Not Meant for Either. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914

Not Meant for Either. Many years ago. at a dinner party in Glasgow. there was present a law yer of very sharp practice fond of giving toasts or sentiments. After the cloth was removed and the bottle had gone around once or twice, the ladies withdrew to the drawing-room-all but one very plain old maid. She remained behind, and as the conversation began to get a little mas culine our friend of the "long robe" was anxious to ge- rid of the "old maid." and for this purpose rather prematurely asked thii privilege of giving a toast. This bt ing ':ralinted, he rose and gave the old toast of ""Hon est men and bonnie lasses." The toast was idru nk with honor, when the dame. whtowas sitting next the lawyer, rose frontm hr'i soat, gave end of her bony hinger, and, having said. "That toast nteither applies to you nor nm." left the room. Don't get tragic. with the very nicest men even, however mutch they love you. Secretly. !it mien loathe tragedy. Never have hysterics.

WIT OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914

WIT OF THE WEEK. Success isn't so much getting what you want as getting what other peo pile want. When a girl is as pretty as a pic picture it may be because she does her own developing. Anything that has to be whispered brings men and women nearer to. gether--naturally. There are very few words on a page after the first chapter of most real-life love stories. Many a woman who otherwise has excellent eyesight cannot see through her own husband. For most people marriage is a game of chance, but for some women spinsterhood is a dead certainty. "The happy couple had known one another for only five short weeks be fore their wedding." Think of it. And plenty of miserable couples don't know one another twenty-five long years after their wedding. A coquette is a rose from which every lover plucks a leaf-the thorns are reserved for her husband.

WHAT WE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914

WHAT WE EAT. If you are of average weight, height and appetite, and live to be seventy-five, you will have eaten fifty four tons of solid food and fifty-three tons of liquid. That is. about thir teen hundred times your own weight. If you were to stack the bread you have eaten in this nun.ber of years, the pile would equal a fair-sized build ing. The amount of butter you will have used on this bread would come to a ton and a quarter. If you are a lover of bacon, and were to stretch that which you have eaten out in single slices, four miles would be the length. Five tons of fish and 12,000 eggs would stand to your credit, while the normal cheese eater would easily have consumed 400lb. The vegetables you will have eaten would fill a train- three miles long You will have consumed some 10,01 lb. of sugar and 1,50010. of salt.

His "Mug" Betrayed Him. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914

His "Mug" Betrayed him. The fresh - complexioned young policeman from the country betrayed by his self-conscious air the disquiet ude he felt on first going on duty in a London street. He was particularly disturbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on a kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him wiith t fixed serenity of g:u:e worthy of Sam Weller himnself. Waiting until he thought he was nit noticed, the new constable apprk ached the urchin. "Now, then." began Robert. "what iare you sittin' there for all this time?" "Takiu' a dlay off in the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced "peeler," perfect ly new to the species, stared at the product of slunidom in undisguised namazement. "T'akin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see the country from 'ere?" "In your mug. o' course," replied the arab at last, swiftly vacating the kerb. a

When he finally found himself in the august presence, the great man drew out his watch and remarked in a lofty way that was in tended to be imupressive: "I can spare you just ten minutes."

And before the great man had recov, ered. the meek man had sold him a half-interest in a company whose ob ject.it was to provide chest protectors for Polar bears, and to better the con dition of Eskimos by teaching them that soap can be used for other things besides dessert.

THE UNDER DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 April 1914

THE UNDER DOG. Now here is a song of the under dog The down under dog in the fighte F'or though he is down, and he's terribly down, Maybe he's the dog th:at is right. I. isn't the cur who is largest, you know, Whose morals are always the best. And a sanctified pup with a halo, I trow, \Might succumb in a physical test. If might could be right-but it cannot you see, And I think you'll admit it were quaint If a blacksmith must always the best of men be, And a bruiser must pose as a saint. The man who succeeds may succeed as a knave, And in morals be fearfully light, And that's why your sympathy kindly I crave For the weak under dog in the fight. So here is a cheer for the poor under dog; He is not the strongest, but then,. It may hap that he's better by far than the dog That chews him again and again. His stock may be finer, his loyalty proved, And I think you will hardly demur, \Vhen I say that quite often the dog on the top Is the scurviest kind of a cur. And as the rule runs in the...
