It had been blamed by his landlady, who ought to know its peculiaritles, for stealing sugar from his cupboard, stamps from his blotting-pad, and even tobacco from the jar that stood upon his man telplece. He did not love that cat at anlly time, but on this particular evening, as he undressed to go to bed, he liked it less than ever. He had never given the cat any encouragement, and he did not see why it should desire to share his bed, but apparently the cat had other views, for just below the top of the blankets there was a hump that told him much. Hie was a man of quick decision. tie went over to his dressing table and lifted one of the heavy iron dumb bells with which he recovered his circulation after his cold tub in the morning. He lifted thile weapon on high and flung it with all his strength on thile ...

WISDOM FROM THE EAST. Verdict for the Defendant. At dinner the other night a famous globe-trotter, who has just returned from Persia, told some amusing stor ies he had collected while in the East. The first was about a kind-lieartod woman who was boiling eggs one day, when a starving man came to her house and 'begged for food. Taking pity on him, she gave him three of the eggs and sent him away refresh ed. In course of time the beggar be came a trader, and prospered and amlassed a great fortune; wheruenpoln a wily lawyer went to tile kind-heart ed woman and said: "Lo! see this rich merchant. We all know tlhat in thile days of his pov erty yeou fed him. See how much he owes to you, for he would have died lhad hie not eaten thlose eggs, and had hIe not eaten tlhem you might have hatched out thllree chickens, and those eggs would have ,become hunlldreds of c' ickens, and those lhulndreds of chickens sould have laid thousands of eggs, and so on and so on, till you would have been as ric...

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 30 July 1914
WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what was the duty of a king, replied, "To do good to your friends, but harm to your enemies." Hearlng this, thile philoso pher Aristo asked "Would it not be still better to make your enemies friends, and so to do good to them also?" Philip of Macedon, being advised by his friends to banish one of his slan derers, replied, "If I do he will go about and abuse me where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon Plato, gave him tile lowest seat at his table. "I daresay," he said, "when Plato goes back to Athens hlie will have plen ty to say agalnst us." "Sir," said Plato, "I hope l-.may never be so at a loss for subjects of conversation as to have to talk about you!" Aristlppus was once astkedl why he borrowed money of his friends. "No for my own benefit." he replied, "but to teach them the proper use of wealthl." Anaximander was once laughed at by some little boys for his singing. Wien told of it he sadl?...

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 30 July 1914
WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK, People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelve miles of groundl per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely dlone up at tile end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons of energy expended. Take an ordinary laborer, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on the level, does the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if hlie carries an overcoat weighing G6lb., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, the soldier is a regular pack horse, and the kit that hlie carries av erages about 601b. In weight. So that he does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break canlmp" before starting, and at the finish of thie march hlie has to pitch camp, draw water, collect fuel, clean rif...
