Well! [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914
Well! A good story is being told of the wife of a certain famous financier. The lady is a very late riser, and the oth er morning she was in her bathroom— a magnificent one it is, they say, with silver hot and cold water-taps, mosaic flooring, and all the rest of it. Hear ing a most curious noise in the next room, she rang for her maid—a simple little country girl, whom she had re cently picked up in the neighborhood —and asked for the cause of the mys terious sounds. "Ah, madam, it was a friend of mas ter's who wished to see you. I told him you were not to he seen " -Well?" "He would not believe me, madam; so I told him to look through the key hole, and he said I was quite right;; he would call again!" ."Not long ago, while I was station ed la Fyzabad," relates a sergeant major in an army paper, "a native called John James, who had just learn ed the artmaking bread in Euro pean style, sought my ssistance in ad vertising his business. Not being an expert in that line, 1 simply told ...

Improving His Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914
Improving His Mind. (Tlie gentleman who bad dined at his club arrived home in the small hours, and wavering into the library, adjusted the light and, picking up a iheavy tome, settled himself for a studious liour. Presently he felt, rather than saw, his wife standing at the door; he exaggerated his attitude of close attention to his volume. 'Do you know that it's past four o'clock, James?" she addressed him. "You'd better put out the light and come to bed." "Now, m' dear," he said impatient ly, "g* 'way, I'm studying—improving my min'. G' 'way." She stood for a moment eyeing him intently. "Please—please close up that suit-case and come to bed," 6he implored.
DELIVERED SPEECH BY TELEPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914
DELIVERED SPEECH BY TELEPHONE. President Wilson has created a pre cedent in speech-making which will probably be imitated by future Presi dents and prominent politicians, who, through lack of time for travelling, are unable to fulfil many engagements. The President had promised to address the Rochester Chamber of Commerce at the members' annual banquet which was held recently, but being unable to leave Washington he arranged to deliver his address by telephone. Accordingly special ar rangements were made by the tele phone companies at Washington and Rochester, New York, and each of the three hundred diners at the banquet was provided with a headpiece re ceiver. About 800 miles away in the White House the President stepped to a specially fitted-up telephone in his private office and delivered his ad dress, which was clearly heard by all present. The President himself had a headpiece receiver, and was able to listen to the cheers which greeted his address, and to the vote of thanks an...

THE REPORTER—AN ASSIGN MENT. The fifth house from the corner in this row— Little black tents against the night sky's indigo. Beside the door I flashed a match to find The number right—and sudden blauk ness took my mind! I hesitated, peering from the gloom 'Beneath the shade into the yellow lighted room, Curious justly, in my errand's name: And then I blamed myself, though I ■ was not to blame. A woman sat beside a table spread For one, but suppertime was hours past; her head .Bent low for listening, while at her , thighs A sleepy child was frowning, gouging fists in eyes. 'The woman stirred; I saw her young, worn face. She glanced, impatient, puzzled, at the empty place. I gulped and knocked. God knows the words I said! I asked her, somehow, if she knew that he was dead! —Paul Scott Mowrer in January "Smart Set."
AIRMAN'S ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914
AIRMAN'S ROMANCE. The story of M. Chanteloup, the famous French, "looping airman," who recently gave demonstrations at Hen don, is a most romantic one. He was born at Beaune in 1890, and started work as a farm laborer at 8/4 a week, but his ambition had always been in the direction of motors and mechan ism. In 1909 he passed his tests for a chauffeur's licence, and drove a taxi cab at Nantes for two years. After careful saving he managed to raise about £75, his tuition fee, and then went through the usual course at the Caudron school at Crotoy, where he passed the Aero Club tests for his pilot's certificate in July, 1911. In October of that year he commenced his military service as a sapper-avia tor. It was during his military service that Chanteloup created a sensation in France, on September 6 last, by being the first aviator to "loop the loop" and fly upside-down, Pegoud not having accomplished this feat until a fortnight afterwards. His daring ex periments earned for him fifteen...

HIS STENOGRAPHER. As He Dictates to Her. Does she love you? Well, I wonder— Married twenty years, they say! You, so bald and fat and funny, Grubbing like a mole for money! Guess she likes to spend the plunder— Gee—she knows the way! She's a grand one — Lord, what dresses! Handsome, too, proud as a queen— With her doings in the papers, Dinners, dances, all the capers, Likes to lead the show, my guess is! You're the gold machine!

You're a savage money maker— Good to her. though, sure—and me. Kind old pirate! What in thunder Does she think of you, I wonder? What neat stories do you take her— So she will not see? —Harriet Monroe in January "Smart Set."

Her Way of Telling Him. A young ploughman and his neigh bor servant lass were going home one night from the Dumfries Fair. When about a mile on the road he said "to her, "Jenny, I wad kiss ye, but I'm feart ye wadna let me." No answer. Another mile on the road he agaiii said, "Jenny, I wad kiss ye, but I'm feart ye wadna let me." No answer. When they were getting near home, for the third time he said—"Jenny, I wad kiss ye, but I'm feart ye wadna let me." "Rab," said she, "dae ye min' yesterday I couldna lift yon bag of potatties intae the cairt, an' ye lilted them?" "Ay," said Rab. "Well, dash ye, ye're far stronger than me!" A retired naval officer became the rector of a country parish. His par ishioners, wishing to give him a sur prise, subscribed amongst themselves and bought a flag for the church tower. Directly the old gentleman saw it he flew into a violent rage, and ordered it to be taken down at once. One of his parishioners asked him why he did not like it. "Allow that flag...

Trumped. "I wish I had never learned to play cards!" exclaimed a man who had been unfortunate at the game. "You mean you wish you had learn ed, don't you?" was his wife's sarcas tic rejoinder. At a club meeting held in a public house in a small village a discussion took place as to whether a hard or soft substance would last the longer. The debate continued for some, time, until one man spoke up and said:—^ "Now, men, you are all mistaken, as 1' can easily prove. When me and my wife married she had as good a set of teeth as any woman could have now she hasn't got one, and her tongue is as good as ever."; When little Doris climbed up to her father's knee it was quite ob vious that some deep problem was troubling her mind. Presently she unburdened herself of the moment ous question. "Papa," she asked, "was it a very .wise person who said, 'The good die young'?" ' "Yes," replied the father. "I sup pose he must have been very, very wise." ! "Well,": said the child, after medi tating for...

"What made you throw your cigar there?" said the old gentleman, an grily. "See how unsightly it is on the lovely grass." c "That surely won't do any harm," said the other, "for nobody would no tice a little thing like that." "My dear fellow," solemnly replied .the old grumbler, "it's just little things like these that constitute tidi ness, and tidiness is half the com fort of life." His friend said no more for a time, and, in a few moments he arose hur riedly, disappeared, and was absent ftr a full twenty minutes.

Intention Only-Credited. A fashionably-dressed young man strolled into a small Scottish church while service was being held. TJhe time for the collection came round, and, wishing to draw attention to him self, he flung his penny (as he thought) down on the plate with a crash. Immediately after so doing he discovered, to his great dismay, he had given half-a-crown in mistake. He at once got up and followed the old sexton, and asked to be allowed to get back his money. The old man shook his head and said—"Na, na; I canna gie it back to ye. Ye gied it to the Lord." The young man argued for some time, and at last gave it up and ex claimed impatiently—"Well, I suppose I'll get credit for it in heaven." "Na, na," replied the old man, "ye'll only get credit for the penny."
