Spoiling the Fun. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

Spoiling the Fun. It was a sweet, sad play, and there was hardly a dry handkerchief in the house. But one man in the pit irrita ted his neighbors excessively by re fusing to take the performance in the proper spirit. Instead of weeping, he laughed. While others were mopping their eyes and endeavoring to stifle "I d-don't know what brought y-you h-here." she sobbed, with streaming eyes, and pressing her hand against her aching heart; "but if y-you don't like tho p-play, you might 1-let other p-peoplc enjoy it!" An Irish soldier was crossing a bar rack square with a pail in which he was going to get some water. A sergeant, passing at the time, no ticed that Pat had a very disreputable looking pair of trousers on, and, wish ing to make a report, stopped the man and asked. "Where are you going?" "To get some water." "What! In those trousers?" "No, sergeant. In the pail!" Young Henderson, who has gradu ated in medicine, is very fond of giv ing wise opinions 011 all matters. One day, whil...

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

MAKING THE BISHOP LAUGH. Probably one of the prettiest com pliments ever j>ai<l to the lair Hex was that contained in the answer made by Dr. Potter, Bishop or New York, who was once asked by a lady why, in the many pictures and studies ol angels ?exhibited, the unguis were alw;;ys de lected either <iH women or as young men without- beards or mousuiche-s. "Everyone knows," replied the Bishop, "that women naturally inherit- the Kingdom of Heaven, but men only get in by a very close shave." ThhJ story is related by the Rev. T. Sol by Henrey, \ icar of St. George (Brentford), whose little volume, en titled "Attic Salt," provides many an illustration of the fact that wit and appreciation of humor are not the least prominent characteristics of lead ing divines, lie tells a story of the lato Dr. Creightoa, who once recei v-d a book from a second-rate author, to whom ho replied by post, "1 thank you very much for forwarding to me your book, and I promise you faithfu...

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSiO.N. In the deep pine forests oL' Norway the wood-ouiters sometimes find a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. II they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might he frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather (luring July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting ov.t on this journey, they stick themselves to gether .and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine, needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this p...

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where the old oaks- gather, Serene and good and strong, And they would not sigh and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rliyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. Tlicy would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars to be fought And th...

START. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 22 April 1914

START. There's art in a start. Every good thing has waited >fo'r years, perhaps for ages, and only for a starter. The good things in our life have waited in the same way, perhaps are waiting still. The art of start is this: Just begin. - "Don't wait to feel like it, for you won't. Don't wait till it-'is eisier, fov it never will be. . If the thing ought to be done, ^start It, and start it how. Dead men tell no tales; which may explain why widows so often marry again. Says a daily paper advertisement: "Motor for sale; owner no further use." Why isn't he? He has either 'kmId too much or too little. -

GETTING TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

GETTING TO SLEEP. Do your best to acquire the habit of going to sleep as soon as ever you get into bed. Don't coax yourself by reading, or anything of that kind; but just take it for granted that you are going to bed straight to sleep, no matter whether you are in your usual surroundings or not. You will not succeed in "popping off" immedi ately at first, but each time you try it will grow easier, till at last you will acquire a sleep habit which will be worth a great deal to you in yearB to come.

Advising the Prophet. He entered the meteorological office, and said, in his jerky way: "This 'ere's where you give out weather predictions, ain't it?" The clerk nodded. "Well," continued the old man, "I thought as how I would come up and give you some useful tips." "Yes?" said the clerk, politely. "I've watched very carefully, an' I find that ye ain't always right." "No; we sometimes make mis takes." "Course you do. We all do some times. Now, I was thinkin' as how. a line that used to 'be on the auction handbills down in our county'might do fust-rate on your weather predic tions, and save you a lot of explain in'." "What was the line?" "Wind an' weather permittin'." He went down without waiting to say good-bye. A rather mean man, going out to play golf, had failed to come to terms with the caddie and started off carry ing the clubs himself. " After watching- a Btroke or two the caddie resolved to get his own back; "Here, mister," he said, "give me the clubs; I'll carry them for not...

KEEP ON KICKING! [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914

KEEP ON KICKING! Two frogs one day-so runs the tale Went out to reconnoitre; Wanting something to commandeer To make their ibelts feel tighter. They fell-but how I cannot tell (I did not see them do it) Into a pail of buttermilk, And soon began to rue it. They kick'd, aud kick'd, and klck'd again, But all their strength seemed wasted. They thougnt of home, out in the fields, And all the joys they'd tasted. They slipped and climbed, they climb ed and slipped, They spluttered execration; Till one cried out, "I'll jack it up!" 'Twas his last exclamation. He lost all hope, gave up the fight, And sank 'neath milky waters; His mate kick'd on, resolved to see Again his wife and daughters. He jump'd and kick'd till he could feel The milk around him churning; And in his breast, though cold his blood, The hope of freedom burning. The milk grew hard, the butter set; On it his feet he rested; Climb'd to the top. Success at laBt! Through pluck he'd not 'been bested! Moral. When things look black...
