"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight With your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ,'ter with you that you can't? Are you hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face tX. the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose y...

More Noise Than Work. "My dear, look there," said Mr. Sim kins, as he stood 011 deck with his wife and pointed to a tug drawing several barges. "Such is life the tug is like the man, working and toiling, while the barges, like women, are—" "I know," interrupted Mrs. S., acrid ly, "the tug does all the blowing while the barges bear the burden." The value of quiet, comfort and. shelter to farm animals is son mani fested in their appearance. Woman is more constant in hatred than in love.
Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was . a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, and asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find ' it rather lonely here." "fto, I can't say as I do. You see, I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so they foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There . comes the sheriff now. You ; had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." The gold of life does not lie hidden in any mines: it sparkles in tiny ...
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. ' ~ Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character.* To be conscious that you are. ig-. norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier ■ than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must, . most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. V : A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour.. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. . To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. '' . ■ Nine-tenths "of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated • the value of thorough ness. V' .. Only for t...
The Cost of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
The Cost of Living. •' A Melbourne correspondent writes -r^T.he absorbing theme of the anxi - ous housekeeper—the poor especi ally—is the rise in price of'all the articles of daily consumption, such as meat, butter, bread, groceries, vegetables, milk and all shop goods, I and the position is indeed becoming ! serious. The vendors of all these articles rightly claim that they are entitled to charge more when they are faced with largely increased cos- • tage as to those who hand out the - the goods to the customer: It is only a natural corollary that in de termining the amount of retail char ges, all. costs should be reckoned, such as prime cost of article, rent, wages of shop hands, etc. Then in most cases the goods have; been manufactured under wages board conditions ; next ,>they are carted tinder wages board conditions to the shop ; finally wages board condi ' tious must prevail as to &lt; all . who serve out the goods over,; the coun ters or deliver them by cart..

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. la the ye&? 1828 there appeared in the streets of Nuremburg a youth who could Apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was t'ound, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion; never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. . ' Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till^his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught' to re peat like a pail-ot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," >vhere he was:fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. - . ^ At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— * Lord Stanhope—and educated to take ■the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, who was now about twen...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will be a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, which is named Speedway, an indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade.
Humorous. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
Humorous. " I married a suffragette," said Mr Cholmondeley Rippingate,' of Hyde Park, "and for five years have found unspeakable happiness." "I'm glad to hear it," said the suffragette leader. "Yes." said Rippingate ; " Mrs Rippingate has been in gaol four years and. three months altogether." Father Murphy called to see Fla nagan, who had been hit with a brick. He said : "Flanagan, I'll pray that you forgive O'Grady for throwing that brick." " Shure, your Reverence, you'd be saving . time if you'd wait till I get well, and then pray for O'Grady." A woman who attended a spirit ualistic seance was inyited by the medium to go up to the cabinet and receive a message from one who has departed to the other side of life. When she came back a friend asked I her if she had received a message. "Yes," she replied. "A voice whispered in my ear." " Was1 it a real spirit message ?" her friend per sisted.

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
V; PRISON MASTER PI ECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of .Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron \Vas imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary' achievements have' been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The'Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described b/ a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at S p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before. Th...

Methodist Minister on Mining Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 30 April 1914
Methodist Minister on Mining Methods. Rev. Otto A. Schroeaer, sou of Mrs Schroeder, of Wangaratta, who has been in the Methodist ministry for some years and is now stationed at Boulder, Western Australia, re cently created a good deal of interest - by an- outspoken sermon that he preached in his mining centre. '' Many hundreds of years ago," the preacher remarked,"a man named Isaiah said the men shall be more precious . than, flue gold, but the' prophecy seemed a long time in • coming to. Isaiah looked forward to the time when the lives of men would be the most precious things on earth but if we looked round in * the world to day we had to admit . that men, were cheap. If a man's life and a dividend were weighed in the balance, the man's life would have to go. In a half hour's casual stroll in the.-Boulder cemetery he counted 32 men who had been killed in the mines, while the caretaker of the Kalgoorlie cemetery told him that the average age of the miners was only 42 years.
