THEN AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

THEN AND NOW. When the)' sat in the shade of Cupid's throne He kissed her lips and said ' my own' on magic wings have the sweet hours flown ; Oh ! what joy for ever, to sit like this ; 1113' only meat this heavenly bliss, Wine for the God's is thy honeyed kiss ; How I long my love, for the golden hour, Where we'll live as one in a fairy bower With our mutual love as a strengthening tower.

In a few ?days he received a lawyer's letter from a ' Sydney firm asking him the name of his legal advisers....

Technical Education. TO THE BKST ROOKING COMPOSITOR. Dearest, — Please allot me six columns to enable me to correct a few mistakes and remove one or two false impressions which may have been crea ted by M. Dunne in his letter under above head ing appearing in your last issue. A post mortem of M.D.'s letter reveals the fol lowing : ' Z. I crave a little space in your columns, etc. Surely a gentleman holding M.D.'s important happier form of expression than the above. It is not meet that a man should crave, and just in the same ratio as M.D.'s waistcoat abhors a vacuum, so the average Australian abhors anything ap proaching sycophancy as being nauseating and contrary to Australian sentiment in every way. In craving, however, for a little space and taking a column M,D. commends himself as a humorist ? of no mean order. Y. Mr. Hooper informed me that his Department was prepared to establish any class when sufficient, in ducement is offered. The above is a waste of valuable space, because...

' No Scrums in their Kips.' [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

' No Scrums in their Kips.V [By Gadabout.] Terpsichore smiled his best Sunday smile o'er Katooniba from 8 a.m. on Wednesday until 1.30 a.m. of the following morn. Some might ask ' Who in the name of Caesar is this individual, and what has he got to do with Katooniba ?' (It is not a new writer for the ' Echo, ' so that's settled.) Some months ago the Spinsters of the town, assis ted by some of the fair sex that were of their number in the past, arranged what was billed as the Chrysanthemum Dance, to which they invited many Katooniba bachelors. These, together with others that used to be of the same lddney, turned out in great force. (Who said a free show had anything to do with it?). Whilst this function was in progress Terpsichore bubbled over with merriment, and at 1 a.m. on handing over the care of the homeward couples to his friend Cupid, for whom he has done duty galore, remarked, ' Here you are, Cupid, do your best with them, and I'll have another flutter when these bachelors r...

Was Pa's Tenanted? "WITH APOLOGIES TO PROFESSOR LOWRIE." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

Was Pa's Tenanted? 'With Apologies to Professor Lowrir.' This apeing of Artemus Ward oppresses me. It must cease. I, Gunn, hath spoken, let no dingo howl. Yeahs and yeahs and yeahs May pass, when lo ! A man named Gunn appears Up Wards and go. The above quaint quatrain was composed by my distinguished relative Artemus Ward, the man to whom many of the present generation may turn their thoughts as the surgeon's knife removes the appendix, and thank him, or otherwise, for small mercies. The occasion which called forth the quip was the termination of the great Gunn-Ward feud without parallel in the history of the U.S.A., a brief summary of which may be of interest to some of your readers. The Gunns and Wards (henceforth known as G's and W's) had neigh boring ranches in Nebraska, and for years the}' moonlighted one another's cattle and .shared their neighbors' cleanskins, but there came a day when the two elders of the clans, known locally as Pa G and Pa W, meet in Nebraska City, and in ...

Sib and the Socialist. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

Sib and the Socialist. Sib was the Hon. Sybil Langdale, aged twenty, the sister of the Earl of Dexter. The vSocialist was Lord Ronald Flexton, aged twenty-eight, generally known as 'The Crank.' . ' What do you think of Ronald \s new role ?' asked Miss Sybil of her sister-in-law Lady Dexter, as they sat in the drawing room of the Earl's town 'house in Berkeley Square. . ' Flextoii's a fool !' was Lady Dexter's laconic comment, and Sybil, not feeling- in a position to deny the statement, changed the subject. ? Lord Ronald was a humbug ; in certain moods he admitted it to himself. For seven years he had tried to become notorious by setting forth views that were in direct opposition to the opinions of the people amongst whom he moved. His great chance had come when, after dismissing the idea of adopting an anti-diabolostic attitude, lie had suddenly resolved to be come a socialist. The momentous decision had only been made a week, but his lordship had already distinguished himself and w...

Some Typical " Bulls." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

Some Typical ' Bulls.' The biography of Dean Hook recalls a certain minor cnnon who used to preach at the cathedral when Hook was a boy at Winchester vSchool, says the contributor of an amusing collection of ' ' Bulls' ' to the June Windsor. In one of his sermons there occurred the striking reflection that 'What is impossible can never be, and seldom comes to * pass.' Another discourse was long remembered for its pathetic lamentations on the degeneracy of the age : ' O tcwpora ! O mores ! what times we live 111 1 nine ooys ana gins run aixmi me streets cursing and swearing before they can either walk or talk.' Hut the Church of England has no monopoly of thsee violent contrasts, for it was at a City Temple not many years ago that a speaker exclaimed: ' ' I. find my time is already gone. Therefore I will keep within it.' Perhaps the best legal bull was that of a Colonial judge, who gave the following instruction to an unusually garrulous and involved witness : 'Now hold your tongue s...

True Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

True Love. Love, let us remember, is something more than a sentiment. Here is where the fatal mistake is most often made in domestic life. The sentiment and poetry of love are all very well in their place. I would not de cry them, or undervalue them, but I say that they are altogether worthless if they of every day. Here is a sparkling gem. How it glit ters and glistens! What depths of fire there seem to be in its heart ! But we have heard that certain persons have been very successful in imitating diamonds and rubies, and we are a little suspicions of our gem, so we will take it to the jeweller's. ' How much is this worth ? ' we say to him. He opens a little vial and drops a single particle of acid on the jewel, and behold the sparkle dies out of it, and the simulated fire iu its heart is quenched, and we see that it is a worthless bit. of paste. But if it is a real gem the acid rolls off like so much water, and in its inmost heart it sparkles as brightly as ever. There is an acid ...
