No Nice Things Now. Amsley got up to get.his pipe from the-mantelpiece the other evening, and carelessly brought his foot down on his wife's tender corn. He made no siulogy, and Mrs. Amsley said: "Well. Henry Amsley?" "Well, what?" "You haven't anything to say, have you?" "Anything to say about what?" "Al out nearly- crushing my foot to a jelly." "'What. should I say?". "I'd-ask, if I were you, Henry Ams ley! What would you have said ten years ago, before we were married, when you were courting me? What would you say to-day to any woman who did not happen to be so fortui ate as to be your wife? Hey? Why, you'd humble yourself in the dirt and apologise to her! You'd say, 'I beg your pardon' and 'How awkward I am' and 'Do excuse me!' Oh, you couldn't be humble and polite enough in your apologies! My! how you would apolo gise! You'd be apt to write her a note about it! And if it had happened after our engagement, you'd be so tenderly solicitous about my 'poor dear little foot,' my tend...
SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914
SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. If a .discovery by a German woman chemist fulfils expectations the vic tors in the battles of the future will be those armies that manage to stay awake. She has invented a narcotic powder which, on exploding produces a gas that will render lhrge bodies of troops unconscious. Those near the spot where the powder explodes will not recover consciousness for eight or ten hours. Those on the outer ring of its quarer-mile zone of action will be so dazed for an hour or so as to be practically useless. The powder will be fired from shrap nel shells which explode in the air. It is being tested by the Prussian War Ministry, and It is rumored that sev eral other Powers, including Britain, have tried to acquire the invention. Shells of this sort have been sought after by gunnery experts for years. The only other war secret of the sort in actual use is the smoke shell adopt ed last year by Japan. When a smoke shell bursts it emits a vast cloud of oily black vapor which t...

WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. One day Nasir-el-din ascended the pulpit of the mosque, and thus ad dressed the congregation: "Oh, true believers! do you know what I am going to say to you?" "No," responded the congregation. "Well, then," said he, "there is no use of my wasting my time on such an ignorant set." And so saying, he came down from the pulpit. He went to preach a second time, and asked the congregation: "Oh, true 'believers, do you know what I am going to say to you?" "We know," replied the audience.> "Then it is no use of my telling you," said Nasir-el-din, and again he descended from the pulpit. When he came next to preach, and asked his usual question, the congre gation, resolved to have a trial of his powers, answered: "Some of us know, and some of us do not know." "O!" said Nasir-el-din, "let those who know tell those who do not know, and I shall be spared the trouble o preaching," and again he came down from the pulpit.
PUSHER OR PULLER. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914
PUSHER OR PULLER. Sir Oliver Lodge claims that there iss~bo such thing as pull applied to bod les;: that is, that an engine, for in S.tance, never pulls a train, but really pushes it. A little excursion into what he means will readily convince the sceptical.that he is. right. Take this example:. The couplings of the en gI.ne. extend behind that of the car ::folloing and does actually shove it forward. -The reason it comes for :.ward:is because its parts do not se parate; that is, it has cohesion. SBut the actual force administered is that of a push and not a pull. Take a rope:pulling a safe up to a window; it is wrapped under the safe, and-that is the part that is exerting the force i and urging the safe upward, the other parts of the rope simply sticking to gether. When we pull our coats off we really push them off, for the force is exerted behind the object ii the di rection of the motion, and, as every one knows, that is called push.

CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914
CHARACTER TOLD BY-THE NOSE. --It-is an ancient belief that the.nose indicates ancestry. -We -speak about the aristocratic nose with its high bridge aind the plebeian nose. of the toiler. Certainly, in a great many cases, race can 'be distinguished by the nose. The Hebrew. could hardly be confused" withi the typical negro nose.. The highly-arched nose is sup posed to indicate tendency to rule, and the flattened nose shows servil ity. There are several classes of noses, if we are to take the word of physi ognon-ists. The Roman nose indicates executive abil'ty. Its owner is the aggressive person, the conqueror. Portraits show that the ancient war ri rs had this type of nose. The Ro mans were trained especially for deeds or valor. The modern owner of such a nose will achieve succe3s, be a leader, perhaps not in a battle for blood, but in business or profes sional life. The woman with this nse may &lt;btain social leadership if sh chooses that rather than some other line of achie...

THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 July 1914
S THE MILLENNIUM. . Whenm the last hobble skirt is , for gotten, And the last new fad has been tried: When the pannier fashion has faded. And the 'hipless" craie has died. We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it Be at peace for a season or two, Till the next freak of folly arises -To torture our souls anew. And thoise that survive:shall be happy, They shall fling away pounds of hair; They shall sit alL.day-without aching, ; At. ease . in a rocking chair; . They?ishall wear their own faces and Sfigures, They shall walk as far as they please, And be able to cross a puddle Without sprawling on hands and knees. And few of the men will praise them, And none will admire the sight; For no one will dress for fashion, And no one for man's delight: But each for her own sweet comfort, And each in her own sweet way, Shall wea:r the thing that she wishes, But the gods will weep that day.

The speaker turned to the man who Was smoking the long, expensive cigar so comfortably. "Don't you agree to that, sir?" he asked. The other flicked off his ash, with a chuckle. "Gentlemen," he said, ' am perfect ly happy now." - "What!" cried " the first speaker. "You mean to say you are perfectly happy-enrapt in the present momeint -oblivious of all the troubles of the universe? . Perfectly hap...
