ECCENTRIC MI'LIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

ECCENTRIC MI'.LIONAIRE* What was probably one of the mi raerous eccentricities of Mr. Francis A. Ogden, the multi-millionaire re cluse, who diet! recently, is causing his relatives considerable trouble, for they cannot find a will or deeds of his enormous property. Besides property of groat-value in ' Chicago, he owned rich lands in Wis. consin, Kansas. Georgia, Washington, and several other States, and a moder ate estimate of the value of hlB es tate is £25,000,000. Mr. Ogden lived for many years in nn hotel at Madison, Wisconsin, and the walls of his room were covered with advertising chromos, clippings from newspapers and calendars. He had a self-prescribed schedule of ab stemiousness, only allowing himself 1/10 per day for food. As he owned the hotel in which ho lived he could do as he liked. Before leaving about a year ago for Texas, where ho died, he had a tall bronze shaft erected in the Madison Cemetery, at the foot of which he In tended to be buried. So far the Bearch by re...

DRESSED LYING DOWN [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

DRESSED LYING DOWN Illusions are born to be destroyed, and last night another one received a death-blow; (saya tho "Dally Ex press" of January 7). Mr. Loudon Macqueen Douglas, tho president of tho Scottish Society, in a Jecturo In Edinburgh on "The Wearing of tho Kilt," said that the tartan was not Scottish in its origin at all. "TJie kilt emerged from a confu sion of different types of dress," he said. "Tho ancient dress of Scotland, particularly in tho northern parts of tho country, was the brcacan felle, or kilted plaid,, which*consisted of some seven to twelve yards of tartan sewn up tho middle so as to form a plaid of double width, varying from four to six yards long by two yards wide. A portion of this length was laid on the ground with tho belt under it, the lower and middle portion being then plaited so as to form a kilt, leav ing a flap at either side. "Tho Highlander lay down upon this, crossed the right flap, and next placed the left flap over it, and then buckled his bel...

LITERARY CENTENARY. Exactly a century ago was publish ed anonymously "The Wavorley Nov* els," a work of Action which was to take captive the whole reading world and to inaugurate a long series of un exampled successes in that special de partment of literature. Begun in 1805 and thrown aside for some years. It was rediscovered in a happy moment In 1813 while Its author was search ing his desk for somo Ashing tackle. Early in 4814 the first portion was ; Bhown to Constable, who offered £700 for the copyright—an offer whioh Scott declared was too largo if the work should provo unsuccessful and | too small In the event of its success. , Eventually ho and the publfsher agreed to divide the profits of the first edition. Tho Arst impression consisted of 1,000 copies, tho whole of which dis appeared within Ave weeks of publi cation.

Willing to Oblige. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Willing to Oblige. Ono of our regular contributors who has gone away for a winter holiday sends us the follow inu bright story from the south of Prance: Brilliant sunshine made tho gar den-party enjoyable. Th? garden real ly was a garden. and, though most of the guests clustered on the lawn, one or two wiser people sauntered around the {lower-bordered paths. Two of these were seated in a quiet part of the garden enjoying the scent of the flowers and the solitude. They were engaged. Presently a mutual friend sauntered down the path and noticed them. "You seem to be enjoying your selves ovor here all alone?' said he. "We are," said the girl, and, being a girl, managed to look pleased to see him. "Won't you join us?" "Sorry, I can't," answered the friend, "not being a clergyman. But I'll go and find one if you wish!"

That Never Chanaes. Mrs. Rebecca Clarke, who has just had motor-car funeral, in England, after living to the ripe old age of one hundred and ten, was once talking to us about the many changes she had seen In the course of her long. life. "There's one thing that has never changed," she remarked. ' "What Is that?' she was asked. "It Etui rains every washing-day!" was the prompt reply.
