The Grateful Father. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914

The Grateful Father. A young man, at tlio risk of his life, saved a beautiful girl from drowning. Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything that makes life dear to me. Which reward will you take —fifty thousand pounds or the hand of my daughter?" "I'll take the daughter," replied the heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get "both the girl and the money. "You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not laid up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my daughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE. We think of Napoleon as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death ;>f its founder. It is well to remember that his gen ius was great also in other most last ingly fruitful fields. He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-; man—and as such he did not fail to re alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences. Writing to the astronomer Oriani. from Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern ments. "... I invite the scholars to meet 'tiid to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences md the fine arts. Those who wish to ?o to Trance will be received with dis ■incti...

Poetic Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914

Poetic Justice. Little things can be very trying at times, especially "when they happen to you. Mr. Fry thought something like this when, one wet morning, he could not find his umbrella. Like most married men, he believed in the max im, "when in trouble blame your wife." "I say, 3Iary," he shouted, "what on earth has happened to my new um brella? I brought" it home last night, » and now it's gone; and, of course, it's raining like mad!" ' "Why, it's hardly raining at all!" said' Mary. "But last night it was simply pouring when the vicar left, and so I lent him your umbrella." "What a silly thing to do! I shall never see it again now,"so I may as well buy another to-day!" "How can you be so wicked, Perci val? As if the vicar would stoop to stealing your umbrella!" "Stoop to stealing it be hanged! I ♦ borrowed it from him a couple of , months ago!"
