How Strange. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
How Strange. The other day a youth, who is rath er too fond of practical joking, sud denly accosted a prefect stranger in the street, saying: "Excuse me, sir, but did you drop a sovereign? and he held out the coin mentioned between his thumb and finger. The man whom he addressed look ed at the coin, put on an expression of surprise, and made a hurried search of his pockets. "Why, so I did," he answered, "and I hadn't missed it. Thank you," and he held out his hand. Instead of handing the coin to the man, however, the joker drew out a note book, and said: "I thought so." He then took the name and address oi the loser, dropped the coin into his own pocket and turned away. "Oh, I didn't find one," said the youth; "but it struck me that in a large city like this there must be a great deal of money lost, and upon inquiry I find you are the twenty first man who has lost a sovereign this "morning."
And P'raps He'd Think Again. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
And PVaps He'd Think Again. I'd -love to pay the income tax, I'd pay it with delight; I'd pile the stuff in precious stacks I'd eit up half the night. I'd try to be the flrBt to pay I'd he it if I could; And then I'd go my cheerful way At least, I think I would. Of course, I'd want an income big So I could pay the more; The deeper down I had to dig The richer stream I'd pour. If I had coupons piled in racks, With millions to the good, How joyously I'd pay the tax At least, I think I would.
YOU NEVER CAN TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
YOU NEVER CAN TELL. Spindrift and bilge and the world turnB over! What is the dross and what the gold? The snake and the lark ha' nests in the clover, And which is best when the tale is . told? Thrice I sinned-oh, the heavens' Joy ance! Breasts angelic shook wi' the Joke; Once did good-oh, earth's annoy-, ance! Hell to pay and the bank gone broke! James drank poison at love's deris ion; John swigged ale, and swank in the sun, Throve, and came to a dark decision, And, "Christ-that I were the other one!" Seth in the swamp and Dan on the mountain Either dreamt that he chose his times: Dan bent young to a fevered foun tain ; Seth grew old by the older slimeB. The stolen dollar in Larry's pocket Turned a bullet to Harry's side It missed by a hair his mother's loc ket: The thief lives yet and the good man died. Justice! Justice! Where is thy pal ace, Hope o' the planet's dark romance? Whose is the blood in thy broken chalice, Slave o' chance? But there is no chance! -George Sterling.
An Awkward Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
An Awkward Mistake. _ A farmer had determined, in spite of the bad times, to pay his rent if it were his last shilling, and, saying to the factor who received it: "It is my ast shilling," he threw down a roll of notes. The factor counted them and said: "There is £50 too much." "Odds, man," said the farmer, "I put my hand in the wrong pouch." "A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men." So from these lines it would appear .That those who at all nonsense sneer And curl the lip, no matter when, Are plainly not the best of men. "Opportunity may knock at every man's door," writes a disappointed wag, '.'but to me opportunity has al ways seemed more like one of those small boys who ring the doorbell and then run." Words are the coin of thought.!
MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
ter.JiAt.w. MEDICAL MEMS. ; i Coughs. Experience has shown that there are two dietinct kinds of coughs-one proceeding from an affection of the lungs and air tubes, as in a simple cold, the other proceeding from effect vescence in the stomach. The lung cough is a symptom which necessar ily requires attention, lest serious con sequences ensue. The stomach cough is a much more simple matter, and may easily be got rid of. It is caused by the effervescence of the food and drink which are put into the stomach. A knowledge of this fact ought to lead persons so affected to ponder a little on the nature of their ailment and the peculiarity of their digestive powers. Some stomachs agree best with alkalis, others with acids; one person likes a bitter substance, an other a substance which is sour. The person who deBires a satisfactory ex planation of these circumstances will consult his own physician. Many stomach coughs arise from an undue love of sweets-sweet tea, sweet drinks, sweet cake, sw...
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "I have a little story to tell you, boys," the old doctor said to the young people the other evening. "One day-a long hot day it had been, too -I met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you would take this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. Now I was a boy of twelve, not fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had been at work since daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and dress for singing school. My first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my long day's work. If I did re fuse he would go himself-he was a gentle, patient old man-but some thing stopped me-one of God's good angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' he said, 'I was going myself, but somehow I don't feel very strong to day.' He ...

BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
BUTTER FROM THE NORTH. DRY AUTUMN AFFECTS VICTORIA. Victoria, which recovered herself from the boom calamity by starting the Australian dairy industry, now re ceives butter from Queensland and New South Wales-States which but tardily followed her into this field of rural enterprise. Shiploads of Syd ney and Brisbane butter are coming into Melbourne every week. The cir cumstance is not usual. Victoria had a dry autumn and the Northern States a wet one; at the same time, butter prices keep low in London, and con sequently Melbourne agents were able to get butter down from the tyro other capitals at a price which allowed pro fitable competition with the local pro duct. The occurrence goes to show that Australia ,is rapidly becoming a self-sustaining country, as she should be. Not many yeara ago Australia was importing butter from Europe, and now she is helping to find the old world in that and many other food* stuffs. "Mie," my breddren," said the ne gro philosopher, "am mos'ly made OP...
WEDDING FETE FOR SERVANT. EMPLOYEE'S DAUGHTERS AS BRIDESMAIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
WEDDING PETE FOR SERVANT. EMPLOYEE'S DAUGHTERS BRIDESMAIDS. Not only did the members of the ! family in whose service she has been | attend the wedding of Miss Rose Kate Shepherd at Tilford, near Farnham, Surrey, recently, but her master and .mistress also arranged a wedding re ception ia the grounds of their house, while their daughters acted as brides* maids. The bride was Miss Shepherd, who j for 12 years had been employed by Mr. and Mrs. Rupert D. Anderson, of Waverley Abbey, and the bridegroom, Mr. Albert William Mark Fry, of Wey bridge. The parents of the bride and bridegroom live in the district and are in humble circumstances, and the scale of rejoicings was largely due to the interest taken in the marriage by Mr. and Mrs. Anderson and their fam ily. The bride's wedding dress was of crepon de broche, and the wreath of artificial orange blossom was one" worn by Mrs. Anderson at her own wedding 25 years ago.
WITH VILLA IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
WITH VIL^a IN MEXICO. "The army," explains John Reid, writing from Juarez, Mexico, "about 200 horsemen and 500 infantry, were drawn up in a great hollow Bquare two ranks deep, completely Burround ing that immense plaza in front of the race track. They were in all stages of attire, of course, but much more uniform than the federals at Ojouaga. About two-thirds of them had blue denim suits (overall stuff), and the rest more or less khaki. But every soldier had a different bright colored handkerchief around his neck, and a different colored serape strap ped on his saddle-all colors, vivid and faded, and mottled like leopard skins. Their faces were STRONGLY INDIAN. for the most part, very dark-there were email boys not 14 years old, I should guess, too- but their riding boots were magnificently varied, some reaching to the hip, and ornamented down the sides with buckles like sil ver dollars. They rollicked around like kids, stealing rides on street cars, making football rushes at each o...
SAYINGS OF TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
SAYINdS OP TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY. It Is not enough for a man to know a good thing when he sees it. He must seize a good thing when he luiows it.-Anon. None but the brave deserve the fair, and none but the brave can live with jome of them.-Estelle Klauder. The wild free life of the bush sounds ,very fine in Rolf Boldrewood's ro mances. It is an idyll of happiness and peace surpassing the life of the island valley of Avilion, when it is described in Ethel Turner's pleasant little twlddly-twiddly storieB. Harry Lawson, drifting somewhere in the Outback of Life, may remember bit terly how he was assailed and how he failed because he told something of the sombre truth. Not that there isn't plenty of beauty and hope in the hinterlands of Australia, but it is not all "starlit beauty and dawn dew pearled." Victor Daley, standing in a wine-cellar, heard "the axeB ringing on mountain sides." Had he humped a bluey through the ranges after the Lawson fashion he could have seen' and told the stor...
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-glycerine were brought down by rail from Derbend, a.id deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men as a e6rt of canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek named Darios, opened one of the drums for some reason best known to himnelf, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing vod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there entered a workman named Borko viteh, who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh ter The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten torian gu...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Distance lends enchantment-but not when you're taking your girl home in a taxi-cab.-"New York Tri bune." The esteemed weather clerk has sprung a new one. It ia the word "smog," and it moans smoke and fog. The clerk explains that very frequent ly there are timeB when this mixture is apparent in the atmosphere, and it considers the new word a great little Idea. Very well, "smog" let it be. But "why end there? Lot's call a mixture of snow and mud "smud." A mixture of enow and soot "snoot," and a mix ture of snow and hail "snail." Thus we might have a weather forecast "Snail to-day, turning to snoot to night; to-morrow smoggy with smud." -"Kokomo Times." 1 The Suffragettes are engaged in re vising the Bible. They'll probably want to call it Norah's ark.-"Detroit , Free Press."

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
POINTED REPLIES. It 1B very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are asked. It is said toy some to bo an "extra gift," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from-the prison or the asy lum." '.* A clumsy carver once Bent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also tho dead." / On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the. Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?"

MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 24 June 1914
MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES An Industrial experiment that is causing much controversy In the world's press just now is that of Henry Ford, an American motor car manufacturer, who is distributing 10,000,000dol. of profits among his em ployes. These prolits are distributed In weekly portions in the pay envel opes of the workers, and with the wages bring the ordinary worker over £1 per day. Detroit, where the Ford .. plant is situated, has been inundated since the announcement was made with seekers after employment where the high wages are handed out, ac cordingly the payment of double the ruling wage has had a most unsettling effect upon other employers' labor In the motor industry. Ford has highly specialised all operations in his fac tory, with the result that each man of the 15,000 employes lias some small task allotted him, which practice en able him to perform at great speed; but the argument against this sys tem is that it tends to turn the man into a mere automa...
