RIFLE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912
RIFLE NOTES. On Saturday and Monday last the members of the above club finished their musketry shooting. A good muster of the pioneer members of the club put in an appearance on the range and fired their musketry course. On Saturday next, teams from the Mardan and Little River Rifle Clubs are expected to fire a Triangular match on the local range. Members are asked to roll up as early as possible so the shoot- ing will be finished before the light begins to fall. The captain and secretary had the pleasure of a trip to Warrnambool with a team from No. 21-Union, which they thorough- ly enjoyed, and, although they did nothing sensational in the way of shooting, they kept up the club's name for good, steady shooting, by both scoring 93 over 300, 500, and 600 yards, and had the pleasure of being in the winning team.
LOOKING FOR "SAL." [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912
LOOKING FOR " SAL.' A young man and his lady-love at- tended an Evangelistic meeting in the village church. Arriving rather late, they found the church filled; but a gentleman arose and gave the fair one his seat, while one of the elders beckoned the young man to come for ward, and he, too, was given a seat in the front part of the building. The service grew rather impressive. The minister then exclaimed : " Those who want assistance by our prayers will kindly stand up." Just at this juncture the young man was contemplating going home, and stood up and looked round for his fair one. The minister, mistaking his inteni tions, asked : " Young man, are you looking for salvation?" &nbsp; To which the young man replied " No, sir, I'm looking for Sal Col- lins."
WHAT THE PILOT KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912
WHAT THE PILOT KNEW. The chairman of an ocean line company was taking a journey actoss the water, and when the ship entered a very dangerous channel he engaged in conversation with the pilot, who was a whiskered old man of sixty eight, with all the appearance of having spent most of his days on the water. The magnate remarked, " I suppose you know all the dangerous places in this channel ?" The pilot looking straight out into the night, gruffly replied " No." " You don't," said the magnate, very much surprised. " Then, why on earth are you in charge of that wheel ? What do you know?" &nbsp; " I know where the bad places ain't," coolly replied the old pilot, much to the chagrin of the magnate.
MISJUDGED. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 6 June 1912
MISJUDGED. &nbsp; A few friends were having dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Robertson, and during the process of carving Mr. &nbsp; Robertson's knife struck against a wooden skewer. After covering his confusion with a few remarks on wood-carving, he endedn by murmuring uncomplimen- tary criticisms of the cook, which, however, were overheard by his son. " Oh, papa," said he, " you should not say that about the cook; she has burnt her nose so badly." "Burnt her nose ?" said papa. "How did she do that ?" &nbsp; " Why, trying to pull those skewers out with her teeth," explained the dear little boy, feeling very import- ant at being able to impart informa- tion. A Sunday school teacher had oc- casion to catechise a new pupil, whose ignorance of his Testament would have been appalling to any ordinary scholar. One Sunday she asked the little fellow how many commandments there were. To her great surpries the lad answered, glibly enough, " Ten, ma'am." " And now, Sammy," ple...

A daughter has been born to Eus tace, Prned of Zurichbold, and his wie, the Princess Agnes, nine years after the mysterious disappearance of their first-born, Egbert. The prince and princess have looked eagerly for ward to the event; and, to save the poor mother from madness, the sur geon in attendance drugs her into de lirium so that she shall not know that her babe is doomed to almost immediate death. "The curse of my cousin, Black Benlis is still on me." cried the prince, when the doctor makes all this known to him; but, to spare his beloved consort, he ac cedes to the suggestion that a living child shall be substituted for the heir ess to the grand dukedom that sur vives its nativity only a few mo ments. A lady, lost on the forest road, and needing a woman's help, rode up to the lonely inn, the "Blacle Hans," where the landlady and her rascally husband knew of a big re .-awardcoffered for-a...

Caiue for Alarm. "I suppose you visited all the points of Interest ,while you were abroad," sald one young woman. "No," answered the other, "we were so busy addressing picture postcards to our friends that we hadn't time to do much sightseeing." The world is full of hopeless failures that could have been successes had they devoted to real work one-half the energy devoted to complaining. They say that.a woman and music should never be. dated. Most men would be good if they lived in monasteries. Light-hearted people are always on the lookout for sunshine. "Please see that we - are called in time to catch the nine o'clock train in the mornin'g," said a man to the "boots".at an hotel. "I'll put you down for seven-thirty. That will give you time for breakfast," "My good man," responded the lsis' tor, "that ,won't do. Make it vdye o'clock, and then my wife will have time to dressl" A political speaker had utterly bored les audience.. Suddenly a man at the back of the ball gave a lifelike ...
