PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "Tho Prison er of Chlllon," Is supposed to bo writ ton by Bonnlvard, tho Genevan pa triot, whilst ho was incarcerated in the Chntenn of Chlllon, on tho shores of the lake. But tho poem was really written at lightning speed whilst fiyron wns imprisoned by Inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten In gnol, undoubtedly, tho moat out standing being two of tho world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "Tho Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only thoso two hooks had bolonged to the literature of captivity they would liavo been sufficient to itmko that literature distinguished and immortal.

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities 10 the face, bo the thumb marks tne personality ot the hand, and Is an unerring index to a man's natural strength or weakness o£ character. The man with a long, straight thumb, square at the tip, possesses good mental capacity, and can al ways be relied upon to carry out successfully any work with which he may be entrusted. His temperament is even and judicial; he Is a born governor of men, overcomes difficul ties, carries himself with dignity, and by his ability to concentrate all his faculties upon the matter in hand, combined with his tenacity of pur pose, rapidly becomes a power among his fellows. If tlie thumbs be long, thick, and heavy at the tip, with the joints prom inent, a tyrannical and cruel nature is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely seliish standpoint. A short, straight thumb sliows ob Btlnacy and driving power. If very thick and heavy at the Up, a brutish, unreasoning disposition will be no ...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding 'is described by a traveller who was one of tlio 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 hor appearance. She was pre ceded by hor 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 men, chanted. Tlie priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The prleBt 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 on as before....

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

ONE OF THE GREATEST MY8TEniES OF HI8TORY. In tho year 1828 there appeared In tho streets of N'uremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon liis person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had boon 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, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "ICasper Mau ser," which ho had boon taught to re peat llko a parrot; nor did ho know tho name of a single object. By de grees ho related that he had spent all his lite in a dark "hole," where ho •■vas fed by a man every day, though lie could not describe him, owing to tho darkness In which ho lmd always seen him. At last Kasper Hausor was taken in charge by an English nobleman— .Lord Stanhope—and oducnted to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, who was now about twenty-ono years old, acc...

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

A CURIOUS PROCESSION. In the deep pine forests o£ Norway the wood-cutters sometimes find a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was made up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When' setting out on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and Beveral inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an incli in length, and barely wider than a fine needle, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned is enormous. Their pace is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpo...

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 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 wore, an' dumb. When some hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, 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 aro 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 itwas Ills laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned.
