Sad Refrain. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910

Sad Refrain. Bachelor: Before the wedding you told me that married life would be one grand, sweet song. Benedict (gloomily): Yes, and since then I have found it is one grand, sweet refrain. Bachelor: Refrain? Benedict: Yes; my wife insists that I refrain from cards, refrain from smoking, and refrain from the club. Solomon and Moses, while walking by the canal, saw a notice-board, which stated that five shillings would be paid to whoever rescued another man from drowning. It didn't take them more than a minute to arrange that one should fall in and be saved by the other, and the 'stakes' divided. In went Sol, and found it rather deep er than he expected. However, he splashed about, crying: 'Come on, Moses! Save me!' Moses hesitated. 'Sol,' he said, 'I've been reading that notice-board again, and it says 'Ten shillings for a dead body.' Now, do be reasonable.' The desire to do right for right's sake can only be instilled in men when they are in the nursery. )

Doctor Henson rose, and with a gen ial smile said: 'Ladies and gentlemen, I am not so great a fool as Bishop Vincent' — another roar of laughter, after which the speaker added — 'would have you believe!'

SQUIRE TRAFFORD'S CENTENARY. By W. B. I. i Seated on the rude benches in the bar-parlor of the Three Sheaves were several regular habitues, friends of the landlord rather than his custom ers. These were Jacob Tuer, the grey-haired keeper of Lonesome Halt's general shop; Sergeant Wagstaff, an old soldier, who existed on a pension and his sons; Jonas Heywood, the par ish clerk and sexton; and Simon Ditchfield, of uncertain occupation. Job Nash, landlord of the Sheaves, buzzed about the room like a stout fly. Jacob Tuer was reading a much creased daily paper. ''Seems to have bin a lot of fellers who'd a' bin a hundred if they'd lived to this year,' he remarked, in his drawling, rural accent, as he peered at the others over the rims of his spec tacles. 'There was the Grand Old Man,' he proceeded, returning to the paper, 'and Lard Tennyson, and Presi dent Lincoln — fine man, 'e was — and them musician fellers, whose names beat me, and several as I've never heerd tell on — Edgar Hallen Po...
