WONDERFUL NORTH POLE BANQUET IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
WONDERFUL NORTH POLE BANQUET EN LONDON. Within two and a half hours the ?A'inter garden of the Savoy Hotel was converted recently into a realistic re presentation of the North Polo, amid ?he icebergs of which Mr George A. ivesslor entertained his guests, English ?.nd American, to a banquet rivalling his rondola dinner of four voars aco. The cost of the banquet' was stated ^o be over £2000, or nearly £G0 a head. When Mr Kessler gave his gondola ban quet, the winter garden of tho Savoy tlotol was turned into a lagoon, and lis guests sat in a rose-embowered gon !ola. On Friday night the winter gar den became the home of snow and ice. In the centre was the Polo itself, all -iviiito and glistening, and surrounded -y icebergs of silver tissue and fields of plaster snow. Peary and Cook were here, striving to reach tho Polo from ?pposito sides. Covers for tho tliirty our guests were laid on a table of imi ?ation snow wliicli girdled the Pole.

GREAT MEN'S WOOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
GREAT MEN'S WOOINGS. ? That there is no accounting for the eccentricities of lovers is sufficiently proved by the odd methods in which , many of the world's great men have wooed and won their wives. When Schumann, the famous com poser, fell head over heels in love with Clara Wieck, his master's daughter, his path of courtship was by no means one of roses, for Herr Wieck had no wish to see his only daughter the wife , of a penniless musician, and he for bade the young lovers to hold any communication with each other. ? But love laughs at parental frowns, and, as Schumann could not even write to his lady-love, he poured out his soul to her in aperies of 'Letters to Clara,' printed in a musical journal o£ which he was editor. When the time was ripe for settling his destiny, he made music the vehicle of his passion, and actually proposed to Clara on the piano under the very nose of her ^ father, without a single word being uttered, and received her joyful as - sent through the same medi...

A STORY FROM WESTERN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
A STORY FROM WESTERN CANADA. We reached the banks of the river to find the stream running deep and strong, and sitting on a log, with a bland smile on his face, was a man aDout nfty years old. He indulged in a broad grin and a chuckle as we salu ted, and when asked the cause of his merriment, he replied: 'It's about the old woman -and the hoss, gents.' 'Do you mean your wife?' '1 do. We was going over to Bucka ville, both on the same hoss, and she N was mad and out of sorts. When we got Here ana found the river bank iull, I sez to her: ''Nancy, the old hoss kin never' -- take us across. Let's go up to Carter's Ford.' '? 'Carter's Ford be hanged!' sea she. ' 'But I daseen't try it here.' ' 'Then you kin stay behind and I'll go alone.' ' 'You'll be drowned, fur'- sure.' ' 'Thar ain't water 'nuff in' the world to drown me.' 'I argued and reasoned with her,' continued the old man, 'but she was stiff-necked in her ways. The more I argued the more determined she was, and bimeby I slid off...

AN AUTOGRAPH ALBUM. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
AN AUTOGRAPH ALBUM. I am one of a very large family (writes Edna Smith), and I think it would be difficult to find a household of people whose tastes are more var ied than ours. My eldest sister is a keen golfer, and wins quite a number nf nri?Q(! in nfYmndH+inTlR TWO . Of my orothcrs make tennis and cricket their hob Dies. Another sister excels in swimming and bakes well, while still uiiotuer makes quite a nice little income with her camera. Among so many you will see that it is not easy to hnd something original, but some . time ago I visited some friends, one of whom went in for autograph, col lecting, and since then 1 have made that my hobby. This may sound tame to some people, but I assure you when you once begin you can become quite as enthusiastic over it as any of the more energetic sports, especially when (like me) you are debarred from such games as hockey and golf. I began by collecting the autographs of well known actors and actresses, and have quite a large collection n...
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ON FARM LIFE. THE NATIONAL ASPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ON FARM LIFE. ' ''.!: ' THE NATIONAL ASPECT. Among the many questions on which President Roosevelt . has seen fit to express himself wo find that ho has not forgotten to give some attention to farm problems. In Writing uno'n thin nnflst.inn vp cently he expressed ' /himself, in the. folio wing terms : — ' No nation has ever achieved permanent greatness unless this greatness was based on the well being of the great farmer class, the men who live on the soil, for it is upon their welfare,' material and moral, that the vrolfare of tho rest of the nation ultimately rests. In the United States, dis regarding certain sections and taking the nation as a whole, I believe it to be true that the farmers in general are better off to-day than ever they were before. We Americans are making great progress in the development of our agricultural resources.. But it is equally true ;hat the social and economic institutions of tho open country are not keeping pace with the developm...
HOW TO GROW YOUNG AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
HOW TO GROW YOUNG AGAIN. Dr. J. L. Nascher has discovered that rejuvenescence — getting young again — depends primarily upon in creased mental activity. This in turn increases and stimulates our physical activity. The most potent of the men tal stimulants are psychic — youthful companions, change of scene and resi dence, complete change of mode of living. We decry the old maid who dresses as a young girl and seeks her companions among the young. One of them said she felt young because she tried to feel young by dressing and acting as a young person. She knew the secret of rejuvenescence. We all want to live long, yet we adopt the mode of life, which shortens the periods of development and matur ity, and then try to retard the last or declining period. In the hurry and ac tivity of present city life the rest is hot commensurate, with the work which necessitates it, while recreation itself is intensified until it becomes exhausting work. Instead of taking mild physical exercise, such ...
FROM BOUDOIR TO KITCHEN. The Touch of Needlework. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
FROM BOUDOIR T^ KITCHEN. By 'Hypatia.' The Touch of Needlework. The touch of hand embroidery on our apparel seems to promise to be even more marked in winter than it is now, for its vogue is gaining, not waning. The influence of the Rus sian and the Egyptian modes are re sponsible in a big measure for this, but as the year goes on the Russian in fluence will be strongest. Therefore it is not surprising to hear that some where or other on all the autumn cos tumes at 'home' appears a little touch of Russian cross-stitch, an ? or namentation which is always acknow ledged to be most effective. The col orings are usually rather primitive, and are rarely more than two — black and red, blue and red, blue and black, etc. — but they are distinctively char acteristic. The Danish embroidery, something similar in style, will also be used, and all -kinds of Oriental } stitchery, with the full though dull Oriental colorings. This seems characteristic of the em broideries of the moment, the dull a...
ILL-ADVISED PHILANTHROPY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
ILL-ADVISED PHILAN THROPY. A benevolent friend, with more money than judgment saw, on a cold afternoon recontly, a tall, handsome,* and sad coking man gaze darkly over tho Thamos 3mbankment. She watohed him for some length of time. Her growing sus picions became certainty. He contem plated suicide. Would she be in time with her half-crown, .and would ho take 't? He did take it. ' Madam,' he said, jazing at her with lustrous, far-away '.yes, ' yon have saved mo from what my oul loathes.' ' What is that, my poor nan ?' ' Work, madam.'
A Wily Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
A Wilv Parson. The Rev. Mr. Wright, who had a living iu the West of England, re fused to read the Athanasian Creed, though repeatedly desired to do so by his parishioners. They complain ed to the Bishop, who ordered it to be read. The Creed in question is ap pointed to be said or sung, and Mr. Wright accordingly on the following Sunday thus addressed the congrega tion:— 'Next follows Athanasius's Creed, either to be said or sung, and with Heaven's leave I'll sing it. Now, clerk, mind what you're about!' ' After this they both struck up, and sang it with great glee to a foxhunt ing tune, which, having previously been practised, was well performed. ?The scandalised parishioners again met and informed their diocesan of what they called the indecorum, but the Bishop said that the pastor was right, for it was so ordered, in. conse quence of which they declared that they would dispense with the Creed in future.
ORIGIN OF THE HANDSHAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
ORIGIN CF THE HAND SHAKE.' ' Many and 'varied are the opinions iiven a3 to the origin of the hand-shake. The' mo3t recent explanation is that our primordial ancestors were suspicious and ?;-:caoheron5. Except in the small circle -ftlie family or tribe, every man was looked upon a3 an enemy, and was ap oroached warily. It is supposed that the ?f.Ttfim of shaking hands originated in the holding of right haiids as a'guarantee ajaiaet the Ireacheroiisojse of a weapon.

WHY KOREANS HATE JAPS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910
WHY KOREANS HATE JAPS. Tne' trouble between Japan and Korea, of which the latest outward sign is the assassination of Prince Ito, goes ,back a good deal further than most people suspect. When the reign of the great Elizabeth was drawing to a close, Japan was ruled by Hideyoshi, a gentleman with imperial, ambitions worthy of a Napoleon. j.j.c iuuujui mat jayau was too small for him, so he decided to take Korea under his wing. That the Koreans were quite content without his pater nal guidance made no difference what soever. Japanese troops poured into Korea, and for several years there was continuous fighting, in which China took the side of Korea. The cities of Korea were sacked and the country laid waste, and it was not until the death of Hideyoshi that the Japanese returned home, heavy with plunder. Ever since that time Korea has re garded Japan with much the same feel ing that,. Finland has towards Russia, or Alsace-Lorraine towards Germany. ' It was partly the attempt of Korea to...
