And Awfully Rough, Too! [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 December 1914

And Awfully Rough, Too! A sentimental young lady from town was on the steamship quay, I where she saw a young girl sitting on a trunk in an attitude of utter dejec tion and despair. "Poor thing!" thought the romantic young lady, "she is probably alone, and a stranger! Her pale cheeks and great sad eyes tell of a broken heart and a yearning for sympathy." She went over to the traveller to win her confidence. "Crossed in love?" she asked, sym i pathetically. "No," replied the girl, with a sigh, "crossed in the Frolic, and an awfully rough passage, too!" Important Traveller (addressing guard of slow train): Is this what you call annihilating space? Guard (grinning): No, sir; this is what we call killing time.

Boolarra. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 December 1914

Boolarra. By ' The Hermit." Buried away amidst the hills in a valley of the Little Morwell River, but with beautiful flats adjacent to the town, lies Boolarra. Appr. ach ing it from Harwell, the railway runs over a lot of marshy country and beautiful flats, through which the two branches of the Morwell'and vaiious creeks flow. Perhaps in this p.esent diy season the latter verb is scarcely applicable, but there is a gcoil flow in the Little Morwell as it passes the town. One of the many surprises which somewhat staggered this experienced describer of country districts was to find that there ar& baths—actual swimming baths—on the river (we accentuate, and not use the term creek) near the town.. Nature has been good in the con tour of the place, but when Mr W. H. Penaluna, mine (genial) host of the Selectors' Arms, arrived on the scene 37 years ago, after exploring various States between leaving bis native Cornwall and literally pitch ing his tent in this now smiling valley, he...

A SINGULAR COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 December 1914

A SINGULAR COINCIDENCE. Just ibefore the opening of the Bat tle of Diamond Hill,, in the Boer War, four soldiers, complete strangers, met around an overturned keg for a hasty meal. After the meal one produced a bad florin, which was neatly cut into quarters, and a compact was made that each man should wear the memento on his watch-chain should he survive. The four, who (belonged to different regiments, then went in to action, and from that moment none heard anything of the others until quite recently, when a farewell dinner was being given to a popular man in Birmingham, who was going abroad. The four then with amaze ment recognised each other by the pieces of metal attached to their watch-guards. All knew the guest of the evening intimately!

A POET'S ROMANCE. Robert Browning was a poet who, although born more than a century ago, belongs to the bright, stirring world of modern life. In childhood he showed a predilection for weaving verses, and when but a very young man published his first poem, "Paul ine." Then he tbegan to form friend ships in the literary world. He was introduced to Miss Barrett, a poetess of no mean repute, whose verses he had long admired. She "was an inva lid, living in the greatest seclusion, "between bed and sofa," in a darken ed room. Browning fell in love with her, and made a proposal of mar riage. Her father objected on the ground of her ill-health; r 'but one morning Miss Barrett stole out of the house and returned Mrs. Robert Browning. A few days later, with the same se crecy, she left with her husband for Italy.

MITSON'S DOG. ' Mitson's shop in our place has been closed for a week or so. Mitson was perfectly willing to have it open, but circumstances rendered it necessary for him to suspend business for a while. There had been a good many bur glaries, and Mitson bought a dog to keep in liis shop at night. The man that sold the dog said that its one pe culiarity was its vigilance. So the man turned the dog loose in the shop and Mitson locked up for the night and went home. When he came down in the morning the dog flew at him as soon as he opened the door, and attempted to breakfast on Mr. Mitson's legs; there upon Mr. Mitson shut the door and sat down to think. Then he went after the man who sold the dog; but he had gone out of town to see his aunt, and wouldn't be back for a month. Mitson then un dertook to coax the dog through the crack of the door; but the animal still manifested a resolute determina tion to chew Mitson legs, and so Mit son closed the door again, and began to wish he had ...

Giving Up the Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 3 December 1914

Giving Up the Spirit. Some convivial tradesmen in a small provincial town had sat through a dry Board of Trade meeting which had extended far into the night, and remained to gossip over local affairs. Conversation often begets thirst,.and finally Sands, the grocer, remarked: "Boys, I'm dying for a drink!" It wa's past closing-time for the one and only local thirst emporium, but, armed with an idea, three of the tradesmen sallied forth to the saloon, whose proprietor lived in rooms up stairs. At the door they set up a pro digious pounding aind shouting. A tousled head was thrust through a window, hastily unflung. "Oh, Otto," the disturbers shouted, "come down quick! Sands is dy ing!" Downstairs came Otto. Once in side, the modest order for Sands' re lief was given; a quart of this, a pint of that, and a dozen bottles of the other thing, to say nothing of a demijohn of further restoratives. "By gracious!" Otto remarked "when he surveyed the final array. "I'm glad I woke up. Sands must...
