WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night and conflict; morning breaks at last. Know your man before you let his opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are ig norant is a great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not half so ef fectual. Everything that thou reprovest in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful does the tree of life bl...

YOU SHOULD BE DETER MINED. In rejecting the worthless and fre quently injurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDERS & SONS* PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not de ceived. Sander's Extract is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing, ! and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. Therefore, do not be misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thou sands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress your self more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called Extracts." Although they are adver tised for medicinal purposes, they are fit for mechanical use only, and some of them have proved qo injurious that a death has been directly ascribed...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS, o "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the boy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, and laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' says 'Bobs/ 'What's the matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, I can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you ' hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I suppose ...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 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 on as before. T...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, and asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two milts," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it; rather lonely here." "Isio, I can't say as I do. You see, 1 mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tbey foreclosed." The-stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving trampB and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There comes the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, ...

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. Many business men advertise only a certain seasons of the year, many pre ferring the fall of early spring. But the experience of advertisers who have made he subject a study is that persistent ad vertising is the best and returns more profit considering the outlay than adver tising by fits 8nd starts. It keeps one al ways before the public in a sense, and the prayer of the daily or weekly repeti tion of an advertisement is inestimable A French writer says that the first time a person sees an advertisement he hardly notices it; the second time, he remembers he has seen it before; the third time, he reads it; the fourth time, he wonders if it.meets his wants;-andthe fifth time, he buys the article. This, at least, is human nature. A single insertion of an adver tisement seldom produces much impres sion, but let that advertisement be re peated for a month or six months, and satisfactory results generally will follow People remember that they have seen it befor...

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

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er of Chillon," Is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the'Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated, in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Eyron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make - that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac counts of his political*a£itation. This poem" bears the remarkable title of "The ...

A HORSELESS TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

A HORSELESS TOWN. At the doors of Indianapolis there is to be the first truly horseless city in America, and—save, perhaps, for those places where oxen,, goats, cam els, or what not else furnish native and locomotive power—the first horse less city of the world. The actual construction work is well under way, and in two or three years there will be a complete town. The horse that tries to enter, says the "Motor," will be turned back as sternly as motorists used to be from the strip on the Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn. The man with the motor car may enter free as air. It is planned to make this city, which is named Speedway, an indus trial city devoted to the interests of the motor-car trade.
