CONSOLATION FOR QUIET GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
CONSOLATION FOR QUIET GIRLS Let us look into any ballroom for a few minutes. We shall soon see that the girls are divided into three classes. The first consists of the "taking" girl. She is, aa ^ rule-though by no means always--pretty. One thing, however, she Dever lacks-that is, conversation. How much sense there Is iaiier chatter goodness only knows; but fhe has the art of looking inter esteAand making her partner believe that she thinks him the cleverest man she ever met. And in this lies tho secret of her success. The second division consists of the girl who is not striking at first sight, who does not talk for mere talking's sake when she has nothink worth say ing, and although often clever, ac complished, and pretty, she does not get her programme filled nearly so quickly as the first girl. The third consists of the hopelessly plain, stupid and awkward girl, who generally sits round the room unless she is dancing with a brother-or else has a lot of money-looking disap pointed ...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
HEART PALPITATION. It la rarely, if ever, that palpitation is due to any disease or weakness of the heart.' It is almost invariably the result of nervous or digestive trouble. The beat of the heart arises within itself. There are nerves in the mus cles of the heart, and they regulate its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. If they were not held in checlf they would set a rate about double that which is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs of regulating nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerves, act only to spur up tie heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inhibitory nerves,, are always-in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile 1B true, for these nerves check the speed. Fear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhibitory nerves to re lax;' ...
ONE OF [?]ESOP'S FABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
ONE OF AESOP'S FABLES. A. dreamer and a man o£ action loved a woman. The dreamer said: "I shall write verses in her praise; they will touch her vanity, and she will love mo for them." But the man of action said: "How old-fashioned! I shall corner the stock market, and that will bring her." So the dreamer wrote verses, and he induced a friend of his, who ran a ten-cent magazine, to print them. And the man of action cornered something or oth^r, and became a bsllionaire. In tt/e meantime, the girl married a man "who inherited his money, and they lived happy ever after. But the dreamer was so proud of his verses that he Jidn't care; and the man of action was so busy that he didn't care. The only one to suffer was the man she married.
HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. For packing shallow boxes should be used, as the flowers will travel much better if placed in single lay ers. The boxes should be just long enough to comfortably accommodate the flowers, and should be lined with some soft non-absorbent material. Wood wool is the best material to use, but fresh moss will also answer the purpose. Over this place a layer of white tissue paper and then lay the flowers in position, packing them as closely as possible. Cover with another layer of tissue paper and fill in if necessary with a little more packing material till when the lid Is placed in position the contents of the box are quite lirm and unable to shift.
II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
II. '.Halloa, Cassard! Can It be that Music hath charms to soothe thy savage breast* V" asked a laughing voice. "Then we have found thy heel, oh, Archilles, and we, too, shall war Die to thee. "Not lor the world," interrupted a second voice in mock horror. "De pend upon it, music is anathema to him, and he was merely bribing the tair troubadour to depart in peace." There was a cloud on Carl CaBBard's brow, and he looked pale and distrait as he resumed his seat at the table, rio glanced involuntarily at Lady Grace Shamling, who was evidently guest o£ honor, lor she was seated at his right hand, but the expression oil her face did not invite his confl uence, for it was coldly indifferent, with a rather contemptuous curl of the up, and he felt chilled and disappoint ed, lor although no word oi love had passed between them, and they were both free as air, they had reached the first stage of an affair and the betting was all on their making a match of it at no distant date. At least, suc...
THE DARKEST HOUR. I. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
THE DARKEST HOUR. By M. I. Douglas. In a third-floor back room of a dis mal Pimllco lodging house a grey hair ed,. haggard looking man was seated in an uncomfortable chair, placed Tiear the window, from which he was watching for some expected arrival who was long 111 coming. The grate was guiltless of fire, and the only light, camo from the street lamp outside. The door of the small cupboard in tne wall was wide open -and empty, as was also die coal scuttle, while the mail's purse did nol contain a single farthing. Even a casual observer would have seen at a glance that things had reached a desperate stage, and that only o miracle could avert one of those awful tragedies of poverty which although of frequent occurrence, rare ly find their way into the daily pap ers to harrow the feelings of affluent readers. The clocks ju the neighborhood struck seven. Presently there was the sound of a light footstep coming upstairs; a second later the door open ed and a. girl came in. "Dad," she a...
THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American writer of short storieB, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. Ho hur ried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he . said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm .his lawyer!" was the reply. "1 know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, Tin a writer of liction." And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart lor a time. And by-and-by, despairing oi tindlng one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the' jury. And he would exchange an intelli gent, liberrous smile with the twelve. And then he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, lie would say, 'That is quito enough, Mr. Cobb! You may stand down!'"

III. Mr. Clifford entered the room, flour ishing a newspaper in his hand, ex crement sparkling in his eyes. "What is it?" asked Violet, eager ly; "it can't be bad news " "Such an extraordinary thing, my clear," was the reply, as her father pointed out a particular paragraph for h«r notice; "I turned into the Free Library to look at the 'Situations Vacant,' and my eyes fell on this ad vertisement. I was so interested that 1 actually bought a copy to bring to show you." "£100 REWARD.- Wanted the vords of an old song, known as "The Lemon Tree," the first line of which runs:-"Red rose the sun o'er Val di I Mazara."

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness-a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and their work is recent ana limited; there are many in kind, and In spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the inidst of their discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must couie more and more into considera tion by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In the consideration of the na ture of legumes, we must take into account the bacteria which they have associated with them, and through which they obtain the atmospheric nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must have favorable conditions that our plants ...

DOOKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
DOOKIE, The licensee and boarders of the Dookie hotel were recently thrown into a state of excitement when a huge corrugated iron tank containing 3000 gallons of water, erected on piles 20 feet high, collapsed. A strong westerly wind was blowing at the time, which drove the structure bodily on to a storeroom, completely demolishing the roof and brick wall. Mr Lynch, the &nbsp; proprietor, who had a quantity of wines, spirits, cigars and cigarettes stored, had been in the room only a few minutes previously, and thus considered his escape a lucky one. Having only recently taken over the licence, Mr Lynch is a heavy loser. A large number of bottles of wines and spirits, besides a quantity of cigars and ciga- rettes, was destroyed. Two casks of whisky valued at £26 and £35 respectively were left intact. Mr Lynch estimates his loss at £50.

The Man who Dodged Work. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
The Man who Dodged Work. By Charles Phelps Cushing, m tho "Argonaut." It's frightfully hard to make some . persons understand that when one of 1 literature's vagrants has money enough i to last him into the middle of Janu ary he continues to be rich until he's poor again. When I'm poor I chase work, take on any sort of hack writing, from interviews to encyclopaedias, but when I'm rich I dodge it. The harder I pursue, the mora desperately I have to flee lator on. Or I should say, ra thor, that is the way things used to bo in the days when I was ashamed of my soul and afraid to fling capital back in the publisher's tooth. As you shall see. A month ago I looked at my bank book and with intense gratification dis covered that the balance had readied tho unprecendented high water mark of 500 dollars. That was enough to change my wholo attitude towards ex istence. From that time forth until my funds shall sink to zero agjain I am rich, and despise to recogmso labor even as a speaking acqua...
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 22 January 1914
REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. At the basis of all genuine rotations lies the fact that plants differ from one another ;they differ from one an other In their demands upon the soil, both chemical and physical; they dif fer tvith regard to their root system, depth of feeding, their moisture re quirements, their time of feeding, their dates In reaching maturity, etc Many plants impoverish the soil; e few enrich It; some spoil its physical condition, while others Improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others eithei are able to hold the weeds in check or require such cultivation and treat ment as will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places In rotation, and u well arranged rotation Is one In which the strong points of one crop follow so as to fit Into the weak points of another, or vice versa, and in this way reduce deficiencies to a minimum. A crop that requires a large amount oi one element should be followed hy one that requ...

NERVES AND THE WOMAN. Living Too Hard. rnis is the age or hard work; win.-:, concentration on whatever one ha;> pens to take up is essential to suc cess. The business woman who wain; to get on has to work hard and li\x hard every hour ol the day. The pro fessional woman who slacks will he passed by other competitors in tlie race for fame and success.
