PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

PORTRAIT OF A GIRL. About whose proud and famous name, this day. Are you adream? Your silken lashes seem Heavy with secrets your red lips would say: Around your placid brow what rever ies play Their Merlin tuue, In this light-hearted noon Of girlhood, with its green and golden Way? Within your gentle, rosy-finger hands, Where lilies sleep, Great destinies you keep— Thrice happy he who kneels to your commands! From that gold disarray, your crown, what strands Shall gleam anew Some distant day, when you Wrap round a smaller head these fillet bands! What though the stealthy years en croach, you'll wait With your slow smile, A brief, imperious while, Dreaming white dreams till Love smiles from the gate— Then, in the darkling years, may kindly Fate This solace lend My dim eyes, and forfend That gracious, gradual end to youth'3 estate W. G. Tinckom-Fernandez in Febru ary "Smart Set."

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. By One Who Has Suffered. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. j By One Who Hat buffered. I Was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address i wan • to give to the Try Excelsior Class for Boy3 Only that evening. I had nearly hit on a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, who was absorbed in reading "The Marchioness of the. Mill" on au ad joining seat. The infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "Delightful child," he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to the child. I started. Was this infant to be forced upon me? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable." said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after noon he has said nothing but 'Ni...

Good Advice. There are thousands of people who suffer from common ailments, such as who have no idea that their suffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver. The reason that treatment by Warner's Safe Cure has been so successful in caseB of the disorders named is that Warner's Safe Cure exercises a spe cifio healing and stimulating influ ence upon the kidneys and liver. Once the kidneys and liver are re stored to health and activity, the uric and 'biliary poisons, which cause the disorder, are removed from the system by the natural channels, and pain, due to the retention of the poi sons, ceases.

Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

Gone Again. At a certain public scliool it was the custom for the, teachers to write oh the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The April number of "The Story teller" Magazine is just in. The read er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence. Jus tus Miles Forman, Mrs. Baillie Rey nolds, Warwick Deeping, I. A. R. Wy lie, Captain Shaw, J. O. Curvvood write in this number. These authors could not write poorly if they tried, -and ' it seems as though they are at their best in this number. Besides .the above writers H. de Vere Stac poole, author of, "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all these attractions, it is no wonder that the "Storyteller" is so great a favorite with magizine readers.

ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 26 March 1914

ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is known to liave exceed ed tlie speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous -photographs of one fa mous sipecimen showed the full length of one complete* stride of about 26ft. In the stride of the fastest racers the hindquarters and limbs are raised con siderably higher than the shoulders, and'from this relatively great height brought, downward and forward, .wide ly separated from each other, to avoid striking, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed o£ the dog. The dog, on the other hand, does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fif teen yards per second under the most favorable conditions.
