NATURE'S EMIGRANTS. Some Curious Habits Indulged in by Nature. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 February 1914
'l e. 15'8 EMIGRANT .I orne:.e firious Habits Indulged In by Nature, Emigration is a habit indulged in by every conceivable form of life, andL .s not, as might be lup)os1o3, conlinled :o mankind and a few )ieecies of birdn, Wherever we turn in nature we find ??s command to "move on" perpletul ally being obeyed, For Instance, certain butterflies in Europe emigrate almost annually, F'a millar garden species, such as the red admiral, painted lady, or lpeacock, often fly all the way from the South of France. In America there is a huge tawny and black and white butterfly that takes vast flights across the Pacilic, covering sometimes as much as 2000 miles in its endeavor to colonise in new lands, This is a prodigious dis. tance for so frail a creature to go, and it is not to be wondered at that sail ors have sometimes seen them falling in scorOe into the sea from shleer ox. haustion. Cattle, and some carnivorous beastu, such as the tiger and lion, emigrate very little, but have been known...

THINGS REVERSED. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 February 1914
THINGS REVEIISED, Either the Japanese people do every hilng backwards, left-handed, and up silo down, or we do. In Japan you see a man planing; he pulls the plane towards hitm. You notice a black smith at work; he pulls the bellows with his feet, while he is holding and hammering with both hands, He has several irons in the 1ire, and keeps his dinner-pot boiling with the waste (lane. The cooper holds the tub with his toes. All of them sit down when they work, ow strange! Thiles is 'an important difference between a European and an Asiatic. Why is it that we do things contrariwise to the Japanese? They call our pennmanship "crab-writing," because, they say, it is going backwards! In a Japanese stable we find the horse's flank where we look for his head. Japanese screws screw the other way. Their locks thrust to the left; ours to the right.

GET OUT! YE LOVER-SNEERERS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 February 1914
GET OUTI YE LOVER.81 (R . By an Optimist. The cheerless company of cackling croakers has got its knifo flush into the modern young man. Unlike Caesar's wife, the poor chap Is blamoworthy in everything he does, if he dares to smile, the country is im. mediately going to the dogs; if he goes about with a long face, lhe is held uDl as an awful example of the naluby. pambyisnl of the age. lie is, in short, an encumborance upon the face of the earth. Even his ambition, or lack of ambi tion, to marry is not sacred, If he shows no signs of wishing to enter the bonds of matrimony, he is forth. with denounced as a selfish brute, who is evading his moral and proper obligations to the State, and who should, therefore, be taxed. If, on the other hand, ho falls in love with a girl, and wants to make her his wife, he is everlastingly told that he Is 1an imbecileO , and that he is onl the high road to endangering, if not actu ally ruining his prospects in life. This last contention is a very favor...
