ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. By One Who Has Suffered, I was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address I was to give to the Try Excelsior Class for Boys Only that evening. I had nearly hit on a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, who was absorbed in reading "The Marchioness of ,the Mill" on an ad joining sent. Tlhe infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro cooded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "Delightful child," he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from mo to the child. I started. Was this infant to he forced upon me? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable," said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a Great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after?? noon he has said nothing but 'Nic...

What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car ringe were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in tile corner. He had been all over tile world several tnimes, apparently, and velling among cannibal tribes. One evening, when we camped, I had strolled off while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock In front of me I saw the hleads of three natives who were watching me. What wasl I do do? My gun was at tile camp. To turn llback mea:lt having Iears through mle. In a nloment I secdded. Close by were some stones. Pretending l dildn't see the niggers, I bent dlown as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one fountl its (((ark, andl the three natives dropped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." t'lhenc the red-faced man opposite, who hIlad been listening carefully, chimed in: "An' wot did yer 'ave, guv'nor--a cigar or a coco...

The history of tile past and present, my sisters, is colored crimson with the deeds and misdeeds of Man, tlhe Monster. He stays out late and collles home early. IHe breaks open the children's money-boxes and buys Wild Woodbines with tllelr dclear little far thlngs. In the olden days lie would neglect his wife while lie went to the tourney; now he neglects her while he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree.

ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 9 April 1914
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. A great deal of nonsense, as it seems to me, is often talked about the danger of allosling boys who are dell cate or suffer from some physical In trmity to face the supposed rigors of public school life. It is supposed In nany quarters that a weakly boy, at one of the big schools, has his life 'adtle a burdlen to him by his conlpan lons, and runs tile risk of ha'inig hiis hcalth completely shattered. If the school is carefully chlosent anll is one in which there is anything approach ing a decent tone, I cannot help thinking that the opposite of tills is ulmost invariably tile case. Ioys hare mlore natulral good-feel ing than they are somnctiles given credit for. and in a good school the .greatest considerationi is shown by the boys for a coulupanion who suffers fromt some lphysical dlisabllity. More over, ithe watchful care which a boy receir-es at school (ipartlicuilarly if tile nmedlical authorities have been warned beforehand), coupled with the ...
