Ironworkers' Wages Board. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
Ironworkers' Wages Board. (To the Editor.) ? Sir, — Allow me a little of your valuable space to express my great surprise at the action of the Ironworkers' Association in their choice for Wages Board representa tives. At a special meeting of that union on Wednesday night last the appointment of two representatives on the Wages Board came up for discussion. To my great sur prise, Mr. G. Dunn, of the Engine Drivers and Firemens' Association was one of the two selected — Mr. Ward, of the ironworks, being the other. Now, does this not strike you as rather a peculiar action for a union to take — that Js, to go outside their own comrades for a suitable representative on the board. Surely out of a membership of over 600 the members could find more than one suJtable for the position. I do not wish to infer that Mr. Dunn is not capable of the position, as I think he is a very good man in that capacity; but I take it as a slur on the Ironworkers' Association. Why pick out the Enarine Drivers ...
THE LAZY HEIR. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
THE LAZY HEIR. A man who was heir to a fortune at last acquired the wealth, and thereupon gave up all work, being certain that the only way to enjoy life was to be idle. So far from being happy, he was one of the most miserable of men. He lounged about, spent money like water, yet without getting any satisfaction from it, and before long he had spent all his fortune. Not long afterwards some thieves relieved^him of the other half, and so. he had to turn to and earn his living once more. Strange to say, with the return of work came a return of happiness, and be no longer regretted the loss of that which, be fore, he thought to be the thing of all im portance.

TWO PUPPIES AND A CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
TWO PUPPIES AND A CAT. I thought it quite an easy thing, To lead two pups, each on a string; But, going at a gentle pace, They saw a cat, and soon gave chase. I had to run, they went' so' fast; But when they caught her up at last, She dodged, and they .dashed after her ? All round my feet— I couldn't stir. I Round, round they rushed and wouldn't \ stop, . . ? [ Until I felt just like a top, | For I, alas, waa well 'wound tip' I .With strings belonging to each pup! Then, worst of all, they struggled free; The cat looked round to find a tree, But, catching sight of me instead, Took refuge, growling, on my head! —Leslie Mary Oyler, in 'Little Folks.'
