Not So Slow After All. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
I I Not So Slow After All. At one time a German university developed the mania for conferring honorary degrees, and a Scottish doc tor named Mclntire, who had obtained his degree by diligent labor, becamo disgusted. He sent a polite note to the faculty asking them to bestow a degree upon his servant. The doctof was a great man, and the jocose na ture of the request was not suspect ed, so the parchment was accordingly sent him. After acknowledging its receipt, the physician added that, since they were so kind as to give his servant a degree, it would add to his obligation if they would confer one upon his fav orite horse. But the faculty, the joke 1 once fairly scented, rose to the occa . sion. | "We are obliged," they wrote, "re j spectfully to decline granting so dis tinguished a favor. We have searched the college records for a precedent, but the only one to be found lies in the fact that some years ago a de | gree was conferred upon an ass named | Mclntire." | C | Keep at it.

PITY THE HUMORIST. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
PITY THE HUMORIST. It's not much fun to scribble rhyme? anti ladle humor out, When one is wholly at a loss foi things to write about; And when a man for years has had this sort of thing to do, It's very, very hard to And a them that's really now. So sometimes as my weary brain 1 rummage o'er and thresh In vain attempt to find a thought that's just a trifle fresh, I'm tempted sore to cease to quip, to give up joke and quirk, And grab a shovel or a pick and look for easy work.
CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES. A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
CUTTiNGS WORTH FORTUNES. A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. The news, first made public the oilier day, that a certain well-known London journalist has insured his col lection of newspaper cuttings for no less than £3,000, doubUoss came as «i surprise to many people. And, indeed, it is somewhat difficult for an outsider to understand how a mere jumble of snippets from old journals can be worth any such sum. Yet their ac tual lalue to their owner is probably far in excess of what he has insured them for, for they are his stock in trade, the raw material, so to speak, out of which he manufactures the v,nros by the sale of which he makes Ins livelihood. 'ha entire collodion, the accumu lation of years, numbers some mil lions of separate cuttings relating to practically every conceivable subject, and they are ail carefully pigeon-holed and indexed. Any trained writer, hav ing r.uch a cutting library at his dis posnlt could make a good living with out stirring beyond the four w...
Scandalous Corpulence. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
Scandalous Corpulence. The late American commander, General Shatter, although a inan of corpulence, had a deep dislike for fat soldiers. "They're no use!" he would bluster in his tremenaous basso. "They pant, they wheeze, they snort, they chokc. they grunt, they groan, they waddle, ! they slouch through the world! Not a particle of good on earth, fat soldiers Would not have one of 'em If I could help It!" "Er—but—er—you would not exact ly call yourself slight, would you. colonel?" a major once asked Shat ter after one of these outbursts. "Slight? No!" Shatter thundered In reply. "I've been a fat old nui sance ever since the day I tipped the beam over two hundred pounds, and then I ought to have been court-mar tialled and cashiered for outrageous and malicious adiposity, sir—for scan dalous corpulence to the prejudice of . military discipline!"
Clearing the Way. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
Clearing the Way. Forccps in hand, the young dentist smilingly approached his patient. "You'ro sure, you're an experienced man':' nervously inquired the victim, noticing the dentist's youth. "I'm— I'm unite a' coward, you know! Ha! ha!" "My dear sir," assured the youth, "in one minute it will all be over. So! Ah! Now then." "You-how!" roared the patient, clapping his hand to his jaw. Then he looked up to see the dentist smil ing benevolently at hiin. "There!" said the young man. "That's out! Did it hurt?" "Hurt!" roared the patient. "Hurt?" He rose reproachfully, and made an experimental tour around his gums with his tongue. A terrible discovery was the result. "Young man!" he shrieked, '"you've pulled out the wrong one." "I know," said the dentist, bracing himself again, "but now I can get at the other one handler!"
GRAVE AND GAY. Losing Time Thereabouts. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
GRAVE AND GAY. Losing Time Thereabouts. The traveller found the old farmer ! sitting on the fence chewing a wisp 1 of hay. "What do you think of the tariff?" asked the traveller. "Dunno,' drawled the old man la conically. "Ain't read about it." "Well, they put an extra tax on tea." "That don't bother me, stranger. We drink sassafras tea around tluse parts." And candy." "Gosh; we don't need any imported candy. Wild honey in the woods and sweet gum trees for the cutting." "And feathers." And thou ihe eld man resumed chewing his wisp of hay. "Don't hurt us any, partner. Lucy don't want any ostrich plumes ami birds of paradise. Home grown vols ter feathers are good enough for her. Calculate there ain't no.hing in that tariff to affect us, stranger. You are just losing time telling about it in these parts."
Financial Genius. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
Financial Genius. "Sonny," began the book canvaaner, "would tliis be a good time, tc see iho manager?" "Got yer life insured?" queried the office boy. "Now, look here, old man," contin ued the fellow in confidential tones, "you and I must fix this little matter up. Your business is to keep us fel lows out of the office, Isn't it?" "That's right." "At the same time you need a little extra coin for balls and parties and dinners?" "To say nuthln' of grand opera." "Of course. Now, old'pal, I'll t*ll you -what we'll do. You get an Inter view for me with the head of tlie firm, and I'll hand you half a crown be fore I leave. Why, I've got a book here that he'll jump at." "No good!" replied the boy, after a few moments' thought. "But why not?" "Because a man as smart as you would sell our boss so many boo!:s he'd be broke for months, an' I'd lose five shillings a week in tips I gets from other fellows. It's your move, Algernon." And the book canvasser sighed and moved on. A wit, sitting dow...

Didn't Matter to Them. A Northerner riding through the j West Virginian mountains came up j with a mountaineer leisurely driving j a herd of pigs. j "Where are you driving the pigs to?" asked the rider. "Out to pasture 'em a bit." "What for?" "To fatten 'im." "Isn't it pretty slow work to fatten 'em on grass? Up where I come from we pen them up and feed them on corn. It saves a lot of time." "Yaas; I s'pose so," drawled the mountaineer. "But what's time to a hawg anyway?"
Brain and Muscle. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
Brain and Muscle. ' 1 he manager of a factory went Into tlie store one day and saw one of the Rtoreraen tugging at a bl~; case of goods. His face was red, and the muscles on his neck were bulging OUt. "Hold on 11: ore, Jack," cried the manager, "allow me to demonstrate to you the power of brain over mus cle." He then grabbed a hook that was on a shelf and stuck it into the case, and, giving it a quick jerk, he fell backward into a pile of rubbish. He rose as gracefully as he could, saying to the storeman, "Bother it, the handle was loose!" "Yes, sir," replied Jack, "that's why X didn't use It."

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. By C. T. Capper. Artcmus Graydon, editor and owner owner of tahe "Scrutineer," swung round on his revolving-chair to greet His visitor. The latter politely ac cepted the implied invitation to be seated. , , „ Grasped in his hand, Mr. Lionel Bur ton, stockbroker and company promo ter, carried a copy of that weeks "paper," and Graydon's eyes twinkled as lie noted its deep green cover, it indicated in itselt the purpose of Mr. Burton's visit to the offices of that influential financial publication. Gray don had made his journal a power in the land. Commendation in its col umns spelt success—an adverse judg ment usually portended failure. Mr. Lionel Burton had tacitly admit ted this when a "par" in that week's number relating to himself caught his eye. It mattered little that the cri ticism levelled at his latest scheme was at the bottom unfounded. The in vesting public would not stop to t*»s criminate between himself a:ul oth ers, whom Graydon lin&lt;! run ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 22 August 1914
1 Long months of reflection convinc ed Lionel Burton that he had been foolish in flinging down the gage of battle to Graydon openly. A frontal attack on a powerfully-entrenched enemy might be grandly quixotic; but it was not war. He discovered that the rules of the game were elastic, al lowing many variations in tactics, and that men judged by results only. As he digested these cynical truths, as similating them to the hard facts of life, he found that back of all his ob servations lay an inflexible desire to get even with his enemy. By slow stages he had drifted to New York, where he allowed his for mer clean shaven countenance to sport an iron-grey growth of beard. -Then chance, twelve months later, flung him on speaking terms with Graydon. It happened in the corridor of a fashionable hotel, where the great men merely inquired of Burton the lo cality of the manager's office. The desired Information was given readily—almost before recognition be came definite; but the unexpected co...
