AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. Many good stories were told by TV Macnamara, M.P., recently, when lie gave some of his "Reminiscences and Reflections" at the Heme Hill Congre gational Church, with Sir Albert Spi cer in the chair. Beginning with the barrack-room at Montreal, ho was alternately serious and humorous. On the one nnd only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother-went to ask the schoolmaster i£ he could leave early to go out to tea. "And this," he re marked sorrowfully, "I have always regarded as hard lines." Half the failures In life, he said, are those of people who (thought they could do something else better. This was ills first reflection. And ao, al though he wished to foe a soldier, lie did his best as a pupil teacher. At Exeter ho was taught singing by a lame man who waved his stick threat eningly when his pupils did not grasp a melody quickly. This lent Itself to Dr. Macnamara's first witticism, for this, lie thought, must be the meaning of the "staff notation." lie...

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. T' e antics played by lightning are sometimes almost beyond belief. A common trick is that of undressing Its victims. In 1898 two girls and an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine during a storm. A lightning flash struck the woman and killed her oil the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, even their boots being torn from their feet. Otherwise they were safe and sound —and astonished. In 1855 a man was struck by lip' ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could be found afterwards of his clothes was a shirt-sleeve, a few other shreds, and some pieces of his hob-nailed boots. Ten minutes after he was struck ho regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how he happened to be naked. Such instances have ibeen recorded again and again. In one case a man and two oxen were Btruck simultan eously, and. all three killed. The man was found stripped to the skin, and his boots had be...

VERY TOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914

VERY TOUGH. Here is a story from "Law and Laughter." Lord Mansfield was try ing a case in which an old man named Elm, who was upwards of eighty, gave his evidence with remarkable clearness. It turned out that he had been through life an early riser, and had led a singularly temperate life. The Chief Justice, in a tone of ap proval, congratulated him, and made the remark that without such habits longevity was never attained. The next witness proved to be this old man's brother, who was more ancient than himself. Ho also 'bore himself well in the witness-box, and the Chief Justice rushed to the conclusion that he was equally exemplary in his .hab its. But the old man declined the compliment. He said he liked to lie in bed' late .and clinched the matter by adding that he could not remem ber a night when he had not gone to bed without being more or less drunk. The barrister, who was on his feet, caught at this admission, and ex claimed: "Ah, my lord, this old man's case supports the the...

HOW THE ANT SALUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914

HOW THE ANT SALUTES. Ants have long been ikn(own for their excessive industry, but from a curious communication which has just appeared they seem to have surpass ed all other insects by organising an elaborate system of signalling. Professor Bugnion, who has recent ly investigated the habits of the white ant, reports that the "soldiers" of that species give warnings or encourag ing signals by knocking with their Jaws upon dry leaves, thereby emit ting a crackling sound. Placing some of these ants on a big: plate and cov ering it with paper, he found that the "soldiers" among the ants responded to his taps with a rustling, crackling sound. Moreover, apart from this audible signalling, there appears to 'be Bome inaudible form of signal, for-the pro fessor asserts that the "soldier" ants salute the worker ants. To do this, "the insect stands firm ly on its legs with the head raised and the body slightly oblique, and shakes itself for an instant with a convulsive shudder. This seemB to ...

BRAINS IN THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 4 July 1914

BRAINS IN THE FEET. The necessity for combining intelli gence with muscles and nerves ,'n athletics is emphasised by Mr. E. W. Hjertberg, coach ot the Swedish Olym pic team, in "Athletics in Theory uinl Practice." All those who train with the Idea of winning prizes on the ath letic track, he says, should always _ remember that the brain plays an im portant part in training as well as in contests. He points out that iu the old days it was usually held to be enough to truin the body, and the more drastic the training the more likely success was thought to be. Nowadays it it necessary, it a man has to win success on the track, that he should have "'brains in his feet," as the saying goes. • Mr. Hjertberg points out that many contests have been lost by good athletes just be cause they did not think quickly or accurately enough. To-day, in training, brain and nerves are given even more attention than the body. Furthermore, an athlete is allowed to think for himself and is al lowed to eat...

GOOD CHEER. There is a great physician who long ago began To clear away the troubles that come to pester man; 'Tis true he is old-fashioned, but many a grievous ill That puzzles other doctors would yield to this one's skill; He makes no heavy charges, and lie is always near To serve you if you want him; his full name is Good Cheer. his practice should 'be world-wide, and daily it should grow; He serves in summer weather and when the wild winds blow; His night-bell is in order, he answers every call, He gives no bitter doses and tortures not at all.
