INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

INVENTIONS BY ACCIDENT. Many important inventions were, merely the result of accident. An al chemist, experimenting in earths for the making of crucibles, found that lie had invented porcelain. A watchmaker's apprentice, holding a spectacle-glass between his thumb and forefinger, noticed that through it the neighboring buildings appeared larger, and thus he discovered the adaptability of the lens to the tele scope. A Nuremberg glass-cutter by acci dent one day dropped a little aqua fortis upon his spectacles. He found that it corroded and softened the glass, and he conceived the idea of etching. He drew figures upon the glass with varnish, applied the fluid, and cut away the glass about the drawing. When ho removed the var nish the figures appeared, raised on a dark ground. The process of whitening sugar was never known until a hen walk ed through a clay-puddle and then strayed through a sugar-house. Her tracks were left in the piles of sugar, and when it was noticed that the spots ...

Considerate. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

Considerate. Mr. Ilardhitter's claim, to a seat on tlic local council rested chiefly on what "lie called "the gross incompetence and criminal extravagance" of the present # body. Individually and collectively, * Hanlhitter ruthlessly exposed their failings, but in spite of this he failed to win the*seal.! Worse, infinitely worse, one of his oldest friends deserted, and voted for the other side at the last moment. "ITow was it, John?" asked the dis appointed candidate, more in sorrow than in anger. "Why did you yote against me?" "Because," responded John, "I thinKs a deal too much aboot ye to. send ye 'amang sich a dishonest set o' rascals as yo've proved them other fellers to be!" : j.

The Worst of Education. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

The Worst • of ' Education. When the new and tlie old school meet there is likely to be a clash of opiuitfu-v.and-so-Miller Brown found the,'other day when Farmer Jackson sent his young son across to the mill with a sack of wheat which he wished ground into meal. Like the miller, the mill was of the old, leisurelj school^ and only a tiny stream of meal tricklc-d out. The young man waxed impatient. "What a mill!" he said, with scorn. "Why, I could eat the meal quicker than this ramshackle old concern of yours-can.grind it!" ."Ay," said Miller Brown; '.'but* liow. long couldst keep it up, lad?" "Till X starved!" was the trenchant answer. And when Miller Brown had puzzled out the inwardness of the remark, he concluded that lads nowadays . were "geUin' a power too-sharp wl' their tongues."

He Had Often Heard of Him. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

He- Had' Often- Heard of Him. , It was a contested will case,. and one of the witnesses, in the course 'of giving his evidence, described the testator minutely. "Now, sir," said the counsel tor the defence,. "I suppose we may take it, from the flattering description you have given o£ the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance of mine!" - "Indeed! Well, then, you must have observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. ' This prevarication, as counsel thoughtit,' was . too much, and he said: ' . "Now,. now, don't trifle with the court,".please! How, I ask you, could you, in the name of goodness, de scribe' him so minutely if you never saw him" or never knew him?" ; "Well," replied the witness, and the smile which overspread his features 'extended" to the faces of those in court, "you see, I ma...

KEEP FAITH WITH THE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

KEEP-FAITH WITH THE1 CHILDREN. .Many a woman who would not think of lightly breaking a promise made to a grown-up person is utterly careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises is a matter in which she can please herself, and that her children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. A mother who acts thus does her children grievous harm. She forgets that the sense of justice is strong in auite a Kttle child, and that it is nat ural and reasonable that he should expect his parents to be as good as their word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us. When boys and girls learn to doubt their parents' truthfulness they soon loo...

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. OLD MOTHERS. I love o d mothers—mothers with white hair. And kind y eyes, and lips grown softly sweet With murmured blessings over sleep ing babes. There is something in (heir quiet grace That speaks the calm of Sabbatli afternoons; A knowledge in their deep unfaltering eyes \ That far outreaches all philosophy. Time, with caressing touch, about them weaves The silver-threaded fairy shawl of age, While all the echoes of forgotten songs Seem joined to lend a sweetness to their speech. Old mothers!—as they pass-..with slow-timed step, Their trembling hands cling gently to youth's strentgli; Sweet mothers! as they pass, one sees again Old garden walks, old roses, and old loves.

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. Many interesting incidents relative to the siege of Ladysmith are record ed in "Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by the late Melton Prior:— "The enemy succeeded in placing1 thirty-two guns on the heights above the town, and kept up such an inces sant fire that the troops and civilians were soon engaged in digging bomb proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boer guns by their sound, and gave them amusing names. Three of the large ones they called 'Long Tom,' 'Puffing Billy,' and 'Weary Willie.' Then there was 'Silent Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first warning we got that it had been fired. "Iii spite of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew accustomed to the shelling. One day the Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no one was hit, and they went on playing. The Boers were so interested nppar , ently that they ga...
