Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 18 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front or a log; cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. .A passing tourist stopped to chat, ond asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two m,iies," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "ISO, I can't say as I do. You see. I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred dollars. And I couldn't pay, so tVey 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 lenow if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps 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 bourn...

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 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 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. x Only for the cheerful does the tree ot life blo...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 18 April 1914

prison MASTERPiecesi 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, ami whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Purga...

When She Began To Think. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 18 April 1914

When She Began To Think. "Biddy," said Pat timidly, "did ye iver think o' marryin'''" "Shure now," aaid Biddy, looking de murely at her shoe—"shure now, the subject has niver entered me mind at all, at all." "It's sorry, Oi am," said Pat, and he turned away. "Wan minute, Pat," said Biddy soft ly. "Ye've set me thinkin'." The ignorance of the masses on ar tistic matters is appalling (said Mr. Walter Emanuel, speaking at a dis cussion on "Execution in Literature and Painting" at the Authors' Club recently) He was passing through one exhi bition recently when he saw a group of persons. One of them said, "Is it a droring?" The reply was, "No, stupid, it's an itching." A third person interrupted and said, "No, you are tooth wrong; it's a pas tille."

The Privileges Peculiar to Westminster School. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 18 April 1914

The Privileges Peculiar to Westminstei' School. An important articlo in Hie April Wiiulfor Ifitgezinc deals with the Westmins'er School, of which an inter esting account is given from the earliest times down to the present day, including an estimate of tho honorable position of Westminster in the scholastic world, and incidentally showing how many great statesmen and other public men have come out of Westminster to write their names large in the history of their country. Writing of the crrious old custom-", especially identified with school life and distinct from those of any other echot.l, the author f(iys :— "It is natural that Westminster, 1 standing,'as "it has been Paid, ' in the most sacred precinct of the Empire,' snnuld be a school of many privileges and tiadiiions of which it is justly proud. Two of these call specially for 110!:ce. At Coronations it has fallen to tho King's Scholars, certainly since that of James II., to represent tho people of England and confirm their ch...

Going Cheap. Some time ago a man was awaken- I ed In the night to find his -wife weep- I ing uncontrollably. I "My darling!" he exclaimed, "what | ia the matter?" « "A dream!" she gasped. "I have had such a horrible dream." Her husband begged her to tell it to him, in order that he might com fort her. After long persuasion she was induced to say this:— "I thought I was walking down the street, and I came to a warehouse where there was a large placard, 'Husbands for sale.' You could get beautiful ones for fifteen hundred pounds, or even for twelve hundred, and very nice-looking ones for a3 low as a hundred." The husband asked innocently:— "Did you see any that looked like me?" The sobs became strangling. "Dozens of them," gasped the wite, "done up in bunches like asparagus, and sold for ten shillings a bunch."

DYSPEPSIA AND COMMON-SKNSE. I The man or woman who is a victim of ^ I dyspepsia can't possibly enjoy anything like ! good hoa'th.

The drawbacks of a chemists' profession are the long hours, and having to listen all day long to other peoples' aches and pains —and no matter how dog tiTed we may get we cannot take a glass of anything, having always to keep a clear brain. Perhaps, after all, it's a good thing for us that we've to be so very careful, because it makes us turn to tea, and tea's as good a thing as anybody can drink— of course, when I say tea, 1 mean pure tea, and presume that it's not overdrawn in the making—now, as nice a cup of tea as anybody need ask for is Robur No. 1 Grade — don't stew it— let it draw just "five minutes "—no longer—that's the secret of a good cup of tea — you'll remember that, won't you J Tht Chemist.
