PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

. PRISON MASTERPIECES. j Byron's famous poem* "The Prison er of Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the,Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Eyron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress.". If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying, in prison on ac count of bis political agitation. This poem bears ■ the remarkable title of "T...

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his Opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifleB when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the trrce of life b...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out'what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling aird kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello,-there!' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the. matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the rlad, and his face softened. 'I suppose ...

ONE OF THE GREATE8T MY3TERIE8 OF HISTORY. la theyeiV 1828 there appeared in the streets of Nuremburg a youth.who could apparently not even stand se curely. "Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since bis birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write^ though, till hts dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to *say his name, "Khsper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like-a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the "darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— .Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, 'who was now about twenty-one years old,' accor...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 16 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward -and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. ; The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before....
