RAILWAY "CRANKS." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

RAILWAY " IRANKS." "Yes," said a railway official, "the world is full of cranks, and we get our share of them. "There was the man who photographed his season ticket on post cards, which he supplied wholesale to the collectors. IHis objection was' o pulling out his season ticket. Another man would write down the number of his ticket and then say ,he had lost it. A farmer who is now quarrel ling over some fowls wants us to 'sack' the superintendent, who he says 'will never get to heaven.' "This reminds me of the king of cranks. He is a clergyman, and is devoted to guards and engine drivers. He waves hands, um brellas and red handkerchiefs at them in token of friendship. But he doesn't like the general manager, and bombards him with letters, post cards and printed doggerel. "You have heard about the man who would not give up his ticket because he found that according to English law what a man has paid for cannot be taken away from him? He beat the company, and the by-law has been modif...

THE SANITY OF LUNACY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

THE SANITY OF LUNACY. "The. only people who act by pure rea son are all in lunatic asylums." Thus a medical.man. You are not to suppose that lhe is indulging mn that armusement, very popular with his profession,.trymg to make your flesh creep. He does not want you to be horrified. He is quite satisfied that' the .purely reasonable people should *be in the lunatic asylum;. And a good many of us will no doubt agree that there is the best place for them. Our medical man, if .we understand him aright, was having his fling at. pure reason by way-of glorifying the female sex. It is, you know, commonly said by fellows of thc baser sort that women are not governed by reason. To whdch it is no -doubt a crush ing answer. that all, the people -who are so governed are mid. But some of us, a trifle bewildered .by these sweeping charges and dashing repartees, may want to ask what, if anyuhing, they exactly mean. Now, to begin at the beginning, it is often asserted that women care nothing about lo...

"GUNBOAT" SMITH BEATS LANGFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

"'GUNBOAT" SMITH BEATS LANG FORD . "Gunboat" Smith was awarded the decision ovter Sam Langford at the end of a twelve-round bout aj Boston. Smith did nearly all the fighting. in the early rounds, Langford makirig no" serious defence. When Smith weakened, however, the negro assumed the aggressive, and belabored Smith with right and left on the .body. Iie olpened a gash under the white man's eye. Smith was tired antl Langford apparently fresh. Many spectators were surprised at -the referee's decision. : The surprise of the "many spectators" may mean that the referee's verdict was a surprising one-not' justified by the results of the contest; or that the spectators were astounded to see "Gunboat"' Smith defeat the invincible Langford. Either construction may be the correct one; both cannot be right. ' S"Gunboat" Smith has had the misfortune to fall foul of some of the American boxa,n critits, who have delighted in cheapening his performances. Bostonians have 'been fed up' with those de...

M'GOORTY V. DAVE SMITH. FIGHT LASTS LESS THAN A ROUND; At Sydney Eddie .M'Goorty, the American mid dle weight, on Thursday night at the stadium knocked out Dave Smith in less than a. rouild. The contest created great .excitement in Sydney, especially in view of the fact that M'Goorty had knodlced out Smith in one minute and 40 seconds when the pair met in America some months a:o. A packed house greeted the appearance of ..the bo-ers in the ring, and after M'Goorty had held up proceedings for a minute or two by arranging his belt, an action which caused a section of the crowd to hoot, there'by signifying that they re garded it as a trick to scare Smith, the men got to work, M'Goorty went straight for his man, as if he already kliilw what avas in. store. His: left hook was seen in action right aways Although Smith iiad had it incessantly imliressed upon him to watch it; he could not. lie saw it coming and felt it come.

MEHEGAN BEATS BROWN. FINE DISPLAY BY AMERICAN. { The eight or nine thousand speotatora who watched' Melhegan and Brown fight ing in an elimination contest for the light-weight championship of the worldt I Baker's Stadium on Boxing night witnessed as fine a display of "the noble art" as has ,ever been seen in Melbourne. Both men entered the ring in perfect condition, fought their 20 rounds in the best of good humor, and though their respective styles were poles apart, they proved to be so evenly matched that very . few points could have separated them at the close. Both 'men received a great ovation on entering tahe ring, and it was "evident that "Pal" Brown had many supporters even in Mchegan's stronghold. The Aus tralian had Duke Mullins, Jim Mehe gan,. Dave Bell and *J. Preston in his corner, while the American was at- 1 tended by Ed. Williams, Jack Mitchell and J. Doherty. F. Fullalove acted as referee.

NERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

NERVES* The "nervy" woman is so apt to let her nerves get the mastery that she frequenrly entertains .fears which to a person with a well-balanced nervous system may. ap pear. -absurd. Some ..people, for. instani?e, develop a fear of going'out of doors alone; they b ecome; almost te?rorised at crossing the road or being in any large open space. Large buildings, such ' s .theatres /or. churches, appal them. Others cannot bear to be in a small room or in an apartment with a closed door. All these fears have, of course, an imaginary basis, and can be made to disappear by the persistent exer-. cise of. self-control. When once the deter mined effort has been made, to go out and brave the supposed dangers, ;,whaev~cr the result' may ..be, the patierit 'dis'covers that they are non-existent. It is in cases like this that mind-control, or mental therapeutics, is of eminent value. For the "nervy" person repose of mind and of body is' one of the first steps to wards cure. The ",rest cure" is ...

VICTORIA V. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SECOND DAY'S PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914

VICTORIA V. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SECOND DAY'S. PLAY. Saturday was a real sunshine holiday, breathing of spring rather than midsum mer, and ideal for outdoor sport, but the batting on the Melbourne ground was prac. tically featureless. Seldom has a feebler display of batting been shown on a per feet wicket than that of the Victorians. Five good wickets fell for 29 runs! Bracher shaped fairly well, and Park was the vie tim of a bad decision, but with the excep tion of Armstrong, who was being medical ly treated for malarial fever, and perhaps Ransford and Carroll, the Victorian disi play was weak and indecisive. Kirkwood kept a fine length with his slows, and varied his pace in brainy fashion, but the batsmen treated him to far greater respect than he deserved. Instead of using their feet and moving to the ball, the majority seemed "snowed up," and unable to leave their crease. The collapse. was disappoint ing in .the extreme, for the home support ers looked forward to our representatives...
