NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
NELSON'S CHAPLAIN. The "Death of Nelson is a scene well known to all-the dimly-lighted cock pit, the dying hero, and Captain Har dy listening to his Admiral's last or ders. On the other side is a stooping figure in black, less familiar, yet equally cherished by the great sailor Dr. Scott, his secretary and chaplain. A few years ago, some of the oldest inhabitants of Southminster (Essex) could still remember the "owd parson," and whose "Nelson relics" may still be seen in the church vestry. Dr. Scott was a man of the world, intelligent, tactful, and a wonderful linguist, who had spent half his life afloat, and was highly esteemed by the Admiral. One of Nelson's theories was that every scrap of paper was worthy of study, that no man, put pen to paper without betraying something of his real knowledge or real intentions. He would thus keep Scott in the cabin of the Vic tory reading foreign gazettes, nei'spap ers, letters, and despatches in every lan guage till exhausted nature compelled...
HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
HOBBIES GIVE ME THE PIP Hobbyitis is worse than appendi citis, neuritis, or any other "itis." i: These can be cured, but hobbyitis is a a malady beyond the surgeon's knife a or the doctor's medicine. It is ex- o cessive inflammation of the possessive s faculty. e It grips you, grows on you, over you J and in you, until life is a burden to r yourself and others. It creates sel- a fishness, wastes one's life, ruins one's a pocket, and, after all, -what has been d achieved? Simply this; that some ob- c jects which before were scattered have i been painfull3 -collected in a heap. Yet parents are seductively urged by y certain scribes to see that their chil- ii dren have a hobby. Are the writers i stamp dealers, fretwork tool makers, t rabbit and guinea-pig dealers? t You- try hard to prevent your child € catching hobbyitis, knowing not only that prevention is better than cure, but that there is no cure. Then he catches it through the "Lad's Weekly,' or .even, alas l your own favorite pe...
What a Disappointment. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
What a Disappointment. "Sure, Casey was a fine fellow." "He was that: A fine fellow, Casey." "And-a cheerful man." "A cheerful man was Casey-the cheerfulest man I ever knew." "Casey was a geneirous man, too." "Generous, you say? Well, I don't know so much about that. Did Casey ever buy you anything?" "Well, nearly. One day he came in to the Blue Boar's barroom, wliere me and- my friends were drinking, and he said to us: 'Well, men, what are we g.e ing to here-rain or snow?" The man who is a failure at inventing excuses has no right to get married.
Mistaken Idenity. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
,t Mistaken Idenity. e The death of Sir John Batty Tuke, 1- the great mental specialist, recalls a L- story lie was fond of telling against himself. Some repairs were in progress at the d private asylum run by Sir John and the laborers engaged on the work had r- been warned that on no account were [1 they to talk to any of the patients. One morning, Sir John himself went to see how the workmen were gettinig on, and he made one or two sugges tions to the foreman. All lie got was da stony stare Sir John repeated his t remarks, and again the man treated them with silent contempt. r Sir John, .naturally enough, lost his temper, and asked the man what he mean by such conduct. u "Awa' wi' ye, de delirious ould dev .- ill" he retorted. "I canna be bothered s wi' ye. 'But I n sorry for ye a' the 1- same." 1- Sir John found he had been mistaken for one. of his own patients!
His First Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
His First Mistake. One of the first tasks set the new l curate who was handicapped by youth I and inexperience was to investigate the bona fides of a "widow woman" who had applied to the church for help. He departed nervously on his errand 1 and knocked-as ill-luck would have it I k-at the wrong dooi. "How long has your poor husband 1 been dead, my. good woman? What number of children have' you P Are any of them working? If so, what ] amount of money are they earning al together?" were the questions he fir s ed, like a shot, at the slatternly wo man who answered his summons. "I presume I am addressing Mrs. Har riet Smith ?" he added, noticing with l alarm that she looked angry. "No, you ain't," answered the wo e man, snappishly. "My name is Se lina Jackson, my bairns go to school, S and my 'usband's dloin' what is neces sary to a plateful of rump steak and mnions at this very moment. Would e you like to know anything else? Where I was born ? When I was chris e tened? At what age I s...

The German Minister of the Navy, speaking in the Reichstag, declared that the proportion of sixteen to ten battleships as set r by, Great Brttain was acceptable but the naval holiday idea could not be realized.

THE CHAMPION FOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
THE CHAMPION FOOL. There's fools of many kinds; there's fools That think they know it all; There's fools that scowl at others when They cross their toes and fall; There's fools who think that when they're hurt All other folks should howl; There's fools who think the sun's got lost Each time the weather's foul. But there's one kind of fool that's worse Than all the rest-excuse Me from the fool who boasts what he Would do if he could only be In someone else's shoes. There's fools who go and drown them selves When girls say "No'-they s'pose They couldn't learn to love again They're small loss, goodness knows l There's fools who think what they be lieve Is all that's true; there's some Who think that their digestion's bad The old world's end has come; We'll have to bear with such as these, I think-but please" excuse Me fro?n the fool who tells how he Would rise if lie could only be In someone else's shoes.

"A GRATE VICKTERY." [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 6 February 1914
"A GRATE VICKTERY." A Wiltshire farmer is just at present rather sore over the loss of some fine apples. It is not, perhaps, the actual value of the fruit which annoys him so much but the circumstances under which itwas purloined. He was the owner of two adjoining orchards, and was a terror to all the local juveniles who possessed a fond ness for fruit acquired by stealth. Looking from one orchard to an other on a recent afternoon, he dis cerned a small boy shinning down a tree, laden with fruit. He shouted a warning in the direction of a pair of legs hanging from a. branch laden with a splendid crop of codlins, and made off. But the farmer was too speedy for the other raider. "Copped yer this time, you young varmint," he announced. "Come down 'ere." There was no reply. "'Ear what I say? You're goin' to get a 'iding .if I stop 'ere all night." Again no answer was vouchsafed. The farmer sat down on the grass, lit his pipe, and waited half-an-hour. Then somebody brought him a note whi...
