Universal Sports Ground. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Universal Sports Ground. (To the Editor.) Sir,—If "Demos" wishes to be classed as a sport, he should come from behind his notn de plume and let the public know how far he is personally interested in the L70 per acre site for- the show and sports ground. For a sports ground it is out of the way and up back streets. If "Demos" is agent for aeroplanes he might be able to j;uu a service on wet days, as that would be the only way to avoid the mud, I have been in formed on good authority that a team of horses and a waggon that sank there last winter has uot beeu recovered jet. What is there in the open letter to make him so cross, if he Is so cer tain these gentlemen are on the un popular side. Why bother to aunoy himself and us, by being so personal, and rude. If you will let us know your name, we will be able to judge the value or otherwise of your so lucid arguments. Being a lover of a fair fight, led me to writp this.— Arthur J. Fattinsox. i
Grazing Sheep on Lucerne. BAMAWN AND NANNEELLA EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Grazing Sheep on Lucerne. baaiawm and nanneella experiences. The fact that during the late dry spell that Rochester and the north era districts were sending large quantities of fat lucerne-fed sheep to the down-country markets at tracted much attention in Mel bourne, for previously in times of drought we had either to import, feed, or send stock away for pas ture. The leading Melbourne news papers sent up special reporters, and the following appears in the "Australasian:" A recent trip through part of the irrigated closer settlements at Ba inawm and Nanneella, which are situated in the Rochester district, enabled some interesting impres sions to be gathered of the methods of sheep husbandry in vogue there. Grazing the lucerne stands with sheep is a comparatively recent in novation, but it bids fair to become general, and to provide one of the principal sources ,'of income to irri gationists. The first of the smaller landholders (in which category those with blocks of from 30 to 50 a...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") The more we see o£ the new fash ions the more it becomeB apparent that the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose be adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with any good effect. There must be a svelte pliability that any much- bon ed and braced corset will not allow, and there must be a certain sugges tion of limpness. How different is the new figure-line from that of last year. So much so that many thoughtful wo men long have hesitated before adopt ing the new style. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last sea son? Parisiennes were almost taken 1 aback themselves by the unheard of eccentricities paraded for tlieir edi fication at fashionable racecourses. The leading houses, seeing they had overstepped the mark, capitulated, and immediately made tracks in an other direction. Hence modes which threatened to be more than eccentric have become subdued and are simple and elegant. The dr...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
III. It was but little more than a year from the time we have alluded to that Julia—not the bright, animated Julia we before have known, but the sallow, languid Mrs. Merton—slowly entered her cousin's apartment. " "Reading, as usual!" was her salu tation. "What have you there, Grace? —a stupid-looking book enough. 'Aids to Reflection.' Then you are in the very mood for a visit from me, for. I want your aid to some very serious reflections I have just been indulging in upon the wxirld in general and'your own beautiful self in particular." So saying, Mrs. Merton laid aside her rich walking-cloak, and disposed ■ ; herself very comfortably for a morn ing's chat. I "Do you know, Grace," she contin ued, "that I have serious thoughts of writing a novel called .'Grace: A Mys tery"? I think it rfilght take." "What do you mean, Julia?" "I mean that you, innocent as you look, have for the last year been as great an enigma to me as—as—I am, tc> myself"—and Mrs. Merton's coun tenance, which f...

II. True to his intention, Mr. Merton the next day made his formal pro posal, first to Mr. Claverlng, who re ceived it with pleasure, secondly to his daughter, who recoiled from it w'tli mingled surprise and disgust. Mr. Merton could scarcely credit his senses—he refused! he, the owner of hundreds of thousands!—it was in credible. Filled with indignation, smarting with all the agonies of a wounded self-esteem, he hastened to his con ndante, Julia, who smoothed his ruf fled plumes with infinite adroitness. Her flatteries fell like balm upon his lacerated vanity; her gentle glance beaming through her half-closed eyes, the gentle pressure of her dimpled hand—all told with wonderful effect, until at last, to Mr. Merton's infinite surprise, one bright morning he is sued forth from" Mr. Annesley's quiet dwelling the plighted husband of his daughter! How it had come about, Mr. Mer ton vainly ransacked his memory to tell—he certainly had never dreamed of sucli a thing. But Julia had, and fr...
WASTED YEARS OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
WASTE D YEARS OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. "Confusion worse confounded" had reigned all day in the handsome estab lishment of Mr. Clavering. Upholster ers had been busy removing furniture and arranging ornaments; gardeners were hearing in exotic plants and towering pyramids of flowers; confec tioners, French cooks, bakeis, vint ners had, in their turn, haunted the precincts; and now, at eight in the evening, there was a general lull, broken only by the exclamations of the troop of worthies who were tumbl ing over each other in their zeal to give the last finish to the arrange ments for a splendid entertainment. With an aching head and limbs "both weary and worn," the mistress of the house was' busied with hei hasty toilet, while her daughter, the beautiful Grace Clavering, for whose especial advantage all this trouble ana expense had been incurred, having completed hers, had thrown herself, perfectly exhausted, into an armchair before her boudoir fire. "Hail, queen of this fairy realm!" ex...
ONLY JOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
ONLY JOKING. The following incident occurred re cently on the down mail train between Lahore and Amballa. There were five European passengers in a first-class reserved carriage. The guard of the train was-an Eurasian of pronouncedly dark complexion, but a smart and in telligent man at his work for all that. One of the first class passengers, who was a bounder, thought he would take a rise out of the guard, so, calling him to the carriage, said: "I say, guard, I've got a hat here, a real silk bow ler, complete in case which I recently purchased from an outfitter's of Bom bay. It cost me 30 rupees, and the only fault about it is that it is a trifle too small for me. Judging by the size of your head, it will probably fit you. Would you mind accepting it?" The guard, gratified at the prospect of such a present, readily expressed acceptance. The passenger, holding the hat over the panel of the carriage, said, "Here you are, guard; here's the hat, case and all, but just as the guard put o...
A GOOD VIOLIN STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
A GOOD VIOLIN STOP^Y. A young man, poorly clothed, pre sented himself before a dealer in: curiosities near the Palais Royal. "Sir," said he, showing a violin thai he carried, "I am a musical artist;' this is the season of balls and parties, 1 have just had a long illness which has exhausted my purse, my only blacrf coat is in pawn; I shall be much oblig ed if you will lend me ten francs to redeem it. 1 will leave as security one of the violins you see, for I have two; it is an excellent instrument, i shall return for it as soon as, thanks to my coat, I shall have earned enough money for the purpose." The young man had such an honest bearing that the dealer lent him ten francs, and kept the violin, which he hung up in the shop. The next day a gentleman, well dressed, wearing at his button hole the riband of the Legion of Honor, was choosing from the dealer's stock of goods some shell.work. Seeing the violin, he took it up, examining it nar rowly. "What is the price of that instru men...

Quite Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Quite Enough. | Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American I writer of short stories, returning from : a trip in the Western States, found ! that a close friend of his had fallen ! into the hands of the law. He hurried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer," was the reply. "I know just what would hap pen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occupation. And you would say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by and by, despairing of finding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. And he would exchange an intelligent, libellous smile wth the twelve. Aud then he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough. Mr. Cobb. You may stand down.""
HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
HOW TO AVOID NEURALGIA. Two of the commonest causes of neuralgia are neglected decaying teetti and eye-strain, it may be that no one partcular tooth is badly decayed, there may be no actual toothache that the sufferer can point to as the rea son for those shooting pains about the cheek or jaw, which he endures almost nightly. Nevertheless, in about 50 per cent, of the cases the teeth are at the root of the trouble. Clearly the dentist in such cases is the right doctor, and as a rule a me dical man will send his patient to the dentist. Many people whose neural gia is due to eye-strain are not con scious of anything the matter with their sight, it may be only when they seek medical advice that the sugges tion of eye trouble is made to them; they go to the oculist, glasses are pre scribed, and the neuralgia disappears. we may be in a certain physical condition which renders us particular ly ready for neuralgia, the scale being turned by comparatively such small things as a draught or a...
Checkmated. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Checkmated. As most people know, when travel ling by train in America, the passen ger at the depot of departure hands over his luggage to the officials, and on payment of a fee receives a metal check, which he returns in exchange for his trunks on arrival at his des tination. The system has its advan tages, but also its drawbacks prob ably, the fatal one of loss of the checks, for the baggage master will only hand over the luggage 011 receipt of the vouchers. A leading light of English Comic Opera, Miss C.P., was going from New York to Philadelphia to join a com pany. Like a prudent young lady, she packed away her dollar bills in her swanbill corsets, but her baggage checks she had left in her pocket. Pre sently she fell asleep and did not ful ly awake till, in a "semi-dozy" state, she fancied she felt a slight pull at her dress. Opening her eyes she found that a very gentlemanly looking man was sitting next to her. She put her hand in her pocket. The checks were gone. At the moment...
It Reminds 'Em. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
It Reminds 'Em. A great man once said to a friend: "I think I'll write my recollections." "Very good," said the friend, "but let me caution you not to recollect anything, about celebrities that are living." ' "Why, what's the danger, anyway?" "The danger," replied the other, "is that is soon as you begin to recollect things about living celebrities they will begin to recollect things about you."
