THE GOOD TIME COMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
THE GOO'D TIME COMING. There's a better day a-comin', so these optimists declare; There a a splendid time approachin', when the days will all be fair. When (here won't be any cheatin' and the honest man will thrive; There's a better day a-comin', and I wish it would arrive. There will be a time when no one will get rich by do in' wrong, When the weak will have' no reason to be fearful o£ the strong, When they'll judge a man by nothln' but the good he does each day; There's a splendid time a-comin', but it's loafin' on the way. There will be a time when boastertf will be judged for what they're worth. When the bullieB and the rowdies won't have any place on earth, When there won't be no backbitln' and the gossips will be dumb; There's a better day a-comin", and I wish that It would come. - "Now, boys," said a Sunday-school teacher, "I want each of you to sub scribe something towards the mission to the Cariboos.

A PECULIAR MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
t A PECULIAR MAN. I The stories of- Honors de Balzac* one of the most eminent and volumin ous of French novelists, are faithful depictions of almost every phaBe ol French life, and in character delinea- j tion he has never been excelled. With a profound insight into the human • heart, he did not-scruple to depict,Its failings as well as its virtues. He led a life of frequent privation, and, main ly through unlucky business specula tions-, incurred a burden of debt which harassed him to the end of his career. : The amount of work he got through was enormous, and he represents him- ' .self as working regularly for fifteen, [and even eighteen, hours a day. He took cotfee to keep himself awake, and wrote and wrote till he was ut terly exhausted, all the time being'in the condition of a tracked hare, har assed and pursued by his creditors? and knowing that all his gains must go to them—a most uninviting state of affairs. | He concocted the wildest schemes for making money; but when these...

LITTLE BOBBIE'S PA. By William F. Kirk. I haven't quitd made up my mind yet whether Bobbie shud leru-a trade ! or a professhun, sed -ua to Pa yester day. Sumtimes I think it wud be nice J if he cud lern a trade, & aggenn I think a trade is kind of commonplace. A professhun is so professhunai, sum how, so. distinguished, Bed Ma. I gues there are a lot of yung law yers in the big cities that doau't see anything very professhunai about a professhun, sed Pa. If I were a yung man aggenn, Pa sed, I wud a lot ra ther work steddy at a trade than pro fess at a professhun. Bobble, what do you want to be?

Don't Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
Don't Trouble. 'J. here is a saying old and ruaty (But good as any new); "TIb, "Never trouble trouble Till trouble troubles you." Don't you borrow sorrow— You'll surely have your sbafa He who dreams o£ sorrow Will find that sorrow's there, I£ care you've got to carry, Wait till 'tis at the door; For he who runs to meet it . Tafcea up the load before. If minding will not mend it, Then better not to mind; The best thing is to end it— .. Just leave it all behind: Then dun't you trouble trouble - Till trouble troubles you; You'll only double trouble, And trouble others too.
Quite Simple. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
Quite Simple.' Boston Five-Year-Old: Father, what is the exact meaning of the verse beginning "Jack Sprat could eat no > fat"? Father: In simple terms it is as follows: Jack Sprat could assimilate no adipose tissue'. His wife, on the other lhand, possessed an . aversion for the more muscular portions of ■> epithelium. And so between them both, you see, they removed all the ; foreign substances from the surface o£ that utilitarian utensil "commonly called a platter. Does that make it clear, son? Boston Five-Year-Old: Perfectly, father. The lack of lucidity in these Mother Goose rhymes is amazingly apparent. s
GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. The world, they say, is gettin' old an" weary as can be, But write me down as. sayin!, It's good.enough for me! It's good enough, with all its1 grief, its pleasure, and its pain, An' there'B a ray of sunshine* for every drop of rain! E The stumble in the lonesome dark, they cry for light to see," But write me down as sayin', It's. light enough for me! It's light enough to lead us on, from where we faint and fall, An' the hilltop nearest heaven wears tne brightest crown of all. They talk about the fadin' hopes'that mock the ears to be, But write me down as sayin' There's hope enough for me. Over the old world's wailin', the sweetest music swells, In the stormiest night I listen and hear the bells—the 'bells! This world o' God's is brighter than - we ever dreamed to know; Its burden's growin' lighter an*, it's love that makes it so. An' I'm thankful that I'm livin' when love's blessedness I see, :' 'Neath a heaven that's forglvin' when the bells ring home to me.

SOFT VOICE—A WONDERFUL CHARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
SOFT VOICE—A WONDERFUL CHARM. A voice, sweet, resonant, expressive, is one of the greatest charme that may fall to the lot oE or be acquired by any one. A voice which has not been die- j j ciplined or cultivated is like an untut I ored savage on whose tranquillity no | reliance can be placed. It follows every i | mood and often belies the intensity of | I the latter, becoming harsh and loud . when its possessor is only slightly irri- ( tated, or strident and boisterous when ; she is only ordinarily merry. When you have learned to subdue . your voice tendencies in this direction I then begin the development of ita at tractive qualities'. If you are not so situated as to be able to benefit from scientific cultivation you may, aided by a few hints, train your voice to a pleasing modulation without profes sional assistance. I Speech is as musical as song, and its ' compass is normally the same. The do- . minant note ie always near the mid dle of the compass and is the one on ' which the...
CHAPTER XXII. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
CHAPTER XXII. Behind the scenes the entire stags was seething with excitement, like a disturbed ants' neBt.' * A subdued murmur o£ voices vm buzzing, "What is the matter?" Let us go back to the end of the act—to that moment when the Mrs Appieton of the play, having risen from -her settee and turned on the lights, encountered Rosa at the door. ■Lady Pettigew was already upset at what she imagined to have been an unnecessary stage wait. She gazed at Angela in an astonishment 6he was obliged to check; the girl seemed to be in a dazed condition; her eyes bad lost their light and col or; her breath came in painful gasps; in the heat of the moment Lady Petti gew whispered— "Are you tipsy, Angela? You've kept the stage waiting." I Then, as already related. Lady Pet-j tigew went to the escritoire; and, partly acting and partly ia earnest, she was amazed to 6ee one of her 3ewels lying at her feet, crushed and mangled, as if it bad been trodden upon. There was no sign of the oth ers. it had b...
A COMPLIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
A COMPLIMENT. This romantic incident in the early history of Madame de Miramion is re lated by Monsieur Aime Duroc in his study oE "Woman in Philanthropy"— "Marie de Ruhelle, born in 1629, was married at sixteen; before she was seventeen she was left a widow. Her high position, her great estates, her wealth; her sweetness, her lovely face and manners brought her many suit . ors. But she was already dissatisfied witb the life of a court lady, and had set her heart upon religion and char ity, against the idea of a second mar riage. "But one of her suitors, Roger, Count da Bussy-Ratubin, handsome, popular, and rich, was so far self-de celved by his vanity that he believed her coldness only assumed, perhaps to please her late huBband's relatives. He was convinced that, given the ex cuse of apparent force, she would wil lingly marry him; and he readily per suaded his gay friends at court to share his belief and join him in the rash adventure of carrying off a lady. "On her way to church ...
THE GREAT MAN. In Public. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
THE GREAT MAN. In Public. "My friends, it lias been my happy privilege to be useful in many ways, and to contribute what I could to the public good. It Is every man's duty to do that, and I do not want to take any credit to myself for anything that I have done, the gratification of feel ing that I litive been helpful to my fellow-men being all the reward I ask. It has been my privilege to come into close association with many of the most distinguished men of the world, anil to have had. many, .of them for my close friends, and, while this has been a privilege and a pleasure, it has given me no greater gratification than I feel in standing before you to night, for the common people are, af ter all, quite as useful as those of us who through accident or otherwise find ourselves in the mora exalted positions in life. "I quite agree with my old friend, Andrew Carnegie, that But I did not come before you to-night to apeak of myself or of the many good causes to which I have given my supp...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. "Smiler" Hales, now "Times" corre spondent in South America, was re puted to be a purple writer in patches, but his spelling was the most livid in all Australia. Androe Hayward was at his desk one night when "Smiler" look ed over and said: "How do you 8p»il 'graphic'? With one T or two?"1 "Well," eaid the kindly Hayward, who was too gentle to hurt even a com mon adjective, "if you are going to use any, 'Smiler' I guess you might as well go the limit." —Perth "Sunday Times." Story tola by Jim Hanley, of Boul der, on a towney or his: — "An old man, nearly eighty years- old, walked ten miles from hia home to an ad- f joining town. "When he reached his i destination he was greeted with soriie i astonishment by an acquaintance, j "You walked all the way?" the latter | exclaimed. "How did you get along? i "Oh, first rate," the old man replied, I genially. "That is, I did till I came to | that sign out there, 'Slow down to fif teen miles ail hour.' That kept me back s...
An Up-to-Date Girl. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
An Up-to-Date Girl. It was after her birthday, and the little maid of eight was Bitting dis consolately by the nursery window. "Aren't you going to play with your new doll?" asked her mother, with a side glance at the discarded present. "No," said the little girl: "I thought you liked her eo. Don't you?" "No." "Oh, but you wanted a nice dolly. One that talked, didn't you?" No response. /, 1 "And this one says, 'Ma-ma!' 'Pa pa!'" ' . The little maid's eyes flashed and sparkled as she replied: "I want a doll that says 'Votes for women.'" Wo are most'of us willing to ac knowledge that we have been fools— seldom that wo are fools. .

BATH FOR EYEGLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 14 November 1913
BATH FOR EYEGLASSES. Do you ever give your eyeglasses a •bath? If not, give them a surprise and see how you like the result. . Especially In summer, when damp ness and dust form a gummy combin ation on the eyelashes, the wearer of glasses or spectacles will find his vis ion, apparently, much improved by giving them a thorough washing dally ■with soap and warm water, followed ■by drying and poliphing with tissue •paper. The gummy substance which ■collects on the lenses in hot weather cannot be removed by a mere rubbing with chamois or tissue paper, and the more humid the day, the more neces sary becomes the eyeglasB bath. An oculist, who knows the import ance of well-washed lenses, carries in his pocket a vial of alcohol. It takes :but a moment to moisten the corner of a handkerchief and remove the combination of dust and moisture from his glasses. Another business than has the case of his glasses inter .lined with a folded bit of soft tissue, such as is used for copying letters In o...
