FIND PLEASURE IN WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
FIND PLEASURE IN WORK. Are you a victim of the irritabil- ; ity habit? Do you go to pieces nervously if you are obliged to re peat a remark to someone who did not understand you? Do you make yourself and everyone wretched if a chair is out of place, or a meal a moment late, or some members ot the family is tardy at dinner? Does your temper fly loose at trifles? .If it does you are a sufferer from irri tability, and all the personal annoy- ? ances that go with it are nothing ,but nervous tension. The case with which they may be overcome seems like a miracle to those who ,.. ? studv for a better guidance to their bodies. The cure is to wake up ev ery morning with your mind made up that you will find pleasure in vour work — not view it as an irk some task — and begin the day by getting a good, nice, pleasant thought into your head. See how good this beginning is. -68 — ~r
TWO GOOD PARTY GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
TWO GOOD PARTY GAMES. The success or failure of a party for young people depends largely on the amusements suggested. There are times when the introduction of some novel game or diversion serves to 'break the ice' and put everyone at ease. Here are two simple forms of entertainment, new to many per sons. The first requires no special preparation. An empty bottle is placed upon a small table, the cork being set loose ly in the top of it in such a way that the least touch will disiodge it. The members of the party are lined up some distance away, and with right arms extended horizontal ly, walk rapidly by the table on tip toe, endeavouring as they pass to dis lodge the cork by a snap of the finger. No one must stop or slow up as he reaches the table, nor may the bottle be touched or overturned. The trick appears so simple that the surprise of the performers when they miss the cork and snap at the air, as they are almost sure to do on the first trials, never fails to excite mer riment....
Words of Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
Words of Wisdom. ? ^ j.u uu casjii^-vvnai is uiiiiuunnur' — — others is the mark of talent. Don't be ashamed of 'earning your living at any honest work. A critic.may be your friend, a flat, terer is usually your enemy.. Control your own development if you would be master of your fate. We seldom repent talking too lit tle, but very often talking too much. The safest words are always those which bring us most directly to ^ facts. Perseverance sometimes wins a woman where true love ? wouldn't even touch her heart. The funniest part of it is, that the - men who make fools of themselves seem to enjoy it.

CONUNDRUMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
CONUNDRUMS. What is the difference between a jeweller and a gaoler ? — One sells watches and the other watches cells. Why is a cat's-meat man like an inspired poet? — Because his efforts are encouraged by the mewa (muse). Why are artists like washerwo men 1 — Because they are not satis fied until their works are 'hung on the line,' Which has the hardest life of it, coffee. or tea? — Tea, for while coffee can settle down, tea is compelled to draw. Why cannot a deaf man be legal ly convicted ? — Because it is not law ful to condemn a man without a hearing. Why is an old chair that has a new bottom put to it like a paid bill ?— Because it has been re-seated (receipted). Why should a man always wear a watch when he travels in a desert? — Because every watch has a spring in it. _. Why should soldiers be rather tired on April 1st?— Because they have just had a March of thirty-one days.

HOW TO GET AN AUTOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
HOW TO CET AN AUTOGRAPH. Ellis Parker Butler was a clerk in a Muscatine spice mill when Bill Nye came across his horizon. The ni^ht Mr. Nye showed at that town Butler occupied a seat in the first pr-illery — from tho roof. Tho sad-eyed humor ist pleased him so that ho decided to writo for an autograph. He wanted it for the front page of his stamp album. A carefully-worded epistle brought no reply. Whereupon the industrious youth wrote another and another. No an swers. Undaunted, he got a line on the routo of his celebrity and develop ed an inspiration somewhat as follows : 'Edgar Wilson Nye, Esq., Planters Hotel, St. Louis, Mo. ' ' 'Dear Mr. Nye, — I have been writ- - ing to yon rather persistently. Tho reason is that I have discovered a new porn cure. I want to name it after you and use your picture on the box. I know that you are a busy man. 'i I do not hear from you soon I will con sider that you have given your con sent. Very respectfully yours, Ellis P. Butler.' By return mail ...
A NIGHT LIFEBUOY [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
? A_NIfiHT T IFERUQY ? a. ? If, as often happens, a person should fall overboard when it is dark, the ordinary lifebuoy is not much use unless the vessel happens to be provided with a searchlight. The item we illustrate is intended specifically as a night- buoy. It con sists of two hollow metal globes which are so buoyant that when in the water a man's weight will not sink them. The vertical tube con tains a composition of calcium and phosphorous which ignites on coming into contact with water. In the case of 'man overboard' one of these buoys is thrown towards him, and as the composition instantly lights up, there is a definite guide for him to make for, provided he can swim, till such time as he i3 rescued.
A FORGOTTEN ISLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
A FORGOTTEN ISLE. With regard to Iviza, the third in importance of the Balearic Isles, which' lie midway between Spain and Africa, its complete history has never been, and never will be, writ ten. From the fragmentary records extant, one gathers that from earli est days occupation of the lovely and fertile island was hotly contest ed. Chaldeans, Egyptians, Phoe nicians, Romans, Greeks, Vandals, Saracens, and Moors fought for its possession. Since the Aragenese invasion of the thirteenth century, Iviza has belonged to Spain. Writ ing in 'Chamber's Journal,' an ac count of a visit to Iviza, Mary Stu art Boyd gives some interesting de tails of the life of the people. Des cribing the Sunday morning scene when the country folk come to town to Mass and to market, she says: Some of the women rode mules, sitting perched high on a pile of sheepskins, their multi-coloured pet ticoats billowing about their neat ankles; others were packed closely into open carts that had cushions placed low on ...
A THING DISGRACED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
A THING DISGRACED. The punishment of imprisonment does nob do what it professes to do and is supposed to do. It does not reform anyone ; it does not deter anyone from going back to crime ; it does not help anyone to win again the place that he has lost as a citi zen, declares Tighe Hopkins in the 'World's Work.' In every way it hinders him. If he does not come out of prison a worse man than he | was when he entered it, he comes out a weaker and more helpless one. His general efficiency, I think, is about 75 per cent, less than it was. He has existed duing his imprisonment as a Thing — a Thing disgraced and de spised. It is unwholesome to live in this way, and it is indescribably emasculating. No man can be im proved, and the most obdurate of men is made more obdurate by being compelled to pass a term of years in contempt and degradation. The man who has done this is at a frightful disadvantage when he is delivered again into freedom, with his way to make once more in the world. He h...
THE SIZE OF OCEAN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
THE SIZE OF OCEAN WAVES. Science shows that many of the stories of great ocean waves are exaggerated, for it has been prov ed that the biggest wave caused by a gale does not exceed thirty feet. Tidal waves have been known to reach heights of sixty feet, but they are an exception. With the in crease of size of ocean steamers, the point of sight of the passenger has been raised, and it requires the roughest kind of a sea to show a broken horizon from the promenade deck of the biggest liners. The pitch of the vessel is largely eli minated, although the decks, high above the highest waves of the most severe storms, have been washed by water thrown upward because of i-hp—onivj'-'iing.nfCrrcd- to _ the ad hulls.

FOR PHYSICIANS AND NURSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
FOR PHYSICIANS AND NURSES. A new pulse-counting watch, which has been designed for phy sicians and nurses, shows, without calculation, the number of pulse beats per minute, and has the ad vantage of strict accuracy and of not requiring the attention to be lixed on the watch hands. It? principle is that of the stop-watch. Pressing a push-button sets in mo tion a large second-hand when counting of the pulsations begins, and at the twentieth another pres sure on the button stops the hand. The number of beats per second is then indicated on the dial. Again pressing the button sets the hand at starting point, and the. watch is ready for another determination. Be sides this use, the apparatus is al so adapted for automatically record ing any observations, in minutes, seconds, and fifths of a second.
BOARDING-HOUSE WIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
BOARDINC-HOUSE WIT. 'Let's see,' observed the smart boarder, seating himself at table, ''how - is it the proverb runs ? ' 'You refer to the saying that one man's meat is. another man's hash,' . put in oue. 'Oh,' cried another, 'don't cry over skimmed milk.' ? 'Oh possibly,' said a third, 'in - ?? butter there is strength.' v :- 'No,' returned the smart boarder, 'tho particular proverb I had in mind is 'None but the bravo can face tho fare.'' — 'Boston Transcript.' .
AN INVENTION FOR AVIATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
AN INVENTION FOR AVU TORS. ?The course of an airship results from both the forward motion due to the propellers and the drifting motion that may be set up from any cause. To determine the true direc tion at any time the Siemens Brothers, of Berlin, have devised a novel and important special scope into one-half of the field of the hori zontal and vertical telescope mount ed to rotate around a vertical axis; A prism reflects the images formed by the vertical telescope, into half of the field of the horizontal teles cope, the images of the latter filling the other half of the field of view ; and lines on the prism run in p!aues which are parallel to the axis of the horizontal telescope. As the bal loon moves along, objects on the earth's surface cross the field pf view. Th«fr apparatus is turned on its= vertical axis until .these objects seem to be travelling in the direc tion of the lines in the prism, and the horizontal' telescope wili then point — forward or backward as re quired — ...
A QUICK MEANS OF ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
A QUICK MEANS OF ESCAPE. A decidedly ingenious fire escape is primarily intended for tourists and travellers as ;i quick means of es cape from a burning building or ho tel. It consists of an ordinary leather kit-bng and a coil of rope, to which has previously been litted an automatic brake and hooks. The rope and brake can also be stored away in a portmanteau without serious inconvenience, being light and not occupying much space.. In case of fire all the tourist' would have to do would be to attach the hooks at the end of the rope to the fire-gate or any other fixed or heavy article in the room, drop the bag' over ..the window-sill, and descend in it to the ground, the descent be ing regulated by an automatic brake.

THE SCIENCE OF WALKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
THE SCIENCE OF WALKING. Dr. John C. Huber says we have to be very careful not to overtax the strength in the beginning ; in walk ing, as in everything else, it is im perative to avoid extremes. A radi cal change from one's habits is al ways dangerous. The way to walk is to throw back your shoulders, military fashion — the chest out, the pectorals expanding, and head erect, the lips closed — no mouthbreath ing. Let the stride be brisk and firm ; the arms swerving half-way — not like a windmill. Pretty much every muscle is thus in play. Have your mind all the time diverted by the ever-changing scenery; there is no way to equal this by which the cobwebs can be got out of the brain. This simple primeval exercise is pre ferable ~to any other, in that it is not in the contestant or athletic class of sports. Tireat a man with as much defer ence as you would a picture; look at him in the best light. A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he wiio plants kincTne...
