THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 28 February 1914

THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. There are some in this world who are compelled to tarry at home. The great raoe of life goes on, and'they, are left behind; they are too weak to tub. ; . -They have nothing to '"do with the toil of the brain j their work is alf w'ith the heart. But what a work that is! The toil.? of the hand and brain are nothing to it; these yield a solace to their en ergy, but the sad heart has only to bear. It is harder to bear than to do. I may be rudely jostled in the race, but the race itself gives an excitement that makes me forget my pain. I am there, at least, in the company of my fellow, men. But to tarry, at home, to wait passive under the shadow of God, to nave nothing to do but the burden of one great cross ; this is the trial of life —this is .the trial of love.

SUBTLE CRITICISM. . !. The small boy stood in front of. the. : dazzling light of the cheap theatre witli a. yeljow dog under iiis arm. Evidently he wanted to get in, and the sight of •. a well-dressed and apparently prosper- . V ous man on the steps gave him an idea. . "Are you the manager of the show ?" asked the boy. It turned out that he had guessed, correctly, and . the' lad continued: "I want to see the show, but I haven't got the money. I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll give you this dog if you?ll let me inv" The manager's heart melted. He remembered that he too had been a boy. "You may go inj" he said, " but never mind about giving me the dog. Take the dog along with you." The lad went in with the yellow dog under his coat. After the perform ance the manager was still standing in . front, and happened to see the urchin como out. . . "Well, sonny," he remarked, -"bow did you like the show?" r "Oh, pretty well," he said; "but I'm glad I didn't have to give you the dog." . ' So m...

ELEPHANT STICKING. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 March 1914

ELEPHANT STICKING. After the favorite sport of the Nulm Arabs in the Soudan, the roughest football or the riskiest polo seems de plorably tame and mild. In that far away corner of Africa, the most popu lar form of amusement in sporting circles is to hunt elephants as British people hunt pigs—oil horseback and armed only with a spear. A writer in the "Morning Post" gives a graphic account of a morning's rfport with these bold barbarians. Elephant hunting, under any oircumstances is a strenuous and venturesome pursuit,, and the white sportsman, with the test of beaters and the heaviest armaments, often carries his life in his hands. But the game as played by the Arabs of the Nuba Mountains is far more thril ling, and »calls for an iron nerve, a superb horsemanship, and a reckless daring. The elephants graze on the plains and river lands,grouped together in herds. • The Arabs, lean, wiry ath letes, most of them, with keen eyes, leave' their villages in the mountains . in August, the'be...

SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 March 1914

SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY, Electricity appeared as a solution for i the smoke problem in a recent demon : stration. The smoke-abating appliance removed the soot front- 900 cubic feet j>f smoke in^a minute at a total cost of about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating the solid particles ' in the amoke by means of a powerful electric current, and its invention is based on" the fact that one-third to one-half of the solid matter in smoke from smelt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxide. JSloctrical current is applied to the smoke by means of a wiro woven through a number of small pipes placed at the top ot" the chimney so that the smoke must pass through thou. As soon as the electricity is turned on tliB small particles lloating in the smoke are changed to large particles which fall 'back into'a bin by their own weight. .Its application is not confined, howevor, to smelting" furnaces, for it has been found that the device works a...
