MY VIEWS ON THE MORATORIUM [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

MY VIEWS ON THE MORATORIUM (Supposed to be Written by Mr. Micawber.) "To one," said Mr. Micawber, "who, though by nature hopeful, was on the point of yielding to despair, the idea of a Moratorium presented itself as exceedingly auspicious and, if it is not presumptuous so to term it, Pro vidential. Perhaps I cannot better express my situation at the moment of international1—and financial—crisis than by remarking that our Ship was on the rocks of adversity, that Storm had been our portion for some con siderable period, and that it only needed one final Gust to bring about a calamitous and unprecedented Wreck. I am free to confess that, as an honorable man, I had offered to the various individuals to whom" I was under temporary pecuniary obli gations my promise, in the proper form of writing, to discharge these liabilities as soon as anything should turn up; this proposition, however, they declined--abruptly. "In these blighting circumstances, therefore," continued Mr. Micawber, hasti...

A CROWN LOST AND FOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

A CROWN LOST AND FOUND. Superstition always runs rampant in times like these. It may be true, or it may not, that in the year 1794, when the Prussians marched into Cracow and "the fair land of Poland was ploughed by the hoof of the Prussian intruder," the desire of the King of Prussia to be crowned as the King of Poland could not be fulfilled because the royal crown had disap peared, and for over a century could not be found. Over 100 years after the fall of Cracow a terrific thunder storm burst upon the city, and an an cient elm, standing in a field just out side the walls, was rent asunder, and in its hollow trunk was found hidden the famous crown of Poland's ancient kings. When it was removed, some of the precious stones which had been loos ened in the process of time dropped out, and it is asserted that this was the first omen of the great war now raging. It is in Persia, however, that super stition in regard to talismans exists to an alarming extent, and it is as serted that th...

THE RECRUIT. "Mothers—even mothers who are widows—are asking their sons to join the army." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

THE RECRUIT. "Mothers—even mothers who are widows—are asking their sons to join the army." Willie John slunk back to the little house in Paradise Row where he and his mother lived. There were tea and kippers. But even the kippers tasted sour in Willie John's mouth. ■He had heard the feet of men who drill and the bugle call. And his young heart had leapt and all-the sin ews in him had tautened. The call "Your King and Country need you" had been blazoned on his heart. ■He wanted to fight for his country and for a cause which, in a crude, rough way he felt was just. But he could not go out to fight, as he had his mother to keep. And yet as he passed through the street he felt ashamed—ashamed to be at home while the call of his coun try kept ringing in his ears. He swallowed his kipper and gulp ed his tea, and then his mother said, "Willie John, aren't you ashamed?" "Wot, mother?" "You to be here at home in safety going round with the milk when your country wants you? You to be in Par a...

FIGHTING in the TRENCHES How They Guard Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

I FIGHTING in th; TRENCHES I How They Guard Soldiers. The campaign in France is a "war of trenches, for the opposing armies are both fighting burrowed in the ground, to escape as far as possible the deadly effects of modern artillery fire. Trenches are not roughly con structed, ditch-like holes in the earth, but are scientifically-built shelters for troops. The type of trench varies ac cording to the condition of the coun try in which it is constructed. On flat ground a deep trench in the form of three big steps is generally built. In front of it is often a hedge which conceals it from the enemy, and also a thick mound of earth, for robbing bullets of their velocity. It has been found that two or three inches of soft earth will stop the average shot from inflicting any damage. Earth is also piled behind these trenches to catch splinters from shells bursting in the rear of the troops. In protecting woods a trench. !s con structed, in front of which are placed felled trees with branch...

A CONVIVIAL CROWD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

A CONVIVIAL CROWD. The Honorable Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States, tells the following story:— "A friend of mine was in Canada with a fishing party, and one of the party was imprudent enough to sam ple some whisky that was called 'Squirrel* whisky because it made those who drank it inclined to climb a tree. This gentleman imbibed too much of this dangerous liquid, and the consequence was that when he went to the train to go with the rest of the company he took a train bound south instead of a train bound north. Wishing to recover him, his compan ions telegraphed to the conductor of the south-bound train, 'Send short man named' Johnson back for the north-bound train. He is intoxicated.' Presently they got a reply from the conductor: 'Further particulars need ed. There are thirteen men on the train who don't know either their name or their destination!'" I The Colonel and the Major - were walking up the street. The Colonel was more than middle-aged, very short and very f...

COMMON-SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

COMMON-SENSE. Common-sense in an uncommon de gree is what the world calls wisdom. —Coleridge. Common-sense is the faculty by which we judge of the reasonableness of things.—Kossuth. Common-sense is the knack of see ing things as they are, and doing them as they ought to be done.—C. E. Stowe. Common-sense is the genius of mankind.—Guizot. Common-sense is only a modifica tion of talent. Genius is an exaltation of it.—Bulwer Lytton. Common-sense is the average sen sibility and intelligence of men, un disturbed by individual peculiarities. —"W. R. Alger. Fine sense and exalted sense are not half as useful as common-sense. There are forty men of wit for one man of sense. And he that will carry nothing about him but gold will be every day at a loss for readier change.—-Pope. A reasonable man is one who ac cepts the situation until he can get a better place.

PREVENTION OF A COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 10 April 1915

PREVENTION OF A COLD. A person who habitually "catches cold" should have his nose and throat thoroughly examined. The nasal, post nasal, and accessory sinuses should receive particular attention, and any necessary operation should not be shunned, in order that these parts should be placed in thorough working order. Have a good supply of fresh, pure air at all times. Vitiated and con taminated air tends to infection by lowering the vocal resisting powers. Hot, crowded, badly-ventilated rooms, halls, or theatres predispose likewise. The healthy action of the skin should be maintained. A cold rub down with quick reaction is a splen did prevention of colds. Clothing should be regulated according to the demands of the weather. Just enough should be worn to keep one comfort ably warm. Too much clothing con duces to infection as well as too little. Direct infection should be carefully guarded against. Keep your distance from a person who sneezes or coughs, especially in the first stages of...

Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 April 1915

The voices of motoring may be said to constitute a paradox. When the motor car was in its infancy, aud the influence was weak and doubtful, its voice was loud, raucous, and disagreeable, the sub ject of much chaff in some quarters, and of annoyance in many others. Fifteen years or so ago this voice was heard grunting, snorting, bellowing along the j country roads. In fact, one of the evils from which the new mode of locomotion, suffered was that attributed to its noisy voice, which acted as a disturber of the peaceful solitude of the country-side, frightened pedestrians and horses, and was the cause of much of the early antagonism. Now, when the in fluence oE the motor vehicle is strong and virile; with unbounded possibilities before it, aud its power if felt on land, on sea, and in the air, its voice is little more than a murmur. As the strength and hold of the motor movement in creased, its outward and audible sign di minished to a comforting, rhythmic purr. No longer can the voic...

WAY OF THE WORLD. The hen that cackles loudest may not lay the largest eggs; The mule that kicks the hardest may not have the longest legs; The tree that is the tallest may not bear the sweetest fruit; And the girl that is the fairest may not wear the smallest hoot. The man whose brow is highest may not always know the most; The hero who is bravest may not make tlie loudest boast; The arm that is the strongest may not have the farthest reach; And the man who talks the longest may not make the finest speech. The rose that is the reddest may not have the sweetest scent; The man whose strut is proudest may not be most prominent; The woman who has jewels that she measures by the peck May not have the slimmest fingers or the most delightful neck. The man who works the hardest may not draw the highest pay; The one with deepest knowledge may not have the most to say; But the man who is most modest gets . the last seat in the rear, And the one who blow's his bugle is the one whom people hea...

THE CITY OF THE TSAR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 April 1915

THE CITY OF THE TSAR. The building and maintenance of Petrograd mark a continuous struggle with nature. The soil is a marsh so deep and spongy that a solid founda tion in many places can only be ob tained by a subterranean scaffolding of piles. The weather is severe—bitter frosts in winter and scorching heat in summer. For sis months each year the Neva is frozen solid. An old legend has it that after Peter the Great chose the site of Petrograd he noticed a heavy ring above the trunk of a tree. He turned to one of the Finnish fishermen who stood near, and asked him to explain the meaning of it. "That," replied the fisherman, "is the spot to which the floods of the Neva reached last spring." "..You're mad!" said Peter. "You're mad! It can't be. It is impossible!" It was not long however before he was convinced of the truth of the fisherman's statement. One year after, the work on the city had begun the western winds drove the water from the Gulf of Finland down the Neva. In 1712 the f...

WHAT ENGLAND EXPECTS A ROMANCE OF TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 17 April 1915

WHAT ENGLAND EXPECTS A ROMANCE OF TO-DAY. War had been declared. .The whole country spoke, thought, wrote of noth- - ing else. The red flame lighted on the distant Belgian earth was now flaring over Europe, and England had sent j forth her challenge. In clubs, in res taurants, on the t^ps of buses, in . shady parks, wherever men and wo men came together, the word "War" trembled on their lips. To speak of ( other things was futile and foolish. j Yet in London, in the heart of the Empire, with the newsboys shouting ( their war specials and the streets hum-! ming with the tread of khaki-clad men, . Captain Frank Carsdale was able to ^ sit in the lonely little room near Ken smgton Gardens and think of other . things.

For a woman had intervened, j and the woman was his wite. i Upstairs he knew that two solemn fac d men were holding a little court...
