LOVE UNDER DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 18 April 1912
LOVE UNDER DIFFIOULTIES. Man is oftoen placed in an embar. ransing position, and for the time being would give all he is worth to beo out of it. The most heartrending case probably on record in explained by a note which was recently picked up in a rural post-office. It read os follows : " Dearelt -, Tihe reason I didn't uInll when you laft at me in the post office yesterday was Iecause I had a bile on my face and kan't lullf. If I lall she'll bust.

To add insult to injury, a perky little Jack in-oflice of a rate-collector recently called for taxes he had already paid. " And would you b'lieve it, Bill," he said, when relating the incident later to a friend, "the feller began to abuse me." " Did he ?" said Bill. " And what did you do 7" " Do 7? Well, I remonstri'ated with him." " You did 7? To what effect 7" " I dunno exactly ; hbt the shovel cot broke."

Oopyriglht. CENTLEMAN AND : BURGLAR. -4---- A SERIES OF EXCITING DETECTIVE STORIES. By Heath Crichton, Author of "Philip Thorn, Detective," &o CHAPTER I. THE MIDNIGHT GUEST. I have not always blesocsed the day I met Chandos, for it has led me into countless thrilling situations. But when I look back upon them asso clated as they were with his extraor dinary personality, I am hound to regard those episodes as the most adventurous parts of my life. At times I have allowed the better part of my nature to assert itself, and then I acknowledge that Chandoe was a villain. But before long I always came round to the reflection that I, certainly, ought never to he his judge. Chandos was no ordinary villain. There are things which he would never stoop to do-things which merchant princes in tile city might regard as smart and successful enterprise. I could never call him a common thief becaus be hhad nothing in common with ordinary thieves. Ho stole for the fun of the thing at first, a...

" So we could have our bath in comfort once a week-just the.same as at home I"' Most Atustralians prefer more than one showor a week, and we wonder why the Govornment never by any chance adds, a bathroom to the cot tages erected for" settlers., Many residences for State school teachers are also" short of that necessary bath room.

DO GIRLS LIKE COMPLIMENTS? [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 18 April 1912
DO GIRLS LIKIE COMPLIMENTS ? Have you over studied the signifi-' cance - of compliments. A historian might find some valuable hints in the history of soft nothings. I heard a very pretty girl the other night taking her dinner-partner to task for offering her a compliment which, according to her, " was in its fifty-seventh season at least." It had something to do with eyes and stars, and she would have none of it. I asked her afterwards if she al ways rejected base cola of the kind, and she said she did, unless it made her too angry to trouble. " When a man tells you you are as beautiful as the morning, when }ou are only rather nice-looking, with a sun-bqrnt neck, either he believes it, and then he's a fool, or he doesn't believe it, and then lie's a liar." This drastic summary seems to be rather ungrateful, so far as the fool is concerned, but I notice that the girl of to-day is extremely impatient of comnpliments which outrun her own estimate of herself. On the other hand, sel love...

COMPLTfT BHORT STORY. THE SQUID IN THE HOLD. T'rhe master diver was turning over some ol4 helmets. Long and cor rupting acqualntance with salt water had left the tinned-over copper bulbs a rusty greenish grey. " Why don't I keep them polished up ?" he said. " Because they're a great deal better the way they are. A shiny new helmet is one eternal nuisance; you never get any peace until It's coated over. When t'm wearing one I always feel as if my Ih0eal was a sort of trolling-spoon ; anyhow, most fish regard it that way. And I must say they do cer tainly seem to be trying their level beest to be caught. " I often think that with the ma Jority of sen-beasts life must he one long struggle between a natural cur i6sity and a more natural curiosity. They've all ibeen brought up to give a wide offing to things they don't understand ; hibut it's bred in their bone to want to see and keep ip with everything that's new.
