Those Commissions. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
Those Commissions. A dog once bit a boy's leg, so the latter's father promptly sued the owner of the animal. After much ! wrangling the case was submitted to an independent inquiry committee, which many years after gave their decision as follows: - "We find the dog partly responsible for the bite-not the owner, whom we have established has no cannibalistic tendencies. Considering the inde pendent action of the animal, which pointed to bones in the vicinity, it is to be regretted that the canine intelli gence did not consider the portion of leg between it and the said bones. "The boy is not guilty of nogligence in getting in the dog's way, and we should compensate him, only he is now a man, and it was a boy who was bitten. Litewise he has forgotten which leg suffered. "We are inclined to censure the dog for careless discrimination, but it is dead, so we unanimously conciude no one is guilty, except the ratepayers, who, having derived considerable en tertainment from the proceedings, ...
JUST MAKE-BELIEVE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
JUST MAKE-BELIEVE. It there isn't any pleasure Waits for you beside the way, If there's not a thing to grin at In your journey day by day, It you've got excuse for kicking Don't you do it! Don't you do it! Just be happy, anyhow. Just be happy, just be happy; Take the fiddle and the bow. Snuggle it against your shoulder, Limber up, and let 'er go, Till the world is full of music, And there's joy in every string; j Till you get all outdoors laughing, j And you make the echoes ring. It's a duty you are owing To the world to shake your feet, And to lift your voice in singing, Till the music fills the street; If th9 world is dark and gloomy, And you haven't got a friend, It's your duty to dissemble, It's your duty to pretend. If you meet the world n-grinning, Then the world will grin at you. You can laugh the clouds to flinders, Till the blue sky glimmers through; If you just pretend you're happy, ! With your whole heart in the bluff, Then, almost before you know it, | You'll be happy, s...

Going to Waste. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
Going to Waste. "Everyone v.'lio goes to Niagara," says- n novelist wlio" lias receiitly come from America, "hears some ab surd, ridiculous and inept remark there. _ You stand and gaze at the' falls,'- profoundly moved, and then,. of a sudden, something is said, and tile effect of the grandeur goes for ever. "The day I first saw Niagara a man touched my arm as I looked up at those white waters. I turned to him. He had the smile of the confirmed joker. " 'It seems a shame,' he said, 'to see all this going to waste.' "'What are you?' I said, 'an elec trical engineer?' " 'No,' he answered, 'a milkmari.'" American people have a very high appreciation of the humor of English men, and have been specially tickled by a story Colonel Cody used to tell. 1-Ie said that some years ago an Eng lishman who had never been in tlae&lt; West before was his guest. They were riding through a Rocky Moun tain canyon one day, when suddenly a tremendous gust of wind came swooping dowu upon them and ...
Quite So. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
Quite So. "And now, ladies and gentlemen," said .the guide of the local museum, "we come to the Armoury. On our right we 'ave the identical knives with which the robbers fought when they took the Babes into the Wood. On our left we 'ave the axe with which Sir Walter Raleigh was be'eaded. Next to it we see one of Dick Tur pin's pistols; and, again, next to that, we 'ave the shield which the Black Prince used in the Crimean War. 'Ere we 'ave the bow and arrow used by the Doolc of Wellington at the battle of Agincourt, and, passing along a little farther, we see the actual sword with which Balaam slew the ass." "Just a moment," said one of the party. "I didn't know Balaam had r. sword. I thought he only wished for one." "Quite so, sir-quite so! And if you'll only give me time to finish and not "interrupt, I was just going to add that this is -the very one he wished for."
Each in His Little Cot. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
Each in His Little Cot. The scene was the club-room; the hour advanced. Serious, gloomy, cheerful, elated were the earnest faces of the talkers by turn, as the argu ments for and against came thick and fast. And the subject under debate-"Do Fish Sleep?" That was all; but it was sufficient to keep them at it till a late hour of the night, while patient ly waited their respective wives at home. So fiercely waged the controversy that it burnt itself away. There came a lull; most of the debaters were play ed right out. It was then that the "cheerful idiot" who had played the listener's role, chipped in. Rising from his roomy arm-chair, where he had lain unob served, he stretched, yawned, then spolce: "Gentlemen, the hour is late; I, for one, must hie me to my cot. Do fish sleep? I do not know. But, if tliey don't, why river-beds?"

IF THINGS WERE REVERSED. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 30 March 1917
IF THINGS WERE REVERSED. The dogs had a meeting and decid ed that they needed core amuse ments. "One of the best things I know," said a greyhound, "is to teach some man how to do tricks." This owakonod general interest. The greyhound was asked how it could be done. "Fortunately," he replied, " it is comparatively easy, owing to the law, which enables us to do about anything we please with regard to a man. We can torture him to death by starvation or can make his life a hell on earth." "But," objected a cocker spaniel, "is it necessary to do this in order to train him to do amusing tricks? Can t you get the same result by kindness?" This made the greyhound growl with pleasure. "My dear fellow," he replied, "you don't quite understand. It is largely an economic question. In order to make any money out of a trained man we must teach him by the shortest and most direct method. There is nothing, like starvation and terror to bring about results. Suppose you wnnt to teach a man how to cli...

"The Loyal Leadswing ers was well on in that act, and a very pretty little do it was. No end of a joyous rag, and yours truly was well in the spotlight on 'that glorious occasion." "Yes, I remember it very well," I said. "1 believe the Leadswingers advanced over broken ground amid a perfect hail of bullets and after a stiff hand-to-hand scrap drove the en emy out of It flying. Isn't that so?" "No, my" son; Bully Beef Corner was captured not at the point of tlio bayonet, but at the point of my tongue. Otherwise the account is fairly correct. "The facts of the case were as fol lows, see that wet, see that dry, cut iiiv throat before I tell another lie.
