HOW TO TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

HOW TO TALK. Keep clear of personalities in conversation. Talk of things, ob jects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with persons. Do not needlessly report ill of others. .As far as possible, dwell on the good side of human beings. . . . There Is evil enough in man, God knows. But it is not the mission of every young man and woman to de tail and report it all. Keep the at mosphere as pure as possible, and fragrant with gentleness and char ity. If some people didnt' talk about what they were going to do, they .would have precious little to talk about.

It has water noaWir-.oll .. it., a "large part of It. "The population is about four and a-lialf millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language of its own, and if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible teBt of sobriety. It possesses consider able mineral weaiiu, but very little of it finds its way out of the country. "Gold has at times been discovered in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, but in both cases it has been found difficult to work. The best-known exports of Scotland are Harry Lauder and Scotch whisky, though sufficient of the latter is retained iu the country ta satisfy the needs of home consumption.

The Precise Man. "It looks like rain." "I beg your pardon." "I say it looks like rain." "What does?" "The weather." "The weather, my dear sir, is a condition. Rain is water in the act of falling from the clouds. It is'im possible that they should look alike." "What I meant was that the sky looked like rain." ''Equally impossible. The sky is the blue vault above ua—the seeming arch or dome that we call the hea vens. It does not resemble falling water in the least." "Well, then, if you are so thunder ingly particular, it lookB as if it would rain."1 "As if what would rain?" "The weather, of course." "The weather, as before stated, be* ,ing a condition, cannot rain." "The clouds then", confound you! I may not know as much 'about it as you do, but I've go£ enough sense to get in out of it, and you haven't," said the m&n, as he raised his um brella and walked away in a huff.

A LAKE OF SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 16 April 1914

A LAKE OF SOAP. One of Nature's marvels is to he seen in the north-east corner of the State of Washington. It is a lake which bears the name of Soap Lake, i and is three miles in length liy one mile in breadth. The water in the j lake tastes like a mixture of soap | and salt, and its peculiar properties are such that when the water is heat ed 110 soap is required for a bath, for as soon us the water comes in contact with the natural oil of the skin, and is gently rubbed, it forms beautiful lather. i The only drawback is that when applied to the liead, one's hair is apt to turn from its natural color to a ] dusty red, if not washed with fresh ! water. In other words, it bleaches. < the soda in the water no doubt be- < ing the cause of this. I The Soap Lake is well known 1 throughout America on account of ' its wonderful healing properties.
