A Farewell Supper. On the retirement of a rich manu facturer, who had been consistently stingy in his business career, his work men presented him with an illumina ted address, smartly designed by. one of their number. He was obviously touched by the gift, and acknowledged It In a neat little speech. "But there's one thing about It I can't quite understand," he added. "What does that little Bketch in the corner represent?" "That's a picture of you giving your workmen a supper," the artist explain ed. "But I never did much a thing la mx life!"

The First Match-makers. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

The First Match-makers. The teacher of the village school was giving her class an object-lesson, the subject being "Matches: How • made? Who invented them?" etc. Suddenly she paused, on noticing a tousled-headed boy on the back form playing with something and not pay ing the slightest attention to the les eon. "Hogget, you are not paying at ten- . tion," she said, severely. "Yus, Oi am, mum." "Tell me, then, who made the first match? If you don't answer correctly. I shall severely cane you." Master Hogget stuck his fingers in to his tousled locks, obviously non plussed; then his face brightened, and he blurted out: "Adam and Eve, mum!."- :

Considerate. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

Considerate. Mr. Har'dhitter's claim to a. seat on the local council rested chiefly oil what he called "the gross Incompetence and criminal extravagance" of the present body. ' Individually and collectively, Hardhitter ruthlessly exposed their failings, but in spite of this he failed to win the seat! Worse, infinitely worse, one of his oldest friends deserted, and voted for the other side at the last moment. "How was it, John?" asked the dis appointed candidate, more In sorrow than in anger. "Why did you yote against me?" "Because," responded John, "I thinUs a deal too much aboot ye to send ye amang slch a dishonest set o' rascals as yo've proved them other fellers to be!" i...

A Comrade-in-Arms. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

A Comrade-in-Arms. A. certain military camp in the north* West of Ireland was once the scene ot a rather funny incident. A little boy. who was taking a donkey to the mar ket had occasion to pass the camp, when the band struck up a lively air, and the ass, naturally o£ a nervous disposition, began to tug violently on the rope with which the boy was hold ing him. One of the soldiers thought he saw an opportunity to cause a laugh at the boy's expense for the amusement of a crowd of onlookers; so he called out, as the boy passed: "Hey, youngster, why do you hold your brother so tightly?" The boy looked at the redcoat for a second, and then, as if suddenly In spired, replied: {' "Shurej i'm afraid he might want to 'list in yoar regiment!"

CHILD LOVERS' FATE [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

CHILD LOVERS' FATE A pathetic story of the burning to death of a little boy and girl, who, in the pretty way of children, had been fond "sweethearts" from babyhood, was told at an inquest yesterday at Boughton, Notts (says "The Dailj News and Leader" of December 30). The victims were Elsie Powell and Maurice Pettinger, both aged seven years. On Saturday afternoon, along with half-a-dozen youngsters, the children went into Greenfields Barn to play, ac cording to their custom. The building was stocked with straw. One of the youngsters struck a match and almost immediately the whole place became alight. Terrified, the children rushed out, tut Elsie and Maurice failed to esca pe. After the flames had been extin guished and the roof had fallen in the bodies of two little victims were found huddled up in a corner, where evidently the lad had done his little best to keep his companion away from danger. Both children were burnt practically beyond recognition. The jury returned a verdict of ...

SCROOGE IS HEARD 'BLACKMAIL) AND CACOPHONY." That Christmas is no longer a fes -ivai, but a nuisance, has long; been a leresy privately held by many. But •vith the dreadful example of Scrooge oefore them they have dared to noth ng more than dark mutterlngs. They are of those who give, but •vithout joy, and who let the dogs loose m carollers if the street is so dark hat the dogs cannot be recognised. 3ut this year—It is a fact so signifi cant that the sounds of the knell should be mentioned to all those who Jlaim they retain the true spirit of Christmas—the heretics are publicly stating their heresy. "The Christmas box," said one of hese blasphemers to a "Daily News" 'epresentative, "ought to be sup pressed. "We have had enough of this blackmail, and the risk held over us >f being denounced as curmudgeon, i Scrooge, by all the leeches who have jver said 'Good morning' to us hroughout the year.

LATE QUEEN OF SWEDEN [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

XiAVE QUEEN OF SWEDEN The late Queen Sophie of Sweden was a great reader, and was well ac quainted with many of the religious hooks that have been published in the last thirty years (says "The West minster Gazette"). She read the books of Dr. F. B. Meyer with much appre ciation, and took the first opportu nity of hearing liim-preach on an in cognito visit to London. ■ 'Queen So-; phie: attended several- years ago the! Keswick Convention, with which she' was in full sympathy. Few in tlieH . great- tent were aware that the sweet-i faced elderly lady in blaclc was a Queen. In her many years of ill Health the Queen -was never idle, for: she loved to work for the poor and! needy. The Salvation Army and the late General Booth held a high place in her thoughts. Volumes dealing with foreign missions were perused by Queen Sophie with practical re sults, for she contributed to various special efforts.

ST. PANCRAS [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

ST. PANCRAS Mrs H. B. Irving', famous as tho crea tor of the part of "Trilby" on tho stage, has played many popular roles, but none more popular than that of "pud ding lady" down St. Pancras Avay. Tho name is an invention o£ tho chil dren, and It has stuck. It should be explained to tnose who don't know St. Pancras children that Mrs Irving is one of the visitors who go unobstrusivoly among the poor and give valuable hints on household mar keting and cookery. She related some of her experiences to a "Dally News" representative: "I may find the mother ill in bed •when I visit a home," she said. "Or perhaps she cannot leave the baby and others of the family. They must .lave their meals, of course, and it may not be wise to give the money to buy them. So I go out myself among the stalls in Somers Town and see what I can get. "Well, I can buy 3 lbs. of potatoes for a penny—quite good—a ha'penny worth of carrots. As for meat, it is bought in 'pieces.' I buy them at 3d. or 4d. a pound." "Y...

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED While there is as yet 110 doctor who will say that radium is a "cure" for cancer (says "Tho Daily Express"), there is among- those who have had ex perience of the treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope has received what to a non-medical mind seems like a very wonderful confirmation in results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Home connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence. than has been obtained in the home. • Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the raro and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by Itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients might ...
