A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" telln the following amusing story of a Brit* ish midshipman's adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big: cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a rickshaw. There was a keen freeze .blowing, but it ~ vas prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if his face were de» void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing proportions, which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now,,these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon .his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and ordered the co...

Settling a Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Settling a Dispute. "I mufrt insist, sir," exclaimed the pompous person, "that the device is a jfire-plug." "And 1 :un equally confident that it vis a water-plug," retorted the mild in dividual. "Now, my dear sir," pufCed the pompous person, "this device was put here primarily as a plug on which to attach a hose in case of fire in the vicinity. Therefore it is absolutely impossible that it can be anything but a fire-plug." . "You are entirely wrong," declared the other. "This plug was placed here to supply water. Consequently, .it ib a water-plug. If it supplied fire -why, then, ot' course, it would be a fire-plug." The pompous person stopped a pass ing pedestrian. "Sir," he began, "I desire to appeal to your intelligence. This gentleman lias become involved in an argument .with me. He insists that this device is a water-plug, while I, with equal confidence, claim that it is a fire plug. Will you kindly settle the ques tion for us?" "Certainly," replied the pedestrian.

"HE IS A BRICK." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

"HE IS A BRICK." I do not know how this slang phrase originated. It is used mainly by hoys and young men. When they find a comrade who is generous and jolly, they say: "He is a brick." But I thought of it the other day when visiting tlie superintendent of a large smelting works. I saw them making up a load Tor the Mint. The gold that had been refined wub in lumps the size and shape of a brick. The superintendent told me that each of thoso bricks was worth about £300, and added that in these days of hydraulic mining it had cost about as much as it was worth. I could not help thinking about tho possible feature of those bricks. Somo of them will be well invested, and will be represented ten or twen ty years hence by beautiful home?) fruitful orchards, or benevolent in stitutions. Some of them will bo represented by wrecked lives and ruin ed souls. As I passed down the street I saw a group of young men standing at the corner, and heard one of them say: "John, you are a brick." The youn...

HER NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

HER NAME. Her parents called her Marguerite, And friends and kinsfolk said, "How sweet!" But here I will relate to you What happened as she upward grew. Her oldest, sister called her Meg, Her Leasing brother called her Peg, Her girlish chums to Daisy took, Plain Maggie satisfied the cook. And Madge she was to her papa, And Margie to her fond mamma, And Peggie in her grandma's voice, And Magpie as her grandpa's choice. With Margery her teacher's word, While Rita she herself preferred. Now, in this list with names replete, Pray what became o!' Marguerite? A deeply religious and benevolent old lady living in South London has had a rather startling experience. The other day her compassion was aroused 'by a poorly-clad and wretched-looking man whom she saw passing her house. Taking a half-sovereign from her purse she wrapped the coin in a piece of paper, cn which she wrote the ex hortation "Never say die." When the maid delivered the note to the man he thanked her, looked up at the house...

BUILD A COMPLETE, WELLROUNDED CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

BUILD A COMPLETE. WELL ROUNDED CHARACTER. Have you ever observed, says the novelist Bjornsen, that happy people work better than those who are sad? Why? The same occupation con stantly, whether It be work, prayer or amusement, would jnako us stupid and gloomy. You can dig in the dirt until you become a brute, pray until' the habit makes you a monk, ant!' play until you become a mere puppet; but combine the three, It will streng then the heart and soul. Thus your work will be made more fruitful an&; your religion more cheerful. "liivo we your beliefs; I have doubts enough of. my own," said Goethe. Most people are in much the same case where moroseness and' gloom are concernod; they have quite' enough of their own without being' asked to help bear yours or mine. It isn't what he knows, but what he thinks he knows, that a man brags about;, great talk generally ; means little knowledge.

A WELCOME VALENTINE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

A WELCOME VALENTINE. On the way (.0 the famous "Waters meet," near Lynmouth, North Devon, there is a quaint little hamlet called Middleham. The river Lyn, on the banks of wl eii the hamlet is situated, threads its tortuous Wa.y b tween very high hills that appear completely to shut in the place from the outside world. Ho steep and high are these hills that for nearly four months each year the sun does not rise high enough to Ibe s"en, over their tops, by the Inhabi tants of the hamlet. If the day is clear, the sun makes its first appearance over the hill-top on the fourteenth of February, and its appear..nee is hailed with delight by the colagors, who call it their "valentine." If the day should 1)© foggy or cloudy, bo that it cannot be seen, great disappointment is felt, especially among the children. The sun only remains in sight for a short time for the first few days, but the length of time afterwards gradually increases until it can he seen for several hours. It then appears fo...

Father's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

Father's Dilemma. A parent's life is one long responai bility. It's a wonder that so many the genu's discharge their duties so ac ceptably. A writer has discovered! another parental problem; or perhaps he merely calls attention to one which many fathers have discovered for themselves. "How's the family?" one inquired; of a happily married man. "Well, my children are at a diffi cult age now." "Difficult? Why, they've all passed': the measles and teething stage, have they not?" "Long ago. But you don't know father's troubles. My children are at the age where if I use slang my wife says I'm setting a fbad example, and^ if I speak correctly, the kids think. I'm a back number. Which would, you do?"

HIGH ESTATE OF THE CHRYSANTHEMUM IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

HIGH E8TATE OF THE ; CHRY8ANTHEMUM IN JAPAN. The chrysanthemum has been, cultl* ?ated in China for more than 2000 years, and there is evidence of its be ing, cheriohed in Egypt 1000 years be fore its mention in China. Whether it came from Egypt to China or vice versa, it is impossible now to deter mine, but the Chinese are prone to re gard it as a product of the Fair East. Confucius, the celebrated sage of China, makes mention of the chry santhemum 600 B.C., under the name of liki. From China it came to Japan, writes Dr. J. Ingram Bryan, where it reached its highest form of develop ment, and is still reverenced as the Imperial emblem; and one of the highest orders in the imperial *ift is. the order of the chry santhemum. On the imperial sword the flower is engraved, and it figures prominently on warships, and every thing belonging to the Crown. The feast of the chrysanthemum is cele brated in Japan in November each year, when the -blossoms are at their beat; and the Emperor gives a ...

Di gestion goes on very slowly, if at all, during the hours of sleep, and the \ habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of th& gouty type.

The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 17 June 1914

The Ear. The human ear is a delicate piece . of mechanism. That which we ordin arily designate as the "ear," is, after all, only the mere outer porch of ft series of winding passages which lead from the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are filled with liquid, besides having mem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across the corridor at different points. When a sound-wave strikes these they are turned into vibrations and made to tremble like the head of a drum does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of minute bones extends, which serves I to tighten or relax the membranes and communicate vibrations to them. In the innermost place of all a row of w" ite threads, called nerves,' stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point from which the tremblings reach, -passing thence inward to the brain.
