Why He Hasn't Married, [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Whv He Hasn't Married, "Why don't you marry?" asked the mincing spinster at the party. "Why dou't I marry?" repeated the confirmed bachelor, "'ore's why: Some time ago I went to a sale. Never mind what I went for, or whom I went for; I wont. Of course, there was a tremendous crush, and one had to push hard to get to a counter, and shout like fur.y to attract attention. Well, In the course of my perambula tions, I accidentally stepped on tho hem of a lady's skirt, and nearly trip per her up. She turned quickly around, and tho scowl upon her face would have made a more timid man bolt. She was evidently about to ad dress some fierce remark to me. Then a change suddenly came over her face. 'Oh, I beg your pardon,' she said, sweetly: 'I thought you were my hus band.' "

"I am glad you remembered Luke was not an apostle," be said. "Yes," replied tho wise ono, pocket ing his shilling and moving away, "and I'm glad you forgot that Mark 1 wasn't one, either."

WOOD TORN UP FOR GOLF LINKS i In that part of the London suburbs between Shirley and Keston ramblers have long known a countryside—with* out saying much about it — which might havo been primitive Hampshire or Sussex (says "The Dally News and Leader" of January 10). It has leis urely footpaths, far from the call of motor horns, which range woods where in an hours' walk one may meet none but a few natives about their woodland I affairs. But at i»renent a lot of it, instead of resembling moro secluded 'England, looks like nothing so much as a Can adian lumber camp. The saunterer who happens upon Itjcould think him self not two miles only from Croydon High-street, but among the'ploneers who are clearing the wilderness. No less than four square miles of old woodland Is being felled. A STROLL INTO CANADA Out of West Wickham Station a "Dally News" rambler found noth ing but a land containing scat tered Inns, farms, rooks, and, of course, some concentrated golfers. All...
