In this con- nection army experts more than double the period in tho Scriptural Injunc- tions, nnd hnvn decided that nfter every three days' marching the march- ers should hnve a full day's rest for recuperation. To keep an army col- umn longer In heavy marching order is to weaken the physical forces of the soldiers.

A LONG, STRONG PULL. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 7 October 1911
A LONG, STRONG PULL. A unique but successful Civil Ser- vice examination occurred (luring the American Civil War. On a certnln occasion the Confederates (says "The Locomotive") were much in need of a railway engine In order to operate their supply system. It was In 18G4; they had not the means to buy one, and their only hope was to capture one. A band of 100 men was selected from Lee's army, and placed under the command of a tall Georgian, who had been foreman of a stone-quarry, and was more or less skilled In the uso of derricks and the like. He took , his men up into Maryland, and they tore up a section of the Baltimore and Ohio railway tracks, flagged tho first train, and, with nothing save plenty I of rope, those 100 men rnrrled the locomotive E2 miles over hills, across I streams, through bogs and woods, un- til they struck a lino built by tho Con. federac.y. Then they ran the engine ' down to Virginia. When the president I of tho Baltimore and Ohio railway ¡heard of the exploi...

On unpacking she found that the parcel contained what looked like an ordinary lump ot clay. The sub- ject offering no more Interest for the time being, the spherical lump was placed on tho drawing-room mantel 1 piece. Over a year afterwards, hy i some lucky accident, let lt be said, someone knocked the clay ball to tho I ground, whence lt rebounded and split In two halves, revealing a white, flesh I like substance which subsequently turned out to be an ordinary white peeled potato. This latter again split In half. and. lo! out rolled a peculiar hard substance! Not knowing what lt was, Mr. Itiche submitted what look- ed l...

CO-OPERATIVE COMMUNITY AMONG PLANTS AND ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 7 October 1911
CO-OPERATIVE COMMUNITY AMONG PLANTS AND ANIMALS. Ever since the marvellous social systems ot bees and ants have been studied, tho greatest attention has been paid to tile habits of plants nnd animals as they exist side by side In partnership and communities, and comparisons aro being drawn with hu- man Institutions. Put broadly, lt ls generally found that In the plant and animal worin phenomena similar, to monarchies and democracies, to oligarchy, republican- ism, socialism, and anarchy are to be found. Rut the great feature, so far ns the struggle for life ls concerned, is what ls known as commensallsm, a word not very familiar to the un- scientific public, hut containing, nevertheless, the seed-point of most of the political theories. We know that, in the plant, ani- mal, and human worlds parasites of one kind or another are cdmmon enough. We know that we find com- bination and co-operation for self protection among tho lower and high- er species equally. But wo are not so familia...

He began to put heart into his work. Letters to lady clients ho would begin "Dearest Mad- am," and sometimes ho would conclude with the words "Yours affectionate- ly," or "With fondest love." These little mistakes wore gracious- ly overlooked, but when young Swiffle developed a habit ot scrawling a row of crosses at the foot of every letter he typed, Tootleboom had to tell bini to look nround for another appoint- ment. So Swiffle looked around, and a week later announced that he had secured another and moro lucrative berth. To fill his placo Toot decided to try a g...
