VALUE OF A DIRECT GAZE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 May 1915
V*ALUE OF A DIRECT GAZE. The effect of a full, straightforward gaze on the person to whom one i3 speaking is not as a rule-sufficiently >xmnsidered. And yet there is nothing in personal intercourse that carries more weight than a direct gaze. 1( :s the medium for sympathy, the men. tal telegraphy that brings speaker and hearer in touch with each other. Every one has experienced talking tc k person whose wanderi:?g glances be. tray his Jack of interest, but one ofter fails to analyse the subtle, attractiox if an attentive eye that stimulate: mand inspirits one all unconsciously while one converses. Children should be taught early in life to look fear lessly and confidingly into the eyes of Lny one- who addresses them; the nabit will be of good service to themn in after years. The prevailing ide' hat shifty eyes betoken duplicity., however, while a steadfast regard shows an honest disposition, is not a correct one.

COMMON RHYMES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 1 May 1915
COMMON RHYMEb. The common little rhyme begin. ling "Thirty -days has .September,' I not as old as the hills, at least is ts oJd as 1596, for in that year it was printed in London in an old arith aetic. This is how it reads in ita >riginal form "Thirtie daies hath Septembel April, June and November, Februarict sight and twenty alone, all the' rest ;hirtie and one. The rhyme beginning, "Multipli :ation is vexation" is likewise not in outburst of modern scholars, for .t is found in a manuscript of even in older date, 1570: 'Multiplication is my vexation, and Division quite as bad; ihe Golden Rule is my stumbling stool, And Practice makes me mad."

The hand that is all screwed up, holding all the fingers closely toge. ther, and making a hollow of the palm, is a mean man. The hand with fingers like snakes inordinately long, and able to twis' badk the first joints of the fingers, be longs to the hypocrite.
