Advising the Prophet. He entered the meteorological oflicc, and said, in his jerky way: "This 'ere's where you give out weather predictions, ain't it?" The clerk nodded. "Well," continued the old man, "I thought as how I would come up and give you some useful tips." "Yes?" said the clerk, politely. "IVe watched very carefully, an' 1 fifid that ye ain't always right." "No; we sometimes make mis takes." "Course you do. We all do some times. Now, I was thinkin' as how j a line that used to 'be on the auction handbills down in our county might j do fust-rate on your weather predic tions, and save you a lot of explain in'." "What was the line?" "Wind an' weather 'permittiu'." He went down without waiting to say good-bye. | The finger of suspicion generally wears a wedding ring.

AN ACCIDENTAL MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

AN ACCIDENTAL. MARRIAGE. lie was quite an oia gentleman—ft clergyman—and suffered from the complaint with which Dr. Spooner is supposed to be afflicted—he was always misplacing the iniLiul con sonants of words. But for this he would probably have remained a bachelor to this day, for he was a very shy old gen tleman, especially • when in the com pany of ladies. It so happened, however, that one afternoon an elder ly parishioner of the opposite sex cunic to call on him. Tea was brought in. Then sud denly it occurred to the old gentle man that he should ask the ljiriy to make tea. But, instead, blundering as usual, he turned to her, with a gentle smile, and asked ; "Will you take me ?" $ And she took, him !

The "Diamond City." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

The "Diamond City." TCiniberley, the "Diamowl City," hns had a curious history. In 1800-70 the precious crystals, first found in 1807, near the Orange : River, wore discovered here in con : siderable quantity, and, of course, | a great rush of adventurers' at once i took place from all parts of the ! world, so that in two or three years j its population had increased to | many thousands. Competition among the niaaiy owners of mining claims • brought down the price of" dia monds to such an extent that the profits of mining very soon be came almost infinitesimal. Mr. Cecil Rhodes, who had gone to Natal for his health shortly be fore 3870, and went to Kimber ley in the first months of the rush, was the' first to see that a consoli dation of the many concerns was the only way of keeping up the price of diamonds, and, chiefly by his skill and. boldness, the process of amalgamating the various claims and. interests into one huge corpora tion was completed in 1885. Since then the Dc Beers ...

A Visit to the Pyramids. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

A Visit to the Pyramids. Thcro is a. very interesting account of a trip to the Pyramids in " A .Journalist in the Holy Lam!," by Arthur Copping, an entertaining story of a journey made by the author and his brother through Egypt and Palestine :— A stately Aral) in gorgeous attire offered himself' as my guide. Wo walked through the Cairo of ofli cial residences and wealth, - where brood thoroughfares planted with ucacia trees gave entrance to state ly white mansions—a quarter of the city that savoured rather of Bel gravia than Egypt. Coming presently to a fine bridge spanning the Nile, we crossed, to find ourselves in ft thoroughfare through which. In a green proces sion of varied zoological interest, the produce of agricultural • Egypt was in transit. There were laden carts drawn by oxen, followed by Sturdy donkeys thatched with sugar canes. Hard by we took our seats in a smart electric traincar, which swiftly ; carried us within sight of the py ramids, figuring still, solemn, and I...

Too Good. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

Too Good. After living in a house for some thing under a week, a working-man took the key back to the agent the other day. "What's wrong?" demanded the agent. "Isn't the house good enough for you?" "It's too good, mister," was the re ply. "That's just it; it's too good." "What do you mean?" "Well; the wall is a-weeping for the sins of the roof, which, being jerry built, and teetotal, takes nowt but water. Every chimney's a non-smok er, and the 'ouse ain't no place for a bordinary. sinner."

Fortunes in Old Prints. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

Fortunes in Old Prints. Most people can art mi re nn en graving for its beauty and artis tic merit, but only a few, com paratively speaking, have the least idea what it represents in hard ■ :ash, ami these are generally col lectors or experts. Quite recently the writer was looking nt a col lection of old prints in a shop, when two young men stopped to admire. "That's rather n nice thing," said one. "1 wonder if they would take half a sovereign for it-?" "Yes, and be glad to," said the other. It was a genuine Ilaig, and would have been cheap at anything' up to five-and-tliirty pounds. Theirs was the little knowledge which is a dan gerous thing, and if .cither of those young men had owned instead ol coveting that print ho might easily have parted "with a.valuable pos session to some astute collector for a twentieth part of its market price. Years of Study—and not very pro fitable study at that—are necessary to thoroughly understand old prints from the commercial side; but it is safe t...

100,000 Murderers at Large. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

100,000 Murderers at Large. Something like 9,000 murders are committed' overy year in the Unit ed States. Accordihig to recent dis closures 100,000 murderers are free 11 nd 75,000 of them have never ever seen the inside of a jail. Some amazing coses of the way in wliicl the law is evaded are cited. In one instance a man escape*: conviction for burglary because the indictment stated that six persons inhabited the house which lie rob Led, and the proof showed only live In another: case the court dis missed an indictment because the word "father" had two "r's" in it, another court did tho same becaust 'the letter " 1 " was left out ir "malice," and still another becausc Ihe "a" was left out of "breast." But the worst case known is thai wherein a court allowed a criminal to escupe because the indictment de scribed the crime as being "againsl the peace and dignity of State, instead of " the State." In Texas a man has been tried six times for tho same murder, and is still free Mamma (dini...

Flabbergasted. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

Flabbergasted. "New York's high prices are enough to flabbergast anybody," said Nat M. Wills, the actor. "Young Cornelius Husk came to New York last month because a pass was given him. He stayed in New York two days. When he got back home again they asked him what he had seen , but it appeared that he had seen nothing. He had done no sightseeing whatever. " "What, Corn,' said his friends, 'two days in New York and never saw a -thing?' " 'Well, Corn Husk replied, 'do you think I was goin' to pay 4dol. a (lay for a room and not use it all the time."

All Rights Reserved. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 25 April 1914

All Rights Reserved. In a court of law one day, says a well-known attorney, one of the coun sel paused in his argument, remark ing to the judge: "I observe that your honor shakes, his liead at that statement, a desire to reaffirm it, although your honor dissents." "1 am not aware," coldly responded the judge, "that I have intimated how 1 shall construe the evidence, nor what my decision will be in the pre mises. Your remark is, therefore, en tirely uncalled for." "Your honor shook his head." "True," said the judge; "there was a fly on my ear. And I'll have you know, sir, that 1 reserve the right to remove a fly in whatever manner pleases nie." There is only enough iron in thfi body of an average man to make a small nail, a German scientist states. But there is brass enough to make a iarge kettle.
