4On a Calm, Still Night. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
On a Calm, Still Night. It was indeed a beautiful night. The gentle zephyrs played musically amid the delicate fronds of the turnip-tops, and wafted 'from far-distant fields the subtle perfume of the luscious onion and the fragrance of decaying cab bages. ' 'Betsy,' he whispered, as they sat together on the fence surrounding Mrs. Filliean's bie-stv. ' 'ow beautiful you be! Jes' think of it, Betsy! When us be married us will have a pig of our own! Think of that, Betsy!' 'Ian,' she whispered, a note of re sentment in her voice, 'what -do I care for pigs? I sha'n't want a pig whe.i I've got you!' ; Then all was silent once more, save for the musical frolics of the zephyrs already mentioned.
WHEN PROPOSING [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
WHEN PROPOSING Don't mention the weather. Don't select a chair on the other side of the room. If you . hold her hand, don't keep Swinging it up and down while talk ing to her, as if you were hammer ing something. - ' . Don't mutter to yourself. Don't' begin by saying that you have something on your mind. Don't be impulsive and try to force her head on your shoulder before the psychological moment. Don't address the window-pane. Don't clasp your hands together. Same with your lips. Don't take one of her hands in both of yours. Don't keep your eyes fixed persist ently on the end of her nose while you're talking. Don't refer, even remotely, to the cost of living. It is bad taste to im ply that love in any sense is bound by natural laws. Don't pull the braid off the best sofa pillow. Don't sit for a long time without | saying anything.
TROUBLES OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
TROUBLES OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND. The Bank of England, 'the great est monetary establishment in the world,' has had iti troubles, notwith standing its great financial strength. It has passed through many perils. At various times its notes have been at a heavy discount, its credit has been assailed, it has been threatened, with impeachment, and it has been attack ed by rioters. The first 'run' on the bank occurred in 1707. Other panics or runs occurred in 1745, 1797, and 1S25. In 1832 the Duke of Wellington was unpopular, and four men placard ed the walls of London with the words, 'To Stop the Duke, Go for Gold.' No body kuew exactly what it meant, but it produced a tremendous run on the bank. At one time the bank lost £320,000 pounds through the forgeries of one man, and still more another time, by the forgeries of another man.

DR. WOODROW WILSON'S ANECDOTE. Electrifying a Western Audience Governor Wilson, the scholarly De mocratic candidate for the Americau Presidency, enjoys a good anecdote, much, and the telling of it better. His private secretary is an amusing young man, with a name which seems to leap from the pages of some populav novelist. Tumulty he is called. The other day Dr. Wilson was chat ting at his seaside home with the corps of newspaper correspondents, and Tumulty egged on the Governor to relate a story which electrified a popular Western audience a few weeks ago. 'We had been discuss ing the problem of the high cost of living,' said Dr. Wilson, 'and I had remarked that what we needed to do was to find a solution. Then this story popped into my head, and I couldn't resist telling it. It was one of those hypothetical questions which the English weeklies are so fond of printing with the query, 'What would you do, in the, same circumstances?' 'The hypothesis was this: A young man had come to ...
HOW TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY Secrets of Perennial Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
HOW TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY j Secrets of Perennial Youth. A London newspaper remarked re cently that, in order to reach a ripe old age, you must be born Young, and cited instances showing that the Youngs beat all other families in the matter of longevity. As most of us, however? are deliberately ignored when it comes to the choice of par ents and name, it becomes necessary for those who wish to discover the elixir of life to search for other se crets of happy old age. Jiivery man ana woman, or course, are to a great extent a law unto them selves in the matter of health; but there is one fact which should be borne in mind by all who wish for a long and healthful life. You can only grow old gracefully by remembering that you are growing old. In other words, regulate your habits accord ing to your years. There is no doubt that many men in the forties and fif ties take years off their lives by at tempting to live according to the me thods of men twenty years younger. As Mr. H. H. Riddle,...
USES OF SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
USES OF SALT. Salt may be said to be a pauacea, so many and varied are its uses. A pinch of salt on the tongue, fol lowed ten minutes afterwards by a drink of cold water, will cure a sick headache. It hardens the gums, makes the teeth white, and proves generally efficient. By adding a little salt to the water, cut flowers . may be kept fresh much longer than usual. By using very fine, dry salt as one would snuff, bad colds, hay fever, and kindred affections may be relieved or cured. A shallow teaspoonful of salt dis solved in a cup of hot water will re , lieve dyspepsia, heartburn and indiges tion. Strong salt and water will revive an unconscious person quicker than whisky or brandy. Salt and water held in the mouth will stop hemorrhage of the gums after tooth extraction. By washing the mouth and throat with salt and water before and after using the voice, public speakers and singers find , their organs greatly strengthened. Salt and pineapple juice will cure mild -cases of gastriti...
Question of Appropriateness. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 25 October 1912
Question of Appropriateness. 'In your sermon this morning you spoke of a baby as 'a new 'wave on the ocean of life.' ' 'Quite so — a poetical figure.' 'Don't you think 'a fresh squall' would have hit the mark better?' Education begins the gentleman, I but reading, good company, and re flection must finish him. The. man who is bluffing his way through the world is hated most bit terly and despised' most deeply by the man who is trying witho.ut success to do the same thing. One of the most pitiful mistakes young girls make in regard to mar riage is the not infrequent sacrifice of themselves in the belief that they will be able to reform dissipated lives. How many broken hearts have follow ed mistaken efforts of this sort to save a man from drunkenness or other de basing follies, - none of - us can ever reckon. ... .. . . - ^ ~ -* Vi
