PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er 01 Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores of the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the most out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two boolcs had belonged to the literature of captivity they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Purg...

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. In the ye;:,' 1828 there appeared in tile streets of Nuremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "Kasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name of a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent al: his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— .Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, who was now about twenty-one years old, accord...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

II. The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material things were themselves conscious of fatigue. iThey I rolled from station to station to the accompaniment of hissing steam and tired voices. There was no moon, but the northern lights shimmered upon the sleeping fields and discovered an homon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh should come with them, and lie got into the carriage manfully and sat down with an air of authority good to see The excitement had waked"liim thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come iback? Was Lally still : frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell : him, hut did not make much of a job I of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desds. -to-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, olct chap; you must try to sleep."

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My -boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set tight your lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb, When some hard' task's before you, i-or, though- laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who sings or whistles at his work. A lesson .from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk of Stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the-sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas hi3 laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot. But shook with hearty...

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of the invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, o£ course, was late. Instead of arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the service began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which thpy were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before. Th...

Quite Lively Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 17 April 1914

Quite Lively Enough. Seated on an empty box in front of a log cabin in the Far West was a man cleaning a double-barrelled gun. A passing tourist stopped to chat, and asked him how far it was to the nearest neighbor's. "A trifle over two miles," he re plied. "As far as that? You must find it rather lonely here." "ISo, I can't say as I do. You see I mortgaged this claim for four hun dred, dollars. And I couldn't pay, so they foreclosed." The stranger murmured an exclam ation of surprise. "That was two years ago, and the sheriff has been trying to get posses sion ever since. He comes twice a week, and we have a shot at each other; and at least twice a week some idiot comes along and wants to know if I ain't lonely; and then there are thieving tramps and rattlesnakes; so this life is about as exciting as I like. There cornea the sheriff now. You had better lie down behind that log, and keep clear of his gun." Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, r...

Raising Fat Cattle. OPPORTUNITY FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 21 April 1914

Raising Fat Cattle. OPPORTUNITY FOR FARMERS. Dr Cameron (Director of Agricul ture) stated that the^-high prices recently obtained in Great Britain and the improved demand for high class beef cattle, indicated the lie cessity of meeting the increased re quirements of the world's meat supply The other day a cablegram was published that the meat-eating habit bad iargely increased through out the world during recent years. Millions of people in countries pre viously non-meat-cating now used it. It was apparent that meat dis tribution would have to look to oversea dominions to maintain the supply. The improved prices ob tainable- are reflected in the Vic torian markets. At lichuca 32s Gd a head had been paid for cross bred wethers, while fat bullocks have realised ,£1G per head at New market. These prices approach the figures ruling in England. They indicate that the time is com ing when breeding, rearing and fattening stock can be undertaken as a sound farming proposition.

At the Kuthergleu experimental farm a - series of 20 quarter acre blocks were sown with different combination of nitrogenous, pliqs phatic and potassic manures. Four facts, states Mr A. E. V. Richardson (the superintendent of Agriculture 1. in a report to Dr. Cameron (the director of Agricul ture), were demonstrated promi nently. Firstly, the most effective form iu which phosphates can be applied to a wheat crop is the water soluble form, as superphosphate. A mix ture of water soluble (super.) and citrate soluble phosphate ■ (basic slag) comes next in value, "and least effective of all so far as im mediate results are concerned is bonedust;.

The uudeve loped wealth of Australia has been to me a profound revelation. I had no idea you had such a-splendid and such a delightful country. The result of my visit to the back blocks of Victoria, and last week of New South, Wales, has caused me to feel as a Briton like a man who has suddenly, corue .iuto the possession of a great inheritance, of the value of which he was previously un aware. I do not believe that the people outside Australia—I do not believe that a great portion of your population of Sydney—sufficiently realise the amount and variety of the wealth waiting to be garnered in your rural districts. ...

When you look into both committees one cannot help being surprised at some ot the men con nected with them allowing an out side band - to be engaged when the work can be done locally. Here we are, five of us, picked men from the Rochester Brass Baud, quite good enough to supply music for the pleasure of the town; quite good enough to go away and bring back the laurels at the recent baud contest, and yet not good euough to supply music at these socials be cause we are to be paid for our ser vices.
