THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

THE UPOW1ERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame though peculiar, is likely to be last ing, for he has added to the gaiety of our nation by inventing a new form of humonr, the picturesque transportation of .initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it was not till he became an Oxford don, and blandly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering congs their tatles tike" that his peculiar genius found full recognition, and '"Spoomerisms" gave a new facet to humour. A little later he con vulsed the congregation at morning chapel by reading in the lesson of the day that, "it is easier for a camel to go through the knee of an idol,". and astonished an audience of working men by asking them if they never felt "some vague yearning, some half-warmed fish, for a higher life." The undergraduates of "New" were not slow to respond to his invitation a...

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travellia there is a desperate business. No where else surely in the world an fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an unfinished railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima; but, has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, by a murderous onslaught of mosquitoes, wasps, and bees of in credible size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs in the skin of his toes. A French traveller, who started from Guayaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descended the river, could not make up his mind which scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, those of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of the Booth Line go u...

GRAINS OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

i-~~~9RĀ·lflSlh OF GOLD. T:'I:-ihe more wit one has the rmore ori : i?:,nality one finds among men; It is little troubles that wear the heart out. It is easier to throw a : bomb shell a mile than a feather--even with artillery. Honest good humour is the oil ana wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and the laughter abundant. While many women abuse the love that is lavished upon them, the ave rage woman lives upon a kind look, a tender tone, and an occasional caress, Sand repays these with the devotion oi a lifeirnime, Enthusiasm is the glow of the soul; enthusiasm is the lever by which men are raised above the average level and enterprise, and become capable of goodness and benevolence which,, but for it, would be quite impossible, Aht? at perfection in evcrything, Sthough in most things it is unattain able; for those who aim at it, and per severe, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despon d...

One- day- he :heard that a poor young woman, whose husband 'was a clerk in the War Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to-see her, at tended her- for a month, and finally. brought, her round. At the end of this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask ,him for his account, and for time to pay it in.

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

A PUGILISTIC CABBY. Mr. Grant Alien used to tell of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leavinig .h. sC publisher's, he hired a cab to drive to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the: cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satisfied, and wanted six shillings. Grant. Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken back at the. m'an's request; however, he agreed, saying, "The very thing, my friend will hold the money and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got. down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took off' his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it reiaxed as he watched the cabman's face, ~~owing ..doubt, sur...

The Garden Sepulchre. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 December 1914

The Garden Sepulchre. (By a Banker) The conviction entertained of late years by so many, well quali. fled to judge, that the traditional sacre'd sites of Jerusalem cannot possibly be the actual spots where the great events commemorated took place, and the synchronous discovery of an ancient toinb out side the walls and in the immediate vicinity of the? Hill of Calvary, or Golgotha, which, it is believed, is the veritable Holy Sepulchre, is to many a matter of- great interest. And when the great subject is examined in the light both of the sacred writings and of contempor ary history, that conviction is more and more strengthened and intensified; and the greatest wonder is excited that the legendary and imaginary testimony should have been so generally and almost uni versally accepted, by which the traditional site was assigned as the true locality of the Sepulchre. Truly, beautiful for situation is the royal city of Jerusalem. The visitor who would wish to gather the bestidea 6f its...
