CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
CHAPTER IX. But if Sheila Dauvers was sad over night, she had no time for melan choly on the following morning. After all, she was young, and her glass told her that she was beautiful. The sun was filling her bedroom with a gold en light. She sprang out of bed, washed and dressed quickly without waiting for Nanny's aid, and was out in the garden some time before breakfast. She could not help a sense of intense relief at the absence of Ralph; and this sense of relief she reproached herself for, as she knew quite well that what gave her plea sure gave poor Aunt Margaret the keenest pain. Nevertheless, she was glad. Ralph as a little boy had been tiresome, selfish and quarrelsome. As he grew older, his greatest delight was to give Sheila sharp pinches on the sly. All these were objectionable jnough: but the last time she was home his manner had been insolent and overbearing. He had remarked boldly on the color of her eyes, ihe length of her tawny hair, and the shape of her feet. It was...

WIT AND HUMOB. "Therese changes her hair con stantly." "That's 'because it's so close to her mind, probably." "What kind of a disguise are you going to wear at the masquerade?" "A 'diaphanous' gown." . People will see right through that." "I don't know what I want to eat to-day. I'd like a little of everything." "Very well, sir," replied the waiter. "The hash will be ready in a few min utes." ' "So you don't approve' of those London Suffragettes?" "1 don't know much pbout them," replied Miss Cayen, "but l can't help feeling chit a woman who can't sub due a few men without the use of dynamite is something of a failure." "This isn't a clean knife, Jane," said the young mistress to the new servant. "Well, it ought to be," said the ser vant, "for the last tiling it cut was Boap." "My dear wife spent her early years in a milliner's shop," said a wealthy self-made man the other day. "Mine spends most of her time there now," growled his friend. "She's pretty dear, too!"

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occurred at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Cas pian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro glycerine were brought down by rail from Dc.r bend and deposited ovsv night in a large slied, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward- of this establishment, a. Greek named Darios, opened oiia of the drums for some reason best known to himself, and "decanted" a small Quantity of the dangerous li quid into a long tliin glass used for mixing vodka. This he plane-id on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly after wards there entered a workman named Borkovitcli, who was famous for the boisterous hilarity of his man ner, and especially for bis loud, res onant laughter. The sight of nitro-sjIywrJao in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibil ity that he gave vent to a series of ste...
EAR-WAGGERS NEVER DEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
EAR-WAGGERS NEVER DEAF. You win rarely find a man who can wag his ears suffers from deafness. The reason for this is very simple. Wagging one's ears exercises them just as much as walking exercises the muscles of the legs. A great deal of deafness is caused ^y the muscles of the ears becoming stiff and refusing to respond quickly to the sound waves. Quite a large proportion of children can move their ears, just as they can move tue skin on their forehead up and down, but as they grow up they lose their power through want of prac tice. It is a mistake to let a child lose this power, for it may mean the difference between good and bad hearing in after-years. Dr. M. Fernet, the famous Paris doctor, has even gone so far as to suggest that people should be trained to wag their ears just as much u? they are trained to exercise any other muscles of the body. Every woman wants to be loved in a particular way, and if a man knows his business he finds, out what it is, and behaves accordingly....

They signed tlieir names, one be neath the other, in the visitors' hook -"Mary Nugent, Loudon" . . . "John Weald, Ealing." It heing now five o'clock in the afternoon, they were sitting on the hotel verandah, star ing oyer their magazines at the sea. Flynton Regis is ;t small place. Fur ther-^this is as remarkable as it is delighttul-it is a place with small ambitions. For the fact that it does not advertise sufficiently to attract the casual tripper its regular visitors are profoundly grateful. Except at the height 01 the summer, you will not meet a dozen unfamiliar faces on its microscopic parade. It was now April. The slopes be hind the .town , were lemon-colored with a carpet of primroses. The short grass on the uplands beyond was of the purest, deepest emerald. The sea was still ruffled-for there had been the very dickens of a storm the day before-but vividly blue u...

CHILDREN WHO CANNOT SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
CHILDREN WHO CANNOT SLEEP. Indigestion, hunger, excitement, too much home worlc in their lessons, fear of the dark and loneliness are the principal causes of sleeplessness. In children. Indigestion can generally ho cured . by giving a pinch of bicarbonate of soda in a wineglasst'ul of water, for it is almost always due-to acidity of the stomach, caused by too many sweets, tea, colfee, or other food or drink that is not suitable for young stomachs. If a child be hungry it should be fed, a glass of warm milk and some biscuits, a cup of milk gnici or any other light and easily-digested food being given half an hour before go ing to bed. No child under twelve or thirteen years of age should lie allowed to study between supper and bed-time. ... only tires the young brain and pro uuees worry about the following day's work. . When a child is afraid of the dark ,4t cannot fielp it, and must be hu mored anil treated with sympathy. It should be taught how baseless its fears are, but, at (lie ...
