"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 c'lvis-e'j.rd i:i? You can't be too partic'lar w!>.en you're a-dealing with magic, and what's a charm 'cept a bit of black art?" "There's something in that," re plied Brace, slowly nibbling at Uie 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 soul 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 stand drinks for two thirsty, penni less friends at the same time. His friendship for Ferrers was fev erishly hot...

"Why, Brace, don't you know an old messmate o' yourn what 'as sailed the Wintry sea with you many a time an' oft?" cried a man of a very nautical cut, whom both Brace and Wood had, oppareptly, purposely avoided recog nising. "Well, now you speak,' I do seem to 'ave seen you before, Jim Ferrers," replied Brace, in a surly to.ne. "I 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 01 or his shm'der ahd jerked his thumb, mysteriously, In the direction of Jack and Nancy, whohad passed just at the very mo ment he hailed the other two. "Bee them two young hearts tlmt beat as one," said Ferrers. "Well, on the day they are married I come Into .1 little fortune—ten golden sover...

A CHINESE FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
A CHINESE FUNERAL. A most curious sight is th> »lineral of a Chinee, and in inscribing BUine it is necessary briefly to relate the mode o£ 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, lie 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 — an...
BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. To be beautiful and to retain that beauty for any length' of time, you must have "No heart and a good di gestion." That sounds dreadful, does 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 \>ath. See that your ...
THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
THE OLD SONGS. ! I'm fond of "Annie Laurie"; To hear it is a boon. Nobody in that soiik declares That he's a Zulu coon. "Washington HeraUl." And I like "HiRhland 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 Buys, Believe me, she's some kid! "New York Mail." And I like "Swanee River," When uttered sweet and low, For no one in that sonp; confides That mother's sot a beau.
CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
CHARACTER IN YOUR THUMBS. Just as the chin gives qualities 10 the face, so Ihe thumb marks tne personality of the hand, and is 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...

Scheme Interested Him. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 9 May 1914
Scheme Interested Him. The "Black Hand" Society wrote a man a letter demanding that he put £1000 in a box at the corner of X and Z Btreets at nine o'clock on Fri day night, or they would blow up the beautiful home of his wife's mother. Instead of the money the man put a note in the box, "Nothing doing in the money line, but the scheme you suggest interests mo." It Is curious that a man and a girl who have found room in the same chair before they marry often find there is scarcely room for them in the same house after they are mar ried. Maude: "She's such a quiet little person that I'm surprised to hear she's wearing a diaphanous skirt." Edna: "Perhaps she believes in the old saying that little girls should he qanM. but not hoard."
