Cabby's Story. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
Cabby's Story. "Some ladies is fearful stingy. I had one t'other day"-here Ton. Whip* pem, the eaibman, smiled affectedly at his companion, drew an imaginary skirt, toyed with an invisible })ug dog and took two 'or three steps "with a mincing gait. '"Is your 'ansom disengaged'/' says she. " 'Yes'm/ I answers. " 'I trust your springs are in hor der?' she says again. " 'Ex'lent-Al,' I says. " 'Well, then, cabman, you may drive me to Regent place, No, 901; but be a-awftil careful, for pooah deah King Charlie has been so bad late ly.' "The dog was one of them spaniels that's prison-cropped on the body, but wears the 'air of their heads long like a hopera singer. Well, in she gets, an' I drove hoff to the toon of the 'Dead March.' By an' bye we gets to the destination, my lady steps hout, an' hinto the 'ouse, and I makes sure of a tip of half a crown at the lowest. Arter a bit, hout comes a flunkey, an' counts four thrupenny-pieces, also some coppers, into my list. " 'That's yer legal fa...
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. Be good and you'll be happy-antt probably poor. A well-bred child never reproves its parents In public. Give some men an inch of rope and they'll rope you in. To make things come your way it is necessary to go after them. , Blessed is the man who doesn't give offence. Also he's unusual. Some married ,men make ideal com panions-away from home. Flirtation is the best game for two> that has ever been invented. There is no woman who does not believe herself an exception to a rule. Marriage means a constant obliter ation of self, a constant "give up." Most people are like eggs-too full of themselves to hold anything else. A woman resents hearing her hus band abused: It is usurping her pri vilege. Delusions are like girls; we don't care to hug them unless they are at tractive. Love is the only thing in the world, and women who can't get it have tea instead. It is no use bluffing unless you have something to bluff with; and then you have no need to. Happy indeed is t...
She Knew. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
She l£new. It was young Mrs. Robinson's first dinner-party, and she was Buffering all the usual terrors of the inexperi enced hostess. However, the cook rose to the occa sion splendidly, and, so far as the dinner itself Was concerned, Mrs. Rob inson was delighted. The only fly in the .ointment was Jane. Jane was the new parlor-maidji she was Blow, clumsy, and her wait ing was had. But, in addition to these faults, she insisted on keeping her mouth wide open. This so got on Mrs. Robinson's nerves that at last she exclaimed: "Jane, your mouth is wide open!" Jane withdrew her gaze from the ceiling and said, looking down with a cheery smile: "I know it is, ma'am; I opened it myself f" r More "Strong" Language. "What is the meaning of that, big 'D' on the dustbin?" asked the -jott servant. The haughty footman replied:; "Damsel, the 'D' displayed 011 the dustbin denotes that the deapairing domestics^of this detached domicile desire that the deserving dustmen during their dally diversions ...
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEJR PARASITES. The latest discovery announced in the Paris Academy of Sciences is that of the parasite of the flea, which, it is claimed, is the chief agent in the spread of the plague and other dis eases transmitted by this insect. . Pulex irritans, as the flea is called in scientific writing, is the victim of the leishmanioses, which live in the flea's digestive tubing, and it is this parasite of our parasite which really transmits the plague and other infec tions, and not the much-abused flea nimself, who is only indirectly re sponsible, being compelled to carry this parasite once it finds lodgment in his anatomy. The flea looks small enough to our eye, and he is so lively that no one ever thought that any other parasite could catch liim, but it seems that not only do the leishmanioses catch him, but they also catch the plague, or yel low fever, p.nd are the most important carriers of the germs. This discovery has much to suggest to our investigators, for t...

AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. Man drinks whisky, and that clogs the valves;, he' drinks beer, and that clogs the wlfleels; he swallows lem onade, ginger-ale, butermilk, tea, cof fee and cocoa, and then wonders why the boilers do not burn. If you should take an ox and put him through a like performance he would be dead in a' month. The sim plest and plainest laws of health are outraged every day-by the average man. . Did Adam smoke? Did Eye wear a corset? Did Solomon chew tobac co? Did. Ruth chew chocolates! Did i!i2 cluI'JErsn of Israel rn?.ke for a beer garden after crossing the Red Sea? Did Rebecca chew bonbons and ice cream and call for soda-water? Adam was the first man, and was made perfect from head to heel. How long could he remain so after eating plum-pudding before going to bed? Suppose he had slept in a bedroom five by seven, with the windows closed down, the doors shut, and two dogs under the bed! Suppose Eve had been laced up in a corset, worn tight sh...
GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER IV. Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him what Hhe had done, but at the same time she honestly dreaded imparting her news, for if there were an up right, steadfast., high-principled man, it was Peter Bellairs. He might not like ber havixig written to the hotel to invite Mr. Kruger to lunch, and yet she could scarcely keep him in ig norance, for only by telling him could she get possession of the motor-car, which was to convey the worthy law yer to Sunnyside. In the afternoon a letter arrived from Ralph. He implored his mother to let him have £100 without delay. "1 have got into a little trouble over bridge," he wrote, "and must pay it at once. You'll manage, won't you, mums, dear, for you never failed a fellow yet." (No, and never shail," thought the mother.) Her hopes...
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone who has watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist. M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The ant, he says, in its outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at the same angle, and walks in the opposite di rection. The body of the ant would, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite Incapable of finding its way baclc. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The case is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. On leaving the nest it places itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet, en route, and no matter what side tracks it may oc...
Eccentric Judges. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
Eccentric Judgei. Mr. Ure has had some eccentric predecessors on the Scottish Bench. The more eccentric of all* was Lord Eskgrove. Condemning a tailor to death for murdering a soldier, Lord Eskgrove remarked: "Not only did you murder him, whereby he was bereaved of life; but you did thrust, or push, or pierce, or project,, or propel the lethal wea pon through his regimental breeches, which were His Majesty's." Sentencing two criminals for house breaking with violence, after detail ing the way they attacked the per sons of thp house, Eskgrove went on: "All this you, did, God preserve us! Just a* they were sitting down to din ner!"
"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punisnment Fit the Crime [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punisnmcnt Fit the Crime Some time ago a weft-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. " He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and tome judges, especially in America, aro be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him-to go to prison for Ave days, and to be fed during the , whole ofthat time on I a diet of eggs only; At the expiration Df his sentence Brant declared tliat he had become so tired of eggs that j he would never eat another one again, .so that the judge's novel sentence lias effected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In-California, if a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is sent to prison, where he is iriatle to "work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of the ...

The Deceitful Wife. Mr. Ralph" Nevill, the late Lady Dorothy Nevih'a son, who has j'lut published a new hook, soys that this is the golden age of the fad, and he tells an amusing story at the expense of one of hia faddist acquaintances. "When at luncheon with this friend, Mr. Nevill noticed that he touched no meat, hut ate only certain strange vegetarian uib1i°S that had evidently been specially prepared for his con sumption. Afterwards Mr. Nevill ask ed his friend's wife if this new diet agreed with her husband, "It didn't at firat," she replied. "But it does now!" "From his looks he certainly seems to thrive on it," Mr. Nevill remarked. "He never' looked more robust in his "I take care of that," was the lady's reply, "though I hope he won't find but." She then confessed that when she found that the vegetarian diet did not agree with her husband she gave or ders that each of the vegetarian dishes prepared for him was to ibe full of the strongest meat juice. The husband, under the I...

Imagination. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 April 1914
Imagination. The doctor, was baffled and the case seemed almost hopelesB, and after many different prescriptions the pa tient still said that his health was not^ improving. The complaint was not~ of a serious character, and after much thought a happy idea seized the doc tor. He would try his patient's pow ers of imagination, and approached him in this manner. "Now, my friend, when I call upon you again will you say 'I imagine I am. a little better to-day,' when I in quire after your health?" The patient replied in the affirma tive. The doctor called in a day or two and asked the patient as to his con dition. He replied, "I Imagine I am a little better to-day, sir." "That's right," said the doctor. "Now the next time I call, will you say 'I imagine I Itm a great deal better than I was the last time you called,' which,' accordingly, the patient did.

Out of the Difficulty. A characteristic story of Dr. Parker was told the other day by a clergy man, who had it from an old minister who was much interested in Joseph. Parker's early work as a local preacher. One Saturday he met Par ker, and asked him whether he had an engagement for Sunday. "Yes," was the reply, and Parker went on to specify the place. "Are your sermons ready, Joseph?" asked the minister. "I have the .morning sermon," was the reply, "but I am not sure about the oyening." "Well, Joseph, what is your text for the morning, and how do you treat it?" Parker went over his text and the outline of his sermon. "But, Joseph," said the minister, "that is very clever, but it is "not the real meaning of the text. If you will look at the commentaries you will see that you are wrong." Parker thanked him and went his way. On the Monday the minister again met his friend. "Well, Joseph, how did you get on yesterday?" "Very well," was the reply. "How did you manage?" "Well," he said, ...
