THE FIRST PEN. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914

THE FIRST PEN. In any large city, in the same block, possibly in the same building, can be found in use to-day the first type of pen and the latest. A fine hair-brush was the first Instrument used by man for writing purposes. The Chinepe laundryman of to-day marks his tickets and keeps his ac counts with a camel's hair pen dipped In ink. Next door probably is a white merchant who uses the latest make of steel pen. Between the two, in the long his. tory of the pen, came the reed, then the quill. Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before his time. The reed came into use for wrilting 1n the marshy countries of the Orient. It was hollow and, cut in short lengths, with sharpened ends, it was some im provement on the hair pen. The value of the quill was discov. ered at an early date in the history of civllisation, and its use spread from the...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 March 1914

WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches a man when he Is doing good. 'Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie, 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, but feasts are indigestible things, Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water, If you want work well done, select a busy man-the 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 the 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 the one she cries over, The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families, Instinct is now described a...

The friends heard of the adventure shortly after midnight, and discussed It in awesome tones above the very cabin where Leila watched Desdy in his heavy sleep. This was a rare blow to them, for they perceived immediately that it meant the end of their holiday, Far from being misogynists, in spite of the philosopher, they had throughout the whole of the cruise ig nored woman as an issue, and rarely mentioned her name when it was not prominently in the newspapers. They had believed Hu:.h Donald himself to 'be a man who would never marry, His aversion to the sex had become a by-word among them, and yet here was the very truth, "A girl aboard the Christabel!" But for the light in the cabin, which was unoccupied yes. 4orday, they never would have be. lieved it. Herr Joseph, the steward, broke the news to them, and his tones were tra...
