THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914

THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to Bcratching-ehedB the drinking vessel is often- a source of a good deal of trouble and lose of time, for the water getB fouled by the birds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area round aibout the vessel is often made sodden and ottensive by the eplash ings. To remove or avoid these evila IB a simple matter. Take a half-bar rel, place it upside down in the shed, ana put the drinking vessel on the top of it. Thus elevated, the water will not get fouled, nor will the litter be made wet. And the birds, being confined, will rather enjoy than other wise the diversion of hopping up to tha liquor table when ho inclined.

A CHINESE FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914

A CHINESE FUNERAL. A most curious sight is th> tuneral of a Chinee, and in describing i!»e same it is necessary briefly to relate the mode of procedure just prior to and after death. When a Chinese becomes danger ously ill, if the relatives consider there is no hope of his recovery, his face is turned towards the window, and once thus turned, he seldom re covers. In passing, I think it just as well to mention that in China it is not necessary to have any medical train ing or pass any qualifying examina tion to become a doctor, but the aver age Chinese medico has usually pre pared himself by careful perusal of books written for that purpose pre vious to establishing himself as a curer of ills. Of course the success of his practice depends largely on his ability to cure. But there is no law in China to prevent an unqualified man from practising. After death, the body is taken into the parlor, where the corpse Is dress ed in special clothes—the best the family are able to procure — ...

THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914

THE OLD 30NG8. I'm fond of "Annie Laurie"; To hear It Ib a boon. Nobody in that song declares That he's a Zulu coon. "Washington Herald." And I liko "Highland Mary"; The rhymes are only fair, But no one in that song asserts His loved one is a bear. "Cleveland Plain Dealer." I like "The Miller's Daughter." I do; I always did. Yet no one in that lyric says, Believe me. she's some kid! "New York Mail." And I like "Swanee River," When uttered sweet and low, For no one in that song confides That mother's got a beau.

II. "Why, Brace, don't you know an old messmate o' yourn what 'as sailed the frintry sea with you many a time an' oft?" cried a man of a very nautical cut, whom both Brace and Wood had, apparently, purposely avoided recog nising. "Well, now you speak, I do • seem to 'ave seen you before, Jim Ferrers," replied Brace, in a surly tone. "X sup pose you stopped me on purpose to give me back them two pounds you borrowed last voyage we 'ad together, or, maybe, the thirty shillings you owed afore then?" "Maybe I did, an' maybe I didn't," replied Ferrers, in a non-committal tone; "anyways, you're sure of your money one of these days." "I'd feel a sight surer if I 'ad it in my ^pocket now." Ferrers glanced oirr his shoi'der and jerked his thumb, mysteriously, in the direction of Jack and Nancy, who had passed just at the very mo ment he hailed the other two. "See them two young hearts that beat as one," said Ferrers. "Well, oa the day they are married I come into a little fortune—ten golden s...

THE CHARM. By Maud Douglas. I. "Can't think wliat the women is a coming to nowadays," said Jim Brace, with an air of .moody disgust; "time was when they knew a good chance when it come in ttieir way, an' was, what a young captain as I once sailed under, who 'ad a strong turn of the poet in 'im, used to say, 'grate ful for a good man's love,' but now— lor! They're that saucy, an' that flighty, that they'd flirt with any think!" "Meaning Nancy O'Brien," put in Tom Wood, meaningly; "well, they're all alike, are the lasses, an' she's a partic'ler neat little party, is Nancy; it's haraly to be wondered at that she thinks a lot of herself, an' doesn't jump into a man's arms." "Well, in course, if she wasn't something a bit out of the common I shouldn't be wanting to throw my self away upon her, should I?" said Brace, in a tone denoting more than a touch of indignation. "What could she be wanting more than she'd get .in me? Here I am, in the very prime ! 0 'life, never been out of a ship, ...

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd so where the old oakB gather, Serene and Rood and strong, And they would not sigh and tremlia And vex me with a song. The pleasanteat sort of poet Is the poet who's old iind wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And sileuce rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about tho wars to be fought And the ...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914

CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa in South Kensington. Even the smallest villars are expensive in that part ol the world. She was a ! slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, 'but no one could call Margaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his n.other, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. Slu was very poor, very poor in deed, and did not like poverty. She was considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, and when, some time ago, she ha1 met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, dark-eyed...
