(To tho Editor) Dear Sir,--Statements having bee;: made to Ratepayers in the Willowgrove aiui Hill End dis tricts to the effect that I am op posed to the early construction of the Trafalgar -Willowgrove Road, with the evident intention of in fluencing ratepayers in that local ity, I take this early opportunity of refuting same, as I have always been a strong advocate of this road being proceeded with as early as practicable.

CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES. A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914

CUTTINGS WORTH, FORTUNES. A Man who Insured HJs Collection for £-3,000. The news, first made public tho other day, that a certain well-known London journalist has insured his col lection of newspaper cuttings for no less than £3,000, doubt'ess came as a surprise to many people. And, Indeed, it is somewhat dillicult for an outsider to understand how a mere jumble of snippets from old journals can he worm any such sum. Yet their ac tual talue to their owner is probably far in excess of what he has insured them for, for they are his stock in trade, the raw material, so to speak, out. of which ho manufactures the wares by the sale of which he makes his livelihood. The entire collection, the accumu lation of years, numbers some, mil lions of separate cuttings relating to practically every conceivable subject, and they are all carefully pigeon-holed ond indexed. Any trained writer, hav ing ::ueh a cutting library at his dis posal, could make a good living with out stirring beyond the four...

Financial Genius. "Sonny," began the book canvasser, "would this be a good time to see the manager?" "Got yer life Insured?" queried the ofllce boy. "Now, look here, old man," contin ued the fellow In confidential tones, "you and I must fix this little matter up. Your business Is to keep us fel lows out of the olllco, Isn't It?" "That's right." "At the same time you need a little extra coin for ba'ls ar.d parties and dinners?" "To say nuthln' of grand opera." "Of course. Now, old pal, I'!! tell you what we'll do. You get an Inter view for me with the head of the firm, and I'll hand you half a crown be fore I leave. Why, I've got a book here that he'll jump at." "No good!" replied the boy, after a few moments' thought. "But why not?" "Because a man as smnrt as you would sell our bosB so many books he'd bo broke for months, an' I'd lose five shillings a week in tips I gets from other fellows. It's your move, Algernon."

Far-Fetched. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914

Far-Fetched. Two men were drinking together when the conversation turned on how to feed and train canaries, which hap pened to be their profession. Thoy were telling each other the merits of their birds, which were to go In a show, and both were euro of winning I lie prize. At last one of them said in a sorrowful tono: "Ah, Jim, if I had only got tho ono I had last week I should not have much trouble In winning, but I had taught him to sing 'Homo, Sweet IJoine' so much to perfection that tho tears rolled down his breast till ho goc exhausted, fell off his porch, and was drowned in his own tears." "Oh," said Jim, "that's nothing. Ono night my bird was singing 'The Village Blacksmith' so true that the sparlcs Hew out of his eyes, sot flro to tlio cage and before wo had time to put the flames out the poor little wretch was roasted to death."

VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out 1)',' H.R.H. the Infanta liuialia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and eho pre sents to us in "Tlio Strand Magazine." where her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and Joal ousies which is astonishing. Somo of her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whoso ears must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courlo, the diplomat is tlio most ab surd. After remarking that they are "a useless survival of tlio days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns, and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exaspcrat lug offences," the Princess points out that nowadays the Court diplomat has 110 power, except to deliver the mes sage of his home Government. "He Is not entrusted with secrets," she says, "any more than an errand boy. And he is usually stupid. U a family of position has a son who Is not -suite br...

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914

ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. Tho enthusiasm of genius lends to strango and curious happenings at times, and the story which is told by Mr, Henry Holiday, the famous nrtiat, about his friend Uoasettl in his "Il'i miniscences" illustrates in an amusing maimer tlio later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Hossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for collcot ing china. "lie dined one evening with friends who followed his lead hi the matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for th? better display of these was pet out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precious example. When the cover was re moved, Uossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in bot'i hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclalme-.l, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!'

Not So Slow After All. At one time a Gorman unleorsity developed tlio mania for conferring honorary degrees, and a Scottish doc tor named Mclntire, who had obtained his degree by diligent labor, became disgusted. He sent a polite note to the faculty asking them to bestow a dogrne upon bis servant. The doctoi! was a great man, and the jocose na ture of tliu request was not suspect ed, so the parchment was accordingly sent him. After acknowledging its receipt, tho physician added that, sinco they were so kind as to glvo his servant a degreo, it would aild to his obligation if tlioy would confer one upon Ills fav orite borso. But tho faculty, tho joko once fairly scented, rose to the occa sion. "Wo uro obliged," they wrote, "re spectfully to decline granting so dis tinguished a favor. Wo have searched tho collcge records for n precedent, but tho only one to he .found lies In tho fact that soirto years ago a de greo was conferred upon an ass named Mclntire." Keop at It.

Scandalous Corpulence. The late American commander, General Shafter, although a man of corpulence, had a deep dislike for Cal soldiers. : "They're no use!" ho would bluster In his tremendous basso.

"I've been a fat old nui sance ever since the day I tipped the beam over two hundred pounds, and then I ought to have been court-mar tlalled and cashiered for outrageous and malicious adiposity, sir-for scan dalous corpulence to the prejudico of military dlsclplino!"

II. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 21 August 1914

II. Long monthB of reflection convinc ed Lionel Burton that he had been foolish in flinging down the gage of battle to Graydon openly. A frontal attack on a powerfully-entrenched enemy might be grandly quixotic; but it was not war. He discovered that the rules of the game were elastic, al lowing many variations in tactics, and that men judged by results only. As he digested these cynical truths, as similating them to the hard facts of life, he found that back of all his ob servations lay an inflexible desire to get even with his enemy. Jiy slow stages he had drifted to New York, where he allowed his for mer clean shaven countenance to sport an iron-grey growth of beard. Then chance, twelve months later, flung him on speaking terms with Graydon. It happened in the corridor of a fashionable hotel, where the great men merely Inquired of Burton the lo cality of the manager's office. The desired Information was given readily-almost before recognition be came definite; but the unexpected ...
