A HIDEOUS TRAFFIC. WORN-OUT ENGLISH HORSES CONVERTED INTO FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
A' HIDEOUS TRAFFIC. WORN-OUT ENGLISH HORSES CONVERTED' INTO FOOD. Mr. Philip Gibbs, writing in the "Graphic" some years ago, described the via dolorosa of worn out English horses on their way to Belgian and Dutch slaughterhouses, and he made a strong appeal to Englishmen to stop this hideous traffic, which is undoubt edly a lark stain on Britain's fame as a humane nation. Since then many other appeals have been made for mercy for the poor animals, who, after years of faithful toil on English high ways and in English fields, are sold for a few pounds, shipped off to foreign parts, in fair weather or foul, and after horrible sufferings are killed and converted into butcher's meat for hu man consumption. But it is painful to know that in spite of Government action-which followed the outburst of popular indignhation-leading to more stringent inspection of exported ani mals, the traffic still continues on a large scale, and that the horrors. of it are scarcely diminished. Mr. Gibbs now c...
SOME CRICKET RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
SOME CRICKET RECORDS. The distinction of having made the highest individual score in any first class match belongs to A.C. M'Laren, and has belonged io him since 1895, when he scored 424 runs for Lanca shire against Somerset at Taunton. During the season of 1901, C. B. Fry made no. fewer than 13 three figure scores-an achievement; never beaten, and only once equalled-name ly, by Tom Haywgrd in 1906. In that. same season, by the way, Hay ward amassed the record individual aggregate by scoring in all 3,518 runs. It was in 1906 again, that G. H'. Hirst performed the unique feat of scoring over. 2,000 runs, and taking over 200 wickets. A bowling achiev ment which is likely to take a bit of beating was accomplished by A. E. Trott in 1907 when playing in his own benefit match ,for Middlesex against Sussex. Not content with taking four wickets with consecutive balls, he then proceeded to perform the hat trick in the .saTne innings. Russia has a larger proportion of blind people than any ot...

FULL PANEL. The jurors filed into the jury box, and after all the 12 seats were filled there still remained one juror stand ing outside. "If the court :please,' said the clerk, "they have made a mistake and sent us 13 jurors instead of 12. What. do you want to do with this extra one?',' "What is your name?" asked the judge of the extra man. "Joseph .A. Braines," he replied. "Mr. Clerk," said the judge, "take this man back to the jury commission ers and tell them we don't need him, as we already have hese 12 men wi h out Braines."
HIS PROOF. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
HIS PROOF. Harry Lauder scored with a neat impromptu at a New York theatre. He had just finished his second song, and the audience was vehemen ly de manding more. Some of his Scotch admirers were calling out the names of the songs they wanted to hear. One enthusiastic young gentleman in a prominent seat was particularly in sistent. "I love a lassie; I love a lassie," he kept on shouting. The genial comedian looked him over shook -his head, and remarked grace ly-"No no, not you my son. If you did, you'd ha' fetched .her wi- you."
Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
I Melbourne Letter. Football is likely to fall into disre pute if the hooliganism tlihat has be come a regular adjunct to some of the weky games is not put down. Par tisan.sin runs higher each year, and a certain section in whom it. surges strongest are ready to allow it to carry them to any extreme. Of course, tihese form an insignificant percentage of the thousands who spend Saturday afternoops watching the play. But the respectable supporters of the game are likely to have much of their enthu slasm dispel:ed by the disgraceful scenes that have on too many occa sions this season marked the conclu sion of closely contested matches. The game is at high titlde of popularity, but it is always possible for it to lose c:ste. As was anticipated, the proposal to introduce boxing into the curriculum of the State schools has "raised Cain." Some of the mn:st scathing criticism tchat has probably ever been directed at Departmental heads, has found marks in the Chief Secretary, the 1.uMister a...
THE ULTIMATE HORROR. WAR WITH ATOMIC BOMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
THE ULTIMATE HORROR. WAR WITH ATOMIC BOMBS. The "atomio bomb" is the ultimate horror which Mr. H. 'G. Wells has' imagined. In his story, "The World Set Free" he gives :he following des cription of its effects. - And now, under the shock of the atomic bombs, ihe - great masses of population, which had gathered into the enormous , dingy town centres of that period_.were dispossessed and sca\ttbred disastrously over the sur rounding rural areas. It was as if some brutal force grown impatiept. at last at man's blindness, had with delib erate inteniion of a rearrangement of population upon more wholesome lines shaken the world. The great indus trial regions, and the large ci-ies that had escaped the bombs were, because of their complete economical collapse, in almost as tragic a plight, as those that blazed, and the countryside was disordered by a mulitude of wander ing lawless strangers. In some parts of the world famine raged, and in many regions there was plague. ... It is a remarkabl...
THE VICTIM. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
THE VICTIM. The Irishman had had a serious ac cident, ard bhad been tlus led off to the hospital to be operated upon. As he lay on the bed he beckoned to the nurse and said weakly "I'll not be operated upon by that docthor. You must find another one." "Why?" remonstrated the nurse, he is one of ihe cleverest surgeons living.' "Maybe," was the reply, "but he has an unlucky-name. I heard him say his name is Doctor Kilpa.trick and, ye see, n'y name is Patrick."

CURED. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
CURED. "This," said the guide, who was piloting a bunch of tourists through a museum, as he uointed to a mmuumy, "was a high priest, the wisest man of his day. He lived to a great age." "Was his last illness fatal?" queried the wag of the bunch (there always is one). "Of course it was," answere 1 Ii' guide, with a look of pity aL the other. "That's queer," rejoined the wo, gish one. "His appearance woul'l seem to indicate that he was perr:a nently cured."
A MATTER OF GRAMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
A MATTER OF GRlAMMER. "Look 'ere," said the publican, "you said if he didn't pay you would, so just 'and over the coin." "Wait a minute my friend," said the customer addressed. "I didn't say anything of the kind. Now just be good enough to repeat what I real ly did say." "You said 'Let 'im 'ave all 'e wants, landlord. If he refooses to pay, I will.' '' "Just so," remarked 'the customer, "If he refuses to pay, I will-refuse also, of course, I meant. Ah, I'm too old a bird to be had like that."
