FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. "A Bloke" has this to say.—"A low Jferute of a working man," as B. de Vere Smythe would' say, had a bit of luck the other day. He was toiling and moiling at excavation work, when he came on a handy little pile of 18 sovereigns planted by someone in the days that never come back. "Some 'as luck and some 'asn't." For in stance, a Wooloongabba (Brisbane) carpenter was demolishing an old wooden house in that suburb, when he 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, . wan a £6000 Tatt.'s prize. Then the "low brute" launched out on his own in railway construction work. His luck held good, and he made his pile. He is no longer "a low brute," He has emigrated from the land that made him and...

THE VANISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 6 August 1914

THE VANISHED. ...... A thing on 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 so modest, and so 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 lacy, 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 plain, 'Twou...
