"A penny for your thoughts, uncle," --he said. "They are worth nothing," Ralph replied. "And if I sold them to you for a penny you would give all Raven spur Castle and your coming fortune to be rid of them." He croaked this out in a fierce whis per.

MORE THAN PAINSTAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
MORE THAN PAINSTAKING. "The definition of genius as 'an in finite capacity for taking pains' is rather a dull one," recently remarked a student of men and things. "Generally speaking, genius means an inborn faculty for doing one or more things with a skill far beyond that of. the ordinary worker. "It is true that many a genius has been an abnormally hard worker. But the work was always inspired br en thusiasm. Hard work done without nope and confidence never stirred the pulse of the world, or won laurels for the worker. "Even a worker without genius may achieve great things if he is fired with enthusiasm. H-ence the neces sity for men, and. women, too, to se leet the kind of work in which they feel the most interest." . ? m . m . .. R
WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
WAR. Do you hear 'the children crying In far lands ? Do you hear the widows sighing In many lands ? Then let the nations kneel and pray That God would rule the earth al way, And stop the cruel spoilers' prey In far off lands. Do you see the wheat-fields burning 'Neath the sun? Do you see the fair homes turning, One by one, Into heaps of ashes lying? Where beneath the maimed, the cry ing, Lie at eventide, and dying, Dead and done. Do you hear the murderous thunder In the night? Waking womens' peaceful slumber, To the fight? Death for ever, in the rear, Trembling sorrow, awful fear, Ah! Many mourn the lost, the dear, After the fight. Do you see the bayonets flashing 'Long the lines ? Do you hear the awful crashing 'Mongst the pines? Then, pray as men ne'er prayed be fore That cruel War, with battle's roar, May soon be o'er for evermore, With all its signs. Do you see the hurried burial Of brave men? None to let a silent tear fall, None to ken ? There the ,true loved ones are resting A...
SUCH IS OPTIMISM. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
SUCH IS OPTIMISM. The man who believes that "every thing will come right" is usually dub bed an "optimist." But he has no true claim to the title if he does not exert himself in the process of helping on the result in which he believes. The world abounds with a class of so-called optimists who, when they find themselves confronted with a bar rie'r, smile blandly and declare that the obstacle is quite transitory, and that all we need do is to wait until it disappears. The true optimist is the man who recognises the barrier, and declares that with patience and energy he will open a way through it; It is said of a great soldier that he won the confidence of his men by iever affecting to despise a difficulty. When in positions of danger he made it known that he quite realised the gravity of his position, but was con. lident that if well backed he would amerge with success. He was a real optimist as compared with the sham variety who think to win their way through difficulties by pretend...
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Corporal W. Morton, of Bacchus Marsh: Dec. 4.-Still on board ship-seven weeks now. Leaving here Monday fbr Cairo, and from there to Marree. The object is to stop the advance of the Turkish troops, of whom they say there are 60,000 mobilising, and starting on Egypt. There are large numbers of Imperial troops stationed all the way up the Suez Canal. Our boys are alright yet. The horses are looking better now the weather has got colder. There is a pretty rough sea, and the natives get a rough time in their rcanoes. They bring boatloads of fruit out to the ship 'and sell it over the sides. They also bring underclothing to sell. A mail came on board, but I got none; they get mixed up,- and get on the other boats, and we do not get them for four or five days after. The Suez Canal is a great piece of work. It is like a big water channel, only about 1(00 yards wide, but the banks are very steep. Places are made, five or six miles apart, for ships to go into whe...
A Fruitarian. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
A Fruitarian. "What have you got in that pack age?" said the attendant at the mu. scum. "Bananas," answered the boy. ;'A dozen of 'em: Want one?" "No; and you can't bring them in here." "Why not?" "It's against the rules. But you can check the package at that window and get it when you come out." "Cost anything to check it?" "Twopence." The boy said he wouldn't pay it. and went away. Ten minutes later he appeared with out the package. "I suppose I can go in now all right?" he said. "Hold on. Have you got those ba. nanas concealed about you?" "Yes, sir; all but the skins. I throw. Ad them away." A noted solicitor, who late in life had taken to golf, was` once playing with a full equipment of balls and :lubs. The game looked more easy than it really was. When he had handled all his clubs in turn without much progress being made, he turned to his caddie and, with troubled ex pression, said: "Here, boy, I have used all my rlubs; what am I to do next?" The caddie, who had been watching t...
BE LOYAL TO FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
BE LOYAL TO FRIENDS. If there is one trait more than an other that should be assiduously cul tivated by the woman who wishes to make herself popular, that one is loyalty to her friends. This trait em bodies many other estimable ones, and is the basis of a lovely and noble character. To begin with, the woman who is truly loyal never even thinks evil of those whom she has chosen to closely associate herself with, let alone ex. pressing sentiments that might be construed into appearing derogatory, therefore back-biting and unfriendly gossip never find place among the natural failings that even the most perfect being possesses. When a woman has been tried and has stood the test, there should well up in the heart of the one possessing so staunch a friend a great fountain of thanksgiving.

EDISON ON THE LONDON LABORER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 February 1915
EDISON ON THE LONDON L.ABORERl A correspondent who has been tra velling in the United States and Can ada, says he heard the same thing everywhere-the Englishman who suc ceeds is hardly ever a Londoner; the Englishman who fails completely is almost always a Londoner. The cor respondent visited Mr. Edison at his laboratory in New Jersey. "Say, what's the matter with your people over there?" the inventor ex claimed. "Here I've had to close down my phonograph factory in -England what's the name of the place? I've forgotten-somewhere near London. All the others in Europe pay, but we couldn't make that one pay. We get: good work out of the French and the Belgians and the Germans and Aus trians, but the English-no good. Bel gians, eighty-five per cent.; English, thirty per cent." Mr. Edison meant ratio productive capacity. He went on: Mind, I'm not speaking 'of the Eng lish mechanic. He's all right-none better in the world. I'm talking of the common- laborer-him you pick, up on the streets...
