INVENTORS' FORTUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
INVENTORS' FORTUNES. The greatest inventions do not al ways bring the larger financial re wards. Holler skates are said to have brought their inventor six hundred thousand pounds, while nearly half a million was realised by the man who first devised bootlaces. The inventor of the safety-pin, who took the idea from a reproduction of a Pompeian fresco, made two million pounds. On the other hand, Charles Bourseul, who discovered and described the principle of the telephone in 1855, died poor. Michaux, the inventor of the bicycle, ended his days in the utmost penury, and Frederic Sauvage, who is credited with the invention of the screw-pro pellor, was imprisoned and died bank rupt and insane.
HOW WOMEN WERE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
HOW WOMEN WERE MADE. According to a Hindu legend, this is the proper origin of woman: — Twashtri, the god Vulcan of '.lie Hindu mythology, created the world. But on his commencing to create wo man he discovered that with man he had exhausted all his creative mater ials, and that not one solid element had been left. Thi3, of course, great ly perplexed Twashtri, aiul caused him to fall into a profound medita tion. When he arose from it he pro ceeded as follows: He took the round ness of the moon, the undulating curves of the serpent, the graceful twist of the creeping plant, the light shivering of the grass blade and the slenderness of the willow, the velvety softness of the flowers, the lightness of the feather, the gentle gaze of the doe, the frolicsomeness of the dancing sunbeam, the tears the cloud, the inconstancy of the wind, the timid ness of the hare, the vanity of the peacock, the hardness of the diamond, the sweetness of honey, the cruelty of the tiger, the heat of the fire,...
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
THE SCOTSMAN'S ADDRESS. | Sir-Joseph Lyons told a good story at the banquet of the Wine and Spir it Trades' Benevolent Society at the Connaught rooms. A card was given to each guest, on which he was to state the amount he was prepared to give to the fund, and in relation to this Sir Joseph told of an Englishman, a Scotsman, and a Jew who met acci dentally aiid became travelling com panions. They were in India, and one day saw a native of high caste pur sued by a savage elephant. All three raised their guns simultaneously and killed the animal. The native, who proved to be a high priest of Buddha, showed his gratitude by asking them to visit his temple, when any wish they might desire would be granted. The Englishman asked for glory, and his wish was freely complied with. The Scotsman said he would like t-j be a multi-millionaire, and was told that he would be made rich beyond the dreams of avarice. On the Jew being asked -what he would like he replied, "I don't want much; you give m...
PETROL DANGERS. Risks That Are Inourred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
PETROL DANGERS. RisKs That Are Inourred by Unwary Owners of Motor Cars. The experienced motorist has prob ably learnt that petrol has many po tential dangers, .and he therefore handles it with a considerable amount of respect. The many newcomers in the field of motoring, however, may not be aware (or they pay insuifi cient heed to the fact) that petrol makes an extremely explosive mix ture with air. It should be fully understood :hal petrol can be ignited in a number of ways. For instance, the lighted end of a cigarette, when it reaches a suffi ciently high temperature, will fire a mixture of petrol and air; a lighted or a glowing match, or even an 01 dinary motor oil-lamp, is a source of danger. A strict rule should be made never to handle petrol, particularly in an enclosed space, -where there is any chance of accidental ignition taking place. Daugers are run also in using petrol for car-cleaning purposes. Such n a terial as waste saturated with petrol is often used quite careless...
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
SIMPLE TESTS FOR MILK. The commonest way of adultering milk is with water, yet it is the easi est to discover without elaborate chemical tests. Good milk should look white, with a yellowish tinge. It should have a pleasant odor, and taste sweet. Bluish milk is poor in fatty matter. Oood milk is a little sticky when stirred, and lathers. If water has been put into it it does not lather. If, when brought almost to the boil ing point, clots appear or adhere to the 'bottom of the pot, it is about to change or sour, and is not fit to drink. If it curdles it certainly is not fresh. as every housewife ought to know. If you wish to be sure that the milk is of the proper richness, take a long needle, see that it is clean and dry, and dip it into the milk, an inch or so below the surface. "Withdraw it, and if the milk be pure a large drop will adhere to the needle and hang there for some time. But if the milk drops from the needle quickly in several small drops it has certainly been adul tera...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
"I wonder what his name is?" specula ted Roger, thoughtfully, a week or two later, by which time he had consider ably improved his acquaintance with his neighbor in the third floor back— to which remark his wife replied, with a half laugh: "Curiosity, thy name is man! We women are grossly libelled in that par ticular; for, really, I haven't felt even a passing desire to lift the mantle of obscurity which he has drawn over his past life." "I, too, am innocent of curiosity in the ordinary sense of the word," ex plained Roger; "it is only that, al though I cannot give chapter and verse for it, I'm sure I've met our neighbor before. His face is perfectly familiar to me, and I seem to recognise certain tones and inflexions of his voice. Yet for my life I can't identify him. i seem very, very near doing it some times, just as one feels in a dream, and then I lose the clue, and all is blank again. It's beginning to haunt me." "Perhaps he was one of the clients of Messrs. Frobishers," sugge...
The Bereaved Widower. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
The Bereaved Widower. Two weavers were heard conver sing. The older of the two remarked that he had never lost a day's work for twenty years except once, and that was when his wife died. "You don't say so!" exclaimed the other, in a tone of surprise. "Yes," replied the old minder; "1 was just getting ready to go to th' factory when th' wife said to me, 'Jack, I do feel bed.' Of course, I ran for th' doctor, but when he came, bless me if she weren't dead." "You'd be much upset then," broke in the younger minder. "I—I were that; i were no joke, I can tell thee, losin' a day's wage." If it happens to be a dull day, don't be dull, too. If the day is inclined that way, there is all the more reason why you should be cheerful.
A Hard Time Of It. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
A Hard Time Of It. A lesson in elementary anatomy had been in progress. But the teacher did not flatter himself that he had made any lasting contribution to the knowledge of his pupllB. "Now, can anybody tell me," said he at last, "what part of the body is the most hardly treated?" Only one youth showed any signs of intelligence, but he was most en thusiastic. "Well, Sammy, you seem to be the only boy who has learnt anything. Tell the class what you know." "The part of the body what has tho rottenest time is the eye." "How is that, Sammy?" "Because all day It Is under the lash, and every night it geta a good hiding."
ENCOURAGE HOSPITALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
ENCOURAGE HOSPITALITY. Encourage your children to be hos pitable from early childhood as far as you can. Let them have little teas and birthday parties and invite their playfellows. It will help them to learn the charming grace of hospita lity and to develop and practise the social manners which will stand them in good stead later in life. Childhood is the best time to acquire the spirit of hospitality, for the chicks are na turally generous-hearted and unself conscious.
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
A TALE OF THE BORDERS. In "Highways anil By-ways in the Border," by the late Andrew Lang and his brother John, the honored name of Percy is linked with a story of defeat. In 1372 the Lord Percy of that day, the English Warden of the Marches, at the head of seven thou sand men, lay encamped not far from the River Tweed. "To scare away from their poor lit tle crops ti e deer and wild cattle that were wont, when night fell, to ravage them, the Scottish country folk of that district used to sound at frequent intervals a primitive kind of drum. To the ends of long poles they fixed what may best be termed huge rat tles, made of dried skins tightly stretched over semi-circular ribs of wood. Inside each • skin they put a few round pebbles. 'When shaken vigorously these rattles would give out a noise quite terrifying to any four-footed animal, especially when heard in the stillness of the night." The clever Scotsmen planned a stampede, and in the pitchy black ness of milnight sent a number o...

THE THIRD FLOOR BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 19 September 1914
THE THIRD FLOOR BACK. At the sound ol the opening of the front door Mary Beauregard put down her sewing and rose hurriedly to her feet, hope in her eyes, which died only too quickly as she sank down again into her chair, picked up her work, and resumed her stitch, stitch, stitch ing with the swift, regular movement of one well skilled in handling needle and thread. • 1 knew it was too early for Roger to come home," she told herself, with a sigh, "unless something unusual had happened. Poor fellow, he is so dauntless in his efforts to get work that it breaks my very heart to see him come back every night, worn out body and soul, only to start the same hopeless fight at dawn next day. Oh! it's the third floor back"—starting to her feet again, and opening tier door to give a light to the dark staircase, at the sound of someone stumbling on the steep, uneven stairs leading to that landing ou which her rooms were situated. The adjoining one had been recently taken by a new lodger, a grim...
