EDITORIAL LIMITATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914
EDITORIAL LIMITATIONS. The belief that an editor knows nverything is widespread, but one small boy has discovered the limitations of llie editorial mind. Here is the anec dote as ire got it from a contemporary: .' Father." asked this small son of an editor, "is Jupiter inhabited?" " I don't know, my son," was the truthful answer. Presently lie was interrupted again. "Father, is there any sea serpent?" "I don't know, my son." The little fellow was manifestly cast down, but- presently rallied, and again approached the great sou-ne of infor mation. " Father, what does tht north pole look like?" But, alas! again the answer: " I don't know, mv son." \t last, in desperation, he inquivd, .h withering emphasis, "Father, 1. ' YOU. Ret to he in editor?"

MEN'S CURIOSITY TESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914
MEN'S CURIOSITY TESTED. Men are as curious as women. The .ate Duke of Westminster had on the mantelpiece of the principal guest chamber devoted to bachelors at Eaton Hall a clock below which was placed an nscrption, Please do not touch." A famous politician who was an oc cupani of the room asked his noble host, after dinner, the reason for this prohibitory request. " 1 have often contended with my wife," replied the Duke, " that w-ten .ire more curious than men. To satisfy me of the contrary fact, she has placed the clock which you refer to in the bachelor's room with the notice affixed to it. The result hns been that every man, with one notable exception, who has occupied the room has asked me for the reason of the notice." "And who, may I ask," rejoined the interested guest, " was the notable ex ception you mention?" "Mr. Fawcett, the Postmaster-Gen eral," replied the Duke: "but, then, poor man, he was blind!"

CALLING "SMITH." Miss Kate Field relates at some length ail experience which she had in trying to sleep in an hotel in a Utah mining town, whore the partitions between the rooms were of boards merely, and quit* innocent of lath and plaster. The ordin ary going and coming of the early part of tho night and the snoring of the lat er hours were bad enough, but toward morning, when at last she had fallen asleep, a loud voice shouted from her keyhole: " Smith! Smith 1" As her name was not Smith, she made no response. "SmithI" came the shout again. "It's time to get up 1" " Jly name is not Smith," she then answered. _ " What is~your name then P If it ain't Smith, it ought to be. You're down on the register as Smith."

It is hard to believe that there can be people who are absolutely alone in the world as far as relations are discover able ; yet that there are such is proved now and again by certain sums of money taken possession of by the Crown. These are the estates of people who have died leaving no will, and having 110 known next-of-kin to take their property. Several of such cases are recorded every year, and upon some occasions the amounts which revert to the Crown run into three or four figures A while ago a bookseller in a small pro vincial town died, leaving money in the bank and invested in various securities amounting to upwards of £5,000:..' He 1 never made a will, and often declared that his money should "go to the King." As is ausual in such cases, every effort was made by the Crown authorities to discover someone belonging to the de ceasedCman, and a considerable sum was expended in advertisements. All, however, was in vain, and the little for tune of the man who...
