Our Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

Our Politeness. An English gentleman at a dinner party sat next to a Frenchwoman. This lady praised her own coun.-ry rery highly. Particularly she praised French politeness. "The French," she said, "are the politest people in the -world." The gentleman smiled. The other, a little piqued at his smile, said: "You English all admit, don't you, the superiority of French politeness?" The Englishman smiled as he an swered: "We do, madam. That is our po liteness.''

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South Austra lian Government offered a prize for the invention of a stone-gathering machine to be used on sjme of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. The first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, but the two or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The Hardwareman") that two Australians have invented an im proveii rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. The rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony tt> use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, aft...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

KITCHEN VVRINKLES. When, boiling potatoes,, add just a little, sugar, as well as salt. /They are far . more floury than if only salt is added.-; The. white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam matipn, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fish-liettle is not available for boiling the fish, place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, tliejnussels should not be eat en; as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place, a few un used matches, heads downwards, in the pots. The sulphur will kill the worms and the plants will be quite healthy again. To prevent the juice of pies from running over spread a thin rim of b...

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

TO MAKE COAL LAST LONGER. .Coal is not used as carefully as it might be. When breaking up a large lump of coal it is generally done l>y striking it vigorously in a haphazard fashion with the back of the axe, which wastes the coal by pounding it to a dust. Now a coal chisel costs but a few pence and this applied to the lump of coal along the graia^or sea,m a- c nce splits it cleanly and without any waste of dust. Actor: What, back so soon? Didn't the play take? Actress: Yes, the play took; the manager took the receipts, the bai lifiii the scenery, the landlords the trunks, and the author took to drink!

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeitung," of Wintertl}ur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful. CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR.

QUEER. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

QUEER. The origin of Ine word "queer" is daft' to Quiii. He bet one hundred pounfs with a nobleman one erening that by the next morning at break fast time there would be a word in most people's mouths that was never h»ard before. That night, when the theatre closed, ho got all the "supera" and others whom he had hired, furnished each with a large lump of chalk, and in structed one and all to go through the prinoipal streetB of London and chalk on the pavement the word "Queer." The next morning people were con founded by the writing on the flags. Som« believed it was significant of danger—that a secret enemy was sear, and this waB his watchword; so th« word went around in a most ama aiag way. It might be said to be not "i» moat people's mouths," but in '"•verybody's mouth." Quin, of course, woh the wager.

AN ARTFUL MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

AN ARTFUL MAID. "If you fondly loyed me, darling," In her ear he whispered low; "Why unto my first'proposal, Did you sadden me with 'No?'" "Well," replied the happy maiden, In between a bill and coo, "I'm afraid i did it merely, Just to see what you would do." "But," her lover fond protested, In a tone approaching pain, "Wha,t if I had rushed off wildly, Never coming back again?" "That," she cried, "could not have happened, Well I knew what'was: in store, As I took a wee precaution— Darling, I—I locked the door!" ■ The thing that doesn't cost- any thing has a cute way of figuring in the expenses account. A woman is so used to pinning things that she can't understand why a man should make, so much fuss about a missing button.

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 16 May 1914

little brain Waves! Handsome men are generally only clothes-props. , V; Cryin' over spilt milk .ain't no good —it on'y makes it skimmier. A man may find a woman's eyes beautiful and never know the exact color of them. The' real man-hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby - will be her husband. Poetry is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and it has a shocking effect on the hair. The happiest woman is the one who does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do the Ten Commandments—something to be studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses his head; then he'll do anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonic friendship usually ends in the woman losing her heart and the man his temper ... or the man his appetite and the woman., her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom ing b...
