WEARING BLACK. For a Year or a Day. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
WEARING BLACK. For a Year or a Day. The question of how long mourning should be worn by relatives is fre quently discussed. Nowadays the feeling, and at times the expressed wishes of the dead, rule a good deal. It was formerly, however, the cus tom for mourning to be worn of a deeper character than at the present moment. The correct periods now are one year for mother, father, daugh ter or son; six months for grandpar ents, sisters and brothers; three months for aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews; six weeks for cousins, and even less if the relationship is very distant. For a husband the widow wears 'weeds' for a year and a day; plain mourning for another year. Black without crepe is complimentary mourning. ?

IN THE AGE OF WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
IN THE AGE OF WHEELS. By Charles C. Jones. 'Things have Come to a pretty pass,' complained the plain citizen, 'when an honest, law-abiding man .cannot go out on the public highways without being run over, -smashed, crushed, broken, twisted and other wise maltreated and abused by ? the ever-present wheeled vehicle. 'If I stay in my own front yard,' he continued, 'I am safe; but if I set foot in the street in front of my house or elsewhere my life is put in jeo pardy, 'my liberty is curtailed because I am at liberty only to jump for my life, and my happiness is placed be yond my reach because the only thing that would make me happy is the ut ter extinction of all vehicles that tra vel on wheels — excepting always those that run on rails. ''You may think that I ought to stay on the sidewalk, that being the real zone of safety, but I cannot agree with you. Day before yesterday I was strol ling peaceably along in front of a park and a big brOwn car went up the street so fast that althoug...

The Dark Tunnel. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
The Dark Tunnel. A young Irishman returned home after having made some money farm ing in Canada. He decided to give his poor old father an outing, and take him to Dub- ? lin to see the sights. It had been a great event for the old man, who had never been in a train before, but he entered it with fear and trembling amid many out spoken anticipations of what would happen to him. ? All went well until the train sudden ly dashed into a tunnel, when bang went the old man's fist on his son's nose as he exclaimed: 'I. told you something would happen, you young villain; I've lost my sight!' Every wrong-doer has a ready ex cuse. Therefore it is better to refrain from excusing ourselves, even with good reason. To forego excuses is an element of strength. 'Good-bye for ever!' said the young man, coldly, as he prepared to depart. - 'I leave you now, never to return.' 'Good-bye,' said the fair maid in the parlor scene.. 'But before you go let me remind you that yoiu can tele phone me in the morn...

Accordingly we went down and there on the deck was Jacko, a pet monkey of the sailors and a- great fav««tej marching- Vp and down with the greatest of joy, eyeing now and then his arm, if it may be so called, on wbich was the missing bracelet.
