A Fine Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

A Fine Speech. "I interviewed Andrew Carnegie in Brussels," said a newspaper corre spondent; "the great little man talk ed, of course, about peace. "He told me that peace must be preached gently, affectionately. You can never convert people by enraging them. You can't fight for peace. "He said a peace advocate of the fiery, virulent bitter school made a speech one night at a banquet in Pittsburg, and when he'd finished an old man shook him by the hand and said:— " 'That was a fine speech, sir.' "■'Thanks. Glad you like it.' " 'Yes,' said the old man, 'I liked it first rate, but, excuse me, sir, what are you for—peace or war?'"

HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. Two of the commonest causes ~ot" neuralgia are neglectful decaying teeth and eye-strain, n may be that no one partcular tooth is badly decayed, there may be 110 actual toothache that the sufferer can point to as the rea son for those shooting pains about the cheek ov jaw, which he endures almost nightly. Nevertheless, in about 50 per cent, of the cases the teeth are at the root of the trouble. Clearly the dentist in such cases is the right doctor, and as a rule a me dical man will send his patient to the dentist. Many people whose neural gia is due to eye-strain are not con scious of anything the matter with their sight, it may be only when they seek medical advice that the sugges tion of eye trouble is made to them; they go to the oculist, gla.sse3 are pre-, scribed, and the neuralgia disappears. we may be in a certain physical condition which renders us particular- - ly ready for neuralgia, the scale being turned by comparatively such small things as a drau...

Quite Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

— Wiimi i nit"irimniTnn~nr~ \nnti-rrtn ' Quite Enough. { Mi-. Irvin S. Cobb, the American writer of short stories, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. He hurried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit 1 nesa to his character." ! "Not while I'm his lawyer," was the , reply. "I know just what would hap i pen. The other man's lawyer would j ask your occupation. And you would ; say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the S lawyer would pet up and stand over I you and look into the dark recesses j of your heart for a time. And by i and by, despairing of finding one j sweet, aspiring thought in you, he | would turn to the jury. And he would j exchange an intelligent, libellous j smile wth the twelve. And then he ! would sit down, and, without even • troubling to look in your direction, j lie would say. 'That is quite enou...

A GOOD VICLIN STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

A GOCD V!CLIN STORY. A young man, poorly clothed, pre sented himself before a dealer in curiosities near the Palais Royal. "Sir," said he, showing a violin thai ho carried, "1 am a musical artist; this is the season of balls and parties, I have just had a long illness which has exhausted my purse, my only blaci; coat is in pawn; 1 shall be much oblig ed if you will lend me ten francs to redeem it. 1 will leave as security one of the violins you see, for I have two; it is an excellent instrument, i shall return for it as soon as, thanks tn my coat, 1 shall have earned enough money for the purpose." The young man had such an honest bearing that the dealer lent him ten francs, and kept the violin, which he hung up in the shop. The next day a gentleman, well dressed, wearing at his button hole the riband of the Legion of Honor, was choosing from the dealer's stock of goods some shell work. Seeing the violin, he took it up, examining it nar rowly. "What is the price of that instru ment?"...

Smoke-Cured. ♦ To bo strictly accurate, it was not a .smoking compartment at nil, but the youth was puffing away at n chubby briar, despite the pained ex pression of the old lady's face. . By-and-by the old lady, who wu the only other occupant of tho car riage, began to get excited. "Young man," she btu-kod, so far as her coughing would permit her, "do you know that it's wrong to smoke ?" "Well," replied the lad, as he en veloped tho old party in a wreath of pungent smoke,. "I use tobacco for my health." "Health !" ejaculated the victim, in ' spluttering tones. "'Nonsense t You never heard of anyone being curod by smoking. " "Yos. I have," declared the youth, still pulling uway like a furnace chimney. "That's tho way they cure pigs." " Then smoke away," cried th« ■heroino of the story, "There ut»y ;be hope for you yet !"

Checkmated. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

Checkmated. As most people know, when travel ling by train in America, the passen ger at the depot of departure hands over his luggage to the officials, and on payment of a fee receives a metal check, which he returns in exchange for his trunks 011 arrival at his des tination. The system has its advan tages, but also its drawbacks prob ably, the fatal one of loss of the checks, for the baggage master will only hand over the luggage on receipt of the vouchers. A leading light of English Comic Opera, Miss C.P., was going from New York to Philadelphia to join a com pany. Like a prudent young lady, she packed away her dollar bills in her swaribill corsets, but her baggage checks she had left in her pocket. Pre sently she fell asleep and did not ful ly awake till, in a "semi-dozy" state, she fancied she felt a slight pull at her dress. Opening her eyes she found that a very gentlemanly looking man was sitting next to her. She put her hand in her pocket. The checks were gone. At the momen...

ONLY JOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

ONLY JOKING. The following incident occurred re cently on the down mail train between Lahore and Amballa. There were five European passengers in a first-class reserved carriage. The guard of the train was an Eurasian of pronouncedly dark complexion, but a smart and in telligent man at his work for all that. One of tiie first class passengers, who was a bounder, thought he would take a rise out of the guard, so, calling hirn to the .carriage, said: "I say, guard, I've got a hat here, a real silk bow ler, complete in case which I recently purchased from an outfitter's of Bom bay. It cost me 30 rupees, and the only fault about it is that it is a trifle too small for me. Judging by the size of your head, it will probably fit you. Would you mind accepting it Y" The guard, gratified at the prospect of such a present, readily expressed acceptance. The passenger, holding tho hat over the panel of the carriage, said, "Here you are, guard; here's the hat, case and all, but just as the guard p...

Growing Sunshine in Bottles. T Without sunlight lift would be ex tinct upo:i our globe. And because (sunlight is the source of life in plants and animals ami human be ings, scientists all over the world have long boen puzv.lhig their heads in hopes of discovering some- means by which the rays of the sun may be utilised directly. A l-'rench engineer by tho name of Clmrles Vinter has discovered a method of growing sunshine in bot tles on tlie roof of his house. To Btore up sunrays in bottles and change them into electricity he uses two thin platiha discs, one of which is placed in a- solution of hj'Pochlorid of iron, the other in quicksilver. The sun shining upon the platina discs thus immersed produces chemical changes which in turn generate electricity—the great modern driving force. These magic bottles w'ill store up sun energy in ordinary daylight, and ean be made "to do their work even on cloudy days. A battery of Ave hundred individual bottles exposed on the roof of a houso will...
