THE "IFS" OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
THE "IFS" OF LIFE. If it were-if it might be-if it could be-if it had been. One portion of mankind go through life always re gretting, always whining, always im agining. As it is-this is the way in which the other class of people look at the conditions in which they find themselves. I venture to say that if one should count the "it's" and the "ases" in the conversation of hi's ac quaintances, he would find the more able and important persons among them-statesmen, generals, men of business-among the "ases," and the majority of conspicuous failures among the "ifs." The quality which you put into your work will determine the quality of your life. The habit of insisting upon the best of which you are capable, of always demanding of yourself the highest, never accepting the lowest or second best, no matter how email your remuneration, will make all the difference to you between failure and success. ' Dedude: That man called me a liar, a cad, a scoundrel and a puppy. Would you advise me t...

But this morning both hearts were tpecially joyous, for it was the second anniversary or their weddlna day-that day of supreme delight when these two had taken each other for better or for worse "until death us do part."

He returned home from school the othjr day to spend the holidays, us I supposed, and. entering my o.iicc. lie threw his hat on the lloor, select ed an easy-chair, put his feet on my desk, lit a cigarette, inhaled a few putts,. and then, turning languidly to me. ho drawled : " 'I say, dad, do you remember the time you were expelled from school?' "I did. There was no use denying it, for one day, in a burst of cou lidense, X had told him of my esca pades as a boy, and lived to regret that I had been so indiscreet. " 'Well,' said he, .. history has re peated itself.' 1' 'What do you mean, you young rascal ?' I roared. 'Oh !' said he, easily. ' I've been expelled, too.

QUEER THINGS TO EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 8 January 1914
QUEER THINGS TO EAT. ?eSiV 4 Grasshoppers have been eaten from the earliest times. The Scriptures offer abundant evidence of this, and the law of Moses is) very plain in deed in its permission' to the people of Israel to eat "the locust after his kind, the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kinil, and the grasshopper after his kind." There were two ways of preparing grasshoppers to be eaten. They were either crushed in wine an&lt;l eaten with out cooking, or else their wings were plucked oil, and they were boil ed dn salt water and then dried in the sun, when they were ready to be eaten. Ants are eatcu in Africa. Junker relates that the chief of a tribe on the Mesharcb River, in the Soudan, sent liim twenty baskets of ants for pro visions on his journey. They are pounded into a sort of paste, which lis said to taste like liver. Moths and butterflies have often been eaten, and the Romans used beetles as food. The Brazilians are said greatly to esteem a bug t...

"Oh, I should so like to meet him. Do .introduce me," said the girl. "My dear, Lord Tennyson hates to be bothered by strangers," answered the hostess, "and one reason, perhaps, why he comes to see me is that h« | knows I never exploit him iu that way." i "'Oh, but I should love to be able to say I've met him," persisted tho other. "Well, say you have met him and leave it ? at that," was the answer. J The gill, however, would take no rc ! fusal. "Lord Tennyson," said the hostess, when the two had walked together to the seat' where the Lau...

Missen, of Beeac, near Colac.

The parents of the patient were also sent for, who duly arrived and helped to nurse their son. However, despite the best of attention, hemorrhage set in, and the end came as stated above. The late Mr Missen was an enthusiastic tennis player and footballer...
