News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Solved His Repair Problem
LONDON, Saturday.
Frederick Eldridge, of Chatham, Kent, was summoned for failing to comply with a Gillingham Borough Council direction to repair the roof and  guttering of a house of which he was the landlord. When he appeared in court he was told that unless he obeyed the order the council would step in and do the work and charge Eldridge for the repair.
"Excellent," commented EIdridge, "That is just what I want. I have been  trying to find a builder to repair the house for the past six months."
