Kipling and the Nightingale. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

Kipling and the Night ingale. *—.— Mr. Irvin Cobb, an American, has had a long chat with Mr. Kipling,v a summary of which ap pears in the New Yorlo ' Evening Post.' This is how Mr. Cobb de scribes Mr. Kipling : "He has a big jaw, and >Ue wears shiny glasses and shows his teeth like Theodore Roosevelt, and' he's a short man and blocky, with a big, strong hand." Mr. Kipling, in a walk after lunch, said he didn't know birds well, though he was fond of them, but he knew trees. "I wish you would stay until after dinner," said the poet to his'guest. "I'd like you to hear a nightingale that cornea. every evening to our garden. I'd like you to compare him with your mocking-bird. Tell me about the mocking-bird—what's j he like ?" Mr. Cobb said the Southern mock-! ing-bird was the troubadour of the woods, a licentious scoundrel, who left Mrs. Mocking-bird at home with the little ones and went serenading other bird-beauties—but withal, a fellow with romance in his soul, a true poet. "Well,"...

A Turtle Picnic at Night.

Not that of Sad die, however, for, with a hoarse yell to the stragglers behind, he did nn astonishing grand circus act, and, not stopping to halt and kneel the camel, hurled himself like the arms of windmill, to the ground and rushed forward to intercept a huge, crawling monster of a tur tle he espied that had nearly niade its escape, into the breakers. The othgr men joining him, the curious creature was soon tilted and turned over on its back, a helpless- fury of flapping flippers and snapping jaw9. The camels indulged in ridi culous thrills, panics and strange antics at sight of the fearsome beasts amd a camel doing a mas seul " in the chaste light of the moon is not a dignified sight, and still looked as...

BRUSHES WITH DEATH. AT THE LAST MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

BRUSHES WITH DEATH. 1 AT THE LAST MOMENT. . Few have had narrower escapes from a tragic death than^ the men of St. Kilda, when searching for sea-birds' eggs, suspended by "a rope from the summit of cliffs several hundred feet high. Of one such es cape the following thrilling story is told. The egg-hunter had been lowered over the cliff, when sud denly a loop that had been made in his rope, -with the object of shorten ing it, caught in a projecting pin nacle. The sudden jerk slipped the knot of the loop, and down the climber dropped some thirty feet in to space, until he was brought up with a terrific jerk. When he recovered his senses, he saw on' looking up, that the fall had cut his rope and that he was hanging by a single strand. To add to his horror the men at the top of the cliff, ignorant of what had happened, began to haul him up. At any second the frail strand might break, and precipitate him to certain death two hundred feet or more below. There was only one chance of saving...

Really? [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

Really ? " They call the Mexican Indians lazy," said the traveller, "but the Mexican Indian is the only man I've even seen who works while he sleeps. "In the interior of Mexico one balmy January afternoon I came upon an Inffian hut romantically situated beside a stream. A ham mock of native grass was .swung across a narrow branch of the stream, an Indian slept ih the ham mock, and a string, tied to his foot, dangled in the water ? "As I approached the string tightened with a jerk. The Indian awoke. He seieed the string, and hauled it in. There was a fish of three pounds' weight at the end of it. " 'Here you are, Mercedes !' shout ed tbe Indian. "His brown wife came and re moved the fish. She rebaited the hook. Then the Indian, lying back in the hammeck again, resumed his sleep-angling a*t." 1950 "You 'are always taking about the high cost of living." "Well, that's about all I hear at home."

About April Fools. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 17 October 1914

Abput April Fools. T Nobody, appears to be able to say, with any degree of certainty, how, when, or why the custom of trying to make fools of one's friends and neighbours on the morn j ing of April 1st came into being. The custom is'not by any means confined to England. It prevails almost throughout the world. In Scotland they call an ■ April fool .a gowk (cudkoo) : the French call j him un poeson d'Avril—that is to ;say, a mackerel. We ourselves have the expression, "You silly mac kerel !" and silly indeed are most \. of the people- who get caught by the jokes engendered on April 1st. Some authorities say that the custom owes its origin to the pro verbial uncertainty of April wea ther ; others, to the mockery trial of our Lord. But similar tricks are played in Hindustan, at the Huli Festival (March 31st.) Perhaps, then, it , may be a relic of the Roman "CereaKa,"- held at the beginning of April. The tale is that Proserpina was sporting in the Ely si an meadows, and had just filled ...

HOW TO CUT GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 October 1914

HOW TO CUT GLASS. There is a nietho<l of <. catting glass .without the aid of a dia mond which is very little known. Take a piece of common string, and dip it in alcohol and squeeze it reasonably dry. Then tie the string tightly around the glass on the line of cutting. Touch a match to the string and let it burn off. The heat of the burning string will weaken the glass in this particular place. While it is hot plunge the glass under water, letting the arm go under well to the elbow so that there will be. no vibration when the glass is struck. With the free hand strike the glass outside the line of cutting, giving a quick, sharp stroke with any long flat in strument, such as a stick of wood or a long-bladed knife, and the cut. will be as clean and straight as if made by a regular^ glass cutter.. • - 'At a recent "meet," the hounds were in full cry across a large field, surrounded by a log hedge, and a , wide 'ditch. ^ Presently there was - a crash and a thud. . ...
