PUSHER OR PULLER. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
PUSHER OR PULLER. Sir Oliver Lodge claims that there is no such thing as pull applied to bod ies; that is, that an engine, for in stance, never pulls a train, but really pushes it. A little excursion into what he means will readily convince the sceptical that he is right. Take this example: The couplings of the en gine extend behind that of the car following and does actually shove it forward. The reason it conies for ward is because its parts do not se parate; that is, it has cohesion. But the actual force administered is that of a push and not a pull. Take a rope pulling a safe up to a window; it is wrapped under the safe, and that is the part that is exerting the force and urging the safe upward, the other parts of the rope simply sticking to gether. When we pull our coats off we really push them off, for the force is exerted behind the object in the di rection of the motion, and, as every one knows, that is called push.

SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
SENDING ARMIES TO SLEEP. If a discovery by a German woman chemist fulfils expectations the vic tors in the battles of the future will be 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 be so dazed for an hour or so as to be practically useless. The powder will be fired 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 t...
SUNSHINE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
SUNSHINE AT HOMg. 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 fpr 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 cot roam, Feeling as rich as a wealth-laden ' mine, With a sweet, loving smile in. my 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— Yet will remain for ever in mind, Though afar in the heaven's broad dome, The sweet, happy face, loving and kind, With the smile that awaits me at home. - .
A FORGOTTEN PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 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 botli 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 fci:ildh.g; 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 had conquered and entered into her king...
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. One day Nasir-el-din ascended 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 is no use of my wasting my time on such an ignorant set." And so saying, he came down from the pulpit. He went to preach a second time, and 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 not know." "O!" said Nasir-el-din, "let those who know tell those who do not know, and I shall be spared the trouble o preaching," and again he came down from the pulpit.
SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. "To travel hopefully is better than to arrive; and the true success is la bor." ' 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 tho keynote of the character of the man, who, starting life 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 suceess-'-for the young business man. Here are a few of Ins 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 he should try to find even a better way than that he has been told." "Imagination should prove...

CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. It is an ancient-belief that the nose indicates ancestry. We speak about the aristocratic nose with its high bridge and the plebeian nose of the toiler. Certainly, in a great many cases, race can 'be distinguished by the 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 ognomists. 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 ot valor. • The modern owner of such a nose will achieve success, be a leader, perhaps not in a 'battle for blood, but in business or profes sional life. The woman with this n se may cbtain social leadership if sh chooses that rather than some other line of achievement. The G...
DOING THE DANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
DOING THE DANDY. A young dandy walked into the bar of a country "public" one day, and, re ceiving a respectful salutation from a "joskin" who stood near, ordered drinks for two, handing a sovereign in payment, saying he had nothing I less. ! The barmaid was obliged to take the coin to her mistress for change, but soon returned, and asked if he would pay the next time ho was passing, as they were unable 'to give change. A minute later, taking advantage of the girl's absence, the dandy nudged the laborer's arm, and said: "Look here, friend, what do you say to getting drinks for nothing?" "Why, I'm game, of course!" "Well, 'then, I'll lend you the sover eign, and you order the drinlts." The exchange was soon effected, and Hodge knocked loudly on the counter. "Same dose again," he said, when the maiden appeared, and, diving deep down Into his trousers pocket, flshed up the sovereign. "Take th' change out o' that," he said coolly. After another brief disappearance, the young woman return...

Next day Sheila Danvers was very ill—really ill for the first time in her life. Shamus t)'Doyle returned in a whirl of excitement, ready to say and do everything for the girl he adored, but Sheila did not know him, and not only the neighboring doctor was 1 fetched,, but the best opinion in Cork was hastily summoned. The girl was suffering from high fever brought on by shock and exposure. How such a thing could have happened no one could tell, although Sheila in all her wanderings kept talking constantly about a Mrs. Murphy, who told her to keep in the grounds, and then of a woman who wore a long black cloak and black bonnet; but these rum blings were supposed to be due to de lirium, and the poor Squire, Shamus and the rest of the household were be side themselves with grief. As for Nanny Maguire,...

Not What He Seemed. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
Not What He Seemed. A well-known figure in the political ferment in England is Lord Charles Beresford, who is himself, of course, an Irishman. Lord Charles is generally ready with a telling retort, a fact that at least one well-lcnown politician remembers. This gentleman had changed political sides once or twice; and, having for the moment embraced the political faith of Lord Charles, he attended one of his lordship's meetings. Afterwards he went up to the speaker to congratu late him. ! "Capital speech that of yours, Beres \ ford," he said, with an air of patron age Lord Charles found it hard to bear, "very good, indeed; but, you know, you don't look like a statesman." To which he got the smashing reply: "Neither do you look like a weather cock."
THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 July 1914
THE MILLENNIUM. When the last hobble skirt is for gotten, And the last new fad has been tried: When the pannier fashion has faded, And the "hipless" craze has died. We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it— Be at peace for a season or two, Till the next frealc 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 ch^ir; . They shall wear their own faces '.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 of the men will praise them, And none will admire the sight;. For no one will dress for fashion, And no one for man's delight; But each for her own sweet comfort, And each in her own sweet way, Shall wear the thing that she wishes, But the gods will weep that day.
THE HAPPY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 22 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 claimed, for different rea sons, that it was impossible to be per fectly happy—or, as one of them 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 liappv 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...
