AFTER MANY YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914

AFTER MANY YEARS. The mistake of Mr. A. S. Whitehall, of Union Bridge, Maryland (U.S.A.). in going to the wrong banli, has re vealed that he is the possessor of a deposit of £200, and interest, amount ing to nearly £300. The money has long awaited a claimant. Seventeen years ago Mrs. Sarah White hall deposited £200 in a bank, and three years later she died. The bank officials made inquiries, but could never find the next of kin. A day or two ago Mr. Whitehall had business at the Farmer' and Mechan ics' Bank, but went instead to the Frederick County Bank, where it was found, that the money was his.

"BUFFALO" JONES. KNOWS WHAT ANIMALS THINK. Colonel "Buffalo" Jones, the fam ous 'American huntsman who in his time has captured lions, rhinoceroses, hippopotami, and panthers/alive and unhurt with a lasso, has gone at the head of .an expedition to the French >Congo to attempt to bring home to Europe, for the first time, a full-sized gorilla. W. Beach Thomas in Lon don "Daily Mail" writes as follows about this remarkable man: , Buffalo Jones is certainly the most astonishing conqueror of animals that has ever lived. Daniel, and Samson, as Mr. Roosevelt said, were nothing to him. I asked him the secret of some of these conquests, his scientific as well as his physical conquests, which make tame anything that Ballantyne or Mayne Reid . concocted; and at the age of seventy he is setting out with a list of new adventures that would more than fill an ordinary lifetime. The conquests are as various as notable. He has roped almost every : wild animal there is—rhinoceroses, lions, cheetah...

A maiv ried couple registering as "Mr. and Mrs." may travel in the double berths, but when they are not fully booked up; in this way the clerks assign them to two persons of the same sex. All care is taken, but despite this fact there are sometimes some amusing little contretemps'. One happened last week. A certain Major Williams was regis tered in the passenger list. The train was crowded and the clerk issued a ticket for a two-berth cabin. Later a hefty farmer from Hamilton travel ling over to ...

HOW THE SHIP CAME HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914

HOW THE SHIP CAME HOME. By ADAM M'CAY, in the Sydney, "Sun." The storm it howled with a demon's breath, And its hate was the hate of Hell; But the Wakatipu came back from death, And she brought back life, as well. Southward into the raving Mast, sea ward into the night The Wakatipu went rolling past in the devil's own despite; • For all the demons that twist and turn wherever the tempests blow Had sworn to batter her, stem to stern and drag her to drown below; She dug her nose in the sweeping seas, she put her head to the gale, For 'tis just as luck and the Lord shall please if a ship will win or fail; And the devils smote her in scornful sport, but she battled against them all; - For .the mascot bringing her back to port was a baby born with a caul. Beaten and banged, she staggered on; reeled with a drunkard's gait; Her rudder and half of her boats were gone; she heaved her plunging weight Like the wallowing corpse of a har pooned whale; was tipped and turned and tossed Till the de...

Just Right. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914

. Just Right. Last year a certain Lancashire far mer vbought two barrels of beer. One of the .barrels turned out to he sour. The farmer said he would send it back, but his wife, kind woman, sug gested it would do for the men in the hay-field, and it was sent into the field. . The next day the farmer went to the men, and said to the foreman: "What kind of beer was that I sent you?" "Well," answered the man, "it was ju;t right." "What do you mean?" said the far mer. , "Well, if it had 'been any worse we couldn't have supped it, and if it had been any better we shouldn't have got it." ■

It was, as follows " I regret you take an entirely wrong view of matters touched upon in this as well as in a previous letter on the same sub ject. It would be now far better for me to be silent than to offer advice, when I know nothing, of the subject referred to. I am the last person that would hazard an opinion when in darkness.
