BLIND WATCHMAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

BLIND WATCHMAKERS. Blind people-those who have been born blind-are, as is well known, ex ceedingly clever with their fingers, but it is not often that we liear of a. watchmaker who was born blind. And yet there have been instances of the kind. A famous blind watchmaker lived at Holbeach, in Lincolnshire. His name was Rippin, and, although com pletely blind, he could take to pieces and put together again watches of most delicate . construction with the' greatest ease, and in quicker time than most watchmakers who have the advantage of good eyesight. On one occasion some of the tiny wheels and screws used in his trade were stolen from him, but the thief was captured with the property on his person, and Rippin identified them by his delicate sense of touch. A Barnstape watch and clock maker brought up his blind son to his trade, and the young man proved so skilful that on more than one occasion he detected faults in timepieces which other tradesmen had failed to disco ver.

SHE WAS THE NECK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

SHE WAS THE NECK. j There are husbands who, among their male companions, like to have jit supposed that they are just a lit t tie tyrannical at home. One such | man, who had two or three friends I at his house one evening, remarked, as they were chatting together com fortably at a rather late hour: "Yes, I do what I like iat home. My wife, she has to bend to my will, I can tell you. In my own house I'm a re gular Julius Caesar." His wife, came' into the room in i, time to hear this last sentence. The [ tyrant of his household looked a lit 1 tie uneasy, but - his wife neither frowned nor, apparently, paid any at tention to the remark. But, after a moment, she remarked, very positive ly: "Gentlemen, it is late, and Julius Caesar has got to go to bed." Whereupon the husband arose, stammered his excuses, and retired, leaving his guests to find their way o t as best they could. It-was in another household that the husband once remarked to his wife: "You know, my dear, that I'm the head o...

Some Clerical Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

Some Clerical Stories. According to "Anecdotes of Pulpit and Parish," Canon Knox Little knew of a "lych-gate in front of a church which was being restored, over the front o£ which was painted, "This is /the Gate of Heaven!"" while under neath was a notice in. large letters: ?"Go round the other way." There is a story told by P. H. Ditchfleld of a London vicar who liked to have a hymn sung at family pray ers. In order to interest his servants he allowed them to choose the hymns. One day his wife complimented the cook on her selection. "What a nice hymn you, chose 1" "Yes, arium," she replied; '-it's the tiumber of Hiy per liceman!' ^ The bishop of/ Peterborough, Dr. Magee, being plagued to go and open all sorts of things-churches, school bazaars, and so forth--exclaimed one day to the Bishtp of Leicester: ."I do believe very soon there will not be a young curate in the diocese who has bought a new umbrella who will not apply to the Bishop to come and open It."

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

**: CONFE88ION8 OF A LINER .CHAPLAIN. .' {There is nothing that produces a feeling of speedy death quicker than eea-sickness. It is very rarely that anyone actually succumbs to it, but if, a person suffers from it badly it is dif ficult to drive home the fact that re covery Is certain. I have seen all the horrors of a deathbed scene enacted over people suffering from an acute attack. Knowing that In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred It leaves no serious effect, it is very difficult to assume that you are ministering to the dying. And at times a perfectly aincere effort in this direction will terminate in comedy. People lie in their bunks pale as death. The chap lain is fetched, and he is assured by the sufferer that burial at sea is a cer tainty. He is of another opinion, but maintains if possible a sympathetic tone. I confess to having cultivated many hypocritical looks and senti ments, which I have sometimes enjoy .ed. One night I was called to the bunk of an old man who had been...

"HORSE POWER." [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

"HORSE POWER." It is not everyone who knows the exact meaning of the term "horse power" as applied to steam engines. The following is the explanation given by Professor Farey in a book on the steam engine: - The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries of London was moved 'by horses, and the proprie tors of those establishments, who were among the first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what number of norses an intended engine would replace. Consequently Mr. Watt made some experiments on the strong horses em ployed by the brewers of London, and found that a horse of that kind, walk ing at the rate of two and one-half miles an hour, could draw one hun dred and fifty pounds avoirdupois by means of a rope passing over a pulley, so as to raise up that weight, with a vertical motion, at the rate of two hundred and twenty feet a minute. This exertion'of mechanical power ia equal to raising thirty^three thousand pounds-or five hundred and twenty eight cubic feet of w...

EDISON'S FIRST INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

EDISON'S FIRST INVENTION. It is stated that when Edison was a telegraph operator much annoyance was caused by cockroaches getting into the tin cans in which the boys carried their lunches. 'Various meth ods of getting rid of them were tried, but without success, and then Bdlson made a bet that he would exterminate the foe. The next day the dinner cans were pil <1 in a heap, and the wizard sur rounded them with a circl ot tinfoil ribbon about one Inch wide. About a quarter of an inch away he placed a similar circle, both ribbons being upright, and then connected them with a battery. Along came the cockroaches. To surmount the obstacles they had to place the hind-legs on the outer rib bon and their forelegs on the inner one. The moment they did so, the circuit was completed and they top pled orer dead. True hope is based on strength of character. A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope, because it knows the mutability of human affairs and how slight a cir c...

DETECTIVE VERSUS CRIMINAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

DETECTIVE VERSUS CRIMINAL. "About the neatest way I was ever had," remarked a London ex-detective, "was in a great Paris forgery case in 1865. Two of my anticipated victims, a man and woman, came to London, and took up their abode in a poor street off the New Cut. "How to watch them without suspi cion was rather a problem, for in that savory neighborhood detectives are not popular. At length I concluded to personate a coster, and so took up my position as a vendor of walnuts, at the corner of my-friends' street. "One day an entire stranger pulled up at my stall, and purchased some nuts. I pocketed the half-crown he tc dered, counting out into his hand t*"' and fourpence change. "No sooner had I finished than he exclaimed: 'This won't do!' And he slammed the florin down on the stall. "It was not the one I had given him, but for all that I was marched off by a stolid policeman for uttering false coin, in spite of my protestations. "By the time I was released my parties had got safely ...

NERVOUS WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

NERVOUS WOMEN. When the nerves get out of order the whole system lags in sympathy. The digestive system, the liver, and the heart all refuse to do their work. Every nervous woman should eat sev eral times a day. She should eat three meals, have a light luncheon between meals, and never omit a warm drink taken just before she goes to bed. Gentle exercise and work are as ne cessary to the woman with nerves as food and fresh air. An active interest in life will be her salvation, but gen erally the woman in such a conditio:1 thinkB she is not interested In a thing in life so she must keep at work un til she develops an interest. A celebrated physician has said "If you wish to avoid nervousness live -with reason, have a purpose in life, and work for it; play joyously, strive not for the unattainable, be not an noyed by trifles, aim to attain neither great knowledge nor great riches, be not self-centred, but love the good and thy neighbor as thyself."

NEVER COUNT YOUR CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

NEVER COUNT YOUR CHICKENS. It was the boast of a mangaer of a big firm 'n town that during his term of ruling he had till then never been duped. One day, though, an ignorant-look ing country yokel, seemingly the worse for liquor, whilst passing the si op, reeled suddenly against one of the big panes of glass which made up the shop w'ndow, the action resulting in a broken pane. The manager, hear ing the noise, rushed out, and, seizing the yokel by the neck thrust him into the shop, where he was told he could not leave till he paid for the damage done. Nothing was found on him but a £100-note, and this, he pleaded, be longed to his master. The manager, however, was relent less, and pricing the piane at £5, he returned the yokel £ 95. The latter went on his way, and was seen no more, an 1 the manager to this day is looking for someone to change his £100-note, which was a forged one. In a subway crowd not long ago a New York man was "touched" for his watch. Tlie watch was not intrinsic ...

STRANGE LEGACIES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

STRANGE LEGACIES. Many cases are on record of singu lar bequests. Some years ago in New Orleans there died a wealthy old man who had been noted for his shrewd ness in business matters. One of the bequests in his long will was a hair brush that he had used for many years. This brush he gave to a ne phew .with the proviso that the brush should be kept in the family vault one month out of twelve and in a mahog any box. The acceptance of the brush meant that the nephew was to inherit and enjoy two-thirds of the estate. Margaret Ann Epping, of San Fran cisco, left one thousand pounds each to ten of her nephews about six years ago, but the condition was that her tombstone was to be replaced every two years with a new one on which each nephew in turn "should cause to bo chiselled an appropriate verso sot ting forth his love and affection." Jabez J-Iollister, of Montreal, left his two sons tho use of a corn razor that he-a cutler-had specially ground and fixed up for chiropedic use. "For th...

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 15 July 1914

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his swe.etheart. He is modest. He feels as if the shopman will suspect that he is engaged if he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. "Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. He pretends to examine them critically, 'but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is going to get a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are passed over in review. He selects none. He walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll :do for gentlemen as well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shopman, who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tri^Su: them on bis finger. He never. picks...

A KING AND A COUNTRY MAID. The old King of Wurtemberg, ac companied only by bis dog, takes many long walks alon. the shores of Lake Constance during the summer. Recently he crossed in a little tourist steamer to Rorschach, on the Swiss shore. As a simple traveller he en tered a restaurant and ordered a sandwich.

Deceived. Little Willie was left alone with sister's beau. "Mr. Chumpley," he began presently, "what is a popinjay?" SJister's beau wrinkled his forehead. "Wh-why, a popinjay is a-a rain bird."

Ma said you was a popinjay, and pa said there was no doubt about your being a jay, an' sis ter said there was small hopes of your poppin', an* now you say you ain't a bird at all. That's funny." Two newsboys sat in the gallery while "Hamlet" was being played. It was the first time they had seen ' a play, and they were quivering with excitement. In the last scene, after Hamlet had killed Laertea and the King, the Queen had died of poison, and the "Moody Dane" of a poisoned wound, the younger of the lads could i contain himself no longer. Turning [ to his chum of the streets, in rap turous tones he said: "Gosh, Bill, what a time for selling specials!"
