A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. The marriage ceremony as seen in America is often very quaint, accord ing to our stalder ideas and traditions. In his "Wonder Book" the Reverend L. B.

Hearing the wheels, Father Bates went to the door, to see coming up the walk a buxom lass of two hundred pounds or so, followed ,by a very little man. With a giggle. she announced: "We've come to be married, par son, haven't we, Bill?" An energetic nudge succeeded in eliciting the desired affirmation from "Bill." The parson examined the li cense and proceeded to business. "Please join your right hands," he said. "Dearly beloved, you are gath ered here for the purpose of holy ma trimony. Do you-" But he was here interrupted by the bride. "Say, parson, before you go any far t'...

The "Fruits" of Ambition. "If you are ambitious and want to get on in life, don't wait for your opportunity-make it." So counselled Mr. Kalestlck to young Kabbage. whom he had just appoint ed to the management of a green grocery store. All that day the youth pondered the advice. and he still remembered it when his eye suddenly caught an item in the sporting columns of his favor ite paper: "Clodville Football Club re quires dates for December." Two minutes later Kabbage was busy with pen. ink and paper, and In ten more minutes he was proudly con ning the following note to the Clod. ville secretary: "Dear Sir,-I beg to inform you that we have a choice lot of dates in stock. Enclose one as a sample, and will be pleased to supply any quantity at twopence a pound. or four pounds for sevenpence ha'penny."

Obvious. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Obvious. Mr. Tom Mann, whose imprisonment is still being warmly discussed, told a Coventry audience that he was ani agitator. There was an obviousness about the remark that recalls Mr. Zangwill's story of the hunchback on board a steamer who became very friendly with a stranger with very pronounced features. The latter, in a burst of contidence, alhispered: "I am a Jew." "Confidence for confidence," replled the first man--"lI am a hunchback!' Few ministers were better loved by their flock than Bishop Ieese. of Sa. vannab. It is told of him that when he was rector of a parish he saw one of his parishioners talking very emphati. cally to his son. Dr. Reese called out: "Halloa, Tom! What a're you go" lng to do with that boy of yours?" The old man advanced to the door and replied: "What am I going to do with him? Well, I will tell you, doctor. I am going to do with my son what you can not do with yours." "Oh, indeed!"-said the doctor. "And pray what is that?" "Why, I'm going to make a b...

THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. Some time ago a schoolmaster in a country school asked his pupils to write an essay on cows. Here is the 'effort" of a farmer's son: The cow is a no-bull and kine-heart. ed creature. The man who looks after cows is called a cowherd, but he is no cow. ard who looks after cows. Cowes has a regatta every year; yet the cow is not a nautical animal. It is not true that she steers with her udders. It is reported that the cow sat at the head of the table in the Ark (so say the ark-cow-olo;iets), because she was the only anmsal that could calve. The ccw is a uood mother, and will look calf-ter her c:alf. Cows rarely ride in carriages, but a fine calf has frequently been seen de scendig fg'm a tramcar. Cows exist by means of the oxygen In the atrmas~here (1 got this from a pInfesýor at Ox:ord). By the cow is the milk made. I know this because I have often seen the milkmaid by the cow. The cow has been introduced into song. There is an old song called "The Soldier's Stee...
REMARKABLE RESULTS. INSTRUCTIVE STATISTICS. LONDON, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
-REMARKABLE REBULTS. ..INSTRUCTIVE STATISTICS. LONDON, Thursday. Dr. Barlow reports that 24 cases of cancer, which were beyond surgical aid, were admitted to the Middlesex Hos pital from January to Sopt·-oo 1912. An aled. During the same period of 1913, no fewer than 68 cases wore treated with radium. Thirty-six died, and the remainder were discharg ed, and are now able to attend to their daily duties. Dr. Barlow adds that if 150 'milli grammes are buried in a cancerous tu mor, it simply withers away, and dis appears. A few cells left unkilled may afterwards cause a recurrence. Time is required to substantiate the remark able results achieved. Nevertheless, there is no linger any doubt as to the immediate effect. It is a matter of urgency that the State should control the sources of radium, in order to pre vent a ridiculous inflation of prices arti ficially engineered.

OSTRICH PLUMES IN JARS. "There is no place like a pawnshop for picking up useful hints," said the improvident man. "Every time my circumstances compel me to patronise one I glean comln item of general In formation that almost reconciles me to the necessity or being there. On my last visit I saw a man redeeming ostrich feathers. Our uncle brought them out tightly sealed in a glass jar. "'What did You "can" them for? the man asked. "'So they wouldn't spoil,' said the pawnbroker. 'A glass ajr is the safest thing on eath to keep feathers in. Moths and dust cannot get at them. Besides, you can keep an eye on them easily, and any trouble that might have been breeding when the feathers were brought in can be discovered an( nipped in the bud.'

The way things look now nobody belonging to me will ever have any ostrich plumes to take care of. but it we ever have any 1 shall know what to do with them."

HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
HEART PALPITATION. It is rarely, if ever, that palpitation is due to any disease or weakness of the heart. It is almost invariably the result of nervous or digestive trouble. The beat of the heart arises within itself. • There are nerves in the mus cles of the heart, and they regulate its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. If they 'were not, held in check they would set a rate about double that which Is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs of regulating nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerves, act only to spur up the heart to quicker action; They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inhibitory nerves, are always- in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile is true, for these nerves check the steed. Fear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-iphibitory nerves to re lazx...
