Not So Slow After All. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
Not So Slow After All. At one time a German university developed the mania for conferring honorary degrees, and a Scottish doc tor named Mclntire, who had obtained his degree by diligent labor, became disgusted. He sent a poiite note to the faculty asking tiiem to bestow a degree upon his servant. The docto? was a great man, and the jocose na ture of the request was not suspect ed, so the parchment was accordingly sent him. After acknowledging its receipt, the physician added that, since they were so Kind'as to give his servant a degree, it woufll add to his obligation If they would confer one upon his fav orite horse. But" the faculty, the joke once fairly scented, rose to the occa sion. , "We are obliged," they wrote, "re spectfully to decline granting' so dis tinguished a favor. We have searched the college records for a precedent, but the only one to be found lies in tbo fact that some years ago a de cree was conferred upon an ass named Mclntire."
PITY THE HUMORIST. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 13 August 1914
PITY THE HUMORIST. It's not much fun to scribble rhyme? and ladle humor out, When one is wholly at a loss fo? things to write about; Sna"wt"etf'"a^Wah~tor"'ye'ars~has" had this sort of thing to do. It's very, very hard to find a them "■* that's really new. So sometimes as my weary brain 1 rummage o'er- and thresh In vain attempt to find a thought that'i just a- trifle fresh, I'm tempted sore to cease to quip, to give up joke and quirk. And grab a shovel or a pick and look for easy work.

And, indeed, it is somewhat diflicult for an outsider '.&lt;> understand how a mere jumble of snippets from old journals can be 'Von n any such sum. Yet their ac tual ialue to tle ir owner is probably i:i.' in excess of what he lias insured :h -in for, for 1 hey an h.is stock in trade, the raw material, so to speak, out. of which In- manufactures the wares by the sale of which he makes his livelihood.
