Don't ever fancy that you are too old to try and improve. We are never too old to develop new faults and failings, and we ought never be too old to try and conquer them.

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. As a result of the hobby oL' a young resident in Hurstnioneeaux, this pretty Sussex village now enjoys all the advantages of an electric light in stallation. Mr. C. W. Von Roemer, son of Karon Von Roemer, took up electrical engineering as a hobby a few years ago, fitting up his father's house wiHi electric light. To-day, as the result of this early hobby, the vil lage at night resembles a patch of Piccadilly, and housewives turn on a switch to cook their husbands' din ners and heat their rooms. When I visited this "electric vil lage," says a writer. I found that nearly everybody, including the blacksmith, butcher and bn.ker, were using electric power to help them in their work. Mr. Von Roemer explained liow the "miracle" had been brought about. "After fitting up my father's house with electric light," he said, "I though it would be a good idea to ex tend the plant to the village. "At first the villagers objected. They had never known any other light excopt candles ...

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If you don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do its work efficiently. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the fiour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost sure to awake somewhere near it^ By extending this system you chn obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you wi...

Books and Bacon. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

Books and Bacon. A miner, who was proud of liis' boy's attainments at school, one even ing picked up a home-lesson book and read from it a quotation which ran like this: "Some books should be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digested.—Bacon." Turn ing to his boy, he said: — "What's this, sonnie? Thou doesn't eat hooks at school, does tha? I know you are very clever, but you cannot do those nannygoat tricks, I'm sure. I'll warrant that'll be one of those printer's errors, sonnie." "Oh, no, father," said the boy. "Me taphorically speaking, wo eat books." "Now, you cannot diddle me like that," said the father. "I didn't go to school very long, but I ken that's one of those "printer's errors. Why, son nie, can thou not see? He's put the word 'Bacon' in the wrong place. It should be, 'Some bacon should be tasted, some swallowed, and some chewed and digested.'"

Burial Place of Spanish Royalty. « The Escurial, to which the body of the Infanta Maria Theresa was re cently conveyed with the usual cere monies, has been for long genera tions the last resting-place of the Royal family of Spain, and the tra ditions havo always been strictly observed. Alfonso XIII. when showing some distinguished foreign visitors over the building, saw ono of them go up to a certain door, and laughingly remarked : "Not so fast, my friend ; I'm in 110 hurry to go through that door. We Span ish kings never pass there till we are carried through." Another curious characteristic of j the Escurial is the " I'udridor." : Here the Collin containing the dead monarch is conveyed, and built in with masonry' '"and quicklime.

A Good Two Miles. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 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 horseman 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."

Good for the Quaker. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914

Good for the Quaker. In describing his own wedding, the author of "A Retrospect of Forty Years" records the remark of a guest, of which he says, "For genuine Qua ker wit this will be found hard to match. The bridal couple received a striking salutation from a Quaker client of the bridegroom's, a shrewd dry goods merchant. Presented by an usher, he surveyed the bride, whom he had never seen before, and then, with the utmost deliberation, proceed ed to say: "William, I think thy bride has shown more judgment in her choice than thou hast." Fortunately, before the newly-mar ried man could turn to resent this strange salutation, he continued as follows: — "Because it takes some penetration to discover thy good qualities, but •hers can be seen at a glance." When a man wishes to depreciate another man he attacks his intelli gence; he calls him a fool or an idiot. But when a woman attacks a woman, she always goes for her face.
