Her Only Request. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

Mer Only Request. The lady was complaining to the milkman of the attentuated nature of the lactic lluici with which he was in the habit of supplying her. "Well, mum," explained the milk man, "the cows, you see, don't get enough graBS feed this time of the year. Why, them cows are just as sorry about it as 1 am. I often see 'em crying'—regular cryin', mum— because they feel as how their milk don't do 'em credit, mum. "Would you believe it, mum?" "Believe it! Oh, yes. Unfortunate ly there is too much material evidence to want to dispute it," responded the customer; "but I wish, in future, you'd see the poor intelligent creatures don't drop their tears into our can."

A Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

A Warning. The dean of a certain cathedral was one day walking through the pre cincts when he came upon a laborer at work on a small plastering job. The man looked up at him, and went on with his work without touching his cap. This lack o£ due respect nettled the dean, who purposely passed the place again shortly afterwards. Again the man failed to salute, and the dean said, reprovingly: "My man, do you know who I am? I am the dean of this cathedral." The laborer glanced from the short tempered cleric to the lofty building, and replied: "Darned good job, too—mind you don't lose it."

What She Expected. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

I What She Expected. "Look at her," said the ironmonger, indicating a departing customer. "She sent her wringer here to be repaired. I promised it her for this week, pro vided that I could get a certain new part in time from the makers. I couldn't get it. Now she "wants me to pay a charwoman who came unneces sarily—half-a-crown and twopence tram fare. Then she wants me to pay the laund-y bill for the clothes." The ironmonger paused to breathe heavily. "But that's not all. Her husband dines out on wash-days, and as he dined out on wash-day which wasn't a wash-day—you understand?—she says I ought to pay for his dinner. No, she doesn't ask anything else. And they call 'er the weaker sex."

As Translated. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

As Translated. At a large warehouse there is em ployed a boy who attends to a lift in the daytime and studies literature at night. A few days ago he was given his wages with a. small fine deducted for some breach of the regulations. Quite indignant, he went to the mana ger, and began:— "Sir, if you should ever find it with in the scope of your jurisdiction to levy assessment on my wages for some trivial act alleged to have been committed by myself, I would suggest that you refrain from exercising that prerogative. The failure to do so would force me to tender my resigna tion." The manager, tottering, reached for his chair, but managed to ask -what was meant. He received the answer in less, flowery language:— "In other words, if you fine me again I'm going to chuck it."

CHAPTER XVII. A Great Invention. It was indeed hard for Geoffrey Herepath. to realise the full measure of his misfortune. But a little time heforn he had eeen bis jraj; cleartg . tlie goal of his ambition. He had all the sanguine outlook of the inventor, but he bad never been a mere dream er of dreams, had never wasted his time and intelligence on Utopian spec ulation. His was a strongly practical nature, and it was always the working value of the machine that appealed to him. Machinery! New and ingenious de vices for the saving of labor, contri vances that turned waste material in to articles of commerce! In these things he saw the way to fortune, to the employment of thousands of hands, to power in the country, to an honored name amongst men. All these prizes of life Herepath would, he felt, be able to lay at Enid Har ley's feet! So, at least it had seemed to him but a little time before. A week or two longer and he would be able to show the world how to make new rubber from old. ...

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All ^-vod, CHAPTER XVI. A Sporting Chance. Gilray thought hard as he looked at Daniel Harley. So these people were thieves, after all. Nobody hut a criminal with some shady proposi tion would have approached a man in this way. In ordinary circumstan ces, as a man of reputation, Gilray would have risen to his feet and left the house without another word. There was no occasion to tell him that Daniel Harley was going to make some dishonorable iproposal. The very attitude of the miser was eloquent of that, the furtive glance, the hoarse whisper, all were so many signs that something underhand was intended. Gilray hesitated. He knew perfect ly well that he was not to be penii.t ted to obtain this money he needed by legitimate means. People do not scatter sums of live tliousaud pounds as one scatters crumbs for the birds. Neither was such a sum as this to be gained b...

DICKENS' CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

DICKENS' CAT. | Charles Dickens was :i lover of [ animals, and like all true lovers .ie was likely to become the slave of his pets. Williamina, a little white cat, was a favorite with the entire liouse ' hold, but showed an especial devotion to its master. She selected a corner of his study for her kittens, and brought them in from the kitchen one by one. Mr. Dickens had them tak^n away again, but Williamina only brought them quietly back. Again they were removed, but the third time of their return she did not leave them in the corner. Instead, she placed them at her master's feet, and taking her stand beside them, looked implor ingly up at him. That settled the qiiesliou. Thereafter the kittens be longed to the study, and they made themselves* royally at "home, swarm ing up the curtains, playing about the writing-table, and scampering behind the bookshelves. Most of the family were given away; only one remained, entirely deaf, and known, from her devotion to Dickens, as "the master...

WHAT WAR MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

WHAT WAR MEANS. "All fair in love and war," runs the old saying, and Mr. E. A.Vizetelly, in his volume of reminiscences, "My Days of Adventure," proves the truth of it. Referring to the appearance of the railway station at Nantes during the Franco-German War, lie says:— Never since have I seen anything resembling it. A thousand panes of glass belonging to windows or roofing had been shivered to atoms. Every mirror in either waiting or refresh ment rooms had been pounded to pieces; every gilt frame broken into little bits. The clock lay about in small fragments; account books and printed forms had been torn to scraps; partitions, chairs, tables, benches, boxes, nests of drawers, had been hacked, split, broken, reduced to mere strips of wood. 'The large stoves were overturned and broken, and the marble refreshment counter—some thirty feet long, and previously one of the features of the station—now strewed the floor in particles, suggest ing gravel. It was, indeed, an amaz ing sight, t...

ATHLETIC SPORTS IN RELATION. TO HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

ATHLETIC SPORTS IN RELATION . TO HEALTH. It is strange that the problems of athletics rarely receive the attention of those who are most concerned with health, the supposed purpose of bodily exercise. The management of athletics is rarely found in the hands jf a physician, by whose scientific guidance the various sports would b<i i'rced from the dangers attending some of the present athletic practices. Athletics have *' -art to day become the i e peo ple at large. It io ...... rather than the physician, the hero-worship per rather than the hygienist, who di rects and inspires physical exercises which ought to be undertaken primar ily in the interests of a sound body and a sound mind. Games have de veloped into contests in which victory .s sought at any human price. The "manager" is the foremost adviser, and the physician is called on as a last resource to mend the damage that may have been done in an ill advisod struggle for athletic suprem acy- Until there is widespread ...

A REPORTER SURPRISED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 12 September 1914

A REPORTER SURPRISED. Au amusing incident is described by a "Cape Argus" reporter. While he was taking a walk on the mountain slopes recently he was surprised to see four uniformed policemen and a detective in plain clothes making their way up the mountain. He cau tiously followed them to a deserted farmstead in the vicinity of a tin mine on Devil's Peak. They then surrounded the building, made a con certed dash, and entered it through the doors and windows. The pressman rushed up, and through the window saw a struggle between the police and four Malays. Ou the floor lay the unconscious form of a white girl, attended by an old colored woman. The Malays ■were secured, and from a conversation which ensued, it appeared that the girl had been the victim of a dastard ly plot and forced into a marriage with one of the Malays. The pressman, believing he was on the track of a sensational scoop, burst in on the scene, and was told in strong language to "get out of the way." Then for the firs...
