WORLD-WIDE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. ;» ■ - Some very strange bolicfs are re tarded in a recent book by Mr. Edgar Thurston on "Omens and Superstitions in Southern India." Every animal swuns to have some suporstition connected with it. Thus the sight of a jackal is very lucky for anyone going on an errand, while that of a hare bodes ill to a traveller, and that of a cobra or a sattlesnako should causo the post ponement of a project. Pigeons aro believed, on account of their habit of standing on one leg, to lead to poverty. If a house is infested by mosquitoes, or tho furnituro or bedding by bugs, tho names, of a hundred villages or towns should be written oh a piecb of " paper,'l^which is fastened to tho celling or bed post, and relief from tho pests will bo instantaneous.

Not Worth While. It is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on vitality. It-is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but which decidedly pre? vent them from doing their best. Rheumatism, gout; lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles are complaintB which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused 'by retention of uric and biliary poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their.functions. Warner's Safe Cure is a kidney and liver remedy, which has been successful in so many cases that sufferers from any of the complaints ...

THE HIGHEST TALENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914

THE HIGHEST TALENT. The Friends, or Quakers, as they are commonly called, attach a pecu liar significance to the word weight. To say of a man in their communi ties that he has, or that he lacks, weight, is to express a kind of final j judgment upon him. This usage o£ ' the word involves a recognition of a certain authority which attaches to the judgment and example of some people, and which the example and judgment of other people do not carry with them. There are a great many men and women who are exemplary and have charming gifts, but who do not make their mark on their asso ciates. They interest and entertain, but they do not deeply influence those about them. It is a pleasure to meet them, and agreeable things are al ways said about them; but they nei ther stimulate nor mould opinion. In such cases the cliavm generally re sides in temperament, while the source of influence is character. There are a great many delightful talkers, for instance, who speak out of the mood of the mom...

R°B»R I've been handling tea since 1 was a boy—of course 1 always say my own's the best—perhaps it is and perhaps it isn't—anyhow it's the best for me to sell. Putting aside personal interests, I find a lot of pleasure in selling tea, and when I can't sell my own, 1 don't mind selling any of the packed teas—the thing that annoys me most in business is for a customer to buy groceries from me and tea from somebody else I'm not going to blow about the quality of my own tea, but I'D swear it isn't possible for any house-to-house canvasser to sell tea eqsial to Robur, for the same money—he couldn't do it, and make enough to keep himself in shoe leather, let alone tucker—1 suppose you wonder when theic's not much profit on "Robur" why 1 sell it— well, you see it's like this, if I didn't sell it my customers might go to another shop and the chances are they'd buy their other groceries there too, and I'd rather sell an article for no profit than lose a customer. Talking about Robur, there's...

Real Cruelty. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914

Real Cruelty. A young married woman went home to her mother and sobbingly declared she just couldn't be happy with her husband again. "I wouldn't have minded it so much, mother," she sob bed, "if Charlie had answered me back when I scolded him, bu—bu—but he did something worse!" Her mother was duly shocked at this. "Mercy, my dear child!" she exclaimed. "He struck you then?" "No,"worse than that, mother!" and the young wife sobbed afresh. "Tell me at once!" indignantly de manded her mother. "He—he just yawned." The truth may cost many a pany to utter, strict integrity may have to give up many a coveted gain,, the courage of principle may forfeit the goodwill so highly prized or the posi tion so eminently desirable; but upon the scale of years they will lead their adherents to a position of honor and happiness compared with which all that had been sacrificed seems utterly trivial.

FORTUNE-TELLING WITH DOMINOES. What the Chief Pieces Mean. Lucky and Unlucky Numbers. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914

FORTUNE-TELLING WITH DOMINOES. What the Chief Pieces Mean. Lucky and Unlucky Numbers. Fortune-telling by cards or by tea cups is a favorite pastime for after noon tea-parties—but there is another method of fortune-telling with which few are acquainted—i.e., fortune-tell ing by dominoes. This unique method is not only great fun at pleasant family gatherings, but you can amuse yourself, for ever so long by telling your own fortune when you are quite alone. Some of the chief rules for domino fortune-telling are given here. If you can tell fortunes with the aid of dominoes, you need never be dull. The rules are very simple.. All you have to do is to commit them to memory, and this is not a difficult matter at all. Each domino has its special mean ing, and by comparing the dominoes selected with each other, and exercis ing a little calculation—and, shall we say, divination—also in regard to their sequence, the fortunes are told. First turn all the dominoes out on the table face downwards...
