Some Narrow Escapes. A MISUNDERSTANDING AT SMITH'S. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

'1 § Some Narrow Escapes. § 1^^ 6y Adam Bachelor. A MISUNDERSTANDING AT SMITH'S. •People will say I am abominably selfish. Possibly I am. You may have noticed, too, how fierce people are in fondemuing the selfish ness of others when it runs counter to their own selfishness. I may as well admit it. I am particularly attract ve to women. I really don't know why. No one has credited me with an excess of good looks, I haven't the figure of a gladia tor, nor sunny locks, crisp curling, nor a win ning smile, nor nice kind eves; and I am not financially blessed above men. I can't keep motor cars. Having none of the conspicuous advantages of the popular hero, why do women, pursue me with the relentless energy of the tigress in quest of prey ? Friends tell me I look like a marrying man. Then my looks belie me. I am not a marrying man, and never have been, and have no inten tion of seeking notoriety as a record - breaker in that particular sphere of athletics. It has been hinted to me that I ...

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

A TRUE STORY. Writing from Bamawn, Vic., Mr. William John Youill,' late of Harveytown, Eaglehawk, Vic., says : "In regard to the statement I gave you some years ago as to my cure of kidney com plaint, I may say that a "short time since I had occasion to be medically examined, and was en tirely free from any complaint." Mr. (Youill's original statement was as follows : "I feel it a duty I owe t-o you and to suffering humanity to send you this letter, in the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as I was from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease of the kidneys, may take courage and learn from my experience to adopt .the same method of treat ment that I did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, and, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem to some a remarkable statement to make, hut it can he substantiated by anyone who will take the trouble to enquire for themselves from me or my friends who were with me at the time. Despite all the skill and ...

THE PEAYGOER PRINCESS'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

By "Petor Qainoo." PRINCESS'S THEATRE. "The Soldier's Wedding," produced' at the Princess's last Saturday night, is one of the latest Melville melodramas,, and has achieved quite a considerable success in Great Britain. It is the usual story of -right and wrong, in terspersed with more or less irrelevant comic relief, and containing the inevitable villain and villainess winning prosperity by degraded methods, and coming to a violent' and unhappy end. The lady is, perhaps, • more than a usually vigorous example of feminine turpitude. Havin, married an aged colonel for the. pleasure ot fingering his. bank account, she thinks nothing of robbing him right arid leffc,- and finally shoot ing him in the head. Also,, she is quite indif ferent to the fact that one of her unpleasant little plots involves the good name of Jack Brown, the curly-headed hero of the play. Jack early wins the recognition of the "gods" by his amazing philanthropy in buying up the homestead of an ancient farmer (who ...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

NOTES. Win or lose, it is always a great pleasure to visit the famous Armadale Club. 'Personally, I have had many games there, and have never left, and never huard anyone else lea zing, with a complaint on his l.'ps. The green on Saturday was what a green should be. It was prepared. This last word covers much, lor there are many greens that' aro "prepared" in q:iite another sense. I don't mean to say that, there are "faked" greens, but one wants to play at Armadale to understand what it means by—"Give a man good tools, and he will give you good workmanship." Not only the green, but the arrangements, and this word ■ also covers much. Fc was a fastidious man indeed who could find fauJt of any kind with Armadale on Saturday, and I don't mean to say that Armadale stands alone—not at all To a bowler who knows his business there aro greens that are simply "greens," and nothing- more. To call them playing surfaces would be too absurd. The V.ii.A. does the best with the limited supply at it...

Like the enticing carrot hung before the donkey, this .is always "in the future," and in the happy meantime the company rakes in the shekels to a lively tune, whereat its shareholders ' rejoice greatly, no doubt.

SPORTING Turf Flotsam and Jetsam. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 29 January 1914

TiarS Flotsam as&d Jetsam. By "Omsura." Top-weights frequently shine out inbigsprini, events, but the record of heaviiy-nurdened can didates in the Newmarket Handicap is anything but a brilliant one. In the forty contests for the rich dash up the Flemington .straight only four winners have come'from the :).0 division. These were Soultline (9.11), Pendant (9.7), Fortuna tus (9.2), and Bungebah (9.3). In his day Soult line repiesented a class on his own amongst sprinters, yet he only beak a moderate in Dun oily (6.13) by half-a-ner;k jr. the Newmarket.. Bungebah romped home with 9.3 in a field of thirty-five, yet with 10.4 Ibe next year and lu.l a season later he failed badly. In i901 Fulmi nate (9.10) and Advance (9.11) were well fan cied, but they had to be content with minor places to Wakeful (7.6). The later form of this mare showed what a'rare gift this Lace was for the daughter of Trenton. Paul Pry earned 10.7 that year, and was not in the first, ten at the judge. Two ye...
