As Translated. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
As Translated. At a large warehouse there is em ployed a boy who attends to a lift in the daytime and studies literature at night. A few days ago he was given his wages with a small fine deducted lor some breach of the regulations. Quite indignant, he went to the mana ger, and began:— "Sir, if you should ever find it with in the scope of your jurisdiction to levy assessment on my wages for some trivial act alleged to have been committed by myself, I would suggest that you refrain from exercising that prerogative. The failure to do so would force me to tender my resigna tion." The manager, tottering, reached for his chair, but managed to ask what was meant. He received the answer in less flowery language:— "In other words, if you fine me again I'm going to chuck it."
CHAPTER XVII. A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
CHAPTER XVII. A Great Invention. I It was indeed hard for Geoffrey Herepath to realise the full measure of his misfortune. But a little time before lie had eeen hla way clear to the goal of his ambition. He had all the sanguine outlook of the inventor, but he had never been a mere dream er of dreamB, had never wasted his time and intelligence on Utopian spec ulation. His was a strongly practical nature, and it was always the working value of the machine that appealed to him. Machinery! New and ingenious de vices for the saving of labor, contri vances that turned waste material in to articles of cjinniv.oe! In these things he saw the way to fortune, to the employment of thousands of hands, to power in the country, to an honored name amongst men. All these prizes of life Herepath would, lie felt, be able to lay at Enid Har ley's feet! So, at least it had seemed to him but a little time before. A week or two longer and he would be able to show the world how to make new rubber from old....

Gilray thought hard as fie looked at Daniel Harley. So these people were thieves, a£ter all. Nobody but a criminal with some shady proposi tion would have approached a man in this way. In ordinary circumstan ces, as a man of reputation, Gilray would have risen to his feet and left, the house without another word. There was no occasion to tell him that Daniel Harley was going to make some dishonorable proposal The very attitude of tlve miser was eloquent of tliat, the furtive glance, the hoarse whisper, all were so many signs that something underhand was intended. Gilray hesitated. He knew perfect ly well that he was not to be permu ted to obtain this money he needed I by legitimate means.

AMUSING INCIDENTS. 1 . i "So," said the visitor, "you intend to become a physician when you grow up?" "Yes, sir," said the youth. "And why have you decided upon the medical profession?" "Well, a doctor seems to be the only man that keeps on getting paid j >'.is work is satisfactory or not.! Father and son went for a stroll one sweltering day recently. A,s they passed a vendor'of ice-cream tlie boy turned to his father and said, lovingly:— "1 vish you'd puy me some ice cream, fader. 1 do feel warm."

"No, tha' can't- Aw con tak' misel hoam," she retorted proudly. "You are as full of airs as a hand organ," he spitefully declared. " 'Appen aw am," she answered.

DICKENS' CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
DICKENS' CAT. Charles Dickens was a lover of animals, and like all true lovers -ie was likely to become the slave of his pets. Williainina, a little white cat, was a favorite with the entire house hold, but showed ail especial devotion to its master. She selected a corner of his study for her kittens, and brought them in from the kitchen one by one. Mr. Dickens had them tak-;n away again, but Williamina only brought them quietly back. Again they were removed, but the third time of their return she did not leave them in the corner. Instead, she placed them at her master's feet, and taking her stand beside them, loGked implor ingly up at him. That settled the question. Thereafter the kittens be longed to the study, and they made themselves royally at home, swarm ing up the curtains, playing about the writing-table, and scampering behind the bookshelves. Most of the family were given away; only one remained, entirely deaf, and known, from her devotion to Dickens, as "the master's cat."...

WHAT WAR MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
WHAT WAR MEANS. "All fair in love and war," runs the old saying, and Mr. E. A.Vizetelly, in his volume of reminiscences, "My Days of Adventure," proves the truth of it. Referring to the appearance of the railway station at Nantes during the Franco-German War, he says:— Never since have I seen anything resembling it. A thousand panes of glass belonging to windows or roofing had been shivered to atoms. Every mirror in either waiting or refresh ment rooms had been pounded to pieces; every gilt frame broken into little bits. The clock lay about in small fragments; account books and printed forms had been torn to scraps; partitions, chairs, tables, benches, boxes, nests of drawers, had been hacked, split, broken, reduced to mere strips of wood. 'The large stoves were overturned and broken, and the marble refreshment counter—some thirty feet long, and previously one of the features of the station—now strewed the floor in particles, suggest ing gravel. It was, indeed, an amaz ing sight, th...

A REPORTER SURPRISED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
A REPORTER SURPRISED. Aii amusing incident is described by a "Cape Argus" reporter. While he was taking a walk on the mountain slopes recently he was surprised to see four uniformed policemen and a detective in plain clothes making their way up the mountain. He cau tiously followed them to a deserted farmstead in the vicinity of a tin in ine on Devil's Peak. They then surrounded the building, made a con certed dash, and entered it through the doors and windows. The pressman rushed up, and through the window saw a struggle between the police and four Malays. On the floor lay the unconscious form of a white girl, attended by an old colored woman. The Malays •were secured, and from a conversation which ensued, it appeared that the girl had been the victim of a dastard ly plot and forced into a marriage with one of the Malays. The pressman, believing he was on the track of a sensational scoop, burst in on the scene, and was told in strong language to "get out of the way." Then for the f...
MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. "I think I have succeeded because I cared more for my credit than for my clothes." To Mr. Frederick Weyer haeuser, the lumber king and "secret millionaire" of America, who died re cently, is attributed this saying. It is probably true, for Weyerhaeuser, whoso . wealth is estimated at any thing up to £100,000,000, attributed his unusual success to his ability to gain and keep the trust of everyone with whom he came into contact. Very little is known of the personal ity of Wcyerhaeuse., v.-'noso entire life-work was based on the idea of secrecy. He went to America when he was about eighteen years of age, and began life as a youth in a saw mill. Ultimately he bought the mill and laid the foundation of his huge fortune, when, while on a visit to Wis consin forests, he realised that, for all their vastness, they were not in exhaustible, and that within a com paratively few years the supply of lumber would be incommensurate with its demand. He therefore began to 'bu...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. If when frying fish of any kind a little salt is sprinkled on the bottom of the pan when it Is hot and the fat boiling, the fish can be easily turned without breaking in the least. Cut flowers will remain fresh long er i£ the stems are cut with a sharp knife instead o£ a pair of scissors. The latter compresses the stems and pre vents the water from reaching the top. Before frying bacon it is a good plan to put the rashers into boiling water for two or three minutes. They plump out to twice their ordinary thickness, and all chance is removed of their being too salt. Stains on white flannel can some times be removed by rubbing them with glycerine and yolk of egg mixed in equal quantities. Spread on the stain, leave for half an hour, then wash the garment as usual. Two drops of camphor on your toothbrush will give your mouth the freshest, cleanest feeling imaginable, and will make your gums rosy and ab solutely prevent anything like cold sores or affections on your to...
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
PONY'S SWIMMING FEAT. The s.s. Loanda lay pitching and rolling in the West African surf ol'f Accra, whilst cargo of various sorts was being discharged over her sides into surf boats, manned by Kroo boys. Various shouts went up when a couple of bales of Manchester goods fell out of the slings and into ilie sea. Shouts of glee from the Krooboys, but something stronger from the mate, who was in charge of unloading. The next load was a grey pony, which we had shipped at Las Palmas, consigned to a Government official at Accra. Slings were lixed under tn pony's body, and he was hoisted by rope and derrick, then lowered into the waiting surf boat which was pitching up and down. As soon as the pony felt his feet touch the boat bottom, he started plunging about, and as these surf boats are little lar ger than a ship's boat, the expected happened. First the natives jumped clear of his heels into the shark-in fested sea, and the next moment the pony also, was swimming about. With shouts and gr...
BEAUTY FOR ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
BEAUTY FOR ALL. Ladies, this is a special article for you. Ol' course you wish to be pretty —you would not be a woman if you did not. But it may be you object to the use of cosmetics. All men don't like the taste of face-powder, and many prefer to see these aids to beauty confined to the ladies of the stage. Besides, to use cosmetics pro perly is an art, and you may not un derstand how to apply that delicate make-up which adds so much to the appearance of the woman who is past the first bloom of youth. Nevertheless, we think you will ho interested 111 the latest beauty hint, which introduces a principle iu cos metics which you may have never tried; for there is a way to use rouge which is warranted to be free from all objections, and is given on the au thority of a medical journal of re pute. First go to any respectable drug gist or chemist, and ask for rouge o£ good quality. It need not be ex pensive—just good rouge, applied, not with a bit of chamois or rag, but with a rabbit's fo...
ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
ABERDEEN MAN'S LUCK. A visit which an Aberdeen business gentleman named Mr. A. M. Suther land paid to Rome about a year ago has had a somewhat unexpected but pleasing sequel. While travelling in the vicinity of the Italian capital, Mr. Sutherland was accosted by a man be longing to the hawking fraternity and induced to buy as a memento of his visit a statuette, to all appearances made of bronze. The figure was that of a Roman soldier, and the price paid for it was thirteen lires, equivalent to 10/10 in' English money. Shortly afterwards Mr. Sutherland was travelling between Florence and Venice, and at a wayside junction a travelling bag, which formed part of his luggage, was missing. The bag contained the statuette, and its loss was reported to Cook's Tourist Agency. M nths passed, however, and .Mr. Sutherland heard nothing of his missing bag, but recently the bag was recovered and forwarded to the owner. The statuette was found in tact, nnd, although not attaching much value to his...

PERFECT WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
PERFECT WOMEN. If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out the results. First as to height, tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is 5ft. 5iu. in height, and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. Bin., 13Slb. is the proper weight, and if she be well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle linger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a sev enth, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of the head. The knee should come exactly midway between the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger should be the same as the ...

No Sympathy. "Waiter," said the man in the hotei dining-room, "there's a fly in this ice cream." "Serves him right, sir," replied the waiter. "Let him stay there and freeze to death. He was in the soup yesterday." "How was your speech received?" asked one Labor member of another. "When I sat down they said It was the best thing I ever did," was the reply. _
