"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
"NEDDY'S FOOTING IT NOW." At a certain railway station in the North of Ireland a farmer was wait ing for the train with a donkey he had purchased. On the arrival of the train at the station the farmer asked the guard where he would put the donkey. The guard, who was in a hurry, replied, "Put it behind," meaning to put it into a horse van. Pat tied the donkey to a buffer and then got into the carriage himself. As the train was flying along at express speed Pat, turning to a com panion, said, "By gosh, boy, Neddy's footing it now!" The average individual who sells tickets in a railway station acts like a nihilist; but down in his heart he feels himself nothing less than a czar.

Ended Happily. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
Ended Happily. As the farmer's wife laid down the magazine that she bad been reading and soulfully sighed, her husband glanced up from his newspaper. "What's the matter, Maria?" asked the old man. "Have ye finished that story?" "Yes, Henry," answered Maria, "juSt this very minute." "I s'pose," said Henry, resuming his paper, "that it ended happy?" "Yes," answered Mlaria. "The beau tiful heroine got over a long spell of sickness, an', what's more, the story gives the name 'an' the price of the medicine what cured her." Men always think a woman inter esting when they hear she is pretty, but they don't' think a woman is pret ty because they are told she is in teresting.
What Was His Reward? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
What Was His Reward? The occupants of the railway car riage were listening with joyful inter est to the tales of the young man in the corner. He had been all over the world several times, apparently, add his adventures had been marvellous. "Coolness and courage are the things," he was saying. "Take this case: We 'were in Central Africa, tra velling among cannibal" tribes. One evening, when we camped, I had strolled off while my men prepared supper, when suddenly above a rock in front of me I saw the heads of three natives who were watching me. What was I do do? My gun was at the camp. To turn back meant having .pears through me. In a moment I •ecided. Close by were some stones. Pretending I didn't see the niggers, I bent down as if to examine the stones; then, quick as lightning, I picked up three of them and flung them with all my force at their heads. Every one found its mark, and the three natives dropped like sheep. I always take a good aim, and it served me well then." IThen th...
A Part of the Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
A Part of the Winter. A Chicago mining engineer tells of a law suit tried in that city, ,wherein one of the witnesses was an old pro spector from a mining settlement in the North-West, a settlement situated about twelve thousand feet above the sea level, where the snow drifts and packs and remain all the year round. "How long have you lived in Mar shall?" asked the lawyer, conducting the examination of the old prospec tor. "The best part of one winter." "That's very indefinite," said the lawyer. "What do you mean by the best part of one winter?" "Well," said the witness, after due deliberation and reflection, "I've been up there about eleven months."
"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
"BE A WOMAN." "Be a man" is an injunction which implies that one is endeavoring to aim at achieving all that is best in manhood. No one would dream of stimulating a person's ambition to loftier ideals by 'bidding-him "Be a gentleman." Likewise, there should be no offence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word, no less than its homeliness, enables it to be applied not to ariy particular sections which can be marked off as having more of the good things of this world than the others, but to all, from the Queen on her throne to the humblest in the land w?ho is contri buting something through her woman liness towards making the commun ity around her richer by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacri fice, and her love.
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
ON THE EDUCATION OF DELICATE BOYS. A great deal of nonsense, as it seems to me, is often talked about the danger of allowing 'boys who are deli cate or suffer from some physical in firmity to face the supposed rigors of public school life. It is supposed in many quarters that a 'weakly boy, at one of the -big schools, has his life 'ade a aburden to him by his compan ions, and runs the risk of having his health completely shattered. If the school is carefully chosen and is one in which there is anything approach ing a decent tone, I cannot help thinking that tile opposite of this is almost invariably the case. Boys have more natural good-feel ing than they are sometimes given credit for, and in a good school the greatest consideration is shown by the boys for a companion who suffers from some physical disability, More over, the -watchful care which a .boy receives at school (particularly if the medical authorities have 'been warned beforehand), coupled 'with the regular life and disc...
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Famous Suffragette. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
MAN, THE MONSTER: HIS DEEDS AND MISDEEDS. A Speech by a Famous Suffragette. The history of the past and present, my sisters, is colored crimson with the deeds and misdeeds of Man, the Monster. He stays out late and comes home early. He breaks open the children's money-boxes and buys Wild WVoodbines with their dear little far things. In the olden days he would neglect his wife while he went to the tourney; now he neglects her while he goes to the Old Bull and Pear Tree. In those same olden days he would make of her a beast of burden, now he burdens her with beasts-what with his ferrets, his dogs, his pigeons, and his gramophones! In fact, blood is on his hands; his feet are on the crooked path; his eyes are alwas picking out winners that have a pain in their legs and his mouth is always occupied with a quart pot or someone else's half-pint glass. He is a wretch, a brute, a prevarica tor, and perfect wash-out. All the crimes in the calendar can be laid to his charge. We have Nero-he p...
DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 9 April 1914
DON'T WORRY. The Plague went forth in the land, and one met him asking if he could stay his cruel hand. The Plague an swered that he meant to be merciful; he would only take five thousand from the earth. Some time afterwards these two met again. "So thou art a liar as well as a mur derer," said the other to the Plague; "thy five thousand meant fifty thou sand." "Not so," answered the Plague. "I took but my five thousand-Fear and Worry killed the others."
