CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS, Expensive Thoughtlessness. There are few people responsible for more harm In the world than the thoughtless person; and his Dlea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," Is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may be sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started by that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and before the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-halt square miles of streets. 3More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, r8,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38,0,000.000. In Kansas there are st...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A. HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an enmploye of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, .a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com municattlon, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to ind on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward.' Through Austria she traced him to Italy, where lie was found In Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived.- on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Dreher managed to reach New York with his pur...

HONORS EVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

HONORS EVEN. In a certain chulrch there were Ire quent clashes between the minister and the choir. The minister thought ,he choir irreverent and unmusical. The choir thought him too prosy. Each tried to score off the other on -vry pessible occasion. One Sundiy there was a clash wherein the honors were about even. The minister, after the choir had sung the opening l.t:mn, said, with a sig nificant smile, that his text would be from Acts xx. I: 'And after the uproar was ceased.' But the choir, at the sermon's end, retorted very neatly with the anthem: 'It's time to awake from sleep.'

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cuiley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the Idea that some day war will become a thing of the past, andl universal peace will be establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have been given to the cause; but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell. but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. H1ow does'This fit in with the ideal? As far back In the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine class. T...

Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, and tile captain was continually being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. The parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear Ing. "There'," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not." said the parson, and w-ent away satisfied; but soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Iieaven. they're still at it."

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A man need not fear competition when he is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a feast, hbut feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man-the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of- the average man's laughter is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round perhaps that is why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described as...

THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, posslTy in the same building, can be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A flIne hair-brush was the first Instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinese laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts 'with a camel's hair pen dipped in ink. Next door probably is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Bietween the two, in the long his tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came into use for writing in Ithe marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, It was some i.m piovement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov ered at an early date in the history of civillsation, and its use spread from th...
