ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. The enthusiasm of genius' leads to strange and curious happenings at times, and the story which is told by .Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous arti3:, about his friend Rossetti in his "R" miniscences" illustrates in an amusing man.ier the later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for collect ing china. "He dined one evening with friends who followed his lead in the matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for H13 better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precious example. When the' cover was re moved, Rossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in botT hands, turned it upside down to see Lhe marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclaime-.l, 'The very dlali I was going to get to morrow!'

VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Euialia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and she pre sents to us in "The Strand Magazine." where her memoirs are appearing, a * picture of scandals, intrigues, and jeal ousies which is astonishing. Some ot her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears "must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modern Courts, the diplomat is the most ab surd. After remarking that they are "a useless survival of the days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns, and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points out that nowadays the Court diplomat has no power, except to deliver the mes sage of his home Government. "He is not entrusted with secrets," she says, "any pore than an errani boy. And he is usually If_ a family of poslL'on has a-ean who ia — not -juite bright', th...

Far-Fetched. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
Far-Fetched. Two men were drinking together when tho conversation "turned on how to feed and train canaries, which hap pened to be their profession. They were telling each other the merits of their birds, which were to go in a show, and both were sure of winning^ the prize. At last one of them said in a sorrowful tone: "Ah, Jim, if I had only got the one I had last week I should not have much trouble in winning, but I had taught him to sing 'Home, Sweet Home' so much to perfection that tho tears rolled down his breaBt till he got exhausted, fell off his perch, and was drowned in his own tears." "Oh," said Jim, "that's nothing. One night my bird was Binging 'The Village Blacksmith' so true that the sparks flew out of his eyes, set fire to the cage and before we had time to put the flames out the poor little wretch was roasted to death." A crust and a kind word are better than a feast an indigestion. Neither speak well nor 111 of your self. If well, men will not believe you; if ill, t...

Not So Slow After All. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
I I Not So Slow After All. At one time a German university developed the mania for conferring honorary degrees, and a Scottish doc tor named Mclntire, who had obtained his degree by diligent labor, became disgusted. He sent a polite note i&lt;j the faculty asking them to bestow a degree upon his servant. The docto? was a great man, and the jocose na ture of the request was not suspect ed, so the parchment was accordingly sent him. After acknowledging its receipt, 1 the physician added that, since they were so kind as to give his servant a degree, it would add to his obligation if they would confer one upon his fav orite horse. But the faculty, the joke once fairly scented, rose to the occa sion. "We are obliged," they wrote, "re spectfully to decline granting so dis tinguished a favor. We have searched' the college records for a precedent, but the only one to be found lies in the fact that some' years ago a de gree was conferred upon an ass named Mclntire." Keep at it. It is...

PITY THE HUMORIST. It's not much fun to scribble rhyme? ana ladle humor out, When one is wholly at a loss fo» things to write about; And when a man for years has had this 6ort of thing to do, It's very, very hard to find a them that's really new. So sometimes as my weary brain 1 rummage o'er and thresh In vain attempt to find a thought that'i just a trifle fresh, I'm tempted sore to cease to quip, to give up joke and quirk, And grab a shovel or a pick and look for easy work.
CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. Tho news, first made public, the oilier day, tliat a certain well-known London journalist has insured his col lection of newspaper cuttings for no less than £3,000, doubt'oss came as a surprise to many people. And, indeed, it is,somewhat difficult for an outsider to utrflerstand how a mere jumble of snippets from old journals can bo worm any such sum. Yet their ac tual a alue to their owner is probably far in excess of what he has insured them for, for they arts his stock in trade, the raw material, so to speak, o\'t of which he manufactures the wares by the sale of which he makes his livelihood. i nV,=' f 5 s> nu,"'»ers some mil !)rwir•[11?PPa 1 a'c cminss relating to !i i" overy c°ncelvable subject and indexed "a °Tf-"y P'Seon-holeii n- 'uih „„A"y 1'-^ d writer- h-'v K.y •.ucii ii cutting library at hid rHc posa couin make a fioo^living Vith-' Ui.l s'tVuly °nii U,° f°Ur WaIIs of 1 Oi it must not bo supposed ti...
Scandalous Corpulence. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
Scandalous Corpulence. The late American commander, General Shatter, although a man of corpulence, had a deep dislike for fal soldiers. "They're no use!" he -would bluster in his tremendous basso. "They pant, they wheeze, they snort, they choke, they grunt, they groan, they waddle, they slouch through the world! Not a particle of good on earth, fat soldiers Would not have one of 'em if I could help it!" ''Er—but—er—you would not exact ly call yourself slight, would .vou. colonel?" a major once asked Shat ter after one of these outbursts. "Slight? No!" Shafter thundered in reply. "I've been a fat old nui sance ever since the day I tipped the beam over two hundred pounds, and then I ought to have been cour;-nia> tiallcd and cashiered for outrageous and malicious adiposity, sir—for scan dalouB corpulence to the prejudice of military discipline!"

Then he looked up to see the dentist smil ing benevolently at him. "There!" said the young man. "That's out! Did it hurt?" "Hurt!" roared the patient. "Hurt?" He rose reproachfully, and made an experimental tour around his gtuns with his tongue. A terrible discovery was the result. "Young man!" he shrieked, '"you've pulled out the -wrong one." "I know," said the dentist, bracin?. himself again, "but now I can get at the other one handier!"

Didn't Matter to Them. A Northerner riding through the ; West Virginian mountains came up j with a mountaineer leisurely driving a herd of pigs. I j "Where are you driving the pigs to?" asked the rider. "Out to pasture 'em a bit." . "What for?" "To fatten *im." "Isn't it pretty slow work to fatten 'em on grass?
