"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

"SCOTLAND FOR EVER." j A few months ago a noble lord j whose finances are usually iu a state a which some folk describe as "shaky," j had occasion to visit a small town in [ Scotland. Of course his lordship put iup at the best hotel, and proceeded to regale himself in lordly fashion, re gardless of expense. Preparatory to > the end of his visit the scion of no bility had an interview with the pro prietor, which resulted in that worthy accepting his lordship's cheque, which, however, was dated some six months ahead, the canny Scot having allowed a wide margin of profit as in terest. A fortnight later the ama ed noble man was quietly handed the self same cheque by the factor of his es tate in payment, of the sale of some cattle 'belonging to his lordship. The artful hotel proprietor, having a bro ther in England in the_ cattle-dealing line, and being rather 'dubious about the nobleman's, ability to meet his li abilities, had sent the cheque to his relative with the injunction to ob...

BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

I BUDDHA'S FINGERMARKS. I By Wm. North. There have been many awful floods in India, but none quite bo appalling as the one which devastated tho lan-i before the squirrel obtained his pret ent livery. It sounds odd to dato u great occurrence by so apparently tri fling a matter, yet curiously enough, the flood in question is solely remem bered by the squirrel's change of dress. He was asleep, and so were his wife and family—the babies were the tini est little creatures, but he was very proud of them—when the relentless volumes of water came crashing down the valley. It uprooted the tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree in which he was living at that time, and the tree with Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and their precious in fants went floating down the tide. The position was critical. If tho poor, startled little squirrel had given himself up for lost and had spent tho time in recalling his past sins, and in taking a fond farew°!l "f his dear ones, none could have blamed him....

Putting It Nicely. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

Putting It Nicely. A group of four convicts were over heard the other day chatting about what they were "in for," and each one in turn told his experience. The first one had killed a man, the second had put another man's signa ture to a cheque, while the third one had gone in for a plurality 01 spouses. The fourth man, however, did not seem inclined to make any disclo sures. He was a sanctimonious-look ing rnaiij. who, although a professional gambler, was called "parson." "Come, parson, what brought you here?" ■ euro to. Bxiy."-: said: he. . .. '.'Out with it! Shoot anybody?" ask ed one. "No, .I didn't shoot anyone; but since you would like to know, I got 'time' because I didn't build a church!" Deep silence fell upon the group. No such excuse for penal servitude had ever been heard before, and the "parson" was asked to explain. "Well, yon see, a congregation raised several hundred pounds to build a church, and handed it over to ;ne to build," and I didn't build it. That's all!"

THE CANARY. About threo hundred anil fifty yours ago a ship, returning from the island! in th>s Atlantic which people then call ed tbo "Fortunate Isles," but which wpro undoubtedly the Ciinaries, went ashore on the coast of Italy, near Leg horn. A case of beautiful birds cap tured ill those islands was broken,. *nd the - birds were liberated. Through some caprice they did not take rcfiigo on the mainland, but went to the island of Elba, where in due time they nested, and bred and increased in number. Tlie Italians discovered that flioy wore ndtnirablo singers, and begin to capture them and sell tliem_in canes. This, gave rise to a traffic which soon completely cleared the island of Elba of "canary, birds," so that not one was left there In a wild state. From that time the history of the canary has -been a record of perpetual imprisonment and transformation of his app" iranco and character.
