Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, anil the captain was continually being asked It there wero any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led tho parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. Tho parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by Borne terriblo swear ing. "There," said tho captain, "do you think those men would swear like that it they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sni-Q they would not," said the parson, nnd went away satisfied; but soon afterwards, getting nervouB again, he rushed to tho spealcing-tubo and listened. "Ah," ho said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at It."
WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
WIT AND WISDOM. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tic. 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, hut feasts are indigestible things. ' . Many a man in tho swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man-tiie 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 tho 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 tho one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that Bhe Is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described as that which tells a woman she 1b right, whether she...

Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment i3 wonderful In Improving the digestion and appetite of ailing 'fowls, and by its action on...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Kegretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe of a large Lancashire firm, threw up his situation and left tor 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 munication, telling her of her faithless lover's (light and informing her of his dddress.

Ho had novor re visited tho scenes of IIIB youth, or been seen by Ills parents and brothers. Forty years hart passed since tho brothers had met.

At Kingston Police Court yesterday (reports "The Daily News" of January 23) the solicitor's table was strewn with valuable silver plate, comprising candelabra, candlesticks, kettles, and other articles, 'found in a sack on a coster's barrow. Two men, Henry Woodbridge, 40, general dealer,, of Chertsey, and Daniel O'Connell,' 24, laborer, of Kingston, were charged with being in the unlawful possession of the articles. It was stated that on the way to the police station O'Connell said: "It is only me and Jingles (Woodbrldge), and if you let him go I will stand the racket of it. I will tell you where tho stuff came from if you let him go. You *vill never find out yourself, as the owners are away, and won't be back for a ,.>ng | time." At the station he pulled out of his pocket some silver serviette 1 rings, a toast rack, and some forks and (spoons, and threw them on the table. "I want to keep poor old Jingles out of it," he said.

DEAR FOOD IN CANADA DEMANDS TARIFF REVISION [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
DEAR FOOD IN CANADA DEMANDS TARIFF REVISION Emphasising the fact that tariff re form and the abolition of food taxes is nc#w the policy of the Dominion Libe ral party, Sir Wilfrid Laurier put for ward a strong pica for the Western farmers in the Debate on the Address in the House *>f Commons last night (states the Ottawa correspondent of "The Dally News"). > He declared that for the first time in 15 years unemployment was rife In the leading cities of Canada. Three years ago there was not a man out of work in the city of Winipeg, but now there were over 3000, and all over the country men were seeking work and not lindlng it. Altogether, he believed that there were something liko 100,000 unemployed in the Dominion. The way to relieve the depression, said Sir Wilfrid, was to reduce the high cost of living by means of down ward revision of the tariff. The cry lug need of the West is fresh mar kets, and the removal of the duties on wheat would be a* well-merited ' concession to th...
KAISER'S EXERCISE WIELDS THE AXE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
KAISER'S EXERCISE WIELDS TIIK AX 13. It is understood that during his usual winter residence ut Potsdam the Emperor William, on the recommenda tion of his physicians, hUs devoted n good deal of time nnd energy to the chopping of wood (says the Berlin cor respondent of "The Telegraph.") Clad in Court hunting dress, the monarch ctHiId be seen almost every morning in the grounds of the palace-of the pri vilege of access to which the public makes but little use at this time of the year-vigorously plying a saw on the trunks and branches of trees, nnd then, with undiminished energy, hew ing the short logs into pieces of con venient size for burning.. In this occupation he was assisted by an expert workman, placed at his disposal by the management of the Uoyal gardens. Not infrequently the Empress watched her consort at his unfamiliar exercise, and jocularly measured up the pile of lirewood to see whether the prescribed dally task had been fully accomplished, while oc casionally an aide-de...
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murdorors liave recently suffered'capital punish ment In Prussia, because only some Tour to eight per cent, of capita! sen tences are carried out In Germany, the proportion in Great Britain being over 5U per cent. The news-paperB common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, ibut it is left to the separate States to choose their own method. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he 1b beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sivord.
FORTUNES REFUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 April 1914
FORTUNES REFUSED. It is said that when It bccanio known Hint the letters of tlio great Irish leader, Charles Stewart Parnell, were to be published, offers to pur chase them wore received troin all over the world, and that one great newspaper proprietor in tho United States sent Jlrs. Parnell an open cheque, upon which she might Inscribe her own price. The offer was refused. Ilabert Browning constantly refused to write for the magazines and re views. Me o'lly departed from his self-denying ordinance on 0110 occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In Ills later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous prices were offered to him oven for a short poem. He put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" to his dying day. But this determination to rcfuso money when It Is offered is evidently not the attribute of the -well-to-do onfyr for a laborer in Pennsylvania lias just refused two fortunes amounting to ,C20,000, which actua...

THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. ' The deposition of the mad kind, Otto or BavaHa, which lias just been deci ded, recalls to the minds ot all music lovers the genius ot the greatest mo dern composer, llichnrd Wagner. For it was King Ludwig, the brother of the poor madman, -who befriended Wagner in the days of Ills greatest poverty, and whose patronage enabled him to produce his Immortal works. King Ot to himself was n friend of this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," "Tannhaubcr," and the .Itlier master pieces of his "Nlebelungenlled," are now popular throughout the world. Hut when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm ol ridicule and contempt, lie wrote some ot them in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time They relied the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and Idealism and tenderness which...

BITER BIT PASSENGER AND PORTER. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which ure sometimes made against railway servants, Mr "W. P, Jackson; the general manager of the North British Railway Company (Eng land), has been telling a good story, the facts of which he said, were ascer tained in the investigation of a com plaint made by the principal actor.
