THE ART OF THE CONJUROR. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
THE ART OF THE OONJUOioH, Science has enabled modern conjur ors to do tricks that would fill the old school of magicians with wonder. Wherever applicable to the stage, the modern magician has adopted the no vol features of inventions, and, com bining them with his sloeight of-hand, has brought forth an entirely new style of magic. A trick performed long ago consist ed of pouring from a single bottle sev oral different liquids into glassea set upon a table in full view of the audi ence. In the first glass was water, in the next wine, in the next milk. The secret lay in the construction of the bottle which was composed of vari ous chiambers. In each of these was placed a certain liquid, the flow being controlled by valves in the bottle's neck immediately under the finger of the ma. gician. The great weakness of the trick lay in this--that the magician d(lid not permit the bottle to go out of his hand to be examined by the audience; but the re cent discoveries of chemists enable the ma...

THE "SILENT SISTERS." [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
THE "SILENT SISTERS." There is a community of women near Biarritz who pass their lives in silence. They live and die in the onvent of the Silent Sisters, and are bured in silence in the little cemetery wilhin the walls of the grounds. At four o'clock, win ter and summer, they leave their bare cells, and for three unbroken hours tell their beads and say their prayers, until they are summoned to their Spar tan breakfast. Two more hours they spend, later in the day, with their ro series and prayers in a secluded cor nor of the chapel, the rest of the day being devoted to work of various kinds and to meditation. In the refectory--a dark, uninviting chamber with sand'dxl floor, along which run wooden tables and bonches--the tables are spread for the midday meal. with an array of brown wator-ijugs and wooden spoons and forks (displaved on coarse serviettes, which take the. place of a tablecloth. During the meals not a sound is heard--a wlhisper even would be a grave offence bringing swift...
USEFUL BYE-PRODUCTS. What Is Gained With the Saving Habit. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
UBEFUL BYE-PRODUOT8. What is Gained With the Saving Habit. By John M. Oskison. Credited to T, T. Munger is the fol lowing;: "The habit of saving is itself an ed ducation. It fosters every virtue. It teaches self-denial. It cultivates a sense of order. It trains to fore thought, and so broadens the mind. It reveals the meaning of the word busi nces, which is something very differ ent fronm its routine." Solf-denial, a sense of order and fore thought are the very vitals of business success. They are enough to will a modest success for anybody. They are not hidden from the sight of anybody but lie within the reach of all. And Mr. Munger believes that by acquiring the habit of saving you will get these essentials as a by-product. Business success means simply using care to see that what comes in shall always be a little more than what goes out. It means being sure that every dollar invested shall bring a few cents more than a dollar within a reason. ably short time, Very soon the busi n...

HISTORY OF THE SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
HISTORY OF THE SAW. The earlest tool that has been traced in Egyptian history is the saw, It was found first, in the form of a notchced hronzo knife in the third dynasty, or about five thousand years before theim Christian era, aid was followed in the fourth and fifth dynaities by large tootheod saws, which woro used by car penters; but there alre no Idated speci ,ions until the seventh century before the Christian era, when the Assvrians used iron saws. The first kniv?s on reerd were made iout of flint, and woro, in fact, saws with miinute teeth, They probably were used for cutting up animals, as the tooth would break away oven on soft wood. Rasps, which are but a form of saw, wore first made of shoots of bronze punched and coiled round, but the Assyrians in the sov enth century used the straight rasp iuado of iron tiniiilhur to tho modern typo. The memory of ai witneos is usually eitheor too good or too bad.

THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
THE INDUSTRIOUS MOUSE, Many years ago a studious Scotaman named David Hutton proved that stores of the profitable energy were go. ing to waste among those tiny but active folk, the ordinary domestic mice. In the summer of 1812 I had occa sion (he wrote) to be in Perth. While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by the French pris oners in the depot there, my attention was attracted by a little toy house with a wheel in the gable that was rtunning rapidly round, impelled by- the activ ity of a common mouse. For one shil ling I purchased the house, the mouse and the wheel, But how to apply half-ounce power, which is the weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length the manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicable. The investigator found that an ordin ary mouse would run on the average ten and a-half miles a day; hlie had one mouse that ran the remarkable distance of eighteea miles in that time. A half penny's worth of oatmeal was s...

WHAT PEOPLE DO. By Walt Mason. "I used to insist that this is the best of all possible worlds," remarked the druggist, "but the moro I read the newspapers the more I findl that be lief slipping. There is so niuch ingra titude in tho world that a man can't shako a stick at it. 1 was reading a hideous story in the newspaper this morning, "An old woman in a small Wisconsin town was taken to the poorhouse the other day, and the journey broke her heart. In her better days, when she was able to work and earn money, that woman made a business of adopting children and giving them a chance in life. She reared three iirls, and all of them married well and live in comfort able homes at this hour. And not one of the three would lift a finger to keep the old woman from the poorhouse. Such a story as that makes a man won der whether human nature isn't a rem nant counter affair.' "Before a man makes up his mind to condemn the human race because of such a story," said the village patri arch, "be sh...

NORTHCOTE PICTURE [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 17 January 1914
NORTHCOTE PICTURE THEATRE This week's attraction has been wit nessed by thousands. It is a pictorial representation of Zola's great book "Germinal," which deals with indus trialism-the fight between worker and master. It would be impossible to con ceive anything more powerful, anything more realistic, or anything more sorrow ful. The great railway works and min ing scenes are wonderfully portrayed, while the seething discontent of the menn, the work of the agitators, the incidents of the great strike, the light between the masses and the military, and the ul timate calamitous ending of the trouble are presented with surprising realism, and hold with bated breath the interest of patrons for over two hours. There should be a crowded house to witness "Germinal" to-night. Matinee this afternoon as usual. 'The star picture for the new pro gramme, commencing Monday next, will be "The King of tile Air," depict ing the romance of aviation, through the medium of a strong dramatic story. On S...
