' MAGNIFICENT SIGHT.' An old engine-driver was getting his eyesigh* tested by a doctor who lived in a house facing a common. Thu doctor used to say to his patients, ' Look over there aud tell mo what, you can soe.' When the driver learned he waj. to be tested he arranged with his sou to tako his bicycle half a mile across and be uiliug it.. In due time the old man was led to the window,, the doctor saying, as usual, ?' WuaC do you see ?' The old man, peering out, said, ' I see t. young man stooping beside his biuyclo.' ' Do you i' said the doctor, ' I don't see anything at all.' ' Nonsense,' said the driver ; ' why he is. oiliDg it.' The doctor took up a pair' of glawts and' plainly saw the same. ' Magnificent sight !' he said. To this day the driver is drawing bis weeklf. wages.

THE STORY OF A GREAT PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

THE STO11Y OF A GREAT PICTURE. In his first genre pictures, Meissonier followed the traditions which r/ere in force in his youth in the French schools of painting. First bits of detail, carefully studied from naturo or from Ihe living model, in crayon ; then, still iu crayon, and after the living model, the whole composition. This composition he reproduced without variation in his picture, the most minute efiects of light being indicated in the drawing, It was not long, however, before ho became convinced that this system led to monotony of colour, and without deflecting from the principle of^doiug nothing except from nature, which ha had made his rule from the beginning, he re placed the crayon study by tho painted study. At the same time, in order to leavo nothing to chance, he started the practice, whenever ho began a picture, of arranging the sceuery ho was to reproduce in a corner of his studio. This dune, he placed tbe model among the scenery, as if in u tableau-vivaut. His At...

SOME MISQUOTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

SOME MISQUOTATIONS. An interesting book might be written on mis quotations. Two or three typical oues occur to e at the moment. Butler's He that complies against 'his will . Is of bis own opinion still, .id asually quoted '???.-.'.. A man convinced against his will Ia,of tbe same opinion still. In Shakespeare's 'I'll make assurance double sure,' 'double' is commduy changed to ' duubly.' Iu Milton's ' The last infirmity of noble mind ' the last word is usually quoted in tbe plural. Mr. Gladstone's .' Streak of silver sea ' is often ' Silver streak of sea,' and thereby marred.] ' It is curious that a mind so imbued as Mil ton's, not only with classical literature, but also with an ' accurate knowledge of classical geo graphy and topography, should have umdu, within the compass of the four following lines two blunders which a schoolboy cuuld correct : And more endangered than wheu Argo passed, * Through Bospborus, betwixt tbe Jutting Rooks ; Or, when Ulysses on the larboard shunned Cha...

ROMANCE IN A REGIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

ROMANCE IN A REGIMENT. A rather romantic circumstance attended the departure of tbe 1st Light Infantry Ri gimeut of the British German Legion, which left Spit head for Balaclava on Tuesday. On Monday uight one of the privates was discovered to be a woman, auu a very tine, nancisome, young Frenchwoman, too, the wife of a soldier of tbe regiment, who is a Swiss. This gallant wife regularly enlisted, and passed muster, it would appear, afterwards. On discovery of her sex, the fact was reported to thu Colonel, who ordered her to be landed, but she begged so hard, and ber appeal was so heartily and gener ally supported by the comrades of her husband, that she has been allowed to accompany him in her capacity as a soldier, pro tem., as she ex pressed her determination to fight and die ill the samo service as her husband The enthusi asm of the regiment is universal ut this un looked-for episode in the outset of their martial career. So pleased were a number of visitors to the ship, officer...

Clarence Harbor Scheme. Proposed by Mr. Archibald. 1. Necessity for a New Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

Clamee Harbop Setae. Proposed by Mr. Archibald. 1. Necessity for a New Scheme. The best possible warrant for the production of a now harbor scheme for tho Clarence River is fur nished by tho practical failure of all past attempts to improve the present entrance. Up to tho year 1884 . tho sum of .£200,000 had been sunk upon harbor ?works having this ohjcot in view, but without tan gible benefit to the navigation, when the late Sir John Coode was invited to deal with the question. After an exhaustive examination, however, that nminnnt; rmimippr found thn difficulties of the case SO ''formidable as to preclude the possibility of any material improvement, except at an almost prohib itive expenditure on breakwaters, training walls, and blasting operations. His complete scheme pro posed an outlay upon such wonts of £580,900, but promised no greater depth upon tho bar than 18 feet at low water, which was moreover to bo tho doptb upon the improved reef inside tho bar. Such a moagro result i...

THE EYE Of THE NEEDLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE. Glias Howe almost beggared himself before he discovered whero the eye of the needle of a sewing machine should be located. His original idea was to follow the model of the eye at the heel. It never occurred to him that it should be placed near the point, and lie mi^ht have failed altogether if he had not dreamed ho was building a sewing machine for a savage king in a stcange country. Just as in the actual waking experience, he was rather perplexed about the needle'* oye'. He thought the king gave him 24 hours to complete a machine and make it sew. If not finished within that time death was to be tho punishment. Howe worked stud worked and puzzled and puzzled aud finally gave it up. Then he thought he was taken out to be exeeu ted. He noticed that the warriors carried spears that were pierced near the head. Instantly came the solution of the difficulty, and while the inventor vrm begging for time be awoke. It was 4 o'clock in the morning. He jumped out of bed, ...

THE SUN'S TERRIFIC HEAT. Wo believe that wo are speakiug the truth when we say that there is not more than one person in each ten thousand of our readers who has anything like a correct idea of what an icicle forty-live miles in diametur aud 200,000 milns in lmifffch wnuld look- lik(» It is also true that there is no necessity for one being provided with a mind that would enable him to form a correct conception of such a gigantic cylinder of ice, for there is no pro bability that anyone will ever live to see an icicle even half so large. Yet it is interesting to .know that Sir John Herschel, the great astronomur, used such au ideal icicle ns an illustration in one of his articles on the in tensity of the snn'a heat. After giving the diameter of tho great blaz ing orb, and a calculation on the amount of heat radiated by each square foot of its im mense surface, he closed by saying that if it were possible for an icicle forty-live miles in diameter and 200,000 miles long to plunge int...

SPARTAN LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

SPARTAN LAWS. . '...: ? ; Among the Spartans one. kind of theft was encouraged, and even recognised by the law, andby the consent of the citizens, and that wastheir stealing herbs or roots from the garr . .lens and public baths ; but if they were caught in the act they were punished for want of dex terity. The design of the Spartan legislator,, in allowing this practice, was to iuspira the Spartan youths, who were designed for war, with a view to self-defence and to extent of dominion ; wit, boldness, subtlety, and address; to inure them betimes to the life of a soldier ; to teach them to live upon a little, and to be. able to shift for themselves. Corpulency incurred public contempt, and sometimes banishment. Magnificent sepul chres were forbidden, . nor was the plainest or most modest inscription; permitted, except for such ns were. slain in battle, or. for women who had devoted them selves to a religious life.

It has always been tho ofiort of tho proprietoro to make their pills juBt as tiny and small as possiblo, becauso small pills are so easy to take, and all such ingrodionta as liquorice and sugar, nddod to tho ordinary pills to bring tho same up to a cortain size, are ommited, Gould's Pills contain neither aloeanor mercury — the bases of most modicines and pills — tho entire formula being purely vegetable, and ib is the pill to take when all other medicines and physicians have failed.
