FAMOUS PEARLS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

FAMOUS PEARLS. The most- remarkable pearl in the universe is that which the great tra veller Tavernier sold in the seven teenth century to the Shah of Persia for the modest sum of £120.0 00. It still forms one of the chief ornaments in the diadem of the Persian monarchs, and it is a thing of beauty indeed. The Imam of Muscat possesses a pearl weighing over twelve and a half carats, and so wonderful is its texture that the light of dav can be seen through it. It is valued at £40,000. The Pope is in possession of a pearl, given to one of his predecessors by a Doge of Venice, which as to size and shape, is unique. It seems out of place in the glass case of an old man. It wonld be much more suitably dispos ed about the white throat of some Court beaufar^^^^^^^

HIS ONE MEAL A DAT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

HIS ONE MEAL A DAT. w A famous and eccentric physician, who flourished in London one hundred and thirty years ago, was an advocate of a restricted diet. He held that one meal a day was enough lor any one, and he practised what he preached. But that meal ! This is what a chronicler of the time said of it — ' For over tweirSy year* Doc tor Fordyce dined daily at Dolly's chop house, near Paternoster Row. At 4 o'clock he entered and took his seat at a table always reserved for him. A silver tankard of strong , ale. a bottle ui puib uiuc, auu a uicaouiu wuiaxu ing a quarter of a Dint of brandy were instantly placed before him. The moment the waiter announced him the cook put a pound and a half of rump steak on the gridiron, and some deli cate trifle was placed on the table to serve until the steak wa3 ready. This morsel was sometimes half a broil^M chicken, jAmetimes a Whei. h&i^Heatfj£. ed to devour his steak. When he had finished his meat he took the remain der of his brandy. H...

A WORD OF WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

A WORD OF WARNING. The time-honored saying that we seldom hold our possessions at their full value until we . are in danger of losing them is never more true than when we refer to the blessing of good eyesight. It is through the avenue of sight that most impressions reach our brain, and when we lose it we are 'shut in the dark,' cut off from our fellows by a deprivation of which only the totally blind can understand the magnitude. Our eyes are alliiAnort ant to us, and should be guarded more carefully than the most precious jewels that ever came into mortal pos session. Yet how often we see girls doing their best to ruin their eyes? They have often heard that reading in trains and omnibuses is one of the worst things that they can do; but one can not take the shortest journey without ?noticing that about four women out of every ten are trying their eyes by poring over some paper or novelette, which iS jerked aside every other mo ment by the jar or vibration of the car. Apart from th...

A STORY OF PROFESSOR BLACKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

A STORY OF PROFESSOR BLACKIE. Many years ago a young student, preparing for an examination, was spending a little time at Braemar. He had gone up to the 'Lion's Face,' and was lying beside a path reading the third book of Virgil's 'Aeneid' aloud. Suddenly he felt the touch of a stick on his shoulder, and, turning, saw by his side a tall, thin man with a shep- . herd's plaid thrown loosely round his shoulders. 'Ye're reading Virgil, laddie?' said the man. 'Yes, sir.' 'Let me hear you translate this,' he continued, and in a wonderful way rolled off a dozen lines of the poet, chosen at random. The young man did his best to ren der it into English, and then parsed and scanned it — in a faulty way, he thought. But the stranger was pleased to commend the student's effort. Then the two walked down to Castleton, the stranger talking eloquently and most instructively of the writings of the Greeks and Romans. 'I suppose- you don't know who I am?' he said, when their ways part ed. 'No, sir,' t...
