Knew by the Voice. "Speaking of the liumau voice," said the disagreeable man, "have you : ever thought what au indication ol character it is? Place a woman I have never seen in another room, and let me but hear the tones o£ her voice, and I can tell what kind of a woman she. is." "You are -entirely right about that," replied Von Blumer, "and I re cently had this" very thing manifested to a remarkable degree. A woman called oil my wife the other day, and although I had never seen her be fore, I knew by hearing her speak just what she was." "What sort of a woman was she?" inquired the disagreeable man, with intense eagerness. "Why," .replied Von Blumer, com placently, "she was Scotch." Juby liad conceived a grudge against O'Connor and sought lor a way to pay him out. "I say, O'Connor," he said, "you re member vou told me you had hunted tigers in "West Africa?

TRIAL BY ORDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

TRIAL BY ORDEAL. The remarkable suggestion o£ the counsel tor the defence in the recent Wheeldon conspiracy case, that the prisoners should be tried by ordeal, lakes us back a long way, for such trials ceased in this country about the. middle of the thirteenth century, and on the Continent they were, with one or two exceptions, abolish ed even earlier. Trial by ordeal, indeed, goes back to earliest days, and in the Book of Numbers there is a case recorded of a Hebrew woman having been re quired to submit to a test. Among the Hindus the ordeal lias been prac tised by fire, by water, by poison or drinking water in which deities had* been washed, by chewing rice, by hot oil, by rod-hot iron, awl by drawing lwo images out of a jar. Living stone described the practice as be ing common among all negro races north of the Zambesi, the natives ? having the greatest faith in its effi cacy. And it has not always failed, for the trepidation of the criminal before the dreaded ordeal has fre quen...

Nursery Rhyme Sermons "JACK SPRAT." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

Nursery Rhyme Sermons "JACK SPRAT." You will find my text, brethren, in the Boole of Nursery Rhymes, oppo site a sweetly idyllic picture repre senting Jack Sprat at one side of the dinner-table, his wife at the other, a smile upon their rubicund counten ances,. the last morsel upon their forks, and the empty platter between. That picture, brethren, depicts all the philosophy of matrimony. AVe are not told that Jack Sprat could, and did, eat lean; that his wife could, and did, eat fat; No, brethren. We are simply told that the one "could eat no fat," the other "could eat no lean." Were my text to stop here we might hastily conclude that the couple were either vegetarians or fruitarians, and that they lived on nuts, bananas, and watercress. But, brethren, my text does not stop -here. Jack Sprat was no Hun, his wife no fat Frau. They were both true-born Britons; the platter, to be gin with, was well laden, to end with, "clean." The one who could eat no fat ate all the lean, the one who...

The Spirit of Patriotism [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

The Spirit ©f Patriotism There is< not the slightest doubt that the great majority of Australians are patriotic. That is evidenced by the acclamations of the people when they welcome home the battle-scarred heroes whom the fortune of war has rendered unfit for further active ser vice. The returned men personify the spirit of bravery that character ises the Australians still carrying on in the trenches. The cheerfulness of demeanor of the returning men as they step off the various hospital ships and transports is a clear proof of their confidence that the Allies are on the winning side and that although compelled to retire from the fighting ranks they are satisfied with the fact that they have participated in a just cause. Their experiences have brought home to them the realisation of what would have occurred to this fair land of ours had not the Allies so gallantly repulsed the .onslaughts of the aggres-. sive Hun. If all the fit men of Austra lia were imbued with the sam...

Certainly Not. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

Certainly'Not. A worthy Yorkshire canon, who had been greatly displeased by an act of disobedience perpetrated by one of his gardeners, sought an interview with the offender in' order to repri mand him. Knowing that if he were able to avoid the interview until his master's wrath had abated .he would come off with only a few mild words of cen sure, the man kept out of his way. A few days afterwards, however, when the storm was quite over, mas ter and man, came face to face in one of the hothouses, and the canon ask ed: "Why have you avoided me in so pointed a manner, of late, Johnson?'.' To which the gardener very wittily replied: "Now, I'll put it to you as a man,, sir: would you, if you could help it, stand in front of a canon to be blown up?"

Fond of Hia Pipe. Mr. Ditclifleld, ill his entertaining book on "The Parish Cleric," tells a story of a Lincolnshire curate who was a great smoker, and who was accus tomed to retire to the vestry before the sermon and there smoke a pipe while the congregation sang a psalm. "One Sunday," says Mr. Ditclifleld, "he had an extra pipe; and Joshua (the clerk) told him that the people were getting impatient. "Let. them, sing another psalm," said the curate. "They have, sir," replied the clerk. "Then let them sing the. hundred and nineteenth," replied the curate. At last lie finished his pipe and be gan to put on the black, gown, but its folds were troublesome and lie could not get it on. "I think the devil's in the gown," muttered the curate. "I think he. be," dryly replied: old Joshua.

Yankee Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

Yankee Humor. In his recently published volume of reminiscences, entitled, "In Slums and Society," the Hon. and Rev. Canon Adderley mentions as a curious fact that Mr. Gladstone used to doubt the wit and humor of the American. There was, however, one story (says Mr. Adderley) which he thouglu saved , their reputation-namely, that of the Yankee who when asked now far It was to a certain place, said: "I guess: if you go the way you're going it's about twenty-four thousand miles, but if you turn around and go the other way it's about five hundred yards." But the G.O.M. should have kepti his eyes and ears open. This surely is much funnier. A Chicago man and a St. Louis man had a bet as to which could tell. the biggest lie in so many minutes. The former began, "There was once a gentleman in Chicago " "Here, take your ten dollars," said he from St. Louis. "I can't beat that."

COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

COURAGE. Great courage is not learned where ( all is calm, ' The life of pleasure cannot mould a noble soul; He who would gain the mountain top must toil and climb, Though clouds and darkness round his pathway roll! The sunbeam could, not paint the flowers of spring. Or give them sweetness without frost and tempest rain, So life would ..prove to us a weak and worthless thing, Apart from trial and its hours of pain. True courage springs not from the plane of ease, 'Tis conflict strengthens for the greater strife, And vests the mind with more en during power to run The race that builds the noblest form of life. Live nobly, then, with courage firm and true, Meet trials faithfully and fearless as they come, .Though end and object hidden from thy finite view, They're cloud-steps reaching up ward to thy home. -R. Hare. Cooranbong, N.SAV.
