Misunderstood. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
Misunderstood. A gentleman asked ft Iriend of his to go round to his house and hear his daughter sing. .tvt'ter she had finished singing, the proud father said to his friend, "Well, luw do you like it; what do you think to her execution: The.Friend: I'm in favor of it. "It's no use talking," said Smithers, dejectedly. "It's impossible to make a woman understand even the first principles of finance." "What's the matter now?" inquired his friend. "Matter!" said Smithers. "Why, when I was away yesterday the baby swallowed a penny. And what does my wife do but call in a doctor and pay him five shillings for getting the penny back." Miss Pretty: "I don't see how you manage to whistle through your fin gers that way. I could never do it in the world." Mr. Admirer (wishing to compliment her dollcate little hands): "No, Miss Pretty; If you should try it your whole hand should slip into your mouth."
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. It is an ancient belief that the nose indicates ancestry. We speak about (he aris'tocratic nose with Its high Lridge and the plebeian nose of the toiler. Certainly, in a great many cases, race can be distinguished by tiie nose. The Hebrew could hardly be confused" with the typical negro nose. The highly-arched nose is sup posed to indicate tendency to rule, and the flattened nose shows servil ity. There are several classes of noses, if we are to take the word of physi ognor ists. The Roman nose indicates executive ability. Its owner is the aggressive person, the conqueror. Portraits show that the ancient war ri rs had this type of nose. The Ro mans were trained especially for deeds 01 valor. The modern owner of such a nose will achieve success, be a leader, perhaps not in a battle for bioocl, but in business or profes sional life. The woman with this 11 se may btain social leadership if s'- chooses that rather than some ether line of achievement. The Grec...
SUNSHINE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
SUNSHINE AT HOME. Something I own that wealth cannot buy, And not offered for sale on the mart; Something for which the great often sigh With an unhidden void in the heart; Something possessed by one little spot In a corner I know on earth's loam. Waiting for me in a neat, cosy cot, 'Tis a sweet, loving smile in my home. When all the world is dreary and cold," And the clouds darkly hang o'er the way; Friendship and honor purchased with gold, And a world seems to win to be tray; Still one fond thought thro' shadows will shine, As I back to that humble t;ot roam, Feeling as rich as a wealth-laden, mine, With a sweet, loving smile in ray home. When that bright scene shall vanish and fade Into visions of heaven beyond And earth grow dim in death's misty shade, With the forms so loving and fond Vet will remain for ever in mind. Though afar in the heaven's broad dome, T' e sweet, happy face, loving and kind, With the smile that awaits me at home.
A FORGOTTEN PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
A FORGOTTEN PAST. By H. J. BICKLE. The Coronation Theatre was pack ed from stalls to gallery with a vast audience whose absorbed attention seemed fixed almost breathlessly upon the stage. A .big scene was In pro gress, a scene handled with fine dra matic skill, a situation that thrilled the house. It was the first night of a new play, the first appearance of a new actress, and both were creating a wonderful impression. And now, in this tense, dramatic moment, when the woman on the stage, a tragic figure, with pale face and haunting eyes, stood battling with a crisis in her life, the picture that she made lived in the memory long after. At the end of the last act the cur tain was lifted again and again; ap plause, long sustained, echoed through the ti:!l(lii.p; an extraordinary scene of enthusiasm prevailed. She came in answer to that clamor ous call and bowed her thanks many times-Iris Wolde, the new dramatic star, a new queen of the stage, who hud conquered and entered into her kin...
SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. If a discovery by a German woman chemist fulfils expectations tlie vic tors in the battles of the future will bo those armies that manage to stay awake. She has invented a narcotic powder which, on exploding, produces a gas that will render large bodies of troops unconscious. Those near the spot where the powder explodes will not recover consciousness for eight or ten hours. Those on the outer ring of its quarer-mile zone of action will bo so dazed for an hour or so as to be practically useless. The powder will be Tired from shrap nel shells which explode in the air. It is being tested by the Prussian War Ministry, and it is rumored that sev eral other Powers, including Britain, have tried to acquire the invention. Shells of this sort have been sought after by gunnery experts for years. The only other war secret of the sort in actual use is the smoke shell adopt ed last year by Japan. When a smoke shell bursts it emits a vast cloud of oily black vapor which ...
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. One day Nasir-el-dln aBcended the pulpit of the mosque, and thus ad dressed the congregation: "Oh, true believers! do you know what I am going to say to you?" '"No," responded the congregation. "Well, then," said he, "there ia no use of my wasting my time on such tin ignorant set." And so saying, he came down from rhe pulpit. He went to preach a second time, md asked the congregation: "Oh, true 'believers, do you know what I am going to say to you?" "We know," replied the audience.. "Then it is no use of my telling you," said Nasir-el-din, and again he descended from the pulpit. When he came next to preach, and asked his usual question, the congre gation, resolved to have a trial of his powers, answered: "Some of us know, and some of us do n t know." "O!" said Nasir-el-din, "let those who know tell those who do not know, uid I shall be spared the trouble of preaching," and again he came down from the pulpit.
SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. "To travel hopefully Is better than to arrive; and the true success is la fa r." These words, written by Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, hang above the desk of Mr. H. Gordon Selfridge, head of the enormous store in Oxford street, and they provide the keynote of character of the man, who, starting ufe as a shop-sweeper, made such good use of his opportunities that by the time he was thirty he was partner in the Marshall Field Store in Chicago-a store which has earned joint fortunes for its owners amount ing to over £100,000,000. -Mr. Selfridge is a man who believes in maxims, and he has framed a num ber for his own guidance. They cer tainly point the way to success for the young business man. Here are a few of his favorite ones: - "The cult of thoroughness is one of the strongest factors in success." "If an assistant has received in structions to perform a certain task lie should try to And even a better way than that he has been told." "Imagination should prove one o...
THE HAPPY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
THE HAPPY MAN. Two men sat in the lobby of an hotel the other night, arguing vocifer ously, while a third man smoking a long and costly cigar, listened to the argument -with a calm, comfortable, serene air. The argument was about happiness. The men clailned, for different rea sons, that it was impossible to be per fectly happy-or, as one of tliem put it: "No fallible human being is capable of so forgetting life's trials and tribu lations, or so withdrawing, so to say, from his defective mortal entity, as to become completely possessed, even for a moment, with a sense of perfect happiness." The speaker turned to the man who was smoking the long, expensive cigar so comfortably. "Don't you agree to that, sir?" he asked. The other flicked off his ash, with a chuckle. "Gentlemen," he said, "I am perfect ly happy now." "What!" cried the first speaker. "You mean to say you are perfectly happy-enrapt in the present moment -oblivious of all the troubles of the universe? Perfectly happy-come ...

THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 23 July 1914
THE MILLENNIUM. When the last hobble skirt is for gotten, And tlie last new fad has been tried: When the pannier fashion lias faded, And the "hipless" craze has died, We shall rest, and faith, wa shall need it Be at peace for a season or two, Till the next freak of folly arises To torture our souls anew. And those that survive shall be happy, They shall fling away pounds of hair; They shall sit all day without aching, At ease in a rocking chair; They shall wear their own faceB and figures, They shall walk as far as they please, And be able to cross a puddle Without sprawling on hands and knees. And few o£ the men will praise them, And none will admire the si?ht; For no one will dress for fashion, And no one foy man's delight; But each for her own sweet comfort, And each in her own sweet way, Shall wear the thing that Bhe wishes, But the gods will weep that day.

BILLS OF FARE OF A STARVING I ENGLAND. | (By Regiii:ilil Jt. Buckley), There is an engaging fallacy that an industrious and abstemious lil'o can always pay its way.
