JAPANESE LETTER FROM A MOTHER TO HER SON. The Vienna correspondent of the "Odesskaya Lestk " sends the con tents of several Japanese letters which have been published in one of the Viennese papers. The following beautiful letter from a Japanese mother to her son, who is now studying in Vienna, is specially worthy of perusal. This loving parent writes as follows :-"3My Dear Child --Do not trouble yourself if you should now less frequently receive news of the war, which has caused here the great est excitement. Your father often says we ought to write to you oftener frons home; hut I think the contrary, and that we should not now spoil you with letters; for if you do not receive lotters for a long time, which is quite possible during the war, then you will commence to trouble yourself without necessitv and will not be able to give your mind entirely to your studies at the University, on which we have all placed such great hopes. Yesterday we received the news of the destruction ,f the...
Books and Bacon. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
Books and Bacon. A miner, who was proud of his boy's attainments at school, one even ing Dicked up a home-lesson book and read from It a quotation which ran like this: "Some books shonld be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digestcd.--Bacon." Turn ing to his boy, he said: "Vhat's this, sonnie? Thou doesn't eat books at school, does tha? I know you are very clever, billut you cannot do those nannygoat tricks, I'm sure. I'll warrant that'll be one of those printer's errors, sonnie." "Oh. no, father," said the boy. "Me taphorfcally speaking, we eat books." "Now, you cannot diddle me like that," said the father. "I didn't go to school very long, but I ken that's one of those printer's errors. Why, son nle, can thou not see?. He's put the word 'Bacon' in the wrong place. It should be, 'Some bacon should be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digested.'" The higher a man climbs in the world, the more people will scol! if he should lose his gripupon the rungs and tumble o...

Knew What He Was About. A widower with five grown-up daughters created a sensation In hls own little circle by marrying a plain faced dressmaker and milliner, whom everyone had given up as a chronil old maid. "I'm afraid you're doing a rtok thing, Tom," one of his cronies deem ed It his duty to say, "There'll be heart-burgiing an' fealousy between them lasses o' yourn and your new wife. Moebbe theyl quarrel like cat an' dog from mornin' to night." "I can't help it, lad; It had to be done," was the elderly bridegroom's answer. "Those gals o' mine never nad a fair chance wP the young men, cos I couldn't afford to buy them the gay clothes and fal-de-rals which oth er women catch husbands with. Now I've married a woman who'll make their frocks and hats for love, knowing that the finer the feathers are the sooner she'll be rid o' the birdsl"

GUARDING STATE SECRETS, Every Forelgn Office in Europe s on the theory that an army of s' is constantly on the alert to stea; secrets, and Infinite precautions, Ltaken to baffle their efforts. Very shortly after the first use of blotting-paper It was discovered that it was quite possible to cause biotting-pads to give up Jealously nuarded secrets by simply holding It in front of a mirror. Long after all ilie commercial world had forgotten the existence of such a thing, the British Foreign Office u-,ed a sand shalker to dry its Important written documents.

OLD LOVE AND BURGLARY. A True Story. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
OLD LOVE AND BURGLARY. A True 8tory. Some time eto the wife of a mer chant was sudlenly awake~rnd In the nIhit by the rosrd olf fotsteps in her bedroom andr thet next mrres:t the light of a dark lantern flooded her face, so near that she colid atnsst feel the heat and tear the sulnlressed breathing of the intrudr. let hu.s band was fromnt home. :ut tile only person in the house except herself was a servant girl, who slept in the storoy beneath.

NURSES AS WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
NURSES AS WIVES. There is no doubt that a nurse ought to mnake the very best of wives: having an interest and an income of her own 'he is not likely to marry except uzider the influence of strong affection. All tile experience and training of hospital life go to develop oil that is best in a good woman. Grant this, andi grant that the "happy homs of England " are the main element of her power and her greatness, and it seems a pity to make matrimony an obnoxious subject to the unfortunate probationer. It is doubtless very annoying'tb the suthorities when they have trained a ;ood nurse, and she is fulfilling excel lently her position, that she should go ond throw them orer for som'e one mere oan. But with cdu: length of notice the nurse has time to reflect and the committee has time to fill her place; it is not difficult with so many women. eager for work to keep the gaps filled, snd the nation profits when the well rjained woman marries.

BOW-LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
e BOW-LEGS. There is a current popular belief that a child will grow out of his bow !egs, and for that reason treatment is nften neglected, to the little patient's litriment. It is true that there is a natural tendency to spontaneous straightening of bowed legs, but the tendency is frequently thwarted by the weight of the child. It is better, therefore, never to de pend upon Nature's healing efforts, but to assist these and accelerate them 'y properly conducted manipulationps, ohrch are made just as one would ,mraighten a bent stick. The mother ,hould carry them out under the doc tor's irLnstructions at regular hours three or four times a day. The child ought also to wear properly fitted braces to support the legs, and espe cially the knees, while it stands and runs ashout.

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
HOW GLAGIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers and Ice hergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? WVhen snow falls in the Polar re dions.- or at high altitudes, Mr?r. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience of young folks in the theatre of the Royal Geographical Society at burl ington Gardens, it does not u:elt, or it melts very little, even during ,'he summer. So the layers of sn ,, tre constantly Increasing. Wheu the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but onl a high tableland there is no schl es cape for it. But the snow, fallung year after year, does not build up . great snow mountain, because tihe lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This d~wnward motion is tha esaen tial feature in the glacier. First the grains of ice are no nigger than a pin's head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ann lug ger, and the large ones absorb the...
ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
ENTERTAINING. Fortunately, c- unfortunately, no on. goes constaetly to another per son's house unless it is made worth his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence has gone a long way towards making her task easy. It is not mean, but natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying a visit or accepting an invitation. We may go to a house to be interested in crnversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, see something we don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves with our visit. No one can with reason expect oth ed people to come and see them for more disinterested motives than they themselves are actuated by. After all, the affection which is bestowed with out asking anything in return can only be expected once or twice In a lifetime. I consider that entertaining is one of the most wholesome forms which a housewife's energies can take, pro vided she keeps it entirely subservi ent to 'her other home interests. To have a house of your own, and ...

LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Riches. whatever their charm and their vaine, are not a pana;cea for the evils of life ... Happiness depenlld on work, health, character, disposi Lion, training, andl a gr-eat many other things besides ilcome, and so fa;r a:s happiness is concerned, enough money, or somewhat less than enoul?hll, pluts os in just about as good a case to achieve it as though we acwere rich. To live our lives, to get out what.is in us, to do our share of the worldi's work and live brotherly with our fil lows--thbat is what wve are here for. If richles are a." incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dlnt. [If the chase after them illres us away from the fu;filment of our pri mary obligations to our Maker, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if. succeeding, we lose the Christmas out of our year, the Christmas spirit out of oulr lives.
THE TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Radyard CIlplng's "Eflo Travels Fastest Who Travels Alone." Who travels alone with his eye on the heights, Though he laughs in the daytime, oft weeps through the nights For courage goes down with the set of the sun, When the toil of the journeoy lis all borne by one. He speeds but to grief, though full gaily he ride. WVho travels alone without Love by his side. Who travels alone, without lover or friend, But hurries from nothing, to nought at the end; Though great be his wninnings, and high he his goal, He is bankrupt in wisdom, and. beg gared in soul. Life's one gift of value to him is de ni ed WVho tnravels alone without Love at his side. It is easy enough in this world to make haste If we live for that purpose; but thinllk of the waste! For life is a poem to leisurely read, And the joy of a journey lies not in its speed. Oh! vain his achievement, and petty his pride, ,ho travels alone without Love at hiij side.

THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
THE LADIES' COLUMN PHI'LOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money in hand can select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around the four walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there is. furniture andt frlrniiure, furnishing and furnishing. and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of siu ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, with each planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye Is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he wills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for -the purchaser, the household er is not by this assured a tastefully furnlshed home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer sh...

Good for the Quaker. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
Good for the Quaker. In describing his own wedding, the author of "A Retrospect of Forty Years" records the remark of a gulest, of which he says. "For genuine Qua ker wit this will be found hard to match. The .bridal couple received a Etriking salutation from a Quaker client of the bridegroom's, a shrewd dry goods merchant. Presented by an ausher, he surveyed the bride, whom he had never seen before, and then, with the utmost deliberation, proceed ed to say: "William, I think thy bride has shown more judgment In her choice than thoul hast" Fortunately, before the newly-mar rfied man could turn to resent this strange salutation, he continued as follows:- "Because it takes some penetration to discover thy good qualities, but hers can be seen at a glance." When~a man wishes to deprecliate another man he attacks lIs intell gence; he calls him a fool or an ldhr. But when a woman attacks a woman, s'e always gces for hler face.
