A TWENTY-SIX HOURS' SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 4 October 1912

A TWENTY-SIX HOURS' SPEECH. A Bill was pending in the Legisla ture of British Columbia which, if passed, would drive many settlers from their lands. The Legislature was within a day and a half of its final adjournment, and the vote was about to be taken. ' At this juncture, Mr. De Cosmos, a member, rose to address the body. It was ten o'clock in the morning, and the members thought he would finish in an hour or two. Next morning, when the sun flooded the hall with the light of day, the orator was still, without faltering, pouring forth his torrent of words. As the clock struck twelve, the limit prescribed by law, for the session arrived, and the Legis lature stood adjourned sine die. The brave De Cosmos stopped in the middle of a sentence, and fell faint ing in his seat. He had spoken stand ing on his feet for twenty-six hours !i His eyes were bleared and red, and his lips were cracked and running blood. He was nearly dead, but he had prevented the Bill from becoming law, and had sa...

Spelt Differently. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 4 October 1912

Spelt Differently. The new doctor, having had much to say about his cricketing abilities, was given a trial in the local team, but was out first ball to a swift and deadly 'yorker,' which he was ob viously afraid to face. 'A demon bowler that, sir,' re marked the man whose turn it was to go in next. Oh, not at all! said the doctor, loftily. 'Quite ordinary, I assume you. I could have batted him till Dooms day, but I've got an attack of trauma tic neurasthenia this afternoon, and am badly off my play.' The next player said nothing, but. when he too returned to the pavilion, a victim to the first ball he received, the doctor said to him: 'What on earth were you doing, man, to let a simple ball like that beat you? You ought to have knocked it out of the field.' 'Yes, I know, sir; but I am, not very well myself to-day.' 'Indeed! What are you suffering from?' 'The same complaint as you, sir; but we call it 'blue funk' in this dis trict.' ? ? . Rich Banker: So you want to be my son-in-law...

HEALTH NOTES. Nervous Depression and Nervous Debility. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 4 October 1912

HEALTH NOTES. j By Dr. Andrew Wilson. Nervous Depression and Nervous Debility. If it be true of the social world that the poor are always with us and always will be with us, it is no less true of the world ,of medical science that the nervous invalid will invari ably represent in himself an extreme ly common type of patient who de sires, like every other ailing person, to find relief from his woes. It is however, a matter of some importance to distinguish between what may be called real illness and^ serious physi cal trouble and those ailments which, if not exactly born oE the imagination, are certainly very largely fed by the emotions and abnormal ideas of those who exhibit them. I have been led to select the subject of nervous debil ity and depression for treatment by reason of the fact that a considerable number of readers have asked that an article should be written dealing with this topic. It is an interesting point that these requests came from persons who themselves are not a...

PREHISTORIC RELICS. Alabaster Figure Weighing 90 Tons. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 4 October 1912

PREHISTORIC RELICS. Alabaster Figure Weighing 90 Tons. Another sphinx, weighing 90 tons, and carved from a single block of ala baster, has been unearthed at a point between the world-famous Colossi', on the water-logged plains of Memphis, in Egypt. For hundreds'- of years it has lain in a recumbent position, buried beneath the sands on the road to Sakkareh. To-day it is half exposed to view, and next year it is to be raised to a vertical position above the water line. This newlj'-found sphinx was betrayed in its hiding place by its tail, which Mr. Mackay, one of the students of the British school in Egypt, discovered about a year ago. This year, when the water on the plain sifbsided, the ^complete figure was excavated, and was found to measure 14ft. in height and 26ft. in length. Alabaster being a rock foreign to the neighborhood, the new sphinx ranks as the largest that has ever been transported. The figure bears ho in scription, but is considered by Pro fessor Flinders Petrie (the...

AS TO FAIRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 4 October 1912

AS TO FAIRIES. J Do I believe in fairies? No, I don't! I And what is more, from this time on I won't ! And this my reason is — one summer day I met a little fairy oh my way Down by the sparkling splendors of the sea; And I confess she looked right 'good to me. The glint of gold lay in her golden hair, And, oh, her face was more than passing fair! Her smile was such that saints the most secure Could never have withstood its witch ing lure; And in her eyes — well, there was that therein That set a trap for me, and I fell in! Head over heels I fell— ^oh, what a splash! — For all my fancied strength and slap and dash, I took a tumble then and there, at last, That for sheer fall was never quite surpassed. Her look was so dqmure, so childlike — well, Well, I, old man of Experience, just fell. I bought her cakes and candies, flow ers and fudge; For weeks I served her as her unfail ing drudge; I took her with her mother ride on ride - In costly motors o'er the country side; Her faithful cav...
