PROFESSIONAL UNDRESS. "Hello, doctor!" "Good morning, Judge!" "How's everything with you, doc "All right, only that I am having an argument with my neighbor over a fence between our properties. He : claims it is s.o high as to shut oil light and air from him, and threatens to ; sue me if I don't lower it." j "Interesting case, that." ! "I suppose he could sue me, couldn't he?" "Oh, certainly? But you could ap peal, and all that, you know, and carry the matter up through the courts inter minably. It would make an absorbing piece of practice." "But, judge, now, as man to man, tell me one thing. Just advise me as a man and not as a . lawyer. What would be the simplest way out of the argument?" "Tear down the fence." • "Much obliged." "Not at all. Now, maybe, you'll give me a chance at you. For the last couple of days I've had a dull pain in or near my stomach. Doesn't seem to get any worse or any better." "Um-m-m-m-ha!

THE STORY OF AN INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 March 1906
THE STORY OF AN INVENTION. Tlie struggle of Lyman Blake, chron icled in the New York "Press," Is no new experience with inventors, but the success is an unusual sequel. Far oftener the inventor sees anoilier grow rich on his cherished idea, while he himself lives and dies a poor man. Blake went to New York in the lat ter part of the sixties. He had inven ted a machine for attaching the up pers of women's shoes to the soles. With a few dollars in his pocket, and a large fund of faith and expectation as capital, he arrived in the city and put up at the Astor House, then a fashionable hotel. Joyously and •confidently he started out to show his machine to capitalists and manufacturers. The first man he approached dismissed him with a curt "No, I don't think we care to take it up. Good day!" His confidence dwin dled away, but he never lost faith in the value of his invention. His money was gone, and he began to live on credit. His dreams of being a million aire grew fainter and fainter. ...

GOOD TEMPER. What [?]t is, and How to Cultivate [?]t. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 March 1906
G'OOD TEMPER. What It le, and How to Cultivate It. If you buy a steel implement which does its duty without breaking, or losing its shape, you know it has been well-tempered. Some implements, as foils, you require to be pliable and resi lient. Others, as razors, should not bend; they need only a keen edge. While some, as scythes, need great strength to resist fracture. Now, our thinking ancestors selected this term "temper," denoting the abil ity of metal under trial, to denote the ability of the human mind under trial. And a markedly wise selection they made. The most important of the truths we must keep in mind is that good temper is not weakness. On the con trary, it is power. This is true of steel, and true of human nature. When the latter is concerned the term does not express willingness to submit to in juries. It does not mean self-suppres sion. It is compatible with "feven exag gerated pride, and boundless ambition, for it means merely calm self-control. The circumstances of...
HOW £30 HELPED CHRISTIANITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 March 1906
HOW £30 HELPED CHRISTIANITY. When Livingstone went to Africa, there was a Scotchwoman named Mrs, MacRobert, quite advanced in life, who had saved up £30, which she gave to the great missionary, saying: "When you go to Africa, I want you ta spare yourself exposure and needless, toil : by hiring some competent body-ser . vant, who will go with you wherever J you go, and share your sacrifices and i exposures." I With that money he hired his faith ! ful servant, known as Sebalwe. When the lion had thrown Living I stone down, and crushed the bones of : his left arm, and was about to destroy him, this man, seeing his critical posi tion, drew off the attention of the lion to himself, thinking that he would save his master at the cost of his own life. The lion sprang at him, but just at that moment the guns of other com panions brought him down, and Living stone's life was prolonged for thirty years. Surely, through all these years, that noble Scotchwoman, as well as the servant, should he ...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 22 March 1906
"FOR SALE." In the great stream of human kind that constantly surges to and iro about the Brooklyn bridge occurs many a pathetic scene. One of them attracted not a little attention from the crowd that pushed and scrambled for the stairways during the rush hours re cently, says the "New York Commer cial." A. trim little old woman with a motherly face and rusty but scrupu lously neat black garb wandered sadly back and forth, leading by a short chain a handsome Irish setter dog. About his neck was a pretty little sil i ver collar, and from it hung the mute advertisement "For Sale." The dog clung closely to his mistress, his great brown eyes at times turning to her appealingly, as though he knew why they were there and was pleading to be taken home. Every line of the sweet old face, the tidy dress, with its neat patchcs here and there, and the faded shawl, a relic of better times, "spoke with" eloquence of refinement in the T?ast that ffly fitted hjif.Júir^JhíL hard buffets p£-raddad~fo...

Unintentional. A minister who had been out «JI day; visiting called on an old damefwell known for her kindness of hearland hospitality, and begged the favorof a cup of tea. ' This was heartily accorded, and the old woman bustled about getting ont the best china, and whatever rural deli cacies wore at hand, to honor, her un expected guest. As the minister sat I watching these preparations his eya ¡ fell, on four or Ave cats devouring cold : porridge under the table. "Dear me, wha^^^taaben^Ji^^üs/' I he observed. I

Bismarck and the Peasant. I One day during the war between I Prussia and Austria, Bismarck found ' a company of Prussian soldiers flog* ¡ ging an Austrian peasant. "Hello! what's up here?" he In quired. "He's been calling the Prussians names," shouted a dozen soldiers. "That's a lie," shouted back the pea« sant, who did not recognise the Chan* cellor; "I only called Bismarck names." There was a roar of laughter, and everyone looked Inquiringly at Bis marck, who laughed a little, too», as he said, "Let him go. Others and gre^tKc" than he have done the same."
The Motor Ward. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 29 March 1906
Th« Motor Ward. The distinguished visitor had been shown all the points of interest in the big lunatic asylum. As he was leaving, the head doctor, as an afterthought, , asked, "Would you like to visit the Motor Ward?" Giving a delighted "assent, he was led into a spacious apartment appar ently untenanted, though lined with rows oí beds. "But where are tne patients?" he ex claimed in amazement. "Patients?" replied the medical su ! perlntendent. "They're all here. T!hey i arc under the beds tinkering with the ! springs."
ONLY HALF-WELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 29 March 1906
ONLY HALF-WELL. It is tho easiest thing in the world to Call into a fashion of semMnvaUdism, and to declare oneself not up to the mark, when one has slept badly, or over-eaten, or worked too hard. Num bers of people do not work hard enough, with tho result that they suf fer from ennui, which, in itself, leads ; to disease. I It should be considered one of life's I solemn duties to keep well if one can, I and disease should be considered a ; great misfortune. To be half-well is to ; be half-equipped for the battle of life, to be only half-ready to do one's share : of the daily task. People who are i half-well are seldom in good spirits, : and their melancholy acts as a wet blanket on the good cheer of others. When it cannot be ¡helped, this state of things must be accepted. When it can, to yield to it is »most a sin. She (shyly "Fifty miles an hour bow,\ hissed the daring motorist, as he gripjert the steering-wheel still more firmly > 'Are you brave enough to stand it?" i "Yes; I ...
BEE-KEEPING. SUPERSEDING QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 29 March 1906
BEE-KEEPING. SUPERSEDING QUEENS. It should- be the aim o£ the beekeep er to supersede all old queens—that is, those that are past their prime. It should not be forgotten that in a sub tropical climate like ours queens age much faster than in eolder countries. In works 011 beekeeping published in thu_Northcrn Hemisphere, we read of queens being looked upon as good to the end of their third season, and no doubt this is correct, for in cold cli mates the queen does not lay for four or five months in the year, but In most parts of Australasia queens lay more or less all the year round, and consequently must exhaust themselves very rapidly. This fact leads me to believe that by the end of the second season a queen has seen the best of her days, and that the beekeeper will be studying his own Interests by super seding her at that age. It was long a puzzle to me why colonies from no ap parent cause became queenless during the winter, but after thinking over the matter and making notes, I c...

TRAFALGAR BRASS BAND. AN INNOVATION. The efforts being made to raise funds towards maintaining the Trafal gar brass band, by means of enrolling members at a nominal quarterly con tribution, are meeting with a satisfac tory response from the public.
