HE DIDN'T EAT IT! [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
S HE DIDN'T EAT IT! A man lay groaning and writhing by the wayside, when up dashed a con stable and proceeded to investigate; but all he could get out of the sufferer was, "I ate one too-I ate one too,"s and he puzzled, but not for long. "Poison!'" was his diagnosis, and, mindful of his training, he at once pro cured an emetic, which simply electri fied- the recipient. Between convulsions he managed to ask the reason for such treatment, and on hlis being told, and asked what it was he had eaten, he became more abu sive. "What did I eat?" yelled he. "Why, you idioti '1812' is the number of the oar that knooked me down!"
"HEN-TAIK." [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
-"HEN-TAIK." The "language" of monkeys has been the subject of careful study by natur alists; if the "languago" of hliens has hitherto been ncglected it is probably because no one knew they had a lan guage at.all. It has apparently been reserved far Messrs. Edward Carpen tier and George Meorrill to make the momentous discovery that hens talk, a discovery which they have oommunicat ed to an astonished world through the pages of the "Humanitarian." It appears that the hen vocabulsry, though not a very extensive one, com prises twenty-throe cries or notes-of dis tinct sound and meaning. "These twenty-three notes and cries must de note a considerable degree of intelli gence," the writers remark. "There is a good deal to show that the sure ness and precision of their instincts have, in the case of domestio fowls, been adversely. affected by their long dependence on man. Their reasoning power is also very weak, though whe thier this has been improved or deterio rated by the influence of m...

A STATE PRISON. New York State not only contains the "G.orgo Jun.or Republic," but alse a State prisoll without walls. This is at Comstock, and one has the Uanomaly of 100 Iprison cells; with the prisoners wandorilng freely about the neighborhood. Tihe secret of the "Great hleadow 1''rison" is honor, an hlonor that exists not only among thieves, but among all misdenmeanants. The wariden is popular. Ho allows the mIen to play games, and an allow ance of tobacco is made. But it is no place of id!eness. The men work at forestry and agriculture; poultry and pip are reared. A healthy life is provided, free froil thle temptations of ities. Of course, one would expect them to murder the warder and war dens and escalpe. But they don't. Can it be that our prison system is based upon false psycllhology as rwell as ,. economy -'T.P.'s Weekly.'

TINKERING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 19 June 1914
TINKERING. Jim Blinkenshoot is always busy, he never knows an idle hour; but all he does is weird and dizzy, and brings him neither wealth nor power. He starts a job with fiery ardor, and tires when it's three-quarters done; and so there's little in his lhrder, and he is always short of mon. He always has a scheme so splendid it makes all other projects wilt; "you'll see me classed, when all is end ," he tells his friends, "with Astorbilt." He has no lazy bones within him, with energy hlie's all athrob, but it' impossible to pin him down to a sane and steady job. And so his wife is doing waslhing, or beat ing carpets in the sun, while Blinken slhoot goes wildly sloshing from one fool scheme to t'other one. He sees his neighbors going sanely to do their tasks from day to day; they prosper well, while he is vainly inventing projects "bound to pay." The Blinkenshoots, in endless numbers, we see around us year by year; the cheery, futile tribe encumbers the whole blamed surfaoe of tlhis...
