Foal Breath The old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For ; instance it makes little &ifferenoe how beautiful a woman may -be, or how charming her manner, if faer breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo- , man arouses in man a feeling of re- 1 pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for , every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint Is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled •with this compla...

A Repeat Order. One evening a very shy yonng fel low took his sweetheart for a walk along a Bhady country road. They walked for about half a mile in si lence, looking sideways at each oth er, when, suddenly, the big fellow put his arm around her waist and kissed , her. Neither spoke, but both walked on as before. Then the girl said: "Jimmy, you scared me." "Did I?" he answered. They walked on for fifteen minutes | more, when the girl, giving a gentle tug to his arm, said: "Jimmy, I wish yon would scare me «f<«* 0 And he did! "I make it a rule," said a wiseacre to his friend, "to tell my wife every thing that happens. In this way we avoid any misunderstandings."

THE WOULD BE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 June 1914

THE WOULD BE MEN. Many women have wished to be men, but It is rare, Indeed, for a man to wish that his sex were different Not long since a scientific experimen ter invited a number of ladies to re cord their Impressions on the subject. With but few' exceptions each of the women owned to the longing to change her sex, but the reasons given were eurlous and instructive. One wished to be a man so that she might earn double the salary for the same amount of work; another, be cause, being fond of horses, she would like to be a jockey; a third, because she could come and go as she pleased; a fourth lady because she is passion ately fond of machinery, and Is ambi tious to be a machinist or engineer. In short, as the experimenter re marked, what women mainly envy in men's lives is the fuller liberty and the greater opportunities in general which the male sex enjoys.

A well-known general, in reviewing a corps of cavalry, suddenly stopped before $ splendid-looking follow, and aBked abruptly: "Which la the best horse in the regi ment, my man?" "Number 40, sir." "What makes you think that ha is th§ best horse?" "He walks, trots, and gallops well; is a good leaper, has no vice, no blem ish, carries h|s head well, is in his prime." . "And who is the best soldier in the regiment?" "Tom Bodgers, sir." "Why?" "Because he is an honorable man, is obedient, tidy, takes good care of hla equipment and his horse, and does hi3 duty well." "And who is the rider of the best horse?" "Tom Bodgers, sir." "And who is Tom Bodgers?" ''I am, sir." The general could not help laugh ing, but he gave a sovereign to his in formant.

WHAT A MILLION POUNDS. REPRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 June 1914

WHAT A MILLION POUNDS . REPRESENTS. We thiRk and talk in millions now adays, little realising what a million pounds represents (says a writer in an exchange). Take the following ex amples:—Assuming that Adam was created 6000 years ago, bad received £3 per week from birth, and saved the whole of it, without paying for food, clothes, or lodgings, he would not bp a millionaire to-day. Again: Suppose a man?, started at 20 years of age. to earn a million pounds, he must sp.ve (exclusive of living expen ses) £20,000 per annum for 50 years, I.e., £6(5. per day for 3300 days in each „ year. Is the labor of any man worth any such sum? Oji the other hand, . suppose a man :at 20 years of age In herits £ 20,000,000, and invests it at 10 per cent, compound interest; in 50 years his capital would exceed the total annual national income of £1,800,000,000, equivalent to 9000 per cent Increase in fifty years.
