LITERARY DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

LITERARY DOCTORS. The fact that the celebrated Amer ican physician, Dr. Silas Weir Mitch ell, who died recently at Philadelphia, had a distinct reputation in the liter ary world as a poet and novelist, calls sto mind several other instances of re lationship 'between pill and quill. Dr.. Mitchell's best novel was "Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker," which deals with the period -of the revolution, and has created almost as much interest as some of the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who got his ideas for "Sherlock Holmes".while walking the Edinburgh infirmary under the eye of that remarkable surgeon, Dr. Joseph Bell. Another Scottish doctor, Dr. John Brown, was the immortal author of I "Rab and His Friends." Ricardo Ste-' phens, the author of "The Cruciform | Mark" and "The Wooing of Grey Eyes," practises and writes in Brora, Sutherlandshire, in the heart of a deer forest. Sir Frederick Treves, who has achieved the highest eminence as u surgeon, has since become one of the most widely-read a...

HORSES AND MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

HORSES AND MEN. A Boston man tells of an innocent farmer who once sought out a phreno logist and asked him to read his bumps. In revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shofrn by the aforesaid bumps, the professor said: — "Your tastes are the simple, homely ohes of the farmer. You are a far mer, are you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am I not? You are sadly deficient in judgment, and have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defrauding anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition,' it had been made to appear young and skit tish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him on the professor for £15. "It's wonderful," said the farmer to a friend, as he ...

The Ruling Instinct. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

The Ruling Instinct. An eminent astronomer, in the course of a lecture, spoke of a certain star that looked no bigger than a threepenny-bit a hundred miles away. After the discourse one of the audi ence said to him, "I know you for a Scotsman, for no one but a Scotsman would trouble about a threepenny-bit a hundred miles off!"

LUCKY WINDFALLS. Large Rewards for Small Services. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

LUCKY WINDFALLS. * Large Rewards for Small Services. Some little time ago the Quinlan Grand Opera Company landed in Mel bourne to commence a tour through the States of the Commonwealth. The horn-player was Mr. William Busby, formerly a soldier in the British Army. • It seems that ten years ago Mr. Busby rescued from drowning a child who had fallen over Chelsea bridge. The father of the child hand ed him ten pounds, and said, "You will hear from me later." The Royal Humane Society also awarded Mr. Busby its medal for so gallant a res cue. When the company stepped ashore at Melbourne a cable message was awaiting Mr. Busby. It inform ed him that the father of the rescued child had died and left him £7000. When the news was communicated to the other members of the com pany they gathered round the musi cian and gave him three hearty cheers. A Nantwich shoenu. er' and clogger named George Robinson had a wind fall as the sequel of an incident which occurred twelve ye^rs ago. He was then a ...

THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

i THE WORLD. \ The world is well lost when the, world is wrong, No matter how men deride you, For if you are patient and firm and •strong, ' You' will find it in time (though the time foe long) That the world wheels 'round be side you. If you dare to sail first o'er a new thought track, ! For'awhile it will scourge and score you; j Then, coming abreast with a skilful tack, It will clasp your hand and slap your back, And vow it was there before you. The world means well, though it wander and stray From the straight, short cut to duty;' So go ahead in that path, I say, For after awhile it will come your way Bringing its pleasures and beauty. —Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Recognised Him. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

Recognised Him. In one case the late Mr. Justice Hawkins sentenced all the prisoners to death. The sentences were after wards remitted to-terms of penal ser vitude, while one of the defendants, Alice Rhodes, received a free pardon. In the summer of that year Mr. Jus tice Hawkins, feeling warm after a walk over Wimbledon Common, called at an inn and asked for a ginger beer. He thought the barmaid looked at him strangely. "Thank you, my lord," she said as she handed him his change. "You know me, then?" exclaimed Hawkins, with a smile. "I shall never forget you," answer ed the barmaid. "It's, not a year ago that you sentenced me to death." The barmaid was Alice Rhodes.

WE DIDN'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

WE DIDN'T KNOW. "Johnny's gone to be a nangel," a little girl, with eyes wide with awe and wonder, confided to a visitor at the house of mourning. "Johnny's my brother, and I didn't know he was goin' to 'be sick and go away last night. On'y yesterday he was here with his coat all tore where he'd been playin', and his hands scratched. He wanted a bite of my apple, and 1 wouldn't give him any. I wish now I had, but I didn't know he was goin' to be a nangel." Poor little sister! That is what we all say afterwards, "We didn't know," and oh! how our hearts ache over the .scratched hands for which we for got" to show any sympathy, and the apples we selfishly refused to share! We were, busy, tired, impatient, and our own hands were smarting. We thought our burdens heavy; we want- ; ed to be helped ourselves, instead of helping others, and the little plea at our side met no response. We didn't know it was the last plea, but now we can never forget the wistful eyes which followed us that day...

POINTS ON PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

POINTS ON PALMISTRY. ' Smooth, conical lingers are a sign of talkativeness and levity. i Strong, knotted fingers show pru dence and capacity. A palm too slim, narrow, and feeble indicates instinct without capacity. If the palm is too large the person is coarse and animal-like. If the outer-joint of the fingers forms a knot, the person has well-ar ranged ideas. The individual who has knots at the middle joints of the fingers always has a place for everythisig and every thing in its place. Intellect belongs to knotted fingers, grace to smooth ones. The person whose fingers are smooth and pointed is guided wholly by in spiration, and never has a reason for i what he does. The hard, wrinkled hand which is opened to its full extent with diffi culty shows intractability, a mind without pliancy. Large hands mean a close attention to minute details. Broad nails show the owner to be bashful and gentle.

FAMOUS WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 4 July 1914

FAMOUS WIDOWS. News comes from Knoxville, Ten nessee, of the death of "Parson" BrownloWs widow, at the age of nine ty-five years. Few people knew that until so lately there remained this liv ing link with the famous "fighting parson" of war times, whom Tennes see expelled because of his bold at tacks upon secession, but afterwards recalled to be its governor. Yet how many widows of distinguished men have survived their husbands so long that they have seemed to trail phan toms of history through the living re alities of. a later generation! In the town of Charlotte, North Carolina, Mrs. Stonewall Jackson is still living. It is nearly thirty-eight years since Custer's last fight, yet Mrs. Custer is alive and well. Airs. N. P. Willis died only a few years ago in Washington, though the literary career of her bril liant husband reached its height long before the civil war. The widow of Jefferson Davis lived until 1906. Gen eral George Pickeft's widow is still alive. Alexander Hamilton's ...
