Knew Him Well. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914
Knew Him Well. It wits a contested will case, and one o£ the witnesses, in tlie course of giving evidence, described the tes tator minutely. "Now, sir," said counsel for the de fence, "I suppose we may take it, from the flattering description you have given of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearance generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exelaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance of mine!" "Indeed! "Well, then, you muBt | have observed him very carefully , whenever you saw him?" pursued counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. "Now, now, don't trifle with the Court, please!

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914
IF WE KNEW. Could we 'but draw back the curtaina ■That surround each other's Uvea, See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it better, Purer than we judge we should— We should love each other better, If we only understood". Could we judge all deeds by motives. See the good and bad within, Often ive should love the sinner. All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity. We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its gourde. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good; - Oh! we'd love each other better. If...

Presence of Mind. In front o£ his Chelsea (Eng.) house Sir Thomas More had a garden and gatehouse, and, as there was a pleas ant view from the summit of the gate house, he used frequently to sit there, accompanied only by his dog. Here it "was that he was found one after noon by a wandering maniac, who crept upstairs and saw the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap!" he cried, and at the same time tried to throw him over the battlements. More had not physical strength enough to resist, but he had the wit to say: "Let us first throw this little dog over." The man immediately threw down the dog. "Pretty sport," said the Lord Chan cellor. "Now, go down and bring him up again."
