The Choice. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
^ The Choice. 'Can he sing nicely?' 'Well, he offered to sing the baby to sleep the other night, and his wife said, 'No, let her keep on crying!'' The average depth of the sea is about 12,000 feet; the average height of the land above sea level is about ,1,500 feet. The collection of tales called the 'Thousand and One Nights,' or the ' -Arabian Nights,' - is of unknown date and authorship. It was first made known in Europe about the end of the seventeenth century by Antoine Gal land, who was employed by Colbert to 'collect manuscripts in the East. The copy of the Arabic manuscript brought by Gauand irom Syria contained a marginal note dated 1584, and from in ternal evidence the middle of the fif teenth century has been fixed upon as the probable period of the composition of the work. Some of the tales were evidently borrowed by the writer from other authors, and Vori Hammer iden tifies at least the plot and some of the stories of the 'Arabian Nights' with an earlier collection in Pe...

Touching Verse. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Touching Verse. At first she touches up her hair To see if it's in place, And then with manner debonnair She touches up her face. A touch to curls behind her ear, A touch to silken collar, And then she's off to hubby dear — To touch him for a dollar. Why is a waiter like a racehorse? — Because he runs for cups, plates and steaks. Have courage enough to review your own conduct, to condemn it where you detect your own faults, to amend it to the best of your ability, and to make good resolves for your future guidance, and to keep them. The gentleness of perfect freedom can only be won by the discipline of self-restraint.
THE CHEMIST AND CIVILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
THE CHEMIST AND CIVILISATION. It is everywhere admitted that the chemist has played a prominent part J in the advancement of the human race, and his work can be traced back through centuries. It is supposed that the name 'chemistry' was originally derived from the word 'Chemia,' the ancient name of Egypt. The first ref erence to the word 'Chemia' occurs in the Byzantine writers of the fourth century, in connection with the art of manufacturing gold. It has also' been understood to mean the 'Black' or 'Secret Art.' We have become so accustomed now' to the rapid development of science that it is hard to appreciate the enor mous strides chemistry has made dur ing the last hundred years. Since the first announcement by John Daltoh of his famous atomic theory, hundreds of distinguished men have continued to increase the world's wealth of knowledge and have benefited mankind in numerous ways. For instance, in ? agriculture, the oldest industry known, until the publication of Liebig's nota...

'The moon and stars may fall, But' I must speak' — this time she sighed — 'I love you, that is all. 'If you should dare to tell me no, My life would, be a wreck ? ' 'Excuse me, dear,' she whispered low, 'There's something round your neck.'
THINGS TO FORGET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
THINGS TO FORGET.. If you see a tall fellow ahead of a crowd, A leader of men, marching fearless and proud, And you know of a tale whose mere , telling aloud Would cause his proud head to in an guish be bowed. It's a pretty .good plan to forget it. If you know of a skeleton hidden away In a closet, and guarded, and kept from the day In the dark; and whose showing, whose sudden display, Would cause grief and sorrow and lifelong dismay, It's a pre.cy good plan to forget it. If you know of a thing that will darken the joy Of a man or a woman, a girl or a boy, That will wipe out a smile, or the least way annoy, A fellow, or cause any gladness to cloy, It's a pretty good plan to forget it.
Everyone Catered For. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Everyone Catered For. There was a loud-voiced Cheap Jack at a country market recently selling books. 'Ladies and gentlemen,' he shouted to a little crowd, 'this is the book for everyone, the book for everywhere, + r\ kftAlr 4-ti - 1, t -J i-uc uuua— mtj uuuiv; He tossed it' up and caught it as it fell. .Then he went on: 'The book for everybody. See! En cyclopaedia of eighty pages, recipes for every dish that was ever cooked, all the new dishes that never were cooked, formulae for the toothache, agreeable stories for old women, a treatise for young women, on the art of getting husbands, how to cure bun ions-. without amputation, how to plant cabbages when the moon is not full, how to breed rabbits, how to interpret dreams, how to tell fortunes, how to get a divorce, how to reckon up . the interest on a mortgage — the book for everybody.' After all this palaver no one bought a single copy. The Cheap Jack looked over the crowd wfth disgust that could not be disguised. 'Ladies and gentl...
THE WIFE WHO HELPED HER HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
THE WIFE WHO HELPED HER HUSBAND. Some of the greatest men in this country have ascribed their worldly success as well as their happiness to their wives. The celebrated sculptor, Flaxman, married Anne Wenman, a charming and lovable woman, who said, when her husband told her that Sir Joshua Reynolds : expressed his opinion that marriage had ruined his future career as an artist, 'I will never have it said that Anne Wenman ruined John Flax man for an artist . . . A great ar tist you shall be, and visit Rome.' 'But how?' asked Flaxman. 'Work and economise,' said his wife. For five years; Mrs. Flaxman prac tised the most unselfish economy, and at last her efforts were rewarded, and the seven years that Flaxman spent studying in Rome firmly established his position . in after life as a great sculptor, and he always acknowledg ed that his wife's devotion practically founded his future success..
THE EFFECT OF ROLLER SKATING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
THE EFFECT OF ROLLER SKATING. A ph'y&ician who has made a careful study of the effects of roller skating has shown that excessive indulgence in tn s sport frequently results .in flat feet, defective- development of the leg muscles, and impairment of the gait and carriage of the body. Roller skating is'especially injurious to grow ing children, whose muscles, bonies, and joints are still in. process of de velopment. The muscles used in walk ing, especially those of the feet, re main inactive in roller skating, while other muscles are overworked. Hence the body becomes more or less de formed, especially in the case of young girls, who fail to acquire their normal grace and beauty of form.
Just a Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Just a Suggestion. The conjuror on the pier was in his best form. He had produced rabbits from handkerchiefs, cannon-balls from hats, half-crowns from half-pennies, watches from ears — 'I beg your par don, sir, but I believe you are secret ing a sovereign m your mouth. Thank you!' — and green parrots from no where. He had also produced several packs cf cards and numerous Japanese fans from his sleeves. But, of course, the audience never for a moment suspect ed this. 'Now, ladies and gentlemen,' he concluded — this was his chief item — waving his wand towards a pretty, decorated cabinet, 'I want you to give your careful, attention to the last illu sion of the evening. I want some lady in the audience to enter this cabinet. I will then close the door, and, when opened again, the lady will have mirac ulously disappeared.' A gleam of hope flashed into the mind of one of the hearers — a dilapi dated-looking little man, who sat be side a very powerful, big woman, with a chin like a man-o'...
Father of the Man. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Father of the Man. 'Father,' asked Tommy the other day, 'why. is it that the boy is said to be. the father of the man?' Mr. Tompkins had never given this subject any thought, and was hardly' prepared to answer off-hand. 'Why — why,' he said, stumbling 'it's so because it is, I suppose.' 'Well, pa, since I'm your father, I'm going to give you a ticket to the cir cus and half-a-crown besides. I al ways said that if I was a father I wouldn't be so stingy as the rest of them. Go in, pa, and have a good time while you're young. I never had any chance myself.' Mr. Tompkins gazed In blank aston ishment at Tommy. Slowly the sig nificance of the hint dawned upon him. Producing a half-sovereign he said: 'Take it, Thomas. When you really do become a father, I hope it won't be your misfortune to have a son who is smarter than yourself.' 'You see I'm familiar with your music,' said an amateur pianist to the composer of one of the items he had played. 'It seems so,' was the reply. 'At any rate, y...
Just Suit Stamford. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Just Suit Stamford.' Thoroughly censorious people are com monly oblivious to their failing, and particularly' given to rebuking evil speaking. An eminent lawyer tells this story in illustration: — 'When I was young my best client was a wealthy old lady noted for say ing caustic things about her acquain tances. One morning, when I was staying at her house, she vilified one of her neighbors, named Stamford, without stint. ? 'By way of changing the subject, I proposed to read to her from a vol ume of lectures I had happened to bring with me. She assented. I start ed at random, and when too late dis covered that I was in the middle of a lecture on the government of the ton gue. 'I was afraid she would think I had selected it to admonish her, yet dared not stop for fear of seeming to make the offence more pointed. So on I read to the end, pretty sure that my reading would cost me a client worth two hundred a year to me. But when I ended, she said: — ' 'Thank you, Mr. ? . It is an excelle...
