BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914

BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. By Win. North. There have boon many awful floods in India, 'but none quite so appalling as the one which devastated the land before the squirrel obtained his pros. out livery. It sounis odd to date a great occurrence by so apparently tri fling a matter, yet curiously enough the flood in question is solely remem bored by the squirrol's change of dross. lie was asleep, anll so were his wife and family-the babies were the thl, est little creatures, but he was very proud of them-when the relentless volumes of water canme crashing dlowl the valley. It uprooted the tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree with Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and their precious in fants went floating down the tide. The position was critical, If the poor, startled little squirrel had given himself up for lost and lhal .spent the time in recalling his past sins, and in taking a fond farewell nf his dear ones, no11ne could have blamit...

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER," A few months ago a noble lord whose finances are usually in a state which some folk describe as "shaky," had occasion to visit a small town in Scotland, Of course his lordship put up at the best hotel, and proceeded to regale himself in lordly fashion, re gardless of expense., Preparatory to the end of his visit the scion of no billty had an interview with the pro prietor, which resulted in that worthy accepting his lordship's cheque, which, however, was dated some six months ahead, the canny Scot having allowed a wide margin of profit as in terest, A fortnight later the ama ed noble. man was quietly handed the self same cheque by the.factor of his es tate 'in payment of the sale of some cattle belonging to his lordship, The artful hotel proprietor, having a bro ther in England in the cattle-dealing line, and being rather 'dubious about the nobleman's ability to meet his li abilities, had sent the cheque to his relative with the injunction to obtain Its value fr...

Putting It Nicely. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914

Putting It Nicely. A group of four convicts were over. heard the other day chatting about what they were "in for, and each one in turn told his experience, The first one had killed a man, the second had put another man's signa ture to a cheque, while the third one had gone in for a plurality of spouses. The fourth man, however, did not seem inclined to make any disclo sures, He was a sanctimonious-look ing man, who, although a professional gambler, was called "parson," "Come, parson, what brought you hero?" "I don't chre to say," said he, "Out with it! Shoot anybody?" ask ed one. "No, I didn't. shoot anyone; but since you would like to know, I got 'time' because I .didn't build a church ?" Deep s:lence fell upon the group. No such excuse for penal servitude had ever been heard before, and the "parson" was asked to explain, "Well, you see, .a congregation raised several hundred. pounds to build a church, and handed it over to me to build, and I didn't build it. That's all!"

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 23 May 1914

RICHES IN MIDDLE AGE, The poetry of life gathers around its commencement and lts close, just as the poet finds inspiration in the rising or setting sun. Infancy has its charm of. innocence, youth has its charm of energy and hope, age has ies charm of pathos. But around mid. 'dle life there seems to gather no halo of poetry, The bird that wakes the morning with its song is silent in the midday hour. The burden and heat of the day are not favorable to music, The poet who will celebrate the open brow of childhood or the furrowed cheek of age will find no inspiration in the anxious eye and busy front of middle life. The maiden, who moves fancy free among the meadows; an) the tired face and eyes of tranquil resignation, bordered by silver hair, may alike provoke his muse. But who will sing of the middle-aged man or matron? The whole atmosphere of such lives lacks the poetic qual. ity. "Their existence is practical, pro. sale, dull, We find it hard to invest such lives with. poetry, But t...
