THE MILLHANDS' PETITION By John Ranklne. Nurse Edgar, of St. Blanc's Hospi tal, stared at the letter. Messrs. Blanc and Hulton, solicitors. Temple-lane, desired lier presence In their office at her earliest convenience. For what purpose Nell Edgar could not imagine.

THE STORY OF A COFFIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
THE STORY OF A COFFIN. The Paris iCorrespondents are tell ing the story of what happened to a magnificent coffin which a widow named Mme. Lesserde had made to measure for her thirty years ago. ? It was in varnished oak, -with -sil ver handles and silver fittings, lined with lead, with a covering of blue satin over the head. Pinned to the blue satin were crosses, images and chaplets. Of late years Mme. Lesserde had placed in the coffin the garments in which she was to be buried, and daily she would spend hours in smoothing them out or in re-arranging the chap lets and images. Then .she died, at the age of eighty three. A municipal inspector was called in, tor the old lady had no rela tives to make ararngements for her funeral. The inspector examined the coffin carefully. It was of the regulation size, and bore the requisite seal o£ the police commissary. All the same, there was something wrong. The coffin, our careful inspector dis covered, had been made by an under taker who five ye...

LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
LOCATION OF THE ORCHARD. While many who claim to speak with the voice of authority assert that an orchard should always be upon land which slopes in a given uirection, we have seen many a gooil orchard iri which the slope was in other directions. A belt of wood or other windbreak may be sufficient protection for it even if it does blos som early. What is of more import ance is that it should he well drain ed. As an old orcliardist once tol;l us, "trees will not stand it to have wet feet all the time any better than you and I would." We think lie said apple trees should not be where the water was within four feet of the surface, while pear trees might be set within three feet of the water level if the water was not stagnant, and quinces within one foot. Pears will do well in a clay soil, while apples and peaches will not unless it is thoroughly underdrained, and even then peaches will not do as well as on light sandy or gravelly soil. In setting an orchard avoid spots that are known ...

KELLEWAY'S OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
KELLEWAY'S OPERATION When Kelleway first came to Kirta pur he was as raw as they make them. Two years with a healthy regiment and six months of general duty at one of tho large Presidency hospitals was not likely to teach him much about the country he was to spend his life in. But, like the rest of us, he suffered from the delusion that he knew it inside. and out. To him the native mind was as an open book with the springs and motives of its actions re corded in the clearest print. Tha\ at any rate, was his idea. In this he was not singular. I have suffered from the same disease myself, and know the symptoms. It is the fixed idea of the Indian official, and he does not even hold a monopoly of it. American tour ists, travelling members ot Parliament, reporters, judges, merchant . princes, policemen, and, in fact, any and every European who visits these shores car ries within himself the knowledge that he and he alone properly understands the workings ot the Eastern mind. H is only th...
How Strange. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
How Strange. The other day a youth, who is rath er too fond of practical joking, sud denly accosted a prefect stranger in the street, saying: "Excuse me, sir, but did you drop a sovereign? and he held out tl\o coin mentioned between his thumb anil finger. The man whom he addressed look ed at the coin, put on an expression of surprise, and made a hurried search of his pockets. "Why, so I did," he answered, "and I hadn't missed it. Thank you," and he held out his hand. Instead of handing the coin to the man, however, the joker drew out a note book, and said: "I thought so." He then took the name and address Oi the loser, dropped the coin into lus own pocket and turned away. "Oh, I didn't find one," said the youth; "but it struck me that in a large city like this there must be a great deal of money lost, and upon inquiry I find you are the twenty first man who has lost a sovereign | this'morning."
And P[?]aps He'd Think Again. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
And P'iJaps He'd Think Again. I'd love to pay the income tax, I'd pay it with delight; I'd pile tlic.stuff in precious stacks I'd sit up half the night. I'd try to be the first to pay I'd be it if I could; And then i d go my cheerful way At least, I think I would. Of course, I'd want an income big So I could pay the more; The deeper down I had to dig The richer stream I'd pour. If I had coupons piled in racks, With millions to the good, How joyously I'd pay the tax At least, I think I would.
A CURIOUS GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
A CURIOUS GRAVE. Ia. the old churchyard on the Mar ienstrasse, which leads into the mar ketplace of Hanover, there is a some what remarkable grave, which affords a striking commentary on the van ity of human intentions. The grave contains all that is left of a. woman who was laid to rest more than 130 years ago, and the monument with which it is surmount ed is of a very solid nature. The tra dition runs that the dead woman was a beauty in her day, and that, fearing that by some chance her grave might ?Jie opened, and the ravages of mortal ity exposed to view, she took every precaution to preserve the seal of the grave unbroken. The inscription on the front of the pedestal runs as follows: "Henriette Juliane Caroline von Ruling fnee Willich). Born at Nim bnrg the 19th of January, 1756, died at Hanover the 15th of April, 1782. She gave three sons to Heaven, and having lived on earth as she now lives Above, was permitted to hasten to her Eternal Home." In the rearward face of the stone...
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD BOOKED. The first thing that strikes the liberty-loving person when he settles down in Berlin, or even puts up at a boartling-hcuse for a-short stay, is the "Anmeldungspflicht," or duty of re porting oneself to the police. Before he has been in the house many hours he is presented with a printed form on which he is compelled to lill in aii kinds of particulars about himself under penalty of a lieavy fine and eventually imprisonment if lie fails to do so, or if he writes down de tails which the police afterwards as certain to be untrue. First of all the newcomer has to 1 write down his full name, the exact date of his birthday, the name of the place in which he was 'born, and the nature of his occupation. Then he ! must state what his religion is, and if he believes in none at all he must duly enter himself as an infidel. Fur ther, he must state what his nation ality is, and whether he is in posses sion of a passport to prove his iden tity. These particula...

WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
I WHEN MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE. If neither husband nor wife has married for love, but merely for mon ey, or any other mundane motive. If meals are ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it. If the income, though well managed and made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If the husband be a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold .matters, and if he thinks he knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character. If the husband tries to be mistress as well as master of the house, or the wife master as well as mistress of the house. . If, when dark days come, husband and wife forget they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If the wife is totally ignorant of even the rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dres...
Settling a Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
Settling a Dispute. "I must insist, sir," exclaimed the pompous person, "that the device is a f:re-plug." "And 1 am equally confident that it is a water-plug," retorted the- mild in dividual. . Now, my dear sir," puffed ? the pompous person, "this device was put Iicvc primarily as a plug on which to attach a hose in case of fire in the vicinity. Therefore it is absolutely impossible that it can be anything but a fire-plug." "You are entirely wrong," declared the other. "This plug was placed here to supply water. Consequently, it is a water-plug. If it supplied fire -why, then, of course, it would be a fire-plug." The pompous person stopped a pass ing pedestrian. "Sir," he began, "I desire to appeal to your intelligence. This gentleman has becor,:e involved in an argument with m«\ He insists that this device i:; a water-plug, while I, with equal confidence, claim that it is a fire plug. Will you kindly settle the ques tion for us?" "Certainly," replied the pedestriau. "You say this i...
Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep .a diary con vince me of one thing." "What's that?" "That there arc mighty few days in the year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." ' Friendship can sometimes show its strength as much by the readiness with which it accepts benefits as by the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side. "Life," my breddren," said the ne-' gro philosopher, "am mos'ly made up of prayin' for rain, an' then wishin' it would clear off." When we are dis appointed at not get something we' have set our hearts on, we must re member that if we got it, it might not have made us as happy as we think. The whirligig of fashion may bring round the most sudden and dazzling changes, and the duties of the toilet may multiply like leaves in Vallom brosa; but there is nothing that will make a woman stand before her look ing-glass so long as a sunburnt nose. The charm of life is its uncertainty. When you feel inclin...
THE LAND OF TAXES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 11 June 1914
THE LAND OF TAXES. Everything in Japan is taxed. There are stamps on all bank cheques, and when you pay your bill your receipt has a stamp. Every 'business is tax ed according to the amount of its vol ume, and every peddler, chauffeur, and jinriksha man pays a license. There is a tax on medicines, on sake and liquors and on Japanese soy, the sauce which the people use with their food. All incomes pay taxes, and these grow with the amount of one's proper ty. There are about S,000,000 famil ies in Japan, and all are expected to pay a certain percentage if they make more than £35 a year. There are, of course, taxes on lands, which now run from 3 per cent, upward to 17 per cent.,-according to the class of the land. There are inheritance taxes, mining taxes, taxes on stock exchan ges, and the issue of bank-notes. There are customs duties on every thing imported, and there is a special tax on travellers, whether they go by steamboat, steam train, or an electric car. This tax depends on th...
