How Papa was Counted Ont. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889

How Papa was Counted Ont. f Papa was very lucky in the ballot for seats in the Strangers' Gallery, and I had a capital place. He was to speak, and I came up to town specially to hear him, and to see the great Legislative Assembly, and all the interesting people in it. * ' I thought the gallery delightful, and Mr. Taylor seeing I was a stranger, told me who all the members were. But I could not listen or follow anything ; I was so excited to hear papa. The House was very full now — to hear papa's speech, no doubt. Presently I saw him come in. Ho had a lot of papers under one arm, and books under the other ; in one hand lie held his hat full of papers, and in the other a glass of water. I watehed him intently. He placed the glass of water, tho books, papers, and notes on the seat and fixed his eye on the Speaker. Now and then he glanced up at me, and I smiled and nodded to encourago him, but I don't think lie saw mo, for he looked very pale and serious. He made notes nervously, and th...

Righted at Last. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889

Sighted at Last. CHAPTER XLVIII. (Continued.) Her own observations of Philip's changing moods recently, formed a convincing argument in favour of the importance of what the doctor said. Tliejj doctor shook his hoad and smiled regretfully. ' That is precisely what ho asked ; that is what every man to who tho ad vice is given asks. My answer is — don't ask how, hut go at once. Your affairs will bo settled much more satis factorily to all parties in a year or two if you go, than thejr can bo if you re main and die in a month or two.' 'But surely Philip is not so bad as that!' ' You asked me to spoak plainly, and I am quoting extromo cases,' said Dr. Joy, anxious to mitigate the alarm which he saw his verdict had created, whilst at the same time holding to his point.

Medical Superstitions and Others. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889

Medical Superstitions and Others. The strength of superstition is only equalled by its staying power, and al though it is popularly believed that truth prevails at last, we can only ask with ' jesting Pilate,' what is truth, that is ior ever mocking ttie hands ana: eyes of eager investigators ? Supersti tions aro sometimes like rungs on a ladder leading to truth. That is, per haps, why they are as numerous as the leaves. Superstitions — scientific, poli tical, economical, religious, the history of the world is little else than a record of their growth, development and decay. They die and others spring up in thoir place from the seeds they leave. We have not yet nearly reached tho time of their final decease. They are always with us. If the scientific spirit of the age — ihsZeit-Gekt, of which we hear so much, but regard so indifferently — should ever reign with absolute sway over the minds of men, and the number Thirteen bo robbed of portentous sig nificance, and the human race grow...
