A RUSSIAN WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

A RUSSIAN WEDDING. A Russian wedding is described by a traveller who was one of ttie invited guests. It was to take place at 8 p.m., but the bride, of course, was late. Instead ol' arriving at eight o'clock, it was nearly nine before she made her appearance. She was pre ceded by her nephew, a little boy five years old, holding an image of "Our Lord." The child gave this to the priest, and then the Eervice began. Neither organ nor any musical in strument is allowed in the Russian Church, so the choir, consisting of five men, chanted. The priest alter nately read and the choir chanting went on for about half an hour. The priest then addressed several words to the bride and bridegroom. Two gentlemen, "garcons d'honneur," or groomsmen, stepped forward and were each given a crown, which they were to hold over the bride and bride groom's head until the end of the service. The priest then put a wedding-ring on the third finger of the right hand of each, and the chanting went on as before. ...

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF HISTORY. la'the yes? 1828 there appeared in the^streets of Nuremburg a youth who could apparently not even stand se curely. Upon his person a card was found, stating that, owing to certain directions, he had been kept since his birth in absolute seclusion, never seeing anyone or being taught any thing. Gradually the boy was taught to read and write, though, till his dis covery, he could not speak a word ex cept to say his name, "ICasper Hau ser," which he had been taught to re peat like a parrot; nor did he know the name o£ a single object. By de grees he related that he had spent all his life in a dark "hole," where he was fed by a man every day, though he could not describe him, owing to the darkness in which he had always seen him. At last Kasper Hauser was taken in charge by an English nobleman— Lord Stanhope—and educated to take the place of a clerk; but one day, while out walking, the young man, 'who was now about twenty-one years old, accordin...

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

"BOBS" AMONG THE BULLETS. "Talk about your commanders," said Tommy Atkins, "Bobs is the hoy for me. I found out what he was in Afghanistan. My company was dig ging trenches, and while finishing one the Afghans began firing, and the bul lets whistled close to our heads. "Well, there was a kid in the company that couldn't have been over 18. Never ought to have let him 'list. He was always growling and kicking, and at the first fire, down he went flat on his face, anil laid there. Then along came 'Bobs,' cool and easy, and sees the kid. 'Hello, there!' j' says 'Bobs,' 'What's the' matter, you fellow, down there? Get up and fight with your company.' 'No, 1 can't!' whines the kid. 'Can't,' says 'Bobs,' jumping down into the trench and .hauling the boy up. 'What's the mat ter with you that you can't? Are you ' hurt?' 'No, sir,' says he, 'I'm afraid of getting hit.' 'Well, you're a fine soldier!' says the general. Then he looked at the boyish face of the lad, and his face softened. 'I supp...

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

WORDS OF WIT AND WISDOM. Be good, but also be good for some thing. It usually costs a man something to listen to flattery. Life is not all night anil conflict; morning breaks at laBt. Know your man before you let liis opinions weigh much. Singleness of purpose is not the same thing as strength of character. To be conscious that you are isr rorant is n great step to knowledge. Preaching is out and away easier than practising, but not lialf so ef fectual. Everything that tlicu reprovest. in another, thou must most carefully avoid in thyself.—Cicero. A committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Many of the things which worry us most are trifles when we come to examine them closely. To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals and to have a de ference for others governs.our man ners.—Sterne. Nine-tenths of the people who fail in life do so because they have never appreciated the value of thorough ness. Only for the cheerful doos the tree ot l...

PRISON MASTERPIECES. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

PRISON MASTERPIECES. Byron's famous poem, "The Prison er or Chillon," is supposed to be writ ten by Bonnivard, the Genevan pa triot, whilst he was • incarcerated in the Chateau of Chillon, on the shores or the lake. But the poem was really written at lightning speed whilst Byron was imprisoned by inclement weather for a night and a day iu the neighborhood. Nevertheless, some notable literary achievements have been really writ ten in gaol, undoubtedly the moat out standing being two of the world's greatest classics, "The Adventures of Don Quixote" and "The Pilgrim's Pro gress." If only those two books had belonged to the literature of captivity' they would have been sufficient to make that literature distinguished and immortal. Thomas Cooper, the Chartist, whose life reads like a romance, and whose name is held in reverence by modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying in prison on ac count of his political agitation. This poem bears the remarkable title of "The Pu...

A Schoolboy Essay. "A figgerative saying is—to keep the wolf from the door. It does not mean to keep a real live ivolf from the door. A good instance is when the landlord comes for the rent. He knocks at the door, and you keep aw ful quiet In the hope that he will think there is nobody in, and go away."

III. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

III. The train was punctual at the ter minus, and it was just a quarter to twelve when the taxi-cab set them down at the Princes Hotel. Hugh was very well known to the peopls; there, and he engaged a suite of rooms immediately and sent Leila up to them. .His excited manner alarm ed her not a little, and when he toll her that he must see some of his friends but would be back before mid night, she knew that the true drama of her journey was about to be made known to her. Desdy was very tired by this time, and she put him to bed at once. The suite of rooms which Hugh had en gaged was the best in the hotel, and its magnificence set the boy wonder ing. He prattled incessantly of what the engine had said to him, and what the ships had been doing—asked about the great cluster of electric lights in the sitting-room, ann was delighted at the little lamp by his bedside. When Leila had given llim a drink of warm milk and some biscuits he fell asleep directly, and she sat by him, holding his ha...

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 16 April 1914

WHISTLES AT HIS WORK. "My boy," said Uncle Hiram, "don't, for pity's sake, look glum, An' don't set- tight your lips as if they speechless were, an' dumb, When some hard task's before you, ior, though laboring like a Turk, The happiest fellow's he who' sings or whistles at his work. A lesson from the buzz-saw learn, that rings with honest glee, While into lumber it converts the trunk c£ stoutest tree, That hums a low-toned melody when easiest's its lot, An' always sings the loudest when it strikes the hardest knot. "To make of every task a joy you'll find's an art worth while; The hardest problems of the world i are solved by those who smile. Abe Lincoln, when affairs of state perplexed him, deigned to chaff, Well knowing fogs would lift before the sunshine of a laugh. He joked when those about him stood in woe and gloom profound, Yet 'twas his laughter-wrinkled brow that fame undying crowned. He smiled, or likely chuckled, through each problem's softest spot, But shook with hearty ...

Leila and Her Lover. By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. III. It was almost dusk when they re turned to the Oastle, so altruistic had been their motives of delay. Lights shone from all the \pper windows of that venerable pile. Footmen in the halls below walked with the measured step of those who have found an oc cupation again after many days. Leila had begged that she might retire to her own cell during these hours of prescribed carnival, but he would not hear of it. "You owe mo that much," he said. "You must sa*"e me from the tigers." She made no answer, and they en tered the great hall together. There were guests already arrived—and a bruit of events which was ominous. She had not seen Desdy since lunch, and was pleased enough to hear his voice as she went up the great stair case from the garden. ■He had been playing at tramways with the Archdeacon, and that vener able functionary rose from the floor with knees which bore witn...

II. The journey was dark and labori ous, as though material tilings were themselves conscious of fatigue. .They rolled from station to station to the accompaniment of hissing steam and tired voices. There was no moon, hut the northern lights shimmered upon the sleeping fields and discovered an j horizon for a placid sea. Desdy was much comforted that Hugh • should come with them, and he got into the carriage manfully and eat down with an air of authority good to see. The excitement had waked him thor oughly, and he asked them many an embarrassing question. Had "the man" come iback? Was Lully still frightened of him? Hugh tried to tell him, but did not make much o£ a job of it. "You are going to Edinburgh, Desdy —La-morrow I will show you the shops and we will 'buy something good—you must not think of it now, old chaip; you must try to sleep."

Behind her lay the gloomy pile' of' Aberfeldy Castle; looking just the same fis it had done at the hour of dawn just five days ago. Much had happened in those intervening hours. She had heard and answered the story of a man's love; had been offered .a home and had refused it; had been in vited to become the mistress of all that splendid domain and had answered that she dare not. Now she was just Leila Shane again, going out friend-. legs Into the world, and knowing not wafft harbor her.
