BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

BIOGRAPH AND THE PRESS. Movies to Train Reporters. The Columbia School of Journal ism has Introduced a new method of training their embryo journalists. Mo tion pictures will be shown to the stu dents in the future, and they will be required to write them up as if they had actually seen the events m real life represented on the screen. The first pictures to be used were three reels of the Balkan War films. In this way the faculty hopes to be able to train the scholars in accurate observation in reporting the events aa they happen. In 'explaining the reason for adopt ing motion pictures to train students in journalism, Dr. Talcott Williams, director of the School of Journalism, said: — "In adopting the new experiment in education the School of Journalism hopes to overcome its greatest ob - stacle, that of giving the students practice in reporting actual events, and at the same time making it pos sible for the instructors to know how accurately and thoroughly the work has been done.

Throat Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

Throat Troubles. When doctors talk about the "naso pharyngeal system," they mean the entire mucous membrane that lines the nose and throat, all of which must toe in a healthy condition if you wish to avoid the long list of ailments that begins with the common "cold" and ends with tuberculosis, and includes tonsilitis, influenza, croup, diphtheria, and, last but not least, adenoids. In young children the passages of the nose and throat are very small and very sensitive, and they respond quickly to every change in the child's physical condition. When a disease germ attacks a sensitive mucous membrane, the membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The immediate result. is that the child cannot get breath enough to live on through the nasal passages, and begins to breathe through the mouth. If this, happens only occasionally the inflammation soon subsides and 'the mouth-breath ing stops. But if one cold succeed another, as is the case with many children in the winter months, the mu cous me...

A Surgeon's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

f A Surgeon's Revenge. Few things vex a doctor more than to be sent for in great haste at an unreasonable hour, only to find upon arival that little or nothing is the matter with the patient. An eminent English surgeon was called to an "urgent case" of this sort, and he found the patient, who was of great wealth but small courage, had received a slight wound from a fall. The surgeon's face did not betray his irritation, but he gave his servant or ders to go home with all possible haste, and return with a certain plas ter. The patient, turning very pale, said-anxiously: "I trust, sir, there is no great and immediate danger?" "Indeed there is," answered the sur geon. "Why, if that fellow does not run like a racehorse, there is no tell ing but that your wound may heal before lie gets back with the plaster."

UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. To place- an umbrella in a rack at a club or a friend's house is a sign that it is about to change owners. To see two walking under one um brella, the drippings falling on the male shoulder, is a good sign of an engagement, while if the female shoul der catches the drippings we may safely conclude they are married. An umbrella held in the manner of a golf-club in a main thoroughfare at 1 a.m. is a sign that the glass has risen, but a storm is brewing. An umbrella in "uncle's" window in dicates that someone has had a "rainy" day. The very best thing worth living for is to be of use. The child nvho is taught this both by precept and ex ample, will never grow up to find time hang heavy on his hands.

REASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

REASSURANCE. "Before you ask," she calmly spoke— "Dear, listen to this word; You're not the first man I have loved, Nor second—nay, nor third." "Am I the fourth or fifth," he asked In scorn; "or were there more?" She murmured, "Don't be vexed, sweetheart, "For, as I said 'before, "This love is not my first—but, hark!" He felt her gentle touch— "I promise it will be my last; "Now—can you say as much?" "You are my darling girl," he cried, And bowed his manly head Upon her hand—"My love — my bride!" But—that was all he said!

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

MORAL REFLECTIONS. An obedient wife commands her husband. Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but yourself. Obstinacy is a parasite, living eith er on a strong will or on great stu pidity. Retire into thyself, and thou wilt blush to find how poor a stock is there. A man has no more right to say an uncivil thing than to act one—no more right to say a rude thing to an other "than to knock him down. Men are like trees; each one must put forth the leaf that is created in him. Education is only like good Cul ture it changes the size but not the sort. To know the pains of power we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures we must go to those who are seeking it. The pains of power are real, its pleasures imaginary. In the active and vigorous games and merriment of children there are the most health giving conditions that can be obtained, because they are the wise combination of exercise and mirth. "Almost" is a dangerous word. It has tripped up many a man who might have been ...

Well Qualified. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

Well Qualified. The late Lord Young, at a civic gathering, asked who the gentleman with such a very red nose might be. "Oh! that's the new water engin eer," was the answer. "A most judicious appointment," remarked Lord Young. "I should say that's the man who could he trusted with any amount of water!" Try to make yourself a well-loved and popular member of the home circle, and the chances are that you will be popular with other people, too. When we give way to our tempers, our relations must sometimes wish, as Mrs. Poyser did, that we could be "hatched over again and hatched dif ferent." "wive me your beliefs; I have doubts enough <Jf my own," said Goethe. Most people are in much the same case where moroseness and gloom are concerned; they have quite enough of their own without being asked to help bear yours or mine. It isn't what he knows, but what he thinks he knows, that a man brags about; great talk generally means little knowledge. '

The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

The Bull Didn't Know. A story is told of a great English, personage who thought everybody knew or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a 'bull addressed him in an undertone, and made for him with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. He was a Minister, a man of dignity and of political power. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for office, and he got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull contem plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an infur iated animal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the- farmer^ "Right? Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" said the farmer.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. The Panama Canal, although not of ficially opened, is already being used by ships, and waterborne traffic is passing through the canal. Thus, after ten years of labor and at a cost of over £ SO,000,000 the Atlantic and Pacific are united by a waterway with a minimum depth of 41 feet. The ad vantages gained by countries upon the Pacific by the construction of the canal are of great value, and the shortening of many trade routes is of infinite importance to the world in general. In centuries past the IstJnnus sent Rich galleons to ancient Spain, And later De Lesseps, the gold of France Poured out in her lap in vain. She seemed like a land of woe and death, Accursed by an evil star, Till the Yankee came, alert and game. To shovel at Panama. The work is done and the way is clear, -As the long wet roadway free Spans out and weds Atlantic surf To the blue Pacific sea. The steamers cast their shore lines off, As the great lock gates unbar, And a wonder new for the wor...

DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 June 1914

DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. The history of the diamond mines is one long romance—catastrophes, skilful robberies, and the speedy reali sation of colossal fortunes, the an nual output of the mines averaging several millions of pounds sterling. Early in 1867 a traveller named O'Reil ly rested a while at a firm in the Hope Town district. His host pre sently brought to his notice some nice looking stones obtained from the riv er. O'Reilly at once pounced upon the first stone, and took it to Dr. G. Atherstone, at Grahamstown, where it quickly realised £500. This lucky wayfarer hastened back to the spot, but his searches were unavailing. Two years after, a farmer named Niekirk acquired from a native for £400 of stock a large diamond, which sold in Hope Town for £10,000. This famous gem was christened "Star of South Africa," weighed 83 carats, and esti mated to be worth £,25,000. The Bul fontein mine was discovered through diamonds being found in the walls of an old native farmhouse. Th...
