"Ah. well, I don't blame you, old fellow! Wish I had your resolution. But, then, it's not a matter of resolution alto gether; you haven't acquired tht habit. I have—up to the hilt—it's a disease with me. Know it's bad? Cer tainly I do. What medical man does not? I know it's killing m» I know It will land me in my grav« eventual ly; but I can't fight it—the disease has too strong a hold. Do you know, I have more than once laid in a big stock of cigarettes for e long voyage, and after being a few days out, slung . the whole lot overboard—a sterling silv...
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-DIN. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
WILY OLD NASIR-EL-D1N. One day Nasir-el-din ascended the pulpit of the mosque, and thus ad dressed the congregation: "Oh, true believers! do you know what I am going to say to you?" "No," responded the congregation. "Well, then," said he, "there is no use of my wasting my time on such an ignorant set." And so saying, lie came down from the pulpit. He went to preach a second time, and asked the congregation: "Oh, trno ibelievers, do you know what I am going to say to you?" "We know," replied the audience. "Then it is no use of my telling vou," said Nasir-el-din, and again he descended from the pulpit. When he came next to preach, and asked his usual question, the congre gation, resolved to have a trial of his powers, answered: "Some of us know, and some of us do n t know." "O!" said Nasir-el-din, "let those who know tell those who do not know, and I shall be spared the trouble o" preaching," and again he came down from the pulpit.

SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
SELFRIDGE'S MAXIMS. "To travel hopefully is better than to arrive; and- the true success is-la^ b r." These words, written by Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, hang above the desk of Mr. H. Gordon Selfridge, head o£ the enormous store in Oxl'ord 3treet, and they provide the keynote of the character of the man, who, starting l.fe as a shop-sweeper, made such good use of his opportunities that by the time he was thirty he was partner in the Marshall Field Store ill vJLicago—a store which has earned joint fortunes for its owners amount ing to over £100,000,000. Mr. Selfritlgo is a man who believes in maxims, and he has framed a num ber for his own guidance. They cer tainly point the way to success for •.he young business man. Here are a few of his favorite ones: — "The cult of thoroughness is one of the strongest factors in success." "If an assistant has received in structions to perform a certain task ae should try to find even a better way than that he has been told." "Imagination should p...

HEALTH NOTE* Adenoid*. Among the papers read at the Inter aatlonal Congress on School Hygiene recently was one by Doctor Hagelln, of Nykopfng, In Sweden.

Fat in the Diet. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
Fat In the Diet. Physiological considerations would Imply that many minor ills of the body would be avoided if only care were taken to include a sufficiency of fat in the diet. Fat, we know, is about the most compact form of fuel which we possess, while it exercises a' favor able effect upon the processes of the Intestinal tract. In excessively cold countries a rich, fatty diet Is lndis pensable, for fat is the only food sub stance which, will rapidly replace the heat lost by the body, and travellers in the Arctic regions have related that they could only be kept warm and com fortable by a generous supply of fatty food, in comparison with which the effect of extra clothing was inappre ciable. The tendency of to-day In many quarters is to exclude as much as possible the fatty portions of ani mal foods. Pieces of fat are carefully cut off the slice of ham, mutton, or beef, and only the lean parts are eaten. Indeed, for Borne unaccount able reason, the eating of fat is re garded by not...
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. It is an ancient belief that the nose indicates ancestry. We speak about the aristocratic nose with its high bridge and the plebeian nose of the toiler. Certainly, in a great many cases, race can be distinguished by the nose. The Hebrew could hardly be confused" with the typical negro nose. The highly-arclied nose is sup posed to indicate tendency to rule, and the flattened nose shows servil ity. There are several' classes of noses, if we are to take the word of physi ognor ists. The Roman nose Indicates executive ability. Its owner is the i aggressive person, the conqueror. Portraits show that the ancient war ri rs had this type of nose. The Ro mans were trained especially for deeds or valor. The modern owner I of such a nose will achieve success, be a leader, perhaps not in a 'battle I for blood, but in business or profes sional life. The woman with this n se may btain social leadership if chooses that rather than some other line of achievement. The Gre...
SUNSHINE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
SUNSHINE AT HOME. Something I own that wealth cannot buy, And not offered for sale on the mart; Something for which the great often sigh With an unhidden void in the heart; Something possessed by one little " spot In a corner I know on earth's - loam, ; Waiting for me in a neat, cosy cot, 'Tisa sweet, loving smile in,my •home. When all the world is dreary and cold, And the clouds darkly hang o'er the way; Friendship and honor purchased with, gold, And a world seems to win - to he tray; Still one fond thought thro' shadows will shine, As I back to that humble cot roam-, Feeling as rich as a wealth-laden mine. With a sweet, loving smile in my home. When that bright scene shall vanish and fade Into visions of heaven b.eyond— And earth grow dim in death's misty shade, With the forms so . loving . and fond— Yet will remain for ever in mind, Though afar in the heaven's broa.d dome, T'e sweet, happy face, loving and kind, With the smile that awaits me at home.
A FORGOTTEN PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
I A FORGOTTEN PAST. I By H. J. BICKLB. The Coronation Theatre was pack ed from stalls to gallery with a vast audience whoat absorbed attention seemed fixed almost breathlessly upon j the stage. A big -scene was in pro 'gress, a ecene handled with fine dra matic skill, a situation that thrilled the house. It was the iirst night o£ a new play, | the first appearance of a new actress, and both were creating a wonderful impression. And now, in this tense, I dramatic moment, when the woman j on the stage, a tragic figure, with pale i face and haunting eyes, stood battling with a crisis in her life, the picture that she made lived in the memory j long after. At the end of the last act the cur | tain was lifted again and again; ap plause, long sustained, echoed through . *he br.iklh.F; an extraordinary scene | of enthusiasm prevailed. She came in answer to that clamor-' | ous call and bowed her thanks many j times—Iris Wolde, the new dramatic | star, a new queen of the stage, who ' had con...
PUSHER OR PULLER. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
PUSHER OR PULLER. Sir Oliver Lodge claims that there is no such thing as pull applied to bod ies; .that is, that an engine, for in stance, never pulls a train, but really pushesit. A little excursion Into what he means will readily convince the sceptical that he is right. Take this example: The couplings of the en gine extend behind that of the car , following and does actually shove it | forward. The reason it comes for ward is because its parts do not se parate; that is, it has cohesion. But the actual force administered is that of a push and not a pull. Take a rope pulling a safe up to a window; i it is wrapped under the safe, and that i is the part that is exerting the force ; and urging the safe upward, the other ; parts of the rope simply sticking to gether. When we pull our coats off we really push them off, for the force is exerted behind the object in the di- ; rection of the motion, and, as every one knows, that is called push.
THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
THE MILLENNIUM. When the last liobble skirt is for gotten, And the last new fad has been tried: When the pannier fashion has faded And the' "hipless" craze has died We shall rest, and faith, we 6hall need it— Be at peace for a season or two, Till the next freak of folly arises To torture our souls anew. And those that survive shall be happy. They shall fling away pounds of hair; They shall sit all day without aching, At ease in a rocking chair; They shall wear their own faces and figures, They shall walk a3 far as they please, And he able to cross a puddle Without sprawling on hands and knees. And few of the men will praise them. And none will admire the sight; For no one will dress for fashion, And no one for man's delight; But each for her own sweet comfort, And each in her own sweet way. Shall wear the thing that she wishes, But the gods will weep that day.

THE HAPPY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 16 July 1914
THE HAPPY MAN. Two men sat in the lobby of an hotel the other night, arguing vocifer ously, while a third man smoking a long and costly cigar, listened to the argument with a calm, comfortable, serene air. The argument was about happiness. The men claimed, for different rea sons, that it was impossible to be per fectly happy—or, as one of them put it: "No fallible human being is capable of so forgetting life's trials and tribu lations, or bo withdrawing, so to say, from his defective mortal entity, as to become completely possessed, (even for a moment, with a sense of perfect happiness." The speaker turned to the man who was smoking the long, expensive cigar so comfortably. "Don't you agree to that, sir?" he asked. The other flicked off his ash, with a chuckle. "Gentlemen," he said, "I am perfect ly happy now." "What!" cried the first speaker. "You mean to say you are perfectly happy—enrapt in the present moment —oblivious of all the troubles of the universe? Perfectly happy—come— n...
