WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I io-.v old mothers—mothers with white liair, Ami kindly..eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in their quiet grace That speaks the calm oC Sabbath afternoons; A knowledge in their deep unfaltering eyes That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing - touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, While all -the( echoes of forgotten songs ^Seem. joined to lend a sweetness, to tl^eir speech. Old mothers!—as they pass with slow-timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to youth's strentgh; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden uv.lks, old roses, add old "" loves.

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
' kee» faith with the children. - Many :i woman who would not think of lightly breaking a promise made to a grown-up person is utterly i careless about keeping, her word with | her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking.or keeping of those promises is a matter in which she can please herself, arid that her children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. A mother who acts thus does her children grievous harm. Sho forgets that the sense oC justice is strong in quite a little child, and that it. is nat ural and reasonable that lie should cxpect his parents to be as good as their word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her Children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. When boys .and girls learn to doubt their parents' truthfulness ...

He Had Often Heard of Him. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
I He Had Often Heard of Him. It \v;is a contested will case, and one of the witnesses, in the course of giving his evidence, described the testator minutely. "Now, sir," said the counsel for the defence. "I suppose we may take it, from the flattering description you have given of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him iii my life," was the reply. This prevarication, as counsel thought it, was too much, and he said: "Now, now, don't trifle with the court, please! How, 1 ask you, could you, in the name of goodness, de scribe him so mill itely if you never saw liini or never knew him?" "Well," repl>d the witness, and the smile which overspread his features extended to the faces of those in court, "you sec, I married his widow...

CHAPTER XXI. The commotion at Castle O Doyle when Sheila did not appear can be better imagined than described.

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 July 1914
INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were merely the result of accident. An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that he had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding n spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching. He drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When he removed the var l nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house.
