HE WAS SURPRISED. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 May 1908
HE WAS SURPRISED. It was in Tasmania that a traveller came across an old "sundowner" sit ting- in front of his cabin, over the door of which was very legibly painted, ."Ici on parle francais." A tattered, dejected-looking French man, who happened to be passing up the road, spied the- inscription, and, rushing up to the colonial, enthusiasti cally kissed him on both cheeks. "'Ere, what'r ver up to?" demanded the sundowner gruffly, "don't do that ag'in." "But you vas a countrccman of mine," exclaimed the dcHg-htcd French man, with a smile of pleasure. "Certainly not!" retorted the ctflo jiial. "But you put 'Ici on par'e francais1 over zc door," said the Frenchman, pointing to the inscription. "Well, what do you calJ it?" asked the sundowner in mild surprise. "Why, it means 'French is spoken here.' " "Well, I'm blowed !" exclaimed the Tasmanian in deep disgust. "A pain ter chap came along- here the other day, and put up ,that for me. He said it was Latin for 'God bless my happy home.' ...
IT IS NATURAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 May 1908
IT IS NATURAL. Mr. Rudyard Kipling has probably to thank his maternal grandfather , the eRv. G. B MacdonaJd, for the vein of wit which helps to make his novels so popular. As a young* man; Mr. MacdonaJld wooed and won the daughter of a very strict Methodist. The latter had very strong opinions on the question of "pro priety, and one evening he came into, the room where his daughter and Mr. Macdonald were sitting without giving judicious warning of his approach. The result was that he found the young* people occupying the one,chair! Deep iv shocked at this, he solemnly said: "Mr. Macdonald, when I courted my wife she always sat on one side of the r&lt;iom, and I sat on the other." "WeDl," replied young Macdonald, "that's what I should have done if I had courted your wife!"
