The pttbUo can over hear the messages sent by officials on the telephone, and those of them thnt can 'read the telegraphic) code by sound, ean drop in for a little private information occasionally. The public write their telegrams on the counter, overlooked by tboBe Btanding along side or behind. It iff almost impos sible for people to avoid catching a glimpse of the contents of telegrams.

IT WAS "OFF." [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 February 1899

; IT WAS 'OFF.' It is a remuvkuljle characteristic of the waiters in Paris restaurants that, no matter what you ask for, even if it be a fried piece of the moon, they will invariably reply ' Yes,' and either bring it to you, or, on re turning, assert witli sorrow thut uofoitu nately there is no more left. Mery, the well-known author, tried this joke on once, ana tie peremptorily ordered ot tlie wauci a sphinx a la Marengo. ' I am sorry to say we have-no more, monsieur,' replied the waiter. ' What ! no more sphinx V ex claimed Mery, feigning astonishment.

"A FIG FOR THE MASTER." [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 February 1899

„ A FIG FOR THE MASTER.' This story is told of a master of Trinity College, Cambridge, in days long gone by, who hid a paitinlity for tigs. He held that there was one supreme moment in the ex istence of a fig when it should be eaten, not a minute before or after, and he watched over his fig tree with tenderness and devotion. it was a miiu year, ana aitnougn cue sun nau done his best in the perfecting process, only one tig was the result. Hoping to enjoy his fruit on the morrow, tile muster wrapped a piece of silver paper round it, leaving it lubelled, 'The Master's Fig.' What a more than foolish thing to do, with a fen hundred ' undergrads ' about ! The auspici ous day dawned, and the master, looking at bis watch for tho last time, walked confi dently to the tree. But imagine his diBuiay on finding his precious fruit gone, and on the now empty packet the label ' A Fig for the Master.' ?

TRAMPS' HOTELS. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 17 February 1899

TRAMPS' HOTELS. If there were in England' a pitper similar in scope to the Parisian beggar's organ— here, surely, is an ' obviouB void ' in trade journsiiism — it would be crammed with letters from indignant subscribers on the shortcomings of wayfarers' lodging-houses. For wherever nomads foregather they in variably discuss tho public accommodation of l.bu road, nnd criticise it unmercifully. It is, in truth, very bad (writes T, W. Wil kinson in ' Good Words '). Scattered over the three kingdoms are thousands of vagrants' lintels, which are so well distributed that only very rarely, excispi in out of the way corners of the country, does the ti amp lind, as on leaving llugby, that there is no repting place for him within a radius of about a dozen miles. CIobb together, in some comparatively small places on the great trunk roads, are all three kinds of caravansaries open to tianips : ' models,' barrack-like buildings to which men only are usually admitted ; beer-houses having beds to ...
