THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914

THE WORLD, The world is well lost when tile world Is wrong, No matter how men deride yeou, For If you a:re patient and I'irm andll strong, You will find It in timeo (though the time he long) That the world wheels 'round be ,silde you. It' you dare to sail first o'er a new thought track, For awhile it will scourge and score yaql; Then, coming abreast with a skilful tack, It will clasp your hand and slap your back, And vow It was there beforeo you. The world mleans well, thoullgh it wander and stray Fi:om the straight, short cut to duty; So go ahead in that path, I say, For after awhile it will come your way ihringiug its pleasures and beauty. --Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

ROYAL WATCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

ROYAL WATCHMEN. "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown," says the poet, but the precau tions that are taken to assure undis turbed rest to King George must at least bring quiet to his pillow. The outside of the Royal palace is, of c urse, guarded by soldiers and detec tives all night; and several night watchmen pace up and down the corri dors through the hours of darkness. These men are shod in thick felt slippers, so that their footsteps will not wake the royal sleeper, and one of them is always-near the King's room until His Majesty is called by lis valet in the morning. Every door and window in the pal ace is frequently examined and it would be Impossible for any intruder to got In without being discovered. The King is as well protected as the Czar of Russia, who has a guard of armed Cossacks outside of his room, or the King of Spain, who Is wvtohed by a squad of specially-picked soldiers who keep the keys of all the doors of the palace during the night,

"A FEW YEARS AGO." TI-IH MAN WE WISHED DEAD, LOUIS BOTHA-AB SOLDIER, The rare qualities of judgment and courage shown by General Botha In the various stages of the Boer .War are recounted in the "Pall Mall" Magazine, When the Doers first took the offensive, Botha's name was un. known to the world, but as "Lines. man" says:- New stars are discovered in the heavens often by accident, often by their influence upon visible bodies whilst they themselves are yet be. low the horizon, By both these means we early fighters in Natal, in the autumn days of 1899, were able to forecast some powerful agent at work below the dull sky of the Doer strategy, an agent which bade fair at times to gather the scattered luminaries of small successes into one baleful glare which would have utter ly put out the flickering British cause, Prisoners taken In the very bosom of the colony averred that, had one man but had his way, Joubert's great raid, Instead of stopping timorously on the Mooi, would have pierc...

WOMAN'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

WOMAN'S REVENGE. Bilsmarck had little regard for wo men who attempted to think for them solves in matters of State and poli ties. Moreover, he never took any pains to conceal his dislike for them. Occasionally, however, when his ad versary was a clever woman, he found the snub returned as effectively as lihe gave it. One day he paid a visit to the Russian Embassy at Berlin. Se. veral women who were present join.. ed in the conversation, which turned on some of the political questions of the day. Bismarck was as gruff and surly to the women as usual; he flout. ed even the mistress of the house, the Countess Schouvaloff. At last, to the relief of everybody, Bismarck took his leave. A few mo ments later the family mastiff was heard barking at the great man in the courtyard. Immediately the Countess ran to the open window and called, in tones of gentle entreaty: "Oh, please, Monsieur le Chancellor, please don't bite my dog!"

CHEERS FOR THE WINNERS. ENGLISH FOOTBALL FINAL. DEFEATED TEAM DESERTED. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

CHEERS FOR THE WINNERS,. FENGLISH FOOTBAILL FINAL. DEFEATED TEAM DESERTED, As showing the grip the football mania has on the English it is record ed that six thousand one hundred and thirty.four pounds were taken at the Cup Final at the Crystal Palace. Neither of the teams, Burnley nor Liverpool, was considered first-class, but each had fought its way resolute ly through tlhe qualifying rounds, and will now be able to collect as good ai team as money can command. It is well worth while, says an English writer, for any club to gamble a lit tie in order to secure the services of players that will take them into the final rounds. The Football Assocla tioln, when it shares out the money which was taken, will have to pay tile ,lverpool executive £9065 and the Durnley club £14,438. With their bank balances made plethorie by these huge cheques, Burnley and Iverpool will be able to strengthen their ranks, so that both Aston Villa and Sunder land will have to beware of them next season., The...

PLAYING WITH FATE, ACTOR SQUEEZED BY PYTHON. Actors for motion picture dramas are called on to face death in awful form in the pursuit of their profes sion. In a drama, entitled "In the Coils of a Python," Mr. S. Balin bridge, an American actor, had a ter rible experience, Mr. Bainbridge was the villain. At the close of a parti cularly wicked day this character tried to elude justice on horseback.

But during the three days of torture in which the letter had lain ii his pocket, the canker had eaten into his soul, until it was more than he could bear alone, And now, after his mother's words, he know that he could look for no one to share his burden, He was crushed down by a double sorrow. His mother's words and 'looks almost broke his heart, and, towering above his own personal griefs was the agony of the thought, "What would be the end-for Elsie?"

HINTS FOR SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 11 July 1914

HINTS FOR SMOKERS. A good meerschlaum pipe demandls plenty of attention. If you carry it loose in your pocket pieces of grit will probably scratch it. Keep it In a case except when actually smoking it. If you wish to color a meerschaum, bear those few points in mind, Use a strong tobacco at first, shag for pro. forence. Put a plug at the bottom of the bowl. Ordinarily the bottom of the bowl colors before the upper part, but this plug reverses the process. When the top of the pipe has become .n even brown remove the plug. Don't smoke the meerschaum in a high wind or when out in the rain. The wind may color it unevenly, the rain will spot it. Don't let it get too hot, and be careful not to scratch it with your finger.nails, The best pipe to smoke is a briar. Clean it out once a week by running a piece of string through the stem, and it will give you just as good a smoke and less trouble than the meerschaum, clay, or a calabash. String makes a better pipe-cleaner than a feather, as it ...
