WILLIE'S PUZZLE; 1 "Mother/' said little Willie, who had Just boon corrected for mak ing a slight departure from the strict path of truth, "were yqu al ways good when you were a little girl ?" "Yes, always." "And didn't you ever tell stories?" No, never." "Did father ever tell them, then?" he said. "Certainly not," she replied. "Nor grandma?" "No." "Nor grandpa ?" "No, of course not." Willie's brow contracted for a mo ment ; then he gave a sigh. "Well, what T can't make out," ho observed, thoughtfully, "is whero I got the habit from." A bucket was onco the innocent cause of a terrible war. Nino cen turies ago some soldiers of Modcna stole a bucket as a Joke from a public, well .at Bologna.

A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OF "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN "OLD-TIMER." [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

A South Pacific Echo. REMINISCENCES OP "EARLY DAYS" WITH AN " OLD TIMER." An elderly, retired South Seals land trader has supplied some in teresting information regarding the trade customs of the Pacific Is landers in the early days. "X have 110 objection/' he remark ed, "to your making use of my re marks, as long as you withhold my name, as I do not wish to be drawn into any controversy, sinco you plainly see, I am too old for that sort of thing now." On being assured that his wish would bo respected, he proceeded to narrate the following :-"Before we whltemen came to the Islands to trade, the ' niggers' did not have many wants, but after our arrival on the scene their requirements underwent a rapid change. Most of them suddenly discovered that jews* harps, tobacco, medicines, china arm bracelots, and especially live dogs, were absolute necessities of life.

Caulfleld Racecourse [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

Caulfleld Eacocouree A deputation from the citizens of Caulfield, introduced by Sir Frank Madden, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, on Wednesday waited on the Minister of Lands (Mr Lawson) concerning theconduct of the trustees of the Caulfield racecourse reserve. Sir Frank Madden said he was a member of the V.A.T.C., but notwith standing this, he had no hesitation in saying that too much attention had been devoted by the trustees to the development of the course in the inlerests of racing alone, and too little had been-.done; in the direction of turning parts of the course into proper recreation grounds. He was fully appreciative of the desirability of the maintenance of racing, which led to the best stamp of horses being bred. But the people of Caulfield had a magnificent park in their midst suitable lor every kind' of game, and they did not want only horses to be developed. They wanted men de veloped-(Hear, Hear)-and the way to develop men was not to hamper them in the pursuit ...

THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

THE JUDGE WHO DIDN'T JOKE. The funny sayings of a judge who never joked form one of the finest collections of judicial humour over published. This is "Arabiniana," a selection of the dicta of Sergeant William Arabin, who sat aB a judge at the Old Iiailcy from 1830 to 1830. For instance, his remark to counsel : "Jf you can show precisely at what moment the offence was com mitted, and prove that the prisoner was not there when he did it, ho could not possibly' have done it." And he sagely added, as an after thought : "We cannot divest oursel ves of common-senso in a Court of Justice." Another axiom he delivered him self of has been fathered on many other occupants of the Bench : "If ever there was a case of clearer evidence than this case, this case is that case." 1

NO FINER MEN IN EUROPE [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

NO FfNER MEN IN EUROPE The physique of the Montenegrin is superb. The Hew ' T. T. Xorgutc,. F.R.CJ.S., in an article on "Aljnte negro as T" Saw It," printed In thv "Daily Chronicle," «leclnres that there is no finer, men in Europe*. While the women are unremarkable^ the average height of the men must/ bo well oyer six feet.

Eyebrows and Character. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

Eyebrows and Character. 1 It is now conceded that the Greek eyebrow is quite in accord with the conception of mere physical beauty in women. Like the rose bud mouth, it docs not indicate tho highest order of intelligence, and the arch is expressive alwnys of greater* sensibility and greater sense of character. Scant growth of the eyebrows in variably denotes lack of vitality, and external applications are use less to. promote or produce a growth .until the general health improves ; on the contrary, heavy, thick eye brows indicate a strong constitu tion and great physical cnlurance. They are not beautiful on a wo man's face, however much they may signify either mental or bodily vigour, and when they are not only lieavy» but droop and meet at the nose, they are disagreeable, and are said to accompany an insinccro and prying nature. Romantic ^omcn usually have a very well-defined arch in tho centre of the eyebrow, 'whilo a sense of humour is indicated in tho arch nearer the nose. Long,...

MITSON'S DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

MITSON'S DOG. . « Mitson's shop in our placc has been closod for a week or so. Mit son was perfectly wlllitig to have it open, but circumstances rendered it necessary for him to suspend bu siness for a while. There had been a good many burglaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keep in his shop at night. The man that sold the dog said that its one strong peculiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop, and Mitson locked up for the night and went home. When he came down in tho morn ing the dog flew at him as soon as he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Mr. Mitson's legs ; thereupon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then he went after the man who sold the dog ; but h» had gone out of town to sec his aunt, and wouldn't be'baclc for a month. Mitson then undertook to coax the dog through the crack of the door ; but the ani mal still maniftsLed a resolute de termination to chew Mitson's legs, and so Mitson closed the door again and began t...

Prahran-Malvern Tramway ALLEGED EXCESSIVE SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

Prahran-Malvern Tramway ALLEGED EXCESSIVE SPEED. In reply to a letter from Malvern council, complaining of excessive spued of tram cars, the manager of the Prahran-Malvern Tramway Trust (Mr Dix) on Monday night wrote that body, intimating that the time table was such that there was no necessity for a greater speed than 20 miles per hour at any time, and the men were forbidden to exceed that .speed. Although there may be isolated cases of the 20 miles an hour limit being exceeded upon a section of the track for short distances, he (the writer) was copvinced that there was no systematic infraction of the limit. As a fact, upon' a reccnt test made with a car equipped with a speedometer it was found that the maximum speed attained upon level track was 27 miles per hour' Upon a test made over that section of the road where the speed' was complained of it was found that the free running speed reached a maximum of 23 miles per hour for a short distance, and in this test no stop was made be...

Strathcona's Cheque. -- During his lifetime the late Lord, Strathcona made two boasts-one that he never lost a paper once it got into his hands, and tho other that he never received payment for his services to tho Canadian Pacific Hailway. His executors in going through his . papers found on fllo uncashed . cheques from tho Pacific from the inception of the company until tho tiniQ of his death, and they have now made claim on the company for the payment of these. Tho» Ca nadian Pacific has announced that it will honour every cheque, so that the heirs to the estate will ro ceive a considerably augmented sum. In tho same way Lord Strath cona did not draw ,,his salary as High Commissioner, ' and the added windfall of tho heirs will run into many thousand pounds. -"Globe.

THE FIRST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

THE FJHST CONVICTS OF BOTANY BAY. When Captain Philipp sailed for Botany Boy with a batch of con victs, on Hay 18, 1787, probably neither skipper, crew, nor prisoners imagined that they were making his tory. Yet the little fleet, with its 564 male and 192 female convicts '(besides soldiers, sailors, rn:l ofli cials); was practically the founda tion of our great Commonwealth. Considering the comparatively slight crimes for ' which transportation was inflicted in the "good old times," and the merciless nature of the'"jus tice" dealt out to the lower classes for slight deviations from the path of virtue, it is quite possible that Captain philipp's gaolbirds and their warders contained an appreciable proportion of what .is needed to build up a new colony. The success of the experiment is its best excuse, though no'one who has studied, the black side of the trans portation system would desire to see it renewed in its entirety. The allotment of prisoners as "servants" '(practically as sla...

Big Wars from Little Causes. TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

Big Wars from Little Causes. TlUFL/ES .WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. ^ While, of course, important prin. ciples and interests are involvotl, the fact roniaiiiH that America's ul timatum to Mexico was the direct outcome of Huorta's refusal to fire the salute demanded of twenty one guns. It seems on absurd trine for two countries to sncriflcc humnr life for. The affair, however, pro vider but another illustration of the manner in which tittle sparks some times bring about big international blazes. The war in which wo lost th United States, for example, began because the citizens of Boston emp tied n. number of ten-chests into Bos ton harbour. They objected to hav ing their ten. taxed for the benefit of England, and showed their re sentment by tipping it into the sea. The result was that hostilities bo gan nt oncc. And it was really because a few people lost their heads in the ex citement of the moment that South Carolina began the war between : North and South jn America;' While...

GLORIOUS WAR! [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

GLORIOUS WAR t Gabriel Suchet, who gained his baton and dukedom in Spain, was the only prominent French corps commander to emerge from that grim', inglorious warfare with repu tation enhanced. All Napoleon's other generals impaired their credit, and even Suchet smirched his name, on which the storm of Lerida, in . Western Catalonia, May 13, 1810, left, a mark not te be whitewashed over by admirers. The city /ell, after a brief siege, but Suchet, wanting the citadel also, gained it by methods simple, effec tive, but brutal, perhaps the great est atrocity perpetrated by any combatant throughout the wnr. They consisted in sending detach' mcnts through the streets with or ders to thrust the population, along with the wreck of the garrison, into the ditch and over the drawbridge into the citadel. Pressed on by the French, they filled the castlo yard before the governor could cxclude them. Then, £he castlo being cratn . med with 15,00.0 men, women, and . children, Suchet bombarded it with...
