WHY DID CAPTAIN SCOTT FAIL? [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
WHY DID CAPTAIN SCOTT FAIL? At the very moment Captain Amund isen was telling for tho first time in public the story of how he reached the South Pole, Captain Scott was gasp ing out his last; breath in his frozen tend that was to be his tomb. From this point Mr. Carlyle Smytho begins a new and most interesting contribution, to tho literature of tho Polar tragedy in tho April issue of "Life," just to hand. Mr. Smythc's article is in; 'part an interview with Captain Amundsen, and ho shows that, long T)ofore an,y news of the deaVh of Scott and his companions reached tho public^ Amundsen predicted tho trag edy. So certain was 'ho that Scott Kvould never return that he altered certain arrangements in his lecturing lour. The reasons for his forecast; are 'hero all pot out with clearness and detail, and the cfleet of tho articlef is to heighten tho reader's admiration for tho man who found the South Polo without in any way lessening his respect for the herora who lost their lives in tho fr...
LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
LADIES' LETTER. By Cella. A clerk who happened to be working back at Dalgety's the other evening, on hearing the telephone ring ratlitr violently, rushed to the receiver to demand who was speaking and why. "It's Mrs. Dash,' responded a feminine voice in plaintive accents. "I'want No! Not a broom! No! No! Not a groom! I want a room. "Sorry," re plied the clerk-politely, "but we don't stock rooms." "I want to come and board with you!" cried Mrs. Dash, in a louder tone, "But," responded th£ astonished youth at the other end of the 'phone, r.s he blushed to himself, "I don't live here although I stop rather late occasionally. And the Jinn does not take boarders." "Are not you 'Dalgety"!" almost screamed the feminine voice, fiercely. "Certainly, answered the clerk, gently. "Well, are not you the boarding-house?" sh&lt;>. queried. "Not exactly," was the reply. "This is Dalgety and Co., wool msf" chants. I expect you want 'Delgetti' " "I do," breathed the voice. Then there was a...
A FABLE FOR SPINSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
A FABLE FOR SPiNSTERS. There was once a maiden whose many charms drew scores of suitors from far and near. All were goodly youths, some wealthy and handsome, and bringing rich gifts; others still, amiable and generous; but all alike bowed to her slightest wish, and were that anxious to please her as to give up clubs, smoking, or the newspaper habit. The maiden was sore perplexed to choose from such fair-speaking youths, so she thought, "I will take counsel with Goody Wiseacre. Six times has she renewed her vows to Hymen. Surely, her experience will tell which gifts wear best in a husband." The old Goody listened as the mai den told over the claims of each suitor; then, solemnly shaking her head, the dame answered thus: "Choose as you will, my child, you will find that men are different, but husbands are all alike." It is not going too far to say that If we wish to be happy wo must try to be good. More happiness is to be gained by Beit-denial than by self-in dulgence.

FOR THE DEFENCE. A SPLENDID TALE OF A "BAD HAT." ■ I hear youi* cousin Hugh's dead," observed Brocton, snipping off the end o£ a cigar. Billy—Sir William Hadley—nodded, and, twirling the stem o£ his port glass, | stared fixedly at the glowing depths of' the wine. "A good riddaoce, eh, Billy?" sug gested Brocton, glancing at our host. "He was always a bad hat," remark ed Trench. "Was he—I wonder?" said Billy quietly. "Let me bore you fellows with a story—a true one. D'you mind?" "Fire away," said Brocton. And Billy, still gazing ai the oily surface of the port, began: "We were out after bass, whiffing, at the mouth of the Teign, Hugh and I, having motored over from home— the Chase is about five miles up the river. Hugh was staying with me, and he was always mad on sea-fish 'n&_ and he made me go. We were fishing on the ebb, and the tide came swirling and chopping out over the bar like a mill-race. "We hadn't been half-an-hour at it before the boat began to make water. I drew ...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
MORAL REFLECTIONS. An aimless life is always an un happy life. Nothing in the world was ever built without a dream at the beginning. It is the nature of the human dispo sition to hate him whom you have in jured. Thou shalt not rise by grieving over the irremediable past, but by remedy ing the present. \ Evil springs from the misuse of life; it is the rust that comes out on the neglected machine. Hasten slowly, and without losing heart put your work twenty times upon the anvil. Life is a battle, not a parade, and it is for us to make to-day's defeats to-morrow's conquests. Man is the animal that imakes bar gains. No other animal does this. One dog cannot exchange a bone with another. It is ordained in the eternal consti tution of things that men of intemper ate minds cannot be free; their pas sions forge their fetters. Woman is often unfair to man lu not realising his need of sympathy in his hand-to hand battle with the outer world. She utterly forgets that there is no loneliness so ...
Very Doubtful. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
Very Doubtful. The recent death of Sir George Dar win, son of the great Charles Darwin, has recalled one of the stories he de lighted to tell.

At last, unable to stand it any longer, Mrs. . Darwin descended to demand an ex- ■ ■ planation. "Robinson," she said sternly, ad- -v dressing the cook, "what is the mean ing of tills disturbance?" "Well, mum," the cook explained apologetically, "It's all along of Mr. Briggs, the butler, mum. He wants to prove as "ow we're all descended r from Darwin, mum, and some of us 'as our doubts." } Jack: "Once more, Molly,1 will you marry me?" > Molly.

Never Again. A young curate was recently ap-. pointed to his first vicarage. As it happened, the average attend ance at the church was distinctly on the small side, but a large congrega tion turned up to hear the new vicar preach his first sermon. As he entered the church the old verger plucked him by the arm. and whispered: "Take a good look at the congrega tion, sir. You'll never see them all to gether again!"
