A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. The completion of the Los Angeles aqueduct, says the "'Scientific Ameri can," marks the successful ending of an arduous struggle with nature in its most rugged aspects of mountain 'and desert, and with powerful and subtle private interests for the pos session of a priceless supply of water. The ten aqueducts of ancient Rome were marvels of engineering skill and durability; but their construction stretched over a period of five cen turies, against the eight years that have elapsed since the Los Angeles aqueduct was first proposed, and the length and dimensions of the ancient .Roman aqueducts bear no comparison with that of modern Los Angeles. The longest of the Roman aqueducts was .62 miles, while the Los Angeles aque duct is 254 miles in length, from the fntake on Owens River to the city limits of Los Angeles. The irrigation aqueducts of the Inca Indians of an cient Peru, one of which wa3 360 miles long, are among the wonders of the world, especially so whe...
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich In a hurry? It bo, here is a recipe—'buy wrecks. A beach boat which cost about £200 to build was, after it had been run down oft Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a finer bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought a wreck on the South Coast. Ho obtained from it nearly eighty tons of copper fittings and sheathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tons of iron, fittings, rope, etc., besides a largo quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depouds on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely "where the specialists ohlne. Two purchases of a well-known dealer -in-"Wree)»A£l,_Aiifl ."waste" generally cons...

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, with its silent melodrama under tho downing heavens—or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Mouffetard—or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your peoples—or the ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France—little Paquerette Is dead. And you are old now and married, and there are the children to look out for—they're at the school age — and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, four thousand miles beyond the seas— Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city—it is Youth. And Youth never dies. To Y...
A CURIOUS PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
A CURIOUS PROCESSION. In the deep pine forests of Norway the wood-cutters sometimes find a serpentine object, fifty feet long, crawling slowly over the ground. If they did not know that it was mado up of millions of little worms, they might be frightened by its peculiar appearance. These worms, called the sciara, gather during July and August in large numbers, preparatory to migrat ing in search of food or for change of condition. When setting oist on this journey, they stick themselves to gether and form a huge serpentine mass, often reaching a length of be tween forty and fifty feet and several inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an inch in length, and barely wider than a fine needle,, the number required to compose a line of the size above men tioned Is enormous. Their pace is very slow, and upon meeting an obstacle, such as a stick or stone, they will either writhe over or around it, sometimes breaking into bodies for this purpo...

Taught by Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
Taught by Experience. He entered the shop of a fashionable bootmaker, a look of determination on his face. It was such a look as one sees on the face of a man who is firmly resolved to carry out, at all ha zards, a decision which will change the whole course of hiB life. "H'm!" he began, as the assistant stepped forward and politely question ed him as to his requirements in feet beautifiers. "I want a pair of shoes for my wife, Mrs. Brown." "Yes, sir, certainly," said the young man, briskly. "Same style and size as last week?" "Same style. Size, fives—wide fives," replied Brown, decidedly. "But—er—excuse me, Mrs. Brown only takes—that is, she usually has three-and-a-half," exclaimed the assist ant, who knew tho lady well. "Are you married, young man?" queried Brown, sternly, the look of de termination deepening on his care worn features. "Br—not yet, sir," answered the shopman, blushing. "I thought not," returned Brown. "I am! I am not going to suffer half an hour's purgatory eve^y ...
WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring foototeps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbing through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the ibottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; (!Tis the Bummer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing foy the beam). But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll 'be wading To the Qlty through the pathway at the bottom ...
START. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
START. There's art in a start. Every good thing has waited for years, perhaps for ages, and only for a starter. The good things in our life have waited in the same way, perhaps are wailing still. The art of start is this: Just begin. "Don't wait to feel like it, for you won't. Don't wait till it is easier, for it never will be. If the thing ought to be done, start It, and start it now.

CAN THE PUBLIC WIN? Iti proportion to its population* Australia devotes more tima and money to horse-racing than any country in the world. .If is the gambling element, of coarse, tiiafc sustains the racing to such aa extent^ and in •'Life" for May, just pub lished, the question is discnssecL, 1 •' Has the general public that sup ports the racing a fair chance of I coming out on the right side in itff | transactions with the bookmakers?™ G-. M. Dash, who has had a vary j long and varied acquaintance with, racing, argues tho question very closely, and produces a list of arga ! ments and examples to illustrate I the felicitous logic of the racecourse gambler. He analyses many of the systems and superstitions npois. which tho man-tn-the-street specu lates his money, and shows how futile these are. Without in any way adopting the pulpit attitude, but merely as a hard-headed busi ness man, he reiterates " Punch's"* advise to those about to gamble, " Don't." This is one of a aeriea o£ spec...

FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. Interesting information is given in "How to Become a Boxer" regarding earnings o£ men who have won laur els in the ring. Packy M'Farland, it is stated, was discovered to have box ing talent when working at the age of fifteen in the Chicago packing yards. Before he had reached the age of eighteen he had taken part in no few er than eighteen professional con tests, all of which he won. He is not twenty-five years of age yet, but he has accumulated a fortune of about sixty' thousand pounds. Battling Nelson, after twelve years of fighting had a bank roll of £40,000, which grew pretty rapidly during the five years which followed until he re tired.

The gross earnings of Jack Johnson between December 26th, 1908, and July 4th, 1912, are computed to be over £100,000. From the Jeffries con test...
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married and in the prime of their maturity, are apt to smile at the remembrance of their dreams of the ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum drum husband who perhaps goes to Bleep after dinner regardless of a wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely in their Im agination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which the husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings on &lt;both sides. But both husband and wife h&vo grown to love the imperfect human being who has lived with them for so many years, and "who haB long taken the place in their hearts of the most fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by the name of their ideal.

BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. To bo beautiful and to retain that beauty for any length of time, you must have "No heart and a good di gestion." That sounds dreadful, docs it not. It does not mean, however, that you must be callous and indiffer ent to the suffering of others, only that you should not needlessly grieve and worry over your own sorrows. You should cultivate the feeling, "Well, it can't be helped I must make the best of it." A smile is always more acceptable than a tear; smiles belong to youth, and joy, and content, and are aids to beauty. It is part, of every woman's business to look her best. Here are a few hints to assist you. Ward off indigestion by proper at tention to food, and exercise all your muscles every day for at least ten minutes. Absolute cleanliness-is essential to beauty. You must bathe at least once every day find out whether morning or evening suits you best, and wheth er you can take a cold or a warm bath. See that your bedroom a...

III. "My own darling Nance, I " "Stop a bit," interrupted Ferrers, shrewdly, "I'm not so sure that her name is Nance and, anyway, that's a sight too familiar an' hopeful to please a girl of her spi/.t. What's the name she were cUris.o'.'.?d in? j You can't be too partic'lar w!;rh you're a-dealing with magic, and what's a charm 'ccpt a bit of black art?" "There's something in that," re plied Brace, slowly nibbling at the end of the penholder. "But I'm ■blessed if I know what she was sprin kled under." "Here's Tom Wood; he's pretty cute about gals," said Ferrers. "We'll ask him." And 'before Brace could enter a protest, Wood was hailed and seat ed at the table, making the (unwel come) third. Brace, who was the 60ul of selfish ness, had no further use for Wood, since he was taken up so much with Ferrers, so he had dropped him like a hot potato, not feeling inclined to Etand drinks for two thirsty, penni less friends at the same time. His friendship for Ferrers was fev erishly hot, and ...
FRESTON TOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
FRESTON TOWER. At Freston, near Ipswich, stands a picturesque building known as Fres ton iTower, which was constructed un der somewhat romantic circumstan ces.

CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 2 May 1914
CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities to the face, so the thumb marks tne personality of the hand, and !b an unerring index to a man's natural strength or weakness of character. The man with a long, straight thumb, square at the tip, possesses good mental capacity, and can al ways be relied upon to carry out successfully any work with which he may be entrusted. His temperament is even and judicial; he is a born governor of men, overcomes difficul ties, carries himself with dignity, and by his ability to concentrate all his faculties upon the matter in hand, combined with his tenacity of pur pose, rapidly becomes a power among his fellows. If the thumbs be long, thick, and heavy at the tip, with the joints prom inent, a tyrannical and cruel nature Is indicated, everything being viewed from an intensely selfish standpoint. A short, straight thumb shows ob stinacy and driving power. If very thick and heavy at the tip, a brutish, unreasoning disposition will be no t...
