Air is Harder than Rock. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
Air is Harder than Rock. Ilynamite affords a means of prov ing that lliere niv limes when air js harder than rock, anil Dial such .limes are during the frac.-t.ion of ail instant when the djnamite is ex ploding. Place some ordinary Mark gunpowder upon u rock and set it off willi a fuse. The result is only a flash and a puff of smoke into the air, while llie rock is merely black ened b.v the flame. Xow place a stick of dynamite upon the .same rock and set it off. Instead of flashing into'the air as llie powder did, it will actually shat ter the rock, if even there is no thing about the dynamite to bind it down or retain it. It is for this reason that the com mon belief used to be held, and is held by ninny to-day, in fact, that dynamite, unlike other things, will follow the line of the greatest re sistance. But this is really not true. The laws of nature arc to follow the lines of least. resistance, und dynamite does exactly this by crashing through the roc.k Instead of into the air,...

Why He Wilted. "Wilt tliou take lier for thy part, for better, or for worse, to have, to hold, to fondly guard, till hauled off in a liearse? "Wilt thou let her have her way, consult her many wishes; make the fire every day, anil help her wash the dishes? "Wilt thou give her all the money her little purse will pack; buy a 'boa and a muff, and a little sealskin sacque? "Wilt thdu comfort and support her father and mother, Aunt Mary, Uncle Ed., three sisters, and a brother?" The poor man's face grew pale and blank. It was too late to jilt.

The Briaht Side. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
The Briaht Side. A lady residing in a quiet village in Suffolk used to take an interest in a very aged couple who were spinning out the last thread of life in "Darby and Joan" fashion, seated on either side of tlie fireplace. She often paid them a friendly visit to cheer them up. The old man had been ailing, and . at last a day came when the visitor found only one chair occupied. Darby was not in his usual place. "Where is your husband?" "Well, mum, he be gone at last." "Oh, I'm sorry. That is very sad for you," said the lady, seeking to find some words of consolation. "Yes, mum. it be said," replied the old woman: "but then, you see, he were fearfully in the way of the oven." An obstinate man is any man who doesn't think as we do. The luckiest day for getting mar ried has not yet been discovered. There may be a lot of credit due to a man's wife, but she usually demands cash.
TREAT YOUR GRASS WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
TREAT YOUR GRASS WELL. There is no department of farm work calling for better treatment than the young grass. A top-dressing of from one-and-a-half to two hundred weight of superphosphate would not only help to fill up the head of grain 011 what is generally the last crop of the rotation; but it would also im ! prove the quantity and quality of the ; resulting grass. Coarse grasses and | weedy herbage would disappear un ; dor its influence, and when the crop i was cut such an amount of early gra | zing could be had from it that the I manure would be more than repaid. A dressing of superhosphate causes i the free development of white clover and other leguminous plants, and these make its use remunerative. The condition of the young grass is a point demanding the close attention of every farmer who wishes to suc ! ceed. Subsequent crops depend 011 ; heavy carrying capacity. If an even ! growth of grass is obtained, covering the ground nicely, the practical man controls the situation, ...
HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
I HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. When Ban Rice invented the fa mous joke about "the greatest saw to saw that he ever saw," certainly the saw that he saw saw bore no sort of resemblance to many of the saws which we see saw. Saws that saw one's nerves as well as the timber, serceching and gnawing through, wood instead of cutting it smoothly and sweetly-that make one's back ache to witness their operation, and heart ache to witness the useless expendi ture of power and labor in much, of the work performed by this useful and, when properly made, filed, and set, most effective tool. A saw is a series of cutters, ar ranged either in one line or in two lines, according to the work to be per formed; and all saws used in wood work (and it is such of which we speak) may be included in two classes -those w" ich cut across the grain and those which cut lengthwise of the grain. The latter class has its teeth or cutters formed so as most to re semble a narrow chisel or piane bit. The teeth of the for...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
CHAPTER III. The vicar strode into the room a mo ment after and struck the keynote of the interview by drawing himself up right and ignoring Mr. Topper's out stretched hand. "\.hy, what's the matter, Mr. Fen ley?" quavered Mr. Topper. The vicar's penetrating eyes stared eoidly at Mr. Topper, and the baffled scientist quailed before them. Even before, the charge was announced he felt himself guilty, convicted, and sen tenced. "I've come here for some straight talk with you, Mr. Topper," the vicar said. "It isn't often I lose my temper, but I'm going to tell you to your face, Jo'in Topper, at you're a rascal, sir! A downright rascal!" Mr. Topper, who had been standing, suddenly collapsed into a chair and stared feebly at the man who, five min utes before, lie would have declared to be one of his best and most valued friends. "If only you'll be good enough to say what I've done, Mr. Fenley," ho said with a brave attempt at retort, "perhaps we will get along. You call at my house, presu...

WONDERFUL POWER OF THE WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
WONDERFUL POWER OF THE WIFE. No married man ever prospered in the true sense of the word without the co-operation and help of his wife. If she unites in mutual endeavors, or rewards his labors with an endear ing smile, with what confidence will he resort to his daily toil, meet diffi culty and encounter danger, if he knows that he is not spending his strength in vain, but that his efforts will be rewarded by the sweets of home! Solicitude and disappointment enter the history of every man's life, and he is only half provided for his voyage if his associate is fit only for hours of pleasure, while for his months of darkness no sympathising partner is prepared to cheer and com fort. The worthy wife can wield 1 power far beyond computation, and the happy home, free from drink, is the scene of strength and support. For the cantie wifie's smile Will the cares o' life beguile And banish care and toil Frae our ain fireside.
T'opper's Champion Villain. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
Popper's Champion Villain. By ASHLEY MILNER. CHAPTER I. Very earnestly, yet in a voice sub dued so that his housekeeper might not -hear it, Mr. John Topper address ed his reflection in the mirror. He was a short, robust, benevolent looking man upon whose plump face forty years of placid life had written but few lines to mark tlieir passage. Comfortably off, as the phrase goes untroubled by the cares of business or family, Mr. Topper beamed at the world through his rimless spectacles and passed his long hours dabbling eagerly with the science of sociology. He stood now, dressed in his long morning coat, his left hand gripping at its left lapel in the Balfourian atti tude, rehearsing the paper which he was to deliver that night to the Bess borough Sociological Society "And now, in conclusion, Mr. Chair man and Gentlemen," he was saying, "I await your verdict upon the argu ments I have put forth. I maintain that crime is not so much a matter of hereditary as environment. . A thief's so...

CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
CHAPTER" I. When Mr. Topper doteraiinnd upon )iis Jiistory-making demonstration, he took it for granted that the supply or specimens was unlimited. So much was this the case that he Intended an almost fastidious choice of a thor ough-going villain; one from whos-3 breast every human sympathy had died, every decent motive was miss ing, every aspiration lost. The works of fiction told him, of the existence of numbers of such men; no popular work was complete without the ebon / hearted scoundrel. And Mr. Topper had determined that his villain must be the genuine article, as otherwise his demonstration would prove no thing. "What's the use of me getting a man who has lingering hopes of reform or who has redeeming qualities?" he told himself sternly. ' In such a man I should only succeed in awaking tlu good that was asleep in the man's mind. No, I want a thorough-paced villain." His morning post the next day brought liini, amongst the rest, two begging letters. One was from a mau with a ...
