A True Story. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914

A True Story. Writing from Bamawm,?Vic., Mr. William John Youill, late of-Harvey town, Eaglehawk, Vie., says: "In re gard to the statement I gave you some years ago as,to. my cure of kidney complaint, I may say that a short time since I had occasion to be medi cally examined and was entirely free from any- .complaint." Mr. Youill's original statement was as follows: "I feel it a duty I owe to you. and to suf fering humanity to send you this let ter, in the earnest hope: that others who may be, suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Di sease of the kidneys;:may -taka cour age and learn from my experience to adopt the. same method of treatment that I did; feeling sure that by so do ing they will be saved much-pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem to some a remarkable statement to make, but it can be sub stantiated by anyone who will take the trouble to inquire for themselves from me or of my'friends who were with me at the time.

DOING THE DANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914

DOING THE DANDY. A young dandy walked into the bar of a count y "public'" one day, and, re- I ceiving a respectful salutation from a "joskin" who stood near, ordered drinks for-two, ?handing a sovereign in payment, saying he had nothing less. SThe barmaid was obliged to take'the coin to hlier mistress for change, but soon returned, and asked if he would pay the next time he was passing, as they were unable to give change. A minute later, taking advantage of the girl's abstiice, the dandy nudged the laborer's arm, and said: "Look here, friend, what do you say to getting drinks.for nothing?" "Why, I'm game, of course!" "Well, then, I'll lend you the sover eign, and you order the drinks." The exchange was soou effected, and Hodge knocked louldly on the counter. '"Same dose again," he said, when the maiden appeared,and; diving deep down -into-his.trousers pocket, fished' up the sovereign. ..... "Take' th'. change out o' that," he said coolly.

Not What He Seemed. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914

Not What He Seemed. A well-known figure in the political ferment in "England is Lord Charles Beresford, who is himself, of course, an Irishman. Lord Charles is generally ready with a telling retort, a fact that at least one well-known politician remembers. This gentleman had changed political sides once or twice; and, having for the moment embraced the political faith of Lord Charles, he attended one of his lordship's meetings. Afterwards he went up to the speaker'to congratu late him. * "Capital speech that of yours, Beres ford," he said, with an air of patron age Lord Charles found it hard to bear, "very good, indeed; but, you know, you don't look like a statesman." To which he got the smashing reply: "Neither do you look like a weather cock."
