BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914

BLACKIB'S SYMPATHY, A delightful story Is told of the grand old professor of whom Edln* burgh Is so proud, Professor Blackle was lecturing to a new class with whose personnel he was very imperfectly acquainted, In answer to some direction given by the lecturer, a student rose to read a paragraph, his book In his left hand, "Sir!" thundered Blackle, "hold your book in your right hand," And as ihe student would have spoken, "No words, sir! Your right hand, I say!." The student held up his right arm, ending piteously at the stump of Its wrist, "Sir, I hbo nae rlcht hand," he said, and his voice was unsteady. Before Blackle could open his lips, there arose from the class such a ter. rifle storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear, and by it his voice was overborne as by a wild sea, Then the professor left his place and went down to the student he had unwittingly so hurt, He put his arm about the lad's shoulders and drew him close, and the lad leaned up against his brea...

SING A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914

SING A SONG, If you'll sing a song as you go along In the face of the real or the fancied 'wrong in face of the doubt, if you'll fight it out, And show a heart that Is brave and stout; If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears, You'll force the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries, To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll win success with a little song- If you'll sing the song as you go along. If you'll long a song as you plod along You'll find that the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain; That the suni will follow the blinding rain, That the clouds will fly from the blackened sky, That the stars will come out by-and. bye, And you'll make new friends, till hope descends Flrom where the placid rainbow bends, And all because of a little song If you'll sing the song as you plod along, If you'll sing a song as you trudge along You'll see that the singing will make you strong, And the heavy load, and the rugged road, ...

The Degree of Annoyance. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 April 1914

The Degree of Annoyance, The Kaiser, who hag apparently banned the "tango," has a habit of gently tugging at his left ear when anything bothers him. One day, some years. ago, when he was on a visit to England, he was handed a telegram. T'he contents of the message apparently displeased him, for he immediately began tug° ging at his ear, The Prince of Wales, then a small boy, watched the performance with considerable interest. "Uncle," le said at length, "why are you pulling your ear?" "Because I'm annoyed, I suppose," replied the Kaiser, "And when you're very annoyed," persisted the young Prince, "what do you do then?" "Then I pull somebody else's!" an. nounced Hiis Majesty viciously. "You're terribly severe in your re. Ilgloi, 'Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdition, and no' body will be saved but you and your mlinisterl" "I'nm not so sure o' that," said Don. aid, thoughtfully, "Ye ken, I whiles hae ma doote about the ministeri"

It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Italian s...

Angliss and Co., Pty., Ltd., that defendants "did have in possesion a false spring balance." A letter from the manager of the defendant, Co., expressed regret at being unable to attend. Possession and use of the scales in question was ad mitted, but the firm, having a man to oversee the scales used at the various branch shops, was not aware the one seized was incorrect. James Lucas Murray deposed that he was an inspector of weights and meas ures, and the 3rd April found the scales in question in use at defendant's shop, 223 High street, Northcote. It worked on the principle of the spring-balance, which was not a reliable means of weigh ing, as a spring was affected by temper ature conditions, The dial allixed to the scales showed 1A ozs, against the purchaser without any goods being on it. This was plainly indicated to both seller ...

The description of Mr. Horsefall and Mr. Cow Trip with the Canyons and Ravines and the dear delightful hospice in Yann, at Preston sur Darebin, which appeared in your last week's issue, did it. Pa has now changed his mind, and instead of him and ma only going to Switzerland, he is taking the whole family to Yann. Won't it be lovely? I only hope the Miasma plateau will not be quite impassable, but sufficiently dangerous to have to be rescuedby those dear St. Bernard dogs. Do you know, Mr. Editor, if they ruffle you much when they rescue you? Pa says I can have the dog, as long as he gets the little barrel on its neck. I suppose he wants to keep it as a sou venir like the other souvenirs he has in the back shed, evidently from a family of monks called "Dewar." There's a whole lot of other souvenirs with "No. 10" on them in the shed. I have not seen any higher numbers yet, for i...
