What Puzzled Him. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

What Puzzled Him. An old Irish laborer walked into the luxurious studio of a famous artist, and asked for money to obtain a meal. lie ex plained that he had just been discharged from hospital, and was not strong enough to work. The artist gave him a shilling, and he ri^nnrfprl One of four ladies, art students, who were present, said : ( Mr. Iyonghair, can't we hire the old man and sketch him ? He'd make such a splendid picture. ' The artist ran out and caught him, and said : ( If you can't work, and want to earn five shillings come back to my rooms. The young ladies want to paint you.' The old fellow hesitated ; so the artist remarked : ' It won't take long, and it's an easy way to make five shillings.' ' I know that,' was the reply, ' but I was a wondering how I'd get the paint off after wards . ' The guest glanced up and down the bill, of fare without enthusiasm. ' Oh, well,' he decided finally, ' you may bring me a dozen fried oysters.' The colored waiter became all apologies. 1 ...

Ugliest People on Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

Ugliest People on Earth. The ugliest people on earth are the cele brated Canoe Indians, about the lowest type of savages — lower even than the earth eating niggers of the Californian peninsula. Though there are thousands of them , they spend daylight on the water — each family occupying its canoe — returning to shore only when darkness falls, where they build a fire upon the rocks, and cuddle round it in a most affectionate manner, to keep them ftcivcs .ijLuiii ucc/-ing. At the bottom of each boat, near the centre, some earth is piled, and on it a small fire of sticks is kept burning for the partial comfort of the occupants. Uglier-looking mortals than there people never breathed . They are a rusty iron colour with flat noses, high cheek bones, enormous chins and jaws, crocodile mouths filled with long, yellow teeth, no forehead, extremely wide fat faces, over which coarse hair falls in matted lumps, in figure .squatty and round shouldered . Though big headed and round abdomen ? the...

Lucky Birth Stones. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

Lucky Birth Stones. By her in January born No gem but garnets should be worn ; They will ensure her constancy, True friendship, and fidelity. The February born shall find Sincerity and peace of mind, Freedom from passion and from care, If they the amethyst will wear. Who in this world of ours her eyes In March first open shall be wise. In days of peril fir in and brave, And wear a bloodstone to her grave. She who from April dates her years, Diamonds shall wear lest bitter tears For vain repentance flow; this stone, Emblem for innocence is known. Who first beholds the light of day In spring's sweet flowery month of May, And wears an emerald all her life, Shall be a loved and happy wife. ' Who comes with summer to this earth, ; And owes to June her hour of birth, With ring of agate on her hand, , .?; .;..-. Can health, wealth, and long life command. The glowing ruby shall adorn . ; Those who in warm July are born ; ' Then will they be exempt and free From love's doubt and anxiety. Wea...

He Got His Rise. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

He Got His Rise. The diminutive office-boy had worked hard on .a '.'salary' of : four shillings a week. He was a subdued little chap, faithful and quiet. Finally, however, he plucked up courage enough to ask for an increase. 'How much would you like ?' inquired his em ployer. 1 Well,' answered the lad, (I don't think that two shillings more a week would be too much.' ' You are rather a small boy to be earning six' shillings a week. M suppose I am,' he replied. 'I know I'm small for my age, but to tell the truth, since I've worked here I've been so busy I haven't had time to grow.' He got the rise.

What Is Bravery ? [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

What Is Bravery? Ill-temper and discontent often prevent human beingvS from becoming heroes and heroines. It is not brave to suffer and to grumble, any more than it is brave to put up with things because there is one way of getting out of doing so. There is ever only one thing which can be brave, and that is the spirit within us. We listen snellbound to tales' of fen ri ess ridimr acts of daring done in foreign lands; but we fail to listen spellbound to tales of weary, loving women who cook and clothe a brood of tiny, souls that cluster around them, sometimes when the children's sustenance means the mother's hunger. These women are heroines just as much as the men who leave their country in order to fight for their king are heroes. They are brave children, too — children who blindly trust and never reason for themselves, being certain that what the mother-voice desires must be good and right, even if it should mean that they must suffer pain. These are little heroes. It is by no mea...

Electricity in the Atmosphere. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

Electricity in the Atmosphere. Science has not yet been able to give an ulti matum on the very intricate and vexed question, What is electricity ? This may seem strange, seeing that the times in which we live will be known in the future annals of the race as the electrical age. The want of a satisfactory settlement of the question does not, however, interfere in the least with the practical development of the science. Not much more than half a century has passed away since men began to marvel at the discoveries of their dav. The barriers of space and time that had so long defied every effort to reduce them seemed at length to diminish before the astounding inventions of the telegraph and the telephone. All that was required to put men far distant from one another into immediate and direct communication were a pair of electric batteries and a connecting link in the form of a conducting wire. With their simple and cheap appliances great things have been achieved. The ' Ivatest Intelli...

"If." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

?.'If.' If the world were draped with roses, with no thorns along our way, And there were no clouds to gather, and no night, but always day, Should we all be free from longings, should we think our lot sublime, Or should we still be yearning for an even hap pier clime ? Yes, with roses all around us, and with sunshine nil 4- 1 -* j-v /?

A True Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

A True Story, . Some years ago two gentlemen who had been left' executors to the will of an old friend were much puzzled as to the meaning of a scrap of paper foiind in his effects, on which was written : 'Seven hundred pounds in Till.' / The executors made an exhaustive search, but a seemingly use less one, as not a vestige of a Till or of seven hundred pounds could be found ; and thinking the paper probably referred to a past transaction, thev wound the estate and sold the collection of books to a local bookseller. ' One evening the scrap of paper formed the after dinner discussion between the two executors, and one suddenly exclaimed : 'I've solved it ! Do you remember the : folio edition of Tillotson's sermons we sold ? Perhaps this was the mysteri ous 'Till.' . ?-.????? . No time was lost next day in going to the book seller, who had not as yet disposed of the volume of sermons. The ? executors at once bought it back, and . surely enough, carefully dispersed among the leaves we...

Jewel Legends. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 21 August 1909

Jewel Legends. ' The beautiful stone of protection is the most valued of jewels, and its history is ever entwined with the great ones of the earth. A fiery trail of great events, passions, and crimes follow the gem, while its passage from one owner to another is frequently stained with blood and with tears. The famous Koh-i-Noor belonged ever to him who Tiari the virtorv over his enemies, but a diamond necklace hastened the ruin of poor Marie Antoin ette, that queen of tears The ancient Greeks called the diamond the un subduable vStone, because of its hardness. It was said to give courage to its wearer, to dispel fears, to protect from evil influences. The warriors of old time engraved the image of Mars upon it to obtain for its possessor success in battle ; and Napoleon the Great wore a diamond in the hilt of his sword as a protection from enemies. But the jewel was credited with softer virtues. Cleopatra The Amphitheatre, I/Kijka Fatj.s. [//. Phillips, Photo. believed that it attr...
