THE ROMNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914

THE ROMNEY. By W. C. FLOOD. j "Three thousand eiglit hundred pounds!" muttered Isaac Bergenstein, ! as he leant back in his chair and gaz 1 ed at the canvas before him. "Three j thousand eight hundred, and I ought ! to have got it for three. It was that i beast!" Yorkshireman who did it— j and he knows as much about pictures ■ as a torn cat. t hought he'd never stop | L.dding. I've got it, though, after all, • and its worth every penny of Ave thousand pounds.' A Romney like that isn't picked up every day.

For, after all, did not a good picture represent money, and was it not nat ural that one's interest in it should be proportionate to the amount of solid cash that it would realise? The pic...

BISHOPS AT PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914

BISHOPS AT PLAY. Bishop Samuel Wilberforce abound ed in riddles and playful jests. Here is a question he once asked of the then Archdeacon of Oxford: "Why is an archdeacon's apron like unwhol some food?" » The good man replied, thoughtfully, that he did not know. "Because," said the bishop, "it goes against the stomach." "Who has been the greatest finan cier in the ■world?" "Noah, because he successfully float ed a limited company, whilst the rest of the world was in liquidation." "What is the first banking trans action mentioned in the history of the world?" "When Pharoah received a check at the bank of the Red Sea, which had. been crossed by Moses and company." These lines are copied from an old book:— "Written on a looking glass— I change, and so do women too; But I reflect—that women never do. "Answered by a lady— If women reflected, O scribbler! declare, What man, faithless man, would be blessed by the fair?" Archbishop Whateley once asked a friend the difference between a look...

THE BISHOP'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914

THE BISHOP'S ADVICE. A typical story of the Bishop of Rlpon, Dr. Boyd Carpenter, is told 'by the Rev. T. Selby Henvey, in "Attic Salt." It appears that -when Mr. Hen rey was in for priest's orJers the Bishop gave an afternoon's instruc tion to the candidates on the subject of preaching. His lordship gave his hearers an opportunity of asking questions, and a deacon said: — "My lord, it has been my habit dur ing my diaconate, after deciding up on a text, to open all my commentar ies on the passage to see what has been written upon it by the greatest theologians, and thus to compose my sermon. Do you recommend me to continue such a method?" To which the bishop replied:—"f must warn you that such a metuod I requires the utmost care,"or your scr r mon may resemble a patchwork quilt, or, in more Scriptural phrase, 'a coat of many colors.' Take an Illustration' from a coffee-mill. Suppose you place a number of coffee berries in the mill, they will be disintegrated units with no cohesion—so...

A WATCHMAKER'S EPITAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914

A WATCHMAKER'S EPITAPH. Lieutenant-Colonel Bennett has dis covered among some old papers the text of a curious epitaph, which reads as follows:— "Here lies in horizontal position the outside case of George Routledge, Watchmaker, whose ability in his line was an honor to his profession. In tegrity was the mainspring and pru dence the regulator of the actions of his life. Humane, generous; and lib , eral, his hands never stopped till he I relieved distress. So nicely balanced were his movements that he ijover went wrong, except when set agoing by people who did not know his key. Even then he was easily set right again. He had the art of disposing of his time so well that his. hours glided away in one continual round of plea sure and delight, till an unlucky min ute put a period to his existence. He departed this life November 14, 1802, age 57. Wound up in hopes of being taken by his Maker and of being thor oughly cleaned, reparied, and set go ing again in the world to come." . It is w...

WHEN MR. GLADSTONE WHISTLED. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914

■ WHEN MR. GLADSTONE WHISTLED. Apparently the powers of Mr. Glad stone as a siffleur were somewhat lim ited, judging 'by the amusing story told by the Rev. T. Selby Henrey in "Attic Salt" (Nisbet). Mv. Gladstone and Dean Wellesley were schoolfel lows at Eton, and the friendship there commenced continued through out life. When tliey were both in the 'sixties they met at a little dinner party at the deanery at Windsor, and the great statesman jocularly said across the table to the Dean: "I say, old friend, 1 have got ..a good story for you about Harry Phill potts, Bishop of Exeter." Upon which Mrs. Gladstone hastily interfered:—"William, you must not tell that story until the servants have left the room." When the psychological moment ar rived, the Premier said:— "You know, Wellesley, that Bishop Phillpotts, during his old age, ac quired'the habit of sitting up late at night with his chaplain. .Well one night h^was comfortably ensconced in his SLdy chair, with feet against the mantelp...

Religion and Government appear to me the two subjects which, of all others, should belong to the common talk of people who enjoy the blessings of freedom.

Once when Wood viHe was staying with hi'm a letter arrived from a bookmaker with i cheque for £1750. One" of the next letters was from a widow, telling him of the death of her husband, a fellow-engineer of the Colonel's in Chili, and asking him to assist her a little, as she was left pen niless through no fault of her hus band's, hut by sheer bad luck. "Yes," the Colonel said, "I remember, her well; a good sort, she is, and her hus band was a white man and one of the best."
