BULGARIAN PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 3 March 1914
BULGARIAN PROVERES. Before God you may say, "I cannot,"-but not before men. Strangers forgive: parents forget. When the cloth is woven the loom goes to the garret. Better the child' should weep than the m.other of the child. The lame man laughs at the man with no legs at all. Crooked chimneys send -the .smoke up straight. If a man is doomed to live the medicine to cure him will be found.

THE POWER OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 3 March 1914
THE POWER OF LIFE. Inertia is a property oi matter; but growth is a law of life. Each lifeless thingr f, all this vast universe will stay where it is placed until something moves it, and re main as it is until something changes it; but every living thing, while moulded by forces without, is also shaped by powers within. The inorganic world is static; the organic world is progressive. Moved ulon by the forces of vitality, dead matter feels within it the throb and thrill of life, and responds to "laws beyond its own domain. This is the pe>rpetual miracle ot Nature. In the tree that lifts its tons of ea'-th and water in the air, and transforms them into sap and leaf and fruit; in the flower that roots itself in unfeeling soil, and turns it into petals of beauty and of grace; in the bird that eats matter and sings music; in the man who consumes carbon and oxygen and .thinks thoughts that soar amohg the stars and explores the long reaches of eter nitv,'the law is the same. In each and...

MUTUAL ASSISTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 3 March 1914
SMUGTUAL ASSISTANCE. We arn ail tired of the so-called woman's quicstion. . It is idle to talk about the siuperority of one sex and the inferiority of the other. The relations between men and w~omen shoiid be like th-1 relations betwccen the hart .and thie lu:ngs. Each organ is entirely" differmn~t from the th oher, and yet each ovw&lt; -s its existence and its usefuiness to the mutual :help they. receive from each othir. At a debating society one hor' gets on to his hind legs and announces that. tlho le:.rt'-is the superior organ, because if a. man's heart .tops bcating the man dies. Then som2ona else, cqually fatuoun, de livers. a, windy speech to the effect that thle lungs are uipcrior, because if a man's lungs .are *iseascd he dies. And all' lhe time. clever pecple like you and me dear reader, can see thr.t there can be no qiies tion of upecrior and inferior organs! it is a matter of difference cn the same plane, :vand happiness and usefIlness can only be attiined by mut...

MAN'S LORDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 3 March 1914
MAN'S LORDSHIP. The great act of God Was to implant an: intelligence in man which enables him, if that intelligence is rightly used, to rgcri late, control, and emplloy the forces ef 'Nture. In the w\or.:Ls of thle Psalmist the Creator made iman to have ldominion over all the wo:k-sotl ::reation and put all tlings under his feet. The history ot man durbimr the Christia; era ] roves that the Hebrew ipoet had a very 1ractical coin-option of .m1an's sovereignty over Nature. T?y man s ilitelligence the great pest.lenItial epidemics that were once jblievcd to be the stern visitation of thc wrath of God have been .abolished; the lightning haR been har l:essed; great rivers, like the Nile once legarded as terrible .and relentless divinities licnt npon the destruction of mani, have been' made the servants of his Oveltare. No one can consider the wonderful record which man has made in employing the ir resistible forces of Nature for his benefit without having the imagination fired by a ision...

TIHES SEEDS OF CnREATNESS. Because the smiles we shed, ianud the .tinv acts of love we do in our little corhers, do hot shake thle earth and cheer millions, let us not be disheartened.

GLASSES FOR NEAR VISION. As we grow older, and get to, sdy, .45, thl eye sbecome long-sighted.
