Not Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 November 1912

.i Not Knowing. The publication of Mr. George Ed gar's book on the personality of Mr. Martin Harvey, the well-known actor, reminds one of a delicate rebuke Mr. Harvey once administered to a young journalist. The journalist was interviewing him in his dressing-room, and Mr. Harvey was remarking on the extraordinary number of people who wrote to him with a view to their getting on the stage, and the people he met frequent ly asked him to let them join his com pany. ' The journalist expressed surprise. 'I think I've met every actorman ager in London,' he said thoughtless ly, 'and I've never asked one of them to take me into their companies.' Mr. Harvey looked' at him keenly for a second. Then he smiled. 'Ah, well,' he said slowly, 'you never know what you'll come to!' A' story is going the rounds of a Welsh Bishop who attended a sitting of the House of Commons while the Welsh Disestablishment Bill was un der discussion. After listening for some time to the debate from the Peers' Galler...

JAPANESE NEVER SAY "MIKADO." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 November 1912

JAPANESE NEVER SAY 'MIKADO.' I No ruler of whom history has any ' record has ever been treated with such i profound reverence as is accorded to the Emperor of Japan. ! i There are Japs still living who re member the days— not so very long i ago — when it was death to look upon his face, so that even the highest no bles were obliged to keep within doors I whenever their sovereign was any lW +-» rtl T' T» fti f*Vl | Even now there are millions of old fashioned Japanese who deem it a sacrilege to even so much as whisper his name. Nevertheless, every Japan : ese householder, poor as well as rich, reserves a sleeping-shelf called a toko nama, which no other person is ever allowed to occupy, for their emperor, in case he should chance to drop in and want a night's lodging. Fancy the best bedroom in every English man sion and cottage being kept empty for King George! , Curiously enough, just as the vast majority of Japanese have never heard of Japan— they call their country Ni hon — so the...

DO AIRMEN DIE PAINLESSLY? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 November 1912

DO AIRMEN ~bt¥'PAlNLE5StVr ^ ^ I It is very possible that to be killed whilst flying is one of the moBt pain less forms of death existing. Accord ing to medical experts, a person who falls quickly through space suffers no pain or paralysing fear, yet is quite {aware of what is happening, i The victim's thinking power is im mensely increased. His past seems I lighted as if by a flash of lightning. and then gentle, soft tones souna in his ears, to slowly fade away when unconsciousness sets in. That is the state of mind in which a falling airman is said to be in by the medical experts. Certainly the ex periences of aviators themselves who have survived aerial falls would back up such an assertion. Vedrines, for instance, the famous French flyer, recently fell from his aeroplane from an immense height in the front of a railway train. He recol lects quite vividly all the incidents of 1 the fall, and remembers calculating j in an amazingly cool fashion whether he would miss the rapidly ap...

A Dying Man's Will. STORY OF A MAN WHO TOOK ANOTHER'S PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 November 1912

A Dying Man's Will. STORY OF A MAN WHO TOOK ANOTHER'S PLACE. It happened over a year ago now, at a time when I was down on my luck. I had drifted from the stage, to find free-lance journalism little if any more lucrative. I forget my exact fin ancial position, but, speaking from memory, I believe I had eightpence between me and starvation. I had tramped Fleet-street one afternoon in i ujr vain cuucavui lu uio^udc ui ournc work, and was walking homewards along the Strand when I saw a man stop and stare at me. He was short and stout, a man as well groomed and prosperous as 1 was the opposite. That much I noticed as we passed one another. It was in the evening. I was seated at the open window of my one room, writing, when a knock sounded on my door. I put down my pen, wondering who my visitor could be. The door opened, and the man I had met in the Strand stood before me. 'I must apologise for my abrupt entrance, Mr. Foster,' he said, 'but your landlady said you were in, so I took the l...

EVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 November 1912

EVOLUTION. Once my son called me 'Dear Daddy,' 'Twas in days of long ago; How he's altered is surprising, .. It's, a :way boys, have, you know.. Later on he'd cry, 'I say, Dad, Can you tell me — so-and-so?' Fearsome queries I remember, Though it seems so long ago. Home he came upon vacation, in froniol vain 'Hallo, Pater, where's the mater? Jolly glad I'in home again.' Later still, when home from college, And a puzzling question rose, He'd exclaim, 'Let's ask the Guv'nor, I will wager that he knows.' Then a money-lender pressed him j For a hundred pounds or so: j 'For a cheque I'll touch the Old 'un,' j He declared two days ago! I To have suffered much is like know ing many languages.

HIS WIFE. ; A: TALE OF AN UNEQUAL MATCH. By E. Newton Bpngey. 'Yes I love you,' whispered Ruth . v Paterson, and then, a moment later, she added: 'But oh! I am so — so ^afraid.' * - 'Afraid!' repeated Stuart Hedtor ? ?with a smile. 'What is there to fear, ' my darling?' . He drew her closer to him, and kissed her. ' 'You are Avealthy, your relations ' and friends are gentlefolk; 1' am but a. poor dressmaker,' she answered. 'Your friends will think you mad to marry a poor girl like me — they will despise me.' 'If they knew you they would love ? you, as I do,' he said in ardent tones. 'But they won't get the chance, dear, because I'm going to carry you oft down into the country, where we'll have a little home of our own, with no one to interfere with us.' So he talked to her, until at length he banished her fears — for the time being, at any rate. Stuart Hedford was an orphan who had been left very comfortably off.
