JEW'S HARP WHICH WON A FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

JEW'S HARP WHICH WON A FORTUNE. If the Jew's harp (which, by the way, has nothing to do with the He brews) is revived for the solace of those in the trenches in this war, it ought really to attain its popularity arnbng the Germans. For there is an historical example of the instrument bringing luck to a German soldier. One of Frederick the Great's warriors so charmed the King with his perform ance on two Jew's harps that he gave him his discharge and a large money present, and enabled him to amass a fortune playing at concerts. And the greatest performer on it was a Ger man, Charles Eulenstein, whose exhi bitions in London in 1828 were very popular—'but also, unfortunately, fatal to his teeth. Judgment is a possession of an enormous value to a nation, and, in proportion as it contains men of judg ment, in direct proportion will that nation prosper. The two working men had exhaust ed the subject of the war, and were discussing a big company failure an nounced in the morning papers. Sa...

JACK'S PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

JACK'S PRAYER. When the British ships under Lord Nelson were bearing down to attack the combined fleet of Trafalgar, the first lieutenant of the Revenge, on going around to see that all hands were at quarters, observed one of them devoutly kneeling at the side of his gun. So very unusual an atti tude in an English sailor exciting his surprise and curiosity, he went and asked the man if he were afraid. "Afraid!" answered the honest tar, with a countenance expressive of the utmost disdain. "No! I was only pray ing that, the enemy's shot may be dis tributed in the same proportion as the prize-money—the greatest part among the officers."

WHERE RESPONSIBILITY ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

WHERE RESPONSIBILITY ENDS. During the time of the Boer War, a letter had been received by the ser geant-major in an artillery regiment from the War Office with reference to -one Gunner Brown, who, reported dead, had arrived at Woolwich. Could a full and satisfactory explanation of same be forwarded? The non-com. thereupon sought the officer com manding the battery, who dictated the following delicious reply:— "Brown was an old comrade of mine. I visited him when dying, and afterwards attended his funeral. Hence, I know that he is dead, and am considerably surprised to hear of his return tp Woolwich, but please ex onerate me from further blame, inas much as I am not responsible for his subsequent movements."

SUNSET AND DAWN CHAPTER XXVI. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

By SFFIB ADELAIDE ROWLANDS. (Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., Lon. & Melb.) All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XXVI. It, was very, very bleak and dismal in that old iiouse standing alone in the rugged northern country. Leah had iong ago grown to hate every stone of. this grim old house. More than once she had petulantly remarked to the Prince that she could not understand what had made him choose to take so dreary a place; and once he had laughed with a shrug of his shoulders as he answered: "Oh! it suits my purpose. And, you know, if you don't care about it you can always go away." But Leah had not gone away. As day followed day and week followed week, that mania of attaching herself so securely to this man that he could not throw her aside grew stronger and stronger and more determined; and when she saw Margaret literally fading out before her eyes (for when they reached Scotland' again after that hurried departure from Paris, the Princess had had a s...

Sandy's Vote. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

Sandy's Vote. Aii old bachelor residing -in Aber deen named Sandy, who earned Ms livelihood by selling firewood, had a donkey and a cart that he went his rounds with. He' therefore had to hire a small shed for a stable at a ren tal of four pounds, this entitling him to a vote. Hard times, however, began to tell on the sale of his firewood; so much so, in fact, that he had to dispose of his donkey and give up the stable. On the polling night he made his way to the place of voting with the in tention or recording his vote as usual. The policeman in attendance told him that his name was not on the electors' list that year, and at this Saudy flared up and angrily asked for an explanation. The policeman said: "Aweel, Sandy, ye see, ye hinna got the donkey noo." "Oh, aye, I see; it was the donkey that had the vote, an' no' me!" replied Sandy earnestly. It is not what we earn, but what we save, that makes us rich. It is not what we eat, but what we digest, that makes us fat. It is not what...

THE BIRTH OF THE WAR LORD. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

THE BIRTH OF THE WAR LORD. On January 27, 1859, Berlin waited for the guns which were to announce the birth of the first baby to the Princess Royal of Great Britain, who married Prince Frederick William of Prussia in 1858. For an heir, 101 guns are fired, and for a daughter only 22. At the twenty-third report all Berlin went mad with delight. The crowd near the palace captured old Field-Marshal Wrangel, clamoring for particulars. "Children," he said, "all is well; it is as fine and sturdy a re cruit as one could wish." Thus was the birth of the Kaiser Wilhelm. announced. But the public little knew of the tragedy which had almost happened, and which might have resulted in the death of the baby Prince and his mother. It is related in a biography of the Empress Fred erick that the bedroom of the Prin cess at the Old Schloss, the Royal Palace in Berlin, was next to the death chamber where a previous king had died. This was kept in the same state as on the day of his death, and the Princ...

GEORGE PEBDAY'S SURPRISE I [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 1 May 1915

GEORGE PEBDAV'a SURPRISE L Mr. George Pebday turned from a survey of the meadows which adjoin ed his well-kept garden with an ex clamation indicative of the fact that something he had Been there had dis pleased him. . "Emily, come here!" he shouted, quite viciously, snipping a side-shoot from one of his precious sweet-peas. Obedient to his brusque request, Miss Pebday made an appearance with a smile, which was partly due to more than a suspicion of the cause of her brothers evident annoyance. "Green-fly again, George?" she ask ed. „ "Just look over the meadows there, said her brother, ignoring the ques tion. "At the rooks—or the sheep's pars ley?" inquired Miss Pebday, looking over the hedge. "At Chrissie and young Bettimer. I've told them both I won't have it, and that's all the notice they take of me."
