A Day in the Country. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914

A Day In the Country. The fresh-ooraplexioned young police man from the country betrayed by his eelf-consclouB air the disquietude he felt on first going on duty in a Lon don street. He was particularly dis turbed in mind by the behavior of a street arab, who sat on the kerb smok ing a succession of "fag ends," and regarding him with a fixed serenity of gaze worthy of Sam Weller himself. Waiting until he thought he was not noticed, the new constable ap proached the urchin. "Now, then," began the policeman, "what are you sitting there for all this time?" "Takin' a day off In the country," replied the aTab. The Inexperienced officer, perfectly new to the species, stared at the pro duct of slumdom in undisguised amaze ment. "Takin' a day off in the country!" he echoed. "Why, wherever can you see the country from 'ere?" "In your face, of course." replied the alert arab, at last, swiftly vacating the kerb.

TRUE COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914

TRUE COURAGE. •Tt it no easy thing," remarked s jwntal authority, "to distinguish be tween true courage and qualities which may take its place, such as stolidity, lack of imagination, and iu •eligibility. "I once listened to a man who, as a traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and who boasted of the dangerous situations which he had faced while his compan ions had run away. When I came to know him better, I found that his cour age was chiefly a matter of insensibil ity and dulness of imagination. Had her realised his peril to the same <;x tent as his companions he would with out doubt have taken to his heels with the rest __ "Most of us have laughed at the ex cuse of the timid soldier who com plained that in battle his legs ran •way with, him of their own accord.

HOW A PRISONER WAS RESCUED. A Clever Ruse. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 14 February 1914

rlUW A PRJ80NER WAS RESCUED v A Clever Ruse. Ia the battle of Poitiers, 1856, a number of Scottish soldiers fought on : the side of the French, and several ol j them were taken prisoners by the Eng* j lish. Amongst them was Sir Archi- j bald Douglas, half-brother of Lord Wil- j liam Douglas. Being dressed in a suit ; of splendid armor, the victors thought i they had captured— as indeed they had —some great nobleman. Several of j the English were about to strip eff his armor, when Sir William Ramsay, of j Colluthie, who was also a prisoner, j happening to catch Sir Archibald's ! eye, gave him a meaning look.

Douglas, seemingly thoroughly cow ed, went humbly forward and drew off a boot, with which Sir William began to beat him.
