The BircMp Advertiser. PUBLISHED EVEEY WEDNESDAY. " For the cause that needs assistance^ For the wrong that needs resistance. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19, 1914. THE REAL STORY OF THE AVAR. No. II. The most striking factor in the pre sent war is the extreme rapidity witli which the scene of the conflict has been changed. On July 30, Austria declared war against Servia, ivnd the Austrian troops were then operating "against Belgrade. The eyes of the world were centred on the Balkans, whilst; her ears were straining to catch the slightest rattle of the sword in the~ scab bard in London, Berlin and St. Petersburg. And now, within the incredibly short space of a fortnight, all attention is riveted oil that small 6trip of Bel gian territory jutting down between i'Vaiice and Luxembourg, where will soon be .fought the mightiest and bloodiest battle of all time. There the troops will be numbered, not by the tens of thousands, nor yefc by the hundreds of thousands, but by the millions, all armed with...
Hamsome Apology. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 19 August 1914
Hamsome Apology. An Irishma who had offended against the srictest rule of Parlia ment that merbers should always ad dress the Hose only through "Mr. Speaker," and not directly, tendered an apology wit', a pungent flavor. "Gentlemen," lie began, on rising, and had been stopped instantly by cries of "Ordir" from political op ponents. For a mome;t he paused, then re sumed: "Mr. Ipeaker, sir, I recog nise that in beflnning my speech with the word 'genteman' I made a mis take, for whiclil am deeply sorry, and I promise that if the House will for give me I vili endeavor not to ropeat the error!" n '•,
What He Feared. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 19 August 1914
What He Feared. It Is one of tho oddities of human nature that people are always looking as far awa; as possible from tho ground they Jtand upon, not only for their best clance of distinction, but for the dangsrs which they believo are most bes'tting. A lion-tamer although he would ven ture into the cages of the most fero cious beasts, apparently having no fear of them, had a dreadful fear of getting bronclitis. One day, afer he had entered with perfect compcsure a cage containing two lialf-starvid bears and a panther, he shook his lead gravely as he came out. "Yes, sir," he said to a gentleman who stood nar, "this will end badly for me some lay." "You are afaid those ferocious ani mals will deviur you, then?" "The animas? Pshaw! You don't think I'm afrnd of them? Not at all. But those cagis, sir, are such terrible places for draghts."'
A WAR SPECIAL'S VIGIL. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 19 August 1914
A WAR SPECIAL'S VIGIL. Some of the most uncomfortable hours of my life (said Mr. Donahoe, the war correspondent) were passed In a Chinese Inn on the road from Autung to FvnRhwangeheng. Soon after T fell asleep I was awak ened by feeling a heavy weight across my legs. It was a Chinese muleteer, who had endeavored to make himself comfortable by using me as a pil low. A vigorous movement on my part landed him on the earthen floor, where he arrived muttering impreca tions, as I suppose. I was hardly prepared for what fol lowed. Searching amongst his tatter ed bags, he drew out a broad-bladed knife, the edge of which, with his eyes fixed on me, he proceeded to test with his thumb. He may not have intended any harm, but I felt it was my turn to make a counter demonstration. Drawing my revolver, I loaded it os tentatiously under his very nose. Then I held it ready cocked. The Chinese viewed these proceed ings in apparently unmoved calm. He still sat on the floor watching me with his knife ...
DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 19 August 1914
DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. A school medical officer has made the interesting announcement that, In hfs experience, tfiose school-boys who are In the habit of sucking the end of their pens and pencils are almost al ways hoys who, when babies, .were kept constantly supplied with a dummy or comforter. The habit formed in babyhood has stuck. He adds that, as far as he is able to ascertain, pen and pencil chewing hoys usually turn into inveterate smok ers at a later age. In the great ma jor.! y of cases heavy smokers really picked up the habit in the cradle, by iicpuiring a craving for holding some tiling in their mouths to suclc at. It is this craving, too, that, accord ing to some psychologists, accounts for the feminine liking for sweets, far more than for a fondness for sweet thirds in themselves. If it is possible to guess of a heavy smoker thai his mother kept him quiet on a dummy, there are other adult habits that toll something of the baby days of their possessors. It is pretty ...

TO MAKE THINGS CHEERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 19 August 1914
I TO MAKE THINGS CHEERFUL. "This is your room, sir," said a rural lodging-house keeper, ushering in the pale-faced youth from town, who had been ordered a holiday in the country. "Mr. Lanks, who occupied this room for some months last summer, seem sd to like it very well," continued the hostess. "He was troubled a good ileal as you are, and also wrote the nicest poetry you ever read, and was subject to fits. "He died in the chair you are sitting in now. I was talkin' to him jost as I am talkin' to you now, when aii of a sudden ho gasped and lay back. I was never more frustrat ed in my life. "Everyone that comes hero admires the outlook from the windows. You can see as plain as can be the old mill down by he pond, where Mrs. Hobson's two boys were drowned eight years ago. "It was a sad affair. They were twins, and only sixteen years old. "Town folks generally think the old mill looks very picturesque in the moonlight, but it don't look quite so much to me as I suppose it would if I w...

RAN IN THE FAMILY. The other day a benevolent old gentleman beheld a little six-year-old girl walking gravely along with a bas ket on her arm. Patting the chubby tot under the chin, he said: "And where are youn going to, my pretty maid?" "Give thee good-day, greybeard," replied the midget. "My father bade me to the shambles hie for a fat haunch." "W-w-wliat?" ejaculated the old par ty. "Haply tho Irnowest him—the good man Skidmore?" inquired the tiny dame.
