THE CATS OF THE COCOS ISLANDS [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
THE CATS OF THE COCOS ISLANDS Until a few years ago not a rat was seen in the Cocos Islands. Then a ship was wrecked off the islands and rats swam ashore. They increased at such a rate that they became a nuis- ance and caused great loss by spoiling the buds of the cocoanut trees. The King of the Cocos Islands therefore endeavoured to exterminate the rodents, and imported cats. But the cats did not do their work well. The trouble of catching the rats was apparently too much for them, and finding a deli- cious shellfish on the shores which they liked much better they were within a short time become large and wild and in fact a great nuisance, so that now the islanders have not only the trouble of the rats, but also of the cats. Shoeless he climbed the stairway opened the door of the room, entered and closed it after him without being &nbsp; detected. Just as he was about to get into bed his wife, half-aroused from her slumber turned and sleepily said: "Is that you Fido?" The h...

BIG FORTUNES WHICH MAY BE YOURS. How to Become as Rich as Rothschild. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
BIG FORTUNES WHICH MAY BE YOURS. How to Become as Rich as Rothschild. There ls no doubt that a fortune, and probably a large one, awaits the man who shall solve certain problems. Surgery, for instance, bas made won- derful strides of late years, and its M lied art of dentistry bas become almost an exact science; but, though the den- tist can furnish the mouth with new and wonderfully efficient Instruments of mastication, yet the surgeon hns hitherto entirely failed to replace the worn-out organs of digestion. He can remove, wholly or in part, almost every organ of the body, but he can do very little townrds their artificial replace- ment. It ls said that Mr. Rockefeller has offered half a million dollars to anyone who will supply him with a new digestive apparatus, but up to the present we bave not heard that any. one has drawn the cash.

The Use of Chivalry. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
The Use of Chivalry. Murk Twain was a firm believer In the national movement for Booti roads, and had many a tale to tell about the Incredible bad roads ot some dis- tricts. "I once had thirty miles," so Mark Twain began, "to go by Btage In Mis- sissippi. The roads were terrible, for lt was early spring. The passengers consisted ot five men and three wo- men-three large women, swathed in shawls and veils, who kept to them- selves, talking in low tones on the rear seat. "Well, wo hadn't gone a mlle before tho stage got stuck two feet in the black mud. Down jumped every man of us, and for ten minutes we tugged and jerked and pulled till we got the stage out of the hole. "We had hardly got our breath back when the stage got stuck again, and once more we had to strain our very hearts out to release her. "In covering fifteen miles we stuck eight times; and In going the whole thirty we lifted the old Btago out of the mud seventeen times by actual count. "We fire male passengers were wet, ...
HOW HE TRICKED THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
I HOW HE TRICKED THE COW. ; ! A lady missionary relates the follow I lng Incident ot Chinese shrewdness. She lived for a time near the town of Chla-ting, in the province of Szechuan. . The region is rocky and precipitous, .1 the Bucred mountain of O-meishan, the ; site of mamy temples, rising in the j immediate neighborhood. "To the pasture-lands nt the foot of the mountain, Just outside the city wnlls, the mission coolie led, and watched from morn till night, our cow and calf. Little cows those are, small- er than the thoroughbred Jersey, which give, when at their best, only two quarts of milk a day. Ofttimes has our supply for breakfast been but a cupful. To obtain even this the calf is an all-important factor, for without lt the cow gives not a drop of milk. It ls not an uncommon sight to seo a year-old calf running alongside its mother. "One late October day tho coolie was lazily lounging on the grass, but half watching in his cnroless manner our cow and calf. Suddenly realising...

The young man had spoken lp hard, even tones, but now, as lie paused on tiloso last words, there was a slight break lu Iiis volee, a touch ol' almost mirüinu-imis emotion that was, how- ever, iiislautly i egressed. The luau ujinu whom he had almost furivi! his presence glanced at Ililli with old blue eyes, a thoughtful frown ousting ii shadow over his worn, sun-blackened features.

ARTISTS' ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
I ARTISTS' ERRORS. In a noted picture exhibited not ' so lons ago the artist, well known for i his ability to "hold up the mirror to ' nature," nevertheless made a curious i error, which he would not have com- mitted bad he taken the trouble to ac. I quaint himself with certain habits of . the benst ho portrayed in that picture. A tiger is shown slaking Its thirst nt a stream. The artist does not show much more than the head of the beast, nnd lt IB life-size; but he made tho blunder of burying the mouth of the creature far below the surface of tho water, making lt drink as ono may soe a horse any day drinking at a trough, and not lapping up the liquid like a cat, ns, of course, a tiger would. Another example, shown at the same exhibition as the picture of the tiger, displayed a dove with outstretched wings. A student of anitnal mechan- ism looking at that picture remarked that lt was very pretty and poetical in idea, hut that by no possibility would a bird thus constructed be able t...
