GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. Another Outburst by the Cantankerous Crank. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POUTE. Another Outburst-by the Cantankerous . Crank. Girls, you are doubtless very charm ing in your low-necked blouses, short skirts,: and delicious stockings, yet I would fain point out one or two faults which most of you display—and when it comes to display, my cry is: "Les3 stocking and more thoughtfulness." Girls, I don't consider your man ners are as good as those of your mothers. Mother may wear a petti coat, like they used to in the good old days, and grandma three flannel petti coats, because grandma's petticoats, like misfortunes, never come singly, but both of them are polite. Of course, they may have had good be havior spanked into them, but, never theless, it is more than skin deep. It is my misfortune to travel a good deal in trains and 'buses. You, girls, flaunting your fatal beauty, haunt me in those dangerous vehicles, and with that inborn chivalry which lurks in every male bosom, I render you oc casional small services. I open a car riage door for...
Throat Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
Throat Troubles. When doctors talk about the "naso pharyngeal system," they mean the entire mucous membrane that lines the nose and throat, all of which must be iff a healthy condition if you wish to avoid the long list of ailments that begins with the common "cold" and ends with tuberculosis, and includes tonsilitis, influenza, croup, diphtheria, and, last but not least, adenoids. In young children the passages of the nose and throat are very small and very sensitive, and they respond quickly to every change in the child's physical condition. When a disease germ attacks a sensitive mucous membrane, the membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The immediate result is that the child cannot get breath enough to live on through the nasal passages, and begins to breathe through the mouth. If this happens only occasionally the inflammation soon subsides and the mouth-breath ing stops. But if one cold succeed another, as is the case with many children in the winter months, the mu cous membr...
A Surgeon's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
A Surgeon's Revenge. _ Few things vex a doctor more than to be sent for in great haste at an; unreasonable hour, only to find upon arival that little or nothing is the matter with the patient. An eminent English surgeon was called to an "urgent case" of this sort, and he found the patient, who was of great- wealth but small courage, had received a slight wound from a fall. The surgeon's face did not betray his irritation, but he gave his servant or ders : to go. home with all possible haste, , and return with a certain plas: ter. The patient, turning very pale," said anxiously : "I trust, sir, there is no great and immediate danger?" ."Indeed there is," answered the sur geon; "Why, if that fellow does not run- like a racehorse, there is no tell ing but that your wound may heal before he gets back with the plaster."
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. An obedient wife commands her husband. Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but yourself. Obstinacy is a parasite, living eith er on a strong will or on great stu pidity. - . Retire into thyself, and thou wilt blush to find how poor ja stock is there. A man has no more right to say an uncivil thing than to act one—no more right to say a rude thing to an other than to knock him down. Men are like trees; each one must put forth the leaf that is created in him. Education is only like good cul ture it changes the size but not the sort. To know the pains of power we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures we must go to those who are seeking it. The pains of power are real, its pleasures imaginary. In the active and vigorous games and merriment of children there are the most health giving conditions that can be obtained, because they are the wise combination of. exercise and mirth. "Almost" is a dangerous word. It has tripped up many a man who might have ...
DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
DIAMONP MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. The history of the diamond mines is one long romance—catastrophes, skilful robberies, and the speedy real5, sation of colossal fortunes, the an nual output of the mines averaging several millions of pounds sterling. Early in 1867 a traveller named O'Reil ly rested a while at a farm in the Hope Town district. His host pre sently brought to his notice some nice looking stones obtained from the riv er. O'Reilly at once pounced upon the first stone, and took it to Dr. G. Atlierstone, at Grahamstown, where it quickly realised £500. This lucky wayfarer hastened back to the spot, but his searches were unavailing. Two years after, a farmer named Niekirk acquired from a native for £400 of stock a large diamond, which sold in Hope Town for £10,000. This famous gem was christened "Star of South Africa," weighed 83 carats, and esti mated to be worth £25,000. The But ton tein mine was discovered through diamonds being found in the walls of an old native farmhouse. ...
REASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
REASSURANCE. "Before you ask," she calmly spoke— "Dear, listen to this word; You're not the first man I have loved, Nor second—nay, nor third." "Am I the fourth or fifth," he asked In scorn; "or were there more?" She murmured, ''Don't be vexed, sweetheart, "For, as I said 'before, "This love is not my first—but, hark!" He felt her gentle touch— "I promise it will be my last; "Now—can you say as much?" "You are my darling girl," he cried, And bowed his manly head Upon her hand—"My love — my bride!" But-—that was all he said!
UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. To place an umbrella in a rack at a club, or a friend's house is a sign that' it is about to change owners. To see two walking under one um brella, the drippings falling on the male shoulder, is a good sign of an engagement, while if the female shoul der catches the drippings we may safely conclude they are married. An umbrella held in the manner of a golf-club in a main thoroughfare at 1 a.m. is a sign that the glass has risen, but a storm is brewing. An umbrella in "uncle's" window in dicates that someone has had a "rainy" day. The very best thing worth living for is to be of use. The child who is taught this both by precept and ex ample, will never grow up to find time hang heavy on his hands.

The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 6 June 1914
The Bull Didn't Know. A story is told of a great English personage who thought everybody knew or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a hull addressed him in an undertone, and made for him with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. He was a Minister, a man of dignity and of political power. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for office, and he got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the 'bull contem plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an infur iated animal like that roanilng over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the farmer^, "Right? • Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" said the farmer.

[with supplement.] Published Every Saturday. saturday, june 6, 1914. Consequent on the action of the Senate rejecting, for the second time, the Preference to Unionist Abolition Bill, the Prime Minis ter, Mr Cooke, yesterday applied to the Governor-General for a double dissolution. The request was granted, and the elections will probably take place towards the end of July. General regret was felt and expressed when it became.known that our popular railway station master (Mr A. Johnson), had re ceived orders to be in readiness for removal.. Father than that the removal- meant well-merited promotion, no intimation was given as to where he was to be stationed. Whilst regretting: his departure, it is modified by the fact that it is a; step up the ladder of advancement. [We have since' learnt that Mr Johnson's destin ation is Natha'lia.] A lad, James Jones, a son of Mr John Jones, mail contractor, carrier and forwarding agent, Tal bot, met with an accident on Thursday afternoon last.

TO THOSE WHO SCOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 13 June 1914
TO THOSE WHO SCOLD. The most deluded mortal in the world is tlie woman who fancies that much is gained by scolding or whin ing or complaining. She may seem to gain her ends for a while, but if she would stop to con sider, she would soon discover that every day she has greater cause for scolding or whining or complaining, whichever method she adopts, and that as the months roll by an ever increasing amount is required to ac complish the same result. The scolding woman never has things her own way without a vast ex penditure of nervous strength— much more than the object to be gained is worth. The calm woman will appear young when the scolding woman of her age are considered old, and, she will al ways have an influence for good where they have no influence at all.
