Too Good. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 April 1914

Too Good. After living in a. house for some thing under a week, a working-man took the key back to the agent the other day. "What's wrong?" demanded the agent. "Isn't the house good enough for you?" "It's too good, mister," was the re ply. "That's just it; it's too good." "What do you mean?" "Well; the wall is a-weeping for the sins of the roof, which, being jerry built, and teetotal, takes nowt but water. Every chimney's a non-smok er, and the 'ouse ain't no place for a hordinary sinner."

BRAIN EXERCISE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 April 1914

BRAIN EXERCISE. There has been serious trouble in a certain school. One o£ the teachers said he was no believer in the old hackneyed sysiera of teaching. "What is wanted," said he, "is something -which will make the chil dren think and reason ror them selves. Mere addition and subtraction are mechanical. In accordance with -his ideas, he gave his pupils one hundred questions, of which the following is a specimen: "What is it that can go up a spout down, but cannot go down a spout up?" The 'brain-fever hospitals there abouts were full of children for weeks afterwards, and the teacher was dis missed without a character, yet the answer to the riddle was very simple —"An umbrella."

All Rights Reserved. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 April 1914

All Rights Reserved. s In a court of law one day, says a well-known attorney, one of the coun sel paused in his argument, remark ing to the judge: "I observe that your honor shakes his head at that statement, i desire to reaffirm it, although your honor dissents." . "I am not aware," coldly responded ; the:judge, "that I have intimated how I shall construe the evidence,'nor : what-'my decision will he in the pre mises. Your remark is, therefore, en tirely uncalled for." "Your honor shook his head." "True," said the judge; "there was a fly on my ear. And I'll have you know, sir, that I reserve the right to remove a fly in whatever maimer pleases me." * There is only enough iron in the body of an average man to make a small nail, a German scientist states. But there is brass enough to make a large kettle.

KEEP ON KICKING! [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 23 April 1914

KEEP ON KICKING! Two frogs one day—so runs the tale— Went out to reconnoitre; Wanting something to commandeer To make their .belts feel tighter. They fell—but how I cannot tell (I did not see them do it)— Into a pail of buttermilk, And soon began to rue it. They kick'd, and kick'd, and kick'd again, "But all their strength seemed wasted. They thougnt of home, out in the fields. And all the joys they'd tasted. They slipped and climbed, they climb ed and slipped, They spluttered execration; Till one cried out, "I'll jack it up!" 'Twas his last exclamation. He lost all hope, gave up the fight, And sank 'neath milky waters; His mate kick'd on, resolved to see Agp.in his wife and daughters. He jump'd and kick'd till he could feel The milk around him .churning; And in his breast, though cold his' blood, The hope of freedom burning. The milk grew hard, the butter set; On It his feet he rested; Cliimb'd to the top. Success at last! Through pluck he'd not been 'bested! Moral. When things loo...
