A BROAD HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 21 August 1915
A BROAD HINT. Familiarity with modern weapons has not bred contempt in the minds of a certain native tribe, as the fol lowing story will show. During the commission of a certain cruiser on the African coast a few years ago, the following incident oc. curred. which went far in impressing the natives concerned with a sense of the .might of the British navy. A hill tribe of Arabs had been con tinually molesting "friendlies" of the coast villages, so it was deemed ad visable to teach the troublesome hill men a lesson. After several skirmishes ashore, a number of influential chiefs of the marauding tribe fell into the hands of the bluejackets, and were taken on board the cruiser. What their expectations were re garding the fate awaiting them is not known, but, as is generally the case with such captives, they were treated with every consideration, the authori ties probably thinking to attain more Influence amongst the tribe by friend ly demonstration to its chief than by harsh methods. S...
HUSBANDS WHO NEVER SPEAK TO THEIR WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 21 August 1915
HUSeANDS WHO NEVER SPEAK TO THEIR WIVES. During a recent painful lawsuit it was stated that, owing to family dif ferences. a husband had not spoken to his wife for close upon fifteen years. This case is not unique, for the Rev. Fred Hastings, in his remin iscences, "Memories of a Million Miles," tells an extraordinary story of an old mail-car driver he met in Nova Scotia. The old man was known as "Old Tokins." who never spoke to his wife for seventeen years The tale on the road was this: One day he went home much earlier than usual, and, because his dinner was not ready, he began to upbraid his wife She answered him warmly, and he went out, saying, "I'll never speak to you again." He kept to his resolution. They lived together just the same, but he never spoke, writing his wants and wishes on a slate which always hung by the fireside. If he desired to have meat or any article of apparel, or had any news to tell her, he wrote it down and left it on the slate. There was a pathetic end...
Both Superstitious. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 21 August 1915
Both Superstitious. "For downright idiotic. supersti. tious, weak-minded, gullible credulity," growled Judkins, "recommend me to a woman! Gave away a pair of my trousers to an old pedlar to charm warts off the children's hands! Ma dam, are you aware that this Is the twentieth century and not the Mid* die Ages?" "It does seem a little silly," said Mrs. Judkins mildly; "but I've heard of such things being done. You know those trousers, John, were the pair you tore on the lawn-mower the other day and threw aside." "It's not the trousers, madam; it's the childish. imbecile, fatuous pueril ity of the thing. Besides, I left a hare s-foot in one of those pockets, madam, that I've been carrying for rheumatism the past three years." A sluggard takes a- hundred steps because he would not take one .in due time. It does not follow that a woman is a, clever artist oecause she knows how to paint. The chief characteristics of the poor are extraordinary patience and ezt' ordinary shyness,

"Who proposed this votel of cen sure?" asked- the mayor. • '"'I did," said a -councillor, etanding up. "You did,- did you?" continued hi , interrogator, stepping from his presi dential chair to the unfortunate mem-: her; "then take .that." . With these words .the mayor smote his enemy in the right eye and felled him to the ground. "Who seconded this resolution?" he again -asked, quietly resuming his posi tion.

INTHALA. A KAFFIR TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 28 August 1915
INTHALA. A KAFFIR TRAGEDY. A glorious African mool was rising. The veldt lay silvered beneath .its light, and the bush and trees seemed to glisten with frost. But it was not frost-the..air was humid with the heat of a long day just past. "It had oeen very hot, and in a low mud hut a Kaffir girl had lain panting. Now and Again she reached for the cala bash of cool, sweet water near her heap of rugs and skins. A little child lay by her side, a chub by, jolly gttle black baby. Sometimes it opene" its black eyes end stared with fixed gravity at the mother. Per haps in its little heathen heart it wondered why this big mother so pas sionately strained it to her breast, to the great discomfort ahd inconveni ence of the tendbr little body; and why that breast shook with great tear ing sobs, stifled and suppressed though they were. Poor little pic canin! Thy mother, the beauty of her tribe, has for ever disgraced her self in the eyes of her kinsmen, in giving birth to thee and thy twin sis t...
