FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 8 May 1914

A young gentleman, risin:,' 50, and well worn at that, spent qu'.te a number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous young damsel laying her rank and fortune at his feet. So he got on to a "matrimonial agent." It seems al most incredible, but this agent ac tually found a sweet young thing of -19and arranged a wedding between them without either having seen the other. Three days prior to the wed ding the glddv young flapper of 49!!. awaited her selected bridegroom in a boarding house. The bridegroom dressed himself with care and went along. The "agent" introduced them thus: .Mr. , this is .Miss . your fiancee!

The thing happened in the days when Bed ford still belonged to daily-press work. He went to a Sydney journal looking for a job—Bucephalus offering to pull an ice-waggon. This journal had .i sort of fiction that it ioked for Uni versity men to write its paragraphs about the Lord Mayor and the Drum moyne drainage. It was only fiction, but it was cherished.

The time for the collection came round, and, wishing to draw attention to him self, he flung his penny (as he thought) down on the plate with a crash. Immediately after so doing ho discovered, to his great dismay, ho had given half-a-crown in mistake. He at once got up and followed the old sexton, and asked to be allowed to get back his money. The old man shook his head and said—I'Na, na; I canna gie it back to ye. Ye gied -it to the Lord." The young man argued for some time, and at last gave It up and ex claimed impatiently—"Well, I suppose I'll get credit for it in heaven."

The Worm Turned. The other day Sir Gilbert Parker, M.P., referring to Lonl Rosebery's re mark that "most books in a library ought to be burned," told of a lively exchange of compliments lie once had v.'ith a publisher. Sir Gilbert had been pointing out that in many cases, owing to the In ability of literary men to look after themselves, publishers made far more money out of hooks than their authors did. The publisher remarked thai what Lord Itosebery should have said was that, "It was not most books, but most authors who should he burned." "That may he true," retorted Sir Gilbert, "but judging from the pub lishers' share of the profits of the au thors' labors, most of the authors were loo green to be hurtled!"
