WHEN YOU WEEP—AND WHY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

WHEN YOU WEEP-AND WHY. Tears are the common legacy of :every human being, and if you wvori asked whence they come, and where they go, you would probably display a surprising amount of ignorance about a very simple subject. Our eyes are always wet with tears, not only whenoa we weoop, but always. Our eyeballs are subjected to a constant low of the lachrymal fluid, even when we are asleep, and were the stream to cease only for an hoir, miserable indeed would be the lot of the human area turo. At the outer corner of overy eye is what is called the aInchrymal gland, which nestles under the overhanging bone of the forehead. This organ so crotes the fluid which flows over the eye to the inner corner, and there it dis Ipoears through a little orifice, whence it is in turn conducted to the nostril. That is why you require so many ex tra. handkerohiefs wlien you have a cold. Now comes the question. How do the tears find tliheir way to the nose? Exam ino your eye in the mirror, and you will f...

BY KEEL AND WHEEL. No. 7: HONG KONG. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

BY KEEL AND WHEEL. No. 7: HONG KONG. [BY WuILL W. RocIK], Many years ago, at the close of a heated argument, a man told me, with some vehemence, to go to Hong Kong,. Not until last week was I able to obey his command. I am sorry now that the opportunity did not occur sooner, for Hong Kong is a really nice place. Why it should be adopted as a synonym for the nether regions, and used as the "coup do grace" of an .argument, I cannot understand. No one who has stood on the balcony of the Peak hotel, with one eye on the soda fountain bar, anid the other on that wonderful panor ama of city, harbor, and distant Chinese mountains stretching below and before him, would ever consign his enemy to HLong Kong, It is much too interesting, altogether too picturesque and delight ful. A little over two days' steady steam ing brought us within coo-ce of the miniature island, and only those passen gers abroad at daylight saw the steamer windl her way through the beautiful Ly-e-Mun Pass, and into one o...

THE NATIONAL WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

THE NATIONAL WEALTH. Some people seem to think that man ufacturers represent tile most import ant interests. 'I'hey should remember that agriculture and manufactures stand in the relation of the parent and child; without the farmer the latter would not exist. Agriculture eproe sents the original foundation of ;ll the progress of the world. Lord Lans. ldowne, in a recent speech delivered in England, said:--"After ell, agricul ture is infinitely the most important of our national interests. It is of all in dustries the one which (nn he most ap propriately deseribcd as indisponsable. It is ian inxlhustibleo source of our na tional wealth." "Good joke on my mother in law; I haven't stopped laughing yetl" remark ed the man at the club, cutting tie cards. "What was it? Spring it so that we can laugh too," said his friend, arrang ing his trumps, "Well, you know, my wife's mother lives out in the country, and never vis its the city.

WAIL OF THE BANK CLERK MAN WHO SHOVELS SOVEREIGNS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

WVAIl OF TIIE BANK CLERK MAN WIIO SHIOVELS SOVEREIGNS There is a common fallacy in the public mind that the bank clerk has a soft Job, and an easy time (says "One of Thet" in "The Daily Express"), The tradition is that he wears a morning coat and top hat, travels "first," leisurely strolls into thile pala tlal portals of his business abode about 10 a.m., and leaves at 4 sharp. It will doubtless take time to eradicate this traditional figure from the public mind and put In its place the bank clerk as he really is-- hard-worked toiler whoso hours are long, and whose pay is generally quite inadequate to keep up thile respectability expected of him, It must he remembered that the small percentage of managerships and higher appointments are reserved, in nmost cases, for those who have friends at court-the court of directors. The ordinary young man, upon entering tilhe service of a bank, can only look for ward to at least 40 years' hard labor, If he should reach the age of 65 he may be pe...
