QUITE SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926

QUITE SAFE. The village doctor has just bought himself a new ear. It is to be feared that all his interest in the machine was I not snielv due to the fact that, with its aid, he would be able to reach his patients more quickly. Soon he decided that the ear was not powerful enough to gratify his craving for speed, and he advertised it for 63le. In due course a prospective purchaser turned up, and was taken for a trial run. They whirled along at a furious pace. *'I say, look out,'' cautioned the pas senger. 'You're doing over 60 miles an hourj1' 'Don't worry about that!' chuckled the doctor- 'I've got the village police man in bed with rheumatism.' ?

OUT OF LUCK. There were two men in the comp5rt ment. One, accompanied by a attle iiirl,' and a little boy, wore a dejected air, and took no notice of the gambols of his children. The other resented their gaiety Indeed, the little boy had just sat down heavily upon his hat, and the little girl had knocked a suit-case off the rack on to his hea'd. Finally, the stranger could bear it no longer. 'Sir,' he said, 'if you cannot keep your children in order. I must lodge a] complaint. j The father sighed. \ 'Your misfortune,' lie said, 'are as^ nothing to mine.

'VIRGIN' VILLAGE MEMORIES OF ST. JOAN We came upon it almost unawares 'en passant par la Lorraine' — for Domremy, birthplace of Joan of Arc, lies hidden in that ancient province on the East of France, just beyond the vineyards of Champagne. We motored from the other side, slowly and laboriously down the steep roads of the Vosges mountains, where red rocks are piled above gloomy passes, and castles are perched on fantastic heights against the sky. It was restful to see larm-nouaeo uuu guuny iuuiu& hills, and green .pastures sloping to the Moselle and the Meuse. Kestful, too, in other ways. With this feeling uppermost, and strangely in tune with what awaited us, we drove into a town upon a hill and caught sight of its name, Vaudricourt. That stirred memories. . . .

And soon, after lunching very pleas antly and...
