ONE TO TAFFY. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
ONE TO0 TAFFY. A welshman was spending a holiday in.. I: Ldndon-fbor te first time. Walkihg. through a fashionable street, he noticed on a door bell, and at the side the words "Please ring the bell." Taffy went and rang the bell. In a second a little, powdered footman ap- peared and asked him what he wanted. "Nothing" said the Welshman'. "Then why did you ring the bell?" "Because it said so," replied Taffy.. "Oh,'" said the Footman with a smile, "I see you come from the country, where nanny-goats grow on gooseberry bushes." "Yes," said the Welshman. "But in London there are mere wonderful sights. You have only to ring the bell and a monkey pops out." Rich Spinster Aunt: "-low well 'e haved your children are, George. Why Dolly, you are a little lady." The Little Lady: "Yes;. pa said ' so didn't behave he'd knock our ,lo .', ng heads off, didn't you, pa P?"

A JOKE ON VERDI. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
A JOKEI ON VERDI. Siorza, the composer, who died re cently at Seattle, used to tell tlhe fol lowing story:- "'Once eVrdi and I had apartments opposite each other in Milan. The street was narrow. It was warm and our windows were open. Verdi was writing one of his operas, and, after writing one aria, he sat down at the piano and played it. I decided to play a joke on him, so I closed the shutters, and when he got through I sat down at my piano and played the same thing. Then I peeped through the blinds, and saw Verdi hanging half way out of his window, looking in all directions. I heard no more from his piano. "That evening, as we were walking together, he was much preoccupied, and I asked him what was the matter. " 'Well Giorza, he replied, 'I wrote a song this afternoon that I was posi tive was original, and yet as soon as I played it, someone else in the neigh borhood played the same thing. It worries me to think that I should be lieve another's composition was my own.' "Thep I tol...
CHATTER. I chatter, chatter, as I go. A CAMP SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
I chatter, chatter, as I go. A CAMP SUNDAY. "Never been in camp " said the voice on the telephone. "Not been in camp-come down with me to-morrow." There being, as it seemed, no two ways about it-we went. Dust-colored tents on a flat, bare plain. Not half the tents and not half the dust that were there before, we are told, Not half the men either. That is in number. For the rest, as dear old Dogberry says. "Comparisons are odorous," but we heard what the Colonel thought of his men; and what other folk thought of the second con tingent, and perhaps it would not be wise to put in print lest the said con tingenrit be told an become unduly up lifted. That reminds me. We saw some of the work of the Cheer Up Our Boys" Society. Very tood it was. I have only one fault to find with that so ciety, and that is that its name is a little misleading. Firstly, they are not boys, but men, stalwart ones at that, Secondly, so far as I could see, they did not show the slightest symptom of wanting cheer...

HE OBEYED. "Dl)id you deli'er my message to Mr. Smith?" asked the merchant. Now Olffico 3Boy: "No sir; he was out, and the office was locked up." "Well, why dlidn't you wait as told you?" '"There was a :.otice on the door, ?t. sayng 'Roturll at onco,' so I callle Oe quick as I could!" Concerning the Commonwoealth nloto issue, the Minister of Defonce, replying to a question "n the Senate on Fri day, said it was *s fact that £500,000 in notes had bcon issued recently and placed in circulation, but it was not true that most of the notes had not been absorbed and returned to the Treasury.
AUSTRALIA AND THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST LINK SEVERED. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
AUSTRALIA AND THE INDIAN MUTINY. THE LAST TINK SEVERED. One of the last links connecting Aus tralia with the Indian mutiny of 1857 was snapped in Perth, Western Aus tralia,_a.eIe?d ays _ago..?vhenfo ._1e3ViL-? liam Henry Symnons, formerly of the 1st Battalion of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, answered to the roll call for the last time; Few who no ticed the tall figure of the old commis sionaire standing at the entrance to the Economic Stores, at the corner of Hay and William Streets, Perth, had any idea that as a young man he played his part with the "illustrious garrison" in that magnificent defence of Lucknow which lasted for five months, until the brave defenders were finally relieved by Sir Colin Campbell. Pte. Symons, who was 77 at the time of his death, joined the 32nd regiment at Plymouth in 1856, and shortly afterwards left for India. When the mutiny broke out the following year, the 32nd was sta tioned at Lucknow, and it was upon it that the whole defence of the ci...

SWISS AMAZONS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
SWISS AMAZONS. Switierland has mobilized to defend her neutrality. Swiss women want to ight by the side of their men folkl, be-, lievina that war is inevitable, and many of the women are splendid rifle shots. In the Canton of Aragau it is reported that two young women in uniform, with their hair cut off, tried to be enrolled recently, but forgot the faot that they had to undergo a medical examination, which ordeal they-refused to face. How they obtained their uniforms and arms is not known. In the streets, train~s and cafes you can often hear the phrase from Swiss women, "I don't mind going to the war and fighting. My husband has gone; what can I do alone." In the Alpine districts, and in the small villages in Switzerland, the women, old and young, aided by old men, are gathering in the erops slow ly, even small children helping, as the male population have disappeared to ioin the army. Old women "experte" may be seen cutting the hay. Both the grain and fruit crops.are very good in ...
INCREASING CALF REARING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
INCREASING CALF REARING IN ..THE-UiiTi ED7 INGi0 M. Various circumstances in the United Kingdom have recently combined to direct attention to the desirability of rearing a larger number of cows so os to insrease the-home supply of fat and store cattle. There is first of all,-the improved prices for beef; which are likely to cotinue, because the farmers of North America have practically ceased to contribute this article to British markets, and the States now compete for a portion of the surplus from South America. So far the Argentine has been able to meet the demand, but there are indications that it may be found difficult to maintain the output on the necessary scale. lThe meetings of several of the South Am erican companies have shown that pro fits have diminished owing to the high er value of the cattlo, and unless there is a substantial profit, the impetus to he requisite large expansion will be lacking. Then ,the interruption of trade from Ireland, owing to the foot and mouth q...
TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
TURF TOPICS (By "Fleminsgos.") One of the most welcome items of re cent news is that "the tote" is now considered almost a certainty in Now South Wales. The Holman Govern ment is inl need of revenue, and the totalisator is one means of raising the wind. A 2% per cent. State tax on the betting turnover in New South Wales would total up into quite a re spectablo total at the end of the year. No Government faced with a financial problem can afford to miss a chance like this. It is a perfectly legitimate way of raising funds, and besides, the bet ting public almost to a man favor the "tote.'? Whether it is intended in New South Wales to follow the Westralian ex ample by allowing the totalisator and the bookmakers to compete against each other remains. The extremists will perhaps want to do without the bookmaker altogether, but there is per haps no reason to go quite that far. A limited Ring in addition to the "machine" might be the better idea. Epsom provided the programme for suburban ...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (Bv "Rustioua.") "Business as Usual" is Britain's mot to during the war. The spirit at the back of that mobto might well be emu lated by the rural producers of Aus tralia in the face of the great drought. Their mote should be a doubue harvest next year, to make gooT the one that is small or altogether es-n-existent this season. In this con.ection, no better :Puso oan be mnade of this column this week than to set out the reasons the Victorian' Ministry are anxious . that farmers should put the greatest possible area of land under wheat cultivation next season. These were expressed by tile premier the other day. He said:--"As everybody knows, the great eat and most destructive war in history has been raging without intermission for four months. Competent military opinion takes the view that the struggle will be prolonged. But, whetler the 'war be long or slhort, it must inevitably mand in Europo-for all kinds of im ,lead to material and unsatisfied de ported foodstuf...
THE EYES OF KITCHENER. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
THE EYES OF KITCHENER. (By O. Henry, in "Everybody's Journal." ') Dulcio worked in a departnment store. She sold Hamburg edging, or China dogs, or automobiles, or other little trinkets such as they keep in dopart ment stores. Of what she earned, Dul cie received six dollars per week. The remainder was credited to her and' de bited to somebody else's account in th' ledger kept by the Recbiding -Book kIeeper. One afternoon at six, when Dulcie was sticking her. hatpin within an eighth of an inch of her medulla oblong eta, she said to her chum, Sadie; "Say, Sdde, I made a date for dinner this evening with Piggy." "You never did " exclaimed Sadio admiringly. "Well, ain't you. the luck one. Piggy's 'an ~awful swell; and he always' takes a girl to swell places. Hie tookl Blanche up to' the Hoffmnan House one evening, where they have swell music, and you see a lot of swells. You'll have a swell time, Dule'." Dulcie hurried homeward. Her eyes were shining, and her cheeks shdwed the delicate ...
PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 27 November 1914
PARIS STORY OF AN HOTEL MANAGER. "Ha's been shot; over a hundred spies hlave been shot at Vincennes anc La Muette.' This Frenchman was speaking of an hotel mianager I used to know a little writes the Paris correspondent of the London "Daily Mail." His hotel is off the Champs-Elysees, a place of soft carpet and inlaid wood, marble and palms. He was one of'those suave, self-possessed German or Austrian hotel managers who make on you an uncanny impression of omniscience. They speak every European tongue without a trace of faltering; they know the name of the best hotel, and are personally acquafitrd wsith ts manager in every city of Europe. .They can give you detailed directions for the most complicatel journey without open ing a single tice-table, and their in formation is right to the last particle. They kinow at what station the dining car is put on, and they impress you to remember that the train leaves Klein stadt-nm-Fluss twenty minutes earliir this monthl than the time mentioned...
