Stopping to Count It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
Stopping to Count It. If the Sassenach, has deep-rooted convictions regarding the "meanness' o£ the Scot, tne Scot has himself to blame, lor he seems to delight in no thing more than poking fun at this al leged characteristic of his race, or at any rate at a canny quality which is often confused with meanness. Arm.-Sergeant "Sandy" Lawrence, of "C" (Dumbarton) Company of the 9th A. and S. Highlanders, who Is a bailie of the historic burgh, tells an amus ing story of the time when he won the Queen's Prize in 1882. Sandy expected that hia £250 would be presented two days later, along with the other prizes, by the Duches3 of Teck, and received with surprise the advice that he should proceed forthwith to the cashier. He went, and finding he had to deai with a genial old compatriot, he in quired why he was not to receive his money from the hands of her Royal Highness. "They used to do that," he said. "Why don't they do it now?" A twinkle came into the old man's eyes as he replied:— "Succ...

The Kind Man. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
The Kind Maw. Mr. Roosevelt tells about a beggar who was given a pair of boots by an old lady. The boots were too small for him, so' he pawned them and backed a horse with the proceeds. 'The horse came in last, but that really has nothing to do with the story. Some days later, encouraged by his former success, the beggar paid an other call on the old lady. "But what have you done with lhe nice pair of boots I gave you the other day?" she asked suspiciously. "Why aren't you wearing them?" "They were too small for me, lidy,-' the man replied, "so I—I put them on a horse." "Put them on a horse!" excla.med the old lady. . "I didn't know that horses could wear boots, . but It was very kind and thoughtful o£ vou. Here's half-a-crown for you!"

A' Rare Chance. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
A' Rare Chance. Having tried unsuccessfully various highly-recommended recipes for dis lodging selfish passengers from covet ed seats, the woman who swung from a strap in front of the sandy man tried talking' at him to her husband. As a peroration to her harangue, she said, impressively:— "If you, James, should ever be bad mannered enough to sit down while there was a woman in the car left standing, I would never speak to you again as long as I live." The sandy man looked up then. "Lucky fellow," he said. "Not many of us could purchase peace at that price."
AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. No aviator has ever had so thrilling an experience as has just been the lot of Mr. Knox Morton, a young amateur, at Long. Island, New Yorlc. He fell 1,000£t. in a series of perilous dives and lurches, and yet succeeded In landing, or rather was lucky enough to land, without more than a comparatively slight shaking; and was able to walk to his hotel. He was up in a biplane when the steering wire jammed and then snap ped. The machine at once tilted and fell sideways for about 100 feet. The spectators had given up all hope, and were watching, transfixed with horror. Suddenly the machine rode into a cur rent of wind and righted itself for a few seconds. It then began circling around, quite uncontrollable, and after a fall of an other 100ft. once more steadied itself. For a minute the aeroplane was even, but a third time it began to fall at a perilous angle. When within quite a short distance of the ground the machine once again righted itself and bumped down into...

Homeless. Most single men are homeless, and Less happy than they- could be; Most married men, we understand, Are home less than they Bhould be. No good can come from a policy of hiding the truth. Be sure your Bins will And you out; but there is no need to have sins. If you begin by hiding Bmall things you will develop Coward ice and dishonesty in almost every thing; you do.
Not a Tiring Method. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
Not a Tiring Method. He tapped on the back door of a suburban home and usked for some thing to eat. The good housewife re sponded that she would feed him pro vided he was willing to earn the meal by clearing out the gutter. The tramp agreed, and when he had eaten his way through several sand wiches to a feeling of happiness, the housewife came out with a reliable looking hoe. "Vou needn't have gone to that trouble, madam," said the weary one, s'vsing up the farm implement; "I never use a hoe in cleaning out a gut ter." _ , , "Never use a hoe!" said the wo man, with a wondering expression. "What do you use, then—a shovel?" "No, madam," replied the tramp, starling for the back gate, "my me thod is to pray for rain." I .
WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. A curious optical illusion is some times seen as a motor-car passes, the wheels of the moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop or even turn backward. In an investigation re ported to the Royal Society, Professor A. Mallock mounted a cardboard disc with spokes on a flywheel, and when Hi is was revolved so rapidly that 1..2 spokes- could not be seen or easily followed by the eye, and a slight me chanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac tion of a second. Shocks having this effect were given in many ways, such as in the contact of the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that tlie appearances depend on the speed ol rotation, the brightness of illumin ation, and to some degree on the na ture of the shock. The explanation was offered that the shock produces a momentary loss or variation of sen sation. This var...
AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
AH, THE POWER OF A SINGLE CACE. Sir. Koon Kan was in a greatly per turbed state ol mind. He was running for a train and feared he was late. In an agony of suspense and mental anguish,- he labored on with what speed he might while burdened down with, heavy despair. \Vhile he was thus suffering and making liis suffering most noticeable to the casual obsorver, he suddenly saw a face—a placid, common face; but it bore a message of courage and hope for him. It made him ashamed, instantly, that he was perturbed or an guished in spirit over so small a thing •as the prospect of missing a train. . His features relaxed; his mouth shut like a steel trap whose spring has sud denly been released. Calm entered his spirit; his pace slackened. The face he had seen was that of the station clock, and it told him he had ten minutes in which to find his seat in his train.

in. There was quite a record crowd in the drawing-room for Mme. Berrinp er's recital. She had kept to her room ever since her arrival, and nobody greatly wondered at this, for seeing that a large proportion of her prospec tive audience were not on the planet when she was an operatic star of the first magnitude, it waB generally con' ceded that she must be very old and frail. Indeed, Morley Paget had creat ed roars of laughter among his fellow guests by describing, In his best comic style, her arrival on the scene, anil had poked endless fun at her kniglit at-arms, Garfield. So the audience was fairly well prepared for the apparition. Even so, an ill-suppressed titter went round the great drawing-room as Mme. Berringer came through the door be hind the platform and stood among the palms and flowers, bowing and curtsy ing. But she could play. Oh, yes, when she removed her ' gloves her white hands moved very sweetly over the keys. Garfield and Paget sat right oppo site the player, and ...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
II. If a thunderbolt had fallen at the feet of the two young men, Morley Pa,j et and Sidney Garfield, they could not have been more surprised, although, probably, they would have been more hurt. "Gone!" they exclaimed, in a duet • of consternation. "When?" "Before breakfast this morning. \ sudden call. She wished me to say 'good-bye' to you and to all other in quiring friends." The secretary turned to attend to the telephone, which was going off like an alarm-clock doing a spurt against time, and the two men turned away in opposite directions. Gone! Miss Joan Sinclair gone! But " was she returning? Both men turnjd back surreptitiously and separately to ask this Question. But the secretary . could give no information on the sub ject. She could only recall precedents. She had never known Miss Sinclair to return under three or four months. Her father and brother needed her, doubtless, at home. Hier address? Oh, Mr. Paget had borrowed a tennis-racket, had he, and Wished to return it? Ah...
THE ROMANCE OF THE HYDRO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
THE ROMANCE OF THE HYDRO. By A. B. Cooper. It was diflicult to define the quality which constituted Joan Sinclair's ! charm. Neither Morley Paget nor Sid- j ney Garfield ever stopped to consider why they l'ound her company so desir- ! able, why tliey watched lor her smile, why they schemed and almost lought lor the place next to hers on the box seat of the coach, lor the daily drive to some place of interest in the lovely hill-country in which Birkwood Par1; Hydro is situated, and where these three hitherto complete strangers were staying, and Joan Sinclair found her self actually losing sleep over these two nice-looking men, neither of whom made the least secret of his devotion. I With her it was a case of "How happy I i could be with either!" If looks were to count for most, u;:- | doubtedly Morley Paget had. the pull. He was decidedly handsome. Certain- j ly there was nothing amiss with Sidney Garfield, although he was not such an Adonis as iJaget. His eyes were his best feature,...

Incidentally, he also seeks to win a wager of £4000 by covering G300 miles on foot within six years. lie styles himself the "globe-trot ting Roumanian artist-dancer." ile fought in the Balkan War, and is proud of the fact. After he has com pleted the arduous task he has set himself, he wishes to claim a bri le among the hills of Roumania and set tle down in London—with his wife and the £4000. His life at present is not quite so pleasant as his dreams of the future. Although he claims to be expert in the use of live languages, he is com pelled to sell post-cards as a means of livelihood.

He confesses he is homesick, but he means to "keep on keeping on," for the sake of the £4000 and the bride to-...
THE RIGHT TIME TO WED. What the Author of "How to be Happy though Married" Says about It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
THE RIGHT TIME TO WED. What the Author of "How to be Happy though Married" Says about It. "People rush into matrimony as they rush to patch a train, and in their hur ry they sometimes catch the wrong train The rush in relerence to mar riage generally comes either from the desperation ol advancing'years.or from the inexperience of youth." That there is a world o£ wisdom m the words oi the Kevt> E. J. Hardj, wl-o has been writing on the subject of" the right time to marry, few wiU deny, although there will probably be a number of dissentients to his remark that "few men under thirty years of age are iitted to ha\ke the care of a wife." But, as lie points out, much depends on the man. ••Some men," he says, "are more cap able of taking upon themselves the duties of marriage at twenty-live than others are at thirty-five. Between these two ages is the usual time, and if men put off much after the last mentioned age, they are likely to get into the habit of celibacy, which, like all oth...
SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 10 October 1914
SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK The recent case of a young woman in England who, after being deaf and dumb for twenty-one years, is slowly recovering both hearing and speech— the shock of the tragic eri'l of her brother, who drowned himself in the Siour, being regarded as responsible for the miraculous example of shock succeeding where doctors have tailed —recalls similar instances. Some time ago the narrow escape of a boy from drowning off North Shields fish quay had a remarkable sequel. While efforts weri being made to restore the apparently drowned boy to consciousness I'y means of artificial respiration, a man who had been deprived of speech two years earlier as the result of an acci dent pushed through the crowd mere ly out of curiosity. As soon as he saw the prostrate boy, although not in any way related to him, tne sight gave him such a shock that his speech suddenly returned ani ne ioil to the ground in a slate of coiiapse. Upon recovering lie continue 1 to speak freely, and lias...
