In a ilomnent of forgetfulness the oenvelope found its way into a dust-bin. In the morning the rag-plickers turned out the bin, but tossed aside he the attered envelope without inspection, Some carters hap p)ened to pass that way. They plicked up the now mud-splashed piece of p)apr, ano remarking to the other, "Perhaps there is a fortune insido!" They drew out the notes. "This is someu fool's pleasantry," they said; so, thinking that the notes wore imi. tations, they tore them to pieces and threw them aside. Two market wo. men came along shortly afterwards. With the shrewdness of their class, they recognised tho scattered pieces of paper, gathered them up, and took them to the Commissary of Police. There they wero pieced together per) fectly. ...

The War He Meant. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 February 1914

The War He Meant. One of the mlldest-mannered men on earth is John Splash, of Birming ham, though that isn't his name or the name of his town. He married Sallle Jinks, a red-headed school teacher, who thought she knew more in a minute than John did in thirty seven years and five months. As the years wont by John became aecus tomed to life with a superior woman, and. the four or five (ines he got even with her in his quiet way appeared to reconcile him to tile rest of the peor. formance, The last occasion of an "evening-up" occurred a few days ago. Mrs. Splash was displaying her ktnow. ledge of war history and cognate branches. "Wars," she was saying, "are conm1 monly known among third parties by the names of the two nations Involved, and it is a rather remarkable fact that the name of the losing nation precedes that of the conqueror. For example, we have the Franco-Prussian War, in which the French people came near being obliterated as a nation by the Prussians. Then the Chino.Japan...

COUNTRY GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 February 1914

COUNTRY GIRLS. The country girl has in many ways a decided advantage over her town. bred cousin. As a guest, the coury girl gives little or no trouble in the house, No' speclal dishes have to be pray pared to coax a captious appetite, for she enjoys with a healthy relish every. thing that is set before her. At break. fast she is always fresh and amiable, while the town girl is sleepily toying with a morsel of toast. , From a man's point of view a counr try cousin possesses many admirable traits which he devoutly wishes the town-bred girl would emulate. In the Grst place, she can don her walking attire and be ready to accompany him for a stroll before tile girl from the city would have even decided which hat she would wear for the occasion, The best type of country girl makes a splendid wife, She is not used to being pampered in every little whim, and the man who wins her has a wife who will face any trouble with him, be Lt great or small.

BEN JONSON AND JONATHAN WILD [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 February 1914

BEN JONSON AND JONATHAN WILD An interesting feature in connection with the new Middlesex Gulldhall at Westminster, opened last December by Prince Arthur of Connaught, is that some valuable county records were brought back into safe keeping in the new building, One of these tells the strange story of how Ben Jonson jus' managed to escape the capital penalty Apparently in 1585 ho fought a duel with a fellow-actor named Spencer and killed him, ioe escaped the gallows, but underwent a brief term of Impri sonment, in the course of which he adopted the Catholic faith "on trust," but abjured it 12 years litter. There are also many references in the records to Jonathan Wild. There's a groat' art in accepting things as they are, and making the best of them, A pleasant way of taking u1n pleasant things will carry one success fully over many a hard placo.
