The Useful Reindeer. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
The Useful Reindeer. 4 In sub-Arctic countries the rein deer takes the place of ox, sheep, and horses. It gives milk, meat, and clothing, and is a good beast of burden. From- the milk the Laplander makes a cheese. It is true that those who havo tasted it do not praiso it; they, sny it is hard, and rank of taste. But that may be due to bad cheese-making. At any rate, reindeer-inilk checso is tho Laplander's chief food during the long winters of the North. In the summer he lives on a frugal diet of curds and whey. He makes no but ter, but the Finlanders do ; it is of a very palo colour-nearly white. At tho end of the summer tho reindeer becomcs very fat, and tho flesh is excellent. It is regarded as the greatest delicacy by their own ers-a delicacy to which they treat themselves only on Tare occasions, the reindeer has tho tliickost skin of nil northern nnimnls, and tho warmest for clothing. . As draught mutual?, the reindeer are used not only for drawing tho sloighs in winter but for...
A BALLAD. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
A BALLAD. I "You aro old, Father William," tho young man sold, "And your hair has become very white ; And yet you incessantly stand on your head Do you think, at your age, it is right ?". "In my youth," Father William re plied to his son, "I feared it might injure tho brnin; But now that I'm perfectly sura I have none, Why, I do it ngain and again." "You are old," said the youth, " as I mentioned before. And have grown most uncommonly fat; Yet you turned n back-somersault in at the door Pray, what is the reason of that ?" "In my youth," said the sage, as lie shook his grey locks, "I kept all my limbs very supplo By the use of this ointment-one shilling the box Allow me to sell you a couple ?" "You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws aro too weak i For anything tougher than suet ; Yet you finished tho goose, with tho bones and the beiik Tray, how did you manage to. do it - "Jn my youth," said his father, "I took to the law.

Strathcona's Cheque. During his lifetime the late Lord Stratheona made two boasts-one that ho never lost .a paper onco it got into his hands, and. the other: that he never received payment for his services to tho Canadian Pacific Kailway.

Big Wars from Little Causes. TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
* Big Wars from Little Causes. j . f . TRIFLES WHICH HAVE COST THOUSANDS OF LIVES. While, of courso, important prin ciples and interests aro involvod, the fact remains tliat America's ul timatum to Mexico was tho direct outcome of lluerta's rctusnl to lire tho snluto demanded of twenty one guns. It seems an absurd trifle for two countries to sncrifico human lifo for. Tho affair, however, pro vides but another illustration of the manner in which little sparks some times bring about big international blazes. Tho war in which wo lost til United States, for example, began because tho citizens of Boston emp tied a numher of tea-cliesls into Bos ton harbour. They objected to hav ing their tea taxed for tho benefit of England, and showed their l'o sentment by tipping It into tho sea. The result wo3 that hostilities bo gau at once. And it was really bocause a few people lost their heads In the ex citement of the moment that South Carolina began the war between North and South In America. Wh...

ART'S BRUTALITY., j -"I know Amos -comes In for a lot of praise because ho hunts with a camera, instead of a gun," Forbes began in a slightly acrid tone. "It never seems to striko people that thero may bo more than one kind of brutality." "What's the matter with Ames 1" demanded one of-his elubmates." The Meanings of somo of tho New Air. Terms Illus trated (A) A V Volplane." (U) A " Nose Dive," (C) A Pancake." (D) A Slide Slip." "Out in Canada last autumn," Forbes resumed, "I went olT by my self one day, when Ames was fid dling over his kodak, and I stum bled full ou a black bear. Be cause I was the only thing in sight, very likely, J became the immediate object of her attentions. , I had only a slight lend, but I was go ing pretty well whon Ames poked through tho brush and took in tlio situation. " 'Hold on there, old chap !' he yelled. . You'ro too far ahead. J can't get you both in." "
The New Language of the Air. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914
The New Language of the Air. I A new nnd very picturesque Inn gunge is being coined from En# j lish and French words nnd odd bits of slang, to describe tho various activities of the 'airmen and tho draft in which they navigate the nir, A "seaplane," "water-plane," "hy droplnn;," or "water 'bus," to give it a few of its names, is a flying machine fitted with floats so that it can rise from and return to tho water. To "taxi" means to dash along the surface until the speed is suffi cient to rise. The "pusher" is a biplane with tho propellor behind the planes. To "stall" a machine is bad'nmidship, and menus that tho machino is dri ven skyward at too steep an angle so that it flies tail downwards and loses its balance, which may end in a bad sideslip. The " bat" boat is a biplane with a boat shaped body instead of floats. A "nose dive'' is a sheer drop often caused by nn accident to a portion of tho 'machine, usually ending in a 1 fatal smash. To "climb" is to riso ut tho correct nngle s...

A SHRINKING SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914
A SHRINKING SEA. The surface of the Caspian, which lies 88ft. below sea level, has, sincc Juno, 1910, been continually sink ing, without a plausible explana tion having hitherto been found. No great importance was at first attached to the phenomenon, but the shrinkage went on, and is now even beginning to be inconvenient for navigation, as steamers in many places cannot reach the landing stages. It is believed that the river water flowing into tlie sea is not suffi cient to make good the loss caused by evaporation. The State Militia, acting upon the orders of tho Governor to stop gambling on the Tulsa Jlacecourse, recently fired a volley over the heads of the riders as they came down the straight. None of the riders were injured, but the race was bro ken up. Tho adjutant-general said that if another race was run he would order the soldiers to. shoot down the horses.

A Dominie to the Japs. » Jin. A. LOTON MUG Ell, F.R.O.S., GIVES HIS EXPERIENCES. ..Wlmt is that big building over there ?" I asked my companion, is we walked down the Glnza in 1o* Ho "No 1" ho replied, with a sagacious nod. "What-is-that-big -building-over-there ?" I repeat ed, with painstaking simplicity. "Indeed !" was tho answer. With patience only born from long ex-1 nerience, I repeated my question tor tho third time. "So?" this time was tho response. I thereupon cave it up. And this pupil was one in ft uni versity class to which I was en gaged in teaching English, and was compelled by the curriculum to teach from de Quincey's "I-ectures of War." Waif it to be wondered at that I surreptitiously substituted something lighter? Incidentally, I nearly got tho sack for my pains ! Japan is education mad-and, worse still, system mad. All tho tenehers-or "prolessors," as we are called-teach on some system. I horrified the president of one institution by replying to his query jvs to wha...

The First Cigars. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914
The First Cigars. j The cigar is now so common an object that we hardly realise how recently it came into use. A letter of Kobert Bloomfield, the author o[ "The Farmer's Boy," dated May 21, 1803, Rives us what is probably the approximate date of its introduc tion. "I spent two hours yesterday," writes the shoemaker poet, "in the big house at the corner of Clarges street, in company of the Duke. His Grace gave me three segars, one of which I then smoaked, carrying the others away in my pocket. His Grace tells me this style of smoak ing is much in favour with French men and Spaniards, and that it is the great cost of segars that stands in the way of their use here. I do not account three segars with a pipeful of good, honest tobacco," The cigarette came in much later. Jn the early sixties, cigarettes were only smoked (in England) by for eigners or Britons who had acquir ed the habit while residing abroad. The first English cigarettes were stained brown, to imitate the to bacco-leaf, a...

THE FIRST STTT.AMEK TO JllOSS THE ATLANTIC. The Savannah, a 350-ton brig, was built for the packet service be tween Havre and Now York. Moses Rogers, afterwards captain of the Savannah, prevailed upon a &rn of shippers in America to purchase her, and fit her out as a steam ship with a single low-prcssuro en gino of about DO horse-power. The voyago really commenced from Now York, but the vessel coasted round | to Savannah as a preliminary trial | trip. I On May 23, 1819, tho Sa\annah I set out on her daring venture. The following month the columns of tho "Georgian" had a very curious para graph to the effect that a schooner | had arrived At Newbury Port, the commander stating that on May 2'.) he had sighted a vessel from which volumes of smoke were issu ing. Judging it to bo a vessel on fire, they bore up to render aid, but soon found she went faster with fire and smoke than the schooner with all her sails set. Again she was reported ns a ship on fire, from tho telegraph stat...
A MEXICAN ROYAL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914
A MEXICAN ROYAL TUAUEDY. On May 19# 1804, Maximilian, the handsome, blue-eyed, fair-teardel brother of the Austrian Emperor, made his proud entry into the capi tal of Mexico,, the land over which he had been chosen by Napoleon lo rule. There was no portent on that glorious day to hint at. the tragedy which was to close his reign and his life within three short years. It had been from r»o lack of warn ing that he had jjccepted t*he crown jof Mexico as the puppet of the designing" Napoleon. Hltf brother, the Austrian Emperor, and every member of the Koyal House had warned him of the perils ho would encounter; but his wife, a Belgian Princess, had scolYod at his fe?u\s. It was not long, however, beforo Mexico was seething with rebellion, and Maximilian's throne was totter ing to its fwU. Then, thoroughly nlnmiwl, the Kmpred-t ChnrJolto bade her husband hold his throne while she started for Europe to supplicate Napoleon's help.

AN EPOCK-MAKING BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914
AN EPOCK-MAKING BOOK. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was publish ed on March 20, 1852. The author Mrs. Beecher Stowe, was despond ent as to "whether anybody would read or attend to her appeal" on behalf of the enslaved negroes &lt;V the States. She was agreeably dis appointed both in a moral and fi nancial sense, for 10.000 copies sold in a fe\\&lt; days,' and over &lt;J00, 000 within a twelvemonth. Running night nnd day, the ;-rint ing presses could barely meet the demand. It was not only read, but remembered and pondered over. The pity, the distress, the indigna tion long petit up in the writer's soul passed from her into the mil lions of readers of the book. The nation's conscience was awakened. .John Brown was the first, but by no means the least, American to lay down his life for the cause of the negro freedom. A mighty civil war shook the Union to its very foun dations ; but the United States sur vived the fiery ordeal intact, nnd fin ally took her place among the...
