"on first setting up in business I had to wait for clients, but they were sc long in coin ng that I at last began to despair. Things were at their worst, when a strolling theatrical company, whose stock piece was "Un. cle Tom's Cabin," came into the town. In the afternoon, before they gave their first performance, the man. ager of the company climbed the rick. ety stairway which led to my office. and inquired whether there was any law by -which he could compel one o. the actors in his company to per form his part. He said that this play. sr,,who took the part of Marks, th&lt; lawyer, had for some reason gone oL: strike, and as there was no one tc fi l his place the position. was serious "He wasn't much of an actor," said the manager, "and I would gladly dis pense with him, but there is nobody ir.' this town whom I c...

A PERFECT PIECE OF CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 April 1915
A PERFECT PIECE OF CHINA. When buying a piece of chinaware, •nd especially an expensive piece, the :ustomer is apt to be very particulat .n examining it to see that there are au flaws in it. I suppose if in deal ing with a thoroughly honest trades. man such a customer should ask: 'Is this quite perfect?' the seller would be quite justified in saying, 'Yes, it is-there is no flaw anywhere-it is oerfect.' Now, as a matter of fact, wherever you bought your beautiful piece of china, whoever was the maker of it and whatever the price you paid for it; it is almost certain that it was not perfect. It is said that some years ago noble duke ordered from the Royal Worcester Porcelain Company a spe cially jewelled piece of china for the purpose of presentation. His orders were that it was to be perfect, what, ever it might cost. Mr Binns, who then had the management of the works, gave instructions that the ordel was to be strictly adhered to, if pos sible. A great number of attempts were made-...

A MUCH-TRAVELLED SPINSTER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 April 1915
A MUCHI-TRAVELLED SPINSTER. About twenty years ago a steamship "ompany of Liverpool wished to buy a i.ce of land wnich was owned by a stay-at-home spinster," as, her neigh :ours described her. She sold her land Lt a very low price, but insisted.:upon c clause being inserted in the agreement fving her the right, at any time during 'er life. to travel with a companion in . n," of the- company's vessels. When the agreement was closed she ,old her furniture and went on board' he first outgoing ship belonging to the •empany. For years this shrewd spin ter lived nearly all the time upon one hip or another, frequently accompanied :y a companion, according to agree nent. This was always a person who )therwise would have been a regular passenger, but. who purchased her ticket it a reduced rate by paying the spin iter instead of the company. The comlpany offered her more that to ice the value of the land if she woulk give her the privilege, but this she woult not do., Her reply was: "You got....
