MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL Miss Kathryri Harris, a music-hall artiste, has just had a stroke of luck. Sho says that eighteen years ago, when she was "working in drama" in the mining districts "out West" in the States, she was a great favorite with the miners in those rough set tlements. They gave her many presents, such as shares in their mines, which, of course, were usually hardly worth the paper upon which they were written. However, Miss Harris, instead o£ plastering the walls with them, kept them in an old tin trunk, and a few weeks ago, while in Paris, Bhe heard from some gentlemen, wlio were in terested in mining matters, that the exact value of her old shares was £10,000. The lawyers are now busily engaged in establishing lier ownership, and shortly she expects a nice fat sum for the shares.
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RioN POOR HORSE. J The poor rich liorBe, driven by a tall coachman with high hat and white j gloves, looked very gay as he pranc ed from the door of an elegant establishment on the avenue. The breast of the noble creature was covered with foam, and lie tossed his head up and down, and back and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So high were his eyes—almost look ing toward the sky—that he scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding him with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him as belonging to another "set" than his entirely. The old horse did not suppose it would be any good to pass the time 01 day with his neigh bor, as the rich horse undoubtedly re garded himself as far too grand to communicate with such a humble per sonage; so he changed the bit around in his mouth, and was just about to drop into a gentle doze, when a sound of distress from the rich horse caused his plain neighbor to open his eyes wide...
THE BEST THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
THE BEST THINGS. "I like to have company," said a little girl, "for then we have our pret ty dishes." Again a little boy ex claimed: "I wish we could play in the parlor just a little while, but mo ther says it is uo place for boys." I know clumsy little fingers will dis arrange and break even our most cherished things, but better so than to make them stay in the kitchen to frown at them and keep saying, "You mustn't touch!" "Come out of that room, you dirty boy!" and to have the table set with all the cracked dish es the house affords. There are cheap stores in every large town and very pretty cups and saucers for sale, so let the children see pretty things, even if cheap, on the table and not scold if they are broken by the handling of these unskilled fingers. Don't shut up the parlor, especially if it is the most sunny room in the house and sit in a room where there is no sun light. These cheerful beams wipe out the microbes and keep us well and in good spirits. Don't have the pre...

LET THE SUNSHINE IN! [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
LET THE SUNSHINE IN! It pays to wear a smiling face And laugh our troubles down, For all our little trials wait Our laughter or our frown. Beneath the magic of a smile Our doubts will fade away, As melts the frost in early spring Beneath the sunny ray. It pays to make a worthy cause, By helping it, our own; .* To give the current of our lives A true and noble tone. It pays to comfort heavy hearts Oppressed with dull despair, And leave in sorrow-darkened lives A gleam of brightness there. It pays to give a helping hand To* eager, earnest youth, To note, with all their waywardness, Their courage and their truth; To strive with sympathy and love Their confidence to win. It pays to open wide the heart And let the sunshine in.
Mistaken. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
Mistaken. "Now, you don't need to tell me who this gentleman is," cried Miss Plunger in her usual headlong gush, when one day she came upon Jones and a respectably-dressed stranger talking together in the street. "This gentleman is your brother, Mr. Jones, I can see the ilkeness between vou at a glance." "Pardon me," retorted Jones, stif fly. "This—er—gentleman is Raffer !y, the rag-and-bone man, in his best clothes, trying vainly to induce me to lend him a shilling after spending his oid-age pension in half a day."
Helping the Treasurer. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
Helpina the Treasurer. Tile difficulty experienced nowadavs in deciding what to tax and what to leave untaxed recalls the story of an earlier Treasurer, who was reduced to despair in similar circumstances. • Finnly he decided to consult - a friend who had on several occasions helped him to find fresh sources of revenue, and having written to this friend he waited hopefully f r his re ply. The friends suggestion came by re turn. "Put a tax on umbrellas," he wrote, "and make the bishops order the prayer for rain to be read in all the churches." The Old 'Un: Pluck, my boy, pluck— first and last, that is the one" essential to success in business. The Young 'Un: Oh, of course, I quite understand thai. The trouble is finding someone to pluck.

ALBURY-AND BEECHWORTH HOSPITALS. Tho report of the Beechworlh Hospital collector to his committee with regard to the Albury Hospital authorities objecting to the Hooch worth collector operating on the Tallungatta-Cudgewa railway work's (recently reported in this pupei')- was brought under the notice of Mr. John Campbell, President of the Albury Disr1 trict Hospital, by a Daily News reporter a few days ago. Mr. Campbell pointed out that tho Beechworlh people wern laboring under a misconception of tho position as fur as tho Albury Hospital committee is concerned. Up to tho pre sent, the Albury Hospital has received nothing [in the shapo of subsidy} from the Victorian Government, ns alleged, although sorao arrangement iu that re gard is understood to bo pending.
