MAN'S GREATEST PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 4 March 1914
MAN'S GREATEST PLEASURE. Fancy a man ever being In low spIrits! Life is too short for such (writes Lord Beaconsfield). The most mnfortuna-e wretch alive caIculates un consciously that It Is better to Ifve tian to die. WVeIl, then, he has some thing in his favor. Existence Is a plea sure. and the greatest The world cannot rob us of that; and If it is bet ter to live than to die, It Is better to Iive in a good humor than a bad one. If a man be convinced that existence Is the greatest pleasure, his happiness may be Increased by good fortune, but It will be essentially independent ofi It. Hie who feels that the greatest source of pleasure always remains to him ought never to be miserable. The sun shines on all; every man can so to sleep; If you cannot ride a fine hIorse, It is .somethIng to look'lupon one; If you have not a fine dinner, there Is some amusement in a crust of bread and choeese. Take the world as you find it: enjoy everythlng.

EXPENSIVE ELEPHANTS NEW REGULATIONS FOR HUNTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 4 March 1914
EXPENSIVE ELEPHANTS NEW REGULATIONS FOR IIUNTERS. The white man is no longer free to shoot elephants at his will and plea sure in French WVest Africa (says the Paris correspondent of. the "'Dally News :and Leader"). The Governor has issued severe provisional regula tions, pending the promulgation of a decree on this subject. Every European who has a regu lar licence to carry arms, and who wishes to hunt elephants, must make a declaration and pay a tax fixed by the district governors, which must not be less than £40. This Is only good for one year (or less, if the decree is issued before the lapse of a year), and only entitles tte holder to kill two elephants. Every elephant shot in excess of the two must be de clared, and paid for at the rate of at least £20 per head, and not more than five in all may be killed in the year. The spoils of an elephant killed in self-defence must be handed over to the district authority.
