HIS IDEA OF HER HAT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914

HIS IDEA OF HER HAT. Yes,' think it was straw, At any rate, it wasn't hay. There was a good bit of grass on it, though, A little rose garden flourished on the right aide, Some very fine ripe cherries grow upon the brim at the loft, And, oh, yes, of course; there was a bird to eat the cherries, The more I think of it, the more I wonder there weren't cattle to enjoy the grass.

A MASCULINE IDEA OF LEAP-YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914

A MASCULINE IDEA OF LEAP. YEAR, "If every year were Leap*year, and women could be brought to avail themselves of the timeohonored pril vilege of proposing to the men of their choice, instead of waiting for the men to propose to them, we should be far along the road toward a regenerate society." Such is the statement made by Dr, Donslow Lewis, president of the Medlco.Legal Society of America and chairman of the hygienic section of the American Medical Association. "Only in the human race is the right of selection arbitrarily given f6 the malo., Taling the divorce records of this country for the last twelve months as a guide, we can hardly be. lileve that he has made a brilliant success of It, Left to herself, and with no hampering conventions to in. terfere, the woman would be the most dirrlminating chooser."

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914

GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is printed with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency it has been the constant study of bank-notc engravers to got up some plan oi printing bills that could not be coun terfelted, In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1857, when a man named Stacy J. Edson invented a kind of green ink, which he patent. ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by. counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile ol the bills, As it is a secret known only to the American Bank Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the Ink was known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of lnt,

At the Fire Station. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 9 May 1914

At the Fire Station, He was undeniably from far beyond the suburbs, and as he was walking along a City street he stopped in front of the fire-engine house and looked in, "Have many fires in town?" he asked. "Yes, we have them pretty often," replied the fireman, "Ever try to see how quick you can hitch-up?" "Oh, yes." At that moment an alarm came in, At the first stroke of the gong the men rushed to their posts, the doors of the stalls opened, and within a few seconds men, horses, and engine were speeding down the street. The young man watched the pro. ceedings with admiration. "Well!" he exclaimed, when speech returned. "There ain't many places where they'd go to all that trouble to show a stranger what they can do,"
