Loyalty Costs £10. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 March 1917
Loyalty Costs £10. The war will not be won by pageants or noisy demonstrations on the Stock Exchange,- but it will be won with men and money. Both are urgently needed at this most critical stage of the campaign, and families can supply money as well as men. No loyal person with £10 should hesitate to pay that price now. A £10 war bond will exhibit loyalty to the best traditions of the British race. It will pay for at least two rifles. It is a dangerous thing, when you ' have let slip an unfortunate remark, to try to cover up the blunder. i Mis. G. was talking with the wife of a prominent solicitor about her son's choice .of a profession. "I don't want him to be a lawyer," she said. "Why not?'""said the solicitor's wife. "I think there is nothing much finer than the legal profession for a bright boy." - "Well," said Mrs. G., bluntly, "a lawyer has to tell so many lies." Then it dawned on her that she was talking to the wife of a lawyer, so she hastily added: "That is-er-to I be a goo...

THE EFFECT OF SURROUNDINGS [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 March 1917
THE EFFECT OF SURROUNDINGS The ideals and beliefs that gradual ly become part of a man's nature ore studiously described in a book, "Child and Country," by Will Levington Com fort. Speaking of early training in a big city, the author says "The city, intolerable as it is in itself-in its very nature against the growth of the body and soul of man after a certain time- is nevertheless the chief of those urging forces which shall bring us to simplicity and naturalness at the last. Man hood is built quite as much by learn ing to avoid evil as by cultivating the; aspiration for the good. "Just as certainly os there are thousands suffering for the freedom of spaces, far advanced in a losing fight of vitality against the cruel ten sion of city life, there are whole races of men who have yet to come and pass through this terrifying com plication of the crowds, which brings a refining gained in no other way. "A great leader of men who has never met the crowds face to face is inconceivable. He...

ESTIMATING DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 March 1917
ESTIMATING DISTANCES. Readers must have noticed how dif ferent things look on a return journey from what they did on setting out. The scout must make himself familiar with both points of view, and keep looking back as he advances, so that on the return journey he will in no sense feel lost. Estimating the distance objects are away from him is another important duty of the scout, and in most armies prepared cards marked to a scale ar rived at by experiments are used. The rifle, too, is used for this purpose. The scout slips out the bolt and gaz"s down the bore. He has learned be forehand that a man on horseback is just contained within the circle of tho barrel when 300 yards distant. Again, he knows that at. roughly 600 yards a mounted man takes up hair the diameter, and so on; the smaller the man and horse the greater the distance away, that distance being easily calculated by dividing up the diameter of the rifle barrel.
SEVENTY-EIGHT TIMES AROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 March 1917
SEVENTY-EIGHT TIMES AROUND THE WORLD. There is a man in London at present who has travelled from Vancouver to London fifty-one times. As it is upwards of 10,000 miles there and back, this man has travelled over half a million miles in this way, or to the moon and back and then around the world. But though this seems a big feat for one lifetime, there is a retired commander of the Cunard Line who has crossed the Atlantic no fewer than 550 times, making 1,876,000 miles, or four times to the moon and back! Or, to put it another way, seventy-eight times around the world at the equator! Yet these records, wonderful though they seem, sink into insignifi cance when compared with the jour neys every human being on the globe takes in the span of threescore years and ten. The globe travels around the sun once a year, a journey, roughly, of 540,000,000 miles-as the crow flies! To this yearly journey add the daily journey on the spinning globe of 24,000 multiplied by 365, a total of S,760,000, ...

Patriotic Entertainment THERE was only a moderate attendance at Victoria Hall on Wednesday evening, when the usual monthly entertainment was held under the auspices of the local patriotic committee. Prior to commencing the brass band, under Bandmaster Rayner. played a number of selections in the street The programme presented proved a most interesting and vaiied one, and was accorded well-merited" praise- The first part took the form of variety, and in this each artist was a great success. Special recognition is due to Mr. Reg Moore for his four items; Mr C. G. Goodman for his two comic songs ; and Mr SimP50", for his character sketches.

Answered Correctly. At a Bar association meeting in Montreal, one of the legal lights told of a man named Bloomer, who,, though no lawyer, was appointed to a Gov ernment position in a Canadian city which, technically, must be filled by a lawyer.
