FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 July 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. "A Bioko" has this to say.—"A low bruto of a working man," as B. de Voro Smytho would say, had a bit of luck tlio other day. He was tolling and moiling at excavation work, wlion he camo on a liandy little pile of 18 sovereigns planted by someone In the days that never come back. "Some 'as luck and some "aBn't." For In stance, a Wooloongabba (Brisbane) carpenter was demolishing an old wooden Iioubo In that suburb, when hu came upon a find of 27 spade guineas, probably planted there when Moreton Bay was a convict settle ment. As spade'guineas go, they are Worth more than the ordinary twenty one shillings, and the lucky finder got a bit over when he realised on them. Then the "low brute" took a ticket in Tatt.'s, and, his luck still holding, won a £5000 Tatt.'a prize. Then the "low bruto" launched out on his own In railway construction work. His luck held good, and he made his pile, lie is no longer "a low brute." He has emigrated from the land that made him and r...

THE VANISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 July 1914

THE VANISHED. A thing oil which I used to dote Was lovely woman's petticoat. Of all the duds she ever wore (And heaven knows they've been galore), None was so dainty, and so natty. None was so feminine, so pretty. None Seemed bo modeBt, and bo neat Above a pair of pretty feet, None had the charm o'er which I gloat Like the old-fashioned petticoat. I loved to see her lift her gown When crossing puddles in the town. I loved to see her • petticoat— Its lauy, fluttering frills afloat Blow round and round her ankles small. In graceful eddies rise and fall, As if to say, "I am too gay, Too lovely far to hide away." Sometimes 'twas petticoat of silk Or shimmering satin, or that ilk, And as before the cosy grate We two were wont to meditate, The flame burned high, with maiden thrift Her pretty evening gown she'd lift And bring to my enchanted view Her petticoat of rosy hue. Or if to work she was inclined, Her petticoat bespoke her mind., Of gingham, simple, strong, and plp.ln, 'Twould wash ...

ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND THE MARBLES. An elderly gentleman, now residing in Washington, tells this story about Abraham Lincoln. "I wag about ten years of age and given violently to the game of mar bles. One cold March day my com panions and I were playing on the sidewalk before my father's shop when I slipped on a piece of ice and fell, cuting my chin. The other boys seized as many of my marbles as they could and made off. Wild with anger, I started after them, calling tliem names and threatening to anni hilate them, and so on. Suddenly a hand on my collar stopped me and a deep voice said— •" 'We've got enough Ill-feeling go ing on in this country these days with out you boys catching it!" "A big man swung me around and wiped my wounded chin, and then went on— " 'I saw what they did, my son. Have you any agates left? Good! I'll put up three chlny-alleys, and we'll see who'll win.' "He drew from his pocket three marbles. " 'I got them from my boy Tad," he explained, and then I knew who he...

TRIVIAL CAUSE OF A DUEL. One morning a Prussian officer came to an inn. and ordered a pickled herring, which was soon brought to him in a caper sauce. Not far from him sat an Australian officer who spoke to the Prussian thus: "That is something gpod, Isn't it; I have seen it grow myself in Italy." "You appear to be in a merry hu mor," replied the Prussian. "I must request you, however, not to talk Buch nonsense." "There is no nonsense about it; I am perfectly serious," was the reply. After arguing together in this strain for about ten minutes, the Prussian said angrily, "I am tired of being hum bugged with such 'nonsense," and growing very excited, he shouted, "Come to-morrow morning at nine; o'clock in the wood near by, with a second, and I will givo you an answer with a bullet." "Right you are," said the Austrian, drinking up his wine. The next morning the two met, to gether with their friends, in the wood at the appointed ime.

The Federal Fight. PRIME MINISTER AT PARRAMATTA. [Contributed.] [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 July 1914

The Federal Fight. Prime Minister at Parramatta. [Contributed.] The Prime Minister's policy speech nt Parramatta is . a somewhat cruel blow to those Lubrrites who have de lighted to sncor nt Liberals as "Con servatives in disguise". What is vastly more important, the speech must open the eyes of those neutral folk whose mood the cheap sneers in fluenced. The Liberal Party now stands boldy forward as the champion of n just electoral system, under which the electors may return whom they choose. Mr Cook put the preferential vote for Representatives, and election of Sen ators on the proportionate vote in the forefront of his fighting platform. It in a bold, forward move, and should be a winning one. How can the Opposi tion defend its attitude? Long ago it admitted the theoretical superiority of the preferential and proportionate votes ; nor can it plead that, though admirable in the abstract, electoral re form is impracticable under existing conditions, for it uses the preferential vote...
