GOOD FOR DIGESTION. She was really charming, and seemed to enjoy very much the "quail on toast," until her pearly teeth stiuck a couple of shot : then her countenance changed, her expression became wrathy and she said, . "It i too mean to leave those nasty shot in the birds." "Why," remarked he, "they are good for the digestion." " Yes," said she, " that may be, but I don't want to die jest that way:' Nature uses a good many quillswith which to make a goose, but a man can make s goose of himself with only one.

" Tie a can to its tail !" lie yelled to some more boys, on second thought, and off they seut ried after the caudal ornament, only paus ing long enough to shy a stone, which pra. duced a new and more discordant series ol yelps. " Why doesn't some one call the police to shoot him '" indignantly demanded a well dressed lady, stopping her ears to shut out the sound. "It's a shame to allow such things !"

SLEEPING ON THE WING. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 17 October 1914
BLEEPING ON THE WING. hlearned professor of natural history has made the discorery that certain birds may sleep on the wing. Birds of prey, and some others, he says, can loch together the parts of the wing holding the extended feathers. "The action of the air on the wing in this condition extends the elbow, which is pre vented from opening too far by a cartilage, and the wings may keep this position for an indefinite length of time, with no muscular motion whatever on the part of the bird." Without exersion a bird may thus be ear ried far by a horizontal current, and might ostily go to sleep. Citisen (to tramp)-" Say. de you want a yb ?" Tramp (haughtily)-" Do ,on know who I am, sir?" It is better to say nothing at all than to go off Into an agonizing afort to my soma. tarl orsindl.

THERE IS NO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 17 October 1914
THERE IS NO DEATH.I There is no death! The stars go down To rise upon some fairer shore; .?d bright in heaven's jewelled crown They shine for evermore. There is no death The dust we tread Shall change beneath the summ* showers To golden grain or mellow fruit, Or rainbow-tinted flowers. The granite rocks disorganise To eed the hungry moes they bear; The folest leaves drink daily life From out the viewless air. There zs no death I The leaves may fall, The flowers may fade and pass away; They only wait through wintry hounr The coming of the May. There is no death! An angel form Walks o'er the earth with silent tread; He bears our best-loved things away, And then we call them '' dead." He leaves our hearts all desolate, He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowCag Transplanted into bliss, they now Adorn immortal bowers. The bird-like voice, whose joyous tones Made glad these scenes of sin and strife, Sings now an everlasting song Amid the tres ?t lile. And where he sees a smile too bright, O...
