, give your husband a chance to appear at his best. He will praise you for i...

ANCIENT ORIGIN OF THE HARP. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

ANCIENT ORIGIN OP THE HARP; The history of tho piano counts as a day compared with the harp. "We have authentic records that as early as 1800 B.C., the first lyre was ovolved from the mind of the high priest of Osiris, who, in one of his daily walks along tho banks of tho Rivor Nile, found an empty tortoise shell spanned with dried ligaments. Happoning to strike it, h'e noticed that it gore forth pleasing sounds, and ho "at onoe made an instrument on tho plan of tho tor toise shell. From the lyre, it was hut an easy step to the harp. Milesius, one of the Phoenician priests, carried it with him in his conquest to Ireland, and thoro ho planted it among the musio loving Celte in 1260 B.C. The royal instrument bocame a controlling feature in Druidical worship, and tho harpist, or bard, ranked with royalty, tho prophet and priest. Tho Druids advanced the harp from eleven to 32 strings and crowned thoir efforts in its improvement by tho evolution of tho pillar, which has evor sinco found ...

AFTER THE REFUND. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

AFTER THE REFUND. Time, 3 a.m. A bell was ringing furiously. But, tired and lazy though he felt, he could not ignore the sum mons of that clarion call. He was a chemist; and chemists, like doctors, must be prepared at all times and in all weathers to fight in the great battle against death. So, at any rate, reflected our chemist as he made his way downstairs. But at the door he found no pale faced boy clamouring' for the medicine which was to save his dying mother —but a reveller of the previous even ing, in urgent need, so he said, of soda-water. The chemist's feelings were strong. So, also, was his business instinct. Accordingly, he provided the custom er with what he wanted—in fact, gave him a siphon of soda-water, and charged him a deposit of five shilling! on the siphon, with the remark: "I'll return the five bob when you return the siphon." Then he retired to bed, seeing a clear profit of at least two shillings and sixpence. Two hours later again the bell rang; again the chemi...

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

USEFUL HINTS. Fnurte.cn and a half per cent, of an W is protein. Give feed rich in pro tein. Lean meat, fresh cut clover, lu cerne and wheat bran arc also posses sed of protein. When face and head swell a pood deal and the discharge from the nostril is profuse fowls have croup, or influ enza. Irregularity of habits is likely to accompany colds of all kinds. There is practically no difference in fool value between the CR"R" with a brown shell and the one with a white shell. This is the conclusion arrived in tests made at the California ex periment station. Laying hens arc in their prime dur ing their first and second seasons. Generally spealcinff, prpod layers arc fine-honed. This is seen in the shank, which is slender and relatively short, that is, compared with other birds of the same breed.

It must bo sufficient to supply tho bodily needs (tho maintenance of blood, bones, fea thers, etc.), and leave a bit over.

FACTS AND FANCIES. o Jnok Tar Doos Not Lllio It, Sailors have curious dislikes, Hence I sumo people say they arc superstitious. I by which is meant that tlicy arc afraid ( of things without being1 able to give a good reason for their {ear. They dis like the bird thai is known as the , Stormy Petrel, or Mother Carey's Chickcn. This bird is very active I when the sea is rough, Hying so closely to the surface of the water as to make one think it really runs upon the waves. This habit caused it to be i called "Petrel," or the "little Peter," ] in allusion to St. Peter walking on the sea. As it is usually seen in stormy weather, the sailors dislike it bccausc they regard it as fortelling a gale. One would imagine this was a useful hint i to the seamen to be prepared for the tempest.

Books In Anolont Romo, It has boon pointod out that in old Homo books wore actually produced and sold raoro easily and quickly than thoy aro .in modern timos.

HIS SUGGESTION. By the restraurant pay-oesfc stood | the manager, greeting each out-going and in-coming guest with a seraphic, managerial smile. The smile grew broader, and, if possible, sweeter, as an elderly gentle man, looking well fed and comfortable, approached to pay his bill. When he had collectcd his change he .turned and noticed the beaming manager. "By the way," he said, "you say on your bills-of-fare that you arc al ways glad to receive suggestions from customers as to any possible improve ments that occur to them!" "That is so, sir—that is so!" an swered the smiling one. "Have you any suggestion you wish to make?" "Well—er—yes, I have. You state that you make your own sausage' this establishment, do you not?' "That is correct, sir—we do!' "Well, then, I would suggest that you let someone else do it. Good morning; 1"

CHAPTER XIX. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 March 1914

CHAPTER XIX. Mr. Marshall Stead, left to him self and his own thoughts in the solitude of a not too spacious or comfortable cell, felt that the s.tua tion in which he now found hi:* hitherto confident personality placed \Vas one which had great disadvan tages. Until that moment he had never upon any occasion known what it was to be nonplussed; full of resource all his life (or, at any i rate, since his schooldays), he lu*d j invariably converted every situation j to his own good. He was sure now ] that he could make something out I of this, if only he could regain his libertv. But the walls of his cell were 'tis thick as those of the old Castle, to all appearance; the win- . dow was a mere pane of dull glass covered with iron bars; the door looked as if it would never open again under any circumstances. Obviouslv, Mr. Stead was in what is vulgarly callcd a tight place; but being philosophic, he sat down on his stool—which was all that, was provided to sit on—and considered matters. ...
