At laBt it came, and the doctor ex amined his tongue critically,, felt his pulse, inquired as to the symptoms of his illness, and then looked wise. « Taking a pad from the table, he wrote a prescription, calling for bread pills, and distilled water, or some thing of that sort.

In his book, "The Cruise of the Snark," Jack London says that during the building of the boat he had an agreement with hi® friend Roscoe that the last-named was to learn navigation, and Mr. London was to furnish books and instruments; then, later on at sea, Roscoe was to teach his friend what he had learn ed "Roscoe was delighted. But when we got out to sea, and he began to practise the holy rite, while I looked on admirably, a change, subtle but distinctive, marked his bearing. When he 'shot the sun' at noon the glow of achievement wrapped him In lambent flame. He became filled with incom municable Information. My mild suggestion that it was about time I began to learn met with no hearty response and no oiler on his part to help me. "The act of finding where he was on the face of the waters became a rjte, and he felt himself a superior be ing to the rest of us, who knew not this rite, and were dependent on him fo...

"You appear to be in a merry hu mor,'' replied the Prussian. "I must request you, however, not to talk such nonsense." "There is no nonsense about it; I am perfectly serious," was the reply. After arguing together in thiB Btrain for about ten minutes, the Prussian said angrily, "I am tired of being hum bugged with such nonsense," and growing very excited, he shouted, "Come to-morrow morning at nine o'clock in the wood near by, with second, and I will give you an answer with a bullet."

Made Up in Quantity. - An old woman, who had, grown grey and Vent in the service of- the family who had raised her from childhood,, was not gifted with an over-abundance of grey matter, and her mistakes and queer ideas furnished much amuse ment to those about her. One day a Yorkshire pudding that si e had made for dinner did not seem quite as it should be, and the mistress called Eunice and said, "What is the matter with the pudding, Eunice? Did you make it in the usual way?" "Yesm'm," said Eunice. "How many eggs did you put in it?" "Six." "Six!" exclaimed the mistress; "why, the recipe only calls for four!" "Yesm'm, I know," said Eunice; "but they werent very good, BO I put in more of 'em." In Korea widows never re-marry. Even though they had been married only a month, they must not take a second husband.
SUNSHINE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 July 1914
SUNSHINE AT HOME. Something I own that wealth cannot buy, And not offered for s;.lo on the mart; Something for which thd great often sigh With an unhidden void in the heart; Something possessed by one little spot In a corner I know on earth's loam, Waiting for me in a neat; cosy cot, 'TIb a sweet, loving smile in my » home. When all the world is dreary and cold, And the clouds darkly hang o'er the way; Friendship and honor purchased with gold, And a world seems to win to be tray; Still one fond thought thro' shadows will shine, As I back to that humble cot roam, Feeling as rich as a wealth-laden mine, With a sweet, loving smile in my home. When that bright scone shall vanish and fade Into visions of heaven beyond And earth grow dim in death's misty shade, With the forms so loving and fond Yet will remain for ever in mind, ^"hough afar in the heaven's broad dome, T" o sweet, happy face, loving and kind, With the smile that awaits me at home.

A Friend Indeedl Brown and Green were bosom friends, always ready to give each oth er a helping hand. The other day the GreenB called at the home of the Browns. Brown, not expecting the call, was absent from the domestic camp. "Oh, Mr. Green," remarked Mrs. Brown, during the conversation, "I want to ask you something. I was looking through my- husband's desk this afternoon, and found some of the queerest tickets you ever saw. One was marked 'Mudhorse, 8 to 1/ an other was marked 'Getaway, 10 to 1,' and so on like that. Whatever do you suppose they refer to?" "That's an easy one, Mrs. Brown," was the smooth rejoinder of Green, "Your husband is probably making a study of archaeology." "Archaeology!" was the wondering rejoinder of Mrs. Brown. "Do you really think so? How very interest ing!" "Yes," responded Brother Green, "those queer-looking, tickets you found are undoubtedly relics of a lost race."

WONDERFUL CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 July 1914
WONDERFUL CLOCK. Twenty thousand minute pieces of wood entered into the construction of the elaborately-ornamented Notre Dame Cathedral clock made by Mr. James Calway, of Skowhegan, Maine. This three-storey clock, which is finely, carved, stands 7ft. 10in. in height. It took Mr. Calway six long years to complete it, working night after night when his household was sleeping. Mr. Calway followed his own plans, which are entirely original. In the uppe.r storey six folding doors open every ten minutes and the apos tles appear, marching in time to an air played by a large music box con trolled by the clock, each one -bow ing before the Saviour as they pass, except the fourth one, which repre sents Peter, who turns his back on the Saviour, and the evil spirit cornea out from the upper storey of the clock and blows a trumpet in honor of Peter. The second storey is in the form of a mansion with double doors In front, which also open every ten minutes. Lazarus appears at he rich man's door a...
CHINESE BOOK-KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 29 July 1914
CHINESE BOOK-KEEPING. The habit of keeping a daily debit and credit account with Heaven finds great favor among many inhabitants of China. At the end of each day, a pious Chinaman will take his hook, and en ter therein his good and bad deeds in a-business-like manner. I Periodically, he calculates his mis deeds qnd compares them with the | good deeds, and by so doing he can tell how he stands with Heaven. If the misdeeds outbalance the good deeds, he fasts and makes sacrifices. On the other hand, if he has a few, good deeds to spare, he will indulge in "Shamsa" (a native drink not un like a mixture of whisky and paraffin), and in doing so he does many things which he would not have done in a sober state. By doing this he bal ances his account and begins a fresh period; a period generally lasts the length of a "moon."

PART OF THE BUSINESS. | The members of the Independent Order o£ Enthusiastic Good Fellows were operating on Mr. Timberwheel a few weeks ago, putting him through the operations supposel to be neces sary to convert the ordinary citizen into an Enthusiastic Good Fellow. They were almost through with the initiation when some kind of an ex plosion at the store over which the hall was situated blew the building into the middle of the street, and In terfered with the ceremonies. Ready hands set to work and ex tricated the people from the debris. Fortunately no one was very much hurt, but after a census had been taken Mr. Timberwheel was found to be mi&fling. A search was instituted, and before long he was found in an adjoining yard, where the force of the explosion had landed him. He aat in a lodge-room chair, and hiB eyes were atlll blindfolded. "Why on earth didn't you take that thing off your eyes and get out of the chair when the explosion occurred?" asked one of the Enthusiast...
