LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. j Be good and you'll be happy—and probably poor. A well-bred child never reproves its parents in public. Give some men an inch of rope and they'll rope you in. To make things come your way it is necessary to go after them. Blessed is the man who doesn't give offence. Also lie's unusual. Some married men make ideal com panions—away from home. Flirtation is the best game for two tnat has ever been invented. There is no woman who does not believe herself an exception to" a rule. Marriage means a constant obliter ation of self, a constant "give up." Most people are like eggs—too full of themselves to hold anything else. A woman resents hearing her hus band abused. It is usurping her pri vilege. Delusions are like girls; we. don't care to hug them unless they are at tractive. Love is the only thing in the world, and women who can't get it have tea instead. It is no use bluffing unless you have something to bluff with; and then you have no need to. Happy indeed is the ...

THE BRIGHT SIDE. "Be an optimist!" The speaker was ex-President Taft, the scene a New Haven dinner. "Be an optimist! Emulate the poor old tramp! "A poor old tramp was plodding along during the first snow of the sea son. The gelid and moist air pierced through his flimsy rags. Ilis hands were blue with cold. Nevertheless he shuffled along cheerily enough, through the two inches of snow that covered the footpath! "And this poor old tramp, thus shuffling along, smiled optimistically and remarked: 'There's one good thing about snow: it .hides the holes in yer shoes.'"

NEVER MIND OUR TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

NEVER MIND OUR TROUBLES. Learn how to tell a story. A well told story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick-room. Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If you cannot see any good in the world, keep the bad to yourself. Learn to hide your pains and aches under a pleasant smile. Learn to meet your friends with a smile. The good-hu mored man or woman is always wel come, but the dyspeptic or hypochon driac is not wanted anywhere, and is a nuisance as well.

KEEP ON KICKING! [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

KEEP ON KICKING! T\vo"frogs one day—so runs the tale— Went out to reconnoitre; Wanting something to commandeer To make their belts feel tighter. T''oy fell—but how 1 cannot tell il did not see them do it)— Into a pail of buttermilk, And soon began to rue it. They kick'd, and kick'd, and kick'd again, Dut all their strength seemed wasted. Tlip.y thougnt of home, out. in the fields, And all the joys they'd tasted. They slipped and climbed, they climb ed and slipped, They spluttered execration; Till one cried out, "I'll jack it up!" 'Twas his last exclamation. He lost all hope, gave up the fight, And sank 'neath milky waters; His mate kick'd on, resolved to see Again his wife and daughters. He jump'd and kick'd till he could feel The milk around him churning; And in his breast, though cold his blood, The hope of freedom burning. The milk grew hard, the butter set; On it his feet he rested; Cliiwb'd to the top. Success at last! Through pluck he'd not ibeen bested! Moral. When things loo...
