Made Jack Sweat. While enjoying the new-found bliss of tbe honeymoon at a seaside plea sure-resort in the North recently, a doting bridegroom hired a tandem bi cycle, and tok his bride for an after noon's roundabout run. The fair lady knew little or nothing about wheel ing. The fond husband got hie head down and plugged as hard as a gal ley-slave every inch: of the thirty-three miles, and when they got to their jour ney's end the perspiration was stream ing from every pore of his anatomy. But not so his charming wife. She stood by as cool and unconcerned as possible, and when the -poor Benedict had recovered his breath a little, judge of his feelings When she ginger ly touched one of the pedals, and sweetly inquired: "Oh, Jack, what are these little twirligigs for?" "You charge twice as much for these tomatoes as they do down the street- Why is that?" And the young housewife looked searchingly at the greengrocer with her keen grey eyes. The man faltered /an instant, and then boldly ...
DOG BINKIE. (A CHRISTMAS STORY) [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
DOG BINKIE. (A CHRISTMAS STORY) By ALICE MANNERS. Copyright. (Published by special arrangement.) Peter jogged his pony along the country lane somewhat discontented ly. Everything was so slow, includ ing the pony's trot. The Tracy children, with whom he did lessons, were laid up with meas les, and he, having already had the disease, feared there was no hope of even being an interesting invalid. Peter felt he needed some excite ment, for country life alone with Uncle Frank was getting monoton ous. The boy had been left an or phan as a baby, and for eight years Nannie (his old nurse) and Uncle Frank had been mother and father to him. Of course, he really loved his home and all the pursuits the country af forded him, but with Charlie and Rosemary's society ruthlessly cut off, nothing seemed interesting. Even Percy, the boot boy, was denied him, for Bates, the butler, had struck at last and refused to recognise that ratting was a duty for which Percy was expressly engaged. So Peter, in t...

ECONOMY IN TIME. Odd Moments Turned to Good Account. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
ECONOMY IN TIME. Odd Moments Turned to Good Account. Since economy is the chief subject of our thoughts and conversation at the present time, it is interesting to recall what men have done who econo mised in time. George Stephenson, who could nei ther read nor write at twenty, taught himself arithmetic and mensuration j while working in an engine-room dur ing the night shifts, and he studied mechanics during his spare time at home, thus preparing himself for the invention of the passenger locomotive. J Elihu Burritt, who mastered eight een ancient and modern languages and twenty-two European dialects, at tributed his first success in self improvement not to genius, but simply to the careful employment of '"odd moments" while working at his trade as a blacksmith. Sir Walter Scott, when employed as quarter-master of the Edinburgh Light Cavalry, was accidentally disabled by the kick of a horse and was confined some time to his house. He had so trained himself to find spare moments for ...

Decorations by Mr. Tootleboom Archibald Resolves to Make Hope Cottage Look"Really Christmassy. By Percy Cook Bishop. I I will myself undertake the Christ I mas decorations this year," _ Archie Tootleboom announced. "Do, darling!" agreed Amelia cor dially. Persistent , rumors had reach ed her ears that it was going to be a very dear season for holly and mistle toe, whereas Tootleboom, tjin his in nocence, thought that about nine pennyworth of assorted greenstuff would suffice to transform his hall and sitting-rooms into bowers of verdure. The local greengrocer quickly dis illusioned him. "Ah, 'olly's 'oily this year," said he, though he gave no information as to what it had been in ,previous years. "You'd think, sir, the blessed berries was made of virgin ore '-he price the 'olesalers are chargin for it. 'Course it's all along o' the war, the best 'oily comin' from Siberia and the Harctic regents, you see, and what ! with the danger from mines, and the risk of the 'oily fallin' into ...

Superfluous Information. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
Superfluous Information. While crossing a city street a far mer happened to see a sign, "Cast Iron Sinks." He looked at it a mo ment and then said, "Any fool knows that!" "My wife is going through some army manoeuvres with her last year's hat." "What d'ye mean, army man oeuvres ?" "Well, she's turning the wings ' No man can live happily who re gards himself alone, who turns everything to his own advantage. Go forth into the busy world and .love it; interest yourself in its life; min gle kindly with its joys and sorrows; try what you can do for men rather than what yon can make them do for you; and you will know what it is to have men yours, 'better than if you were their king and master.

Registered at the General Post Office, Melbourne, for transmission as a newspaper. SATURDAY, DEO. 25, 1915. Christmas Day comes this year trailing,, not clouds of glory, but the lurid vapors of war, terror, and foreboding. These j are the darkest days, perhaps, that the ' world has ever known in modern times. ; Civilization itself seems in danger of a long and ruinous eclipse through the European Armageddon. To-day is the Gethsemane of the nations. The bitter agony will pass, but whether man shall rise glorified, or sink into a lethargy of ! despair, remains to be seen. Who is there whose spirit is not daunted by the unspeakable horrors of this war ? Op timists like Maeterlinck may tell us in finished phrases that the dead do not die, that the souls of slaughtered heroes , pass into and stre...

WAKING DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
WAKING DREAMS. It is more than likely that the great majority of dreams belong to the few moments when we are falling off to sleep and the equally brief time we take t.o wake up. But what about the long and complicated dreams we dream in which all kinds of things happen, and all manner of people visit us? I Well, there is reason to think that] all these things pass through the brain like a film tragedy which ought j to take an hour to tell, being rushed off in two minutes at lightning speed. In fact, nothing is more fully estab lished than the fact that an appar ently long dream can unfold itself in an infinitesimal space of time. Alfred Maury relates how he had a long and vivid dream of the Reign of Terror in France, which included his trial before the Revolutionary Tri bunal and his execution. He actually felt the guillotine fall! Yet that dream from beginning to end was ac tually caused by the fall of a curtain rod, which struck him on the neck and woke him up. The whole lengthy ...

Ltd., Melb & Lon. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VI. Suspicion. Judging from the conduct of Hilda and Violet, it appeared to Hector that the ways of women were somewhat inconsistent. Miss Parker, as she told him when he came to the house, had fled from the sick-room to avoid meeting her miscreant lover; yet on second thoughts she had deliberate ly entered the apartment to face him. &lt; Violet had shifted her quarters to j the top of the mansion, then declared that, annoyed by the muffled sound of laughter next door, she would return if further worried to her former bed room. But without waiting for more trouble, Miss Trevor suddenly an-; nounced her intention of moving the I very next day. But, after all, Ray- I burn said to himself, women were I impulsive, and one of their gre...

WHAT PA GOT. He had played Santa Claus and made the whole household happy, and now he is looking like a husband and I father who has done his duty and ex i pects no reward for it. I The wife leaves the room for a mo | ment and returns with a hand behind ' her back to say:— | "Pa, you are one of the best men in ■ the world!" | He smiles in a modest way. "You have made every single one i of us happy." j "I'm glad of that." | "And don't you imagine that we 1 have thought of you." ! "Oh, I didn't expect anything." 1 "But you had a right to expect, and , we felt we had a duty to do. Leave ! pa out of Santa Claus? I guess not! j Shut your eyes and hold out your ; hand."

A SMALL ORDER TO SANTA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
A SMALL ORDER TO SANTA. This is all that I expect Santa Claus to bring me: One large boat—my old one's wrecked, One large, lovely Christmas tree; Then I need a larger drum, That says "boom" instead of "turn"; 'And I want a nice long whip That will make our tomcat skip; Then I hope to get a ball That will dent the hardest wall, : And a bat that will not split Ev'ry time that it is hit. Next I'd choose a pair of skates Just as nice as sister Kate's, And a bright large monoplane I That will carry ragdoll Jane; ' Then I'd like a lot of things | That are run by hidden springs— Rats and spiders and the like; And I need a ,brand new "bike" With, a coaster brake that will Make work easy down a hill. There! that's all I asked him for, Still, I'm hoping (since he's Dutch) ! That he'll bring a few things more— 1 As I have not asked for much!
"WRITE 500 LINES." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
"WRITE 500 LINES." In these days when the need for national efficienc3r is so apparent no form: of human energy can afford to be thrown away. Think of the mil lions of hours that have been spent in the past in writing "impots" at school —five hundred lines, for instance! It is all waste energy, worse even than the old domestic "impot" of learning a psalm or a masterpiece of literature, and hating it ever after. A wise schoolmaster lately drop ped all "impots" in his school and substituted a five-mile walk, out of school-hours, of course, for idleness or insubordination. So instead of Smith minor or Traddles tertius be ing told to write, or rather scribble, five hundred line of Latin verse, he is promptly fined "five miles." Aod the master sees that he does it! It would not do to sentence a boy to extra cricket or football, because he would like that, but he might be set extra drill under the eye •of the drill-sergeant. An h(Jur at Swedish when he wanted to be playing cricket with th...
REASON ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
i i REASON ENOUGH. i At a suburban dance given at the local town ball there was a man who i met with a mi&hap on the floor, due I to his lack of skill in dancing. A little later the man sought out one of the guests, and said: — I "Sir, you are the only gentleman in ! the room." I "Thanks," replied the other, dryly. ' "May I Inquire what motive has led 1 you to seek me out for this complimen | tary remark?" i "Why," exclaimed the man, "when I j tripped on the floor just now and fell ! sprawling all my length, incidentally j ripping off a large section of my I charming partner's gown, you were the j only one in the place who did not laugh." I The other smiled grimly. | "T-he explanation lies in the fact 1 that the lady is my wife and that I ) have paid for the gown.''
II. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 December 1915
II. Mrs. Chandler, who had purchased the goodwill of the small stores in the village where our heroes resided, was a widow. Her husband had been in the Army, she said, in reply to in quiries, and had lost his life in the Boer War. Before her advent Salt and Atkins had been the best of friends, and their first visit to her shop had been to gether. They found her a comely-looking person of about forty-five, very oblig ing and attentive. She had a some what remarkable profusion of tow colored hair, a fair complexion, and pleasapt blue eyes. There and then these men, who were both well over sixty, albeit hale and hearty, fell vio lently in love with her, and gradual ly, from being the best of friends, they became the bitterest enemies. Sad to relate, Mrs. Chandler, with the fickleness of a woman who cannot make up her mind, encouraged both of them, visiting Portsmouth, a dis tance of two miles, first with one and then with the other, on alternate early-closing days. Both men found her a...
