Met His Match. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916

Met His Match. Dr. C. prided himself on being a man of -few words, and of a sharp, terse, decisive character. He success fully endeavoredto give the most em phatic instructions at a minimum ex pense of time and words. Therefore, his women patients often irritated him by their volubility. A lady came one day with a hand much swollen and scarred. "Burn?" queried Dr. C. sharply. "Bruise." "Poultice immediately." The patient went home without fur ther bother and returned next day. "Better?" asked the doctor brusquely "Worse." "More poultice." And the patient disappeared, but called a few days later. "Improvement?" snapped the doc tor. - "Well. Fee?" "Nothing!" exclaimed the doctor. "I've met my match in the most sen sible woman I ever met. Morning!" The trouble with many young men is that they do not learn anything thor oughly, and are apt to do the work committed to them in a careless man ner. The business world is full of such young men, content in simply putting in their time somehow...

A Birthday Monkey. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916

A Birthday Monkey. "Yes," said the old gentleman, with a chuckle; "my niece Mary means well, but she usually says the wrong thing. What's more, she's got a boy that's just like her. I sent the -boy a clock-work monkey for his birthday. Now you listen to this letter of thanks I got from him to-day. He's just eight years old: "'Deer Uncle Ned,-I am delight ed with the munkey, thank you. He makes me think of you very often. And whenever mamma winds him up and he begins to jump, mamma and I feel as if we were back at your house, and mamma says That's your Uncle Ned all over. Goodbye.-From your gratetul Hal.' "I think," said the old gentleman, as he folded up the letter, "I shall be careful what I send him for his next birthday."

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 65. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916

: -BACCHUS MARSH. By W. W uLLAMS, B.A. i hNo. 65. The Melton correspondent, July S7th, . 1877, gets quite graphic,, but alas, one reflects upon the penalties -which civilization brings with it. The noble kangaroo has been ruth . }essbl exterminated. - However, let ."?the: Melton corresponldent take the rostrum. "A day among the kan garoos at Exford," nust, be the heading of these notes; and a moie ,pnjoyable day's sport could not well be desired than that afforded on Saturday last to those who were for :-tunate enough to be able to accept of Mr. H. W. Staughton's invitation to hunt the Australian emblems in the forests of Exford. The morning broke somewhat ominous, but to wards midday the clouds lifted, and the day was all ,that could be desired foir. hunting. The company was considerable. and was composed principally of residents of the dis trict, to whom the idea of a hunt was very acceptable; indeed it was quite amusing to witness the gloomy and dejected countenances of those who...

DON'T REST YOUR LADDER ON THE CLOUDS. Wait Till You Have Something Soiled To Rear It Against. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916

dON'T REST YOUR LADDER ON THE CLO JDS. Wait TLI You Have Something So;lt To Rear It Against. If a 'young fellow were to go out into the street with a very long ladder and rest the end of it, not against the front of a substantial house or a tele. graph pole, but against a fleecy cloud sailing in ,the sky, and then begin 'to climb up-what would happen to him? Wouldn't he come tumbling to the ground'with a rush? and wouldn't all the people who were looking on laugh at his follyk in trusting his ladder tc such a support? Yet that is just what a lot of so called sensible, level-headed young fel lows are doing every day. It's good to be ambitious and to try to mount higher. But it is very foolish to try to climb up oil a ladder that is resting against the clouds. - Tom Robinson and Algernon Bloom used to sit beside each other on stools in the same office. They both wanted to be more than mere clerks. Torn wanted to be a journalist. Algernon had visions' of his masterpieces being hung in ...

WATCH LITTLE WEAKNESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916

WATCH LITTLE WEAKNESSES. One of the strangest paradoxes iq human nature is that men and women. struggling apparently with all their might to succeed, are yet constantly doing things, saying things, and think ing things which drive the very suc cess they are after away from them. They are all the time counteraoting their efforts by some indiscretion. Men work like Trojans to get a coveted position, and then, by getting puffed up with conceit, or by some foolish or weak act, knock the scaffold ing which they have been years in building out from under them, and. down they. go. Their lives are a series of successivi climbs and tumbles, so thatlthey neve .get anywhere and never accomplish, anything worth while. There are thousands of men who are working in very ordinary salaried positions who might have been employ ers themselves but for some unfortun ate weakness, some little deficiency in their natures, or some peculiarity -something which might have been remedied by a little disciplin...

A.N.A., BACCHUS MARSH.

WHY HENS FAIL TO LAY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 4 March 1916

WHY HENS FAIL TO LAY. Hens are individpals, and the dif ferent members of a flock may in no manner be alike. When it is claimed that a flock does not lay, it must be donsidered that some of the best hens to be found may be in the flock, and may be laying but as many in the flock may be non-producers, the good hens fall under condemnation simply for being in bad company. One of the mistakes made is in not culling the flock so as to retain only the profitable hens. Many persons have become disgusted with poultry as a business because they kept at an expense a lot of hens that were not worth the room they occupied, and which served only as an encumbrance to those that were producers, and this mistake is a very common one with those who buy a large number of hens with which to begin, as they are sure to receive some that are useless along with the best. Any system of feeding is expensive if the hens do not lay, and the greater the number of non-productive hens the more cost is added to ...

DE RESZKE AND THE AMATEUR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 4 March 1916

DE RESZKE AND THE AMATEUR. Jean de Reszke in his Paris school is very particular about the pupils he accepts. Of course, he has many ap plicants; to have been a pupil of De Reszke's is in, itself enough to get a singer a good engagement,. but he puts all would-be pupils through a se vere examination, at the end of which he rejects about 98 out of every 100 of them. A certain aspiring amateur- recent ly returned from Paris. He sings lit tle, and, having saved some money, he determined to enter De Reszke's school ,and make a second Caruso of himself. But now he is backs sadder, wiser, and worse off by the matter of well over twenty pounds. He went to see De Reszke, sang a song or two, and in the silence that ensued said hope fully: "And now that you have heard me sing, M. De. Reszke,. please tell me what you think my voice is best adapted to?" De Reszke quietly answered: "Whispering." The amateur understood. His voy cal career closed in stillness, ere it had actually commenced. The th...
