Brain and Muscle. , The manager of a factory went into I the store one day and saw one of the ' storemen tugging at a bis case of goods. His face was red, and the muscles on his neck were ~ bulging ; out I "Hold on t.:ore, Jack," cried the ! manager, "allow mo to demonstrate ' to you the power of brain over mtis I cle." He then grabbed a hook that j was on a shelf and stuck it into the i case, and, giving it a quick jerk, he I fell backward into a pile of rubbish. He rose as gracefully as he could, I saying to the storeman, "Bother it, I the handle was loose!" ! "Yes, sir," replied Jack, "that's why | I didn't use It."

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. By C. T. Capper. Artemiis Graydon, editor and owner owner of tahe "Scrutineer," swung round on his revolving-chair to greet his visitor. The latter politely ac cepted the implied invitation to be seated. Grasped in his hand, Mr. Lionel Bur ton, stockbroker and company promo ter, carried a copy of that week's "paper," and Graydon's eyes twinkled as he noted its deep green cover. It indicated in itself the purpose of Mr. Burton's visit to the offices of-that influential financial publication. Gray don had made his journal a power in the land. Commendation in its col umns spelt success—an adverse judg ment usually portended failure. Mr. Lionel Burton had tacitly admit' ted this when a "par" in that week's number relating to himself caught his eye. It mattered little that tho cri- j ticism levelled at his latest scheme | was at the bottom unfounded. The in- ' v,pg,in" r'"111" criminate between himself and oth ers whom Graydon had run foul of.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 22 August 1914
II. Long months of reflection convinc ed Lionel Burton that he had been foolish in flinging down the gage of battle to Graydon openly. A frontal attack on a powerfully-entrenched enemy might be grandly quixotic; but it was not war. He discovered that the rules of the game were elastic, al lowing many variations in tactics, and that men judged by results only. As lie digested these cynical truths, as similating thom to the hard facts of life, he found that back of all his ob servations lay an inflexible desire to get even with his enemy. By slow stages he had drifted to New York, where he allowed his for mer clean shaven countenance to sport an iron-grey growth of beard. Then chance, twelve moiniis later, flung him on speaking terms with Graydon. It happened in the corridor of a fashionable hotel, where the great men merely inquired of Burton the lo cality of the manager's office. The desired Information was given readily—almost before recognition be .came definite; but the unexpecte...

The deceased was between SO and 90 years of age, and was popular with all sections of the community. The sad occurrence has caused quite a gloom over ScarB dale.

IS THE MODERN GIRL. DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 29 August 1914
IS THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? Some men seem to labor under the idea that women were born to be slaves. These selfish beings are con less yomesticfited as the generatib*^.. 4-— progresses. ' ""7!'' - •*'' ' They are alarming themselves un necessarily, for when the average girl gets married she generally takes to domesticity as naturally as a duck to water, even if she has had but lit tle previous experience. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, and probably those people who love to pick holes in the modern girl's habits base their observations on these ex ceptions. Certainly girls have more liberty, and do not spend as much time in the home as their grandmothers. And why not? They have as much right to enjoy their liberty as men. When a sensible girl contemplates mar riage she makes it her 'business to get to know the ropes, so that she may fill the role ot housewife with credit to herself and all concerned; but this should not prevent her from having her liberty. ...
