"THE OPTIMIST." [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911
"THE OPTIMIST." The toiler lind tears on his cheeks, His children were starving, he Bald; He hadn't had, work for six weeks. And he heartily wished he were dead. The optimist prodded his chest, And guffawed and merrily twirled, And said, "It ls al! for the best In this Jolly old world." Tho widow stood lonely and frail, And said, looking sadly around, "The vessel went down In a gale, And my son and my husband were drowned." The optimist listened with zest, And answered with comforting mirth, "Ha, ha! It ls all for tho best On this merry old earth!" "Come laugh!" he exclaimed, "and you'll find Tho wrinkles will fade from your face." Then up came a motor behind, And left him as flat as a plaice. And the folks whom his fun had de- pressed Their hats In the air gally hurled, And remarked, "It Is all for the best In this Jolly old world!"

Employment for the Blind. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911
Employment for the Blind. An excellent system prevails In Japan In regard to the provision of employment for the blind. They are given tho monopoly of a particular oc- cupation, viz., massage. No person with sight is allowed to engage In massage as n profession, and although some of the blind Japan- ese are in other employments the bulk of them pursue the avocation which the benevolence of their country's laws has made their special preserve. Always elaborately polite, the Jap- anese are especially courteous to their blind neighbors, and tho occupation of a masseur is considered a very honorable ono.

WAR AND ARBITRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911
WAR AND ARBITRATION. To assert that force still rules the world, and that the best way for a nation to secure peace is to he always prepared for war, ls to stand on safe ground. But to draw the inference from these facts that arbitration treat, [cs are useless ls perhaps oxagiierated and unnecessary. In countries where duelling exists, it is customary, in certain eases, be- fore the two opponents artualiv cross swords, to form a "Jury of honor' a select body to examine tho causo of colllliet and to decido whether the qnesikm at issue .iustin.es nu encoun- ter. It is part of Hie "rules nf the nam. " that tho derision or this jury is to bo noeepteV without criticism or comment hy either of the belligerents. Otherwise they hoar the stigma of bullies and braggadocios. If two men really wish to cross swords, need lt be said that no such methods will prevent thom doing so? But a large number of senseless and regrottalilo encounters aro ihus avoid- ed. And why should it not be tho same wit...

Correspondence Golf Club. Dear Sir. I l'ave always been under thc impression that you have a golf club on Deloraine, if so, why not help it along, and ti cat everjbedy alike. I am infoimed that one of thc mcmbirs invited a friend to have a game in a competition, carly in Sep- tember, to which he consented. He lost the half day for the sake of thc club, paid his nomination which was eagei ly accepted by thc club, He was handicapped, and started with his opponent. After his half da'ys play, he turned up to be the winner hut did not receive the medal, on : accru:.; i f if t being a member ci the club.

The Mystery of &nbsp; Barry Ingram &nbsp; BY ANNIE SWAN. &nbsp; Published by arrangement with &nbsp; Cassell and Co. &nbsp; All Rights Reserved. &nbsp; CHAPTER XIV. &nbsp; Still Flying. &nbsp; For a moment Darry could have cursed the folly that had brought him &nbsp; into such a plight. lt would have &nbsp; been easier and simpler to have walked into the kindlier arms of Sergeant &nbsp; Maefmlvnn, and trusted to fortune and limn ni do the rest. Here he could only expect to he treated as a com : moil fugitive from justice; among his own folks surely there would have in.eu some to extend tho hand of pity - ¡uni succour to him. He was quito well aware how gravó- le lie had damaged his case by Impet- uous night, and he could not now expert any protestations of Innocence tu receive the smallest credence. Captured here, he would have to go through the whole Ignominy which ls the lot of the breaker ot l...
OH, WHERE DID FATHER BANK? Many People Would be Rich If They Could Find the Bank That Has Their Money. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 14 October 1911
OH, WHERE DID FATHER BANK? | Many People Would be Rich If They Could Find the Bank That Has Their Money. i Most people regard n good bank as ilie safest place In which to leave their money. They are Quite right In think- ing tills, provided always that they cnn remember the name of the bank. If they should chance to lose their memory, or if they should die. without leaving nny stntement as to tho where- abouts of their fortune,- it might just as well bo at the bottom of the sea. For a bank never publicly discloses thc names of Its clients, or the amounts they have deposited. Jones, whom you know to be a"mil- lionaire, may leave you all his-money, hut, if by some mischance he has ne- glected to mention the name of thc hank where It lies, you will nevor get lt. You may be a millionaire by right, hut you will never be one in fact. The other day there appeared what was almost a piteous advertisement In the Press. It was signed with the name of Andreas Munich, the legal heir of General F...
