BOSTONIAN CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 July 1914

BOSTONIAN CULTURE. The following are two good stories on a somewhat old subject—the Bos tonian's reputation for superior cul ture:— Standing In the dock was a battered specimen of humanity, on whose face, in spite of signs o£ a dissipated life, could be seen faint traces of happier and purer flays. "Where are you from?" he was ask ed. "From Bostoi-..'-' •'Yours is indeed a sad fall," contin ucd the magistrate. "And yet you don't seem to thoroughly realise how low you have sunk." The prisoner started as though ■struck by a sudden blow. "Your honor does me an Injustice!" he exclaimed. "The disgrace of arrest lor drunkenness, the mortification of being thrown into a noisome dungeon, the publicity and humiliation of trial in a crowded and dingy court-room— all this I can endure; but to be sen tenced by a police magistrate who splits his infinitives, that is Indeed more than I can bear!"

A Coachman Worth Having. Lord Mansfield told the following anecdote about himself from the bench:— He had turned oft his coachman for certain acts of peculation, not uncoro raon in this class of person. The fol low begged his lordship to give him a character. What kind of character can I give you?" said his lordship. "Oh, my lord, any character your lordship chooses to give me I shal' most thankfully accept." His lordship accordingly sat dowt and wrote the following:— (i "The bearer, William , ha. served me three years in the capa city of coachman. He is an able and competent driver, and a verj sober man. I discharged him be cause he cheated me. (Signed) Mansfield." John thanked his lordship, an' walked oft. A few mornings after wards, when his lordship was going through his lobby to step into his coach for Westminster Hall, a man in a very handsome and exquisite livery, made him a low bow. To his surprise he recognised his old coachman. "Why, John," said his lordship, "you seem to ...

Did His Best. James, the pompous new butler, who would rather have died than dis obey orders, was Instructed by his mistress to bring everything into the drawing-room on a salver. A visitor called one day with a large and rather ferocious-looliing Newfoundland dog, which was left outside. When thn visitor was about to go, however, his hostess wished to see the dog, so she rang the bell and told the obsequious James to bring him in. Somo minutes passed and James did not appear. But suddenly the sounds of angry growls, snarls, and barks were heard, so the bell was rung again.

The Nillaticootie Weir. At the Tungamah Water Trust meeting, the Chairman (Com. Fell) reported the result of deputation re Nillahcootie weir. While the Minister had promised to place their request before the Cabinet, it <vas felt that the work would not he undertake on najional lines, although it was pointed out that of many other national schemes hitherto carried out this Trust had not got its fair elnre. They should await the decision of the Govern ment, and if it was avers1), they should hold public meetings throughout the Trust's area, which was the n&xt beBt way of stirring up the authorities. Com. Deagm was of opinion that everything had been fixed up in the Department before the visit of the deputation. The people should not sit down even if the Govern ment was again°t them just now. He quite agreed that sustained agitation was desirable, of a similar chiracter as that which surrounded the tramway agitation. Eventually, the Chairman moved that Mi. Carlisle,...

Tuggamah Mechanics Hall Ablaze. THE LIBRARY SERIOUSLY DAMAGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 July 1914

Tuggamah Mechanics Hall Ablaze. the library seriously damaged. Slothful risers were aroused last Saturday morning, about seven o'clock, by a warning of the fire bell. A dense volume of smoke was quickly observed issuing from the library room of ihe Mechanics Institute. The alarm originated from Mr. P. C. Phillips, who resides next door. The brigade arrived with commendable promptitude, but there was a serious hitch, in their wonted alacrity, aud had the building been a wooden one the fkmes would have wrought far greater destruction before being quenched. Two lengths of hose at first annexed to the hydraut proved to be faulty aud " blew out," thus considerable minimising the nres sure of the water. The muddy compound which first oozed through the hose was disgraceful, and causes one to wonder who is responsible for the flushing of the "dead ends." The fllines were quickly suppressed wben new lengths of hose were attached to the source of supply, but considerable damage had been done ...

How to Encourage Farming. TO THE PRIMARY PRODUCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 17 July 1914

How to Encourage Farming. TO THE PRIMARY PRO DUCER. Do you know that the country interests are being sacrificed to those of the metropolis, and if so, do you not think some steps ought to be taken to counteract the poli tical influence of the people of Melbourne? Action should b taken at once, as every month's . delay will result in the political interests of the centre becoming relatively stronger and more difli cult to overcome. The: Government Year Book shows that in the census decade which ended in 1911, this State only increased its population by 10 per cent. Unsatisfactory as is this small increase when'considered as a whole, it is very much worse when considered in detail. The County of Bourke alone secured an Increase of 99,878, and the other 36 counties only 11,808, whilst the shipping populaliou increased by 2524 ; increase for whole State 114,210. These figures reveal a most un healthy condition of' affairs, and should receive the immediate atten tion ofall who wish the S...
