HIS OWN MESSENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
HIS OWN MESSENGER. No one enjoys feeling that ho has been the object of a clever trick; yet there are circumstances in which pique must yield to the humor of the situ'-t'.on. In the days when Califor nia did not seem as near the East as travelling by rail has since made it, a man entered the office of a San Francisco banker, and said "I want exchange for this on New York." "All right, what is it?" The man looked around him fear fully and then brought out a packet. "It's twenty-five thousand dollars in greenbacks." "I guess I can do it! Going East?" "Yes; I'm going to-morrow. I don't want to carry all this with me. Could not do it. Sure to get robbed. So give me a draft." "Oh, seeing it's you, one per cent. two hundred and fifty dollars." "It goes." The banker made out a draft on New York, and as he handed it to the man, asked him if he would mind taking along a small parcel, to be de livered in New York to the banker's brother. The man was willing to un dertake the errand, and the b...
WOMAN'S WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
WOMAN'S WAYS. Mr. Myrtle had a dear little wife of whom he was very fond, and, let it ^e said, Mrs. M. in turn doted on Mr. M. So far, so good. But, and this is It. Mr. M. had no hankering alter fine clothes, and preferred the happy dustman etiect. Mrs. M., on the other hand, wanted him to look like a modern Beau Brummel. And Mr. M. had a "straw" - a boater-an ancient boater with many, many signs and years of wear. It was sunburnt and ragged. The edges were frayed, the black ribbon had turned a rusty brown, and its shape was drooping. But this "straw" was dear to nir. M. After Mrs. M., it was the apple of his eye. He would have slept in it had he been able. To Mrs. M., however, it was the most ghastly piece of headgear she knew of or had ever seen, and she schemed hard for its demise. So one dismal day when hubby don toed his bowler and searched out the family gamp, Mrs. M. set to work to renovate the hat. Some salts of lemon deftly applied removed the stains of ages, the time-honor...
WHAT THE WISE MEN HAVE SAID ABOUT CHOOSING A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
WHAT THE WISE MEN HAVE SAID ABOUT CHOOSING A WIFE. It is one of the tragedies pf iife that bo many men take less ^uds.1?® ^ in choosing a wife than in selecting a. tie or deciding on the pattern o£ a "uit; and this, although they know .hat the whole of their future depends largely on the prudence of their choice. . f A sudden glance from a pair or sweet eyes, a pair of pouting lips, the witchery of a dimple that comes and -oes, a daintily-poised head, a trim jind graceful figure, the sweet modula tion of a voice-any one of such wiles of Cupid is often sufficient to turn tho sanest heads; aud thenceforth there .s no peace until its owner is won, lor jotter or for worse." That the lady of the daintilj-car ried head and sweet eyes or dimples nay have no single qualification to make a man happy as his wife is a chought that never troubles him; or if. it does obtrude its unwelcome pres ence it receives short shrift. In his eyes she is "all glorious" without and within, the one woman in a...
A MAN'S FAVORITE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
A MAN'S FAVORITE. A man may not acknowledge it, but he secretly admires the girl who is her mother's right hand in house hold matters, and who is not above taking an interest in the most trivial things in connection with home du ties He likes to think that the girl he hopes to marry can, in an emer gency, turn her hand to anything, from cooking the family dinner to making her own clothes. He wants her also to be unselfish enough to give up her own pleasures to benefit an other, mid not consider herself ill used at having to do so. This girl can sometimes talk of more import ant things than dress, and can listen intelligently when deeper subjects are introduced. Matrimony has its storms and trials, and to weather these storms something more than a merry heart and a nice complexion are need ful. The difference between a cat and a' wasted opportunity is that the cat comes back.
THIN-SKINNED PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
THIN-SKINNED PEOPLE. Those thin-skinned, sensitive people -how difficult, nay, how exasperating, they ;~r-e. to deal with. They are eter nally on the look-out for some griev ance, some slight that was never in tended, and, having found one, they diligently nurse it until it has grown to gigantic dimensions. By this time it has become more real and Import ant than ever, and one may as well try to empty the ocean as to remove the hurt to their feelings. It is noth ing to them that everybody in the home is supremely miserable. AVhat matters? Have not they themselves good reason to be disturbed and irri table? It is a pity that the self-con sciousness which induces a mental at titude of this troublesome kind had not been exercised by their parents in early childhood-the best time for correcting a tendency to morbidness.
THE MECHANICAL MILWER AND THE LABOR PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
THE MECHANICAL MILWER AND THE LABOR PROBLEM. There is no doubt that the mechan ical milker must come into general use on all dairy farms to solve the labor problem. Whore one has only a few cows, and it is possible for him to secure such milkers that he is cer tain liis cows will be milked satisfac torily, and regularly, there is a doubt as to whether lie should change meth ods. On the other hand, there arc thousands of those who milk great numbers of cows, and their lives be come burdensome because of the im possibility of having the milking pro perly done. The milking machine has some time since come into very general and suc cessful use. It is true that occasion ally a cow will cease to lie profitable when milked by the mechanical milk er. There is no particular reason why the milking machines should be con demned, however, because it is a well known fact that on all dairy farms, even where cows are carefully milked by hand, cows are sometimes ruined by erroneous feeding or other...
CHAPTER XL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
CHAPTER XL. Quietly through the Court came the voice of the usher: "Ernest Sihstone." Again the public, the fashionable beauties, the dandies craned forward to view a man who was lcnown to many as a financier, to many as a theatrical manager, to all as a man whoso name had been frequently men tioned during the hearing in connec tion with Lady Pettigew's. He stepped quietly into the box, and stood, limp and gaunt of figure like some impassive automaton, whose red beard worked on pulling a string. "You are a theatrical manager?" be gan Sir. Candy. "Among other things-yes." "When did you first meet Lady Pet tigew?" "During the run of 'The Nurse Girl' at my Whitehall Theatre." ".You fell in love with her?" Ernest Sibstone did not spare him self in his hunger for revenge. "I must have fallen insanely in love with her." "You wished to marry her?" "Not at first.*" "What then?" Ernest Sibstone's voice was hard and dry, his speech was slow; he dwelt on every word: "I tried the effect of jewe...
TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
TO-DAY. A young man born in this country to-day has reason to congratulate him self. He comes at a time when our young men have before themselves greatest duties and the greatest re wards. The very atmosphere of the land is instructive and educative. It is in the air that there are important things to do, and nobody lacks urging and incentive to prepare himself for future duties. He can see on every hand fields which are sure to deve lop into which he may enter, and, by striving with brain and brawn, secure himself high . position. From farming to war the chances of success are in numerable and the profits large. They are ready to hand . for those who are just entering the world as infants and those who brave it as young men of age. The twentieth century holds something for all.
WHEN WORN OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
WHEN WORN OUT. There was once a man who said ho hated sleep because of tho interesting tilings that might bo happening while he was unconscious of them. This sounds like a fairy tale to the tired working women and housewives who long for more rest than the de mands of time will allow them. But these can relax for a time even in the midst of business. It may not bo easy, but it is possible. When manifold irritations wear too greatly on tired nerves, the signal has been given and the victim may know that if she does not take five minutes' repose she may need five hours later on. As soon then, as the marks of ex haustion and weariness begin to ap pear-as soon as one answers sharp ly, forgets well-known facts and words, loses control of one's lingers, and is prepared to laugh or cry at the smallest thing it is time to let things drop and to seek whatever quiet lies nearest. H is by 110 means necessary that one shcukl sleep or even lie down for the few minutes that are all that can usual...

A New Ailment. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
A New Ailment. "My husband is so poetic," said one lady to another in a motor bus. There upon an honest-looking woman sitting opposite said, "Excuse me, m'm, but have you ever trieu rubbing his joints with hartshorn liniment?" There are lots of complaints thai are catching, bur experience is not. one of them. Unasked advice is a drug in -the market. She: 1 always think of motoring as the poetry of motion. He: Yes, until the machine breaks down; then it becomes blank verse! A girl married to I ho wrong man changes from an angel into a cat; married to the right one, she is an angel all her life.
AN OLD-FASHIONED GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
AN OLD-FASHIONED GARDEN, Strange, is it not? She was making lier garden, Planting the old-fashioned flowers that day, Bleeding-hearts tender and bachelor's buttons, Spreading the seeds in the old-fash ioned way. Just in the old-fashioned way, too, our quarrel Grew, until angrily she set nie free, Planting, indeed, bleeding-hearts for the two of us, Ordaining bachelor's buttons for me. Strange, was it not? But seeds plant ed in anger Sour in the earth and ere long all decay, Withered the bleeding-hearts, 'V'gh't ed the buttons, And we were wed-in the old-fash ioned way.

A Long Memory. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
A Long Memory. A South American farmer had a ne gro slave to whom he was very much attached; nothing on earth would malce him part with this slave-whose name, by the way, was Joseph. One day, with a great buzz and whizz of excitement, the devil appear ed to the farmer, and said: "I want Joseph." "You can't have him," said, the far mer. "Why not?" asked the devil. "Because," replied the farmer, "Jo seph is absolutely indispensable to me -I would not part with him under any circumstances." "Why is he so indispensable?" in terrogated His Satanic Majesty. "On account of his wonderful me mory-he never forgets anything, and by this marvellous memory he has made himself so valuable that I could not possibly get along without him; however, if you can make Joseph for get anything-which I am sure you can't-he's yours." "Where is he?" "Ploughing in the field." The devil went to the field, found Joseph ploughing, and said to him: "Joseph do you like eggs?" "Yes," said Joseph, and the devil disa...

A CHRISTMAS RECONCILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
A CHRISTMAS RECONCILIATION. By G. B. BURGIN. The "trouble" began a month before Christmas in the confectioner's shop at Willowgate. Ethel Maudsley, beau tiful, young, accomplished, fair as a lily, and with Innocent eyes of hea venly blue, had decided to treat Miss sVi-unie Smythe to tea there and con fide to her certain news of a very im portant audi startling nature. She had selected this particular shop because Baulks, tlie confectioner, was renown ed for a kind of tart which, as Dick Leighton said, "knocked the spots off the maids of honor you buy at Rich mond railway station." -Miss Smythe, who had been "cross ed in love," was inclined to cross oth ers, and j;ot knowing that Dick's mother sat on the other side of the Japanese screcn which Baulks had set up in order to suggest a foreign atmosphere in the shop-it wanted it badly sometimes-acidly remarked that "it was a thousand pities that a ' fat, middle-aged woman like Mrs. bcighto-n should make herself ridicul ous in q hobble s...

THE VIXEN " By LEW IN FITZHAMON. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXXIX. When the Court resumed after lun cheon, the usher culled James Mor dan, alias Velvetty Arthur, the notori ous criminal, the racecourse crook and the friend and associate of the cab-driver's daughter. In order to live up to a friend who had married into the "hupper ten," Velvetty Arthur was arrayed in habili ments which can only he described as spectacular! Joseph in his coat of many colors, coiild he have seen Arthur, would have simply sat down and wept. A white collar gripped his neck like a dog-coliar, and its pressure ap peared to force the bristles out of his head, at the same time keeping quan tities of blood in it, so that his face was dyed a rich crimson lake, deep ening to purple about the nose and gills. From the cauliflower tie, pre viously wound several times' round the collar, rose a dazzling horseshoe, which would lit a donkey's hoof; t...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
II. Within a fortnight at the beginning of this vendetta, both ladies had bro ken down in health. Peace was in the air everywhere except in their hearts. They had been friends-warm friends -and everyone knew It. When they passed each other in the street, it hurt them both; their health gave way. Even the irascible Mies Smythe apologised and exonerated Ethel from all share In her remark; but Mrs. Leighton took no notice of the letter. Though Dick was her idol, and the knowledge that ho was fiercely un happy made her unhappy, too, she could not brins be'-jelf to make any advances to Ethel and her mother. People would meet her with the cus tomary congratulations about Christ mas, and then suddenly remember and awkwardly turn the conversation. Ae for Mre. Maudsley, who was the mire delicate of the two, the eight of Ethel's misery made her worse. And yet she could not give way either. Dick and Ethel were too honorable to do anything clandestinely. They suffered in silence and looked acro...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
III. Christmas morning dawned very sadly for Ethel and Dick. With the exception of the servants, they were alone in their respective houses, and each wae inclined to feel that, in their particular case, Christmas was a hol low mockery. But the enigmatic Dr. Tilson held out hopes of a peaceful ending to ail their troubles, and they went to church feeling that at least they would not be denied the solace of seeing ono another. The holly wreaths twined round the pillars, the impressive music, the beautiful flow ers, the kind, homely sermon of the old vicar helped to soothe their trou bled spirits, although they dreaded the rest of the lonely day; for the doctor had told them not to accept any of the invitations which were showered upon them both. He hoped, he added, to have a surprise in store for them. At the Rest Cure Home, although Christinas Day had hitherto been a time of quiet, happiness and peace, things began badly for Mrs. Leighton and Mrs. Maudsley. Each, when ehe awoke, foun...
