How She Caught Him. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
How She Caught Him. "If--now, mind, I only say 'it'--but if, dear Arethuaa, I were to ask you to give me your hand in marriage, and you were to accept, and we were ar ranging to go upon a honeymoon," said the cautious youth, still holding her hand, but with a note of anxiety in his voice. "whero would you choose to go?" Arethusa considered. She knew that on the wisdom of her reply the happl ness of two human beings would de pend. Which was the best way to catch him? "Some quiet little place li the coun try, not far away, Gerald," she replied, "would suit me far better than a long, expensive trip.". Employer (kindly): You are be coming very round-shouldered, Mr. Faithful. Bookkeeper (with hopes of a holi day): Yes, I fear that I am. Employer (solicitously): Hadn't you better stop riding a bicycle? "Pa, there isn't any difference be tween a violin or a fiddle, is there?" "Yes, indeed, my boy. The instriu ment you heard the other evening at the concert was a violin, but in the hands of...

"Well?" queried Chubbins. "No foundation whatever for the charge," replied the sergeant. "Don't believe the landlord of that inn could be guilty of such a crime." "Hi'm!" grunted Chubbtns, "that sounds all right; but if you take my tip, sergeant, you'll just put this pep permint lozenge in yer mouth before you tell it to the chief." A little boy was on his knees re cently one night, and auntie, stay ing at the house, was present. "It is a pleasure," she said to him. afterwards, "to hear you saying your prayers so well. You sp...

There are three great outstanding so0ial events in connection with a S marriage in the Fatherland. First. there is the betrothal , ceremony, which takes place at a party given by the father and mother of the lady ; then. there is the polterabend : and finally there is the hochzeitsfest-the wedding festival. Between the first and eecondl a period of between three to t'elve moRths elapses usually. The polterabend, however, is held'only a night or two before the weddingi-very often on the eve of the nmarriage. It is regarded, indeed, as part of the wedding celebration. "A NOISY EVENING."

Too Valuable to Risk. The Rev. E. F. Russell. for fifty years Father Stanton's fellow-worker at St Alban's. Holborn. tells a story which, besides being distinctly hu morous, serves to show the esteem in which Father Stanton was held 'by those to whom he ministered. Once It chanced that a clergyman officlating in a neighboring parish to that In which the church of St Al ban's is situated, was sent for to visit the little daughter of a coster living in a slum ofR Saffron Hill, who was dangerously ill.

Wouldn't Marry Her. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
Wouldn't Marry Her. Jack: Is it true, Harry, that you have given up all thoughts of making M11aud your wife? Harry: Vell, I should say so. Jack: That's strange; I thought you were so anxious to get her. Harry: So I was, but I've changed my mind in that quarter. I tried to get her to give me a kiss, and she refused, but in less than ten seconds after refusing to kiss me she kissed that pug dog of hers at least a dozen times. I tell you what it is. When a woman prefers the wet nosd of a dirty pug to the tidy mouth of a fafir ly good-looking man there is a screw loose somewhere. I congratulate myself on my narrow escape. Fred: "He married the girl I was engaged to." Arthur: "Well, don't worry. You'll get over it before he does."
DRAMATIC MEETINGS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
DRAMATIC MEETINGS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. The battlefield is probably the last place where one would expect to drop across a long-lost relative or elusive debtor. But these things have hap pened scores of times in the war which has brought men from the ends of the earth to the trenches of France and Flanders. A raiding party from one of the London regiments "were over the. top." In the darkness one of the !raiders found himself seperated from his companions in the enemy trench es. Dodging roumnd one of the tray erses, he almost ran into a tall young German poised ready to fling a bomb. At that moment a star shell went up. and in the dazzling light the two men recognised each other. With a gasp of amazement each cried out I the other's name. TO.IMY AND HIS TAILOR. They had been schoolmates from their kindergarten days until they had finally left school, about six years p nreviously ! "Confess that T have got the ad vantage !" laughed the German.

Circumstantial Evidence. A. friend of mine who owns a nice little place in the country transferred nis garden to his munition fact.ry early in the spring, and is cultivating nis own vegetables with luore or lenss succues. His son got a few days' lea?ve and spent thent at home, boing quitu con tent to journey no farther than the halmmock. Hlis larent, however, proud of his handiwork, insisted on routing him out to inspect the crops. At last they came to t!i' olatto patch, the rows of which were liantud at variouus distances from one aln uther, and showed a decided tendency to deviate from the straight line. The young manl of tihe world rc garded thelum contemplatively for a tow s?econde., and said: "Sfhoult thilnk it was jolly hot the day you put 'em in, dlad."

ADVICE TO MATILDA. Kind of Music Required Now. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
ADVICE TO MATILDA. Kind of Music Required Now. When Matilda plays the piano all the world must hush its noise, for every little jarring sound would spoil her eqluipoise. You have to hold your chatter and corrugate your brow, for tile music by .MIatilda is a classic sort of row. She will churn out a sonata a kilometro long, and rattle up an(d down the notes a-pouring out the song of some long-defunct composer witlr a complicated name, who never cut or combed his hair-such is the way to Fame. Her muslc's not melo dic: there's not a tuneful note in what she plays, but that is not the sort of stuff they wrote. The famous old composers did a powerful lot o0 biz, but their music lacks in ginger. there's no vim in it or fizz. So when I want a'cheering in these dlull and weary times, "A truce," I say, "M1atil dia,' to thoze old composers' crimes. If you really want to cheer me just sit right down and strum a bit or modern ragtime that I can sing or hum."
