AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
AVIATOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT. No aviator has ever had so thrilling an experience as luis just been the lot of Mr. Knox Morton, a young amateur, at Long Island, New York. He fell 1,000ft. in n 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 machiue at once tilted and. fell sideways for about 100 feet. The spectators had given up all hope, and were wa'ching, 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...
THE RIGHT TIME TO WED. What the Author of "How to be Happy though Married" Says about It. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 j rush to catch a train, and in their liur 1} they sometimes catch the wrong • train. The rush in reference to mar- ; riage generally comes either from the- ' desperation ot advancing years or from the inexperience o£ youth." i'liat there is a world o£ wisdom jr. the words of tiie Kev. E. J. Hardy| who has been writing on the subject of the right time to marry, few wiii deny, although there will probably be a number of dissentients to his remark that "lew men under thirty years of age are fitted to have the care of *-i wife." But, as he 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-live. Between' these tivo ages is the usual time, and il men put oil much after the last mentioned age, they are likely to get into the habit of celibacy, which, ...
Not Guilty, My Lord! [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
Not Guilty, My Lord! There's a good story being told just now of Mrs. Lloyd George's encoun ter with a Hertfordshire working man who wanted to know what her hus band did with all the money he got as Chancellor of the Exchequer. "Where do all those millions go?" he demanded. "It all goes for insurance and old age pensions, and the Navy, and so on," Airs. Lloyd George replied. But her antagonist had all the fig ures at his finger-ends. So many million, he said, went for old-age pen sions, so many to the Navy, so mauj for insurance, and so on. "That leaves a million not accounted for," he proceeded accusingly. "Now, what about that other million?" "Oh, please believe mo," cried Mrs. Lloyd George distractedly, "1 haven't got it!" Some people place a small bag of unslaked lime inside the piano to keep the damp away. This prevents the wires from rusting, and keeps the piano in good condition.
The Kind Maw. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 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 lie 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 011 the old lady. "But .what have you done with the nice pair of boots I gave you the other day?" she asked suspiciously. "Wlv aren't you wearing them?" "They \yere t0° small for me, lidy,'' a horse." "Put tliem on a horse!" excla.med the old lady. "I didn't knov that horses could wear boots, but it was very kind and thoughtful of vou. Here's lialf-a-crown for you!"
III. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
III. There was quite a record crowd in the drawing-room for Mme. Berriris er's recital. She had kept to her room ever since lier 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 was generally con ceded that she must be very old and "rail. Indeed, Morley Paget had creat ed roars of laughter among his fellow juests by describing, in his best comic style, her arrival on the scene, and iad poked endless fun at her knight it-arms, Garfield., So the audience was 'airly well prepared for the apparition. Even so, an-ill-suppressed titter went : •ound the great drawing-room as Mme. 1 Berringer came through the door be hind the platform and stood among1 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, ...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
II. If a thunderbolt had fallen at the feet of the two young men, Morley Pa,; 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, v sudden call. She wished me to say 'good-bye' to you and to all other in quiring friends." The secretary turned to attend to time, and the two men turned aw^y in opposite directions. &lt; Gone! Miss Joan Sinclair gone! But was she returning? Both men turn id 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 hei\ doubtless, at home. Her address? Oh, Mr. Paget had borrowed a tennis-racket, had he, and wished to return it? Ah, Mr. Garfield wished to thank her for her efficient help with the draw...
THE ROMANCE OF THE HYDRO. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
THE ROMANCE OF THEji HYDRO. |! By A. B. Cooper. .It was difficult to define the quality ( which constituted Joan Sinclair's | charm. Neither Morley Paget nor Sid- , ney Garfield ever stopped to consider why they found her company so desir- : able, why they watched lor her smile, s why they schemed and almost fought , lor the place next to hers on the box- , seat of the coach, ior the daily drive , to some place of interest in the lovci.v , hill-country in which Birkwood Park ] Hydro is situated, and where these , three hitherto complete strangers were ( staying, and Joan Sinclair found lie;- , self actually losing sleep over these two nice-looking men, neither of whom made the least secret 01' liis devotion. With her it was a case of "How happy i could be with either!" If looks were to count for most, un doubtedly Morley Paget had the pul). He was decidedly handsome. Certain ly there was nothing amiss with; Sidney Garfield, although he was not such an - Adonis as Paget. His eyes w&a...
A QUICK MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
A QUICK MARRIAGE. Housewives who find the servant problem a source o£ endless worry may lind some consolation in the tact that in no country is the matter a perfectly simple one. iliss Evelyn Adam, jn "Uehind the Screens" in Japan, describes some of the diiiicul ties of keeping servants in that coun try. The maidservants are untrust worthy, but they are gentle and cheap —jvhile they stay. Unfortunately they j are fond of playing the vanishing trick upon their mistresses. A lady in Tokio had a valuable ser vant of somewhat mature years, who rejoiced in the poetic name of "Oharu Sail"—the Honorable Miss Spring. One day at tea-time .Miss Spring did not appear. The kitchen was deserted, the kettle was cold; half the luncheon-plates lay immersed in a bowl of soapy water, the other half stood on the sink, ready to be put away. The next morning Oharu San reap peared, and demanded the fragment of wages due to her since the begin ning of the month. The lady asked why she was leaving so sudde...
ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
ROUND THE WORLD FOR A WIFE Garbed in the picturesque dre:ss of liis native country, Demetre Daau, a Roumanian, twenty-three years &lt;>£ age, is walking around the world ;n order to win a bride. Incidentally, he also seeks to win a wager o£ £4000 by covering 0300 miles on foot within six years. lie styles himself the "globe-trot ting Roumanian artist-dancer." lie 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. Often he is treated with scant courtesy—a fact which may be due to his inability to speak English. lie confesses he is homesick, but he means to "keep on keeping on," for the sake of the £4000 and...
SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 10 October 1914
SHOCKS CAUSE DUMB TO SPEAK j The recent case of a young woman in England who, after being ileaf and dumb for twenty-one years, is slowly recovering both hearing and speech— the shock of the tragic errl ol" her brother, who drowned himself in the Siour, being regarded as responsible for the miraculous example of shock succeeding where doctors hare tailed —recalls similar instances. Some time ago the narrow r-scape of a boy from drowning off North Shields fish quay had a remarkable sequel. While efforts wer? being made to restore the apparently drowned boy to consciousness l>y means of artificial respiration, a man who had been deprived of speech two years earlier ss the result of an acci dent pushed tLrough 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 an i ne ieil to the ground in a slate of co lapse. Upon recovering he continue 1 10 speak freely, a...

She'll want to sing. ••Leave that to me," said Mrs. -Mid ale ton. consolingly. "I'll tell her that uer voice won't stand the strain two nights running, and that you have pro uused to find singers if she will kind ly consent to accompany the song.}, is that what you want'.'" j •• l'ne very thing," said Garfield, "i can get lots or singers, and I've no doubt Paget will recite—won't you, Paget?" Thac youug man checked his stride towards the open door, the bright sun shine and the lure o£ the tennis courts, to learn the meaning of. this suddei> question. "Won't 1 what?' he saiu.
