The Grateful Father. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
The Grateful Father. A young man, at the risk of his life, saved a beautiful girl from drowning. Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything that makes life dear to me. Which reward will you take —fifty thousand pounds or the hand of my daughter?" "I'll take the daughter," replied the ■ heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get both the girl and the money. "You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not laid up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my (laughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."
EPIDEMIC DISEASE. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
EPIDEMIC DISEASE. ««NIP IT IN THE BUD." " It's catching"—this is what people say when a.malady spreads among "them as fire spreads m dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity, because if once you understand why " it's catching," you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it—cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, bccause disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them j the only way to prevent Disease Germs "catching" is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this.in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation has st...
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of ils founder. It is well to remember that his gen ius was great also in other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-', man—and as such ho did not fail to re alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Oriani, from Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern ments. "... I invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts. Those who wish to SO to France will be received with dis tinction b...
The Neighborly Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
The Neighborly Spirit. The neighborly spirit is an excel lent thing to cultivate, although not, perhaps, as it is cultivated in the fol lowing story: "How do you like your new home, a friend asked a man who had re cently moved into the village. "Pretty well." "Have you called on your neigh bors yet?" "I haven't yet," the newcomer ad mitted. "But I'm going to if any more of my wood and coal is miss ing." The lawyer was Scotch and the judge was English. The case in ar^i ment concerned certain water rights, and the lawyer had frequently to use the word "water," which he pro nounced very hroad. "Mr. So-and-So," at last interrupt ed the judge, "do you spell 'water' with two 't's' in your country?" I' "Na, na, my lord," quickly retort ed the lawyer; "but we spell 'man- v ners' wi' twa 'n's'!"

AMUSING INCIDENTS. ■ A 'Unique "Subscription. Dean -Hole told a capital story of John Bright. • A witty nnd persistent clergyman was urging Mr. Bright to subscribe towards rebuilding his church, and got the natural reply that, as a Quaker, Bright could hardly be expected to give for the purpose The clergyman replied that the building must be pulled down first and that perhaps lie would like to sub scribe to that part of the process. Ac cordingly, Mr. Bright subscribed £10
A Mark of Nationality. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
A Mark of Nationality. Sir David Gill, the famous astrono mer, was once emphasising the extra ordinary care and minuteness with which astronomical observations were taken. One observation, he said, was rather similar in its extreme minuteness to attempting to see the hundredth part ot the diameter of a threepenny-bit that was a mile away. "One can see that you're a Scots man," retorted one of his hearers. Nobody else would bother about the hundredth part of a threepenny-bit a mile away!"
A Poor Congregation. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
A Poor Congregation. Mr. Robert Ford, who has just pub lished a delightful book entitled "This tledown," tells an amusing story of a clergyman who stood for some time one Monday n\orning watching a man fishing for trout in a Scotch stream. "I'm a fisher, too," remarked the minister in the course of conversation, adding rather unctuously: "But a fisher of men." "Aye," was the dry retort of the angler, "I had a peep into your creel yesterday. Ye didna' seem to liae oatchcd many!"
A Wise Precaution. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
A Wise Precaution. Two seamen—an Irishman and a Scotsman—had been breaking leave and had been ordered to receive ten strokes of the "cat." They had pre viously held very good characters, and, talcing this into consideration, the captain said that if they wished to wear anything to protect their backs a little they "might do so. The Scotsman replied that he would like to have a strip of canvas on his hack, and this request was granted. "What would you like to have, Pat?" asked the captain, turning to the second seaman. "Shure, sir," was the reply, "if it's all the same to you, I'd like to have the Scotsman on my back!"
A Persuasive Tonque. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
A Persuasive Tonque. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs" (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles), anrl was esteem ed because he won the confidence of an austere spinster who kept the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of three cats. She hated the college youths, grudgingly took their cash, and stern ly denied them credit. But "Gigs" went round one day, and, while his companions were bursting vitii sub dued laughter, he blandly "talked cat" to the old lady, and succeeded in win ning her confidence to such an extent that his name—the only one—was placed on her books.

"Well, had that anything to do with your potatoes not growing?" "Yes, sorr. Bedad, them onions was that strong that my potatoes couldn't see to grow for their eyes water ing!"
What It Meant. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
What It Meant. ■ A good story is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nur sing" a Sussex constituency in view of the next election. He was earnest ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to an agricultural audience, am] was approaching the heart of the subject, when he noticed that the countrymen looked uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great deliv erance clear to their minds. He re traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelim'nary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a general movement. The elec tors bore the candidate no ill-will— (they simply filed out. He wiped his brown, and turned in despair to the chairman. "What does it mean?" he asked. "I called them to liberty, and they turn their backs on me!" "It means," said the chairman, "that they fully appreciate your prin ciples, but it is nearly ten o'cloc...
Something to Help. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 14 May 1914
Something to Help. When the Kaiser announced to Prince von Buelow that he had deci ded to appoint him Chancellor of the Empire, he was surprised to see a shadow of disappointment cross the statesman's face. - ' What's the matter?" he demanded. "Are you not satisfied?" "Pardon me, sire," replied the Prince, "I did not wish to appear un grateful, but I was thinking of my wife. I know that she detests the im mense Chancellor's palace, where we shall have to live, and she will want the whole of the interior thoroughly cleaned and redecorated. I am* afraid, therefore, that we shall have to pass the next two or three months In the midst of cleaning operations." "Don't worry about that, my dear von Buelow," replied the Kaiser. "Present my best compliments to the Princess, and tell her that I shall have much pleasure in helping her to make the task of cleaning easier for her." The new-made Chancellor thanked him, and retired, certain that the Kaiser would place, a regiment of cleaners at th...
