When he went to the edge of the cliff he tcok with him a revolver and a bottle of poison. He was seen to stand on a perilous ledge, drink the poison., fire three shots at him self, and then go hurtling through the air to the fatal rocks below. There is a story of a man who went to a beach for the purpose of destroying himself. He fixed a rope to a pile and noosed it round his neck, hanging being the first string to his bow. Then he drank poison. Then he raised a revolver to his head to put a bullet through it.. But a wave joggled him at the ...

THE OTHER FELLOW'S JOB. Everybody Envies Somebody Else. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
THE OTHER FELLOW'S JOB. Everybody, Envies Somebody Else. There's a craze among us mortals that is very hard to name, Wheresoe'er you find a human you will find the case the same; You may seek among the worst of men or seek. among the best, And you'll find that every person is precisely like the rest; Each believes his real calling is along some other line Than the one at which he's working take, for instance, yours and mine. From the meanest "me-too" creature. to the leader of the mob, There's- universal craving for "the other fellow's job." There are millions of positions in the busy world to day, Each a drudge to him who holds it, but to him who doesn't, play; Every farmer's broken-hearted that in youth he missed his call, While the same unhappy farmer is the envy of us all. Any task you care to mention seems a vastly better. lot Than the one especial something which you happen to have got. There's but one sure way to smother Envy's heartache and her sob; Keep too busy at your own...

Young Hec, the First Municipal Foal, Sent to Country Farm for Three Years.-Council Blacksmith, with Gag Bit, to Act as Horse Dentist. Pat. Raftis, the Church-street hay and corn dealer, who enjoys a mono-" poly of the council's business, got his latest cheque, for £63 17/-, through without comment on Monday night. We can't help it; we simply put our hands to our sides and laugh long and hearty. The other day a chap rushed into this office and asked for the loan of a camera. "There's a fine snapshot down at the Richmond Park," he said. Then we questioned him. Two council employes, he said, had hold of the ends of separate ropes, tied around the neck of a young draught pony. Our camera man was out that day, and the "snap" was missed. That is why this par isn't illustrated. By Hec! if it were. It turns out that the trot around in the park was a means of giving young liec some afternoon exercise. "Mick" Cameron is prepared to swear to it. But such pranks couldn't last for ever. Young He...
