PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914

PROCRASTINATION. At the temperance meeting and con cert, Brother Slanks arose and started to give a recitation. Brother Slanks was a long nervous youth. The recol lection of the applause which had greeted the previous items on the programme served but to damp his ardor and make him regret the hour when he promised to speak a piece. It was a mixed audience, moreover, and critical withal, particularly in the rear of the hall. Brother Slanks got along all right until he reached the words, "He stood beside the bier!" Then his memory failed him. "He stood beside the bier!" he repeated, trembling. The evil spirits on the back benches mur mured one to another. "He stood be side the bier!" groaned Slanks, and drew a moist hand across his dripping forehead. "Go on!" yelled a voice from the rear, go on—It'll get flat while you're waiting, you fool!" In the uproar that followed, Brother Slanks fled from the platform, tearing out his hair in bagfuls. To be tactful and truthful, ono must often n...

CHAPTER XL. The Reason Why. | "But surely all the pictures are heirlooms?" I-Ierepath suggested. "Not this one. Nor were the others that Player had to sell for me. They belonged to my mother, and came to me in her will. Jly mother was my father's cousin, and she originally brought the Raeburn from her side of the house. But I see there are cer tain things that require an explana tion. Where can we go to discuss them ?" "What better place can you have than my brother-in-law's house?" Ilerepath suggested. '"It is close by, and Enid is there. Madame Desterre is not a mile away, and the same re mark applies to Gilray. It should be quite a pleasant party." Southlands curtly indicated his ap proval. They walked on side by side in silence till the old house was reached. Out on the balcony in the warm and peaceful night were seat ed Gay and his wife with Enid.

HIS LIFE FOR FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914

HIS LIFE FOR FRANCE. "We will ram all hostile aircraft." That is the vow taken by French and Belgian aviators, the first man to car ry out the vow being the famous French aviator Garros, who is reported to have been killed through ramming a German Zeppelin airship over Toul, in French territory. Garros in his aeroplane dashed head long against the airship. The envel ope was penetrated and the mammoth airship was dashed to earth, all the occupants being killed. The aeroplane also fell, and the intrepid Frenchman was killed. Garros was one of the world's most daring airmen. He flew from TuniB to Rome across the Mediterranean, and in 1912 at Trouville he attained a height of 16,450 feet, and had to volplane down as his engine failed. At Tunis in the same year he reached a height of 17,400 feet. Last year he received the Legion of Honor. Garros' heroic feat was followed by that of a Belgian aviator, who at a height of 1,500 feet charged a German aeroplane as it flew over Liege, cut ting...

That Cured Him. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914

That Cured Him. George was one o£ those bright young fellows given to the use of slang. At the tea table the other day he required the milk. "Chase the cow this way, please," he said. "Mary," said his mother, "take the cow down to where the calf is bawl ing." Love is the sugar that takes the b'tter taste out of life. You may know all about relative values, and yet be unable to value your relatives. An old farmer in Ayrshire had a habit of feigning deafness when he wanted to avoid answering an awk ward question. One day a neighbor said to him:— "I'd like to borrow your cart this morning. Mine is having a spring mended." "You'll have to speak louder," the old farmer answered. "I don't hear very well—and I don't like to lend my cart anyhow." It shocks a young man's heart ter ribly when, in walking romantically with his girl along the seashore, mak ing remarks anent the waves, etc., she exclaims, with irrepressible enthusi asm, "Oh, Henry, how the foam does resemble the froth on a glass...

DRINK UNDER THE PULPIT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 14 November 1914

DRINK UNDER THE PULPIT. Residents oE Bellevue East, South Africa, are enjoying a joke at the ex pense of a Presbyterian congregation whose church is situated not a thou sand miles from that district. Temperance above all things has been preached in the church with un failing insistence from the pulpit. Lately some people living in the neighborhood were interested in the fact that there was always a large number of Kaffirs about the church in little knots and clusters, and at last someone—a trifle more curious chan the rest—asked if there were not a native mission or chapel at tached to the church. This not being the case, it became difficult to ac count Cor the presence of the na tives, to whom one would hardly suppose a Presbyterian clrarch. for Europeans to be an object of par ticular interest or attraction. No doubt the church officials were puzzled, and so they set to work to solve the mystery. The solution is alike tragic, humorous and simple. While the evils of drink and the v...
