THE PRICE OF A GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
THE PRICE OF A GOWN. The doctor was discouraged, for the neighborhood was well, The colic spared the little ones, and also it befel The elders had no troubles that de manded medic's skill; No one in that vicinity was even slightly ill. The doctor's wife was worried, for she longed to have a gown. The doctor, when she mentioned it, could only darkly frown. "There is," he said, "no chance at all of getting what you need, While every person hereabout is from all illness freed." "Oh, woe is me, alas, alack," then cried the doctor's wife, It'B terrible indeed that I should have so hard a life. I must, It seems, have patience just because your patients lack; I must, to go abroad in style, put aom? one on his back.' Tliis woe she pondered deeply, but ere long waB see:; to smile. "I have a plan," she said at last, "that really seems worth while. "I'll start at once a cooking school." He straightway ceased to frown. "My dear," he cried most joyfully. "you'll surely get that gown." And so the...
LEAKS STOPPED IN FLOWER BOX. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
LEAKS STOPPED IN FLOWER BOX. The greatest, objection to box gar dens is the fact that they drain over everything below them, spoiling the liousj paint and stucco in case they are used as window gardens, and even when used on the porch floor the con tinual leakage injures the woodwork, while the boxes themselves rot out in a couple of seasons. This may be overcome, says the Washington "Herald," by having a perforated galvanised ran made that may be bo constructed that the plants will need watering onlr once a week, and will thrive well because of the eveness of the supply of moisture. The pan must be made to exactly fit the box and be about two inches deep. Ii should have a cover, which should be perforated at regular inter vals. and the whole thing will be in the nature of a tank, which should also have a tube coming up from it to the top of the box, in one of the cor ners. The box should preferably b.» shallow. The tube is arranged as a feed pipe to the tank, which will sup ply the...
GRAVE AND GAY. Losing Time Thereabouts. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
GRAVE AND GAY. Losing Time Thereabouts. The traveller found ;he old farmer sitting on the fence chewing a of hay. "What do you think of the tariff:" asked the traveller. , "Dunno,' drawled the old man la conically. "Ain't read about it." "Well, they put an extra tax on tea." "That don't bother me, stranger. We drink sassafras tea around these parts." And candy." "Gosh; we don't need any imported candy. Wild honey in the woods and sweet gum trees for the cutting." "And feathers." And then the old man resumed chewing his wisp of hay. "Don't hurt us any, partner. Lucy den't want any ostrich plumes and birds of paradise. Home grown roos ter feathers are good enough for her. Calculate there ain't no.hing in that tariff to affect us, stranger. You are just losing time telling about it in these parts."
PITY THE HUMORIST. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
PITY THE HUMORIST. It's not much fun to scribble rhyme? ana ladle humor out, When one is wholly at a loss foj things to write about; And when a man for years has had this sort of thing to do, It'3 very, very hard to find a them that's really now. So sometimes as my weary brain 1 rummage o'er and thresh In vain attempt to find a thought that'i just a trifle fresh, I'm tempted sore to cease to quip, to give up joke and quirk, And grab a shovel or a pick and look for easy work.
CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES. A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
CUTTINGS WORTH FORTUNES. A Man who Insured His Collection for £3,000. The news, first made public the other day, that a certain well-known London journalist has insured his col lection of newspaper cuttings for no less than £3,000, doubt'ess came as a surprise to many people. And. indeed, it is somewhat difficult for an outsider to understand how a mere jumble of snippets from old journals can be worm any such sum. Yet their ac tual value to their owner is probably far in excess of what he has insured them for, for they are his stock in trade, the raw material, so to speak, out of which he manufactures the wares by the sale of which he makes his" livelihood. The entire collection, the accumu lation of years, numbers some mil lions of separate cuttings relating to practically every conceivable subject, and they are all carefully pigeon-holed and indexed. Any trained writer, hav ing such a cutting library at his dis posal, could make a good living with out stirring beyond the four wal...

HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
HOAXING THE SENATORS. The Story of a Practical Joke. An amusing practical joke has just been played-upon French members of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of an opportunity to bring his name bo fore the notice .of his constituents and no method is simpler than that c? subscribing for the erection of a sta tue to some dead and gone French ce lebrity who Is in danger of being for gotten. Knowing this, says the "Times " cor respondent, a clever newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegcsippe Simon. Then he sent a printed circular to over a hundred De puties., inviting them to become hon orary members of the committer which was being organised to celebrate the centenary o£ the illustrious Hege sippo. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant, he added a quotation from his wort's, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes away." The Deputies, who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the groat man or to lose ...
VAIN DIPLOMATS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
VAIN DIPLOMATS. Court life is turned inside out by H.R.H. the Infanta Euialia of Spain, aunt of King Alfonso, and she pre sents to us in "The Strand Magazine " where her memoirs are appearing, a picture of scandals, intrigues, and jeal ousies which is astonishing. Some of her most piquant remarks are reserv ed for diplomats, whose ears must surely be tingling. In her opinion, of all men in modem Courts, the diplomat is the most ab surd. After remarking that they aro "a useless survival of the days when the relations between nations depend ed on the feelings between Sovereigns and the diplomats intrigued and flat tered to some purpose by smoothing over misunderstandings or exasperat ing offences," the Princess points our that nowadays the Court diplomat ha-; 110 power, except to deliver the mes sage of his home Government. "He is not entrusted with'secrets," she says, "any more than an erran-1 boy. And he is usually stupid. If: a family of position has a son who is not -suite bright,...
ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
ROSSETTI AND THE SALMON. Tho enthusiasm of genius leads tn strange anil curious happenings nt times, and tho story which is told by Mr. Henry Holiday, the famous artist, about his friend ltossetti in his "Re miniscences" illustrates in an amusing maimer the later's thoughtlessness when he came in contact with anything which aroused his interest. At one time Rossetti had all the en thusiasm of the beginner for collect ing china. "He dined one evening with friends who followed his lead in tho matter of china, to such good pur pose that the whole dinner was served in beautiful specimens, and for the better display of these was set out on the table. The salmon was served in a noble dish, evidently a precious example. When tho cover was re moved, llossetti started, leaned over to examine the dish, took it in both hands, turned it upside down to see the marks on the back, leaving the sal mon on the tablecloth, and exclaimed, 'The very dish I was going to get to morrow!'" The famous physic...
Preparing. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
Preparing. An old woman in Sussex was severe ly reproved by the parson for curtsy ing whenever the name of Satan was mentioned. Asked why she did so, she replied: "Well, civility costs nothing, and you never know what'll happen." Among the congregation assemble'! at a chapel near Wigan a few davs ago was an elderly lady, well known as an eccentric character. The les son read by the minister this day hap pcned to be the 2nd Chapter of St. Matthew. During the reading of the 25tli and 2Gth verses, which related the history of the woman who had seven husbands, all of whom died be fore her, the old lady seemed to grow very excited, and when the next verse was read, which says, "And last of all the woman died also," the old lady, unable to control herself any longer, cried out at the top of her voice, "Time for her!" Instead of waiting for a rich unclc to die, go and learn wisdom of the in dustrious ant.

A Globe Trotter. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
A Globe Trotter. A University professor who has greatly endeared himself to his stu dents on account of his goodhearted ness, has one particular failure-ab sent-mindedness. Lately he visited his married nephew, and, of course, had to listen to the young wife's praise of her firstborn. The gentleman fer. that he must say something to give the impression that he was interested. "Can the dear little fellow walk?" he inquired, quietly.. 'Walk!" said the mother. "Why. he has been walking for five months!" "Dear me!" exclaimed the professor, lapsing again into abstraction, "whsit a long way he must have got."

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd.,' London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. A Compact. Gilray pressed a litle "closer to the two women, he was anxious to hear what was passing between them. He was doing now what he would have scorned to do a year or so ago. Hid debts and his desperate troubles were sapping the moral fibre of the man. He was so nervously eager to get to the bottom of this mystery that his gen tlemanly instincts were crushed out. Apparently he stood raptly contem plating one of the -pictures on the wall. Ever and again words came to him, but he could make very little of them! Then he started. Ninon Desterre was talking. Just for a moment she seemed to forget herself for her voice was raised eager ly. "Your esteemed father wjll never have enough," she explained. "It is a growing disease, this money-making. He told me that when he had made a million? . . . more than that was. . . . a profi...

CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
CHAPTER IX. Along the Road. It was done rashly and on the spur of the moment. Exactly what he was going to discover Gilraiy had not the faintest notion. It seemed a ridicul ous thing for a prominent Harley-st. specialist to be setting out on a wild, midnight adventure like this with no logical excuse, and no notion where the escapade might lead him. Madame Desterre had annoyed and piqued him. She had spoken of his private affairs with thinly-veiled insolence, and she had, moreover, threatened him. Who was this giddy, glittering society but terfly who ventured to pit her wits against his? He would show her that this sort of thing was not to be toler ated ! Gilray's blood was up now, and he was determined to see the matter through. The more knowledge lie gained the better armed would he be for the fray, if fray there was eventu ally to bo. He had been warned to make 110 further advances towards Enid Harley-?ie had been threaten ed with serious consequences if I10 did so. Indeed, it se...
CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 13 August 1914
CHAPTER VIII. The High Road of Adventure. Here at last it appeared to Gilray was fortune holding out both hands to l,im. He had formed a compact with Enid, showing that she was more or less under an obligation to him. It wruld have been a difficult matter to state precisely what that obligation was, but no doubt time would help him to give it some satisfactory de finition. Anyway, Enid had been desperately afraid lest he should speak, lest he should say something tli; f might put Van del- Knoot on the track of his missing miniatures. Gii ray had certainly seen the precious pictures in the hands of Daniel Har iey. Whether they had been stolen or not it did not in the least matter -perhaps there was some strange s'.ory atached to their appearance in the (jueer dock-house, some plausible explanation. Even the blackest evi dence sometimes becomes common place when the witnesses for the de fence enter the witness-box. What did it matter? Suppose Dan iel I-Iarley was a thief, what then? A...
