THE REPORTER—AN ASSIGNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
THE REPORTER-AN ASSIGN MENT. The fifth house from the corner in this row Little black tents against the night sky's indigo. Beside the door I flashed a match to find The number right-and sudden blank ness took my mind! I hesitated, peering from the gloom Beneath the shade into the yellow lighted room, Curious justly, in my errand's name: And then I blamed myself, though I was not to blame. A woman sat beside a table spread For one, but suppertime was hours past; her head Bent low for listening, while at her thighs A sleepy child was frowning, gouging fists in eyes. The woman stirred; I saw her young, ?worn face. She glanced, impatient, puzzled, at the empty place. I gulped and knocked. God knows the words I said! I asked her. somehow, if she knew that he was dead! -Paul Scott Mowrer in January "Smart Set."

DELIVERED SPEECH TELEPHONE. President Wilson lias created a pre cedent In speech-making which will probably be imitated by future Presi dents and prominent politicians, who, through lack of time for travelling, are unable to fulfil many engagements.

DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES. FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
DOOKIE COLLEGE NOTES. TOR THE MONTH OF APRIL, Good progress is boiug made with the work. Up to date 479 acres have boon sown. The ground jiB in good condition, and every day now is of value. Moro rain is, however, required. Tho laud on portion of the collcge farm is of such a nature that it bjemks up very finely when cultivated, aud tho surface cakes readily after rain. In somo places this is preventing tho young plants from showing through, and unless rain falls soon some loss may occur. Even now the germination is rather irregu lar, owing to this laud orust. This is one of tho disadvantages of cultivation, as it makes tho soil too line. It has boon found necessary iu some eases to break tho surface with tho weedor. Light harrows would answer tho purpose probably as well. Great interest is being shown by the students in tho driling. A gold medal is given for tho beat drilling every year, and it is counted as the higl.e3t honor to win this. This year tho competition is excep tionall...
Improving His Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
Improving His Mind. (The gentleman who had dined at his club arrived home in the small hours, and wavering into the library, adjusted the light and, picking up a heavy tome, settled himself for a studious hour. Presently he felt, rather than saw, his wife standing at the door; he exaggerated his attitude of close attention to his volume. 'Do you know that it's past four o'clock, James?" she'addressed him. "You'd better put out the light and come to bed." "Now, m' dear," he said impatienti ly, "g' 'way, I'm studying-improving my inin'. G' 'way." She stood for a moment eyeing him intently. "Please-please close up that suit-case and come to bed," she implored.

WAYSIDE WINNOWINGS. [By A BOHEMIAN] "There was a Bound oE revelry by night "at the military ball last week. The evening zephyrs were laden wilb masio. Outside the hall our loc.il wind instrumentalists strove for tbe nonce to emulate the sparkling bril liance of a crack regimental band. A wheezy barrel-organ, in the bands of a merry-go-round proprietor, -had the ostentatious effrontery to question ably add its quota to tbe dulcet harmony. Inside the building our .military horsemen cavorted to the captivating strains of piano and violin. The brave lads volleyed and thundered through the dances with all the martial ardor of untried war riors engaged in a mimic campaigD. And those who obeyed tbe regulations and wore military boots beat a roof raising tattoo on the floor so long es the cry prevailed, " On with tbe dance . * *. To those in tbe neighborhood who were endeavoring to win the goddess Sleep the echo of the "number nines'' resembled the booming of distant cannon, with an occasio...

CRANKS WHO HIDE MONEY. Bank-notes Concealed in Books Among the eccentricities of the rich, the passion for always possessing enormous sums of ready cash is sure ly one of the most extraordinary. A former Lord Dysart one day asked a companion-nurse to go to town and get a cheque cashed- for him at the ! Bank of England. When she was ready to start the old peer sat down and | wrote a cheque for £100,000, and told her to be sure and see that she got I one note for the whole amount. j The cheque was duly presented, and i the Bank, having satisfied themselves I as to the nurse's authority for making such a request, suggested that a clerk should accompany her and hand the .C 100,000 note in person to his I lordship. After having done so the clerk told the peer that only three j such notes were in existence. "One," I he said, "we have at the Bank, an J other I have just handed to your Iord j ship, and the third, which some time : ago disappeared from circulation, we have never been able to...

DISEASE AS AN ACCIDENT. Of all the varied questions wbioh the Workmen's Compensation Act has railed, the finest and most difficult of solution has certainly been tbe ques" lion whether or nob, and when, tbe contraction of a disease constitut'6 an accident. Generally speaking, in order to constitute an accident, the disease must be one tbe contraction of which can be definitely fixed in point of time as an event). For instance, a work man was employed to open and sort bales of Persian wool. While so en gaged his eye beoame infected with anthrax, which necessitated an opera tion, from which he died. The disease was caueed by a bacillus alighting on his 6ye.

THE END OF HIS TETHER [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
THE END OF HIS TETHER By IAN GROSVENOR. A Failure! The reflection was far from being a pleasant one to Roderick Massing hara. As a matter .of fact, it came near to irritating him Into a completo loss of temper, as, lounging in the seat of a deck chair, he v.'atched the blue outlines of Table Mountain fade away on the horizon. "Two yeara wasted," he muttered violously out from between hie teeth. "Two years all but a month. It's the first time in my life I've been 30 com pletely up against a rock." "Frankly, I had expected better luck at your hands. When I told you the nature of the task confronting you I had excellent hopes of your success. You have helped the Yard on so many occasions and so brilliantly, that I believed you would have won through when so much depended on it." Massingham flung his cigarette im patiently over the side of the liner. Unconsciously, he had uttered his thoughts aloud. As a result, he had been more than a little surprised on hearing the quietly spoken repl...

INVERGORDON. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
INVERGORDON. At present we are experiencing beautiful weather ; warm days and cool nights, with a slight reminder, occas ionally, that froab is near at band. A good downpour of rain would prova most acceptable, as the crops are nearly all patchy, the hard crust which formed after the last rainfall preventing many of the young Bhoots from getting through. The weir ia now full, and a fair quantity of water ia passing over. No doubt many stock-owners further down the creek will be pleased, as in many cases all that remained in the oreek was liquid mud. Dame Rumor is once more at fault. The report in a recenb issuo that Mr R. N. M'Leod, of Naring, has been transferred to this Bchool is incorrect, aa Mr R J. Kennedy is the teacher appointed' Mr Kennedy will com mence duty here as soon da he is re lieved of his present charge.
