SHORTEST SERMONS ON RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
SHORTEST SERMONS ON RECORD. i ; Three words comprise the shortest sermon on record, which was preached by che Rev. Dr. William Augustus Muhlenberg, in 18f.fi, at the funeral o? Robert Bowne Jiinturn, philanthropist, and specially remembered as the foun der of St. Luke's Hospital, in New York. The text, 01 normal length, was from Micah vi. S, "What doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God?"' and the sermon was contained in the three words of seven letters in all "So did he." Another remarkable short sermon was that of the Rev. Walter Blake Kirwan, when preaching on behalf of Dublin Protestant orphans. When he entered the pulpit the Rev. Kirwan burst into tears. At length, turning towards the orphans in the gallery, he said, "My children, I cannot plead for you." And then descended the pulpit. It was found afterwards that the col lection for the charity was one of the biggest ever taken up.
A Sticker. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
A Sticker. Donald MacDougall had brought his sweetheart to the "toon" on market day. He had intended to buy her a present, but as sheep had not fetched the high prices he anticipated they would realise he considered that some cheaper form of "fairing" would have to suffice, and decided on a visit to the cinema theatre. With breathless interest they followed the doings of the heroes and heroines on the various films, when in the midst of his wonderment Donald felt a light touch on his arm. Looking around, he beheld a waitress offering him and his sweetheart tea and cake. "How much may it be?" he in quired, cautiously. "There is no charge, sir," answered the girl. In silent wonder Flora and Donald eipped their tea and munched their cake. Free! It passed the compre hension of man. After a little while Flora whispered to her knight, "We must be getting away, Donald; it's nearly six o'clock.'" But the blood of all the MacDougalls rose in revolt. "You may go if you like, my lass," replied...
Deserved the Legacy. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
j Deserved the Legacy. A Turkish story runs that, dying, a pious man bequeathed a" fortune to his son, charging him to give £100 , to the meanest man he could find and £100 to the most foolish. The most foolish man is another story. As to the meanest, accounts J agreed that a certain cadi filled the | bill. Accordingly the dutiful son ■ offered him £100. I "But I can't take your £100," said • the cadi; "I never knew your father. I There was &lt;n reason why he should leave me the money." "It's yours all right," persisted tne : mourning youth. 1 "I might take it in a fictitious transaction," said the cadi, relenting. "Suppose—I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll sell you all that snow in the courtyard for £100." i The young man agreed, willing to be quit of his trust on any terms. ; Next day he was arrested, taken be ' fore the cadi and ordered to remove I his snow at once. As this was a com I mand the young man was utterly un ! able to execute, he was fined £20 by the cadi for c...
Sold the Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
Sold the Dog. Martin owned a large dog, but his ; wife was not fond of dogs; in fact, she detested them, and the amount it 1 used to eat annoyed her all the more. 'Hang that dog!" she said, one day. "I wish you'd do something with him ; —get rid of him, or sell him. What's i the use of keeping a worthless brute like that?" j "All right; my dear," said Martin, ; "say no more about it. I'll get rid ! of him one of these days." i But Martin's wife was not to be put off in this manner. For days she kept on nagging about the dog, until Mar tin's life became unbearable, and he was obliged to do something to escape her tongue. "Well, my dear," he said one day, "I'tfe sold Joe at last." "Have you really? " I'm so glad," she said. "How much did you get for him?" j "Eight pounds," he responded. I 'That's capital!" she cried. "Where is the money, my love?" j "You see, dear," he replied, "I didn't get any money. I took two puppies ; at four pounds apiece in exchange." I
Mean Dodge. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
Mean Dodge. The inhabitants of a pretty little village in the South of England were on very good terms with themselves when it became known that a certain important personage .had decided to settle down amongst them. His name was known the world over, and the good vicar was of opinion that the celebrity would be "an acquisition to the parish." One young fellow, a prominent member of the village cricket team, didn't joiri in the general jubilation. He had heard, he said, that the big man wasn't in the habit of wasting his money. "He's a stingy old fossil," he add ed, "and we cSn do without him." "How do you know he is?" demand ed another. "It's as plain as the nose on your face," was the reply. "Where's he building his house?" "Why, on the next field-to the cricket ground." "Of course he is," was the trium phant rejoiner. "Don't you see the dodge? He can watch us play with out paying a penny at the gate. If that isn't stinginess, what is?"

Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
o By HOTSPUK. Despite the war, with all the seriousness that it has brought to Australia, the Cup car nival was wonderfully successful. An im mense crowd assembled to witness the great nee of the year, and the weather conditions were perfect. Patrobas, the winner, is now hailed as one of our best performers for many years, and the colt, by his treble win of Guineas, Derby, and Cup, has well earned his fame. The Spring meeting will be concluded to day, and the principal event—the Steeple^" i chase—should go to Coradjil or Gold Vale.
QUAINT SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
QUAINT SUPERSTITION. One of the. oldest superstitions in the Navy is that to change the name of a ship is to court disaster, and it is a curious fact that the present war has provided several illustrations of ' the ill-luck which seems to attend a ( re-named vessel. The battleship Tri umph was laids down as the Liberlad for Chile; the armored cruiser Good Hope as- the Africa, the light cruiser Pathfinder as the Fastnet, the armed merchantman Viknor as the Viking, and the patrol-boat Char as the Stranton, and torpedo-boats 10 and 12 as the Greenfly and Moth respective ly (says the "Globe"), and all these vessels have gone to the bottom. It may be remembered, by the way,, that the Victoria, sunk in collision with the Camperdown in 1893, was begun as the Renown. On the other hand, however, the four destroyers wfiicn helped Captain Fox to sink the four German destroy ers on October 17, the Loyal, Legion, Lennox and Lance, were, until early in 1914, known as the Orlando, Viola, Portia, a...

WAR NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
WAR NOTES. Persistent reports regarding the short age of food in Germany contiune to be published. It is stated that Germany is hoping for success in the Balkans in order to secure supplies through Con stantinople and Sofia. The memorial service arranged to be held in St. Paul's Cathedral, on 29th ult., in connection with the execution of Miss Edith Cavell was one of great beauty and solemnity. Itfo striving after effect was' attempted, and not even a sermon extolling the brave woman's noble sacrifice was preached, yet the simplicity of-the service and the dignity of the music thrilled the vast congrega tion. The New York " Tribune," which has shown a close study and unusual insight regarding the war situation, declares that Germany, is already beaten, and is bleed ing to death. A comparison is drawn with the condition of the Confederates in the American Cival War. It is stated that Germany's one hope lies in being able to make peace this year. If she fails in peace efforts her end ...
FORGETFUL PROFESSORS. Apologised to the Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
FORGETFUL PROFESSORS. Apologised to the Cow. The world has heard much lately about professors and their "kultur," but not much about their absence of mind. One of them lately knocked at his own door late at night and the servant looked out of the window. Not recognising his master he called out: "The professor is not at home." "No matter," said the polite scholar; "I'll call another time!" A learned professox-, glancing through the catalogue of a Parisian bookseller, saw the title of a volume he had sought thirty years. He found he had barely time to catch the Paris, express,- so he dashed to the station, arrived at the shop, and se cured the prize. "I suppose you live close at hand?" said the bookseller. "No, I have just come from Bor deaux," was the reply. The man looked so astonished that the professor glanced down at him self and discovered for the first time that he had travelled 360 miles in dressing-gown and slippers! A professor who lives down in Sur rey is fond of walking a...

CHAPTER XXX. Narrates a Startling Affair. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 November 1915
CHAPTER XXX. Narrates a Startling Affair. I lost no time, but quickly hurried around to Arlr wright road, strolling past tbe new, well-kept, red-brick house which, upon its gate, bore the words in neat white letters, "Merton Lodge." In several of the windows were lights. "What, I wondered, was the nature of the consultation going on within? While I walked to the corner of Frognal, Benham remained at the Finchley road end, within call. I watched patiently, when, about half-past eight, the front door open ed and Lola, descending the steps, left the house, walking alone in my direction. Drawing back quickly, I resolved to follow her, and, doing so, went after her straight up Arkwright-road, and up Fitzjohn's-a venue, till she came to the Hampstead Tube Station, where, in the entrance, I was as tounded to see Edward Craig await ing her. He raised his hat and. shook her hand warmly, while she, flushed with pleasure, strolled at his side up tne steep hill towards the Heath. The attitude o...

The sad event was not unexpected, as Mr Ball was known to be suffering from an internal complaint for" which there was no cure, either by surgery or medicine.

I dashed down to the platform, three steps at a time, followed by_ my three companions, but ere I gained it. the train had begun to move out of the station. . One of the Italian police officers shouted to the scarlet-capped station master to have tlie train stopped, but that stately official, his hands behind lr's back, onlv walked calmly in our direction to hear the voluble words which fell from the French officer s By that time the train had rounded the curve and was dropping from S1 ily heart sank within me.

Kokovt seva, who has suddenly leaped into fame as the "Russian Joan of Arc," found time to write to a member of her mother's family in Petrograd. This letter, vividly describing her experi ences as an officer of a Cossack regi ment which participated in the Rus sian advance into Galicia, was recent ly forwarded, via Archangel, to an other relative in New York, who translated from it portions which were printed in the San Francisco "Examin er." For bravery and distinguished ability she has recently been awarded the Cross of St. George—a decoration much coveted by Russian Army offi cers—and listed for a military pen sion.

THE FELLOW WHO'S "DOWN AND OUT." The man who wins in the fight for fame, Who wins in the war for gold, The welkin rings with his lauded name Wherever his deeds are told. Not mine to jeer when I hear him' hailed; I honor his courage stout— But what of the fellow who tried and failed, The fellow who's "down and out"? Shall naught he said for the man who tried The goal of his hopes to gain? Who faced the battle with patient pride And fought though the fight was vain?
