A NEW BOY WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 2 June 1915

A NEW BOY WANTED. News editors and sub-editors are having a busy time in the big newspaper offices. With an un ending chain of cables pouringiin on them and a more than ever stringent need to cut down and condense local news from space considerations, they are hard put to.it. In one office there were implicit instructions to the copy boys, office boys, passage boys and other urchins to absolutely forbid women from mounting the stairs that lead to the editorial sanctum—but it has been a hard task. Mothers of soldiers sim ply pour in for news. " I can't keep the visitors'from coming up," at last said an office boy to the editor. "When I say you're out they don't believe me. They say they must see you." "Well," said the editor, "I don't care if you ' cheek' them, but I must have quietness." That afternoon there called at the office a lady. She wanted to see the editor, but the boy as sured her that it was impossible. "But I must see him!" she persisted. "I'm his wife !" "That's what th...

SOME OBJECTION TO INCUBATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 2 June 1915

SOME OBJECTION TO INCUBATORS. One of the reasons urged against the use of incubators is that they do not hatch so large a percentage of chickens as does a hen. Of course, this sometimes happens—it is no use saying it does not. In many instances apparently strong and virile eggs have been placed in an incuba tor, and, notwithstanding the fact that the utmost care and at tention have been bestowed upon the working of the machine,very few chickens, sometimes none at all, have made their appearance, most to the disgust and pecuni ary loss of the operator. Invari ably, in a case of this descrip tion, blame has been heaped upon the artificial method of hatching as a whole, and no amount of ar gument to the contrary will ever cause the owner to change his views in regard to incubators. Sometimes, of course, it is the machine, and the machine alone, that is to blame, but more often than not it is due to some fault in the management of the parent stock or in the actual running of the incubat...

CRISP TOAST. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 2 June 1915

CRISP TOAST. A magazine has been collect ing some witty andl amusing toasts given at banquets. Here are some:— A rather cynical toast ran thus: Woman—she requires no eulogy ; she speaks for herself." A gallant young man, under the- same festal circumstances, referred to one member of the sex he eulogised as "a delectable -dear, so sweet that honey would blush in her presence, and mo lasses stand appalled." . At the marriage supper of a •deaf and dumb couple one guest, in the speech of the evening, wished them "unspeakable .bliss." A writer of comedies was /given a banquet in honor of his latest work, at which a jovial . guest gave the toast—" The au thor's very good health ! May he ! live to be as old as his jokes." At another gathering were toasted "The Bench and the Bar ; if it were not for the bar. there would be little use for the ■ bench." . As pithy was the following \ *Pa8t, proposed at a shoemakers f dinner :—May we have all the women in the country to shoe, Wo all the men t...

The joy | which the Commonwealth knows j to-day is a stern one, dashed with j not a little bitterness, for, firmly ( though we may hold that it is , incomparably better to die nobly , than to live ignobly, we would be j less than human if we did not , feel the passing of those who fall ; fighting for freedom.
