GIVE THE RUNTS A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
GIVE THE RUNTS A CHANCE. "Pigs is ]>ign," you know. Some are largo enough to crowd the smaller ones away from the trough. The ones that are in the trough are the ones that put the profits in your pockets; but the ones that try to get in and can't are the ones that pick those same profits out.of your poc kets. If the little is evenly divided, you play a winning hand. Just parti tion off a corner and put a trough in it and make the entrance just large enough to admit the pickpockets. Put the best of the feed in there and you'll find, that you'll be able to come out ahead in the game of "pigs is pigs."

SPOKEN BY ADAM AND EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
I SPOKEN BY ADAM -AND EVE. I Few subjects have given rise to more speculation th?n the language spoken by our first parents in the garden of Eden. 'I'lie .Tews claim that the Hebrew tongue was the earliest language, and spoken by Adam and Eve. The Arabs, however, dispute the point. Of all the languages, except the Hebrew, the Sy riac'has had the greatest number of advocates, especially among Eastern authors. .Many maintain that the language spoken by Adam is lost. Goropius publishT a work in 1S50 to prove that Dutch was the language spoken in Paradise. Andre Kemp maintained that God spoke to Adam in Swedish, Adam an swered in Danish, and Eve spoke in French, while the Persians also be lieve three languages were spoken in Paradise- Arabic, the most persua sive. by the serpent: Persian, the most poetic, by Adam and Eve; and Turkish, the most threatening, by the Angol Gabriel

A CLOUD WITH A BRIGHT LINING. ?Angry Dismay. Thomas Melbrooke for many years had been a dutiful husband and par ent; now he was fifty-three years of age. Two years before the opening of this story Mrs. Melbrooke had laid aside her wifely and parental duties, and was laid to rest with her ances tors. She had always been a busy, woman, keeping her husband and chil dren so well in hand that surely she must have welcomed' rest. And now Mr. Holbrooke, for the first time in his first time in his his tory, stood in danger of allowing his own comfort to interfere with his children's wishes. They, on their part, were endeavoring to prevent such a catastrophe no less for his sake than for their own. In justice to Mr. .Melbrooke it must be said that ho had struggled mhn fully against temptation ere his chil dren even dreamed that it had arisen in his path. Iiis mental conflict was conscientious. Lengthy arguments, pro and con, distracted his mind. There was little variety in these ar guments, ...

II. Derrick Hardane, tanned and hard ened under sunlit skies, toiled up the long staircase of a block of L.C.C. dwellings near the Tate Gallery. For weeks he had been making unsuccess ful inquiries, and lie feared that his present quest would prove equally fruitless. "This must be the flat," he reflected, as he knocked at the door of a flat. After a long interval the door was opened, nnd a decrepit old man appear ed. Derrick stared at him in astonish ment. The change in him in the seven years since the Inst meeting was as tounding. "You are Mr. Cornish?" he asked. "Yes. What is it?" replied the old man, querulously. "Don't you know me?" asked Der rick. "I'm afraid I don't," mumbled Cor nish. "What do you want?" "I want to talk to you," replied Der rick, u. wave of pity going through him as he wondered what stroke of mis fortune had brought his former em ployer to this state of breakdown and poverty. "Can I come in, please?" The old man led the way to a small living-room. He sat down...

I won dered if you were still here. Coming along yet?" With a'furtive and shifty look in Ills eyes, Gilbert Dexter rose to his feet, and stood backing against the desk, in an attitude which suggested a wild animai at bay. His hand fumb led about among the papers as he fev erishly tried to cover up something which lay there. "N-no," ho stammered. "I'm busy I'm busy.' Hardane strode towards him with a look of astonishment and concern on his frank countenance. "Why, what's up, old chap?" he asked, sobering suddenly. "You look ns if you'd seen a ghost."

"\ou don't look it, at any rate," re plied Hardane.' I tell you I'm all right," retorted Dexter, stubbornly. For some mome...
EARLY YUSSATAN RACES CAPABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
EARLY YU6SATAN RACES CAPABLE. Various authorities have ascribed to Hie ruins in Yucatan an age of from lllOO to 11.000 years. These fig ures arc based 011 data derived from calendar, siones preserved in matiy lilaces both in Yucatan and in neigh boring regions such as Mexico -and Guatemala. The stones can be deci phered with considerable accuracy, and exact, dales can be assigned to the construction of many buildings. The only trouble is that the dates belong i.o ihe various local eras of the dif ferent countries, and no one knows ( when a single one of the eras began. | This ignorance affords an ample field for speculation. There are, however, pirong reasons for believing (writes Kllsworth Huntington in "Harper's Magazine") that the ruins date back a long time before the coming of the Spaniards. Two of ttio" strongest of these reasons are that when the Span iards came to Yucatan, early in the sixteenth century, the Mayas, in the (irst place, were a slow, mild, unpro I gressive peop...

DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anvone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture oil "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. Me save no definite advice as to wlial should be done with ner vous children, but he asked that they should be treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to some I'onn of organic disease. He de scribed lhe night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. If the child suffers from slight indigestion, he he said, it is seldom terrified by pain, but by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room will make it dream of being sirangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get (errors of icebergs or ava unciies, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re sponses to sensations are quadrupled in its dreams, and they bring on in tensified memories of past troubles only faintly connected with ...
