Intention Only Credited. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
Intention Only Credited. A fashionably-dressed young man strolled into a small Scottish church while service was being held. The time for the collection came round, and, wishing to draw attention to him self, he flung his penny (as he thought) down on the plate with a crash. Immediately after so doing he discovered, to his great dismay, he had given half-a-crown in mistake. He at once got up and followed the old sexton, and asked to be allowed to get back his money. The old man shook his head and said—"Na, na; I canna gie it baok to ye. Ye gied It to the Lord." The young man argued for some time, and at last gave it up and ex claimed impatiently—"Well, I suppose I'll get credit for it in heaven." "Na, na," replied the old man, "ye'll only get credit for the penny."

Then He Saw Red. Editor—Why do you persist in com ing here? I tell you I want facts, not fiction. Authoress—Oh, X don't wish to sell any of my stories. I am writing a short serial, entitled "The Ugliest Man On Earth," and I came in mere ly to obtain local color. "The' •' fare ' at a 'certain 'boarding house was very poor. A boarder who had been there for some time, ' be cause he could not get away, was standing in the hall when the landlord rang the dinner-bell. Whereupon an old' dog that was lying outside on a rug commenced to howl mournfully. The boarder watched him a, little while, and then said— "What on earth are you howling for? You don't have to eat it!" A girl is put into the world, like sugar into tea, to sweeten it. Give the devli his due, but be care ful there's not much due to him. Nothing hurts a woman so much as when a man won't give her an op portunity to say "No." Popularity depends on how well you treat your friends, and how often. To many women a man is but a mark ...
One for the Butcher. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
One for the Butcher. A candidate at one of the recent by-elections was subjected to much in-., terruption by a butcher, who enjoyed considerable notoriety as a "heckler." The candidate bore the thing good bumoredly for a time, but at last lig_ gave his questioner a hint that he was taking up valuable time by ask ing silly questions. This so enraged tile butcher that he shouted out: "If I had the candidate in my sau sage machine I'd make mincemeat of lum." The candidate calmly retorted: "Is thy servant a dog that thou shouldst do this thing?" And nothing more was heard of the butcher.
Poetic Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
Poetic Justice. ^XjttUe things can be very trying at times, especially when they happen to you. Mr. Fry thought something like this when, one wet morning, he could not find his umbrella. Like most •married men, he believed in the max im, "when in trouble blame your wife." "I say, Mary," he shouted, "what on earth has happened to my new um brella? I brought it home last u!k- V and now it's gone; and, of course, it's raining like mad!" "Why, it's hardly raining at all!" said Mary. "But last night it was simply pouring when the vicar left, and so I lent him your umbrella." "What a silly thing to do! I shall never see it again now, so I may as well buy another to-day!" "How can you be so wicked, Perci val? As if the vicar would stoop to stealing your umbrella!" "Stoop to stealing it be hanged! 1 borrowed it from him a couple of months ago!"

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES Many folk seem to believe tliat ma trimonial ads. in the daily papers are either fakes or jokes. Some of them are not. ' A young gentleman, rising 60, and well worn at that, spent quite a number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous young damsel laying her rank and fortune at his feet. So he got on to a "matrimonial agent." It seems al most incredible, but this agent ac tually found a sweet young thing of 49%, and arranged a wedding between them without either having seen the other. Three days prior to the wed ding the giddy young flapper of 49 ^ awaited her selected bridegroom in a boarding house. The bridegroom dressed himself ,with car« and went along. The "agent" introduced them thus: Mr. this is Miss , your .iancee! The far from beautiful young nan took one glance at a simpering mummified face that might have been dug up in ancient Egypt, and, without a word, grabbed his hat and departed. His ad. is still appearing at intervals. —N.Z. "...

RANDOLPH'S UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
RANDOLPH'S UNIVERSITY. Cawmill Carrmichael's proposition to establiali a chair of journalism at Sydney University (writes Peter Persnurkus) recalls a tale of that ebul lient genius, Randolph Bedford. The thing happened in the days when Bed ford still belonged to daily-press work. He went to a Sydney journal looking for a job—Bucephalus offering to pull an ice-waggon. This journal had a sort of fiction that it loked for Uni versity men to write its paragraphs about the Lord Mayor and the Drum moyne drainage. It was only fiction, but it was cherished. To this august place came Randolph, to see the gen era] manager. "What can you do?" the potentate asked. "Paragraphs, stories, articles, re ports," said Randolph. "Ah!" said the employer, not ill pleased. "And can you write short hand?" The superstition of those days was that you might be Jonathan Swift and Rudyard Kipling and Hilaire Belloc rolled together, but if you couldn't write shorthand there was no place for you there. "No," said...
