FULL OF RESOURCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
FULL OF RESOURCE. Jean Bart, a Frencli naval comman der of the last part of the seven teenth century was at one time order ed to convey the Prince de Conti, a candidate for the throne of Poland, to Dantzie, a voyage fraught with dan ger, as his vessel must pass through the waters where were cruising the hostile fleets of the English and Dutch. During the passage, the lit tle squadron was chased toy the en emy, and Bart, as soon as they were reported, called his little son to him and gave ,him whispered instructions. The pursuit continued for eight hours, and at the end of that time, the en emy was no longer in sight. Then Bart went down into the cabin, where the prince had been sitting in ignor ance of the day's excitement. "You've had a narrow escape, mon seigneur," said .he.
II. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
II. Malcolm Traves was at Waterloo, though it was after twelve o'clock when they arrived there, and he drove with them to the Carlton Hotel. Miss Geraldine, he said, had gone down to Datton, but would return early in the day. His greater news he kept to himself, chuckling the while as a boy who would throw'a stone but has not the courage. It was good to see him at the table in Hugh's private room, sipping the champagne to the accompaniment of deep mouthings and lingering sighs of satisfaction. Not so the Archdeacon, who lifted his gjass like a veteran and rarely set it down empty. George Hedges had no poor heart which never rejoiced. And this truly was an occasion be yond memory. To be sure they talked of what was to come—but with greater earnest ness of what • might be. The ques tions they put to the old solicitor ■brought a merry light to his eyes and a frivolity beyond experience to his lips. Did he think Renal-Smith's evi dence would be accepted? Was it enough to swear that Dani...

Ambiguous. His Mother: Remember, Tommy, the devil finds work for idle hands to do; now run out and chop some wood and bring it in. There are morose hard natures in which cheerfulness cannot be planted or engrafted. Such natures are like shadows of life—the clouds that blot out from our view the beautiful sun.

A Neddyfying Move. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
A Neddyfying Move. The Mayor's wife was highly elated over her husband's unexpected knight hood, and it was with gratification that she induced him to consent to their speedy removal to a more classy neighborhood. She at once dispatched a letter to the principal carriers to send, on a certain date, one of their largest fur niture removers. On the day of the removal, how ever, the Mayoress was staggered to see a donkey and cart stop outside the house. "Whatever does this- mean?" she demanded of the driver. "I sent for one of your largest vans!" "Be easy, mum," replied the man. soothingly. It's orlright. The big van was bespoke, d'ye see, so the gaf fer ses to me, ses he, 'Shyfter, you tak; Neddy, an' do the job in twice, an' I'll only charge the lady for one run.' So 'ere I be, mum. Woa, Neddy!" You can build a house, but a home must grow.
Which Leg? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Which Leg? In a small town in the West of Scotland the town clerk, who was a bit of a "character," had the mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway ac cident. As a mark of appreciation and es teem for his long services, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with an artificial leg, which they j did as soon as he was sufficiently re covered. - A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was unfor tunate enough to have his other leg fractured in a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neigh bor, was overheard saying— "It's a grey bad business for Paul, puir man; but is't his ain leg or the leg that belangs to the toon that's broken?"
WHERE NOBODY DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and people without (that is when they can) has ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they de sire, placed under mother earth. Bret Harte remarked in one of his storiea that he would like to find a place where no one ever died. According to. the Gembrook Cemetery trustees, the Gembrook district is just the place the American novelist was look ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no bus; ness dcing in the burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In the past 40 years there were only two in terments, and they were pauper easels who had strayed into the district, not residents. The trustees have accord ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery, that the local "planting' ground" is wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict is ever going to die and give them a job. As a health resort recommen dation this will take some beating.

Why? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Why? "Why does the ibaker knead the dough?" Inquired my sou, aged six or sough, And I replied in accents lougli: "Because we knead the bread, you knough!" "But, then, why do we need the :bread?" The same inquiring youngster sead. "Because small boys have to be fead," Quoth I. "Now, off you go to 'bead!" It was bound to come. The first we heard of it was from the scornful lips of a small cadet some months back, who reckoned that "those jolly girls ought to do compulsory train ing, too; they never do anything for their country"—and now M.H.R. Fin layson has given notice of a motion that a Bill should be introduced mak ing service as nurses in the mili tary forces compulsory on all girls between the ages of 16 and 22. Sev erar days have passed since the an nouncement was made, and not a •word of protest from "Mother of Six," "Freedom Leaguer," or "Quak er's Oats" has met our eye; neither has any eligible maiden raised her voice against the idea, so we take it that silence means consent...
BUILD A COMPLETE, WELLROUNDED CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
BUILD A COMPLETE, WELL ROUNDED CHARACTER. Have you ever observed, says the novelist Bjornsen, that happy people work better than those who are sad? Why? The same occupation con stantly, whether it be work, prayer or amusement, would make us stupid and gloomy. You can dig in the diVt until you become a brute, pray until the habit makes you a monk, and play until you become a mere puppet; but combine the three, it will streng then the heart and soul. Thus your work will be made more fruitful and your religion more cheerful.
Simple Sandy. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
Simple Sandy. A commercial traveller had taken a large order up in Aberdeen, and en deavored to press upon the canny Scottish manager who had given the order a box of Havana cigars. "Naw," he replied. "Don't try to bribe a man. I cudna tak' them—and ,1 am a member of the kirk!" "But will you accept them. as a present?" "I cudna," said the Scot. ■ "Well, then," said the traveller, "suppose I sell you the cigars for a merely nominal sum—say, sixpence?" "Weel, in that case," replied the Scot, "since you press me, and not liking tae refuse an offer weel meant, I think I'll be taking twa boxes." "Opportunity may knock at every man's door," writes a disappointed wag, "but to me opportunity has al ways seemed more like one of those small boys who ring the doorbell and then run."
EVERY MOTHER HER CHILDREN'S FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

WOMAN'S NOSE RE-MODELLED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914
WOMAN'S NOSE REMODELLED. A woman recently left the London Hospital with .1 new nose made from a flap of skin taken from her own forehead. The operation was render ed necessary on account ot an ulcer of years' growth, which had gradually eaten away all the tissue of the nose. The operation, known as the Indian method, was devised by Lieut-Coi. Keega'n some years ago, hut has only been performed successfully in Eng land two or three times. A racket shaped flap of skin about two inches in length and an inch and a quarter wide was cut, extending upwards, from the bridge of the nose, the be ginning of the "handle" of the racket being the only point of attachment. The whole thickness of the skin "was very carefully detached from the un derlying bone, and, being swung round with its attachment at the base of the nose, was made to cover the pre viously denuded nose area. The new nose was stitched into place at the sides., openings being left for the wo man's nostrils. The denuded space on t...
