SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914
SECRET NAVAL CODE BOOK. Pew things are so jealously guarded as the secret code book of the Uni ted States Navy. It is a book of sig nals-not the ordinary "wig-wag" sig nals used in the daily direction of the fleet by a commanding officer-hut a code of signals to be used solely in time of war and in the presence of ail enemy. These secret code books are issued only to the executive officers of a ship, who are enjoined to protect them against theft by every possible means. These books are threatened not so much by the ordinary thief as by secret emissaries of other Govern ments who desire to obtain knowledge of what the battleships would do in time of action. Governments have no scruples against theft in such cases. TIk- loss of one of these secret code books by an officer, unless explained to the entire satisfaction of the Sec retary of the Navy, would mean court martial and probable expulsion from the service. To the honor of the United States Service, no officer lias ever yet 'been...
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914
THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist has thrilled thousands, but never, perhaps, did his pen do better work ?than when it formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers: - "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such a one cares for is the blaze of color when it conics, if even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar deners born, it is otherwise. The poor woman, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens its gorgeous dazzling cup, white as t...

VICTIMS OF VERBOMANIA. TWO EXAMPLES. A book published bv l'rolessor Ps sip Louric, of Brussels, on the \ ii j tiras of vcrbomania. They arc, it seems, numerous, and public meet ings or Parliamentary debates arc responsible for some ot the extreme :ases. The professor believes that i-erbomania .is contagious in public meetings. He gives the example of a doctor in a small town, who had ;;rcat difficulty in speaking. He hesi tated and stuttered whenever he had to say three words in public. For years he objected to be clectcd to the Chamber of Deputies. Finally, ha :onsented to be a candidate, and was elected. A sudden transformation- followed. The doctor had a furious desire to speak in public on any and every subject. His speeches were bad ; iic himself became confused ; but he :ould not resist the passion1 for speaking. During all the time he was Deputy he struggled in vain against himself, and when his term was up he positively refused to be re-elected. The mania for speech making, ...
