MUTUAL FORGETFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902

MUTUAL FORGE TFULNESS. A good joke is told of a proaunc.ii'; Leeds man who positively made tiaj art of meanness. When travelling, as he often did, iia would keep the railway servants busi y attending to tbe luggage, and then pur posely defer the much-deserved tip till starting of tho traiu made its payment impossible. On a certain morning, however, when about to travel to London by the express, he executed this little trick once too often on the same man. ' Dear, dear ! I am so. sorry,' he said, as tho train gave a lurch forward. ' I quite forgot to get change.' ' And I am rale sorry too, sir,' was the porter's reply. ' I quite forgot about the broon portmanty of yours ; it is lying on the platform yet.' Just then the train pulled ont, and didn't stop till it reached King's CroRS.

THE BITER BIT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902

THE BITER BIT. Tho members of a certain WeBt End club object to hats, and one of the rules | is that if anyone enters with a hat the other members are at liberty to smash the offending 'chapeau.' One evening, a merchant named Monk — inadvertently entered the, club house wearing a new and splendid hat. Not until he was near the door of the ciuDroom aia lie remember the rule in question. So he entered an adjoining kitchen, and requested Bridget, tho cook, to keep his hat fer him. She readily promised to do so, and Mr Monk entered ihe clubroom bareheaded, with feigned unconoern, as if he had been in before that evening. But a member named Baker, who had suffered at Monk's hands, ? emelled a mice,' and stopped out to boo where Monk's hat was. He found ; it in ihe kitchen, put it on, and thus returned to ihe clubroom. Moak and others rushed towards him and smashed the offensive object over his sconce. Baker sorrowfully took it off, amidst tho most uproarious laughter of Monk aud others, ...

SELECTING GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902

SELECTING GOOD COWS. 1 One cannot fail to recognise that it is necessary to have good cows in order to secure a profit in dairying. Cows are selected and maintained in many dairy herdB on the judgement of the dairyman. If a cow pleases a man he retains her until her years of usefulness are over. : He doee not inquire e.bout her record, as - no records are generally kept. It does ' not always occur to the mind of the ^ dairyman that there may be a great dif ference in the individual merit of the herd, a difference bo great that some of * them will only yie d a profit and that others of them may be kept at a loss, and even if such a matter presents itself to the mind of the dairyman there are many who do not care to take the trouble to weigh and test the milk of each cow in order to determine the matter. In some cases a record has been kept, and the variation of the individuality of the cows shows that some were kept at a money loss and others at a profit. . i i AlmoBt without excepti...

POETRY WISHES. I'd like to be a boy again, Without a woe or care; With freckles scattered on my face, And hayseeds in my hair. I'd like to rise at foot o'«lock ? And do a hundred chorea, And saw tbe wood, and feed the hogs, And lock the stable doers ; End herd the hens, and watch tbe beeB, . And take the mules to drink : And teach the turkeys how to swim. So they will not sink ; And milk a hundred cows, And bring in wood to barn, And stand ont in the sun all day. And chum, and churn, and churn ; And wear my brother' is cast-off clothes, And walk four miles to school, And get a licking every day For breaking some old rule ; And then get home again at night, And do the chores once more, And zni)k the cows, and feed the hogs, And curry muleB a score ; And then crawl wearily upstairs, . And seek my little bed, And hear dad Bay, ' That worthless boy, He doesn't earn his bread.' I'd like to be a boy again, A boy has so much fun ; His life iB ju t - round of mirth, From rise t : -? t v.n. ...

THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 23 May 1902

THE LAKE ISLE OF 1NNISFREE. I will arise and no now, and go to lnnis free, And a small cabin buildJ there, of clay and wattles made ; Nine bean rows will I hare there, a hive for the honey bee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall hare some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the oricket sings ! There midnight is all a glimmer, and soon a purple glot/, And evening full of linnets' wings. I will arise and go now, for alwayB night and day I hear lake water lapping with low aonnds by the shore ; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in tbe deep heart's core.
