PLUME CAUSES PETULANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

PLUME CAUSES PETULANCE. Women who wear hats with plumes sticking out from the sides arc fre quently annoying to male passengers on the tram caTs.and in the trains. Whenever a slave of fashion turns her head to look this way or thai, the end of her plume tickles the neck of a tall man or sticks into the eyes of a short man. If the man is very young he rather likes the sensation ; if young and married he sutlers the annoyance, because ho knows women must frivol in one way or another ; if old and crusty he will growl, and got off the tram or train as soon as possible, In a Melbourne tram on Tuesday last, an irate old man, correctly dress ed and apparently well-to-do, stood the annoyance for half a block, and then, turning to the woman sitting next to him, he said, savagely, "Stop your tickling, madam ! " The woman flashed an indignant glance at her left-hand neighbor, and then turned sharply away, the .result being that the irate old man was tickled again, and in danger of having one e...

A Double Application "Well, sir!" exclaimed the million aire. "What do you want this morn ing?" "I've come again to ask for your daughter," said the poor, but ambi tious, young man. "Haven't I told you six times over on as many different days that it is out of the question? What do you mean by bothering me in this way? You are making a nuisance of your self!" "If I seem to be more persistent than circumstances warrant, I must insist that you, sir, are to blame." "I!" shouted the indignant old man. "I don't understand you." — "There," said the man who loved his daughter, as he pointed to a motto over the banker's desk, "is my excuse for coming here day after day: '•n at first you don't succced, try, try, try again.' Do you bettovo in thr.r sentiment, or have you put it up there simply to deceive people?" After he had scratched his head awhile the mean old plutocrat tsuid: "Yes, I believe in that. 1 haven't succeeded yet in making y< u under stand that my daughter shall not...

Her Eyes Upon Him. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

Her Eyes Upon Him. A well-known writer was present re cently at a dress rehearsal of a com | edy played by amateurs. The re- j hearsal went well, but the hero, B—, seemed rather hard and cold. The novelist sat in a box next to a charm-! ing woman of middle age. She said, at the end of the third act, "It goes beautifully, doesn't it?" "Beautifully," said the gentleman. "But B doesn't make love to that pretty girl in as ardent a manner as I could wish. His love-making, in fact, strikes me as very tame and spiritless." The woman frowned. "He won't put any more spirit in it while I've got my eye on him, let me tell you," she said. "I'm Mrs. B "Pa, what is a diplomat?" A diplomat, my son, is a man who remembers a lady's birthday, but for g ts her age."
