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

Sympathetic. A learned scientist, who was about to deliver an addreBS before the Brit ish Association, finally rehearsed his speech in the train on the "way to the meeting, speaking in a low voice, and using his hands to emphasise certain passages. He was accompanied by his wife, and a kindly matron, who had been watching and listening, leaned forward and, tapping her on the shoulder, said, feelingly: "You have my sincere sympathy, my poor woman; I have one just likp him at home!" Dents in furniture can be got rid of quite easily. Damp the dent with warm water, then make a pad of brown paper; damp that thoroughly, lay it 011 the dent, and hold over all a hot iron. The warmth makes the wood swell up and fill the dent. In some woods the process Is slow, but it ia sure.

Upon the historian you cannot stamp your foot. When ; you and your barbarians have follow- , ed your ancestral Huns to the dark ness prepared for you, your acts will be recorded. Jlen now unborn will shudder at your crimes. Do not fear I that the magnitude of these will be be littled. Not in vain have you striven to emulate and to surpass the su preme ignominy of Attila. No annal ist will accuse you of failing to fulfil your pitiless vow, or to redeem your j merciless pledge. When you meet At-1 tila in the realm of dead despots, At- j tila will acknowledge your primacy in the art of butchery. He will sa...
