Pluck in Defeat. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

Pluck in Defeat. A recent Socialist candidate said o£ his defeat: "At any rate we put up, we Social ists, a 'brave if hopeless fight. And now, in our defeat, we are as cheery ajiJhe traveller. He 'bought a ticket, £.nd then, going out on the platform, said: " 'How soon does the train start?' " " 'Why, there she goes now,' said a station hand. 'You've just missed her.' "The traveller leapt on to the line and set out in pursuit of the train with all his might. But in two or three minutes he came trudging back over the ties. "A laughing crowd had gathered, and the station hand said: " 'Well, did yon catch her?' " 'No,' said the traveller; 'but, by jingo, I made her puff.'" "Cassell's" for April—the largest magazine in the world—is just issued. There is the same wonderful value, the repeated wonder of fine subjects and favorite writers as in previous numbers. Warwick Deeping, Olive Wadsley, H. G. Wells, Radcliffe Mar tin, and a host of other. well-known authors contribute to this issue,...

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here is a recipe—'buy wrecks. A beach 'boat which cost about £200 to 'build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone.re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a large quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consisted ...

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath, a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where "the old oaks gather, Serene and good and strong, And they would not sigh and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should be a club for poets ^Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars to be fought And th...

FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. Interesting information is given in "How to Become a Boxer" regarding earnings of men who have won laur els in the ring. Packy M'Farland, it is stated, was discovered to have box ing talent when working at the age of fifteen in the Chicago packing yards. Before he had reached the age of eighteen he had taken part in no few er than eighteen professional con tests, ail of which he won. He is not twenty-five years of age yet, but he has accumulated a fortune of about sixty thousand pounds. Battling Nelson, after twelve_years of fighting had a bank roll of £40|(K)0, which grew pretty rapidly during the five years which followed until he re tired. Freddie Welsh, it is conjectured, has "tucked away more than £20,000," and George Carpentier, the French j ,idol, has, though not yet twenty, put j aside somewhere near £20,000. f The gross earnings of Jack Johnson between December 26th, 1908, and July 4th, 1912, are computed to be over £100,000.
