A Comrade-in-Arms. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914

A Comrade-in-Arms. A certain military camp in the north west of Ireland was once the scene of a ratlier funny incident. A little hoy who was talcing a donkey to the mar lcot had occasion to pass the camp, when tho band struck up a lively air, and the ass, naturally of a nervous disposition, began to tug violently on the rope with which the boy was hold ing him. . One of tho soldiers thought he saw an opportunity to cause a laugh ai the boy's expense for the amusement of a crowd of onlookers; so he called out, as the boy passed: "Iley, youngster, why do you hold your brother so tightly?" The boy looked at the redcoat for a second, and then, as if suddenly in spired, replied: . !' "ShurSj .Vm afraid he might want to 'list in yoav regiment!"

The evidence disclosed that Matthew Campbell Leckie, an ex cise officer, visited defendant's hotel on the date stated, and took posses sion of a bottle of schnapps.

A CHINESE WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914

A CHINESE WEDDING. Ill China children are betrothed by j their parents at an early age. A child i may he betrothed as soon us it is born, hut the usual age is about ten or twelve. Several years, therefore, must elapse between the betrothal and the marriage. It sometimes hap pens that a fourteen-year-old hoy is married to a twelve-year-old girl, but this is not the rule. The average age of Chinese brides is sixteen, and that of the grooms seventeen years. When an engaged couple becomes old enough to be married their par ents first decide upon the month iu which the marriage ceremony shall be held. This depends upon the caba listic animals which governed the re spective birthdays of bride and groom. If the groom were born under the sign of the rooster and the bride un der tliat of the hare their marriage must take place in the seventh moon. If the tiger and the ape, respectively, presided at their births they must be married in the second or eighth moon, pople born under the auspices ...
