WHAT A WOMAN CAN D00. She can do more in a minute than a man can do in an hour, and get Salong first-rate; and no two men can do that. She can sharpen a lead pencill if you give her plenty of time and plenty of pencils. She can safely stick fifty pins in her dress whilie a man is getting one under his thumb nail. She can appreciate a kiss from lher husband seventy-flivec years after the marriage ceremnony is performed. She can come to a conclulslon with out the slightcst trouble of reasoning on it: anti no sane man can do that. She can dlance all night In a pair of shoes two sizes too small for her, andi enjoy every minute of tile timl. She can walk half the night with a snqualling baby in her arms without once expressing tile desire of murder ing thile infant. She is cool as a culcumber in half a dozen tight dresses andti skirts, while a man wll sweat anti fume anti growl in one loose shirt. She can talk as sweet as peachles anl cream to the wonlnan sile hates, while two men woull ...

Caught. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 July 1914

Caught. A workman claimed compensation for the loss of his left eye, as tile re sult of an explosion In tile factory where he worked. There was no doubt about the ex plosion, and there was no doubt that the workman's eye had been injured; but the doctors claimed he could see out of it, while he stoutly declared that the sight was utterly destroyeId. The judge heard tile evidence on both sides. Then, suending the work man from the court, he said: "Get a blackboard, and write a sen tence on it with green chalk. Also get a pair of spectacles, with ordinary clear gIass for the left eye, and with red glass for the right." When all was ready, the workman was brought back, and instructed how to put the queer glasses on. Then the judge said to him. "Look at that blackboard, and see if you can readt what is written on it." The man read the sentence without hesitation, whereupon the judge said to him sternly: "Your case is dlismissed. You must have read that sentence with your left eye, for t...

DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 July 1914

DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. A school medillcal officer has nade the interesting announcement that. in his experience, those school-boys who are in the habit of sucking the end of their pens and pencils are almost al ways boys who, when ba:lhies. were kept constantly suppi!ed with a dummy or comforter. The habit formed in babyhood has stuck. He adds that, as far as he is able to ascertain, pen and pencil chewing boys usually turn into inveterate smok ers at a later age. In the great ma Jor-ty of cases heavy smokers really picked up the hnb!t in the cradle, by actc.iring a craving for holding some thlling in their mouths to suck at. It is this craving, too, that, accord ing to some psychologists, accounts for the feminine Ilkling for sweets, far nmore than for a fondness for sweet thir~s in themselves. If it is possible to guess of a heavy smoker that his mother kept hintm quiet on a dummy, there are other adult habits that tell something of the baby day:s of their possessors. It is p...

A WAR SPECIAL'S VIGIL. Some of the most uncomfortable hours of my life Isaid Mr. Don.ahoe. the war correspondent) were passed in a Chinese inn on the road from Autung to Fenghwangebeng. Soon after I fell asleep I was awak ened by feeling a he:avy weight across my legs. It was a Chlnese muleteer, who had endeavored to make himself comfortable by using me as a pil low. A vigorous movement on my part landed him on the earthen floor, where he arrived muttering impreca tions, as I suppose. I was hardly prepared for what fol lowed. Searching amongst his tatter ed bags, he drew out a broad-bladed knife, the edge of which, with his eyes fixed on me, he proceeded to test withll his thumb. lIe may not have intended any harm, but I felt it was my turn to make a counter demonstration. Drawing my revolver, I loaded it os tentatiously under his very nose. Then I heldl It ready cocked. The Chinese viewed these proceed ings in apparently unmoved calm. iHe still sat on Gle floor watching me with his...
