THE BEST SELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
THE BEST SELLERS. Sir«4l. Rider Haggard is surely no laggard; lie's turning out narratives six at a ti.no; he's always so busy it makes a man dizzy, and stirs up the envy 'of E. Oppenheim. He's still writing stories concerning the glories of African chiefs in the dim long ago, of braves and witch-finders and seers who wore blinders yet spelled out a future of bloodshed and woe. An H. Rider story is reeking and gory, an epic of carnage and battle and crime, and Rider is writing romances of fighting so often lie dazes poor E. Oppenheim, E. Phillips, God bless him!-it's ill to distress liini!-has long held the record for turning out junk; with toes and with fingers he wrote humdingers, and each of his efforts were surely most punk. He long wore the laurel, and 110 one could quarrel with film lor a minute, disputing his bays: his reign now is ended, and lie has descended, ere reaching his dotage, on dark, evil days. For 1 will be jaggered if H. Rider Haggard can't beat him a block in a ...

NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. There is 110 merit in having ;i hard lime in this lifi\ There is 110 sin in merely having an easy lime here.

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent or "To-Day" tells 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 Tolcio in a rickshaw. There was a keen breeze blowing, but it was 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 coolie ...

FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. Rather u risky substitute for a bat tlefield is the top of an omnibus, but -there have been not a few Homeric struggles- 011 "imperiales," as they are termed in Paris. The latest adventure, says the Paris ci rresuondent of the "Daily Tele graph." of (lie sort owed its origin to a very' comical mistake. ?..'.At1 a parti cular Parisian ollice there ascended to the .?summit of one of these vehicles mi Individual of very comfortable di mensions, who was speedily immersed in the study of his newspaper, a pretty and well-dressed woman, many years his junior, and an elderly man, who looked like a retired officer. The omnibus had hardly started when the old beau began to cast glances ex pressive of intense admiration at his fair neighbor, and although he re ceived 110 encouragement lie contin ued his attempt to get up a flirtation with her finite unabashed.

The brother and sister went into the house, where the amazed and de lighted squire and his wife gave their son a most hearty welcome. Indeed, Mrs. O'Doyle shed tears as she kiss ed her "beautiful, boy," as she called him. Shamus knew exactly how to act in the home of his ancestors.

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no mid to the resources of linger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised- that tile slock does not run out. But even this wastefulness or the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is liol economised. It is not put to good purposes. It'is squandered. It is not. skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at. a target. Indeed, men show cli-arly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good ariiele of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to 'be used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go 011 firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about tlie yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Vet so do men leL off the precious force of temper invaluable treasure of auger...
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 18 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. ! The education of an infant should commence as soon as it is born as good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby.ir fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to suck to "keep it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bound together; one cannot have i good character with bad habits. T.he habit of obedience is one of the first to, be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wron.1?, but perhaps at first the wrong pat...

FOOTBALL. WILBY AND DISTRICT ASSOCIATION TUNGAMAH V. LAKE ROWAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; The opening of the first round in connection with the above association was signalised last Saturday afternoon. Tungamah, with a fair following, visited Lake Rowan. Good organi- sation work having been done, the team may he classified as being a strong unit, and several reputable players who were prepared to don the blue and white uniform— in which, by the way, the members looked unusually smart— had to stand aside. Lake Rowan also put a rattling team into the field, in- cluding many of its battle-scarred players of former seasons. They were led by H. Irvine. In the line-up prior to the match Harry Whimpey was &nbsp; &nbsp; elected captain and Jack Meyer vice- captain of the Tungamah contingent. The weather was all that could be desired for the winter pastime ; conse- quently, a fair number of Lake Rowan ladies graced the scene. The playing- ground was hard — extremely hard...

SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS IN THE DARK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS IN THE DARK. The death has just taken place at Stockholm ol Miss Christina Witlund, an eccentric and wealthy woman. Seventy-five years ago Miss "VVitland, then a handsome young girl o£ eigh teen, was engaged tc be married to a ; (lashing oflicer ol' the Royal Guards, and everything was ready for the wed ing, when the bridegroom suddenly broke off the engagement, and eventu ally married another. Miss Witlund, it is said, nearly lost her reason from the effects of the shock, and when she finally recovered made a solemn vow never to look upon treacherous man again. Her parents being dead, she had sole control of her own affairs, and she shut herself up in the house, where she remained for the whole of her life without ever going out. For seventy-five years she saw no other human being than her servant girls. Living as one dead in the midst of the bustle of modern civilisation, she had never seen trains, steamships, tramway cars, taxicabs, airships, or aeroplanes. Eve...

A PUZZLING TRANSACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
A PUZZLING TRANSACTION. Now and again one comes across a problem which is dccidedly puzzling. Jlere is one which may cause some of our readers to wonder why sucli an innocent-looking transaction should be so difficult to explain. It is the custom o£ ten employes at a certain firm to have drinks all'round on the understanding that each man on pay-day 'before separating, always has to stand a round of twopenny drinks or twopenny smokes. For con venience they at first separated into parties of five, which meant that the members of each party spent lOd. each on drinks or smokes, the total for each party thus being -1/2, or 8/4 altogether. On one occasion, however, the ten men divided into one party of six and one of four, with the result that the six expended 6/-1/- each-while the cost to the four was 2/8-8d. each making-a total of 8/8.
