A Good Two Miles. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
A Good Two Miles. After a hard day's work at manoeu vres, a battalion of soldiers were marching wearily along a seemingly interminable country road, when they met a man on horseback. • I say," said the officer in command, "how far is it to the next town?" "About two miles," was the reply. For another hour the soldiers tramped, and" then met another stran ger. "How far is it to the next town?" he was asked. ........... "A good two miles, I should say," was the reply. Another.hour passed, and then an other hor&eman, was encountered. "How far?" he repeated, in answer to the same question; "oh, not far, only about two miles." "Well," sighed the optimistic offi cer, "thank goodness, we are holding our own, anyhow."

THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with, "money in hand can select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around the four walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there is furniture and furniture, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, with each planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he wills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for the purchaser, the houseliold | er is not by this assured a tastefully | furnished home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer ...

WORMS. — :o: — SOME STRIKING SYMPTOMS. A child who. is afflicted with worms will often be in an indifferent state of health, It becomes peevish and irritable, and will have a strong ten dency to pick the nose, and there will be severe itching of the lower bowel. Grinding • of the teeth and suddenly start ing up iD the sleep will also be noticed. The bowels are irregular, sometimes consti pated, and at other times re laxed, with bloody discharges aa in dysentery, and not infrequently the | discharges will be in flakes and shreds, which might be taken for partly-digested food. .The best proof of wor.ras is -worms, and if their presence is suspected, imme diate steps should be. taken to positively establish the fact, and once established, Comstock's " Dead Shot "Worm Pellets should be administered, according to j directions; Worms require a specific medicine, and there is no remedy so effective as these Pellets. They kill the worms, destroy their eggs, and dislodge their nests. Comstoc...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
II. patty had gone to .Brighton atter the great misfortune, and she hart the tidings there. When they told her that she had become a rich wo man—one of the richest in the coun try—she gave way to hysterical tears, and seemed to insinuate that Heres ford had done her a wrong in dying at $1. The lie which she had told about the journey to New York should have been repeated by him on his deathbed out of simple loyalty to a woman. After all there had been no wrong, and why should not he have done it? A woman's logic could not understand. Patty had cried for two days after Leila went to prison. Frequent quarrels with her landlady and dramatic outbursts, in which she declared that she would tear down the prison walls with her own "poor fingers," varied the monotony of tears and did her health much good. A promise to go immediately to see her "dearest darling" whom a villain had sent to gaol was not fulfilled, partly because Leila herself hated scenes and did not wish it; partly be cause P...
WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. j True love is not the sudden product ! o£ a chance meeting. It is brought , about by a process of patience and ! pain, sacrifice and trust. In r love— true love at fix-st sight—one finds it a little difficult to believe, in spite of what many people say. Of course, t$vo people may on first meeting re cognise in each other a lovable and congenial companion, but to call this treu love is like calling a child edu | cated on its first going to school. I The love that lasts is a thing of j growth. It must be very often of | very gradual growth indeed. It must ^ be sunned with smiles, strengthened j with tenderness, shielded with afifcc | tion, watered with tears. And this ' process must go on through the years, for very sensitive, very holy, and in finitely lovely is the perfect flower. This love, though, that only grows in strength and beauty with each pass | ing year, has nothing in common with the "chocolate and concert" variety. One might as well compare the row l...

LEILA AKl» HEif LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arran gement - with Ward. Lock and Co. Ltd, Lond. and Melb (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XVIII. Three in - England. I. Desdy sent Leila a. great bunch of red roses and a misspelled letter from Datton. That was just five days after Heresford's death, and a postscrip tum in Geraldine's handwriting told her ."of the momentous event. "It may make a great deal of difference," Ger aldine said in her prosaic way—but Leila thought first of the flowers which the child had gathered. Roses, red roses—how few of their leaves had been scattered in her path! She remembered the Mourn e Mountains and the lonely garden and the .cottage wherein the lad's voice had- been heard. Here in her cell, she heard no bruit of the world save that which came from the streets afar. The women who told her what to do were so many • automata, without heart, and as it would seem withoui humanity. The man who loved her was across the seas—she thought sometimes that...
CHECKMATE. A Lesson in Chess that Really Wasn't Necessary. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
'CHECKMATE. A Lesson in Chess that Really Wasn't Necessary. "Now, my dear, I'll teach you a few special points in chess," said Mr. Golightly, as he settled himself fcr the evening. "Get the hoard a ad men, and you may bring my pipe, too." "It's so nice of you to be willing to show me " "Of course, my dear, you know it is a man's game—it really takes brain to play a good game of chess. I hope you will master it enough to make a garne interesting to me at times." "Yes, dear," answered Mrs. G., meekly. "Now, Mrs. Golightly, you can't play chess with the board at an an-' i.gle of forty-five degrees." "Degrees of what?" "Fahrenheit. Get a higher chair, and put your mind on the game—1 "I like this rocker—it's comfort able." "It's against all rules of chess to keep j.ogling " "I'll ?.ut a book on my lap. I've ieen studying the rules, but I didn't ;see anything about jiggling." Here the book slipped, and the board was only saved by the quick action of Mr. Golightly. : "If you think this is ...
ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
ENTERTAINING. Fortunately, or unfortunately, no I one goes constantly to 'another per- ! son's house unless it is made worth , his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence has gone a long way towards making her task easy. ! It is not mean, but natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying a visit or accepting an invitation. We may go to a house to he interested in conversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, see something we don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves with our visit. No one can with reason expect oth ed people to come and see them for more disinterested motives than they themselves are actuated by. After all, the affection which is bestowed with out asking anything in return can only be expected once or twice in a lifetime. I consider that entertaining is one of the most wholesome forms which a housewife's energies can take, pro vided ehe keeps it entirely subservi ent to her other home interests. To have a house'of your ...
HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? When snow falls in the Polar re gions, or at-liigh altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience 1 of young folks in the theatre of the Royal Geographical Society at Turl ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during ihe summer. So the layers of sn iw are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; hut on a high tableland there is no such es cape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up o great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is Ilia essen tial feature in the glacier. First the grains of ice are no bigger than a ■ pin's head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large ones absorb the s...
A REAL WOMAN-HATER. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914
A REAL WOMAN-HATER. ^ Carrying to his grave ail antipathy for the fair sex which characterised his long life of single blessedness, William H. Hartley, a -wealthy farmer, who recently died at the age of seven ty-three, provided in his will for the erection of a monument upon which shall be in imperishable lettering his preference for bachelorhood. After directing that a granite monument be placed over his grave, on which shall be carved an old bachelor standing on the brink of Jordan, preparing to cross the river, with a group of old maids on the other aide, each beckon ing to him, he requested that the fol lowing epitaph be engraved on the monument: "To an independe t, good-looking old bachelor, who in his younger days preferred living in single life than get married and have a petticoat boss ruling over him."
