Wasted Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 30 April 1914

Watted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket1 to pay .his passage back to England. He thought the matter over, and came to thQ conclusion that he would buy. the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go without food that length of time. He realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent -he would never be able to get back home. So %e went on board the steamer and bought his ticket. He closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the dining-room, he politely de clined on the ground that he felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to eat," he said, "even if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as well be drowned as starved tc d...

I Jopkins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a. newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had. pro cured a complete paper and read the missing item. This struck Jopkins as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he reBolved to put, it into practice. - So that night when he went home from the office there ostentatiously protruded - from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw -the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jop kins had secured it and was running her eye over the bargain ads.,. and working her way, after the manner of her sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed a sud den and - suspicious frown o...
