ANGER SHORTENS LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 27 February 1914

ANGER SHORTENS LIFE. "There Is no spendthrift like the an try man," observed a physiologist. "Ever}' burst of rage in which such a'man Indulges means nn expenditure of life force. Each time we become angry,- as a French scientist has shown, there is a shrinkage of vitality. And it is not a healthy and natural proceBB, as in the case ol vitality ex pended on physical or mental work. Injurious changes take place in tin: blood, and a species of microbe which is dormant under ordinary condition': becomes active, and attacks the blooil cells savagely. ' This curious fact, by the way, was demonstrated by the French scientist I refer to by a microscopic examina tion of drops ol blood taken at separ ate times from the arm of a man, once while he was In a calm condition, and on the other occasion when he h.v! been goaded Into a fit of fury. Anvr.-. men, in short, die before their time."

CHYPTETV III. TWO MEETINGS. Well-groomed, frock-coated, with a" sprig of violets in hisbutton-hole, Dick left his chambers in the Albany about noon, and turned towards Pic cadilly Circus. He did not look like a man who was on the ver^e of go ing to the dogs or the Jews-who had less than five pounds iii cash to his name. ~It was the day following the stormy interview at Heron Court, and for many hours, "over many pipes he had calmly reviewed the situation. Now he had doggedly braced himself for the future, and "to him that meant no reconsideration. It is usual ly the man of breeding, the upper class plunger and-spendthrift, who meets ill-fortune like a stoic ; and Dick Valentine was of that sort. He knew that the, reckless past was done and over - with ; that lie. must drop out of club-land, vanish from his particular circles of Upper Bohe mia, . as so many had done before him. In a new country, under a false name, perhaps,-he must seek and woo the fickle'goddess Fortune. How this wa...

The park, through which a silver stream mean dered, contained a smalt lake, and plenty of fine timber and shrubbery. Since 1750 Heron Court had belong ed to the Valentines, a county family of good stock, and here, about the time of the Crimea and the Mutiny, lived Anthony Valentine nnd his wife. Their only child, Robert, sadly dis appointed their hopes. Possibly ow ing to indulgence, the lad was wild and uncontrollable.- After numerous escapa...

Perhaps the quaintest of anniversar ies is that celebrated by a gentleman who commemorates the day on which ho first wore a "tall coat." It was a great day In his life, and he honors the memory of it by a dinner to boys who are just emerging from the Jacket period and entering the ago of tha tall-coat and the frock-coat.
