GEORGE TINWORTH'S GENIUS. Romantic Story of a Wheelwright Sculptor. Grit as well as gefiiiis played a great part in the success of Mr. Geo. Tinwortli, the wheelwright sculptor, who died the other day. Born in ob scurity and poverty seventy years ago, Mr. Tinwortli once related how, as a boy, he used jealously to watch the piece of "make-weight" bread given with a loaf, to prevent its being taken by other boys at street corners as hungry as himself. He had practical ly no schooling, and was soon sent out to work, his first situation being one in the city, where he toiled from seven in the morning until nine ,, at r.iglit for 4/- a week. Tihwori.h's father, who was a wheelwright, "nad no sympathy with his son's ideals and aspirations.

His first efforts at modelling were made in secret in his fath...

Not of Poetic Taste. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914

Not of Poetic Taste. A poet with a precious scrap-book of his own writings under his arm wandered by a theatre when suddenly the idea struck him that ho would like to see a play that night, so, enter ing the place, he asked for the Press agent. That gentleman was out, but the manager was in. He was ushered In, and the manager inquired his busi ness. "I would like two seats for to night," faltered the poet. "And who < might you be?" asked the manager. The poet mentioned his name. "Um. yes," smiled the other. "I've heard of you! But why should I give you seats?" The bard murmured some thing about courtesy to the Press, and added that probably identification might be necessary, so, as he had a scrapbook full of his published poems, he would be glad if--- But the man ager cut him short, and. calling out to his secretary to make out a couple of passes for that night, said, "My dear sir, I'd rather give you the whole house than read your poems!"

A DESERTER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914

A DESERTER. A private of an infantry regiment deserted one night when he was on guard at the depot in England. For eight years afterwards he followed the sea as a fireman, and on his last voyage his ship put in at Bombay where he and his mates went ashore. They all imbibed, not wisely but too well, of flery. native spirits, which, combining with the heat overcame them as they were making for the city and their ship after an excursion into the surrounding country, and they all fell into a drunken stupor by the roadside. As they slumbered stertorously, a European infantry regiment marched by, the soldiers glancing curiously at the tipsy sleepers, and some of the Tommies shouted jokes at the oblivi ous firemen. One of the soldiers glancing at the seamen as he swung by, started, half halted, recovered himself, and march ed on, but looked back over Ills shoul der at one of the sleepers. "What's them atter?" asked a ser geant in the rank behind, seeing the look of half-doubting recognitio...

The Sergeant Major Sold. The sergeant-major of the bat talion of the regiment was in Cork, and going into a well-known bar he called for a glass of special whisky. Watering the spirits to his fancy, he was just about to put the glass to his lips when a young man standing beside him said: "Beg pardon, major. I suppose you can't drink the water in that glass ur.d leave the spirits?" The soldier's lips curled as he re plied: 'Certainly not, nor could any body else; the thing is absurd." "Oh, no, it isn't," said the young man. "You can learn something in Cork." "Nonsense," was the reply; "it can't be done." "I'll bet you a penny I can do it," replied the young Corkonian emphat ically. "I'll take your bet," said the soldier. The young man took up the glass of "special," looked critically at it, and then drank it off. Looking with apparent amazement at the empty glass he exclaimed: "By jove, major, I've lost," and he handed over a penny. The sergeant major looked keenly at the fellow, the...

THE DOCTRINE OF BUDDHA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914

THE DOCTRINE OF BUDDHA. Buddha, the founder of the system , that bears his name, was born be tween 500 and 600 B.C. He was the so_n of one of the rajahs of a small principality in India, and was trained in all the lore of Brahininism, the re ligion of his time. He married, but in a brief while wearied of the life of the Court, and retired into the desert and spent some years leading a life of austere penance and mortification, and after wards many more in prolonged medi tations. During this latter time he believed he had discovered the key to all the riddles of life, and henceforth spent his life in propagating those princi ples which he believed would bring peace to the troubled souls of men. His fervor and eloquence quickly gain ed him many disciples, and when he died his doctrines had already been widely spread amongst the people of India. To speak briefly, his system is one of pessimism. With him all existence brings sorrow; sorrow springs from desire; therefore, cease from desi...

DU MAURIER AND THE GOLDFISH. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914

DU MAURIER AND THE GOLDFISH. While the public ha9 acknowledged Its debt to Mr. George Du Maurier for his delightful sketch, "Trilby," yet it is not generally known tbat there was an old dame in the Latin Quarter of Paris who to her dying day bore the author a grudge. It so happened that at the time of the offence which caused the life long estrangement between the two, Du iLaurier was a boarder in the old lady's house. He occupied a third story front room, directly beneath which v?as that of his landlady. She possessed a bowl of goldfish, a source of great pride, which was daily placed just outside the window. It occurred to Du Maurier, who had a fondness for the piscatorial art, that he could satisfy his longing in that direction at the expense of the fish. Consequently he secured bait and tackle, and when the duties of the landlady called her from the room he angled for the fish from his window. He was so successful that when the old lndy returned, only one out of sis fish remaine...
