A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 22 April 1914
A Day In the Country. The fresh-oomplexioned young police man from the country betrayed by his self-conscious air the disquietude he felt on first going on duty In a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of gaze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he was not .noticed, the new constable ap proached the urchin. "Now, then," began the policeman, "what are you sitting there for all thia time?" "Takin' a day off in the country," replied the arab. The inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the species, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin* a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see the country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course," replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 22 April 1914
WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For wonsn, a capacity for tears Is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Tears—warm , and ready ones—are a sure preserva- ■ tive of feminine beauty. i "Tears are the natural outlet of emo- I tion, a j;;;'t of liquid lightning-rod ; which dissipates excitement and pas- j Gion. • j "The woman who cannot weep is • she who ^keeps up her powers of thinking, and whose fncia/ry.ines and grey hairs come reaaily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily i against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked effect in general tem perament. "Women who weep easily have cor respondingly licrht hearts, tender, de> monstrativR, and Impulsive ways, am' a charm which dry-eyed women lack'
THE LIMITS OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 22 April 1914
,&lt;?: 1 THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish Bpenders of your time, but choose such which are healthful, short, tran sient, recreative, and apt to refresh you; but at no hand dwell in them or make them your great employment, for he that spends his time in sports and calls it recreation is like him , whose garment is all made of fringes 1 and his meat nothing but sauces; they are healthless, chargeable, and use less. And, therefore, avoid such games which require much time or long at tendance, or which are apt to steal the affections from more severe em ployments. ......

Several ol the English were about to strip eff his armor, when Sir William Ramsay, of Colluthie, who was also a prisoner, happening to catch Sir Archibald's eye, gave him a meaning look. Pre tending to be very angry he cried put: "You rascal, how is it that you are wearing your master's armor? Coma here and pull off my boots."

WHAT MEN WluL DO FOR THE LOVE OF WOMEN. For love of womaa battles have beei (ought, kingdoms have been lost, fo:&lt; i.uues forfeited, and whole countries set at sixes and sevens. Jacob was willing to serve foil Rach&lt;jl seven years. Launcelot pre ferred loye to honor; his love for th« queen was more to him than a seat ai King Arthur's table. All the world knows the story o! Cleopatra's bewitching of Caesar. Tha world is filled with just such stories to-day, ana there is just as much ro mance in our midst as there ever was, Because they don't wear Romau togas or suits of armor, or fight in tournaments, is no more reason,, for saying there is no romance than ther« would be to say because men don't use bows and arrows In warfare na more battles are fought. The passions are just as real a& ever. It's merely the ways of express ing them that differ. Men are quite as willing to sacrt f;co themselves for the fair object oi their love as ever they were.
