Handsome Apology. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
Handsome Apology. An Irishman who had offended against the strictest rule of Parlia ment that members should always ad dress the House only through "Mr. speaker," and not directly, tendered an apology with a pungent flavor. "GentIemen," he began, on rising, and had been stopped Instantly by cries of "Order" from political op ponents. For a moment he paused, thenr re sumed: "Mr. Speaker, sir, I recog nlse that in beginning my speech with the word 'gentleman' I made a mis take, for which I am deeply sorry, and I promise that if the House will for glve me I will endeavor' not to repeat the error!"
What He Feared. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
W/hat He Feared. It is one of the oddlties of human nature that people are always Iookln. as far away as possible from th', ground they stand upon, not only for their best chance of distinction, bil or the dangers which they believe are most besetting. A lion-tamer although he would ven ture into the cages of the most fero cious beasts, apparently having no fear of them, had a dreadful fear of getting bronchitis. One day, after he had entered with perfect composure a cage containing two half-starved bears and a panther, he shook his head gravely as he came out. "Yes, sir," he said to a gentleman who stood near, "this will end badly for me some day." "You are afraid those ferocious ani mals will devour you. then?" "The animals? Pshaw! You don't thinkl I'm afraid of them? Not at all. But those cages, sir, are such terrible places for draughts."'
Then He Set to. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914

One man in partlicular was working as If he were a chorus man in a play. Just go ing through the motions and pretend ing to dig a ditch The foreman came along and spoke to him. "Don't be afraid," he said, with rich sarcasm. "Leau on th' shovel now an' then. If it breaks I'II pay for it!"
THE WORLD'S BEST BEGGAR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
THE WORLD'S BEST BEGGAR. The "world's best beggar" is nor. a peer of the realm, the Hon. Sydney Holland becoming Viscount Knutafor I upon the death of his father a short time ago. The new peer is well known for his work in connection with the London Hospital, and his ingenious devices to raise contributions for that institution have earned him the title of the "world's best beggar." Once he offered a guinea to anyon' who would give him a line to fill a hoarding, and so gained a cheap ad vertisement for the six weeks that the competition lasted. Another of h!q ruses was to acknowledge subscrlp tions in Agony columns of the news papers, -and add, "Six accidents as hour." In the course of his begging crusades he has acquired an insight into the art of advertising such as few pro fessional experts coold hope to beat. He finds that a letter to the newspap ers must either end in "a sob or a smile." "A letter signed by three mil-. ifonaires, a bishop, and a society lady,' he says, "is not ...

BLIND MAN AS BARRISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
BLIND MAN AS BARRlISTER. One of those rare men who show to what a large extent the handicap of blindness may be overcome by a deter mined sufferer is a barrister wo!I known in the Chancery Court, who ha:; practised in London for years. In his youth he suffered from short sight, and he was told, as so many people ar that "short sight is strong sight." In this belief he went on until after hard work at Oxford, and in Londlon, when reading for the Bar, he lost his sight completely. "Tle judges all know me," he told an interviewer recently, "and treat me with great consideration. I memorise my cases, but Judges do not call upon me to recite long extracts fromn caseu to which I may refer. With the assist ancg of my memory and of my clerk, I am able to give opinions andl to carry out thi orther work which falls to the' lot of a barrister without ver' much troulble."
HOW TO GET SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
HOW TO GET SLEEP. "Insomnia is a penalty the increas ing strain of modern life throws upon our brains," said a physician to an in terviewer recently. "The man who works with his muscles and lives In the open air is rarely a victim of sleep lessness. The essentials for a g~od night's rest are mental repose, a requisite amount of muscular fatigue, comfortable body heat, and plenty of ventilation. The most difficult to secure is lessened brain activity. An excellent plan is to take a half-hour's brisk walk junst before bedtime, followed by a hot bath and a rub down, and then a cup of warm milk and a biscuit or two as one gets into bed. If, in addition, the mind be focussed on some pleasant but not exciting topic, a night's rest is anssurel to all but the most chronic sufferer. "The. type in which the sleaper sud denly wakes an bour or so after having fallen asleep usually means that more outdoor muscular exercise is requir ed."

MEDICAL FEES IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 August 1914
MEDICAL FEES IN JAPAN. Many humane doctors In Europe give their services to poor patients for a merely nominal fee, or even none at all. In Japan, however, such a pro ceeding is regarded not as generosity but duty, and no doctor in the "Land of Cherry Blossom" expects to receive any fee from a patient In poor circunr stances. There is a proverb among the medical fraternity of Japan, "When the twin enemies-poverty and die ease-invade a home, then he who takes aught from that home, even if it be given him, is a robber." "Often," recently remarked a lecturer on lfre in Japan, "a doctor will not only give his time and medicine free to the sut rerer, but he will also give him money to tide over his dire necessities. Every physician is his own dispenser, and there are very few apothecaries' shops in the empire. When even a rich man clls in a doctor he, does not expDect that he will receive a bill for medical .ervices; In fact, no such thing as a doctor's bill is known in Japan, alt though...
