REAL THING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
REAL THING. A taxi-driver charged ..with using violent language, protested that the complainant — a woman — was 'no lidy.' ? . V\ ? 'Indeed,' said the magistrate. - 'I wonder if you know a lady when you see one.' ? ' Course I do,' answered the driver,' . indignantly. 'Why, only the other day I saw one. She gave me a. pound note ' for a shilling fare, an' walked away. .' 'Ere, mum,' I says, 'what about your change?' 'Don't be a ^blinking fool,' says she; 'keep it an' get drunk enough to kiss your mother-in-law.'' 'Now,' he ended; triumphantly, 'that's what I calls a real lidy!' \ 'I say— I'm beginning to lose my memory. Whatever shall I do?' 'Go round to all your pals right away, and borrow as much money as you can lay hands on!' The motoring offender was asked his name by the country noliceman' 'John Smith,' he said. 'No, your real name,' snapped the constable, who had been caught the day before. 'Well, put me down 'as William Shakespeare.' ' . 'That's better. You can't fool me with...
"GOING ONE BETTER." [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
'GOING ONE BETTER.' By Uncle Joe. 'My father is a plumber; my elder brother is a plumber, and my father wants me to be a plumber, too; my mother backs him up. She says it is well to have . a good trade, and that while other meri .are unemployed, my dad and brother have never been out of work, even though at times work has been slack. But' I hate the idea. I have a splendid chance of winning a scholarship 'and then studying for the Civil Service. I don't think I ought to be forced into a line of life which I detest. Do you? — M.R-.' I sometimes hear of families who, for generations, have been lamplight ers; other -vyho have all been rat catchers. It reminds me of the caste system in India; once a sweeper, al ways a sweeper, from generation to generation, with no possible' hope of getting out of the rut. Far be it' from me to decry or be little any handicraft; and plumbing, when done in a skilful and scientific way, is a technically difficult occupa tion; certainly .orie in. which the...
DAY OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
. DAY OUT. The hunting novice had been loaned a poor-spirited horse. At the end of the day he returned limping and dishevelled, and said bit terly to the* owner: 'Don't tell me again about horses being intelligent. We came to 6 nasty jumps to-day and this confounded beast let me do every one alone.' A Londoner on a fishing holiday in Ireland dropped a bad brick in County Tipperary. He hired a car and the driver pointed out the landmarks. Eventually they came in sight of a stretch of water. 'That's the Suir, sir,' the man said. 'You surprise me,' said the visitor. 'I 'thought it was a river.' 'I'm sorry; but I never speak unless I've really something to say.' 'Will you marry me?' 'You' haven't said ' anything for twenty minutes, Miss Grey.' 'The boss offered me an interest in the business to-day. 'He did?' 'Yes. He said that if 1^ can't take an interest pretty soon he'll sack .me.' 'Uncle, don't you think it would be I rather foolish for me to marry a girl] who was intellectually my....

Shipping Subsidies THE EXPORTER'S VIEWPOINT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
Shipping Subsidies THE EXPORTER'S VIEWPOINT. Commenting last week oh the plea of the Hon. Alexander Shaw, chair man and managing director of the P. and O. Company, for consideration of the plight of British shipping in its competition with subsidised foreign shipping, Mr H. G. Co?ombie, one of the largest exporters of apples and pears- from Australia, pointed out that under an agreement entered into between 23 shipping companies and Australian exporters, a large measure of protection was already afforded British shipping. This pro tection, whilst beneficial to the companies, was not so beneficial to exporters of primary products' in general, and to the fruit exporters in particular, whose overseas freight payments amounted to approximately £1,000,000 a year. While other ex porters had recently received certain concessions, none had been received by the fruit interests, with the ex ception of a reduction of 2d a case for June shipments, and 3d a case for July shipments, which conces ...

THE ART OF LISTENING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 8 February 1934
THE ART OF LISTENING. We cannot all have the enviable dis tinction of being 'a good talker.' To be able to talk well. one must have a good fund of knowledge upon a great variety of things, and have a real gift of self-expression. But we can all cultivate the art of being good listeners. Often you will notice that the most popular people are not only the good conversational ists, but those who just quietly sit arid listen in a sympathetic manner. Men might be amused by the briliant girl whose talk is always sparkling and witty, but they like to shine in their talk themselves, and appreciate the woman who can arid does listen. There is, however, a definite art in listening, and it calls for concentra tion. Have you ever been talking to a person — telling them something per haps that you do not talk easily about — and- discovered that their attention was wandering, or, at any rate, their eyes were wandering round the room? As a result you felt really hurt and snubbed, and the conversat...

THE GAY BANDIT OF THE BORDER . A Thrilling Romance of the Mexican Border Country. By TOM GILL. (Published by Special Arrangement.) [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] .CHAPTER XIX. 'Your gold I do not greatly need,' ! the young Mexican answered. 'I will kill El Coyote for the joy of it. Instead I shall claim — what should I claim?' He. smiled at the girl before him. 'Should it be the love of our cousin Adela?' Morales's stiff lips also smiled, but ; a little sadly. 'If that were in my power to give, I should give it.' - 'But that will never be in your , power to give away, will it, dear?' the girl asked. She patted his thin band. 'You must keep all the love I give you, ungracious one, not offer it to every hot-headed boy.'« . Ted broke the silence. 'Why are you so bitter against this border thief? After all, there have been other ban dits and cattle rustlers who have come and gone.'
