Peter's Precaution, At one of the big seaside resorts a, yong lady had occasion to complail of a bathing machine attendant, an old fellow, who, In the hurry of cleanl ing up, wouId sometimes burst In upon her without knocking. One morning, after this had happen ed for the third or fourth time, the young lady took the old fellow to task. "Look here, Peter," she said, "I must Insist on your knocking before you enter. It hasn't happened yet, but it might very well happen that you'd come In on me when I was all un dressed." Peter, with a chuckle, hastened to reassure the ycung lady upon this point.

Selling Old Guns. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
Selling Old Guns. I.1 iHuge profits and a spice of dan ger are the chief attractions of gun-running. A market for the arms and ammnunition that important countries discard as obsolete can be found in partly-civilised districts and aniongst rebel societies. Rus slan Terrorist committees, Indian hill tribes, and Arabs are the chief buyers of old guns. A few years ago a Londlon firm were offering for sale a million single-shot rifles which one of the smaller European States had dis carded. In order to get them right out of. their country and thus away fromn revolutionaries, the State had sacrificed them for a mere song. The London company bought them, and was ready to dis pose of them at a slight profit. Pathans on the Indian slopes woull dearly have loved to get hold of pome of these rifles, for a hill na tive will risk his life creeping into the British frontier posts by night in order to steal Tommy's Cfirearn?ms. Immense profit is to be made, therefore, by smuggling guns into forbi...
Everybody's Friend. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
Everybody's Friend. Jack Podger was the most obliging man that ever lived. His services were given gratia to all applicants. He could mend a clock, repair a puncture, drown a kitten, paper a wall, and, in fact, perform any operation known to mortal man. In consequence, Jack's services were in constant demand. A week or two ago, after cobbling a neighbor's boots, sweeping the vic ar's chimney, and writing a testimo nfal for his charwoman's nephew, he retired to rest. He was awakened by a terrific bang at his front door, and immediately rushed to the window. "What's the matter?" he bawled ir riltalbly. "You'll excuse me for troubling you at this time of night," came the reply, "but the fact is, our baby is so very cross, and we would like you to come and pacify him. He always laughs when he sees your funny nose."

MAKING THE MOST OF ONE'S TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
MAKING tHE MOST OF ONE'S TIME. WRhen a well-known writer was once asked how he found time in the midst of all his public work to think out aIndl compose so many books he explaine. that he contrised to do so much by never doing too much at a time, anI during the time he was writing hi. gave his whole attention to what he was doing. This is one of the secrets of mak ing either work or study easy and ac complishing the best results. One of the greatest educators of the day says: When you have a lesson to learn put your whole thought and attention on it and learn it as quick ly as you can. Do not dilly-daily over it or waste anny time, but learn ti make the most of every moment o€ your study time and learn quickly. Much time may be saved in this way, and the knowledge that one may learn in a few- minutes what he former ly had been spending an hour upon is as valuable a lesson as any other he could learn. The same theory holds good with work, for the quicker it is turned off, and at the ...

The Solution. A minister, a doctor, and a lavwyer were dining at a lady's. The lady complained that her manservant broke a great deal of china. Her guests then advised her what to do. "Fire him!' said the lawyer. But the lady had had him for many years, and he was old, and she liked him. "Take his breakages out of his wages," said the doctor.
