RANDOLPH'S UNIVERSITY. Cuwmill Carrmicliael's proposition to establish a chair oC journalism at Sydney University (writes l'eter Porsnurkus) recalls a tale of that ebul lient genius, Randolph Bedford. The thing happened in the days when Bed ford still belonged to daily-press work. He went to a Sydney journal lookim for a job-Bucephalus offering to pull an ice-waggon. This journal had ,1 sort of fiction that it loked for Uni versity men to write its paragraphs about the Lord Mayor and the Drum moyne drainage. It was only fiction, but it was cherished. To this august place came Randolph, to see the gen eral manager. "Wlmt can you do?" the potentate asked. "Paragraphs, stories, articles, re ports," said Randolph. "Ah!" said the employer, not ill pleased. "And can yoii write short hand?" ( The superstition of those days was that you might be Jonathan Swift and Rudyard Kipling and Hilairo Belloc rolled together, but if you couldn't write shorthand there was no place for you there.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES Many folk seem to believe that ma trimonial nils. In the dully papers nvo eitlior fakes or Jokes. Some of tliem are not, A young gentleman, rising 50, and well worn at that, spent ciu'.te a number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous yo'jng damsel laying her rank and fortune at his feet. So lie got on to a "matrimonial agent." It seems al most incredible, but this agent ac tually l'ound a sweet young tiling of ?I'J'.i, and arranged a wedding between them without either having seen the other. Three days prior to the wed ding the giddy young dapper of l!l!i awaited her selected bridegroom in a boarding house. The bridegroom dresbed himself with care and went along. The "agent" introduced them thus: Mr. , this is Miss , your .lancee! The tar from beautiful young nan took one glance at a simpering mummified face that might have been dug up in ancient Egypt, and, without a word, grabbed his hat and departed.

FOOTBALL. TRAFALGAR v. LONGWARRY [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

FOOTBALL, TRAFALGAR v. LONGW'ARI' Trafalgar entertained Longw.-u y in their first match on their v .n ground on Wednesday and the unfurling of the premiership fiag by Mrs W'. C. Marsden proved an auspicious occasion. In the first quarter they made a paralysing rush 011 the enemy's citadel and put 011 five goals five behinds to one goal behind. From this out the game was shorn of interest till the fast quarter, when the vis itors finished gamely and increased their score by J<> points to Trafal gar's J5. The final scores were - Trafalgar, 12 goals 1.1 bhds Longwarry, 7 goals 7 bhds Of the many splendid games played for Trafalgar by Joe Price and Jerry Hogau it is doubtful if these two brilliant players were of ever greater value to their side. Price's meteoric flashes resulted in a most acceptable "donation" to liis side cf half-a-dozen goals and "Jerry's dashes" across the centre line were irresistible. Pernor's football also covered him with laurels, as likewise did t...

The Economist. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

The Economist. Some people seem to think that, to get rich, one must economise like Blanco. Blanco's faithful old dog had turned sickly and savage, and so Blanco said to his wife, on arriving home from business on Saturday evening: "I'll shoot Towsor to-morrow morn ing 'before church." ? Blanco paused, then added, stern* ly: "Sc remember, please, that he won't need any breakfast."

VARRAGON DKFKAT IOXA. Yarragon liacl a most succcssful "day-at-home" against Iona, who started off so well in their match against Trafalgar last. week, 'l'he supporters were greatly delighted with the form shown by the team, each individual member of which stood out conspicuously at one stage or other of the game. The in novation of playing that able de fender J. Morey on the forward lines produced a splendid crop of goals and the "magpies" at the finish totalled 79 points to .36. Among the first batch perhaps were Campbell, Grant, Morey, An derson and Baldie.

The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

The Difference. "If you wish to distinguish between the doath of a barber and the death of a sculptor, how would you do it?" asked Jack Merriless. "I don't know. Perhaps you will en lighten me," said his pal, Bob Syrm slick. "Well, to put it concisely. I.should sum it up like this. The barber curls up and dyes, while the sculptor makes faces and busts." A lively Irishman was once invited to a large dinner party in Dublin in the hope that he would amuse and di vert his host's guests. But from the beginning to the end of the dinner he preserved a solemn and serious face. The host thought this very strange. "Why. old fellow," he remarked, "I don't believe the biggest fool in Ire land could make you laugh to-night." "Try," wa? the wit's cutting rejoin der.

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 22 May 1914

GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, are aware why the national American currency is printed with green backs. Ever since the adoption of paper currency It has been the constant study of bank-note engravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded till as late as 1S57, when a : man named Stacy J. Edson invented j a kind of green ink, which he patent i ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile of the bills. As it is a secret known only to the American Bank Note Com pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. Even if the composition of the ink wis known, it would be of no use, as the work could not be copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.
