Rochester Show. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

Rochester Show. (To the Editor). Sir:—I noticed by the columns of the !oca> press that I am called upon to make apology for not taking tlie decision of the judges lying down. For the last 20 years I have been exhibiting stallions at the Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo, Smeaton, Clunes, Maryborough, Werribee, Ecliuca and Moama shows, so I aui 110 novice at the game. That I was disgusted with the decision of the judges is no secret. I think a large number of the onlookers were also disgusted, if not amazed. I do not care a brass farthing for Cr Rankin's motion or heroics. I,et the show committee lake pride in the quality rather than the quantity of their judges. The old adage tells us that too many cooks spoil the hroth and it was never better shown than by - the judging in the equine'classes of the last Kochester show. _ I am afraid that more people will disqualify the show committee and all their works than they can legally disqualify for expressiug dissatisfaction at their judges' ...

Buckland, who was accompanied by Crs Coughlin, Simmie and Walters, addressed the assembled auctioneers and buyers briefly.

One act. was in the city, and there were real fire-en gines, cable-cars, ferry-boats, police men, and such like. Good play, and look in money by the barrelful, but hard work for me.

SEIZING AN OPPORTUNITY. A Student's Predicament, Out of the poverty o£ bis childhoou, an energetic young lellow had fought his way through the University. After graduation he felt he must see Europe, and with the little accumulation he had he "crossed the Pond," trusting to good luck to get him home again. But his trip of sightseeing over, he found himself in Liverpool without mono and with no means of getting any. He thought he would just go down to the steamer, go on board, and sec how it would seem if only he were going home. As he wandered over the big line; his attention was attracted by a cry ing baby. The mother was travelling alone, and while she was attempting to see to all the thousand and one details incident to the beginning of an ocean trip, the baby had resented the absence of attention and was cry ing. The mother was at her wits' end. The stranded youth's kind heart prompted him to say, "Let me tak-j the baby, madam. Perhaps I can kee;i him quiet until your preparatio...

CASH REWARDS FOR UGLY WOMEN. Some Quaint Charities. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

CASH REWARDS FOR UGLY WOMEN. Some Quaint Charities. A well-known bachelor who died tb.e other day at Frankfort, Germany, left an endowment for an annual prize of £25 to the man who leads the ugliest woman to the altar. It the bride is lame as well as unprepossessing, the groom will receive an additional sura of £5. This reminds us that the town of Haschmann. In Germany, has a sys tem of rewarding lovers who marry girls who have little or no personal attractions. A well-known financier left a sum of money to the town au thorities to provide dowries for the plainest woman under thirty married in Haschmann every year, a cripple, and four women under forty who had been jilted several times. Some years ago a merchant of Ken tucky, U.S.A., instructed his execu tors to invest a certain sum of money and divide the interest every year—on their wedding days—among five Am erican girls who were possessed of heads of "reddish-gold" hair. The founder of this marriage portion died a bachelor, and ...

A STROKE FOR A THRONE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

A STROKE FOR A THRONE. Eizabeth Petrowna, daughter of Peter the Great, was the natural suc cessor to her brother, Peter II., on the Russian throne. By the latter's will, however, the empire passed to a cous in, Anne of Courland, who handed it on at her death to a nephew, Ivan, two years of age. Ivan was proclaimed Czar, and his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Brunswick, appointed themselves Re. gents during his minority; but their administration was extremely unpopu lar in Russia and distasteful to the other European Powers. The Princess Elizabeth continued to reside at Court, apparently uninter ested in affairs of State until the dan gers of her position were made clear to her. As the dynastic heir to the throne and the idol of the people, she was the object of the Regents' jeal ousy and suspicion. Secret informa tion compelled her to choose between a desperate stroke for the crown that rightfully belonged to her, or the cer tainty of death on the scaffold. Stirred to action by th...

In the beginning, when his tumlet is full of milk, and his soul of con tent, he lies upon his back and kicks his heels in the air; he says "Go-ga" and "Goo-goo," and that is Fun.
