IMPOUNDING HAT FEATHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 6 January 1914

IMPOUNDING HAT FEATHERS. "Your hat, if you please madame, we must have that aigrette" was the quaint but startling demand made by the Customs Inspectors of all ladies disembarking at New York with for- bidden plumes in their headgear. It was the first day of the new tariff, which prohibits the importation of all leathers plucked from live birds. The first victim was a Frenchwoman, dres- sed in the height of fashion and wear- ing a small velvet hat decorated with a valuable aigrette. Standing with several other passengers from the steamship Lorraine, awaiting the in- spection of her luggage, she saw that the was being scrtuinised. Then fearlessly a veteran officer, armed with his new book of instructions, stepped forward and made his demand. Mme. Bevilaqua was too startled to reply. Next moment the inspector reached forward and extricated the feather be- fore explaining the provisions of the new law. "My milliner never told me a word about the new law," ex- claimed the lady furiously...

HARD TO PLEASE. A farmer's wife who had had much trouble with her servants was accosted by one of them. "I fear I shall not be able to work much longer. I think I am going blind." "Why, ho wis that? You seem to get along pretty well with your work." "Yes, but I can no longer see any meat on my plate at dinner." The farmer's wife understood, and the next day the servants were served with very large and very nice pieces, of meat. "How nice!" the girl exclaimed.   "My sight has come back.

SO LIFELIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 6 January 1914

SO LIFELIKE. Three American artists were telling tall tales about their work. "The other day," said one, "I painted a little deal board in imitation of marble with such accuracy, that, on being thrown into the water, it immediately sank to the bottom." "Faugh!" said an- other, "Yesterday I hung my ther- mometer on the easely supporting my view of the Polar region. It fell at once twenty degrees below freezing point." "All that is nothing," re- marked the third artist, in conclusion. "My portrait, of a prominent New York millionaire was so lifelike that it had to be shaved twice a week." This story is not exactly new, but there is a smile in it still. Among the members of a working gang on a rail- road was an Irishman who claimed to be very good at figures. The boss, thinking that he would get ahead of Pat, said, "Say, Pat, how many skirts can you get out of a yard?" "That depends," answered Pat, "on whose yard you get into." "Just run upstairs, Tommy, and fetch baby's nightgown," sa...
