PACF/rr/E. What would you cull a young physician?— A pntiont uvuitcr. The law can never make a man honest ; it cau only lTiiiko him very uncomfortable wlicu lie is dishonest. Tlio degree of A.B., when applied to a young-lady graduate, means " After Bache lors." It implies that they aro qualified to •catch and tame animals of that species. If you have n light with a fellow about a girl, maleo it a point to got walloped and badly hurt. Girls are sy inpathoticcreatures, and she's bound to pity you, and think tlio other fellow a horrid brnto. "This House for Sail"was the way the landlord spelled the announcement. A smart fellow came along and asked : " When will tho house sail ?"—" As soon as sonio ono comes along who can raise the wind," was the cool answer. A girl in Georgia brought a suit against a recreant lover, claiming ten thousand dollars damages, but she compromised lor four bales j of cotton and a new parasol.

TALK TO YOUR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 22 December 1883
TALK,TO YO Uli HOKSE. SoMB man, unknown to tlio writer hereof, lins given to the. world a saying that sticks : " Talk to your cow as you would to a lady." There is a world of common sense in it. There is more ; there is good sound religion in it. What else is it but the language of the Bible applied to animals : " A soft answer turneth away wrath." A pleasant word to a horse in time of trouble has pre vented many à disaster where the horse has learned that pleasant words mean a guar antee that danger from punishment is not imminent. One morning a big muscular groom said to his employer : " I can't exercise that horse any more. He will bolt and run Anything he sees." The owner, a small man, and ill at the time, asked that the horse be hooked up. Step ping into the skeleton, he drove a couple of miles, and then asked the grosm to point •out along the road such objects as the horso was afraid of. This was done, and the horse was driven by them quietly, back and forth, with looge lines ...
