JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Falled. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. [ A Little Joke Which Failed. Jopkins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold o£ 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 Jopkrns as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he resolved to ' put it into practice. | So that night when he went homo . 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. .Top 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 frow...

Wasted Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914

Wafeted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket to pay his passage back to England. ITe thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that he would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go i without food that length of time. He I realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never be able to get back home. So he 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- j 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 star...

PROPER BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914

PROPER BREEDING. Men breathe better as a rule, than iromen; for the clothing of women (and especially tho corset which most of them wear) is against all free ex pansion of the lungs. Every lady's oorset. I am a ware, is quite loose, or at least that is a fiction to which we tako off our hats and vow we belicvo it; but if a properly expanding chest is to give us an increase of- say four inches at each inflation (as lungs will do), I fail to sec how any corset is going to allow of that, and still "mould tho figure." For my part I often wonder tho "new curve" is an improvement on tho old one, and whether both are guaranteed better than tho one Nature made. But this is by the way; my only point, as a voice trainer, is to insist, upon tho necessity. of adequate expansion. When this is acquired, colas ntfise t-c trouble. —H. Ernest Cunt-, iff the "Music Student."

THE PLACE FOR AN INCUBATOR. For tho working; of an incubator a mreln ad \fi(N'kv vbkqj xiiflfffliflg firm and level bearing is necessary, and a situation as free as possible from vibration and noise. For this reason a Btone floor suggests itself, and this would bo excellent could it be found in an apartment which conformed it) all other directions to tho various re quirements ; but, as a rule, it only undergoes places, such as cellars, which possess stone floors, and in many of theso the essential quality of abund ant ventilation is lacking. An apart ment within doors is preferable to an outhouse, particularly in winter, as it is so much less liable to extreme varia tions of temperature. In fact, to sum up this question, a room_ should bo selected which will be quiet (that is to say. freo from banging doors and pounding on the floor overhead), and airy without being too draughty, and which will enable the incubator to be placed so that tho sun cannot stream rul] upon it, or that it ...

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 1 May 1914

When you hear a fellow boasting Of the brave deeds he has done, Don't disturb him, let him tell you All his smart things one by one; Bht remind him when he's finished— Yes, his pardon humbly beg— That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people There are lots of them, you know— Who to promise aye are ready, I At performing very slow. In fair weather they're staunch com rades, But in foul they show the leg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. Babbling streams make far more noise , Than the stately rivers' flow. Though upon the latter, commerce Busily goes to and fro. So it is with human mortals, Workers on in silence peg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. So of boasters I would warn you, Don't believe half what they say, For the man who's aye a-blowing His own trumpet's just a jay. And experience will teach yo? Never of them favors beg; For the hen that cackles...
