A PRIZE POEM. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 19 February 1914

A PRIZE POEM.. A syndicate of American editors offered 1,000. dols. for the best appeal to newspaper subscribers to pay-up their subscriptions. The prize was given to the Editor of the. ''Rocky Mountain Celt." This is the poem: — Lives of great men all remind us Honest men don,'t stand/ a chance; The more we work there grow behind us Bigger patches on our pants. On our pants, once new, and glossy, Now are stripes of different hue All because subscribers linger, And won't pay us what i$ due. Then let us all be up and doing: ! Send your mite, however small; Or. when the co\d. of. tyyit^r strikes us. I We shall have no pants at all!

The following composition on men Is credited to a li.ttle girl: — "Men are what women marry. They drink and smoke and swear, but don't go to church. Perhaps if they wof* bonnets they would. They are mora logical than women, and ajso mora zoological. Both, r&en and women sprung from monkeys, but the wp;. men sprung further than the men.'' We must remeajher that there Is never complete harmony, between the. young and the old. The former live for the future,, the latter for Vbe pres ent. He who has a pure and' unselfish, love for any one being in the universe has thsreby a new life, new powers, new possibilities, and jjevy perceptions of ml.

apyertising pays. Business Man—"You remember that 'ad..' I had in your paper, and took out two months ago? "VVell, I want to have (t put back again." Editor— "Why, I thought you said no one m>ticed it while it was in." Business Man (humbly)—"They didn't seem to until I took it out." The mere fact of your advertising lets people know you are still in business; also that your business is sufficiently important to stand advertisings If you are in busi ness, you cannot afford to do without advertising, as it is too mu,ch of an ad-, mission to the world at large.—Extract from an interview with a man who has profited by newspaper advertising. A millionaire business man has placed on record this beautiful simile: —"You might as well try to shampoo an elephant with a thimbleful of soap suds as attempt to do businessi and ignore advertising."

THE STREET CLEANER [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 19 February 1914

THE STREET CLEANER A paper having said that "To recog nise the supremacy of the street cleaner would be to usher In the reign of chaos," "The Daily Herald" takes it to task and says:—"Now, that just brings us-very close to the root of the matter. 'Supremacy* is indeed the wrong word, an Instance of angry ex aggeration. The street cleaner does not want supremacy. He wants justice, the right to live a human and progressive life, his place in the sun. In the social and spiritual economy he is as truly and deeply to be considered as the artist, the author, or the doctor. We may thus re-state the proposition: To recognise the importance, the dignity, and the possibility of the street cleaner (and a hundred such as he) is to usher in the reign of sanity and humanity/ "

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 19 February 1914

NORWAY MODERN INFLUENCE "I have just received a letter from a friend at present travelling in Norway, where she has not been for twelve years," says the editor of "The Vine yard." "It was not written with any Idea of publication, but so finely and sharply does this letter, from a coun try which is blessed with one o£ the noblest peasantries in the world, point the evils which "The Vineyard" is out to flght, and the good which it exists to defend and encourage, that I venture, In good conscience, to print it without her permission." "It is like a dream to find oneself again in this romantic land, and in one day we have already seen so much that It seems long since we left home! The crossing was horrid in every way, but we had some quiet hours in smooth water before we arrived in the early morning, and Stavanger with its clean, many-colored wooden houses rising out of the still fjord, and the encircling mountains stealing out of the morning mist restored one.

Sin, —While not altogether tltexgreeing with the action of tlie Towonvr Shire Coun cil in abolishing the bonu* for fox destruc tion, I question very much if the local body is legally correct. I always understood that municipalities were obliged to pay for fox destruction; mid recently I noticed that, in* connection with a flitnilnr step by another country Council, one of the opposing mem-' | bern declared that lie had a pvivately-ro | ceived l*gal opinion to tho effect that no Council had the power to diHcontinuo pay ment of the fox bonus. Would it not be well for the Towong Shire Council to ascer tain iU legal position in thin matter?— Yours, &c., REYNARD.

ANATOLE FRANCE AN APPRECIATION [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 19 February 1914

ANATOLE FRANCE . & AN APPRECIATION (By Professor M. A. Gerothwohl, in "The Daily News.") M. Franco ha3 been hailed among us as a great novelist, moralist and critic. At which he must have smiled, as is his wont, with playful and unruffled bonhomie. For he is not, nor would he be, any thing bo solemn, or so narrow, or so objective. He may, indeed, have writ ten essays in the guise of fiction, or Action in the guise of essays, but he has never wilfully indited a work of fiction nor a moral treatise. Again, he may have written of books and authors, and about them, or around them; for ho has spont a lifetime in their midst, and in their privacy. But he never meant to write on books or authors, to turn literary critic or reviewer. He is guiltless of all pro fessional intentions, as of all longing to express or realise anyone or any thing in art—save in relation to him self, to his enjoyment of the curious and the beautiful. LITERARY GLOBE-TROTTING In brief, M. France is a pure eg...

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OF ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 19 February 1914

STOLEN PICTURE RECORD OP ACCUSED. Perugia's pretence that he stole the "Gioconda" from the Louvre with a view to restoring some of the master pieces carried away by Napoleon is badly chosen (says tho Paris correspon dent of "The Daily Telegraph" of De cember 16). He does not seem to know that the "Gioconda". happens just to be one of the paintings of the Louvre that wero never in the possession of Italy. It was acquired from the artist by Francois I., King of France, for the sum of 4000 gold ecus, and had been at Fontainebleau and Versailles long be fore it entered the Louvre. That Peru gia simply hope to make money out of the theft seems to be proved by the fact that before he carried off the pic ture he collected the names of those who he thought might be likely pur chasers. Thus two little notebooks on which he inscribed his washing bills and found in his room contain significant inscrip tions. In one of them, dated December 28, 1910, that is to say, nine months before the theft,...
