THE LADIES' COLUMN. Legend of the Edelweiss. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

THE LADIES' COLUMN. Legend of the Edelweiss. This star-like fower that high in cloud-land blows, Once was a maiden-so the legend goes A maid so fair, so pure without, within, That all her loved, yet worthy none to win. In vain her euitors wooed, in vain they sighed; Until at length, when still unwed, she died On mountain top, enthroned 'mid snow and ice, Transformed to flower, she reigns ea delweise. And since alone through toil and bravery, And upward struggle, found this flower maybe, To pluck the Edelweiis is to obtain The noblest love that mortal manmay gain, Since 'tis the type of ideal womanhood Of all that is most pure, moat beantiful, most good. --" Detroit Free Preese."

AN INSTANCE OF TACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

AN INSTANCE OF TACT. To be able to say the right thing at the right moment is a great art, and said only to be aoquired by those who have a natural talent that way. When a careless talker, who was critic g a young lady's father severely, paused a moment to say, "I hope he is no relation of yours, Miss 3B," quick as thought she replied, with the utmost nonchalance, "Only a con nection of my mother's by marriage." Few could hope to show such a readiness of speech in a dilemma of this kind. Yet In a more curious and amusing way this was matched by a cautious old woman who, when asked what she thought of one of her neighbors by the name of Jones, with a knowing look replied, ??VWhy, I don't like to say anything abot m neighbora; but as to Mr Jones, sometimes I think, and then again I don't know; but, after all, I rather guess he'll turn out to be a good deal such a sort of a man as I take him to be."

POLITENESS OF GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

POLITENESS OF GREAT MEN. Truly great men are polite by instinct to their inferiors. It is one element of their greatnees to be thoughtful for others. The greatest men in the world have been noted for their politeness. Indeed, many have owed their greatnees mainly to their popular man nere, which induced the people whom they pleased to give them an opportunity to show their power. Many years ago the errand boy employed by a publishing house in a great city was sent to procure from Edward Everett the proof-eheete of a book he had been exam ining. The boy entered the vast library, lined from floor to ceiling with books, in fear and trembling. He etood in awe of this famous man, and dreaded to meet him. But Mr Everett, turning from the desk where he was writing, received the lad with reasuering courtesy, bade him sit down chatted kindly as he looked for the proof sheete, and asked-" Shall I put a paper around them for you ?" as pohtely as if his visitor had been a president. The boy dep...

A Clever Literary Swindler. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

A Clever Literary Swindler. o One of the cleverest literary awindlere who ever lived was a Maltese named Vella, who pretended to have an intimate acquaintance with Arabic, although he did not know a word of that language, and was not even familiar with the alphabet. He arrived in Sicily about the end of the last century, at a time when the barons of that country, in order to settle a dispute about their feudal right, were anxious to gaincer tain information about the kingdom in the days of the Saracens. Vella contrived to be appointed trans. lator of certain Arabic manuscripts, and he actually produoed an alleged translation and played his part with such address that he obtained honors, dignity and the pro fessorehip of Arabia in the University of Palermo. The Sicilian literati at last became sus picionus and endeavored to expose the im postor, bat he was defended by Eome of the most eminent men of the soland, and it was with the greatest difficulty that an investiga tion was secure...

Spring Valley. :o [FROMJ OU OWN CORRE.'PJNDRNTI. Mns. Blackman, ot Break-o'-Day post-office, Flowerdale, was very unfortunate on Thurs. day night last in having a five.roomed house, kitchen, and stables burnt to the ground. Almost all the furniture-was destroyed, but fortunately the post-office and a room ad joining were saved. The inmates were awakened by Mrs. C. Doherty, who was passing in a buggy at the time and noticed that the house was on fire. This lady im mediately set to work to arouse from their slumbers those who were in the house, thereby rescuing the inmates from what might have been an awful death. It is believed that the house was insured. Mrs. Blackman is a very old resident, having lived here for the past 30o years.

Progressive I Democracy. HaNRY Ward Beecher ones said. " God's hand, like a sign.board, is pointing towards democracy, and saying to the nations of the earth 'This a the way, walk ye in it.'" With. out question Beecher had the eyes of a pro. phet, and the intellect of a great thinker. More than once lhe detlered thl world was marching in the directli, of universal demo. crecy. If that day ever dawns, it will be placed upon its trial, and a great test it will he. The growth of democratic principles is astounding. To-day we have democraey everywnere. In the collegeoand university. in science and art, and, to a remarkable ex. tent, in medicine. The old preiudioea and conservative procedure are being thrown aside, and men are larning more aholt them. selves than their forefathers ever imagined.

His name (says the S"European Mail") was Charles Guyett; Ihe was G6 years old, and lived in a little room at 24;: St. Leonard's road, Bromley. He was a pensioner of the British Go vernment, drawing from the empire which he had helped to defend the not extravagantly generous sum of Pd. a day. He was all through the Crimean war as a private in the 1st Battalion Greniadier Guards, gaining by his good behaviour two war medals and the bars for Alma, Inkerman, Balaklava and Sebastopol. At the battle of Inkerman he was wounded, and so brought home with him, along with the war medals and bars, the honorable scar that marked him as a faithful and fearless grenadier, but yet a grateful country allowed him to die of starvation.
