A Good Two Miles. After a hard day's work at manoen vres, a battalton of soldiers were marching wearily along a seemingly interminable country road, when they met a man on horseback. I say," said the officer in command, "how far is it to the next town?" "About two miles," was the reply. For another hour the soldiers tramped, and then met another strain ger. "How far is it to the next town?" he was asked. "A good two miles, I should say," was the reply. Another hour paseed, and then an other horseman was encountered. "How far?" he repeated, in answer to the same question; "oh, not far, only about two miles." "WVell," sighed the optimistic ofti cer, "thank goodness, we are holding our own, anyhow."

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." SFrom the time he emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until he was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath cona spent all his time at varfous posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those thirty years among the northern Indians and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then was, held h'mself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civllised life and the highest office In the gift of the Hud son Bay Company. there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to be overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string, of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The watchers were amazed: for to them the wash-line suggested only the pre...

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. You often hear a person complain of his head feeling heavy after a long sleep. As a metter'of fact, his. head is ronsiderabhly lighter, and his legs and fet just that mruch heavier, when he' gets up than Whenl he went"to bed: Experiments have shown that if a lman goes to sleep on a bed sus pelnded 'exactly .t" the middle point •of his weight his head legins, to tip rlowly up' and his feet go down. This is due to the fact that wlhen we sleep the blood in the brain goes oilf to':the other parts of the body. The moment the brain wakes to life again it draws the blood back. Another of the curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying to solve the mystery of sleep 'is that when one is fast asleep some part of his brain or several parts of it may at the sanme time he awake. A manl may walk, talk, sing, "or solve mathe mnatical 'problems, and yet at' the same time lh safely in the land of nod.: It seemsnL hard or inmpossible t...

GIGANTIC FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 27 May 1914
GIGANTIC FISH. ~-4- The year 101, will long be re inlemhered, among salmon anglers as that in which the biggesti soalmon caught in a Scottish river for 2"8 years was landed. The fish, which was caught in the 'Tweil towards the end of the year, srcaled 5.5311. four hours after being landed, and is the heavicst taken from that river since 1886, when one of 5711b. was caught by Mr. Prvnyor froui the IDfike of ltoxburghe's water. If the recently-landed fish had been weighed inmmediately after capture, it is estimated that the fish would hiave attained close upon 3571h., for the longer such a fish relluillns olt of the water the lighter it becomes. At all events, the Scotch 55-poun; der was the largest rod-killed 'sn?t mon of the Tweed since 1886, al though it shoulld be pointed out that a silon"n weiglhing 581b. was also taketi in the Altonl River, Norway. Anglers tell many thrilling stories of the struggles they have" to land a 401bOlh; or 501b. salmon, but it mnust ie tame sport compa...
