ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914
ART CRITICISM. Comiplimentary and Otherwise. Rossetti, who was much given to procrastination, was constantly tell ing Whistler of an idea he had for a picture; but each time Whistler in quired as to the progress of the idea Rossetti would evade the issue, not having done a stroke of work in the direction indicated, and would instead begin 'to talk of his literary ventures. Finally, one day when Whistler mis chievouslyput the usual question: "And how is the picture coming on?" Rossetti, ignoring the question, said: "Jimmy, I've a neat little sonnet here I'd like to read you." Jimmy sighed and submitted. At the next meeting between the friends Rossetti told Whistler that hlie had not yet finished the picture, but that he had a frame for it Whistler inspected the frame, a fine piece of Florentine work, but said nothing. Eventually the procras tinating Rossetti actually did com plete tue picture of which he had talk ed so much, and it was in due course triumphantly exhibited for Whistle...

DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914
DOWNRIGHT HONESTY. "Downright honesty is hard to find," exclaime~l a pessimistic gentleman. A well-known literary lady replied, "I hope not. W'hen you find it where you expected to, it attracts no notice. It is a matter of course; and some times you find it when you are not looking for it. "Several years ago my husband and I were hunting for colonial landmarks in one of the oldest quarters of New York City, when we were attracted by a pretty display of lingerie and small silk goods in the window of a little haberdashery shop. We stopped to admire, and finally went in. The shop keepers were foreigners, a man and his wife. Their politeness their bro ken English, and their low prices were irresistible, and we made sever al purchases. "'We sell cheap. It pay best-an' zare be only she an' -me," the man said; and his wife echoed, 'are be only he an' me,' and went on with a path etic little story of the baby that died. 'But it be best. Zis no place for cheel dren. Some day, when we makes m...

CHINESE INGENUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914
CHINESE INGENUITY; An interesting instance of harness ing 'Nature to assist in the work of man and machinery in building a bridge is given by the Rev. J. IMcGow an in his book "Side Lights on. Chi nese Life." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difficulties to overcome: "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which measures sixty-five feet. The river is v.ery rapid, and by placing the piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river is liable to very sudden and powerful rises. This feature ne cessitated that the roadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resist the impetus of the flood without being lifted from theiir places. The great slabs are seventy feet long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two centur ies ago manage such a tremendous task? "The stone was quarried from the hills whichll rise directly from the river-b...

Settling a Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914
Settling a Dispute. "I must insist, sir," exclaimed the pompous person, "that the device is a fire-plug." "And I am equally confident that it is a water-plug," retorted the mildin- - div-idual. Now, my dear sir," puffed the pompous person, "this device' was put here primarily as a plug on which to attach a hose in case of fire in the vicinity. Therefore it is absolutely impossible that it can be anything but a fire-plug." "You are entirely wrong," declared the other. "This plug was placed here to supply water. Consequently, it is a water-plug. If it supplied fire -why, then, of course, it would be a fire-plug." The pompous person stopped a pass ing pedestrian. "Sir," he began, "I desire to appeal to your intelligence. This gentleman has become involved in an argument with me. He insists that this device is a water-plug, while I, with equal confidence, claim that it is a fire-_ plug. Will you kindly settle the ques tion for us?" "Certainly," replied the pedestrian. "You say this is a...
