Let us take a privileged peep at ( part of this wonderful masculine ' trousseau, of which the' writer has 1 been fortunate enough to get details and prices.

SOFT ANSWER. An impecunious man was stopped in the street by an' acquaintance to/wliom he owed money. The creditor did not waste any time. , ? 'Rogue!' lie shouted. 'When are you going to pay me? I've1 been wait ing tor montns ana won t stana it any longer.' Haven't you any sense of shame?' ' ? It was a difficult .situation for the other, and his reply, when.it came, was for the benefit of the crowd -that had collected. ? ? 'Well,' he said, 'what did' you reply to all that?' . - - The prisoiierf was on trial for steal ing. ducks. His counsel addressed the jury at great length, pointing out first ly, that it had not been proved con clusively that the prosecutor had lost any ducks; secondly, that the ducks found in the prisoner's cottage were not those of the prosecutor; thirdly, that the prisoner had established an absolute alibi. Just as the judge began to sum up the prisoner interposed- and asked if he might say something, and, as an in dulgence, this was permitted. 'All I want to ...

THE DREAMY CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934
THE DREAMY CHILD. The dreamy, sensitive child is a great problem to his parents, who are never quite sure whether they are giving house-room to a budding genius or a mere bundle of shyness that needs waking up. The majority of parents are perhaps too ready to imagine that because a child is quiet and thoughtful, and in dulges in day-dreams, he is going to do wonders in the world. Now it is always Well to remember that too much dreaming gets one no where — even if he is a genius. Dreaming, of course, is agreeable; and it is natural for young people to dream their dreams. But a curb should be put upon it, for over-indulgence in day-dreaming makes young people lazy. A certain amount of dreaming seems necessary for the development of the mind, but to allow a dreamy child to day-dream for as long a time as he pleases is heading for disaster. It is much easier to dream than to face realities, and a dreamy, sensitive child, unless taken in hand and coaxed out of his dreaming, may find in t...
MIXED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934
MIXED.' \ It was a great day. The twins were ''*** to be christened. The proud father had, however, met some companions earlier in the day, and had toasted the health of the infants to an unreason able extent. When the minister ap peared he had a suspicion that all was not as it should be. Howeyer, he pro ceeded with the ceremony, and in due course asked the father what names he desired should be bestowed upon the children. The father, after some , hesitation stammered: 'Shteak an' Kidney!' - The. minister looked aghast. 'What did you say?' he asked, sternly. 'Shteak an' Kidney,' again came the mumbled response. , The minister closed his book and said: 'Go. away, and come back when you are sober. You ought to be ' ashamed to, come here in tnis condi tion.' And the party broke up sadly, in spite of the attempted explanation of the- weeping mother that what her hus band had been trying to say was 'Kate and Sydney.' : The consistently lucky punter was . asked by a novice how it . was d...
AN ELOPEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 18 January 1934
AN ELOPEMENT. . The war was over, I was pleased to : think that I had returned unscathed. I was young, I had a job, and I was in love. But marriage was beside the ques tion. Houses were difficult to find, sal-, aries were of the lean order, and our parents strongly disapproved of the very idea. So marriage was' far away from my thoughts as I sat at my office desk ? one July afternoon in a little room high above a main thoroughfare in a busy industrial city. I was alone, the boss was away out of town, and the sunlight ' came streaming through the window, beck- ./ oning me into the open spaces beyond the bustle and noise of the city. A woman came into the office and asked for the boss. When she knew he was away she stopped and com menced to chat. And, before I real ised what she was about, she was tell ing my fortune through the medium v of a pack of cards. 'You're going4 to be married at the end of the month,' she said, and it's ; going to be a very hasty wedding.' I laughed and thou...

LACHLAN DANGEROUS BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
LACHLAN DANGEROUS BRIDGE. The bridge over the Lachlan River, known as the 'Sawmill Bridge,' is., now in such an unsafe state of repair that the Government has erected a; notice to the public, warning them that who ever crosses the. ? bridge does so at their own risk. This is' certainly a bad state of affairs, f or fruit carters are now forced to travel; a deviation road, which is a much longer route, and parts of at-jhas .not even been formed, being^ nothing better than a cattle track. ' Mr O. M. Graham, when spoken to during the week- in reference, to ' the state of the bridge, said he. was most disgusted1 with, the Government for not building a new bridge 'at this point before the busy' time of 'fruit and hop picking arrived. The Gov ernment, he stated, promised a - newj bridge months ago. 'He and Mr P. J. Graham urged the work to be done when unemploment was so rife. It is now three' years .since the con dition of the bridge was first brought under the notice' of the 'Gov®rnnient...
The Fruit Industry. A. AND P. EXPORT COUNCIL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
The Fruit Industry. A. AND P. EXPORT COUNCIL. To the Editor. Sir, — Your leader in Thursday's issue opens up a wide field for dis cussion. But any discussion, if it is to be of value, must give both sides of any question the same impartial consideration. The underlying motive which animates, the antag onist to any proposal must aiso ue looked into, as personal jealousy, greed, etc., play far too large a part in arguments which should be en tirely impersonal. It would appear at the outset that the Apple and Pear Export Council does not find favor in your sight, and doubtless it has its share of errors and misjudgments. Clause 7 of the constitution leads to con fusion' andl reduces opportunity for amicable agreement; yet tb con demn the Council because, of certain faulty clauses in its constitution ( especially as tnose clauses have al ready been ear-marked for altera tion), implies a destructive and not a constructive outlook. The 'Huon Times' has for a con siderable period (and wise...
DERWENT VALLEY Social, Sporting, Industrial The Bush Fires GENEROUS RESPONSE FOR HELP. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
DERWENT VALLEY Social, Sporting, Industrial (By Special Correspondents) The Bush Fires GENEROUS RESPONSE FOR HELP. Features of the recent outbreaks of the bush fires were the unpre- j cedented extent of the fires, the fierceness of their burning, the enormous damage to property, the bravery of the people affected, and j of those who have, and are, assisting Jri firrVif Offainpt fUo flovwoe nn/1 ' in' 'the ' ministrations to the injured, and the distribution of relief by way of food, clothing and other comforts. These features of the situation constitute the silver lining to other wise very dark clouds. All con cerned, excepting a few degenerates from Hobart, behaved splendidly. The organisation has been good, and the work wonderful, showing -the stuff our people are made of. Where so many have behaved nobly, it is perhaps unfair to disci'iminate, but special mention can be made of the widespread approval and apprecia tion accorded the Toe H members and organisation, ably backed up b...

FILM SCENE TAKEN IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 25 January 1934
FILM SCENE TAKEN IN COURT. Considerable excitement was caused at the Darlinghurst, Sydney, Criminal Courts the other day when, during the hearing of a case in which Dr. Everard, alias John Warwick, was charged with manslaughter, a figure rr^hed through the door leading into the court and shouted at the judge seated on the bench: '?Everard is nc-t . . .' was all the man coma say umuiu cuiiapsmg uxi uic court floor. The jurors, who had just re-entered the court to deliver their verdict of 'Guilty,' ' clustered around the uncon scious figure, and the situation was sufficiently intense for the barristers and press representatives' to leap to their feet. . However, there was no need for alarm, as the scene had been staged, for the new Cinesound film, 'The Silence of Dean Maitland,' in which the noted English actor, John Longden, plays the leading John Longden. role. Other play-, ers in the court drama were Char lotte Francis, the leading lady, Audrey Nicoison, Fred MacDonald nnd Les Wart...
