MOROCCO'S SULTAN A PERSONAL SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 2 October 1907

MOROCCO'S SULTAN A PERSONAL SKETCH. In tbe 'Daily Mall' of 2nd August Mrs Prances Campbell, ^,-ho has, to a considerable extent, raised Raisull -to the dignity of a Moroccan Robin Hood, writes of the Sultan, Abflul-ed Aziz as ? follows:— ? I Abd el Aziz — 'The Beloved'— in his ( spotless garments, with tbe hood of his sulham over his head, is not so much like the Sultan of Morocco as the living embodiment of one of the Apostfes whlch one would be- difficult to say. Abd1 el Aziz is such a strangely dual personality, such a contradiction in temperaments and tempers. Personally his appearance Is very striking, yet he is not a tall man, but rather short, short-necked and ap proaching dangerously near to embon point. But he lias such dignity and dis tinction, such an air of imperial vet genial pride, such instinctive command, fhat he would be recognised In a crowd as one born In the purple, and accus tomed to homage of an unusual descrip tion. A DUAL PERSONALITY. Moreover, in spite of hi...

VALVE OF WHISKERS. SENTIMENTAL AND CASH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 2 October 1907

VALUE OF WHXSKEBS. SENTIMENTAL AND CASH. The value which It places upon whis kers Is a pretty fair indication of tbe artistic sense and moral tone of a com munity. This may be said we believe, without prejudice or injustice to St. Louis, because It is possible that the case of 'Old Man Fritz' of the St. Louis Country Club Is an exceptional one. It so, St. Louis should hasten to prove It. If St. Louis cannot prove it.then it should bow ita fair head in shame. 'Old Man Fritz,' the caretaker of the St. Louis Country Club golf grounds, has, we are Informed by telegraph, Just sola his whiskers for eight dollars. It has taken him three yeara lo -raise the crop, so that his average annual Income from his whiskers has beew less than three dollars. 'Old Man Fritz,' It has Just been revealed^ilso, has been in the habit of selling his whiskers at this rate Lor many years to . St. Louis hairdressers, 'who value them'— listen to this— 'who value them for their fine color and tex ture,' When they...

The m»n Who undertakes this work needs to 'be' an' expert in every branch, or else he will soon find himself in Queer-street.

A casual glance at the now ratf- hont io enough to scare, any outsider.
