WANDERING CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

WANDERING CHURCH. During the floods in Ohio and the neighbouring States of the Middle | West a wooden church, which had | been washed from its foundations, | was deposited on an island in tho | Ohio River. There was nothing to show where 1 the church had come from or the de- I nomination ot the people who had worshipped in it. It had a belfry with a b3ll weighing about half a ton, and during its curious unpiloted voyage the structure had suffered lit tle damage. The inhabitants of the township in which it landed had had their own church destroyed by the waters. They gladly accepted the gift of the I river, hastened to dig a foundation on a desirable site, and moved the ! church to it. If the original congre- ! gation learns of its whereabouts and i attempts to claim the church some . curious legal entanglements may i arise. . In the meantime, the church is do ing proper duty in housing a congre gation every Sunday, although per haps the congregation might be con sidered somewhat her...

The man himself, who was very bald, was busily en* gaged in filling his window, when a lady entered the shop asking for a bladder of lard. llis wife, who was behind the coun ter, replied: "I'm sorry, but we don't keep It." The lady, however, insisted that she had seen it in the window. The wife, looking to see what it was, exclaimed, indignantly: "Bladder of lard, indeed! That's my husband's bald head."

THE VALUE OF ORGANISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

THE VALUE OF ORGANISATION. Andrew Carnegie, when asked by a number of financiers whether he thought that the difference between one style of organisation and another amounted to much, provided the com pany had an up-to-date plant properly located, said in effect that should iionut great, catastrophe destroy all of 111 si mills but spare his organisation, which had required many years to perfect, he might be inconvenienced temporar ily, but that he could depend upon his organisation to re-establish his busi ness. If, however, Ke should lose his organisation, even If his mills, which wore the best In existence, were left intact, he would not have time nor strength to rehabilitate himself in the business world. Just as we have, for Instance, recently seen it demonstrated .that opposing armies and navies may have exactly the same guns, but that the side which lias behind those guns the men of superior physique, charac ter, intelligence, and skill'will win the battle, so also it lias bee...

Behind the Footlights. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

Behind the Footlights. Some provincial touring companie« make a profit from their audiences ir more ways than one. Such a company was playing "The Broken Vow" In a small town in Eng land. The audience didn't appreciate the licrformance, and eggs, cabbages, and potatoes rained upon the stage with striking persistency. Still the play went on. The hero raved and tore his hair, dodging the bouquets of turnips that were also forced upon him. Finally a gallery auditor, in a par oxysm of rage, hurled a heavy boot, and the actor, thoroughly alarmed started to retreat. "Keep on playing, you fool!" hissed the manager from the wings, as ho hooked In the boot with an umbrella. "Keep on till we get the other one!" "Let me illustrate the difference be tween capital and labor," said a rich man to an impecunious caller. "SUIH pose 1 give you five pounds " "That's capital!" replied the callet as he held out his hand for the money. In a Great Western railway carriage on the way up to London a youth h...

The moment the coach stopped, one of ths outside passengers, who was without an umbrella, rushed Into an Ironmonger's shop, and came out with a gridiron in his hand. All the other outside passengers thought he was mad; but he wrapped himself in a large cloak, which covered his cap and most of his face, and came down to his feet, and seated himself on his m ldiron in the middle of his seat. Ip. a couple of hours It was seen what he meant. While the other passengers were sitting in pools of water from the dripping of the umbrellas, he was sit ting high and dry above the scat on his gridiron; all the water ran under it: and when they got to their destina tion the man on tlie gridiron was as dry as a bone, whilst the other outside passengers were soaked to the skin.

HOW TO BE HAPPY THOUGH NEWLY-WED. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 14 August 1914

HOW TO BE HAPPY THOUGH NEWLY-WED. By Benedict. Hnlf the troubles of life nro caused !>y disappointment, and half the dis appointments result from too rosy ex pectations. "Take tho worst as a matter ot course, and always bo surprised at the hi St!" was tho favorite maxim of a cynic, , who always contrived to re main normally cheerful under tho ::.i.:;t adverse clrrurrsiunces. And though this theory may round c-:!d to hearts which throb with youth's passionate hope, it lays the seeds of greater human contentment than the (iicory of always expecting the liest ;<i happen. In the courtship days everything Angelina did was more v underfill, more clever, more brilliant Ihnn anything ever done by nny girl before.
