BE SURE [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
BE SURE Be sure that: if the things you seek Upon life's devious way, Are flung aside from week to week, Or changed from day to day, Life must inevitably be A record of futility. For only those who put their heart Into the things they do, ? Who finish well whate'er they start, To work and duty true, Can e'er attain that good success Which brings its own great happiness. Yet even so there still are things To seek of higher worth, The bVave, heroic soul that sings In times of pain and dearth, The heart that e'en in sorrow/s night Can keep its own inherent light. .
LOST—A HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
. ? lost— a hat; 'Maria!' roared Mr. Gayboy, 'where on earth' is. my hat?' ' ? ? 'I'm sure I don't know,' retorted his wife, still showing signs of the. family scene which had marked his return home in the wee small hours. 'You ought to,' he said, angrily. 'I can't keep a thing about the house. It's a) shame the way things disappear without any apparent reason! I'd just like to ; know where my hat is!' 'So would I,' replied his wife, mean ingly. /'You didn't have^it on when you came home last night.' r Tommy: 'Mother, let me go to see the monkey's:' Mother: 'Why, what an idea! Ima gine wanting to, see the monkeys when, auntie is here!', . She was anxious to learn the^latest news about her neighbor's accident, and turning towards her husband, who was immersed in the evening/ paper, she said: 'Henry, can you see any thing in the paper about Mr. Jones running over his mother-in-law?' 'Not yet,' replied Mr. Peek. 'I '.haven't come to the sporting news!' Master: 'You look sweet enough to...
THE ONLY CHILD. Her Place in the Family. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
THE /ONLY CHIL|D. - Her Place in the Family. ? 'Oh, Helen's an only child, and her parents are completely .wrapped up in her!'. How often one hears such a remark, ? nowadays, when families are small and the 'one ewe lamb' is common. And - - it's a remark which gives a very good clue as to the type of character which the only child is likely to have. For good or bad (and it works both ways) Helen never has a share. She is the sole heiress to all her parents can give her, in love, attention, educa tion, money, social advantages. There are few homes in which there is not 1 plenty for only one child, so Helen early becomes accustomed to the b^st of everything. . Not for this favored little girl to learn economy, to do without or to' stand aside while Mummy gives love and care to a little brother or sister. No risk of teasing from a big brother, no 'minding' of younger children, no overcrowded home for Helen. She- is the only child. Consequently her parents are naturally wrapped up in he...

It's just making Blount's cavalry a private detective agency for Morales.' .-??.. . The major was non-committal. 'All that'may^or may not be true. But I'll be glad of a little activity for the boys.

'It's the'best of reasons, Price. Man hunting has al ways been a popular sport.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 11 January 1934
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. The right/.thing to do is sometimes a simple matter, such as Columbus' action in standing an egg on end, or Alexander's solution of the Gordian knot. I was staying wifii a retired po liceman in a town in western Ireland, and /one day his one and ' only pig found itself loose on the road. For half an hour four of us chased that porker up and down the road in an endeavor to force it into the gateway leading to its sty. Every dodge was tried and failed, and the pig seemed to be the least tired qf all in the game. Some of the spectators had to sit on the grass to recover from their laugh ter. Sauntering along the road came a stalwart ' young Irish Free State sol dier, who took in the situation at a glance. He seized the pig by its two hind legs, lifted her up and walked her into her sty on her front legs. He got a dram for two minutes' work.

'What was that?' iisfce.d her hus band;- curiously. 'She said a tall, dark man would shortly have a. guiding influence in my life, and it was a tall negro who, showed me out. Wonderful, I call.it.'

People there had fun with him several times a day by placing a penny and a sixpence on the open .palm of his hand and 'telling him to take his pick of the two. In each case the lad would pick the penny and then the crowd would laugh. A : kind-hearted woman asked him one day: 'Don't you know the differ ence between a penny and a sixpence? Don't you know the sixpence, though smaller, is worth more?'. ' 'Course ,;I know,'1? ? he . answered;' 'but they wouldn't try it any more if I ever took the tanner.' Mr. Taxpayer glanced at his wife's v new summer dress, made a grimace, and in tones emphasising disgust, he said: 'People these days ..are alwjays spending money- they haven't .yet earned, 'for things they, don't heed; to impress people they don't like!' .- Village Shoemaker; 'What did your father say- when you told him the route from King's Cross was mostly under- ' ground?' \ ...

Cricket The first cricket match under the auspices of the Huon sub-branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. took place at Huon ville last Saturday, and proved1 a most enjoyable outing.

HARRIS FAMILIES v. WOOLLEY FAMILIES. An interesting cricket match was played at ' Grove last Saturday be tween the Harrisses of Grove, and Woolleys, of Glen Huon. Woolleys winning the toss sent Harrises in to bat, and they scored 146. The Woolleys' score stood1 at 143 when time was called. The match was very exciting towards the finish, as the Woolleys had three wickets in hand, and required 14 runs to win. With the last over to be bowled, and the last man in, they required 4 runs to win, but through good fielding they only scored one run, so the Harrisses won by 3 runs.
