THE USES OF ADVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
THE USES OF ADVERSITY. A young girl wrote a novel a little while ago, and showed It, to a friend of mine who is a clever writer. And this is what my friend said: "You show great promise, and you write well., But your book is shallow. Walt until you nave lived longer and suffered more before you try to deal with such a suoject." Most of us would be rather shailow and cnaracterless people it it were not for the trouoles and'worries that tall to our lot. Haven't you some times admired the almost neaveniy patience of an invalid friena? 'rce chances are that she would never have deevioped patience to anything like the same extent It she naa never suffered. Or perhaps another of our acquaintr ances is always cheerful-an -attrl oute we should' think quite natural it she owned riches, instead of Deing extremely poor. But there is no doubt about it Our worries and vexations are rea.it out opportunlties, and tne sad or QuIa lits of our' lives are the places to exercise our virtues and graces ...

A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
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 this time?" "Takin' a day oft 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." :eplied. the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

USEFUL HINTS. An Eye Saver.-Keep a good mag rifyiug glass in the sewing machine drawer, and see how it saves the eyes.

THE LIMITS OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
THE LIMITS OF SPORT. Let not your recreations be lavish spenders 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 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.
HOW A PRISONER WAS RESCUED A Clever Ruse. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
lOIB A EPRISONER WAS RESCUED A Clever Ruse. In the battle of Poitiers, 1356, a number of Scottish soldiers fought on? the side of the French, and several or them were taken prisoners by the Eng. lish. Amongst them was Sir Archi bald Douglas, half-brother of Lord Wil liam Douglas. Being dressed in a suit of splendid armor, the victors thought they had captured- as indeed they had -some great nobleman. Several of the English were about to strip off 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 out: "You rascal, how is it that you are wearing your master's ar.mor? Come here and pull off my boots." Douglas, seemingly thoroughly cow ed, went humbly forward and drew off a boot, with which Sir William began to beat him. The English onlookers at once inter fered on Douglas's behalf, saying that he was a person of great rank and a lord. "What!" shouted Ramsay, ...

REPAIRING TIRE CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
REPAIRING TIRE CUTS. By repairing: your cuts you cut your tire bills. A little glass cut, a nail hole; or any abrasion that pen etrates the rubber tread to the fabric of the tire, opens a way for dirt and moisture to .creep in. In many an apparently perfect tire, when re moved from the wheel, and deflated, is found a loose tread, under which are dirt and moisture, rotting the fabric. If you have ever found a tire in this condition, you know you have had a strong temptation to call it defective. Almost. without ex ception, the tire having a loose tread and rotting fabric is not at fault. As the tire revolves a suction is produccd, which draws particles of .dirt ,into the cut. Gradually these pu ticles work under the rubber, g' inding and cutting it from the fabric. If neglected, this grinding process iwill work around the tire aiid separato the whole tread from the :fabric. The fabric under the trcad soa:ks up some of the moisture, whicill: chatiuses it to weaken, and a bloA?~ out so...
