HARD ON THE JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914

HARD ON THE JUDGE. Some of the "things one would rather have left unsaid" are really inspired by kindness of heart. - In a case of slander a lady had gone into the witness-box on behalf of the plaintiff, whose counsel was examining her. Now madam," the lawyer began, "please repeat the slanderous state ments made by the defendant on this occasion just as you heard them." "Oh, they are unfit for any respect-, able person to hear," was the empha tic answer. "Then," said the examiner coaxing ly, "suppose you just whisper them to the judge."

VERY OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914

. VEKY OLD. Hero is a sample of American hu rnour which might any day be parallel ed, for the same incident might happen over and over among people born with a funny bone. Two men met in the country road, perhaps on the way to and from market. "How are you, old Ben Russell?" called one. "Come now," said the other, " I'll bet you I ain't any older'n you! Tell me what's the earliest recollection ya* can put your finger on ?" "Well," said the other, thinking for a moment intently, "the first thing I can remember is hearing people say when you went by, ' There goes old Ben Russell!'"

Prospective Mayoress. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914

Prospective Mayoress. At the Mayoral dinner Cr Bareelo jocularly hinted at the probability of the advent of a Mayoress during the current official year. What was however regarded by most of those present as one of those ghists of humor common to after dinner speeches, has the true ring of genuiness surrounding it. for we have if on the best authority that Mayor Webber is well on the road to Matrimony. The young lady is Miss Doris Edna Brown of Ascot Vale, daughter of Mr Geo Brown, late of the Loco Department. The Mayoress elect, (if we may use that term) is, like Gr Webber, enthu siastic in political affairs, being secretary of the Ascot Vale Branch PLC.. In fact, the family are all staunch Laborites, Mr Brown, senr., having been prominently identified with the Railway Union a son is Vice President of Clerks' Union, and another daughter secretary of Olaredou Branch PLC., near Lai Lai The date of the auspicious event we are unable to announce, but its approach, we aie given -to under...
