MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

MAKING FARMING PAY. We are au trying to make things pay, but we refuse to invest enough trains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some mxist have an immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the most profitable result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm. A young girl was going to make her first visit to a cousin in the country. At the station she was met by the cousin, and afte...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five naen, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went orf as before. ...

How Simple the Life! When Eve held forth in Paradise She found much pleasure in it, For when she did her Monday wash It only took a minute. And when the washing blew away She didn't fret or whine; She simply sauntered forth and picked New garments from the vine.

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

- ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. In the yes? 1828 there appeared in the streets of Nuremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy_ was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, Mjfcould not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, 'who was now about twenty-one years old, accord...

A Schoolboy Essay. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

A Schoolboy Essay. "A figgerative saying is—to keep the wolf from the door. It does not mean to keep a real live wolf from the door. A good instance is when the landlord comes for the rent. He knocks at the. door, and you keep aw ful quiet in the hope that he will think there is nobody in, and go away."

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your lips as it' they speechless were, an' dumb, When some hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Tiyk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty lau...

When She Began To Think. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye iver think o' marry in'?" j "Sliure now," said Biddy, looking de murely at her shoe—"shure now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all, at all." "It's sorry, Oi am," said Pat, and he turned away. "Wan minute, Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me thinlcin'." The ignorance of the masses on ar tistic matters is appalling (said Mr. Walter Emanuel, speaking at a dis cussion on "Execution in Literature and Painting" at the Authors' Club recently) < He was passing through one exhi bition recently when he saw a group of persons. One of them said, "Is it a droring?" The reply was, "No, stupid, it's an itching." A third person interrupted and said, "No, you are both wrong; it's a pas tille."

Going Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 18 April 1914

Going Cheap. Some time ago a man was awaken ed In the night to find his wife weep ing uncontrollably. "My darling!" he exclaimed, "what is the matter?" , "A dream!" she gasped. "I have had such a horrible dream." Her husband begged her to tell it to him, in order that he might com fort her. After long persuasion she was induced to say this:— "I thought I was walking down the street, and I came to a warehouse where there was a large placard, 'Husbands for sale.' You could get beautiful ones for fifteen hundred pounds, or even for twelve hundred, and very nice-looking ones for as low as a hundred." ! The husband asked innocently:— "Did you see any that looked like me?" The sobs became strangling. "Dozens of them," gasped the wife, "done up in bunches like asparagus, and sold for ten shillings a bunch."

III. Tile train was punctual at the ter minus, and it was just a quarter to twelve when the taxi-cab set them down at the Princes Hotel. Hugh was very well known to the people there, and he engaged a suite of rooms immediately and sent Leila up to them. His excited manner alarm ed her not a little, and when he told her Uzat he must see some of his friends but would be back iSefore mid night, she knew that the true drama of her journey was about to be made known to her. Desdy was very tired by this time, and she put him to bed at once. The suite of rooms which Hugh had en gaged was the best in the hotel, and its magnificence set the boy wonder ing. He prattled incessantly of what the engine had said to him, and what the ships had been doing—asked about the great cluster of electric lights in the sitting-room, ana was .delighted at the little lamp by his bedside. When Leila had given him a drink of warm milk and some 'biscuits he fell asleep directly, and she sat by him, holding his h...

The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material things were themselves conscious of fatigue. IThey rolled from station to station to the accompaniment of hissing steam and tired voices. There was no moon, but the northern lights shimmered upon che sleeping fielde and discovered an horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and lie got into the carriage manfully and sat down with an air of authority good to see. The excitement had waked him thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come ibaclc? Was Lally still frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell | him, <but did not make much of a job ; of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy —to-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, old chap; you must try to sleep."

CHAPTER X. Upon the Road to England. I. It was not dark when she went down the great drive towards the sea road, and the Forth Bridge could still .be discerned far away at the narrows of the estuary. Behind her lay the gloomy pile of Aberfeldy. Castle; looking just the same SS it had done at the hour of dawn just five days ago. Much had •happened in those intervening hours. She had heard and answered the story of a man's love; had been offered a home and had refused it; had been in vited to become the mistress of all that splendid domain and had answered that she dare not. Now she was just i.eila Shane again, going out friend less into the world, and knowing not what liSuse w"ouldvharbor her, • tiefe'dy was gr'eafTy excited by this [ •' I | journey at nightfall, just as he had been at NewcasJJe when they went aboard the yacht.

Footmen in the halls below walked with the measured step of those who have found an oc cupation again after many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to her own cell during these hours of prescribed carnival, but he would not hear of it. "You owe me that much," he said. "You must save me from the tigers." She made no answer, and they en tered the great hall together. There were guests already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy since lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she went up the great stair case from the garden. lie had been playing at tramways with the Archdeacon, and that vener able functionary rose from the floor with knee3 whicH^ore witness...
