BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing is to watch a mau buying an engagement ring for. his sweetheart. He is modest. He fepls as if the shopman will , suspect that he is engaged If he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their demotion. "Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of male rings is laid before him. He pretends to 'examine them critically, but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is goipg to get a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are. passed over in review. He selects none. He walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as . well? I rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers " the shopman, who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries . them on his finger. He never ...

THE INDOMITABLE SCOT. A West Country Scot, who had en gaged in the manufacture of a cer tain description" of goods then recent ly introduced into that part of the country, found it necessary, or con jectured it mignt bo profitable, to establish a permanent connection with some respectable house in London. With this design he packed up a quan-. tity of goods, equipped himself for the journey, and "departed. Upon his arrival he made diligent inquiry as to these who were likely to prove his iiest customers, and accordingly pro ceeded to call upon one of the most opulent drapers, with whom he re solved to establish a regular corre spondence. When Saunders entered the shop in question he found it crowded with customers, and the salesmen all bustling about making sales, and displaying their , wares to prospective purchasers. Saunders waited what lie considered a reason able time; then in a lull of business laid down his pack, his bonnet, and staff upon tnc counter, and inquired for "the h...

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. llany important invention's were merely the result of accident. Ail al chemist, experimenting in eartlis for the making of crucibles, found that ho had invented porcelain. ?A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb .and forefinger, noticed that through it Lh'e. neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci 'dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, aud he conceived the idea of etching, lie drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about tlie drawing. When he removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house.

STRANGE LEGACIES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

STRANGE LEGACIES. Many cases are on record of singu lar bequests. Some years ago in New Orleans there died a wealthy old man who had lieen noted for his shrewd ness in business matters. One of the bequests in his long will was a hair brush that he had used for many years. This brush he gave to a ne phew .with the proviso that the brush sho'uld be kept in the family vault one month out of twelve and in a mahog any box. The acceptance, of the brush "meant that the nephew was to inherit , and enjoy two-thirds of the estate.

DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. The most obvious and appreciable value of the dairy industry to a State is found in the worth of its products (writes the "Farm and Plome"). This includes butter and cheese, the milk uked as- food, and the by-products of the dairy in veal and pork. It does not include the other very important by-produce-the manure, which, if properly conserved and applied to the soil, would reach a large value. Care ful experimentation has shown that .tile excreta of a dairy cow is worth about 4d. per day, computed at the standard valuation of the plant food substances which, they contain. Th<3 worth of the manure is conditional upon the character and amount of the ;based upon higher feeding than some food supplied to the animal, and the current estimates of value may be dairymen practise. This 'by-product is not sold. If the dairying is pro perly done, every possible part of it ?is restored to the soil, not only main taining, but increasing i...

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

CHAPTER XXI. The commotion at Castle O'Doyle when Sheila did not appear can be better imagined, than described. Dear ma expected her at the end of an hour, but knowing Sheila's passion for walking, took no notice until two and even three hours had gone by. Then she gave the alarm and the entire family, including Nanny and the ser vants, got. into a state of uproar. As to The O'Doyle, his voice sounded all over the great house. Every man, wo man and child was sent to search for Miss Danvers, and The O'Doyle aid ed in the hunt, but there \yis no sign of the missing girl. The O'Doyle had the Irishman's irascible temper, and scolded everyone who came near liim. Dearma, however, managed to a cer tain extent to calm him. "Slieila Is tile last girl in the world," she said, "to fall into the river, or sink into a bog, and who on earth would ste 1 her, daddy, for she left her purse with me before she went out, and l.as, I know, not a half penny on her person-nor any ormna ments either."

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 July 1914

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. Many interesting incidents relative to the siege of Ladysmith are record ed in "Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by the late Melton Prior: . "The enemy succeeded in placing thirty-two guns on the heights i:bove the town, and kept up such an inces sant fire that the troops and civilians were soon engaged in digging bomb proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boer guns by their sound, and gave them amusing names. Three of the large ones they called 'Long Tom,' 'Puffing Billv,' and 'Weary Willie.' Then there was 'Silent Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first warning \vc got that it had been fired.- . "In spite of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew 'accustomed to the shelling. One day the Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football' when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no ono was hit, and they went on playing. The Boers were so interested appar ently that the...

He Had Often Heard of Him. It was a contested will case, and one of the witnesses, ill the course of giving his evidence, described the testator minutely. "Now, sir," said the counsel- for the defence, "I suppose we may take it, from the flattering description you have given o£ the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Hi'mi" exclaimed the witness. "He was' nor acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very, carefully ? whenever.1-you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. This prevarication, as counsel thought it, was too much, and he said: "Now, now, don't trifle with the court,.please! How, I ask you, could ySu,' in the name of goodness, de scribe him so minutely if you never saw him or never knew liim?" '"Well," replied the witness, and the smile which overspread -his features extended to the faces of those in court, "you see, I married his wi...

The question of a break in the line had in all likelihood never been broached before. Such heresy hit him hard. "It's not that at all, dad!" The lad's voice rang reproachfully. "Surely you've a better opinion of me! But it's useless to blinK the truth any longer. Commerce doesn't call me. I want a wider outlook-more scope." "More fiddlesticks!"
