This is the advice of Dr. Carlton Bar. kpr, an eminent surgeon of Washing ton.

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. All a woman wants is to be wanted, The self-made man never quite gets the job finished. Young man, don't go to the devil before you are dead, A man laughs at scars when a wo. man throws things at him, A woman's weapons are smiles and tears; a man's are cheques, The fool and his money keep many clever people from starving, A womihan will forgive a man overy. thing except another woman. Some girls can no more learn how to flirt than a fish can learn how to swim, With some girl·s a clear complexion is more important than a clear con science, A woman can generally damp a young man's ardor by throwing him over board. Tho man who is not conceited over his business doesn't deserve to have any, When a woman cheapons herself she soon learns that men do not care for bargains. You can always score off a despondent suffragette by telling her to buck up and be a man, You can tell how much respect a man has for a girl by the way he puts his arms around her. To be original is t...

PLAYING THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 February 1914

PLAYING THE MAN, Whether we regard life as a Lane leading to a dead wall-a mere bag's end, as the French would say-or whether we think of It as a vestibule or gymnuasini, where we wait our turn and prepare our faculties for some more noble destiny; whether we thunder in a pulpit, or pule in little athoestic poetrybooks about its vanity and brevity; whether we look justly for years of health and vigor, or are about to mount into a bath* chair, as a step towards the hearse; in each and all of these views and situations there is but one cncluslon possible: that a man should stop his ears against paralysing terror, and run the race that is set before him with a single mind.-R, L. Stevenson.

SUFFRAGETTE "REVENGE" VAN-DWELLERS RUINED. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 February 1914

SUFFRAGETTE "REVENGE" VAN-DWELLIERS RUINED. SA great fire in the timber-yards at richmond-walk, ,Devonport, Is the re ply of the militant suffragettes to the recent arrest of Mrs Pankhurst on board the Majestic at Plymouth. The fire which raged to-day (says "The Daily News," of December 16) was the greatest ever seen in the Three Towns, and there could be no doubt us to its authorship, for messages stating that it was a "reply to the torture of Mrs Pankhurst," and asking, "How dare the Government arrest Mrs Pank hurst and allow Sir Edward Carson and Mr Bonalr Law to go free'?" were fastened to adjacent railings. To make the revenge complete, the incendiaries chose for the outrage the place whence sailed the special steamer which foiled the suffragettes' plans for the attempted rescue of Mrs Pank burst. Is was here, too, that, on Thurs day week, "General" Drummond and the bodyguard waited In vain for many weary hours for the return of the police with their prisoner. Stored in the yar...

PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 February 1914

PATIENCE, Patience with one's inmperfec. tions, in the sense of not becoming so discouraged as to give up trying, is virtue. If one ,will look at it so, new days are given us for new lives, It is not what we were yesterday, after all, that concerns us; it is what we are now in thought and deed. To think 'we are so bad it is not 'worth trying any more is as foolish as to act, as some do, as if we needed not to be any better, Be j)atient towards your friends. Some men are slow to see in good things, They want to do right, but it takes them a good while to deter mine ,what is required of them. Every member of the party of Christ is not an eye. To get out of patience with these dull ones will not help them or you. Give them time and they will do their duty. We all have our in frmltlies, Let us bear with each other. To be patient you must have pa* Lience. The stream cannot flow if the fountain is dry. The fruit will no grow "'ithoul t the tree. Resohl alone, against impatience a A-l Ae
