PARTED FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 12 September 1914

PARTED FRIENDS. During a trial in Tipperury, Curau made a scathing attack on a land agent. Two days later an enraged gentleman burst*into his bedroom in Dublin, before the counsellor was out of bed, and, flourishing a horsewhip savagely, said:— "teir, I'm the gentleman you insultr ed in the eourt-iiouse in Olonmel in the presence of the wnole country, and I'm here to thrash you soundly." "What!" exclaimed Curran, indig-' uantly, "You cull yourself a gen tleman, and yet you mean to strike a man when he's lying down?" "No, betiad," protested the agent, scorning to take a mean advantage of his enemy,- and sitting down. "I'll just wait, till you get out of bed, and then I'll give it to you hot and heavy." "Troth, if that's the way of it," said Ourran, "I'll lie here you change your mind." And he turned over on his other side. . The agent laughed and the counsellor laughed, and he who came to whip stayed to dine, and the pair parted the best of friends. .

The world is eager for something new, which, however, sim ple it may be, will save labor, or ex pense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure reduce waste.

NOTES ON THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 19 September 1914

NOTES ON THE WAR. The weet.s war news commenced favorably for Britishers with the news of a complete transformation of the situation which has existed for the past couple of weeks. Evidently the gradual retreating of the Allies before, the advancing Ger mans, although the former were in most instances teore than holding their own against vastly superior numbers, was not carried out without a great and definite object in view. This object has been achieved and as a result we find a demoralised Ger man army fleeing for their lives before the victorious Allies, who are in hot* pursuit. Describing the retreat of the Allies the American press »nd military critics describe it as the finest military achievement in history. Th-i Allies having defeated the Ger mans in the great battle of the Marne, pursued the enemy with great success. The German rout was turned into a complete disaster The Allies advanced; along the whole front, keeping continuous contact with the fleeing Germans ' - It is ...
