DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

DID YOU? Diu you give him a lin.' He's a brother of map, And bearing about all the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road, Or did you jugi. let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means—just the clasp of a hand. When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? . Did you ask what it was—wny the quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When we have a special -work to do we first "clear tlie decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his counter ot everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which nre on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clean...

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unmatched crocodiles ut-1 ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid la averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that It can be heard when the eggs are burled under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. A. Lamborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the West African coast. He heard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of ahout ISin. All the young crocodiles hatched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1S09 Dr. Voeltzkow noticed that unhatchcd Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused tho baby crocodiles to produce this sound "with the month closed, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this way they inform the female crocodile when she visits the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes tho a...

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some peopleto the questions they are asked. It is said by some to be an "extra gift," tor, no matter where they are or how quick tile ques tion is given, they" are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting:— "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from—the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also t'j; dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy inspir a...

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-glvcerine were brought down by rail from Derbend md deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment a Greek named Darios, opened one of tlu> drums for some reason best~ S^jwri to himself, and "decanted" a'^mall quantity of the dangerous limiid into a long thill glass used for mixing vod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there entered a workman named Borko •pitch, who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for bis loud, resonant laugh ter. The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten tori...
