WADDLES THE WAITER AND TOPSY TURVEY CATCH THE SUGAR-HOG [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 13 October 1917

WADDLES THE WAITER AND TOPSY TURVEY CATCH THE SUGAR-HOG 1. Sucjf a - funny-looking chap blew into Rissole's -restaurant t'other day ; but the fun niest part about; him was his boots. Phew ! 'Ah, I twig his little game,' wuffled Waddles, as he heard the sugar basin' rattle behind the i newspipei'. 'He!s pinching-. the sugar. Put ting it away wholesale !''.-'_ 2. So our whimsical waiter set his wits to work, and soon hit on a wily wheeze for catering the sugar-hog. . He introduced Topsy ' Turvey, the upside-down 'wonder, who challenged 'the customer to a staridonyour head match. . . ' 3. Of course, the sugar-hog fell into the trap properly, forgetting all about the nobbly bits he had hidden in his top-boots. 'Ha, ha ! We've caught him hands down,' chortled' Waddles, as the manager rushed up, just in time to witness the fall in sugar. 4. And sixty seconds later (Greenwich' ' very mean time) the sugar-hog had the order ? of the boot conferred upon him by the entire restaurant staff. Bif...

DASHING DOWN THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 13 October 1917

DASHING DOWN THROUGH SPACE. ?' ''Haul on it — haul for all you're worth.' He did not see Forbes reach lound to the back of ? his belt; he did not see the keen-edged Green River knife drawn from its sheath. In his ignorance he hauled hard at the rope, for no SYDNEY DASHED DOWN THROUGH ROARING SPACE LIKE A STONE. one had told him that a gasket was too frail a thing to trust one's life to. And since the gasket eeemed secure, in obedience to Forbes' com mand he threw his weight on it, leaning back, Forbes leaned over the yard and drew the keen edge of his sheath knife across the tautened line. Syd felt himself hurling backwards wildly; he clutched at 'something, but it eluded his fingers; he let out a yell that the wind snatched up and bore mockingly away; and with none to mark the manner of his passing Sydney dashed down through roaring space like a stone. 'Earned my pay, that's a sure thing,' said Forbes, re-sheathing his knife. 'He's gone, right enough. Lord'! I'll never forget that ...

"MAN OVERBOARD." [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 13 October 1917

'MAN OVERBOARD.' It was well for Syd Brunton that he had been working on the lee yard arm rather than the weather; had the latter been the case his death must simply have been a matter of seconds. He must have been flung to the deck beneath and smashed hopelessly; but as it was, he was over hanging the sea at the moment Forbes made his dastardly attempt; and as the lad hurled down wards 'the Cape- Horn gave a savage. lee roll which further simplified matters. Syd missed the hull and dashed beneath the surface of the stormy sea like a duck. , But a second afterwards he was on the sur face spitting the acrid salt out of his mouth, and ? striking- out, quite naturally, with hands and, feet. He was, as has been shown, an ex cellent swimmer, and not by any means a smooth-water man; he had tra!ned himself ta swim the river at home when it was at its wildest, and now he had the extra buoyancy of sea water, to assist him. And his next instant, once he was assured that he was not dead, was t...

RUFF AND REDDY DO HEROIC DEEDS AT WINKLESEA AND RECEIVE A HANDSOME REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 20 October 1917

RUFF AND REDDY DO HEROIC DEEDS AT WINKLESEA AND RECEIVE A HANDSOME REWARD. 1. Our two tramps were trudging along the sands, at Winklesea, Reddy with a bundle of airballs, and Ruff with the heavy weight of a grandfather's clock which he was trying to sell for old iron, when they espied old Josiah Pott, the rich retired margarine manu facturer, fast asleep. 2. Then did our two laddies put their mighty brain machinery in motion and perpetrate the following plot ; Ruff dug a hole in the sand, put the weight in it, and also a lighted piece of paper. Then Reddy suddenly jumped on his airballs, creating a tremendous explosion, while Ruff at the same time threw a heap of sand in the old chap's face. 3. Of course, the old gentleman jumped up in frenzied terror. 'A bomb !' shrieked Ruff, pointing to the weight and the smoke 'Stand away, sir !' And with that the 'brave fellow' snatched up that 'bomb,' and, rush ing down to the shore, threw it into the sea. 4. 'Never, ne-ver, have I seen a more...
