GETTING TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 April 1914
GETTING TO SLEEP. Do your best to acquire the habit of going to sleep as soon as ever you get into bed. Don't coax yourself by reading, or anything of that kind; but just take it for granted that you are going to bed straight to sleep,. no matter whether you are in your usual surroundings or not. You will not succeed in "popping off" immedi ately at lirst, but each time you try it will grow easier, till at last you will acquire a sleep habit which will be worth a great deal to you in years to come. A rat;ler mean ma;n. going out to play golf. hIad failed to come to terms with the caddie and started off carry ing the clubs himself. After watching a stroke or two the csd'lie resolved to get his own back. "'Ilere, mieter." he said, "'give me ~h' clubs; I 11 carry them for nothing. It's worth it to see you play."

Advising the Prophet. Fie entered the meteorological olice, and said, in his jerky way: "This 'ere's where you give out weather predictions. ain't it?" The clerk nodded. "Well," continued the old man. "' thought as how I would come up and give you some useful tips." "Yes?" said the clerk, politely. "I've watched very carefully, an' I find that ye ain't always right." "No: we sometimes make mis takes." "Course you do. WVe all Ido some times. Now, I was thinkln' as how a line that used to be on the auction handbills down in our county might do lust-rate on your weather predic tlons, and save you a lot of explain In'." "What was the line?" "Wind an' weather permittin'." Ife went down without waiting to say good-bye. The finger of suspicion generally wears a wedding ring. Love is only an explanation-never an excuse. A woman never cares how good a man is If he'll only pretend to be bad.
