UNCLE JOE'S SPEECH. 'This is the most comfortable chair, Uncle Joe. Won't you take it?' .; £ Lncle Joe looked at his ruphew with a suspicion of a glare. lie was a cheer ful, bluff old gentleman, who was mak ing a visit in his nephew's family, and had just come in from a brisk walk in tho country. Now he strode to the fircplnce and stood in front of it, warm ing his coat-tails. His niece was busy with some fancy-work near the win dow, and his nephew had just laid aside the afternoon paper. 'Do sit down in the most comfort able chair,' urged the young woman with the fancy-work. 'I prefer to stand up,' said Uncle Joe. 'Any objection?' : 'Why, no,' said his nephew. *((5f course, if you wish to stand up ? ' 'Your intentions,' said Uncle Joe, 'are good, but with your 1)prmissiou, I'm going to make a specch.

ROYAL CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
HOYAL CORRESPONDENCE. ? v ? - If one were asked to speculate as to the Sovereign whose daily mail bag was the greatest, one would hazard the Kaiser. But no. Then one will say, it ought to be. On the unimpeachable authority of a Paris contemporary, we learn that the Pope is the recipient of the greatest number of missives. The mail of His Holiness consists on the average of 23,000 letters, newspapers, etc. To go through this mass thirty-five secretaries are kept employed. The President ' of. the United Sfates receives,. nearly 1,000 letters daily and about 4,000 journals and books. The Kaiser's mail-bag consists'of 4,000 lefters and frequently the same number of books and papers. Our King, we learn, is favoured with 1,000 letters, a day, and over a, 000 newspapers and books. The Cjsar is not overworked in this respect for a Sovereign, His Majesty's mail-bag being given at 650 letters, etc. , per day. The Kings of Italy and Spain have to deal with about 300 letters each.

FAIR—YET FALSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
FAIR—YET FALSE. It was that which caught his fancy in the ballroom's dreamy whirl ; not her eyes, her lij a. her laughter, but her .'-hiiiing golden curl. And when first his love he faltered, did he ask for hand or girl? Not a bit. Ho said he hungered just to press that tinv curl. Throb of music, breath of flowers, mist of tullo and gleam of pearl came tho bride, a radiant vision — 'mid her lace the straying curl. None could tell just how it happen ed, gust of wind or rice showers', swirl ; hut — the carriage hid her blushes-r-oi? the pavement lay that curl.

EMERGENCY LIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
EMERGENCY LIGHTS. To add to the horrors of a steam ship collision at night, it some limes- happens that the water reaches the dynamos, thus putting the lighting system out of commis sion, and making it impossible for the terrified passengers to find their way about. In order to prevent such an occurrence, one of the lake steamers has recently installed an emergency storage battery which is placed on one of the upper decks. The batteries are charged during the day, when the regular lighting system is not in use. In this con nection it is interesting to note that some of the theatres in Europe are using storage batteries to furnish the power for the lights at the exits, and that a Chicago theatre has just in stalled a similar system. In this way a more reliable lighting system is assured, the necessity of which was very forcibly shown in the Iroquois disaster.

WASHING BILLS. During: the year 1909 paper bills representing ^40,000,000 were rej moved from circulation and destroy^ e'd by the American government: M#ch of this could have been sav'ed ^an&Wlide as good as new had theVe been anv suitable means available tiai ^wa'shing the bills.

jTELJpGRAPH-TYPE WRITERS ON SHIPS. The U.S.A. battleship Nebraska is to^,be., fitted .with a telegraph typewriter system which should be extremely valuable in time of battle for communication between the conning tower and the gun positions; I'he $adyantage, of this system oVef ! the$ telephone is obvious. In' the noise of .the battle, directions can b'fe heard only with the greatest diffi culty, whereas with the typewriter: telegraph orders are received . ,iii printed form and can readily be un* defstood. Just how such a system would operate when subjected to the jars , incidental to gunfire, is a matter ..which can only be determine ed by 'experiment. :
LOO[?]ING THE LOO[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
LOOPING :THE loop: r Years ago, when there were only wooden sidewalks in the City of Win n'P°K, Canada, holes were bored in tha planks to let the water run through. In the morning twilight a policeman found a man with the tip of his wooden leg in one of these holes and hurriedly walking round it with his good leg and foot. 'What are ye doin' there?' asked the policeman. 'G'way, offs her,' said the man. 'Got to get homo before ol' lady wakes up.' — 'Every, body's Magazine.'
Bits from Books. A NARROW SQUEAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
Bits from Books. ? w ? A NARROW SQUEAK. f f;Big game literature now forms a good-sized branch by itself. 'In the Heart of Africa,' the Duke Adolphus Frederick of Mecklenburg recounts, many exciting adventures : ! The Duke's narrowest escape was from a wounded elephant bull with tusks well over 8ft. in length. Hav ing -wounded the animal, the author, writh his two followers, Mambo and Abdullah, ventured to search for it in a belt of grass nearly 12ft. high. The elephant scented them, how and at once prepared to charge. Perceiving the imminent peril, Ab dullah put a leaden bullet through ?his -forehead at a distance of one pace only, which, however, only caused the elephant to kneel down and try to bore Mambo with his tusks. Unsuccessful in this, he seized the youth by the straps of the cartridge pouch and tossed him high into the air. I was unaware of these proceedings, as, in my at tempts to let the elephant pass, I had slipped aside and fallen in the swampy ground again, where I st...
COOKING BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
COOKING BY ELECTRICITY. In order to demonstrate the util ity of electric stoves for household use a dinner was recently given in Chicago, which was cooked on an electric stove adapted for ;t family of eight. The dinner consisted o! consomme, roast beef, lima beans, potatoes, short cake, and coffee, and the cooking occupied two hours, with an electrical expenditure of 2,310 watt hours. The cost of the cooking, at the prevailing rate for current, was about 23 cents. In the cooking the fireless cooker principle was employed to a certain extent, the food in each case being subject ed to a maximum heat for a short time, after which the current was cut off, or at least greatly reduced, so that the heat absorbed would -filSflV'-' - theX(:ocl and cook it thoro-i
WHY WOMEN HAVE THE "BLUES." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
WHY WOMEN HAVE THE 'BLUES.' 'Why do so many women have melancholia?' repeated the doctor, who has a large practice among the 'depressed' and 'nervous' femin ine population. 'Because they don't care to avoid it. Because they absolutely disregard the rules of mental and physical well-being. Be cause they would rather eat what they like and suffer indigestion, and the blues afterwards, than eat what is good for them, but doesn't tickle their palates. Because they'd rath er sit about on soft cushions than take a tramp six miles through the open air. Because they read too much sentimental stuff. Because they haven't enough to occupy their minds and their hands.' Then the doctor paused to take breath, and began again somewhat less aggressively : — 'It is never the women who have cause to feel the blues,' he said, 'who indulge in blues. The women who have shiftless husbands, hard hearted landlords, sick babies, and the usual accompaniments of pover ty never grow so depressed that they have...

THE DAUGHTER'S ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
THE .DAUGHTER'S ROOM. The girl who can make her room expressive of a harmony in her life, who recognises that order and neat ness must; go hand in hand with ar tistic grace and beauty, will have in vested her little domain with a charm which is. not dependent upon the ac tual furniture and fittings. Little screws of combings left on the dressing-table, burnt matches on the mantel border, and a litter of papers, about the grate, are sugges tive of, something more than untidi ness. They show a lack of appreci ation for the fitness of things that cannot be counterbalanced by any talent for music, poetry, or painting: . rrimness, ana rignt angles witn I methodical , arrangements that ex clude dainty touches here and there, are no more to be desired than unti diness. Every girl should revel in the Utile adornments that make for daintiness. Such adornments, how eve^ need -nice keeping, and better fRe bare room of an ascetic than one which ? shows no proper upkeep of artistie treasures, an...
CURIOUS "WIRELESS" FACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
CURIOUS 'WIRELESS'' FACT. A curious fact with regard to the transmission of wireless messages is that the distance to which they can be sent from a given station varies from, time to time. Thus a station \vith. an equipment which normally sends, readable waves to a distance of 100 miles can occasionally send them 1,000 miles. An investiga tion of the matter shows that these long ranges always occur after dark, \vhen the air is normally less ionised than in the daytime. Hence it is inferred that the less ionised the air, the less, that is to sav. that it is a conductor of cleclricitv, the greater the facilities for the propa gation of the waves of the wireless apparatus.

For Young Folks. THE FAIRIES AND THE PANSIES [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911
For Young Folks. w THE FAIRIES AND THE PANSIES The pansy has as many stories as . it has varieties and names, but per haps ,the prettiest one is about the fairies who painted the pansy. The story 'tells us that one night the fair ies had ventured out of their hiding places, and had met near the home of a little sick girl to talk over what they could do to make the world brighter and better, both for her and for everybody else. One fairy suggested that they make a new flower, and at last they decided to take a big bed of plain white pansies and make them more beautiful. So they hurried away for the acorn cups in which they mixed their paints, and their paint-brushes, which were made from the down of the dandelion. To mix th£~ proper colours they took blue from the sky, red from the sunset, yellow from the sun beams, and brown from the earth itself. When the colours were mix ed so that they had the most beau tiful shades and tints which the fairy would know, they painted each other's ...
