Observing' a Maxim. A commercial traveller tells this story.' — One day while standing at the door of a shop in a small village I noticed a tall, respectable-looking old man go into the shop with a pail in his hand, and ask to be supplied with two quarts of treacle. The pa.ll was filled, and before he depart ed he put an ordinary crook stick. through the handle of the pall and slung it over his shoulder. He reached the side walk, when, a shining new p\n ar rested his attention. Suddenly remem bering the old adage — . ' See a pin and pick It up, . ; . All next day you'll have good luck'— he reached down for the pin, whereupon the' treacle poured out In a flood on to his neck/ - Straightening himself- up, he remarked, amidst the . laughter , of ; the bystanders, ' Oi -never did think: miooch o' that 'ere proverb, and I think, less on: it neowithan I ever did.' / ': ': C

Japanese Courtesy. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 19 October 1898

Japanese Courtesy. A good story is told by a friend of the famous Admiiil Ito, illustrating at once, the courtesy o?his nation and the kindly nature of the man himself. On . one occasion the conversation turned upon the facilities afforded, to foreigners for travelling about in Japan, and the nar rator of the Incident had expressed a wish to go to-a certain place. Admiral pocket a bank-note for five yen and wrote his signature on it. He then handed the note over to his friend, saying quietly, but decidedly, 'You can go through Japan on that flve-yen note, I'm certain of it.' There was no aggre sive assertion of his personal power in the action, but only satisfaction in the knowledge of his ability to be of ser vice. His signature is a sure passport anywhere In the Mikado's dominions.

The, bifurcated garment Is banned ??' to , Anglo-Indian femininity. With Ingenuity which his session should noc.iau CO tippitjumicr, me rev. gvuiieman discovered a text . to ? fit the- modern ten dency to knickerbockers. He found It In Deuteronomy, twenty-second chapter and fifth 'verse: — 'The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.' This seems clear as to the theological bearing of the case, but, with all due respect to Moses, It may be urged that he never saw a bicycle, neither aid he legislate with a view to female football.
