THE BOY WHO "CAN'T." [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 April 1914
TIME BOY WHO "CAN'T." He is no particular friend of mine-this boy who "can't," and I don't know very much about him ; and. moreover, what I do know is not at all to his credit. Let me tell you, little folis, just a very little about this young gentleman. The other day--but stay; first of all I ought to tell you hisname. It is Jim. Now, then, to proceed. The other day I heard a little dialogue between Jimand his mother, which, perhaps you may like me to repeat. Here it is:-" Jimmy, dear, will you please get in a scuttle of coal for mother before you start for school this afternoon!" "Oh, mother, I can't. I shall be late, and, oh, well-I can't." And off Jimmy ran, and the poor tired mother herself had to fetch in the coal that made the fire at which Jim warmed his hands when he came home to tea. That wasn't much to his credit, was it Not long ago Jim had a half-holiday, and he meant to have a fine time on the green, kite flying. As he was getting ready to start, his little baby sister...

ON ANOTHER TACL 'You didn't sell a copy of ' How to Make Home Attractive' to that woman, did you ?" "Yes I did," said the book canvasser. "When she came into the room I rose and said that I had this book to sell, but I saw that she did not need anything to make home attractive; so.I begged her pardon for coming and started to leave. She bought two copies." The course of true love never did run smooth, and it would not be half the fun if it did,

THE BIRD IN THE APPLE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 April 1914
THE BIRD IN THE APPLE TREE. My neighbour is a fruit-grower, and th_ noment he catches sight of a bird in one of uis trees he wants to get his gun andshoot .t. Like most of his class he is dreadfully mtspicious of the poor birds, hnd thinks ;leir one object in life is to rob him. I do rot deny that some of them do a great teal of mischief at times, but then they do much greater amount of good at other ,imes. One day I was in my neighbour's garden, and we saw a sparrow busy on a ?ranch low down. "Nowi," said my friend, 'let me convince you. That bird has been pecking and spoiling some of my finest ap ?les. and I will show you the marks of his eicked beak." '"Let me convince you," said I, "that yonder bird is your good friend." We walked up to the tree, and the tird,of course, flew away. " There," said I, 'he has a grub in his bill." "Nonsense!" mid my friend, "it was a piece of apple." VWe examined each of the apples along: ;hat branch, and could find no trace of seakmarks; but we fou...

DIAMONDS INCREASING IN VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 April 1914
DIAMONDS INCREASING IN VALUE. The world's stock of diamonds has in creased enomrnosly. In 1876 the output of the African mines was about 1,500,000 co rats; in 1889 it was over 4,000,000, and the great trust which controls all the principal mines asserts that it has 16,000,000 carats in sight at the present time. In one re spect the diamond industry is different from almost all others. Its product-that is, of gems-is never consumed. Of gold and silver a much larger amount than most people believe is literally consumed in the arts past reobvery, but a diamond once cut goes into the world's great stock and is liable to Come upon the market at any time. Hence the world's annual taking of dia monds, which appears to be steadily in. creasing, even at advaneing prices, is an index of bow much of its surplus earnings it can affard to expend yearly in this par ticular form of luxury. The romance of diamond mining is all gone. It is now e matter of excavating vast beds of blue clay by maebine...

SAID NO MORE. A certain steamer got into a dense fog while on her way down the river. A passenger, anxious to go ahead, went up to the captain, who was at the wheel, and asked why they had stopped. "Too much. fog ; can't see %he river,'" replied the cautious mariner. " But," said the passenger, "you can see the stars overhead." "'Yes," said the captain, "but until the boilers burst we shan't be going that way." The passenger turned in.
INTERCEDING WITH A MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 April 1914
INTERCEDING WITH A MAGISTRATE. A young friend of mine (says a corres pondent), unhappily fell into evil courses, and at last the law got hold of him. He was brought up at the police court, and remanded for a few days. In the interval I had an opportunity of seeing the magistrate, and I told him all the good I could about the young man. I laid particular stress upon his ability and the promising career which his crime had blasted. He listened to all I had' to say pa tiently. Then he asked me: "He is an in telligent, well-educated fellow, is he?" I assented ; and the magistrate re marked : "I am very glad you have told me this ; I was going to give him a month." So I went away well satisfied. The prisoner was brought up again, and the magistrate, after a few remarks about the prisoner's evident intelligence and ability to tell right from wrong, sen tenced him to six months' imprisonment with hard labour, the limit of the law. Since that day my services as inter cessor, have not, stran...
SOMETHING QUITE DIFFERENT. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 11 April 1914
SOMETHING QUITE DIFFERENT. There was a lion tamer who willingly ventured into the cages of the most fero cious beasts, having no fear of them, al though he was often badly bitten; but he had a dreadful fear of taking bron chitis. One day, after he had entered, with perfect composure, a cage containing two half-starved bears and a panther, he shook his head gravely as he came out. " Well, well, sir," he said to a gentle man who stood near, "this is going to end badly for me some day." "You are afraid those ferocious ani mals will devour you, then ?" "The animals? Pshaw! You don't think I'm afraid of them, sir? Not at all; but these cages, sir, are such a dreadful place for draughts 1"
