A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 24 June 1914
A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. A curious incident occurred 36 hours after leaving Southampton. A largo bird perched itself on tiip sum mit of the main mast, a sailor went .up and caught it and brought it down, and it proved to be a brown owl! I am superstitious about owls, and was v ry depressed, especially as I had left my favorite sister ill. The sailors tied a string around the poor, dazed creature's leg and were rather ill treating it, so I offered them two shil lings for the ljird, which tliey accept ed, and I then let it out of my port hole. The captain told me that they often caught even -smaller birds on tlie mast, especially when the wind was blowing off the land. On arriv ing at Lisbon wo received a telegram to say that 36 hours after my depar ture, my sister had passed away, and also^Lady Macdonell, the wife of Gen eral Sir A. Macdonell, "my 'brother-in law—it was a strange coincidence!— "Reminiscences of a Diplomatic Life," by Lady Macdonell.

FOR QUIET MOMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 24 June 1914
FOR QUIET MOMENTS. Words are the coiu of thought. Content is the short cut to happi ness. Aim at the highest and at least you soar. The sweetest grapes hang ,tighest That is gold what is wortli gold. We ■ make our disappointments by being too exacting. The streams of small pleasures fill the lake of happiness. By the" street By-and-bye we arrive at the house of Never. Better a diamond .with a Saw than a pebble without one. Soon ripe, soon rotten; soon wise, soon foolish. ; He who has no plagues makes him self some. It is our own most prominent fault that looks ugliest in another. It is by what we do, not 'by wliat is done for us, that we become strong or good. » The man who has no money in his purse must have honey in his mouth. .When men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it bo good or bad. • He who would eat the kernel mils', crack the nut—he who would havs the gain must have the pain.

Waters: Why, it's plain enough that if a man marries a widow he doesn't marry a miss.
MONDAY, 8.30 A.M. Some Reflections on a Rolling Copper. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
MONDAY, ii.30 A.M. Cime Reflections on a ltciilnvj Copper. "The coj/pcr'^ '1 r'"—this is the com mon phrase of tar,X '"-outlay, the housewife's call to the weekly *;et us follow it v.ith n question that is not so simple as it sounds : "What is it boiling for? Mo.-1 people would answer, "Why. to to'*' the dirt out of the clothes! of course." Quite so, but for health's sake something more than dirt has to be done away with in the household washing, namely, the seeds of infectious disease. Infection may be communicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single patient, of which the smallpo:; epidemic is a case in point. It is due to tiny organisms, hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease. These float in the air or dust and drift to clothes and house linen as naturally as steel draws, to a magnet; we call them " Germs," or seeds of disease, because just as an ordinary seed grows to a plant, so a duease germ on a human body b...
PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
PIONEERS OF EMPIRE. Adventures Among Cannibals. "Of the many gallant men," the •late Llord Shaf'esbury once said, ''who have done, heroes' .work as Scouts of Empire, I know none who bore a braver heart through more perils than James Chalmers, who was the pioneer and virtual founder of British New Guinea." , If ever a man was born'for adven ture It was surely this son of an Aber deen stone-mason, who was cradled one August day in 1841, . in an obscure fishing village on Loch Fyne; and who seems to have-imbibed a passion for roaming \vith the first breaths of sea-air he drew. Before, he had entered his teens, James Chalmers had made a local hero of himself by saving two lives at great risk" to his own, and was known as the most fearless lad in the district. It was an' unkind fate that condemned him for a few years to a stool in solicitor's ofilce at Inver ary; and it was a glad day when em ancipation came; after three years' training," he was sent away to the far South Seas'as mission...
THE GENTLE CHAUFFEUR. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
the gentle chauffeur. Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, was be ing congratulated at a luncheon on his ordinance forbidding chauffeurs to blow their horns in'the crowded busi ness sections of the city. "Chauffeurs think," he said, "that they need only blow their horns and the pedostrians will leap out of the way. Let the chauffeur drive with care,, remembering that the pedes trians' right is supreme. "Why. if something isn't now done, the chauffeurs in their arrogance will be getting up a horn code for pedes trians to learn and obey—a code something like this— _ "One toot: Throw a quick back headspring for the sidewalk. "Two toots: Dive over the car. "Three toots: Lie down calmly; it is too late to escape; 'but we will go over you . as easily as possible if you keep very still. "One long and two short toots: Throw yourself forward and we will save both your arms. "One short anil two long toots: Throw yourself backward and one leg will be saved. "Four toots: It's all up with you. but we pro...
