OBSERVED IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
OBSERVED IN CHINA. The Emperors of China. are required by their ancient customs to take a close interest in agriculture. Every.year the Er3peror, with his own hands, grasps the plough handle and drives the first furrow. Every year he or some member of his fam ily plants a mulberry tree, a custom which has special reference to the silkworms for which China is famous. At the beginning of each spring the first radish and young shoots of let tuce are presented to the Dowager Em press, who solemnly tastes them. As she does so all the ladies of the Court express a wish for national prosperity. Their words are taken up by the at tendants and echocd and re-echoed by every inmate of the palace until it rises in a great volume of sound that can be heard afar. Then 'Her Majesty utters a wish that the sap may rise in such abundance as to ensure a fruit ful year. - - The other day a benevolent old gen dleman was stopped by a tramp who asked for money to get a night's lode ing.

INSPIRED BY REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
INSPIRED BY REVENGE. Trhe recent death of an old Indian N-utiny veteran-one of the gunners whose duty it was to execute the ring leaders amongst the mutineers by blowing them from the guns-reminds a correspondent of a grim story rela ted by an old artillery officer who served in India during the Mutiny period. "I remember," said the old soldier, "that one day when we had a large batch of condemned men for execu tion, one of the guns mysteriously failed to go off. Tied to the muzzle was a sepoy-a bloodstained wretch who had assisted in the massacre of English women-and the effect of the suspense upon him was terrible. "Each. unsuccessful attempt to fire the gun increased his terror, and from a pale and trembling wretch he was gradually reduced to a limp and in. animate mass. And still the gun re fused to act. When at last it was dis charged, I felt certain that it was only just in time to prevent the murderer dying of pure fright. "Long afterwards I discovered that the gun's curious ...
OUR LITTLE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916
OUR LITTLE -DAY. Who ever thinks that his day h over? No one. One's talent, success, aspirations are in one's own estima tion immortal. If one had the. ghost of a doubts )ow differently one would act! There is a climax to every man's career, be he ever so greas and no man can escape the sympathy or ne glect of the world. The question is Which hurts most? The only human attribute, it would seem, that outlives the final tragedy of time is character. A great statesman undoubtedly out lives his usefulness; a great financier will find the time come when younger brains will outwit his, weary and worn with the eternal and futile struggle for wealth and recognition. .A great painter will reach a time when his eyes and his faithful hands become tired; and the poet, too, will find his imagination unrespongive to spur. ring. Even the greatest scientistsd.ve to make way for newer discoverers. What we call knowledge is but a stepping-stone to the eternal truths; and in due time, the stepping-sto...
