The Way of the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

The Way -of the World. Ivaugh, and the world laughs with you, Weep, and you weep alone; :. For this brave old earth must' 'borrow its mirth, It has trouble enough of its own. Sing, and the hills will answer, Sigh, it is lost on the air : The echoes bound to a joy fill sound, But shrink from voicing care. Rejoice, and men will seek you, ' Grieve,' and they 'turn and go ; ' ''The}' want full measure for all your pleasure, But do not want your woe. ttl-hA WHHHhHR WlIyCOX.

THE WAR SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

THE WAR SCARE. Say ! What do you think of the war scafe^-^ ?'?? ? ?-.'? And all the terrible fuss ? Its fever seems to catch everyone, Though I don't think it troubles us. The flying machines of the Germans Are talked of the wide world o'er ; And the Dreadnoughts of good old England, And the peril of the English shore. They'd need to be very sharp people — To catch England unaware, But I guess it will count up to nothing ; I don't believe any would dare. But we'er loyal to our king and our country. We'll stick up for England too, So now, three cheers for England: — And three for our boys so true! E. C. Mrs. Crabshaw — ' I'll go home to my mother at once.' Crabshaw — ' ! I wish you would. Here's the money.' Mrs. Crabshaw — ' But this isn't enough my dear, for a return ticket.' The origin of the saying, ' ' There's many a slip, ' etc., is thus stated : An ancient king of an island in the Grecian archipelago, who cruelly oppressed his slaves, ordered wine made from the grapes in his vi...

THREE KISSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

THREE KISSES. The purest kiss In the world is this — The kiss that a mother lays On her child's fresh lips As he blithely trips To meet the world and its ways. The sweetest kiss In the world is this — The first long kiss of love, When time is not, And the earth's forgot. And Eden drops from above. The saddest kiss In the world is this — The kiss on unanswering clay,t When death lips tell We must sob farewell Till the dawn of the Judgment Day.

Women who have Helped Their Husbands to Fame. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909

Women who have Helped Their Husbands to Fame. ' She was my star, my angel. Without her I should never have been the man I am.' Such was one of the maii}^ tributes which Bismarck, the 'Iron Chancellor,' paid to his wife, whom, from the day he first met her in 1846, to the dav of her death, fifty -one years later, he loved with an affection that never swerved for one moment. It was another striking case of love at first sight. Bismarck had attended the wed ding of a friend, and among the brides maids was a tall, slim, black-haired girl, Johanna von Puttkamer. She was his fate. But the father of Johanna hesitated about trusting his daughter's happiness to ' wild Bismarck.' The future Chancellor, how -ever, in his usual masterful way, took matters ttito his own hands. He posted off to his sweetheart's house, took Johanna in his arms - and she was nothing loth - for her heart was already given to him, and thus were her parents led to give their con -sent. a musician's romance. In that de...

The 'augurs were consulted first in order that they might watch' for favorable omens for the choice of the eventful day. This done, and the other arrangements completed, the doors of the bridegroom's house were wreathed with garlands, and the bride's pro cession started from tier father's house. The Roman bride wore a long white robe decor ated with ribbons and purple fringe, and confined at the waist by a belt called ' The Girdle of Venus.' Aflame-coloured bridal veil, and flan ie colored sandals completed her costume. On arriving at her future husband's abode, the bride was lifted over the doorstep, and before entering the house she bound the door posts with wool, after which her distaff and spindle Were given her ; she was next placed on a sheepskin, and the keys of the house were put into her hands The next ceremony of the bridegroom, receiving her with fire mid water, was probably s...
