FIRST FICTION KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

FIRST FICTION KNOWN. Are you aware that the "Tale of Two Brothers," written 3200 years .ISO by the Theban scribe Ennana, li brarian of the palace to Kins Jlerenp fnh, the supposed Pharaoh of the Exo dus, is the oldest work of fiction ex tant? The tale was written apparently for the entertainment of the Crown Prince, who subsequently reigned as Seti II. His name appears in two places 011 the manuscript—-probably tlio only surviving autograph signa tures of an Egyptian King. This piece of antique fiction, writ ten on nineteen sheets of papyrus in a bold hieratic hand, was purchased in Italy by Mme. d'Orbiney, who sold it in 1S57 i the authorities of the British Museum, where is is now known as the d'Orbiney papyrus. Creditors have better memories than debtors. What a busy man is compelled to neglect would keep a lazy man em ployed. When a man is Jealous o£ a woman it is because he loves her. When a woman is jealous of a man it Is be cause lier monopoly of him is threat ened.

How He Knew. Pat had just awakened from a trance. His relatives, who had been bemoaning him as dead, hurried to his bedside, and beg'an to question him aa to how he felt. "Sure, and I knew I was not dead," Pat assured them. "But how did you know you were not dead, Pat?" asked one. "Sure, and I was hungry, and my feet were cold," said Pat. "Surely you could not tell by that only, Pat," returned the questioner. "Oh, yes," explained Pat. "You see, it is like this. If I had been in heaven I would not have been hun gry, and if I had been in the other place, my feet would not have been cold."

Cause for Thankfulness. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

Cause for Thankfulness. A man entered a pawnshop and ask ed for a loan for a short time on a Newfoundland dog. After some com ment on the nature of the pledge, Mr. Isaacs reluctantly advanced the money asked for. The lender tied the animal to a stand of umbrellas, and the borrower left with the assurance that he would soon return with the money for his dcg. He had not gone far when the dog came after him, with the stock of umbellas dangling at his side. "Oh, Rebecca, what shall we do?" cried Isaacs, fearing his spouse's wrath. "I have just lent seven shil lings on a dog, and now It has run off and taken a dozen half-guinea silk umbrellas with it." "Then let us be thankful," said practical Rebecca, "the dog was not tied to the safe!"

DON'TS FOR SOLDIERS. HINTS FOR AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

DON'TS FOR SOLDIERS. HINTS FOR AUSTRALIANS. On active service the British sol dier finds himself surrounded by many pitfalls. The Australian troops who are going to the front will realise this. Discipline in the.Army is neces sarily strict in time of peace, but when the war bugles begin to blare it becomes ten times more strict, and what appear to the ordinary man as perfectly innocent actions become very grave offences against military law. For instance, one would think that a soldier suffering from the "blues" or afflicted with the "hump" would be at liberty to disseminate his' gloom among his mates; but that is not so. Should he do so he is liable to prompt court-martial and long im prisonment for creating unnecessary despondency in the ranks. "Keep smiling" must ever be the watchword of the soldier on active service. It seems a noble thing, indeed, for a soldier to rush from the ranks under fire and pick up a wounded comrade who- has fallen by the way, and in such cases the aver...

In the far corner Marniaduke Wrangley was lounging in a divan chair, smoking a cigar and playing with his glass of whisky. When near liis friend, Cyril paused io study him for a moment. It was as though lie saw the man with new eyes. In his friendship he had been blind, for the man carried about him all the signs of the adventurer about town, a type which Cyril knew full well. Wrangley's face was weak and careworn, and his whole attitude lax. The young financier grew angry. If it should prove to be his friend that had betrayed him, he would know hrw to deal with liim. He strode up It the man. "Halloa, Lnngholme, old man!" ex ?himed Wrangley, suddenly looking up as Cyril reached him. "Nothin' d-iin' to keep you goin' in the city to day?" He held out his hand. The fl&bbjr grip now disgusted Cyril. Why had he not noticed it before? It would have been a ■warning in the case of a strange...
