"So he did, but for years after hi' was married he ,rsed to wheel the children in a peranibulator!" Who are in greatest nceed er ",cog nition? To whom will kind words be , real help? L.,,r us consider t'iu alaims of those a;boiti tW The colonel remonstrated with his subaltern time after time, but all in vain. The latter was a horn incurable gambler. One day, however, just about the time when he was transferred, his old colonel met the new one and gave the latter a word of warning.

Hiawatha Dead. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Hiawatha Dead. Hiawatha the last hereditary chief of the Iroquois Indians, is dead. ie had presided for many y-ears over the remlnant of the tribe which set tled in Ontario. Though the Iro q:ois are greatly scattered and number fewer than 12,000 in all, those on the Canadian reservation are regarded as the head tribe, and the chief, ITaiwatha, waq looked up to as the chieftain' of all the Iro quois. His successor will have to be elect ed by the tribe, because his only son, Prince Lazarus, is not a can didate for the leadership, since he, like many other Iroquois Jndians, hadl adapted himself to modern civi lisation, and at present he is study ing for the Mlethodist ministry, It was the custom of the Iroquois to name the clief's eldest son -Hiau nl tha, which means a person of miraculous birth ; but the late chie's son was barptsed Lazarus. WhiIe most of the Iroquois are farmers, and 'many of them have now attained to considerable dis tinction in other pursuits, ind their reservation...

Protestant Alliance. ROYAL CHARTER LODGE. The first quarterly meeting of the now year of the Royal Charter Iodge, No. 50, P.A.F.S.O.A.. was held at the Rechabite Hall, Brunswick. on W\ednesday. evening, the 18th.

Wilkins, took the chair punctually at 8 o'clock, and conducted a record meeting, the details of which brethren not present must await for the min utes of next meeting, and as thbEre is likely to be some discussion on a mo tion included therein, anotlher big meeting is anticipated.

Speed of the Wind. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
Speed- of the Wind. Up to the present the greatest speed of the wind has never been measured, for the simple reason that no instrument has yet been in lented capable of doing so. In.. 1878 an anemometer on Mt. 'Washington registered 1S6 miles an hour~, which is the highest velocity ona! recrd, and last November a Robinson aneminmeter n'as blown away, in Jamnaica, when registering 120 miles per hour. A tornado, however, blows far nharder than that. At various times attempts have been made to esti mate the velocity of wind in a tor nado by observing its effects. For instance, in 1875 a board of pine wood was bIlown against, and right through, a telegraph-pole; whilst during the same storm anotheir plank was driven three inches into -the trunk of a tree. It was calculated that such -ef fects could only havre beeni. piro d uced by a force little leSs thaii that of a cannon-ball-that is to say, the wind must have been tri veiling at the rate of between six and eight hundred, miles an hou...
HOW THEY LOST THEIR LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
HOW THEY LOSlh THEIR LUCK. In dawdling. In decision. In poor judgment. In worrying and fretting. In magnifying difficulties. In trusting unworthy people. In trying to get rich quickly. In letting their ambition cool. In not daring to take chances. In making a business of pleasure. In waiting for something to turn up In working only when they felt like it. In neglecting their personal ap pearance. In looking on the dark side of every thing. In over-confidence born of a first easy victory. In not being ready for the oppor tunity when it came. In dreaming of great things instead of doing the little ones at hand.

AN HISTORIC CANNON BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
AN ITISTORIC CANNON BALL. The discovery, at a village near King's Lynn, of a cannioni ball re puted to be a relic of the Parlia mientuary Wars recalls the fact thatt in Lynn itself there is still carefully preserved a missile of like 1:iterest; Almost within the :shadow of St2 Margaret's Church is an old en trance gateway, leading to what is known as "Hampton Court," and i suspended from the roof of this passage, by a piece of hoop iron, is an ancient cannon ball. The shot itself is said to be the identical one fired by Cromwell's soldiers from West Lynn into St. Margaret's Church on Sunday, Sep-: tember 3, 1643, during a siege which lasted nearly three weeks, when the King's Lynn garrison of about 5,000 men had to capitulate and pay a fine of over £3,000 to obviate the distress of being plua-. dered. The missile referred to was fired during Divine service, when, accord ing to an old chronicler, "it did no further harm than to shatter a pil iar into a thousand pieces, .:and frighten...

A DAY OF CARNAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
A DAY OF CAINAGEG . When the light, of dawn stole quiet Iv over the Sudanese desert on the morning of September 2, 1898, it revealed the spectacle of war brood ing amid the peace and solitude of Nature. It was the last day of Mahdism, for the Khalifa, with his dusky hordes, had at last been "run to earth" in Omdurman, and Kitchener, with his army, had re solved that this day Mahdismn should be swept finally off the face of the earth. Soon after dawn a long, fluttering line of white appleared on the hori zon. It was the enemy advancing quickly over the yellow sands. With a voice of thunder the British guns sploke. It was a tornado of death. But as the fanatics were mowed dcown by the Maxims, the lines were reformed. It was not a battle : it was an execution. The lust of blood,. however, was on the Der vishes, and it meant victory or P'aradise now for themn. With* rush after rush the Khalifa's uarriors came otn over the dlead bodies of their comrades, only to be mown down in turn. Nev...

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. POIGNANT POLAR TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. POTGNANT POLAR 'I'RAGED'. The tale of the Gordon- Ilennett Expedition of 1S79 is one of the most poignant of Polar tragedies; The Jeannette left San Francisco in July, 1879, and until Seiitember 2 new's was regularly received. Tihen came silence. A whole yWar passed, and still the relatives of the absent crew watched and waited in vain. It was on September 6, 1879, that the doomed vessel was definite ly imnprisoned by the ice. With a stout ship, provisioned and equip ped to pass an Arctic winter, the crew felt little anxiety, But when the long Polar night of three months had passed, the summer of 1880 came; the unrelenting 'floe still held their little hark in its icy grip. At last hope told the flattering tale of release; but at the very mo ment when the ice-field broke up and gave the prisoners their long wished-for liberty, huge icebergs crushed the little vessel in their iron grip. Two hours after she was at the bottom of the ocean, and her wrecked crew...

SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 27 February 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA lAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times, "reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps. consigned to Bombay Town Hail, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to th!s (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent. were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.
