NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
NEWLY.ENGAGED GIRLS, Why is it that a newly.engaged girl is a thorn In the flesh to all her dis. engaged sister women? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-eno gaged)-she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz. ed upon her first proposal will patron. Ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When slhe isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar. ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she Is so hopelessly selfish, But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin Ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an insignificant...

HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE SAW. The earlest tool that has been traced in Egyptian history is the saw. It was found first in the form of a notched bronze knife in the third dynasty, or about five thousand years before the Christian era, and was followed in the fourth and fifth dynasties by largo toothed saws, which wore used by car penters; but there are no dated speci mons until the seventh century before the Christian era, when the Assyrians used iron saws. The first knives on record weore made out of flint, and woreo, in foot, saws with minuto teeth. They probably weore used for cutting up animals, as the tooth would break away oven on soft wood. Rasps, which are but a form of saw, were first made of sheets of bronze punched and coiled round, but the Assyrians in the sov onth century used the straight rasp made of iron similar to the modern type.
