NO WEDLOCK OR ZOO FOR HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 9 May 1914
NO WEDLOCK OR ZOO FOR HIM. Not to be outdone by a confrere, ( Judge Ronald, who rendered a decis ion that a dog has a perfect right to bite a man who steps on his tail, and the man so bitten is not entitled to damages for a hurt, Judge Wil son R. Cay, of the Superior Court (U.S.A.), has offered John Murray, a burglar, a chance to escape the penitentiary if he will marry, or get a canary bird, parrot or dog to live with. Murray, startled, looked up at the judge, and if he has his way about it his address for the next few years will be the peniten tiary. Murray broke into a restaurant and stole roast beef and was arrested, charged with burglary. He told the court he was a bachelor. Judge Cay rendered a decision and also a good dissertation on the loneliness- of bachelors. He told Murray if he would marry, or get a parrot, canary, or dog to live with, so that he would have something to live for, he would parole him. Murray says he was drunk when he stole the food, but he doesn't want t...

LOVE AND COMMON SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 9 May 1914
LOVE AND COMMON SENSE, By Dotly Madison. . "IE young people, wouid only hsi«e a little sense aat-.v. their love affairs" is a remark often made, ..there would be fewer unhappy rcarrin^es ' On the basis of that reiiiavU 1 bo-tan this article. But the more I have thought \ about it, the more I have been con- I vinced that it is not more common sense, but more love which makes the happy marriages. There is such a difference between being ''in love" and 'loving." Boys and girls fall in love a doro"? times, but often love only once in their whole lives. "In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." That's the way he does it-'ii^hlly but when he really loves'.it grips him and he cannot get away from it. and Vie does great deeds because of it. "He loves one maiden only and wor ships her by years of noble deeds" -that's loving in its highest develop ment, and when young people love that way they will not need common sense to guide them, because they will be willing ...
